Dreambaby® Insect Netting review + giveaway

When I was pregnant one of the things on my list to get was a netting cover for my port-a-cot. It's not something you'd typically think of, but having 3 cats I wanted a netting cover so bub could have day sleeps in there without them deciding to jump in with her. I also wanted it to keep them out of the port-a-cot overnight so it wasn't full of cat hair when we got up.

You wouldn't believe how hard it was for me to find a port-a-cot that came with netting. We ended up getting a really expensive brand just so we could get the netting with it. Luckily these days you can get the netting by itself, which is so much cheaper {and easier}.

DREAMBABY® PLAY-YARD INSECT NETTING

Dreambaby® have designed a new play-yard insect netting to protect your children from insects {or nosey cats} and its only $14.95. The Dreambaby® play-yard insect netting is perfect for outdoor use as well. If you want to take the port-a-cot outside so baby gets some fresh air, you can rest assured baby won't get bitten by any mosquitos or be bothered by flies.

The insect netting is made from soft, durable mesh and is big enough to fit over most port-a-cots. The elastic edge allows for a snug fit around the bottom of the port-a-cot. Its also easy to wash and comes with a re-usable storage pouch. You can see how easy it is to use in the video below.




DREAMBABY® TRAVEL SYSTEM INSECT NETTING


In addition to the port-a-cot netting, Dreambaby® have also created the Travel System Insect Netting which contains two different insect nets which are perfect for when you're out and about. Living in QLD we spend a lot of time outside, but summer also means mosquitos so I don't take bub outside some days for fear she'd be eaten alive, but now I can. The travel system includes two different sized nets, one that's perfect for prams and a smaller one that fits over baby capsules. Both have elastic edging to ensure a snug fit to stop mosquitos or flies getting in.
The larger pram netting fits most brands of prams and easily fitted over my Wanderer pram. Its simple to put on and easy to tuck in over the edges to get a secure fit. The pram netting is also large enough to be used to cover the top of most port-a-cots.


The travel system netting is made from the same sot, durable mesh as the play-yard netting to allow for air circulation whilst in use. It's easy to wash and comes with a re-usable storage pouch as well. The travel system {baby capsule netting + pram netting} is $19.95.

Dreambaby® products can be purchased online or at Big W, Target, Kmart, Bunnings, Baby Bunting, Toys R Us and a number of other baby stores and chemists.

  1. Ideal for this time of year. Dora got munched in the backyard this week so the mozzie are definitely out in force here. Thanks for sharing at the 3WWU and putting up with my typos. I published a draft but hopefully all better now.

    1. Yea the mozzies get pretty bad here too especially in the afternoon {which is the time she always wants to be outside}.

  2. We live in rural nsw and the flies out here are so persistant! Poor bub gets so frustrated in the pram on our walks she would easily have 20 or 30 flies hanging around in there with her

  3. These look so handy for the hot months ahead and I love that it actually covers the entire pram/ cot rather than having gaps!

    1. Yea I'm really impressed that it covered the whole pram. The wanderer is pretty big and it still covered all around it with the canopy extended or pushed back.

  4. Ahh yes. I would have liked one of these for the pram back in the day. We had an absolutely gorgeous net for the cot though. It hung from the ceiling and had pastel coloured ribbons coming down from it :)

  6. I would love this to help keep the flies off my 7month old. Unfortunately she inherited my terrible hay fever, and runny nose + flies is not a great combination. Joni Langos

    1. Oh it would be great for camping! I didn't think of that because I don't do camping lol.

  9. Because the poor kids are exactly like me, and react terribly to mozzie bites. Really restricting being outdoors in the evenings when it's warm and the little biters are rampant. (Ern)

  11. This insect travel system will be ideal for when we travel back to Malaysia to visit family and friends. It can protect my kids from nasty mosquito bites and potentially saving their lives from the deadly dengue fever.

  12. Insects, fly's, spiders, everywhere i don't want my child to be bitten or swallow any bugs

  13. We'd like to be able to go for walks in the cool afternoons which unfortunately is when the mozzies are out too, so this would be fantastic for baby's pram.

  14. We could go for a stroll to the park without any worry, that'd be one less on my mind.

  15. Where I live (country NSW) the flies are HORRENDOUS! Really bad, it almost deters me from taking the kids outside to play. But I do. It's the 7 month old perched up in the stroller that I worry about - she can't shoo the flies on her own so I have to remain vigilant! A net over my stroller would be FAB. I used to have one but it got tossed when we moved and was getting a bit ratty anyway.

  16. We are having such a bad year with the mozzies this year.
