Hanging Baby Cradle, £208; Tripod Stand, £99; Tepee Play Tent, £130
The perfect place for your little one to ‘hang-out’ is this beautiful, pure cotton hanging cradle, which offers an enclosed, safe space to soothe and relax newborn babies. The slight motion of the cradle replicates the feeling of being in the womb and encourages the development of your child’s sense of balance and motor skills. The cradle can be suspended from a ceiling, or purchased with Leander’s tripod to create a freestanding unit. A separate tepee play tent can also be used to convert the tripod into a fun playtime accessory once the cradle is outgrown!
Changing Table, £649
It’s inevitable you’ll be spending a lot of time at one of these in the early days (and years!) of your child’s life, so why not make it a nice place to be? This beautiful European Beech Wood changing table compliments other Leander products with its practical, rounded shape. The table comes complete with changing mat, storage drawer and a moveable shelf, meaning you can place everything you need within easy reach, and adjust the height to be suitable for mum, dad, grandma, and any other lucky nappy-changer! When no longer required, it can be transformed into a stylish desk for older children.
High Chair, £159
Give your little Prince or Princess a throne to be proud of with these unique wooden high chairs! These luxury chairs are designed to support your child’s back and aid their posture during mealtimes. The chair has a steady balance yet weighs just 5.1kg, so is easy to move around. A matching safety bar (sold separately) can be added and adjusted as required. In true Leander multi-functional style, high chairs are fully adjustable and grow with your child to become a normal adult chair.
