A beautiful group of women to discussed Cultural Richness Around Bringing Up Children, was a really joyful exchange of experience and point of view. Seyi, Kim, Amandine, Africa, Fatima and Lauren shared feelings on the conscious choices we make in a multicultural world. Read more on our blog ... and what do you think ... Do we want the same for our children as we had ourselves? How do we navigate festivals and celebrations with extended and blended family? Have we carried on old traditions or developed new ones with our children to feel festive or community minded, to partake in the celebrations of others or to live seasonally? We’d love to hear your thoughts from our panel. Link in bio. @theshopup @themontessoristudio #babyccinokids photos by @_katrinacampbell_

Last year Courtney discovered @inkandhoneyillustration on the Babyccino portal and immediately fell in love with the sweet personalised baubles. They’re now the most treasured ornaments on our Christmas tree. How sweet! The baubles are now sold out for this year, but the shop will re-open in January, and it’s worth taking a note of these for next year. #babyccinokids @courtneyadamo
