Have a browse and start to create the perfect bedroom for your small person, or find the perfect gift for a new baby or a child's birthday.

I own and run Milk Tooth in Newcastle, NSW, Australia, with the help of my sweet little girl, Sylvia, and her cheeky little brother, Louis. Below is an image of me and Sylvie when she was not quite one-year-old; this was around about the time that Milk Tooth was born.

This is my first real venture in online retailing and I love it. I really enjoy selecting beautiful, quality items that I think other mums and dads will also love. Not to mention it lets me stay at home with my little one. We started up in mid-2014.

I handpick the items sold on Milk Tooth. Many of them are items we have used and loved ourselves, and the rest are items we have wanted to use or would use ourselves, given the chance. So each product comes with a personal recommendation from me. And each item is beautiful in its own right. I've sought out a few categories of items in particular:

  • The first category of focus contains those products that are difficult to buy in Australia. You might have previously been able to order them directly from overseas, but you would've had to pay and wait for international postage. Now you have an Australian supplier. We have products of amazing quality sourced directly from Denmark, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, the United States and Germany, amongst other countries.
  • We also stock some amazing and well-known Australian brands, including Kip & Co, O.B. Designs, Pretty in Pine, and Emondo Kids. We're so proud of these homegrown brands that are producing such beautiful decor and toys and have become household names.
  • Another category we feature is handcrafted items, particularly those made by other work-at-home parents. I find that this sort of product is always made with extra special attention and care and the items are often "one-offs". Inkibabinki is one of my favourite examples.

We  strive to keep our prices competitive. As a part of this, we offer flat-rate shipping of $9.95 per order within Australia, with orders over $95 shipped free throughout Australia. Shipping on orders containing any combination of only small, flat items (Giddy Giddy hair clips, Tattyoo tattoos and Twigseeds greeting cards and gift cards) is just $2. We also offer a free gift-wrapping and gift-sending service.

Above all else, we hope to build a loyal base of customers who enjoy shopping with Milk Tooth and benefit from fun events such as sales, competitions and giveaways.
