From cot to single: ergoPouch ‘Stretch Sheet’

Cot size, single size and queen size, boy colours, girly shades and of course spares of everything… being a large family of seven it is no surprise our bedlinen collection is quite significant. I have often wished I could use the same gear for the cot and single beds, it would save me so much space and be much kinder on the family budget too! Well, thanks to ergoPouch you can:


On Sunday I finally got Hip Daddy to assemble this pretty bunk for the two big girls, doesn’t it look lovely teamed up with these gorgeous pastel ergoPouch Stretch Sheets?

ergopouch-bamboo-sheetAs the name suggests the brand new ergoPouch Bamboo Stretch Sheets (RRP $39.95) are super soft and very stretchy, in fact they are so stretchy they are designed to fit from cot (yes, including those tricky sized and odd shaped cots) all the way up to a proper single bed! That means one single sheet will last you from baby to teen stage and beyond, now that’s a good investment. 

Made with a luxurious blend of bamboo viscose jersey and a touch of elastane for extra flexibility ergoPouch sheets are high quality, soft to touch and gentle against the skin. Bamboo is often praised for its wonderful antibacterial properties, its breathability and the way it assists temperature control, making it a perfect pick all year around. Allergy sufferers will be pleased to know that ergoPouch Stretch Sheets proudly carry the tick of approval from the Eczema Association Australasia.


Initially I was sceptical about the ‘one-size-fits-all’ description, expecting a fit so tight you could hear the seams groan in despair, but I was pleasantly surprised. The Bamboo Stretch Sheets easily snapped around our thick single mattresses with the strong, elasticised trim staying neatly in place.


Not only are ergoPouch Stretch Sheets a smart decision for your family budget, they also keep your linen cupboard tidy and easy to manage. There is no more need to hunt for a specific sheet to fit a certain bed or grabbing the wrong sheet during a midnight change of linen, you can use your ergoPouch sheets on all of the kids’ beds. Comfortable, convenient and cost-effective, it’s a big thumbs up from me!

The ergoPouch Bamboo Stretch Sheet is currently available in four stylish colours: Grey, Mint, Natural and Pink.

Snooze in style with ergoPouch

It’s been a rather slow start this year but it looks like warmer weather has finally arrived, yay! I have got my fingers crossed that summer won’t let it us down and we’re in for some beautiful weather. I love the longer days, the blue skies, cold ice blocks and having less washing (that’s why I love dresses!).


The only tricky thing about the Summer season is knowing what to put on little Harriet at night time, making sure she is comfortable, safe and at the perfect temperature. Thankfully ergoPouch takes the guessing out of baby bedtime with these gorgeous new arrivals.

ergopouch-summer-sleep-bagDesigned with Australia’s hot weather in mind the light and airy ergoPouch 0.2 TOG Jersey Sleep Bag (RRP $34.95, size 8-24 months) is the perfect summer pick for your precious bundle. This stylish sleep bag is made with luxurious organic cotton that is super soft, breathable and gentle against baby’s delicate skin, it’s ideal for little ones suffering from eczema or other skin conditions.

After ten months of cocooning baby Harriet to sleep and a tricky transition period she has now well and truly accepted the arms-free lifestyle, so it’s out with the swaddle and in with the sleeping bag. The Jersey Sleep Bag is comfy and cosy yet spacious enough for little hips to move around freely, earning the important tick of approval from the International Hip Dysplasia Foundation.


Committed to ultimate comfort and safety this lovely ergoPouch design has no scratchy, noisy velcro to irritate Harriet’s skin and no small buttons that could come off, it opens and closes in one quick zip with the end of the zip being neatly covered by a small fabric flap so the neckline is soft and smooth. Bonus: The two-way zip allows for easy nappy access without having to take off the whole sleep bag making midnight changes a breeze.


ergoPouch sleeping bags are available in a range of TOG ratings, design and sizes to suit little nappers from 2 months up to 6 years old. In line with the SIDS guidelines ergoPouch sleep bags provide the warmth and comfort babies require for a restful sleep without the need for (potentially dangerous) loose bedding. Not sure which product/TOG rating to choose? Use the handy ergoPouch Finder to find the best match for your child and his/her sleeping environment, easy as pie.

ByKay Carry Your Love

Big Birthday Bash – Day 19

Two months ago I introduced you to Dutch label ByKay, I showed you how I wear our youngest child in the ByKay Mei-Tai Deluxe Denim and we gave a beautiful ByKay Baby Carrier away to a lucky reader. Unfortunately with giveaways there can (usually) only be one winner resulting in many sad faces, which is why the lovely team at ByKay Australia decided to offer up a second ByKay carrier for our Big Birthday Bash:

Up for grabs ByKay Essential Bluetoday is a gorgeous ByKay Essential Baby Carrier ($89.95) in your choice of colour, with seven great colours to choose from there is a perfect shade for everyone. Made from soft, stretchy cotton jersey this wrap style baby carrier will keep your hands free and your little one comfy and cosy from birth up to 10-12 kg. You even get a free storage bag for your ByKay carrier, although I think your carrier will be in use most of the time so you’ll hardly need it.

As an added bonus the winner of this Big Birthday Bash giveaway will receive a cute ByKay hat to match his/her new carrier, imagine the adorable photos you can take of your stylish baby!

Toddle On

With all the recent media coverage on underpaid factory employees and child workers in poor underdeveloped countries people have become much more aware of where their clothes are made, and so they should. When owner Clarissa of Australian webstore Toddle On discovered UK label Immink she knew she was on to a winner: designed and made in the UK from premium 100% organic cotton Immink offers all the peace of mind customers are looking for and now Australian customers can get their hands on it too:

A new arrival on our shores, Immink

A new arrival on our shores, Immink

If you love timeless, durable, simple but funky unisex fashion with a retro twist you will love the brand new Immink collection that has just arrived on the virtual Toddle On shelves. Toddle On is the only Australian stockist of this refreshing new range and the current collection is so new it is not even for sale in the UK, its own home country, yet! If you like what you see make sure you keep an eye on the Toddle On Facebook page as more new styles are just around the corner.

Immink Denim Easy TrouserEach Immink garment is carefully created to be comfortable, practical, a breeze to wash and wear and easy to layer with other clothing. Not only are the organic cotton jersey fabrics soft and gentle on your child’s skin and kind on the environment, the clothing is also designed to be extremely durable so it can be handed down again and again; that makes Immink gentle on your wallet too!

Immink Tassel HoodieThe gorgeous Immink Tassel Hoodie ($44.95, size 6-24 months) is my favourite piece. As you know I have a soft spot for navy, it is such a great unisex colour and the cheerful sunshine yellow accents really make it pop. Even if the weather is sad and grey you can still add a splash of colour to your day. This would look fantastic together with the comfy Denim Crash Trouser with matching yellow waistband, or (if you’re really brave) the bright Sunshine Yellow Leggings.
