Introducing Sinchies – Reusable Food Pouches

I am excited to announce that we are now a stockist for Sinchies reusable pouches.

Why have I decided to stock Sinchies?

For my oldest two kids I did baby led weaning and I had every intention of doing it with our third. Unfortunately, she is unable to do baby led weaning, nor can she be spoon fed, which left us with one option, commercial pouch food. Not only is this both costly and waste creating but you also can not control what food your child actually eats. Since I like to use reusable options for everything else, why not the food pouches as well. Sinchies to the rescue, now I am able to finally get some food into our third child but I can also control what food goes into them to make sure they are healthy.

What else can Sinchies be used for?

Sinchies pouches can be used for so much more than baby food, they a great for camping and travelling, 80ml is the perfect size for international travel! They are also available in a range of sizes. A list of how the reusable pouches has been compiled and it can be found here.

What are the advantages of Sinchies?

Safe: Free from BPA, Phthalates and PVC. Our reusable food pouches are Freezer safe too!

Easy: They are super easy to use!

Versatile: Sinchies reusable food pouches are suitable for all sorts of baby foods, smoothies, fruit crushers, yoghurt, jelly, custard as well as other purposes such as travel toiletries, sauces or salad dressings. Take them camping, in the car or on the plane!

Eco-friendlyWith the environment in mind, minimal packaging, reusable packaging, biodegradable or recyclable materials have been used

They cut food costs, encourage healthy eating, reduce waste, and provide a fun and clean way to feed your children, whether you’re at home, at school or out and about.

Raising Awareness for Respiratory Syncytial Virus

Firstly, welcome to our very first blog post. I want to use this space to share information that may be helpful to other people wanting to help reduce their waste, with the occasional post about something I find important.

I recently shared this information on the #getintocloth Queensland Facebook group but also wanted to share it here. I want to help spread some awareness of a ‘lovely’ little virus called Respiratory Syncytial Virus or RSV for short. My family got struck with this past week and I have unfortunately been in and out of hospital with my 3 month old all week. The reason I want to spread awareness is because to adults and older children, this virus just feels and looks like a cold. However, to children under 2, elderly and the immune compromised it isn’t. Babies under 6 months are often hospitalised either from respiratory distress or dehydration (our scenario)

I have seen the varying degrees of sickness for myself first hand. My 3.5 only had a slight cough and runny nose all week, 22 month old’s cough is much worse but our baby has been struggling. I feel for the parents who had babies with respiratory distress and need oxygen, it was difficult enough just seeing ours in the coughing fits and temporarily having difficulty breathing but we thankfully didn’t need oxygen.

I know it can be inconvenient to have a few days off from work, and to pay for day care fees to keep kids home if it appears to just be a runny nose and a cough, but what may appear to be a cold to you may be something more sinister to someone else. Please if you or you child/ren have a cold please stay home.

What are the Symptoms?
  • Fever
  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Breathing is faster than normal
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Lethargic
  • Unusually upset
  • Refusing to feed (both breast and/or bottle)
  • Signs of dehyrdation – sunken fontanels, no tears when crying, cool dry skin, reduced number of wet nappies

Please share this information around.
