NBB question from Tammy: My husband and I started trying for a baby in November. I have been using Ovia app to track when I'm ovulating. I have been feeling off and having a number of symptoms that are early signs of pregnancy. I am due for my period next on the 6th of Dec. I have tried taking a preg test but it comes back negative. Has anyone got a negative tests this many days before their expected period and yet still ended up being pregnant that cycle? Thanks :) ... See moreSee less
Ali CampbellWhen I was pregnant with my first I knew I was pregnant but tests kept coming back negative until 5 days past my period was due.
Second time I had a little implantation bleeding and took a pregnancy test the next day and got a faint positive. Currently 28 weeks with my 2nd baby ðŸ˜†
Good luck just keep testing each day.1 day ago · 2
Gabrielle HillI was negetive and had light bleeding so assumed i wasnt until next period didnt show. I was pregnant the whole time but test said know until much later. When i wanted to be pregnant i thought i had all the symptoms but it was just all in my head, dont over think or over analyze how you feel. Look for missed period and go from there. Good luck and hope you get knocked up soon ðŸ˜Š1 day ago · 1
Leisa BucktonBest way i found was to track with ovulation tests every day. A calendar won't do anything for you if you ovulate outside what the estimated time frame is. Either that or just have sex every day or every second day. If it is meant to be it will happen and you can relax knowing you have done all you can. :) Enjoy the journey - it isn't just about the destination.1 day ago

I'm a first time mum to a 3 week old (almost 1 month) baby and I have been mixed feeding. But the last couple days he won't drink formula, but used to before. I'm giving him the SMA brand, is there anything I can do that can make him drink the formula as I don't think I have enough supply and have sore nipples.
Is there a particular brand of formula that women prefer??

NBB question from Janelle: Hi. My 11 week old is to big for his bassinet so we are transitioning to cot. His cot is in his room. We have been doing day sleeps there and he's ok with it.

Jodie RoganI was lucky that my bub was small so she lasted 6 months in her bassinet in my room but then went straight into her room with no probs, but i have friends who put them in their own room from birth.

Bree GilbertThe most important safety feature in a car seat for our child is one that is suitable for a low birth weight baby. Our miracle baby was born premature at 28 weeks. After 67 days between NICU and the Special Care Nursery being able to finally bring our little fighter safely home is our priority. The Britax Safe-n-Sound Unity is only car seat on the market to be designed and tested specifically for the traveling safety of premature and low birth weight babies just like our son.1 day ago · 1

For me the main selling point of britax asides their impeccable safety features is that they make extending rear facing easy and possible as well as comfortable. I know it's not for everyone and that's perfectly ok but after having been involved in an accident just recently that wasn't my fault but wrote my car off and seeing just how well protected my bub was it made me quite grateful that for us it will be possible. Thanks again Britax for protecting our little ones so well! â¤ï¸1 day ago · 1
Cassandra RyanThe best safety feature my child seat can have is to be the right restraint for my child that is installed correctly in the car. Also make sure the harness is adjusted properly. I also like my restraints to have a AHR so that thier head is never out of the shell :)1 day ago · 1
Cassie GelukFtm in may and ive done so much research on different capsules my favourite things about the britax ISOFIX are the easy to remove from car base to place on pram. The secure measures they have gone to to ensure the safety and reduced movabilty when strapped in to the car. Love the easy to clean fabric and the age ranges from new born to 12 months. I decided on this capsule for a few reasons the main reason is the trip to america not long after the birth to see me sister get married! And coz its easy for my mum to handle if/when she baby sits. So win or lose this is going to be my choice either way1 day ago
Jordie WebsterThe best safety feature in a car seat would definately have to be the impact resistance. There is no point having a car seat made of complete polystyrene and getting into an accident, and having the seat snap. Especially with newborns and infants. I believe car seats should be made of very strong material to avoid more injury. As well as that, breathable and washable fabric should be over the top to prevent overheating in the car on longer trips and warmer days.1 day ago
Ashlee CloseThe Britax Safe'n'sound Unity Isofix capsule is at the top of our list for baby capsules. The most important safety feature we seek (and what drew us most to the Britax Unity Isofix) was the compatibility and adaptability of the capsule for travelling in the car, pram and aircraft. The 'click and go' adapters are perfect for a seamless transition from car to pram. Our upcoming baby will be safe'n'sound, and as first-time parents, our peace of mind is ensured with Britax!1 day ago

Alexcis WeberI think that every aspect of a car seat for an infant or any child for that matter is of high importance.

