My Baba Measure: What’s Hot This Week

Sleep Check App

SleepCheck is a brand new, clinically proven health screening app for sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is condition when your breathing stops and starts while you sleep. This can cause lots of health problems in including heart disease, hypertension, stroke and type 2 diabetes.

SleepCheck acts as a screening test to determine the user’s risk of obstructive sleep apnoea. The analysis report scales user’s risk from low to very high. In the event of a medium – a high-risk result, the app encourages the user to consult a doctor for further analysis and treatment.


Walking Home for Christmas

Walking Home For Christmas is a charity that supports ex-military facing mental health battles. The charity challenges us to step out of our comfort zone and to walk somewhere important to them in support of Britain’s ex-military. The event will be taking place from Thursday 10th to Sunday 20th December.

Assome! Starter Kit

Assome believes that all women should be comfortable with their bodies, and have the confidence to show them. Their 3 in 1 Massager uses Ultrasonic Technology to achieve deep cellulite reduction, as well as radiofrequency to firm and slim the body and LED to smooth the skin. Results can be seen after using the massager for just five minutes, three times a week. You can hope to see skin elasticity improving by 8.5% after just one month, and after 3 months, your skin will look up to 36% firmer, more lifted and younger!

Cellulite is a condition that affects up to 98% of women, causing dimpled, lumpy skin texture on the bottom and thighs. The effect it has on women’s self-esteem can be extremely damaging, causing stress and anxiety. It is caused by fat deposits pushing through the connective tissue beneath the skin, which is what gives the skin a dimpled texture. Many products on the high street claim to remove it but make little or no difference further adding to the frustration of women affected.



Snag Tights

Whatever you size and shape, Snag has a pair of tights to fit you, with sizes ranging from 4 to 36. The range consists of all-inclusive skin tones, sheers and fishnet styles.

Their unique sizing matrix means every person can find their perfect fit – no matter height, size, or build. An elastane waistband and flat seams mean no more rolling down or sagging at the gusset! We LOVE their kid’s range too.

Kidsmas Campaign, Barnardo’s

Barnardo’s has brought back it’s Kidsmas campaign to help people rediscover the magic of Christmas while raising vital funds for vulnerable children in the UK.

Although Christmas is a magical time for many children, there are also thousands of vulnerable children across the UK struggling. The effects of the coronavirus crisis are making this struggle even worse with abuse, poverty, bereavement, mental health issues and loneliness on the rise in the wake of the pandemic, depriving many vulnerable children of the chance to enjoy this very special time of year.

The charity is calling on people from across the UK to get involved to help bring the magic of Christmas to the thousands of children, young people and families the charity supports through various virtual parties, Kidsmas quizzes and snowman fundraising pages.

Get behind Kidsmas this Christmas and raise money to support more children facing poverty, loneliness and harm.

Bedtime Baby

Brighton-based West End Artist Louise Dearman will be releasing her latest album Bedtime Baby this December.

The lullaby album consists of 13 tracks, complemented by sounds of ocean waves and the pitter-patter of rainfall; Bedtime Baby is a modern take on some of the classic children’s songs we all know and love. After exhausting the meditation and ocean waves options online, Louise took it upon herself to fill a gap in the market, which was an album for you and your baby to relax and unwind to.

All around us, nature is working wonders. Every day, hour by hour, magical transformations happen right in front of you. But it’s not always easy to see them…

Each story is told frame by frame, with facts and figures on more than 50 species of plants and animals. Then go outside and listen, and see what you find when you take the time to slow down.
