July Product of the Month: The Parent & Baby Coach

This month, we’re looking to one of the important things ever when it comes to being a new parent – SLEEP! More than ever before, there is so much controversy and free advice online – and it can be hard to know where to turn.

Having a new baby is one of the most magical, overwhelming and exhausting experiences in a lifetime. Whilst adapting to having a little person who relies entirely on you it can be a shock to learn that actually the phrase “sleep like a baby” maybe isn’t actually the reality of having a new bundle in your arms.

Many new parents often remark on the lack of sleep advice in antenatal classes, meaning parents are often underprepared for both what sleep looks like in the newborn days, as well as how best to deal with it.

A New Style of Antenatal Support

parent-baby-coachThat’s where The Parent and Baby Coach’s online courses come in. With three online courses tailed specifically for newborns, babies from five-12 months and toddlers, you can access information and advice from one of the UK’s leading baby sleep coaches, right from the comfort of your own home.

The Parent and Baby Coach online sleep courses provide parents with a variety of different ideas and approaches to help support their baby’s sleep, without judgement, shame or parents feeling as though they are backed into a corner. Parents are encouraged to use their gut instinct when deciding how to go about sleep.

The Parent and Baby Coach recognises fully that sleep is a huge pillar of maternal mental health, and helps support new parents by putting in slow and steady sleep practices from the early weeks onwards which helps enhance a baby’s sleep and creates confidence in parents too.

The courses are all about empowering parents with information so that they can create healthy long term sleep habits for the whole family.

It’s Not About Crying

One of the biggest concerns of many parents is that by getting help with a baby’s sleep, it means closing the door on them until the morning and leaving them to cry. As a sleep coach with over 11 years experience, Heidi from The Parent and Baby Coach is hugely passionate that this is not what you need to do, in order to get some more sleep.

Whilst there are some advocates of cry it out, The Parent and Baby Coach offers a range of sleep solutions including approaches which involve not leaving your baby at all, to approaches that have a turnaround of only a couple of day, which can involve giving baby space to settle for a few minutes before retuning to them. All of the approaches are designed with each family’s specific parenting style in mind.

A Truly Holistic Approach

parent-baby-coachThe use of the word holistic in baby sleep is very much a buzz right now but at The Parent and Baby Coach, sleep has been holistic for much longer than it has just been a trend for. When working on sleep, you are encouraged to look into all areas of your baby’s sleep – not only just the way in which they settle.

Heidi is a renowned expert in baby reflux, so focuses heavily on a baby’s feeding and any underlying tummy issues to help her clients get to the bottom of exactly why their baby’s sleep is broken.

Quality of 1-1 Support for the Price of a Course

The Parent and Baby Coach online courses cover everything you need to know as a parent to improve your little ones sleep, without the price tag of a one-to-one consultation.

Heidi is passionate about trying to reach as many new parents as possible, making them accessible and helping everyone move towards a full night’s sleep as and when they are ready.

Heidi is a mother of two boys and knows full well how it feels to be juggling modern-day motherhood with working and all that comes with having a full life and small children!

June Product of the Month: Inglesina’s Electa Travel System

This month, we’re looking to Inglesina’s latest award-winning travel system, Electa, which condenses a carrycot, stroller, stand and car seat into a compact, lightweight system. Designed for the non-stop pace of families living in the city, the Electa is easy to manoeuvre while boasting effortless style and comfort.

Electa in Tribeca Green

Incredibly lightweight

The Electa’s stroller weighs in at just 8.7kg, while the chassis is only 5.5kg. Whether you’re lifting it on-and-off public transport, carrying it up and down stairs, or just packing it into the car boot, the lightness of the Electa makes it feel effortless.

Surprisingly compact

Other travel systems’ designs are often heavy and clunky. Inglesina’s solution is sleek and compact, with a chassis that folds down to just 73.5 x 50cm when closed – the size of a small suitcase!

inglesina-electa-travel-systemEasy to use

The Electa’s one-hand fold allows you to easily fold and unfold the system, all without the handle or fabric parts touching the ground. Plus, its state-of-the-art chassis and generous wheel dimensions make it easy to manoeuvre.

Italian style

Made in their factory in Vicenza, Italy, the Electa boasts the elegant Italian style of Inglesina’s products. With high-quality fabrics in a modern design, the travel system is available in three stylish colours: Greenwich Silver, Tribeca Green, and Upper Black.

With Inglesina, you can be sure that your little one’s comfort and wellness are always of the utmost priority. The Electa is no exception. The large, spacious carrycot allows room for little ones to grow and stretch, while the stand-up offers easy transportation to the nursery without disturbing their sleep.

In addition to this, the patented Welcome Pad mattress – designed by the Neonatal Department of the University of Bologna – ensures little ones are resting with their hips aligned and their posture correct.

Just mum

When you are not babywearing, you just remove the insert and you are ready to go for as long as you want. NUMBAT GO is made to last for years!

Pregnancy jacket

In the last stages of pregnancy, where you can’t close your jacket anymore, just zip in the insert, and voilà, you have room for your baby bump.

As all the Wombat & Co. London babywearing coats, the NUMBAT GO central panel comes with cinchable strings that help adapt the coat to the size of your bump throughout the pregnancy.
