Baby Snuglo Clothing

By Katie Piper

There are so many beautiful clothes available for babies nowadays and I can’t resist buying things for Belle! I found babygros were really useful in the early days, easy to put on and take off again! I loved this Alphabet all in one, no need for people to ask “Is it a boy or a girl?”

I have to be really careful when I’m out in the sun and I always wear a high factor sun screen on my face. Of course now I have Belle I have to protect her skin too. I have found some really good products in this range, they are suitable for adults and children and for all skin types. I particularly like the lotion for sensitive skin with a sun protection factor of 50.

My new Nuna IVVI pram

By Katie Piper

I was really excited to take delivery of my new pram the other day. I chose the Nuna IVVI from the range at Kiddicare.  I have prambeen wheeling it around the house on practise runs! It has so many clever features; it can be a pram, a carrycot, or a pushchair facing either way with a 5 position seat. There is storage for shopping or baby paraphernalia and it folds up easily for storage. The carrycot has a built in sunshade to protect baby, and the extending hood is huge. There is even a removable pocket at the foot of the carrycot for valuables!  I can’t wait to take my baby out for her first walk!


The Society of Timid Souls: Or, how to be brave by Polly Morland

By Katie Piper

societyLike many others, I rarely get a chance to sit down and read, but as soon as I opened this book I couldn’t stop.  Hugely empowering, often funny and very real, Polly has set out on a fact finding mission to find out whether it’s possible to learn to be brave. Along the way meeting a variety of people, including a mother who gives herself a caesarean, a man who fixes skyscrapers but is afraid of heights, and a big wave surfer who takes on the sea. It left me thinking about the people for days afterwards – total must read.
