The BassiNest® is the only bassinet on the market that swivels 360 degrees for safe, close sleep. The patented retractable wall allows parents to care for their baby from the comfort of their own bed by lowering the bedside wall.
What we love about the BassiNest is that it gives parents reassurance that their baby is sleeping safely in their own space. The rotation of the BassiNest makes getting out of bed easier which is particularly important for mums healing from birth and C-sections. The mesh sides provide breathability and also enables parents to easily see their baby.
The Premiere is available in a white Pebble fabric with a subtle grey dotted print and features a soothing centre with calming sounds, vibration and night lights.

New Launch: Kids Bike Trailers
Kids Bike Trailers has officially launched in the UK following the success of its pilot scheme last summer. The new online sports equipment hire platform, created by parent company Pursue Boundaries, is the UK’s first dedicated online website for kids’ bike trailer and seat hire, designed for families nationwide to enjoy great adventures together.
Offering a range of children’s bike trailers and seats for hire, Kids Bike Trailers seeks to change the family cycling scene by offering parents the opportunity to try out cycling experiences; whether needing a short-term rental for a long weekend, or looking for a season-long rental, the hire period is flexible to the family’s needs. There is even the option to purchase the product after use!
Top-quality bike trailers can be pricey items to purchase outright and there are so many makes and models on the market to choose from. Starting from just £10 for a mounted child seat and £25 for a trailer, Kids Bike Trailers aims to shake up the ‘normal’ purchasing model of these cycling accessories through the sharing economy and new hire approach.

100% Midwife-Led National Antenatal Course, My Expert Midwife
My Expert Midwife is launching a 100% midwife-led national antenatal course to help expecting mums and dads on their journey into parenthood. In the current climate, the classes will be taught online, with face-to-face classes to be introduced across the UK when Covid-19 restrictions allow.
Unlike midwifery, which is a highly regulated profession, antenatal classes are not regulated. This has inspired Lesley Gilchrist, a registered midwife and founder of My Expert Midwife, to launch the brand’s own evidence-based classes taught exclusively by registered midwives – experts in every area of maternity care, with unparalleled knowledge and experience.
From bump to baby, the antenatal classes will prepare expecting parents in the best way possible for the reality of labour, birth and parenting. The “anti-fluff” course material is all evidence-based, and both practical and fun, educating parents while replacing anxiety about the unknown of childbirth with excitement and anticipation.

Heinz Baby has added two exciting new ranges to their existing line-up, including one plant-based range, and all are made with the tastiest natural ingredients.
The new plant-based range is specially designed with babies’ tiny taste buds in mind. It’s great for parents looking to introduce more savoury flavours and plant-based ingredients to their little one’s menu, boosted by protein rich pulses, the perfect complement to a balanced weaning journey.
Baby Annabell Little Sweet Princess is the most adorable little girl! When you give her a kiss, she makes little kissing noises in return and her cheeks blush from excitement. And that’s not all, this little princess has sleeping eyes, so when you lie her down for a nap, she closes her eyes and drifts off into a lovely slumber. Plus, if you give her a goodnight kiss, she makes cute sleeping noises like a little yawn. An adorable doll your little ones will treasure.
My Art Book of Friendship by Shana Gozansky, Published by Phaidon

Author Shana Gozansky celebrates friendship through 33 full-page artworks, accompanied by read-aloud texts. Pieces such as Together by KAWS demonstrate that readers are still loved in friendships even when they are sad and works by Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst reveal that friendships continue whether you are together or apart. Other artists featured include Eva Navarro, Edvard Munch, Keith Haring, Grace Weaver, Aliza Nissenbaum and the Haas Brothers.
