Let there be light

I’ve made no secret in the past of my love for the innovative and stylish baby gadget brand Brother Max. In fact, I was almost wanting not to like their latest offering, in the hope of becoming a bit less predictable.

Sorry folks.

They’ve done it again. The dual purpose plug in nightlight is another item I wish I’d known about this time 19 months ago.

Far from being your ordinary nightlight, this one is so intuitive it can actually tell if it’s dark already. That’s right – you don’t even need to switch it on. Imagine those milk feeds at 3am, with no need to maneouvre a baby in one hand and find a light switch with the other…. Continue reading

You know it’s cold when…

This is the display on your brand spanking new Brother Max Bath And Room Thermometer…

Being the terribly ill-prepared (pun not intended, but while it’s there I’m going to stick with it) parents that we are, the (self-proclaimed) Northern Love Machine and myself have never invested in a baby thermometer.

Cinderella shall go to the ball

Getting married is pretty expensive, as is saving for a house.

So I am hugely pleased that the wonderful Brother Max brand is sponsoring me to go to the MAD Blog Awards in London in September. I was all prepared to do my acceptance speech for the Best Baby Blog Award via video link on a big screen, but now it turns out I don’t have to.

Of course it could all go horribly wrong. This sponsorship malarkey could actually mean I’ll have to sit there and clap enthusiastically as one of the other finalists goes to accept their award. Continue reading