My number one safety requirement would be the best properly fitted restraints so that baby is safe and secure in the car but also comfortable. Also the ability to go from car to pram without removing baby from the capsule is another requirement as there's no chance of injury when moving baby between modes of transport23 hours ago
Kimberley HoffensetzBeing in tropical North Queensland I think the most important safety feature here would have to be the fact that the car seat is breathable and has cool fabric.

NBB question from Sarah: I have a 9 week old baby that sleeps in her bassinet for naps and nighttime. Although I have to hold her for her to fall asleep.

Does anyone have any advice on what I can do? ... See moreSee less
Sarah Jane HamiltonHold her. Stop viewing normal newborn needs as a problem. It isn't.
Babies that tiny don't have any idea that they are a separate entity to you. She was a part of you the whole pregnancy, she thinks she is still part of you now. She needs your smell and touch to reassure her.
The fact she sleeps well in the bassinet is good, holding her isn't much for her to ask of you.

Channy DonnellyMy bub is 6 weeks old and she does this too. I've been told by many people that it's normal.

Christina WattI had this exact same problem.. I've found what works for my 11 week old is I put the ergo cocoon on my girl after her feed just before bed and she knows it's bed time and closes her eyes within minutes (but I can put her in the bassinet with her eyes open now and she eventually self settles) I also use the soundspa (white noise) and have the ocean music playing and I set the timer for 15 mins.

Chantell AdsheadMy bub just turned 12 weeks old and she still does this. We have a routine at night now where she goes to bed at 8pm and will usually sleep until 4am but I have to cuddle and pat her to sleep. I've started letting her stir when asleep and leaving her to self settle which works sometimes and sometimes doesn't. I know how tiring it feels when you need to continually assist them to get back to sleep. Try putting bub down when semi asleep and pat bubs bottom for a few minutes then move your hand away. This has been working for me to assist my bub to learn to self settle24 hours ago
Kezz Frost McMasterWe had a similar situation, and I bedshared often. I also switched from bassinet to cot, and that helped her settle back after a night feed. We are lucky we have room to have the cot in my room. My daughters didn't like being swaddled, preferred being tucked in with a blanket. That being said she won't fall asleep by herself, but will settle if she stirs during sleep now1 day ago
Desley BrownI was doing this with my baby (now 11 weeks) I just held her for all her naps. Just recently though I've wrapped her, put her down and used a dummy. She's now realised when I wrap her and put her down, she opens her mouth waiting for the dummy. But she now knows dummy means sleep and she goes to sleep. I was worried about a dummy addiction but I can't deny the fact that she sleeps so well with it.1 day ago · 1
Hayley BoltNo advice sorry but I'm in the same situation ! My little girl is 8 weeks old and she falls asleep while I'm holding her and then I put her down , not intentionally but she always falls asleep when someone is holding her .

I've just been trying to settle her in her bassinet if she wakes up . I'll sing to her and stroke her head and she has been going back to sleep a couple times now . This morning was the first time we put her down awake and she went to sleep on her own .1 day ago · 1

Alisa MartinThis is fine to do at 9 weeks old. Though, if you don't want to be doing this still at 12 months I would try to start settling her in the cot/ bass from 12 weeks of age. It only takes a week or so of persistent trying and she will start to learn, this way teaches your baby to self settle which is amazing because once your baby hits 4 months old she will start waking more during the night, which means you will be waking up more

Alicia CaravaggioYou could try wrapping the bubs in a wrap or blanket while you hold, then when bubs is asleep pop in bed. Might just need your smell to go to sleep. Mine was a bit like that1 day ago
Carly Lee-KingOMG my Bub now 6 months drove me nuts until she was 4 months old and then it was just like something clicked for her!

