Children begin exploring with their hands from an early age, touching and feeling textures as well as putting many of these in their mouths!
From about six months of age, many parents begin introducing fluids other than breastmilk or suitable baby formula to their infant. Parents may offer their infant water to drink, in addition to full cream cow’s milk. Giving baby water encourages extra fluid intake, especially in warmer weather or in longer periods of air conditioning. Remember to offer extra breastfeeds or suitable drinks to keep baby hydrated during these times. (more…)
There is nothing more special than boarding a flight for a well-earned holiday to your favourite destination, hoping on a plane to fly home to visit family, or short flight to attend a special persons wedding. It’s even better when you can take your loved ones with you on these adventures.
Now, whilst travelling with children can be challenging, it can also be a breeze with a little planning before your flight. A checklist can be a lifesaver and relieve stress when it comes to packing for the family. Whether it be two people travelling or 6 people, you still need to remember the essentials. Some of those essentials for young children can be nappies, wipes, a change of clothes, some activities to keep them entertained, something for them to eat and of course water. (more…)
Making smart and good choices for our children is a topic that most parents feel passionate about. Parents strive every day to teach their child what is right and wrong, and want the best in life for each of them.
This is also true for making the right choices when it comes to your child’s health and nutrition. We want them to grown up healthy and happy and what we put into our bodies certainly influences this outcome. Healthy eating and being active all help to achieve the best our bodies can be. (more…)
So it’s summer here in Australia and that means holidays!
Many of us travel on long journeys in the car to get to our fantastic holiday destinations.
We spend hours packing, rearranging everything in the car, packing the kids toys, bikes, their favourite teddy, the porta-cot, a few snacks, and then finally everyone hops in the car ready to go. (more…)
With summer upon us, and the temperature gauge heating up all over the country, it’s important to remember to keep offering plenty of fluids to babies and infants as hydrating babies and children is vital to ensure their little bodies and all their organs are working at their best. (more…)

We appreciate all of the consumer feedback – however confronting – that we have received over the last few weeks. We will be taking all views into account as we further develop and improve our products.
For the past 12 years, Bebi has been dedicated to providing parents on the move with safe and convenient pasteurized water products. We are committed to working closely with customers, with health professionals and parents to modify and enhance our range.
If you have any further queries, or would like to provide us with specific feedback about our products please email us at email@example.com.
At Bebi, we are parents, friends, mums, dads, sisters, brothers and people that genuinely care.
We are a small Australian company dedicated to providing a range of feeding solutions for infants and parents on the go. The company was founded 12 years ago and along the journey we have personally spoken to many thousands of parents about our products.
The first concern many parents have is the pressure they feel to do the ‘right thing’ for their baby from both qualified professionals and well-meaning friends and family and people in the community. The second concern that we hear is the overall lack of quality information from any one source as there are so many different views on how parents should feed their infants.
The vast majority of the feedback we get is supportive and complementary about our product whether it be the Bebi infant suitable water or infant fruit drinks. Most people seem to understand that Bebi IS NOT promoting our products as substitutes for breast milk and that our products are recommended for infants over 6 months of age, a time when parents are often trying to introduce their child to new feeding experiences.
We at Bebi are firm supporters that breast is always best, however, we have identified a need in the community for the travelling parent, the feeding challenged infant or the constipated child that just needs to have more fluids, and we have selected the best available, organic ingredients to provide a high quality and innovative product for our customers.
Bebi also understands that many health professionals have a wide variety of issues concerning the welfare of infants, whether it is sugar intake, dental care, speech pathology, obesity or flow rate and teat shapes.
As a company Bebi has done twelve years of research in this area. We know that sometimes infants just need a drink. That’s why we made our infant suitable water and organic fruit drink range for infants over 6 months of age. Our fruit drink is low in sugar (less than 4% per 100ml) and all of the sugar comes naturally from the organic juice that we mix with treated filtered water which is pasteurized for even greater protection.
We have carefully considered all aspects of our packaging, which is fully recyclable and contains no BPA, Phylates, Nitrosamines or Siloxanes.
