Our first parenting party with Mother & Baby magazine

Posted by: ,

We love a party, we do. Last night at our Hedge End store we hosted the first of our parenting events with our friends from Mother & Baby mag. Here’s the story in pictures…

Mums, dads, babies, grannies, grandads, aunties and uncles joined us for an evening of expert talks, beauty treatments, product demos, canapés, goody bags, fizz and fun.

Here’s Cara, inventor of the SnoozeShade and all-round inspiration. She spoke about becoming a mumpreneur and how she gets the work-life-baby balancing act right (most of the time!) Look out for a video of her talk coming soon.


Sleep specialist Rebecca, author of Baby Sleeping Trust Techniques, gave some excellent tips on helping babies sleep better and longer. If anyone knows, she does; at five months her son Harry was up eight or nine times a night. Happily he’s a contented sleeper now.


Founder of award-winning reusable nappies Tots Bots, Claire was on hand with demos and advice for mums and dads thinking of going green.

Friends Holly and Sally did well! “So far we’ve bought the Rainforest Jumperoo and a Bumbaloo – it’s a great evening, everyone’s been so helpful.”

It was a real pleasure to meet Natalie (below left) and Tina. These ladies are quite the double act. Not only are they great friends and not only do they both have two and a half year olds but they’re due to have their second babies within two weeks of each other! “We love it here. My son Thomas thinks the trolleys and toilets are great!” says Tina.
