Bedside Crib

Keeping your baby close to you can be a real game-changer for many parents, especially in those early newborn days and weeks, providing comfort through proximity that can help both of you sleep better. Our bestselling Lua has scooped awards for being so versatile – it doesn’t need to strap to your bed so can be used around the house for daytime naps. The breathable mesh panels let you easily keep an eye on baby as you lie by their side at night, plus you’ll get peace of mind that thanks to their comfy breathable core mattress they are safe and comfy as they sleep. Plus, if you’re taking it away on holiday (yes, the collapsible design is compact enough to do that!) you won’t need to disturb their sleeping arrangements too much. Check out the Fawn shade – an on-trend warm stone shade.

Nursery Bedding

The right bedding can really elevate their sleep environment. Look for supersoft fabrics, ideally organic cotton, which is breathable as well as gentle on baby’s sensitive skin and easy to care for. Fitted sheets are essential, while blankets and a quilt will add warmth and cosiness (although remember to follow safe sleep guidelines about the bedding you use in your cot). As your little one gets older you might want to choose bedding with a design or colour that they can love, to add an element of enjoyment and fun to their bedtime routine. Make their cot or cotbed a really inviting and cosy sanctuary, so they can learn to feel more confident going to bed.

Looking to create a stylish and calming sanctuary but don’t know where to start? This bundle is your complete kit, including a cosy quilt, pointelle blanket, fitted cotbed sheets, adorable mobile and gorgeous dreampod, all featuring the wilderness-inspired shades and prints of our bestselling Born to be Wild collection, for a stylishly co-ordinated sleep scene.
