Hello and welcome to My Loxxi!
We are Lina and Shantel, both first time mamas and co-founders of My Loxxi. We both gave birth to our cuties a few weeks apart back in 2018, and have been doing this new journey of motherhood together. It’s been filled with lots of highs and some major tantrums, but obviously we wouldn’t trade it for the world. Our new reality has given us an insight and purpose and inspired us to start My Loxxi.
The first year of bubs life is insane! Babies go through so much (sleep regressions, feeding, solids, naps, teething, leaps, developmental milestones, crawling, walking, exploring, making noises, and the endless list of learning), and it is so easy for mums to get lost in all of that. All of this made us want to create space to empower, support and bring comfort to mamas navigating this new season with bub. Whether you're a first time mum, second, third, fourth etc. Bringing a new bub home can be challenging, all while wrapped in a beautiful bubble. So we want you to know, while you are putting everything into supporting bub, we’re supporting you! We know it is hard to make time four yourself, which is why we fill our boxes with products to help you squeeze it in. They are practical, easily accessible, no thinking involved and self-care focused. Mama you matter, and we’re making sure you know it.
Who we WERE to who we are NOW:
The idea for My Loxxi started when both our kids were going through a leap stage (developmental milestone - check out the Wonder Weeks app for more info on leaps). We joked that instead of getting a notification from the app of when our toddlers were going to go through a leap, we would've definitely preferred a drink! Something to say, "Hey, this is going to be tough, embrace yourself and remember it will end." The more we joked, the more we realised that this would actually be a great idea! We took the leap (get it? haha) and made it official while both our families were stuck overseas during COVID 2020 (yep, that happened?!).
Our boxes used to be delivered in line with bubs leap stage. We've now been operating for almost a year, and we've had many mamas share how they would love to get our boxes more often and not just during leap stages. So here we are, switching it up!
We're now going to send self-care boxes to you at the start of every month, because let's face it, leaps aren't the only tough things our babies go through. This means more boxes, more often. You will now get info in your box related to what you may see that month with your bub, and they are now called "What to expect" cards. They are based on all the different challenges that happen month to month in the first year of life.
We are so grateful to receive such honest feedback. Our mamas are at the top of our list so finding out what is important to you has helped us shape My Loxxi. We want to equip and help mums out there still learning to make self-care a routine in their life. So more boxes now mean we can help more mums, more frequently!
Excited to have you join this journey of motherhood with us!
Lots of love!
Lina and Shantel
