Initially I was going to call this post ‘the big gender reveal party’ but I feared that might get some people very excited thinking we were expanding our family so I changed it. In saying that, the girls have been having the best time with their own mini-version of a gender reveal party and they absolutely love the anticipation of uncovering pink or blue…

With six children our family is already larger than average, but that number is nothing compared to Baby Secrets… There are one hundred of these adorable babies to collect! Our four girls are rapidly expanding their brood with lots of sweet, funny and quirky little boys and girls joining the family.

Baby Secrets (ages 4+) is a new collectible toy range featuring small toy babies in pink miniature bath tubs. Each little baby enters the world with a crisp white nappy on, step two is to discover baby’s gender by dipping the baby into the bath water. In a matter of seconds the white nappy turns pink or blue, allowing the proud adoptive parent to name the new arrival and fill out his/her birth certificate (included). Welcome to the family Penelope Pineapple and Coco Cat!

Strawberry baby or snowman baby, donut baby or dolphin baby, basketball baby or birthday baby, there are so many different characters to collect and one even more rare than the other (but all equally cute!). The excitement of a ‘blind bag’ is hard to resist so you might find yourself bringing home a new baby from your next supermarket visit too.

Can’t get enough of the Baby Secrets fun? There are also several larger Baby Secrets Playsets available that allow keen baby-mamas and wanna-be dads to get even more parenting practice with a pram, bassinet, car, swing, rocking horse and more. Of course each play set comes with some new babies and a dip-and-discover bath tub too. Are you ready to reveal your babies’ secret?

Baby Secrets dolls have adjustable arms and legs, so you can properly sit them down on the swing or send them for a drive in their car. Made from a solid material they are really tough and durable and they’re a perfect compact size for little pockets (and of course Christmas stockings!). I’ve popped a few new babies in our holiday backpacks for our upcoming trip, such an easy way to keep my girls busy on the plane.

You can find the Baby Secrets range at all major toy stores and toy departments across Australia.

BBox Colour Pallet Concepts 8-14 (RGB)

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 22

Over the course of 8 years and five kids I have bought more than my fair share of baby goods, some were fantastic buys and others (in hindsight) a total waste of money. One thing I would buy all over again in a heartbeat is this fantastic b.box gem, for the past few years we’ve used ours daily and I still love it as much as I did on day one. If you want to see for yourself what I’m raving about make sure to join today’s Christmas Countdown giveaway:

b.box range

Designed right here in Australia by two clever mamas the award-winning b.box product range is fun, functional and fashionable, all rolled into one. Their innovative designs are all about making your life that little bit easier while adding a touch of style.

On one side the fabulous b.box Diaper Caddy (RRP $69.95) holds a huge stack of nappies and the other side is designed to neatly fit a big tub of baby wipes. Underneath a spacious slide-out drawer keeps your favourite nappy creams and lotions together so you have all your nappy change essentials within reach, every single time. The caddy even comes with a matching, fold-up, wipe-clean change mat, so handy!

While we do have a lovely change table in our baby’s nursery the reality is that I generally can’t be bothered to walk all the way to other end of the house (and leave the other kids by themselves). Our b.box Diaper Caddy has been living in our lounge room for several years where it has been my trusty change companion. The sturdy design is durable, strong and easy to keep clean, if it survives life in our big, busy family you can rest assured the quality is fantastic.

Long after your baby has grown out of nappies you can still enjoy your caddy as storage for eg. craft or sewing supplies, toiletries, hair accessories or toys. The b.box Diaper Caddy is currently available in five stylish colours to suit your decor and personal style perfectly. Which colours is your favourite?

BabyLove

After travelling across the globe with little miss Hattie on my hip I truly believe that changing a wriggly baby on a plane is an olympic sport. At the cheeky age of 12 months Harriet loves rolling away when you say no, not something I’d recommend on a wobbly change table above a dirty plane toilet! Thankfully I came well prepared and packed a generous stack of these new BabyLove lifesavers in my nappy bag:

Designed with active and curious boys and girls in mind the new BabyLove Wriggler Nappy Pants (size 7-11kg) take the struggle out of nappy changes with a convenient pull-up design.

Wriggler NappyWriggler Nappy Pants feel soft and comfortable and have a 360˚ stretchy waist, making them super flexible and ideal for little busy-bees who are on the move all day long. They are thoroughly tested for excellent absorbency so that they can be worn during the day and at night without having to worry about messy accidents. Thanks to the special ‘Tear Away Side Seams’ there’s no need to pull the full nappy down, just tear open and remove.

Wriggler Nappy PantsUsually Hattie would kick her legs, wiggle her bottom, pull away the nappy or roll over in an attempt to escape the dreaded nappy routine, but the Wriggler Nappy Pants quickly put a stop to all that cheekiness. Once her chubby little feet are in the job is pretty much done, just pull them up et voila! On a few occasions we even changed her standing up which is very handy in cramped spaces.

So far I have no leaks to report (both day and night) and Hattie’s skin is smooth and squishy as usual so it’s thumbs up from us. I am very pleased that there are now nappy pants available for this younger age category, they makes this busy mum’s life that little bit easier and they are simple to use for grandparents and babysitters (the print even indicates which side is the front/back, it doesn’t get more straight forward than that!).

Hip Tip: Do you want to put the new BabyLove Wriggler Nappy Pants to the test with your little wriggler? Request your free sample here and see for yourself what all the talk is about.

It is no secret that when it comes to shopping there is nothing I love more than a big saving. As a large family of seven we are always conscious of our budget which is where my bargain hunting skills come in real handy. Regular Hip Little One readers know how much I adore Aussie label b.box, so when I spotted this amazing b.box buy at The Blushing Fox I just had to share:

b.box Diaper Wallet

Whether you’re at home or out and about, b.box has change time covered with the b.box Diaper Wallet. Originally priced at RRP $34.95 you can now pick one up for a tiny $12.95, what a steal!

The compact container fits easily in your baby bag or pram basket and holds all of the necessities for a quick nappy change on the go. Don’t be fooled by its size though, inside this stylish box you can store a large wipe clean change mat (included), wipes with dual access and two disposable nappies, what more do you need? There are currently three different designs to choose from but be quick, a bargain like this won’t last!

Big Baby Shower – Day 5

While there are many things I am planning to do the same with our new baby as with our other children, there are also things I would do differently this time. For quite a few years the logistics of taking multiple young children to the pool for swimming lessons really scared me and I kept putting it off but as of last year all kids have classes on a Sunday afternoon and it is so much fun. I can’t wait to, for the very first time, enjoy swimming with a small baby once he/she is ready.

Konfidence range

At Konfidence they know all about enjoying the water with little people whilst staying safe and warm. Their extensive range of baby swimming, buoyancy and beachwear products will help you feel confident and comfortable splashing around with your new baby.

Konfidence BabywarmaThe cleverly designed Konfidence Babywarma (RRP $29.99, size 0-24 months) is a super-soft neoprene swimsuit that provides welcome warmth and 100% UV protection on covered bodyparts parts. It fully opens up so dressing your baby is a breeze and thanks to adjustable velcro fasteners a perfect snugly fit is ensured at all times. Even nappy changes are a piece of cake, just open the convenient flap at the bottom for speedy access. The Babywarma is currently available in Blue Polka, Strawberry, Clownfish, Nautical Blue and Red and Fuchsia.

Konfidence BabyChangerChanging a wet, slippery baby near the water can be quite the battle, which is why the handy Konfidence Roll & Go BabyChanger (RRP $16.99, birth +) features a non-slip surface. No matter where you are, with the Roll & Go in your baby bag you’ll always a have a clean, safe and hygienic place for unexpected nappy changes. After use simply wipe clean, roll up and fasten ready for the next little clean-up.

Konfidence AquaNappyIf you are swimming regularly and enjoying an heated indoor pool you will love the Konfidence AquaNappy (RRP $15.99, size 3-30 months). Unlike bulky disposable swim nappies they are a compact fit, re-usable and gentle on the environment and your wallet. The new and improved design will grow with your baby from 3 all the way to 30 months, at which stage your child will most likely be toilet trained and able to wear regular bathers. Little accidents are contained thanks to elasticised waist and leg openings without them being too tight and uncomfortable.
