Media Release

Kiwi rash cream wins international award

13 December 2009

BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream is as a winner in the iParenting Media Awards Greatest Products of 2009. The cream’s unique three way action of preventing, healing and protecting the skin means BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream cures even the most resistant nappy rash.

The prestigious iParenting Media Awards programme honors only a selected few with the consumer award. Providing a credible and objective method of determining outstanding products in the marketplace, products are reviewed by parents, experts, licensed childcare centers and schools.

BabyBaby director Jodee Reid is ecstatic about the win.

“To have our New Zealand-made product recognised in an international market is very humbling. We are so excited to be rated in such high regard.”

Jodee knew she had a winner on her hands but says it’s wonderful to be officially recognised. Many parents already know how effective the cream is.

One long time faithful user of the BabyBaby range of products, Nikki Burns found that the BabyBaby Nappy Rash Cream healed her children's nappy rash within a day - a huge relief after trying at least four other creams in the past.

“Babybaby has an amazing range of creams that really are worth trying and the fact they offer 100% money back means it costs you nothing to try it,” says Nikki.

The full range of quality skin care products offered by BabyBaby is designed specifically for children. The not-so-secret New Zealand native ingredients Manuka and Kanuka oils are used as a cure and prevention treatment.

BabyBaby is owned and operated by New Zealander Jodee Reid, a fully trained esthetician, savvy business woman and mother of four. One of her children is Matisse Reid who captured the hearts of Hawke’s Bay’s public due to a rare medical condition that means she can’t eat and desperately needs a multiple organ transplant.

Despite the challenge of caring for an ill child, Jodee is a passionate and driven business woman who has established a loyal customer base and wide range of products that they are continually developing to meet the demands of consumers.

Jodee currently resides with her family in the USA where she is opening a US-based branch of BabyBaby Skin Care.

iParenting Media Awards

The prestigious iParenting Media awards have announced BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream as one of the baby care product winners of the iParenting Media Awards Greatest Products of 2009.

BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream cures even the most resistant diaper rash with its unique three way action of preventing, healing and protecting the skin all at once.

Natural ingredients are used to reduce redness and irritability of the skin while protecting from further damage caused by moisture and outside irritants.

Used as a cure and a prevention thanks to our not so secret ingredients of Manuka and Kanuka oils. Native to New Zealand these oils work great individually but together they work magic. Likened to Tea Tree oil but kinder to the skin, these oils are a perfect blend for treating and preventing diaper rash.

BabyBaby Barrier Nappy Rash Cream - Prevent, Heal and Protect against Diaper Rash.

Jodee Reid, owner of BabyBaby is ecstatic about the win. “To have our New Zealand made product recognized in an International market is very humbling, we are so excited to be rated in such high regard”. Having trialed the product on her own children before launching to the public Reid knew she had a winner on her hands and now it is confirmed.

To be considered for an iParenting Media Award, companies submitted four identical samples of each product that were precisely matched using iParenting's state-of-the-art technology to experienced reviewers within iParenting's database. Products were thoroughly reviewed and evaluated by a variety of sources including experts and families. Results were compiled and submitted to the iParenting Media Executive Committee for final approval.

Independent Product Review by

BabyBaby have recently added a Cradle Cap Shampoo to their range, to go with their Natural Conditioner. My 3 year old daughter Emily suffered from cradle cap as a baby and despite trying oils and things, it never really went away and as her hair grew, you just didn’t notice it anymore. When she recently got chicken pox all through her scalp I noticed that the cradle cap was still there and quite bad. Add to that chicken pox scabs and her scalp was not pretty!

I used the BabyBaby Cradle Cap Shampoo on her hair at every bath or shower (it is safe to use every day) and within 2 weeks I saw a huge difference in her scalp. It seemed to help if I used the shampoo, and then the conditioner and I combed the hair while the conditioner was still in and it was so easy and tangle free and really helped get the flakes out. The shampoo foams up nicely and feels and smells great.

Since you only need to use a tiny bit of shampoo (and be careful as it does come out quite fast!) the shampoo lasts for ages so it is great value for money. I’ve been using it on 2 kids for well over a month and I’m not anywhere near half way through it.

I also gave a sample of the Cradle Cap Shampoo to my friends to use on their 4 month old daughter who has quite bad cradle cap and after a few washes, there has been an improvement already. They plan to start using it every day and I’m sure that they will be rid of it completely soon.

