baby dee dee Sleepsie: Review & Coupon Code

Mummy Review: When I saw this cosy looking pair of footless  pyjamas, I had to ask about trying them to see how they fared for winter!

Disclosure: This product has been provided in exchange for a feature and review, however all opinions are my own, and I only feature products I love. See the full disclosure policy for details.
((Be sure to stay tuned if you love this product! There are exciting things in store! And check out the coupon if you want your very own!))

I hadn’t heard of baby dee dee before trying to find sleepwear for babies, and I am so glad that I have! This great brand makes some cosy winter sleepwear for babies and toddlers. This particular suit is just one of several options for sleepwear that baby dee dee creates. When I saw this innovative between the legs zipper, I had to check it out!

About the Brand: baby dee dee was created by a mum who desired to have a sleeping bag like a cocoon for her baby who had trouble sleeping. She created the Sleep nest sleeping bag, and went on to create other products that help baby’s sleep.

~My Experience~
My baby seemed to like this Sleepsie enough, and I like that the foot is an open foot design, to allow for bigger feet. The fabric was soft and felt breatheable for keeping bub from being too warm at night. The knee and elbow pads are a cute accent and do seem to help a little with my crawling child as he can tend to be hard on his legs and knees. The sizing was good and tight fitting, though it also fit my child who is around a 2-3 size without any issues of being too tight. The colour is gorgeous and perfect for girls or boys.

Overview:

The Material~ Indian Jersey Cotton. This material feels super soft and comfortable! I wish I had something out of this soft cotton for myself.

The Design~ The simple colours are perfect for this Sleepsie, and I love the minty green colour! The elbow and knee pads add a certain cuteness to the suit as well. It also comes in blue and pink.

The Zippers~ This sleepsuit has two zippers. One regular zipper for putting the sleepsuit on, and one across the bottom to use for nappy changes. The one along the bottom is ingenious and perfect for changing! I found it was easy enough to change with this zipper, and a brilliant idea so baby doesn’t have to get out of the whole suit to change.

Long Sleeve Design~ For the winter months, the long sleeve design is great. It comes in short sleeve as well for summer time, but I love the arms being covered regardless of season to prevent scratching.

Sizing~ This pyjama is very tight fitting and snug. We have the 18-24 Months size and it seems to fit my child who fits well into 12-18 month sizes. I might recommend sizing up The Sleepsie Pajamas come in sizes 3-6 months, 6-12 months, 12-18 months, 18-24 months, and size 2.

Mummy Confessions Scale for Winter Sleep Wear-
Easy to put on: 4/5– Because the Zipper along the length of the suit doesn’t go all the way down to the feet, it is a little more difficult to get on a squirmy baby, but not too difficult.
Stays on: 5/5- The suit is tighter fitting, so no issues with baby getting out of it when he shouldn’t.
Easy to change baby in: 4.5/5 – The between the leg zipper makes it especially easy to change baby without waking or taking the entire suit off. It can be a bit hard to zip back up with a squirmy baby, but not that bad.
Easy to take off: 4/5– Quite easy to remove, the tightness makes it a slight challenge with a squirmy baby, but easy enough to remove.
Keeps baby warm in winter: 5/5– The Indian cotton is very soft and warm.
Baby likes it? Baby didn’t seem to have any problems with it, though it was a little long, I just rolled up the legs and it was fine. My size 2-3 child loved the soft feel as well.
Material: 5/5 – Super soft cotton. I love the material!
Sizing: 4/5 – It seemed a little tight fitting. My bub is usually in a 12-18 months and this 18-24 Months size seemed tight, but long on him. You may want to size up depending on how chunky your baby is. It seemed to just fit my size 2-3 child, but wasn’t too tight, somthe matrial does have some stretch.

Overall Rating of baby dee dee : 4.5/5
Overall, I love the soft material, and I love the look with the elbow and knee pads. The material seems breatheable and warm, yet a little tight fitting. I think the between the legs zipper is amazing to have on baby clothing, and would help a lot for nighttime changes. The overall look is gorgeous, the feel is soft, and bub seems to like it. My child who wears a size 2-3 loved it as well, and has been asking to wear it around the house a bit lately. A win for mum and bubs!

My Little Love Heart: Review

Mummy Review: I’ve always loved boutique styles, and having something that is a unique style! I also love supporting local businesses and mums, so this is a win, win!

Disclosure: Some of these products were given to me in exchange for my honest opinion. I liked them so much, I bought more .

