Is your little one almost ready to come into the world? It’s time to prepare for baby’s arrival so that everything is ready on time. Discover our Childcare section and compare thousands of offers from different brands at a glance. At pricehunter.co.uk, we provide you with a comparison tool so that you can quickly find everything you need for your new addition: baby equipment for use at home, for going out, textiles for babies and children – all this while also saving money!
Let’s take a tour of our category: everything your baby needs
In the beginning, your baby’s needs are simple: hugs, smiles and sweet words. In addition to all this, your baby has physiological needs: sleep and food. Even if we can’t compare kisses and cuddles, our site can help you to compare prices for everything else!
The arrival of a child turns the way the family is organised upside down, starting with the house. Some equipment is absolutely necessary, for example a baby bed, a suitable mattress and a changing table. On our site, you will find a wide range of equipment for baby’s sleep and for decorating the bedroom. Whether it’s big or small, your baby’s room should resemble a cosy little nest with a serene atmosphere to encourage sleep. You could opt for a nightlight and/or a musical box. Whilst they are not absolutely essential, they could help your baby fall asleep or reassure a child who is scared of the dark. The site also offers a wide range of bed linens, baby bumpers, cosy sleeping bags and soft, fluffy blankets for your baby. For moments of calm or rest, or even for meals, a swing or a reclining chair is very helpful.
Has the mum-to-be chosen to breastfeed? On our site, you will find different types of manual or electric breast pumps, freezer bags and boxes, as well as breastfeeding cushions. If you have opted to bottle feed, you can compare the prices for the biggest brands of bottles, bottle warmers and sterilisers. And once it’s time to diversify your baby’s diet, the special food processor for baby’s meals will make your life simpler: you can prepare little dishes using fresh products, which you can freeze in special boxes in the ideal quantities for your child. Not forgetting special dishes for babies and young children – plates and cutlery which are specially designed for your child, and which are unbreakable and can be washed an infinite number of times!
When it comes to safety at home, compare the baby monitor and video systems to keep an eye on your child, even if you are in the living room. This equipment is even more useful if you have a large house or a house with several storeys. Extendable stairgates, for example, will be useful as soon as your baby is on the move and discovering the world, and especially if your house has stairs. If you want to make your space safe, on our website you will find all the protection types on the market: protection for table corners, socket covers, door stoppers to avoid trapping fingers, and drawer stoppers, for example. Taking this type of precaution will allow you to avoid domestic accidents which can happen so quickly and which endanger your child and your peace of mind. To ensure your little angel grows up in a completely safe environment, consider a baby playpen: they offer your child a special space and are perfect to allow your child to make their first discoveries and experiences in total independence. Equip the playpen with a playmat and some toys which are suitable for their age so that the time spent in the playpen is amongst the most stimulating.
Equipment for taking baby out
Changing bags and travel cots
It’s time to show your baby the world: but going out for the first time isn’t a simple task! You have to plan for all eventualities to avoid having to head home early... That’s where your changing bag comes in: it’s your best friend for your adventures as a family. At pricehunter.co.uk, you’ll find all the styles in the blink of an eye: chic, practical, mini, maxi or a rucksack-style change bag. Brands and retailers compete to offer ingenious solutions for transporting all the essential baby accessories when you are not at home, so that you have everything you need wherever you are. Another piece of equipment needed for parents who like to get out and about and love to travel: a folding bed will allow you to put your child down for a nap in comfort or for a night spent away from home. At pricehunter.co.uk, you can compare the weight, closing system and the price of hundreds of models.
Then there’s the baby equipment needed for the car: the challenge is to find a balance between comfort, safety and price. Car seats and booster seats are essential until the age of 10 or until your child has reached the height of 1.5 metres (4 ft 11). You should choose one that is suitable for the age and weight of your child; some seats grow with your child. For baby’s first few months and up to a weight of 10 kg, you will be able to choose between a rear-facing car seat or a carrycot. There is also a pivoting type of car seat which allows you to position your child facing you for the first few months. As soon as your child has reached a weight of 10 kg, you will be able to pivot the seat so that the child faces the road. From 10 to 18 kg, or a height of approximately one metre, Group 1 car seats are recommended for their shape which cradles the child and their 2 or 3-point attachment system. This guarantees maximum safety. From 18 kg up to 36 kg, your child will move up to a booster seat, which puts the safety belt at the right height. There are models with or without a backrest. The models without a backrest are less bulky and they are easy to use and install. Models with a backrest offer extra comfort, especially when the child goes to sleep, as their head is supported on both sides. Before choosing, check the minimum and maximum weights for each model so that you can’t get it wrong!
Another sensitive purchase which you should take your time over to compare the different options: a pushchair! At pricehunter.co.uk, you can filter the offers by brand, if you have a specific one in mind, or by price according to your budget. You will also find all the accessories to increase the safety and comfort of your child in their pushchair: umbrella, hand warmer, blanket or transparent cover so that you can take a walk whatever the weather. Even if modern pushchairs have very good handling, and are even all-terrain, it can sometimes be difficult getting around with one. Pavements which are too narrow or crowded, taking public transport, going shopping – these can all quickly become a real challenge. In this situation, a baby carrier is the perfect solution. Snuggled up against you, your baby will be in seventh heaven and you will have your hands free. There are several models available: be it in the form of a scarf sling, fabric carrier or a special hiking carrier, they have all been carefully designed to be comfortable for both baby and parents.

Fashion for babies and children: you won’t be able to resist!
Let’s start with all the clothes for your newborn: they’re cosy, so cute and simply adorable. And you need to think about them before baby arrives! The baby trousseau is one of the first purchases to think about in advance so that you are ready in case baby decides to come into the world a little earlier. The maternity trousseau is generally made up of 6 bodysuits, a hat, 5 or 6 babygrows, 2 knitted cardigans, a bath towel, a blanket and, of course, a Moses basket. Soft, natural materials are perfect against baby’s fragile skin. For the first few days of baby’s life, you need to keep your little one’s temperature at 37°. To do this, there is one simple rule to follow: always dress your baby in one extra layer of clothing compared with what you are wearing. At pricehunter.co.uk, you can dress your child from their first babygrow through to their first denim jacket without breaking the bank! We have a wide range of kids´clothes available, from trousers and shorts to dresses, through to t-shirts, jumpers, sweatshirts, coats and underwear, as well as a variety of accessories that your little one will love. Browse the shelves from the comfort of your sofa and find everything your child needs when it comes to clothes, summer or winter, at the best possible price.
Back to school!
September arrives, and pupils of all ages go back to school. Come and take a look at the wide variety of school bags, educational software and calculators listed on our website. The school bag is certainly the main piece of equipment. Choosing one can be difficult: it’s a case of finding the perfect balance between your child’s body type, tastes and needs depending on the class they are in and based on what they need to take with them on a day-to-day basis. To protect their back if your child has to carry a heavy load, a bag on wheels could be a good option. But children and adolescents often prefer a rucksack for practicality. Luckily, there are ergonomic models which are designed with comfort in mind. Here are our little tips for choosing a bag wisely: it must not exceed the width of your child’s shoulders in size. It must also not sit below the lumbar vertebrae. Check that the straps are adjustable, padded and wide enough for maximum comfort and good weight distribution. Compare the weight of the bag when empty – fabric bags are generally lighter. With hundreds of offers on our website, there’s no doubt that you will find the ideal bag at the right price.