The BabyBaby Natural Conditioner is a concentrate so you also only need to use a tiny amount. It is a fabulous conditioner which leaves the kids' hair feeling soft, fluffy and most importantly, tangle-free. It has a subtle natural fragrance from the oils. These products are so much better than the kids’ shampoos on the supermarket shelves, and I love the fact they are made using New Zealand’s oils and Manuka Honey! I’ve used both the shampoo and conditioner in my hair and I really like them for myself as well!

I highly recommend the BabyBaby range of skin and hair care products. Jodee from BabyBaby is a mum of 4 and qualified beauty therapist and product developer. She offers advice on your skin and your child’s skin from her website. With free delivery for purchases over $30 and a 100% money back guarantee on all her products, so you can’t go wrong with BabyBaby.

Play date anyone?

For anyone who has had to make a move with pre-schoolers, you know it is not easy. When Jaimee Bigwood moved to the Kapiti Coast in May 2008 she knew with a toddler and no. 2 on the way she needed support and fast. "I wanted to make sure I had support in place in a new town - by getting out and about and meeting other parents" said Jaimee.
"A year later and I was still discovering new things to try with our baby and toddler - and I am sure there is still more out there for us. While each new discovery is exciting, having all of the information in one place would have been easier for us".

In August 2009 Jaimee launched New Zealand’s first one-stop website for parents and caregivers of children Under 5.

Playdate is a resource
for those looking for places to take their Under 5’s. The main purpose of this website is to allow parents and caregivers to easily access a list of activities in their area including:
• Play Centres & Play Groups
• Music, Movement & Story Sessions
• Pre-schooler Friendly Cafes & Restaurants
• Buggy Suitable Walks & Parks
• Special Outings
• Support Organisations
• Changing & Toileting Facilities

Being able to search for activities by day, location or category makes
playdate ideal for finding new activities in your area, or for use when you are moving house or going on holiday. – helping parents and pre-schoolers get out and about!

Guess who takes Halloween very seriously?

A few years ago my husband and I struck gold at a garage sale selling Halloween props for as little and $1.00 each item. When in New Zealand I was always the annoying one on the street who decorated her house and encouraged local kids into trick or treating - yes I was disliked by many a neighbour on October 31st! Moving to America I could not wait for a true Halloween (I know I am a big kid and I go for all the holiday hype). This year is our third American Halloween and I have been a bit slack getting the decorations out, the cold weather has not been inspiring. However, by Saturday my house and yard will be transformed.

Here is a sneak peak...

Fabulous Fall

As most of our BabyBaby customers prepare for summer here at the Pittsburgh office we are preparing for snow. However first we get to enjoy one of my favorite times of year Fall or as us kiwi's call it Autumn.
As I look out my office window I see nothing but brilliant colour of all possible shades of red, brown, gold and green. Each day the leaves on the trees become more and more brilliant in colour. As the neighbourhood prepares for Halloween fairy lights appear on the eves of the houses and large orange pumpkins pop up in gardens. It is a stunning sight.

Just as stunning is our 2B Skin Care Competition with three chances to win.

Charity Auction for Shanade

When we heard about a fundraiser to help little Shanade Tallentire make her dreams come true we couldn't wait to be part of it. This story has touched our hearts and our thoughts are with Shanade and her family.

There is nothing more heart breaking than hearing that a child is sick. Instead of feeling just empathy a community have come together to help make Shanade's dreams come true.

Shanade Tallentire is 7 years old. She has a brain tumor called a diffuse intrinsic glioma. Its growing in the part of the brain that controls the central nervous system. Doctors have given her 6 months to live, and she will more than likely be confined to her bed within the next month.

Shanade's dream was very simple and one many of us take for granted - a trip to Auckland Zoo to see Cheetah Cubs.

Shanade's wish has been granted and money is now being raised to help with costs associated with the trip and to help her family.

An auction has been started on Sella Lots of cool things have been donated for auction from NZ businesses greatly due to the hard work put in by Jess at Exquisite Baby

Many companies have also made donations so friends could decorate Shanade's bedroom. It is heartwarming to see how many people are prepared to make a difference to this family to ensure their days together are memorable.

A facebook Page has been set up in support of Shanade.

Vitamin C can help skin heal, say scientists

Vitamin C can help skin heal, say scientists

Vitamin C can help promote wound healing and DNA repair in the skin, according to scientists who investigated the substance’s effect in human fibroblasts.

