It's with great pleasure that I introduce this month's not-for-profit sponsors. As per last month, this July baby space is donating 50% of all sponsorship dollars to AFESIP and the Somaly Mam Foundation to help women and child survivors of human trafficking. If you'd like, you can read more about my hopes to raise money on our not-for-profit page.
Rock-A-Bye Baby Equipment Hire is a Sydney-based baby goodies store that hires out and sells practical and high-end baby equipment making must-haves and luxury items more accessible for mamas travelling through Sydney or for those of us on a budget. Isn't that a great idea? Danni who runs the online store is a mama herself who is always adding wonderful new items such as the Stokke Sleepi Cot and The Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper. I think if I had been able to hire the co-sleeper at the end of last year I would have got one for the little lady for sure. There was just not enough room in our bed for four!
Stokke Sleepi Cot to hire from approx $129 AUD and Arms Reach Co-Sleeper to hire from approx $39 AUD from Rock-A-Bye-Baby Equipment Hire.
If you regularly check out the giveaways on baby space then you'll already be familiar with Dragonfly Toys from their Patchwork Baby Quilt giveaway. Tracie and Linda at Dragonfly Toys are mamas who are dedicated to finding toys that enhance the magic of childhood with beautiful play things and products that are in keeping with Steiner education philosophies. They also stock books for littles and parents, like The Complete Buddhism For Mothers, which is one of my parenting bibles.

Tots 'N' Tales is a Sydney-based family run store full of stylish and fun wall decor, baby bags, carriers and nursery accessories. I am loving their simple nursery rugs, and aren't these decals fun? The large tree would be a fabulous jumping-off point for starting a nursery.
