You can also save up to £65 on Silver Cross pop star strollers (kites, wildflowers and constellations – exclusive to Mothercare). The colours are lovely and the thoughtful features on these forward facing design includes a a fully extending UPF50+ hood.
Cheaper changing bags
I’m a bag magpie, so I’ll admit that changing bags at up to half price was the first section I skipped to. There are some Babymel, Skiphop, Silver Cross, Yummy Mummy and Mothercare own branded bags with different levels of discount up to 50% off.
This lovely grey Skiphop mainframe bag is nice and wide with a good mix of internal and exterior pockets. It’s a backpack with built-in stroller straps and it comes with a cushioned changing mat. It’s currently £32.50 – that’s a saving of £32! Find it here*
A cosy spot to sleep in
We loved the ease of using our Chicco Next2Me, they’re also a hit with lots of our Facebook Mums. Right now you can save up to £30 on selected Chicco Next2Me bedside cribs – great if this is an item on your shopping list!
Here’s the light grey Chicco Next2Me, which is now £149.00 here*.
Is your little one ready to move up to their toddler bed? Along with checking out this post on Making the Switch from Cot to Toddler Bed, you may want to snap up this super cute dinosaur cot bed set for them. This is down to half price at just £13 – find it here*.
A cute and affordable sleeping bag
Baby sleeping bags were one of our best buys. A safe cot an empty cot and sleeping bags are designed to let your little wrigglers kick their legs without waking themselves up because they’ve kicked off a blanket and are therefore cold. Mothercare have some Gro Bags discounted as part of their event with lighter summer and warmer winter togs available. There are also some travel Gro Bags, which allow you to use the sleeping bags in car seats when baby needs to snooze on the move.
This elephant and sunshine design 2.5 tog Gro Bag is down to £17.50 from £35.

25% off Selected Medela breast pumps
Breastfeeding and need a decent pump for when you head back to work? A double pump can make for more efficient expressing. They tend to be more expensive than single pumps but one of the popular models in the UK – the Medela Swing Maxi Double Electric Breastpump currently has £60 off taking it down to £179.99. Ours was my breast friend while we were waiting for our little one’s tongue tie correction. Get it here*.
Baby Clothes Discounts
Are you stocking up baby’s wardrobe for their arrival or hoping to nab some bargains for your little one as they move into the next size up? Mothercare has 25% off some of their sleepsuits and babygrows, so it’s a good time to stock up on basics. These striped bodysuits are perfect for spring! Find them here.
Toy Deals to Snap Up – £6 Wooden Puzzle
While there are up to 50% off baby and toddler toys, we found the selection quite limited this time round. We think this simple wooden shape and number puzzle would look lovely in a rainbow themed nursery though – it could be stashed away for baby’s birthday or Christmas. Perfect for helping them to learn colours as well as their numbers to ten and basic shapes – at just £6, it’s a nice affordable gift. You can buy it here*.
