Our top picks to keep your tots stylish and cool for the summer!
Words Helen Baron
Mamas + PapasPerfect for the new season is this fun and oh-so-cute flamingo-print set from purveyors of baby must-haves, Mamas & Papas. Handily, it includes a baby vest, hat and this awesome seersucker striped romper; ideal for the summer. £22
Totter & Tumble
A more stylish alternative to overwhelming patterns and fiddly, jigsaw-style playmats are these Totter + Tumble ones. They’re reversible, wipe-clean memory foam playmats that come in a range of subtle patterns and cool, calming hues. £140
The brand’s latest summer collection does not disappoint. Earthy colours resurface while subtle tribal motifs appear on the soften rompers and tees (for both child and baby). Only locally-produced resources and materials are used.
aden + anais
Nadia Ackerman of the Brooklyn-based Natchie Art Studio has teamed up with aden + anais to create an exclusive range. The Natchie collection includes blankets and swaddles, featuring hand-drawn images with a nautical theme.
Newbie have now added swimwear to their line of affordable baby essentials. The organic Swedish childrenswear store combines sustainability with tasteful designs, various unisex styles, as well as outfits for siblings. £14
Swedish accessory design brand Elodie Details makes beautiful everyday baby and toddler essentials. We adore the bow-detail sunhats, as well as the frilled and pierrot collar bibs. You’ll also find changing bags in the charming floral prints.
Petit Bateau has created a new outfit that simplifies dressing your baby. The new “bodyjama” in blue, pink or grey is a vest and long-sleeved babygrow that’s all-in-one and with fewer poppers to do up. Every little helps! £37
This brand epitomises Spanish bohemianism and that thread is carried out to adoring effect in these teensy baby leggings, perfected in a muted mustard tone. For more “paysan” chic see the rustic shirts and ribbed cardigans.
This lightweight, award-winning reusable swim nappy has a concealed water-resistant layer and leak-proof legs that offer containment while in the water (you may just need to add a nappy if swimming for long periods). £9.99
From bestselling author and midwife Clemmie Hooper comes How to Grow a Baby, a journal for first-time experiences. From the first kick in pregnancy to surviving night feeds, document all the highs and lows as a new parent. £10.99
