Doodlebug Summer 2014/15 Collection!

I’m hoping that you’ll indulge me for a moment while I share one of my new favourite designs… the doodlebug lion! Oh. My. Coolness. I love this little guy! He comes in a variety of colours, on both tees and onesies, and he is all kinds of awesome. Doodlebug have just released their second drop for summer and their range is exceptional quality; made from buttery soft, eco-friendly bamboo.

Oh… and did I mention how much I adore the doodlebug skinnies (as pictured above in “pink sparrow” and “lilac calla lilly”)…?

KID tested... Toddler Bites Sandwich Cutter!

Last week we had the pleasure of sharing a product from Thanks Mum called the OnTray. Today we’re road testing another handy invention – the Toddler Bites Sandwich Cutter. This simple, fun product cuts your sandwiches into 9 bite sized sandwich pieces and is designed for toddlers (18 months +) who are learning to self feed.

So here’s what I like about the Toddler Bites Sandwich Cutter. While you could certainly do the same job with your trusty old knife, during our testing phase this week we gave the job of “chief cutter” to Miss-Six-and-a-Half who loves to help out in kitchen and also loves to “coordinate” her little sister, Miss-Two. The plastic handles on the cutter made it safe for Miss-Six to use, and little sis thought her mini-sandwiches were a delight. Dad had the important job of eating all the leftover crusts, with bulldog buster chomping on a few as well.

Priced at a reasonable $10, we thought that this was a quirky product, which added a bit of playfulness to lunch preparation.

The verdict… convenient and fun!

KID tested... Ecoriginals Nappies!

I have a confession to make… I use disposable nappies. I love mother nature, and I truly care about the environment. I have tried cloth, and modern cloth, and I admire those who use them. However, for me… it just didn’t work out. So today I’m here to share a compromise, courtesy of Brisbane company Ecoriginals.

Ecoriginals Eco-friendly Disposable Nappies

Ecoriginals is a family business (mum, dad, and three kidlets) who, like myself, found cloth nappies difficult to manage with a busy schedule and frequent travelling. Their range of eco-friendly disposable nappies was designed with three key nappy necessities in mind: quality, affordability, and eco credentials that you can trust.

Here’s the low down… Ecoriginals are made from plant based materials, and are 100% free from chlorine, phthalates, fragrances, lotions, latex and heavy metals (as tested by the CSIRO JUL14). The absorbency comes from chlorine free wood pulp from sustainably farmed forests with the international FSC tick of approval, and the leak guard is made from Cardia Compostable which is fully biodegradable and is up to 5 times more breathable than the plastic layers inside normal nappies.

What did we think? Well, we tried the Ecoriginals for a week and the good news is that we didn’t have any daytime leaks. We found the nappies to be durable, a comfy fit, and kind on soft little baby bottoms. The tabs held tight and withstood wiggling, rolling, squirming, readjusting, and crawling. When using the nappy overnight, we did find that the absorbency layer felt a little bit more “saturated” than we had previously experienced with the other big name brands. However, we were prepared to make this trade off with the peace of mind that comes from contributing to less land fill.

The verdict… a refreshing, affordable alternative to sooth your eco-guilt!
