We collected Oscar’s hand and foot cast by Memory Makers UK last weekend and I absolutely love it. I had Dylan’s done when he was a baby too, so I made sure that Oscar’s were done at the same age. It’s amazing to be able to compare them. The details are just incredible, you can see every little wrinkle and dimple of the skin. I just think they are an amazing keepsake to treasure, and look back on when those hands and feet aren’t so small anymore.
The process is really simple, we booked our appointment online (we had ours done at Mothecare Stevenage). On the day, you arrive and the rep will talk you through how to sit and hold your baby/child so that they have access to the body part they are casting.
They wrap your babies hand or foot in the moulding material for a moment or two and then easily remove it. Neither Oscar or previously Dylan found the process uncomfortable or distressing in the slightest.
You then discuss your options and finalise your design. They give you an order number and a receipt. You can upload photos online at home, if you would like one. They then text you when your keepsake is ready and available for collection.
- Feed baby before hand, this will help make sure they are content and have less likelihood of any distress.
- Have in mind the design you would like, browse the website and know your options.
Memory Makers UK can currently be found in Mothercare stores which, as many of us know, will sadly be closing its doors in the near future. Memory Makers will continue to offer appointments in store until that time comes, and they will continue to make home visits.
They have given me a discount code to share with my followers. You can get 5% off any keepsake using the code INSTA5, when booking an appointment before the 31.12.19.
Note* I paid full price for my product and had absolutely no obligation to write about my experience. Memory Makers saw a post I published on Instagram and kindly reached out to offer my following a discount.
