Woo-hoo…Mums on Mondays (where we showcase businesses that cater to families and children in the Toowoomba area) is baaaaack! I’m so excited to be sharing The Online Nest with you today!
The Online Nest was started by a mum-of-two, and early-childhood teacher, Rowena Shirtcliff and her husband earlier this year. (She is one brave lady starting a business with a 4 year old and new baby!) The Online Nest stocks products that are made from natural materials, are beautiful, stylish and unique for babies, children and mummies. Many items are organic or eco-friendly. You can find The Online Nest here, and they are also on Facebook. If you would rather place an order over the phone, you can call them on 0427 160 581. You may also see them at markets around the Toowoomba region.
These organic wooden teethers are lovingly handmade from local or sustainable sourced maple, walnut and cherry hardwoods, and sanded until they are silky-smooth. Finished with a blend of homegrown organic camelina oil (a relative of flaxseed) and beeswax, they’re all natural, safe and radiating with good vibes.
The Wooly Weaners jumpers are made from 100% wool, and are fully machine washable! Perfect for your little one on those chilly Toowoomba mornings!
They come in honey, champagne, raw, multicoloured or cognac. As each necklace is handmade, their lengths can vary.
These beautiful blankets are hand-crocheted, and feature contrasting corduroy borders and grosgrain ribbon trim! Perfect for popping over bub while out in the pram, or as an extra blanket on the end of the cot. They come in raspberry or skye blue.
Mums are not forgotten with beautiful items like this votive candle handmade by a mum in Melbourne, filled with natural soy wax, and fragranced with lemon and lavender. Heavenly!
This beautiful vintage Aynsley Bone China teacup has been filled with natural soy wax, and is available with a range of fragrances including cinnamon and vanilla, wine and roses, french pear, sweet pea and vanilla, or pumpkin and maple bread. Each piece is unique!
These Cheeky Britches bamboo blanket are oh, so soft! The Bamboo also allows babies skin to breath whilst holding in warmth and comfort. They are available in two colours- coral and rafter.
How cute is Louis the 100% cotton hand-knitted dog! He even comes with his very own bag!
This wooden robot pathfinder puzzle is great for improving motor skills, co-ordination and concentration. And having fun, of course!

The Online Nest can help you set up a gift registry if you’re having a baby, so that friends and family can easily choose a gift that you will love. They can also arrange gift hampers, and have free delivery for gift basket and hampers to Toowoomba hospitals!
