When Mia was born we loved our Gro Egg. It has different coloured lights for the room temp. I was terrified of getting things wrong and it had a digital display too so you knew the exact temp. I was a lil overkill as a new mum and this helped me loads. Also, parts of our old bedroom were freezing and other parts roasting.
Now, it's the GroAnywhere blind. It's awesome to block out the light otherwise I have two kiddies up at silly o'clock. It can go with them when they sleep out, has no cords to get taffled in and is massive to cover our large windows.
Aww, they are cute backpacks. We got Mia the Ladybug one but need to get Ava one now. I'm thinking the little fairy wings one. I love all the shark stuff for boys though. With the swimming caps and floats and things. So cute.
Thanks, thats lovely.

Oh, I forgot another one that is my favourite but a bit odd. Colour Catcher sheets. There is nothing worse then having your scrummy new baby and finding that their clothes look dingey. Some clothes that are white with contracting strips look really tatty and it can be really upsetting. Colour Catcher sheets are incredible and I still use them now. You know when you watch the advert and they put whites in with a bright red top and you think it's a con. it really isn't, I do it and it is amazing the difference. Even with things you've had for ages and washed a gazillion times.
I had never heard of Grobags until my eldest daughter was a few months old. Until we bought one, we had a real problem with her kicking off her blankets. Grobags are little sleeping bags that unzip from the bottom and do up with poppers that go over the baby’s shoulders. This makes it impossible for them to kick their covers off. They also can’t pull them over their heads, which can be a risk with blankets. They come in different tog ratings (thicknesses) for different times of the year. We used them until she was 2 and a half and moved to a bed. Grobags are one particular brand, but Mothercare sell a similar product called a “Snoozie”. We have several of each in different sizes. Because they can’t kick their covers off, they don’t get cold at night and I really think they have helped my daughters to sleep through the night. Whenever one of my friends is pregnant, I buy one for them as a new baby present because it’s the one thing I wish I'd known about from the start.
