Helping Mum get the World Ready for Baby

Get The World Ready For Your New Arrival

“Dear Baby, if you can’t tell by the bump, you’ll be here soon. While it’s still a bit unbelievable, the pain in my feet and back remind me it’s about to get very, very real. Love, Mum.”
The first film of the series, Get The World Ready For Your New Arrival, shares the excitement and apprehension of expectant mums preparing for their new addition to the family. From name-picking to decorating, and cleaning to taking classes, all new mums want to make the world a perfect place for their little ones’ arrival. 


Get the World Ready for bringing baby home 

“Dear Baby, today’s the day you’re coming home. I’m so relieved, and terrified, and excited. All of a sudden, I’ve got this little life I’m responsible for. Love, Mum.”
Get The World Ready For Bringing Baby Home shares the thrill and relief of new mums welcoming baby into their home for the first time. With so much to learn about sleeping, feeding and changing, it isn’t easy. But mums can do it, and do it with all the love in the world.  

Getting the world ready for your Little One 
“Dear Baby, welcome to the world. It’s big, and scary, and wonderful, and terrible, and amazing, and I’ve tried to get it ready for you. Love, Mum.”
The third film, Get The World Ready For Your Little One, shares the exploration and adventure when your baby turns into a toddler! Mums will pick up their little one when they fall down, and the little ones will learn to trust their mums to do so. Through the bumps and bruises, a heartfelt bond continues to develop, so you can take on the world, together.

Whether you’re a first-time mum or you’ve been through it all before, a little help to get everything ready for your new arrival can go a long way. 
No matter how clean your home is, it’s essential to take extra care when you’re preparing for the arrival of a new-born or have a toddler keen to explore.   Adopting these simple hygiene habits will ensure that your home is hygienically clean and safe for your little one:
Healthier Surfaces
·         Nurseries should be kept free of harmful germs, especially in the first few weeks.  Don’t forget it’s not just the changing mat and cot that can harbour germs but also frequently touched areas like the door handles and light switches.  Dettol Anti-bacterial Surface Cleanser has no taint, no odour and no bleach and is suitable for use in baby contact areas. 
Germ Free on the Go   
·         From that first night in the hospital to the first trip out,  keep car seats, highchairs and all your baby equipment germ free with Dettol Anti-bacterial Cleansing Surface Wipes which kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and are great for hard to reach surfaces and on the go. 
·         Keeping your hands clean, before and after handling your little one, is really important to make sure germs don’t spread. If you’re feeding, changing, or perhaps handling food or pets, try our Dettol No-Touch Hand Wash System. It automatically dispenses anti-bacterial Hand Wash, after you place your hands under the nozzle to help prevent the spread of germs. 
Added Laundry Protection
·         It’s not just re-used baby clothes and bedding that can harbour germs, new ones can too! While washing at low temperatures is kind to baby’s clothes, it doesn’t offer protection against bacteria which can survive below 60˚C. Use our unique Dettol Anti-bacterial Laundry Cleanser alongside your normal detergent and softener to guarantee hygienic cleaning, even at temperatures as low as 15˚C. 
Remember the day you brought your baby home for the first time? That first trip out in the car? All the things you have done to prepare your home for the arrival, such as cleaning every inch of the house?  Share your memories of getting the world ready for your baby #gettheworldready

Half Term Fun with Rave-A-Roo Childrens Festival at the Ministry of Sound

Rave - A - Roo Ministry of Sound London

Kids. Play. Rave. Repeat

Imagine an indoor festival vibe with a focus on families partying together and getting their rave on….and you have Rave-A-Roo; a new clubbing mash-up of festival fun for all the family.

At Rave-a-Roo there is the chance for mini-clubbers and their adults to take on the dance floor with resident artists Go!Go!Go! as seen on Nick Jr. They’ll be debuting their Electro Set and revealing their brand new look.

For time out from the dance floor and the little ones who can’t party quite as hard, they can take it easy in the Glow Chill Room, with an area for babies, whilst parents watch their little faces light up.

With a fully licensed bar (and tea, coffee and snacks), a convenient onsite buggy park, baby changing, professional security, carefully monitored sound levels and beautifully lit rooms, Rave-A-Roo offers a unique and safe environment for families.
