Rooomy Loves, For Babies

Rooomy’s Non-Nursery best finds for parents

 

In each issue of the magazine we have the Rooomy Loves feature.  My chance to share with you some brilliant finds which I think other parents will love, which are not related to your child’s bedroom.  Something for the home, a great gift maybe, a great book find or possibly something silly but fab.

 

IT’S NOT A PLAYMAT. . .

…It’s more of a rug. If you are looking for something for the baby to be on in your living space, be it lounge, kitchen or elsewhere then you need to check out these roll out mats from Totter and Tumble. Designed by a mum who knows that the foam playmats collect all the dirt and are tough to clean and that space can be needed for all the family to be on when hanging out on a hardwood or tiled floor. This is not a playmat, it is the size of a standard British rug. Designed as a simple, one piece, roll out, wipeable mat, with no fiddly pieces for crumbs to disappear down or be pulled apart. With 12 designs to choose from they are all stylish – reversible, subtle patterns and gentle colours to fit in with interiors and not overwhelm the senses. You’ll find them supportive – inspired by a luxury pilates mat, these playmats are a sealed slice of memory foam, making them tougher to rival a rug, but also perfect for adults home exercising too. Safe and soft to support and cushion tumbling little ones and safety tested to European toy standards, suitable from birth.

ESSENTIAL FOR A GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP

Sleeping bags will make your baby feel snuggly and safe when sleeping which means less waking, hopefully. Consider these as part of the bedding for the room and buy a few that really go with the fab sheets you’ve bought. Make sure you check the tog ratings for the season!

ART BABIES CAN ENJOY

Black and White! Babies love black and white, the contrast is so strong for their developing eyesight that they will be mesmerized. Great for stimulating their brain and even better if you want to enjoy a few still moments and maybe actually drink your tea or coffee before it gets cold. The Wee Gallery offer heaps of great monochrome accessories but these Art Cards have lots of different themes on offer, they can be looked through on car journeys, lined up along the edge of the cot when you need to nip to the loo, I know I’d buy at least two, one for home and one for the changing bag.

LOOKING GOOD

Baby grows for the win, little outfits can take a lot of effort and might well need changing after an hour, if you want to avoid the plain white baby grows and want to introduce some life to your babies wardrobe/drawer or basket, then check out our selection of top babygro’s.

Take particular notice of the Rainbow romper as The White Company are donating £10 from every romper sold to The Prince’s Trust and Refuge in equal portions.

SOFT AND SNUGGLY

Sheepskin is wonderful for babies, the softness for their sensory pleasure and comfort, with its magical ability to keep them cool when it’s hot and warm when it’s cold. A must for newborns, sheepskin naturally traps air between its fibres creating a cosy micro-climate, while in warmer conditions, moisture is drawn away from the skin keeping babies dry and cool.  Medical studies have shown that babies settle quicker, cry less & sleep longer on a sheepskin.  The super soft, deep-pile, merino sheepskin liners from Bini Bamba will keep your big (little) softies cosy, seriously snugly and sleeping like a baby.

WEAN CLEAN

When it comes to feeding time let’s think, looking good and oh so practical and helpful, these floor mats for high chairs are waterproof, wipe-clean, and designed to protect any type of surface from spills, stains, and crumbs, providing peace of mind on top of a super stylish look. With 3 designs in 12 colour ways you’ll find something to suit your home.

BABY SOFT

Every parent wants the very best for the baby, we want to care for them and make sure they are happy and comfortable at all times. Bathing them to start can make some of us nervous, we want to wash them but we are conscious of how precious and delicate their skin is. Natural sponge can be very expensive and other products may seem too harsh, that’s why these super-soft bamboo wash cloths from Cuddledry and are just what you and your baby need.

TUMMY PLAY

Tummy time can happen naturally, or you might find putting your baby on their front very awkward to watch. My eldest was not a fan and my youngest just threw herself over. With  all things in life motivation is helped with incentive. A fab play mat toy like this from Done by Deer provides your babe with something to fiddle with, reach for, check out and interact with. This little croc is a great, fun character and of course will be a huge help in the pushchair too.

