Whether you’re a working mum, a stay at home mum or a mum in business you’ll find mums like you at Connect2mums making new friends, building relationships and chatting about everything from babies to business, the bedroom and beyond! Connect2mums provides great support and information for mums with a range of regular weekly columns including the New Mum’s Diary, Connect2Travel, Connect2Fitness and Connect2Relationships to name a few. Connect2mums members say it’s one of the most welcoming and friendliest sites they’ve experienced! It’s free to join and a whole lot of fun with Friday night live chat parties, excellent real life events and great competitions!

I’ve been a member over at Connect2mums for almost a year and have made some fabulous connections on both the business and friendship fronts. We’ve even started having fun and fabulous live events with our next one set for May. Here’s what some of our current Kiwi members have to say about Connect2mums:

“Connect2mums offers amazing networking opportunities to anyone running their own business. Not only that but everyone is amazingly supportive of one another, genuinely interested in connecting with you and always friendly! I’m looking forward to seeing the NZ side of Connect2mums branch out and expand!”
Jacquie Shanks

“I am extremely impressed with Connect2mums. In a highly competitive market, the support & positive relationships gained through this form of on-line media has been instrumental. The creativity of the platform to communicate & network has allowed us to quickly seize opportunities & leverage the talents of many WAHP’s to evolve our business. Thank you C2M’s, for continually steering us towards an outcome we are proud of!”
Maria Steele
NewBawn Limited

“Since becoming a member of Connect2mums, so many networking and business opportunities have presented themselves. The support and help I have been given by other C2M’s members has been invaluable. I love being a part of the C2M community and you will too! See you at Connect2mums!!”

We would love for more Kiwi mums to join us! We are so keen to meet you onsite that I, along with some of my fellow Kiwi Connect2mums members, have put together a fantastic prize pack that one lucky new Kiwi member will win! It’s valued at $350.00 and includes the following:

From Aquabub – a $50.00 store credit!

From Bubbalooz – a Dobbin & Drums ear friendly drum in red

These beautifully handmade drums are made in NZ from mostly recycled products. Drum skins are made from recycled rubber and creates a unique, deep, mellow sound (even when whacked really hard) and is pleasant to the ears. As a bonus they would even look great on the shelf or wall as a decorative.

From Karyn Riley – a voucher for a discounted coaching strategy session

Karyn specialises in helping mums and business women have time for their priorities, rediscover their identity and achieve their goals. She is author of the forthcoming book “How to Keep the YOU in Mum”. Check out her parenting tips on her blog!

From MumCho – a Chiffon Poncho ‘Pretty Flowers’

Are you pregnant and looking for a fashion garment that is functional and will save money in the long run? MumCho Poncho’s can be worn in 6+ ways during pregnancy and beyond. They can be used to discreetly breastfeed in public. There is no need to buy any other breastfeeding tops. MumChos are easy care and all prints are limited edition.

From Onesie Bummsie – a 3-pack of bodysuit extenders

Onesie Bummsies are Onesie extenders that snap onto baby bodysuits. They are extremely useful for the bulkier night time nappy or just with a cloth nappy in general. They will also extend the life of a bodysuit as well, especially when at that awkward “in between” size. Onesie Bummsie’s are made from Cotton Flannelette.

From Scamps Boutique – 1 x Made4Baby Sleep Tight Massage Oil

From StickyTiki – Pukeko removable fabric wall decals

These cheeky Pukekos (the New Zealand swamp hen) are a common sight. It is one of the few native birds to have enjoyed the arrival of man and can be found in almost any grassland area, especially in swampy locations. Groups of these quirky birds are seen foraging for food in road-side areas. With bright blue plumage and red beaks, they easily stand out. The Pukeko is loved by kiwis and visitors alike.

Sheet size is 50cm by 70cm / 20 by 28 inches

Mural contents –

•1 x mummy pukeko
•3 x baby pukekos
•1 x cabbage tree
•3 x swamp grass
•2 x purple grass
•2 x green grass

All of the StickiTiki designs are original hand painted/crafted designs on fabric adhesive using only eco inks that are washable, kind to your walls, kind to the environment, and most importantly kind to our little people!

Pop-In Modern Cloth Nappy

All month long we will be loading mad specials to our March Madness page over on the Aquabub website. The specials will only be available for 2 – 4 days each (Cloth nappy fans you will love our current mad specials!). We will also be offering giveaways throughout the month – thank you to the fabulous New Zealand and Australian businesses who have donated most of the giveaway items!

Aquabub March Madness Giveaway #3 is a Pop-In Original Modern Cloth Nappy in ‘Custard’ (pastel yellow) and wetbag, kindly donated by Cheeky Cherubs.

The multi-award winning Pop-In™ features four size settings in total, a large outer shell to accommodate bigger toddlers and strong water-proofing for maximum wash and wear protection. The Pop-In™ Original is made from bamboo, a highly absorbent material, eco friendly and naturally antibacterial. This nappy is a slim fitting, fast drying solution for parents wanting natural fibres next to baby’s delicate skin.

Fits from 3 – 16kgs+ (7lbs – 35lbs+) making the Pop-In™ a supremely flexible birth to potty solution.

Features of the Pop-In™

• Double elasticated leg gusset for fantastic containment (even for breast fed babies!)
• Easy to wash, Fast to dry
• Goes on baby as one piece
• One size grows with your baby from birth to potty training independence
• Soft stretchy adjustable tabs
• Easy to use aplix fastening (similar to velcro)
• Soft elasticated waistband
• Multi-sized popper system
• Soft touch waterproof outer shell
• Oekotex standard 100 Azo free dyes

Created for maximum comfort and convenience, the baby-soft inner soaker snaps inside the nappy’s outer shell for easy one-step nappy changing. Unlike an all-in-one nappy it can break apart for thorough laundering and flexible boostering.

Revolutionary in design, the Pop-In™ uses a multi-sized snaps / popper system and stretchy tabs to grow with your baby, providing a snug and reliable fit at all stages of development.

NB: Inner soaker and booster can be tumble dried. Outer shell cannot. Add an extra Booster to your Pop-In Nappy for when your baby is sleeping through the night.
