Summer at Sustainababy

 Baby, Eco, Style  Comments Off on Summer at Sustainababy
Sep 242011

I am a little disappointed in the weather this week. Last weekend was just perfect, a sunny 28 degrees and everyone seemed happier in an instant. Isn’t it amazing how people straight away put on their shorts and singlets at the first sign of summer? It made me all excited about taking some gorgeous pictures of the kids so hopefully we will get more nice weather very soon. I have got my eyes on some of Sustainababy‘s new arrivals from the beautiful Australian brands Baobab and Purebaby.

If there is any way I can still squeeze the baby in this lovely Baobab bodysuit I will do it, I can just imagine those chubby legs on show and the spotty fabric is very cute. I really like bodysuits on babies because they cover their bellies and backs, plus it keep their nappies well protected from curious fingers. Of course it is also very reassuring to know that Baobab clothing is made of very soft organic cotton and as I already own several Baobab pieces I know they stay beautiful wash after wash. This bodysuit ($37.95) is available in sizes 0-3 months up to 1 year.

Luckily for me Baobab does not only a baby range, most fabrics are available in bigger sizes (size 2-6) too but in a slightly different style to suit the age. So if she is too big for the bodysuit there is always the dress in the same print, although looking at the dresses I really love the vibrant blue colour of the Mimma Dress. It would look beautiful with my youngest daughters blue eyes and her blonde hair (there is not much of it but it is there!). Make sure you check out the other Baobab pieces too as I spotted some amazing winter bargains waiting to be scooped up.

You may have heard of Purebaby before but what you made not know is that the Purebaby range has been extended. The new Purebaby Kids range caters for children up to six years old because no matter how old kids are organic cotton is always best. The Skipper Blue Check Shirt ($49.95, size 3-6) is a perfect choice for the boys, just a bit more classy than most casual clothing yet just as comfortable.

Last but not least there is Cheeky Little Soles, who looks after the feet of tiny babies and early walkers up to approximately 2,5 years old. Some new walker styles are expected to arrive in store anyday, I had a sneak peek and can tell you that they are gorgeous. Have a look at these cool boy sandals called Henry! These walkers are made from premium non-toxic leather with a light-weight flexible rubber sole so they provide busy little feet with comfort, support and excellent grip.
