The Apprentice Baby grow – baby glow

So did you see The Apprentice last night? I gotta say i watch every series and i’m sure they get dafter ever year! Although they are well entertaining, personally i think Melissa’s time was up and it was a bit of a no brainer for Lord Sugar, but she defo gave us some entertaining times when she was there, especially with all thosae crazy words she used!

So the programme showcased a new baby grow that changed colour when your babies temperature rose beyond a certain point, i’ve done a bit of searching and the product is called bay grow and is available for purchase here,

o here is their blurb from their website:

WHY BABYGLOW? TEMPERATURES AND BABIES

The human average body temperature varies from 36.5 to 37.5. It is regulated by a well balanced and intelligent system that our bodies operate continuously.

Babies however cannot regulate their body temperature independently until after they are about 24 months old.

This causes them to frequently develop a fever, which means that their body temperature rises. These fevers are often due to viral infections that will come and go again, but occasionally a fever can be a sign of a more serious illness.

Why and how does the body develop a fever?

When the body detects infection or something it cannot identify, such as a virus, it produces a reaction affecting the heat-regulating centre of the brain called the hypothalamus. Several reactions in the body then purposely increase the body temperature to higher levels in an attempt to kill the infection. This is why in the case of illness the body raises its temperature. As fever can also become dangerous itself, the general consensus in the medical world is to attempt to lower the temperature back to normal levels.

BABYGLOW products are designed to start changing colour when the temperature of the body rises over 37°C and they are fully functional (white in area’s that touch the baby) when the temperature reaches 38.5°C, which is where fever can become dangerous to the child.

This unique functionality will help parents to see signs of fever or overheating immediately, even before the child becomes noticeably ill.

For further details about babies and temperature we recommend reading the relevant sections on www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk for authoritative informa

Anyone going to the Baby Show @ Earls court later this month?

Mama Feelsgood aren’t exhibiting there this year but a lot of companies we like and know are and i was thinking i might pop up with baby Erin and see what’s occuring.

When i say pop up it isn’t quite that simple as we are based in Bristol so would have to catch the train as i don’t do motorways ( i do have a good reason which a bit too gross to share) although i haven’t looked into the cost of a train ticket , i won;t expect it to be cheap but i think i might be shocked at the inflated price.

Any hooo we could meet for a cuppa tea & a bun 🙂

So i was wondering if any of you guys were thinking of going? Here’s the info about it:

Grab a bargain – funky maternity shirts available

It’s been a crazy time since we started Mama Feelsgood , starting a business like this from scratch has been a real experience and i have learnt a lot over the couple of years we have been trading. One of which has been you never really know how somethings gonna go until you get out there and try it, and this goes for what you guys want from nursing & maternity clothes.

So we have made the decision to stop manufacturing our maternity Tees , this has been a really hard decision because honestly our maternity tees are SO lush, and like everything we make we have never gone for the cheap option, we’ve  used really thick lovely cotton which won;t go see through when you pull it over your humungous baby bump, they are longer in length and keep your covered even when you are at your biggest, plus they have bloomin funky prints, not these crappy “baby on board” slogans (sorry my personal opinion there, i can’t stand them!).

But our support for our breastfeeding range has been phenomenal , so it’s this we are putting our focus into now solely, as a small independent retail company we have to compete with the bigger brands and this on our tinnnyyy budget is just not possible so we are hoping that our quality product will out shine them . Seriously we use really lovely fabrics that other companies wouldn’t use because they are expensive to manufacture and they go for the cheaper option (this is a massive issue i have, you get a item of clothing and it;s so thin you can see through it or it wouldn’t keep a knat warm!) .

We don’t buy our shirts already made from other companies and just change the tag ( some companies do this) everything has been made by us , to our specifications and we use quality goods and quality manufacturers.

SO rant over, i’m just a bit gutted we have to put our maternity clothes on hold for now, but when we get a bigger company we will bring them back so no worries they are just on a brief holiday and in the words of Arnie”  i”ll be back! “

All our maternity shirts are available to buy from our Ebay Clearance store

Mamascarf now in stock , black, cream & navy blue nursing scarf

Mamascarf - breastfeeding scarf

Whoop whoop we are pleased to say have got back in stock the fabulous Mamascarf breastfeeding scarves in all the three colours available, Navy Blue, Cream and black .

SO how does this nursing scarf work i hear you ask?

Using your Mamascarf breastfeeding cover is easy; it’s a really simple but effective triangular design;

  1. Place the scarf around your neck with the centre point at your tummy and the pocket on the inside.
  2. Tie the two ends of the scarf at the back of your neck. The larger you require it to be, the further to the end you need to tie it.  Tie a double knot.
  3. Once your scarf is tied, loop your arm through the opening. Use your right arm to feed on the right or your left arm to feed on the left side.
  4. Once the Mamascarf nursing cover is in place you can adjust your breastfeeding clothing as required, now you can slip your baby  into the opening, and feed as normal ensuring you are holding your baby at all times (PLEASE NOTE – Mamascarf is not designed for carrying your baby).

Anything which makes your life that bit easier when you are a mum must be cool 🙂
