There’s nothing better then a cuddle with a soft skinned baby, but when the weather turns and baby needs a blankie, Biddy Kins supply a range of beautifully patterned silky blankets to swaddle, wrap and comfort your baby. You can pop them over the pram or use them as a cover for a sneaky feed.
- Cloth Nappies
Cloth nappies may bring an image of post war mums with huge perambulators and red lipstick, but they are making a comeback and helping to save our planet. The effort involved is more than that of a disposable but the reward is tenfold, without the special folding of the past… These colourful, happy nappies have easy absorbent inserts and super quick pop buttons. They are also way more cost effective than normal kimbies!
- Crafty Creations
Supporting local is very important to us at Haus Wagner, this home start up, by a mom of three gives a wide range of cute crocheted cuddlies. Choose from Kirsten’s range or ask for something custom made, that baby can enjoy as they get older.
- Ecoffee Cups
This is a gift purely for mum. When the going gets tough and you’re finally allowed to drink caffeine again, these beautiful eco-friendly mugs found at Yuppichef and in selected shops are a great way to hold that liquid gold baby. Stunning patterns and practical lids will be the envy at any mom get together.
We hope this list inspires you to think out the nursery and give a gift that is well made, beautiful and practical. Something that will last and help any expectant mum with their new bundle of dirty nappies, messy clothes and cute smiles.
