The Comfort Mama – Carissa Heath #behindthelabel

One of my favourite things about being a mum/health blogger is that I get to collaborate and network with the most amazing people. I not only love the brands/businesses/products that I collaborate with but I also am lucky enough to gain friendships with many of the business owners.

I recently started chatting with the gorgeous Carissa Heath from @the_comfortmama and have I loved getting to know her a little more. I know you will love her to and gain inspiration from this amazing #girlboss so I asked her if she would be featured in my #behindthelabel feature.

I have lived in my Comfort Mama dresses from the moment I received them in the mail. I alternate between the stripes and the dusty pink look. You can wear these dresses to bed, around the house, to the shops and to school drop of and still look like your nailing the luxe comfortable mamma style. #winning

I style mine with Connies and a nappy bag for outings or slippers and a cup of tea for lounging. They have the press stud buttons for easy access breastfeeding and the material just moves with your bod.

Anyway enough from me raving about this label, here is #behindthelabel with Carrisa Heath from The Comfort Mama

Congratulations on your new business, The Comfort Mama – a modern lounge dress that provides mummas with the ultimate comfort and style. Could you please tell us a little more about what drove you to create the label? 

 Well there was a few different reasons but the main reason being…. My sister, who has two little humans of her own (one is 5 and the other 2 and a half) suffered terribly for a few years with post-natal depression and all the ugly bits that come alongside this. It was so terrible to watch her go through this and have absolutely no idea how to help her, I felt extremely helpless. So seeing this firsthand has made me extremely passionate about helping other Mums on their journey into motherhood. Don’t get me wrong, I love the tiny humans… but let’s be real, they don’t need much! A little food, unconditional love and a place to sleep. The Mamas are the ones that need the love and support to raise these babes!

Whilst I was pregnant last year (2016) with my first little one I searched high and low for comfortable clothing to wear after the birth (or even in hospital), during what I envisioned would be one of the most uncomfortable times I would ever go through. I figured that if I felt comfortable in what I was wearing that it might just help me feel a bit better about… well, everything!

When I couldn’t find anything available in Australia I knew this was my opportunity to create something for Mums. So I set out to design a comfortable nursing-friendly lounge/house dress that could be worn everyday at home, when visitors unexpectedly pop around… or even to the shops for that quick nappy run! To some it might just look like a simple dress but it has been designed with so much more meaning and purpose. I wanted to provide ladies something to wear, from pregnancy, labour, nursing and beyond (instead of the regular pj’s or oversized daggy house clothes) that would make them feel a little bit better about themselves and how they look.

Can you tell us a little more about the woman behind the label The Comfort Mama? 

My name is Carissa Heath and I guess you could call me The Comfort Mama! I became a Mum to my lovely little man in December 2016 and what a ride it has been so far!

My husband and I have been married for 4 years and together for 10. We are self-employed and have operated our own businesses for the past 6 years together (never work with your husband….trust me!!!!). We absolutely love running our businesses and working for ourselves and were lucky enough to sell one of our businesses in February last year up in Mackay, North Queensland. To say we were exhausted, tired and completely done was an understatement so the business sale could not have happened at a better time. We had worked ourselves silly and really lost each other in the process. About six weeks later, a trip to Bali plus a little reconnecting time and we had ourselves a lovely little surprise in the form of our son, Hendrix! So we packed up our life in Mackay and moved to the gorgeous Sunshine Coast (paradise on earth!). For the next few months we pretty much did a whole lot of nothing… and it was AMAZING! Just what the doctor ordered!

And along came our son 6 days before Christmas. Let me tell you, we got a whole lot more than we bargained for! We were never really completely into the whole ‘having kids’ thing. That might sound horrible but it was the truth. We loved working for ourselves and having the freedom to do what we wanted, when we wanted. Well…. weren’t we wrong. The day Hendrix was born our whole life changed. I changed. My husband completely changed into a person I never thought he would ever be – the most supportive, caring and considerate human when I really needed him the most. I remember sitting in my hospital bed two days after giving birth, crying on the phone to my sister about all the Mums out there that don’t have the support from their partner/family like I do ☹ it breaks my heart and makes me extremely grateful for my situation.

So it was at that point that I definitely knew I wanted to help Mums in some way. I wasn’t 100% sure how I would do it, but I knew that’s where my passion truly lies.

I read on your website that you donate $2 from every garment to cope.com, that is such a lovely idea to support mummas. Such a great corporation to support. Can you tell us a little more about The Centre For Perinatal Excellence and why you choose to support this charity? 

This makes my heart smile a lot! It may only be a small contribution at this stage, but I’m so happy that I can donate something to this amazing charity. I actually came across their page on Instagram and had been following them for a few months. I really resonated with their content and loved the information they were putting out there so thought no better fit when deciding on a charity to support.

The Centre For Perinatal Excellence (cope.org.au) provides a great resource for reducing the impacts of emotional and mental health problems in the pre and post natal periods.  They work tirelessly to raise awareness and understanding, breaking the stigma that prevents women from identifying and seeking help during pregnancy and that first year following birth.

4. Your garments are currently on pre order when is the release date? 

I have released stock of the Elle Rose Dusty Pink and the Sonny Grey/White Stripe which is extremely exciting!

I am using a small run manufacturer in Melbourne who handmakes each dress as to the delay on colours being released ☹ but she is working her butt off, trust me! The remainder of  colours will begin to arrive for purchase within the later half of August.

5. What is your favourite way to style your Comfort Mama dress? 

Give me my pair of white converse shoes, a dry-shampoo filled top knot in my hair + my chosen TCM dress (side knot is a must) and I am sorted!

My top 5 must haves for new mummas Feat. Organic Mums & Bubs.

I have been lucky enough to write a blog for one of my favourite Australian organic maternity and baby shops – Organic Mums and Bubs. The store is filled with absolutely divine 100% certified organic, eco friendly and ethical products which are suitable for pregnant and nursing mummas and their new bundle of joys.

Expecting a new baby can be lots of fun. Preparing and buying things for yourself and your little ones arrival is all part of the excitement of this new journey. There are so many great products to choose from on the market but at times can be quite overwhelming when deciding what you and bub require. Organic Mums and Bubs is one of my favourite online stores that caters for a wide range of all your mumma and bubba requirements, which is why I am putting together a blog post sharing with you the 5 products I love most from this amazing company.

I know we get super excited about spoiling Bub, but my first few must haves are just for mumma.

Comfortable Nursing Lounge Wear

The first few days depending on how you birth you could be in hospital. Followed by spending a lot of time at home getting to know your newborn. During this time just wanted to live in comfortable clothing. Little Winter Rose is now five weeks old and I still like to be comfortable to lounge around at home. If you choose to breastfeed to you will want comfortable clothes that you can nurse your newborn in. I really think that wearing comfy, soft clothing helped me to feel relaxed and comfortable in my own home and when heading to the shops.

I wear my Grace Bamboo Maternity Top and Essential Bamboo Maternity Pants together all the time around the house. The clothes are so comfy I even sleep in them and I can do my post natal yoga practice in this outfit too. Because it doesn’t look to pj like I can also wear out to the shops too and still feel good. The material of both the top and the pants feels great on my skin too, made from a mixture of organic cotton, bamboo viscose and a little spandex for stretch. I highly recommend this duo and packing it in your hospital bag if you are planning to have a overnight stay in hospital.

So comfy around the waistline and I love that the pants have a string to pull in as your postpartum stomach goes down.

Reusable Bamboo Nursing Pads and Wipes

Not only are the Milk Maid Mumma Nursing Pads kinder to the environment, I found they are so much more kinder to my breasts too than the disposable ones. They are made from bamboo and feel luxe against the nipples especially when my little Winter Rose is cluster feeding and my nipples feel grazed. The sit well in the bra and don’t scrunch up like the disposable ones do as the day goes on. I love seeing all the pretty prints on my washing line too. All nursing pad bundles come with a wet bag too, to keep the breast pads safe in the washing machine. Great for storing them in your nappy bag too.

