The Story of Our Birth:
Born in 2006, our second daughter, Livia, was the inspiration behind Is Your Bag Packed?, which grew from an idea into a reality when she was just a few weeks old.
It's been a lesson in juggling; I had many a conversation with suppliers & Bank Managers whilst breastfeeding - it's remarkable how much you can get done and how well fed your baby can be! It's been great to see my idea come to life and grow alongside her.
We've included many organic ranges, alongside the more 'standard' items, but ONLY have natural/organic baby toiletries. I feel quite strongly about what I put on my own childrens' skin, having researched when our oldest was a baby, and developed eczema - did you know that you absorb 60% of what goes on your skin? Frightening really. Consequently, I couldn't sell something that I feel isn't right, so apologies if you can't find what you're looking for. We stock great products from great companies such as Pur, Vital Touch (Natalia) and Green People. For more information about them and their ethos', please go to their respective websites.
Having a baby is a really exciting time of life, whether this is your first, second, third (or if you're VERY brave, fourth or more!) baby. Babies seem to grow so fast, so enjoy every second of those newborn baby moments and don't forget to put your feet up before your little one arrives; life is never restful again, but is so much better in so many ways. Most of all, have fun and don't worry about that missed sleep....you won't catch up on it, EVER, but it becomes less important as the years go by!
