With the long hot days of summer stretching ahead of us Baby & Child decided to give tired mums a break, holding one of our ever popular Mummy Mornings - this time with a summer survival twist - at the adorable Sophie's Cafe in Barsha Heights. 

Watch a video of everything that went on here: 

The morning gave mums stuck in Dubai during the quiet summer months a great excuse to catch up with friends, as well as connecting with other mums who are new to the Dubai parent community.  

This was all accompanied by delicious fare served up by Sophie's Cafe, offering a combination of healthy and classic breakfast eats as the perfect start to the day. From tempting croissants to fresh, reviving smoothies, the food was enjoyed by babies and mums alike. With a ready-to-go cafe concept, Sophie's Cafe is great for both relaxed meet-ups and grabbing a quick snack as a busy mum on the run. 

As usual Malaak Mama and Baby Care had their wonderful nurses on hand to help out with the little ones, keeping them entertained whilst the mums relaxed and chatted away. 

Meanwhile Just Kidding supplied some amazing experts to talk to the mums about car safety. Long-dedicated to teaching parents about the importance of correct car seat installation, Just Kidding have been campaigning to raise awareness of how much difference it makes when you make sure you know what you're doing when strapping your child in. On the day the team were busy demonstrating car seat fitting and giving our mums the lowdown on their options when travelling with a child.  

The event was well-attended by mums at all stages of their parenting journey and we welcomed expectant mothers, newborns, toddlers and even a few older kids as well - all of whom enjoyed themselves! 

The morning was rounded off with a fun giveaway courtesy of Malaak, announced by their head maternity manager, Jo Holt. Congrats to the winner!

A huge thank you from the Baby & Child team to everyone who attended and helped make the event such a success.
