From a no-nonsense guide to growing up and a magnetic baby carrier to ethically-sourced cashmere and sailing with Santa, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.
The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper
Tiny Love has combined the rocker and bassinet into one with this nifty 3-in-1 Rocker Napper that shifts between the two playtime and sleep time modes with one easy click. One moment it can be in lie-flat mode with calming vibrations to help baby drift off to sleep, the next you can switch it to Rock & Play mode with gentle light and music to keep baby entertained. You also have Upright Sitting Mode, where baby can sit safely in the Rocker while you go about your day.

Eco-Conscious baby food prep
It steam cooks, blends, defrosts, reheats and is more eco-friendly than ever before. We’re talking about the Babycook Neo from Béaba. It uses 48% less carbon dioxide and 50% less water and energy consumption than the Babycook® Solo — pretty cool, right? Also, we’re loving the chic night-blue colour it comes in.

The lightweight and compact urban stroller
If you’re a city dweller, a compact and lightweight stroller is indispensable. The Stokke® Beat™ is perfect for zipping about the city and hopping on and off of public transport. What’s more, it can be swiftly folded up with one hand and has shock-absorbing wheels to ensure a smooth ride and tackle any cobbled or uneven pavement. It folds down pretty small too, so it’s ideal if you’re short on storage space at home.

The no-nonsense guide to growing up
Why am I starting to get spots? And why are my parents so strict? The no-nonsense guide to growing up is going to help answer all those questions your pre-teen boy or girl might be having. Help! Why Am I Changing is on-hand to guide children through puberty and adolescence and help them navigate through the modern changes they may face, including online safety and textual harassment.
Your one-stop brow and lash grooming salon
Step into Browhaus for a luscious lash treatment and brow resurrection. The salon, which now has four sites across London (Holborn, Covent Garden, Chelsea and Islington), is our new go-to for eyebrow grooming. Choose between Browgraphy and Brow Resurrection; the first is great for anyone who’s guilty of over plucking and needs some definition, while the Resurrection creates natural-looking strokes amongst your own hair strands. Also, the Holborn location that we visited is decked out like the Grand Budapest Hotel!

A city cruise with Santa
Yes, we’re talking about Christmas. Only because this is something you need to book tickets to before they sell out. It’s the City Cruises’ Sail with Santa Experience! It’s a unique chance for the children to meet Santa as you’re sailing up the Thames. The experience includes a present, along with a soft drink and a cookie, while the adults have the option of mulled wine and a mince pie.

The magnetic 4-position baby carrier
We all know Béaba for its weaning range, but now the brand has joined up with Najell to design a baby carrier that’s as practical and easy-to-use as any of its feeding gear. The Najell Original 4-position Baby Carrier connects with super-strength magnetic buckles — forget complicated straps and buckles! It can support a child from 6 – 36 months (up to 15kg) and can be used in newborn position, forward-facing, inward-facing and back carrying.

Ethically sourced cashmere and cotton
Orwell + Austen responsibly creates cashmere pieces using yarns which have a lower environmental impact than pure cashmere. What’s more, they’re super eye-catching and playful. Environmentally conscious cashmere? Yes, please!
