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.

How to beat the heat and keep your cool

When I moved to Australia ten years ago I was rather worried about the Aussie climate and I wondered if I would be able to cope with the warm weather. Fast forward one decade and I am no longer fazed by temperatures in the 30s, although I admit I do get a little nervous once we’re heading into the 40 degrees and higher. Thankfully there are some easy measures you can take to keep your cool, here are my three top tips for beating the heat:

fujitsu-ducted-airAfter living in two houses without an effective cooling system we made sure our current home is well prepared for hot Australian summers by installing ducted air-conditioning. Being able to cool down the majority of the house with just one click of a button is such a great feeling and a luxury I will always be grateful for. If you live on the Gold Coast you can count on Deepchill Gold Coast Air Conditioning to keep your family cool and comfortable during summer.

diane-ceiling-fanFor rooms without outlets for your ducted air-conditioning you will have to find an alternative way to keep cool air circulating and yes, there are more attractive options than the traditional white plastic ceiling fan. The trick is to find a fan design that suits your style and colour scheme perfectly so it becomes part of the decor as opposed to a sore in the eye, like a brightly coloured design for the kids’ bedroom/playroom and this classy wood detail Diane Ceiling Fan for your office.

Dyson CoolIn our household we are big fans of this portable desk fan by Dyson. Not only does the powerful and energy friendly Dyson Cool effectively cool down your room, it is also super stylish to blend in with your decor. We love the fact that the Dyson Cool is 100% safe for children to touch without rotating parts that could injure little fingers and it is super easy to clean so a perfect pick for allergy suffers. Being up to 75% quieter than traditional fans you can keep the fan on at night too, even I can sleep with it on and that says something!

With all the cooling preparations done and dusted I think we’re ready for warm weather to arrive, bring on summer!
