It’s out with the old and in with the new as we give you a peek into What Sassy Mama Wants this Mid-Autumn Festival!
The Mid Autumn Festival is full of colourful lanterns, endless mooncakes and celebrations with the family. But on top of that, the festival tends to project an out with the old and in with the new kind of vibe. We strive to keep on top of it all but in between sneakily throwing out old broken toys and unpackaging new pacifiers and baby wipes, we can’t forget to treat ourselves every now and then. So go on mama, treat yourself to something new, something Sassy Mama Wants this Mid Autumn!
PomPom & Puffin Sleeping Bags
These soft, super-breathable cotton sleeping bags designed by a Singapore mama with the heat in mind are the most adorable way to wrap up your little treasure at night! Doubling as a comforter with easy poppers and zips, it’ll slip easily in to your little one’s bedtime routine. For younger bubs, the sleeping bag can also be folded in half and secured with a button on the back to keep them snug and warm. We absolutely love the neutral, pastel colours and sweet printed designs.
