29 Sleeps Till Christmas! TummyTie Special!

Rebecca Parker - Wednesday, November 26, 2014


Bellaroo is counting down to Christmas........29 SLEEPS TO GO!

Our first Christmas special is the TummyTie pregnancy clothes expander, reduced from $24.99 to $14.99.

Free shipping on Tummy Tie orders, simply enter XMAS at checkout.

TummyTie® were designed to allow women to continue wearing their own clothes comfortably throughout pregnancy, post pregnancy, fluctuating weight, bloating and menopause.
Unlike anything else on the market, TummyTie’s unique patented design is made from a simple elasticised strip and is fastened to your clothes using the existing button and buttonhole – NO bulky fabric panels needed, as your zipper stays locked in place! The elastic expands with the waistline without restricting you or causing discomfort, the perfect pregnancy clothes expander.
Machine washable, the TummyTie sits flat on your stomach and is simple, discreet, effective and very affordable; making it every woman’s essential wardrobe accessory.
Perfect for every season, and affordable for every woman. Expand your wardrobe and make it a perfect fit with TummyTie.

Features and benefits of TummyTie:

  • Extremely comfortable to wear & easy to use
  • Discreet & classic in appearance
  • The elastic expands with your waistline; the average wear is up to 6 months & post pregnancy using the medium TummyTie, & there is also a large TummyTie included in the pack for later or multiple pregnancy
  • Your pants, skirt and jeans sit flat
  • The unique patented design of TummyTie being threaded through the buttonhole & back over itself eliminates the need for a fabric panel in the front of your pants (it holds the pants together at the top rather than encouraging them to be pulled further apart like other products, & this stops your zipper from going down).
  • The patented design also enables the TummyTie to stretch depending upon how much pressure your tummy is putting on it – so it is perfect for fluctuating weight, in-between sizes, menopausal or post-operative bloating, right through to full term pregnancy; It is extremely versatile
  • High density elastic material means the TummyTie always keeps its shape & strong elasticity and is very durable
  • Designed for front, side and back fastening garments
  • You can also wear the TummyTie the reverse way around on the inside button & buttonhole of your slide fastened pants!


Step 1: Attach one end of the TummyTie to the existing button on your clothes (seam showing)
Step 2: Thread the other end of the TummyTie behind and through the buttonhole
Step 3: Fold back over itself, re-attaching the TummyTie to your existing button

Care Instructions: Cool machine wash, lay flat to dry. Do not dry clean or tumble dry.

Pack Comprises: 2 x medium TummyTie’s in black & white (11cm), 1 x large TummyTie in black (15cm)




Discreet, minimal design and streamlined appearance = simple, effective & aesthetically pleasing when worn

Belts have a bulky and dated design, fabric panels bunch up = uncomfortable, cumbersome and unattractive when worn

High density elastic retains elasticity and shape, extremely durable

Thin quality elastic loses elasticity and stretches out of shape (pants aren’t held up properly); button falls off

Patented design of going through the buttonhole means TummyTie stretches depending upon how much pressure your tummy puts on it = great versatility. TummyTie works if you are bloated through to full term pregnancy

Design of being attached to the button and buttonhole limits effectiveness in early pregnancy when weight gain is moderate (on average first 4-5 months). Common complaint is “it is too big and doesn’t fit”

Small design = prolonged comfort throughout the entire duration of the pregnancy (furthermore, TummyTie sits below the tummy so never causes pressure on the growing baby)

Tummy bands can become too tight and uncomfortable later in pregnancy when the tummy is large, as they cover the entire stomach (increased pressure on the growing baby). Also becomes very hot in warm weather.