The Milk Maid Mumma Reusable Wipes are also a great alternative to your everyday baby wipes we carry in our nappy bags. I have also found these wipe cloths great as a burping cloth alternative too. The wipes also come with a cute wet bag to store the wipes in.

Both of these Milk Maid Mumma products are kind to your wallet and are really reasonably priced, making them a perfect baby shower gift for any expecting mumma.

100% Organic Cotton/Bamboo clothing for your Newborn

Of course baby clothing is part of my list for new mummas as it’s so fun buying outfits for your new bundle of joy. I personally find it more fun than buying for myself these days. When your newborn arrives into the world their skin can be very sensitive. It’s great to purchase some clothing that is gentle and kind to their babies skin.

Organic Mums and Bubs provides a wide range of adorable organic baby clothes that are suitable for your newborn no matter what the occasion. Weather you just want to dress your bundle of joy up for visitors, a special occasion or just for them to relax at home in this boutique has you covered. Some of my personal favourites from the site is the Bubbazimbi range and My Lilly Ann hand painted clothing.

 

A comfort toy or blanket for your baby

It is up to you as a parent if you choose to use this method. I believe that giving my babies a comfort toy or blanket has really helped them to settle them to sleep no matter where they are put down to rest. A little tip though is to have a few comforters on the go. I always have one in the cot, one in the pram and one in the car. That way if one is misplaced there is always back up available.

I love Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Bunny Soft Toy and Natures Purest – Striped Knitted Baby Blanket.

Organic Skincare for Mother and Baby

As a mum I really want the best for my babies. I am amazed that so many baby skin care products are filled with nasty harmful chemicals and an ingredients list that goes on forever with words I cannot even say. I am a registered nurse and when studying anatomy and physiology I learnt that the skin is the largest organ in the body. It absorbs want we put on it so quickly into our bodies. Our new babies skin is so precious so especially in the little ones early days I think its important to be aware of what I use on their skin. So I keep my babies and my own skin products to a minimal or organic.

I love Aromababy Barrier Nappy Rash Cream Balm I have used this since Cruz was a newborn its such a great product. It also doubles as a great lip balm haha.

My Little Booky Wooky – Speech Pathology Shortlisted Book Of The Year 2016

When I was pregnant with Winter Rose I received a message from the gorgeous Bianca Ebeling telling me about the book she had created. It was called "Let's celebrate" by @mylittlebookywooky and it was designed to stimulate a newborns vision by using black and white images.

My eldest little boy Cruz is such a little book worm, we hang out at the library a few times a week and borrow new books out. He just loves them, especially the images. I usually change the story around too haha. So hearing about this book I was instantly interested in hearing more.

I received the book and flash cards and was so excited to use once my little one arrived. I placed the flash cards on the wall next to the change table and placed the book in the cot awaiting my babes arrival. Cruz was so in love with the flash cards. He chats to the animals and I tell him what they are. He thinks it's great. Plus it's a great distraction while trying to change my wriggling toddlers bottom. Haha!

Since Winter Rose's arrival we have been placing the book next to her. It's amazing to see how over the past 4 weeks she is really starting to focus on the images. In just a week she was able to lock her eyes on the book. Now week 4 and she is reaching out to the book. It blows my mind how interested in the book she is. During witching hour I often lay her on the bed on her side and she will just settle when I place the book next to her. She goes from crying to such a calm nature. Just wow!

The book will defiantly be something I will be buying for other mummas in the future for baby shower gifts or birth arrival gifts. I would also recommend this to other expecting and new mummas too.

I have asked Bianca a few questions below so that we can all find out a little more about her and her book. Thank you again Bianca.

Could you tell us a little bit about yourself Bianca? 

I am a mum of 2 little cheeky monkeys aged 3 and 1. My husband and I moved from Melbourne to Geelong 4 years ago for a more relaxed and affordable lifestyle and we haven't looked back. My background is in finance but my biggest sense of achievement comes from being creative. Developing my books has been extremely fulfilling. 

What drove you to create a book specifically for newborns? 

