Baggin babes is the brainchild of Liezl Schoonraad, an entrepreneur and busy mom of two. After experiencing two emergency c-sections and a short stint in NICU with the birth of their daughters, Liezl and her husband Andries have lived through the varied emotions and experiences that go with bringing a precious new life into the world, and understand how unexpected and overwhelming this miracle of life can be.
Baggin babes strives to make mom and baby’s meeting and first few days together as relaxed and comfortable as possible and take some of the stress out of the birthing process by making sure that the bare necessities are taken care of, and also assisting with those little things that help mom ease into her amazing new role as parent and caregiver.
Your hospital bag is arguably the most important bag you will ever need, there are no do-overs or resets and for most moms no quick stop at the store on the way for the last few things. Also, most hospital shops do not carry anything but snacks, super pricey toys and magazines and will be of little to no help for a birthing mom.
Our baby care, travel and breastfeeding kits are put together in such a way that any parent or caregiver can be assured that they will have everything they need to take care of the precious little ones, from helping mom get into the swing of breastfeeding or helping grandparents ensure that their home is a safe and secure environment and that they have all the tools they need to put all those years of child rearing expertise to good use.
Our one of a kind, handmade, high contrast baby play sets are designed in consultation with experts in the field to help give baby the all-important visual and sensory stimulation that they need to meet milestones and develop at their full potential.
We are here to help you at every step during this amazing and challenging journey and hope to welcome you to the Baggin Babes family!
