September Edit

Today I'd like to introduce you to a brand new blog series. Every month from now on I will select five products from the little maldod shop to share with you in my own monthly 'edit'.

I take great pride in selecting the products that you'll find at little maldod and am looking forward to shining a light on them a little more. They might be brand new product just in, best sellers that I know you already love or something that we're enjoying using in our own home.

I love working with other brands (all who happen to be Mums doing what they love too), it's truly one of my favourite things about running my shop. I hope that this series will help showcase some fantastic handcrafted work and introduce you to some of my favourite independent businesses along the way.

So, on to September's edit.
1. Watermelon Print by Blossom and Bear
I LOVE this print, it's colours are a lovely reminder of Summer days but will make your walls happy all year round.
I'm a big fan of all of Sarah's work, you will find her marvelous crochet baskets and mini prints in the shop. There's some new Blossom and Bear items coming to the shop this Autumn too, I can't wait to show you.

2. Sophie La Girafe Soft Teething Ring
I challenge you to find a baby that doesn't adore Sophie. My two have loved their original Sophies (also available in the shop, here) but Anwen has become very fond of a smaller teether too. In fact, there was almost a FULL ON meltdown yesterday when I wouldn't let her get her hands on a teether I was photographing. Lesson on juggling work and children duly remembered.

3. White Organic Bunny.
This sweet bunny hopped into the shop over the Summer and has fitted right in. Super soft and a great neutral shade, making it the perfect baby shower or newborn gift.

4. Sophie La Girafe Protection Cream.
I'm so pleased to have these gorgeous products in the shop. This cream has so many uses- great for outdoor protection as well as doubling up as a nappy cream. I've heard a rumour that all the products are great for Mums too. My two both have sensitive skin so we're using the full range, I'll be reporting back here with how we get on.
[Update, don't forget (like I did) that there's FREE delivery on all 'Bath and Body' until Sunday 6th September, with code 'WELOVESOPHIE']

5.  Mini Milestone Cards
FINALLY a box of Milestone Cards that we can use! When I discovered this lovely product both my two had sailed (crawled/stumbled/teethed) their way passed the baby milestones and I was left just admiring the lovely gifts that I package and send out as orders.
These mini cards are a box of blank cards, each with great designs and illustrations, there to help you capture those funny sayings, questions and pondering of your little ones. I've captured some lovely things from Wilf that I would otherwise have forgotten all about.

While I'm on the subject of Milestone Cards, would you like to know a little secret?! There might just be some brand NEW Milestone Cards right around the corner....who said reaching milestones stopped at the edge of one?!

More on that next month....who am I kidding, stay tuned on my social media and I'm sure I'll tell you all about it soon enough.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed reading. There's direct links for all the products above, so do pop over to the shop if you fancy buying any of them for yourself, your babe or as a gift.
