I’m sad to announce that Bump To Bundle is closing for business on 8th June 2012.
It’s been two years since we started up but no other commitments have taken over and keeping the shop up to its usual standard is becoming more difficult.
It’s a very sad time but hopefully future ventures will help to ease the sadness.
Thank you to everyone who has offered support, become a customer or even given feedback. It’s been a happy two years.
I was given a Samsung SEW-3035 baby monitor to review. This is a top of the range wireless video monitor with many features. I was also given two baby blankets to give away to my blog readers, more details about this below.
I’m usually a person who buys products which suit my needs and rarely go for top-of-the-range products, and if I’m honest I never really saw the advantages of having a video monitor. I believe I am converted now. Watching my baby sleep is an absolute pleasure and I was even able to do some recordings. I never before realised just how long he was awake before he started to move or make a noise. The first night this monitor was installed I was transfixed to the screen. The novelty did wear off, but I always felt more comforted being able to see my baby all the time.
The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to set up. The package even gives you a template to use when attaching the camera to the wall. I did not attach the camera as I wanted to test it from different positions in the room. The picture on the monitor screen was very clear. You can even view it through a computer or television, although the picture loses a little of its quality the bigger you view it.
At night the picture is black and white. We use a lamp in the bedroom but tried it with the lamp off and the room in complete darkness and couldn’t really tell the difference. During the daylight pictures are viewed in full colour. You can also zoom in on your baby for a closer look, and you can turn the on the night light on the camera by a switch on the monitor.
The Samsung SEW-3035 monitor is wireless and can be taken from room to room. It has its own handy little stand or a clip to attach it to your belt or clothing. The charge last for several hours and bleeps when the charge is running low, then you need to plug it in. The camera can also be used with batteries for complete portability.
There is a two way audio between the monitor and the camera so you can speak to your baby, sometimes a few words of comfort is all they need to help them settle back to sleep or stop the tears.
A really nice feature is the ability to record what the camera sees by a button on the monitor. You can record manually or set it to record automatically when it detects movement. You need a micro SD card, which is not supplied, to be able to use this function. I used one from an old phone. You can also use the monitor on your pc to send videos to friends and family through your Skype or MSN account.
The Samsung SEW-3035 Monitor can be used with up to four cameras which can be purchased separately.
Another feature is the temperature settings; the temperature of the room is picked up by the camera and displayed on the monitor. You can set an alarm to let you know if this temperature gets too hot or too cold.
In summary I found the Samsung SEW-3035 monitor easy to use and it looks smart. The screen is clear and gives a good picture in both colour and black and white. The sound quality is good and can be adjusted. It has many features which are all quite simple to use.
The innovative Samsung SEW-3035 wireless baby monitoring system is available now in the UK with an RRP of £149.

I have two Samsung travel blankets to give away. They are chocolate colour and are soft and cosy for baby. The blankets fold and pack away not a leather pouch when not in use and they can then be hung from a pram. They are the perfect addition to any holiday and will ensure that baby travels in the utmost of comfort. Worth £19.99
The competition is now closed, congratulations to the winners, Sarah and Donna.
Recently we had a little wobble here at Bump To Bundle and were so close to closing shop. Things have been slow recently and that’s not something we like to admit. But is that any reason to give up? Hours and hours of hard work on a daily basis go into the shop, the blog, the promotion of both the shop and blog, so when the returns are less than desirable it’s hard to keep it all up.
However, we are not ready to give up just yet. First we have so much new stock for the summer, we don’t want to end up putting it on Ebay or likewise. What we need to do is have a rethink, a revamp, some fresh new ideas and we can get excited about what we are doing again.
In the meantime we would love it if you could show us some support either on Facebook, or Twitter, or even by leaving a comment on this blog. Our fans are always rewarded with special offers, freebies and competitions. If you are another business then contact us too as we love a little mutual support.

Nursing necklaces, or breastfeeding necklaces are a great buy for a new mum. They are made to be attractive and stimulating to your baby and are safe for baby to play with while mum is wearing the necklace. We sell Babybeads necklaces which have been safety tested. they are made from non-toxic acrylic beads and strung on cord tested to 100lbs breaking strain. They are also knotted to minimise the loss of beads in the unlikely event of a breakage.
The Babybeads we sell come in many different colours and designs like this adorable blue necklace with animals, Little Boy Blue
or this really beautiful brightly coloured necklace with flowers and fairies, Flower Fairy
Or maybe something a little more unisex like this multi coloured necklace with tiny guardian angels, Guardian Angel
They are not only useful for breastfeeding babies you can also use them when bottle feeding. Mum wears the necklace and baby can look at it or play with it while feeding. It doesn’t stop there though, they also come in handy at other times babies need distracting, like waiting for an appointment in the doctors surgery. The necklaces generally become a well played with favourite of baby. When the child is older, over three years old, they may like to wear the necklace themselves and they fit in great in the dressing up box. (That’s if mum can bear to part with it!)
You can see our full range of Babybeads necklaces here, they make a fantastic present for an expectant or new mum and would be great as a babyshower gift.
AT Bump To Bundle we love our baby shoes and this month we have decided to give away a pair in our fabulous new competition.
