stories & quotes

Your first ride home Taking your newborn baby home from hospital is a moment to remember: your first trip as a family. What was it like for you?

Jalil I was so happy! Becoming a parent it’s the start of a new life! I knew how to use the stroller. The Bébé Confort Elea is very easy to use, especially since my  sister already had the same model."

Paul & Prune

Myles Bringing our baby back home wasn’t stressful at all, we were ready. When my partner was done with the few trips between the hospital and our home with the various luggage and gifts, the three of us stepped outside and we felt like it was the start of a new life. The weather was great. We were so proud just going around the neighborhood as a family. We had chosen a Bébé Confort car seat for the first few months, I found it more comfortable for the baby, and for our first car trip it was very easy to set up, I have to admit we had done some serious practicing beforehand."

Jean & Joyce

Femque It felt almost surreal to bring our baby back home, we were so excited after all that time spent doing and undoing the infant car seat, making sure we’d be ready for D-day. This time there was really someone in that seat, our baby looked so small in it, it’s at that moment we fully realized we were parents."

Creating a new style

Every year, the Bébé Confort stylists create a new collection, taking in the latest trends in colours and fabrics. What are the actual and developing trends, what is suitable for babies, are there any new textile technologies that are child- and environmentally friendly? Our styling experts share their secrets on creating the perfect collection for your baby.

Global inspiration "To create a new style – one that appeals to customers - we start by immersing ourselves in the latest trends,” says Constance Gerris, styling consultant. “We survey and investigate trends in design, in fashion, art, architecture, and more. Books, magazines, webinars and blogs are all source material. We also sharpen our understanding with analysis from full-time trend forecasters and, of course, with looking what are the best-selling colors today. You must saturate yourself with all this input. This and our experience make us trust our feelings and choose a selection of thosetrends that apply most to the customer of Bébé Confort."

variations found in forests and meadows inspired us to create the colours and shimmering designs of the Pop Violet collection.” “We need to be creative, but we also need to closely monitor the quality of the fabrics”, Monique Borsboom stresses. “The fabric needs to be comfortable and safe for children and be a perfect fit. A car seat cover should retain that perfect fit after you’ve cleaned it. And if there’s a way to produce the fabrics in an environmentally friendly way, we are only too happy to pursue this option!

Which stroller suits you?

stroller

You’re looking forward to it already: the long and leisurely walks with your baby. To go out for some fresh air and coffee with your best friend; see the world through the eyes of your child, who’s curious about his surroundings. For all these wonderful plans, you need a stroller that best suits you. But which one should you choose? Here are some tips.

Your stroller fits your lifestyle Did you know that in baby’s first year, you will walk a total of around 1,000 kilometers? So it’s important you choose a good quality stroller that will not let you down. Also take into consideration how you use your stroller: in or outside the city, do you travel by car or use public transport? What is your housing situation? When you live in an apartment building without a lift, it makes more sense to go for a lightweight and compact stroller.

How do you use the stroller? Strollers with suspension and large wheels are great for off road walks. Urban life is best taken on in a (compact) stroller with smaller swivel wheels to maneuver around the crowds. A good stroller will have swivel wheels that you can lock. If you’re a frequent user of public transport, you’ll need to lift and (un)fold the stroller very often. A compact, lightweight stroller or buggy is your best choice. One that folds quickly to a selfstanding unit, to store out of the way on the bus. If traveling by car often, make sure the stroller folds flat and the wheels can be removed easily to create extra space in the car.

Make it easy on yourself

Is the pushbar adjustable in height to fit you and your partner? For your child’s comfy afternoon nap, check if the stroller has a soft padded seat and a fully-flat recline A good stroller will enable you to switch the seat within seconds, so that your child can face you or away from you.

Which accessories do you need?

A sun canopy, rain cover, baby seat adapter, footmuff and carrycot are the essential accessories for your stroller.

Tip: Looking for matching accessories like a footmuff? Get the accessories when choosing your stroller. You adon’t have to wa it on that matching accessory to be back in stock when it’s cold out and you need it immediately .

The stroller is an item you’ll use every day, so choose one that’s most practical for you. Is it easy to steer?

10

On the next page we have high-lighted some of our top selling strollers.

your story

Bill, Elimviama &O

Emma’s first ride home

Taking your newborn baby home from hospital is a moment to remember: your first trip as a family. What was it like for you?

