Smafolk Nursing Pillow

7 Jun

Hot Hot Hot! Danish Smafolk’s brand new nursing pillows fall to the ‘Need’ category for expectant mums. There are various colours available and since we found it exceptionally difficult to choose a colour from all the lush alternatives we went for the multicoloured apples at Hei Moose. Mr Moose has also confirmed that these are c-o-o-l.

Available either with a pillow and cover (the ones we have at Hei Moose) or just a cover (you’ll need to google them) these pillows provide support to find a good position for breastfeeding. When breastfeeding MiniMoose ages ago I also found myself using my nursing pillow back then for sleeping, as a pillow for travelling in a car, MiniMoose’s pillow support for the floor etc etc.

These pillows aren’t the cheapest at the market – RRP at around £59.90 but they are the funkiest breastfeeding pillows I’ve seen for a while!

Burp! Boutique

19 Mar

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the Burp! Boutique. Burp! Boutique shares the same idea with Hei Moose of offering cool colourful clothes other than pink and blue and oh boy do they have some cool gear for babies and kids up to 3-year-olds.

Rolling Stones Babygrow £18

But Burp! Boutique isn’t just cool clothes with funky prints, there is also a funky selection of toys, books, prints!

Please Stop Crying Dummy Holder £10

Like Hei Moose, Burp Boutique was founded in 2011 and its cool clothes and toy collections have been seen in Vogue, Elite Magazine and The I Paper. I’m constantly drooling over their Swedish Moccis collection, as seen in my earlier post in February.

In addition to the Moccis, my favourties for MiniMoose are:

Beep Beep Travel Blanket £26

Green Big Star Hoodie £25 by Boys&Girls

Out to Play £23 by Boys&Girls

Sleepytime Tales £15

La La Land Poster £35

Stripes Creature £12

And tomorrow on Tuesday Burp! Boutique is having 20% of everything. Not to be missed! Visit Burp! Boutique on www.burpboutique.com and quote LOVELYSPRING at the check out to receive 20% of your order!

20% of everything on 20th March!

Nordic Lush Labels: Boob Maternity

22 Feb

Swedish Boob Maternity clothing is one of the premium Nordic Maternity wear makers and famous for fabulous designs, quality and practicality. And that’s no wonder, these clothes are absolutely stunning! The founder, Mia Seipel, set the brand up in 1999 after seeing her sister nurse a baby on a cold windy day in Stockholm. She decided that mothers should have stylish and funky yet practical and warm clothes.

The Boob maternity range includes clothes to wear with the bump and for nursing, there are also some baby clothes in their selection. As a bonus, the clothes are made of organic cotton.

I had their nursing hood for breastfeeding and I absolutely loved it, so cool and easy to use, yet so warm with the fleece inside. I also had their nursing t-shirts.

Boob Nursing Hood £62.99

Before and After Top £56.99

Oh and have look at this wardrobe saver, Boob Maternity Magic Tube, that is pure magic! The tube can be worn as a dress, top, skirt or belly tube!

Boob Maternity Magic Tube £49.99

In the UK one of the best Boob ranges is at Everydaymaternity

Kappahl, Lindex and H&M

21 Feb

The usual trio on the Nordic High Street is Kappahl, Lindex and H&M. They are all big chains that offer affordable, stylish clothing for women, men, children and babies. H&M is obviously well known in the UK, but not many know about Lindex or Kappahl. Lindex opened their EU wide online store over a year ago and hence deliver to the UK. Kappahl, however, is currently only based within Nordic Countries. What is similar to all the three of them is that they make lovely funky children’s wear that I tend to stock up on my visits to Finland. I’ve listed some of my favourites below.

Kappahl:

€7.95

€7.95

€19.95

€9.95

Lindex:

One similar brand to Lindex and Kappahl is Danish Name It, that is also available on Hei Moose!