Aleesha BrazellMy baby is now 2 but as a newborn (4weeks old) I use to let her cry for 3 minutes, go pick her up settle put her back (while awake) wait 5 minutes if she was crying I'd go back and settle her again, then I'd wait 7 minutes.. after the 3rd day/night she stopped doing it and would self settle herself. Now at 2 she never carries on about going to bed and most nights asks to go to bed or puts herself to bed. Everyone handles things differently and will have an opinion but go with what you feel is best for your little one. I got told I was doing physiological damage to my daughter by allowing her to cry, but after the 3rd day I didn't need to pick her up and settle her and at the age of 2 either puts herself to bed or asks to go to bed. All the best and Good luck.. ðŸ˜Š1 day ago · 1
Ellen WikblomHonestly with my first i held him so much. And im so glad i did! Yes he may have been a bit harder to get to sleep and may have always expected to be picked up when he cried or woke up. But you know what, hes now two and sleeps through the night and isnt my little baby anymore!
And now i have a 3 month old and he has slept 8-12 hrs a night since birth and i dont need to pick him up when he wakes up or cries. Most times he soothes and settles himself back to sleep or just lays there awake until he goes back to sleep. And honestly i miss having a needy baby! Let them be babies. You will find what works for you and your baby in time. But while they are young just love them because time goes by ever so fast :(22 hours ago
Sarah PyeI breastfed my baby to sleep until he was 14 months old, for naps, for bed times. Every sleep- boob.
Once he weaned, I've been rocking him, singing to him, holding him, patting him, anything I can do to keep him happy to sleep. He is nearing 17months & no end in sight for doing this things, will not go to sleep in his cot.
Your little darling is still so little & young, hold her. It really is a beautiful thing.1 day ago
Melanie GrimbacherThis sounds completely normal, most babies crave being held at that age. You can introduce some self settling techniques later on. My daughter is 10 months old and still likes comfort and cuddles throughout the night. I've just learnt to go with it and time goes so fast (I know it doesn't feel like it at 9 weeks!) so I try to enjoy it and not get frustrated. ðŸ˜Š1 day ago · 1
Kerri SinglaIf you need/want to try something other than holding bubba, try wrapping/swaddling her. My girl is almost 5 months and sleeps pretty well and can self soothe but if she's being fussy I find that wrapping/swaddling definitely helps :)1 day ago

NBB Question from Eman: Hi all, I had my baby's 8 weeks check yesterday...her weight is 6.2kg, length 59cm and head circumference 42.9cm which is above average..the GP referred me to the specialist saying her head circumference is big (average is around 40cm for her age) I'm very worried...did anyone have a similar situation and it turn out to be fine? Thank you ... See moreSee less
Deborah ShelleyMy son was born with a brain condition called ventriculomegaly he has had a larger head size and has had his head size measured since birth his ventricles resolved at 6 months a old and he is 18 months old now. He has had no issues or delays due to his condition but he has always measured a larger head size at all his checks. My paediatrician also puts his head size down to genetics he measured both mine and my partners head sizes and he basically told us we have big heads too lol.2 days ago · 2
Jackie GardnerMy first bub was also referred to ped for big head, but nothing wrong. Always had a head size off the 'chart'. The ped told me that no issue if the growth is following it's own scale, i.e not suddenly getting big or small. Also keep in mind can be measured incorrectly. First gp measured head bigger than was. I can say not to worry, but easier said than done ðŸ˜Œ.2 days ago · 2

