Do you live in or around the Brighton area? Are you pregnant or have you recently given birth? If so, then do you have your ticket to the Brighton Bump & Baby Show? If not, here’s why you should get one, and if you do then I’ll see you there.
Toby and Martha are only 21 months apart, so although they are at very different developmental stages there are some things that they are both figuring out. I’m a huge believer in learning through play and especially when it’s a case of the children playing together to develop their social skills alongside educational benefits.

I also didn’t want them look like miniature teenagers, I want to embrace their baby and toddlerhood! Now, as the proud owner of a baby and toddler shop, I sell some absolutely gorgeous clothing for the mini humans in mine and your life, so I simply have to share them with you.