My Little Love Hearts is a boutique style shop for a range of accessories for babies, handmade in Australia. Their line of products includes bibs, hair bows, and teething rings. I have reviewed the products below which I have received and also purchased a couple more, in addition to the lovely presentation of how it arrived in the parcel!
Firstly, though, I just wanted to give some insight into the maker of these great products and what inspired her to create this brand, as well as her aspirations and personal favourite items. 🙂
(I will also be editing this post and putting better photos in once my little model will stand still)

What inspired you to start My Little Love Heart?

My interest in baby apparel and accessories, specifically bandana bibs, began after my daughter Natalia was born. As she was prone to reflux we started to go through a large amount of baby bibs. I found it very difficult to find products of the highest quality with modern and stylish patterns so I started making them myself.

What is your favourite product?

I would have to say I have three favourite products, firstly the Love Heart Teething ring as this is my own idea and design, it also represents what my brand is all about ! The second would have to be the bandana bib, this would be my most popular item and I love the feedback I get from customers. The third favourite would be the burp cloths, as they use the most fabric I really get to enjoy the detail on the wonderful patterns.

Are you working on anything that you’re excited about (new product, new styles, new designs, etc)?

Last month we just finished our first collaboration with Perth designer Megan Isabella Designs. She has developed the Succulents and Cactus print exclusively for My Little Love Heart. We love that it is a print that boys can wear as there are very few options for the little guys these days. We will also be adding 2 more fabrics in the coming months, once again something for the boys !

What is a goal you have for the future of your business?

I enjoy making these products and would love to increase the export side of the business through retail outlets around the world, especially my birth country of Colombia. It would be an amazing feeling walking into a shop in another country and seeing my products sold there.

This is the beautiful parcel I received from My Little Love Heart. I must say, the care that went into this presentation is lovely!

Need a nice gift? Your order comes nicely wrapped and ready to go (See photo at the top of the post)! this attention to detail is such a great touch!

Regular Bib
The Bibs made by My Little Love Heart are made in two sizes and has two plastic buttons to adjust to a proper size as well. Backed with towelling, it’s not thin and soaking through easily. I would say my baby is a medium level drooler, and I haven’t had an issue with it soaking through too quickly. Obviously, I take it off during naps, and let it dry.

I recommend the cactus and succulent pattern for its pure awesome look. I was overjoyed to receive this bib, and it sure is helping us have less wardrobe changes during the day, while still maintaining a fashionable look. I have gotten a ton of compliments on this bib, and just adore the pattern!

Bandana Bib
I love the style of the bandana bibs! For my boy especially, it makes him look even more handsome, and covers him under and around the neck. It is also backed with towelling and  keeps his neck dry. This is good, because my bub’s neck is particularly sensitive as he is prone to eczema. The bandana bib also comes in two sizes and has two buttons for adjustment within the size. My little one was lucky enough to try one out in the lovely feathered pattern. I have washed it a few times, as the drool is strong with my baby, and I have no complaints. It’s still just as cute and great for bubs to wear!

My model wasn’t being cooperative, but this bib matches nearly everything!


Bandummy
This particular style I have never seen before, and I think it is quite innovative in its design! After finding this style online, I had to order one! Bub is always losing his dummy (pacifier to those not fluent in Aussie) and this design allows me to keep it close. The best part is not needing an extra dangly bit to clip on, hoping my baby won’t rip it off minutes later. You can also attach teething toys!
It works best with dummies or teething toys that have a bit of space, and just fits one of my bubs preferred pacifiers. Bubby was putting his own dummy back in easily, and I didn’t have to search the whole house for it!

Snaps for different neck adjustments and the snaps to clip a pacifier or toy

Only one issue I would have with it is that, obviously, I cannot attach any other pacifiers that my babe prefers to it, as they would need a string attached to lace through the hole (which is a simple fix, anyways). Otherwise, this is a totally brilliant idea, and I’m stoked to have this in his wardrobe!

Bunny Teething ring
These eco-friendly Beech Hardwood teething rings are particularly lovely to look at, and I think the patterned moustache pattern makes it so cute! It comes in this handy little bag, so a beautiful little touch I appreciated! I’ve always loved this style of bunny ear-ed teething rings! I had to order one for my little man, as he is experiencing the dreaded teething, and everything is in his mouth. This ensures that he’s not crawling around and shoving things the other kids have left out in for amusement, but playing and chewing on this instead. Even better, his bandummy easily clips on to this, so it’s not getting lost! Little man is still getting used to it, but so far seems to be enjoying this one!

As you may know, I just love talking about great baby products, so out of these, I would highly recommend the Bandummy if you have a bub with a pacifier or teething toy they are attached to.

Fun (And FREE) Activities With Kids At Home

Mummy Confession: I’m not rich. So sometimes, I use things around the house to keep my kids entertained.

