It's Mothers Day next Sunday which also means it's Belly Beyond's 1st birthday!
To celebrate both, we are going to have some crazy specials starting with $10 long-sleeved T's and $15 winter Pj's from Albetta. Sizes 1-6 but stock is limited.
ssshhh. We have an upcoming deal on nappy bags so alarming we can't publicize it here. The only way you will hear about it AND be able to purchase is when we send the coupon code out in our newsletter next week so make sure you sign up! Believe me it's so nuts our accountant just called to check we hadn't lost our marbles.

Got our supply of milkMAN boxers the other day and just have to show you the packaging from the wonderful girls at HOTmilk.
Sure it relies on gender stereotypes for laughs but in a politically correct world it's nice to see touches of humour like this!
So how do you get your man a pair? Buy any two sets from the gorgeous range of HOTmilk (or 2 set plus 1 nightwear item) from Belly Beyond and we'll send you a pair for your milkMAN for FREE!
Enter the milkMAN competition
And while he's trying them on, get a pic and send it into the milkMAN competition. He can win
USD5000 worth of luxury travel and the title of New Zealands milkMAN. Competition closes 14 May.
A win, win situation all round really. You get sexy undies, he gets sexy undies and you could both be swanning off somewhere exotic!

- Baby is happy. Their natural need to be close to you is met and happy baby = happy Mama
- You are hands-free. Life doesn’t have to stop because baby needs a cuddle (this is especially meaningful when you have more than one child!)
- Baby can sleep anywhere or on anyone in the right carrier
- Perfect for ‘the witching hour’
- Breastfeeding is easy and it’s private
- Freedom to go wherever you wish - you won’t be hindered by, or even need, a pram
- Great for colicky or reflux babies. Upright is a perfect position to keep nasty stomach acid down where it should be.
- Babywearing is a great way for Dads to bond with baby
- Perfect for travel - you might be allowed to take your pram to the Departure Gate but it's usually not allowed on the plane. Using a carrier means your hands are free to carry your hand luggage onto the plane - particularly valuable when travelling with little ones by yourself! Belly Beyond has a large range of carriers available so you are bound to find the perfect carrier for you. Don't forget many families have more than one carrier!

ERGObaby - the only Baby Carrier included in Parenting Mags Top 20 Baby Products of the last 20 years
The award winning ERGObaby carrier offers hands-free closeness like no other! Its revolutionary design means your comfort will not be compromised and baby's precious spine and hips are held in the anatomically correct carry position (unlike most front-packs!).
ERGObaby offers 3 carry positions – front, back, hip – that promote healthy spinal development for your child from birth to pre-school.
And, the ERGObaby was the ONLY baby carrier to be listed by Parenting Magazine as one of the ‘TOP 20 PRODUCTS over the Last 20 Years’ for its ergonomic design and amazing versatility.
We love our Ergos, use them almost every day and it's definitely a product we sell because we love it - not the other way around.

Note the monkey aden+anais zoo wrap used as a cover on the stroller!
Huge size makes them handy as wraps, stroller covers, play mats and mor and come in a pack of four, great for all year round.
Available at Belly Beyond
Belly Beyond make a conscious effort to be environmentally friendly in all aspects on our business, from using recycled paper packing fill and re-using boxes. We deliberately partner with like-minded businesses who take care to minimise their packaging and act in other environmentally aware ways.
One of the most amazing products we were recommended by our lovely Stewart Island member Paula, is the ECOtanka Stainless Steel Drink Bottle
Each year we are drinking 30 billion throw-away bottles of water worldwide!
That is 2.7 million tons of plastic!
Think “REFILL NOT LANDFILL!”
Available in four sizes.

Belly Beyond made the NZ Herald today (the country's biggest selling newspaper) in the Reality Check section of the Herald Homes.
The article details the start of Belly Beyond, the growth and progress and the juggle behind the scenes. We laughed at Heidi's hours back then - more like 150 hours a week now aye chick?
Nice shot of Finn in the Ergo Baby Carrier. Looking good Heidi!
And the Leather OiOi Bags are DELICIOUS. I know it sounds like a sales line, but we honestly have trouble keeping them on the shelves. The NZ distributor doesn't bring very many into the country at the time, and we have to order weeks out as their stock is almost always pre-sold. But we are getting the hang of it and 5 smart customers got their bags delivered last week!
We have a payment plan for Leather OiOi Bags so you can secure yours for only half the cost, with the balance payable just before we courier it out to you!
All OiOi Bags delivered FREE NZ Wide
New Release Tan Cow Hide Leather due May 09