The research, published in the journal Free Radical Biology and Medicine, used a full genome wide analysis to look at the effect of vitamin C derivative ascorbic acid 2-phosphate (AA2P) on the genes of human fibroblasts.

In total, nearly 300 hundred genes were affected by the addition of AA2P and the researchers then looked at their role in the body to further define the vitamin’s effect.

According to the study, the addition of the vitamin helps stimulate fibroblasts out of their dormant state so they can help the skin heal as well as affecting the cells’ ability to move to the wounded area.

Stimulating the ability of DNA self repair

In addition, the vitamin also stimulated the ability of the DNA to repair itself after damage, as well as having strong antioxidant properties.

The scientists conclude that although the activation of specific signaling pathways remains to be elucidated, the results show that vitamin C in skin cells is required for efficient wound healing and the repair of potentially mutagenic products of DNA oxidation.

But we already knew this which is why we have Vitamin C in our 2B Skin Care range of products and both our BabyBaby and 2B Sunscreen.

Best replaced at night as UV light destroys Vitamin C hence why we have used it in our 2B Night Cream, healing damage done by exposure to UV light and other environmental dangers throughout the day. Topically Vitamin C should be an essential part of your beauty routine especially so if you have any exposure to UV light throughout the day.

2B Skin Care has taken care of it for you. Found in 2B Daily Facial Moisturiser, 2B Night Cream, 2B Eye Cream, 2B Sunscreen, BabyBaby Sunscreen.

Spring is in the Air...

The sun is trying to come out and with school holidays just around the corner it is time to start thinking sunscreen. Naturally we have two of the most beautiful sunscreen formulations on offer. BabyBaby sunscreen for infants is gentle enough for the newest member of your family as well as for older children. 2B sunscreen is perfect for you and is fantastic to use under or over make up - yes over make up. I press it through my make up so re-applying sunscreen is no longer a problem when you wear foundation and it is not greasy or oily so will not clog your skin.

Here is what some of our wonderful facebook fans had to say about our sunscreen:

This sunscreen is brilliant it's the only one I have used on our two girls, love the fact it has no nasty chemicals in it and we always get comments on the nice smell!!
Have the adult one too!!Rachel

Great sunscreen so good for sensitive skin.. i break out with other products but not, the babybaby it :)Kyla

The dreaded cradle cap

Cradle cap is a form of seborrhea dermatitis (sebum causing inflammation). Found mainly on the scalp and face. It appears as thick, oily, yellowish or brownish patches usually on the scalp and eye brows. The skin itself appears red, flaky and irritated.

Cradle cap is simply a build up of sweat and oil produced by overactive glands or occasionally an overgrowth of yeast may contribute to the condition.

Treatment of cradle cap:

Brush the scalp with a soft bristle brush to loosen the scales
For mild cradle cap shampoo daily with Cradle Cap Shampoo. The lavender and chamomile will help to regulate the sebum while the manuka honey has a powerful effect on regulating the sebum.
You may also massage in Comforting Massage Oil into the scalp prior to shampoo.

Do not pick cradle cap or scrape off scales unless they are already loose. You do not want to cause infection.

Cradle cap is generally not a serious condition so don't stress over it. Some kids seem more prone to others (I was lucky enough to have four children affected). There are myths and legends in regards to over shampooing and under shampooing children's hair, however it does come down to the individual child. If you need to use the shampoo every day to get on top of cradle cap then do so. If not then don't. If the cradle cap becomes irritating to the child then a yeast infection may have developed and it may be time to head of to the doctor. For more info please feel free to email me

Oh the labeling how we love thee...

Shelves are premium real estate and product fights for optimum positioning.

Our 'state of the art' contraption fills the inner of our famous Breast Feeding Pillow with polystyrene beans. We hold enough beans in our warehouse to fill 102 pillows - unless one of the BabyBaby kids is at the warehouse and decides to use a bag of beans as a trampoline, trust me these are the hardest things to clean up.

Products are taken from the surrounding shelves to the packing table ready to be boxed and dispatched.

That ends our tour. Have a great day and think of us hard at work :)

Sad or not?

I can't decide if I am sad, happy or indifferent to my baby starting school yesterday. I was not in tears like some mothers; as a working mother of four I was looking forward to the few hours a day of uninterrupted, guilt free office time.

