Now I know it may come as a surprise to some of you (ha! yeah, right… have I shut up about this baby) but, I am pregnant. Yes, it’s only 9 weeks until the big Due Date. I am of course terrified of the birth and worried about the sleep deprivation but hey, it’ll be fine. It has to be.

I am also in massive nesting mode. We gave pretty much everything away after our last baby, thinking that was it, but I luckily got my way and we’re about to welcome number 3. The lovely folks at Shnuggle got in touch to ask if I had a moses basket. Well I must admit that my immediate response was no and that I didn’t want one anyway. Both sons seemed to wake in them far too easily – every move making the basket squeak and rustle. So it seems Shnuggle is the answer to my prayers – they make moses style baskets without the basket material, but still with breathable holes. And better still they’re easy to clean. So a silent basket for (hopefully silent) babies – hurrah!

They also make a Shnuggle bath which is basically a bucket style bath made of foam – so you use less water, your baby stays feeling cocoon like due to the dimensions and the water even stays warmer for longer. More splashing and less crying I’d imagine.

I have one Shnuggle basket, rocking stand and twin-pack of cotton fitted sheets RRP£108 and one Shnuggle mint green bath RRP £30 to giveaway – to a total value of £138 to giveaway to one lucky reader. There are lots of ways to enter – see the Rafflecopter form below.
