My Favourite Baby Brands & Businesses

Being a mother of three boys over the span of 9 years, with our newest little addition being just 3 months old, I've used my fair share of baby products and have bought from many baby brands and businesses over the years.

I thought I'd share a list of some of my favourite baby brands and businesses that I've discovered in these years of motherhood, which I go back to time and time again and which never disappoint in their product offerings.

For clothing

Rachel Riley - one of my most favourite children's clothing brands ever! As a mother of three boys I really appreciate a brand who makes just as beautiful clothing for boys as they do for girls. Their adorable prints come in boy, girl and unisex versions and everything has that classic childhood charm which I love. Their blue bunny baby gift box is something we were gifted for our new baby Eden and it's nothing short of perfection. Their blue fawn babygro is one of the most beautiful babygros I've ever seen and I was delighted to find a fawn print for my baby boy. The quality of their clothing is amazing and the sizing is true to size.

MORI - another beautiful clothing brand for little ones, featuring sustainably made organic cotton and bamboo clothing which is lovely for children to wear. Their new Bear Autumn Collection is absolutely adorable and the two pieces Eden was sent are so soft and lovely against his skin. I love the neutral tones and bear embellishments. 

Blade & Rose - a lovely brand with the cutest, colourful and comfy clothes for little ones. I've just spotted that they now also have a Peter Rabbit collection - my favourite! Their leggings are great for when babies start crawling and moving around as they don't fall down and are super comfy to wear. Eden has their Samuel the Sheep leggings and top for when he'll be out on the farm.

Lottibelle - for the most beautiful hand-knit bonnets, baby hats and cardigans, lovingly made by the lovely Lesley. 

My Mini Explorers - for beautiful, handmade 100% organic cotton clothing. They have the most beautiful prints, each beautifully made into lovely clothing for little ones.

Next - they offer great quality baby clothing that is actually the correct sizing, meaning you pay a little bit more for their babygrows etc. but they actually last for the time they're supposed to. Their baby boy range since I had Eden has been so beautiful too.

For bathtime and bedtime 

Little Butterfly London - the most luxurious skincare for babies. I absolutely love this brand! I have been using their little one's bestseller kit with Eden as it's filled with my favourite products of theirs. The wrapped in love - baby face cream is such a beautiful product and I love the gentle scent. I use it every day alongside the dewdrops at dawn - body lotion and they keep Eden's skin super soft and nourished.

HALO - a brand I discovered just this year but one which has become a firm favourite of mine. Eden's bedside bassinet is from HALO and it's an absolutely amazing bedside bassinet for babies, featuring sounds, vibrating settings and most importantly a safe space for baby to sleep. You can read more about the HALO BassiNest Swivel Sleeper Premiere in an upcoming blog post. I have also been using their Ideal Temp swaddles and sleeping bag with Eden and I have shared more about this on my Instagram.

aden + anais - a brand which I've loved ever since Tyler was a baby. The quality of their products is so beautiful and we've a lovely collection of their dream blankets, which are the perfect size for both the baby and toddler years. Their prints are always stunning and Eden has the outdoors print from aden + anais and I love it so much.

Bloomsbury Mill - makers of beautiful, affordable bedding and blankets for children and babies. Eden's first personalised item was a cellular blanket from Bloomsbury Mill and the quality was just lovely!

For feeding

Dr. Brown's - Eden is bottle fed and finding the right bottle for him has been important because it used to take him almost two hours just to finish one feed. I have been using Dr. Brown's Gold Bundle with Eden and he takes these bottles much better. These are clinically proven to prevent windy colic due to the 100% vacuum-free vent system. They work by channeling air away from the baby's feed, lessening gas bubbles in the stomach and slowing down food intake. The Dr. Brown's Gold Bundle contains a bottle and food warmer and a steriliser which can be used on a sterilise only, dry only, combo sterilise and dry and also as a storing place for baby's bottles. All of Dr. Brown's products have been a joy to use as they're so simple - I can't be dealing with any faffing when I've 3 children to look after, so I love these!

For playtime

Lovevery Europe - Lovevery offer stage based play kits and toys to best suit your babies age and I've really enjoyed using them with Eden. He also has their play gym which covers the five sensory zones for babies, giving them the best play experience possible! Such beautiful toys that are so much fun to see Eden interacting with. - another beautiful brand which I absolutely love! Eden has a lot of their products but his favourite has to be their large playmat in Animals Garden print. He loves the hanging toys so much and I love how all of their products look, especially this print. I have also ordered their velvet indoor swing for him for Christmas.

ELC - The ELC toys have such a childhood nostalgia to them. I discovered their Little Senses Glowing Rainmaker, which is such a lovely toy, at Eden's osteopathy appointment. This makes such a lovely sound and Eden always smiles at the glowing smiling face it has.
