My Obsession with the John Lewis Baby Department

Last weekend, while the sun was shining, we went shopping in John Lewis Stratford. I’m not sure how we came to be indoors on one of the best mornings of the year so far, but we had such fun! I’d My work colleagues gave me John Lewis vouchers as a baby shower gift, and we finally had the opportunity to spend them! John Lewis’ children’s department is amazing. It’s packed to the brim with gorgeous own-brand clothes, plus a few well-chosen boutique vendors. The own-brand toys are fantastic as well – it’s the first time I’ve seen a display where I’ve wanted to buy everything. What’s more, we spent the last half hour trying out double buggies with the most helpful shop assistant I’ve ever met. She knew how every buggy folded and adapted, and now I’ve fallen in love with the iCandy Apple to Pear. More on my double buggy indecision to come!

{I want this}

1. Jellycat Fuddlewuddle Elephant, £17 – too adorable to leave on the shelf!

2. John Lewis Octopus Surf Suit with Hat, £20 – Ivo’s loves his swimming lessons, but he’s growing out of his JoJo Maman Bebe suit, so time for a new one. I love that this one included a matching hat, so that he’ll be protected from the sun when we go on holiday

3. John Lewis Seagull Stripe T-Shirt, £10 – A bit of a naughty purchase, but I’m a sucker for nautical themed and stripey clothes, and this combined both! Plus, at £10, it’s cheaper than similar Mini-Boden applique t-shirts.

4. Fish in the Tub Bath Toy, £4.95 – We’re desperately trying to stop Ivo from standing up in the bath, and we hoped this would cause enough of a distraction. It hasn’t worked….he still stands up…but he loves the fish!

(not pictured) John Lewis Helicopter & Stripe Rompers, Pack of 2, £15 – We actually needed sleep suits – so this was all we were meant to actually buy! We’re a sucker for anything helicopter themed, so it was an obvious buy.
