New mamas and soon-to-be-mamas, this one’s for you. We all know it takes a village to care for a baby, but how do you make sure you and your caregivers are united on your little one’s essential info like routine, mealtimes and food allergies? There’s nothing worse than coming home to your baby and finding out they’ve been given food they’re not supposed to have, fed too early/late or have missed their medication! Here’s where the Same Page Baby magnetic Same Page Infant Tracker comes in.
Stick it on your fridge and you can use it to communicate everything your baby gets up to every day – simply write in marker what they’re eating and drinking, what time they were fed, whether they’ve pooed, what activities they got up to… you can even track their moods! This nifty tool is great to ensure helpers, grandparents, aunts or uncles are all on the same page when they lend a helping hand while you tackle your daily life. It’s easy to use, reusable (eco-friendly, yay!) and so convenient!

Matchy-matchy lovers take note! UNIQLO has just launched a collection with Australia-based print designer Cassie Byrnes, best known for her abstract exploration of native flora and fauna in vivid primary colours. The UT (UNIQLO T-shirt) collection features brand-new patterns specially designed for UNIQLO as well as Cassie Byrnes’ signature patterns on women’s T-shirts, shorts and dresses. We love the matchy-matchy girl’s dresses in the same prints so mama and daughter can coordinate looks! Pictured is the WOMEN Cassie Byrnes Camisole Dress ($39.90) and the matching GIRLS Cassie Byrnes Jersey Sleeveless Dress ($19.90).
The full collection will be available online and at all UNIQLO stores.
You may know them for their mamas’ and kids’ line but Seed Heritage’s teen girl selection is well worth checking out! With sizes from UK8-UK16, these chic casual threads will suit older teens and trendy mamas. Make sure you check out their sale section too for major markdowns on past collections.

Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) has launched the I’mPOSSIBLE Celebrations campaign to raise awareness for Singapore’s top para athletes competing in the Tokyo 2021 Paralympics! As part of the campaign, SDSC has launched young reader storybooks featuring the story of Singapore’s very own Nur Syahidah Alim, the world’s No. 1 ranked para archer. Due to cerebral palsy, little Syahidah was told she was weak and had little friends to play with yet she went against all odds and worked hard to achieve her dreams of becoming a para archer! Two versions of the storybook are available to suit beginner readers (aged 6 and below) and early readers (aged 7 to 12). E-versions of the storybook are available for free, while the physical copies of the storybook are $20 per copy. Introducing these books to your kids could be a great way to practice inclusivity at home!
