PUMP IT UP
The latest Yoomi breast pump is the first to offer electric, battery-powered and manual pumping in one model – and the one-touch system saves your settings for the next use. Its also ultra quiet so you can pump with discretion.
TRIED AND TESTED
This little beauty is a bit of a name in the stroller world, with several awards under its belt and a reputation for being practical, reliable and downright stylish.
The key benefit of the Giggle 2 system is its three-in-one nature: the lightweight, easily foldable and extremely compact stroller can easily be transformed into a handy infant carrier and pram for newborns. Most of us mamas err on the side of heavyweight prams or huge strollers with carrycots in those earliest of days, but experience tells many of us that keeping things light and manoeuvrable is usually the wiser bet. The Giggle 2 for that without sacrificing comfort or security.
Another big draw for many will be the sheer variety and boldness of the colourways and patterns, from monochrome stripes and stars to rainbow mosaics and fun, illustrative prints. Moreover, it comes with not just a rain-cover but a Cosy Toes muff, a substantial UPF50+ hood and even a shoulder bag with handy changing kit – all in all, excellent value.
