Boxes for Scottish newborn babies

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017

For over 80 years the government of Finland have given a maternity kit containing around 80 items useful for babies, to expectant Finnish mothers. The gift has been designed so the box itself can be used as a cot for newborns, and the maternity kit has been credited with cutting infant mortality rates and raising life chances.

Inspired by these Scandinavian baby boxes, in October 2016 Nicola Sturgeon, the Scottish first minister, announced that similar boxes would be gifted to Mums in Scotland. The project started on the 1st of January 2017, and the first mums in the pilot areas of Clackmannanshire and Orkney have received their boxes.

The box contains a play mat, a changing mat, a digital thermometer, a fleece jacket, several babygrows, a hooded bath towel, a reusable nappy and liners, a baby book and an organic sponge. As with the Nordic scheme, the boxes are suitable for a baby to sleep in and contain cot sheets, a mattress and a blanket. A Scots dialect poem entitled “Welcome Wee One” by national poet Jackie Kay is also included. You know what I’m going to say… it’s a great idea, but if they had only thought to add in a Baby Feed Wheel, it would be pretty much perfect!

Towie baby shower nappy cake includes a Baby Feed Wheel. Reem!

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

The cast of The Only Way Is Essex (known as Towie) are known for their love of a party, so what better excuse than a baby on the way? In the episode shown on ITV2 this evening (Sunday) Sam Faiers threw a glamorous baby shower for her expectant sister, Billie.

The real star of the show was the spectacular 5 tier nappy cake presented to the Mum-to-be, who was absolutely delighted with her gift.

The stunning pink party centrepiece was made by Chiggs stockist Pure Nappy Cakes and includes a host of baby essentials that the new Mum will find invaluable, including a pink Baby Feed Wheel!

Billie and her fiancée Greg have already thrown a ‘gender reveal’ party when they cut a cake to reveal the pink coloured sponge indicating they were expecting a baby girl.

If you’re ‘well jel’ of Billie, fear not, head over to the Pure Nappy Cakes website where you can purchase this and a whole range of gorgeous Nappy Cakes featuring Baby Feed Wheels.

It’s that time of year again- you’ve got flu, you’re a bit feverish, yet  have to take your flu remedy tablets every 4 hours. It’s a nightmare to remember what time you took them and when you can safely dose yourself up with the next lot!

This is where the Get Well Wheel is a godsend:-

Take tablets (lots of water!)

Set the numbers on the dial to show the time your flu medicine was taken

Pop your Get Well Wheel on the mantelpiece or bedside table.

Easy!

Each card is supplied with an envelope, so you can write a little get well soon message on the back and post it as a card or pressie to someone who’s feeling under the weather.

There are 3 embellishments to choose from, a red hot water bottle, pretty pink hottie-bottle or orange flower with green leaf design. Available for just £4.20 (free delivery!) from the Chiggs shop. It’s brilliant to add to a get well soon hamper and as with all Chiggs Wheels available at wholesale prices. Fill in our trade enquiry form for a trade price and information.

Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel receives a Bizziebaby Silver Award

Monday, January 24th, 2011

We are delighted to announce that the Chiggs Baby Feed Wheel has been awarded a Bizziebaby Silver Award, with 2 of the 3 testers giving it a maximum 5 out of 5. The Bizziebaby testers are real mums who use and review baby products, and they clearly loved the Baby Feed Wheel, recommending it in glowing terms….

 “We used this day and night and found it to be a ‘Must Have’.  Excellent quality and amazing value for money.  I must admit I could not be without this now.  As a first time mum this has been a fantastic product to have.  Have already recommended to everyone.  Brilliant product and helps you so much.”

” Quality is superb.  Would recommend without hesitation.  Excellent product for you or for a gift and I would be lost without it.”

To say that we are chuffed would be an understatement! It’s a huge endorsement for the Baby Feed Wheel that these mums, having tested our product, have recommended it in such glowing terms 🙂

The Baby Feed Wheel is really easy to use- it has a rotating dial numbered  1 to 12 that parents can set to keep track of baby’s feed times. It’s available in blue, pink and lemon from the Chiggs online shop or from our many retail and online stockists. We supply all Chiggs Wheels at wholesale rates, and our low minimum order rate and free carriage offers give all retailers the opportunity to sell this innovative (and popular!) product.
