Our Story

Our Story

In 1998, Andy gave birth to her baby boy, Jayden. As much as he brightened her world, he also turned it upside down. Andy was a working mom during pregnancy and time to prepare for her new baby became “stolen moments”. She found that preparing was as overwhelming as it was exciting. Having a newborn baby is an incredible transition from person to parent. It is wonderful and rewarding, but, it is also difficult and exhausting.

She knew there had to be an easier way.

An easier way to find local and reliable information about the baby products available in the market, and a more convenient way to get whatever baby needed without having to leave work or home. To her surprise, there wasn’t a trusted source to help with this journey. 

So, she created it

We fill this gap, and we are your reliable and trusted source for product information, and for advice on how to prepare and what’s worth buying. We provide guidance throughout your shopping journey to ensure you have a hassle-free and enjoyable experience that also saves you loads of money & time. We want every parent to buy right, the first time.

Our Mission and Values

Our mission is to save you time and money so you have more to spend on what matters most. 


Pregnancy and parenthood are wonderful, and we want you to cherish every moment. We strive for a seamless, stress-free and enjoyable experience so you can focus on creating beautiful memories.


Each parent and each family is different. We all have unique needs, lifestyles and budgets. We don't believe that one-size-fits-all works. That's why we personalise your experience so that our guidance is practical and relevant for you.


There is so much information out there, it's difficult to find someone you can trust. We aim to be the source you can rely on. Our guidance is evidence and experience based, brought to you by experts and professionals in the field.

Our Team

Our family is so excited to be a part of your family’s journey.
