Welcome to KitsToys.co.uk

Are you a new dad? Struggling with baby carriers, or reusable nappies? Are you looking for help and advice? You've come to the right place.

I created this website with you in mind!

I'm a new dad too, and I've spent the last year learning on-the-job about how to deal with these various things so that you don't have to. You'll find articles about baby health, living with your new addition, doing day to day tasks and more. I've focused on reusable nappies and baby carriers and how they make my life easier - I think they'll make yours easier too.

By the way - the lack of sleep? It doesn't get any easier!

I also try to give rational advice on things that you may not find elsewhere - you won't find me knee-jerking and rejecting all scientific evidence on this website. I've got posts on topics from vaccinations to baby dangling which will hopefully put your mind at ease.

In my blog you'll see a bit about our daily lives. It's meant to be a bit of fun, most of the meat of my website is in the other sections. Feel free to have a browse around and see what you can find.

If you want to get in touch, you can find me on Twitter @kitstoysjoe. Just click below to say hi!

Hi Joe! I just found your website and I'm taking a moment to say hello.
