Eat Sleep Love 

This morning I spent a lovely couple of hours at Eat Sleep Love in Blackheath.  Their Blogger’s Breakfast was a great opportunity to meet some local mums and of course check out this new baby and nursery store! 

  
I remember being pregnant the first time round and dragging my heavily pregnant self to John Lewis to try and test drive some prams. Now don’t get me wrong, I love John Lewis…but the baby section at Bluewater is busy! You end up loitering while waiting for a sales assistant to become free, which is fine, but when you’re heavily pregnant with swollen ankles you really can’t be doing with it and it turns into a struggle rather than an enjoyable experience.

This is why I think Eat Sleep Love is onto a winner – it’s a by appointment consultancy, where you can browse the whole shop by yourselves, test out the prams, furniture and baby carriers, and have Laura and her team’s experience and full attention. Don’t worry I’m not being paid to write this I just think it is a brilliant idea and wish it had been around when I was pregnant!

They have also handpicked a great selection of baby and nursery accessories…here’s some of my favourites…

    (Well I think this was Pip’s favourite!)

  Some very cute toy storage by 3 Sprouts!

And I really loved their knitted baby clothes! Laura’s mum hand knits them all in Baby Cashmerino ✨ (mental note to work on my knitting!)   

  
   
I couldn’t leave without buying one of the dinosaur toy baskets for Milo…well it was supposed to be for him, I think Pip might have other ideas… #secondchildproblems 

  
A big thank you to Laura from Eat Sleep Love, her team and Joolz for inviting us and making it such a child friendly (and Mummy-friendly!) morning – it’s the first event like this I’ve been to with both my little ones and it was surprisingly really relaxing (we won’t mention the baby vomit Milo…..!). A big recommendation from me to other mums and mums-to-be 💗
