nce upon a time in the dim and distant past, babies stayed at home. Now we don't let a little baby stop us from going where we want when we want. And there is now so much which will help us to just that!

Obviously things like lightweight pushchairs and baby carriers help move babies around but many mums don't know about the many useful little items and this is where a good retailer can help. Tippitoes has host of useful products.

Chillipeeps have not been on the market long so many people have yet to hear of it, yet it is one thing that mums should have tucked away somewhere, in their bag, in the car (OK so they need at least two!!). And the yoomi can get the bottle of milk warm in 60 seconds. The TrendyKid PackIt cooler keeps everything cool until it is needed.

Being away from their usual place of sleep can have a detrimental effect on baby's sleeping habits, so things that put him in a darker environment cannot but help and if baby is sleeping, everybody is happier. See the solutions from Content and Calm, Snoozeshade and Outlook. And to ensure that no little accidents spoil the break, the Hippychick Mattress Protector is vital!!

Eating out with baby is another area which can be fraught with difficulty. A number of places now have highchairs available but this cannot be guaranteed and friends and family often don't keep spare highchairs. The Totseat means that baby is held safely and securely on a normal chair and the Kaboost will raise it to a better height. Or use Minene's Mibooster cushion.

Finally, there are all the things needed for a great time on the beach......see what Koolsun can offer!

Let's make the most of summer!

The ultimate travel accessory

The revolutionary Chillipeeps teat solves a common problem experienced by many when out and about with young hungry babies and no clean sterilised bottle to use.

Ideal for travelling, days out, shopping trips and holidays abroad, the ingenious Chillipeeps re-usable teat screws on to most water bottles or cartons to provide a baby friendly drink wherever a family finds itself!

The teat comes in an ultra-compact, sealed pod (the same size as a dummy pod) that is small enough to fit in handbags and changing bags and ensures a sterile environment on the go.

The BPA free, vari-flow teat has two adaptors – one that allows it to screw into cartons and one that allows it to screw on to most water bottles. The teat allows slow, medium and fast flow making it suitable from 3 months plus.

Designed by a mum, Chillipeeps couldn’t beeasier to use and re-use! Dishwasher proof – they are super easy to keep clean between uses, and when the time comes to use them they fit on to bottles and cartons in a matter of seconds.

A true ‘must have’ for under £6, Chillipeeps reassures parents that they will always be able to give their little one the drinks or nourishment they need, wherever they are. Importantly, it also does this in the simplest, safest, most hygienic and convenient way possible!
