Wednesday Wish-List: Sleep Essentials

It goes without saying that a newborn comes with a list longer than my arm of ‘kit’ it requires – pram, nursery furniture, clothing, bathing, changing… The list is never-ending. Like a lot of other soon to be mums, I’ve spent a lot of time compiling wish-lists and scouring websites to tick off some of these items, and after talking about it with a few other soon-to-be-blogger-mums, decided to compile these into various wish list posts. Wish-list Wednesday’s will go…

I love reading ‘What’s In My Bag?’ post’s for no other reason than I am a nosy so and so! If I’m honest I can’t really think of any specific thing that is all that interesting about them, yet I’d gladly read a thousand – sometimes the most mundane posts are the most entertaining. I never had any desire to do one though, given that my bag is an absolute tip 90% of the time and contains absolutely nothing of…
