BabyBaby HQ

No. 21 - where is all happens...

No man nor mother is exempt from the labour of love...

Lynette hard at work.

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.
