{Baby & Toddler Winter Wardrobe}

I was kindly invited to the exclusive #VIPmums preview event at the new Mothercare Coatbridge store a few weeks ago. I normally visit the East Kilbride Mothercare, and for those of you that know the EK store will understand how difficult it can be to navigate and the small ELC is jam packed and you can't get a pram round very easily. It can also be difficult to get a member of staff to help you.

Well, the Coatbridge store is lovely.  It's bright, airy and there is lots of room. There is also a central help desk - this will hopefully save you having to hang around in the hope that you catch a salesperson's attention. The fitting room is spacious - lots of room to take in a pram - and there is also a parents area. The big plus point to me is the large ELC. There is space for the little ones to try out the toys and the staff are engaging and helpful.

Here are some of the pics provided to me by the store:

Whilst I was there I found the perfect hat for my son. I had been looking for something like this as I had seen one in House of Fraser but it was black and I ideally wanted a navy one so it would match his jacket & waterproof gear. It's super cosy and looks so cute!

Boys Navy Trapper, Mothercare

Here's a lowdown on the rest of our winter gear:

Regatta pack-away waterproof jacket (gift from Granddad & Nanny Jo)

Waterproof dungarees, Jojo Maman Bebe

Parka Jacket from Next (gift from Uncle Tom & Auntie Fi) - this is a year old now and despite being worn loads it's still going strong and still fits well.

My daughter also has her winter gear sorted....

Wallaboo Footmuff (picture is from when she was a tiny newborn but we still use it)

Bear All-in-one, Asda (was a gift from Auntie Ali & Uncle Chris for my son)

As I said, the ELC at the new Mothercare Coatbridge store is brilliant - I was very impressed. They also stock Schleich plastic animals and I bought my son a horse and sheep to join the pig and cow that he already owns. They're brilliant and my son loves to role play with the animals at all opportunities! Plus lots of singing of 'Old Macdonald'...!!

If you're nearby then I'd definitely recommend a trip to the store. There are also some really good bargains on at the minute in the ELC... snap them up whilst you can. This wooden construction train set is currently half price. We love traditional wooden toys in our house!
