Enter the Toby Tiger x BabyHub Sustainable Summer Competition!

It’s Summer, the sun is shining, the temperature is soaring and it’s time to get baby ready for their first Summer days and nights!

Whether you’re planning for the arrival of your little one, or they are already here enjoying the sights and colours of the world, we think you’ll love this competition we have set up with organic kids clothing brand Toby Tiger.

 

 

Ready for playtime…

Based in Brighton, Toby Tiger has been leading the way in colourful and fun organic kids’ clothes since 1998. Their original designs are kind to skin, with no chemical nasties and they’re proud to be GOTS registered – which is the gold standard in the organic textile industry. Their amazing range of bright colours and patterns will engage baby’s senses, and are just perfect for Summer adventures.

Ready for bedtime…

When the exploring is done and baby is ready to wind down, the NeoSpace Bedside Crib will keep them in arms reach as they snooze. Packed with clever design features and solid eco credentials, the Neospace Bedside Crib has been made with sustainability as a priority. The luxury 40mm thick mattress is made from coir – the fibres found inside a coconut husk.
The crib is constructed from Rainforest Alliance certified and FSC certified pine, and finished with an environmentally friendly water based white paint. All of the materials used to create the Neospace are sustainable and environmentally friendly, and as it doesn’t contain any toxic chemicals such as industrial paints or organophosphate fire retardant chemicals, it allows parents to create a sleep environment that is kind to the delicate skin and lungs of babies.

You can win a mega Summer bundle of £100 of Toby Tiger vouchers, and a NeoSpace Bedside Crib! To enter, head over to our Instagram feed. (Psst, for another chance to win, check Toby Tiger’s Instagram too!)

Read all about it. Reviews, news and more

We feel very passionate about the work that Zubaida and her company do, to support women and girls in less privileged countries, and ensure their health is of the upmost importance during child birth and after. We wanted to show our support with a birth kit donation for every SleepSpace purchased. It is important to demonstrate how together we can make a difference to women’s health solutions for the better. The support from BabyHub is vital in raising awareness of the poor conditions some mothers have to endure during childbirth. To date Ayzh have sold more than 300,000 kits to health institutions in 20 countries, touching the lives of more than 600,000 women and newborns. To learn more about Ayzh and the work Zubaida does please follow the link.

 

We had some really interesting reviews in the last few weeks.

Of particular interest to grandparents would be this one:

Teddy bears and cardigans is a blog written by a grandmother: “ I’m a grandmother to Bear and a blogger based in Cardiff, Wales. We love days out, making things and having as much fun as possible.”

 

Also we had a blog review and video review by the amazing parent bloggers Mudpie Fridays. They took the SleepSpace travel cot with them and baby Kipper on a camping trip. See all the details here:

Protecting Babies from Mosquitoes

“If you think you are too small to make a difference, you have never spent the night with a mosquito.”—  Ugandan Proverb

BabyHub SleepSpace comes with mosquito netting

BabyHub SleepSpace comes with mosquito netting

BabyHub’s new travel cot was designed for ease of use in modern homes and for travelling. It’s become apparent that the one of the biggest attractions of this product is that it provides a mosquito proof space, safe even for babies who can pull themselves up to stand/toddlers.

BabyHub is a brand I founded and we have massive interest from regions where diseases caused by mosquitoes are a problem. We’ve placed our first order and are including the fitted mosquito net cover with every travel cot. We are taking pre-orders now and are considering adding to our initial order due to demand. Product will be available late August.

We have contacted charities to see if we can provide samples of our mosquito proof BabyHub SleepSpace travel cot to help the fight against malaria and other mosquito borne diseases.

Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals on Earth

More deaths are associated with mosquitoes than any other animal on the planet. Mosquitoes may carry any number of deadly diseases, including malaria, dengue fever, yellow fever, and encephalitis.

If you are involved in providing protection for babies against mosquito transmitted diseases or you are a parent living in or travelling to an area where mosquitoes are a cause for concern, contact us for more info or pre-order here:
