Mumsnet swears by

october fashion

Mumsnetters are the best shoppers around, so we've tapped into their wisdom to source the stuff that really works: the comfiest winter boots, the skincare that delivers astounding bang for your buck, the cleaning product that actually does what it says on the tin.

From fashion to books to inflatable seagulls (don't ask), here's what everyone's buying this week and where to find it. It's updated every seven days, so come back often and sign up to our weekly Swears By email. You need never be the last to know again.

Swears By is always based on Mumsnetters' recommendations, if you are after the products we've tested and loved then check out our Reviews section.

My Child Won't Eat by Carlos González, from £3.99

Fussy eater? Don't despair. This book may just have the solution.

“There's a book called My Child Won’t Eat and it's the most useful book I have ever read. To sum it up: don't sweat it, as over-thinking is your enemy here. Offer healthy food and let him take it or leave it, because forcing it on him will be counterproductive. Honestly – give it a read.” Namechangemum100
