I recently had the opportunity to pick a few of my favourite items in store and test drive them for a couple of weeks and I am so excited to share with you a few of what Maddie Loves…
My First Christmas milestone cards
I clearly remember in the first few weeks of my pregnancy when I found out my due date – one of the first things I did was work out how old Maddie would be at Christmas time. I have always thought about the idea of my husband and I having children around at Christmas time because it is so true what they say – Christmas is for the kids. This is one milestone out of the many out of Kids Emporium’s Milestone Cards that I cannot wait to pull out for Maddison this year. This cardboard card is the perfect size to capture on camera and has a little space to fill in the date and year etc to capture these special memories. I love the idea of using milestone cards because these special moments can so easily be forgotten.
Nolie Baby Bath Tea
This is a really great product for moms who want to use a totally natural and organic skin care range on their newborn’s skin. The Nolie Baby Bath Tea is a pack of three tea bags that has ‘no nasty stuff’ – as the brand puts it. The beautifully parcelled fabric teabags are packed with natural cleaners, oatmeal and lavender along with the South African power skin ingredient rooibos as well as camomile. All the good stuff that is gentle on baby’s skin. This organic bath tea is a great alternative to soap and is ideal for sensitive skin and is gentle on newborns. A perfect way to cleanse and calm… They are super easy to use – just soak the tea bag in warm bath water for a few minutes, lightly squeeze the tea and bath… an optional alternative or addition to soaking the tea bag in the water is to rub baby’s skin with the soft tea bag. What makes this product amazing is when the tea bag has been dispersed in water, the oatmeal forms a soothing milky bath the works together with lavender as a natural cleanser.
Therific Natural Bath Salts
Something I picked up for myself (cause we deserve some pampering too, is the Therific Natural bubble bath salts. This little hessian bag of goodness improves sleep, is a natural muscle relaxant and anti-inflammatory and is said to alleviate headaches. Packed with magnesium, sulphate, parfum and colour, when pouring the entire contents of the sachet under hot running water, a relaxing 20 minute bath awaits a mom’s aching, tired body. Need I say more? At just R35 a sachet – this is a spoil moms need to have at least once a week!
Snuggle Time Breathable Bandana Bib
If your baby is anything like my little Maddie – the drool does not stop! I always need to ensure she has a bandana bib around her little neck. What I love about the Snuggle Time breathable bandana bib is the luxuriously soft multi layer muslin cotton it is made from. With cute little star prints – this bib absorbs moisture away from baby’s skin and is hypoallergenic. It is delicate and gentle on sensitive skin and catches drool like a dream!
MILK bum spray
This is one product I get excited about thinking – where have you been all my life? My Maddie just started solids and boy do those nappies smell! This is a little bottle that has saved my life! The MILK bum spray is an odour neutraliser that is a natural disinfectant which also moisturises and protects those precious little bottoms while making those terrible nappy changes bearable for moms and dads too! This nifty little 50ml bottle can easily fit into the nappy bag with ease. The bum spray contains Tea Tree, Dragonsantol and Bitter Orange extract which besides being an anti-inflammatory has healing qualities helping reduce skin irritation, dryness and diaper rash and it is also 100% anti-bacterial. A total MUST HAVE!
Cuddly Baby odor eliminating sachet
The Cuddly Baby sachets is a moms answer to elimination odour with a fresh fragrance for spaces that get smelly. Think – the nappy bins, stroller pockets, beneath car seats – this little miracle sachet eliminates and absorbs odour – magically… that’s the only way I could possibly describe it!
This is a product my husband LOVES! Bath time is his special time with Maddie and it’s totally a boy thing to magically make the bath water turn a different colour. Bath Magic’s fizzles is every child’s dream to create colourful bath magic for them to enjoy! These little tubs of 10 fizzles come in three different colours – green, red and blue (all individually scented) and are completely non-toxic and safe to use. Maddie’s face says it all…
