As a mum of four young children I know all too well the drama baby teeth can cause, for little ones but for parents too! Tiny chompers cutting their way through sore gums is a painful process but luckily there’s some welcome relief in the shape of the gorgeous Mizzie:

Mizzie the Kangaroo

Mizzie the Kangaroo ToyMizzie is a 100% natural rubber teething and squeeze toy, designed right here in Australia by real parents like you and I. Not only is she made from 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Tree, she is also free from nasties like PVC, BPA, Nitrosamines and Phthalates and is finished with non-toxic food-grade dyes making her perfectly safe for little children to play with, smell and even chew on.

You’ll be surprised in how many ways this cute kangaroo toy is able to stimulate the senses of young children. Her colourful look and friendly face make her appealing to little eyes while her soft and rubbery texture is pleasant to touch. Mizzie’s gentle, and purely natural, rubbery scent will encourage baby’s smell and to stimulate baby’s hearing she sounds a funny squeak when you give her a squeezy hug. Every single Mizzie toy is individually handpainted, making each toy unique just like every baby is unique.

Measuring a generous 19cm in size and featuring interesting shapes like a long tail, legs and ears to meet those hard-to-reach molars at the back Mizzie offers plenty of teething relief, from the moment those first white buds start to appear up to the last chunky molars. Of course she meets Australian, European and American safety standards so parents can be sure they are purchasing a high quality, safe product.

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

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

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.

Bambino Bling

Yesterday I wrote how happy and thankful I am to still be breastfeeding our 5-month old girl. Now that I seem to have won my battle with mastitis I have moved on to another challenge: distraction. With three older siblings there is always something exciting happening around us and little Sybil is way too busy checking out all the action to concentrate on breastfeeding. Getting her back ‘at the table’ turned out to be surprisingly easy thanks to Bambino Bling.

Bambino Bling StephanieBambino Bling is a stylish range of teething necklaces and bracelets for hip mums, designed with love right here in Australia. Not only does this jewellery look hip and fashionable, as it is made from soft, chewable silicone this gorgeous range is also 100% safe for your precious bundle to bite and chew on and helps soothe the sore gums of teething babies. The bright colours, smooth shapes and interesting texture are sure to appeal to little eyes and hands.

Bambino Bling BeatriceCreated with real mums and real children in mind the Bambino Bling range is designed with no detachable parts and the clever safety breakaway clasp will release if baby tugs on your necklace too hard (much safer than all the beads coming loose and possibly cause a terrible accident). The colourful beads are non toxic and BPA free, which means no nasties near your baby’s mouth.

Bambino Bling HollyThere are so many different colours and styles of Bambino Bling necklaces available it is hard to pick a favourite, you can easily wear a new colour/style for every outfit and every day of the 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 I look at the beautiful gummy smile of our 1 month old I can hardly imagine that in just a few short months the first teeth will start to appear. While those little white stubs do look terribly cute they can cause a lot of trouble, not only for your baby’s (and as a result also your) mood but for your nice furniture too. Before you know it that stunning cot you picked out with so much care is likely to turn into a chewy treat, so check out Munch before it is too late.

Munch Teething Rail

Munch Teething Rails ($55) are specifically designed to protect your (expensive) cot and your child’s teeth at the same time. The rails are made from soft, chewable, durable TPE that is free from PVC, BPA, phthalates and other toxins so it is perfectly safe for little mouths to chew on. In fact, little ones will love this oversized ‘teething toy’ as it bounces back when chewed on and features multiple ridges that provide much needed teething relief.

Pink-cot-teething-rail-sameAs the Munch Teething Rail is a one-piece product there are no small gaps for germs to hide in making it a very hygienic design. When it comes to cleaning all you need is a wipe, it’s done in a flash and you don’t even need to take the rails off. This makes it a much cleaner option than fabric alternatives which soak up dribble (think of all that dried up drool!) and need to be removed for washing.

Limetini-strapsInstalling a Munch Teething Rail is a breeze, it attaches to your cot with adjustable velcro straps underneath (out of sight) or you can choose to use the stylish over-the-top Munch Straps. The length of the teething rail is a generous 1.3m so it will fit most cots, you simply cut it to fit your cot perfectly. The Munch Teething Rail is available in six stylish colours to compliment your baby’s nursery.

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!
