The uggs are back in use, the woodfire is on and the beds are made with flannelette sheets… the cold season has well and truly arrived! She may be old enough for a proper girl bed, but Hattie is definitely not big enough to manage the sheets and keep her quilt on throughout the night. Of course I hate to think that she’s laying there in the cold, so I trust ergoPouch to keep her warm all night long:

Super soft, padded and snuggly warm, stepping into a ergoPouch 2.5 TOG Winter Sleep Suit (RRP $64.95) is pretty much like being wrapped up in a cosy quilt that fits your body like a glove. I secretly wish they made these awesome sleep suits in my size too!

Over the years ergoPouch has become known around the globe for its dedication to natural fibres, offering parents a safe choice for their baby and the environment. By avoiding nasty chemicals and itchy synthetic fabrics ergoPouch has also earnt the tick of approval from the Eczema Association, great peace of mind for those with sensitive skin! The Winter Sleep Suit outer is made with 95% organic cotton with a touch of elastane to allow active kids to move around freely, while the thick 100% organic cotton filling keeps cold chills at bay with a 2.5 TOG rating.

As Hattie is past the sleeping bag stage the Winter Sleep Suit is the perfect next step, it’s just as comfortable and warm and at the same time it allows her to hop in and out of bed by herself and walk around too. Dressing your little sleepy head and midnight nappy checks/changes are a breeze thanks to the special three-way zip, opening up both the front and back. It also has super handy fold-over cuffs at the wrists (up to size 2) and ankles, allowing you to cover tiny toes and little hands in just a flash.

The 2.5 TOG Winter Sleep Suit is currently available in sizes 1 to 5 years and comes in three gorgeous prints to suit boys and girls: Midnight Arrows, Petals and Triangle Pops.

Hatley

Packing suitcases for seven people is definitely not something to leave until the last minute, so even though we are not leaving for another five weeks I have already made a start with some of the luggage. I always pack two sets of nice new PJs for each child and Canadian label Hatley is by far one of our sleepwear favourites:

Hatley sleepwear

Made from 100% breathable cotton Hatley sleepwear (sizes 0-12) is super soft, stretchy and gentle on the skin. Whether it’s the baby’s zip up romper, some snuggly winter long johns or light summer PJs for the older ones, I know the kids can move around freely and will be comfortable all night long. Take it from this mum-of-five and hand-me-down expert: Hatley gear washes and wears extremely well.

Hatley romperNormally Hatley pyjamas will put you back around $44.95 a pair, which I feel is a fair price based on the high quality and durability. Of course when you do manage to find them on sale it’s even better, so I did big stocking up at Fashion Deli earlier this week. Not only do they have some gorgeous Hatley styles on sale at the moment, they are running an extra special deal on top of that! Don’t miss this one:

Right now you can save an additional 30% on all ‘Clearance Sale’ items at Fashion Deli, simply enter the code ‘EXTRA30’ at checkout. Offer ends Sunday July 24, 2016.

Moodie

Each year in the lead up to Christmas people ask me about my favourite Christmas gifts. With five children of different ages and with different interests these ‘top picks’ change all the time, but the one thing that has to be under the Christmas tree every year is a brand new pair of PJs. Before you dismiss PJs as boring, check out this awesome new fashion label that is making sleep cool again:

Moodie

Meet Moodie, a super trendy collection of lounge/sleepwear for little trendsetters (ages 0-7) designed by talented duo Jody and Phebe. With such awesome threads the kids will be jumping for bedtime!

Moodie Boys

Tanks and shorts, long Johns, onesies, nighties, PJ sets… Moodie sleepwear (RRP $39.95-$49.95) is available in a wide range of styles and prints to suit sleepyheads of all ages and stages, there are even accessories to match. Made from super soft, high quality 100% prewashed jersey cotton Moodie clothing ticks all the important boxes: it is gentle on the skin, comfortable to wear and durable to care for.

Moodie sisters

I am really pleased with the fit and feel of the kids’ new Moodie pyjamas and there are no complaints of itchy tags, sharp zips or tight cuffs from my usually fussy sleepers who use every excuse to come out of bed. The graphic prints and bright colours are totally cool and I love that I can dress my girls in outfits that similar in colour yet not exactly the same, perfect for the annual Christmas photo!

Moodie Girls

Nice bonus: All Moodie gear comes with a cute gift tag attached, handy for the upcoming gift giving season! Just fill out the name of the lucky recipient and you’re good to go.

One upside of these cooler nights is that you can rug up in toasty warm pyjamas, preferably straight after coming home from school. We just love snuggling up on the couch with the whole family to read a book or watch a movie. This Easter relax in style with these gorgeous bunny pyjamas from Eeni Meeni Miini Moh:

Eeni Meeni Easter

Made from high quality 100% rib cotton this Eeni Meeni Miini Moh sleepwear range is super soft, comfortable and breathable, perfect for a restful night’s sleep. Can you believe our third girl is still wearing some Eeni pyjamas from our first daughter, that’s how well these jammies wash and wear!

Eeni Meeni Le Lapin PJ SetThe bunny (or in chic French: Le Lapin) pyjamas are available in size 6 months up to 12 years, I could just picture my three girl lined up wearing these! The smaller sizes consist of a bodysuit with pants, while the bigger size contain a top and pants. I absolutely love the wide cuffs on the ankles and wrists, just what you need to keep night time chills at bay. Buy one pair for $49.95 or stock up and purchase two or more pairs for $39.95 each.

For a while it felt like winter would never end but this week I am finally taking off the ‘fluffy’ sheets and folding away the flannelette pyjamas, summer is on its way!

Ticking off the packing list

Counting down

The countdown is on!

Every morning the kids cross out another square on our holiday countdown calendar and with only 54 squares to go I am getting a little nervous. As you know I have been preparing the kids’ backpacks with lots of fun stuff to keep them busy on the plane and I have also slowly started packing the suitcases with a big stash of beautifully wrapped gifts for our family, plenty of summer clothes and of course swimmers because we are really hoping for a decent European summer.

Just 5 more suitcases to pack

Just 5 more suitcases to pack

Some people would say I’m crazy packing this early but I like being organised and it gives me a feeling of being in control, knowing that there is still plenty of time to go over the contents, pack any missing items and buy new bits and bobs if needed. I am glad I made a start already as I quickly realised that all the kids (and dad too) could do with some new undies, socks and pyjamas for the holiday.

Bonds 4-pack SocksIt turns out the timing was perfect as Bonds is currently running a Mid Season Sale with great discounts on babies and kids items, now that’s a nice saving when you’re buying for a big family like ours! I think $5.98 for 4 pairs of children’s socks (RRP $12.98, now 50% off) is a pretty awesome price, at the moment most sizes are still available and you can choose from a boys (blue, green, grey) or girls set (pink, purple, grey).

Bonds trackieI also picked up a pair of these sweet $10 trackies (RRP $19.95) for my little ladies, I even scooped up some similar ones in my size! Because we are flying overnight (and I keep my fingers crossed the kids will sleep at least a few hours!) I want to make sure they are comfortable and warm. Planes can get quite chilly and these track pants look really cosy and cute at the same time, plus they’re great for quick toilet breaks.

Bonds DressNow I know I wasn’t really supposed to buy any more summer clothes but how could I walk away from this gorgeous chevron dress? At a tiny $10 (RRP $19.95) it was a bargain I couldn’t resist and the girls will love wearing it to the beach, out shopping or during our trip to Disneyland Paris. If you’re like me and you hate paying full price you can always find fabulous deals and discounts on kids products at Cuponation.

I better keep ticking off that packing list, not long to go, not long at all!
