Who doesn’t love babies’ feet?! Inch Blue’s shoes have a soft suede sole for pre-walkers, or natural rubber sole for active toddlers to mimic that barefoot feeling and help their feet to develop and grow naturally.

myHummy teddies are the ultimate bedtime companions. Not only are they super cuddly but help babies (and their parents!) get their well-deserved sleep by emitting 5 types of white and pink noise – so clever! Our favourite features include: a Sleep Sensor that plays your chosen sound for 60 mins and restarts when any background noise is detected, a 12 hours non-stop mode, and a mobile App (Bluetooth models only). Even better, you can also now have these beautiful teddies personalised with the child’s name, making these the perfect gift!

3. Childs Farm
It’s not just us adults who love smellies for Christmas! Childs Farm have quickly become THE go-to brand for children’s bathtime products that little ones love, even those with sensitive and eczema prone skin. We especially love their adorable Baby Bedtime Suitcase, which contains four of their hero products that will leave your little one smelling wonderful and squeaky clean! The set also has a handy bath thermometer and comes in a beautiful little case that can be used again, so less packaging waste.

We all know how difficult young children can find eating with cutlery, it can be incredibly frustrating and messy, but it’s an essential skill that will help your little one become more independent and really enjoy mealtimes. Thankfully Doddl cutlery’s ergonomic design makes it easy, and their new baby cutlery (6+ months) means your baby can start developing their skills right from the start! Doddl’s short and compact handles are easy to hold and control, with expertly placed soft touch areas that help develop the strength of the pincer grip, a key motor skill your little one will need to help them hold a pencil or pen. Doddl will help your child eat independently, whilst teaching the correct grip to move on to adult cutlery when they are ready.

5. Rockit Rocker
Does your little one wake up as soon as the stroller comes to a halt? Rockit has thought of a smart way to stop those aching arms from continuous manual rocking with its Rockit Rocker. It’s a portable device that attaches to any stroller or pram and simulates the same side-to-side rocking motion that your baby feels when you are out for a walk. It even includes a speed dial so you can get the perfect gentle rock to keep your baby moving and snoozing. So useful for gaining the extra sleep time they need and allowing you to get more done!

6. Cheeky Chompers Chew Pack
Baby’s Christmas wouldn’t be complete without Cheeky Chompers to see them through their teething troubles! Our Chew Pack combines the award-winning Neckerchew and matching Comfortchew. Made from three layers of soft jersey cotton to keep little chins dry and rash-free, our Neckerchew will also give them something good to chew on. The Comfortchew is so cosy with the feeling of your little one’s favourite teddy from the fleece lining, as well as a teether for soothing sore gums and a handy strap for attaching to little one’s wrist, pushchair, or car seat. Christmas Day cuddles await!
