In your baby's first year of life, you will change his or her nappy between 2500 and 3000 times!
It's pretty interesting the first few hundred times, but let's face it, it gets rather monotonous thereafter.
Why not try something new to shake up your change table routine?!
There is more than one way to clean a baby's bum! Instead of the usual baby wipes, you can use Petit Kiddo's Baby Bum Cleanser on a cotton pad or cloth or even toilet paper to do the same thing. The advantage is that it will also moisturise AND protect your baby's skin so you don't need any additional products like powder or barrier cream.
For more info on this innovative, French-inspired product, head to our online store (link in bio)

That miracle of nature colloidal oatmeal stuff we were talking about this morning? We have it. In our store.
You can soak in it. You can make a face mask out of it or a paste to apply to unhappy skin. You can even use it on your scalp to alleviate itching! Or make a dry shampoo with it! So many uses.
Good for babies or their mamas or anyone in the family with troubled skin.

It sounds a bit like a porridge you'd eat for medicinal purposes in your old age, right?!
If that's about your guess as to what it is, or you kinda know vaguely what it is but would like to know more, read on:
"Colloidal oatmeal is simply oats ground into an extremely fine powder. When added to bathwater, it creates a milky dispersion that prevents the oatmeal from settling rapidly. So the oatmeal stays in the water and doesn’t just sink to the bottom of the bath. When you get into the tub, the colloidal oatmeal feels silky, as it coats, moisturizes, softens, and protects your skin. It helps smooth and comfort  itchy, scratchy, and dry skin.

Colloidal oatmeal may work great to help relieve:
dry, skin patches (Eczema), psoriasis,
acne, 
bug bites, 
sunburn,
and other minor skin irritations.
It may also help relieve:
chicken pox, 
poison ivy,
poison oak,
poison sumac,
and other itching and scratching rashes.
Since colloidal oatmeal has an anti-itch property that helps reduce the “need to itch,” soaking in the bath may bring soothing comfort to those infected. When your skin is itchy and irritated, its pH level may be higher. Colloidal Oatmeal may help bring the pH back to normal levels, taming “the need to itch.” Info from http://colloidaloatmeal.com/

Beautiful pic and words by @michellemckayphotographer:
I only have a couple of photographs of myself with either of my parents.
In the photograph I have with my mother, I'm about 6 months old. I'm sitting in her lap, her right arm wrapped tightly around my middle, my toddler sister nestled into her side. I'm just this chubby little squish in a pink bonnet hat and singlet, and my mother, her long braids falling loosely down around her slender face, is grinning so completely it goes right to her eyes. In that moment she is so happy.

I've spent countless hours staring at that picture, wondering at the mystery of this youthful, smiling woman. I've studied her face and seen my own features, marvelled at the way my baby self sat so comfortably on her knee. And I have thought on countless occasions how grateful I am to have that photograph, that documented piece of history that tells the story of a mother - my mother - on a sunny day in Coffs Harbour NSW, with two tiny smiling girls in her arms.

There is something deeply and intrinsically fascinating about seeing photographs of our child selves with our parents that speaks straight to our souls. That's why capturing families just *being* together is my favourite thing. Because what may seem ordinary right now will one day not only be treasured by us, but will be so deeply and wonderfully interesting, magical and special to our children.

Document your lives and all your little moments.
What an absolute gift that will be to give.

How many hours 'til bathtime?! This cheeky li'l rascal has been up since 3:45a.m. but we've still got a lloongg way to go before bath and bed... Sleep issues aside, we've been loving the dense lavender-laden foam of the 'a little wild' Skin Wash at bathtimes. Made from just three simple ingredients, it's all-natural, gentle and well, fun!
