Today we’d like you to introduce you to Youla, the blogger & Instagrammer also known as Belle Abode – a mother of 3, a home decor enthusiast & an nursery organiser extraordinaire!
Everything in Youla’s home exudes Hamptons and the room for her third baby is no different. For Little Miss A’s room Youla chose some products from our range and today, we are happy to share the final outcome with you.
The main design direction Youla wanted to take with this nursery besides being Hamptons inspired, was to create a space that is whimsical, white and very girly.
The main features of the space are definitely the intricate wallpaper and the huge window with gorgeous plantation shutters. Having said that, even the so called ‘gap-fillers’ – all the little details – are so well thought-out & match one another perfectly. So, without further ado – let’s take a look at the final result Youla created!
In addition to often being tagged on our customer’s photos on Instagram we are also get so many emails and DMs with photos of brand new nurseries and even brand new babies! Definitely best part of this gig! Starting this month, we have decided to share a new nursery or similar from our community with you every month (with the permission of the author’s of course!)
This month’s beautiful nursery comes from Amanda who prepared all this for his little baby boy.
Amanda has decorated the walls of her new nursery with two Linn Wold posters from our store as well as 2 sets of Stickstay wall stickers.
The art print above the changing station is called Little Tobias and it is the perfect match for the Dusty Mint Hot Air Balloons. Both the print & stickers are super light and airy and work so well with the colour scheme & furniture of the entire room.
For the cot nook, Amanda has chosen another one of Linn’s latest artworks – Little Simo. Just like the Little Tobias print, Little Simo comes in two sizes – 30×40 and 50x70cm. In addition to the art print she has also gone with the Dark Blue Hot Air Balloon Stickers by Stickstay.
Some kids don’t like broccoli and some kids don’t like carrots, but some kids… don’t like their carrots touching their broccoli! Yup, true story. So what do you do? Enter – The Divided Plate!
We currently stock two types of Divided Plates – the silicone divided plate and the bamboo divided plate. Let’s take a closer look at both below.
Bamboo Divided Plates Shaped like Animals
The bamboo divided plate is actually part of a bigger tableware set called the Jules Dinner Set. The bamboo plate box set contains one large divided plate, one bowl, one drinking cup and one spoon.
This divided bamboo plate set is one of the latest additions to the Liewood family and it comes in 2 different shapes and 4 different colours.
Our Baby Bib range consists of bibs for two separate purposes – we have a variety of feeding bibs made of silicone and other materials that are perfect for starting solid foods & learning to eat; as well as a range of dribble and bandana bibs made of organic cotton for the teething babies. In this article below, we will introduce you to our amazing range of feeding bibs.
Silicone Baby Bibs
Liewood silicone bibs are super practical, easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The bibs are made from 100% LFGB approved food-grade silicone & they are completely free of nasty chemicals. No BPA or phthalates in sight!
The bib has a deep spill pocket to catch any spillage & food that doesn’t make it into your child’s mouth. The bibs are made of comfortable & flexible silicone, that is easily adjustable and have a safe fastening feature. They rounded neckband provides a snug, yet comfy fit.
Gentle silicone spoons for sensitive gums
Once your baby is around 6 months old, it is time to introduce them to solid foods. There is lot to research and discover in terms of food choices, quantities and timing, but there is also the matter of getting the right tools for the job – your tableware and cutlery. Here’s where Liewood silicone spoons come in.
Liewood’s silicone spoons are perfect for when your baby finally starts exploring food other than the one that comes from a bottle or their almighty mumma.
Oh those wonderful first months of having a brand new baby! At some point you will realise though that your little baby is not so much a baby anymore and one of the first big steps they will take will be getting to know solid foods.
Most parents start introducing solids to their babies around 5-7 month mark. Of course, every baby is different and depending on their pre-solids diet and your personal preferences you might want to start a bit sooner or a bit later, but eventually you will have to start it either way.
Not only will you then need to learn about what are the best foods to start expanding your baby’s diet with but also familiarise yourself with the best bowls & plates, bibs & spoons and so much more.
Around about seven months (or even earlier), babies begin to develop separation anxiety from their parents. Although this stage doesn’t last forever, it can prove challenging especially when transitioning to sleeping solo and when mum and dad’s paternal leave comes to an end and they have to return to work. Introducing a comfort item to your child soon after three months of age is a great tool to help combat separation anxiety and promote self-soothing and independence. Security blankets are tried and true tools for creating comfort and promoting confidence in your little one.

When it comes to feeding our little loves, we are constantly asking ourselves “what is on my child’s plate?” – Is it nutritious? Is it a choking hazard? Is it organic? But many of us rarely ask “what is my child’s plate made of?”.
