Christmas Countdown – Day 6

Most parents will agree that this time of year is extra special when there is a new little one on the way or when celebrating your baby’s first Christmas. As a mum of five I know very well how precious those ‘First Christmas’ photos are and how much thought goes into picking the perfect gifts and the right festive outfit. If you’re on the hunt for some gorgeous gear for your cute bundle or another precious little one in your life I’ve got just the address for you:


Australian online store Baby Gift works is filled to the brim with handpicked treasures: beautiful clothing, sweet accessories, cool gifts, luxurious toiletries, lovely linen and more, what will you put under the tree this year?

frugi-suitWhen it comes to shopping for a baby it’s OK to be picky, in fact it is very important to be selective and carefully choose items that are high quality, durable and gentle on both your baby and the environment. Baby Gift Works owner and mother of two Kyla has come to the aid of conscious parents and sourced some of the best organic and eco-friendly labels in Australia and even across the globe.

frugi-hedgehog-muslinPopular UK brand Frugi is loved all over the world for its super soft organic cotton fabrics, comfortable fits and excellent durability, my children own quite a few Frugi garments and I can absolutely vouch for their fantastic quality. You can find an extensive range of Frugi clothes and accessories at Baby Gift Works and I love that you can easily mix and match different pieces to create new looks. Bonus: If you spend $100 or more on Frugi products you will receive a free Christmas gift box, now that’s wrapping made easy.

tots-botsAnother awesome reason eco-parents like Frugi is the fact that, unlike most mainstream clothing, its designs are spacious enough to allow for reusable cloth nappies. They have even teamed up with the nappy specialists at Tots Bots to create an exclusive range of designer cloth nappies to match the Frugi prints, they are so adorable and so much better on the budget (and the environment) than disposables. This Hedgehog in Wellies print is my big favourite, perfect for miss Hattie.

Feeding Fashion: Frugi

 Eco, Mum, Style  Comments Off on Feeding Fashion: Frugi
Nov 292015


After five babies there are many things that get easier, but for me breastfeeding is definitely not one of them. Personally I prefer to quietly feed my baby in the comfort of our own home but sometimes you have no choice but to feed away from home, especially this time of year with so many events, BBQs and parties coming up. Luckily discreet breastfeeding has proven to be much easier than I thought thanks to Frugi:

Frugi 'Mother'

I first discovered Frugi a few years ago when I was hunting for hip clothing that would be gentle on my daughter’s sensitive skin. The beautiful organic cotton was soft and comfortable and the designs gorgeous so Frugi has been a personal favourite ever since for all of my babies. Of course it is not just the little ones who deserve Frugi quality, which is why Baby Gift Works also stocks some lovely Frugi pieces especially for (nursing) mums.

Frugi 1

The Frugi ‘Mother’ collection is designed to make breastfeeding easier whilst being comfortable to wear and easy to care for. Made from the same organic cotton as the children’s range you know there are no nasty chemicals hiding in your clothing, yay for baby snuggles that are both soft and safe! Nice to know: Frugi donates 1% of their turnover to environmental charities.

Frugi 2

This dusty turquoise Frugi Summer Tie Dress (RRP $136.95, size Small, Medium and Large) in pretty Blooming Garden print is the perfect light frock for the upcoming summer season. I love how it covers and stretches in all the right places without looking baggy or slouchy, a great boost for this tired mama’s confidence. The under-bust tie adds a lovely feminine shape and is very flattering, even if you still have some baby kilos to hide like I do.

Frugi Dress 3

When it comes to feeding time gently slide the fabric to the side to unveil the secret nursing panel underneath, in doing so you create a small opening that allows your baby to latch on without mum having to display too much skin. If you didn’t know any better you would never guess this dress is a ‘breastfeeding’ garment so you can easily wear it post-nursing too. I am not a confident ‘public breastfeeder’ at all but in this dress I managed to feed Harriet without feeling exposed, big win for me!

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 16

For me with the joy of a new arrival always comes the sadness of missing my family who, due to living in The Netherlands, unfortunately are unable to share in our happiness. How wonderful would it be if they could just pop in to meet the new addition! Of course living far away doesn’t stop my family from showering baby with sweet gifts and (while a real visit obviously would have been nicer) those little surprise parcels are always well received.

Baby Gift Works

Whether you live just around the corner or on the other side of the country, if you want to spoil a special little person with a handpicked gift look no further than Baby Gift Works.

Gumigem JewelleryAustralian boutique Baby Gift Works is the ultimate online gift shopping destination for little people aged 0 up to 3 years old (and their mamas!), the virtual doors are open 24/7 and if you order by midday your gift will be dispatched that same day. From clothing to accessories, from playtime to bath time, from feeding time to bed time and much more, you’re sure to find something lovely in store that fits the occasion perfectly.

Maud'n'Lil Bouncy BirdMum and owner Kyla has carefully selected a wonderful range of much loved Australian and international brands like Little Green Rascals, Gaia Organic Cotton, Little Bairn, Sapling and Plan Toys. Modern green families will be pleased to hear that most of the labels in store are eco friendly too, so they are kind on the environment and your baby (no need to worry about nasty chemicals near your precious bundle).

My personal hot tip would have to be the award-winning Frugi clothing range. I can not speak highly enough of the quality and fit of their beautiful garments and the organic cotton is really soft and luxurious. I love Frugi on my kids (particularly on my little eczema sufferer) and I may even try one of their breastfeeding dresses myself soon too!

Big Baby Shower – Day 2

When you find out you are expecting a new baby it is very tempting to go all out and buy every adorable piece of baby clothing you see, but you may want to think twice and give your fabric choices a little extra thought.

Sapling RomperAs we are not planning on finding out the gender of our new baby I am keeping an eye out for some unisex pieces to add to my hospital bag. I am thinking this gender neutral Sapling Dove Grey Romper (RRP $32.95) would make a great start, I chose Sapling for our last baby too and the fabrics are so soft and comfortable. If you do know the gender of your unborn baby you can find the same romper in blue and pink in store.

Green Toys Twist TeetherIf you want spoil a new arrival with a present but you don’t want to gift newborn clothing (again!) you can take your pick from a range of toys. Many are suitable from birth and others can be kept for later when those first little teeth start to come through.
