From bath toys and baby carriers to plastic-free wet wipes and luxurious gelato, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
Matchstick Monkey animal teethers
Snap up one of these Crocodile Teethers from Matchstick Monkey. The award-winning teether brand has unveiled its animal teethers, including a pig, lion and penguin. Just like the famous Monkey, the latest teethers have arms, legs and feet that massage and soothe your child’s gums through the teething period. They’re also made from BioCote® anti-microbial technology, a pretty sophisticated material that kills 9.9% of microbes and prevents bacteria growing on the teether. Cool, right?

The Italian gelateria experience in a jar
We’ve never much bought into the ‘spa in a jar’ idea: you’ve either resting it up in a luxury spa or you’re at home in the bath with some oils. But an Italian gelateria experience in a jar? Yep, we’ll buy that, but only from Remeo Gelato and because it’s quite nice eating ice cream at home. One thing they need you to know is that it’s not ice cream. It has ‘less air, only a little cream and no eggs’, has fewer calories than ice cream and tastes better. It’s packaged in 100% recyclable plastic and you can recycle it afterwards. Where do you buy it? Waitrose, Ocado, Whole Foods, Harrods and independent stockists.

Biodegradable and plastic-free wet wipes
Wet wipes are the number one baby essential: you’ve got a baby, you’re going to need stacks of wet wipes. But, not just any old wipes — because many of them contain plastic and take hundreds of years to break down. Crazy, right? Fortunately, Aqua Wipes make eco-friendly plastic-free wipes that biodegrade in 15 days. So, you can wipe your baby’s bottom without feeling guilty about the environment. They’re also made from 99.6% purified water and organic aloe vera, which is natural and kind to baby’s skin.
