Top tips from JoJo mums


Our Retail Marketing Manager Alex loved her Newborn Sleepy Sac:

‘It is a great alternative if your baby doesn’t like swaddles, it also has a zip opening which makes night time changes much quicker’


Alex loved the DockATot (previously Sleepyhead):

‘I could easily move it around the house depending on what I was doing, and she rested really well in it’


Our Marketing Executive Christine suggests keeping some baby changing essentials and a mat both upstairs and downstairs:

‘A trip upstairs for a nappy feels like climbing Mount Everest after a sleepless night!’


Our Performance Marketing Manager Emily says:

‘Extra Large Muslins are great if you want to keep yourself covered up when nursing and also for swaddling your baby’


If you do not have a car, a lightweight, compact pram is perfect for getting on and off public transport.
Our Online Editor Bassmah recommends the BABYZEN YOYO² NEWBORN PUSHCHAIR:

‘By far the best baby purchase I have ever made!’ It comes with a newborn pack for when your baby is little and lying on their back, and a 6 months+ pack for when they’re sitting upright and facing out.


Our Performance Marketing Manager Emily says a bouncy chair was one of her best purchases:
‘I would put him in this while I had a shower or worked, until he was about 6 months, so it was really useful!’
