My Baba Measure: What’s Hot This Week

From breastfeeding-friendly cafes and snuggly sleeping bags to an ingenious pocket money app and seriously cool ski suits, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week.

Pocket money made simple

Let’s face it — nobody carries cash anymore. So, when it comes to giving your children pocket money, stumping up your spare change isn’t an option. The Rooster Money pocket money app is going to change your life, or at least teach your kids the value of cash and simplify the doling out of pocket money. How’s it work? Download the app. Everyone gets an account and now all of their allowances are in one place. The kids can save for things, and if they’re pestering for something while you’re out, you can easily deduct the amount from their account.

Rooster Money is giving My Baba readers £10 free pocket money to help kick start their savings; just enter 3BRD4-3 during the sign-up process.

More than getting from A to B

The Stokke Trailz will get you from A to B across all terrains, as well as let you switch between carry cot, stroller seat and car seats, making any journey with your baby effortless and comfortable. The limited-edition Stokke Trailz Freedom is ideal for the cooler months because it’s made from water-repellent material and has an ergonomic thermo-keep inlay for keeping your child warm and cosy. It comes in rich blues and greens inspired by the Norwegian landscape, making it a calming environment for your baby and also, a very stylish stroller.

Treating bumps and grazes

Mustela Cicastela Repairing Cream is a good all-purpose solution for little bumps and wounds. It works on nappy rash, insect bites, chickenpox marks and other irritations. It speeds up the healing process by creating a protective non-sticky barrier on the skin that allows the irritation to heal. The Repairing Cream can be used from birth and is suited to all skin types, including atopic-prone and sensitive.

Baby and breastfeeding-friendly cafes

Post-natal fashion brand Sarka London has launched a campaign to highlight the cafes and restaurants in London that welcome parents and babies. We’ve all been there, hovering outside a coffee shop, wondering if it’ll be baby-friendly — ‘Will the staff be kind about the buggy?’ ‘Will it be awkward for other diners if I breastfeed?’ Sarka London is working with cafes and providing them with a baby-friendly endorsement sticker if they fit the bill, so you will not have to think twice about nipping into a London cafe you’ve never visited before.

Get your Boomtown Festival tickets for 2020

We were blown away by Boomtown Festival this year, so picking up early bird tickets for next year is a no-brainer. The lineup will not be revealed yet but judging by this year’s (The Streets, Ms Lauryn Hill and Groove Armada), we’re not concerned. Boomtown isn’t just about the music (with over 1,000 acts, you’ll find something you like), it’s about immersing yourself in a fictitious, mystifying city. For us, it’s all about KidzTown, with its Raucous Rascals stage, radio station run by children, a baby area and child-friendly entertainment to keep them entertained throughout the festival — not to mention a wicked carnival on the Sunday to top off the weekend. Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 6th November, 7pm. Early bird tickets sell out fast, so don’t miss out.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