Lisa Marie SzczurowskiWith drs and pediatrician these days the general public know more than them. I found with my girl everything that i would see that was obviously abnormal they would say was normal. And things that i didnt even consider they would pipe up and say better check that out. My little girl at birth went through 2 major set of blood test cannula in both arms and heels slashed to get blood. Went through hell only for the results for their concerns to be normal. And then the most simple thing the answer to her pain and suffering my chiropractor diagnosed lip cheek and tounge tied all they had to do was a simple cut. And yhe top of top consultants couldnt even pick it up... until you get a proper diagnosis for something be a parent have concerns but dont go and over stress you only make bub tense as well.2 days ago
Alahna HancockMy son was born with a 40cm head and 4.2 kgs his head kept growing as he did and never had any issues, he's now 16 months and has caught up to his big head, I wouldn't stress too much as long as your bub is healthy and happy and growing well I'd say your doing a great job2 days ago

Samantha GibsonMy girl is off the chart in all measurements and always has been. She had a big spike too between 4 and 6 months but now follows her own curve.

Aleisha BrownAll babies are different but you do have a rather large bubs. My boy is almost 16 weeks and only weighs 6.3kgs. They will just be wanting to ensure nothing is seriously wrong e.g. fluid on the brain as they need to look out for this on babies with big heads. Sure everything is fine, as I said before, all babies are different and come in different shapes and sizes ðŸ˜Š2 days ago
Sam GeevesMy first Vbac bub was born with a 39cm head. He's just a big boy. He's always been off the charts for everything. His head is still enormous but he's growing into it. My side of the family all have big heads and my Dad has to buy extra big hats to fit him. Don't panic until you see someone xx2 days ago
Alison RowlandI'm sure there is nothing wrong. Some babies just have big heads :) At my daughter's 6 week checkup (so 2 weeks earlier than your daughter's checkup) she was 59cm tall and her head circumference was 40cm. But she's just a big baby. No one is worried and we figure she gets her big head from her Aunty and her Nanna. And her length from Daddy and Grandma.
Go see the pediatrician but please don't stress about it. The GP is just seeking the advice of someone with more specialty than themselves.
By the way, bear in mind those saying their sons' heads were bigger etc. - at this age boys measurements will always be higher than girls at the same age :)2 days ago

Stephanie D'UlisseIt took my son a good month. He would roll and then know that he wanted to sleep on his tummy but didn't know how. He is now a tummy/side/back sleeper just like an adult!

Chantel TaylorIt took my daughter around 4 nights of waking up when she rolled into her tummy. She now happily sleeps on her side and tummy. It's a natural progression.

Mel WilsonMy 4 month old rolls like it's an Olympic sport. And has done for weeks now. Some nights great others not. He is worse if he is over tired. The MW said that it would be like us when we're tired and can't sleep and we toss and turn. Babies are the same2 days ago
Alison RowlandMy daughter started rolling properly at 4 months to the day. She then started rolling in the cot about 2 days later. For her naps she often rolls to her tummy and then I just take 30 seconds to settle her. At night she sleeps on her back and will usually only roll when she wakes up (6am ish) - she was getting frustrated because she couldn't roll back from tummy to back but the last couple of days she has worked that out so she has no issues now and is exactly 4.5 months. So it's taken her 2 weeks and a couple of days to work it all out.2 days ago

Kerri TurnerI had a low lying placenta, it was close at the 1 scan, the next scan it had moved closer and by 32 weeks was completely covering (grade 4). I had some bleeding just after that but was allowed home on close supervision and delivered by planned csection at 37 weeks.2 days ago
Anne-Marie MarskellYep I did. Now 31 weeks pregnant and has moved far enough away from cervix for natural delivery instead of c section.
They said 99% of the time it moves as baby gets bigger everything moves etc. I wouldn't stress!! Worst case you will have a booked c section instead of natural which is out of your control.... no point stressing yourself about it.2 days ago
Tash TopoljskiI currently have a low lying placenta, was shown on the 19weeks scan, but I wasn't aware until I went into hospital at 28weeks due to bleeding, did an ultrasound in hospital and indicated the placenta was 1-2cm away from cervix. Went for another ultrasound last week at 31weeks, and the lady said its moved a little but not enough. I have another booked in at 34weeks.

Sari JohnstonHad the same this pregnancy, was covering early and at 19 weeks, it is now out of the way (they rescanned at 32 weeks).

