Now that Spring has officially begun it is only a matter of time before the weather starts warming up. I have to say I am very much looking forward to nights without extra blankets, sleep socks and worrying about the kids being cold. With the warmer season in mind Love To Dream has just released this soft and scrumptious new sleep bag for your precious bundle:

Nuzzlin Logo

The brand new 1.0 TOG Nuzzlin Sleep Bag (RRP $59.95, size 4-36 months) is made using so-called ‘New Generation Muslin’, a super soft and extra light cotton knitted fabric that will keep your little dreamer cool and comfortable all night long. This gentle and 100% natural cotton is a particularly great choice for babies with sensitive skin, after all we all want the best for our precious babies!

Nuzzlin Sleep Bags

Parents across the globe have come to know and love Love To Dream for its cleverly designed products and the Nuzzlin range definitely lives up to the expectations. The adorable 1.0 TOG sleeping bags, available in three fresh and fruity summer colours, are fitted with lots of handy features that will make your busy life easier.


Take for example the zip that opens up all the way, not only does it make nappy changes a breeze, it also allows you to fully open the bag to reduce drying time. I also love the extra stretch that allows for plenty of movement for your active baby and the fabric tabs that safely cover the zipper and press studs. The only question remains, which design is your favourite: Yellow Melon, Aqua Pear or Pink Elephant?

I have a confession to make: I am addicted to buying Aden + Anais swaddles. Whether I am pregnant or not, the sight of all those gorgeous Aden + Anais wraps always make my heart beat a little faster and I simply can’t resist buying a few more. While I have plenty of wraps left from our last bubba I have already put away some more for our new arrival, my best excuse was that they were on sale!

Aden + Anais Swaddles

Aden + Anais 4-pack Swaddles (from $27.45)

When people ask me about my number one must-have for a new baby I always vote for Aden + Anais wraps. They are such a useful, versatile, stylish and practical baby gift and you could easily use a few at the same time. When we have a new baby in the house we generally use one as a wrap, one as a sun cover on the pram, one as a mattress cover in the carrycot, one in my nappy bag and one for breastfeeding privacy and clean-ups. Now you can see why I need a whole stack of them!

When you don’t know the gender, you just have to buy both!

In my opinion Aden + Anais swaddles are always excellent value for money (they wash beautifully and really last) but of course it’s even better if you can stock up while they are on sale. If you are in need of some Aden + Anais goodies you better pop in at The Little Haven, who currently offer up to 50% off all Aden + Anais products. You can pick up a 4-pack of wraps for as little as $27.45, that’s an unbeatable price!

We don’t know the gender of our new baby just yet but that hasn’t stopped me from shopping. With prices this good I grabbed both pinks and blues, after all we know one of them will have to be right. Aside from the swaddles you can also pick up Aden + Anais blankets, comforter toys, sleeping bags and wash cloths, all heavily reduced. Be quick as stock as limited and sure to sell out.

Hodge Podge Baby

We may not know the gender of our baby just yet but that hasn’t stopped me from stocking up on gorgeous wraps already, I simply can’t resist a beautiful swaddle. One to sleep in, one as a change mat cover, one as a breastfeeding cover, one as a spare in your nappy bag, one as a pram shade… a simple piece of fabric with so many uses.

Hodge Podge Peggles

If you’ve ever popped your muslin wrap on your baby’s pram as a quick and easy sun shade you have probably noticed it doesn’t always stay put. All it takes is a sudden breeze, a quick peek at your sleeping baby or a gentle tug from little hands and your wrap slides off. No more of that this time around thanks to these clever babies from Hodge Podge Baby:

Pram PegsShaped like fluttery little butterflies Peggles (RRP $19.95, 2-pack) are much more than handy pram pegs, they are also a sweet decoration showing that practical and pretty go very well together. Of course they can be used to attach your wrap elsewhere too, you can snap them onto your baby carrier to block out sun or wind or clip them onto your capsule for a bit of privacy during nap time, now that’s handy.

Peggles Pram Pegs are currently available in six stylish colours to perfectly suit your pram, your nappy bag or personal taste. They make a unique and useful gift for a baby shower or new arrival and priced at under $20 they won’t break the bank. Handy tip: If you sign up as a Hodge Podge Baby VIP you get 10% off your first order.

Our four kids just love bath time: splashing in the water, filling the bowls, squeezing the ducks, painting with bubbles… You’d think they would be grumpy to get out but they love that part too, as long as I wrap them up like a ‘sausage in a jacket’. At aden + anais they know how much little ones enjoy that cosy, comfortable feeling of being scooped up in a soft towel which is why they have released a gorgeous new range of baby bath linen:

Aden + Anais Bath Linen

From teeny tiny newborns to cheeky tots, aden + anais has got them all wrapped up in style with their Baby Bath Wraps, Toddler Towels and Hooded Towel & Washcloth Sets in a range of sweet colours and designs.

Baby Bath WrapStarting at the youngest swimmers the Baby Bath Wrap (RRP $44.95) makes it super easy to cover that slippery bundle after the bath. Made from plush terry and finished with a soft muslin cotton hood and easy-to-use tie the Baby Bath Wrap is gentle against your baby’s delicate skin and keeps cold chills at bay. There are currently five different boy, girl and gender neutral designs to choose from.

Hooded Towel SetPacked in a neat aden + anais gift box the 2-piece Hooded Towel & Washcloth Set (RRP $44.95, available in Water Baby White, Rock Star Blue and Bathing Beauty Pink) makes a perfect present for a special little person. We use aden + anais washcloths all the time and they are fantastic, I love how the muslin cotton fabric gets softer the more you wash it (no one likes cleaning their face with a rough, hard face washer!).

Toddler TowelYour baby will get bigger and outgrow the hood but they’re never too old for a snuggly warm towel after your bath, if only they made the Toddler Towel (RRP $37.95) in my size! These large towels are ideal for growing toddlers, they are available in aden + anais’ familiar prints Princess Posie, Jungle Jam and Twinkle as well as the cool new Fluro Pink and Fluro Blue star design which will no doubt get the thumbs up from little trendsetters.
