This week, leading child safety brand, BRITAX is proud to launch a Royal themed fundraising drive for the special baby care charity, Bliss. They are offering parents and parents-to-be the chance to own a car seat fit for a King!
Just 150 units of the Britax BABY SAFE plus SHR II car seat have been created in the exact same limited edition fabric design that HRH Prince George was seen in leaving the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in. These seats will go on sale for £129.99 to the public with all proceeds being donated to the charity.
Bliss is a UK charity working to provide the best possible care and support for all premature and sick babies and their families. One in every 9 babies is born premature or sick – that is around 80,000 babies every year – with one being admitted to special care every six minutes.
Bengi Bingol Yalcin, UK Marketing Manager at BRITAX remarks, ‘Everyone here at BRITAX was delighted to see that the Duke and Duchess had selected a BRITAX seat to carry the future King home – and we’ve certainly seen an increase in demand for the BABY SAFE range ever since. Of course, our ongoing support of the Bliss charity is hugely important to us and so, we have re-released the very same fabric design cover on George’s seat to help raise money for the charity. This cover is no longer available to purchase from retailers, so we’re offering parents a unique opportunity to buy one whilst also supporting a fantastic cause.”
150 limited edition Baby Safe car seats in the Felix fabric will be available for purchase for £129.99 via our website.
Mother's Day this year has taken on a new meaning for me. On Monday, just before he went to bed, Thomas called me 'Mummy' for the first time. He is 16 months old. He like most children said 'dada' first at around six months old and a few months later, the odd 'mama' started coming out too. I have been encouraging him to say 'mummy' since.
This is my second Mother's Day. I always thought my first ever Mother's Day would be most significant but actually I think it is going to be this one. Thomas now knows who I am and that I will come and help/cuddle/support him whenever he needs me too.
Since becoming a Mummy, I have changed for the better. I appreciate the small things in life now. I have enjoyed every moment with Thomas from the first smile, the first tooth, first food, first steps, and even managed to enjoy the (horrendous) first haircut experience! Thomas is changing every day now at an alarming fast rate and I am enjoying every second of it.
This Mother's Day and every other day for that matter, I will get to cuddle and kiss my son and tell him how much he means to me. Some other Mummy's like Jennie from Edspire are not able to do that anymore with their child as they are shining stars in heaven looking down on us all. Because of this, I urge you this Mother's Day to enjoy being a mummy, enjoy being with your children and remember those Mummy's who are less fortunate than ourselves.
To donate to the Bliss fund in memory of Jennie's daughter, Matilda Mae please see here.
Last week, the parent blogging community was shocked when Jennie of Edspire announced that her girl Matilda Mae had died in her sleep at 9 months old. I have never met Jennie but have followed her blog for a while. I have been thinking all week about writing a post about it but I have been struggling to find the right words to say. I am still struggling with what to say but I just wanted to let Jennie and her family know that they are in my thoughts constantly. I just want to give them all a hug and take the pain away. Other bloggers including Jennie herself have been able to beautifully word tributes for Matilda Mae. I do not have the way with words which they do but I would like to encourage everyone to donate some money to Bliss who are a charity for premature and poorly babies, which is a charity close to Jennie's heart.
Rest In Peace Matilda Mae – You are the brightest star in the sky xxx
