So who is Lulla – The Lulla Doll

The beauty of sleep.... We love it, we embrace it, we cherish it, we welcome it.... and sometimes it can be harder as a parent to have enough of it... The feelings are also felt by our little ones, not enough quality sleep can have a number of effects on their little world. The Lulla Doll has certainly taken New Zealand by storm, and my little home town of Queenstown to. We have had sound asleep babies on the 1st night and  babies that are learning to bound with Lulla through touch, smell and sound. A beautiful journey to watch as Lulla is accepted into many families and provides a peaceful approach to sleep. Lulla was designed in Iceland after many years. Playing a real heartbeat and breathing continuously for 8 hours,  scientific research showed how closeness improves sleep, well being and safety. This unique research (patent pending design) was inspired by kangaroo care, the effects of heartbeat and breathing sounds, and the effects that smell, sight and touch have on babies and small children. The core colour design for Lulla was to make Lulla unisex and unirace allowing babies to appreciate the kindness of a human like face. Hypoallergenic, the outer layer is made from soft natural cotton with a ultra fine microfibre filling, allowing the absorption of smells from a parent, offering baby a good sense of security. Lulla plays a real-life recording of the breathing and heartbeat of a mother at rest. Her name is Gudrun, a mother of four and a Kundalini yoga teacher. Securing Lulla to your babies bed or allowing them to cuddle will offer the beginnings of a new chapter to sleeping soundly. Lulla Doll, awaits a new embrace....

Spring is in – but don’t rush to Spring out

We know from great documented information and the NEW ZEALAND LAW that : "All children aged under 7 years must be in a car seat that’s appropriate for their age and size. They must not travel in the vehicle if you can't put them in an approved child restraint. This provides the best protection in a car crash, because the vehicle safety belt on its own doesn’t protect a small child. Your child may move to a booster seat before they turn 7. Keep using a booster seat to keep them safe. It’s the best protection for a child until they are big enough for the vehicle’s safety belt to fit correctly." Plunket NZ It's Spring time and another baby boom is upon us. September, in fact the 30th of September is proven to be the most popular birthday in New Zealand, with a 13 day gap from 19th September to the 1st of October being the second most popular. Stats NZ Car Seat/Restraint selection is crucial to the safety of your infant, but some of us are not fully aware that moving your child out of their car seat or booster to early can also be a safety concern. The following web link will provide you with some great information on when and why to move your child from Car Seat to Booster. Child Restraint NZ BUT, did you know that moving your child out of his/hers Booster Seat just because they turned 7 is not the best way to celebrate being a big kid. Car seat belts are designed for adults, and although the laws for Booster Seat ages are different through out the world, we believe at All For Kids that it [...]
