Product Review: Close Caboo Baby Carrier

Before I was a mum, I never really got why people used baby carriers. “Why don’t they just use a buggy?” I used to think, but I TOTALLY get it now.

It was really important for me to be able to get out and about with my baby, and not be grounded by a massive pram.

My Top 5 Buys

1. Perfect Prep Machine

Once we realised breast feeding wasn’t working out for us, and that buying pre-mixed formula would work out costly, I managed to convince my boyfriend to buy a Perfect Prep machine. We were lucky enough to find one on a local selling site for £30 but having had it in my life I would happily pay full price.
