<1> Baby Weavers Shuffle Car Seat, £39.99 (was £79.99)
This combination Group 0+/1 car seat fits from newborn to age four making it a great investment, as you don’t have to buy two separate seats. It transforms from rear to forward facing as your child grows, and has great features like a built in alarm system if your toddler attempts to undo the harness.
<2> Quinny Zapp Stroller, £100 (was £160) Snap up a great lightweight three-wheeler for the same cost as a more basic model. Suitable from six months the Zapp is perfect for nipping around town, taking on holiday and its sporty looks will win admiring glances from other mums (and dads).
<3> Phil & Teds Navigator, £309 (was £459)
This is the perfect pushchair for every growing family as you have the option to transform it into a double model. Great for toddlers and newborns alike the longevity is what makes this such a great buy – it’s roomy seat means even pre-schoolers can hop in if they need to rest their legs. I love this new blue shade too.
<4> Britax Kidfix Group 2/3 Car Seat, £79.05 (was £149.99)
Think your child just needs a booster seat after age four? Think again. A proper car seat makes sound safety sense until they reach at least 12. The superior side protection on the Kidfix will give every parent peace of mind for a really competitive price, and you have the flexibility to fix using ISOFIX or a seatbelt.
<5> Baby Weavers Cot, £84.99 (was £109.99)
Finding a cot under £100 that has useful features like a teething rail, drop side and a height adjustable base can be tricky – this one has all three! There’s also the added bonus of a half price Baby Weavers mattress making this a great must-buy package.
<6> Maxi-Cosi Pebble Car Seat, £119 (was £165)
An award-winning newborn car seat that is compatible with a vast range of pushchairs and prams – including the Quinny mentioned earlier. Use it as a car seat, part of a travel system and also as a handy carrier to transport your newborn around in comfort.
<7> Baby Weavers Wooden Folding Highchair, £49.99 (was £64.99) A classic wooden highchair that is a must for your baby’s first meals and looks amazing quality for the price. The wooden finish suits most decors and it folds away compactly for smaller kitchen and homes.
<8> Baby Bjorn Original Carrier (organic walnut), £49.99 (was £74.99)
A great chance to buy the Original carrier for under £50. Loved by celebrities such as Beyonce and Natalie Portman, carriers also have health and emotional benefits for babies as they encourage closeness and bonding. And they’re not just for trips out either, if you’ve got a fractious newborn and need to do the housework pop them into a carrier to soothe them on the go.
<9> BT Smart Audio Baby Monitor, £40.99 (£49.99)
