Must have style items for busy mums

mother and son


If you are a new mum, or expecting to be soon, and you are worried that your style halo might be about to loose its sparkle, here are five great maternity buys to ensure you will be in style heaven, even after the stork has made its delivery.

MY WINTER BOX from the fantastic Parisian maternity brand, Envie de Fraises, is a sleek collection of three maternity pieces that will see you through your pregnancy and into the months that follow. The kit includes a flattering, soft, long-sleeved dress with matching leggings and a contrasting wrap belt. The combination has that certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will add a touch of French chic to your maternity wardrobe.

The Babymel Big Slouchy changing bag looks as good on the outside as it is useful on the inside. Almost as cute as your new baby, this bag comes in a range of designs (including bang-on-trend tweed), has plenty of pockets inside and out and ingeniously tucks away a coordinated changing mat and insulated bottle cover.

If your new addition cries in the key of Hendrix, then the Super Cool Rock Star Baby Bib from Baby Moo’s could be just the job. With a black-and-white rock print front and a waterproof backing, your baby won’t lose style points when things get messy.

There is always room in your home for design that makes you smile. The Lawn Countertop Drying Rack from innovative Australian brand, Boon, will bring a breath of fresh air to your draining board. Styled to look like giant blades of grass, this handy mat with incorporated drip tray will efficiently hold all your baby accessories so that they can dry thoroughly and safely, making sure you won’t lose all those fiddly lids and attachments. And it doesn’t even need mowing.

Snuggling with your new baby is one of the pleasures of being a new mum, and to bring a little luxury to your cuddle time, what better than the Knitted Merino Wool Baby Blanket from Baa Baby. Made with pure Merino wool that is smooth next to the skin, these light, warm blankets come in a beautiful range of colours with a delicate diamond pattern and scalloped edge. The open texture and soft knit will help to keep baby comfortable and cosy in timeless style.