I never expected it to be such a moving experience. But for me, the car trip

home from the hospital was an unforgettable emotional rollercoaster. And although it was more than three years ago, I can remember it as if it was yesterday. As we walked to the car, the nurses waved and it seemed as though we were still under their expert guidance. Everything was right in the world. We had a beautiful little girl. I was taking her home. And my husband was by my side. But the instant I closed the car door, it struck me like lightning: “Wow, I’m taking this tiny human home with me. I’m responsible now. Responsible for feeding her, changing her nappy, bathing her, dressing her… But I’ve had no

training! No one has even asked if I am capable. Yet I’m totally responsible!”

The clunk of the car door shutting seemed to have disconnected me with the hospital, and I was overwhelmed with a totally unexpected feeling of being alone. Fortunately, my husband Bill was, as always, perfectly at ease with everything. And as we pulled out of the car park, Bill turned and smiled at me, he put his hand on my knee and said: “It’s just you, me and Emma now.” “Exactly!” my brain screamed. “It is just us. And you’ve had no training either! What are we doing?” “Get a grip!” I tell myself. “This is so unlike you. Everything is going to be OK. And how hard can it be anyway? You don’t need training. Everything will come naturally.” I go over all the self-reassuring arguments that I have

12

thought-up over the past months. I remind myself that I’m probably better prepared than most other first-time mothers. I’ve read all the books. I’ve seen the DVDs. It’s not so hard. Slowly, confidence returns.

I pick-up Bill’s phone. There are already plenty of photos of Emma on there. I flip through. Mostly, she’s sleeping and sometimes crying. But always beautiful. A warm glow of satisfaction

and pride builds up inside. Flipping through the phone photos there’s a close-up of Emma’s hand clutching Bill’s finger. Such a tiny, little hand. “What if it gets trapped in something? What if I didn’t secure her properly in the baby seat and one of the buckles is loose and she inserts a finger in it and it gets jammed and… What-the-heck am I thinking? I’ve never been hysterical in my life,” I tell myself. “Get a grip.” I ask Bill to stop the car so I can sit next to Emma in the back. Her face is that of a pure angel. I can’t stop staring at her. Just looking at her makes me feel happy. I’m no longer thinking about anything – just looking. She was asleep the whole time during that trip back home. I, on the other hand, had experienced my first ever (and until now only) mild anxiety attack. But after talking to other first-time mothers, it’s not uncommon to feel a range of emotions when you take your first born home in the car. So be prepared, and if it happens to you, just get in the rear seat and stare.

dad’s story

Bill & Emma

Shopping blues I really don’t like shopping. I always manage to say the wrong thing at the wrong time – especially when my wife steps out of

the fitting room. As a result, I try not to speak. And I try not to think about what I could be doing. I just hang around until she’s done. I call this feeling the shopping blues. So when she asked if we could go shopping for baby things, alarm bells started ringing. . But fortunately, it didn’t turn out so bad. The first time I entered the baby shop, it gave me quite a start. All these women with their huge round bellies running around the shop. Like they could give birth at any moment…

The men were invisible at first, but looking again, I noticed they followed the women at a short distance.

Slowly and tentatively. Listening and nodding. Like they were just hanging around. The shopping blues were written all over their faces. It is good to know that you’re not alone. I also noticed couples who were only just pregnant. Their child-like innocence, their euphoric mood, as they sauntered along the shelves. That’s how we were too, my wife and I. Walking hand in hand, like equals, gazing in wonder at the multitudes of baby products. Laughing about the cutest baby clothes. Have you seen these baby sports shoes? So touchingly, endearingly sweet. I know they’re not meant for running the marathon, but just try to control yourself when you’re

14

holding these tiny Nikes in the palm of your hand? I’ll tell you, I couldn’t. Despite fierce protests from my wife, my first purchase was a little dog. It had the cutest brown eyes and lovely long soft ears and the cuddliest face you’ve ever seen. I can just picture our child dreamily sucking on its smooth black nose. Lightly, like a woman, I run my fingers through the baby clothes. At least, that’s how I imagine myself to look. In fact, it’s a little more complicated than that. For instance, last week, I came home with the cutest little baby summer suit. And by the time, our baby would fit into it, summer would be long gone. Luckily I’d kept the receipt. I should have kept the one for the nappies as well. A nappy’s a nappy, you would think.Well, think again. These are the small setbacks I’ve suffered. But I am refusing to slip back into the blues.

