Earlier this year we were delighted to welcome The Nappy Society to the Beyond the Stork family. This week sees the arrival of a new product from The Nappy Society - Original and Compact inserts in a beautiful, neutral Sand colour. We thought this would be a good opportunity to have a chat with Gemma from The Nappy Society and find out a bit about her and the brand.
We are delighted to announce that Fornessi baby wraps have landed at Beyond the Stork! Fornessi makes baby wearing practical, safe, easy and enjoyable. The wraps support the transition from womb to the world and are perfect for skin-to-skin time. Each one is made in the UK from 100% modal which is made from beech trees and processed in an environmentally sound way, with by products being reused. The fabric is biodegradable, super strong, while still being silky soft. The handy cotton bag (which slips neatly into a changing bag) is made from unbleached cotton, and shipping packaging is biodegradable.
It seems like a while since we’ve managed to venture further than a ½ mile radius of the house and to be honest I think we were all going a little stir crazy…so when some friends mentioned they were going on a little adventure to North London and would we like to join them we jumped at the chance…well sort of, once I’d had my grumpy ‘I’m not driving all the way across London’ moment and we’d plotted a suitable route using public transport…then we all jumped at the chance! It’s actually really easy to get to Hampstead from South East London, the Overground…when working…is quick and easy, and on a Sunday mostly empty.
For a long time we had wanted to take B to see the real life Thomas the Tank Engine, we knew he would be so excited. What child doesn’t love Thomas the Tank Engine and friends? One Sunday we headed down to the Kent and East Sussex Railway in Tenterden to the Day Out with Thomas Experience.
A few weeks ago the weather was looking fine and in an effort to have a change of scenery from the usual parks of South East London, we ventured, double buggy and all, up in to town. The first destination was The Soho Hotel, off Dean Street.
