One of the most daunting things about using a baby carrier can be getting it on and your baby inside without tying yourself up in knots, not to mention the fear of letting something you are wearing safely hold your baby! Being hands free can feel very unnatural at first. The Complete Original baby carrier from Lillebaby comes with a great instruction manual with some of the most smiley women you have ever seen, clearly illustrating how to approach each carrying option.
The Tula 3 blanket sets come in 38 designs to help you find the perfect theme to match your nursery. Options include one rather funky blanket and two not so exciting plain blankets in complementary colours. The Saguaro design that we received was a Cacti patterned blanket, perhaps not the first thing that springs to mind when you think of soft and cosy blankets, but it is cute nonetheless. The other two blankets come in an attractive Basil Green and Jade Green.

Constructed from 100% OEKO-TEX standard 100 certified fabric the Tula Free-To-Grow are hand-made, the body panel adjusts to three different widths settings and two height settings which could take you from new-born to early toddler.
Meet Snoozy, from myHummy this fuzzy little “bear” comes in two colours, Slate or Mint, both modern, gender neutral designs. No pastel pink or sky blue here! Snoozy plays soothing sounds to help lull babies to sleep and can be attached to a cot with a dummy clip. Snoozy comes with five different white noise options to choose from, amniotic fluid with heartbeat (wasn’t he a DJ in the 90’s?), ocean waves, rainfall, vacuum cleaner and a hairdryer.

As we are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of keeping our carbon footprint to a minimum, more and more companies are trying to do their part.

Even though I have recently level upped into fully fledged grown-up (turned 30 AND got married in the same year), all my clothes feature at least one of three things: the colour black, rips. or skulls. Although my Mum thinks I should grow up, I’m ok with that. Being in the same position as a lot of people my age who are newly married, we are preparing for the next step (no, not divorce), the pitter patter of tiny financial burdens.
This baby seat aims to provide a safe and balanced ride for both adult and child, with a centre mounted seat to help distribute the weight evenly and put the child between your arm, where you can easily talk and keep an eye on them, unlike rear mounted seats. The new design has higher sides for increased child-stability, an added strap underneath the bar for further stability, a two-movement thumbscrew, a two-movement buckle release, additional straps on the foot cups, and also features an increased seat size.
The rockaRoo produces a big swinging motion in a compact baby seat, our test subject - 2 month old violet, LOVES it. Violet’s mum and dad were first drawn to the rockaRoo because they live in a flat and wanted something with a comforting motion and at a 3rd of the size of a traditional swing it wouldn’t take up half the living room. 4moms state that it is suitable for use from birth until the child reaches maximum weight limit of 25 pounds, can sit up unassisted or attempts to climb out.
