Finally, somewhere your buggy won’t incite exasperated sighs. This lively, colourful boutique-cum-café tucked away in the 15th arrondissement is an oasis of joy – a definite must-visit whether you’re a parent, pregnant or far from it.
In this beautiful 170 m2 space, find a cloud-shaped mobile for your little one, then treat yourself to carrot cake on the ground floor; or on the first floor , learn how to fashion your own baby-sling (€35 for two hours), give baby massages or even do yoga (€22 for an hour and a half). From body-awareness classes to lessons in English or sign language, all workshops are led by experts.
Shopping-wise – as well as blankies, rattles and other babywear – expect water-based nail varnish for kids, organic pillows from Oyoy, and fashionable décor from Bloomingville, My Little Day, OMY and Ekobo. Round off your visit with a trip to the café – a tearoom at the back of the shop serving delicious lattes and a selection of homemade treats. Youngsters can even order their own “babyccino”.