As part of my mother's group I attended a session with the local librarian who was explaining to us new mummies that we should be reading to our babies from the moment they are born and that the best books for 0-6 months are black and white books. I actually didn't read much to my son so I took her advice on board and found a black and white book and my son started reacting to it instantly. He was completely captivated by the images. It blew our minds. He had previously really struggled with tummy time and would cry so much and really didn't want to do it. I thought he would never achieve lift his head however with the black and white book in front of my him, he started really trying to lift his head to see the images and within less than a week he was holding up his head for short periods. There were many other benefits that we witnessed over the few weeks we had the book from the library and I just knew I had to get one for myself to have permanently. Unfortunately no bookshops or baby shops stocked such books. Hence I had this idea…

What is the idea behind the black and white illustrations?

When babies are born their eyesight is still developing and they find it hard to focus on the world around them. High contrast images are much easier for babies to see in their first few months and provide them with something simple and engaging to focus on, and in this focus or intense concentration they can allow their minds to rest. A baby cannot see pastel colours properly for several months after birth. It is recommended to surround a baby with as much black and white as possible in the early months for visual stimulation and development.

Now the book only has illustrations, no words. What is the reason behind this?

This is one of the best bits about the books. Anyone can pick up the book at tell a story about what they see on the page. In my first book there is a page with a hot air balloon and clouds. There are so many ways to approach this. You can simply tell your newborn baby what you see on the page. Or you can make up a story about a hot air balloon that flew away and went travelling around the world. Or perhaps you got engaged in a hot air balloon. Another story opportunity. Talk to your baby, read, make up stories. Let your baby hear your voice, a range of vocabulary. Also, every parent/caregiver will have a different story to tell based on what they see. The fact there are no words in the book means you aren't bound by the words and you can let your story telling imagination run wild 

How important is it to read to your child? 

Reading aloud with your child is so important. It stimulates their imagination and curiosity, it teaches them new vocabulary, it opens their eyes to new ideas. It helps develop their language and listening skills. Children who are read to at a young age do better in their schooling years. One of my favourite quotes that I believe hits the nail on the head is "reading to children, even before they can understand, teaches them to associate books with love and affection". I see this in my children. I remember when I had my daughter last year, I would have her snuggled into my arms and I would read her books throughout the day and it was my favourite activity with her. We promote the love of books with our children and set up a little reading nook in our house. Both my daughter and son spend a lot of time there each day looking at and playing with their books. They love bringing favourite books to my husband and I and sit with us and we read to them. My son is nearly 3 and I can see that a lot of his vocabulary that he is using is from the books we read and it excites me and makes me incredibly proud.

Top 10 Unisex Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Both my pregnancies, my husband and I have decided to not find out the sex of the baby. The first thing that comes to most people’s mind when we tell them is “how can you be organised for the baby” or “what can I buy you? There is hardly anything out there that’s unisex” well I disagree with them I think there is so much you can still get organised or buy someone. So I decided to blog about it haha.

It has made David and I save a bit of  money not buying the trend of pink or blue clothing or decor. But if you wish to be organised or gift someone something special before their birth of their child, then there is truly so many gorgeous unisex gift ideas that you can still shower a mumma (in some cases daddy too) with at their baby shower, or purchase for yourself  for your newborns arrival.

I have teamed up with Baby Luno to bring you my…

Top Ten Gift Ideas For A Unisex Baby Shower. 

Click on comment of each image to purchase the product.

 

A neutral onesie, because what new baby doesn’t look adorable in the neutrals of white, cream or grey? No matter what the sex. I think they look so cute too.

 A neutral cuddly companion teddy or animal for their newborn to snuggle up to. Doubles as a comforter at nap and bedtime.

A white bath towel, because who doesn’t love seeing a baby all wrapped up in a fresh white towel no matter what the gender, ekkk… oh my ovaries.

Some of your guests may like to put money together and buy something bigger for the mumma. A baby carrier can be used by either mummy or daddy to carry their newborn (up until the age of around 3 depending on the weight of the child) around when bubs just want to be close to their parents. Its also a great way for parents have their hands free when their little one just won’t settle or they need to get the shopping done.

A cute baby muslin swaddle, which is perfect to keep their little bub warm and comfortable when they first arrive. The great thing about a muslin swaddle is that it can be used as a blanket or a light pram cover (just ass some pram pegs).

