Staff Picks: January 2017

Wow it’s cold! Nothing like a bit of frost to make the world beautiful but also to make you want to stay in bed … If you’re curled up avoiding the cold, or home from a busy day, we have some good advice about what you need for baby in 2017.

Here at Private Pregnancy we have lots of experience in all matters of pregnancy and young children, so we’ve scoured the shops and used our own experience to make pregnancy and motherhood that little bit easier for you.

Red Kite Sleeptight Travel Cot


Red Kite Sleeptight Travel Cot

While it’s cold outside, what else is there to do other than plan a getaway? One of our mums went away over Christmas and ordered this after reading rave reviews. It didn’t disappoint! The award winning Sleeptight Travel Cot from Red Kite is cheap, easy to assemble and pack away and light to carry. Why spend a fortune on something that’s used a handful of times when this is such a brilliant piece of baby gear? For £15-£20 extra it’s worth ordering a separate travel cot mattress to make it that little bit more comfortable.

Happy Bowl

With baby led weaning growing in popularity, how do you get the little rascals to leave the plate alone and concentrate on the food? This silicone placemat and plate suctions to the flat plastic surface of a highchair so that it stays in place. Available in different colours, it’s fun, looks great, and might just inspire your little one to eat his greens! Made from 100% food grade silicone; BPA, BPS, PVC, lead and phthalate free, it’s easy to wash with soapy water or in the dishwasher and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Snuggle Up Pregnancy Pillow


Snuggle Up Pregnancy Pillow

One thing they don’t tell you about pregnancy is just how uncomfortable you can get! And at this time of year, who wants to be uncomfortable? Many mums-to-be have found these award winning pregnancy pillows a godsend when it comes to getting a good night’s sleep. They are the only maternity pillow proven to be asthma and allergy friendly and they come in a variety of shapes to pinpoint specific pain areas. Not only are they fantastic during pregnancy, they can be used throughout nursing and beyond.

Used by hospitals and baby units worldwide, the WubbaNub is practical too: no more lost dummies, or babies struggling to get them in their own mouths. The WubbaNub is easy for baby hands to manipulate and will give them hours of fun and comfort. Be prepared for the WubbaNub to become baby’s best friend.

GB Pockit Stroller


GB Pockit Stroller

According to the Guinness World Records (2014) this is the world’s smallest folding stroller. So small and lightweight in fact that it folds down into a bag and can be stored in the overhead locker on a plane. Perfect for your summer travel plans! It’s also ideal for navigating the London tube. The current version doesn’t recline (new version expected this year), and of course the storage basket won’t cope with an entire day’s shopping, but this stroller is second to none when it comes to portability.
