Yezz, It Really Is That Small, Swift And Compact!

Open your mind, charter new urban territories or go where you have gone before but with greater ease.

The new Quinny Yezz, suitable from six months, is like nothing you have seen before. Forget what you know about other lightweight buggies and be free to absorb what the Quinny Yezz has to offer the dynamic city parent.

If you are a frequent traveller by public transport then this buggy is going to blow you away. A buggy isn’t just useful for a quick outing to the shops with your little one because it’s lightweight and more compact for the shopping aisles; it’s a way of life of some parents, especially those living in the city. 

The need to get from A to B quickly and as efficiently as possible makes a super lightweight compact buggy an essential piece of equipment. If you find yourself speeding around the city, jumping on and off buses and sometimes wish you could tackle the underground with a buggy and babe in arms then the Quinny Yezz is the buggy for you.

Weighing just five kilograms the Quinny Yezz can be flung over the shoulder in one simple movement. With three simple actions the buggy is collapsed and clicked into place ready to be grabbed by the comfortable carrying strap. Off at the other end, release and shake out the buggy, lock into place, and you are both ready to get going again. All this can be done while holding your baby and your handbag.

The Quinny Yezz is also great for taking on holiday as it’s so small and compact. Place it effortlessly in the boot of a car leaving lots of room for everything and the kitchen sink; or take it abroad as it will not add much to the baggage allowance. The Quinny Yezz seat has been designed with a slight angle to keep napping children comfortable for hours.

The Quinny Yezz is made from a high performance glass fibre material called IXEF® which gives it a strong yet super lightweight frame. The fabric used for the buggy’s seat and hood is made from material similar to paraglider fabric which is light, very strong and comfortable. The wheels on the Quinny Yezz are skating wheels which makes it responsive and easy to manoeuvre with a smooth ride. This robust combination all creatively held in place with pre-stretched climbing rope is enough to excite even the toughest extreme sport enthusiast.

The Quinny Yezz is available in an explosion of colours that are striking and bright. Suit your mood - Grey Road, for a classic chic look; Blue Track, an electric blue; Red Signal, sure to stop and turn heads; Pink Hybrid, for all those girly girls; Green Curve is a beautiful emerald green and Yellow Move, is bright and bold.

Earn £5 M&S Vouchers this half term, by doing something good!

GYKO
 turn 5 items into £5 at M&S
As any parent will tell you, they always seem to have items that their children have outgrown or no longer need that they would like to see go to a good home. Now parents can turn their kid's unwanted items into a £5 M&S voucher.

The new community based website www.mygyko.com which enables parents to sell, swap or giveaway to other parents is offering a £5 M&S voucher when they list 5 items on the site by the 31st October.

The ethos behind the GYKO site is to build on existing local community spirit. The site provides parents with a simple easy to use, safe and friendly way of trading the items their children have now outgrown with other families living in their area.

What is unique about the website is that it puts parents with children at the same school, sports club or uniformed organisation(s) in touch with one another and allows them to buy, sell, swap or give away items.

The GYKO site enables the informal school gate agreements that often exist between small circles of friends to be widened up to a larger community.

By conducting transactions via the school and sports club you don’t have to advertise your address to strangers who then collect items from your home. Nor do you have to incur postage charges.
Parents who are looking for ways to earn some extra cash will find this an ideal place to sell outgrown uniforms and sport kits that are filling up their cupboards and garages.

With the added incentive of earning a £5 voucher for listings made by the end of October, this half term is the perfect time for parents to de-clutter and sort out the items that their children no longer require.

The site is free to use for both the parents listing items and the parents acquiring items.

GYKO is a site that puts community and parents first as opposed to profit and commercialism – something that can only be beneficial to everyone.

Little Terra Backs Vaude and Bush Baby Child Carriers

Child Back Carrier from Little Terra
A good child carrier provides young people with a comfortable ride and a bird’s eye view – and the user with a comfortable way of carrying their precious load.

Both the Bush Baby and Vaude Baby Carrier ranges are stocked by the children’s retailer Little Terra.

Carolyn Budding, who is the managing director of Little Terra, has hand-picked both premium brands due to the wide range of models they offer, providing a choice of options for buyers and an advanced level of adjustment to make both child and carrier comfortable.

With years of experience transporting children in these types of carriers, Carolyn, as with every item stocked by Little Terra, has used her own experience as both a specialist buyer and a mother of two to ensure products are more than capable of meeting the demands of modern families.

Carolyn said: “Child carriers are suitable for children from around six months of age and offer a more versatile means of getting around, where pushchairs could struggle to handle the terrain, or are difficult to manoevre such as around busy city centres.”

Little Terra has produced a free downloadable guide to help parents make an informed choice when selecting a back carrier.

Available online at http://www.littleterra.co.uk/Advice_and_FAQ/Child_Back_Carri... the guide is packed with information, including fitting, frame construction, weight considerations and accessories.

The north’s first specialist independent baby clinic opens in Yorkshire this month

Based at the renowned Good Health centre in Roundhay, Leeds, the private clinic is run by Milk Matters, an organisation specialising in solving early parenting problems such as distressed babies and babies with feeding or sleeping problems.

Charlotte Young, 33, from Halifax, who runs Milk Matters, has been working with mums and babies to help solve their problems since 2003.

Charlotte, who also writes popular parenting blog Analytical Armadillo, said: “Mums come to us when they are at the end of their tether.

“Babies with colic or reflux, feeding problems, wind or excessive sleep disturbances can be very distressed and unsettled for long periods of time. All of this adds up to distressed parents too.

“We focus on the whole of the situation and believe that by assessing all of the possible contributory factors – mum, baby, birth and what has happened since – we can better understand, and therefore identify the problem, rather than just medicating symptoms.

“Using our keen observation skills and taking a detailed history, we can help parents understand what baby is communicating. And we’ve literally had overnight results.”

The clinic will be open to anyone who has problems from birth to one year, whether they are breast or bottle fed. It is the natural progression for Charlotte, who has spent seven years helping babies via home visits, helplines and online.

Charlotte is a certified breastfeeding counsellor who has undertaken extensive further training to specialise, and will be joined at the clinic by other practitioners if the case demands. This includes Independent Lactation Consultant Ann Dobson, a well-known specialist in treating tongue tie.

Lucie Biddle , 32, from Liversedge, is just one of the mums helped by Milk Matters. Lucie said: “Louie is my third child and he was seven months old when I contacted Milk Matters back in July.

“He was not only a very frequent feeder but would also get very distressed. He would wriggle, squirm, writhe, arch his back and fight me until finally becoming so distressed and hysterical that I had to stop feeding and cuddle him until he calmed down.

"He would be sick so much after each feed that I had to cover us both with a bath towel. But because he was gaining weight, the health visitor and doctor didn’t seem concerned; he prescribed Gaviscon for reflux and we were sent on our way.

“He was never settled, crying so hard while trying to feed that he often stopped breathing for a moment. He never slept for more than a couple of hours at a time and would have several screaming fits each night.

“After trying an osteopath, raising the mattress and all the usual tips given for reflux, I turned in desperation to the internet and found an article by Milk Matters. I contacted Charlotte on a Friday and she came over the same day; even though it was a bank holiday, Charlotte booked us in for a further appointment on the Monday.

“The affect on Louis was instant. He slept twelve hours that night and is now sleeping well during the day. We have no hysterical screaming fits at all. I can’t believe how we managed for so long.”
