2018 Mother & Baby Awards

2018 Mother & Baby Awards

222 Days Ago.

We’re celebrating our success at the Mother & Baby Awards!

Given the Silver award for Best Cot, the East Coast Carolina Cot 20% smaller than a standard cot.

It’s not always easy for parents to fit a cot in their room for the first six months, so the space-saving size of the Carolina makes it ideal. Then when baby moves into their own room, their bed will still feel familiar. It’s also a great choice for a grandparents’ house or a small nursery. The Carolina is supplied complete with a foam mattress. It’s available in five colours: antique, white, grey, pink, and blue.

We also received a Bronze award for our Folding Highchair. This bestselling product is made of solid rubberwood and is available in a choice of three colours: naturalwhite, and white/grey.

360° Dreamer Rocker Review

360° Dreamer Rocker Review

307 Days Ago.

The 360º Dreamer Rocker is a comfortable place for baby to rest, play, and nap. If baby falls asleep in the rocker, the clever folding seat design allows you to gently lower them into a safe flat position without disturbing their dreams. The seat can swivel on its base, allowing you to rock baby front-to-back or side-to-side, or the rubber feet can be stabilised for no rocking. The removable toy bar features simple geometric-shaped toys that encourage baby to focus, strengthening their developing eye muscles. The Dreamer Rocker features adjustable vibration, which most babies find very soothing, along with a choice of musical tunes, nature sounds, and white noise.

The 360º Dreamer Rocker is part of the Rest & Play range, and features the stylish geometric Solitaire print with neutral grey and aqua trims. It includes waist and crotch straps to keep baby secure. It's suitable from birth to around 6 months / 9kg in Dreamer mode, and in Play mode. Suitable as a toddler seat (with the feet stabilised and toy bar removed) up to 15kg.

"When it comes to shopping for your new little baby, there are TONS of 'must-have' items that you will be told about. I was then introduced to the new 360° Dreamer Rocker by East Coast and I cannot recommend it highly enough."

“Say Hello” To Tummy Time Review

“Say Hello” To Tummy Time Review

346 Days Ago.

The Baby Lady has reviewed our “Say Hello” To Tummy Time, as part of the product testing for the Mother & Baby Awards.

“Say Hello” To Tummy Time is a padded mat, featuring a variety of sensory activities to help to hold your baby’s attention while they are on their front. Tummy time is essential for babies’ development, helping to strengthen their muscles, improving their coordination and getting them ready for crawling.

Some babies find being on their tummy unfamiliar and upsetting, so using a supportive cushion and an interesting mat can help them to enjoy it.
