new gifts sets coming this week to bits & bobs 4 bubs

Finally I’m getting somewhere with my new gift sets.  Its been a bit of a process with a few interruptions and allowing time for some lovely ladies to help me out and test a few products, but I’m really happy with what I have come up with.  I have a few different sets, all come with a bib & burp cloth and a set of nursing pads for mum but I also have a few that have scratch mittens and crochet beanie & booties set.

I have also been working on a Christmas gift set as well that comes with a bib & burp cloth and a little Christmas stocking.  All I have left to do now is the wrapping.  This has been one of the reasons for the delay as I workout how I would like to present my items.  I have looked at boxes and hamper baskets but have finally decided on something a little bit cute and that is reusable.  So Stay tuned!!!!!

Tester

Hello lovely’s so sorry for the delay, I have sent messages via Facebook to the ladies chosen to test my nursing/breastfeeding pads but totally forgot that I had not posted here on my blog.

But as there were not many entries what I thought I would do first is wait to hear back from them to make sure that they would still like to do so for me as they may not wish to have there names appear on the blog.

Hello my lovely’s, I am looking for 4 lovely ladies who breastfeed to test my new reusable breastfeeding/nursing pads.  You will receive 1 set of pads free (standard post) and all I need from you is constructive feedback.

The pads have 3 layers, the first being microfleece (used in modern cloth nappies) that is like a sponge and locks the breast milk away from the skin and is lovely and soft. The second layer is a bamboo jersey that is a natural absorbent fabric.   The third layer is a cotton padding and the last a lovely pattern/print cotton fabric.

So what do you need to do to be one of my lovely testers, well just leave a comment below and next Friday I will pick 4 lovely ladies using Random.org. Once announced on the blog  I will then need you to get in contact via email at  info.bitsandbobs@gmail.com with your postal address.

Know any other breast feeding mum’s, well make sure you let them know so that they can be in it to win a chance to.  Sorry only open to Australian residence at this time.
