For young parents, sustainability is becoming increasingly important when it comes to the layette, the latest must-haves for a new-born baby or even for items to furnish and decorate the nursery. The two questions they often have when looking for products are: Is the quality guaranteed? And what materials were used in making this product?
More people now want to shop local, and that’s a good thing! It allows you to support the local economy, the hardworking entrepreneurs in your own town, city or neighbourhood. Going to local shops is always a good idea.

As a mum or dad, you're sure to recognise this: you want to catch some fresh air with your child but you feel you have to pack everything but the kitchen sink. A nappy bag filled with bibs, dummies, spare clothes, bottles, nappies and 101 other things. A stroller, with or without a large basket. A car seat, a coat, a hat, a favourite blanket and the favourite cuddly toy. Admit it, you're exhausted before you’ve even opened the front door. But no need to panic, here’s some reassurance.
What babies want most is to be able to see, feel and smell their mom or dad, as this makes them feel safe. If you carry your baby, you satisfy all those three needs at the same time.

Because of these sensory observations, your baby feels safe and secure (as safe as in the womb), will show more of an interest in his environment and develop social skills.
