    The Most Comprehensive Hospital Bag List for All Kinds of Mums!

    As lots of you know by now, Effie and Sophie, the Sleep Thief founders, met on an antenatal course before the birth of their little girls. When preparing to go to hospital for their births, things were a little bit different for each of them! Effie enjoys a bit of 'wooky' (as her husband likes to say), whereas Sophie is more logical (and practical), and so you'll see this reflected in their choices for their hospital bag must-haves.  So, whether you're a hippy-esque Hannah or a straight-laced Susan, here is the most comprehensive hospital bag list you will ever find!...

    A Word from the Midwife!

    Sophie and Effie met Charlotte of the amazing Birthtale ( and @birthtale) at antenatal classes. Birthtale are a London-based trio of midwives offering antenatal and postnatal services. We got in touch with Charlotte to see if she wanted to give the Mischiefsuit a whirl, and here is what she said: "I was thrilled to be contacted by Effie and Sophie and to hear about their new business venture. Firstly because they met at a Bump and Baby Club class that I was leading 3 years ago and secondly because they have created something that is really needed..... a practical (yet stylish) range...

    In the first of our guest blog posts, we have some amazing advice from Kate of Sleep Time Baby about getting your Sleep Thieves to sleep in the summer!

    What's Next for Sleep Thief?

    I'll never forget the morning I was dressing my 3 month old daughter Eva. It was a chilly day in North London, and we were still getting through all the lovely gifts we had been given for her birthday and Christmas.  I was so excited to try out one babygrow in particular. It was made of organic bamboo and cotton, and was in beautiful colours. It was just so soft and so cute, and it looked snuggly for the frosty day outside.  Then came the time to put it on. I was sort of used to poppers by now so...

    Meet Sophie, one half of Sleep Thief

    I’m Sophie, one half of the Sleep Thief Team. In my life before motherhood, I worked across a number of industries (events, finance, sports hospitality) and a long time before that, I graduated from Nottingham University with a BA in Archaeology, a subject I chose for my love of history but dislike of writing essays (I’m dyslexic and writing just isn’t my strong suit so apologies in the advance for the quality of this blog!). After university I took my own version of what is probably a familiar journey for a number of readers, moving from job to job every...
