Do the Mummy's Monsters Mash
Today, I had chance to met up with Shelly Sweeper, Founder of Mummy's Monsters. Over a coffee we discussed her Mum-Entrepreneur business for Mums and Bubs.

Mum's have enough to do with a new baby and Shelly has taken her real-life experience of being a working mother and put it into making products that really do help.

This is what I found out during my interview with Shelly Sweeper, Mum-Entrepreneur and Founder of Mummy's Monsters Boutique Accessories for Mums and Bubs.

Mummy's Monsters was officially 'born' in August 2013 when Shelly decided to take her hobby and create her own business. Her business, Mummy's Monsters was developed when, after having her third baby she wanted to do something with her life that was in line with her passion. Shelly loves to create and sew.

Lucky for us that she has as this Mum-Entrepreneur has created her own boutique style items for mums on the go.

The range consists of:

* Nappy Clutch - which was designed and made by Shelly.

She fits a couple of nappies, a change of clothes and wipes into this versatile clutch and heads out shopping or to visit without lugging a huge nappy bag around with her. Shelly told me that when she had her children that she was tired of having to cart all this luggage with her, so seeing a need, she came up with her own way to solve the the problem. The great thing is that this solution can benefit women everywhere.

Nappy Clutch now comes with a handle that has a snap lock button on it to help parents keep hold of the dummy when bub is not in need of it. What an awesome idea!

Shelly told me that some of her customers have several Nappy Clutches and Wipe Cases in various locations so that all they need to grab when they want to go out is a bottle and a change of clothes.

* Wipe Cases - these are designed to hold Huggies wipes or other if you so desire. They are very versatile cases that are individually created by Shelly and can be used in the Nappy Clutch too.

* Nursery Baby Wipe Cases - these are designed to match any decor for the nursery and hold a large number of baby wipes so that when the need arises, wipes are ready to go!

* Burp Bibs - beautifully made cotton covered and soft lining bibs for throwing over the shoulder. If bub gets sick the burping bib will catch the projectile and keep your clothes clean(er).

* Diamond Shaped Breast Feeding Covers - designed and made from cotton fabric, double layers and top stitched with great care by Shelly. These breast feeding covers have a velcro neck loop to hold them in place and they are light enough to be cool for both mum and bub in Summer and keep things modest too. They are great all year around.

We met over Facebook through a friend and I was so impressed with her Australian-made products specifically designed for mums with new bubs that I had to meet her.

I was so impressed and I know that if I come across any new mums-to-be, I will certainly be recommending these products.

In fact, the boutique range from Mummy's Monsters are great gift ideas for baby showers too.

These clutches and wipe cases could also be used for anyone who needs to keep sanitary wipes or personal care items discreet.

You can order your very own matching clutch and wipe cases directly from Mummy's Monsters website. Or if you have a specific theme in mind, send Shelly an email via their Contact Us Page and I am sure that something could be worked out.

This is an Australian Owned and Made Boutique business by an awesome Mum-Entrepreneaur. Shelly takes great pride in her range and carefully makes each piece herself. She also sources her cotton materials locally in Brisbane and surrounds too and has a passionate desire to support local business as much as possible.

All items are machine washable, except the wipe cases. However, they can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth.

Congratulations Shelly on seeing a need for Mum's out there and providing them with options that you have tired and tested yourself!
