3. Babyluxe: Safe, organic and stylish baby products
Looking for some sweet stylish baby gear, toys or bath products? You are going to want to know about Babyluxe – it’s the place to get high quality, organic, safe products for you and your bub. We have some favourites to shout out – how fun does the KIDKII ball pit look? Designed and developed in Denmark, this organic ball pit is non-toxic (BPA- and phthalate-free) and highly bio-degradable. It uses a plant-based foam that is primarily made from corn that is STC food level certified and safe even if children put it in their mouth (and of course they will!). We also love the look of the organic, non-toxic Gentle Me Mini Bath Bombs – handmade in Singapore using all-natural ingredients. These gorgeous bath bombs are safe and gentle on your baby’s skin (and if you want to steal some for your own bath mama, we won’t blame you!). Just drop one in a mini tub for kids, or use a couple if you are making a bath for yourself. Last shout out goes to their CONTI+ oXan clean Hand and Surface sanitiser produced and tested in Germany. It’s great for your home when your baby mouths everything as it’s non-toxic, alcohol-free and provides a safe solution to eliminate germs.
4. Charlotte Marn Dance School: First and Only ABT Curriculum in Singapore!

Here, dance is about more than just movement. They echo the ABT’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity and are confident that this curriculum gives a better foundation for their students. If your child is serious about ballet – this is the school to check out!
5. TRIBE by Income: The ONE thing you’ll need this March School Holidays!
Is your child accident-prone, mama? We feel you! Don’t let your fear of what might happen to your child hold you back from letting them have a blast this March school holidays. There are rock climbing walls to scale, trampolines to bounce on and playgrounds to go crazy in. What happens if they hurt themselves outside? You can’t always wrap your little one in cotton wool, but you can cover your child should the unfortunate happen. Get peace of mind with the right insurance to cover your family. TRIBE by Income is a monthly insurance premium subscription that is flexible and super affordable! The insurance plan grows with your child so you can change coverage according to your child’s needs, without any lock-in period!
The TRIBE by Income Child pack insures your child for injuries, infectious diseases, food poisoning and accidental allergic reactions from as little as $0.16 a day. While other insurance plans often don’t cover you for the “extras”, with TRIBE your child is covered from any follow-up treatments with a chiropractor or physiotherapist after an accident. Furthermore, if the injury/illness requires herbal remedies to boost their immune system, your child is also covered from Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments (even psychiatrists too!). You can even receive cash payouts when your child is hospitalised or on prolonged medical leave due to illnesses or injuries to cover the costs of your child missing tuition or enrichment classes. Read up on the full benefits of the TRIBE by Income Child Pack here!
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Visit tribe.income.com.sg and select the ‘Child Pack’
2. Select ‘SassyMama’ when prompted about membership
3. Choose the $5/month premium size
4. Your free 6 months will be auto applied upon check out and your $20 worth of GrabFood vouchers will be sent to your email.
