The Changing Bag Essentials: the large muslin cloth

A great find which I will buying for any mum-to-be I know. I picked one of these up from Jojo Maman Bebe a few weeks ago and now couldn’t be without it.

This particular one is great as the colourful pattern means it can double as a playmat too. Abigail has enjoyed spending some of her tummy time on it!

Muslin cloths are a must-have anyway but this large one has worked as a blanket, breast-feeding apron, cloth, sun-shade and baby comforter. It also folds up teeny tiny so is easy to carry around. Sorted.

Mummies day out at Wakehurst Place

Recently, Abigail and I paid a visit to Wakehurst Place in West Sussex with some of our friends. We turned up on mass, and our buggy brigade (!) spent the day enjoying the grounds, walking and picnicking. The weather was definitely on our side and was perfect for taking our little ones out for the day.

Wakehurst Place is the country estate of Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens in London. It boasts beautiful landscapes including tree collections, lakes, woodland, a country house, gardens and the Millennium Seed Bank project.

We found it to be ideal for a child-friendly day out with plenty of space to roam, family-friendly facilities, lovely cafes and picnic areas.  

I loved the formal gardens with all the gorgeous flowers in bloom and tried to show them to Abigail, although she didn't look too impressed...

After buying the year’s membership at £24 (the cost of two visits), I think it will become a regular on our list of day trips!