I look at my little boy and wonder how he got so big and as he is the youngest I was a little sad to see the end of the pre-school era. I am sure soon enough he will join his siblings in the rebel against homework, getting out of bed on school mornings and the mad rush to pack the school bag before the bus comes. For now he is a willing participant and the excitement of school is still high in the air.

On the plus side I do not have any excuse not to bring exciting new things to BabyBaby - with all this freedom I have now!

As a mother of four I am always on the look out for a good bargain. Two years ago I found a spider man suit for my youngest son at a garage sale for just $1.00 My son has worn this suit so much so that we have had to patch up holes and re-sew seams. He has worn it at two Halloweens in a row plus to other dress up events and for no apparent reason except that he felt like dressing up. I live in an area where children only dress up for Halloween so I have had cars slow down and point at Mr. four wearing his spider man suit around the neighbourhood. Other kids are fascinated when they see spider man coming towards them in the super market and the preschool are so use to my boy coming in costume that they no longer batter an eye lid. I can not believe how one dollar has brought so much pleasure and fun.
Watching the spider man suit make its reappearance the other day after being discarded for the new Buzz Light Year costume I got to thinking how everyone needs that dollar bargain item. For the month of August if your purchase $50.00 worth of skin care you can choose one of our BabyBaby Products for just $1.00 Use the promo code ONE at check out.

Mothers Milk

I just came across this great organisation promoting the use of Human milk banking in New Zealand.
From their website: Donated breast milk is invaluable for babies in newborn intensive care (NICU), because it is their best source of nourishment and provides unique protection from infections. Premature babies fed breast milk are six times less likely to suffer a life threatening gastro-intestinal condition called necrotising enterocolitis.

On Christmas Day 2000 my own baby was born with a rare intestinal condition. She was full term but was unable to digest any food. In the hopes that one day she would be able to absorb I religiously expressed breast milk while she was in the NICU.
What I discovered was that as the mother of a full term infant I had tons of milk, my supply was not a problem, however, my baby would never get that milk. I also discovered that most of the mothers with premature babies did not have good milk supplies.
Here I was with excess milk and no baby to drink it and these tiny babies desperately needing breast milk which their frantic mothers could not supply.
I was not allowed to donate any of my breast milk and after three months an entire freezer full was discarded.
I think by having a human breast milk bank in New Zealand gives mothers the option to use it or not. It also means that for mothers like myself our efforts would not have been in vein.
There is a huge story in the US at the moment called Feeding Mosses. where 25 women took turns to breastfeed the baby after his mother died. This story has prompted a lot of discussion on breast milk banking.
I truly think the choice to use donated breast milk is up to the individual but at the moment we do not have the choice.

On average we blink over 100,000 times per day, and every time we smile, frown or make a funny face, we place a demand on the skin around the eyes. As a result the eyes are usually one of the first areas to show the first signs of ageing.

We should all start using anti-ageing eye cream on a regular basis at around twenty years of age; however, it is never too late to start and today we are offering a FREE 2B Eye Cream with the purchase of any two 2B Skin Care products*.

The skin around the eye is one of the most sensitive areas on the body. Because of this it is important to know how to properly apply eye creams. Proper application will reduce chances of irritation - including redness and swelling. Incorrect application can lead to causing more damage.

Here's how...

Only a tiny amount of any eye cream is needed to cover the area. Using the ring finger (as this finger has the softness touch) dot the eye cream along the edge of the bone surrounding the eye. One dot of cream pressed between the two ring fingers should be sufficient to cover the area. Gently pat (do not rub!) the cream into the skin - staying around the edge of the bone. Do not get closer! Eye creams, once absorbed into the skin, will spread. If the eye cream is applied too close to the eyelid - the cream will flood the delicate eye area and cause dark circles or worse increase the risk of product entering the eye causing swelling and irritation

Gus Gear

When I think of my friend Sarah I think of the term 'solve a problem and you have a business'. Sarah solved a problem and now has created a very unique niche online business called Gus Gear.
Not everyone needs Gus Gear in fact there are only around 5000 adults and children in New Zealand, my daughter Matisse being one of them. So what is Gus Gear - their tag line Helping medically challenged individuals build confidence and self esteem. For my daughter they provide a cover to hide her ostomy bag which she got when she was just 4 days old.
Most of you thankfully won't need to know what an ostomy is but for some of our children and many adults it is a life saving operation that allows the body to eliminate when the intestine is not working correctly. Although your life has been saved or improved you then need to cope with an ugly bag which sits on the abdomen and for littlies like mine, hangs below clothing lines and is difficult to hide. Thanks to Gus Gear children like mine can have discretion while sporting something pretty cool!
What impresses me most about Sarah is that she is a mum who is building a business to solve a problem but also copes with the many daily challenges of raising a medically complex child.
If you know anyone who has an ostomy please check out Gus Gear they also do covers for feeding tubes and pump bags.

