Little Miracle

A few months ago, with the arrival of our son, I found myself (sleep-deprived and still relatively inexperienced) fumbling in the semi-dark and dressing our wriggling newborn in the most complicated outfit to put him back to sleep. Chances are the outfit now wouldn’t seem nearly close to complicated, but ask any new mom with two left hands (unless you’re REALLY a leftie!) how hard it is to do those initial 3 am nappy changes complete with an outfit change because of a “blow-out poo” 🙂 Yip, anything that is quick, practical and comfortable for little one to wear in those initial few months is welcomed with open arms which is why I’m so excited about this range that we’re now launching with Keedo and Spree! By buying one of these easy to wear (for the baby, not you!!!) limited edition zip onesies or zippy grows as we like to call them, you’ll be feeding an underprivileged family of 6 a healthy balanced meal! So, as we’re celebrating your little miracle and the little miracle that that meal will be to the family, we are calling our range “Little Miracle”. Simple 😉

The reason to partner with Keedo is simple and multi-faceted. I met the founder and CEO of the proudly South African company, Nelia Annandale, about 14 years ago when I was a newly crowned Miss South Africa and Pasella presenter and I had the honour of interviewing her about her company. They had just moved into their then new factory in Paarden Island and she still vividly remembers me traipsing around in my ridiculous heels in the factory. She had made such an impression on me with her business ethic and rootedness in building this proudly South African brand. Also, the fact that Keedo is designed and produced in SA with the happiest factory staff I’ve ever seen – that truly won me over time and time again!

Keedo and I are partnering on this incredible initiative and I am really excited that through selling our 1000 zippy grows, we’ll feed 6000 people. Get yours ASAP!!! They will fly off the Keedo shelves and my favourite online retailer SPREE will also sell them with a cute matching bib! So, they are perfect as gifts for Christmas or even as baby shower gifts or as sommer just because gifts for friends or yourselves with new little people! They are available in 3 colours – blue, pink and a neutral stone colour in woven 100% cotton. Sizes will be newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months and 6-9 months.

This is a passion project and all the partners in this venture are doing it for no profit – just a chance to give back and celebrate the Little Miracles in life. Please support this initiative and make sure you buy one or two 🙂 If you could spread the word, I’d really appreciate it!

    Bless your heart!
    What a great concept! I am inspired…I remember those complicated middle of the night changes and wished for better clothing for quick changes.

    A mother’s love is a beautiful expression of God’s everlasting love. The shortest, most powerful word I know is “God”, and the greatest abundant word I know is “bless” and the person I wish the best in all your endeavours is you! Keep doing what you’re doing. 🙂
