For new parents, caring for your little ones can be blissful and unnerving at the same time. Here, Shennon talks us through items that can really help in having a happy, healthy, comfortable baby or toddler.

#1 Zip Swaddle sleeping bag

A baby’s sleep is one of the biggest factors in cognitive development and mood. We’d been searching for the right sleeping bags that provide the most comfort as well as protection for little ones, but we couldn’t find one. That’s why we decided to create our own Elly Milley Zip Swaddle Sleeping Bag. It’s the only baby swaddle that provides the correct functionality, the right soft material, bespoke cutting and a two-way zipper design. 

The Zip Swaddle features a unique arms-up curvature; this allows babies to sleep in their natural position and self-soothe. The measured curvature of the sleeping bag is designed for optimum heat transfer between the baby’s body temperature and the surroundings, while providing a comfortable fit around the torso to create a secure feeling. The revolutionary two-way zipper is a perfect solution for late-night diaper changes by minimising disturbances to the baby. Of course, with the Arms up Zip Swaddle, there isn’t a need for re-wrapping, so baby stays comfortably swaddled all night long.

The material has since been upgraded to a more premium material, Organic bamboo; it’s designed specially to suit Singapore’s humid weather and ensures baby’s body temperature is being regulated. So no more fussing about whether it’s too warm or too cold!

#2 Tableware

Weaning is a natural process of babies moving from breast milk to other sources of nourishment. During this period, you need the right tools to facilitate the smooth transition of dietary intake and the formation of good self-feeding habits. 

We found that among all the available baby tableware, few brands could beat By Lille Vilde’s thoughtful designs of bowls, spoons, cups and straws, as far as quality, effectiveness and safety go. This Danish brand has a focus on sustainability, and Elly Milley is the appointed exclusive distributor in Singapore. (Click here to find out more.)

Made from the highest grade food contact silicone (BPA- and phthalate-free), sustainable and tested to the most stringent EU-standard LFGB and American FDA, By Lille Vilde tableware is designed with a baby’s behaviour in mind.
