Family friendly treatments at Spruce Moose beauty salon, Harrogate

Tuesday, February 28th, 2017

Last year I was lucky enough to win an express manicure at Spruce Moose, here in Harrogate, in a competition on their Facebook page. As my nails are ridiculously short, (I don’t bite them, but they do break really easily) I treated my daughter (known here on the blog as Chiglet ūüôā ), and the lovely lady at Spruce Moose did a really terrific job.

I recently saw an update on the Spruce Moose Facebook page about ‘family friendly’ treatments, which will be offered on Mondays between 10am and 1pm. What a great idea! Any Mums and Dads looking for pampering ‘me time’ can take the children, too, as there will be a¬†safe play area with clean, well looked after toys; extra treatment time; a¬†private feeding area and plenty of wheel space for prams and push chairs.

New parents will be ‚Äėappier with a Baby Feed Wheel

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Baby Feed WheelsThe Android and iPhone markets are awash with parenting apps to help new mums and dads track their baby’s feed times. The proliferation of these parenting applications leaves little doubt about the need for a feeding reminder in the homes of new babies, and the reassurance for parents of knowing the last time their little one had a feed.
The electronic world has recently discovered what we at Chiggs have known since 2005; that monitoring baby’s feed times helps to ease the stress of a new baby, be it the life changing experience of a firstborn, or the juggling of an existing family around the 24hr demands of a new addition.
As every parent knows, a baby‚Äôs feeds occur around the clock so having an accurate reminder of the previous feed helps parents decide whether another feed is due ‚Äď especially when their new son or daughter is crying in the middle of the night.

So why, in this age of using the mobile phone for everything from barcode reader to video recorder, is the battery-free Baby Feed Wheel a better option?

Send it with love.  Baby Feed Wheel reverse

A Baby Feed Wheel can be given as a gift for new parents and can also be posted as a new baby card complete with a greeting on the reverse – it‚Äôs much more pleasant to give and receive! Each Baby Feed Wheel is supplied with an envelope, is printed with “to…” and “from…” on the reverse, and can be posted for just the cost of a normal stamp- ‘large letter’ stamp is not required!

Colour co-ordinated

With a choice of traditional colours, friends and family can give a blue, pink or lemon present to celebrate the new arrival.

Smartphones tell the time, but in their homes people glance at the clock on the mantelpiece ‚Äďwhich is the perfect place to put a Baby Feed Wheel!

How clean is your phone?

Mobile phones are handled in-between attending to babies needs, but a Baby Feed Wheel will only be used at the¬† time of baby‚Äôs feed ‚Äď keep those nasty handset germs away from the little one.

It‚Äôs the perfect gift for a baby shower, and the lemon Wheel is ideal before the ‚Äúreveal‚ÄĚ.

 

All power to the Baby Feed Wheel!

Egg-cited to attend a local Easter Market

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

I’ve taken Chiggs Wheels on the road this week- a large¬†local Harrogate business runs occasional ‘markets’ so their staff can browse and buy in their lunch hour.¬†There are all sorts of local businesses in attendance- jewellery, greeting cards, the local Molton Brown shop has a stand and this time a lady was selling¬†Easter bunny jumpers, too!

I’ve attended a couple of times before- we weren’t outside this time thankfully (it was snowing!)-¬†and it’s always an enjoyable event. I like getting out and about, chatting to people and getting feedback about our products. One of the first ladies¬†to visit the market¬†came over to say that she’d bought a Baby Feed Wheel for her nephew at a previous market, and he said that it was the most useful thing they were bought- made my day!

Another lady was interested in the Baby Feed Wheel and made the comment that “surely baby tells you when they are hungry” Ah, well, that’s the point, I explained- they don’t! Babies cry because they are hungry, tired, cold, hot, need a nappy change- or are just that way out! The first thing most Mums and Dads do to narrow down the options is recall when the last feed was. If it was 40 minutes ago, try something else like a nappy change- if it was 3 hours ago, baby is most likely hungry. And that’s what the Baby Feed Wheel is for!