Fiona WilsonBabies become way more efficient with feeding, you may not have a supply issue at all. As long as she is happy, weeing and pooing and growing. Dont stress.

Chantalle HowarthMy daughter same age has lost a lot of interest in the boob it is just a leap they go through but do make sure she is getting enough milk during the day and night I ended up giving formula because she was just way too fussy on the boob so I formula feed a few times a day and than I breastfeed at night and in the morning. Works great for Bub and myself.2 days ago
Niki MirkinSuggestions that have worked for me was to have a big bowl of oats in the afternoon, lots of water and offer your boob often during awake time. I've also slowly learnt sometimes it takes a few days for your body to catchup if your babe is on a growth leap so try not stress - if your baby's weight is ok then all well & good, your body knows what to do :)2 days ago · 2
Channy DonnellyI'm trying to get my supply back up right now. I had mastitis which made my supply drop quite a bit. I'm pumping after every day time feed and some night feeds.
I've made some lactation brownies and got some boobie bikkies. They're really good for getting your supply up.
I also recently bought a breastfeeding necklace which is supposed to help Bub keep interest while feeding.2 days ago

Kathryn ThuroczyJust because you dont feel as full doesnt mean your supply is low. Bubs satisfaction and if they cry after a feed or constantly want to feed then its possibly low supply. Better to speak to a lactaction consultant. Or if you think its low supply try fenergreek or lactaction cookies to hoost supply. Consist times of feed maintains supply ie every 3 to 4 hrs2 days ago

Julia HeffernanOften mums think their supply is dropping but it's really not. If you're noticing that you're breasts feel softer that's normal. It means your milk supply has adjusted to your babies needs. It's also quite normal for babies to be unsettled and start to cluster feed. Remember that how much you express is no measure of your milk supply. If baby has lots of wet nappies and is putting on weight, your supply is fine.2 days ago · 5

