Just a few short months ago I was approaching exhaustion following months of broken sleep caring for my baby and 2 year old. I wanted to reward myself with a pair of organic pyjamas that were comfortable and respectable enough to wear all day (if I'd had one of 'those' nights), easy to feed from, yet stylish enough to answer the door if a friend decided to call over unannounced.
Thinking I couldn't possibly find pyjamas that ticked all these boxes I did some research and was delighted to stumble across sorella & me.
sorella & me is a collection of luxury sleepwear, loungewear and maternity wear designed by Melbourne sisters Alisha and Anna. Made from beautiful organic and fair trade fabrics, their garments aim to nurture a mother's body whilst protecting farmers and their children from harmful pesticides commonly used in conventional cotton farming.
I have loved wearing my sorella & me pyjamas and am thrilled to announce that this Mother's Day one lucky Sustainababy subscriber will WIN a sorella & me organic lounge wrap in feather grey.
Generous to wrap around your growing belly during pregnancy, the organic lounge wrap is the perfect cover up for all seasons. It provides the privacy you need to discretely nurse your newborn when out and about and is handy as an additional layer for an afternoon stroll.
This competition is now closed. Thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to our winner Rachael Shineton.

For many Australians, especially those living in regional areas, travelling long distances is a way of life. Having lived in Outback Australia for over 13 years, popping Mr 3 years and Mr 10 months in the car and driving the 600km to Adelaide has become second nature. I must admit though, the trip is a different ball game altogether when undertaken with a toilet training toddler.
Asking a child to "just hold on" until the next public toilet just doesn't work in the Outback where it's not unusual for rest areas to be more than 100 kms apart. Public toilets or even a roadhouse are even further again! It's hard enough for mums who can't quite hold on as long as we could before childbirth to last the distance, let alone a two year old!
For the times when public amenities aren't nearby and you can't immediately pull over and whip the potty out of the boot, the pop in car seat protector provides peace of mind. While they are fantastic for providing peace of mind on our country roads, I imagine they would be just as useful when stuck in traffic in our major cities.
Made from 100% polyester laminate with a fleece insert, the pop in car seat protector makes light work of soaking up any unexpected accidents. Available in several funky styles, they retail for $22, a tiny price compared to the price of the car seat they are protecting.
Sustainababy has one pop in car seat protector in grey to giveaway to a lucky follower. This competition has now closed. Congratulations to our winner Melissa Jones!

With much of Australia currently sweltering in the hottest summer temperatures seen for years, those of us not near the beach are longing to get to one....soon. If, like me, you live inland, perhaps the latest additions to the Babyjo range may be the closest you'll get to a beach for a while.
Inspired by Australia's Great Barrier Reef, Babyjo's Tropical Reef Stripe romper and blanket are made from the highest quality organic cotton. The blanket measures 100cm x 100cm and can be used as a baby swaddle, lightweight blanket or as a beach mat. The romper is available in sizes 000 (0-3 months) to 1 (12-18 months). In true eco fashion, their unisex design guarantees them to be used time and time again and they are very reasonably priced at $24.95 a piece.
To celebrate the arrival of this fresh range, we have a Babyjo pack containing one Tropical Reef Stripe blanket and romper (size 000) to give away to a lucky follower.
This competition closed at midday AEDST Wednesday 23 January. Congratulations to our winner Natalie Blanch.
