Welcome to the club
We love stationery brand Kikki.K’s witty greeting cards for mums-to-be and new parents – one says: “Yay! Counting down the days until you can enjoy cheese and wine again”, while another jests: “You’re officially a member of The Sleepless Club” (pictured, $5.90). These are part of its new Hello World collection. More gift ideas include the baby book ($59.90), a scrapbook for collecting photos and mementos, and to pen down memories. To keep milestones recorded, the height chart ($39.90) and Milestone card set ($22.90) – with illustrations inspired by the flora and fauna of Swedish fields and forests – are perfect for the job. Check them out at Kikki.K stores and online at www.kikki-k.com.
Steam, blend, defrost and reheat. This four-in-one baby food maker from Philips Avent is a boon to busy parents. From pureed to chunky, you can now whip up homemade meals, especially for baby’s needs, at every stage of weaning. Compared to its previous model, this has a bigger 1-litre jar to allow for cooking four meals in one go. Washing up is a breeze – the blades and jar are dishwasher-safe, while the open design of the water tank allows for easy refills. Get it for $239 from leading nursery retailers.
Nappy rash is a pain in the butt that, unfortunately, is a common problem in babies. Biolane Dermo-Paediatrics diaper rash cream contains soothing and softening sweet almond oil and zinc oxide that help take the itch away. It also has panthenol and vitamin E to repair and restore damaged skin. A 100ml tube retails for $18.90 from Guardian, Kiddy Palace, Watsons and www.betime.com.sg.
