We’ve Bought More UK Made Baby Stuff!

Picture of Avent Breast Milk and Food ContainersI was a little over excited today when I was in Mothercare! I wasn’t intending on buying anything but they had a 3 for 2 offer.

I had been to Next to pick up a nursery light shade we had ordered but it had not arrived at the store, which was annoying as I’d made the trip into Coventry just to pick it up! So feeling cheated out of a purchase, I was keen to find something in Mothercare that was made in the UK that I could buy!

Picture of Avent Newborn Starter Bottle SetI remembered Avent have a large manufacturing factory in Suffolk, England and I had seen a box of Avent Breast Milk Containers that I thought we probably needed. Then I found they had the Avent Newborn Starter Bottle Set (£25.54) and Electric Bottle Warmer (£39.99) we had on our list to buy. I realised I could get the Breast Milk Containers (£8.49) for free on their 3 for 2 offer. I checked the boxes and found a lovely “Made in the UK” label on them all.

He found that we were going to buy the Newborn Starter Bottle Set for only £12.99 and the Electric Bottle Warmer for only £15.65 from a local, independent retailer, Kiddisave. So even with Mothercare’s 3 for 2 offer we would be massively over paying for these items, so back on the shelf they went!

I bought the Baby Bath (14.99) and the Top ‘n’ Tail Bowl (£6.99) with the Breast Milk Containers (£8.49). So I got the Top ‘n’ Tail Bowl free on their 3 for 2 offer.

So we bought 5 items today that are made in the UK and 1 item made in the Netherlands. Quite an achievement I think!
