Peace lilySpathiphyllum

Helping to remove harmful benzene, trichloroethylene, and formaldehyde toxins.

OrchidOrchidaceae

Loves loads of natural light and less water.

Quick Note: Even those these plants are considered non-poisonous for children, they could still pose a choking hazard or cause an upset stomach if ingested. It’s best to keep them out of reach of young children and watch for any fallen leaves.

Goodbyn OrangeGoodbyn Purple

I thought, as little one will get older the backpack will get lighter but I have yet to witness this. Carrying snacks around in small pots fills up half the bag.  Until I spotted this great Goodbyn lunchbox.  With 5 different compartments and complete with a water bottle. Made with FDA-approved materials and 100% recyclable, and with stickers to custom your lunchbox. Perfect solution and great colours too, available here.

Say Hello...PaboboLumilove PinkLumilove Blue

We were very excited to receive in the post a lovely  Barbapapa Lumilove from the Pabobo team. The Barbapapa was perfect for my little ones room, filling the room with a soft and comforting glow. There are a few cool features that come with the Barbapapa, the one feature we both love is that the Barbapapa is soft to touch and remains cool so my little one has the option to give a little cuddle in bed. Charging is very smart indeed, no electrical contact.

Simply charge on the “smart charge” base and once the Barbapapa is removed from the base it turns on and can last up to 11 hours. You also have the option to turn off with a simple button underneath. A great Eco-friendly light source, Barbapapa meets all the required standards and is suitable from birth. Available in two soft colours, here. More exciting news Pabobo have created an app too, perfect for those family holidays.

Since using the Barbapapa bedtime have been pretty fun and relaxing knowing that I have Barbapapa protecting over my little one!

tilty cup

Tilty Cup

Why oh why didn’t I find this Tilty cup sooner. A must-have essential. The Tilty cup’s ergonomic design creates a comfortable and natural drinking experience. This is helped with the juice being at an angle, it flows to the spout with ease so your little one doesn’t have to tilt their head to far back. Available here.

nook

Nook LilyPad PlayMatThere are so many cool brands out there I can’t keep up. One being a brand called Nook Sleep Systems. Totally in love with this LilyPad PlayMat, ideal for tummy time and playtime. Completely organic, featuring a patented asymmetrical surface that facilitates airflow. Also one of the many features includes a natural eucalyptus to regulate temperature and help prevent infants from overheating. Great colours too.
