The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

DUALFIX M Plus Car Seat, Britax Römer

With its innovative 360-degree spin feature, switching between forward and rear-facing modes has never been easier – no reinstalling required. The seat’s weight limit of 20kg means it can be used for longer than others in its category. Rest assured, the DUALFIX M Plus prioritizes safety with its advanced features, including side-impact protection. Your child’s comfort is also guaranteed with an adjustable headrest and cozy padding. Whether running errands or embarking on a road trip, this car seat covers you and your little one. Trust in its quality, convenience, and peace of mind on the go.

BT2200 Plus Volume Limited Kids’ Bluetooth Headphones, Puro Sound Labs

Puro Sound Labs has launched a new improved upgrade on its BT2200 children’s headphones, the BT2200 Plus. This follows on from the huge success of the award-winning BT2200, which was named as ‘best overall kids headphone’ by Good Housekeeping, ‘best headphones for tiny heads’ by Wired and ‘best kids headphones overall’ recently by ZDNET.

The BT2200 Plus is available in a choice of six colours, including black, blue, green, purple, teal and pink, all available from Amazon for £100.

In keeping with Puro Sound Labs’ mission to protect consumers’ hearing, the headphones are made to protect young listeners’ eardrums from early hearing damage, being volume limited to 85 dB in line with World Health Organisation recommendations.

Despite this, they certainly don’t compromise on sound quality. The Puro Balanced Response® Curve technology is engineered to deliver the finest genuine studio sound with clear, crisp vocals and full dynamic bass suitable for all genres of music. Additionally, the BT2200 Plus features a fully passive design that blocks 83% of the ambient noise @ 1kHz just by wearing them, ensuring that users can listen to their favourite tracks, audiobooks or YouTube undisturbed or find their own space in shared environments.

Floating Bath Toys, BIBS

Designed and produced in Denmark, BIBS has launched these sweet floating bath toys, perfect for the bathtub, the beach, or other water fun. They’re aimed at babies and toddlers from 12+ months, and are made of 100% safe food-grade materials.

BIBS Floating Bath Toys promote fine motor development and encourage creative play.

WASuP Bite and Sting Relief, Mini First Aid

Introducing WASuP, a unique and super handy remedy to soothe stings and bites naturally. Perfectly portable, the pocket-sized device will fit into any handbag, backpack, changing bag (for families), bum bag, or even in a pocket and is suitable for everyone, from baby to 99 years plus.

Each WASuP capsule contains a biodegradable bamboo wipe that has been soaked in 100% organic apple cider vinegar – a well-known traditional remedy to naturally soothe just about any sting/bite. Rather wonderfully, WASuP works on wasp stings, horsefly bites, mosquito and midge bites, and other insect bites, nettle stings and even jellyfish stings!

Rise By Tinie, Silver Cross

The artist, producer and dad-of-two, Tinie Tempah, has partnered with the prestigious nursery brand Silver Cross to launch a unique collection of travel essentials expertly designed to elevate the parenting experience and reflect the needs of modern British parents.

The ‘Rise By Tinie’ range features three intuitive products inspired by Tinie’s own experiences as a dad. Designed by Tinie himself, the collection aims to be super functional but with a high-end, luxury look and feel.

Tinie comments: “I’ve always wondered as a dad why there hasn’t really been a pram, travel cot or car seat with a more unisex aesthetic that will appeal to men just as much as women.”

Latest Books

Lottie Brooks’s Totally Disastrous School-Trip, Katie Kirby

Lottie Brooks continues to navigate the many perils of growing up in this fantastically funny illustrated series for a 9-12 audience, filled with friendship, embarrassing moments and plenty of lols.

Woe is me. So much is wrong in my life…

Still look like a tomato
Am stuck indoors whilst my friends go bowling without me (rude)
My parents are leaving me to go out on a ‘Date Night.’ GROSS!

After a summer of meeting handsome French boys and getting a tiny bit sunburnt, OK, fine – a lot sunburnt, Lottie’s heading off on a week-long residential school trip. A whole week away from embarrassing parents and Toby’s tasty air biscuits!

But the trip soon turns into a total disaster. The other girls staying at the camp are MEGA-MEAN, best friend Jess is spending all her time with new girl Isha, and Lottie’s diary gets stolen!


Enough About The Baby, Becky Vieira

An unapologetic guide to the first year of motherhood for women who recognise the necessity of self-care–even if sometimes the rest of the world does not.

Superheroes don’t have babies; real and imperfect non-superhumans do. When we come to terms with this, the result is a happier and less traumatizing start to motherhood. The mum behind the popular Instagram account @wittyotter provides actionable advice on navigating the frustrations and challenges of a new baby.

Vieira draws on her own experiences and interviews with mums and experts to get to the bottom of the toughest and most taboo topics, from managing nosey in-laws and an anxious partner to surviving the first postpartum poop and when to seek out treatment for depression.

The book is filled with hacks, tips, and tricks that only the most seasoned–and enlightened–mom knows. (Ever heard of a condomcicle, an ergonomic ice pack for a battered nether region?) Vieira reminds readers that motherhood shouldn’t be martyrdom, and a new mom who puts her needs first often isn’t selfish at all.
