Editor-at-large, Kate Freud, rounds up the latest baby news, new parent must-haves and the baby brands you need to know about this month.
As we draw a close on Organic September – a month focusing on sustainability and the organic movement – for this edition of my Baby News column, I thought it apt to shine a spotlight on the brands with sustainability at the forefront. Not only is Newbie’s new collection made from 100% sustainable organic cotton, but it’s also inspired by nature’s colour scheme, with autumn hues galore. The enchanting Wild Wood range features beautifully hand-drawn woodland creatures designed by the Newbie team in Sweden with a squirrel, owl and flower prints making this collection just perfect for the season.
Boden gives back
Fashion brand Boden has teamed up with the brilliant charity Baby Basics, to support vulnerable families with baby and children’s clothing donations. From this month, Boden will be encouraging customers to make donations of ‘pre-loved’ baby and children’s clothes from 0 – 6 years to Baby Basics by providing pre-paid postage labels to all Mini Boden customers. And with the current COVID situation, this charity’s work has never been more crucial.
Snug to stroll
With autumn just around the corner, what better time to invest in one of Tiba + Marl’s natty new handmuffs for your stroller. The seriously chic accessories come in three colourways, including their signature camo and mono leopard prints with bespoke hardware. The water-resistant nylon fabric and super soft fleece lining mean your mitts will stay dry and toasty too.
If, like most mums, you’re short of time then don’t fret, as the newly launched brand Mia & Ben produce organic baby food that’s as good as homemade. They use the freshest, organic ingredients, to create purees with all the taste, texture, flavour and goodness of home cooked food. Little ones will love the Banana, Mango and Pineapple and Sweet Potato, Pear, Butternut Squash and Beetroot varieties and older kids will love their delicious smoothies.
