MAM changing bag

The MAM changing bag, is really good, I asked for the green version so its good for both genders.

Starting off it’s large and spacious so you can fit everything in with ease, it has buggy straps which lift the bag higher, which helps to keep the bag in place on the buggy. The only downside to these straps is that they don’t tighten so the bag can still slip down the buggy handles.

It has lots and lots of pockets, so if your organised (unlike me) you can have a pocket for everything, the bag comes with a separate insulated bottle holder which you can pop onto the buggy alone if you so wish.

The bag also has a lovely large changing mat, which has elastic at the corners so you can attach a muslin to so baby always has somewhere soft to lie while doing those nappy changes while out and about. It has a removable bum bag so you don’t need too take the whole bag with you when changing a nappy, the bum bag has a zipped pocket and one open pocket. Currently I use one pocket for mine and hubby’s phones and the other for any loose change I might have.

I give the mam changing bag 9/10 losing a point because the buggy straps don’t adjust

Graco Symbio B Review (originally posted on www.amummyshonestreview.blogspot.com 16/05/13)

Well where to start, when me and my hubby first found out I was expecting I knew I wanted a travel system that was light (I’m 5″3 and 7st 10) easy to fold and compact, and most of all cheap šŸ™‚ so we decided to go 2nd hand šŸ™‚ and we decided that the Graco Symbio B was the one for us, so I’m going to break it down into my favourite parts, parts I dislike and what I’d change about it šŸ™‚

Manuver-ability –Ā The Symbio B is really easy to manuver, the front wheels can swivel 360 degrees or lock into place if you should want to. You can even push it with one hand.

Compact –Ā The Symbio B is very compact, it folds down really small and can fit easily through two closely parked cars with ease.

Price –Ā The Symbio B is a cheap travel system, if you know where to look, the cheapest I’ve seen it for is Ā£199.99 in Toys’R’Us we bought ours second hand for Ā£150.

Colours –Ā The Symbio B comes in different colours, Urban, Arctic Blue (this may be the original Symbio model colour as I’ve never seen the Symbio B), Chilli Red and Boysenberry (exclusive to Toys’R’Us) as we stayed team yellow during our pregnancy we went for Urban. (I would love for there to be a bigger choice of colours, or inter-changeableĀ ones so you could pick & mix if you wanted to)

Things I love with the Symbio B
I love that the Symbio B is lightweight in total it weighs 7.5kg, without the attachment the chassis is approx 5kg, I love how smooth a ride it is for my daughter Elena, it’s been rolled over stones, cobbles, and uneven tarmac and she has happily looked around or as most the time she’s in there slept soundly. I also love the Carry-cot, its spacious for small babies ( might be a bit of a squeeze for larger babies) but as Elena was a tiny 19 inches she fit in it with room to spare (probably could have fitted two of her in there) she did get bored of being in the carry-cot rather quickly because she’s very inquisitive and nosy (she loves being sat up so she can have a good nosy). The pushchair part is spacious and well padded it reclines right back so she can sleep easily, it also sits up and sits up straight. Elena loves sitting up. I also love where the break is placed (just on the side of the handle, it means your not going to knock it easily with your foot and once the break is on it won’t shift about on a moving bus.

Things I hate with the Symbio B
As our Symbio B was 2nd hand it didn’t come with the originalĀ rain-coverĀ (it may have been the originalĀ rain-coverĀ for the Graco Symbio) ours was the newer model with the oldĀ rain-coverĀ (annoying but it works for now) I will be looking in to how to make a rain-cover myself and changing the design slightly. I also hate the size of the basket its so small. (Listen up Graco, the Symbio B could do with a bigger and deeper basket) other than those two things there’s not much to hate about the Symbio B.

So my score out of 10, I give it 8.5/10 losing 1 and a half points because of the basket and raincover

MAM feeding set (updated 21/8/13) (originally posted on www.amummyshonestreview.blogspot.com 21/7/13)

The mam feeding set is brilliant, it has two compartments, so you can have dinner in one side and a pudding in the other, I recieved the pink version with two tone green spoon and fork. The one downside is that the bowl stains rather easily
It has a small handle which is great for gripping onto the bowl when little hands try to grab the bowl from you,

Elena still hasn’t quite got to grips with the spoon and fork yet but another couple of weeks and she’ll have it cracked, two weeks on and she’s cracked it, she knows exactly what to do with them and with a tiny bit of food on the fork and spoon she can feed herself.

I give the feeding set 9/10 losing a point for the easy staining

MAM starter cup 150ml (originally posted on www.amummyshonestreview.blogspot.com 24/7/13)

Well this one will be short but sweet šŸ™‚

The mam starter cup is excellent, Elena managed to get the hang of it immediately, it comes in one size 150ml, the spout is great for little mouths.

With Elena we don’t fill it up to much as she is learning to drink by herself, as long as we don’t fill it up too much she can hold onto it herself and give a good go at drinking by herself.

The cup comes in different colours which are available on the MAM UK website

I give this cup 10/10
