BABY

Soft, organic baby sleep essentials from MORI

I met with Akin, one of the co-founders of MORI, in London a couple years ago — back before they had launched their business, when they were seeking advice about their idea. He asked me if I thought there was a need for organic baby essentials. Yes! He asked what I thought about the designs. I loved them! And we talked a bit about how new mums shop for their babies. Often, because they grow so quickly!

It’s wonderful to see how far the business has come since those early days, and I’m so happy I’ve gotten the chance to truly test-run their products with Wilkie. The MORI sleepsuits are, without a doubt, my favourite. Not only are they super soft (made from organic cotton and bamboo), but they have clever features that many other pyjamas don’t have: fold-over mitts to keep hands warm and prevent scratching, a zip feature for easy dressing and access (forget snaps or buttons!), and no itchy tag at the back.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve always been a hopeless swaddler.  Instead, I’ve relied on a baby sleeping bag to keep my babies warm and snug. The baby sleeping bag from MORI has so many clever features (illustrated above), and is the best one I’ve ever tried. Wilkie is still sleeping with me in my bed, so it’s less important for him to wear the sleeping bag for warmth, but I’ve always found that if you start putting them in the sleeping bag at this early stage, they soon associate the sleeping bag with sleep and it encourages them to fall asleep more easily as they get older and transition to their own bed.

I also love the MORI essentials. This organic envelope neck bodysuit is one of our favourite onesies (how cute is the striped style?!), and this everyday tee is great too!

From bodysuits to blankets, sleeping bags to pyjamas, MORI is truly a one-stop shop for all the sleepwear essentials you need for your baby.

Did you try their newborn swaddle or know anyone who has? Debating whether to buy it for my second baby who is due in October

I love the idea of this and have looked at this brand many times. Everything looks beautifully made and very simple and classic which I really like. But unfortunately I just don’t know who can afford to spend £30+ on one sleep suit that will last a matter of weeks. £18.50 on one vest that might not last the day before needing changing. If you bought 7-8 of these (which you would need with a newborn to allow time for washing) it would certainly add up! I get that it’s a small business and uses great quality fabrics, and I’d love to support more small family run companies, but I just can’t see how anyone does it. Do you buy a few key pieces and get the rest of the essentials in multipacks from department stores or do you genuinely spend £100’s each month as your baby grows and you have to re-buy?

Hey Lauren – I know! You would need to spend a fortune if you bought only designer type things for kids. This is something I have kind of struggled with because as well as being much nicer, small brands are usually more sustainably and ethically made. The best thing I have started doing is buying second hand for a lot of my kids’ stuff. If you can find a children’s consignment shop they usually only stock good quality brands in good condition and it is so much more affordable. I can then afford to buy whatever else usually from a small brand that I’m happy supporting. Also second hand is much better for the environment – I shudder to think of the amount of children’s clothing that just gets chucked. I also stalk Ebay and gumtree for things like raincoats and gumboots from good brands second hand. They have usually hardly been worn and are about a quarter of the price they would be new.
