The uggs are back in use, the woodfire is on and the beds are made with flannelette sheets… the cold season has well and truly arrived! She may be old enough for a proper girl bed, but Hattie is definitely not big enough to manage the sheets and keep her quilt on throughout the night. Of course I hate to think that she’s laying there in the cold, so I trust ergoPouch to keep her warm all night long:

Super soft, padded and snuggly warm, stepping into a ergoPouch 2.5 TOG Winter Sleep Suit (RRP $64.95) is pretty much like being wrapped up in a cosy quilt that fits your body like a glove. I secretly wish they made these awesome sleep suits in my size too!

Over the years ergoPouch has become known around the globe for its dedication to natural fibres, offering parents a safe choice for their baby and the environment. By avoiding nasty chemicals and itchy synthetic fabrics ergoPouch has also earnt the tick of approval from the Eczema Association, great peace of mind for those with sensitive skin! The Winter Sleep Suit outer is made with 95% organic cotton with a touch of elastane to allow active kids to move around freely, while the thick 100% organic cotton filling keeps cold chills at bay with a 2.5 TOG rating.

As Hattie is past the sleeping bag stage the Winter Sleep Suit is the perfect next step, it’s just as comfortable and warm and at the same time it allows her to hop in and out of bed by herself and walk around too. Dressing your little sleepy head and midnight nappy checks/changes are a breeze thanks to the special three-way zip, opening up both the front and back. It also has super handy fold-over cuffs at the wrists (up to size 2) and ankles, allowing you to cover tiny toes and little hands in just a flash.

Sleep, what can I say… As a mum of five I get very little of it, in fact I can’t even remember the last time I slept a whole night without being woken by one or more of my beautiful children. Many people think it’s newborn babies who cause all these broken nights, but not in our house. We have swaddled all our little ones from birth and found it worked a treat, the night time trouble only started once they grew out of the wrap…


Going from the snug, safe haven of a swaddle to the big, wide world of flapping arms and kicking legs is a tricky and tiring transition for precious bundles and their parents. Thankfully Baby Loves Sleep owner and Aussie mama Lourdes, also known by her nickname Malou, is coming to the rescue of tired families across the country with this clever invention:

sleepy-hugs-greyThe unique, patent pending Sleepy Hugs sleep suit is designed to help you to gently and safely move away from the tight swaddle whilst maintaining that comforting, cosy feeling that so many babies need to get into a restful, deep sleep. The enclosed wing-like sleeves mimic the ‘restricted’ feel of a traditional swaddle without limiting arm movement and the spacious, wide sack allows for plenty of hip movement (and even a hip dysplasia harness).

Made from 100% soft, breathable cotton fabric Sleepy Hugs are perfect for the sensitive skin of newborns and those suffering from eczema and other skin conditions. Even better, thanks to the closed-in design small hands are kept safely away from the face to avoid scratching. To make midnight nappy changes as quick and easy as possible you can zip the suit open from the bottom, so convenient! Here’s to long nights and lazy naps for everyone…


The Sleepy Hugs sleep suit (RRP $59.95, ages 3 months – 12 months+) is currently available in four stylish designs to suit both boys and girls. Whether you live in a cold or hot climate, with both an Autumn/Winter and Spring/Summer weight to choose from you can rest assured your Sleepy Hugs suit will keep your baby comfortable all night long.

When Aromababy founder and mum-of-two Catherine Cervasio struggled to find natural organic products for her own baby many years ago she decided to take matters into her own hands and create a natural and organic skincare range for pregnancy, baby and the entire family. Aromababy was born and quickly claimed its place as one of the most loved organic skincare brands across the globe, from hospitals in Australia and New Zealand to national and international celebrities everyone simply loves Aromababy.

It has only just arrived in the Bean and Me online store and it’s already flying of the shelves, I am of course talking about the brand new Broken Tricycle AW 2014 collection.

The latest collection feels like a fresh breeze, the colours are vibrant and eye catching and the prints are quirky and fun. Sizes start at a tiny 0-3 months up to 3 year old, if you have a cheeky little tot that fits the bill be quick and secure your sizes before they sell out.

Broken Tricycle Penguin SweaterMy personal favourite piece is the Banjo Play Pant ($35), these fruity sherbet coloured pants are a perfect way to brighten up a dreary autumn day. The same pinky shade can be found in the gorgeous Cat Sweater ($40) so together these two pieces make a cute, cosy and very comfy outfit for active baby girls. If you have a little boy you can sport the sweater look too, get your groove on with this cool Penguin Sweater.

Broken Tricycle Banjo TrackieBecause Broken Tricycle clothing is made of organic cotton it is an ideal choice for children who suffer from eczema, allergies and sensitive skin.

Cold Power

The most heartwarming smile, the tiniest fingers and toes, big sparkling eyes and a cute little nose, I just love everything about babies except the large amounts of washing they create. Somehow I thought that one little person extra wouldn’t make much difference when it came to my already huge laundry pile, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. Just for fun I have collected all the washing I have done this week for the baby only (imagine all the winter washing from the other five of us on top of that!):

Tiny baby, big washing pile

Tiny baby, big washing pile

Cold Power Sensitive TouchCountless sets of clothes, bedlinen, wraps, towels and of course an enormous pile of burp clothes, our little Sybil is an expert at making dirty washing. Because of our experience with eczema in our older children we are very aware of the first symptoms and unfortunately it looks like Sybil may have inherited the same sensitive skin as the others. When it comes to skincare products and washing powder I try to avoid unnecessary ‘nasties’ that could irritate her delicate skin.

Because I do at least one wash every day we go through our detergent quite quickly so I was pretty happy to receive a bottle of the new Cold Power Sensitive Touch laundry liquid to try. Cold Power Sensitive Touch is hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested and is free from perfumes, something that often triggers irritation of both skin and airways. This ‘gentle’ promise is backed up by a partnership with the Eczema Association of Australasia so I felt confident it was a safe choice for our family. I have not noticed any difference in their breathing or skin so Cold Power has earnt a tick there.

We put it to the test: Approved!

We put it to the test: Approved!

Cold Power Sensitive Touch may be gentle on the skin but of course a laundry detergent is not very useful if the washing doesn’t come out clean. As the name suggests Cold Power stands out from other laundry products by its ability to deliver excellent results in cold water, saving you both energy and money. I will admit that I normally wash with warm water because my kids take out the no.1 prize when it comes to making stains and those stains don’t easily budge without hot water (or so I thought).

Cold Power SSI didn’t think they would but the cleaning results with Cold Power Sensitive Touch are identical to my ordinary washing powder, it looks like there are no more excuses for me not to go cold! A small number of really tough stains could not be lifted but to be fair my usual laundry detergent couldn’t get rid of them either (I tried!) so they needed a simple overnight soak, no problem at all.

Cold Power Sensitive Touch laundry detergent is available as a powder ($14.99, 2kg) and liquid ($14.99, 2L) and you can find it in the cleaning aisle of your local supermarket. One 2L bottle/2kg pack holds enough detergent for 44 washes (on average), that’s a lot even for a big family like ours. When you think of the energy and therefore money you save by using cold water I think Cold Power offers great value for money and of course it is better for the environment too.
