Our Story

Lalaine Bumpies are the creation of Jane - a former corporate lawyer, turned primary school teacher, turned stay at home mum/maker. Jane's lovely Grandma, Margaret, taught her to sew when she was a young girl, and sewing has always been a passion.

Curious about using wool covers for her first little one, but failing to find a cover that wasn’t made from itchy-and-scratchy wool, Jane embarked on a mission to create the perfect wool cover - one that was functional in keeping her bub dry overnight, but soft and snuggly enough to be placed on that delicate little body. Jane looked high and low for the perfect wool fabric to create her own covers and was overjoyed when she discovered the magic of the Premium ZQ Merino jersey range at The Fabric Store.

After countless hours at the sewing machine and many nights testing out her covers with her first son (aptly named Little Guinea Pig), Jane engaged a group of testers in December 2020 to trial her Bumpies. Since the success of that trial, Jane has been happily making Bumpies for little ones right around Australia. Jane and her husband, James, welcomed their second little one (Teeny Weeny Guinea Pig) to the Bumpy Household in 2021.
