Stokke Tripp Trapp now available in storm grey

Stokke Tripp Trapp Storm Grey

We are all Stokke Tripp Trapp lovers here. The iconic seat has been doing it’s thing since 1972 and doing it well. Stokke have just introduced a rather chic grey to its colour collection – storm grey. I’m not going to go in to loads of detail because it is just a new colour and […]

Stokke MyCarrier Cool

Stokke MyCarrier Cool

We are already fans of Stokke’s MyCarrier so were interested to see the latest addition to the range, the MyCarrier Cool. It has the same three-way design – parent, outward and back positions – as the MyCarrier, but it is made with breathable mesh textiles, keeping you and your baby cool and dry for outdoor, active […]

Stokke Steps highchair


Coming soon to the UK is Stokke’s new highchair, Stokke Steps. Like the legendary Tripp Trapp (a firm favourite with us BG mamas), it grows with your child. The modular system offers a recliner, highchair and later, a chair that can be used throughout childhood, but unlike the Tripp Trap it doesn’t last a lifetime. It certainly […]

Stokke announces new orange and blue Tripp Trapp colours

New Tripp Trapp Colours - Orange and Blue

You know we all love the Tripp Trapp here and you know we’re all colour fiends, so when we see new shades announced for the iconic high chair, it makes us smile. A lot. Yesterday Stokke announced two new colours; Lava Orange and Aqua Blue inspired by the beautiful, bold palettes of the 1970’s. They will be in store […]

The pushchair track: Stokke Scoot

Stokke Scoot

Lola, the husband and I have just returned from a holiday in Florida where we gave the Stokke Scoot (one of their new connection strollers) a thorough workout. We are huge Xplory fans, but we loved it. Stokke hasn’t moved away from its ‘higher is better’ philosophy – in the Scoot your child is high enough to interact with […]

Five fab… slings and carriers for International Babywearing Week


It’s International Babywearing Week and we’re all big babywearers at BG, so I thought I’d share a few of my favourite slings and carriers. Babywearing has so many benefits for you (convenience, bonding, comfort) and your baby (security, closeness, sleep, relief from tummy problems) Back when I had Alfie (all of three and a half years […]

Stop the press! Huggle is online

Huggle NurseryWorks bookcase

Nat flagged up North London emporium Huggle as a must-visit destination when it opened back in late 2010. And now *drum roll* you can peruse the store’s delights at your leisure from the comfort of your sofa. Make sure you’ve got a cup of tea and a stock of biscuits though as there’s a lot […]

Fave Baby

Betsy turns one today and while I’m busy marvelling at the speed a year flashes by I thought it would be fun to collect my absolute favourite baby products in one post. These are the products that see day in day out use from newborn to newly one, they work hard and have design credentials […]

Tried: Stokke Tripp Trapp Newborn Set

Stokke Tripp Trapp Newborn Set

As soon as the Stokke Tripp Trapp Newborn Set was released I was sold. My favourite highchair: suitable from birth bringing the baby into the heart of family meal times. When Betsy was born, knowing we were fans, Stokke very kindly sent her her own newborn set. As Betsy is now five months old and […]
