Day 1: Witching Hour Survival Kit

Pic Stitch The Witching Hour - final.

  Velour Hooded Robe // Nuzilla ABC Poster // Baby by Earthwise // eeBoo Circus Adventure Textless Book // Wallallure Midnight Butterflies Wall Stickers // Donovan’s Feijoa Milk Chocolate Bar

Only a parent knows the feeling in the pit of their stomach that comes with 4.30pm.  The time when kids must be fed, bathed and put to bed in a flurry of food smeared across faces, soap in their eyes and negotiation on just one more story.

Bring a little bit of sanity to your witching hour with these beautiful Earthwise Baby bubble bath, body wash and soap before you wrap your little person in their gorgeous Babu Bathrobe.  Once they’re in bed spray the room with Earthwise Baby Sleep Spray and let their eyes wander across a bedroom wall covered in butterflies from Wallallure and adorned with their own Nuzilla ABC Poster.

Leave them to drift off to sleep with their textless book of a Circus Adventures while you escape to the lounge and scoff a delicious King Size bar of Donovan’s Feijoa Chocolate.
