Mamas&Papas Armadillo Flip XT review

The Mamas&Papas Armadillo Flip XT is one of those special pushchairs that can and will be the only pushchair you need from birth to when the child's walking independently. Many pushchairs promise to do that but fail for different reasons. I've used The Mamas&Papas Armadillo Flip XT with  my 11 weeks old and my 3,5 year old and it was absolutely brilliant. The pushchair features a true lie flat seat that can also go bolt upright for an older toddler. The seat is also massive, one of the biggest I've seen on a parent facing pushchair. The harness also accommodates newborns and toddlers with ease. The canopy is truly impressive and has a peek-a-boo window. Add the huge easy to access shopping basket, comfortable leather covered adjustable handle and ONE HAND fold and you start wondering why it's taken this long to make this beauty :)
The Mamas&Papas Armadillo Flip XT and it's sister Armadillo Flip are absolutely spot on. The XT version has an adjustable handle and bigger wheels, they're still solid though and I have to say that being a fan of off-road pushchair I did miss a bit of suspension when pushing The Mamas&Papas Armadillo Flip XT on our uneven pavements but it's a very small price to pay.

Have a look at all the photos to see the fold and the seat parent and forward facing in reclined and upright positions.

Isn't it gorgeous! I cannot wait to see the new PRIAM for myself!

And second part of the news... The new CloudQ infant car seat!

Main features:

- fully reclining seat outside the car
- 11 positions height adjustable headrest
- integrated extra large canopy
- Linear Side Impact Protection
- energy absorbing shell
- optional ISOFIX base.

The CYBEX CloudQ looks stunning in real life too as I had a chance to see it. The recline feature is very easy to use. The whole seat is made with such amazing detail (like the Sirona we had here for a review) and is one of the safest around. I only wish the CloudQ came out last year before our baby was born.

Faye & Lou's Breastfeeding Butterfly

The Faye&Lou Breastfeeding Butterfly is an incredibly stylish breastfeeding cover. 
The new version can be worn in 2 ways to provide mums with great coverage when feeding their babies. What's even better it also can be worn when you're expressing. I know how hard it was for me when I was exclusively expressing for 6 months with my first baby and I wish I had the Breastfeeding Butterfly to help with that.
The Breastfeeding Butterfly is made of 100% cotton and has a gorgeous print on it. As with all Faye&Lou products it's amazing. The Breastfeeding Butterfly even comes with its own pouch so you can always have it neatly folded in your changing bag. 
This is an absolute must have for all breastfeeding and expressing mums. 

You can buy yours here:

Faye&Lou have very kindly sent the Butterfly to me. All opinions are as always my own.
