We bought her ear defenders a year or so ago and although they worked on bonfire night, she doesn’t find them particularly comfortable or easy to wear. When I was contacted by EasySMX to see if we would like to try out some children’s headphones, we were interested to see if they would help Mia when we are out.

    We all know how difficult the month of January is, we have all indulged over Christmas and the New Year but we still have the usual bills and jobs to do over the next month or so.
