Boots is significantly expanding its offering of baby and toddler products and services to help new and expectant parents navigate the early years of family life. From baby essentials to expert advice from its pharmacists, Boots is uniquely placed as the one-stop shop for all things baby.

With an ambition of being one of the biggest baby retailers in the UK, already this year Boots has introduced a host of new and well-loved brands and has extended existing lines with hundreds of new products. This week also marks the arrival of the much-anticipated Mothercare range launching online on 25th September and it will also begin to appear in over 400 stores from the 28th September. As part of the launch, customers will be able to shop the Mothercare clothing range and iconic nursery items as well as popular brands including iCandy and Bugaboo, with new products being added monthly.

The new Mothercare and Premium Nursery Zones will begin to open in 10 stores up and down the country from November, making shopping for babies and toddlers easier than ever, housing all the latest and most popular products in one place. In the new zones there will be Baby Help Hubs which will provide customers with 1-2-1 assistance with purchases and access to expert Boots advice. Staff will be specially trained to help customers get the right product, that's customised to their needs.

Parenting Club at Boots continues to be one of the most competitive schemes on the high street, offering exclusive access to a host of perks, free gifts at key stages of baby's development and advice on the health and development of your little one. Not forgetting eight points for every £1 spent on baby products*. 

Kevin Heath, Trading Director of Health, Wellness and Personal Care at Boots UK says;

"Having a young family is an incredibly exciting and special time and we know from talking to our customers that having a wide range of great brands along with expertise under one roof is extremely important to them, and that's why we are reinventing and expanding our baby and toddler offering at Boots. We want to be the go-to place where customers can get everything they need from great value essentials, to pharmacy advice, whilst having a great shopping experience."

Kevin Rusling, Chief Operating Officer at Mothercare says;

"We are really excited that Mothercare is launching in Boots.
