Maternity Clothes Loan

Another pile of maternity clothes back in from being out on loan. This collection is all around size 12.

All sorted through before going out again straight away to another mama to be.

Did you know I loan out maternity clothes? Much to my husband’s dismay 😆. He goes nuts about the storage but generally I never have a the clothes hanging around at home for too long. There is always another mummy to pass them on to.

When I was pregnant with my first bean I found it really expensive kitting myself out with a whole new wardrobe. I’d only fit in some things for a month! It seemed so wasteful. So I decided to loan out the clothes I’d bought to other mums to help them out.

As time has gone on my collection has grown and grateful mums have donated more and more to my stash. I now have a size 8 bag, two large size 10 ones(one winter season and one summer) and two large size 12 ones with a few larger sizes.

Occasionally I have a little clear out of things that are looking a bit tired or have gone out of fashion but for the most part the clothes are all really well looked after.

If you or anyone you know is interested in loaning a bag just drop me a Message and I’ll add you to the list for when a set next comes back in.

Baby classes aren’t for everyone….

For some people, attending a baby group or class is either not their idea of fun or just not possible. Being unable to drive, or not having access to a car can make it difficult to get to some class and group venues too.

Not everyone feels comfortable in groups of people and it can be quite daunting to get out on your own with a new baby.

I offer 1-1 sessions in the comfort of your own home or mine. I provide all the towels and oil and information so all you need to do is relax and enjoy some lovely bonding with your baby.

We can focus on any areas of concern such as constipation, wind or congestion or I can just share with you a general routine for helping both you and your Baby to relax and hopefully aid better sleep for both of you.

The session can involve just one person and Baby (or a doll if you’re looking to learn a few strokes before Baby arrives) or can include your partner, other children or family member or group of friends.

3 Months old and ready to mingle!!

What has been your favourite thing to do with Baby?

As this treasure is my last baby I need to make the most of her and life with a little baby and soak it all up!!

She’s becoming more alert and interested in what’s going on so I’ve been thinking about which groups or classes to take her along to.

It’s nearly 4years since I last had a little baby so I’m thinking there are probably some new things out there.

So, what have been your favourite groups or classes to attend with your baby?

Fab taggy blankets by Crafts for Tadpoles

These cute taggy blankets are made by the grandma of one of our lovely baby massage babies. She very kindly donated a set to Chilled Beans for the babies at our classes to snuggle up to. My littlest Bean has taken a liking to one of them and swiped it as her comforter for sleep time. She likes scrunching the blanket up and pressing the fluffy side of it against her face when she’s dozing off. We’ve found that the tags aren’t just great for little fingers to fiddle with but also very handy for attaching the blanket to pushchairs, car seats and highchairs.

I will definitely be ordering a few more. Thank you Crafts for Tadpoles!

A lovely relaxed class yesterday…

Our class at Ockbrook yesterday was lovely and relaxed. We had time for a chat, a drink and a piece of cake all whilst spending some quality time massaging beautiful babies in the warm cosy room.

I was treated to some lovely birthday gifts, cake and a balloon too! Thanks ladies!

Next week we’ve got Laura from Erewash Love to Carry popping by to talk to us about slings and Sling Swing at the end of the session and another lovely Laura from The Organic Life will be with us at the beginning of the session with some samples and products for sale. Both ladies are super knowledgeable so it will be a brilliant opportunity to ask them a few questions.
