The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

Just Spices

Just Spices are the go-to when it comes to adding bucketloads of flavour to everything from pancakes to pasta! Think, Turmeric Latte Seasoning; Coffee Kiss; Roast Potato Seasoning; Feta Topping; Spicy Pizza Topping; Avocado Topping and lots more!

Their most recent addition is a range of Organic Ready Meals which we love. Just Spices products have been created for the keen (but often very busy!!) cook, someone who wants delicious, healthy food without the need for too many pots and pans! Available from Just Spices, and a little birdie tells us, some of their bestselling products are about to land on Waitrose shelves too!

Bamford Baby, Bamford

Introducing Bamford Baby, a curated collection of everyday bath and body essentials for mother and baby and sweet, soft cotton pieces with which to cocoon your little one.

Taking inspiration from rebirth and springtime at Daylesford Farm, a playful design in delicate Cotswolds Green brings the collection to life, introducing characters inspired by Bamford’s flock of Merino sheep; Clover the lamb and her mother, Cloud. Illustrations throughout accessories and packaging are set in the English countryside and see Clover play, leap and nestle into Cloud whilst Bamford’s signature heart surrounds them with love.


The lifestyle capsule created in soft, GOTS-certified organic cotton includes newborn pieces designed for blissful bathing and peaceful sleeping; a Muslin, Large Muslin, pop-over Poncho, Hooded Towel, Robe and Teething Bib.

Adding to the collection and supporting heritage craftsmanship, a cotton Nappy Bag, Blanket and Pouch have been quilted and hand block-printed by Bamford’s artisans in India. A Cloud and Clover push-along toy has been handcrafted by second-generation craftsmen and finished by hand with non-toxic paints especially suited for children.


NEW Babycook Solo Express, Beaba

BÉABA introduces its BRAND NEW Babycook Solo Express, the new generation fastest ever steamer/blender that’s also eco-friendly too!

This 4-in-1 baby food maker is economical and faster than ever before. With 2-cooking modes (Express and Eco), it steams, defrosts and reheats, plus mixes, blends and chops to create delicious, nutritious home-made baby food in minutes.

Available in grey at selected retailers with an RRP of £140.

NEW Influencer Air Stroller, Leclerc Baby

With the latest addition to the Leclerc Baby portfolio, you’ll be the envy of everyone when they see how easy and slick the Influencer Air stroller folds. Using only gravity, the stroller folds down neatly in just 1.5 seconds! Pack it away neatly in its travel bag for convenience when travelling whether that be in your car, on the train or in the overhead compartment of a plane to jet off on your holidays!

Weighing only 6.6kg, the Influencer Air is light, neat and compact with no compromise on the push or the stability of your stroller. What is also great is that it will carry your growing child from 6 months right up until they weigh 22kg!

Leclerc Baby pays attention to the details – functionality, safety AND style.

The Keep Cool Collection, Medela

Just launched in John Lewis, Medela is thrilled to welcome a new range to its trusted maternity lingerie offering – introducing Keep Cool an innovative collection of 3 seamless and wireless styles. Promising all the comfort the existing styles are known and loved for, but with a brand-new moisture-wicking technology to keep mums feeling cool and fresh, the collection is ideal to support throughout the day and night.

The Keep Cool collection includes the Sleep Bra, the Keep Cool and the Keep Cool Ultra. Each style has been thoughtfully designed with specially knitted breathing zones that enable air circulation, as well as quick-drying technology embedded within the lightweight moisture-wicking fabric that moves sweat away from the body.
