TUESDAY TIPS
Tuesday Tips: a pretty plaster for every little pain
Since having children I've developed a fun little interest: I pick up cool Band-Aids wherever I find them. Especially when I travel I tend to be on the lookout for new designs. It's a fun little present to bring back to the kids and they are always so happy with them! I like to keep them everywhere. In the kitchen drawer (mostly ...

Organ donation and one mum's incredible story
Last month at our ShopUp event, I had the pleasure of meeting fellow London mum, Louise Hannon. We started talking about children and life in London, and she told me her incredible story about her son's illness, his life-threatening surgeries at Great Ormond Street Hospital and his heart transplant through organ donation. We spoke about organ ...

A Little About the Right Type of Sunscreen
Usually I write about cute clothes, darling shoes, best toys, I even throw in a few recipes and some fun DIYs here and there but today I’d like to talk about something a little more boring but far more important than all that – about choosing the right type of sunscreen. The sunny days that ...

Got to love eggs!
Do your kids love eggs so much too? Ava, our 2 year old, is especially a total egg addict -- she could eat 5 eggs a day if I let her! My mum used to say that eating more than 3 eggs a week was bad for your health, it would be bad for your ...

Toothbeary
Here in the UK we get free dental care when we are pregnant and for a year after the baby is born.  I knew when I was pregnant with my second child that there was something wrong with one of my teeth and I was right -- I needed a root-canal.  Scary!  It had to ...

11-13 weeks scan at the Fetal Medicine Centre
My first two babies were born in London.  Even though I had both of them through the National Health Service system, I went to the Fetal Medicine Centre (FMC), a private clinic on Harley Street in London, for the 11-13 week scans.  Reason is, the founder of the FMC is Professor Kypros Nicolaides, the world's ...

The science of shopping
I'm usually a fashion magazine reader, but lately I've been tempted (while stuck in line at the checkout) to grab the mags that promise easy weeknight dinners or dresses that make you look thinner, like plenty of hurried moms out there.  My latest purchase was the July issue of O Magazine, in which I've discovered ...

What to do?
I’ve got another question for you all seeing as you were so helpful last time. What do you do when your baby can’t shake a cough? Little C has had a cough now for quite a few weeks. It alternates from being dry and chesty to rattly and wheezy. I just spoke to my mum ...

More country differences: caring for the umbilical stump.
My #1 was born in London, and on discharge from the hospital I was told to bathe the baby regularly and that the stump would fall off pretty soon. That's it, simple and practical. Then the midwife who came to our home a couple of times checked on it. #2 was born last week in Milan, and stumps ...

Our dear friend, Kiki Morriss, has recently launched her book ‘Nurturing Your Family with Yoga.’ Kiki went to medical school to become a doctor, and then went on to follow her passion of teaching yoga, setting up a yoga studio in Primrose Hill. In her book, Kiki explains the basics and benefits of doing yoga with your family. She shares practical advice and tips for sharing yoga successfully with your kids, and she offers up an A to Z section of 26 different poses for your children to try. For every pose, she shares instructions, a list of benefits, a visualisation and an affirmation. For some of the poses, there are additional games, breathing exercises, adjustments, reflections and guided meditations. The book is designed for you and your children to open up the book to any page to be inspired. We can’t recommend it enough.

Welcome to our newest #babyccinokidsboutiques on the block! Eco conscious clothing and decor for adventurous kids … Bella + Phoenix! Brand @bella_and_phoenix is created by Debbie Turrell a Sussex based graphic designer/illustrator and mum. From a young age both her children showed an avid interest in the natural world. From rock pooling to finding mini beasties in the back garden, everything would be inspected (not dissected!) and then avidly talked about. Next would come the barrage of questions! It inspired her to come up with the 'Tee of Knowledge’. The clothing is organized into cute themes and children will definitely feel inspired when they are dressed and ready for an afternoon spent amongst nature! Being passionate about ethical production, all the clothing is handprinted to order in Bella and Phoenix Sussex studio on organic cottons, using eco friendly inks. The packaging is recycled and 100% biodegradable too. We hope your little explorers will be inspired!

This gym bag is such a fun and easy project, also for beginners this is a nice sewing project. Esther, Emilie and the kids had so much fun going to the market choosing all the supplies. The fabrics from Little Cube are the cutest!
