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. Greentom are the creators of the first ever green stroller.

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.
The Rocker Napper by Tiny Love is a versatile seat suitable for babies up to 40lb/18kg.

In all three reclining positions, you can choose between stabilising the Rocker, letting your baby’s movements create a rocking motion, or turning on the soothing vibrations to calm and relax your child.
