With preparations for baby no.6 in full swing I can’t help but think back to 9 years ago, when we were pregnant with our twins and simply purchased all our baby gear at our local babystore. Times have changed a lot since then and now I can’t imagine getting baby-ready without the wonderful wide world of online shopping.

Oh the luxury of finding the hippest products, the most clever inventions and compare all the must-have features to find the perfect fit for you and your family, all from he comfort of your own home! Knowing first hand what modern parents want and need the team at The Baby Cubby has selected only the very best brands, the highest quality and safest baby gear so that you can shop with ease and confidence.

As a Dutch native I always a soft spot for Dutch brands and Nuna is definitely a hot favourite. We were so thrilled with our Nuna capsule for baby no.5 and I received compliments on its amazing design everywhere we went, the Nuna quality and eye for detail are absolutely superb so I have no doubt the Nuna Sena (USD $249.95) is a real winner too. This award-winning portacot takes the hassle out of travelling with baby thanks to a convenient one-hand fold, superior comfort and a unique above-ground base that protects against nasty cold drafts.

As a huge Skip Hop fan I am also very excited to see that the Skip Hop TUO (USD $160) has arrived at Baby Cubby. Fitted with a secure 5-point safety harness the easy-to-clean TUO is sturdy and safe for little eaters and as your baby grows it converts to a trendy toddler chair, what a great investment! This classy high chair is the ideal choice for families who care about style, space and sustainability as this sleek design will last you all the way from 6 months up to 5 years.

Space is also very important when it comes to prams, as a busy mum my ideal pram must easily fit through narrow doorways, small shopping aisles and fit in the small boot of our family car. The brand new and very sharply priced UPPAbaby Cruz (USD $529.99) in Pascal Grey ticks all the boxes with a neat slim frame, compact one-step fold and a back-friendly weight of just under 10kg. And how you can not love the XL easy-access basket, it’s perfect for little shops and quick errands around town!

To make online shopping even more enjoyable and convenient shipping The Baby Cubby offers an unbeatable Price Match guarantee (yes, even Amazon!) and FREE shipping across the United States for orders over $49.

Skip Hop Forget Me Not

How gorgeous is that sweet Heart Backpack and Lunch Bag Set (RRP $79.95)! The clear window at the front of the backpack allows you to see if you’ve packed lunch before you walk out the door. Now isn’t that convenient for sleep deprived mamas and forgetful students?

Skip Hop Specs Food JarNot only are Skip Hop products super duper cute but they are very clever too.

Skip Hop MonkeySo what are some of my favourites steals in the sale? This funky monkey Skip Hop Zoo Backpack (was $39.95, now $22.95) would make a lovely gift for a little traveller. From daycare to kindy and from a day at the park to a sleepover at Nanna’s, this cute backpack keeps all your goods neatly together and with a design this sweet I bet there will be no grumping about who needs to carry the bag.

Little Bird Gift CaseIf you’re shopping for a new arrival you can be sure to get big brownie points for this adorable Little Bird Gift Case (was $32.95, now $22.95). This lovely gift consists of a white/red spotted grow suit and two pairs of matching socks, packed neatly together in a reusable carry case. Afterwards the spotty suitcase is the perfect storage space for little nicnacs, hair accessories and jewellery, my girls would love it! Nappy WalletAs a frequent user of the Nappy Wallet (was $34.95, now $22.95) I can not speak highly enough of this convenient product. Nappy changes on the go are so much easier when you have everything you need within reach and this handy box does just that. It’s big enough for a few nappies and wipes and it even stores a matching wipe-clean change mat inside. The wipes can be accessed from the outside, how clever!
