Safety Must Have's

Here we look at our top safety picks for new Parents.

Buggy Tug - hopefully your pram already has one of these as standard, but some still don't. Buggy Tug is a simple wrist strap that attaches to your pram handle at one end and loops around your wrist at the other. Many Parents may query why they need this safety feature but many feel that it is essential, and this type of device is now mandatory in Australia following accidents like this. Whether you take your pram to busy shopping areas, rural walks with uneven ground, or simply up the road, there is always the risk of the pram rolling away and the Buggy Tug will keep your pram with you.

Baby Gates - these are great for keeping your baby safe from rooms, or stairways, where they may run into household dangers. The stairs are a big one and a toddler finding their feet, or a crawling baby, will think of them as another adventure, rather than the hazard they are. Kitchens and bedrooms are often popular places for baby gates too. Choose a safety gate appropriate to where you will be fitting it - it is important to use a screw-fix gate with no bottom bar at the top of the stairs so there is no trip hazard - we like the Tippitoes extendable non-trip safety gate, as you can add extensions to get the size perfect. 

Milton Combi Steriliser - a steriliser is an essential piece of baby equipment, regardless of whether you are breast or bottle feeding, and is likely to be used right up until your baby's first birthday. The new Milton Combi Steriliser can be used as a microwave or cold water steriliser, when combined with Milton liquid or tablets. The latter is really handy for sterilising things like baby cutlery/spoons, dummies/teethers, and those small items you don't really want to heat up in the electric or microwave steamer. It is also handy for those items you will use throughout the day - just rinse and pop a dummy in the cold water steriliser ready for later.

Brica Stretch To Fit Sunshade - this sunshade is special because, as its name suggests, you can stretch it to fit the area you want it to cover. Different car models have different shaped rear windows so this is the ideal solution to cover where you want, rather than where your sunshade is dictating. As important in winter as in summer, you can even stretch two of these sunshades to cover your rear window, making them the more flexible safety option than the more traditional pop-up shades and less hassle than many awkward roll-up shades. The Opti-mesh also blocks glare but not (importantly) the drivers view.

Goldbug Harness - perfect for toddlers who love to be independent, this harness will keep your child close by (especially great in crowded areas when not using the pram) but give them a sense of freedom. The cute critter on their back encourages the fun side of this safety product, and there is a small pouch to put any item your child may want to bring along (perfect size for a dummy!). Also available is the popular Skip Hop Zoo-Let which offers more carrying space in a back-pack with the safety benefit of the rein.
