During these chilly winter nights there is nothing I enjoy more than snuggling up in a nice warm bed with a good book. All evening I look forward to that wonderful moment of finishing my final chore of the day and sliding into bed. Although relaxing in bed sounds fabulous, when you know what’s hiding in your bedlinen it may not be such a good idea at all!

Linenly has made it their mission to provide Australian families with beautiful 100% organic bamboo bedlinen that is both luxurious and loving for your health and the environment, ensuring you the sweetest of dreams night after night.

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.

Australian designer label ergoPouch takes the guessing out of bedtime dressing with an award-winning range of ergonomically designed swaddles, sleeping bags and sleep suit bags, all made from breathable, skin-friendly natural fibres. The set is completed with the clever ergoLayers collection, ensuring little ones can sleep safely and comfortably anytime and anywhere.

The cool and breezy 0.2 TOG short sleeve ergoLayers (RRP $24.95, size 0-3 months up to 3 years) are the perfect layering solution to be used with the rest of the ergoPouch range. No more wondering what to put on your baby under his/her sleeping bag or sleep suit, now that’s easy! Lovingly created with soft organic cotton (and a touch of elastane so your baby can move freely) these gorgeous suits are super gentle on sensitive skin making them ideal for all, even tiny newborns.

Being quite the chubba bubba our little Ted gets hot and sweaty easily, so I love that ergoLayers are thin and breathable. ergoLayers are nice and snug as well as stretchy and thin, I like to think of them as a reassuring, cosy hug! Instead of fiddly press studs a quick zip makes dressing and undressing simple and speedy while the top of the zip is covered with fabric, so it will not irritate or hurt your baby.

Simply work out the temperature in your baby’s nursery (a complimentary room thermometer is included) and refer to the easy-to-understand ergoPouch What to Wear guide to select the right ergoLayers and TOG-rating combination for your child’s sleeping environment, the ergoEcosystem is all about helping babies and their parents get the sleep they need whilst being SIDS-safe and stylish at the same time.

With a baby brother who is rapidly growing out of his bassinet we were getting quite desperate for miss Hattie to complete her cot-to-bed transition. I admit it has been a slow process with quite a few hiccups along the way but eventually we got there! She has now totally settled into the new sleeping quarters and is enjoying the freedom it comes with, hopping in and out of bed multiple times a night. Of course this means sleeping bags are no longer an option, but thankfully ergoPouch has come up with a solution:

Is it a sleeping bag? Is it a sleep suit? Well, it’s both! The convertible ergoPouch Sleep Suit Bag (RRP $74.95, 2 months – 6 years) combines everything you love about a cosy sleeping bag with the benefits of a more grown-up suit with legs. All it takes is two zips and you can change between suit or bag as often you please and as your child’s needs or sleeping arrangements change, now that’s great value for money.

Perfect for that tricky in between weather the short-sleeve ergoPouch Spring/Autumn Sleep Suit Bag (1.0 TOG) will keep baby comfortable and at the right temperature without being bulky and restrictive. Made with the sensitive skin of little ones in mind the soft organic cotton and bamboo blend is gentle and allergy friendly, reducing the risk of skin irritation, eczema flare-ups and long nights of itching and scratching.

The award-winning Sleep Suit Bag offers plenty of wiggle room and a teeny touch of stretchy elastane allows your child to move hips and legs around freely. Whether your child sleeps in cot, car or carrier, rides in a stroller or even likes to stroll on his/her own wobbly little legs, the innovative 2-in-1 design can be used anywhere without compromising on safety (the suit mode allows for seatbelt and harnesses). Fitted with special no-slip grip pads the suit will help new walkers stay on their feet.

I really love the handy room thermometer that comes with the Sleep Suit Bag, completely free. Not only does it show you the temperature in your baby’s room, the dressing guide also tells you which TOG rating to wear at different room temperatures and what type of clothing to put underneath your sleeping bag or suit. It’s just the helpful guide a caring parent needs to reassure them they are doing the right thing for their precious little one.

In line with the SIDS guidelines ergoPouch Sleep Suit 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 quick ergoPouch Finder to find the best match for your child and his/her sleeping environment, easy as pie.

When I walked (or should I say waddled?) into the delivery room at almost 41 weeks pregnant I loudly informed Hip Daddy that, compared to my five previous pre-term babies, this one was surely going to kill me. At the time the midwives reassured me that the baby would be average in size, but when our boy weighed in at a whopping 4.6kg (10lbs 3oz) I couldn’t help but think ‘I told you so!’. Now that Ted is 2 weeks old I am feeling a bit more like my old self and our big chubby bundle of joy is an absolute delight who feeds and sleeps like a champ, most of the time…

All six of our babies have been swaddled from birth (some even up to 10 months+) and I found it extremely helpful in establishing a good bedtime routine. As soon as those wriggly little arms and kicking legs are snuggly wrapped our little boy calms down and drifts off to sleep, here he is on cloud 9 with ergoPouch.

