Giveaway: Munchkin LATCH Newborn Starter Set


Munchkin LATCH

We’ve loved working with Munchkin over the last year, and they’ve sent us so many fantastic products to use from bowls and spoons, to booster seats and bath toys. However, we haven’t actually tried the Munchkin LATCH bottles. When they launched in June of this year we were about to start trying to wean Toby off his bottles all together so we didn’t really need any new ones. If we have another baby though I would definitely use Munchkin LATCH – those clever people at Munchkin have worked really hard to make a bottle that functions as much like a breast as possible, making combination feeding (which we did with Toby for the first couple of months) as easy as it can possibly be. In the words of Steve Dunn, Chairman and CEO of Munchkin Inc

“Lots of bottle companies attempt to make bottles that look like the breast – LATCH was created to truly function like the breast. We know how important breastfeeding is for babies and mums, so we designed a product that provides an easy transition between the breast and bottle and back. We created a bottle that can be introduced into a mother’s breastfeeding routine and ultimately help her achieve her feeding goals.”

There is lots more information all about the LATCH’s innovative features over on the Munchkin website here.

And those lovely people at Munchkin are giving away a LATCH Newborn Starter Set worth £29.99, which includes 2 120ml bottles, 2 240ml bottles, 4 Stage 1 teats, 2 Stage 2 teats and the LATCH bottle & teat brush, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is complete the Rafflecopter below.

Win £50 to spend at Konfidence

Konfidence Give away

We were delighted when we were asked to be Konfidence Swimologists earlier in the year and Toby has loved trying out the Konfidence Babywarma along with his NeoNappy and AquaNappy. We also put the Sun Protection Suit and hat to good use this summer too! After four blocks of Turtle Tots lessons we are giving weekly swimming a bit of a break for the moment. Toby has been having a bit of a wobble lately and has had so many coughs and colds since starting nursery that we’ve had to miss quite a few classes. I’ve really enjoyed taking Toby swimming though, and it has definitely given me much more confidence to take him in the pool by myself. We’re definitely going to keep swimming as often as we can manage and hopefully get Toby back into lessons when he’s a bit bigger.

Along with a break from swimming lessons our time as Konfidence Swimologists is also coming to an end. Konfidence are already looking for some new Swimologists for 2015 and we’d really like to thank everyone at Konfidence for giving us the chance to work with them and try out their fantastic products this year.

And because the people at Konfidence are just plain lovely they’ve also given me a £50 voucher to give away so you can get your hands on some of their lovely swimming gear too!

Review: Joe Browns clothing (plus £50 voucher giveaway)

Joe Browns

Most of my clothes these days seem to come from the supermarket – just bits and pieces I pick up alongside the weekly shop! Added to which I’m still trying to lose my baby weight so I’m trying not to buy too many new clothes at the moment. We’ve got our holidays coming up in a few weeks though and I really did need some summery clothes to wear so I was very pleased when Joe Browns got in touch and offered me the chance to review some items from their range. Joe Browns is an online retailer of men and women’s clothes, shoes, accessories and gifts.

The Details

I hadn’t heard of Joe Browns until recently but on browsing their website I really liked the style of their clothing. I found it really difficult to choose which items I wanted to review. I originally ordered these Beach to Bar Shorts (£29.95) and the Seaside Camisole (£19.95). Unfortunately the shorts were too big but due to the cut of them (they have quite a low waist) and my big bum I had a feeling that the smaller size wouldn’t fit either. Luckily it was very easy to send the shorts back using the free returns label included in the packing and I was able to exchange them for this Beautiful Bouquet Tunic (£29.95) instead.

Joe Browns Seaside Camisole

The Pros

  • There is a large selection of clothes to choose from online. So many that I found it hard to choose!
  • The clothes are very well made – the camisole is fully lined and the jersey of the tunic is a lovely heavy weight so it hangs very well.
  • Sizing seems to be accurate based on the size charts on the website. (I was between sizes with the shorts so ordered the bigger size hoping they would be comfortably loose but they were a bit too big to get away with).
  • I like how on the website it gives details of length measurements but also tells you how tall the model is. The tunic top is long enough to be a dress on me as I’m quite short but I like this as it means I can wear it with leggings.
  • Prices are good and comparable to other high street brands.
  • Delivery was very quick and is a reasonable £4. Next day delivery is available for an extra fee. Joe Browns also offer international shipping.
  • Returns are very easy, and free, using the return shipping label included in the packaging. It is also possible to exchange items without having to pay any additional delivery charges.

The Cons

  • The only problem, as with all online clothes shopping, is that you can’t be sure how something will look on until you get it. Of course with Joe Browns free returns you could always order two sizes if you aren’t sure and then send one back.

The Verdict

I love my new Joe Browns clothes. I think they are very flattering and I’m looking forward to wearing them on my holidays! There’s so much to choose from on the Joe Browns website that whatever your style you’re bound to find something you like.

The nice people at Joe Browns are offering one of you lucky readers a chance to win a £50 voucher to spend on their site. All you need to do is complete the Rafflecopter below.

Open to UK residents over 18 only.
Giveaway closes midnight Monday 16th June

We're going on an adventure

Giveaway: Win tickets to the Baby & Toddler Show at Bluewater [ENDED]

baby & toddler show

Since Toby was born there have been a few Baby & Toddler Shows and I’m always so jealous when I see people tweeting and blogging about them – they always sound like such a great place to visit with so many brands all under one roof. There is another Baby & Toddler show on 25-27 April at Bluewater in Kent, and although I can’t go to that one either the lovely people behind the show have offered me a pair of tickets to giveaway.

There are 150 exhibitors at the show, plus expert advice workshops on a whole host of baby related topics. Kids go free to the show and the whole thing is completely baby friendly so you don’t need to worry if you want to take your little ones along – there is a baby changing area, a feeding area and there is even a baby carrier library where you can leave your buggy in their secure area and try out a baby carrier whilst browsing the show.

To enter this giveaway just complete the Rafflecopter below.

The competition will close at 12am on 14th April 2014.

Tickets will be sent to the winner directly from The Baby & Toddler Show organisers.

In order for tickets to be sent in time for the show the winner must respond within 3 days of receiving the notification email or another winner will be drawn.
