Stress management tips for working mums

Stress is an inevitable part of being a working mum. Balancing work and family is no easy feat! But just because stress is inevitable doesn’t mean there is nothing you can or should do about it. Because stress can have negative effects on your body and behaviour, including headache, stomach upset, chest pain, insomnia, irritability and […]

Bath temperature thermometers for babies

Using the right bath temperature for babies is very important. Infants cannot regulate their body temperature like adults, so it is important that the bath water is not too hot and not too cold. Bath time is also an intimate bonding moment between parents and children, so you want to make sure your baby is comfortable and […]

Letting your baby cry it out

First-time parents often cannot resist rushing to their baby’s side when he or she starts to cry. This is good! After all, crying is a baby’s first form of communication. A child’s tears tell mummy and daddy that “I’m hungry”, “I need a new nappy” or “I feel ill” in place of speech. But when […]

‘Swaddle Love’: Swaddling tips for new parents

Autumn seems to be the season for new babies. We always know more than a few people who have just had a baby or who are due to give birth come this time of year. That means lots of baby shower and christening presents for us to shop for! I adore shopping for newborns – all […]

Children’s pocket money: Getting it right

The new school year is under way, bringing with it new teachers, new subjects, new extracurricular activities and the yearly pocket money negotiations – yes, I do mean negotiations! I think my children Tom and Mary gang up on me every autumn before we discuss pocket money for the next school year.  They always have plausible […]

Postcards from the edge

Holidays with children. Are they worth the hassle? I slave over travel websites, pest call reservations desks with increasingly bonkers enquiries (are there coco pops on the breakfast buffet? Does the villa kitchen have a blender?) and spend bucketfuls of cash in the quest to bask in joyful family time somewhere that isn’t our house, […]

They can’t be twins – they don’t look the same!

Most twins are fraternal, which means two eggs, two separate sacs – a little like ordinary siblings who happened to be conceived and born at the same time.  Yet, because identical twins are the ones that people notice, those folk who are slightly clueless about twins find it very hard to believe that somebody can […]

How do you tell them apart?

The trouble with having identicals is that your very own kin – even close family – can’t tell them apart, and yet complete strangers will stand in the street and argue with you that they’re not identical. Fact is, you can’t say for sure whether twins are identical – even monochorionic ones (twins that share […]

Sleep easier with baby movement monitors

It wasn’t too long ago that baby monitors were very basic technology. The monitors did nothing but transmit sound, and even that they sometimes did not do so well, with the crackles and pops of the speaker often mixing in with your baby’s gurgles and coos. But as technology has become smarter, so have baby […]

Tips for fun and stress-free family holidays

Tom and Mary are now settled back in school after the summer, but half-term is just around the corner. I need to plan a mini-break! I like my children to spend the first half of their mid-term holiday at home, then we take a two- to three-day trip somewhere that both mummy and children can […]

Post-It Notes be gone! Tips for better organisation

Being a working mum means having an endless to-do list. Between work, the children, food shopping, budgeting, housework, family and friends, it’s impossible to keep it all in my head. But a fridge covered in Post-It Notes reminding you to do this and that is a recipe for disorganization. Believe me, I’ve tried it! The […]

Sunday Rose Kidman Urban

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban say they would leave behind movie sets and music any day of the week to spend time with their sweet 5-year-old Sunday Rose Kidman Urban. The eldest child of the Australian power couple is as affectionate as her parents, quick to give a hug or a kiss to her doting […]

Teaching children money management skills

Teaching children money management skills while they are young is extremely important. As a working mum, your strong work ethic already sets a good example for your children to follow. But giving your kids ongoing responsibilities with money such as household chores will help them develop a healthy financial philosophy, and they will be more likely […]

Travelling by car with a baby on board

Car journeys with a baby can be a stressful experience for first-time parents. The sights and sounds of traffic can be stressful for your baby, too! With cars honking, tyres screeching, motors revving and traffic whizzing by, it’s no wonder some babies become unsettled. But there are certain things mum and dad can do to make travelling […]
