Mother and Baby Awards Tester

The girls I was lucky enough to be chosen as a Mother & Baby magazine awards tester back in the summer. I was sworn to secrecy at the time so forgive me!

It was amazing each day to get parcels of goodies to try and was lucky enough to get to keep most of the items so want to say a massive thank you!!
Anyway as the awards have been announced & given out I thought I would share with you the ones I absolutely loved and it seems I wasn’t the only one!

This was one of 3 pumps I got to test and I am so so glad it won gold! The other two had so many gadgets and gizmos and whilst this isn’t the funkiest looking pump around it was so simple to use & more importantly put back together after washing!!

These wipes were fantastic!! They smell amazing and have the perfect consistency. Very gentle on dinky bums! My husband who never notices things like this even commented how good they were and they never dried out thanks to their little plastic sticker thingy. I wish they stocked them locally as I’d exclusively buy them but sadly my little town doesn’t :(((

When these boxes turned up I was so so excited! They are in the Tiffany colour with a big white ribbon so through my sleep deprived state I got a tad overexcited. However when I opened it and saw how cute the little personalised trainers are I melted!!! A super present for anyone expecting and definitely has the wow factor!!

Now, I didn’t get to test this but I had to do a big yay for

My wonderful sister got our girls a Ewan each and they both have slept with our girls every night since they were born. My husband and I both like the Ewan tune playing as we drift off to sleep. He is just the coolest sheep ever!!!

I got to test other products which I loved but sadly didn’t win awards. The two I would definitely recommend were the Love to Dream Swaddle Up


These helped our girls sleep in the early days when they really startled when sleeping. Their arms go above their head in the bag not only keeping them warm but as they were enclosed reduced startling induced wake ups – bonus!!
I also rated the Angel Care bath support
We bought a baby bath. Biggest mistake ever with twins! Not only is it a faff to fill by the time baby 2 is ready it’s freezing (yes the girls share a bath. We are on a water meter and my sister and I always shared so I don’t see how it’s any different!!)
I hated bathing Charlie – it massively stressed me out – slippery babies tend to do this!!. Anyhow, This allows the baby to lie in the water and happily kick their little legs around. The holes in the seat allow water to drain off them too so they aren’t sat in a puddle of cold water.
I would add though that now the girls can roll over I am rather reluctant to use it as they try to roll out the seat but very worthwhile for early bathing – definitely recommend more than a baby bath!
So there you have it. I’d just like up add I have not been asked to review these products and they are purely my views based on my two girls. Just a mom trying to help other moms!!
