Feeding and Bonding go hand in hand

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, March 13, 2012, In : Nursery Furniture 
Feeding time is a special moment where Mom gets to provide Baby with one of his fundamental needs: nutrition.
It is also a time to cuddle Baby close and to lovingly admire all those little things that make that little human being so special: the curl of the toes, the crinkle of a tiny nose, tiny hands and feet so perfectly proportioned... this is real bonding time!

New Moms are told that having a comfortable chair to sit in while feeding is important to ensure feeding time is a relaxed and soo...

The importance of layout when decorating a nursery

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Monday, October 31, 2011, In : Decor 
Decorating a nursery is an exciting time for parents!

There are many factors that should be considered when you start out choosing the furniture and decor for the nursery, and we are going to cover the most important ones here.
Nursery furniture should not only be durable, functional and safe, but must also fit into the room you have chosen as your baby's room.

The size of the room plays a very important role in selecting the right nursery furniture
As beautiful as large sleigh cots and oversi...

Themed Mosquito nets on promotion

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, October 4, 2011, In : Decor 
Summer is here and with those warm balmy nights comes the invasion of the Summer nuisance. The mosquito!

Not only does the mosquito’s incessant buzzing interfere with a good night’s sleep; but their bite leaves an itchy, irritating welt long after these little blood suckers have had their fill.

Babies in particular are more vulnerable to these pests, as they do not have the satisfaction of scratching an itchy bite, which can leave Baby irritable and niggly.

A mosquito net over Baby’s...

Wall murals for a nursery

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, In : Decor 
Spring is such a special time for me :-)
It is as though the world is waking from a long hibernation and shedding it's drab coat.

It's a season of new beginnings, sunshine, blossoms and grassy meadows.
Your Spring nursery can represent all these wonderful fresh elements too.

My favourite colour for walls is green - soft, fresh and reminiscent of rolling hills and dewy knowles.
Add to this backdrop two or three frolicking little lamb murals, or some budding branches of a painted tree in one corner...

Themed nursery vs neutral nursery

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Friday, August 26, 2011, In : Decor 

When it comes to decorating your nursery, it is really all about personal preference, and not to much about what the current decor trends are.

A nursery is not just a place where your baby will sleep, it is also the space that you will spend most of your time in, with bathing, dressing, feeding, play and relaxing.
So take this into consideration too, when deciding on the theme and colour scheme of your nursery.

If you love the traditional blue for boys, pink for girls, then go with this, as you ...

Swaddling your baby

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Tuesday, August 2, 2011, In : For Moms 
When I had my first baby (who is now 23 years old :-) ) I was shown by the sisters at the maternity home how to swaddle her.
This process at first looked to me like some kind of restraining method, and I wanted my baby to be free to kick and enjoy her new found open space... but I soon realised the purpose of swaddling and it became a favoured bed time ritual for all my babies right up until they were 3 months old.

Swaddling your baby has a number of benefits, the most important one being that ...

Planning a Baby shower

Posted by Yvette Scholtz on Thursday, February 4, 2010, In : For Moms 

Are you or your best friend planning your Baby shower?

Do you have an idea of what you'd like, but aren't quite sure if you should make invitiations, or simply sms your guests; if you should make, hire or buy your decorations; where you should host your party; and if you should hire a caterer, ask Granny to make her famous pasta, or ask everyone to bring a plate of eats?

Well, I have great news for you!

I have decided to include Baby shower hosting to my list of services for all my Mommies and ...