For this post, I have collaborated with fellow Mummy-Blogger Nicola from MummytoDex.com . Feel free to check out her Blog and the great things she has going there from Baby Food Recipes to Everyday Life Posts.

Here are 10 activities to keep babies and toddlers entertained with things you can find around the house! Free and fun! You can get as creative or simple as you wish with these – the sky is the limit!
Some of these activities require close monitoring, so please keep an eye on the little ones at all times when using any of these following suggestions! Some materials pose a suffocation or drowning hazard if left unattended.
(Water safety: even shallow water poses a drowning risk, so NEVER leave babies or children alone around water, no matter how little it may be!)

1. Drum circle
What you need: Some wooden or plastic spatulas, Pots and pans

What to do: Set up a circle using your pots, pans and bowls and place baby in the middle with a spatula. He will love banging on the different shaped objects and hearing the different noises that they make. Encourage him by holding your own spatula and tapping the different dishes.

2. Messy play
What you need: A plastic tablecloth (to protect your floor), A variety of cooked food, A bath ready and waiting for the aftermath

What to do: Cook a few bits of spaghetti and some kala chana and pour it all over the floor to let baby have at it.
I have to admit, most of it was consumed, hence why I used food as opposed to anything else. There are so many recipes on Pinterest for baby safe gloop and paint. The world is your oyster when it comes to messy play. Have the bath ready and waiting and then let babe enjoy a long soak afterwards.

3. Tummy Time Water Play
What you need: An oven dish, Plastic ducks, Some water

What to do: Pour a small amount of water into the oven dish and place some ducks in it. Place baby on his tummy and let him splash the water and move the ducks. Endless hours of entertainment for a baby who hasn’t yet learned to crawl.

4. Treasure baskets
What you need: An old washing up bowl, Any bits and pieces from around the house that baby loves

What to do: I bought a washing up bowl for 50p and started collecting stuff in it that Baby took a shine to such as a large yellow sponge, a whisk, measuring spoons and a plastic spatula. Whenever I need to keep him preoccupied for a few minutes, I bring the treasure basket out and let him have a play with the bits and bobs while I get my jobs done. This helps me massively when I’m trying to stop him crawling into the kitchen!

5. Wallet Play
What you need: Wallet & business cards or used iTunes cards, anything not too important in card form. (You can also do some pictures of the people they know or of objects they love. Laminate those if you want them to last.)

What to do: Give them the cards and the wallet. Let them practise motor skills by putting cards in and out.
I take a wallet everywhere with me, and this always offers some distraction at least for a little while. If you don’t want to use an old wallet, they’re cheap enough to buy, or you can order blank plastic cards online or cut up cardstock if you don’t wish to use old cards.

Just an old wallet and a couple cards. The more cards though, the better!

6. Tea Party/Picnic
What you need: Cups of any sort, pretend or real beverages, pretend or real food, pretend or real (or toy) guests, blanket/towel/sheet

What to do: On top of material (blanket/towel/sheet), arrange cups in either a hap-hazard order or even practise etiquette and manners. This can be educational or just downright fun! Use silly voices and give yourselves outrageous names. Pretend play is fun! Everyone loves a good High Tea! Host your own with or without costumes, real treats, guests, and superb conversations. For added bonus, send out an invite or create your own invitations for guests.

7. Fort Building
What you need: Sheets, Blankets, Towels and pillows. Support such as a cot, air dryer, or table. Couches or cushions also work well for this activity.

What to do: Using support, cover with materials you have. Create fort. For added bonus, host a tea party, watch a movie, tell stories, or read a book together inside. Forts are always fun!

**Just watch here for toppling things and you’ll be alright. My kids like to pretend my laundry is their fort every time I hang it up.**

8. Object Sorting
What you need: Any objects, big or small. I went with pegs (clothespins), and two or more containers.

What to do: Honestly, this one is just for the fact that kids love to move things from one place to another. Without fail, I find them digging through my clothespegs and sorting them, so I just gave them two different containers to sort. They are usually in a basket, and I provided them with an empty wipes container that they love to stick the pegs through the hole. This helps to develop hand-eye coordination I’m sure, and the kids just love moving things (as I’m sure you find with their toys, too). For more complexity, find coloured containers and have them sort according to colour, shape, or size!

9. Scavenger Hunt
What you need: Coloured containers, or colours on a piece of paper, and your house.

What to do: Colour on a piece of paper if you don’t have coloured containers, and have the children look around the house for anything of that colour. If you have containers, have them put them inside. You can specify to various categories, like “your toys that are this colour,” “objects in this room with these colours,” or just have fun with it. Alternatively, go outside and find things of various colours, too. Pinterest has hundreds of ideas for various scavenger hunts, so check these ones out!

