The Big Questions on Pregnancy
Tila is deeply, strongly and firmly in the “WHY WHY WHYYYY and WHY?” stage. She just wants to know everything in great details. And recently she asked me two questions that made me clear my throat. The first one was how did a baby get into my tummy and the second one was where exactly ...

New Hatch Fall collection!
We're nearing the end of summer... and we will miss it! Those juicy watermelons, the long days on the beach and the perfect picnics in the park. But, drinking hot chocolate after a long walk in the forest, and curling up cosy with the kids in front of the fireplace also has its charm! Seeing ...

ColorQuarry -- original letterpress announcements
Sending birth announcements is a wonderful tradition. Here in the Netherlands, one of the first things we do after a baby is born is to let the printer know what the name, weight and time of birth of the baby is so that the birth announcement can be printed and sent out as soon as ...

Hatch -- relaxed and stylish fashion for mamas
I loved wearing Hatch clothing when I was pregnant. It is such a cool and stylish collection, and the pieces are so easy to wear and care for. I loved it so much, that after my pregnancy I continued to wear the pieces, which made the initial investment of getting them so worth it! This ...

When Murielle was expecting her second child, and was preparing her hospital bag, she was looking for one place where she could find the most practical and beautiful bedding and clothing for her soon to be born baby. And unsuccessfully so! Thus, ...

HATCH, new spring collection
When Esther and I were in NYC last month, we stopped into the super stylish HATCH studio in Soho for a meeting with the impressively chic founder/designer, Ariane Goldman.  She gave us a piece-by-piece tour through their collection, showing us the swanky new spring/summer items. Stylish, chic, swanky: three words that sum up the HATCH ...

Boob design to the rescue!
There's something so contradictory about the first weeks after giving birth. Of course there is that wonderful, magical feeling of bliss -- the birth, that beautiful, earthy smell, seeing and holding your baby for the first time, admiring every detail of him (her), spending your days on the couch, in bed, being so proud, feeling ...

Pregnancy Yoga with Nadia
I had never done yoga before... until I found myself at 32 weeks pregnant with a breech baby. A good friend (and fellow pregnant mama) recommended I try yoga, both for the physical benefit as well as to calm my mind and find a sense of peace with my pregnancy and baby.  I figured I ...

38 weeks pregnant and thankful for Koka Mama
I have gotten to the point in my pregnancy where the only thing I can comfortably wear are leggings. (I had a funny conversation with my 7-year-old the other day where he asked me why I always take him to school in my 'pyjamas'. I told him they weren't my pyjamas, they were 'leggings' and ...

On the brink of giving birth we asked our super talented photographer friend Sue Cowell to shoot some photos of pregnant me with my family. It is, after all, my last pregnancy! I really like the outcome of the shoot -- I love how natural Sue's style is, the moments she captures are just full of ...

Something old, something new...
The bed for baby is ready! Set up in our bedroom, waiting, waiting... The one very special thing about this little bed is the sheet that was embroidered by my late grandmother in the 1940s of last century, for the birth of my mother (her oldest daughter). It's 70 years old! I love that little ...

The pregnancy 'club'
Being in the final stages of pregnancy, walking around with a nice plump bump, I'm reminded of that wonderful, sweet secret of pregnancy: there is some sort of unspoken yet certainly acknowledged 'club' that pregnant women belong to. Other pregnant women will always acknowledge you, even if it's just in their eyes, and you feel ...

I recently got some photos taken with my kids by the talented Sara Welch when I was home in the US this summer. Because I'm usually the one behind the camera it's rare to find a photo of me with my kids, so it's a special treat to have these photos. It's also sort of ...

Bouncing boobs, and better bras
My fourth pregnancy, my poor boobs. The last 7 years, they've gone from a nice, average C cup to an enormous size F (no kidding), and after breastfeeding periods (having to endure engorgement and nipple cloves and the like) back to pitiful creations barely having the chance to recover from it all or hey, there ...

Many brands are working in a more eco-conscious way these days. Small steps are taken, sometimes big ones, and it is necessary and good. But Ester, the founder of @dinki_human , goes one step further in ensuring her collection is sustainable, natural and fair. When creating her brand, she defined a strong brand ethos: designing and manufacturing with integrity and respect for ALL people AND the planet. These are not just hollow words or a marketing trick — Ester has very carefully ensured it. So read our blog today abs learn more! @estherbabyccino #sponsored #babyccinokids #babyccinowears

When both of my kids broke out in uncontrollable laughter as I read Eletelephony by Laura E. Richards, I knew we had a winner! Do your children love poems and can they recite any by heart? Today on our blog @slcorlis shares an interesting New York Times article on the value of memorizing poetry, which historically was very common (before the invention of writing, it was the only way to possess a poem) but has mostly fallen out of favor in more recent times (why bother memorizing something when you can simply call it up on your phone at a moment’s notice?). It speaks about the value of diligent work and the benefits that come from challenging ourselves, and also of the way the repetition involved in memorizing draws you closer to words and their meaning, and to the broader world of literature and human experience. What about you? Do you remember reciting poems from memory as a child? And finally, do share any poetry collections you’ve loved reading as a family. ️ #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads

LOLA Art Boxes are the most wonderful way to introduce creativity in your family. Every month, the talented @lotsoflovelyart team assembles everything you need to create three artist-inspired projects, including an introduction to the artist, recommendations on books or artworks to discover and galleries to visit, plus of course ALL the high quality materials you need to make a true masterpiece. Ava loved this craft project so much, and a subscription to LOLA art boxes is the number one thing she is asking for Christmas! You can buy the one-off boxes, but also choose to get one delivered to you every month (or two months). There are boxes for children aged 6 plus, but also ones that are perfect for smaller children (3+). The craft ideas are always original and clever, the materials are of great quality, and every detail is thought of and included. These boxes are a great gift! If you are in London for the ShopUp in two weeks, you can meet the LOLA team personally and check out their amazing boxes in person. They will be there both days!! @theshopup @estherbabyccino #sponsored #art #artforkids #makeart #babyccinocrafts
