Becoming a new mother (or parent for that matter) can be one of simultaneously the most amazing, scary, rewarding, intimidating things that ever happens to you. Of course, some take everything in their stride and don’t blink an eyelid.
As an expectant mother it’s hard to know what to expect. You never know exactly how you’re going to feel, if you will cope as well as you thought or if anything you expected even matters.

It’s never too early to start thinking about the health of your babies teeth. As soon as the first tooth comes through you can start as you mean to go on by keeping them healthy and clean!
Obviously (like most things) this may be A LOT harder to do than it is to advise! Brushing a baby or toddler’s teeth can be incredibly fiddly and requires a lot of patience. It is worth it though! I hope if my children grow up knowing the importance of good dental hygiene then they’re more likely to continue to look after their teeth as teenagers and adults.

When it’s cold, not being constantly paranoid about your baby being either to too cold or too warm is really hard! It first started for me when I was told by the hospital that I needed a hat to put on Coco when I took her home. A hat?! No one had told me that before...
But when I thought about it, of course that little bald head would be cold without a hat! It seems like common sense now, but why does no one tell you some of these eminently practical things before you give birth?

Nordic interiors are currently having a serious moment and I have to say, I absolutely love it! Nordic style is usually about white walls, natural fabrics and a minimalist style. Right now geometric patterns and pops of colour popular are popular as well as that magical Scandi touch of whimsy.
I’ve always liked incorporating natural colours and materials in my house. It’s just so easy on the eye and it feels really calming to me to be surrounded by clean lines and neutral tones.

Baby showers have got pretty big in the last few years. Thanks to traditions in America that have now spread across the pond, expectant mothers and fathers to be benefit from a special celebration to welcome their baby into the world. I wasn’t 100% sure on the idea (I hate being the centre of attention) until my friends threw me a baby shower and I realised what a great idea they actually are!
A baby shower is the time you get to properly catch up with friends before the final months of pregnancy and birth. After the baby is born, you often end up way too tired or busy to get together and have a good time with friends, so this is the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your best ones!
