Our poor little Hattie can’t catch a break lately. After months of teething trouble her two bottom teeth have only just appeared and now the next two chompers are already making their way down. Nothing is safe from her sharp new toothy pegs so we are keeping teething toys on hand 24/7. If you are looking for a teething toy that ticks al the boxes you will love this awesome design by Jellystone Designs:

Jellystone Designs Rainbow Stacker

Designed right here in Australia and made with soft, safe, food grade silicone that is free from nasties like BPA and Phthalates the colourful Rainbow Teether Stacker (RRP $19.99, all ages) is sure to turn that grumpy frown upside down in a heartbeat.

Rainbow StackerCheeky tots will go crazy for the Rainbow Teether Stacker for many reasons: Its vibrant rainbow colours are appealing for little eyes, the washable pieces easy to hold for small hands and the interesting shapes and textures provide much needed relief for sore gums. And then there is the educational aspect, this clever stacking toy is a fantastic fine motor skills exercise and a fun way to learn different colours at the same time.

You can find this gorgeous baby teething toy in store at Australian online store Moose in the Moon.

Who would have thought, little Sybil is now eight months old and still no teeth. Her three siblings all cut their first tooth around six months old so I have been waiting for that first white bud to appear for a while without anything happening. Even though there are no teeth to show for it just yet she has been chewing and chomping away on anything she can get her hands on. To avoid her going through my handbag and digging up all kinds of unsuitable items to munch on we have given her her very own Bubba Bag instead:

Bubba Bag

The name says it all, the hugely popular Bubba Bag by Gumigem is a bag specifically made for babies. These cute blue neoprene bags are light weight and washable and filled with four gorgeous teething toys inspired by mama’s musthaves: car keys, a phone, a credit card and a purse. Each Bubba Bag toy is made from soft and flexible silicone that can safely be chewed on by teething babies without damaging those precious little teeth.

Bubba Bag Credit Card

The contents of the Bubba Bag ($40) are the perfect size for little hands and the bag is cleverly designed to stand up and stay open so babies can easily access their own toys by themselves which is great for their motor skills. Our little girl loves playing with these teething toys and we use them a lot when out and about, they’re just what you need when you need to keep your baby quiet and entertained in the car, at church or when visiting friends and family.

Bubba Bag Purse + Car Keys

The credit card, phone and purse toy can be used from birth, while the recommended age for the car keys is 10 months and up. Each toy has a different shape and colours to keep it interesting, baby Sybil is particularly keen on the bright red purse, because of the colour it is easy to spot and it looks like the knobs soothe her tender gums. She also uses the car keys to get to the hard-to-reach spots and she likes shaking them like a rattle (a very quiet one, thankfully).

At Gumigem they look further than just looks, all the Bubba Bag toys carry the CE mark and are non-toxic and washable. When your little one drops them on the ground or covers them with food or drool (as they will, the proof is in the picture!) you can just give them a good rinse and they’re good as new again. We love our Bubba Bag and it is no surprise that they sell out faster than Gumigem can get new ones in. To get your teething baby a Bubba Bag too simply place your pre-order online now, new stock is due to arrive next week.

You can tell Mother’s Day is around the corner by the type of junk mail in your letterbox. If you can believe the catalogues perfume, pyjamas, chocolates and toiletries are the most popular gifts and let’s not forget jewellery. Now I don’t know if it is just me but you would not make me happy with most of the jewellery in stores. Aside from the fact that it is often far from beautiful (in my opinion) most of it is also not practical for busy mums.


DahliaDelicate chains that brake at the tiniest pull of baby hands, small gaps for bacteria to grow in and rock solid (or even toxic!) materials that will damage that cute first tooth of your inquisitive, teething baby, surely there has to be a better option? Australian mama Jennifer decided to take matters into her own hands and designed a beautiful range of teething jewellery that is both safe and stylish for mum and baby and so Harper+Hudson was born.

WillowThe Harper+Hudson range offers a lovely selection of teething necklaces and teething bangles in a rainbow of colours and styles to suit your taste, mood and outfit. All products are made with non-toxic 100% food grade silicone that is gentle on baby’s gums and teeth. Silicone is a fantastic choice of material as it does not support the growth of bacteria, fungus or mould and it is also completely free from BPA, PVC, phthalates, cadmium and lead. No nasties near your baby!

AllegraBaby Sybil may not be teething just yet but she is starting to get a little fidgety while feeding, these colourful necklaces are a great distraction and she often grabs hold of them (no more scratching my skin or her own little hands). If I get to wear my necklace that is because my other two girls love wearing Harper+Hudson too. Handy for mum: You can even wash your Harper+Hudson jewellery in the dishwasher, how easy is that?

When tidying up our wardrobe on the weekend I came across a big bag full of beautiful necklaces and bracelets in all the colours of the rainbow. Before I became a mum I always used to wear jewellery, a different design every day to match my outfit. But that all changed when the twins came along and there were always little hands pulling, and tiny mouths chewing, on my precious jewels and I packed it all away. Especially for mums AND babies there is the new MummaBubba Jewellery.

MummaBubba Jewellery is designed right here in Australia by lovely mum Tash. Using high quality hospital grade silicone (also known as organic silicone) Tash has created a range of stylish jewellery pieces for mum that is free from BPA, PVC, cadmium and lead, so they are completely safe for baby! The current range consists of round pendants, twisted bangles and tulip bead necklaces and bracelets in all the hip colours of this season.

The MummaBubba Jewellery necklaces are fitted with a breakaway clasp so when pulled hard (something babies are surprisingly good at) it will just click open instead of the cord breaking and beads flying everywhere (or even worse, ending up in your baby’s mouth). Of course the range complies with AS NZ IOS 8124.1 2010 standards taking any safety worries off your mind.

The silicone will offer your baby much needed relief for tender gums when new teeth are trying to cut their way through and when your accessories need a wash after all that chewing they can easily be cleaned in warm soapy water or even the dishwasher. With prices starting at just $14.95 the MummaBubba Jewellery is very affordable so why not grab a few pieces so you always have a suitable colour to wear? After all, mums want to look stylish too!
