Back when I was a kid I can remember getting all kinds of random things in my stocking like rubbers and little eye shadows. Ooh not forgetting an orange and chocolate coins - they're a stocking essential, right? My little one will be almost 8 months at Christmas so I'd thought I'd put together a little list of stocking fillers for babies. Most of the products are under £5!

I don't mean to alarm you or anything but Christmas is 4 WEEKS TODAY! Eeek. That means it's Christmas Gift Guide time. Woo. Baby's first Christmas is so special so I decided to start with gifts for Babies. I've found B the hardest to buy presents for so if you're also finding it a tad difficult I hope you manage to find a little inspiration...

To the lady in Matalan,
It's not often that I get annoyed by an opinion that differs to mine, I'm usually pretty open and can respect that someone else thinks differently to me but today that wasn't the case. Whilst standing in line, I overheard you and your friend discussing the ever so controversial topic of breastfeeding v bottle feeding and that's when I heard you say "Breastfeeding is the easy option".

When I was kid, everything in our stocking was from Father Christmas and all the presents under the tree were from family. When I went back to school in January, I can remember some children would excitedly shout that Father Christmas bought them a new bike, or the latest new craze. One thing I'll never forget is the feeling of wondering why Father Christmas didn't bring me something as expensive as a bike, especially when I'd been good! Even more harrowing was the face of the children who's families didn't have a lot of money so subsequently they had very little from the big man. I know at the moment B is still small so I don't have to worry about any of this happening just yet. But, it did get me thinking; should all presents come from Father Christmas?

As you've probably guessed already, I love Christmas. It's my favourite time of year and I want to make it special, together, as a family. As this year is B's first Christmas, we'll be starting new traditions that we aim to continue every year. I'm hoping to instil my excitement over Christmas onto B from a young age, ha! I absolutely love the idea of letters from Santa, and although B doesn't understand, I just had to get one for his first Christmas. Magic Santa Letter create high quality letters that without a doubt will bring the magic of Christmas into your home..

I spend a lot of my time breastfeeding so it's natural to want something that makes it a little comfier for both baby & I. If I'm honest, I used to think nursing pillows were just another pointless product that consumers wanted you to buy but I couldn't be more wrong. It only took 6 months but after trying a few different brands, I've finally found my favourite - the HushCush Nursing Pillow, it's an absolute dream when nursing..

Now that Halloween is behind us, I'm all over the festive feels and what better way to begin Christmas posts than with a little festive bucket list? I'm so excited this year, I'm an absolute fanatic anyway but this year is my little ones very first Christmas and I cannot wait. I'm one of those people that start shopping in June, and act like a child as soon as I see anything remotely festive in the shops. Christmas is all about family so there are a few things I'd like us to do together this year, and some of these I hope will become our family traditions for years to come..
