From wooden toys and Harry Potter fashion to mini-me pyjamas and alpaca blankets, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
The Amazon Echo Show 5 for the family home
I rely on my Echo Dot for pretty much everything—in particular playing the very song I want to hear at that very moment. It’s great for keeping the kids entertained too, where they can ask Alexa just about anything or spend time video-calling the grandparents. That’s right, the latest Echo has a video screen that can show you anything from recipes to film trailers to your smart home control centre. With extra emphasis on privacy, you can turn off the microphone and camera with the touch of a button.

Matching mini-me pyjamas from cyberjammies
Mini-me style is something that’s never going away, but if you’re not up for matching up with the little ones outside the house, try to resist this adorable mother-daughter loungewear that cyberjammies has recently launched.

Eco-friendly and sustainable alpaca blankets
Tuwi London has been on our radar for a while because we just can’t get enough of its super-soft alpaca wool blankets for keeping the little ones cosy and snug. The luxurious blankets that come in a range of neutral colours with Liberty print trims are an ideal gift for a new parent that will no doubt come in useful throughout the first years of baby’s life. It’s also good to know that the alpaca wool is always sourced sustainably, a great alternative to cashmere that is having a disastrous impact on the environment. Blankets start from £165, and there’s one in the sale for £82.50 here.

Beaba Weaning Essentials bundle for your baba
Weaning your baby can be a daunting prospect, preparing baby food for the first time and transitioning onto solid foods can be a big challenge. It’s also a really rewarding thing to do because preparing your own food ensures you know exactly what your baby is eating and they’re not being loaded up on salt and sugar unnecessarily. The Beaba weaning essentials kit gives you all the help you’ll need with a weaning cookbook, multi-portion and clip containers, as well as soft spoons for feeding.
