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.

It’s been a rather slow start this year but it looks like warmer weather has finally arrived, yay! I have got my fingers crossed that summer won’t let it us down and we’re in for some beautiful weather. I love the longer days, the blue skies, cold ice blocks and having less washing (that’s why I love dresses!).

The only tricky thing about the Summer season is knowing what to put on little Harriet at night time, making sure she is comfortable, safe and at the perfect temperature. Thankfully ergoPouch takes the guessing out of baby bedtime with these gorgeous new arrivals.

ergopouch-summer-sleep-bagDesigned with Australia’s hot weather in mind the light and airy ergoPouch 0.2 TOG Jersey Sleep Bag (RRP $34.95, size 8-24 months) is the perfect summer pick for your precious bundle. This stylish sleep bag is made with luxurious organic cotton that is super soft, breathable and gentle against baby’s delicate skin, it’s ideal for little ones suffering from eczema or other skin conditions.

After ten months of cocooning baby Harriet to sleep and a tricky transition period she has now well and truly accepted the arms-free lifestyle, so it’s out with the swaddle and in with the sleeping bag. The Jersey Sleep Bag is comfy and cosy yet spacious enough for little hips to move around freely, earning the important tick of approval from the International Hip Dysplasia Foundation.

Committed to ultimate comfort and safety this lovely ergoPouch design has no scratchy, noisy velcro to irritate Harriet’s skin and no small buttons that could come off, it opens and closes in one quick zip with the end of the zip being neatly covered by a small fabric flap so the neckline is soft and smooth. Bonus: The two-way zip allows for easy nappy access without having to take off the whole sleep bag making midnight changes a breeze.

ergopouch-sleep-bag-blush

ergoPouch sleeping bags are available in a range of TOG ratings, design and sizes to suit little nappers from 2 months up to 6 years old. In line with the SIDS guidelines ergoPouch sleep 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 handy ergoPouch Finder to find the best match for your child and his/her sleeping environment, easy as pie.

In less than two weeks our little Hattie will hit the 6 months mark. I can’t believe how fast she grows, we’ve already spotted two teeny tiny white dots on her little gums and the end of swaddling is also in sight. Harriet is so quick at rolling these days that for safety reasons we will have to move to sleeping bags soon, I am guessing we are in for a fair few sleepless nights…

Swaddle Up

At Love To Dream they understand that the transition from swaddle to sleeping bag can be quite a tricky one, not just for your baby but for mum too (back to broken nights and lots of resettling). If you don’t like the sound of going ‘cold turkey’ you will love the gentle approach of the Love To Dream 50/50 Swaddle Up,

The 50/50 Swaddle Up offers all the sleepy goodness of the famous Swaddle Up Original with a fabulous convertible twist. Thanks to two convenient zips the ‘wings’ can be detached individually and help your baby slowly get used to the strange (and a little scary) experience of free arms. Start with a swaddle and end with a sleeping bag, how easy!

Love To Dream 50:50

With the cooler season approaching Love to Dream has just released the special Swaddle Up 50/50 Winter Warm (RRP $59.95, size Medium – Extra Large), a cosy 2.5 TOG convertible swaddle that will keep your precious bundle toasty warm. The super soft bamboo quilting offers both warmth and comfort to allow your baby a restful night sleep even on chilly nights. The gender neutral design is perfect for both boys and girls and the convenient double zip makes midnight nappy changes a breeze.

Big Baby Shower – Day 25

While most babies start off snug as a bug in a gorgeous swaddle they will all eventually move on, some a little sooner and some a little later. The logical next step is a sleeping bag that will still provide that cosy hug experience whilst leaving baby’s arms and legs free to move around. If your bub is ready to make the move during this chilly season you can keep him/her comfy and warm with this genius design from Love To Dream:

The innovative Love To Dream Inventa Sleep Bag (RRP $79.95) has a generous 2.5 TOG rating so little ones stay toasty on cold nights, yet thanks to the clever zipped design with mesh vents it is safe and suitable for warmer months too.

The Inventa Sleep Bag is so much more than just a plain, old sleeping bag, it’s fitted with handy features all around: Adjustable length to grow with your baby, easy press-studs on the shoulder, a seatbelt slit for travelling, protective zip covers, bottom opening for midnight nappy changes without waking baby and of course the mesh vents for a breeze of cool air… what more could you wish for?

Inventa

Made from soft brushed cotton (lining) with a natural, breathable bamboo fill this luxurious sleeping bag is gentle on your baby’s skin and airways, promoting a good, restful night sleep. The 2.5 Tog Inventa Sleep Bag is currently available in two sizes (4-12 months and 12-36 months) and 6 different colours/prints to suit both boys and girls.

Big Baby Shower – Day 5

While there are many things I am planning to do the same with our new baby as with our other children, there are also things I would do differently this time. For quite a few years the logistics of taking multiple young children to the pool for swimming lessons really scared me and I kept putting it off but as of last year all kids have classes on a Sunday afternoon and it is so much fun. I can’t wait to, for the very first time, enjoy swimming with a small baby once he/she is ready.

Konfidence range

At Konfidence they know all about enjoying the water with little people whilst staying safe and warm. Their extensive range of baby swimming, buoyancy and beachwear products will help you feel confident and comfortable splashing around with your new baby.

Konfidence BabywarmaThe cleverly designed Konfidence Babywarma (RRP $29.99, size 0-24 months) is a super-soft neoprene swimsuit that provides welcome warmth and 100% UV protection on covered bodyparts parts. It fully opens up so dressing your baby is a breeze and thanks to adjustable velcro fasteners a perfect snugly fit is ensured at all times. Even nappy changes are a piece of cake, just open the convenient flap at the bottom for speedy access. The Babywarma is currently available in Blue Polka, Strawberry, Clownfish, Nautical Blue and Red and Fuchsia.

Konfidence BabyChangerChanging a wet, slippery baby near the water can be quite the battle, which is why the handy Konfidence Roll & Go BabyChanger (RRP $16.99, birth +) features a non-slip surface. No matter where you are, with the Roll & Go in your baby bag you’ll always a have a clean, safe and hygienic place for unexpected nappy changes. After use simply wipe clean, roll up and fasten ready for the next little clean-up.

Konfidence AquaNappyIf you are swimming regularly and enjoying an heated indoor pool you will love the Konfidence AquaNappy (RRP $15.99, size 3-30 months). Unlike bulky disposable swim nappies they are a compact fit, re-usable and gentle on the environment and your wallet. The new and improved design will grow with your baby from 3 all the way to 30 months, at which stage your child will most likely be toilet trained and able to wear regular bathers. Little accidents are contained thanks to elasticised waist and leg openings without them being too tight and uncomfortable.