10. Colouring-in-a-Box
What you need: Box big enough for child to fit in, crayons/markers/colouring utensils, stickers and other craft items are optional

What to do: Place child in box with colouring utensils. Let them go crazy! Obviously, you need to watch and ensure the box doesn’t topple, or that your munchkin doesn’t eat the crayons, but this can be a decently calming activity.
This is such a great idea I read a long time ago, and my kids absolutely love it! Mum loves that it keeps the colouring tools contained and off the walls. (Side not: make sure the box isn’t near the walls…) I instituted a “crayons stay in the big box” rule when we had a really big box they used. No complaints from my child, just lots of creativity and fun! Afterwards, you can just recycle the box, or even better, use it as a fort or cut it up and make a cool house! So many uses, and kids love boxes!

fun, boxes, kids, activities, free activities
What did I tell you? Kids love boxes!

I hope these ideas can lend some help to you mamas out there whether you are looking for something to distract for that moment, or something fun and educational. Add your twist of creativity! Have fun with your children and remember, sometimes the best toys are right under our noses.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas!

Mummy Confession: I’m all for sappy, cliche, lovey-dovey things!

Valentines gifts, valentine, valentines, Valentine's Day gifts, I love you, I love you sign language, baby, toddler, sibling, sibling love

So, I figured I would compile a list of suggestions for Valentines Day. Take note, these can be used Year-round anyways, but I know that many people buy gifts for Valentines as well. And, just in case you leave it until the last minute, check out this compiled list of last minute gifts.

Even if you don’t do “the Valentines thing” then keep these in mind for birthdays, Christmases, and other gift giving occasions!

This post was not sponsored by or paid for by any of the following companies, but it does contain affiliate links (see disclosure policy). If you prefer not to click the links, please be sure to use a Cashback website to purchase online for a little back in your pocket!

Subscription Boxes
Some of the gifts I’ve been checking out a lot lately have been the monthly subscription boxes, and it seems as good a time as any to consider purchasing a once-off subscription or ongoing subscription!

The Loot Crate is possibly the top box I am interested in- solely for the fact that my husband is a self-professed geek. He loves all Marvel, DC Comics and associated topics, so this seemed like a great pick for him! I just got the original Loot Crate, BUT there are a ton of choices for this box! From Anime to Gaming, Marvel to J.K. Rowling, and even Pets. Search all of their boxes to find the one you love for the one you love! You will not be lacking choices with this gift. Use the link provided for $5 off your first box!
Ships Worldwide

The Dollar Shave Club is another subscription box, and as it may appear solely for men, I assure you women could use this, too! (But maybe not a great Valentine’s Gift for her unless she has hinted for something of the type.) Subscriptions range from $4-$10 per month for 4-5 razors and you are free to stop at any time! What a bargain for razors!
This club is available to Australia, USA and Canada.

BellaBox is a woman’s beauty sample box with 5 or more beauty samples. (Right now, subscriptions are open for $12.95, and they are nearly sold out!)  For the men, there is Bellobox. This is a men’s quarterly box filled with men’s personal care products. And, if you know someone expecting, they even have a BellaBaby with varying baby products. These all contain surprises that vary box to box delivered straight to your door! Right now, they have a deal going for $5 off your first box!
These subscriptions are available to Australia only. (Search Google and I’m sure you can find something close.)

Wrappable Gifts
Ok, so if you prefer to have something to wrap up that’s a little more than just the typical card, flowers, and chocolates, here are some alternatives. I, however, love flowers and cards, too!

Yellow Octopus is a place to find unique gifts for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life. They have ideas in all price ranges. How neat is this scrabble magnets set?
Yellow Octopus does ship internationally, but the shipping rate is quite high (flat rate, $69)

Frank Body for all your body pampering needs! I recently stumbled upon this site and thought it a great idea for coffee lovers! Why? Their body scrub is coffee based! How cool! Definitely something different! They also have lovely kits with a variety of products if you aren’t quite sure what to choose. This has to be my top pick personally (hint hint hubs)!
This one is available worldwide, so get shopping!

For a fitness-inspired gift, how about the Jawbone Up-Move or Up24 for under $50, or the Garmin Vivofit for under $100! I know fitness trackers can be pricey, but these ones are generally affordable! Shipping for these varies from country to cohntry

Need a little something for the kiddies as well? The Amazon list is lacking for the tiny ones, but my little loves picked some of their favourites! Obviously, use toys according to their age recommendations.


