PREMIER COTTAGES LAUNCHES BABY FRIENDLY COLLECTION
Premier Cottages has launched a collection of almost 300 baby friendly cottages that come with all the essential kit that young children need, making it easier for new parents to enjoy a well earned break
All cottages in the baby collection have cots, highchairs, stair gates, plastic plates and bowls. They also offer a range of extras such as sterilisers, baby monitors, baby baths, non-slip bath mats, baby bouncers or Bumbos as well as night lights, nappy bins, sink steps, potties, trainer loo seats, changing mats, booster seats, and socket covers. All equipment comes free of charge.
Some holiday homes even provide a “baby welcome pack”, Moses basket stands, baby walkers, toiletries, nappy bags and wipes. Details of what each baby friendly property has are shown on the individual property’s websites so that guests can see exactly what to expect.
Beth Bailey, Premier Cottages’, Marketing Director, comments: “New Mums (especially first-timers) are a vulnerable group. The prospect of holidaying with a tiny baby and all the kit they require can be overwhelming. In fact, some new parents avoid it all together.
“Our collection eliminates some of stress by providing the key items families need free of charge. The first year with a baby can be exhausting and a much needed break can really help parents cope.”
