The Gilded Bird

Having kids doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your style anymore. This award-winning Berkshire business has taken nursery essentials to next level gorgeous.

Having a baby or know someone who is? When kitting out the nursery it’s almost impossible to find gear that fits functional and fabulous. Options usually flip flop between boring, twee or wall to wall Disney. Design mavens and the style savvy are left with their heads in their hands.

But not any more. Mum of three Jeanie Bird created The Gilded Bird because she couldn’t find a quality changing mat she wanted. Just because it’s a baby essential doesn’t mean it has to look it. Rather than ‘making do’, Jeanie created one. You might as well have something easy on the eye while you’re dealing with an explosive nappy.

The result was a stylish anti-roll changing mat, inspired by the Berkshire countryside. A local artist (also a mum) has now created 12 hand painted designs for The Gilded Bird that are printed onto wipeable, durable and non-toxic PVC and moulded over multiple layers of thick and soft foam.

The range has expanded to include five different types of changing mat, splash mats and a new range of beautiful bedding and cot sheets.
