Kabode was founded by parents who wanted to designed bedding to match their children’s personalities. Along the way, Kabode realised just how many decisions they would need to make and how much of an impact children’s bedding has on the environment.
They decided to make bedding that’s not only better for children, but better for the planet. All of Kabode’s products are designed using only 100% organic cotton and other sustainably produced materials.
Kabode’s products span crib, cot and cot bed, and come in an array of gorgeous prints that will look fabulous in any nursery.

My Baba pick: Zippered Sleepsuit
Bebies range of sleep toys was created by mum of two boys, Danielle, as a result of her own personal experience with her youngest baby. After spending countless hours trying to ‘shhh’ him to sleep, she quickly realised he would only settle when hearing her voice. She trawled the internet trying to find something which could replicate her voice, but when her search was fruitless, the idea for Bebies Sleep Toys was born!
Record your own settling words, sounds or songs with Bebies’ built-in microphone and voice recorder. Intelligent sleep sensor technology automatically activates if your baby cries or stirs in the night. You can also play white noise or a lullaby to calm your baby back to sleep using its adjustable timer and volume controls. There are four super-cute animals to choose from.
My Baba pick: Felix The Fox
Etta Loves was created to turn everyday essentials into sensory sensations, by using the science of what babies can and can’t see to create clever and stunning patterns.

Etta Loves takes great care when choosing fabrics, being understanding and mindful of the impact their business has on the environment and on those making and handling our goods. Every product produced is tested to the highest global standards, so you can have the utmost confidence that Etta Loves’ products will always be best for baby too.
My Baba pick: Animal Print Playmat
Luxury skincare brand Little Butterfly London was founded by new mother Gudrun Wurm in response to the lack of organic, gentle, and safe baby products on the market.

NUPEAA’s brilliant self-heating, portable Bottle Warmer Active warms a bottle in as little as 4 minutes, anywhere, anytime. The new intelligent battery-powered, portable bottle warmer is ideal for parents on the go.
NUPEAA is the creation of husband and wife parenting duo, who were frustrated with the number of baby essentials they needed whenever they wanted to leave the house. Their passion for making life easier for both themselves and other parents gave them the drive to establish NUPEAA during the first national lockdown.
My Baba pick: Bottle Warmer Active
Cuddledry was founded in 2006 by two mums and long-term friends Polly and Helen after the births of their first children. The Cuddledry range is made largely from bamboo because of its high sustainability and durability. All packaging is recyclable and each product is made with longevity in mind.
Our favourite pick is the ‘Hands-Free Baby Towel’ that attaches to the parent like an apron, keeping you dry and allowing you to lift and wrap your baby quickly and easily. Just pop the hood over your baby’s head, and simply cuddle them dry. Recommended by midwives, maternity nurses and parents all over the world!

When it comes to sustainable baby brands and nappies, Mama Bamboo’s nappy range is B-Corp status approved, which means their nappies meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability.
Their product range is made mostly from bamboo, which grows without gallons of irrigation, unlike cotton. The bamboo plant doesn’t need chemicals, pesticides, or fertilisers to grow, and by using Bamboo as the core component for products they’re using a plant with low water consumption, low needs for pesticides and sustainable certifications. Mama Bamboo also uses only 100% compostable packaging.
