Our Mama Claus Xmas Mega Competition goes live today!

We’re super excited as this is the biggest competition we’ve ever run. One lucky winner will win a huge haul of fabulous prizes from some of our hero parenting brands. We’ll announce the winner on December 21st and the winner will have everything (plus a few extra surprises) delivered on Xmas Eve.

You can enter via Twitter or Instagram – or both. You’ll need to like one of the posts and follow the brands involved with the prize.

So – without further ado -let’s tell you what you could win…

(in no particular order)

Tiffany Rose Naomi nursing dress in black (prize item is size 10-12, this can be changed): at Slick Mummy Tiffany Rose was always our go-to for a ‘going out dress’ during pregnancy or nursing and the Naomi dress is so smart and sexy it will see you through those post preggo curves too…

aden + anais dream blanket in ‘Leader of the Pack’: this brand was our Editor’s Choice award in this year’s MMHA’s, supersoft muslin with ubiquitous designs, the dream blankets will be something your children will adore as babies, rely on as toddlers and treasure as big kids.

JuJuBe travel case in ‘Queen of the Nile’: washable, durable, practical but yet so itty-bitty gorgeous, we love the JuJuBe vibe (it’s so Reece Witherspoon, right?)

Kind Organic sanitary products: because, like – why wouldn’t you want them made from organic cotton…?

Organix Xmas Box: some of their hero products in a ‘delicious but good for you’ selection box.

Kit + Kin: (newborn size) nappies and breast balm from Emma Bunton’s new eco-friendly range. Perfect for tiny bums and sore boobs.

Skin Elixir Frankincense and May Chang Moisturiser: your skin versus Winter? This is your cloak of invincibility.

Yogabellies Baby Wrap in Slate: the UK’s premier perinatal brand’s wrap means comfortable, safe cuddles on the go!

Real Good Tomato Ketchup: if you have kids, you’ll know why we’ve included this one in our prize. Once they discover ketchup and it becomes an essential food group, if you can find a brand like this with minimal salt and calories that tastes the same you’ll inwardly whoop.

Sky Baby travel mattress: genius design to help facilitate taking a baby on a plane which is also simple, lightweight and portable.

MORI Xmas stocking: just adorable – organic cotton and stripey, it will be a talking point at baby’s first Xmas and go on to be a keepsake forever.

Halia Rose Elephant teether in ginger: durable, chewable and super soothing on tiny gums, this guy is a big hitter in the teething world.

Dandydill Way Bubble Bath: splash about in naturally scented hawthorn berry bath bubbles from celebrity make up artist Tanya Rodney’s new range.

Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @SlickMummy for more details on how to enter the comp. Winner will be announced on 21st December and prize will be delivered on Xmas Eve, no cash alternative. UK and Ireland only.

#Win a beautiful aden+anais dream blanket

There are some delightful things happening at aden+anais. Gorgeous new designs replicated across the range of products that they do so well (oversized muslins, blankets, sleeping bags and much more) with prints for hippychicks, little princesses and dapper chaps.

From the pink and grey florals of Meadowlark (which remind me of cherry blossom in the city) to the chic statement of inky blue Indigo, the bold tribal prints of Flip Side and the crisp, cool tones of Kindred – the new collection is both striking and elegant (as you’ve come to expect from this brand if you’re a fan/addict). View the new designs in full here.

It’s something of a running joke that I will always have one of aden+anais’ bamboo muslins knotted on the strap of my handbag. People think this is silly, but actually it is the perfect ‘reach for’ place when there’s an impromptu spill (me or the kids), or need for an emergency hand wipe. What many don’t realise however is that these muslins are washed almost every day and are really put through their paces (the other day for cleaning the car windscreen when I parked under a tree, for example!)

All aden+anais muslins get softer with washing (and having the corners sucked by little ones) – and this is even true if you use supermarket brand washing powder and a high setting or accidentally chuck them in with jeans – but the bamboo ones really do have an exceptional kitten-softness which makes a difference if your little ones have sensitive skin (try one out over a case of chicken pox and you’ll see what I mean…) The designs are so pretty that you could actually wear them as a scarf (one of our team’s daughters stopped using her muslin as a blankie and started wearing it as a shawl as a sign of being ‘grown up’ recently) and I’ve even used one as a tablecloth in the past.

COMPETITION: To celebrate #LoveandMuslin aden+anais have offered us an adorable dream blanket in their unisex Paper Tales design (with cute alphabet letters) to give away to one lucky reader – simply RT our competition tweet and follow @adenandanais to enter. Good luck!

No cash alternative, editor’s decision is final, winner announced on 24th June.

An amazing Pacapod competition: win a weekend break and their super luxe Madison bag

Head over to Pacapod’s site quick smart as you could be in the running to win a luxury weekend for two and one of their chic Madison changing bags.

We can’t get enough of Pacapod’s sleek designs, practical solutions and just general genius when it comes to changing bag know-how. For a busy mum the Pacapod is unbeatable when it comes to speed and simplicity of packing (yup, we’ve all been there with those nappy brain moments of leaving the wipes on the roof of the car) – and dare we mention that little air of smugness that comes from knowing that even though you might have yogurt in your own hair, your changing bag is impeccable.

The Madison bag is of course no exception: from the outside looking like something that Pippa Middleton would tote down Bond St but with a tardis-like interior that neatly stores the Pacapod changer and feeder pods, plus a whole plethora of baby clobber…

#Win a £50 Boots voucher by voting in Oilatum® Daily Top Tip Competition

If you’ve got kids with dry skin conditions, chances are you have Oilatum in your bathroom cabinet. And you’ll know what a godsend it is when flare ups cause tears, sleepless nights – and heaven forbid but it happens – teasing in the playground.

Oilatum has teamed up with real parents and The British Skin Foundation to put together ten top tips for little ones with dry and sensitive skin – we thought they were pretty good so have featured below. Please do drop us a line or share a Tweet if you can think of other helpful ideas that might have been have missed out, or just tell us what works for you and your little one – we love a bit of shared wisdom!

In addition, the kind chaps at Oilatum have also offered us a competition prize of a £50 Boots voucher for the best additional tip, so don’t be shy. (Editor’s decision is final, no cash alternative, gratuitous pics of super cute bubbas in the bath will definitely score you bonus points in our office…)

Editor’s tip: oh gosh this will sound awful but in there is an episode of Peppa Pig where George Pig gets wet, doesn’t take off his wet clothes and subsequently gets a cold. So my boys can often be heard saying ‘get those wet things off so you don’t catch a cold like George Pig’ – but obviously the logic here is that wet clothes aggravate the skin…
