Christmas Countdown – Day 15

If you are a modern, eco-conscious parent you have most likely heard of Sustainababy, a beautiful Australian online store filled with fabulous green finds for Aussie families. Aside from being the go-to lady for awesome eco-gear owner Meg also does an amazing job educating people about sustainability, responsibility and how your shopping choices affect both your health and the environment.

Sustainababy proudly stocks products and brands that put your family’s health and the environment first, like the wonderful Little Innoscents skincare range. Especially for our lucky Christmas Countdown giveaway Meg has handpicked her six favourite Little Innoscents products:

From the top of their heads to the tip of their tiny toes, the Little Innoscents Hair & Body Wash (RRP $12.99, 250ml) is bound to leave your little ones squeaky clean. The delicious Heavenly Spearmint & Sweet Orange scent will hang around long after the fun bubbles have disappeared, leaving you feeling fresh and fruity for longer. Perfect for everyday use and safe for all ages this lovely wash will soon be a family-favourite.

We all know the importance of ‘Slip, Slop, Slap’ but do you know what’s really hiding inside your sunscreen and creeping into your skin? Completely free from nano-particles, chemical absorbers and preservatives and filled with natural goodness like Vitamin E, Organic Green Tea, Cucumber and Rosehip extract Little Innoscents SPF30 Sun Lotion (RRP $19.95, 100ml) is a gentle, natural and safe way to protect your family’s skin this Summer.

Like most children our five kids are experts at making mess so there is always lots of hand washing going on in our house. Instead of using liquid soap that would leave their hands (already painful and sensitive due to certain skin conditions) red and irritated we have been using the wonderful Little Innoscents Goat’s Milk Bar (RRP $3.99, 100g). Not only does it clean and nourish in a gentle way, it also lasts a lot longer than liquid soap (and fewer spills so less cleaning).

With its pleasant Mint & Strawberry Swirls flavour this Little Innoscents Milky Whites Toothpaste (RRP $4.99, 50ml) is sure to win over even the fussiest child at toothbrushing time. Being rich in calcium and free from questionable ingredients like fluoride, surfactants, artificial sweeteners and mineral oil this organic tooth paste provides parents with much needed peace of mind, knowing their children’s precious pearly whites will stay healthy and clean naturally.

Don’t let the name fool you, Little Innoscents Winter Blue Balm (RRP $10.99, 75ml) can be used all year around to help fight little sniffles, snotty noses and annoying coughs by making breathing easier. This 100% natural and baby-safe balm is made with medicinal essential oils of Wintergreen and Eucalyptus, bringing warmth to the body and alleviating nasal congestion. What a great alternative to greasy petrolatum based products!

Last but not least, the one product pretty much every mum uses multiple times a day: baby wipes. Unlike most other baby wipes on the market Little Innoscents Baby Wipes (RRP $6.50, 80pk) are free of alcohol, artificial fragrance, colours, parabens, phthalates and other nasty chemicals, so they can be safely used on little bottoms, sticky fingers, grubby faces and toys. Infused with soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E they will leave your baby’s sensitive skin nourished and soft, wipe after wipe.

As the birth of our new son or daughter is coming closer I have slowly started to go through my ‘baby checklist’. Of course I have held on to quite a few pieces (most of it to be honest!), but after multiple owners some items are looking a little worse for wear or are just not the right season. I recently ordered a beautiful stack of organic cotton baby clothes from Sustainababy and am so pleased with them!

Purebaby Grow SuitI first discovered Australian fashion label Purebaby when I was pregnant with baby no.3 and have been a big fan every since. My two youngest girls have both worn the Purebaby newborn range and I can’t wait to see our new addition in these lovely soft Purebaby Grow Suits (RRP $29.95, now $20.97) too. Made from 100% certified organic cotton the range is free from nasty chemicals and gentle against sensitive baby skin. I love how the smallest sizes of these sweet suits have fold-over mittens, another great ‘safety’ feature for itchy bubbas!

YumboxWith school going back next week don’t forget to give your child’s lunchbox and drink bottle a little check-over and replace if necessary. Like many families worldwide our kids use Yumbox bento-style lunch boxes (RRP $39.95, now $27.97) which are absolutely fantastic and very practical, while available in quite a few stores these days I have NEVER seen them on sale at such a great price. Sustainababy currently has the awesome Yumbox Panino in stock in three different colours.