DAD PAD

An essential guide for new dads, developed with the NHS. New dad’s will feel excited, but they can also feel left out, unsure or overwhelmed. The DadPad can help by giving them knowledge and practical skills that they need. The resource will support you and your partner to give your baby the best possible start in life. This great guide will help reduce dad’s anxiety helping him get involved and gaining in confidence. He’ll learn how to create a strong bond and healthy attachment with their baby and to build a stronger family relationship by sharing the load and learning how to parent together, recognise the signs of postnatal depression in both yourself and your partner, and learn how to get help early. The DadPad was created by a Dad with the NHS in a hope to make information more accessible and less overwhelming than all the parenting books.

Rooomy Loves – Teens

This feature is the breath of fresh air, it’s the break from the norm, it’s when Rooomy gets to share great finds that are nothing to do with interiors, but that I’m confident you’ll love!  Taken from Issue 9, the Teen Edit, here are some great gift ideas for teens.  

Teen Breathe Magazine

Being a teen has NEVR been easy, we remember what it was like still, right? 

With lockdown in place life for teens just became a lot harder in a way we do not understand. 

All the same dramas still apply, social awareness, exam pressure, self-image and the rest. And as we know the last decade has made it a whole lot harder for them, and us parents with the explosion of social media. I won’t list all the downsides, there are simply too many; in a nutshell, their brains are not developed enough to cope with social media, however now it comes into its own as a great way to stay in touch with their friends when contact is not allowed.  What a conundrum.

How do we help them manage some sort of balance?

Enter Teen Breathe, a magazine jam packed with ideas, articles and tips to help your teen explore how to pay attention to everything they do, because being curious and staying positive can bring out the very best. A person who’s comfortable and proud in their own skin, is open to ideas and follows their dreams. It’s a bi-monthly publication and you can get your subscription here.

 

Ultimate Ears – Megaboom 3

Music, the key to most teenagers’ hearts. For decades teens have been plugged into Walkman’s, discmans, iPods and now it’s wireless headphones.

I wanted to find a gadget that means they can share their music with their friends, maybe even family or at least just listen in the solace of their room, without having to put headphones in or on. I came across this great find from Ultimate Ears. Their Megaboom 3 is a Bluetooth speaker balancing features, sound quality and value better than any of its rivals, with an impressive 20-hour battery life and the ability to stereo pair and daisy chain with other UE speakers.

Perfect for solo enjoyment or creating more of a party! Oh, and it’s water proof and comes in 8 colour options!

 

 

Boom Creations Ltd – Memory Box Frame

A great gift for your teen or their friend or the niece or nephew that you just don’t know what to get for their birthday. They can keep all their precious memories and souvenirs in this amazing wall mounted scrap book!  The unique top loading frame allows you to store all your keepsakes in one safe place. A unique gift for Birthdays, travel, tickets stubs and programmes!

 

Secret Projects – Secret Pillow

Friendships become number one priority for teens. Which means parties must be attended, staying away will happen a lot more and sleepovers at home may increase too. In the spirit of supporting this development and not wanting to be scrambling around for extra bedding when they bring all their friends’ round at the last minute, then these secrete pillows will become your ally.

With loads of colour options, they provide a cushion all year round and in emergencies roll out into a much-needed blanket! 

The best part is you’ll be supporting an incredible project in India, allowing women who face social and economic challenges to make their own money I a safe environment whilst receiving training, material and support from Secrete Projects, currently working across six Indian states. 

 

 

Emily Brooks – Sticky Notes

Stationary! There is so much awesome stationary about, but these sticky notes by Emily Brooks jumped out at me because of their mini calls to action; You Got This, Love This Idea and Don’t Forget. A phrase we hear more and more is that our brains are like an internet browser, too many tabs open. Organisation is key and it’s great if they can learn young! I love the bright positive colours and the more mature illustrations, no emoji’s to be found here.

If you like what you see here make sure you’re following us on our socials for your chance to win a great gift bundle including some of these items, in our Edit End Giveaway, coming soon.
