Bambino Baby, Petersfield
Peekaboo! From gorgeous gifts to practical gadgets and expert babywearing advice, boutique shop Bambino Baby in Petersfield is a must visit for all-things baby
Well-known and liked in the area, experienced consultant Roamy Hunt, owner of Petersfield’s Bambino Baby, has helped scores of new mums (and dads!) get to grips with the often complex and personal business of babywearing.
Known locally as ‘the sling lady’, before opening Bambino Baby, Roamy ran pop-up shops and was a familiar face at sling library sessions at baby groups and other venues in and around the area, as well as holding one-to-one consultations in her home or at parents’ own homes.
One of the UK’s most experienced babywearing consultants, with over a decade of experience, in July 2020, she made the leap to opening a shop: Petersfield’s Bambino Baby, voted Best New Startup in the 2021 Muddy Hampshire and Isle of Wight Awards.
Shortly after, she was named Best Babywearing Consultant 2021 by the UK Enterprise Awards for her work as a Babywearing Consultant and Sling Library.
Determined to continue helping as many new mums as she could at the most challenging time for small business owners and parents, during lockdown Roamy ran new parent and baby support groups. Throughout, she has also continued to offer expert help, baby wearing advice and one-to-one consultations.
Tucked away in the gorgeous Pages Court in Petersfield with other brilliant independent shops, beauticians and café, Bambino Baby has become a go-to for new parents and anyone in search of a decent new baby gift that will genuinely be appreciated.
Those with bubbas in-tow can make good use of the shop’s thoughtful design, including the comfy feeding space and spacious baby change and loo.
From bespoke, ready-made gift boxes (a baby shower gift that’ll truly be appreciated – trust us) to teething toys, blankets, soft toys and nursing necklaces, you’ll find it at Bambino Baby.
Popular products include Etta Loves range of muslins, blankets, and comforters with bold, contrasting designs designed using the science of what babies can and can’t see (clever).
Also stocked are Eco Rascals organic bamboo tableware, Love to Dream swaddles, super-cute Jellycat cuddlies (aww), reusable nappies plus loads of brilliant designs from local, independent businesses.
