Alva Christmas Nappies

So here we are in the middle of November and I would like some recognition for the willpower it has taken me not to have put up the Christmas tree already!

I have however purchased my beautiful girls the latest Alva Nappy bundle offered by Fill Your Pants, and it is absolutely gorgeous.

I’m always a sucker for these bundles but this one was a “must have”. I cannot wait to see Gracie and Margot in them.

For a review of Alva nappies look here. 

Look what arrived in the post today!


We received a number of packages in the post today, and I couldn’t be more excited! The majority of the swag is from Little Green Radicals, we got a hat, one long sleeve, and one short sleeve top, two lots of leggings, a romper, and a pair of dungarees. We absolutely these pieces, they are bright, beautiful, and importantly unisex so reusable should we have a second baby.

We also received a pair of second-hand pink leggings by Fred’s World. Rounding out our swag, we got a 5 new Little Lamb two part nappies to replace the set that we’ve been using at nighttime as Gracie has basically outgrown them! These new nappies have their main liner sown directly in so that will be interesting. Once we’ve used them a couple of times we will post a review of the whole Little Lamb range.

Our new baby clothes haul

So at a little over three months old, our baby girl weighed in at a sizable 16lb (or 7.2kg if you are like me). Her 3 to 6 month clothes hasn’t fit in quite a while so we’ve had to buy lots of 6 to 9.


As much as we try to buy our clothes from organic sources, sometimes time, and money, have limited us. Sometimes we end up buying standard clothes to bulk out our collections, especially when she’s outgrowing her clothes so quickly.

We picked up these long-sleeved vests from Sainsbury’s for £8 or £9. Technically from their boys range, we thought those colours complimented the rest of her clothes, and we saw no reason for it to be gendered. We adore that mustard/yellow colour on her, and find that it pairs well with most of her leggings. Mummy has also been pushing me to put her in some more monochrome clothes, so the black and white, and grey vests will start that off well.

We also recieved a knitted care package from Gracie’s GG.


We got a lovely collection of headbands for Gracie, as well as a rainbow coloured knitted hoodie that just perfect for her to wear in her pram, or in the sling.