With its super clever 2-in-1 design the ergoPouch Cocoon Swaddle + Sleep Bag (RRP $34.95- $44.95, ages 0-12 months) is the ultimate womb-to-world sleep solution for young families. You can start using the Cocoon immediately from birth (Minimum baby weight 3kg) as a swaddle, keeping arms safely tucked inside whilst the bell-shaped bottom leaves plenty of room for hips and legs to move freely.

If you’re put off by all the folds, twists and tucks of traditional swaddling with a large piece of fabric you will absolutely love the ease of the Cocoon, just zip up and you’re done. Strong little Houdinis won’t be able to escape from their Cocoons, allowing both baby and parents to get a proper sleep without endless re-wrapping. Midnight nappy checks are a breeze too, as you can use the two-way zip to quickly check the bottom half without having to take off the whole Cocoon.

As your baby gets bigger and moves on from being swaddled you can use the same Cocoon as a sleep bag by opening up the arms with the handy armhole poppers. You can even choose for a slow transition and free up one arm at a time, how easy is that? There is no need to buy different products and you can change back and forth as needed, making the Cocoon a budget-friendly investment for new parents.

To ensure a comfortable temperature at any climate you can choose from a 0.2 TOG or 1.0 TOG rating. Made from breathable organic cotton (0.2 TOG) or a soft organic cotton/bamboo blend (1.0 TOG), with a touch of elastane for extra stretch, the Cocoon Swaddle + Sleep Bag is ideal for sensitive newborn skin. The ergoPouch Cocoon is currently available in six stylish prints to suit boys and girls.

It may have been a race against the clock but after many long, late nights Hip Daddy has finally completed the baby’s nursery, just in time! I have to admit I was starting to feel a little stressed, there’s nothing more pleasing to an expecting mama’s eye than a beautifully made cot or bassinet waiting for its new owner…

Time will tell whether our new bundle will be a good sleeper but VTech is ready to help him/her drift off peacefully with this cuddly bedtime buddy:

The Starlight Sounds Hippo (RRP $49.95, ages 0 months+) combines the soft hug of a plush toy with the reassuring comforts of sound and light, it’s a winner all around.

Starlight Sounds HippoIt is no secret that babies are intrigued by movement and a simple light can keep babies entertained for ages. With four different coloured lights and six different light displays the Starlight Sounds Hippo definitely has plenty in store to keep little minds busy as they nod off for a nap. Imagine your baby’s delight while watching a wonderful light show being projected on the nursery ceiling!

Does your little one need some more gentle encouragement to fall asleep? This happy hippo is up to the task with an extensive 100+ range of soothing lullabies, calming nature sounds and well-known nursery rhymes that can be played on a 10, 20 or 30 minute timer. The volume is adjustable so you don’t have to worry about the sound being too loud or invasive to sleep with.

The absolute best part of the Starlight Sounds Hippo is that he is voice activated, he jumps into action when your baby cries which could help settle your baby back into sleep before he/he is fully awake. I will have to get back to you in a few months time to report on our sleeping success, keep an eye out!

Christmas Countdown – Day 12

As a mum of five little ones I know very well that a proper, good quality, durable mattress takes a big chunk out of your family budget, so it is not something you want to have to replace often. Adults are (usually) quite good at keeping their mattresses clean but for children that is a big ask, we all know accidents happen and there is nothing you can do to prevent them. If you have ever tried to clean, scrub and deodorize a mattress you know it ruins your mood, takes ages and after all that it never becomes 100% clean again. Here’s the good news, there is hope!

Australian mattress specialist BedGuard takes the hassle out of a wet bed with an innovative waterproof mattress range that keeps little (and big) sleepyheads comfortable, clean and dry all night long.

Designed to stop liquids, stains and odours from ruining your mattress the unique BedGuard protection layer is guaranteed to keep nasties at bay, in case of accidents just use some paper towel to remove the spill and your mattress is fresh, clean and dry again. No more sleeping on crunchy, sticky, plastic mattress protectors, no more scrubbing, no soda-treatment, no yucky yellow stains and no sneaky odours hanging around, what a fantastic time (and irritation) saver for busy parents!

Aside from repelling liquid, odours and stains BedGuard mattresses have many other great features that make them a family favourite. The anti-dust mite, anti-bacterial, bed bug resistant and flame retardant properties give parents peace of mind, they can sleep well knowing their child is safe and comfortable at all times.
