I’m a Mum with 3 kids aged 7,5 and 2.
What is Newbies?
Newbies was created after I saw a gap in the NZ market. I decided to make the first baby log for NZ Mum’s and it’s something I’m incredibly proud of. This innovation has helped to forge the spirit of Newbies, we want to be leaders not followers.
What was the inspiration for starting Newbies?
It came out of need. I was frustrated that no one else had created a good enough baby log so I decided to make my own. It was really important that it included everything I felt a new Mum would need.
How long have you been in business for?
What does the future hold for yourself and Newbies?
I’m passionate about design and creating new and unique products. I love the freedom that Newbies offers me and I’m focusing on developing the brand to encompass that spirit.
What is your secret to working from home with kids?
I don’t have one, it’s always pretty crazy around here! I suppose the secret is to embrace crazy and hope that sanity will pay you a visit from time to time.
What advice do you have for our pregnant and new mums?
This is your time with your baby, try to enjoy the moment because it doesn’t last long. Don’t let other people tell you what to do and how to do it. Trust your instincts, ask for help when you need it and take everything with a grain of salt.
