Knowing how well babies sleep in the fresh air, it comes as no surprise just how popular the Kurtis Baby Peace has become for modern parents.
This 100% organic cotton fabric has just three simple loops which you clip onto the hood of your pram or car seat. And being loosely attached you can pull them like a curtain so that it’s always there to provide an instant shelter against the wind or bright sun as well as a sleep aid.
And for parents who may be worried about how shades can simply increase the heat around their babies, the Baby Peace can be attached with ties to the handle of your pushchair creating a canopy effect.
The ethical manufacture and organic nature of the product was what first attracted Nicola Jenkins, a mother of 2, who set up Avant Direct, a small family-run business that has the sole distribution for the Baby Peace in the UK.
“I liked the fact that the product was designed by a mother of 2 in Sweden, was made by a mother’s cooperative in Estonia and they’d opted to use organic cotton – making this a really ethical choice. It’s a product that is simple to use and the funky design has been an instant hit with UK parents. I road tested it with my boys last year haven’t looked back”.
The Baby Peace comes in 6 great colours with a contemporary motif which enhances any standard pushchair. RRP £29.99 www.babypeace.co.uk
Nicola is a mother to two boys, 3yrs and 18mths and discovered the product walking in the park when pregnant with my second son. She realised that this product wasn’t out on the market and researched the manufacturers in Sweden and asked to distribute the product into the UK.
Nicola works from home, juggling motherhood and business, and have since Kurtis Baby Peace have found other products that are ethically made, designed by parents, and that she knows as a mother work and are very much needed.
