Tickikids Blog Abu Dhabi > The UAE's Finest Baby Shops to Cater to Every Baby’s Needs
We love buying baby essentials and accessories, but today the baby items' horizon has expanded and diversified. Many of us have learnt from experience not to choose the first piece that makes us go “awe” when going shopping, but to think about what you really need and its potential to be passed on to future siblings. Consulting parents and rounding up the best UAE's baby shops, we considered many components from quality of materials, design, uniqueness, sustainability, range of organic items to affordable prices.
Made by Nature has been synonymous with sustainable fashion, organic and natural products that nurture you, your baby and our planet for future generations. It is an online concept boutique. Its history begins back in 2012, when Silvia and her family started their groundbreaking business in Dubai that has come to be known as a relaxed and friendly store mingling fair trade certified natural products and organic cotton clothes for babies, little kids, mums and stylish home décor.
This boutique store does a good line in cutting-edge labels, such as Alma (Austria), Petit Stellou (Switzerland), Biricco by Officina Naturae (Italy), Cink (Sweden), Mokulock (Japan), Naturapura (Portugal) etc., and their products don't break the bank either. Look out for the baby nests, beddings, blankets, skincare, changing pads, baby clothes, teethers, baby bottles, bibs, toys or even furniture and cushions.
Made by Nature is the answer to the toxicity and commercial shame, a celebration of certified purity, exceptional quality, design and ethical, sustainable manufacturing processes.
Tiny Sparkles is a Dubai family start-up specialising in handmade baby products, showcasing their bestsellers – luxuriously soft, eco-friendly, organic changing mats and baby nests. Having struggled personally to find special and unique baby nests and changing mats, owners Fathima and Salma have made sure that they offer only the best customised treasures that every parent needs.
You get the best of both worlds with Pronto Changing Mats by Tiny Sparkles. It's a wipe clean, machine-washable, super-sized fold out changing mat, but compact and easy to take along on your adventures. These come in lovely colour variations complete with an extra-wide removable changing pad, two inside pockets one of which fits up to four large diapers and ointments, and another one – ideal for wipes. It also features a small detachable 'pronto pillow'.
Their baby sleeping nests are an absolute favourite among mums. It is a portable pod for supervised daytime naps and tummy time suitable for newborns up to approximately two years (the size is 90 x 60 cm).
Dedicated to high quality fabrics, their pieces are made from 100% Turkish cotton perfect even for mothers with sensitive skin. Not only that, you can customise the baby nest and changing mat by choosing your colour and preferable design that will add a special touch to the essentials kit and help stand out from the crowd.

One of Dubai's coolest offerings for modern mums and babies, BabyStore fuses feeding and changing essentials, clothes, skincare, gears, toys, school supplies, nursery furniture and decor effortlessly.
