When do I get my child’s eyes tested?

Hopefully you don’t need to think about your new babies eyes (except for gazing into them for the hours at a time, obviously) – all babies have a quick eye screen at birth (no, I didn’t know it had happened either), and then the Health Visitor will do another at their 6wk check.

Spotted – Gorgeous Girl’s Horse T-Shirt Under £4 from M&S!

If you’ve got a pony-mad girl, this find I just spotted over in the M&S sale just might make her smile a bit… I just love it!

We *LOVE* The Bespoke Childrenswear from Huxter. A lot.

Any parent will tell you that as soon as their adorable little willing babies become independently-moving toddlers, they develop opinions to match that independence. And it’s an opinion which they cast wildly over everything – peas vs beans, blue cup vs yellow cup, going out vs staying in… Sometimes, finding clothing that fits that opinion (and therefore avoids the need for wrestling it on through the anticipated...

Pretty in pink: the most stylish colour for girls this winter

When you think of a winter wardrobe, you probably see deep reds, rich greens and warm browns – the type of seasonal colours that usually crop up in shops when the temperatures drop and Christmas approaches.
