What Noah Wore: Zippysuit Review

Just before Noah arrived, we were very kindly gifted some lovely items from Cheshire based company Zippysuit.

Zippysuit are known for their fun, funky & fresh approach to babywear and products and from perusing their website its easy to see why - from the absorbent bandana bibs to the funky coloured muslin squares, everything is the perfect mix of fun & functional.

We chose the Mice About Town Zippysuit to try out with Noah - I loved the Alarm clock suit in navy and was very tempted to go with that but I decided that neutral colours would be better in his newborn days as we didn't know what colours he might suit and I always think all babies suit neutral colours most of all when they're tiny!

The suit is made from 100% cotton and feels super soft and comfortable - it also washes perfectly which is so important with new baby clothes as chances are they'll be going through a fair few washes!

My favourite features are the elasticated ankles which help to keep babies feet IN the foot area of the suit which is difficult to do with new babies and so often their little legs end up lost inside a romper suit - not the case with the zippysuit!

And of course the best feature is where its name comes from - the zip!! No more faffing around with loads of annoying poppers - there's just one simple zip to undo the suit! This makes changes so much easier and I really don't know why ALL baby suits aren't made this way?! The zip back in lined to protected babies skin from any rubbing too - everything has been thought of here!

The Mice About Town Zippysuit is available HERE priced at £15.00

We were also sent the lovely navy & white star print Bamboo swaddle blanket - bamboo muslin cotton is such an ideal fabric for baby blankets as it just gets softer with every wash, is machine washable and can be tumble dried, and is breathable making it safe for swaddling and they can be used for so many things such as changing on the go, car seat lining, pram shading or as a breastfeeding scarf!

The blankets are available HERE priced at £20.00 for a pack of two and also come in pink spotted designs too.

  2. Aww! That is just gorgeous! The zip is a great idea! The poppers used to drive me crazy when my girls were little x

  3. The elasticasted ankles sound great as there always seems to be a short period between growing out of one size and not yet into the next