Baby Swaddle Blanket – 10th Anniversary

A set of unisex bassinet or cot sheets, you never can have to many sets as the little bubba may have a few accidents haha, you will find yourself changing them very regularly.

Baby Bassinet Sheet Set – Wonderful Life

sleeping bag that doubles as a swaddle, great to keep the little new born warm and securely snug while they are sleeping. You can use the sleeping bag instead of  a blanket and bub is less likely to wriggle out like they can in a blanket or wrap.

Baby Sleeping Bag & Swaddle – ErgoCocoon TOG 1 Blush Leaf

Again a few of you might want to put in some money and get something special for mumma or the baby. A nappy bag s a great idea it will be something that mum uses all the time. Be mindful though that mum might have a particular style in mind. This was the style I feel in love with. Its perfect as it doubles as a handbag not just a nappy bag.

A set of Milestone Blocks is the perfect addition to the little ones nursery. Mummas can also take photo updates of their little one next to the block as a keep sake, perfect to watch them grow and look back on.

Last of all, if you really are unsure then you can always get the parents a gift card. That way they purchase something sweet for their newborn when they arrive.

e38bd83af578077b65a31424bd24d085.png
Baby Luno Gift card
 
Baby Luno have created a new tab on their website called the “gift registry” where the mumma can go on the website and click on what they need or would love. I thinks its a great idea so the mum can choose the nappy bag or a certain baby carrier or design for their little one that they had in mind. The gift registry can be either private or on public. So easy to create and set up. They have a FIND tab so guests and family can easily look up the mummas name to view the list.

Below is a copy of  a wish list I created at the beginning of my pregnancy. I wasn’t having a second baby shower but I used the gift registry as a list of what I needed to purchase. So easy.

Ava Lola Organics – The Pregnancy Box. 

I recently received a wonderful gift box from Ava Lola Orgnaics. To my surprise it wasn’t filled with gifts for the new baby, but gifts for me? I felt oh so special and I thought to myself it is just what a tired pregnant mumma needs – some mumma metime and pampering. 

A box filled with pampering goodies for a pregnant mumma.

Inside this box of goodies was some great organic skin care products that were safe to use during pregnancy.

 It is filled some brands and products I had heard of, however some new ones that I have now became a huge fan of. It’s was great to trial all the new brands, but I loved that you received the actual size samples of the products #winning. 


I think it is such a great gift idea for any expecting mumma for her baby shower or a congratulations president, as the bubba seems to be the one that gets spoilt. You could simply just #treatyourself too haha. You totally deserve the luxe relaxing time fir yourself, especially because you are the one growing the bubba and that can take its toll on your mind and body. 

Inside The Pregnancy Box is 

Mama Body Tea Pregnancy OR Morning Wellness Tea 28 serves 

Harvest Bliss Mama & Baby Milk Bath 100g

Tiny Tonics Stretch Mark Oil 125ml

Harvest Bliss Peppermint Foot Soak 30g


Harvest Bliss Milk Bath for Mumma and Baby and Peppermint Foot Soak
Mama Body Tea Pregnancy Tea and Tiny Tonics Stretch Mark Oil

Below are some images of me using the products as I genuinely love trailing everything I am sent. I did use some of the products with Cruzie included in the relax/metime as sometimes it’s just how it is. While he played with his toys in the bath I would be relaxing my sore legs and bump. I loved  sitting back relaxing and just enjoyed watching him learn new things. Multitasking right? 

Enjoying a Milk Bath with Cruzie Poozie.

Massaging the bump 🤰

Enjoying the foot soak. It’s pure bliss 🙏🏼💕
Sipping on pregnancy tea and having a read.
 

I highly recommend The Pregnancy Box to other expecting mummas, as I used every single one of the products provided in the box, I made sure of it. Haha. Can I get another? 🙋🏼

Thank you again for taking the time to read my review on such a gorgeous  gift box. I look forward to purchasing these for my expecting mumma friends, as they all deserve a bit of pampering.


You can purchase the The Pregnancy Box or other beautiful gift boxes, for either yourself or an expecting mumma online at www.avalolaorganics.com.au.

