Super Cute Night-Lights for Babies and Kids

So my girls are 9. And afraid of the dark. “Mumeeee can you close my cupboard doors. All of them. Is it babyish that I think there are monsters inside?” asks Minnie. Err, no. I have NEVER to this day, gone to sleep with a cupboard door or drawer even a tiny bit open.

So as well as closing the doors firmly, my girls need a bit of night-light action in their rooms, to reassure them I guess. This I cannot relate to, I cannot cope with even a tiny chink of light. My friends and family often refer to me as the only person they know who wears an eye mask and ear plugs outside of a plane. But if my girls need something to comfort them at night, they get it. Happy kids, are sleeping kids which equal sleeping parents.

But but BUT, if you are going to do them a night-light, it needs to be stylish. So how delighted was I, to spot these guys..

Ta daaaaaaaa! The Bubble Baby Bed. And breathe. Have you literally EVER seen anything so gorgeous? 
The Bubble Baby Bed is an innovative transparent rocking crib designed by Lana Agiyan. The idea came from plastic baby bassinets that are used in Hospitals: made from acrylic plastic they are safe, easy to care, hygienic and very appealingly transparent. The crib is being produced in Finland by the same company that makes Eero Aarnio 1960’s original classic the Bubble Chair. You can probably see the likeness.

It has the movement kinetics resembling tilting dolls: once pushed, it returns to the upright position in series of slowing tilts. When the baby moves his hands and feet in the bed, the crib gently rocks on it’s own, putting the child back to sleep. The crib has a stopper ring that makes overturning impossible.

The bed is safe for babies from birth up to six months, and can be converted into a playpen afterwards.

The crib won a Well-Tech technology innovation award in 2013. More importantly, they also win an award from me titled – “The only thing I have come across in 9 years since having my own babies, that has made me want to have more”! It is available in a few colours and costs €2,990. Not cheap I know – but come on! Those stretch marks are SO deserving of it!! Get baby busy at Bubble Baby Bed.

Check out this stylish bedding from new company Tobias and the Bear. Tired of the endless sea of pinks and blues, they were inspired to create something a little bit more edgy. They say they had boys and tomboys in mind whilst designing!
