I’m kidding. Obviously.
Although there is no denying that if you have small people, you are spoilt for choice right now. And I don’t mean crazy-expensive choice, I mean choice on the British high street…
Mango has just launched its first ever Baby range. I love the star print trousers (above, £9.99) and the star-footed leggings – because baby’s socks have a way of working themselves free from little feet. Speaking of which, the suede moccasins (£22.99) are bonkersly cute. As is the striped sweater (£14.99), star t-shirt (£7.99) and the star tulle skirt (£12.99).
Boots have recently relaunched their Mini Club range and there are gorgeous bargains a-plenty. This blue floral all-in-one is an absolute steal – and this is perfect for little stars (or rascals. Opinion highly dependent upon amount of sleep said child has allowed the parents). This pretty top is perfect for little girls – as is this dress- and you know how we love a striped jumper. I am loving the idea of the adorable pinny set post haste for my big girl – but how sweet would it look on a teeny person? And you can use your Advantage points. Bonus.
Zara’s mini collection is an excess of sweetness. I always hit it at sales time and stock up for next year. You know how i love a hat with ears (£7.99), and this little blue cardigan is on my list (it matches my little boy’s eyes); this little hooded coat (£17.99) will keep baby cosy; and how lovely is this little denim dress (£14.99)? I love this little outfit, too.
The Little White Company is my go-to for gorgeous presents when friends have babies – or when there’s a baby shower, flavour unknown: the elephant print sleepsuit (£22) or striped (£20) number would be perfect presents. This bear hoodie has already made it into my little boy’s wardrobe; these corduroy dungarees (£28) are perfect for crawlers and wobbly walkers;
