Bumpkins is excited to be offering:
Our aim is to support expectant parents in the locality of York, Stamford Bridge, Malton, Scarborough and we hope further afield. The location was specifically chosen to offer our services to parents and expectant parents who are not currently being offered our services. These services are aimed at supporting mums and dads through the stages of pregnancy, birth, up to the little ones first birthday. We will be forging strong community links with an emphasis in nurturing babies and supporting new mums and dads.
Expecting Mum & Baby is owned by two York mums who like to stock unusual and practical products that can’t readily be found on the High Street. Many of the items are designed and made by mums and we especially like using local suppliers such as Little Magpies, Piccalilly and Boo’s Bunny. Visit us for a personal shopping experience whether you want an expert bra fitting, a new baby gift or just a browse through our impressive range of Blade & Rose leggings!
Those of you who’ve known us for a while may have noticed that we have updated our name and launched a new website which reflects the fact that we no longer just sell maternity clothes but also baby clothes, gifts, soft and wooden toys for newborn babies and children up to 3 years old. We have also expanded our organic range over the last few months, with new organic baby clothing and a new organic skincare range for mums and babies.
Pop in and see us in our Gillygate shop, or head on over to our Facebook page and say hello. We look forward to seeing you!
Just wanted to sing the praises of Expecting on Gillygate! I went for a bra fitting shortly after having our little boy – so lovely and helpful! Fantastic friendly service going above and beyond – highly recommend.

We focus on the safety needs of parents and carers through each
of the different ‘firsts’ e.g. ‘first outing’, ‘first swim’, and also focus on first time parents.
We carefully select products from well known manufacturers such as Gro, Edz, Delphin, Banz, Diono, Clippasafe, SwimFin and Aqua Sphere.
We sell innovative products like Swimfins, Grobags, Edz/Banz Ear Defenders, Delphin Swim discs and many more.
Mumblers can collect at short notice, out of hours, from just near Clifton Moor.
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.

Our latest development is to give our customers the opportunity to both view and purchase our products on line at their own convinience However, our friendly, experienced staff are always more than happy to help with either product or fitting advice and are available by telephone 01759 301201 or e-mail email@example.com
I’d definitely recommend calling footloose in Pocklington, they specialise in children’s shoes. I don’t trust anyone else with my children’s shoe fittings (extremes of very small an narrow to very very wide ) they’re passionate about getting the right fit and if they don’t they won’t make do.

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

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