Do you want to have something simple or more personalised than the suggestions mentioned so far? Check out my Pinterest Board for more Ideas (oh, and there’s some cute craft ideas for the kids to do as well)!

Whether your budget is big or small, or even if you don’t do anything at all, I hope these suggestions help with your gift giving (even if it’s a non-Valentine’s deal)!

What are your traditions for Valentine’s Day? Do you give gifts, cards, or something else? What do you like to receive?

Teething: Where Sleep Goes To Die.

Mummy Confession: I despise teething.

With every ounce of my being, I abhor the teething stage. My poor, helpless child, who has no idea about what is going on, is in pain. He can’t tell me about it. All he does is cry. No apparent reason for this, but as I open his mouth, I peer in and see them. It looks different than yesterday, and two spots are starting to resemble parking spots for his first pearly whites. Surely he is too young for this treachery?

Teething is the bane of existence for any infant or toddler and their mother. It turns our sweet cherubs into psychotic beings. Some are lucky to have a child barely effected by the milestone, but I have never been in that position. Below, I have compiled a bit of my tool belt for teething essentials for the soothing of baby and the sanity of mum (and anyone in baby’s life).

The following contains affiliate links. (See disclosure policy.)

1. Washcloth, damp and frozen.
Give baby this to chew on and help soothe those sore gums. Everyone has to have something like this around the house, so no need to buy. (Obviously just make sure it is clean and monitor use.)

2. Kids Munch Mitt
Now, I haven’t personally used this one, but I have heard from mums first hand that this is an excellent product. Especially for the littles who can’t quite grasp toys as easily, this if perfect. It’s available on Amazon and even ships to other countries!

photo source: Amazon.com

3. Teething Toys
These are a no-brainers, and the range for these toys is endless! From the Nuby Teething Keys to the Banana Teether to the infamous Sophie the Giraffe (just keep this one out of water to reduce risk of mould), you can find these fairly decently priced in many stores. Heaps of mothers I know have used these specific toys, and if you look for others, just be sure they are made by a reputable brand, and preferably have a high recommendation from others. (I check Amazon for reviews on everything!)

4. Munchkin Fresh Feeder
Not just for weaning and solids! This is an excellent tool for a teething baby! If your baby is eating solids, pop in a cold or frozen fruit or frozen yoghurt. How to freeze? Use an ice tray. Simple! For the babies not on solids yet, freeze a cube of breast milk or formula And put a bib on baby and let them have at it! Just be sure to monitor any consumption of food, especially the frozen things, using them only for short periods of time.

5. Bibs . Lots of bibs.
The dribble is real for a lot of babies! None of mine have had it quite as bad as my current tiniest! Thicker or plastic-backed bibs are your best bet for avoiding soaked clothing! The Nuby teething bib is also an excellent product, as it has an attached teether at the end of the bib, so it’s easy to reach and use for baby!


6. A sense of humour
Poor little bubs, and poor mama! A little laugh has a lot of power in dealing with the stress of teething, and will help take your baby’s mind off of the pain! Look into some funny YouTube videos, memes, or Pinterest boards. Put a hilarious movie on after a long day.

7. Teething gel/tablets
There are so many options for various gels, tablets and elixirs for teething! Many are natural. So much more than just a smudge of whiskey on the gums for relief!

8. Baby Paracetamol or Ibuprofen
Desperate times call for medicine! If bubs is truly inconsolable, use a pain reliever in accordance with the instructions. If you would take it for the pain, these little ones need it more!

9. Nappies and Nappy Rash Cream
Teething can see nasty rashes and explosions of epic proportions. Be sure your nappies (diapers to you Americans) are stocked, and find a good rash cream and barrier cream. I highly recommend Sudocream for Aussies, as its thick and stays on! From Americans, I have heard good things about Boudreaux’s Butt Paste

10. A nice bath
If your child enjoys baths, they can be an excellent way to calm down and distract from teething. They are also a helpful way to wind baby down for the night and help them sleep.

11. A good wind-down for mum and any associated party
A good book, a glass of wine or hot cocoa, or whatever you go to is for relaxation- do it! Take a nice bath, or just get out into the fresh air to take a minute to breathe! Make sure anyone else who is under the same roof has something for them, too. Teething is rough on everybody in baby’s proximity! Chocolates for the kids to help out and give peace for a minute is well received (like there’s any doubt).

Honourable Mentions include a Amber teething necklaces and essential oils. It’s best to consult a professional first and use only as directed. Refrain from using necklace while baby is unattended or sleeping.

I really hope this helps someone out there, as these products have had their place in helping me or people I know. What products, tips and tricks do you have for teething babies and toddlers?
