WHAT Dread eating out or visiting a friend’s place because you aren’t sure if there’s a high chair, so that you can feed your baby? The Totseat is the ideal solution as it converts almost all dining chairs of all shapes and sizes into a safe haven for your baby. It’s machine washable and comes with a tiny travel pouch. Suitable for babies from around 8 months to 30 months.
PARENTS SAY This simple and innovative idea solves all your highchair woes! “It’s is essential for me, as I eat out very often, and I know I am putting my child in something safe and clean,” says Christine Lew, mum to 11-month old Jessica. “It was especially useful during Chinese New Year, since we spent entire days visiting relative’s homes. No matter where we were, I could strap Jess down and feed her safely.”


OXO Tot Roll Up Bib

PRICE $18.90
FROM Pupsik Studio
WHAT If you’re in the process of weaning your baby, you’ll know that introducing solid food is a pretty messy affair. This OXO Tot bib is a fantastic solution ― since any food that doesn’t find its way into bubba’s mouth will fall into a wide and soft food-safe silicone pocket. This encourages your little one bubba to hone his fine motor skills and feed himself. Plus, it sure reduces the mess you might need to clean up. Available in five cheery colours.
PARENTS SAY This bib has an adjustable neck closure that is very comfortable on your baby. Since it’s BPA, PVC and phthalate free, the material is safe and non-toxic. You can even pop this easy-to-clean overall into your washing machine. Since you can roll up the bib, you can simply toss it into your diaper bag.


ClevaMama Splash & Wrap Baby Bath Towel

PRICE $34.90
FROM Mothercare
WHAT Babies aren’t easy to handle in the tub because they’re squirmy, wriggly and most of all, slippery! If you’re a bundle of nerves handling your baby in the bath tub, this towel will boost your confidence! Fasten it around your neck like an apron, then pick your baby up from the bath with two free hands. It comes with a hood, so you can cover your baby’s head to prevent him from catching a chill. Made of 100 per cent cotton, it’s gentle and absorbent on your baby’s skin.
PARENTS SAY Give your tyke a safe and secure feeling when you use this towel to pick him up from his bath. In addition, this bath sheet protects your clothes, so you won’t get all wet whenever you bathe your little one! We love how large and plush it is ― your baby will definitely be looking forward to bathtime!
