Earlybirds

Maybe it’s your niece or nephew, maybe it’s your little cousin, your neighbour’s baby or even your own precious bundle, we all know a special ‘earlybird’ who arrived a little (or a lot) ahead of his/her due date. In many cases these earlybirds face difficult challenges and have to spend time in hospital before they are ready to enter the big wide world. Three of my own babies were born prematurely and spent some time in the special care nursery, they were so tiny and absolutely adorable.

As you may know the beautiful baby clothing by Australian company Earlybirds is specifically designed to suit these early arrivals, their Earlybirds range caters for the tiniest of babies weighing just 8oo grams up to 4.5 kilos. But they don’t stop there, when premie babies get older and bigger they often struggle to fit into main stream clothing so Earlybirds has got them covered too with a special Bigger Birds range.

The Bigger Birds collection is available in sizes 3 to 18 months and features navy blue and raspberry colour options to suit both boys and girls. Bigger Birds garments are comfortable to wear, easy to put on and take off and offer an excellent fit for the narrow hips and legs of many early arrivals. The collection consists of popular basics like rompers, jumpsuits, bodysuits and even undies (2-5 years).

Right now you can pick up one of the lovely Bigger Birds jumpsuits for just $22.50 (normally $29.95), that’s a saving of 25%! Be quick though, this offer ends March 31, 2014.

Have you entered our Earlybirds giveaway yet? If you have you have already discovered the latest addition to the Earlybirds range, a special collection designed for our Bigger Birds. But how did the Earlybirds family start in the first place? Let’s go back to the beginning and meet Earlybirds owner and founder Lynda Day:

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
Waking up early and taking our gorgeous dog Bessy for a walk in the Botanical gardens. A great way to start the day.
We usually have breakfast out and then spend the day at home in the garden and getting things organised for the coming
week. It’s a tradition to have a family Sunday roast dinner. I love Sundays.

Why did you start Earlybirds?
I was extremely frustrated that I could not find clothes to fit my premmie (10 weeks early) – so to alleviate this problem for other parents I decided to develop a range of clothing specifically for premature and small babies.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Initially and primarily from my son, but I also get inspiration from other parents and neonatal specialists.

What is your favourite Earlybirds product?
I have a few but I would have to say our new undies for bigger birds are fabulous. They are really fun and perfect for toddlers who have harrow hips and thighs.
I could not find any undies to fit my premmie toddler, they we all too big around the tops of his legs. There is nothing worse than baggy undies!

What is your number one gift idea for people buying for a little earlybird?
I would suggest either one of our gift sets, or if the baby is in special care definitely an Isolette suit, they are beautifully soft and functional allowing for the attachment of leads and monitors.

Today is my youngest daughter’s second birthday and boy, did those two years fly by. A few weeks before my due date the doctors decided that she wasn’t growing as much as she should so I was induced and she was born on lucky Friday the 13th, in room 13. As a mother of twins I was already familiar with having premature babies so I was prepared for the possibility of her ending up in special care but thankfully she only stayed there for a few hours. When babies arrive earlier than planned they are usually tiny in size and it can be hard to find the right clothes which is where Earlybirds comes in.

Some of you may already know Earlybirds, a fantastic Australian label that creates beautiful clothing and accessories for babies weighing as little as 800gram. What you may not know is that Earlybirds has had a little growth spurt and now offers an extended Bigger Birds range too. The Bigger Birds Collection is designed for ages 3 months all the way up to 5 years old (selected styles), so your growing earlybird can enjoy the earlybird comfort for much longer.

Earlybirds owner Lynda, mum to a little earlybird herself, discovered that as her son got older there was a need for bigger clothing with a leaner, slimmer fit that is perfect for prematurely born children. The Bigger Birds Collection offers just that with a range of different suits and even undies designed for narrow hips and legs. The Bigger Birds designs feature a funky, bright bird motif suitable for boys and girls with navy blue or raspberry print.

If you are a parent of a premature baby, or if you are shopping for one, you will truly appreciate the difference Earlybirds makes with clothing that is tailored to your babies specific needs and shape. When buying Earlybirds or Bigger Birds by Earlybirds you are also doing your share in supporting a number of baby and children’s charities including Life’s Little Treasures Foundation, SIDS and Kids and Ronald McDonald House.
