Diono Quantum travel system – A Review

A photograph of a woman pushing her baby boy in a Diono Quantum Travel System in teal blue - she is pushing the Diono Quantum in a beautiful park (called Dunorlan Park in Tunbridge Wells) and is standing in front of the boating lake/ duck pond and there are pedalos in the background - #AdventureReady with Diono Quantum Travel System - A Review - Mrs H's favourite things

A while back the lovely people at Diono sent me their brand new travel system to review. Since attending the launch event and writing up my first impressions about the Diono Quantum travel system, I’ve been putting this fabulous new buggy through its paces. (With some help from Little Mister H of course!) I thought it was about time that I write-up some more considered thoughts about the Diono Quantum Travel System. The Diono Quantum travel system – a review A different…

Celebrating our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces

A photograph of a beautiful 7 month old baby boy at his Welcome to the World party celebrating the birth of our second rainbow baby - Celebrating Our Rainbow Baby with Party Pieces - Little Mister H's Welcome to the World Party - Mrs H's favourite things

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll know that Little Miss H and Little Mr H are rainbow babies. This means that both our children were born following baby loss. And they are the bright and beautiful rainbows in the sky after the heartbreaking storms of miscarriage. After three miscarriages we’d almost given up hope of having a second child. And so the pregnancy with Little Mister H was always going to be our last. No matter how it…

Pao Papoose by We Made Me – A review of the 3 in 1 front and back baby carrier

A photograph of a mother sitting on a log in Knole Park, Sevenoaks in Kent next to her four year old daughter and with her 13 month old son in a Pao Papoose 3 in 1 front and back baby carrier made by We Made Me - Pao Papoose by We Made Me - A Review of the 3 in 1 Front and Back Baby Carrier - Mrs H's favourite things

We’ve been working with the fabulous brand We Made Me since Little Mister H was first born. We’ve previously reviewed their stretchy wrap, the Wuti Wrap. And we’ve also been sent the Pao Papoose Carrier and Soohu Sling to test. The Wuti Wrap was amazing and in the first few months after Little Mister H was born it was used during every dinner and bedtime. It was the only way that I managed to survive those croup filled evenings. However,…

The sadness of not being able to breastfeed my babies – My breastfeeding story

A sepia tinted photograph of a newborn baby girl having skin to skin and lying in her Mummy's arms - The Sadness of Not Being Able to Breastfeed My Babies - Mrs H's favourite things

This week is World Breastfeeding Week 2017. A week dedicated to promoting, protecting and supporting breastfeeding. I agree with it wholeheartedly. But this week has made me sad. Because I still have issues about the fact that I was not able to breastfeed my babies. Little Miss H is now four years old. But even after all this time, I feel guilt that I was not able to breastfeed. And I feel a tug in my heart every time I…

“Baby mine, don’t you cry. Baby mine, dry your eyes.  Rest your head close to my heart Never to part, Baby of mine.” Happy birthday, baby of mine. Today you turned one. Our second rainbow baby is growing up. This time last year I had just given birth. And you had already begun to fill our lives with huge bundles of love and joy. Earlier on in the day, Andy Murray had won Wimbledon. Little Miss H and I had…

Now the miscarriages are over

A photograph of a woman walking with her baby in a carrier. She is hugging him and walking through some gardens and by lush green trees - this is the featured image for a post entitled Once The Miscarriages are Over - Once The Miscarriages are Over - Mrs H's favourite things

Trigger warning: you may find this post upsetting if you have experienced miscarriages. In a little over a week our rainbow baby boy will turn one. That is a whole year of having his sunny presence in our lives. And a year of knowing that the miscarriages are far behind us.  My last miscarriage was in May 2015. And in September 2015 we were given the news that the miscarriages were unexplained. That there wasn’t a known reason for our…

Parenting lessons from bluebells

walking through the bluebell woods i learnt something about parenting and life. I learnt a valuable life lesson. Parenting lessons from bluebells - Mrs H's favourite things

How did you spend your May Day Bank Holiday? I spent it going through boxes and boxes of baby clothes. Tiny outfits that our little girl and boy wore when they were younger. The first sleepsuit that we dressed them in when they were born. The outfit they wore when we brought them home. The dungarees they were wearing when they met their grandparents. The party outfits that we bought for their Welcome to the World celebrations. Looking through these…

Beautiful summer clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé

A photograph of a beautiful nine month old baby boy modelling some Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé and particularly the Dinosaur Print Baby Dungarees and the White Poloshirt Baby Bodysuit - Beautiful Summer Clothes from JoJo Maman Bébé - Mrs H's favourite things

The recent glimmers of sunshine have turned my thoughts to summer. I can already imagine Little Miss running around the garden in pretty summer dresses. Or Little Mister H taking his first tentative steps while wearing a cute pair of dungarees (I do love my boy in dungarees). And JoJo Maman Bébé is always my first port of call when I am looking to buy beautiful summer clothes for my children. We were very lucky that JoJo Maman Bébé recently sent Little…
