When your baby’s frustrated with laying down on a playmat, looks restricted by her bouncy chair and is desperate to sit up, try the innovative Blossom Farm Sit Me Up Cosy. Encourage your little one to sit up unaided, and play in a protected comfortable area.

The Sit Me Up Cosy is basically an inflatable rubber ring covered in luxurious felt with a big cuddly cow’s head on top. Designed to grow with your baby, it comes with a flower-shaped playmat for newborns and doubles up as a sitting aid when your little one is ready. Just inflate the cushions, join them together, and sit your baby inside, armed with the knowledge that if he tumbles it will be on to something soft. Later, you can sit the inflatable cushions on top of each other to make a supportive sofa.

What we love

Initially I bought this little nest to help my daughter Tippi sit. We have wooden floors throughout and playmats just weren’t soft enough for her tumbles. She was also increasingly irritated with lying on her back, so I bought the Sit Me Up Cosy and I’m so pleased I did.

It took a couple of hours to encourage Tippi to play in there, but once she got the hang of it she loved it. With more freedom than a bouncy chair, it offers her independence to play with her toys alone and observe the world around her. And, within days of using it she was sitting up straight.

The accompanying soft felt toys have also been a hit – with the furry texture proving to be great chewing material. This is a unique product which can develop hand-to-eye co-ordination and general physical co-ordination. I just wish I’d bought it earlier!

What to watch out for

The inflatable cushions deflate, and a gap can open between the rings, so just make sure they’re regularly blown up.  Also, as your little one gets more active, climbing headfirst over the top of the ring is great fun. It’s then time to adapt it to a supportive sofa, which should be rested against a wall.

Who is the Blossom Farm sit-me-up cosy best for?

Babies who are frustrated with a bouncy chair and mums who want a few moments of peace while their baby plays in a protected play area.
