A couple of months ago I gave you an advanced look at the travel system we had got for Essie: the Cosatto Woop in the gorgeous Fjord pattern, which had very kindly been sent to us for review by the fab team at Cosatto HQ, along with the matching Port car seat. Now that Essie is here and we have been using the travel system for a few weeks now in the "newborn" mode, I thought it was about time to let you know what we think of it so far!

I absolutely love reading birth stories as every experience is so unique, and after sharing my own two very different birth experiences [emergency c-section and natural VBAC] I decided to ask other mums and dads to share their beautiful birth stories with me, too. If you’d like to share your birth story, send me an email or get in touch via Twitter or Facebook.

Back in autumn I received a beautiful unique watch to review from JORD, who create gorgeous wooden timepieces for people who value sustainability, efficiency, and experiential living. Ian loves watches and was a little envious of mine, so when JORD offered to send a piece from their range of men's watches for him I just had to say yes!

Pregnant with my first baby, I envisioned an organised home with a play area for him, full of brightly coloured, wooden toys that would last for years to come and be passed down through to his siblings. Fast forward five years and two more children later, my home has become full of plastic. Noisy plastic toys. Which for the most part I'm not that adverse to. But what has happened is we've amassed so many toys, given by well-meaning relatives, that the house is overrun and the boys are overwhelmed by choice. And I am overwhelmed with picking them up everyday.
