Call me crazy but I am already thinking ahead of what our kids should wear on our plane trip to Holland later in the year. With over 24 hours of travelling by plane and spending time at Kuala Lumpur Airport it is important I pick something that is comfortable, soft, practical and suited to different temperatures. I know that bamboo clothing will tick all those boxes so for the baby I might start with the Bamboo Care Yoga Pants from Bubzyboo.

We have had the Bamboo Care Yoga Pants for 3 months or so and she wears them all the time. At the time I picked the pale pink colour but I might invest in the white too for when I want to match it with other colours. They are super soft for playing and even sleeping in and so easy to put on and take off (perfect for on the plane). The pants are made of 70% organic bamboo and 30% organic cotton.

Bamboo and organic cotton fabrics are a great choice for little ones with sensitive or eczema prone skin, at the moment my little miss is doing great (except for her face and feet) but I know it can flare up with the smallest change of diet or weather. Another fabulous feature of bamboo is that it helps regulating the temperature, so during hot weather it cools down and the other way around, an ideal fabric choice for a cool plane trip and humid airports.

Within the Bamboo Care range you’ll find long and short sleeve onesies, yoga pants and singlets in pink, white and blue. Designed for babies the clothing is available in sizes 0-3, 3-6, 6-12 and 12-18 months. My little lady is very chubby so I feared she would be too big but the sizing is actually rather generous and there is plenty of room left for her to grow into these next few months.

Little Tee-Tee

Yesterday I had to settle a little argument (one of many to be honest) between my twins. Since I was wearing a dress, the baby was wearing a dress and my oldest daughter chose to wear one my son requested to wear a dress too. Now it has happened before where he had a little turn wearing a princess dress up or tried on a tiara but this time his twin sister told him that dresses and lip gloss are for girls, something that didn’t go down very well. The girls love dresses and they have been admiring the most gorgeous Little Tee-Tee dress that is hanging up ready for Christmas.

You can find the Little Tee-Tee label at Bubzyboo, a lovely new Australian store for babies, kids and even mums. What makes the Little Tee-Tee range so special is that every item is handmade and there is only one size range available of each style. The limited edition garments are lovingly created by an Australian mum of two, who has a passion for beautiful fabrics and materials and her designs are a clear example of her quality craftsmanship. Ribbons, lace, cheese cloth, Little Tee-Tee is all about the sweetest details so it is no wonder mums and little girls are loving it.

My personal favourite is this delightful Arielle dress (RRP $59, available in sizes 0-3 months up to 3 years old), isn’t it utterly adorable? I am determined to take plenty of photo’s this Christmas of my little lady wearing it. I am not usually a big fan of black on young children but somehow the Little Tee-Tee designer has pulled it off, using only the smallest amount of black lace to compliment the antique white cheesecloth beautifully. Now let’s hope my daughter realises that a girly dress like this requires lady like behaviour too, no rough and tumble allowed on Christmas day!

I don’t know what the weather is like were you are but here it is a bit of a mix, some days it is very warm and the kids run around in singlets and shorts, yet the next day it is much cooler and I have to get out the long sleeve tops and even cardigans. No matter what the days have been like, the nights are definitely not up to summer temperature yet so my son’s nice snugly Mida pyama’s from Bubzyboo are still getting a great workout.

Mida pyjama’s ($35.95, size 1-4) are designed right here in Australia and are made of lovely soft cotton. The 2-piece sets consist of a long sleeve top with beautiful applique and finely ribbed neck and cuffs matched with a cool pair of striped pants with elastic waist. The snug fit keeps little boys nice and warm and allows them to move freely, because no one likes bulky clothes that get in the way. There are currently three different styles available with owl, horse stick or spider web applique.

Of course Bubzyboo has more to offer than just pyjama’s (because as much as I would love it we just can’t walk in our pyjama’s all day), in store you’ll find products for babies, boys, girls and even mums. From clothing to sleepwear, toys to room decor, accessories and cloth nappies, owner Ranna has handpicked her favourites from Australian labels as well as overseas brands.

One of the Australian labels available at Bubzyboo is House of Bebe, offering a range of stunning baby slings that are made using the most divine fabrics. Baby wearing is becoming more and more popular and this collection proves that you can carry your baby in style. The Henna sling ($60, size small, medium and large) is my favourite, I just love the floral print in natural brown tones, a perfect choice for a stylish mum.
