My Bambini’s make insulated bottle warmers to keep milk or drinks warm on the go. The cordless battery-powered bottle warmer heats up milk to your desired temperature and keeps it warm for up to six hours. Compatible with most baby bottle brands, simply attach the device to an empty bottle and wait ten minutes for it to warm up before pouring in the drink. Easy and safe to use, it’s a must-have for busy parents. My Bambini’s also have a small selection on baby essentials, too, like handheld blenders, baby carriers and nappy changing bags.
DearBump was created by three women frustrated by the lack of information and support for new mothers in the workplace. The team is currently crowdfunding a new project to support women on maternity leave and those returning to work – think wellbeing technology like automated check-ins and digital support throughout pregnancy and beyond. To support the cause, you can purchase a DearBump subscription for yourself or a friend (£25pm), which includes monthly boxes curated for each stage of pregnancy and designed to take care of early symptoms like morning sickness right up to preparations for birth and early motherhood. Customise your box with wellbeing and beauty products, including candles, essential oils, parenting books and sweet treats.
Evereden was created by entrepreneur Kimberley Ho and developed by ‘Moms in Medicine’, a team of dermatologists who are also mothers. The ‘multi-generational’ skincare range has products for parents and babies, from stretch mark cream and massage oil to fragrance-free shampoo and body wash. Specially formulated for sensitive skin, ingredients are chosen based on their ability to soothe and nourish skin, like anti-inflammatory sunflower seed oil, nourishing avocado oil and soothing centella asiatic. The Golden Belly Serum can be used all over, wherever your body needs a bit of extra hydration.
My Little Cocoa Podcast
Two years ago, TV presenter Rochelle Humes launched My Little Cocoa, a collection of skincare and hair products for littles ones and parents. In this new podcast, Rochelle talks openly about parenthood, what she’s learnt along the way, and what she’s still figuring out. Each week, she’s joined by a different guest to discuss a range of topics, from raising a large family to dealing with parental guilt. Don’t miss the episode with rapper Tinie Tempah on the importance of teaching children about their heritage.
The Plantable Children’s Book By Willsow
Keen to get the children out in the garden? This book encourages little ones to connect with nature through different stories, activities and seeds to grow a variety of herbs and vegetables. Children will love the friendly veggie characters dotted throughout the book, which are designed to teach them about sustainability, eating seasonally and being kind to animals and insects. The Plantable Children’s Book is also eco-friendly, too – made from recycled paper and natural cotton, you can be rest assured you’re doing your bit for the planet.
Play & Go Storage Bags
Stylish storage solutions for kids are hard to come by, so we were impressed when we discovered Play & Go. The brand specialises in soft play mats which also double up as toy storage bags with a drawstring tie. Little ones can store their favourite items in once place, then open the mat when they want to play. There are five new colours to choose from, including a roadmap bag with the sights of Paris. Shop the full collection to browse dinosaur prints, rainbows, stripes and animals.
Skwad Kombo Kit
Skwad is a skincare line for teenagers. Founded by mother-of-three Elise who struggled to find gentle skincare for her children that wasn’t full of active ingredients and didn’t irritate skin, the brand’s Skwad Kombo Kit (£90) contains an exfoliating cleanser, the SKWIRT Toning Sap spray, a protective moisturiser formulated with non-greasy oils, and a shaving mask. All the products come in a canvas bag made from recycled materials.

Mums Jo and Kate founded girls’ brand Athletica London after they struggled to find suitable activewear for their daughters. Designed in London and ethically made using soft, eco-friendly performance fabrics, the team designs activewear for girls aged seven to 14. The new collection includes leggings, hoodies, tees and tanks for sports and everyday. Everything can be mixed and matched to create a co-ordinated look, or worn alone for a colourful and comfy look – we like the striped hoodies and stretchy leggings.
