The Little Pip Reviews: 8 favourite nursery pieces
December 20, 2016
I wanted to do a round up of some of my favourite pieces for the nursery – these are some of the things that I use every day and cannot recommend more highly. I have been working with some of these brands and have or will be doing full review posts but in case anyone was doing any sales shopping or similar, I thought I’d post a brief round up below.
1 | Tiba & Marl Etta changing clutch – I love this versatile little bag because I can keep all the kit loaded inside and it can go into whatever bag we take out, or often lives underneath the buggy so whoever is taking out the baby knows it is there.
2 | Coco & Wolf changing mat cover – no one likes a cold bot when having their nappy changed and this one is in a gorgeous Liberty print that works well in the nursery. I would have everything in Liberty print if I could afford it or get away with it!
3 | Back in Action nursing chair – we were gifted this chair to review and we absolutely love it. Ergonomically designed and incredibly stylish, we actually have this in our sitting room where my husband loves sitting in it as much as I do. It seems to keep the body warm whilst being a very soothing place to sit and feed the baby and then gently rock him to sleep. Not yet online but buy through their shop…
4 | Done by Deer muslin squares – a myriad uses and not the usual white. I brought these back from Copenhagen last year when all I could find here were white or pastel colours, since then the UK seems to have cottoned onto Danish brands and these are now even available on Amazon!
5 | Poco Baby Hammock – one of our favourite new born products and about which my husband is particularly enthusiastic. Fabulous for rocking the baby to sleep and so easy to transport that we used to take it to other people’s houses for dinner and pop Buster to sleep in it. I actually cried when he started rolling and therefore we had to stop using it. Made nap times a bit easier all round.
6 | Cybex Priam Changing Bag – I was gifted this by Priam but actually use it pretty much every day and I think it might be the best changing bag I’ve used so far (and I’ve tried a few). I particularly like that it is plain and looks rather like a handbag but also comes with little clips to attach to the buggy, or a shoulder strap, all of which are detachable and work well. I also love that there is a wet interior pocket which I use to store my WaterWipes which seem to constantly leak as well as lots and lots of space. It is also easy to access when hung off the buggy, and there is a pocket inside which fits my laptop. I have to admit to taking it to work as my work bag for the KIT days I have been in for recently…
7 | Grobag Travel Orla Kiely Boats Sleeping Bag 2.5 Tog I am also a massive Orla Kiely fan and so was delighted to be gifted this Grobag. We have another one in a different pattern which I bought for Pip at the same age and Buster alternates between the 2 – I adore the boat pattern and he loves how warm and snuggly it is. I also love the fact it fits a 5 point harness as I quite often load him into the buggy in it in the morning for the school run and let him have his morning nap all snugged up outside whilst I sort some emails and have a coffee.
8 | Stokke Sleepi – we were gifted this for review by Stokke but having had Pip sleep in our friend’s one in Copenhagen it would have been our choice of cot. Full review post will be coming soon but we absolutely love this. Does the Stokke Sleepi come with mattress I wondered, and the answer is an amazing yes! It comes rolled up and vacuum packed in the box and unfurls. So easy to put together, so stylish and cosy and best of all, perfect for small spaces: we can fit it into our room where we thought we couldn’t fit a full sized cot because the oval shape means more bed space for Buster but less floor space used for us. I also love that it can start as a mini crib and end up as a toddler bed, growing with your child. It looks so appealingly cosy I have been tempted to crawl in myself – if that wasn’t high praise, I don’t know what is!
This post is not sponsored but we did receive some of the items for review however only the pieces that I love and would recommend are included.
