This was the second one I bought, as I soon discovered I needed a larger capacity, and more pockets (to stop me losing dummies or my purse in the abyss). This one is so much easier to find everything in, and I can fit everything I need in it for 24 hours out of the house.Read More »
So a disclaimer to start with. When I was looking to buy this pram I already owned a pram. I’d read loads of reviews and bought a Baby Sportiv travel system, which according to customer feedback was compact when folded.

It’s just on these occasions I haven’t been wearing makeup… way to make a new mother feel good about herself(!).
So I’ve had to figure out a daily make up routine I can do quickly (babies don’t tend to give you the luxury of more than 3 minutes in front of a mirror), and one that isn’t too expensive to maintain (mat leave doesn’t pay much).Read More »
