  • How should I care for my Baby's skin?

    Tests and research that has been recently carried out suggests that it is safer to bath your baby in plain water for the first month. When your baby is born, the top layer of their skin is extremely thin and absorbent. Therefore it is extremely sensitive to germs and chemicals. During the first month, your baby’s skin matures and they will develop their own natural protective barrier. Experts suggest using natural and organic products on your baby’s skin which are free from preservatives, perfume and colours. Continue reading

  • Top 5 Pregnancy Trends for 2013

    Gender-reveal parties, babymoons ( this is a period of time that parents spend bonding with a recently born baby)  and city-named babies are so last year. 2013 brings its own new trends to the table that are sure to keep expectant mums on their toes. These fresh new fads will make your pregnancy the talk of the town — oh no, wait, that was Kate Middleton’s pregnancy…

    But, hey! Don’t let the Royal Baby steal your thunder. Make your pregnancy news
    -worthy with the 5 hot pregnancy trends of 2013.

    It's All in the Name

    Since emerald is the 2013 colour of the year, it's expected there will be a rise in green-themed names: Hunter, Jade, Fern, Olive, and Forest should be among them. We'll also enjoy a departure from city names, like Brooklyn and Paris, while we shift to state names. The popularity of Downton Abbey is sure to bring a rise to early-20th-century names.

    The Year of the Boob

    2012 was a big year for breastfeeding insofar as the media coverage it received. And 2013 is certain to bring more boobs to the mouths of babes as the message is still that 'breast is best!' This is the message being shared at pregnancy classes.

    pregnant_bow_imgSooner Social Sharing

    Gone are the days of waiting until the 12th week to share your pregnancy. Thanks to Kate Middleton (whether she wanted to or not) for her pregnancy becoming world news before 12 weeks and to the ever-increasing over sharing culture of social media, expectant mums are likely to share the news of their pregnancies -- and ultrasounds, symptoms, and detail after detail -- sooner rather than traditionally waiting until after the 12 week scan.

    Neon Nurseries

    Hello, hipsters and trend lovers alike! Pale pinks and muted blues are so yesterday. Adding pops of neon -- pillows, walls, throw rugs -- is going to be the thing to do this year.

    Party, Party, Party

    At-home ultrasound parties to reveal your baby's gender are the next big deal -- blue or pink cakes just don't make the cut anymore. And while baby showers for a second or third or fourth or just-stop-having-kids-now fifth child have long been taboo, they are now becoming the complete norm for any pregnancy because if you did it for your 1st child then why not for your subsequent babies!

  • Baby Boom pushes population to a New High

    sleepwearBritain's population hit a record 63.7 million last year after it grew faster than that of any other EU nation accordingly to figures revealed recently.

    An increase  0f 419,900 in the population is equivalent to a city the size of Bristol and this was put down to immigration and a baby boom, with more births in 2011-12 than in any year since 1972.

    Though net migration fell by 82,000 to 165,000, the population increase was driven by births to recent migrants.

    So with a baby boom, we have seen more and more people having baby showers for their friends and family members as well as all the feel good factors that we have had in the UK over the past couple of years with The Royal Wedding, London Olympic Games, The Queens Jubilee and more recently the birth of Prince George to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  A baby shower party seems to be becoming an event included into the whole pregnancy experience to maintain that feel good factor for Mum to Be as she nears the end of her pregnancy.  The idea of the party is to have some fun and share in the excitement of the imminent new arrival.

  • Gifts fit for a baby Prince from Political Leaders

    Most people settle for a teddy bear, clothes or comforter toy when sending gifts to celebrate the birth of a baby.  But not if you are one of Britain's political leaders who have revealed the unusual gifts that they have sent to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for Prince George.

    They include an apple tree, a blanket embroidered by Spanish nuns plus a set of stories by Roald Dahl, author of Charlie And The Chocolate Factory.  The book set is a gift from David and Samantha Cameron.

    Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg and his wife Miriam sent the first-time parents a large bag of coffee to help them cope with the tiredness caused by sleepless nights.  They also gave George a white cot cover and sheet, embroidered by nuns in Miriam's home village in Spain.

    12494396-apple-treeLabour leader Ed Miliband gave a three-year-old apple tree, which is a traditional gift for a first-born son.  It already has some fruit growing on it and was sourced from local community groups, the Brent Eleven Streets residents association and the London Orchard Project.

    Kensington Palace is believed to have been inundated with new baby gifts from well-wishers around the world including a live baby crocodile named George.  Happily the official gift from Australia's Northern Territory is being kept at a local zoo!!
