Baby Vapour Balms

Written by Vanessa on July 24th, 2017.      0 comments

With winter well & truly making it's presence known across the country & no sign of it letting up anytime soon, you may be experiencing sniffles, nasty colds & other miserable bugs in your household.  Winter can be tough on your little one (& you) and finding relief with well known remedies such as baby vapour balms is common practice.

We rub these into our children’s skin (and our own) in order to soothe and protect them.

Vapour balms are well known remedies to help:
 
  • Bring warmth to the body
  • Clear congested breathing
  • Clear the sinuses
  • Clear the air when used in a vaporiser
It is normal to rub these on the chest, back, neck, feet & under the nose which means quite a bit of product is in contact with your baby's (or your) skin at any one time.  Unfortunately many of the traditional vapour rubs available from your local supermarket contain a heavy petroleum base.

There is a 100% natural & organic alternative that is completely free from nasty petrochemicals like petroleum and mineral oil, so it’s safe to use from birth on delicate newborn skin. Instead, it is made from natural Beeswax, Certified Organic Shea Butter and infused with essential oils of Spearmint, Lemon, Eucalyptus and Rosemary. This fresh and zesty balm absorbs gently into the skin to melt away discomfort and restlessness.

It's time to throw away the old balms hiding in your bathroom & be introduced to the Little Innoscents Winter Blues Vapour Balm

Little Innoscents Winter Blues Vapour Balm Ingredients:
Sunflower Oil*, Shea Butter*, Beeswax*,  Avocado Oil*, Spearmint Oil*, Wintergreen Oil, Lemon Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, Peppermint Oil. *Certified Organic by ACO
 

Keith Haring Limited Edition Ergobaby Carriers

Written by Vanessa on July 6th, 2017.      0 comments

Keith Haring (1958-90), was best known for being one of the most influential young artists of his time. He believed in the accessibility of art for everyone, which is why despite being offered large sums of money for his work, you can find them in public spaces all over the globe, from the streets and subways of New York all the way to Tokyo, Japan.
 
Haring’s art is whimsical, colourful and relatable and easy for all to understand, which is why it is still loved by art critics and children alike to this day. Much of his artworks revolve around the concepts of birth, death, love and war, sending a message of how others should be treated, encouraging respect and equality for all people. 
 
We are excited to offer two Keith Haring special edition prints for both the award-winning Ergobaby 360 and Adapt carriers. Both prints embrace Haring’s distinctive artistic style of simple lines and lively figures. “Black” features a funky monochrome print of Haring’s iconic chalk art drawings on a black canvas body, “Pop” contrasts this with a bright and bold print that features Haring’s signature colourful and lively hand drawn figures on a white canvas body. 

We have very limited stock & once they are gone, they are gone forever so if you want to be the proud owner of a piece of Keith Haring art on a very practical & usable canvas, then order yours today!  They are in stock & available for dispatch now!

It can be hard to find the perfect baby shower or new baby gift.  You want something that both bubs & the new parents will love, i.e non noisy!

The stunning toy range from Weegoamigo is perfect.  

The handmade, yes you read that correctly, handmade! crochet rattles are so cute with striking colours & textures and they are the perfect size for teensy tiny hands to hold.  Plus they are machine washable which is an added bonus for parents!

A perfect cuddly companion for a little poppet is one of the gorgeous characters from the Weegoamigo Pearl Knit range. One of these would be sure to become the lucky recipient's best friend for life!
They are specially woven to be tactile which makes them perfect for cuddles & they have a weighted bottom which allows them to sit so they can look beautiful on a shelf when they aren't being cuddled & they can attend tea parties with their new best friend.

Written by Vanessa on April 7th, 2017.      0 comments

Just in time for the colder weather, our shipment of new season Lamington merino socks have arrived, yay!

We love Lamington socks here at Belly Beyond, in fact everyone in our office owns at least a few pairs!

Made in New Zealand from 70% fine merino wool, these are the ultimate socks to keep feet & legs toasty warm on chilly days.
They are knee-length & are the only socks around for little ones that will actually stay on & stay up.

An essential item for newborns, they are a must have for your hospital bag.  They also make a gorgeous baby shower or new baby gift.

These socks are not just for babies though, we have kid sizes up to 4-6 years, plus we have a fab range for Mum too!

Have a look at the cool new colours for 2017, plus you can grab a bargain on last year's styles, whilst stocks last!

Now that Autumn is here....

Written by Vanessa on March 21st, 2017.      0 comments

Brrr, these Autumn mornings are definitely a bit more chilly!  

Keeping baby's legs warm during nappy changes or nappy-free time on the colder days can be difficult but Bubbly Bubs Leg Warmers are designed just for this purpose.
Being cute and made from organic cotton just makes them more appealing!
Unlike socks, Bubbly Bubs Leg Warmers will stay on & you can keep your wee one's feet covered when it's chilly but expose them when it's play time.  They will also protect their precious crawling knees and you will add colour to their wardrobe!

One size fits most & there are a variety of cool colours & designs to choose from.  You can use them to keep baby's arms warm and even wear them yourself as an added layer under a t-shirt (ideal for camping or when skiing)!

The absolute best part is that they are only a crazy $3.98, yes you did read that correctly, $3.98!!  What are you waiting for?
