My Baba Measure: What’s Hot This Week

Where To Pick A Pumpkin This October: Locations All Over The UK

We’ve pulled together a list of UK locations where you and your little ones can pick-your-own pumpkin. Don’t forget to book tickets in advance!

Kei Jumpsuit, Owa Yurika

Owa Yukira was founded in London by Japanese mother-daughter duo, Yuki and Yuriko Oshima.

This gorgeous Jumpsuit is a unisex piece and made from quality Japanese denim. The jumpsuit offers a slouchy and loose fit, with a soft elasticated waistband sitting nicely on the body and there’s an easy access popper opening at the front.

A comfortable and cool outfit for a fun day out in winter.


Oh! Look! A Fox!, Boz Publications

Oh! Look! A Fox! is a unique children’s book that embraces neurodiversity, written from the perspective of the children who are wired differently.

This highly anticipated and unique children’s book launched during the ADHD awareness month 2020, bringing entertainment and relief to children, families and teachers. Award-winning Welsh filmmaker and content producer Nathan Erasmus collaborated with talented Polish illustrator Monika Dzikowicz, to release a new type of children’s book that embraces neurodiversity, written from the perspective of the children who are wired differently. The book has been created alongside medical professionals and offers a fresh and supportive alternative to parents and children that live with ADHD.


Original Pumping and Nursing Bra, Bravado Designs

Bravado Designs has launched a truly multi-purpose bra set to be a total game-changer for breastfeeding and pumping mums. The Original Pumping and Nursing Bra enables mums to breastfeed in comfort, be hands free when pumping, or do both at the same time!


Ergobaby X CARiFiT

Ergobaby customers can try out everything CARiFiT has to offer for themselves for FREE as they’ve teamed up for the next three months. Every carrier or wrap purchased from Ergobaby will include full access and online membership to CARiFiT for six weeks.

Vegan Soap Range, By Frankie

Frankie Campbell spent lockdown creating and then launching a vegan soap range that’s gentle for your hands and the environment. Each bar of soap is unique, and that’s because they’re all handmade using traditional methods. The soaps are scented with the finest natural butters, essential oils, botanical infusions and natural ingredients to ensure they are kind for your skin and our precious environment. There are eight different soaps to choose from and seven of them are vegan!


America’s leading Safe Sleep brand HALO has just launched here in the UK and it surely set to ruffle some feathers.

The SleepSack Swaddle and Sleeping Bag are already available and the innovative BassiNest will be available from the 8th of November. The HALO SleepSack Swaddle is the only swaddle that allows for swaddling three ways: arms in, hands-to-face and arms out. The BassiNest is the only bedside crib on the market that swivels 360 for safe, close sleep.

HALO was founded in 1991 by Bill Schmid who lost his firstborn to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). Schmid then made it his life’s mission to ensure another family wouldn’t have to experience the same tragedy.


New Watercolour Print, bbhugme

Bbhugme pregnancy pillow is now available in attractive watercolour prints, taking its inspiration from different forms of water and all that it symbolises. There are two new watercolour colourways, the watercolour blue (pictured below) and the watercolour beige.


How To Use Superfoods To Increase Fertility And General Wellbeing

Baby products, Baby Kingdom

Luxury baby skincare brand Baby Kingdom has some gorgeous baby products that are created with fresh, clean scents which leave babies smelling, well – like babies. These products are gentle enough to be used on sensitive skin to help ease symptoms of eczema, psoriasis and cradle cap and the products are 97% 99% natural and free from sulphates, parabens and other harsh irritants.

Bracelets, Bond Touch

Bond Touch is an ‘emotional wearable’ that keeps loved ones connected through touch (feels very apt right now given the current climate!).

Each Bond Touch order comes with two bands – you wear one and your partner/family member/friend wears the other. With a simple tap, your loved one feels a vibrating “touch” letting them know they are on your mind. You can even create your own secret codes to decipher what the touches mean, perfect for parents who are away from each other at night and don’t want to wake the baby!

There is a dedicated app to accompany the bands which creates a safe space for you and your loved one to message each other, with end-to-end encryption and messages expiring after 72 hours.


Muslin, Lexie Drew

We love Lexie Drew’s eco-friendly muslins. Made from 100% cotton they’re available in a range of beautiful prints.

Leopard Carrier, Fornessi

Eco-friendly baby brand Fornessi is the go-to wrap carrier for babywearing. All the fabrics for Fornessi products are specifically chosen for their softness, durability and most importantly, environmental sustainability.

You will hardly notice you have it on as the fabrics are so light and breathable. What’s more, you won’t have to worry about your baby overheating, especially in winter.  This gorgeous wrap carrier is light, durable and silky soft to touch cocooning your baby close. It creates a custom fit for you and your baby’s body shape, size and weight, whilst the wide straps ensure even weight distribution reducing pressure on your back. One size fits all (up to plus size).

Fully accredited by the International hip dysplasia institute it supports healthy hip development from birth and has been safety tested to the highest safety standards.


Playmat, The Singing Ant

The Singing Ant has launched a new range of artisan-inspired playmats, and we love them. The playmats are made up of rotatable non-toxic EVA foam tiles which easily slot together, interlocking to become a contemporary playmat in an instant.

Featuring a wipe-clean, soft surface these mats will not only look completely stunning in any home, they’re also perfect for babies and toddlers needing a soft and safe space to play. P.s – they’re also perfect for protecting your knees!

Headspace and Snap Inc

For World Mental Health Day Headspace has announced a collation with Snap Inc with the release of two new meditations.  Snapchat users will now have access to two new six-minute meditations, ‘Take on the School Year’ and ‘Choose Kindness’ both guided by Headspace’s Director of Meditation, Eve Lewis.

These are now available in The Headspace Mini within Snapchat and are intended to help users address their rising levels of stress.


#ReadySetCheck, Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month #ReadySetCheck has been launched to help busy mums find time to protect and prioritise their health. In light of the pandemic, time feels increasingly stretched, and, with high profile reporting of Covid-19, it’s easy to forget the importance of early diagnosis of breast cancer.

Yoopies, one of Europe’s leading childcare providers want to ensure Mums make the time to be checked with the peace of mind that childcare is covered. Whether it’s for a mammogram appointment or to see a GP after noticing an unusual change in their breasts, mums can claim two hours of childcare courtesy of Yoopies.

Please check out their website for details on how to access free childcare.

Bee 6, Bugaboo
