New Shoes!!!

We are VERY exciting here at Bebe + Me HQ - we had a HUGE delivery of new super cute baby leather shoes arrive today.... so guess what I've been doing for most of the day!!!

These soft leather shoes are ideal for pre-walkers, but also make GREAT little slippers for your little toddler when around the house.

The supply leather means plenty of room for little toes to wriggle about and with a non-slip suede sole they are prefect as house slippers, especially if you have wooden or tiled flooring.

The elasticated ankle makes them super easy to put on, but also helps to keep them secure of little ones feet and as there nice and light weight your little one will soon forget they even have them on.

All of Bebe + Me Baby Leather Shoes are £10 each ♥

Dribble in style!!!

As a mum of a very dribbly baby, I completely understand the nightmare situation it is of keep your little one dribble-free.

Sadly there's very little you actually do to stop the flow of drool, but you can prevent the soggy top's the would constantly need changing or avoid the sometime sore neck he would get - simply by having them wear a dribble bib (or sometimes known as a bandana bib).

The Bebe + Me range of dribble bibs/ bandana bibs is not only extensive in their patterns and designs but are so practical in helping your little one stay dry you will simply want more and more.....

The funky design make it impossible to choose just one as your favourite, the soft absorbent fleece soaks up all dribble & drool and the use of 2 nickel-free snap fastenings will allow your bandana bib/ dribble bib to grow with your baby.

Say HELLO to a Bebe + Me Friend

Rosy Cheek Cosy - Co-ordinating bits and bobs for the nursery. 100% cotton designer prints and bamboo have been used to create gorgeous, modern collections.

Tessa has had a love of fabrics... the colours, the textures, the play on her mood... since being tiny and with her own tiny babies she started creating little mementos for them to cuddle.

The babies are slightly bigger now and with that came the want to fulfil that creative vision and to create a brand of her vision. She loves all things eclectic and bright and especially a mix of fabrics. Patchwork lends itself well to achieve this mix of texture and design and can be seen in some of her designs.

Her influence comes from having spent many years living and travelling abroad.

Tessa lives a life looking for natural and quality products. Her choice of 100% cotton is an important factor in the luxury feel of her designs. Cotton is lovely and breathable and a natural choice for babies and children. Her other love is for Bamboo fabric which comes from having spent hours seeking peace and solitude in amongst bamboo canes as a child.

She is drawn to anything out of Bamboo and with the Bamboo fabric arriving on the market having such a whisper of softness to the touch and it having eco credentials, she instantly fell in love. Bamboo could not suit a baby textiles brand better. Her vision is to offer bamboo products for all its benefits, combined with colour and gorgeous print designs.

Rosy Cheek Cosy is a small business with a big heart, and an aim to offer softness, quality and comfort. The designs are created using fabrics which Tessa considers them to be “So yummy you could eat them!”

Why not become a "Bebe + Me Friend" and let us shre you lovely designs with our friends and followers - not only will we mention you here on our Blog but we will share you delights on Facebook, Twitter and Blogs and British Mummy Bloggers.

DON'T FORGET to check out our website whilst your busy reading about our lovely friends; our collection of Bandana Dribble Bibs, Tag Blankets, Leather Pram Shoes, Clothes, Rag Dolls & Toys are always a great gift idea ♥

Mummy's on the Go!!!

Becoming a new mummy is a complete shock to all the sense's and one thing I found especially important was to get out of the house. As a first time mum I found it really daunting waking up every morning with no creative goal apart from caring for my precious son. Now some of you will say looking after a child is the most fulfilling role any women can take on.... However I'm sure I'm not alone; but when you've worked all your working life its a shock to the system when all of the sudden your not!!

Anyway I found the best tonic was to get out and about; join play groups, clubs, meet other new mums and find new friends. At first this can also seem quiet daunting (its funny how baby's require so much stuff) but once your in to a routine it becomes second nature.

One item all new mums should have is your own Changing/ Play Mats - Bebe + Me has now created a small but adequet collection of cute changing/play mats which can also double up for play mats.

The use of wipe clean oilcloth makes our mats truly versatile - use the oilcloth side for changing baby, if any mess is made simply wipe it clean. On the inner side with have used warm soft minky fleece which is ideal for laying/ sitting your baby on when attending baby massage, rhyme time or baby sensory.

Our Changing/ Play Mats fold up nice and compact to easily slip into mummys changing bags, they are secured my velcro for ease (especially if you only have one hand free).

Why not keep your baby up to trend with one of Bebe + Me's funky Bandana Dribble Bibs Tag Blankets Leather Baby Shoes

Bebe + Me dribble bib themes

Whilst decorating my son's bedroom and then playroom for some unknown reason I was drawn towards everything and anything to do with pirates.

