I didn’t really do much baby wearing with Little I when she was a baby. I had a BabyBjorn carrier that was used for travelling on trains, planes etc , to make life easier, but that was about it. I am much more keen to baby wear this time round. Baby wearing seems to have shaken off its slightly ‘hippy’ image and is appealing to modern mamas all over the world.
Being pregnant in the summer is a bit of a new experience for me. When I was pregnant with Little I it was from the beginning of September through to April so I didn’t have to contend with too much hot weather.
This time of the year is notorious for special occasions – weddings, christenings, baby showers, garden parties, races. So, I thought it would be fun to pull together and share some of our maternity occasion wear picks, to see you through a summer of celebrating.

What on earth is a baby sprinkle I hear you ask? Well, when it comes to pregnancy and birth, our friends over the pond in the good old US of A have some great ideas. Historically hey seem to have celebrated a pregnant woman a bit more than we have here in the UK and I, for one, am glad that we’re starting to adopt some of their (sometimes over the top) practices over here! One of these said celebrations is the baby shower.
Little I has developed a rather interesting, and dangerous, habit recently. She thinks trying to get out of her car seat straps while we’re driving is a great game. Uhoh. Luckily for us we were recently contacted by Cosatto and asked if we wanted to try out one of their car seats, which just happened to have their 5 point ‘anti escape’ system in place.
