BABY SLEEP: MOBA MOSES BASKET

The MOBA basket has been a long standing favourite of ours, and word is that Giovanni Fletcher is using one in pastel mint for her newborn, Max. The MOBA is the perfect first bed for your precious cargo to sleep safely by your side both day and night.

BABY SLEEP: BONDS Wondersuits

The iconic Bonds Zippy Wondersuits are made from super-soft cotton, and this season’s prints are as delicious as ever. The two-way zip makes baby changing fast and efficient while the zip cover keeps baby’s skin safe. Bonds Wondersuits are suitable from birth, and come complete with fold-over foot cuffs for those extra cold nights.
