The best things for your newborn come from Hippychick

Hippychick cellular blankets are perfect for your newborn

Cellular blankets are perfect for your newborn 

Preparing for your baby’s arrival can be the most wonderfully exciting part of your journey through pregnancy, particularly when you still have the luxury of time on your hands.   

A good stop off point for gathering some of the essentials is Hippychick, an established, family-run business, founded by mother of three Julia Minchin, and which has developed a well-deserved reputation for its stylish, innovative and exceptional quality nursery accessories that have been developed by parents for parents. 

The exquisitely designed range of ‘Abeille’ cellular blankets, available from Hippychick, are a must for baby’s first few weeks of life. 

These gorgeously soft, 100% cotton, classics are currently available in three stylish, under-stated shades – dove grey, ivory and soft white with three further colours on the way. 

As with all things Hippychick, Abeille blankets are not just about style and good looks. Cellular blankets are the only blankets recommended by midwives for newborns as their unique construction traps air, enabling babies to maintain a constant body temperature whether it’s cold or warm, without danger of over-heating or suffocation. 

Their soft composition is also ideal to sit directly next to a new born baby’s delicate skin. 

Abeille blankets are presented in a beautifully stylish presentation box, making them an ideal gift as well. 

Introducing Nattou soft toys and furnishings

Nattou is a gorgeous soft toy and furnishings collection, based on a series of lovable characters. The latest characters to join the Nattou party are Jack, Jules and Nestor .

Jack the elephant and Jules the bear embark on an incredible journey and, on route, meet up with a cute little duck called Nestor to become a trio of beautiful, best friends. 

Choose from several different items in the range including mini and large Doudous, cot mobiles, cuddly and musical toys as well as a growth chart.  Or why not push the boat out with a Nattou sofa or Rocker to add comfort and style to the nursery?

The new collection, as with all other characters in the Nattou range, is distinguishable by its warm, welcoming and unisex colour palette in this instance, a combination of aquas, greys and turquoise.

Bumpsters – a great solution for active sleepers

Hippychick Bumpsters are a vital element for a newborn and safely protect active sleepers from accidental bumps. 

The bumpers wrap around each individual cot bar, softening hard edges whilst still allowing air to circulate.  Look out for the latest, twinkling star design which is available in three stylish colour combinations - red and blue for boys, pinks for girls and greys for both.
