Welcome to my blog! I started my blog to let you in on a little bit of my life. My life as me, as a mumma, as a Coeliac and my product reviews.

Review: Baby Black & Supernatural Kids Clothing


A lovely local little company set up and run by Jenny. They specialise in black baby grows, black sleepsuits and black playsuits – all ethically produced from soft GOTS certified organic cotton jersey. Blackwear for baby's and toddlers.

Aware that black isn't for everyone, Jenny sent me a medium sized black baby grow for Séraphine to try.
My first reaction was that it looked super smart, very soft to touch and a rather fitted shape. Beautifully packaged with tissue paper and ribbon, a lovely little ethical magazine for Lydia to read and the tags telling you more about the product origins etc...



 




















The crossover neckline reminds me of a ballerina, very cute. Also available in envelope neckline if preferred.
I managed to get it on my chunky baby, 9.5mths old at the time, however as soon as she moved the poppers came undone as she was just to chunky for the fit of it. She definitely needs a large!
So... I sent it to my diddy god son to review for us.




Teamed with the white cord from his dressing-gown and a TV remote, he was transformed into a ninja!
Both Silas and his mummy were very impressed with the quality, fit and feel of the suit. Silas always suits darker colours, so Baby Black it the brand for him!
 
I find the price to be rather expensive for just one suit, £18 each. I know you pay for what you get with the quality of excellent material that's ethically sourced. However baby's grow so quickly that i wonder how much value for money you'd get out of it? Definitely consider buying as a one off special gift.
At the moment you can get up to 20% off at the Sussex baby and toddler show, see the Baby Black website for more information.
 
 
Supernatural Kids Clothing
 
The sister company to Baby Black, offering older children the same ethical choice in quality clothing.
Aimed at 1-5yr olds the Organic Cotton and Modal fabrics are designed to last the rough and tumble lifestyle of active children.
 
With a cartoon superhero called Natty it really involves the kids, encouraging their interest and knowledge in nature and ethical clothing.
 
Jenny sent an age 2-3 raspberry pink/black hoodie dress, for Lydia to try.
Lydia was so excited about a dress with a hood that she instantly stripped off to put it on! Lydia is a tallish, fussy 2.5yr old that knows what she likes.
 
 


Again, it was really soft to touch. You can feel the quality.
Lydia found the wrist cuffs rather tight, she couldn't push the sleeves up her arm to 3/4 them. She also disliked how open the neckline was, she asked for a top to wear underneath so her "boobies" weren't showing.... Hahaha.
Another thing i noticed about it is that the crossover panel is visible and curls up underneath the top layer of fabric. This was slightly irritating Lydia's tummy before she put a top on underneath it.
Throughout the day of her wearing it she was constantly adjusting the neckline, as it kept slipping off alternate shoulders. I think it neckline could have a few extra stitches in it so its not as gaping wide, alternatively just go for the envelope neckline option.

The dress is fab to team with leggings, jeggings or jeans.
Co-ordinating leggings are also available to purchase from Supernatural Kids.
I got Lydia to try some of her leggings on with the dress...


 
 
A lovely versatile item for all seasons that's currently at a bargain price of £15, usually £29.
The mid-season sale at Supernatural Kids Clothing has made most items 1/2 price!!!
Snap yours up today, add some leggings in with it to and you've got your funky girl an outfit.
Boyswear is also available to buy.
