The Solvej Swing and Purebaby
I have the Solvej swing on my list of must haves! Although there aren’t a lot of differences between any one swing, I can’t go past how beautiful and durable it is. That and it’s shelf life far exceeds that of any other swing I’ve come across, 6months to 6years. The cheaper alternative, which really seems to be just as good, is the Baby KEA Swing. In comparison this swing will last from 6months to 36months - still, a decent amount of time. It is also only made in one colour - forest green, as opposed to the Solvej Swing which is made in six. I suppose the final purchase will come down to personal preference as there isn’t much that separates the two.
When I discovered that I was pregnant with little Henry my mothers first purchase was a Purebaby blanket, a beautiful, wild bear, broadly stitched on the front. Made from organic cotton, it felt incredible. Ever since then I’ve been buying up all the Purebaby products I can get my hands on. Only ever from department stores or warehouses, because I really don’t want to have to pay full price. Now, I have a few lovely items, some towels, clothing, a swaddle, and of course, Henry’s gorgeous first baby blanket.
