    What is so great about wool?

    Wool is an incrediable natural material!

    Breathable - wool regulates itself according to an individual's own body temperature.  It provides warmth in the winter by wicking moisture away from the skin whilst trapping an insulating layer of air and is cool in the summer. because is removes excess heat and moisture from the body by drawing in air.

    Naturally water resistent and dirt repellent - moisture vapour and dirt sits on the surface meaning that baby stays dry and it requires very little cleaning or washing.  It dries quickly and did you know it is even flame retardent!

    Naturally hypoallergenic - wool doesn't collect static which attracts the dust that can carry allergens, making it a great chooice for babies and sufferers of asthma.

    Organic wool - is pesticide free making it gentle on delicate skin.

    Eco-friendly - eco-friendly process are used in the prodcution of wool and eco-freindly dyes are used when dying organic wool.

     

    All items are available from our shop.

  3. 3 feeding essentials no new mum can do without!
     Breastfeeding
    1 - Organic muslins

    Whether you're breast or bottle feeding, I don't think it's possible to have enough muslins!  For burps and dribbles, use them to place under baby's chin when feeding or over your shouder when burping.  A great tip is to place a folded one under baby's head when he/she is in the pram or moses basket so the sheets need changing less often.  However, ALWAYS make sure the muslin is securely tucked under the edges of the matress so there is no danger of it becoming loose if baby wriggles.

    2 - Organic breastpads

    Breastpads are a must for new and breastfeeding mums!  Organic, washable breastpads have a number of advantages over disosible ones.

    • Kinder to the skin - as they are plastic and chemical free organic breastpads are great for sensitive skin and for those who prefer to choose organic over synthetic materials.  Silk has natural anti-inflammatory properties and is cooling and soothing next to the skin.
    • Comfortable, soft and breathable - the natural materials of cotton, silk and wool are extremely soft and breathable meaning they can help to prevent infections and soreness.
    • Naturally absorbent - the wool sandwiched between silk and layers or organic cotton are naturally absorbent meaning milk is wicked away from the skin.
    • Kind on your pocket - good qualilty reusable breatpads can be used for more than one baby.  Mine saw me throught two!
    • Great for the environment - unlike disposible pads, organic, resuable pads can be recycled rather than ending up in landfill.

    A top tip is to double up on the pads at night.  I found at least 5 pairs of pads are needed to make sure you always have some handy.
