Forget the baby milestones - everyone knows them. First smile, first solid food, rolling over, teeth, but what about your milestones? You know, the milestones for new parents. So, to inspire your new journey into the big, scary world of parenting we’ve put together a list of highs and lows of the first year.
If you’re looking for a baby product that combines comfort and utility, the muslin blanket wins every time. We’re obsessed. It’s not just about the gorgeous prints (though they definitely make things more fun), - it’s about the function. Every time we think we’ve found all the possible uses for them, we stumble across yet another genius tip from an amazing parent, and end up adding it to our list.
Finding the right gift for a new parent can be a challenge. Aside from wanting to give them something great, an item that they will cherish (if gift-giving was a competition, we’d want to win), it can also be hard to find something that fits their parenting style. It’s a task made all the more difficult by the sheer volume of baby products out there - many of which are totally unnecessary for a baby’s first year. Don’t give up though, because when you get it right, it’s truly special.
It’s a service we love to offer, embroidering each letter ourselves in-house. Then, we wait to see each parent share their happiness with an item of clothing made even more special and personal for their little one. There are a number of reasons why this small embellishment can make such a significant difference to every purchase. Here are some of our favourites.
The New Normal is a phrase most of us are now familiar with. It typically refers to our attitudes toward social distances and masks becoming a commonplace accessory, both of which are set against a backdrop of caring for our society’s greater health in the wake of COVID-19. However, the concept of a post-pandemic normal involves so much more, some of which may bring benefits, especially for independent online retailers.
Being a new mother and weathering a lockdown are two individually stressful challenges. Putting them together is even more difficult! As you try to keep on top of your baby’s routine, remembering your mask and sanitiser, and refreshing to get an appropriate delivery slot for your groceries, stress becomes inevitable. This is why it is crucial to embrace self-care, so that you can fend off such stress, supporting your wellbeing, and enjoying your little one’s first months.

We know the later stages of pregnancy can often feel like a whirlwind, with hormones all over the place, spending evenings figuring out why a changing table has more functions than a transformer and of course training yourself on sticker art for the nursery walls.
