Nonabox – September

Nonabox is a company that I’ve only recently discovered. For £24.95 a month, including delivery, the company will send you a monthly box with products tailored to you and your bump/ child. Anyone that knows me well knows how much I love surprise gifts and trying new things out. As a result I was very excited when Nonabox sent me some boxes to show me what they were all about!


Now firstly I have to apologise for my Nonabox reviews being super, super late. A newborn and severe internet issues do not make a good combination! On the plus side I’ve had bags of time to receive and enjoy these lovely products!

I was very excited to receive my first Nonabox. The presentation box is gorgeous and makes you want to dive inside.

Here’s what I received:

Snooze Baby – Sweet Dreaming Natural Brown. This is a furry comfort toy with labels attached for babies to explore. O seems to really enjoy the soft material and is curious about the labels. I love this gift idea and think it would make a wonderful present, especially for a baby shower.

Paper Shaker – Postcard. Included was a mock up birth announcement card and money off should you decide to purchase. This was OK, was nice to see the options out there but not something I would personally pursue.

MAM – Feeding Spoons.  These may be simple but I loved these. These spoons made for the perfect travel companion as they come with travel lids.

Green People – Toothpaste. I was a bit sceptical about this certified organic toothpaste as it contained no Flouride! However after putting it to the test and doing some sneaky research I was pretty impressed. Little man loved it too!

Ella’s Kitchen – Blueberry and Pear Baby Brekkie/ Carrots, Peas and Pears.  I’m a massive fan of Ella’s kitchen and was great to receive these to try. I’ve put these aside for O but unfortunately Little Man has already nabbed the Baby Brekkie for himself!

Shea Mooti – Mama’s everything body balm. This was very luxurious and I love that Nonabox thinks of mums too! This product smells like you’re in a luxury spa and feels great… especially on my neglected mummy skin!

Nonabox contents

I worked out the approximate value of the box to be £33. I really liked the fact that baby, toddler and I are all thought of with the contents of the box. Looking forward to next month!

I was sent a selection of products for the purpose of review – all opinions are my own and honest.

MAM – Learn to Drink Cup

I’ll never forget the first time I saw a MAM bottle. What struck me straightaway was how pretty they were. Usually ‘first’ bottles seem to be very boring and practical, whilst these were colourful and had lovely designs on them.






I had by that point invested in baby bottles, sterilisers and such like, so didn’t have the need to get any more. However, I was keen to hear what other people thought of them, which always seemed to be very positive.

I was sent the MAM Learn to Drink 190ml cup to review. The cup has the very handy options of ‘free flow’ or ‘non spill’ all the with the help of a removable attachment.

At 19 months Jacob still has one bottle of milk in the evening after his dinner and before bed. We plan to wean him off this in the very near future but for now it’s a comfort to him and a  great way of topping up his calcium. We have tried to move him on to beakers and whilst this has worked with water since he was six months old he has remained very stubborn with his beloved milk. This is where I have found the MAM cup to be amazing. Out of curiosity one evening I gave him his milk in this cup and he drank it as normal… something that has never happened before (normally it ends up with him screaming, throwing said cup and refusing to drink from it). I tried it the next night to make sure the previous night wasn’t a fluke and he drank it again. I believe this is very much to do with the cup looking like a baby bottle and having a softish spout. All I can say is I wish that we had discovered this cup sooner as it would have proved very useful, something to bear in mind for next time maybe?









I think this product is great and only have two minor quibbles. Firstly within 10 minutes of drinking from the bottle there were already little teeth marks in the spout. Not necessarily a problem as such, as one would expect a certain amount of wear and tear when there is a soft spout, but did make me wonder how long this would hold up against my little terror. Secondly it is a shame there is no measurement guide against the side. This isn’t the end of the world as most sippy cups don’t but it would be nice.

Those little niggles aside I would highly recommend this cup, especially as a transitional ‘bottle to cup’ product. The cup retails at £5.99, which I believe it good value, and extras such as handles also fit this product so it is easy to mix and match.
