Would you share the name of your baby before birth?
Esther and I just had an interesting conversation about sharing or not sharing the name of your unborn child. She cheekily asked if we had decided on a name for our baby boy already and if I would share it with her. Which got us comparing habits and traditions on the matter. I am now ...

Maternity products -- a few little luxuries and some practical tips too!
When you are pregnant with your third child, you just have less 'me' time. So instead of getting new and lovely items for your pregnancy, you inherit hand-me-down maternity clothes from friends, you pull out some of your old clothes from storage, and you make do -- which is a great way to recycle and ...

Baby on Board -- helpful badge of honour for pregnant mamas?
I have taken this little simple badge for granted until recently when one of my American friends was visiting. She was so impressed that mums-to-be in London get to have these pins to wear while commuting so they can easily get a seat, and have a rest. It is the Baby on Board badge. Have ...

Why a home birth is not my first choice...
I am now 38 weeks pregnant, and I just visited the midwife at our Birth Centre last week to discuss my Birth Plan. I am in full-on preparing and nesting mode! And the top item on the list, is, of course, having the baby! The midwife said I was a good candidate for a home birth ...

Indoi -- slow fashion for women -- maternity and breastfeeding friendly too!
Buying better and buying less for my wardrobe is something I have not yet perfected but am attempting to make a real effort at. But often fast fashion seems easier, especially with a growing bump, unless you can find well-made pieces that evolve and grow with you -- silhouettes that have flexibility and are long-lasting, ...

How Bram was born
Bram will be 11 weeks old tomorrow. He's doing so well -- he is so healthy and growing so beautifully, and he is as sweet and content as he was from the moment he was born. Bram was born at home on the 17th of March, very early in the morning. Unexpectedly, he didn't come early ...

The Nesta's Nest baby bed, handcrafted and all-natural
Our bedroom is a very calm place if you compare it to the rest of the house. It's on the top floor, above the kids bedrooms and the living rooms where all of the craziness takes place. Ascending the stairs to our bedroom means leaving behind the hectic life, and entering the quiet quarters. Bram ...

Welcome baby Bram!
Esther's beautiful baby boy, Bram, arrived a whopping 10 days late (!!) on Saturday the 17th of March. He was born at home in Esther's bedroom in the early morning stillness with Tamar by her side and two midwives standing by. At 6:30 that morning, they woke their children up with the news they had ...

New Baby | What essentials do you really need for the first weeks?
There's a lot you can buy for your baby. And there's a lot you really don't need! Admittedly, I have made my share of useless purchases in the past (for example, a nappy trash can which produces giant nappy sausages). Now, expecting our fifth baby, I think I have more of an idea of what ...

Giving birth naturally -- preparing for a natural (home?) birth

Waiting for baby... our nursery corner
The waiting game has began! I'm nearly 39 weeks pregnant and it can be really any day now... or not! I always find these weeks around the due date so strange. All is quiet and calm, everything is more or less prepared for the arrival of the baby. And no one knows when or how ...

The hospital bag | what essentials do you need to pack?
The last few weeks before giving birth is all about preparing for baby. I've been reading books and trying to practise my breathing for during delivery, and I have set up the little crib and changing table in our bedroom. Of course I've washed all those little baby clothes as well! Part of the fun, ...

The second trimester is when your body really starts to grow and you will feel your baby kick for the first time.

'The Ultimate Baby Book' by Baby London Magazine
When I discovered I was pregnant with Sara 13 years ago, I quickly went to my local bookstore to buy all the guide books I could find. Pregnant! I didn't even know where to start. I studied all of those books (and expected Tamar to show an equal interest in my pregnancy, of course). And ...

The first trimester of your pregnancy | what essentials do you need?
The first trimester of your pregnancy is a time of excitement and giddiness, of insecurity and of physical unease. It is also a time of waiting and very often of hiding the first signs of being pregnant! This pregnancy, I nearly entirely missed my first trimester. By the time I found out that I was expecting ...

The first year of a baby's life is probably the most intense one. So much happens during these first twelve months of human life: that wrinkly, curled-up newborn you welcomed into your arms for the very first time on the day he or she was born, will turn into a smiling, babbling, eating, crawling (or ...

How sometimes a seemingly small transition can make an enormous emotional input... Is your family complete? Shannon is ‘very nearly certain’ her family is complete with two children, and was surprisingly weepy when she moved her 2 year old baby from his crib to a cot bed this weekend. Her baby not a baby anymore — such a bittersweet moment! Sounds familiar? Have there been little changes or transitions that surprised you with their emotional intensity?

The story of the beautiful brand @wunderlang is such a wonderful one. Founder Andrea Lang is SO mindful and SO respectful towards everything life has to offer: ‘I made it my mission to source garments made from natural fibers, which were no longer wearable due to tears or flaws. I set about deconstructing them and making them into children’s clothes. Effectively saving them from the landfill.’ Head over to our blog to read Andrea’s humbling answers to our 5 questions, and get inspired! #reuse #consciousfashion #wunderlang #babyccinokids #babyccinoboutiques #babyccinointerviews
