Bedtime buddy

Do you crave a calm bedtime for your little one?

Award-winning sleep aid Lumie Bedbug promotes a good night’s sleep for children and babies using low-blue light LEDs which combine a reading light, sunset feature and night light.

Fully adjustable, the sunset feature creates a gradual transition to night and the light control is smooth and silent, allowing you to easily check on your child without disturbing them.

We have two of these cute bedtime friends to give away, usually retailing at £59.99.

Blissful babies

Does your little one wake up when the pushchair stops moving? The Rockit keeps rocking so you don’t have to. Simply attach to your pram, buggy or stroller and its adjustable speed gently rocks your baby just like you would.

With your baby content, you can enjoy a coffee, unpack the shopping and even avoid those late night walks to get them to drift off.

The Rockit uses a gentle rocking motion to safely soothe your baby. Scientific tests show the vibration level closely mimics the normal hand rocking of a pushchair.

Enter to win one of two Rockits, retailing at £39.99 each.
