Because January felt like it had 864 days in it, we’re thrilled that February has a more-manageable 28 days. Bonus: your salary doesn’t have to stretch quite as far as it did last month. The perfect way to celebrate? By treating yourself! And we’ve found just the things…
The team here at BabyYumYum love buying local and when a Proudly South African brand also makes the lives of moms and moms-to-be easier, it definitely gets our stamp of approval. We’ve long been fans of Hannah Grace‘s maternity clothing but we’ve just discovered a new gem: the Hannah Grace Breastfeeding & Hospital nightie. It is made with the softest blend of cotton knit fabric to ensure it is both stretchy and breathable, plus it has a hidden panel for discreet breastfeeding making it an essential for any hospital bag. The nightie also comes in four colours and is nice enough to double up as a day dress. It’s available in sizes 32 to 50 so every mom – regardless of shape or size – can enjoy the comfort and convenience of breastfeeding-friendly sleepwear. Here’s an added bonus: you can buy a matching romper set for baby! P.S It’s currently on sale for only R230 so buy it now!
Sox & Jox
It’s here: the perfect gift for the person who has everything. Because honestly, who wouldn’t be thrilled to be gifted a pair of socks with your face on it?! Thank you Sox & Jox for making this dream a reality. Proud paw-rents can also opt to have their pet’s face printed on the socks. You can have your face printed on men’s jocks at the same time – so that’s Valentine’s Day sorted!
Siba’s Let’s Cook
Celebrity chef Siba Mtongana has done it again: her new cookbook, Let’s Cook (Penguin), is filled with all the mouth-watering recipes you’ve come to expect from her, but this time there’s a twist: the recipes have been formulated for kids, by kids, so cooking can be a fun family affair.
The BabyYumYum team loves a bargain – and we’re sure you do too. That’s why we are obsessed with our latest find: Pr3loved. Started by mom-of-three Lexi Giokos, you can buy or sell preloved baby and kids products that are still in good condition. Bed rails, nappy bins, prams, wendy houses – you really will find everything here, and at a great price too!
Public Service Announcement: the collective noun for a group of puffins is an ‘improbability’. We love the phrase so much that we’re not even surprised it has inspired an entire clothing collection. Proudly South African fashion brand Good Clothing have just launched their Puffins range (check it out below). How cute? Wishlist: everything in the collection.
The Broken Leg of Doom (Jonathan Ball)
An overly-enthusiastic Maisie breaks her leg while dancing. She ends up in hospital where things get stranger and more suspicious by the minute; weird noises at night, missing cuddly toys and the snack cart offering nothing but tuna sandwiches. The Broken Leg of Doom is a hilarious kids novel written by Pamela Butchart and illustrated by Thomas Flintham.
