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…

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…

A photograph of a very cute baby boy wearing a gorgeous Penguin Baby Grow and a French Grey Little Kisses Knotted Hat from From Babies with Love AW16 Capsule Collection of organic baby clothing - Organic baby clothes review - From Babies with Love - Mrs H's Favourite Things

Before becoming a mother, I was a charity fundraiser. I cared deeply and I wanted to make a difference in the world. But since becoming a mother, my desire to help other's has increased. And I'm especially drawn to organisations and social enterprises that help disadvantaged and vulnerable children. That is why I was thrilled when From Babies with Love asked me to review some products from their AW16 Capsule Collection of beautiful organic baby clothes.…

Earlier this month we packed up our car and drove for 5 hours to Pembrokeshire. Bluestone National Park Resort in Wales had invited us for an early Christmas break and to visit their 2016 Christmas experience Kingdom of the Elves. This is my first post about our winter holiday at Bluestone. I thought that I would begin by sharing a review of the accommodation, the resort itself and our visit to the Kingdom of the Elves. In a few days time…

Our Advent 2016 Bucket List

A photograph of a branch of frost covered red berries _ Our Advent 2016 Bucket List_Mrs H's favourite things

For Little Miss H's second Christmas I compiled a list of activities for us to do during Advent. Last year I planned to do this again but unfortunately it did not happen. I was so anxious during my pregnancy that I wasn't able to concentrate on anything else. This year everything is different. Little Mister H is almost five months old. Little Miss H is now at pre-school. And I am in a much better place. So once again I plan to…
