As I do a lot of baby shopping online I felt it would be helpful to share some of my favourites that have an online presence in Australia. Unfortunately, most of these weren’t around when my daughter was born. However, I love the style, products, and ethics of each of these. Most of these brands I’ve gotten to know through my brand so feel blessed that I can recommend them.
Love To Dream
Run by mums Stacey and Kim, Mikro Australia offers a large selection of gorgeous squishy play mats through their store. On purpose, they’ve removed primary colours from their mats so to the focus can be what’s placed on top. This is so the babies centre of attention is on whatever is placed on top of the mat. Their mats are easy to clean, eco-friendly, durable, waterproof, and nontoxic.
Little Rae Prints
Little Rae prints produce original artwork which is then turned into fabric wall decals. Ideal for a baby nursery, these prints are available from their boutique shop and ship around the world and through a selection of wholesalers. They also make a range of affirmation cards, the perfect way to show your love.
Perth based Relaax is another store that I love. They sell a range of Raatan bassinets which are made by artisans that support fair trade practices. Their bassinets are cute and stylish. They will be the centerpiece of any new nursery making it the perfect practical accessory.
Alf the label
If you are baby shopping online for nappy or diaper bags, you can’t go past Alf the label. Launched in October 2016 by Sophie Doyle the selection of nappy bags is available exclusively through her online shop. Her bags are both stylish and practical and are a sort after accessory for any new mum to be. We have also written a comprehensive blog on what to pack in your nappy bag. Like so many online shops, including ours, they also offer Afterpay.
Lilah and Co
Karly is the founder of Lilah and Co play gyms who have been featured by Inside Out Magazine and My Child Magazine. Her play mats measure 105cm x 90cm. They are durable, soft, padded, and double-sided so you can use them as a cot quilt too.
Babynoise is home to the original wooden percussion toys. Their range is available through their online baby store and consists of bird whistles, castanets, handheld drums, rainmakers, and barbell shakers. They are ideal for creative play for newborns or as nursery wooden decore display items. Founded early 2017 in Perth, Eve hand paints the pieces personally with nontoxic paint.
Burrow Baby started their business in Perth in 2015 and have since moved to Byron Bay. You can purchase their swaddles and wraps from their online store. The swaddles are made from a lightweight, bamboo fabric that is breathable and can stretch a little. Made in Australia, they are made with sustainable, eco-friendly materials.

The snap shade is a vehicle-specific window shade that is stylish, fits perfectly, practical, and affordable. The lightweight frame is flexible and allows the window to be partially wound down.

Prior to going into production each item is tested for quality by family and friends. This ensures that a high standard of comfort and durability of the garment.
Although this is an Australian list I couldn’t help sneak in a few international stores. The final two are personal favourites and we are looking to add Oli and Carol to our online shop.
Oli and Carol
Oli and Carol are based in Barcelona, Spain, and were founded by two sisters. Their range of natural rubber baby toys is available online and can be used as bath toys, teethers, or just for decoration.
They come in a range of styles including fruits and vegetables, origami boats, beetle cars, animals, and bracelets. Each item is handmade and painted one by one using natural food pigments. They are environmentally friendly and made from a 100% natural rubber. None of the products have a hole so they are mold-free and hygienic.
Dockatot One of the few international shops on my list, DockAtot is a Swedish brand that sells beautiful and stylish loungers. There are two sizes to choose from, the 0–8 months Deluxe + and the 9–36 months grand dock. These are ideal for a new baby to lounge, play, rest, or have tummy time. You can purchase additional covers to match the style of your nursery. As a major supplier, they sell to a number of stores around the world.
These are just a few of our favourite baby shops online in Australia. We hope to add additional businesses to this list over the coming years. If you choose to order something from our own shop please remember we can accept Afterpay and ship Australia wide and internationally.
