10 best baby products


BT Baby Monitor 150: First-time parents worry about leaving their baby sleeping alone in the nursery. But monitors these days can allow you to feel when baby wiggles, or even watch your baby on screen, meaning very little downtime for mum and dad. This conventional BT baby monitor instead focuses on the basics; namely, sound quality, and a handy light meter indicates sound levels in the room. Still, this monitor still manages to pack in the features, including an inbuilt thermometer; polyphonic lullabys; and an MP3 plug-in to play baby your favourite chillout tunes. Where: www.bt.com/shop
Grobag Egg: This colour-changing thermometer looks like an instant design classic, but it has a serious purpose. Temperature is a known factor in that great unmentionable, sudden infant death syndrome (cot death), so it makes sense to keep a check on things. The egg lights up in various colours to indicate the temperature range (blue for too cold, orange for warm, red for too hot, yellow for just right) while a digital display shows the exact reading. Doubles as a soft nightlight. Where: www.safetots.co.uk
Brio Sleep: This wonder of a cot will see your child from birth up to her fifth or sixth birthday. It starts life as a safe, comfortable, conventional baby's cot with three different base heights. Its removable sides mean it can also act as a day bed. Then it miraculously transforms into a stylish junior bed. With its slightly curved edges and stainless steel legs, it’s a design classic and, at around €200, that's a lot of bed for your buck. Available in three colours: white, natural/white and our favourite, Brio yellow. Where: www.mothercare.com
