4 weeks ago I gave birth to my second beautiful baby boy, Lucas, and our family was completed.
Normally we hear about first time parents being super organised, researching everything! and generally over purchasing for their new baby. However, this was not the case with me and my pregnancy with Lucas…. We were 19 when we had our first son Joshua and we relied on the knowledge passed to us by our families. This meant that we purchased the bare minimum and did very little research of our own, simply taking the opinions of those around us and not looking any further. Luckily, the one thing I didn’t just buy off the internet without a second thought was my pushchair. Through word of mouth I found Groovystyle and found my perfect pushchair within my budget thanks the the extensive knowledge of one of my now colleagues. Fast forward 6 years and I have been part of the Groovystyle team for almost 5 years and have loved every moment of it.
Although I know our range of products inside and out I still did my own research to make sure they were the right thing for us and our baby. In the 4 weeks I have been a new Mum the two products that have really stood out to be are the Snuzpouch and our reusable Cheeky Wipes.
Having a winter baby meant I was really worried about how I would keep him warm during those cold nights. Everyone knows an empty cot is a safe cot but how do you keep a baby warm when you can’t rug them up in blankets? Since swaddling is now discouraged by Midwives, the Snuzpouch was the perfect solution for us. Not only do I have the reassurance that Lucas is cosy in his 2.5 tog pouch but the unique zippered front makes it super easy to change him during the night. In fact I love the Snuzpouch so much I’ve just picked up a second one AND bought one as a gift.
*The Snuzpouch comes in two sizes, 1 and 2.5 tog and 6 funky colours.
If you haven’t looked into Cheeky reusable wet wipes then you definitely should do! I was a little sceptical at first but they’ve been a complete game changer for us. One box houses the clean wipes with a little lavender oil and the second box comes complete with a mesh bag insert for washing the dirty wipes and is scented with Tea tree. Every morning I chuck the mesh bag into the washing machine and it’s as easy as that! The Cheeky Wipes starter kit does also come with a wet/dry bag for on the go but I haven’t been brave enough to do this yet and have just stuck to good old Water Wipes. Not only are the Cheeky Wipes much better for the environment but they mean we will save a fortune in the long run. I can see them being great for when he starts weaning too!
