ACTRESS Sally Phillips, 42, who stars in the hit TV sitcom Miranda and Bridget Jones’ Diary, reveals her favourite children and baby items since having Olly, 7, Luke, 5 and Tom who is eight months old.
The Peaks of London Tokyo dresses and tops were all I wore for the first few months after having Tom
Stylish breast-feeding attire because inch-thick jersey tops that button under the bust are no help when you're trying to scrabble together some much needed post-partum physical confidence.
Raggy Tag blanket from the Handpicked Collection
Simple but effective - babies love them and anything that helps them get to sleep has to be a good thing, right?
Sleepsuits from Barnyard kids
Friends gave us one of these and I love it - fun, cute, good for boy babies and, hurrah, no feet on the jumpsuits so they last longer than a few weeks.
Cuddledry apron towels
Three kids in and I was still terrified of dropping my wet, soapy newborn after his bath. Got one of these - sorted.
A good organic, baby massage oil like Earth Mama Angel Baby Oil from Blossom Mother And Child
I've loved massaging all my babies. They'll only let you do it for about a year so get on with the bonding while you can.
Sally will be staring in the third series of Miranda which will be broadcast at the end of the year and is patron of a charity for disabled children called Me, Too & Co. www.metooandco.org.uk