***2nd Day Of Christmas Giveaway*** Our friends at Baby U are giving you the chance to win 1 of 5 fabulous Goats Milk Skincare and baby change packs! To enter comment below, like and share this post - Tell us what would make life easier when changing bubs out and about?
Kimmi MitchellIt would make life easy if more places had parents rooms. Also one place I went to only had a change table in the women's toilets. Should be one in the men's too. What about dads who need to change their baby? Also parents rooms need aircon. It's so hot in there! Also very smelly so they should empty the nappy bins more than they do. Would make my life easier â˜ºï¸2 days ago · 5
Katrina TewesThis would be a fantastic prize to win ðŸ˜Š I think it would make it easier if parents rooms/ disabled toilets had those vending machines for items you sometimes forget to restock in your nappy bag like: nappies, wipes, creams or breast feeding pads. Or another thing if they provided some sort of sanitising wipes/spray so you could wipe down change table before and after use.2 days ago · 5
Amanda NeumannHaving alot more parent rooms throughout the shopping centres so that you can go to anyone instead of having to find that 1 change room especially if its all the way down the other end of the mall when baby has done an explosion and your in a hurry haha. And having disposal changing mats so that if they wee or no2 on the change mat you dont have to wash in then have to put it back in the nappy bag you can just throw it out, thats why I love babyU products cause you have awesone ones. And I use all these products as it doesn't give miss 8months a rash when bathing and moisturizing ect â¤.
Thanks for the chance to win.2 days ago
Vee CroserI would love to see a product like a sanitizing sponge. Something you can get out of a packet and wipe down an area before putting your change mat down. Also a skin moisturizing 'wipe' for baby. Sometimes I'm traveling light and don't want to lug around a tub of moisturizer. My bubba has very dry skin.
Also, I'd like to say that I really love your products, especially the change mats. They are a great size and thickness.2 days ago
Adelle Jamie MillsHaving a pack that I can put nappies,wipes and a change mat in that is easy to open and close one handed and easy to get things in and out of. There are alot on the market but none are easy to get things out of or they don't hold enough stuff.
Oh and a extra arm would be really handy ðŸ˜œ lol
I would love to try this pack as my daughter has very sensitive skin and there are not many products that don't irritate her skin, I have found other goats milk products to be really great with her and my fussy sensitive skin and with another daughter due in January finding a good safe products that don't break the bank and that won't bother my girls sensitive skin would be a huge stress off of my mind2 days ago
Kami SullivanClean change rooms with liners for the change tables. Change tables that were long enough so my son's legs didn't hang off the edge and as always, making sure you remembered nappies and wipes (which I recently forgot... not good btw).2 days ago
Solange Harb NahlousChanging babies would be easier if there were more parents rooms that were kept tidy but also stocked with things like wipes and barrier creams (even if it's just the little sample sizes. I know it's probably likely some people would make off with them but Castle Towers and Stocklands in Wetherill Park have wonderful parents rooms. Also it wouldn't hurt to have comfy lounges in the BF rooms ðŸ˜‰2 days ago
Michelle FabrisIt would be so much easier if there were more parent rooms in shopping centres and public toilet blocks. Even change tables in female and male toilets. That being said sometimes they are so dirty that you don't want to change your child on them anyway.
Also if you're to dream big, then a nappy that self wipes a dirty bottom or makes sure there are no explosions to deal with in public! ðŸ˜ðŸ˜ðŸ˜›2 days ago
Bev Rube TalbotThree hands and a baby that stays still would make life easier! Haha but I think some sort of nappy bag dispenser would be good. Mine are always a nightmare trying to get one out with one hand then 10 come out at once!
Having nappy bag dispensers and change table disposable covers would be great in parents rooms.2 days ago
Carissa EllisA changing area in every block of toilets, everywhere would be a start! I've had to change my daughter on a bench seat in a cafe/restaurant, right next to diners and the kitchen once (and that's where the staff directed me)!
Toilets large enough for the pram in the parents room would be the one thing that would make my life easier when changing bub though - I've been to a few places that have a changing room, but if you need to use the bathroom yourself with pram in tow, you need to use the disabled toilet!2 days ago
Belinda MoxeyI was once directed to a mens room to change my baby girl when at a cafe. Apparently the Mens room was larger - however neither set of toilets had a change room or anything adequate other than a place to wash your hands. More parents rooms even if they are public rooms would be great2 days ago
Kasey PetersonMachines that dispense things you need like nappies, little things of bum cream and wipes. Better parents rooms too, though the one near me is great- they have wipe warmers with wipes and great rooms for feeding ðŸ˜Š they need more like that everywhere!2 days ago
