Swot up on all things pregnancy dressing – from nursing staples to bump support – enjoy a one-to-one consultation with a JoJo Maman Bebe expert and leave with a (jam-packed) mama-to-be goodie bag. Sign me up, I hear!

There’s no denying that JoJo Maman Bebe’s a bit of a mama haven when it comes to snagging the best, innovative products for family life. Whether maternity bras for me, sleepsuits for Hector or toys and nursery buys, there’s always something at JoJo that makes me stop and take notice. They are pros at editing a collection of products you won’t see everywhere else and are able to catch my attention in a didn’t-know-I-needed-that kind of way.

Now I’m well into my second pregnancy, it’s full steam ahead stocking up on maternity items and newborn essentials, so when I was invited into store to try out the JoJo Maman Bebe Maternity VIP Shopping experience I knew there would be everything I need to get newborn-ready. I’m here to pass on some of the benefits of booking in for an appointment yourself – including an exclusive JoJo Maman Bebe discount, amazing goodie bag, maternity bra fit and more.

From now right up until November mamas-to-be are invited to join the JoJo Maman Bebe Maternity VIP Shopping Event. You can book in store now or book here to secure your spot at selected stores and benefit from a maternity bra fitting and expert advice on pregnancy and nursing must-haves. Plus there’s product demonstrations and a special JoJo Maman Bebe Discount of 15% off maternity and nursing items during your in store appointment. You’ll walk away with a goody bag (with purchase, while stocks last) and it’s the perfect chance to head in store to try on any pieces you’ve had your eye on. Want to find out if that nursing bra you spied on Instagram really is as soft in real life? This is the time to do it! You’ll leave your appointment feeling all-round mum-to-be organised and able to tick off some of the ‘to buys’ burning away at your new baby shopping list.

So what did I pick up at my appointment? I guess you spied the dungarees! I headed into the Kingston store with them in my sights although was fully aware that dungarees can easily look like an ill-fitting boilersuit if not carefully executed. What was I even worrying about because the moment I slipped into JoJo Maman Bebe’s black maternity dungarees I felt an instant spring in my step. First of all, they’re comfy. No rigid, restrictive denim here, only super soft and stretchy cotton, with all the utilitarian and practical charm we’ve come to expect from a dungaree. There’s pockets, straps and adjustable buttons on both sides allowing for bump growth spurts. I always have to roll up my denim a bit and like that look but you could have them altered if you’re on the shorter side, they look great with my Vans Old Skool’s or slides, comfy tees and cute blouses underneath.

When I visited my local store there’d been a big drop of new Autumn/Winter 2018 product and the colour palette was really spot on for the cosy season. I have my eye on a khaki 2-in-1 padded parker coat with a faux fur hood for the chillier weather and in the meantime, the selection of striped tops jumped out at me for their goes-with-everything autumn potential. Suitable for nine months of pregnancy and beyond, I went for the grey drop shoulder maternity and nursing top that’s cleverly cut so it’s long and roomy enough for bump-coverage now, with buttoned shoulder access ensuring it’s also nursing-friendly once baby arrives. I tried on a few nursing bras, specifically needing something ideal for sleeping in. Right now I’m avoiding drop down bras because I know I’ll be living in them when baby comes along and instead found a gem in JoJo’s pull on cotton crossover front sleep bras. Just enough support to be able to wear under relaxed t-shirts during the daytime and the crossover nursing access is perfect for night feeds and my hospital stay too.

Pocket dinosaurs, £15 JoJo Maman Bebe Fox slipper socks, £10 JoJo Maman Bebe Pocket dinosaurs and fox slipper socks kindly gifted by JoJo Maman Bebe

I can’t remember an occasion when I stepped into a JoJo store without leaving with something for Hector or a friend who’s having a baby. Case in point these beautiful wooden pocket dinosaurs and toasty fox slipper socks. Small, packable toys like these are always a win because you can grab a handful for the changing bag or suitcase when you’re out and about and travelling. Hector loves anything with lots of different pieces and these are just beautiful. They come in a cute box with a handle too, which he loves carrying around the house! The slipper socks were a great find because they’ve got a special non-slip sole, perfect for wooden floors and tiles. Plus he can’t pull them off easily meaning warm feet for longer and there’s matching fox PJ’s. (Going on his Christmas list!)

Back to that goody bag you’ll receive when you head in store for a VIP appointment (with purchase, while stocks last). Want to know what’s inside? Of course you do! To start, let’s just appreciate the purple bag, perfect for all of your mama belongings, it cleverly clips onto the handlebar of your pram with press stud straps. Inside there’s a JoJo Maman Bebe red spotty changing mat with compartments for nappies and wipes. A reusable Pukka tea/coffee cup and Pukka Motherkind teabags – the morning coffee run, sorted! Mum balms from Mama Mio, Neal’s Yard and Bloom and Blossom to tackle the stretch marks and any pregnancy skin woes. You’ll also get a handy JoJo booklet with loads of mum-to-be info including a hospital bag checklist and bra bible. How good is this goody bag guys? Don’t miss your chance to own one and grab an exclusive JoJo Maman Bebe discount – Book now.