We think it is also worth pointing out that:
Ultimately we understand and respect that different people make different choices about their lives and about how they feed their infants. If you have any further queries, or would like to provide us with feedback about our products please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Bringing Bottled Water For An Infant Onto An Airplane: Our Story
When we made our flight reservations for our first holiday after having our daughter, all I was thinking about was how good it would be to get away for a few days. The closer the trip came, though, the more anxious I started getting. Would we be ‘those’ parents on the plane with the screaming, crying baby, Would her ears be okay with the change in pressure? Would we have to boil water for her bottles before we left, and then have to put dirty bottles in my nappy bag, I scoured Internet forums to see what other mums did when they travelled. I kept seeing that many mums use Bebi water for infant formula, so I decided to check it out. (more…)
Organic Infant Juice: How Bebi Made My Hectic Day A Little Easier
Before I had my baby, I thought my life as a stay at home mum would leave me with plenty of time to get my errands done. With visions of my curly-haired, happy toddler in my arms, we blissfully completed grocery shopping, doctor visits, and hair appointments. I’m sure you know by now, but the reality is that some days, it’s incredibly difficult to juggle productivity and a toddler all at once! One day last week, I managed to schedule myself with several errands for one afternoon. We were already running late for our first appointment, a check-up with our paediatrician. I quickly restocked my nappy bag and headed out the door. (more…)
Infant Water: Helping Busy Mums Make It Through Spring Allergy Season
I used to think there was nothing better than springtime in Australia — surfing, touring the wineries, enjoying the beauty of the vibrant wildflowers lining the streets. But after developing horrendous seasonal allergies as an adult, my love affair with spring sadly came to a screeching halt. The same picturesque foliage that once gave me such joy now brings me nothing but sneezing and itching! Factor in the responsibilities of being a working mum and spring is now a dreaded time of year in my home. (more…)
The Best Baby Formula Mixing Water For A Relaxing Family Dining Experience
There used to be a time when dining out at our favourite restaurant was as much a part of our weekly routine as taking out the garbage or going to the supermarket. The waiters knew us by name and week after week my husband and I would slide into the same booth, casually glance over the menu, and ultimately order our “usual.” Then our son came along and dining out became a luxury of the past. We tried to make it work, but soon learned that dining out with an infant is something akin to getting a root canal. Okay, perhaps that’s a little extreme, but it can be very unpleasant to say the least! (more…)
Purified Baby Drinking Water: Say Goodbye To Harmful Bacteria
Bacteria are an unavoidable part of our daily lives. Whether you’re shopping at the supermarket, driving in the car, or just hanging out at home, you will come into contact with countless varieties of bacteria each day — no matter how many antibacterial soaps and hand wipes you use! And when it comes infants, mums will do everything they can to protect their children from those pesky little micro-organisms. Frequent hand washing — check! Shopping buggy covers and incessant warnings to keep hands out of mouths — check and check! But there’s one area that often gets overlooked when it comes to safeguarding our babies against harmful bacteria — the water your baby is drinking. This includes the water you use to mix with your child’s baby formula. (more…)
Baby Travel Drinks: Making Air Travel Easier For Jet Set Mums and Tots
This week, a guest post from one of our Bebi Mum?s, Caroline in Sydney ‘Before I had my son, I travelled quite often on business; and after years of experience with overhead luggage bins, recycled air, and less than stellar travel companions, I felt confident that I could easily tackle my first venture on an aeroplane with my one-year-old son. Nothing could have been further from the truth! Let’s just say there was baby vomit flying in all directions, an ill-timed onslaught of dirty nappies, and loads of crying from the both of us. By the time it was over, I was convinced I would never set foot on an aeroplane again. I figured I could get used to the idea of being a hermit if it meant I could permanently avoid the nightmare of flying with a toddler. But one thing happened between then and now that convinced me to lift my ban on air travel — I discovered the Bebi® range of baby travel drinks. My son adores their organic infant juice and purified water. Plus, we use them all the time when we’re on the go at home, so I thought just maybe it might make a difference on our next airborne adventure. (more…)
The Best Baby Formula Mixing Water: A Working Mum’s Secret To A Lunchtime Picnic With Baby
Going back to work after I had my son was one of the hardest things I ever had to do — short of giving birth to him! For weeks after my return I would stare at his adorable little photo on my desk throughout the day, fighting back the tears. Everyone told me it would get better with time, and it has; but I still think about him often throughout the day and miss him terribly! His grandma (my dear Mum) even tried to surprise me once with a lunchtime picnic. While it was very thoughtful, without proper means of preparing his infant formula, we were left with a very hungry screaming baby and a stressed and disappointed mum — not exactly my idea of a fun, lunchtime getaway! They ended up leaving after a mere 15 minutes and I was even sadder than before they arrived. So we agreed to keep work and home separate by refraining from any more lunch dates until he was off the bottle. (more…)
Baby Drinking Water: Get Your Child Excited About Staying Hydrated
From the moment babies begin to crawl and take their first steps, they often have a fascination with water that parents find hard to resist. Kids just seem to love anything that has to do with water — swimming, playing in the sprinkler, going to the beach, and those playful bedtime bubble baths! From the first dip in a swimming pool to baby’s first bath in the big tub, those waterborne adventures definitely make for some unforgettable memories and adorable photos! But as much as most kids enjoy playing in the water, it can sometimes be another story when it comes to drinking water. While some infants and toddlers naturally enjoy drinking water, others may need a little extra nudge — and that’s okay! If you’re looking for new, creative ways to keep your child hydrated after a long afternoon of running and playing, Bebi baby drinking water and organic fruit juice drinks are a great option. (more…)
How Baby Juice Can Turn A Simple Day At The Park Into A Special Event
Routines are a great thing to have when you’re the mum of a young child — whether you have a typical order to your entire day or simply a bedtime ritual. Having a routine means that mums and babies know what to expect and can more easily prepare for the upcoming tasks of the day! Of course, there often comes a time when those everyday habits become slightly mundane and you’re just sort of going through the motions — even babies can get bored sometimes! That’s when it doesn’t hurt to add a little variety to spice things up a bit. For instance, if you typically take your baby to play at the park in the afternoon, why not choose a day to surprise your child with a special treat? Have snack time at the park with delicious Bebi organic baby juice drinks and infuse some excitement and anticipation into your day! (more…)

And whether or not they ever stand atop an Olympic podium, involving your child in activities that promote physical exercise is a great way to prepare them for what’s to come later in life.

