Slow-Baked Organic Cookies from Farm Brothers
Back in December my husband and I whisked ourselves away for a few days to spend our wedding anniversary in Amsterdam. We stayed at The Hoxton hotel which by the way I can totally recommend! Each afternoon we'd relax in their restaurant and I'd drink pots of tea reading the paper. Now my only reason for ordering more and more tea ...

Dr Hauschka Sage and Mint Deodorant
For years I have been testing organic, non-toxic deodorants as I, like a lot of you, have been reading about how bad normal deodorants are for us. The problem is: I have never found one that actually works! And I do like smelling good, so that was a bit too much of a stumbling block ...

Odette Williams new collection
We met Odette Williams in New York a few years ago, when she was just starting her line with adorable kids aprons and cooking sets. We've since remained in touch as she is such a lovely lady, and her products are so beautiful and well made, and really capture the essence and innocence of childhood. ...

Casper, potty training (and a sweet onesie from Piupia)
Unlike his girlfriend Marlow, who basically potty trained herself when she was 1 ½ year old, Casper isn't into the potty thing at all. When his daycare decided a few weeks ago that now that he's 2, the time is ripe for him to be potty trained, I agreed to give it a go. We've potty trained all ...

Organic cotton knitwear from Miou Kids
So often these days, as you look around at children's brands, you see so many things that look alike. One trend inspires the other, people naturally draw inspiration from the same things... and you end up with lots of clothes that look the same. Which is why it's so fun to see brands doing their ...

I have just recently discovered this adorable Spanish brand of clothing for babies. The lovely owner, Ana, of B by White recently sent a few items for Marlow and they are just adorable! You can really see the love and attention that goes into making each piece, and her package came perfectly wrapped and presented. ...

Baby Bear Shop organic bath!
Marlow still fits in our laundry room deep sink and it's my favourite way to bathe her. No crouching over, no wasting water, and having her up at my level makes it easier to wash and rinse her. (I think it's her favourite way to be bathed too - she always points at the sink ...

Estella Organic Cotton Collection
Summer has finally arrived here in Europe -- school is out and the weather has been warm and wonderful! My kids have been spending an awful lot of time running around in their undies, and the baby in a simple onesie or bloomers. Easy peasy! I just picked up some sweet little summery pieces from ...

Une Sardine à Rio - Kimono Jacket
I remember when my kids were small I could put anything and everything on them and no one ever complained -- the good old times. Now, 4 and 7 respectively, the caveats alongside the rules of dressing are longer than the bill of rights. Dresses, leggings, no tights, no bulky socks and only cardigans, no ...

Manduca carrier
I have always been a huge fan of the Baby Bjorn carriers. I still have the same one we bought when our first baby was born, more than 7 years ago. I just love how simple it is -- how easy it is to put on and strap baby in. But, I must admit I've ...

Toto Knits, Organic knitwear from Kenya
I am loving the new collection at Toto Knits! The lovely wintery hues, the sweet little bonnets, hoods and scarves, the stripy jumpers... all so cute!

L'asticot at Boutikids
I have recently discovered the new Swiss childrenswear label, L'asticot, and I am so impressed! Not just by their interesting and unique style, but by the story and ethics behind the brand. L'asticot is a brand of organic clothing which is as beautiful as it is functional. Many of the pieces are unisex -- meant ...

Fable baby & nursery is, thanks to Pinterest, my newest Etsy discovery. Every little thing is cute and useful in this shop.

Organic cotton underwear from GoatMilk
My 7-year-old recently asked me if he could start wearing boxer briefs instead of his regular underpants. I think my poor heart skipped about three beats! Here was my little boy... the one who has never before cared about his underwear... suddenly asking for 'grown up' versions. I wasn't sure if he was hoping to ...

Katvig
I do admire the Scandinavian love for bright, crisp colors and simple, sweet shapes. They also often have a much more forward thinking outlook on the environmental impact of their clothing than us mainland Europeans. The Danish label Katvig takes sustainability very seriously. Their whole collection is made out of high quality organic or recycled fabrics. ...

Summer holidays! If you follow Esther and Emilie on Instagram, you’ll have seen a few happy photos of their two families together in France! It’s a sweet summertime tradition for them. Being on the opposite side of the world, I will admit it makes me feel extra far away and sad to miss out on these wonderful get-togethers. The kids are all growing up so quickly — I couldn’t believe how tall and grown-up Emilie’s girls have gotten. And speaking of tall — I’m pretty sure Esther now has at least two kids who are taller than I am. Like an old granny would do, I’m pretty sure I’d squeeze their cheeks and tell them all I remember holding them in my arms when they were just one day old!!! Anyway, we’re taking a couple of weeks off from blogging to allow Esther, Emilie and all of our wonderful contributors some time to enjoy a bit of summer holiday family time. We hope you’re doing the same! See you back here in a couple of weeks. Courtney xx @estherbabyccino @emiliebabyccino @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids

Fancy an easy-peasy, delicious, light, fudgy chocolate sponge cake? Easy enough to rustle up with a 3-year-old’s help too. It’s gluten-free for starters, vegan, and nut free too. 🤎 You won’t need any fancy kit, the preparation time is around 10 minutes, there’s no whipping, melting, or soaking overnight, and you won’t need to source any wacky ingredients from the health food shop. It’s also a robust enough recipe to work as either cupcakes, a sponge cake, or even a loaf. So visit our new blog post and get baking! @beesbakery #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats
