Eco Peko

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 18

I know I am always going on about the amazing properties of bamboo fabrics for precious little people, but of course hip mamas can share these benefits too. Australian fashion label Eco Peko has got bamboo lovers of all ages covered with a trendy collection of bamboo clothing for babies, kids and women:

Eco Peko Baby

Made from the softest bamboo fabric Eco Peko gear is hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial and gentle on sensitive skin, so if you (or the kids) are suffering from irritable skin you will love the Eco Peko difference. It is also lightweight and breathable which is particularly pleasant in the hot summer months ahead or for layering during the cooler season.

Eco Peko Kids

The Eco Peko clothing range ticks all the important boxes: it’s stylish, super comfortable, easy to mix and match and a breeze to care for. As a budget-wise parent I particularly love the clever fit, generously sized at first the garments grow with your child and can be worn at different lengths so you get plenty of wear for your money.

Eco Peko Mum

When it comes to being a busy mum it can be hard to find clothes that are soft and comfortable without being too daggy or exercise gear. Eco Peko has managed to combine a stylish look with luxurious comfort so you can look awesome and feel it too no matter what your day looks like.

Baby Gift Works

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 16

For me with the joy of a new arrival always comes the sadness of missing my family who, due to living in The Netherlands, unfortunately are unable to share in our happiness. How wonderful would it be if they could just pop in to meet the new addition! Of course living far away doesn’t stop my family from showering baby with sweet gifts and (while a real visit obviously would have been nicer) those little surprise parcels are always well received.

Baby Gift Works

Whether you live just around the corner or on the other side of the country, if you want to spoil a special little person with a handpicked gift look no further than Baby Gift Works.

Gumigem JewelleryAustralian boutique Baby Gift Works is the ultimate online gift shopping destination for little people aged 0 up to 3 years old (and their mamas!), the virtual doors are open 24/7 and if you order by midday your gift will be dispatched that same day. From clothing to accessories, from playtime to bath time, from feeding time to bed time and much more, you’re sure to find something lovely in store that fits the occasion perfectly.

Maud'n'Lil Bouncy BirdMum and owner Kyla has carefully selected a wonderful range of much loved Australian and international brands like Little Green Rascals, Gaia Organic Cotton, Little Bairn, Sapling and Plan Toys. Modern green families will be pleased to hear that most of the labels in store are eco friendly too, so they are kind on the environment and your baby (no need to worry about nasty chemicals near your precious bundle).

My personal hot tip would have to be the award-winning Frugi clothing range. I can not speak highly enough of the quality and fit of their beautiful garments and the organic cotton is really soft and luxurious. I love Frugi on my kids (particularly on my little eczema sufferer) and I may even try one of their breastfeeding dresses myself soon too!

BBox Colour Pallet Concepts 8-14 (RGB)

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 15

There used to be a time when practical automatically meant boring and plain. Australian designer brand b.box is putting an end to that myth with a super stylish range of baby and kids essentials that is clever, cool and convenient all at the same time:

b.box range

The lucky winner of today’s Welcome Baby Giveaway will take home the following three best-selling b.box products, make sure you get those entries in and it could be you!

b.box Travel Drying RackWhen it comes to kitchen bench space there always seems to be a shortage and all those baby bottles will take up even more room. The handy b.box Travel Drying Rack (RRP $17.95) offers drying space for up to six bottles or cups as well some little bits and pieces, once dry you can simply fold the rack away into a compact little package. It’s so small it even slots into your nappy bag for cleaning on the go, so easy!

b.box Sippy CupWith several big awards to its name the b.box Sippy Cup (RRP $14.95) is a huge favourite with mums across the globe and this year its back with a fresh new range of neon colours. Thanks to the innovative weighted straw children are able to drink at any angle, giving them more flexibility than other cups. The easy-grip handles are ideal for little hands and the flip-top lid keeps the straw clean and out of the way when not in use.

b.box Travel BibWhether it’s dinner at home, grandma or a restaurant, mealtimes are bound to get a little messy.

Welcome Baby Giveaway – Day 13

Two months ago I introduced you to the fabulous Thule Urban Glide and told you all about our family’s outdoor adventures with this sporty ride, if you missed my original post you can read up here. With an impressive 34kg weight limit the pram is an excellent pick for children for all ages and after testing it with our two middle girls I couldn’t wait to try it out with our smallest addition too:


With the help of the Thule Infant Car Seat Adapter (RRP $99) you can turn your Thule Urban Glide into a complete travel system. From home to car, from car to pram and vice versa, transporting your sleeping baby is an absolute breeze.


The Thule Infant Car Seat Adapter clips snugly onto the frame of the Urban Glide, providing a safe and sturdy location for your capsule. The capsule can then be secured by fastening the adjustable strap for a nice snug fit. Unlike most other capsule adapters the Thule adapter doesn’t just hold your capsule on the sides, it offers a secure position all around and therefore reduces movement when pushing the pram.

Thule Car Seat AdapterWith your most precious cargo on board safety is very important so make sure your capsule is compatible with the Thule Infant Car Seat Adapter. There are currently an impressive 29 different capsules from a range of popular brands listed on the handy Compatibility Chart, downloadable from the Thule website. Luckily for us the capsule of our choice, the Nuna Pipa, was a perfect match so I can confidently click our baby in for the ride.

The Thule Urban Glide (RRP $749) and a range of Thule accessories are available at Baby Bunting, Babies’R’Us and leading independents retailers across Australia.

To find out more about Thule, to take a closer look at the Urban Glide and to locate a stockist near you visit www.thule.com.