Bebi offers a delicious range of organic infant juice that contains no added sugars, preservatives or artificial flavours and colours – an ideal beverage for little athletes on the go! (more…)
Babies Drinking Water: Learning About Safe And Convenient Drink Options
Being a new mum is tough! With a beautiful new baby that is depending on you for all of their needs, it only makes sense that you want to do everything just right. Many new mums drive themselves crazy with worry over every little detail (if you call the paediatrician’s office more often than your significant other, we’re talking to you) – and that’s okay! After all, you’re just trying to keep your infant safe and happy. Thankfully, as a mum, you will learn all the tips and tricks as you go along; and someday soon, it will all be second nature. (more…)
Convenient Water For Babies To Drink: A Simple Solution To Over Packing
Like many mums out there, I have a very real and problematic habit — over packing! Don’t get me wrong, this has been going on for years, long before I was a mum. Does three suitcases for a two-day weekend holiday sound familiar to anyone? However, having a baby has taken this problem to a whole new level. It doesn’t matter whether we’re taking a quick run down the road to the supermarket or an overnight stay at grandma’s house, I seem determined to pack the entire home along with us. I never realised the extent of my awful habit until one day when my 8-month old daughter and I were scheduled to meet a friend for a quick lunch date — and it was clear I needed an intervention of some sort. (more…)
Baby Drink: A Mum’s Solution To The Waiting Room Blues
Waiting rooms — just thinking about them makes me cringe! I have long been of the opinion that almost nothing good can possibly come of a room designed specifically for waiting. If they’re not brimming with screaming children, then they’re often filled with sneezing and sniffling adults — not exactly my idea of a good time. Factor in your own anxious (and possibly sick) child and a visit to the doctor’s office can leave you with a massive headache! (more…)
Organic Fruit Juice Drink: A Timesaving Solution For A Mum Of Two
If you thought you were busy with one child, just wait until that second baby comes along! Prepare for your world to be turned upside down, but in a good way of course. After all, who can resist those adorable newborn baby eyes? But now you have two precious little human beings demanding your time and unwavering attention — each with their own unique needs! This means two naptimes to schedule, two mouths to feed, and two distinct personalities to entertain. Grabbing an organic fruit juice drink for your little ones as you head out the door, or keeping a few nestled in your buggy is a timesaver that any mum of two can appreciate! Bebi infant fruit drinks are a great option for mums who are looking for a tasty, organic infant juice drink without any added preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. (more…)
Safe Baby Drink: A Mum’s Guide To Surviving A Day At The Museum!
As the wife of an art teacher, I’m no stranger to the local art museums — and neither is my 2-year old son! Art-related adventures have become such an integral part of our family dynamic that I can hardly imagine life without them. Of course, we quickly learned that what was previously a simple, easy-going trip to the museum, had now become a much more complicated affair with an infant in tow. We had a lot to learn, and we had to learn it fast! The questions were endless. Is it possible to safely prepare infant formula on the go? How can we find a safe baby drink to keep him happy and hydrated while taking in all those vibrant paintings and sculptures? In time, we solved both of those problems — thanks to a super convenient and safe infant drink made by Bebi (more on that later)! (more…)
Baby Formula In The Great Outdoors: A Mum’s Solution To Camping With Infants
As a family, we’ve always loved camping. Every year during the school holidays, we would pack our sleeping bags and tents and head for the great outdoors! Each adventure brought with it amazing experiences and unforgettable memories. So naturally, when I started a family of my own, I was determined to carry on the family tradition! After one failed attempt when my son was 6 months old, it looked as though our camping days would have to wait until he was off the bottle. Safely preparing and storing baby formula, while also keeping a curious infant from ingesting wild plants, was just far too difficult to manage. (more…)
