Like many other mothers mum Lorna dreaded the moment she would have to go back to work and leave her little ones in daycare, so she decided to start a venture of her own and open an online store called Gummy Babies. At Gummy Babies you’ll find eco friendly, practical, useful products for busy Australian families and shipping within Australia is always free. Gummy Babies allows Lorna to stay at home with her boys and you get to shop in this lovely store, a double win!
What does your ideal Sunday look like?
My ideal Sunday at the moment (being 25 weeks pregnant) involves breakfast in bed made by hubby always joined by the two boys. Then a trip to either the beach for a lovely swim or a bike ride round the coast. Anything outdoors.
Why did you start Gummy Babies?
I started Gummybabies after I realised I would have to return back to work and put my babies into full time daycare. I was ready to work but not quite ready to leave them. I’ve always wanted to work from home and after the success I’ve had with the Amber Teething Necklaces I thought it would be perfect to put together all the things I love and combine them in an easy to use site. Including free shipping was a big thing for me.
What do you like most about running your own store?
I love being able to contribute to our families income and also be there for my two boys. I can take them out to the park in the mornings and do my orders during the day. I love having the social contact with my customers, talking about their little ones and sharing experiences.
What is your favourite product at Gummy Babies?
My favourite product would have to be the Amber Necklaces. I’ve used them for both boys and had no teething issues. I believe its also helped with their exzema. Which is almost non excistant. I have also been wearing my necklace for nearly two years now and its helped take away the swelling and inflamation from my knee. I also love the new Organic Aden + Anais cot sheets. They are beautifully soft and I especially love the designs. They are perfect for babies sensitive skin. I can’t wait for my new baby to sleep on them. They compliment any nursery decor.
What would you recommend as a must-have product for new mums?
I would recommend all mums invest in some beautiful swaddle wraps like the Organic cotton aden + anais wraps. The large size makes them perfect to use as a swaddle, sun shade on the pram, breast feeding cover up. The more you wash them the softer they become.
