Babywearing love – a review of the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me

A photograph collage of a mother wearing her young baby in the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me - Babywearing love - a review of the Wuti Wrap by We Made Me

Little Miss H was six months old when I started babywearing. I bought a bamboo woven wrap and began to carry her for journeys into town or to see friends. I also wrapped her when I was doing chores around the house and she needed to nap. During my pregnancy with Little Mister H, I would imagine our little boy as a newborn baby. And I would become excited about the idea of wearing him. Being able to breathe in…

toTs by SmarTrike Voyage Changing Bag – a review

A photograph of the toTs by SmarTrike Dark Grey Melange Voyage Changing Bag sitting in the sunshine on a pebbly beach _ tots by SmarTrike Dark Grey Melange Voyage Changing Bag _ A review _ Mrs H's favourite things

A changing bag is one of the most important purchases you will make as a new parent. We bought a cheap and basic changing bag when I was pregnant with Little Miss H. It was boring and black. And after a month it needed replacing. So I bought a Cath Kidston floral backpack. Mr H HATED this bag. A pretty floral bag is really not his style. This bag was big enough for Little Miss H's belongings. But I knew that…

Wooden toys wish list for Little Mister H

A collage of fabulous wooden toys for baby and toddler boys - including a fabulous fire engine ride on from Halfords, Grimms conical rainbow stacker and a Bajo wooden mouse and Gruffalo figures - Wooden toys wish list for baby and toddler boys - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Mister and Little Miss H have a lot of toys. But without doubt my favourite are their wooden toys. These are the toys that are enduring classics. They are the toys that they play with over and over again and that fire their imagination. They are also safer for them as wooden toys tend not to have any nasty chemicals. Which is handy when you have a baby who puts anything and everything in their mouth. And my, are wooden toys pretty…

Welcome to the first My Rainbow Baby post of 2017. I have created this series in the wish that it will give hope to anyone who has experienced baby loss or is struggling to have a longed for baby. Little Miss H and Little Mister H are not the only rainbow babies. There are many of them. And I want to share the beautiful and poignant tales of these special little rainbows. I am inviting others to tell these stories. To talk about…

The (not big or fat) quiz of the year

A coloured photograph of a little girl dressed in cold weather gear walking across Camber Sands beach on a sunny winter's day with the beach houses and a bright blue sky in the background - The (not big of fat) quiz of the year _ Mrs H's favourite things

Earlier this week, the lovely Lisa from Mummascribbles tagged me in The (not big or fat quiz) of the year. Lisa has been one of my favourite bloggers and best blogging buddies for quite a while. She is truly lovely. But she is also a brilliant writer. She wrote this fabulous letter to her first born son recently and I am sure it is a post that resonates with all parents of more than one child. For the past two years,…

Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live

A still from the children's TV programme In the Night Garden featuring IgglePiggle, Makka Pakka, Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos - Win tickets to In the Night Garden Live - Mrs H's favourite things

Little Miss H is a fickle sort. Her appreciation of certain TV programmes can wane over time. But her love for In the Night Garden is constant. The adventures of IgglePiggle and his friends are guaranteed to put a smile on her face. She knows the words and dance moves to each character's song (although the Tombliboos are a particular favourite). And she expects Mr H and I to accompany her in the gazebo dance at the end of every episode. That…

Stories for Life – the perfect Christmas gift

A photograph of the front covers of three books from Penguin Random House Children's Books including Max and Bird by Ed Vere, The Dinosaur that Pooped Christmas and The Little Elephant who wants to fall asleep - Stories for Life - the perfect Christmas gift_Mrs H's favourite things

As a child I used to love receiving books as Christmas presents. And I often found a story wrapped up under the Christmas tree. A story book is the perfect Christmas present for children. Books aren't played with and then forgotten about. Your child will not grow out of a book. A book is for life, not just for Christmas. And so I was hugely excited when a package arrived through our door the other day. Penguin Random House Children's Books had sent…
