Last week I received a package of goodies from a fab little handmade business called Cornish Daisy.
I’m a fan of unique hand-made items, and these from Cornish Daisy are no exception. We were sent a blanket (perfect size for a cot/cot bed) two dribble bibs and a pod bib.
The blanket we were sent is super soft and snuggly. I was so pleased to be sent this lovely bright red one as it matches the colour scheme for Emma’s room. At the moment we are using it in the car as we often leave in the morning when it is quite cold so I can tuck her in all warm and snuggly. Emma likes to snooze in the car too so perfect for keeping her warm while she is still.
It is lovely and super soft against her skin and will be a well loved blanket. These lovely fleece blanket prices start at £12.99 and there are lots of great designs available and they can even be personalised.
The two dribble bibs we were sent were also super soft. Emma is busy growing some new teeth and is very dribbly again at the moment. It is nice to have these brightly coloured bibs – I’m a fan of bright colours on children. The Cornish Daisy bibs are super absorbent and the shape is actually a little different to some of the other more well known ones on the market so they covered Emma really well, quite high up to catch chin dribbles but not so high up as to be uncomfortable. With some other brands now that Emma is a little older she has a habit of twisting the bib round so it ends up being on back to front. The fit of the Cornish Baby bibs doesn’t allow her to do this, ensuring it stays put where it should be! Prices for these bibs stats at £5.99.
My fave item that we were sent was the fabulous pod bib, and this is a bit of a show stopper for me. We have some larger towelling type bibs that we have used
with Emma for eating her meals with, but they are pretty grubby now so I don’t use them out of the house and they haven’t lasted that long really. The pod bibs are brilliant and I only wish I had discovered them sooner! They are made from a baby friendly laminated cotton so are wipe clean and are an absolute game changer for mealtimes now.
They are priced at £9.99 each which might seem pricey but you will only need 2/3 of them, where as I have probably spent a similar amount on larger bibs from mothercare etc that haven’t lasted and haven’t done the job. I have since bought another of these bibs to keep in the change bag for meal times out and about.
The bibs has a wider coverage than normal for shoulders and has three popper settings on the neck. the bib pops up to create a little pocket to catch any dropped food etc and this then unpops to easily dispose of the food. It is a genius design and this is the star item from Cornish Daisy for me.
The stock image here shows the pod element of the bib better – the pocket pops up and unpops once finished with. It also allows the bib to be folded into itself when packed away which is great for leaving in the changing bag. They are wipe clean too which is great!