It’s just too much fun. So I decided to take the best of both worlds and combine an old hobby of mine with a brand-new one: wheels.

In this case, wheels for the baby. Although it’s early days yet, I have examined every available option. Carefully, I check the carriage work. How many wheels? Three or four? I weigh up the pros and cons of all options. How fast can it go? What’s the maneuverability like? I carefully check the tire profiles. How will it handle in the woods? Or on sandy beaches? I take my new role very seriously. I travel far and wide to visit test courses. I take buggies for a trial run whenever I can. And all the time, my wife says nothing. She just looks at me with a vacant stare. In fact, it looks rather like the shopping blues.

baby feeding

Breast, bottle or both! If there’s one thing for sure, breastfeeding is something visceral and will have important repercussions for your relationship with your baby. The basic idea is to feel at ease so you can create a strong and serene bond with your newborn. Breastfeeding, which is strongly recommended by most professionals and various organizations, helps you create a unique bond with your baby. It’s the best way to ward off infections and the most natural way of developing a baby’s sense of taste. Future mothers tend to picture it as something innate that will happen instinctively. Indeed it can be that easy! Or not; it all depends: a lack of milk, for example, engorgement, cracks, or a baby who refuses the breast. There are all sorts of situations. Make sure you are as informed as possible to avoid too many surprises. Always keep in mind that this is all as new to your baby as it is to you, and that you will both need three to four weeks to find your bearings.

The expert tips: For breastfeeding, I recommend you to be well prepared and to ask your midwife for advice as you prepare for the birth. The first time you breastfeed is especially important and you should get help and guidance right from the start, and don’t hesitate to continue this assistance once you leave hospital. Sylvette Rambaud, Midwife, Bébé Confort partner

What you need to know about car safety

You’re off on your first trip with your baby. Exciting? Maybe, but these tips will help you keep the travel enjoyable – and safe.

Longer rearward facing travel

Isofix car seat: easy, simple and safe to install

For the first 12 months (to 13 kg) your newborn travels safest in a rearward facing seat. In an accident, the baby car seat and seat belts will take the force of the impact while fully supporting baby’s neck and head. Tip: keep a sun canopy at hand in the car, you’ll need it more often than you think. A low weight and a good handle makes a baby car seat easier to carry.

Isofix is an internationally standardised system to install child car seats in cars correctly without the need for car seat belts. An Isofix car seat is fitted with two extendable connectors which simply click onto the Isofix fitting points in the car. You’ll find these points in between the backrest

Car installation made easy

Group 0+(0-13 kg)

Bébé Confort Pearl Group 1 (9-18 kg)

It sounds easy, but it’s easily done incorrectly: installing the seat in the car. Research has shown that 80 percent (!) of parents make mistakes in installing the car seat or fastening their child into the seat. 20 Percent of these mistakes endanger the life of the child in an accident. This is why Bébé Confort seats are designed to make installation and use as easy as possible. Some of the innovative safety features are: • Isofix fitting (no need for seat belts) • Intuitive belt route (indicating on the seat the correct and logical belt route) • A harness system that stays open (no twisting of belts) • Belt tensioning systems for an extra solid fit of the car seat

and seating area of the (rear and passenger) seat. This creates a rigid connection between the car seat and the car chassis. All Isofix seats and base units by Bébé Confort (except RodiFix) have a support leg which prevents forward rotation.

FamilyFix base: one-click correct fitting without car seat belts for 4 years of the best Isofix safety and ease of use An Isofix car seat or base needs to be installed once, after which you can leave the restraint in the car, ready for use on every trip. The LED lights-and-sound display on the FamilyFix clearly confirms the correct fitting of the base and seat. Extra check for extra assurance! The base also offers an extra upright recline position, which effectively

means your baby can travel rearward facing for longer in the Pebble. A single base is needed to fit the Pebble and Pearl consecutive age car seats so your child enjoys the best Isofix safety and comfort from birth to 4 years.

After the first 12 months By the time you celebrate your baby’s first birthday, you will probably need a larger child car seat. But it is highly advisable to keep your baby in the rearward-facing position for as long as possible. Industry experts advise that all babies younger than 12 months old (or 13 kg) must have rearward-facing seats, but that does not mean that babies must change to forward-facing seats at this age. So as long as your baby’s head is positioned within the seat shell, rearward-facing remains the safest way to transport your baby. That’s all for now, more safety tips in our next issue.
