I had hoped that there would be no part 3 to this saga but sadly the message still doesn’t seem to have seeped through and disappointingly Costa Coffee seem to have decided to no longer respond to my emails advising them when I have been refused hot water for Grumpy Baby’s bottle, against their own policy. In the most recent incident, the Grumpy Family re-visited the branch that started it all at Green Bridge, Swindon. Previously the manager of this branch had been quite rude to me regarding my request for hot water, so we entered hopeful that the message […]

If you haven’t already, you can read my previous post about Costa stores and their confused stance on providing hot water to their customers for the purpose of warming babies bottles HERE. So, following on from my most recent run in with a Costa store informing me that they can’t give me any hot water, I have received the following email from the customer service team manager in the Brand and Social department. Thank you for your email. I will be picking up with the Area Manager again today. I can confirm this information is contained in our brand standards […]

Review: The Original GroBag baby sleeping bag

Close up of the Starlight and Apple fabric design.

About the original GroBag baby sleeping bag Despite the name we are not talking about bags of dirt to grow your tomatoes in. GroBags and other baby sleeping bags are an alternative to blankets for babies and small children.

Welcome to Grumpy Mum Reviews

Grumpy Mum & Grumpy Baby

Hello and welcome to Grumpy Mum Reviews! So, what’s this blog all about? Well, at the end of 2015 Grumpy dad and I decided that we weren’t confused, tired and broke enough, so we had better have a baby… Two months later the illusive second line showed up on a test and from that point on I was absolutely baffled by how many products there were out there for new and prospective mothers and babies. Working out which products were essential and which were just money down the drain was a nightmare and as a result I ended up wasting […]
