As well as having our own online shop and shops on Ebay and Amazon, we also hold stands and ‘pop-up’ shops at local baby/toddler groups.

Just wanted to share with everyone how helpful Sarah from First Child Safety has been. I couldn’t decide whether to purchase foam arm bands or a swim fin for my little boy. She allowed me collect both the arm bands and the fin from her house to enable us to test them out and decide which suited us best before we bought them. I think this is a great idea to be able to ‘try before you buy’ and wanted to recommend this company to you fellow MUMblers.

White Stuff

Fashion chain selling clothes and accessories for men and women, some with nature-inspired prints.

I went into White Stuff on Stonegate for the first time today with my 9 week old son, and experienced some really excellent customer service 🙂 I was offered help with the clothes I was carrying as I headed to the fitting rooms, and the lady told me about a room upstairs that I was welcome to use if I needed to feed my baby. After I’d made my purchase I mentioned this to the sales assistant who showed me upstairs to a lovely sitting room setup, complete with toys, books & magazines etc. There were even free refreshments available! I was told I was welcome to use the space again if I ever needed somewhere to feed in town. Massive thanks go to the staff at White Stuff

ND, May 17

Absolutely agree! The people working in white stuff are all absolutely lovely! They’re so helpful and child friendly.
