Christmas Countdown – Day 20

From shopping trips to beach walks, from family visits to friend talks and everything in between, it’s the season for going out and catching up. If you’ve got a precious little one to accompany you this wonderful Christmas Countdown prize from BabyBjörn will be your perfect companion:

The lucky winner of today’s giveaway will take home the award-winning BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One (RRP $229.95, Black Cotton), a stylish baby carrier that is ideal for modern parents with an on-the-go lifestyle.

The BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is a stylish baby carrier suitable for babies weighing 3.5 to 15kg, that means that (on average) you can use it from birth all the way up to three years old! The fantastic 4-in-1 design offers parents the freedom to carry their child as they wish: higher for newborns, lower for older babies, inward-facing, outward-facing, front or back carrying position. The Baby Carrier One is all about versatility and it adjusts to your, and your child’s, needs and preferences in just a flash.

At BabyBjörn they understand that we all want the best for our children which is why this carrier is developed in close collaboration with leading paediatricians. With precious newborns in mind the Baby Carrier One has an inbuilt infant insert and offers important head and neck support. The International Hip Dysplasia Institute recognises the Baby Carrier One Air as a ‘hip-healthy’ carrier with an ergonomic wide-leg carrying position and a generous 32 cm seat area.

One of the (many) fantastic features of the BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is that it is suitable directly from birth (min. weight 3.5kg), there is no need to purchase a separate infant insert. This not only saves you money but hassle too and you can easily change between passengers of different ages/weights. The clever ‘zipped’ seat can be adjusted to suit newborns up to 62cm (higher newborn position) or older babies (lower baby position). Just do up the correct zip and you’ll always have the perfect seat for your little traveller, easy as pie.

Aside from being safe for your child’s hips and development the Baby Carrier One is also safe to chew or suck on, something babies often do when they’re relaxed and snuggled up against mum or dad. All fabrics used in this carrier are gentle against your child’s skin and completely free from health-hazardous substances and allergens, that’s one less worry on your mind. When not in use the carrier folds up to a compact, light-weight package for easy transport or storage.

There are lots of different baby carriers around and some are trickier than others but the BabyBjörn Baby Carrier One is definitely easy to use. The main ‘frame’ simply slides on over your head like a sweater, next you do up the waist band behind you and pull it tight. All that is left is to place your baby on the ‘seat’ and fold the front panel towards you which you then secure with 4 strong safety buckles. Click and go!

I am sure many mothers of girls will recognise this, the very cute I-want-to-be-like-mummy stage. I admit it is heartwarming to see how much my three girls look up to me so I am lapping it up while I can, soon enough they will think I am far from fashionable, nice and pretty! Now, it is no secret that I am generally not a big fan of adult fashion on children and prefer to keep my kids sweet and little while I still can but every now and then a lovely kid-friendly alternative pops up that I can’t resist. That’s why it’s a ‘Mama on Monday’ with a twist today…

Charli Bird gift boxYou may remember that I shared a snap of myself wearing a beautiful camel Charli Bird Cashmere Poncho back in April. It is super soft, luxurious, timeless and the perfect quick layer of warmth to quickly drop the kids at school or pop into the shops. The girls have been intrigued by this snuggly wrap ever since and love copying my style by creating their own ponchos with a big scarf or even a towel.

Obviously that’s not really a look suitable for heading out in so when I discovered this brand new mini-me edition of the Charli Bird poncho I knew they would absolutely love it:

Charli Bird Little Chicks ponchos (RRP $79.95-$99.95) are made from a quality wool blend that’s soft against the skin, they are warm and cosy to wear and easy for kids to put on and take off. I think the two-tone design is really lovely and it adds a fun, cheerful touch to a classic garment. My favourite part about this design is that it ‘grows with your child’: First you can wear it long like a poncho, then as your child gets taller you can wear it shorter like a scarf making it a great investment.

Little Chicks ponchos are currently available in size S/M (ages 3-5) and M/L (ages 6-10) and come in four stylish colours that little minifashionistas will adore: Lollipop, Bubblegum, Blue Heaven and Liquorice.

Less than two weeks to go, the countdown is on! Mother’s Day has a habit of sneaking up on us and often it means mums are left with a last-minute, practical present that is well intended but not exactly exciting. That’s why I am giving you a little heads up so you can drop a hint for, or treat yourself to, a lovely, luxurious gift from Charli Bird that will be enjoyed for years to come:

Cashmere Ponchos

These beautiful new Charli Bird Cashmere Ponchos are the perfect pick for those days when it’s too chilly to head out in just a top, but at the same time a bit too warm to wear a thick, padded winter coat. Made from silky soft 50% cashmere and 50% wool and lovingly handmade in Nepal these classy ponchos are high quality, comfortable, naturally warm and easy to wear. Simply pop one over your head for an instant extra layer of warmth (just what I needed on yesterday’s walk around our beautiful neighbourhood!).

Version 2

Cashmere Poncho in Camel (RRP $249.95) by Charli Bird
Dallas Skinny Jeans in Dark Denim (RRP €89.99) by Noppies
JAMiE Boots in Camel (RRP $255) by FRANKiE4

Folded the poncho is conveniently small in size (perfect for your handbag or travelling) yet you can create three stylish looks with only single poncho, it is such a great versatile addition to your wardrobe! Wear it with a V-neck and longer on the sides, go for a lovely draped cowl neck and horizontal waist or sport an eye-catching asymmetrical look. Bonus: If you are a breastfeeding mother or expecting mum trying to hide a growing bump, you are sure to appreciate the welcome privacy these ponchos provide.

Charli Bird gift boxThe new Cashmere Ponchos are currently available in two different styles and a range of classic colours: original length (RRP $249.95, 70cm square) in black, camel, ruby, nautical navy and silver grey and extra long (RRP $289.95, 85cm square) in camel and black. Each poncho comes beautifully packaged in a Charli Bird gift box, ready to presented to a well-deserving mama this Mother’s Day.
