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…)
“The hydration needs of children are not that different to those of adults. However, infants and children are more susceptible to dehydration than adults. it is important to remember that:

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…)
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…)
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.

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?

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.

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.

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…)

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.

Infant Water: What You May Not Know About Preparing Formula
I’m a relatively new mum, as I’m sure many of you can relate to. And while I know that breastfeeding is best for my baby, for us, it simply wasn’t an option. Once I got through the initial sleep deprivation weeks (which I don’t really remember!) we got into a pretty good routine, and I started feeling comfortable taking my baby out and about. My confidence has really grown, and I feel well informed to handle almost any baby-related task that comes up at this point. (more…)
This week our guest blogger Karen talks about her families recent experience with the Bebi water:
“It was one of those Saturdays. Sun shining, nothing on the calendar except the odd grandparent, and the overwhelming desire to eat some delicious food. What better way to combine all these assets than by having a picnic in the park? So it was a quick jaunt to the shops to get the customary pies, strawberries, champagne and Bebi Organic Water, then pack up the kids with all their necessities, fill the hamper and get everyone out the front door.

Ready To Drink Baby Water Helps Mums Be Confident About Safe Formula Preparation
When mums choose formula for their baby’s nutritional needs, convenience is great, but even more important is safety! That’s why even though taking the time to sterilise the bottles, the teat, and especially the water itself isn’t a chore to mums, it’s a necessity! What many mums may not be aware of, however, is that boiled water must cool completely before being mixed with formula powder. Not only does it take longer to wait for the cooling to complete, but if mums mix formula with uncooled water, many of the formula’s essential minerals and vitamins are denatured. What mum wouldn’t be disappointed that the nutritional value of formula can be so easily compromised? (more…)

If my toddler isn’t serenading me with ear-shattering screams or tearing holes in my panty hose, then it’s likely that some other mishap is about to occur. (more…)
Can Babies Drink Water? The Top Concerns Of A New Mum
