Mellow Mummy: Aldi Mum and Baby : Taking life as it comes...

Aldi Mum and Baby

Holly and I have been trying out a few of the mother and baby essentials from Aldi.  On Thursday 28th of February, Aldi are hosting a special mother and baby event with a good range of Special Buys including big brands such as Avent and Tommee Tippee at very attractive prices.

The Tommee Tippee First Cup has become a classic.  We had never tried one before but Holly uses one at nursery so I knew she would get on with it.  It seems to be the perfect size for her little hands and she is, like most other babies I've met, very comfortable drinking from the hard spout.  It isn't leak-proof so does tend to dribble a bit when Holly throws it around a bit but when I fold the spout down it is reasonably sound and I'd be happy carrying it in my changing bag.  At just 99p in Aldi as a Special Buy, the Tommee Tippee First Cup is a total bargain.

The Grip-Tight Flexi Folding Bib is a simple pelican bib that is flexible enough that you can roll it up and put it into your changing bag.  The bib has a press-through mechanism to hold it in place and we found it relatively easy to use.  If the bib has been stored in a rolled or folded position then it is quite hard to get the crumb-catcher area to stand out enough from the bib to actually catch crumbs.  As a basic for use when out and about I think it is still good value for money at £1.89 as an Aldi Special Buy.

The last item we tried from Aldi was a real revelation to me, a simple cotton children's pillow for use in a cotbed or junior bed.  The quality was brilliant and at just £3.99 that really surprised me.  I recently bought an adult's pillow for Lara's bed for the same price and it was very disappointing but this pillow by John Cotton was a lot better quality.  It is firm without being lumpy and a mix of cotton and polyester for breathability.  It fits into our junior pillow cases.

Look out for the Aldi mum and baby Special Buys in store from the 28th of February while stocks last.
