Find great competitions & nursing top giveaways on our facebook page

Right now we are making the final move to our new office (well in fact we have 2 offices but that is a long story) and we are finding lots of nursing shirts that some how have found themselves down the back of the shelves ! So they are a bit dusty or there are a few that have random marks on them from manufacturing and we cannot sell; so the nice people that we are we are giving them away to ladies who need them far more than us.

The best way we have found to do this is via our facebook fan page because it’s quick and it seems it’s a fair way of doing it as everyone gets a shot.Of course if you are not a member of facebook you can always leave your name under this message to be entered but the easiest way is via facebook.

We also run competitions and give heads up on new or upcoming stock on our facebook page too, and also it’s a great place to get your advice on what you want to see on our website, and the kinda breastfeeding clothes you want to see made. So come on over, say hi, and as BT say it’s good to talk ….ok type maybe !

Looking for a great nursery in Bristol ? Saplings is well recommended

It’s SO hard trying to make a choice about which nursery to choose if you or when you need one; i think for such important issues such as this personal recommendations are really important along with getting down to the nursery itself and checking them out. I can personally recommend Southmead Saplings nursery; it’s part of the Southmead hospital nursery and is open to employees of the North Bristol Trust and also private customers too.

As you go into Southmead hospital from the entrance where A & E use to be it’s on the right hand side in the big nurses block, it has parking right out side which is essential really so there are no issues of parking and having to cart your children and their bags miles. The staff are so friendly, when i worked in the Biochemistry lab Amelia my 1st daughter was there for 3 1/2 years (not in one stint ha ha i did pick her up in between!) , she did 2 days per week and she loved it, and i am not joking or sugar coating it when i say that. I regard the ladies there who looked after her for that time friends, they have always looked after my children very well and i totally trust them 100%.

They are open 5 days per week, 8am – 6pm (although if you need a 7am start they can do this but you have to pay the extra hour)

Their age range is 3 months to 5 years

Employees to NBT and also non-employees can have places. They have different day rates depending upon NBT employee or not.

Ms Helen Whitehead is manager.

Details to get in touch are as follows:

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:

Bambino Goodies – fabulous site for babies, kids & parents

There’s not lots of site that keep coming up with consistent gems in regard to new products available for families but i gotta say Bambino Goodies  is one of them.

Every time i check their blog out i always find things that i’d love to own (ok so some of the products are a little on the pricey side, for example i was looking for some funky wallpaper for my new babies room and found this on Bambino Goodies , expensive as they charge by the Sq Metre but when you think of how long it’s gonna be on the wall, in my case a longtime because i hate decorating then it kinda becomes more affordable).

Bambino Goodies covers a whole range of products from childrens clothing ,

Furniture and Decor , Mama’s gear (of which we are very lucky here at Mama Feelsgood to say we have been featured 🙂 )

Seriously go check their site out       there are hundreds of little gems and ideas you’ll want to know.

Juno featuring Jennifer Garner on SKY movies saturday night

I have never seen this film before and my friends tell me i am missing out, so it’s on SKY movies tonight. I didn;t even realise Jennifer Garner (AKA  Mrs Affleck) is in it (i always thought she has really nice dimples and is well under rated as an actress).

So i’m going to sky plus it as it’s my friend Louise’s birthday tonight and we are going out. Just looked up the blurb about Juno on Wikipedia and this is what it had to say

Juno is a 2007 CanadianAmerican comedy-drama film directed by Jason Reitman and written by Diablo Cody. Ellen Page stars as the title character, an independent-minded teenager confronting an unplanned pregnancy and the subsequent events that put pressures of adult life onto her. Michael Cera, Olivia Thirlby, J.K. Simmons, Allison Janney, Jennifer Garner, and Jason Bateman also star. Filming spanned from early February to March 2007 in Vancouver, British Columbia. The film premiered on September 8 at the 2007 Toronto International Film Festival, receiving a standing ovation.

The film won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay and earned three other Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Page. The film’s soundtrack, featuring several songs performed by Kimya Dawson in various guises, was the first number one soundtrack since Dreamgirls and 20th Century Fox’s first number one soundtrack since Titanic. Juno earned back its initial budget of $6.5 million in twenty days; during the first nineteen of which the film was in limited release.[1] The film has gone on to earn more than 35 times that amount, becoming the highest grossing movie in distributor Fox Searchlight Pictures‘s history.

Juno received numerous positive reviews from critics, many of whom placed the film on their top ten lists for the year. The film has also received both criticism and praise from members of both the pro-life and pro-choice communities regarding its confrontation of abortion.”

Pregnant Tess Daly leaves BBC1 Strictly Come Dancing


Singer Alesha Dixon is reportedly being tipped to stand in for Tess Daly on the upcoming series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

According to the Sunday Mirror, the show’s bosses are considering signing the former winner of the show to cover presenting duties during Daly’s maternity leave.

A source said: “Bosses hope that she will help give the show a bit of a shake-up alongside Bruce Forsyth.”

“They have been keen for her to have a role on the show for some time but so far have struggled to find an opportunity to bring her in. But Tess’s pregnancy is the perfect opening.”

Tess, 37, who is expecting her second child in June with presenter husband Vernon Kay i think is really great on strictly come dancing . The timing of the show and her pregnancy just don’t coincide so thats a shame because it would be great for more pregnant women to feature on prime time TV.

We which her all the best with her pregnancy and fingers crossed she’s back presenting the 2010 edition of strictly com dancing 🙂 maternity & Breastfeeding T-shirts
