SLOAN! BABY ICKLE BUBBA Ickle Bubba is known for producing practical fuss-free solutions for parents at an affordable price without compromising on style. We loved the Stomp V3 All In One Travel System and couldn’t wait to try the new Globe stroller. The ultra-lightweight and airline friendly Globe still feels strong and sturdy. The wheels are small and agile with a smooth push helped by suspension on all four wheels. The roomy basket allows you to pack plenty underneath the stroller. The Globe stroller is suitable from birth as it lies completely flat for newborns and the recliner lever is easy to use for changing positions from sitting up, resting or fast asleep. The ultra-thin seat fabric helps give the stroller a really compact fold. The hood is made from the same thin material as the seat and gives ample coverage to protect baby from the sun and has a rain cover but the hood does not come down as far as others. The strollers folds down so small that it can be kept in the boot of a car and it can be carried easily on the shoulder as it weighs little more than a typical changing bag. £199 available from www.icklebubba.com 40 SLOAN! www.sloanmagazine.com | E-mail us at editorial@sloanmagazine.com NUNA Nuna, the premium baby brand and number one choice for A-list celebrities, brings you the REBL plus - the first 360° car seat to exceed i-size standards for safety by making it possible for newborns up to four years old, to ride rearward facing. Both safe and comfortable, this ultra-practical car seat ‘grows’ with your child all the way from birth to 18.5kg or 105cm. The seat’s 5-point harness is quick and easy to put on with the one-hand adjustable 7-position head support working in tandem with the seat’s 7 position recline to provide a fully tailored position for your child. The infant head and body inserts are removable as your child grows and the seat’s 360° rotation also makes it easier and kinder to your back when putting your child in and out of the seat. Nuna’s smart SIP system provides all around side impact protection and features EPS energy absorbing foam. Even the seat’s stability leg has a crumple zone, while an integrated rebound bar diverts the force of an impact away from the child.

AVA Since its launch two years ago, the Ava fertility tracking bracelet, which detects the nine physiological parameters of ovulation, has helped mothers around the world to conceive with the recently announced milestone of the birth of over 1,000 babies with an average of 25 new pregnancies from Ava users reported on a daily basis. 27% of women are now using technological aids in an effort to conceive. Couples who time intercourse accurately double their chances of conceiving in a given month. Ava Women is leading the trend of women turning to technology to increase their chances of conceiving by tracking their fertility windows. The Ava bracelet, which received The Bump “Best of Baby Tech CES 2017” award for fertility and pregnancy and the Women’s Health “Editors’ Choice” award, uses sensor technology, clinical research, and data science to precisely monitor a woman’s menstrual cycle or pregnancy. Ava is clinically proven to detect the very beginning of the fertile window — in real time, as it happens. This makes it totally different than LH tests, which only detect the last day or two of the fertile window, and the temperature method, which only confirms ovulation after the fact. Worn at night, it is a unique and effortless way to track your fertility. The bracelet also tracks your sleep, physiological stress levels, and resting heart rate—so you can see whether your lifestyle is supporting optimal health. And when you do fall pregnant, the app provides detailed explanations about what to expect in each week of pregnancy whilst continuing to track your sleep, physiological stress, and resting pulse rate, as well as compare your weekly weight gain to standard guidelines. Using the Ava bracelet has been known to help women fall pregnant in as little as two months! The Ava bracelet is £249 and is available from Avawomen.com and Selfridges. SPACECOT SpaceCot is simple to use, lightweight (just 6kg) and comes with a compact carry case giving parents the ability to travel easily with baby. SpaceCot’s unique design means it opens and closes in under 3 seconds without the need to bend down, so it is quick and easy to set up as and when you need. With baby’s comfort in mind, it is designed with all the strength, safety and comfort of a permanent cot, giving parents that extra reassurance. With a detachable upper level for young babies, SpaceCot grows with baby and is suitable from birth to 3 years. It is made from removable, washable eco-friendly fabric, and comes with a comfortable foldable integrated mattress, and a protective travel bag. £139.99 available from www.hippychick.com BABYBJÖRN The BabyBjörn Bouncer Bliss is a lightweight and portable bouncer suitable from newborn up to 2 years with a soft and contemporary look and feel that suits the style and personality of modern families in colours that work in every home. We love the soft mesh anthracite. The soft & natural rocking motion activated when the baby moves means no batteries or cords are required. This encourages babies’ aerobic motion developing their motor skills and balance. The gentle rocking creates a sense of bliss and calm. BabyBjörn believe that a baby who gets a safe, comforting start to life, feel the benefits for a long time to come. Providing support for baby’s head, neck and back, the bouncer allows them to watch their parents get things done, learning at the same time.
