Surrounded by tropical islands, immaculate rice terraces, volcanoes, and pristine beaches, let's escape the chilly winter and fly to the beautiful Philippines to meet our little sunshine, our February Bean Of The Month - Baby Yssiah! This 2-month-old in our boba swaddle seems to be making everyone fall in love with his adorable puppy eyes! Thank you Mommy Alyssa (@itsaleessuh) for sharing her genuine tips on motherhood and her favourite moments with Yssiah Bean!
Meet Yssiah Bean who just turned 2
TWB: Where are you from and can you tell us a little bit more about your family?
@itsaleessuh: We are from the Philippines. We are first time parents, so everything that we do is actually like getting to know this little person of ours.
Baby Yssiah is a precious firstborn of mommy Alyssa
TWB: What is your favourite product from The Wee Bean and why?
@itsaleessuh: The swaddles! So far we have 4 swaddles from you. We really like it because of the organic cotton. Plus, we can use it for other purposes. For example, it can be a blanket and cover while breastfeeding my baby, it's not just a swaddle.
TWB: What are your must-have items that you would recommend for first time moms?
@itsaleessuh:The must have items will definitely be swaddles, cotton baby onesies, nursing pillow and burp cloths.
TWB: What is your favourite activity with your baby?
@itsaleessuh:My husband and I like talking with our baby, not only because we enjoy it, but it’s also a great way to help with brain development of my baby.
TWB: What are the most baby-friendly places to go in your city?
@itsaleessuh:The malls here, but we usually don't go out to avoid contact with other people for the safety of our baby.
TWB: After a long day, what’s your favourite way to unwind?
@itsaleessuh: I really like taking candid photos of my baby. Sometimes I visit different shopping websites.
TWB: Your best tip/advice on motherhood?
@itsaleessuh: I have a lot of advise for Momma’s out there but my favorite would be "what babies need more than anything is a present and self-aware Mama who is gentle and grounded" and "know that you’re doing AMAZING."
We're absolutely thrilled to introduce our September Bean Of The Month, Hugo Ollie, who is already stealing hearts left and right at 7-months old. Hailing from the picturesque Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Hugo's family is nothing short of remarkable, with four golden retrievers, a tuxedo cat, and his 11-year-old big brother, Ronan. That's quite a unique family dynamic, and the love between the boys and their pets is simply heartwarming.
You might have seen muslin cloth in a variety of places, from high-fashion runways to your local baby clothing store. But what is muslin, and why is muslin clothing so well-loved?

It's the fabric of choice for designers, parents, and homemakers alike, but why?
