Every month we bring you the coolest things to know about, guaranteed to keep the kids busy and the parents happy. From an educational app to a need to know brand, here’s what is worth having on your radar.

M&S Maternity Collection

For stylish and supportive maternity wear, you can rely on Mark and Spencer’s new collection. Full of floaty jersey dresses, practical nursing tops and smart basics like t-shirt dresses and indigo-washed jeans, the range has mums to be covered for every occasion, from a Zoom call to a Sunday brunch. Plus, there’s also a wide range of comfortable and reliable nursing bras. 


Tiba & Marl Handmuffs

Keep your hands warm as the winter chill sets in with these quilted hand muffs from Tiba & Marl. Available in a simple black, monoprint leopard or camo design, the stylish covers slip easily over pram handles and keep your hands cosy and dry while out and about. A must-have winter accessory for mums and dads. 


9 Months In Sézane

French brand Sézane has launched a chic new maternity collection to see you through your first trimester and beyond. Full of stylish, feminine and easy to wear pieces – think broderie anglaise blouses, slogan tees and versatile knitwear – it has everything soon-to-be mums need for an autumn/winter wardrobe refresh. 

Visit Sé

Bobana Store

Get little ones winter-ready with these cosy sweatshirts and sleepsuits from under-the-radar brand Bobana Store. We love the ‘Paris’ and ‘Chocolate’ slogan pullovers, as well as the cherry print bodysuits with matching bunny ears hats. Crafted in super soft cotton and with handy poppers, they’re both cute and practical. 


Thinx Postpartum Set

Thinx, the brand behind sustainable and absorbent underwear, has now launched a postpartum set. Available in sizes XXS to 3XL, the pack includes five comfy high-waisted briefs crafted from soft nylon and organic cotton. Each pair has been designed to leave new mums feeling protected and confident, and can be popped in the washing machine after each use. 


BellaMoon Nursing Nests

The award-winning BellaMoon nests have been specially designed to support you and your baby during breastfeeding. Allowing new parents to rest, nurture and bond with their little one, they feature anti-roll fins and soft barriers to ensure your baby is kept safe, as well as comfy cushioning to support your back and neck during feeding time. 


My Wardrobe HQ Kids

Fashion rental services are big news this year, and one of the most popular online destinations, MyWardrobe, has expanded into childrenswear. Sign up to be able to rent adorable outfits from brands such as Marie-Chantal and The Middle Daughter that both you and your little ones will love. 


Nestlums App

This app helps teach children about digital money and banking in a child-friendly and safe environment. Kids can take part in a selection of games and educational tasks, which follow the Nestlums creatures as they count virtual coins, save pocket money and complete numeracy challenges. Suitable for ages 10 and under, the app only costs 99p and is available on both iOS and Android. 


Cam Cam Copenhagen

Danish brand Cam Cam Copenhageden is an SL favourite for both sleep and play. Founded in 2012 by ex-architect Sara Giese Camre, expect to find everything from pretty cot bed linen to pastel-coloured wooden kitchens in the latest collection. We especially love the floral printed play tent, which also doubles up as a baby gym. 


Nimble Milk Buster

Nimble’s Milk Buster will leave sippy cups, utensils and breast pumps perfectly clean. Free from chemical nasties and made entirely with plant-based ingredients, it promises to remove milk proteins and fats from plastics safely and easily. Available in 200ml or 600ml bottles, as well as a handy refill for when you’re running low. 


Gelpop Hand Sanitizer

Let children customise their hand sanitizer bottles with these fun covers from Gelpop. Each colourful holder is made out of durable and environmentally friendly silicone and comes with a refillable sanitiser tube. Clip them on to school bags or buggies, or pop them into lunch boxes as a gentle reminder to keep hands clean.
