You would think that as a parent of children that suffer with asthma and other allergies I might have previously shown some concern with the air they breathe, but it has never really been something that I thought about affecting them. I wasn’t surprised to find out that I wasn’t alone, we seem to spend so much time thinking about what food and drink we put inside ourselves but not about the air we breathe.

I arrived home last week to find the biggest box I had ever seen in my hallway… However it wasn’t the box which was the surprise, it was the fantastic product inside!

Did you know that UK law requires that all children must use the correct child car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm in height (whichever comes first)? Now there is absolutely no excuse not to use a seat with mifold – the grab-and-go booster seat! mifold – the grab-and-go booster seat is actually 10x smaller than a regular booster seat and it is so compact making it perfect for using in friends cars or travelling.
If there is one thing I cannot stand it is being cold so I always appreciate a really nice winter jacket. We have all recently been testing out a lovely new winter jacket each from Trespass. Trespass have a huge selection of jackets for men, women and children. It took me ages to decide which ones to get for each of us as there is so much choice. We wanted warm and waterproof and this is what we got…
