Instagram Influencer Daywithdad reveals his top buys for parents…

Warren is a married father of two boys, Farley and Bligh. After working for Aston Martin since leaving school, he left the automotive industry not long ago to focus on being a full-time stay-at-home dad in his hometown of Royal Leamington Spa. Along with his wife, he also recently fully renovated their 1920s house.

He established Daywithdad after his first son Farley was born in November, 2016, and has since built up a solid 17k followers on Instagram. It was set up to capture family moments in photo form, they love to travel for example, and share with like-minded parents. 

Below, Warren gives us his top buys for parents across three different categories…

Out and about

Maxi-Cosi Dana double stroller

We go everywhere with our Maxi-Cosi double stroller. It’s been with us on day trips in the UK, camper van holidays and came all the way to the Maldives with us this November. I have had a few double strollers but not one has been as well built and reliable as the Dana for two. My boys love being side by side on days out and they will happily fall asleep in it, the fully reclining feature makes it ideal for a little sleepy hideaway. 

Thule Yepp Bike Seats

I have to mention these awesome child bike seats by Swedish outdoor brand Thule. I have a front mounted and rear mounted fixed to my urban bike. My boys are one and three and they love being out with me and Kate. It has become a regular weekend hobby and to be honest this is now my best form of exercise! 


Mini Rodini

Our favourite brand I love to dress our boys in has to be Swedish children’s wear, Mini Rodini. Their designs are fun created by an illustrator and my boys love to wear them. We like to twin dress them and the Mini Rodini brand always catches to attention of passersby.

Essentials for nailing parenthood

Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper

Here’s Bligh rigged up in his 3-in-1 Rocker Napper from @tinyloveglobal and his Ewan the dream sheep deluxe from @ewanthedreamsheep. This is the only way this little sausage roll will be put down without kicking off – swaddled, Ewan singing in his ear and his fav chair. Cracked it!

The amazing rocker easily converts from a bassinet to a fun-filled rocker in just one easy click. Suitable from birth to six months, it’s lightweight and portable, meaning it’s your perfect take away companion to keep baby entertained. Designed to meet Tiny Love’s seven developmental wonders, the rocker also enhances those important milestones by engaging the senses, boosting emotional intelligence and promoting fine motor skills.

Aqua Wipes

We’ve recently discovered these amazing wipes and we love them because they are plastic free, 100 per cent biodegradable, and vegan friendly. These were specially created for delicate newborn skin and they are strong too! |
