Team Favourites: 8 sturdy backpacks we love!
Do you love lists as much as we do? Whenever my eyes scout 'the 5 best..' or 'the 7 healthiest...' somewhere, I just have to read what is written. As if I'd be really, really be missing out on something if I didn't read! As you know, we only share about products we genuinely love here on Babyccino -- ...
GOOD READS FOR MUMS
Parenting without Borders, by Christine Gross-Loh
I recently read a conversation with Christine Gross-Loh in the super cool Lunch Lady magazine about raising kids in different cultures. It's a topic I find fascinating having brought up our girls in places throughout Europe, Africa and in the USA. I've seen so much diversity in childhoods and had so many discussions about parental topics with friends from all nationalities ...
Even though the much-used #dontgrowup or #stopthetime hashtags are obviously meant in a sweet way, they always make me cringe a little. Of course we want our children to grow up -- we want them to flourish surrounded by love and support, to discover the world around them, to develop their own style, to build their characters -- guided by their parents ...
TOYS & GAMES
New (to me!) toy: Tegu Magnetic Blocks
Admittedly, I've spent the past year (blissfully) in a bit of a dark hole when it comes to discovering new toys.

If we need gorgeous party dresses for special occasions like weddings or birthdays (or just pretty clothes for everyday wear), we mamas know where to look! So here at Babyccino, we were super excited to hear about the recent rebrand of ...
Sweet Collections from The Book Jar Company
Last summer I discovered The Book Jar Company through a really sweet image posted on instagram. That's what I love about Instagram - how it connects me to small companies who deserve success. When I looked further into their website I loved everything they do. Owned by husband and wife duo, Jeff and Juliana, their passion for creating ...
Teething -- with two sweet brands
We have a drooly, constantly sticking his hands (plural) in his mouth, six-month-old babe. He's been teething for half of his life now, and still no teeth! Poor bubba. The teething began one day after we flew overseas for the start of our summer holiday. (What timing!) But there was no denying it, teeth are on the way and we needed to comfort him ...
The new Autumn/Winter Collection at Marie Puce
Marie Puce is a Paris-based brand we have loved and worked with for years and years. Their wide collection offers beautiful, timeless clothing for babies up to teens -- and in true French style, they also have a beautiful collection of coordinating accessories to compliment the clothing (from cute mouse wallets to pretty scarves & bandanas to the sweetest ...
