We are very excited to have a BabyBjorn Travel Cot worth £199 up for grabs. The cot was a huge success in The Dads awards and the focus groups loved the product for its quality and ease of use, awarding it the prestigious Gold Award in the Best Travel Product category.
Straight off, let’s be clear, I am 100% behind the Mumsnet Miscarriage Care campaign… Time and again we work with parents who have been treated with such a lack of compassion ,that quite frankly, it is inhumane.

Altough written from a dads perspective to his little girl, I think so relevant for all parents. For our little girls yes, but also for our little boys who i’m sure we all wish to grow up to be that husband.
