When it comes to items for my kids such as teethers, bibs and burp cloths I always prefer a more natural route. Don’t get me wrong, the commercial products are perfectly fine, however, with bibs and burp cloths often they are not very hardwearing, or they might look lovely but not be practical. Two of my kids suffer from eczema so I always try and stick to natural and where I can organic materials.
I also love homemade products. The love and care that goes into homemade products from small businesses you just don’t get in products purchased from department stores and I believe it makes the little bit extra you might spend completely worthwhile. Plus I like having something different to everyone else.
My Little Love Heart is a small business based in Perth, Australia who make a range of baby accessories I know you will love. The business is owned by Luisa Figueroa who started life in the fashion industry designing formal and wedding dresses. After studying Fashion Marketing in France Luisa moved to Perth, Australia to learn English and also study Interior Design. After giving birth to her daughter, Luisa found that the burp cloths and bibs on the market just weren’t cutting it, particularly as her baby had reflux. This is when Luisa decided to start making her own bibs and cloths and when My Little Love Heart started.
Luisa combines her love for fashion with the need to have quality baby accessories to design and make her own range of stylish yet functional accessories.
My Little Love Heart has evolved over time and now have a range of beautiful handmade baby bibs, hair accessories, burp cloths, teething rings and stock some lovely gift sets perfect for a new baby comprising of their own handmade products with other beautiful keepsakes.
The Bunny Teething Rings are my favourite, and I used this type of ring when my youngest was teething. Safety is the number 1 importance for My Little Love Heart, and these rings have been tested and passed Australian Standards. They are made from organic and natural materials with no chemicals or toxins. The ring is coated with a handmade certified organic beeswax blend that is made in Australia. I found these rings were perfect for baby to grip and they were very easy to clean.
Bandana bibs are also a favourite of mine especially when teething. They kept bubs’ clothes dry and baby comfortable and looked much more stylish than a conventional bib. My Little Love Heart‘s bibs are incredibly durable, the fabric is great quality, and the bibs are designed in such a way that they collect dribble without it seeping through to the back. They’re soft and comfortable as well so they’re not going to bother baby. My Little Love Heart also make standard baby bibs and large bibs for the really messy eaters!
Perfect for a baby shower gift are the keepsakes offered by My Little Love Heart. My favourite is the Delux Baby Gift Sets. These sets are gorgeous and include the most exceptional items to compliment the beautiful handmade My Little Love Heart accessories. This set comes complete with;
- Baby Record Book
- Natursutten Dummy (Safe, natural rubber orthodontic dummy soothers)
- Dummy Chain
- Bunny Teething Ring
- Burp Cloth
- Bandana Bib
- Greeting Card
All these items come beautifully gift wrapped, so all you have to do is write your best wishes in the provided card and hand it over to the lucky recipient.
Luisa from My Little Love Heart has been fantastic to deal with. Any questions are promptly answered, and postage was quick, especially given their location. Just one thing to keep in mind when ordering though, as the products are handmade Luisa’s team has to cut and sew the pieces. The turn around time for this is generally around five days, and the item will be dispatched when completed.
