• Car seat safety first, with Maxi-Cosi

    July 11, 2016

    Did you know 71% of children’s car seats are fitted incorrectly*, or are completely incompatible to the car or the child? But that there’s an easy way to get your car seat safety and set-up checked, completely free? We’ve been working with Maxi-Cosi and last week went on a mini road trip across south London with…

  • Packing for two…plus two

    June 23, 2015

       Oh, the places you’ll go. But first there’s packing. When you have two children it’s a process that takes so long it starts before you’ve actually booked the holiday.  Whereas packing for just two is purely done on fun (how many bikinis can I justify taking? Oh, here’s one more. Do I need another…
