No Mess Hack Your Parenting + GIVEAWAY

No Mess Hack Your Parenting + GIVEAWAY

Our guide to 'no mess hack your parenting' to save you time, effort, and stress.

Something I’ve learned over the past 7+ years is that parenthood is a roller-coaster journey filled with love, laughter, and plenty of sleepless nights. While there's no one-size-fits-all approach to parenting, a few clever hacks can certainly make life easier for both you and your little ones. Here's our guide to 'no mess hack your parenting' to save you time, effort, and stress.

1. Save yourself from midnight sheet changes

Late-night bedsheet changes are a nightmare for parents with little ones. The solution? Bed mates from the Midnight Gang! These waterproof sheets are placed on top of your fitted sheet, acting as a protective layer against any bed wetting accidents in the middle of the night. So, if your little one has an unexpected bedwetting incident or spills their water or catches a dreaded tummy bug, worry not! Simply remove the bed mate, and your regular sheet stays dry and cozy. It's a win-win for everyone involved, especially for those of us who are tired parents seeking extra minutes of sleep. Plus they are also handy for sleepovers, camping and caravans too as your little one can sleep on them and you don’t have to wash a full set of sheets after only one night.

2. Dishwasher Safe Plates you can cook in too easy cooking:

I know I’ve shared this one before but it’s a huge fave in my house. Preparing meals for your tiny tot can be time-consuming, especially when it involves cleaning up extra pans and bowls after cooking. So I’ve said goodbye to the hassle with silicone plates that are not only microwave-safe but also dishwasher-friendly. You can now cook pancakes and frittatas or other small dishes directly on these plates, cutting down on the need for additional cookware. Once mealtime is over, pop the plate in the dishwasher for a quick and effortless clean-up. More time spent with your kids and less time washing up? With three of my own, this cooked breakfast hack is a parenting win!

3. Mess-free playtime with wipeable play mats:

Our play mats are so versatile it feels like magic. They are super easy to clean, saving you from the stress of stains or spills during creative play sessions. Whether it's finger painting in shaving cream, chickpea foam, play dough or sensory rice, you can let your little ones explore their creativity without worrying about the aftermath. Wipe clean immediately after use and let them dry. Too easy!

4. Say Goodbye to Bedtime Drink Disasters

But fear not, we have a brilliant solution for you: the water-resistant doona covers and pillowcases from the Midnight Gang. These luxurious covers not only add a touch of stylish fun to your child's bedding but also act as a reliable shield against spills and stains.

5. Snack time on the play mat:

Why limit the play mat to just creative activities when you can make snack time a part of the fun too? Embrace the mess and offer snacks directly on the play mat. Whether it's fruit like watermelon, smoothies, or baby-friendly finger foods, the wipeable surface makes clean-up a breeze. Just give it a wipe with a damp cloth and your good to go. Plus, it encourages your kids to develop good eating habits while having a blast.