Kim from Sticky Tiki also happens to be my sister and featuring in the spread are my gorgeous nephews (Zavia and Jasper) and niece (Kahlo). Before my family moved to the US my sister and I lived down the street from each other; her in her very hip but very old property and me in my brand new house by sea. Although our styles are worlds apart I love the 'new look' of her home which has changed dramatically since I was last there two and a half years ago.

Dear Deer Tree

From Kim at Sticky Tiki
Phew finally have this one done. I painted it about 5 months ago and it has been waiting to get Si's techy magic on it!! I am so excited as I think the kids find this one really magical and because there are so many ways to put it together it makes it a really interactive piece of art!... And because it is hand painted once on the wall looks as if you have painted on there yourself...really you could get away with passing it off as your own work of art.
We print on a really fine fabric (almost like and ultra fine canvas), we use Eco friendly inks and package our products in Eco friendly packaging..we are trying to do our bit. And because our stickers are reusable so long as they are looked after (not too much dust on the sticky side) they will last for years.

More info...

I have to add that the children in the pictures are my beautiful niece, Kahlo and very cute nephew Jasper or as my son calls him Basper!

The Great Kids Fashion Hunt

Free to join eScavenger Hunt - Fabulous prizes up for grabs!
Starts June 1st, 2009
Sign up now

BabyBaby have joined the great eScavenger hunt and have donated some fabulous prizes including our popular Breast Feeding Pillow.

The best part about this online competition is that the Ronald McDonald House Charities benefit. Our part was to donate some of the awesome prizes but to also make a direct donation to Ronald McDonald House (RMH) which happens to be one of our favorite charities.

In 2001 I was first introduced to the amazing RMH in Auckland when my daughter was admitted to Starship Children's Hospital. My family spent a total of five months at the House that year and became regulars to the house over the following years. My family have also been frequent guests at the Wellington RMH.

For families like ours with a chronically ill child having the use of such a fantastic facility has meant we could stay together as a family while making the hospital stay just that little more bearable. Until you are in the situation of having a sick child it is hard to understand the many levels of stress and emotion involved. The RMH charities not only understand but they have successfully come up with an incredible solution -a home away from home.

If you ever have the opportunity to support this cause it is one that really does directly support families. 100% of donations go to the Ronald McDonald Programs.

I hope you are never in the situation where you need to stay at the RMH but if you are, you will truly appreciate the incredible work of staff and volunteers and understand the dire need for this haven for families of ill children.

For more information on the RMH Charities visit RMHC

How far can they go?

Natasha from BabyBaby has just sent one of our funky breast feeding pillows off to the Middle East. They have now traveled all throughout New Zealand, Australia,The United States, Canada, Britain and France! Wow - how much further can they go? I guess our international customers are taking advantage of the poor NZ dollar and buying quality New Zealand made goods - yay for us!

So what is the Breast Feeding Pillow...
Our awesome 'Feeding Pillow' has become hugely popular. Its unique 'U' shape ensures this feeding pillow moulds to baby and you, easily, comfortably and correctly. Filled with polystyrene beans which are incased in there own inner means you control the height and comfort of the pillow.

It comes in a funky combination of machine washable, anti-pill polar fleece and like all our products is multi-functional from newborns to adults.

* Great for breast feeding and establishing correct feeding position for mother and baby.
* Supports mothers back during feeding preventing future back problems.
* Due to correct feeding position for baby, helps prevent feeding associated problems.
* A 'Must Have' for Breast feeding twins simultaneously.
* Supports the back of support people holding baby - great for partners and children.
* Supports baby while she is learning to sit.
* Back support for bed ridden adults.
* Machine washable and dries in no time.
* 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Breaking News - Mothers Day Awards...

A friend of mine sent me this today. It is pretty cool. If you have left it too late to send your mother a Mothers Day gift then this by email is a great alternative - cheap but it is the thought that counts - right?
