Things we love July 2023

Reading Time: 5 minutes
July is the month when we just want to snuggle up by a roaring fire (bearing in mind that we probably won’t be able to use heaters this winter), drinking hot chocolate (or maybe sipping some red wine/ whiskey- pick your poison) under a snuggly blanket. The BYY team has compiled our must-haves for the month where we need some extra TLC just to make it through! You know you can trust our recommendations, so we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

UVC Multipurpose Steriliser 

Oh, let me tell you about the Mini Multipurpose Steriliser Box! It’s been an absolute game-changer for me as a mom. I absolutely love it! It saves so much time and effort in ensuring my little one’s bottles and dummies etc are clean and germ-free. It uses LED light technology which is clean, effective and safe for your family and the environment. 

I love the small steriliser as it’s totally portable- I can simply pop it into my baby bag and take it wherever we go. So, when my baby drops his dummy onto the floor – which he inevitably always does, I can sterilise it then and there!

Another fantastic feature is the power source – both micro-USB port and batteries can be used to operate this nifty gadget. And don’t get me started on how quick it is; just one minute of sterilisation kills all germs, bacteria and viruses without leaving behind any strange smells or tastes – such a relief! Oh, did I mention that they offer this marvelous device in pink and white? It adds a touch of cuteness to our home while providing top-notch sanitisation capabilities.

The larger size boxes and bags are perfect for sterilising plates, cutlery etc. This an absolute must-have for the home. Click here for more amazing products. UVC Technology SA

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cooking taking up too much time?

We’re huge fans of recipes by Sarah Graham, not just because they use the healthiest of ingredients but also because they are quick and easy—and your children will love them. Sarah wrote Good + Simple by Sarah Graham during the Pandemic which forced her (and everyone) to become more flexible in her approach to cooking and eating. This led to her reworking some family favourites to take up minimal time and energy.

From juices like Green Goodness Breakfast Crumble Bars to Nutella French Toasties and Cauli Nuggets to Thai Red Curry Bowls, Broccoli and Cheddar Soup to Butternut and Sage Macaroni and Peppermint Crisp Pudding Pots, there’s something for everyone to enjoy and best of all, won’t take hours to make.

Check out the website for some of Sarah’s delicious recipes.

Bookish delights

These are our books of the month for toddlers. Take your pick from below:

The little fear by Luke Scriven  Fabulous—it’s about conquering your fears, teaching kids that fear is a normal emotion but you can’t let it control you. Bringing fear back down to a manageable size is healthy and that conquering fears is an important part of life. Takealot R185

Mazy the movie star by Isla Fisher This book is a great way to show children that sometimes making a change within yourself is necessary to move forward. It touches on arrogance as well, making it a ‘must-read’ for children to learn that stubbornness and arrogance don’t get you anywhere. Takealot R149

Captain Looroll by Matt Carr A very cute addition to your bookshelf, the superhero element makes this book attractive to kids. Plus, it’s about the importance of cleaning up after a mess. Takealot R169

 

 

Daar’s ‘n Towerponie in my bed by Martelize Faber The story of a child missing her mother, who went to the hospital, the child is given a unicorn toy to comfort her while her mother is away. Adventure-packed yet manages to convey that imagination is an amazing attribute. Takealot R205
