From the latest baby products, book releases, and kids’ toys, to a new radio show for dads, here’s a quick round-up of our discoveries this week.
The Swaddle UP Lite is an ultra-breathable sleep solution designed to ensure little ones drift off into cool and comfortable sleep, even in warmer climates.
The unique design encourages babies to sleep in their natural ‘arms up’ position, without restricting movement and the genius two-way zipper allows for quick and easy nappy changes with minimal fuss.

Dad’s Aloud, BBC Radio Wiltshire
Nothing is off the table in the new Wiltshire radio show, where four new dads shine a light on the highs and lows of becoming a father. Every week at BBC Radio Wiltshire these brave men will take the mic to discuss the sometimes bumpy road of fatherhood. They’ll be looking to share their joys, frustrations, and of course, epic parenting fails.
Tune in to BBC Radio Wiltshire online, on the BBC Sounds app, on DAB or at 103.6FM. The show will be available to listen to afterwards on BBC Sounds.

Introducing the new Baby Calming Comfort Range from Aveeno.
This range has been specially formulated to help parents create a calm and relaxing bedtime routine and to enable restful sleep for the whole family, not just for little ones.

Toy Of The Week
Tobi, Little Tikes
We’re already looking at 2020 Christmas list predictions, and we think this ultra-cool new Smartwatch from Little Tikes will be a huge hit this year.
The Tobi Robot Smartwatch is designed for kids aged 4+. It’s packed full of interactive features with a camera that can take selfies storing up to 3k pics of 30 minutes of video footage.
As you’d expect from Little Tikes, the watch is jam-packed with built-in action-packed play learning, augmented reality and motion games and activities. AND what we love about this most is that its choice of 50+ digital and analog clock faces will help kids learn to tell the time.
Priced at £49.99 we tip this to be on a lot of wish lists this year!
