    Swaddling seems to be a buzzword at the moment, but it isn’t a new tradition in fact it’s centuries old.

    So today marks River’s 7 month ‘birthday’. Our sixth month together has been one of highs, lows and mostly… play time! Our little lady is learning new tricks by the day, just this week mastering raspberry blowing, head shaking and pushing herself up onto all fours.
