Wow! We are so excited, can you believe it’s been 5 years since we opened Starfish Babes!?
It all began after having my daughter treated with a Pavlik Harness for mild hip dysplasia when she was just 14 weeks old. I found it difficult to find any suitable clothing which wasn’t too restricting and hindering the effectiveness of the brace. So the first ever Starfish Babes sleeping bag was made – just for her!
3 years later, having handmade in excess of 750 Sleeping Bags, we literally could not keep up. So we made the decision to outsource, which meant we could then have them independently quality tested and tog rated.
They are now available in 2.5 Tog Winter and 1 Tog Summer in the same great extra wide shape to accommodate all DDH and Clubfoot Braces and Casts. Our Range has grown and evolved over the past 5years to include Brace Covers, HD and Clubfoot Milestone Cards, Hippy Tees and more.
We love that Starfish Babes gives us the privilege of being a part of the hippy and clubfoot communities, sharing our customers pics and stories to help raise awareness and give hope to families of the newly diagnosed babes. For a number of years now Starfish Babes have been fortunate to work with Healthy Hips Australia, with their initial release of the “Healthy Hip Kits” and most recently on fundraising activities including the Green Hip Hip Hooray Tees and last year’s Healthy Hips Australia Socks for Healthy Hips Day. We are grateful to our amazing customers for their support and are super excited for what’s to come.