Now that he is a little older and is beginning to form words and favour certain toys over others, we are again being drawn towards a theme (at the moment its dinosaurs)... These chosen themes often find themselves appearing in other items we buy for them such as; book, clothes and bedding.

With this understanding Bebe + Me has created a collection of dribble bibs; where we can guarantee almost every possible theme is covered.

For the Boys:
Dinosaur dribble bibs
Skull & Cross Bone dribble bibs
Farm Animal dribble bibs
Cars, Planes & Train dribble bibs

For the Girls:
Butterfly dribble bibs
Floral dribble bibs
Princess dribble bibs
Strawberry dribble bibs

To be continued....

Dribbling has never been funkier!!

Dribbling is a tell tell sign that your baby is teething, along with rosy red cheeks and general grumpiness.

Depending on your baby they may dribble heaps or none at all; my son Eton starting dribbling at about 4 months and goes through stages where he dribbles a lot or none at all... at the moment (16 months) he's dribbling a lot again as well as being incredibly grumpy (but its his bigger back teeth coming through so its all understandable)....

This is when I found our Bebe + Me Bandana Dribble Bibs a life (and clothes)saver... the funky bandana style allows these dribble bibs to become a functional fashion accessory.

All of our bandana dribble bibs are made from 100% cotton fronts, polyester super soft fleece backs, 2 nickel free snap fastenings and our bandana dribble bibs have a distinctive white top stitch detail.

Our use of soft fleece backs enables our bandana dribble bibs to soak up all of yours babies dribble, milk and sick-up. The fleece also prevents the dribble from soaking through on to their clothes and also draws the moisture away from their delicate skin and helps to prevent your baby from developing a sore neck.

Our bandana dribble bibs are ideal for babies from birth as there V-shape design does not swamp their small delicate frames and also do not hide the beautiful clothes us mums spend hundreds of pound on. As we use of 2 nickel free snap fastenings our adjustable sized bandana dribble bibs can be worn by children up to the age of 5 years+.

All of our bandana dribble bibs can be washed at 30 degrees, preferably air dried but if necessary tumble dried on a low heat and can be ironed normally.

Bebe + Me Adwords

Bebe + Me's New Year's resolution was to increase our google ranking by any means... The endless Blogging, Tweeting and FB have made some headway but not improved our ranking so much that we hit the golden 1st page....

So we've decided to take out some Google Adwords!!! To be honest we have no idea what we're doing BUT our advert is there and ready to be clicked (but please don't all rush out and click on it!!)

So fingers crossed this might generate a few sells; for our collection of beautiful handmade baby and toddlers gifts: bandana bibs, tag blankets, baby leather shoes, toddler clothes, busha leggings, dribble bibs, knitted hats, soft toys, rag dolls.

We have also uploading products to google shopping (again however we know very little about how to increase our ranking on this, but it all helps in one way or another).

New Shoes at Bebe + Me

The saying goes "A girl can never have too many shoes" - well here at Bebe + Me we believe a "Baby can never have too many either"... especially in these colder months the added protection of a gorgeous pair of Leather Shoes is a great bonus and fantastic way to finish an outfit.

Not only does the soft leather provide that extra layer over those little toes but they are perfect for little crawler/ standers or first time walkers.... I have also found that they make great slippers for little walkers especially if you have wooden or tiled flooring.

We have a gorgeous collection for both boys and girls x

Dont forget we also have a beautiful collection of Bandana Dribble Bibs, Rag Dolls, Tag Blanket + much more

Bebe + Me SALE!!!

The Bebe + Me SALE is increasing; more products are being added everyday.

Baby Leather Shoes, Soft Toys and soon to be added Bandana Dribble Bibs

Product research??

Designing your own website is a challenge, trying to increase your google ranking is something else. I also have the added difficulty of knowing which search terms people and potential customers are using; is it "bandana bib" "dribble bib" "kerchief"..???

After intense blogging, networking and more blogging I have seen a slight increase in one search term but the others stay frozen... GRrrr!!!

I suppose the only way around this is to use all keywords in ever blog I write (not great to people reading them though), bt how else can I make the precious time spent networking and blogging work for me?

Key words I use at the moment consist of:
bandana bib
dribble bib
tag blanket
baby gift
baby leather shoes
soft toys
rag dolls

As a complete novice at all of this I find myself even questioning the use of adding "links" to Blog etc, do the little crawler bots read the links or would it make more sense to actually write the web page address in full???

Its so confusing but I it is my mission for 2011 to get my website to the golden page No.1

SALE now on!!

Bebe + Me has SALE items looking for new homes. We are still in the process of adding our SALE items but we already have some baby leather shoes added and will soon have some bandana dribble bibs available, clothes, toys and accessories:
