Our pick of… Pink for Boys

Whether you stand in solidarity with Adele on the gender neutrality or just want to dip a toe into the whole melange (maybe a lavender-painted one?) we have a few pink picks that are 100% masculine. And super cute.

Scamp & Dude’s pink rabbit tee is emblazoned with a neon Super Bunny, to warn off any baddies. He’s bad, he’s pink and he doesn’t care that he’s just wearing pants.

 

 

Swaddle a tiny boy-boo in a pink tiger, from the new aden+anais summer collection of adorable, breathable, do-it-all swaddles. And say Grr to Granny.

 

 

Hunter’s Kids’ backpacks are just as rugged as their welly boots, so the pink colourway knows no gender bounds. Also, check out the new ‘Panther Pink’ shade they have added to the boot range. Much more boy-friendly than their previous ‘Lipstick Pink’.

 

 

Tapir and Friends Pink Crocodile beaker is a ferociously pink way to serve a drink (maybe sugar-free Ribena or Charlie and Lola style pink milk?)

 

 

This Fisherman style sun hat looks super cool in bubblegum pink and keeps the rays off just as well as any other colour. Wide brim and chinstrap means it won’t fall off whilst BMXing…  (maybe on this BMX Star bike…?)

aden+anais launches beautiful Disney collaboration range

We were thrilled to see the aden+anais Disney collection in full yesterday at Bumpkin Chelsea, before if went into the dedicated pop-up in Harrods.

Really tastefully done, with muted colours and very clever designs mean that the range of muslins, dream blankets, burp cloths etc don’t look bright or brash (as Disney can do sometimes) but instead pick out lovely details that evoke memories of our own childhood.

The collaboration includes: Winnie the Pooh, Bambi and Jungle Book and is available to buy online now.

How to breastfeed in style in Primark (or anywhere else for that matter)

If you need to nurse on the move and are worried a burly security guard might take offence, we recommend the following:

This lovely loose, flowing drape cardigan in tan-flattering lemongrass is on sale from Isabella Oliver and great as an impromptu shawl for pulling over your boobs and snuggling baby. Looks great for years afterwards too (Editor wore one to a wedding recently).

Or how lovely are the ditzy dots of Palm and Ponds’ breastfeeding cover from Daisy Baby Shop?

Top up your energy levels on the go with Frieda’s Feeding Food Bar –  packed full of good milk producing ingredients such as fennel, oats and flaxseed, plus Omega 3s and protein.

And pop some nipple balm into your handbag – we’re loving The Nerdy Farmwife’s natural, fragrant and easy to make at home ones…

Editor’s tip:  I have always loved a good old fashioned oversized muslin for cover ups and dribble wiping (Aden + Anais bamboo ones are great) and I’ve normally got one tied ’round the strap of my handbag – even when I’m out with the older kids…
