Here are some of the best products found on Baby Movers & Shakers list this week:


1. Blulu Cabinet Latches (6.98)

Most promising review: "Stops my curious 9 month old baby from opening drawers and cabinet doors. Strong adhesive pads. Adjustable lengths allow for fitting across a wider range of cabinet/drawer designs. The unlocking mechanism is such that you have to press, slide out and lift up to release the latch. This is probably child-proof for children up to 3 years old. My guess is that some of the smarter 4 or 5 year olds may be able to work it out, but I'm not 100% sure on that, so it's just my guess." – Panther Black

2. Gro-Clock Sleep Trainer (£19.99)

Most promising review: "This is literally a miracle! My daughter has stayed in bed quietly or gone back to sleep EVERY day since we bought it. She was getting up any time from 6am and now it's never earlier than the allocated time of 7.30am. I explained it to her carefully and made a big deal of waiting for the sun with her when she woke early on the first day. She is only 22 months but definitely gets it as she laughs and cheers when the sun comes up. Very happy!" – Caroline Pryce

3. Milestone Baby Cards (£12)

Most promising review: "I am so glad I purchased these milestone cards! They are such a great way of remembering to capture those treasured milestones! I don't think I would have remembered to capture them if I hadn't got the cards! I had a lot of people comment and ask where they were from too! They make such a lovely gift for baby showers and birth presents too! I will definitely be using them as gifts in the future!" – Abbie Straw

4. Wooden Marble Run (£39.90)

Most promising review: "Purchased this toy for my little girl who's just turned one, she absolutely loves it. She's already mastered how it works and it keeps her entertained longer then any of her other toys. I love wooden toys and this ball run is made beautifully, it's easy to set up, and the colours are lovely and bright." – Paul Holdsworth

5. Lanolin For Breastfeeding (£15.93)

Most promising review: |This is hands down the best nipple cream out there. Put it on religiously after every feed at the beginning and it'll help massively. After a while you won't need to put it on. Incidentally, it's also great as a lip balm (well, when you're confined to a sofa with a baby and you need lip balm, I recommend it!)" – Jillogical

6. Slumber Buddy Frankie The Frog (£12.49)

Most promising review: "This was a gift for my newborn nephew who loved it instantly. It would send him off to sleep almost right away and created a peaceful calming atmosphere. It worked extremely well in putting my sister and her husband to sleep also and has now become my go to present for baby shower gifts!" – KKH

7. The British Bed Bumper (£10.99)

Most promising review: "When moving my son to a single bed (aged 3) we decided to ditch the traditional bed guard in favour of this. I must admit to being quite nervous as he was prone to falling out of his toddler bed, however this has been a revelation. He hasn't fallen out once, plus it's comfortable and allows easy access still for him to climb onto the bed. Yes it's just a bit of foam, but really does the job. We'll definitely be taking this on holiday with us. It does pull the sheets up on the side which doesn't negate their effectiveness, it is just a little less attractive. I didn't bother investing in deep mattress sheets as I felt they would then be too baggy on the bed overall, plus I assume using a bumper is a short term measure which I'll eventually be able to get rid of. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend." – Inzo L2012
