MAMA’S WARDROBE | AFFORDABLE AUTUMN FASHION (BREASTFEEDING FRIENDLY)

Autumn is definitely on it’s way and I have been thinking a lot about updating my wardrobe. Since being a Mama, I have found it really difficult to know what suits me. My body has changed a lot since last Autumn, being pregnant and having a baby will change things just a bit! But I am only twenty-six so I still want to wear clothes that reflect the current trends. As I am slightly obsessed with buying baby boy clothes and currently on maternity leave, budget is an important consideration too. With that in mind. I have put together some current favourites that are all under fifty pounds (and some are actually half price right now!). I have created a board with more ideas for Breastfeeding Friendly Clothes here if you want some further inspo!*Everything in this post is breastfeeding friendly which is obviously important to me because I am still breastfeeding my seven month old.   View Full Post

MAMA & BABY FAVOURITES | 3-6 MONTHS
Newborn products, Fourth trimester, 3 months old, baby 3 months, baby favourites, baby must haves, must have baby buys.

All products are linked below.

Matchstick monkey

This is by far Freddie’s favourite teether. It’s small enough for little hands to grasp easily and he loves exploring the different parts with his gums.  You can apply teething gel to the back of the Monkey’s head and this helps to get the gel to those hard to reach areas. It’s also easy to clean and I am now contemplating buying a back up!

Hey Baby (Baby Sensory Videos)

These videos are so great. When Freddie was around three months he really loved watching the red, white and black versions which gave me a few minutes to tidy up or grab a cup of tea. As he got older he enjoyed the more colourful videos more and was totally mesmerised. We actually paid for the download so that we could use it during fussy car journeys without worrying about the wifi.

Chicco Pocket Relaxer

Freddie didn’t get much use out of this bouncer until we had to start weaning early at five months. He was too little for a high chair so this provided the perfect stop gap. It is super portable and folds up really easily.

CBeebies Octonauts

The theme tune to this has been in my head for about the last two months but it’s Freddie’s favourite thing ever. Now obviously I don’t sit him in front of the television for hours on end but this ten minute show allows me to at least shovel some food down or try and make the house look halfway decent. It’s also been a lifesaver for many a car seat meltdown.

JellyBabaBaby Car Shades

This may seem like an incredibly boring favourite but these are life changing! Honestly. No more faffing with the ones that stick to the window and then fall off pretty much constantly. These go over your window like a giant sock and hey presto. No more worrying about that little bit of sunlight creeping through and irritating your little one.

Connecta Baby Carrier

The Connecta Solar Weave is a very, very thin and light carrier designed for hot weather. The fabric blocks 95-99% of the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays and during our very random British heat wave this was the only carrier that was bearable to wear.  View Full Post