Natarsha KennyI think that having more user friendly, clean and well stocked (in case you forgot something) parents rooms would make life easier when shopping in centres.
My favourite item is the disposable change mats because some places just aren't clean and no one wants to change their baby on nasty surfaces.2 days ago
Courtney Rieck100% agree that more change areas would be amazing.
I'm blessed to have great parents room in my local area. Some but not all have folks of disposable change mats which are fantastic as that means I get more use out of my bought mats and they have huge drawers owner each change may that is a bin. It's great that they are out of the way and hygienic so little hands don't touch them.2 days ago
Ashleigh OkeGood baby wipes that don't brake up and disposable change matts would make my life easier when out and about.. My Bub is two weeks old and is known to do a poo explosion when we go out.. Usually this goes all over the change matt causing a lot of extra cleaning and mess.. Disposable mats would come in handy in these instances along with the nappy bags to mask the smell2 days ago
Beck RainbowA little store in the parents room cause we all had that moment when you run out of wipes or when you pack nappies but you go through more than you think. Now that would make change times easier ðŸ‘ŒðŸ˜‰2 days ago · 1
Alyssa ShaeIt would make life so much easier as not many places have change rooms for parents and if not I know all I can do is take out a change mat and I can change bubs wherever! Even in an important meeting! I also think it gets to hot in the room and I find I suffocate in there and in the room it's the elderly using the room and it smells! Only if they had smelly senses2 days ago
Chantalle HowarthWhen changing a baby when your out and about defiantly a pram that lays down flat and makes life that much easier especially how there aren't parents rooms everywhere we go. So changing your baby in a pram that lays down flat so you just have to lay down a disposable change mat and easily done :)2 days ago
Emily RoebuckI agree with most people there needs to be more parents room most place only have a changr table in ladies bathroom, ive been to places where ive had to change my daughters nappy on my back car seat or on a table not ideal but neither is leaving her with a dirty poopy nappy i already use goat soap for bath times so to win the change mats would be handy as ive never actually seen them in stores before i get the brand from big w2 days ago
Kimberly TealeMore clean, practical and safe places to change baby.
I was in one the other day where the light was on a timer. I was in there too long and it went out mud change.
Went pitch black. I had to grab little one mid change and walk around to activate the light again. Wasn't very fun and was lucky I had cleaned the explosion already2 days ago
Amy WilliamsWhat a great prize! Definitely more parents rooms, especially in smaller towns that sometimes don't have one and a quite area for feeding bub! Disposable change mats would also make for a quicker change and easier to clean up messy poos while out and about ðŸ˜Š2 days ago
Tanika MichelleParents rooms with vending machines like in women's toilets, with wipes, sanitiser,throw away change mats and creams etc. !
Would make it a more pleasant experience, when sometimes you forget certain things and sometimes parents rooms can be unclean2 days ago
Kate JacklinParent rooms!! It's super hard trying to get a pram into a disabled toilet which is the only place you can fond the change tables most of the time. My goodness, more parenting rooms would be a dream! We all get public men/woman toilets, babies should have their own area too!2 days ago
Amanda Lee McJust saying i love your products used quiet a few and nothing made my bubbas skin feel so good, and they smell good aswell :)
I think it would make it easier if they had bigger parents rooms, and more inviting for the men aswell. And if they have feeding / + changing section that are more comfortable. And definitely disposable bins that are changed frequently, and hand sanitizer been a must!2 days ago
Sarah RichardsonIm a first time mum and i have noticed theres not many mum rooms for bubbas to feed or change.. and if there is its always so packed with other mums they need to be a bit more bigger and mum friendly. Also pram parking seems to be miles away from the shops why? It doesnt make sense why mums have to walk a mile to get to the shops compared to not having a pram park2 days ago
Elizabeth ShiltonBigger or more parents rooms, sanitizer available to clean the change tables. The rooms a bit larger too would help when there is multiple people in there with bubs. Maybe a vending type machine with things needed for bubs in there if you run out and dont have the time to duck up to woolies or coles.2 days ago
Brooke DaviesThere is a lack of parent rooms in places and some are not very clean or cleaned on a regular basis. Went out for dinner one night and had to change my daughter, went to the change rooms, but there was no place to change her. Was not very happy, ended up changing her on a couch in the bar area.2 days ago
Larisa KennyPublic change tables/rooms are always disgusting. I have yet to see a clean one so I avoid them. I keep a stash of disposable change mats, wipes, nappies, nappy bags, toy to distract bub and hand sanitizer in my car and just change in the boot space of our people mover. Flat, clean surface and so much easier than hunting for a change room ðŸ‘Œ2 days ago
