Bedtime for baby: developing a sleep schedule

One of the main complaints of parents with a newborn is the lack of a baby’s sleep schedule. A fussy or colicky baby will have mum and dad up all night! Although the first year or so is difficult, there are steps that you can take to get into sync with your baby’s routine preferences […]

P is for Planning/Perspective

P is for Planning Perspective In my humble opinion, the alphabet should start with the letter P. ‘Why?’ I hear you ask. Well, because P stands for planning, and most things that end well start with a plan of some sort. Planning through pregnancy is important, and I’m sure it will become increasingly so, the […]

Congratulations to Jessica Simpson’ and Eric Johnson’ newest arrival, Ace Knute Johnson! How do you think Maxwell Drew Johnson, the couple’s first-born, will handle the shared attention?

Healthy food for kids: swapping ready meals for home-made healthy food can be easy

I was already a working mum when I got my big promotion at work last year. The kids were 8 and 10 and hearty eaters, but my schedule became so hectic that there was no time to cook healthy food for kids from scratch in the evening. The perfect solution? Ready-meals… …or so I thought! […]

How new fathers can bond with their babies

Throughout their pregnancy, labour and first months of nursing a baby, mothers receive healthy doses of oxytocin, a hormone responsible for the strong love and tight bond between mother and child. Fathers, on the other hand, do not have such a strong physical pull towards their children. Their initial reactions to children are varied. My […]

The cloth nappy conundrum

In a time where convenience is king, many mums choose disposable nappies when rearing their toddlers. I have to admit that sometimes it may be tempting to be able to throw those products away, but I would recommend giving cloth nappies a chance. I have met many first-time parents who were slightly torn as to […]

Mommy Brings Home the Bacon

I have just read this great book by an American woman, Nikki Mark, called “Mommy Brings Home The Bacon”, and I really recommend you read it with your kids – you will all enjoy it! It’s a children’s book exploring the relationship between a young boy and his working mum, told from the child’s perspective. […]

Harper Seven Beckham

Just turned two years old this month, Harper Seven Beckham is already a huge star. She is the fourth child of football star David Beckham and Victoria, a.k.a. Posh Spice. She’ll probably be quite the sports fan as an adult and already attends quite a few matches! As to be expected, she watched in delight […]

The Swaddling Basics

The tender act of swaddling has been a tradition in my family for generations. My grandmother swaddled my mum, she swaddled me, I swaddled my infants, and so forth. This simple tender act is a wonderful way for parents to protect their newborns and help them to sleep. Here are four things you should know […]

The five characteristics of a perfect pushchair

Buying a buggy can be a big decision! Most parents must think for a few weeks before purchasing the perfect pushchair ahead of their little one’s arrival. There are so many makes and models, that it can be extremely difficult to choose just the right one. First-time parents often leave stores with their heads spinning […]

Games for kids on a rainy day

We all know the feeling… waking up on a bank holiday, ready to enjoy that “extra” day with the family, and it’s raining! Forget about that bike ride in the country or picnic at the beach. So how do we keep the kids entertained and ourselves sane? I have a lot of good ideas for […]