Plan Toys XylophonePersonally I love getting organised nice and early for birthdays and Christmas, it saves me running around in rush and if you shop the sales you can save yourself some big bucks too.

Jack 'n Jill ToothpasteWhether you like it or not, at some point in time your baby’s first tooth will make an appearance and generally this involves quite a lot of tears and broken nights. Keeping that shiny white bud clean and healthy is easy with fruity fresh Jack ‘n Jill Natural Toothpaste (RRP $5.95), made right here in Australia. With yummy flavours like blackcurrant, banana and blueberry, xylitol to fight tooth decay and no sugar, colours, SLS and preservatives you can brush those little toothy pegs without worries.

VulliYou can also offer your teething baby some much needed distraction and relief for sore gums with these funky Vulli teething toys (from the makers of the famous Sophie the Giraffe toy).

They’re the perfect size for little hands and suitable from birth onwards.

Christmas Countdown – Day 3

While the wonderful message behind Christmas is eternal (and free!) unfortunately over the years the season’s celebrations have became a lot less durable and very expensive. Families spend big bucks on food, decorations and gifts and bin after bin are filled with wasted produce and packaging in the days after. This year why not make Christmas more sustainable by shopping Australia’s favourite eco store Sustainababy:


In store you will find a wonderful selection of toys, baby products, clothing, home cleaning goods, gifts, linen and much more, all carefully chosen for their eco friendly properties. Whether you are shopping for a special little person, mum, dad, grandma, neighbour or teacher, Sustainababy has got something for everyone.

So Young Lunch BoxThis new So Young Insulated Lunch Box ($34.95) is perfect for a summer picnic, car trip snacks, on the go morning tea and of course school lunch when the holidays have finished. All So Young lunch boxes are made with convenient wipe clean coated linen and are free from PVC, phthalates and BPA so you can pack your child a tasty meal safe from nasties. Wear it by the handy carry handle or go hands free with the included (detachable) strap.

Dandelion Wand RattleThis adorable Dandelion Star Wand Rattle ($15.95, ages birth+) would have to be one of the cutest baby gifts I have ever seen and it’s very budget friendly. Each star wand is lovingly handmade with brightly coloured pesticide‐free bamboo rayon thread and filled with natural corn fibre filling so it’s completely safe for your precious bundle to play with and put in her mouth. Don’t worry, you can even wash it in the washing machine to keep it clean and full of magic for your little fairy.

Earth Tribe Wood Block Printing KitSustainababy does not only have the green gifts covered, they’ve got the Christmas wrapping sorted too with a range of eco friendly wrapping paper, gift tags, a reusable Santa Sack and this unique Earth Tribe Wood Block Printing Kit ($44). What a great way to create your own personal Christmas cards or gift tags, you can even use the hand carved blocks to turn plain paper into custom made wrapping paper! Three jars of fabric acrylic paint, a hand kerchief and printing pad are included.

Jun 242014

As Hip Little One’s 5th birthday is coming closer I am really starting to feel the birthday spirit. When you are a work-at-home-mum every year you succeed is a victory in itself and it gives you such a sense of pride. But I’m not the only one celebrating a milestone, over the past few years Sustainababy owner Laura Trotta has built a fantastic eco-store and extremely valuable eco-parenting blog that help many modern parents live a little (or a lot) greener. This month Sustainababy is turning 4 and you get to join the birthday celebrations:

Save 20% storewide at Sustainababy, simply enter the code ‘4thBIRTHDAY’ at checkout. Offer ends June 27, 2014, and excludes bulk value packs and furniture.

From eco friendly baby gear to organic clothing, from wooden toys to cloth nappies, from reusable feeding products to organic skincare and much more, Sustainababy offers green alternatives to many of your everyday family needs. In store you will find a range of excellent Australian and international brands that are great quality, durable and practical as well as (not unimportant) stylish.

Sustainababy Lunch

With the school holidays around the corner you are about to get a break from packing lunches every day so now is the perfect time to take a closer look at your child’s drink bottle and lunch box. Upon closer inspection you may discover that there are many hard (if not impossible) to clean corners, grooves and ridges perfect for germs to hide in. The plastic lunch box and drink bottle that your child uses daily could also be leaking BPA into food and drinks, not a very pleasant thought. Ditch the ‘not sure’ and go for pure with these hip and healthy mealtime products, use the birthday discount code and save yourself a welcome 20%.
