A basic kit usually includes everything you require and they vary in size from 4 casting to 20 castings. You can buy kits that include a frame to fit a hand a foot casting which is the ultimate gift for new parents.


Organic Cot Bed Mattress You might be thinking a cot bed mattress is an unusual gift but what’s better than providing a newborn baby with a safe, chemical free and natural sleeping environment for the first years of their life. At the time of the birth parents get showered with gifts and quite often these get duplicated or unfortunately have very little future use for whatever reason so an organic mattress is actually a lovely thoughtful gift.
