We bought cole the ball table from ELC for his birthday- this one here
He absolutely loves it.
He also got the mothercare smart trekker (I think its called) bike - not the smart trike - this one is suitable from age 1 - 5 or so. He loves it too!!
Out of all the birthday/christmas presents, i think those two are the favourites as well as the boots busy baby box

We got Lexi (1 on 24th Feb) the Fisher Price Sing and Learn Chair for christmas and she loves it, I would definately recommed this, she sits on the chair babbling away swinging her legs to the tunes, so cute! We also got her the Zebra Bounce and Spin but she is a wee bit too small for it yet, prob as it is for 12mts+, I could not wait to get her it lol !

My dd has one, she got one for Christmas, shes 17months. We like it, but I think its a lot of money for what it is. She has a rocking bear and other ride along toys that shes loves just as much. Kia that table looks like great fun, wish I had room for one, but with all dds toys and a new baby on the way theres not much room in my house lol. She also has the smart trike, and there brilliant!! x x

Charlotte was 1 on Tuesday. We bought her a Harvey rocking horse from Mamas & Papas. Unfortunately she wont sit on it yet I don't think she's sure exactly what it is! Hopefully she'll get used to it soon. I've heard good things about that zebra spin toy, sounds like a good idea to me.

Aw glad to have helped
Cole loves balls too which is why we bought it. The bits come off easy too for taking out all the stuff that isn't meant to go in there! lol! Hope she likes it, and happy birthday to Daisy
hayls - if it helps, the legs go on pretty easily so you could always take them off to store it.
For us..definately well worth the money

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