Jennifer Horner - Alice In Healthyland
35 weeks pregnant

Jennifer Horner is an amazingly talented photographer from Brisbane. She shoots maternity, newborn, family & children and motherhood sessions. Jennifer is an incredibly gifted woman and I am so thankful that she was able to capture such a treasured moment in my life.  

From the first email of contact, to the first moment I met Jennifer, she was extremely professional but so friendly to chat with. I found her very easy to connect with, (which is great when you are standing there just in your underwear in front of just her and the camera haha) and she made me feel welcome and relaxed in her studio. 

After connecting with Jennifer via email, she sent out a questionnaire and information pack about the the maternity shoot for me to complete and send back. Asking a little bit about myself, how many children I had, my husband, the colours I loved and what I had in mind for the photoshoot and what she could offer. She was very happy to answer any questions or queries I had in the lead up to the shoot and was prompt with her replies. I thought this was a great way for Jennifer to get to know me before she meet me. 

SHARE ME (19 of 60)

 The morning of the photoshoot I had my hair and make up done by Suzie, owner of An Eye For Style and then headed straight to the studio for the shoot. When I arrived, Jennifer had the studio set up ready to go (it was beautiful, filled with lots hanging blooms from the ceiling and a great playlist of tunes in the background). She had all the gowns & kimonos colour coded and ready for me to start trying them on straight way. She also had other options not far to offer if need be as well. I felt extremely comfortable and had lots of laughs with Jen, as she prompted me into different positions as she would snapped away with her camera. Jen would quickly change the backdrop or scene while I slipped into the next outfit too. All very well organised. She would show some of the images on her camera to me throughout the shoot to which I loved. 

 

 

My experience with Jen was exceptional, I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.  She is not only creative and talented, but so welcoming and always making sure I was happy and comfortable throughout the whole experience.

So thank you Jen for capturing this precious memory of my bump. I look forward to one day gifting these images and sharing stories of my pregnancy with my children.

#aliceloves feat. Bloembee – Rumbles Paleo Pete Evans Chindii Cookies. 

This weeks #alicesloves Feat. A posy from Bloembee segment, is something super delicious. I get to share my love for Rumbles Paleo newest addition to their healthy snack range, the Pete Evans Chindii Cookies. 

I am loving the support and positive feedback on the previous #aliceloves blogs, so thank you so much. You are all so kind.

A little about Rumbles Paleo

Rumbles Paleo is founded by an inspiring duo, Jen (who loves to cook) and Brian (who loves to eat). Rumbles Paleo has recently grown into the leading Paleo Health Snack range on the market. Jen and Brian both live and breed paleo, however their snacks are perfect for anyone to munch on. Their promise to you all is that they source the best possible ingredients to bring you the best tasting Paleo treats there are on the market. 

img_6857

I am a huge fan of Pete Evans and love his and families outlook on life. So I was so excited for my friends over at Rumbles Paelo, when I heard the news that they were collaborating with Pete to create this delicious new cookie to add to their delicious Paleo range. 

You all know that I love to create my own recipes, but being a busy mamma it is great to have some snacks that are easy to just throw into my handbag. I give them to Cruz too he loves them. If we were going out to a cafe for a date with a friend, I normally chuck the pack of two in the nappy bag so Cruzie can have one with his baby cino and if I’m lucky I get to have the other one with my tea. 

What I love about the flavour of the Chindii cookies is the delicious burst of cinnamon (I am a huge cinnamon fan) you get in your mouth as your munch on them and the chewyness of the coconut. 

I will definitely be stocking up on these cookies to munch on once my new born comes too as they will be a great grab and go snack. 


A special thank you to @bloembee for collaborating with me on this mini #aliceloves project of mine. We both enjoy sharing our love for the great products that we genuinely love that are new on the market.

In this weeks Posy of Blooms we had white disbuds, pink roses, white chryssie, green chryssie, pink alstroemerias. 

Bloembee provides a posy of blooms, delivered to the Brisbane area from just $30.

If you would love to be featured in this mini segment in the near future please email me at aliceinhealthyland@hotmail.com
