Pretty Pram Accessories!

Making a decision about a pram is one of the most important moments in the lead up to meeting your baby.  With so many brands and styles to choose from, figuring out which is the one for you can often be a lengthy process! For some, finding out whether they are having a boy or a girl comes into the decision, and influences the colour of pram they buy, while for others, they prefer something neutral.  If you are planning to use the pram for more than one baby, choosing a particular colour might not be for you.

Just because you go for something neutral, however, doesn’t mean you have to stick to plain colours once your baby has arrived and you are out and about with your pram! There are lots of fantastic brands out there offering lovely pram and car seat accessories, and we’re here today to talk you through some of our favourites.

rosy-fuentes-accessories

Rosy Fuentes is one of our most popular brands for pram, pushchair and car seat accessories.  This Spanish brand creates beautiful car seat and pushchair footmuffs, pram liners and pram sets, car seat hoods and more, in a range of fabrics and colours. This year their pom pom collection (pictured above in the pale blue and white pram set) has proved to be very popular. The leatherette fabric at the bottom contrasts nicely with the soft cotton mix at the top, and the cute pompom detail is a lovely finishing touch. Rosy Fuentes also create a nice range of styles, from simple styles like the plain pink pushchair liner above, to more detailed options with ruffles, bows and ribbons. Some of their products are even reversible, giving you more than one style in one product!

pasito-a-pasito-accessories

Another popular brand from Spain, Pasito a Pasito is home to a gorgeous range of car seat and pram accessories including footmuffs, hanging bags and pram strings. The adorable pram string pictured above comes in pink, pale blue and beige, and each features a different animal. Pasito a Pasito has a wide range of car seat and pushchair footmuffs in a range of fabrics, and the classic pastel colours prove to be popular season after season.

clair-de-lune-ido-car-seat

Grey is definitely the colour of the moment when it comes to prams (see our round up of some of our favourite grey prams!) and Clair de Lune has a beautiful silver toned car seat footmuff as part of their collection. A trusted nursery brand since 1943, Clair de Lune creates pretty, affordable accessories to add to whatever pram you choose. Or, if you’re looking for something a little lighter, iDO created these cute car seat covers as part of their summer 2016 collection, to brighten up your car seat without being too heavy in the warmer weather.

We’d love to know what accessories you have been buying for your car seats and pushchairs recently – have you found something quite special? Let us know in the comments below!

Best Twitter Hashtags for Parents!

With so many people using social media on a daily basis, it can be hard to know where to even begin when you’re looking for inspiration online. Twitter is a fantastic platform for becoming part of a community, interacting with people with similar interests, and posting snippets of your day to day life, and one amazing community that attracts new members every day is the online parenting community. This can be a wonderful, supportive environment, and a place to turn for advice or inspiration at any hour of the day or night.

But where to begin when you’re first finding your feet? One of the best things about twitter, the thing that allows you to search for the people who share the same interests as you, are the hashtags. So what we want to know today is, what hashtags do you find yourself most regularly clicking on to find posts about parenting?

We made a fun little word cloud just to highlight some of the hashtags we could think of!

parent-social-media-hashtags

But what matters most is what hashtags make you want to click on a post! If you’re looking for anything parenting related, from a new outfit for your little one, to a post from someone discussing their experiences as a new parent, what are the hashtags you use the most?

Let us know in the comments down below, or tweet us at @JillysOnline with your suggestions! Not only do we want to start working them into our tweets to help you keep up to date with our new arrivals, and our latest blogposts, but it might give some other readers ideas for the next time they are on Twitter!

Thanks for reading, and we hope you’re having a lovely day!
