Top five posts in October


Readers were on the look out for top tips in October and there were plenty to be found at Babyology.

New parents wanting the lowdown on getting out and about with ease made our feature on what to pack in your nappy bag the most popular post for October – I think we all agreed that it’s better to have all the bases covered than being caught short! Of course, you need a terrific bag with lots of pockets and compartments to pack all the essentials that we suggested – look no further than our previous posts about nappy bags to find your perfect style.


With summer on the way it’s time to cast aside the thick blankets and toasty sleeping bags for lighter options. Our round-up of summer sleeping bags provided lots of suggestions and our readers added their favourites to the list – you’ll be spoiled for choice this summer!


Our Show Us Your Nursery posts are always popular and whether you’re starting from scratch with decorating or simply looking for some ideas to spruce up a child’s room, it seems we can’t resist having a peek at what other parents have done. This month, Holly’s pretty vintage bedroom won hearts. Featuring child-sized vintage cane furniture with a modern pop of colour, bright pom-pom trims and clever shelving, Holly’s room is pretty and fun.


I suspect expectant mums will be putting Topszy at the top of their Christmas list this year. Topszy is the ‘Swiss army knife’ of maternity products – it’s a maternity top and a nursing top that can be worn in multiple ways plus the Topszy doubles as a scarf, pram blanket or cover. And the colours! There are so many to choose from you may just need more than one Topszy.

Was it the cute animal shapes or the idea of a ‘buffet on the go’ that made our post about the new Boon Trunk and Cargo lunch boxes so popular? The Bento-style boxes are perfect for snacks and for kids who like to graze. The boxes have lots of separate compartments and a see-through lid so that you can see at a glance what’s on the menu – yum!

Katrina studied planning and design, did the hard yards working in a big office building and then traded it all in for a relaxing (!) life at home with four children. She now fills her time with writing, completing a degree in genetics and taxiing her children around Melbourne to their various sporting commitments (not necessarily in that order).
