Week 34 and counting

Nursery design is in full swing now, even though I am finding it more and more difficult to move around the room and also get told off by my husband for carrying things. Although it seems impossible, Bump is still getting bigger and bigger by the day. Bending down is becoming harder as the days pass and I am thanking my lucky stars that we are in summer so that flipflops can be slipped on with relative ease. I have resorted to wearing comfortable maternity dresses only and have developed a new technique for rolling off the sofa!

Although growth continues to progress at a rapid rate, there is no time to rest. With our cot in situ, other furnishings are required and this brings me to The Baby Cot Shop. The Baby Cot Shop is a luxury boutique that is located on the Kings Road in Chelsea. This is a company that is focused on supplying premium baby and children’s furniture and it has a whole range of goodies to help you prepare your nursery for its new arrival.

Wallpaper, art and lighting are all among the most popular products. The Baby Cot Shop is a great place to look for personalised décor and you can have the name of your child painted on to furniture or embroidered on bedlinen for an extra special touch. Among the most popular products available is the Brittany Handcrafted Cradle. However, the accessories that really caught my eye were the stunning Moses basket.

The Baby Cot Shop has a beautiful range of Moses baskets and they are stylishly designed to present a sophisticated impression. Among the choices is a wicker version, which comes elegantly dressed in fine white pearl or white cinnamon Italian linens. The basket is crafted by hand also comes with a stand as an option. This means that you can use it as a first bed.

If you are looking for a real statement piece, the Antique Lace bassinet definitely has the wow factor. It is majestically dressed in lace fabrics with roses and this is a classic item that can be custom made to meet specific requirements.

However, my personal favourite from the selection is the traditional Moses Basket, which is presented beautifully but also designed to be extremely convenient for new mums. This is an item that I can see coming in very handy during the summer months as you can easily move your baby around the house and know that comfort will also be guaranteed.  It is a great item for them to nap in during the day and its portability will also come in useful should you wish to spend some time out in the garden.

Apart from looking very pretty, the basket is also quite substantial and practical. It provides the baby with a cosy space for resting and is available with mattresses already in place. The Moses basket is also ideal for new mums who plan on taking their baby to a special occasion because it gives you a stylish option for carrying your little one.

Having not even thought about this accessory previously, I would now recommend that it features highly on your priority list for newborn essentials, especially after discovering the delightful collection stocked by The Baby Cot Shop. It is presented beautifully, so would also be a fabulous gift.

Until next time,
