RIGHT now I’m staring at a beautiful pile of perfectly ironed clothes. Oh, how I love my hubby. Next to that is a pile of socks – odd socks. Where their mates are, nobody knows. The worst offenders are Baby Holly’s toe covers, because they kick off her tiny feet so easily.
It’s this reason I was drawn to something called Sokshus. My wonderfully chic friend Al owns a little Tassie gem called Cadootje, which stocks these part-sock, part-shoes. Incredibly, Sokshus won’t slide off little tootsies.
The gorgeous gift store in Launceston (that’s in northern Tassie, for the uninitiated) had me all excited after Al sent me a brochure from one of her suppliers. Australian supplier Make My Day, which sells everything from kitchen gifts to items for the bar, has cute, stain resistant, silicone Baby Bibs. Why so excited about a bib? Because it’s dishwasher safe. Genius.
Another is their Bottle Warmer, which allows you to warm up bub’s bottle or food without electricity or the fuss of carrying around a heavy thermal flask. Phew. It even fits those wide-necked bottles. The warmer comes in a funky cowhide neoprene pouch for extra thermal protection and features a velcro closure for convenient adjustment.
If you’re in Tassie, make sure you drop in and say hi to Al at Cadootje, located at 27 David St, Newstead. If you can’t quite get there, make sure you visit her Facebook page. Also, check out the Make My Day blog.
