Bath time Bunny 

With the long Easter weekend drawing close to an end there would be nothing more relevant than a product review that fit the vibe.

This comes in form of the hooded bath towel by Minene UK, what makes it Easter ready is the cute little bunny ears on the hooded towel.

First Impression

So we received the lovely bath towel and shipping and delivery time was quick so we didn’t have to wait ages. It arrived neatly and securely packaged. Once opened I was pleasantly surprised to see that it came in a cute dust bag. This was very much needed because we all know baby stuff can take up so much spare so having the dust/storage bag was a perfect extra.This is perfect for travelling as well as going to swimming with little one as you can pop it straight in your baby bag and it doesn’t take up room. I double it up as a bag to put swimming bits inside also hashtag result!

Uses

What I love about this hooded bath towel is that it has a Velcro strap that goes around mummy or daddy’s neck so once you pop baby out the bath it’s convenient to wrap baby round. It ensures that baby is not lingering around in the cold or you having to stretch your arm looking for a towel. Once baby is wrapped you can then unstrap easily and pop on changing mat or bed (wherever you decide to change bubs). 

A lot of hooded towels are plain and boring and I feel like as babies get older alot more entertaining needs to take place. The Minene Uk bunny ear towel brings that element of fun to the after bath time experience. Taliyah loves having a good play about after a bath and even just playing with the bunny ears adds some entertainment as well as her looking super cute.  

As an exclusive breastfeeding mom I find that sometimes bath times at night put baby straight to sleep. As they are super relaxed so this bath towel is perfect for keeping baby close, whilst warmly wrapped and nursing them straight from the tub. 

Taliyah like any other baby loves a good splash about during bath time and it can pretty hectic with water ending up in her hair (which she has a lot of). Now simply just drying with a towel cannot soak up all the water so the hooded element is perfect as it soaks up all the extra water but remains dry so she doesn’t catch cold.Bath toys details: B.Kid Squirt’N Sail Penguins from Kidly

    Baby safety

    Now after carrying a baby for 10 months when they are in this big bad world you want to ensure that they get the best and are always safe. Especially once they are mobile every little thing becomes a hazard. They are so curious and want to explore everything. 

    It’s all fine and dandy putting locks on cupboards, socket covers on, edge protectors; but it defiantly won’t stop your new found walker, crawler, cruiser or roller from going under things. Putting fingers under doors, pulling themselves up to things.

    I decided to invest in a pop up play pen for Taliyah specifically for my moms house as there is alottt of space and alottttt of hazards, plus the floors are wooden so sometimes when Taliyah is trying to cruise she slips and slides.

    Summer Infant Pop up Play Pen

    • Ultra-lightweight and compact the fold up playpen can be set up and taken down in seconds.
    • Perfect for indoor and outdoor use (defo something we will consider taking on holiday). 
    • The floor is water resistant and helps keep baby dry even on damp grass. 
    • I love the fact it has air mesh sides which enable visibility and good breathablity. 
    • Comes complete with a travel bag with shoulder strap which makes it so convenient for on the go travelling. 
    • It is made from folding metal which ensures that it is stable and sturdy, Taliyah enjoys using the frame to pulling herself up and cruising round.
    • I love the fact that it is spacious so she can still crawl about, or have a cheeky nap during the day.

    Precious little one 

    The Summer Infant Pop up play pen is definitely something I would recommend as it gives your child a chance to have independent play, as well as being safe. 

    I find that is better than the usual pop up cots, or travel cots that some people use as those do not touch the floor so bubs doesn’t get full mobility use. It has definitely changed our play time for the better and these days I don’t have to always carry bubs to pee with me.
