By Bonnie and Kind Founder (and mum-of-two), Judy Fraser
Mums, we all know after Bub - we don't leave the house empty handed. We need our trusty baby/toddler essentials by our side, at all times!
With so many products and options out there, we wanted to share a list of Cult Essentials that we’ve tried and tested here at Bonnie and Kind, along with other Mums – which we love!
We hope this also helps you streamline, travel lighter….and save dislocating your shoulder lugging around the house and the kitchen sink next time you leave the house (haven't we’ve all been there, done that!)
They have created the world’s greenest nappies that’s absorbent, high performing and eco-friendly! Made using pure cotton, sustainably sourced wood-pulp and non-GMO cornstarch, these nappies are gentle against your baby’s skin.
Ecoriginals nappies are 90% biodegradable, making your plastic impact with Ecoriginals zero. What’s even better? Order online and have them delivered direct to your door. No more lugging boxes of nappies out of the supermarket!
Has Nappy rash spray looked so good!? Purposely created to be practical for on the go.
Malo Baby Nappy spray allows you to quickly nappy change, spray and keep moving. No need to rinse, rub or wipe with your fingers! She comes in a slim, compact bottle to keep traveling light. Clean,conscious, made for modern parents.
We ADORE Dr. Bronner products and this littleHand Santizer spray in Lavender is just divine. Your hands doesn’t ever feel dried out and the lavender scent is not only refreshing but makes using hand sanitizers a delight!
With all the nappy changing, washing…more washing, we like to nourish dry hands with this little lady. Enriched with shea butter and lavender essential oil from Haute-Provence – we love the smooth, lightweight texture which doesn’t leave hands sticky. Oh and leaves hands smelling so divine.
For on the go nappy changes in pesky change rooms or the back of the boot – a plush, generously sized change mat that serves from Newborn to Toddler is a necessity. Also handy to have an extra set for the back of the car, in the spare pram or for the 2nd change station at home.
These gorgeous dummies are made right here in Australia by Australian label CMC Gold. Engineered to be safe, practical and for all ages, no wonder they’re so popular. CMC also creates personalised dummy straps so you don’t have to worry about dummies falling onto the ground or getting lost when you’re out and about.
Bella Bliss is a favourite here at Bonnie and Kind. A US label that creates heirloom-quality pieces for the most discerning clientele - these gorgeous shades are made using the finest cottons. And we love that it’s machine washable!
At Bonnie and Kind, we say “less is more" when it comes to baby bags. Cut from luxurious grained leather, our Baby Kit has been thoughtfully designed to house all baby essentials for when you’re on the go.
Endorsed by the Australian College of Midwives, this multivitamin sunscreen is natural zinc oxide based.We also love that it comes in a compact travel size, so you are not weighed down lugging around full sized products !
Rusks,snack sized sultanas or fruit pouches. We don’t want ‘hangry’ tots! Snacks are an essential with Toddlers and we’re a fan of Funch Australian Fruit pouches. Founded and made in Melbourne by a Mum, FUNCH pouches are made using real ingredients and loved by tiny mouths. Super convenient, Funch can be ordered online for delivery straight to your door. What a time saver!
Toddlers are very active, not to mention – fast! We always like to have a couple of band aids on hand for those accidental grazes.It’s amazing how quickly they go from crying to ‘all better’ when the band aid comes out. Elastoplasts are great, as they don’t bunch up as easily, making application nice and easy.
The little sister to Sophie the Giraffe, we love this this high quality teether as it’s the first teething ring made of 100% natural rubber. It’s lightweight and fastens easily onto the pram or in your trusty baby Kit.
We’ve tried (and lost) A LOT of water bottles and have found the Camelbaks to be the most durable - and they last ! They’ve been dropped from great heights, rolled over and over again here at Bonnie and Kind…and they just keeps going. We love that!
We always have a small pack of tissues by our side inaddition to wet wipes for runny noses!
Oh and of course a few essentials for us Mamas:
We find a slick of lippie instantly makes us feel brighter and fresher. We love Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks in Pillow Talk. These lippies are literally happiness in a tube! So nourishing, naturally enhances your lip colour and we think, gives you the best lips in your life!
How many times you have gone about your day and realised water barely passed through your lips when you have young ones? It’s important to stay hydrated and fuel your body with the vitamins and minerals you need. We love Aaquamama because sometimes you want something more than just water and all those sickly sweet beverage options on the market doesn’t appeal. Comes in a handy Sachet format for on the go or slimline cans.
For days where you wish to take more with you (that extra swaddle, or a water bottle for yourself), simply slide your Kit into a stylish large tote and when change time comes, all you need is within your trusty Kit!

THE BABY KIT + CHANGE MAT
Bonnie and Kind’s founder, mother of two and fashion lover, Judy Fraser noticed when she was pregnant with her son in 2015, there was a deficit of elegant, timeless designs for new mothers. She struggled to decipher what she needed to survive vs what she needed to feel good. She mourned swapping out beautiful handbags and totes she’d collected over the years for a cumbersome, unappealing and often impractical ‘baby bag’ that lacked all the feelgood-fashion-vibes she so desperately needed in this time. Lugging a big bag into the change room was anything but helpful. After realising friends and other mothers around her all felt the same, she started sketching, in search for a better solution.
With a successful career in Marketing representing global brands, Judy is no stranger to consumer-related problem solving. She has launched countless successful campaigns and brought innovations to the market for well-loved brands. With these skills in hand, Judy has created a new concept of baby bag, this time, showcasing something for the woman. First and foremost, she wanted the mother to feel good, from the moment she made the purchase, through to her first outing wearing it. She wanted the kit to feel luxurious, of the highest quality, and for it to be worn cross-bodied or within a tote bag.
“I really hope my brand Bonnie and Kind helps to support and uplift women throughout their motherhood journey. I want every mother to feel confident, empowered and proud, especially when they wear the kit. That would be a dream come true.” - Judy Fraser, Founder.
What mums are saying about us...
“ Exactly what I needed:I was so excited to receive this bag and it did not disappoint. Beautiful quality, design and materials. I didn’t think it would actually fit everything but it does! It even fits a few toddler snacks. It’s so nice to use this compact, easy to access baby bag. After 3 years of using giant bags where I could never find anything this is such a treat.” — Jenn
"Well made:Luxurious leather and well made. Great for a quick trip out on its own, and small enough to put in a larger bag on full day trips." - Lori
"Beautiful bag: This bag is made extremely well and the leather is of beautiful quality. I am able to fit the essential items for my baby and me when we are out and about. I got the navy colour and it's gorgeous! I will recommend this to all my mum and mum-to-be friends. Congratulations on a stunning product." - Gisela
