Tuesday Tips: Coping with Car Sickness
We often talk about our love for travel on Babyccino, which I share whole heartedly, but there is one aspect I find difficult about travelling with children, and that is car sickness. Our daughter, Beatrice, suffers from the worst car sickness, and it is both heart breaking and debilitating. For us it’s specifically cars — sometimes ...

Weekend Getaway: Taormina, Sicily
Last June my husband had a work conference in a sunny Sicilian city called Taormina, so we decided to tag along. And I am so happy that we did! It was sunny, bright, warm and beautiful… which are all great excuses for a gelato everyday, right? Known as the ‘pearl of the Mediterranean’ Taormina is simply ...

The V&A and the wonderful Winnie-the-Pooh exhibition

This exhibition in this space is the perfect marriage -- one of the world's best children's stories (we are enormous fans!), ...

A family travel backpack, packed with handy features! | From Lo & Sons

Successfully traveling with children, for me, is all ...

Summertime grants permission to let loose, stay up later, run a bit faster, and truly embrace life outdoors without school, schedules, and routine. So if long days are spent running in meadows, hiking in mountains, or swimming at the seaside... then possible scrapes, bug bites, or bruises, are unfortunately inevitable. Because we don't want summer ...

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids
