lollipop baby

Lollipop lollipop oh lolli lolli lolli.....

If you have a new bub this Christmas lollipop baby has just the outfit for those first photos Christmas morning!

With a great range of personalised t-shirts, onesies and artwork you will have a hard time narrowing it down to just one quirky, cute character!

Santa Claus on the left is the most popular of the first christmas prints but I went with the tree, shown below, for Miki's first Christmas. Once December hits she will probably be wearing this nearly every day up until Christmas.

Orders for Christmas close on the 5th of December so get in quickly to avoid disappointment! Prices are $29.95.

Of course you should also head to lollipop baby the rest of the year as well. A great gift for a new baby, I personally love the cowboy for the boys and the Japanese doll for the girls.
Its not all personalised, check out the cute regular designs with my favourite the ducky saying 'waddle I do today', 'my dad is pawfect' doggy and ebaby.
I'm sure the new personalised artwork will also be a big hit!
You can include the new baby's (or older ones) name, birthdate and time, birth location and weight and length. You can put as little or as much information as you like.
This one is even harder to decide a favourite! For the girls once again the Japanese doll (how about matching onesie and art?) or the cupcake looks delicious! Or for the boys the cowboy or giraffe. No need to get 2 if you have twins either as they are also catered for with a twin pair of ducks. All artwork is $24.95.

Check out their facebook page for the chance to win a onesie, closing the 21st November.
Hopefully I will be back next year with another order for another first Christmas baby if I get my way!! And that cupcake is mighty tempting, might just go back for another look......

Belly Bumps to Baby Hugs

Kim, the owner of belly bumps to baby hugs, is a very talented WAHM. She is also very generous with giveaways happening all the time. Currently you can win a dolls pouch like the one pictured on my daughter at the bottom of the page.

The site has many products made by Kim and other WAHMs plus various other useful items like the milkscreen to test for alcohol in your breast milk before feeding, the nursing pillow (which I would've loved with my first born hour long feeder!) and the Bubbalog baby health book to keep your babies records of nappies, feeds, sleeps etc.

These cute little satin shoes were worn by my younger daughter at her recent christening. Her feet are tiny and at 6 months is only just getting into 0-3 month size but luckily with the velcro fastener she couldn't kick them off! They looked so pretty with her white dress and tights. Currently on sale for $13.50!

My big girl got spoilt! Here she is with her doll pouch,
legwarmers and hair clip holder. Upsy Daisy now spends most of her time getting carried around the shops.

The hair clip holder is absolutely gorgeous! You can pick out your ribbon, paint and paper on the site to customise your own one, I just picked the ribbon I liked and left the rest up to them. As you can see it goes well with her room. No more lost clips!!!!

The legwarmers I had trouble choosing my favourite pattern but went with the black with pink hearts as she already has some other ones with girly patterns and colours so these ones are a little more rock chick! Love the spiders and skull and crossbones ones too, have a look through the range.

I also received the anywayupcup bottle tops, these are awesome! I have 2 always in my nappy bag. They fit on the top of all the water bottles at the shops so you can head out and if you stop for a drink, grab a bottle and if the kids want some put the lid on and they can't spill it! Brilliant! My daughter wants mums bottles now not 'baby' ones.

Oh and I nearly forgot about my baby carrier! I got the wrap around baby carrier and though it takes a bit of practice the first few times you soon become a pro at throwing it on. It's so comfortable to wear and bubs nods off in no time. I'm yet to try her in the facing out position but now she's becoming more nosey about whats going on around her I think I might try it soon. Made of 100% cotton it doesn't get to hot....yet! Ask me after I wear her out on a 40 degree day! Great for breastfeeding with too.

And last but not least I got the nappy wallet and wipes case. Simple things but so much prettier than your normal wipes case. Pick the print you want and Kim will make it for you! Groovy patterns and so compact you can go back to your old handbags instead of a nappy bag!

Check out the sales section for some bargains. Support a great WAHM and shop at belly bumps to baby hugs, you won't be disappointed!

Little Bare Bear

I love finding new stores and Little Bare Bear has only been around a few months but has already become one of my favourites.

My first order was quite a big one including 3 pairs of bathers, sunnies, sock-ons and hair clips. Plus I'm waiting for them to get in the matching hat to a pair of bathers and a duck chime ball! Phew my poor credit card... or so you'd think! LBB has 15% off STOREWIDE!! for the month of November with the code KIDS, great reason to grab some christmas presents.

Pictured below is my eldest daughter with her new Frankie Ray sunnies. These are just so cool, designed to last up to 13 years of age, 100% UV protection and made of shatter proof polycarbonate. I love the look and she loves wearing glasses like Mum's and has her own carry case. Sure they will last a while as she is only just over 2.

I couldn't resist the Cupid Girl bathers, my younger daughter is getting the Surf's Up one piece (even cuter in real life!) And my elder water nymph has already headed out in the Ladybird one piece with the Ladybird bikini (out of stock) coming to her for Christmas. I had never seen this brand before and love the bright colours and quality make. Looking forward to receiving the Surf's Up hat when they arrive in store!

Finally found some cute clips that don't slip by the way of the Cupcake bon-bons. And my other great find I hadn't seen before the Sock-ons! These fabulous little pieces of elasticised material should've been around before I lost countless pairs of socks with my first daughter! They slip over bubs socks and they can't kick them off. They also look uber-cute with the pretend laces on the pair I got (fairy white). I hope I never loose one of them!

OK enough about my splurging!

The first thing I wanted on the site was the nappy off mat, with summer nearly upon us nappy free time is loved by my little one. It's a pity she is now on the move and doesn't stay on anything which means nappy free time on the tiles or outside only! The breastfeeding necklace would make life so much easier with my easily distracted, scratching, pinching 6 month old! Funky colours too.

And last but not least the Kemby sidekick nappy bag, how much easier life would've been with my first born and this bag? No dragging the pram or baby carrier out, big enough to fit all my junk in and that blue is calling me!!! Check out the list of features and you are able to pay it off weekly!

In conclusion I think Little Bare Bear will be here for a long time to come! Especially with all the products yet to arrive ;). Great customer service and don't forget the 15% off. Make sure you bookmark this one and keep up to date on the facebook fan page.