Nikita GuestLife would be easier when changing baby out and about if my 8 month old would lie still instead of trying to see what's behind her kicking legs and rolling around ðŸ˜‚ - not to mention accessible, clean facilities that allow for privacy ðŸ˜€2 days ago
Lani HarrisIf every place you went to had easy accessible parents room with quality changing facilities. And if all parent rooms had the nappy bags, wipes etc incase you forgot yours. Maybe like a nappy vending machine loll. Can only wish2 days ago
Jodi BussellA discreet caddy on the pram that flips open to have everything I need in small quantities ready to go. I hate fishing around my nappy bag in a rush. It would also be great when mum takes my baby for a walk in the afternoons. Also who was the genius that designed these new benches everywhere with the dips to lay your baby in for changing? If there was a mid change poo distaster? Accidents happen and I'd rather be by baby's side, not path when they happen ðŸ˜‚2 days ago
Alison IngramWhat would make changing bub easier when out & about - wipes that don't dry out, an easier way to get nappy bags out of the packet & travel size baby care products (e.g. nappy rash cream). Thanks for the chance to win ðŸ˜Š2 days ago
Jess GuthrieHaving the disposable change mats would make it a lot easier to change Bub out and about and more parent friendly areas in shopping centres. Having wipes and nappies on hand in these rooms would also be great and babies having there own clean areas/rooms outside a ladies toilet would be a lot cleaner and easier for dads to use as well..
Such a great prize - having natural products is totally awesome ..2 days ago
Kaylee SmithOooo my FAVE products!!!
It would make it easier if places had more parents rooms, that mums and DADS can go into, dad can't change Bub in the women's toilets (if the women's happens to even have a change table nowadays)2 days ago
Sarah ShelleyDefinitely your wonderful disposable change mats. It doesn't matter as long as I have one of them I can do a bottom change anywhere. Car, pram, parents room. I have used them with my first and continue to use them with my second. So practical and hygienic.2 days ago
Manda FechlieIt would make life so much easier if there were more accessible facilities catering to mums AND dads which were actually cleaned frequently.. nothing worse than an unhygienic baby change room when it's the only one for miles!!!2 days ago
Bridget Aukaha-LarsenHaving more room in all baby rooms - not tiny toilet cubicles with a fold away change table and no room for your pram! Babies might be little but with all the things you need to take with them they take up a lot of space!2 days ago
Yvette WilkinsonIt has been 9yrs since I have had to do it and I'm about to need to so stay tuned and I will let you know!!! Lol I'm sure all these new flash products listed will make my revamped mumma life easier though :-) arggggg help!2 days ago
Brooke HallDefinitely more accessible parents rooms In shopping centres :) & also be great if they supplied the disposable change table covers save us mums carting them around in our nappy bags ðŸ‘¶ðŸ¼ðŸ™Œ2 days ago
Meg MarieA Nanny service in the change/parent rooms ðŸ˜‰ why stop at installing equipment or creating space when we could go all out and just set up services that give us Mummys a break for 5 mins - have a Nanny change baby and then hand them back. Haha that would certainly make it easier!2 days ago
Tiana Cosgrovewould make it easier if there was more parents rooms for both mums and dads to use comfortably ðŸ’™ but also to have rolls of change mat paper is also very helpful i dony always remember to pack a new mat2 days ago
Tess Graham-ChubbDisposable change mats as the nappy wallets can get pricey for a good quality one plus it's convenient to just throw out the change mat should it become a disaster zone rather than having to take it with you. The scented nappy disposal bags are handy for that reason as well should a bin not be immediately available.2 days ago
Samantha GrahamMore change tables/parents rooms in restaurants and cafes, instead of just an old change table popped into the disability cubicle. I always feel bad taking a while in there in case someone else is waiting to use it. ðŸ˜‹2 days ago
Jess EvansIt would make life easier if I could use wipes on my Bub but she has reactions to each brand I have tried, would love to try baby U to see if they are better for her skin and the goats milk skincare sounds amazing!2 days ago
Monika KortaDefinitely more parents rooms. I live in a small town and there is a very noticeable lack of them. Vending machines full of baby products would be awesome too, for those times where you run out of the house forgetting to top up your nappy bag. :/2 days ago
Rachel PresttI love this stuff!!!! All smells amazing. We use it every night after bubs has a bath. More places need to have parents rooms not just shopping centers. Very limited to where you can breastfeed and change baby.2 days ago
Natalie GodfreyMore parent rooms available would be great. I always feel horrible when there is no parent room and I have to use the accessible toilets to change my baby that I am taking up the room from someone who really needs it. I know they are accessible for both babies and people with needs but I feel that I'm taking it away from them.2 days ago
Kaitlin GibbonsBigger parent rooms
Some I can't even get my pram into, also a vending machine for mum and Bub
Water bottles and nappies and wipes I know Iv gone out a couple of times and forgot to check and had to buy a whole new packet
