What Cora Wore // aden + anais

The beach is our summer happy place.  It is where we go when we don't know what else to do, where we go on playdates with friends, where we walk when we need to get out energy and most importantly where we eat ice cream.  It has felt like we haven't spent as much time there this year with holidays, festivals and moving house changing our usual August plans.  

I am not ready to pack away our beach gear yet and I am hoping we get some September sunshine so that the smaller two and I can enjoy the deserted sands whilst the bigger two are at school.  Cora was sent some goodies from aden+ anais and the swaddle blankets have become a summer staple.

This one is part of a pack of three and I always have one in my changing bag for impromptu trips out.  We use it as a summer blanket, to sit on and most often as a little towel to cover shoulders and dry sandy toes.  I fold it in half and it wraps perfectly around Cora's shoulders and she prances around happily in it.

The delicate pinks and white are certainly not what I would have bought before she was born, but we love light colours on the hot days and the little gold details make them look so pretty.

Cora was sent a little nappy cover too in white and gold with sweet little ruffles on the bum.  I think this would look much better over a disposable nappy as it looks much prettier and is perfect under summer dresses or as beach wear on its own.  It didn't sit quite right over her cloth nappy as it is quite big already.

 Our summer days seem to be numbered now and the sunshine is broken up with bouts of rain and colder winds, but we are holding out hope that there are more beach days to come over the next month.

And despite Cora now being 14 months (how did that happen?) we certainly won't be packing our aden + anais swaddle blankets away yet.

My Top Five Products for a Feeding Mum

I have been the mum that would try breastfeeding with no pressure. I have been the mum hiding in a toilet, worried about breastfeeding in public.  I have been the mum that weaned onto bottles.  I have been the mum who knew she would breastfeed before her baby was even born.  I have been the mum proudly breastfeeding.  I have been the mum who breastfed a toddler.  I have been the mum that cup fed.  I have been the mum that bottlefeeds.  I have been the mum that does her very best for her babies, and makes sure they are fed, happy and growing.

I have breastfed, cup fed and bottle fed, and whilst there are some products brilliantly designed for a certain way of feeding, there are also a lot of products that are just fantastic for those mums that regularly feed their children.  Here are my top 5

-Muslins.

Muslins are genius things, so simple, so underated until you have a baby to feed, and then you realise their worth.  I used them as a light cover when I felt nervous feeding in public, I have used them as a burping cloth, and as a makeshift bib for a baby with reflux.  However I feed my baby, I make sure I have a muslin close at hand.
