I heard of Blooming Marvellous when a buddy told me when my son was only 3 months old (he is now 2). I was attempting for him using a bottle warmer I'd purchased from boots to warm up a bottle and out with him. It was simply one of these where you press on a little button and set off an exothermic reaction. It wasn't that great once that was it and once it'd been used. I purchased one and it had been brilliant it was a flask having an extended lid that you stand the bottle in and could fill with boiling water, might be used. That was my first of many purchases
What can you purchase in Blooming Marvellous?
Pregnancy Clothes: I found this too late, my son was born so I can not really comment on the quality and fit of the clothes but they do seem to carry a large range. I am going to try them next time if there ever is a next time.
Infant Clothes: They stock some toddler and infant clothes but not a whole lot. I have bought things from there. I bought PJ's for my son which were of washing, expense, but quite good wearing no bobbles after a lot. The items of clothing I did find they had a wide selection of and were great at, was swim wear. I purchased swim suits and my son trunks with flotation devices that were fitted you may adjust as needed. Additionally they do all and neoprene trunks.
Toys: They've a choice of baby toys great quality but expense no where as wide-ranging as the likes of Mothercare and Toys r us. They do have great sandpits and out door toys but they're a bit expensive but great quality.
Furniture: The inventory nursery bedding and furniture as well as furniture for young children like starter and bunk beds. They also stock lots of storage furniture for kids.
Gadgets and Equipment; This is where Blooming Marvellous actually excel. The have all sorts of great equipment some of which I have seen in other places and some I haven't seen anywhere else.
Stair gates: These are not unique you can find them anywhere I hear you saying, yes you can. But all the gates you can buy just a little wider and ever search for a typical door width. I needed a gate that would fit over the bottom of my stairs to stop my very active son climbing the. It ceased the stairs climbing and was exceptional.
Weaning baths.: Like a large ice tray of individual tubs perfect size for a baby, so you could make fresh puree and freezing.
Buggy weights: Weights that go round the front wheels of your buggy so when you take your kid out the buggy does not tip up if you have bags.
I could keep going on the gadgets but hopefully you're all having the sort of things they sell. Check out there site to see more.
How Can You Purchase:
Stores: They possess some stores these are small and do not stock there range. They stores they have are in these regions:
Internet: They have an extremely good an easy to use site which I have done most of my purchasing through. The delivery is very rapid.
All there products on line although you can.
Mail Order: Additionally they send out catalogues that you may order from by phone. I've never done this as I find it just easier to work with the internet.
They as have a sister website called Mini Marvels that you can get through there primary site.
I believe Blooming Marvellous is great I have purchased many items from there which aren't dispensable but have made my life simpler and more relaxing allowing me to enjoy the time.
This is a review of the Blooming Marvellous Maternity Wrap Around Nursing Top that I bought in grey whilst pregnant (towards the end) with a view to wearing it when out and about nursing the baby. I also bought the same top in black which I have actually worn far more than the grey version.
The top is nice and long on the body, with super stretchy material and will suit either before or after the baby is born. It has a cross over style top with a false panel in between that helps with discretion whilst nursing (although I haven't really figured out how this works on me as I find it easier to lift up my top than work around secret panels. I just add a blanket over the baby once she is fixed on and hide any flashing body parts this way!.
I like the style of this top. It is super flattering and looks lovely on even me. The only problem I have is with the colour. If you have a leaky milk mishap on grey marl it will look really obvious whilst you will get away with it with the black version. I do use breast pads in my bra but sometimes they shift about and I end up with no protection there.
Price and sizes
The top is very reasonably priced at £14. For some reason I always thought that the Blooming Marvellous range was expensive so never really looked in to it but wish I had more now. The top is available in sizes 8 to 18.
I love this top but am scared to wear it outside the home because of the colour. I much prefer it in the black rather than grey but have been impressed with the quality of the top and how well it washes with no ironing required!
