Wilkie's favourite books -- a round-up of the best books for toddlers
We have already shared our team's favourite baby & toddler books, which is a wonderful round-up of books for the 0-3 age, but as I was looking at Wilkie's little box of books in his bedroom, I realised there are some favourites in there that haven't been mentioned here before.  Some of them have been ...

Getting to know your baby. Did you know your newborn immediately?
I was recently browsing my Instagram and something interesting struck me. On social media I have seen several mothers say (write), that after the birth of their babies they feel 'they have known their newborns forever'. I personally have never felt that way. I have given birth to five babies over the past thirteen years, and ...

The Micro Beach Wagon -- an excellent companion, even in the city
One of the pesky little things of living in this beautiful city of mine is transport. All my friends who live outside of Paris own a car. The simplicity of jumping into a car and driving to a shop, loading the groceries or bigger items from the trolly to the boot of the car and ...

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 ...

Thursday Thoughts: How old were you when you started your family?
  Living in London, I have always felt like a young mum. I was 24 when Easton was born. I was the youngest mum in my antenatal class and the youngest of all my new mum friends. Even at 32, when Marlow was born, I remained one of the youngest mums in any of the ...

Willaby Clothing
I have recently been introduced to the beautiful Willaby brand and I've become so enamoured with every single piece in the new spring collection. Isn't it all just so gorgeous? The pieces are 'modern yet classic, understated yet out of the ordinary'. A perfect description. The brand was started by designer, Kim Woods, who still runs every aspect of Willaby, ...

Picking daisies (and floral bloomers!)
I recently signed up for a photography course with Lesley Colvin in an attempt to really learn how to use my camera. For years now I've taken decent photos in auto-mode (all thanks to a good camera and some good lenses), but lately I've become frustrated with the photos I'm getting and I decided I ...

Tuesday Tips: Transitioning from one to two...
We've had lots of requests from readers to share tips on dealing with the transition from one child to two (or from two to three, etc.). It's a tricky one for me to answer because it was 8 years ago that my second was born and my memory is foggy, but I wanted to raise the ...

Tuesday Tips: The Dummy Fairy
The 'Dummy Fairy' came to our house last week and flew off with all of Marlow's dummies! And just like that our baby became a 'big girl' (no more bottles, no more nappies, no more dummies!). Marlow went to bed that evening telling all of us that she's a big girl now -- she hopped into ...

Tuesday Tips: Raising Happy Sleepers
As I've written before, it always surprises me how much pressure our society puts on baby sleep. It seems that from the moment babies are born, the questions inevitably roll in from friends, family, co-workers, and even strangers in the supermarket: 'how is he sleeping?', 'how long is he sleeping between feeds?' and even 'is he ...

Sex ed
I have to say I was a bit shocked when my 4-year-old pointed to herself during bathtime and asked, "What is this for?"  I, slightly stunned, replied "That is where babies come out when you are a Mama.  I'll tell you more about it later."  I was proud of myself for not freezing up, but ...

How sometimes a seemingly small transition can make an enormous emotional input... Is your family complete? Shannon is ‘very nearly certain’ her family is complete with two children, and was surprisingly weepy when she moved her 2 year old baby from his crib to a cot bed this weekend. Her baby not a baby anymore — such a bittersweet moment! Sounds familiar? Have there been little changes or transitions that surprised you with their emotional intensity?

The story of the beautiful brand @wunderlang is such a wonderful one. Founder Andrea Lang is SO mindful and SO respectful towards everything life has to offer: ‘I made it my mission to source garments made from natural fibers, which were no longer wearable due to tears or flaws. I set about deconstructing them and making them into children’s clothes. Effectively saving them from the landfill.’ Head over to our blog to read Andrea’s humbling answers to our 5 questions, and get inspired! #reuse #consciousfashion #wunderlang #babyccinokids #babyccinoboutiques #babyccinointerviews
