I thought I was busy preparing for our new addition to arrive but compared to Lorna at Gummy Babies that was just a piece of cake. Not only did she get ready for the arrival of her third bundle of joy, she also managed to give the Gummy Babies website a complete makeover at the same time! The new website looks fantastic and is even mobile friendly so you can shop on-the-go with your phone or iPad.

To celebrate the new Gummy Babies website they have a great special on Amber Teething Necklaces: Order a new Amber Teething Necklace for just $19.95 (save 20%) and receive free shipping Australia wide! Offer ends February 16, 2013.

Our new nursery actually has quite a few Gummy Babies pieces in it, I just love Lorna’s taste for natural, eco friendly products and I am sure her nursery is full of them too. She has selected some fantastic brands like Aden+Anais and BabyLuxe Organic that are well known for their high quality materials and stylish designs, parents all over the world love them. I packed one of the gorgeous organic cotton Aden+Anais Muslin Wraps in my hospital bag, they are super soft and a lovely big size.

Dash Baby Side Tie VestIf you are looking for a present for a new bundle of joy you’ll be pleased to know that Gummy Babies has plenty of options for you. One of my favourites is this sweet Dash Baby Organic Cotton Tie Vest ($45 for a twin pack). The warm red colour is perfect for both boys and girls and there are yoga pants available to match. Dressing baby is a breeze with the practical side tie closure, anything to make life with a newborn easier.

Alphabet CaseNew to the Gummy Babies online store are a large range of wooden toys that are durable, eco-friendly and educational. Take for example this colourful Alphabet Case ($36.95): not only does it help children learn the ABC, it is also a lacing set, can be used for block building and includes a clear lid/white board bottom for those first writing exercises. So many awesome uses all in one box!

Sunday Coffee with Gummy Babies

Like many other mothers mum Lorna dreaded the moment she would have to go back to work and leave her little ones in daycare, so she decided to start a venture of her own and open an online store called Gummy Babies. At Gummy Babies you’ll find eco friendly, practical, useful products for busy Australian families and shipping within Australia is always free. Gummy Babies allows Lorna to stay at home with her boys and you get to shop in this lovely store, a double win!

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
My ideal Sunday at the moment (being 25 weeks pregnant) involves breakfast in bed made by hubby always joined by the two boys. Then a trip to either the beach for a lovely swim or a bike ride round the coast. Anything outdoors.

Why did you start Gummy Babies?
I started Gummybabies after I realised I would have to return back to work and put my babies into full time daycare. I was ready to work but not quite ready to leave them. I’ve always wanted to work from home and after the success I’ve had with the Amber Teething Necklaces I thought it would be perfect to put together all the things I love and combine them in an easy to use site. Including free shipping was a big thing for me.

What do you like most about running your own store?
I love being able to contribute to our families income and also be there for my two boys. I can take them out to the park in the mornings and do my orders during the day. I love having the social contact with my customers, talking about their little ones and sharing experiences.

What is your favourite product at Gummy Babies?
My favourite product would have to be the Amber Necklaces. I’ve used them for both boys and had no teething issues. I believe its also helped with their exzema. Which is almost non excistant. I have also been wearing my necklace for nearly two years now and its helped take away the swelling and inflamation from my knee. I also love the new Organic Aden + Anais cot sheets. They are beautifully soft and I especially love the designs. They are perfect for babies sensitive skin. I can’t wait for my new baby to sleep on them. They compliment any nursery decor.

What would you recommend as a must-have product for new mums?
I would recommend all mums invest in some beautiful swaddle wraps like the Organic cotton aden + anais wraps. The large size makes them perfect to use as a swaddle, sun shade on the pram, breast feeding cover up. The more you wash them the softer they become.

I know many of you have already fallen in love with the beautiful Aden + Anais muslin wraps, myself included. They are well known for their great quality, stylish design, softness, durability and (very important) size, all important features to look for when selecting bedlinen for your baby. What you may not know is that the Aden + Anais family has grown and the gorgeous new Aden + Anais muslin cot sheets are now available from Gummy Babies.

Using fully certified organic cotton the Aden + Anais fitted cot sheets ($59.95) are a super soft and super safe choice for your precious little bundle. Don’t worry about muslin being too thin to be comfortable, these sheets feature a double layer for extra comfort. The fitted cot sheets are designed to fit all cots, including the popular Boori range. There are 4 different designs available in store matching the current muslin wrap range.

Bedtime with Aden + Anais

After a few weeks of next to no sleep I can only wish we were still in the newborn stage, when all it took was a nice swaddle and our babies slept all night through. Sleep is so important for little ones and for parents too, if the kids sleep well you will feel much happier and more rested the next day. My three always slept wrapped for the first 7 months (my youngest even 10 months) of their life and after that they moved on to a sleeping bag which worked really well. If you are looking for a soft, snuggly and stylish sleep solution for this winter look no further than the Aden + Anais range from Gummy Babies.

The Aden + Anais muslin wraps are famous for their beautiful patterns and generous size, at 120 x 120cm they last for months and the extra fabric will ensure your baby doesn’t burst out of the wrap at the tiniest stretch of arms or legs. The wraps are made of organic cotton to provide a safe environment for baby that is free of chemicals and gentle on the skin. There is choice from lots of neutral, boys and girls styles.

Once that time comes to ditch the wrap (always a little sad but it will happen sooner or later) the Aden + Anais sleeping bags will provide all the comfort and warmth your baby needs. The sleeping bags are designed to replace the need for loose bedding which reduces the risk of SIDS. They are made of 100% cotton muslin which is soft and breathable making them ideal for both summer and winter.

At the moment the youngest member of our household is not her usual happy self. She has a decent number of teeth already (at only 15 months old) but I think some more are on the way , at least I hope that is what it is otherwise I really have no idea. To help ease the discomfort she is using both a teether for her to bite and chew on (more about that another day) as well as an amber teething necklace from Gummy Babies.

Gummy Babies is an Australian store filled with great products for babies, kids and even adults. Most items in store are chosen because of their gentle, eco-friendly qualities, something that is very important to many modern Australian parents. The range has been handpicked by parents just like you, who wanted to make it easy for you to shop from home for quality pieces for your own family or gifts. To make your shopping experience as pleasant as possible you don’t have to worry about postage, all Australian orders ship free of charge.

The Gummy Babies range consists of some well known labels like Dandelion, Lamaze and Aden + Anais, this last name is famous for it’s fabulous baby wraps and sleeping bags in the most gorgeous prints. This Aden + Anais Cozy Sleeping Bag ($48, size medium, large and extra large) is available in a boy and girl design and is made of 100% natural muslin to keep your baby cool this summer.

I admit that I had my doubts about the effect (if any) amber would have on babies but figured it was at least worth a try. The baby has only just started wearing her necklace but my three year old daughter wears hers all the time and we have definitely seen a change in her behaviour, she seems happier. At Gummy Babies you’ll find Teething Necklaces in several colours to suit your taste and at the moment they are on special for just $19.95.

Although more and more parents are getting to know the comforting properties of amber for children there are many adults who don’t know that amber can be beneficial for adults too. Amber contains a natural analgesic which can offer effective relief for rheumatoid pains, migraines, colds and general aches and pains. Gummy Babies stocks both amber bracelets and necklaces for adults, prices start at $18.
