Bakers Delight Christmas Cake Craziness

Oooooo, Cake!  We got to try a Bakers Delights Christmas Cake today with Heidi demonstrating her fantastic leadership skills (above).

Christmas Cake can have pretty unfair reputation as the heavy, poor cousin to other more glamorous cakes, the like Chocolate or Carrot (best that's the first time anything Carrot would have been called glamorous!).

But.... the unanimous consensus from the Belly Beyond team after sampling the delights of said Christmas Cake was Y.U.M and absolutely perfect with a cup of tea.  

Nicely done to the team at Bakers Delight, we think this cake is guaranteed to please everyone this Christmas.

Holiday Travel Life Savers #1

We love travel, and have experienced our share of the challenges that arise when travelling with babies and young kids.  This Christmas we're putting together our travel tips and featuring the products that we couldn't do without when we're packing the families bags and heading away. 
Safe T Sleep - Bed in a Bag!
If you are going away anywhere for the holidays with your under 3's and you can't or don't want to take a Portacot, then it's definitely worth considering getting a Safe T Sleep.  The Travel Safe T Sleep (pictured above) in particular is our Holiday Travel Life Saver #1 because of the wide range of beds it can be used in.
  • cots/cribs, boat beds, caravan beds, motor home mattresses, standard single, king single, double, queen and king beds!

Original Safe T Sleep   
The Classic Safe T Sleep shouldn't be discounted though, as it fits in bassinet, hammocks,  aircraft-cradles, cot/crib and standard single mattress.

It's cheaper at $119.95 and a great choice if you don't need to use it on a bed bigger than a single.
Key benefits of the Original Safe T Sleep® Sleepwrap®:

1. Peace of mind and a better sleep
2. Comfortable, allows natural movements
3. Warm in winter, cool in summer
4. Helps keep face and head clear to comply with International safer sleeping guidelines
5. Helps prevent cot/crib and bed falls
6. Ideal for Reflux, GERD, colds, colic positioning
7. Helps prevent misshapen (flat) heads
8. A safer transition from bassinet or hammock to cot/crib and cot/crib to ‘big bed’
9. Great for travelling, visiting, holidaying and boating
10. Newborn to three years plus

New Zealand parents have voted SAFE T SLEEP the BEST safety product in the OHbaby! Awards.

Mumanu Pregnancy Pillow Giveaway


Find this Mumanu photo (above) on our Facebook page and send your answer to the question you'll see to  Competition closure has been extended to Friday 16th December! :)


Far more comfortable than a pillow between your knees, the Mumanu® [m'um-anooo] pregnancy pillow is a self-inflating pillow to use under your leg when pregnant or postnatal. Keeping you correctly aligned, preventing and relieving lower back and hip ache, you will feel so comfortable you'll want to use it long after your baby's born! By keeping your hip, knee and foot at the same height, the Mumanu® prevents you from twisting, giving you and your baby the maximum space to keep comfortable.

The Mumanu® was designed by a specialist in pregnancy massage and tested on over 1500 women. 96% of those surveyed found it more comfortable that what they had been using at home... so we know you'll love it too.


There are so many benefits of the Mumanu® pregnancy pillow.  We've listed the ones we've discovered so far but please feel free to let us know if you find more. We've also written a whole page of geeky stuff to help you understand why the pillow works so well for you during pregnancy (and also for everyone else using the pillow).
  •     Takes pressure off your bladder which means less getting up in the night - What a relief!
  •     Quickly eases hip and lower backache
  •     Keeps your spine and pelvis aligned when side-lying
  •     Keeps your hip joint at the correct and most comfortable angle
  •     Relaxes your buttock muscles
  •     Takes the pressure off BOTH legs
  •     Correctly supports your lower back, hips, knees and feet by preventing twisting of your joints
  •     Can be used safely for side-lying while breastfeeding and co-sleeping

So not just for pregnancy!

  •     Positioning keeps you cooler than normal pillows
  •     Easy to change sides during the night due to its light weight
  •     Easy to use for comfortable positioning during love making (since there’s no pillow between your legs)
  •     Because you will be so much more comfortable, you won't need to turn over so much during the night

  •     Can be used in front*, back* and side-lying positions
  •     Easy to store as it can be deflated
  •     Height adjustable for different people and different surfaces
  •     So anyone can use it!
  •     Solid support
  •     Easy to clean
  •     Comfortable and stylish fabric
  •     More hygienic than a normal pillow
  •     Easy to inflate/deflate
  •     Easy to travel with on holiday or to the hospital, so you can get comfy when lying on your side during labour
  •     Will not lose shape (re-inflate when air releases), so you can use it for your next pregnancy
  •     Non-Toxic
  •     2 year manufacturer’s warranty
  •     Very lightweight and compact
  •     Made from fleece TPU, a recyclable and biodegradable plastic

* We do not recommend lying on your front or back during pregnancy for the comfort and safety of you and your unborn baby.

The Mumanu is $89 and available for same-day dispatch (order before 2pm Mon-Fri) from Belly Beyond.

Impassioned plea from car theft victim

I spotted this car parked on a Kingsland side street the other day.  You cannot help but feel for the car owners, who've clearly been the victim of more than one break in and have resorted to this sad but humerous sign to send a message to the thieves. 

Here's hope the scumbag thieves actually know how to read!

Any car window repair companies out there that can help these guys out with a free/cheap replacement rear window?