Patented design of going through the buttonhole means TummyTie holds the pants together (and flat) at the top, and stops the zipper from slipping down

Belts are designed to encourage the pants to be pulled apart at the top, thus encouraging the zipper to be pulled down, therefore exposing the underwear and skin

TummyTie can be worn the reverse way around on slide fastened pants if they have a button and buttonhole on the inside (and are soft and comfortable against the skin)

Very affordable price is below other products making it an ideal purchase, and great value for money

The majority of women have more than one child. If they have purchased another product previously and disliked it TummyTie is an excellent, effective and affordable alternative product

The Benefits of Baby Wearing

At Bellaroo we have a range of different sling and carrier options available. Whether you are a parent to be, a new Mum or Dad, or the parent of a toddler with an aching back from lugging your wee cherub all over town, you need to read the below!

  1. Sling-babies are documented to cry up to 50% less on average than non-carried babies. In countries where babies are worn in slings, their babies rarely cry because their needs are already met. When our baby is relaxed and happy, we can be too, which makes the adjustment to new parenting a whole lot easier.
  2. They are calmer, and spend more time in a state of 'quiet alertness' Instead of being put in a rocker or other contraption, forced to watch the world but not be a part of it, sling babies get to passively participate in their world. They get to do what mum does, and see what mum sees, from the safety and comfort of their little nest. They can choose to retreat back when it gets a bit much, or look out if they want. They are able to select what they want to look at, and not become over stimulated.
  3. Babies' biological need for body contact and motion is met. Babies love motion, their brains benefit from it, as well as their bodies. Being worn in a sling is great non-contact 'exercise' for babies. Kangaroo Care (baby skin-to-skin on mum's bare chest) is extremely beneficial for wee premmie babies, aiding in their development and survival chances. Babywearing helps babies get over the initial 'shock' of being born into this loud bright cold world. A sling recreates the womb environment, which is extremely comforting for baby. They can hear mum's heartbeat, feel mum's warmth, and move with mum's body- just as they used to do in the womb.
  4. Slings are a great parenting tool. You can have baby quiet and content, and still do your chores/shopping etc. This means parents don't need to be scared of baby having a meltdown at the mall as they are happy and content in their sling. Baby carriers are a great solution to the ‘witching hour’ - you can cook and keep baby happy simultaneously. No more rushed dinners, takeaways or grumpy afternoons. You need no longer dread 4pm!
  5. They have better digestion from the gentle tummy pressure. Notice how reflux and colicky babies love to be upright? It makes sure that the milk and stomach acid stays down where it should, and helps trapped gas come up. Happy baby, happy parents!
  6. Your baby is just happy to be with you. Research indicates that sling babies often become more independent later on than non-carried babies, because they are so secure and confident. Wearing baby close in a sling helps mums and dads to bond with their little ones. It takes the pressure off parents to actively entertain their babies, baby is quite happy doing your activities with you.
  7. Sling-babies can nap anywhere. Sling babies are really convenient - no need to worry about access for the pram, or somewhere for baby to sleep when you're on holiday. Slings just take that stress away.
  8. Breastfeeding is convenient and private in a baby carrier. You have your own private feeding room right with you. Plus, mum can recognise and respond to baby's hunger cues earlier which means less fussing. With baby close, they tend to like feeding more often, which is good for mum's milk supply.
  9. Wearing your baby burns up to around 300 extra calories a day! Wearing your baby in a sling provides as much 'resistance' (or more) as a pair of handweights. So pop that baby on and go for a walk, you will both benefit.



Bellaroo Baby Sling Sale!

Bellaroo Sling sale! All baby pouch slings now $59 for a limited time.

Merino Baby Slings, Cotton Baby slings, stretch baby slings...all $59!




Bellaroo slings are pouch style slings, which means there are no buckles, rings or attachments. They are a simple design and worn folded. Once over your shoulder they create a pocket or 'pouch' that the baby lies or sits in and recreates the feeling of being in the Mothers womb. They are suitable for carrying your newborn right through to when he/she is a toddler.

Baby-wearing has been proven to be a very successful method of settling fussy and unsettled babies, and hugely assists in parent/baby bonding, and it is very convenient too! Also, because they fold up so small, they can easily be taken with you in your handbag or glove box.

Fit is everything!
