Hat tips - Children often love them or hate them!
Here's some ideas for encouraging your child to wear their sun hat.
Choose a hat that fits well. A hat that is too big or too small is uncomfortable to wear and more likely to be pulled off.
Play! Have a selection of hats inside that your child can choose to dress up with on themselves, or put on you! Make wearing hats fun!
Empowerment. Create a hat box or basket by the door where your child can find a hat on their way outside. This works well for shoes too!
Consistency. "If you want to play outside, you need to wear your hat" Holding a clear and consistent boundary helps your child to learn what is expected of them every time they go outside.
Role model. Put your own hat on during the times you expect your child to be wearing theirs, as we know, children love to copy what their important adults do!
Just want to thank the absolutely amazing lady who helped me out last week. Thanks for your amazing customer service, advice, sense of humour and ability to work to my time limits I will definitely be back to purchase more when the bank account agrees with me Again thank you, highly recommend for a friend
They tucked me under their wing, nurtured and helped me to grow from the nest. The Stork Network became like my second home and words will never describe how much it meant to me, although I have now spread my own wings and taken off they will always and forever be in my heart
Amazing support for families, especially new mums. Great products, and the ladies always listen and help where they can. Love having a place where I can comfortably feed/change my daughter while in town and have a yummy drink and good chats at the same time. Ashburton is lucky to have you!
Just had a bra fitting with the amazing ladies from The Stork Network. Turns out I have been wearing totally the wrong size for years. What a difference when I got the correct size. Kirsty is so knowledgeable and she made the whole process feel comfortable and not embarassing at all. Would definitely recommend!
Something For Mum
Best place to buy a car seat by far! Amazing, friendly and knowledgeable service. Would highly recommend! Also a great wee shop for all your essential baby needs and a room out the back to feed your baby if you need as well which is super handy. Glad we have a place like this in Ashburton 😄
Thank you so much for all your advice and knowledge when helping me get a car seat for my daughter today. You were super helpful and friendly. It’s so reassuring knowing her new car seat is installed correctly by an expert. What a great atmosphere at the shop with the cafe, toilet, change table facilities and a great big space in the shop. Highly recommend, thanks again.
These guys are awesome! Not only is the coffee and service outstanding, The products they stock are right on point, high quality, practical and affordable. Can’t recommend The Stork Network enough! If you haven’t been to visit you must get there!
Went and had our car capsule fitted. They were full of knowledge and gave us some tips for the car seat with adjustments.
Hot Chocolates were great too.. Thanks Ladies. Will be back with bubs :)
The Stork Network is the absolute best place to go for a new car seat. I feel 100% confident that I have purchased the correct and safest car seat for my daughter. Also, the coffee was in the top two cups of coffee I've ever had! Thanks so much!
