As the birth of our new son or daughter is coming closer I have slowly started to go through my ‘baby checklist’. Of course I have held on to quite a few pieces (most of it to be honest!), but after multiple owners some items are looking a little worse for wear or are just not the right season. I recently ordered a beautiful stack of organic cotton baby clothes from Sustainababy and am so pleased with them! If you’ve had your eye on some gorgeous eco-goodies too now is the time to shop up a storm in the Sustainababy Birthday Sale:

Fill up your shopping basket at Sustainababy and save a huge 30% off storewide, simply enter the code ‘5THBIRTHDAY’ at checkout. Offer ends July 19, 2015, excludes gift vouchers, bulk nappy packs and mattresses.


The awesome news is that Sustainababy is bigger than the name suggests and it holds treasures for the whole family. Get organised for your new bub, re-stock your gift cupboard, pack a re-usable lunch, go green on your cleaning supplies or treat yourself to something special, all at 30% off:

Purebaby Grow SuitI first discovered Australian fashion label Purebaby when I was pregnant with baby no.3 and have been a big fan every since. My two youngest girls have both worn the Purebaby newborn range and I can’t wait to see our new addition in these lovely soft Purebaby Grow Suits (RRP $29.95, now $20.97) too. Made from 100% certified organic cotton the range is free from nasty chemicals and gentle against sensitive baby skin. I love how the smallest sizes of these sweet suits have fold-over mittens, another great ‘safety’ feature for itchy bubbas!

YumboxWith school going back next week don’t forget to give your child’s lunchbox and drink bottle a little check-over and replace if necessary. Like many families worldwide our kids use Yumbox bento-style lunch boxes (RRP $39.95, now $27.97) which are absolutely fantastic and very practical, while available in quite a few stores these days I have NEVER seen them on sale at such a great price. Sustainababy currently has the awesome Yumbox Panino in stock in three different colours.

Plan Toys XylophonePersonally I love getting organised nice and early for birthdays and Christmas, it saves me running around in rush and if you shop the sales you can save yourself some big bucks too. The timeless wooden Plan Toys make lovely gifts that are high quality and durable, there are so many fabulous designs to choose from to suit boys and girls of different ages. What a great way to support your child’s development and support the environment at the same time.

Big Baby Shower – Day 21

We all want to give our baby the best start in life, in the big things but in the small things too. Through her online ecostore and a range of fantastic e-courses eco-mama Laura helps educate Aussie parents on what’s best for their families and the environment, one simple step at a time.


At Sustainababy you’ll find healthy, green and sustainable alternatives to your important baby needs, I am sure you will love all the brands and products Laura has sourced from around the globe.

Jack 'n Jill ToothpasteWhether you like it or not, at some point in time your baby’s first tooth will make an appearance and generally this involves quite a lot of tears and broken nights. Keeping that shiny white bud clean and healthy is easy with fruity fresh Jack ‘n Jill Natural Toothpaste (RRP $5.95), made right here in Australia. With yummy flavours like blackcurrant, banana and blueberry, xylitol to fight tooth decay and no sugar, colours, SLS and preservatives you can brush those little toothy pegs without worries.

VulliYou can also offer your teething baby some much needed distraction and relief for sore gums with these funky Vulli teething toys (from the makers of the famous Sophie the Giraffe toy). They are handmade in France from the finest natural rubber and finished with food quality paints so your baby can happily and safely chew away on Chan (Blue), Pie (Pink) or Gnon (Yellow). They’re the perfect size for little hands and suitable from birth onwards.

Baby BeehindsThis week the eco-spotlight is on cloth nappies, they are a reusable, eco-friendly, budget-friendly (and of course very cute!) alternative to disposable nappies and this week you can stock up with 15% off all Baby Beehinds cloth nappies. Whether you are just getting started or want to add to your cloth nappy stash, you’ll have a hard time resisting all this fluffy goodness! Simply enter the code ‘WEEKLYSPECIAL14’ at checkout, offer ends May 24 and excludes bulk nappy packs.

Christmas Countdown – Day 3

While the wonderful message behind Christmas is eternal (and free!) unfortunately over the years the season’s celebrations have became a lot less durable and very expensive. Families spend big bucks on food, decorations and gifts and bin after bin are filled with wasted produce and packaging in the days after. This year why not make Christmas more sustainable by shopping Australia’s favourite eco store Sustainababy:


In store you will find a wonderful selection of toys, baby products, clothing, home cleaning goods, gifts, linen and much more, all carefully chosen for their eco friendly properties. Whether you are shopping for a special little person, mum, dad, grandma, neighbour or teacher, Sustainababy has got something for everyone.

So Young Lunch BoxThis new So Young Insulated Lunch Box ($34.95) is perfect for a summer picnic, car trip snacks, on the go morning tea and of course school lunch when the holidays have finished. All So Young lunch boxes are made with convenient wipe clean coated linen and are free from PVC, phthalates and BPA so you can pack your child a tasty meal safe from nasties. Wear it by the handy carry handle or go hands free with the included (detachable) strap.

Dandelion Wand RattleThis adorable Dandelion Star Wand Rattle ($15.95, ages birth+) would have to be one of the cutest baby gifts I have ever seen and it’s very budget friendly. Each star wand is lovingly handmade with brightly coloured pesticide‐free bamboo rayon thread and filled with natural corn fibre filling so it’s completely safe for your precious bundle to play with and put in her mouth. Don’t worry, you can even wash it in the washing machine to keep it clean and full of magic for your little fairy.

Earth Tribe Wood Block Printing KitSustainababy does not only have the green gifts covered, they’ve got the Christmas wrapping sorted too with a range of eco friendly wrapping paper, gift tags, a reusable Santa Sack and this unique Earth Tribe Wood Block Printing Kit ($44). What a great way to create your own personal Christmas cards or gift tags, you can even use the hand carved blocks to turn plain paper into custom made wrapping paper! Three jars of fabric acrylic paint, a hand kerchief and printing pad are included.

I don’t know about you but I am feeling rather queasy after reading in the media about the dangerous chemicals used in a long list of clothing and home wares. Let’s be honest, many of us (myself included) are naive when it comes to toxins and chemicals and we assume that products sold in Australian stores are safe but it turns out that’s far from the truth.
