Educational Play with Schleich I'm a big fan of learning through play. Unforced educational play. I'm not a teacher and I don't want to be. I want my children to naturally learn whilst they are having fun. When I was contacted recently...

Hipp Organic Coffee Morning, Brighton

 As a member of the HiPP Organic Baby Club, and someone who has used their formula since my little one was born, I was very excited when they announced a coffee morning was being held at the Debenhams cafe in Brighton.  It was advertised as being an interesting and informative event:

"Our midwife and nutritionist are going to be giving short talks on topics like baby sleep patterns and the best nutrition for a new mum.
If you’re interested in coming along and asking their advice over a free cup of tea or coffee, as well as picking up a few HiPP goodies and the chance to win even more in our competitions, come along and see us."

Sadly this wasn’t the case.

For some inexplicable reason the staff of the Debenhams cafe had decided the best place to locate the numerous mums and their babies in buggies was up a, albeit short, set of steps – thankfully I’d taken Grandma along who helped hoist the pram up! We did get our free cup of tea, though sadly I’m not convinced it was ever particularly hot.  When the midwife eventually turned up – sadly late – she spoke for about three minutes on the importance of sleep, before dishing out goodie bags which contained items all members of the Baby Club would already have received directly, and then the event seemed to end!

A disappointing trip out I’m afraid, and not one that I imagine did any favours to HiPP.  That being said I continue to be a huge fan of their formula and their range of foods which my little one enjoys as well.  Luckily for HiPP I was already a fan before I attended, otherwise I may have looked elsewhere for my babies needs. 

Better luck next time HiPP.
