    When my children were small (many years ago!) there was only Boots and Mothercare for us ordinary people to choose from (the wealthy ones had John Lewis). When each new catalogue came out we devoured them and knew and discussed every new product. We could tell from the colour of another mum’s nappy buckets which year they bought their equipment! I remember those days (and both shops) with great affection.

    I remember first going in Mothercare when I was pregnant and it scared the hell out of me. It was full of stuff for babies/kids that I never knew existed and certainly had no idea how to use! After getting over the initial fear it’s been great, and they were so helpful,when we had to choose the next car seat after the baby carrier. We go to the Warrington one too! x

    • i remember my first visit too i think it is a right of passage 😉 i was doubled over buying pregnancy pillow with bad back. will be sad if it goes as going in a supermarket won’t feel as special 🙁 x

  3. Yep- we need to do everything we can to support our high streets. But, the downside of that is we are sucked into buying absolutely shedloads of things that we don’t need. At all! It’s a toughy! 😉

  4. They are starting to extort people who decide to have children even more out of their money because if MC closes it pushes people to places like Mamas and Papa’s and Kiddicare which are quite expensive xx

    I remember my first trip to Mothercare when I was pregnant with Ben – I was completely overwhelmed & had a bit of a meltdown lol
