At the Glasgow Baby Show, we met several ‘mumpreneurs’ who have started Glasgow-based, baby-related businesses.  So this blog is to show our support!  Nappy Makers has created a range of modern cloth nappies, called Lovewee, all produced in Hillington.  The mums behind this small business are hosting a ‘nappuccino’ morning on Tuesday 28th April at the Beanscene in Clarkston from 10:30-noon.  Visit to try lots of different types of cloth nappies and slings with lots of other similar-minded mums.  Or visit the website http://www.nappymakers.com for more info.  H & C Attractions, based in Hamilton, provides everything from bouncy castles and ball pools to face painting and entertainers for children’s birthday parties.  Their approach is flexible, so you can use them for a full service or for a single item – whatever you need!  Phone 07721 014540 for more info.  If you fancy becoming a ‘mumpreneur’ yourself, consider opening a Glasgow-based franchise of the award-winning Baby Ballet song and dance academy.  Visit http://www.babyballet.co.uk or contact claire@babyballet.co.uk to learn more.

What will your baby dress up as for Halloween?  A pumpkin?  A black cat?  A baby (whose mummy doesn’t know how to sew)?  If you’re a wizard at sewing costumes, then you’re all set.  If not, however, you can find ready-to-wear Halloween costumes for babies and toddlers at: Amazon.co.uk, ASDA, Baby Gap, Mothercare, Marks & Spencer’s, Tescos, or Woolworths.  Wishing you lots of fun with your little angel (or devil)!

Boots are currently running a 20%-off event on selected baby products, from Baby Bjorn® carriers to Calpol®.
