PARENTING: Mama Hug Gift Boxes

I want to share with you this amazing small business that I discovered on Instagram recently; it’s Mama Hug, firstly let’s talk about the name! It’s amazing because when we are on the journey to becoming a mum we could really do with a hug. They ship out to you ready made gift boxes full of must have items for your vaginal labour, section and breastfeeding journey. As new mums we are severely neglected, we are sent home sometimes within hours of having a baby either via major surgery or vaginally we are then left
To our own devices to care for another human whilst not having the time to even pee. It’s exhaustingly and daunting and not every new mum has a support network. 

Here is what the company have to say about their boxes. 

“Postpartum Care Kits
Wouldn’t it be nice if we nurtured new mums the way we nurture new babies? Unfortunately when it comes to postpartum care, mums are so often at the back of the queue. Yes, childbirth is beautiful, but even the most straightforward of deliveries can leave mum feeling battered and bruised.
It was this thought that grew into Mama Hug – a postpartum gift service for new mums. Moving away
from traditional ‘push presents’ and baby shower gifts, our selection of postpartum care kits are designed with one goal in mind – to get mum on the
You can choose from the Arrival Survival, which is perfect for natural deliveries, the Caesar Easer; ideal for C-Section mums; and the Bosom Buddy; an essential selection for breastfeeding mamas.
We like to think of our care kits as a helping hand for new mums who have just been through what may well be the most physically enduring experience of their lives. And anyway, why does baby, who is happiest in a pair of willing arms, always get the best gifts?
We hope you enjoy the selection and welcome your feedback. Find us @mamahuguk”

These will make the best gifts, a useful gift that will get used and appreciated. They start off at £69.99 and are worth every penny. 

They have 3 boxes available to purchase - 

The arrival survival 
The Caesar easer
The Bosom buddy 

I honesty recommend any new breastfeeding mum or nun to be to have a look at what they offer and maybe pop it on your push present list.

DAYS OUT: Finkly Down Farm - AD

The farm itself is situated in a business park in Andover, it’s quite a straightforward route from Portsmouth’s direction. 

It’s a huge space to explore, they have both indoor and outdoor things for the kids to do. As you walk in there is the gift shop and then feeding station where there are a lot of hungry (greedy) goats. 

The indoor space consists of picnic area and cafe as well as a huge amount of soft play for all ages. 
Down side is parents do not supervise their children so there are over twos in the under two section putting the fear of god into the mums of the babies in there. 

Autumn loved the soft play there was all different types of areas for her to explore and get rid of any excess energy. It is honestly HUGE! And there is ample seating for parents to take a 5 minute respite. 

They have so many signs with information on all different animals, it’s an amazing learning environment for children, there is not only lots to learn but amazing talking points for questions and discovery. 

They have so many outdoor activities alongside the animals. 
Crazy golf
Outdoor play area
Mini pool
Truck driving 
Sand pit
Sheep racing 
Birds of prey display 

And so much more. 

Honestly every time you visit you can discover more.

The farm is open 10-6 daily and have new baby meerkats too! This was such a wonderful surprise as we love meerkats. 

I highly recommend Finkley down farm, it will be fun for all the family and be sure to tire out the little ones. 
Autumn had a great day and was so sad when it was time to go! We can’t wait to start planning our next visit.
