As we mentioned in an earlier post, we have spent ...

Welcome sweet baby Wilkie!
And finally on Saturday the much awaited newest Babyccino baby was born: in the water, surrounded by his family and siblings, there he was: Willem (Wilkie) Sutley Adamo. We are all so super happy and proud, and wish we could just beam ourselves up to Byron Bay to hold him and kiss him and give his mama ...

TUESDAY TIPS
What to pack in your hospital bag
As I wrote last week, we are hoping to welcome our baby at home (there is a big inflatable birth pool in my bedroom as I write this! on the eve of my due date no less!), so I have not even packed a hospital bag. Everything we need for the birth and for the baby ...

Would you let your children watch your birth?
I have always loved the idea of a homebirth -- the thought of staying in the comfort and cosiness of my own space, of lighting candles and playing music, of never having to leave my family, of snacking on food from my cupboards, and of crawling back into my own bed once the baby has ...

What to name our 5th baby?!?
I have four weeks until our baby is due… and we still haven’t made any firm decisions on names. I am sure we are overcomplicating things and being far too picky, however this being our fifth baby, it feels extra difficult to come up with names we love. Also, when you don’t know the gender, it ...

Some thoughts about stretch marks and accepting our 'imperfections'
Pregnancy-related stretch marks are a genetic reality in my family. My mom, who birthed five babies, has them, as did her mother, and I knew the chances were good that I would get them too. When I was pregnant with my first baby I remember using all of the creams and oils on the market ...

PARENTING
Baby gender, orgasmic births and other unsolicited pregnancy advice
I have always really enjoyed the social aspect of pregnancy. I love that a baby bump seems to break down barriers between people, making it easier for strangers to strike up conversation. Pregnancy provides an easy talking point, and one that many people can relate to and enjoy speaking about. Personally, I love talking about ...

Maternity Basics Bundle from Storq
One of my favourite clothing discoveries during this pregnancy has been the wonderful and handy basics bundle from Storq. The bundle, which consists of four wardrobe staples (a simple dress, leggings, skirt and tank) has just what you need for both practicality and comfort. I have been sleeping in the tank, doing yoga in the leggings, and wearing the dress ...

Do you find out your baby's gender?
Being pregnant, one of the first questions people tend to ask is ‘Do you know what you’re having?’ It’s such a natural conversation starter. I know it’s one of the first questions I tend to ask pregnant women I meet as well. The thing I’ve noticed lately is that more often than not, people tend ...

Which foods do you avoid during pregnancy?
This past summer, whilst pregnant and travelling through different European countries, I noticed something intriguing regarding the ‘rules’ of which foods to avoid during pregnancy. It is completely different by country! We started in Italy, where we had been enjoying lots of seafood and shellfish, eating mussels at least twice a week. My approach during ...

Some big news - another baby!
This post has been really difficult for me to write. I’ve stopped and started, procrastinated and deliberated. I’ve thought about it constantly over the past weeks and months. I now realise it’s difficult for me to write this because I have so many different emotions and thoughts swirling through my head. After an amazing adventure ...
