    I’d love to win some tickets please! My favourite piece of baby equipment for my 8 week old is our sling – he’s so cosy in there and it really settles him down with his colic, plus it means I have my hands free for my toddler 🙂

    My fave product at the moment is from Brother Max, it’s a bath and room thermometer called ‘Ray’ he is a cute little Ray shaped thermometer and he has stopped me worrying about the temperature of Daisy’s bath.

    I am expecting my first baby in September, so we haven’t had a chance to test out any baby products we have got on our newborn yet, but we received the Gro Egg (room thermometer) as a present this weekend and we are LOVING it!! With all the risks of cot death and baby getting overheated, it is a great product, and already highlighting that we have our heating on way too much for a baby!! It also make a great night light!!

    I’d love to win tickets to the baby show, my little boy is 8 months now so would love to see all the newest products to aid this stage!
    Its so hard to decide which is my favourite as i have many products which have been amazing in these first 8 months but probably one of the best has to be muslins – they are essential and come in so handy, we have them everywhere we go not to mention dotted all over the house!

    My favourite piece of baby equipment when Daisy was only a few weeks old was the Fisher-Price Kick N Play Piano Gym. I’m convinced that this piece of equipment contributed to how bright and happy she always seemed and how advanced she was in terms of turning over, raching for things and even walking.
    She quickly got used to the idea that kicking her legs caused a musical reaction and reaching out and pulling the characters would result in a pleasant tune. She played with this from just a few weeks old right up to around 5 months. It’s definitely one I’d recommend
