Since having Imogen I’ve discovered I really enjoy shopping for more unique and original things for her to wear. Browsing on Etsy and Instagram and discovering new small businesses has become my new favourite pastime – well you need something to do at feeding time!!
One of these I’ve found is Freddie Fox and Co. Run by Clare Young, a teaching assistant at a village primary school in East Yorkshire, who’s currently on maternity leave, Freddie Fox and Co make homemade Bandana Bibs, Infinity Scarves, Teethers and Top Knots. She says that being a teaching assistant she is always making things and being crafty – especially when having to come up with classroom displays & making props for school plays! She thought maternity leave was the perfect opportunity to start up her business and I couldn’t agree more!
I was immediately attracted to the bright and unusual fabrics she uses – currently in her etsy shop are items with hedgehog and pheasant patterns!
Imogen is loving her new Bandaba bib in ‘Sweet Escape’ and I love how vibrant the fabric is. Complete with matching top knot!
I know baby head wear is a love it or hate it thing for most mothers- I’m firmly in the love it camp!
You can never underestimate the amount of bibs you will need for your baby- and for me, the more unique and different the better so I’ll definitely be snapping up some more from Freddie Fox and Co! I loved that they were made with great quality material, and the backs are super soft so they won’t irritate babies skin at all.
