The Measure: What’s Hot For Parents & Kids

eLearning Platform, My Expert Midwife

Parents-to-be can now access a comprehensive eLearning platform containing over seven hours of expert-developed antenatal educational information broken down into easy-to-digest video topics. The eLearning programme has been developed by a team of midwives, an obstetrician and anaesthetist to prepare parents-to-be for late pregnancy, labour and birth and postnatal recovery. All information on the My Expert Midwife eLearning platform has been developed to empower parents-to-be to make their own decisions, with clinically accurate information.

The on-demand, eLearning platform contains 137 key topics that can be accessed at any time to fit into parents-to-be schedules and can be paused or repeated if they want to recap the topic. The programme will cover the physiological processes of pregnancy, the medical side of pregnancy and birth, and how to navigate the maternity system and also combines practical advice on key areas that are important to parents-to-be. The programme also comes with unlimited access to the My Expert Midwife MEMbers club, a private forum moderated by registered midwives.

My Expert Midwife’s antenatal eLearning programme is available at My Expert Midwife for an introductory price of £49 (usual price £65) for ten months’ access and ongoing access to the MEMbers club.

Soothing Vapour Bath, Johnson’s Baby

Johnson’s Baby has launched a new product designed to help calm and comfort babies for the perfect bathtime routine. The all-new Soothing Vapour Bath is the latest addition to Johnson’s much-loved range of family favourites.

Boasting a soothing aroma, Soothing Vapour Bath provides little ones with a multisensory experience, which decades of research have shown is a key part of happy and healthy baby development. In fact, studies have shown that babies bathed with a scented bath product presented 30% more engagement cues with their parents than when bathed with unscented products.

Fragrances encourage bonding during early development and help babies familiarise and associate emotions with activities or a place and time. Made using 90% naturally derived ingredients, Soothing Vapour Bath helps to soothe and comfort baby during bathtime, whilst gently cleansing. It’s hypoallergenic, and the bottle is recyclable.

Silhouette, Cosatto

The result of years of development and a desire to ‘design for everyone’, Silhouette is the brand-new collection from Cosatto. With all the trademark expertise, craftsmanship and functionality you expect from the leading nursery brand, Silhouette means there truly is a Cosatto pushchair for every parent.

Holding firmly onto Cosatto’s diverse design values, Silhouette may be jet-black, but it’s anything but basic. Vicky Morley, Cosatto Creative and Marketing Director, says, “Designing Silhouette was like a perfect puzzle. It had to happen, it was a natural consequence and celebration of all Cosatto’s craftsmanship – the sum of all styling, standing out perfectly in plain black.”

Amid this atmospheric aesthetic, Cosatto’s classic sensory hood takes centre stage with unique baby-engaging black-and-white silhouette patterns. From working with the UK’s leading baby labs, to harnessing early sensory skills with designs that encourage engagement, this reflects the brand’s ‘Better for your Baby’ ethos.
