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.

Elektra

Airports, planes, beach houses, holiday cabins, spare bedrooms… when it comes to sleeping arrangements this holiday is full of diversity. Especially for young children sleeping in an unfamiliar environment can be a bit scary, so we’re trying our best to keep our tribe calm and comfortable the best we can. We’ve come well prepared with their favourite cuddly toys and night lights and miss Sybbie has even brought her cosy Elektra nap time buddy:

Cloud9 Syb

After the huge success of the original Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat last year designer and mum Jessica has been busy working on an extended range of Cloud9 Nap Mat to fit kids of all sizes (and even mamas who are desperate for a snooze!).

Cloud9 Regular PlusThe Cloud9 Regular Plus Nap Mat (RRP $49.95) is the perfect value for money combo. Made from easy-care polyester this awesome on-the-go sleeping solution for little nappers is a breeze to clean (machine wash), dries quickly and is stain resistant which is a must for cheeky toddlers. Young kids love getting comfy under a soft blankie and thanks to the new 93cm long quilted blanket (total mat length 100cm) there is plenty of snuggle space.

Cloud9 Deluxe Nap MatIts bigger sibling the Cloud9 Deluxe Nap Mat (RRP $59.95) boosts an even longer blanket (100cm, total mat length 125cm) which makes it the perfect size for miss Sybbie. For a more luxurious sleep the Deluxe Nap Mat has a 100% soft and breathable cotton blanket and a thicker mat for added comfort. As with all Cloud9 Nap Mats the pillow is removable and the mats can be machine washed, yay for busy mamas who have no time for hand washing!

Nap Mats Rolled UpDesigned for use at home, daycare, sleepovers and holidays Cloud9 Nap Mats are lightweight and have a convenient carry handle for easy transport. The handy buckle closure helps keep the mats neatly rolled up and compact in size while travelling or in storage. With lots of great colours and prints to choose from and a neat name tag on the outside all kids can have their own unique Nap Mat with no chance of mix-ups.

Fly Babee

With just over 4 months to go until our European holiday I am starting to get very excited. I can’t wait to see my loved ones again and of course to introduce baby Harriet to her Dutch family. As she will be 11 months old when we travel Hattie will not get a seat on the plane, but thankfully we received confirmation that a bassinet has been allocated to us. Together with our super handy Fly Babee that means she’ll hopefully be able to snooze in peace during the flight:

Fly Babee

Hailed as a real must-have for travelling families the award-winning Fly Babee (RRP $99.95) is the world’s first sleep-easy cover designed for airline bassinets, pram carry cots and strollers. It’s compact, portable and extremely light-weight (just 600 grams!), yet big enough to comfortably fit around airline baby beds and large prams and provide your baby with a private place for a little nap.

Fly Babee Storage BagThe practical pop-up design makes Fly Babee extremely easy to use, it unfolds in the blink of an eye and attaches to the bassinet or pram frame with simple clips. This same strong pop-up frame creates a safe, spacious ‘dome’ around your baby without a claustrophobic feel or the risk of collapsing. When not in use you can keep your Fly Babee cover safely tucked away in the handy carry bag (included) which attaches to your pram with two velcro straps.

Fly Babee Pram CoverFly Babee is packed with plenty of other great features to make travelling with a baby a little easier, for example block-out fabric that locks out over 90% of surrounding light, 100% breathable fabric to avoid overheating and a convenient ‘Chance a Glance’ window so parents can have a little safety-peek without disturbing your tiny dreamer. Whether it’s a walk around the block, a short domestic trip or a long international flight, Fly Babee takes the stress out of your next family adventure.

Elektra

As we open up our 2016 calendar it once again hits me how quick our little ones grow. In just a few weeks our beautiful Juliet will start school and our little miss Sybbie will make an early start at kindy later in the year, at least I will still have Harriet at home to keep me company!

Cloud9 Nap Mat Girls

Being away from their comfortable, safe environment can be quite daunting for young children, but Elektra Bub, Tots & Kids Shop makes naps away from home easy and fun with their latest mum-invention.

Cloud9Whether your child is off to daycare, kindy, grandma’s, a sleepover or even just camping in the living room, the brand new Elektra Cloud9 Nap Mat (RRP $89.95) takes the hassle out of naps. This all-in-one bedding set includes a sleeping mat with attached blanket and pillow and together they effortlessly roll up into one compact, portable bundle. No more hunting for individual bedding items and no lost bits either, saving your precious time AND money.

Designed by real parents the Cloud9 Nap Mat gets the thumbs up from everyone: Not only is it colourful, fun and easy to use for small kids, it is also practical, durable and machine washable (perfect for busy mamas). The padded mat and blanket are comfortable and warm, the removable high quality, hotel grade pillow is soft and cosy and the durable, stain resistant outer material is sure to stand the accidental spills and rough and tumble of active kids.

Cloud9 Nap Mat

You can even personalise the Nap Mat on the outside using the name label, making it easy for your child to recognise their mat and ensuring there are no mix-ups at kindy or daycare.

Tiny Love

As you probably know by now our gorgeous little Sybil is proving to be quite the challenge in the sleep department. At almost 8 months old she is still waking up many times over night and most nights we are lucky to get 5 hours of broken sleep. In the early days she already refused to sleep in her cot, often falling asleep in her bouncer oblivious to the noise of her siblings and other loud sounds around her.

Rocker Napper RedWhile I would have preferred her to sleep in her own bed I came to accept that this was the only way she’d get some sleep and I could spend some much needed time with the other children (and on a rare occasion get something done in the house), but I was a bit worried about her sleeping sitting up that much. Good news: there is a solution for little rocker nappers like our cheeky lady, check out the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper from Tiny Love.

Tiny Love Rocker NapperThe 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is a multi functional (and very stylish) piece of baby furniture that can be used for feeding, playing and sleeping. The reclining seat has three different settings, ranging from laying flat to sitting up so babies can sit/rest in a position that suits them best (particularly useful when your baby suffers from reflux!). If your baby falls asleep while sitting up you can simply lay the seat flat in one simple action, creating a comfortable, safe and cosy little bassinet-like bed.

Tiny Love Rocker Napper (2)Of course the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is fitted with plenty of other great features to help make your life with a newborn easier, starting with the soothing rocking motion. The rounded frame allows for gentle movement in all three reclining positions or you can ‘lock’ the frame to keep it still. Your little bundle will love listening to the different tunes and looking at/playing with the dangling toys and lights on the adjustable arm.

Whether you prefer striking red, cool blue or neutral brown, there is a Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper ($159.95) to suit your taste and decor. Unlike most other rockers on the markets this hip design has a very generous weight limit of 18kg so it will last you much longer than other alternatives. We only discovered the Rocker Napper when Sybil was 4 months old but we have used it a lot since and judging by this happy face we’ll be enjoying it for a long time to come. It’s such an easy seat to take from room to room and it’s very sturdy even for a wrigglepot like her.
