From baby sleep pods and toddler safety to Michelin-starred street food and ethical beauty choices, here’s what the My Baba team are loving this week
BABY SLEEP: Sleepyhead’s sea-inspired collection
Sleepyhead, the sleep specialists who invented the baby sleep pod, a safe sleep space for 0-8months, has unveiled a range of pods inspired by the Mediterranean sea. The new collection, Mediterraneo, dives into dreamy coastal towns and beaches with waves, watercolours and architectural curves. The Sleepyhead Deluxe+ offers a comfy spot for sleeping, playing, cuddling and tummy time.

STROLLERS: the Peg Perego Ypsi
For city dwellers, the Yspi stroller offers the agility to navigate narrow spaces and busy streets. It’s lightweight and only 51cm wide, making it small and convenient but it doesn’t compromise on features with added shopping basket, rain cover and padded pushchair apron. With an eco-leather and an overall polished look, the Peg Perego Ypsi Stroller is stylish yet practical.

DINING OUT: Cook Love at Dinerama
Charlotte Street’s Michelin-starred restaurant Pied a Terre has stepped onto the street food scene as part of Dinerama, the street food market in Shoreditch. The aim of the Cook Love street food stall is to make Michelin Star food more accessible. For David Moore, founder of Pied a Terre, Cook Love is the way they can “keep evolving as a business” and learn about the “changing demands of customers”. Dishes start from £5 and are all cooked in a custom oil drum barbecue, which gives them an irresistible smokey flavour. Currently on the menu are wood fired scallops, Oxford sandy and black pulled leg of pork in a brioche bun, and classic cacio e pepe (spaghetti with pecorino cheese and black pepper). We tried them all — you definitely will not be disappointed.

CHILD SAFETY: Fred Safety’s stove and hob guard
Cook safely and without worry of your children accidentally touch the hob with stove and hob guard. The guard is quick and easy to assemble and protects the front and sides of your hob from curious little fingers. The stylish guard remains cool to the touch and even resists a toddler hanging from it! After you’ve finished using it, pop into the dishwasher for easy cleaning.

BEAUTY: the Blush & Blow salon and beauty bar
Our new favourite beauty and blow-dry hangout Blush & Blow will leave you groomed to perfection through its huge range of fabulous skincare and hair treatments. The Fulham salon tailors all of its treatments around your needs and the look you’re hoping to achieve. I booked in for some eyelash extensions and explained to the beautician that I wanted to keep them natural-looking but build on my look. Just over an hour later, I emerged with longer, thicker lashes that I immediately fell in love with.
