Fred and Noah baby leggings

I adore baby leggings and love the prints available in the small but perfectly formed range from Fred & Noah. My favourites have to be the giraffes, but the nautical ones have an appeal too (I am married to sailor after all!). They go from newborn to 24 months and are priced from £12. Along with the super-cute designs […]
