Soothing a crying baby

As a first-time parent, one of the first things you will have to learn is how to soothe your baby when he or she is crying. The first step to soothing a crying baby is to find out why he or she is crying. It can be a challenge, like learning another language! For new parents, […]

Making sure a working mum’s children don’t feel neglected

Time flies when you are a busy working mum. We begin the week making promises to spend more time with family, but before we know it, the entire week has slipped by, and we’ve spent most of our time not with your children, but with work. Whether you are working out of financial necessity or […]

Baby floor seats with back support

Our daughter Hannah loved to be held as an infant, which is why Chris and I invested in a baby ring sling to free up my hands so that I could do things around the house while still having her close. But even with my hands free, there are simply some things for which I […]

Beating the bedtime blues: How to get your children to sleep

Beating the bedtime blues is a challenge for many parents. I should know! My kids Tom and Mary have given me many headaches at bedtime, particularly in their first year at school. It’s common sense that a newborn needs a consistent sleep schedule, but toddlers and school-age children also need a regular bedtime routine if tears and tantrums are […]

Effective and humane ways to discipline your children

Parenting, while a joy most days, can be challenging for first-time parents faced with a naughty child. Your patience may wear thin and you may feel overwhelmed or frustrated, especially if your child continues on with his or her bad behaviour. It is important to humanely discipline your children, but it is just as important for parents […]

This celebrity kid sports a winning combination of dark eyes, strong brows and a warm smile to match Jessica’s. Born on June 7, 2008, Honor is couple’s eldest daughter. Though she may have inherited her […]

Staying positive as a working mum

With everything that we working mums must juggle, staying positive can be difficult. When you’re tired, stressed, and haven’t had any me time in ages, of course it’s hard to maintain a good attitude! But it’s important to fight negativity because negative thinking can easily grow into negative situations, which can translate into unnecessary problems for […]

Finding a reliable baby-sitter

It had been a long couple of weeks. Being a working mum to two young boys is exhausting! Thank goodness that the weekend was finally here, and I had some long-awaited me time planned for my husband and I – dinner and a movie – and a baby-sitter booked to look our sons at home. […]

Jackson Theron

It seems that South African-born actress Charlize Theron knew years before she adopted her son Jackson Theron that he would one day be a part of her life. Charlize, who has been open about her life-long desire to have a family, revealed to Madison magazine: “My mother found [a letter I wrote]. It said, ‘Would […]

A Monster Ate My Mum

A friend of mine , Jen or @intinctivemum ,  who I met through  twitter, had written a poem to try and verbalise what PND meant to her and as a way of explaining to her young children what it felt like to experience such a debilitating illness. It grew from there and took on a […]

A first-time parents’ guide to cleaning the nursery

As many first-time parents soon find out, little babies are particularly good at making big messes. This means your nursery can harbour all kinds of germs in its nooks and crevices, which can make cleaning the nursery a daunting task for worried new parents. Parents shouldn’t work themselves into a tizzy over sanitizing anything and […]

Should working mums feel guilty?

As a working mum, you trade hours with your children for hours at the office. Whether we are working for financial reasons, for the love of the job, or both, we working mums feel guilty from time to time for our choice. I know I do! As long as we remain loving, hands-on mothers to […]

Non-contact thermometers for children

Our nearly 3-year-old daughter Hannah caught the flu or something like it a few months ago. She was miserable, and Chris and I as first-time parents were equally miserable, forced to watch our little one feel ill and uncomfortable. After coming home from the doctor with a prescription for fluids and bed rest, we tried […]

Guiding your children through the first school years

When our children reach school-age, it can be wrenching for parents. Waving goodbye as the little ones disappear behind the school gates on their first day is harder than you would think! The separation is difficult for children, too. But as our kids begin to navigate their brave new world, good parenting is just as important as […]

Matteo and Valentino Martin

Matteo and Valentino Martin, Ricky Martin’s adorable 5-year-old twin sons, are easy to distinguish – if you know what to look for. The different styles of these fashionable brothers set them apart – Matteo is taller and wears colourful thick-framed glasses, usually in red or blue, while Valentino sports a sleek blond hairdo. Born of […]
