Childish Notions

More and more parents today choose to use cotton nappies as the best way to care for their baby. Call them reusable nappies, washable nappies, real nappies or cotton nappies; by any name these are the modern, environmentally friendly alternative to disposables.

The Bambino Mio brand is founded on the principles of quality, convenience, comfort and style. With our continuous product development we are committed to providing you with the best cotton nappies and associated products available.

Bambino Mio offers a complete nappy system suitable for babies from newborn to potty training. Our nappies are 100% cotton which means they are naturally soft, breathable and absorbent, maintaining a healthy temperature.


Keeping socks on babies feet is no simple task. Little kick, tug at the toes and they're off!

Sock Ons are clever little things that keep those socks on. The garment is worn over the sock and 'locks' it into place with a patent pending design.

Sock Ons have been awarded the baby industries most coveted prize for innovation. Sock Ons are an ingenious and trendy solution to a very annoying problem and are quickly becoming a necessary item that no baby (or sane parent) can do without!

Sock Ons have been invented by a mum of five little boys who always lost their socks!
There are three samples available. Post a reply to this topic on why you would like to have the Bambino Mio or Sock Ons to get an extra ballot in the draw at our Meeting on Tuesday December 15th.

Thank-You Childish Notions for the samples of Bambino Mio and Sock Ons!


This week I have something special for everyone from Momzelle Breastfeeding Apparel. Heres a little blurb about what Momzelle is all about...

You are a fun, cute, green, soon-to-be nursing mom (or you have already been for a few months !) and having a baby is not stopping you from having a life. You take pride of your little "fashionista" side and want to remain attractive even you stay in your pj's until 11AM ! We are here to help you be active and outgoing and, above all, to ease your life when you breastfeed in public. Momzelle nursing tops have universal openings (which means that they fit every breast size) that guarantee discretion and comfort while you breastfeed. All of our styles are long through the body and are form fitting. You will feel good in those silky soft cotton and spandex nursing tops.

As you will be able to see for yourself, Momzelle nursing tops are very fashionable. There is no need to show your tummy in order to feed your precious milk to your baby, with Momzelle nursing clothing you can be both a wonderful Mom and a beautiful woman.



It's about time someone created a tool to help new parents remember the basic details of baby care. Now someone has.

ITZBEEN™ Baby Care Timer was developed by a new mom and dad who found themselves sleep-deprived and needing help to remember baby care details, such as when their baby last ate or napped. They tried charts and journals, but thought there had to be a better way. So, they created the ITZBEEN™: a multi-purpose nursery tool that helps new parents remember the basic details of baby care. The ITZBEEN™ has four timers that count up with the touch of a button, and a host of other helpful features, all designed with the needs of a new parent in mind.
This is one sample I really didn't want to give away and I wanted to keep it for myself :S
I will definately be purchacing one of these for my next baby, it really is a MUST HAVE!!!
For an extra ballot, write a comment on why you think the Itzbeen would be something you would benifit from having.

Grandma El's

This week our samples are from Grandma El's

Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention is a Patented Skin Soothing, and Healing Ointment. This unique Pediatrician Tested product has been used by Grandma El since 1974 to successfully treat and heal diaper rash.

Grandma El’s creates a skin softening, protective barrier which prevents wetness and stool enzymes from coming into contact with your baby’s bottom, while allowing the skin to breathe; something no other product offers. Grandma El’s promotes the growth of new skin collagen, which helps the healing process.

Grandma El has put an end to the white, messy paste, lotions, and creams. Grandma El’s knows that for the skin to heal, it needs to breathe. Other products coat the skin, and stop the skin from breathing, thereby slowing the healing process. Grandma El’s patented formula lets your baby’s skin breathe as it protects.

Recent studies have shown Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention to help in the following:
· Preventing skin breakdown
· Healing irritation and chapping
· Promoting the growth of new skin collagen
· Soothing and softens baby’s skin making for a comforting experience
· Allowing skin to ‘breathe’ while protecting the skin from wetness and bacterial contamination Stopping redness, itching, pain, and soreness

It really works, and its safe to use with Cloth Diapers! Thanks Grandma El's for the samples. Make a comment and you might get two!
