One of the happiest events in life is getting to meet your newborn child, and if that’s happening for you anytime soon – congratulations! You’re about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime that will at times be crazy, at times stressful, but most of the time filled with love you never knew existed. New mamas are usually stressing out about all the steps that are scheduled in your new life and things you don’t know anything about, such as how to tell what your baby is feeling, how to choose appropriate baby food and baby clothes, and how on Earth anyone manages poor night’s sleep and stays sane.

Having children is one of the most amazing feelings in the world, but having kids and raising them are two completely different things. It all starts when they’re babies and you have a strong motherly instinct to protect them at every turn, but also not be too invasive of their surroundings and keep them in a bubble. Creating a safe and serene playroom for your child is a great way to start putting that motherly instinct to work and creating a space that is the most joyful place in the world for them.
The younger your child is, the more time they spend sleeping. Newborns can sleep up to 18 and infants about 15 hours a day, and since sleep is crucial for your baby’s mental and physical development, you should do your best to make the space where your baby sleeps or naps comfortable and healthy. Here are some tips on how to achieve this.
Babies usually start crawling soon after turning eight months – but sometimes even sooner! – so you need to be prepared in advance because you never know when your little one is going to decide it’s time to start investigating the surroundings. Many parents think their children will never put their fingers in electrical outlets or start climbing the furniture, but you’d be surprised how much they truly like touching and climbing everything they see.

We’ve assembled the pros and cons of each option to help make the choice between Bought vs Homemade Baby Food a bit easier for you.

If you too want your child to start its life in a natural, organic and non-toxic space, here is our ultimate Eco friendly nursery guide.

Cleaning without chemicals!
When you enter the crazy, uncharted waters of motherhood, your perspective on the simple things such washing can alter in ways you never before contemplated. Pre-children, you soaked your whites for a week, hand washed your designer bras, scrubbed and starched cuffs & collars, removed the occasional red wine stain on your husbands business shirt from his Friday work drinks and a chilli oil stain on your chinos from your lazy Sunday morning Yum Cha session with your girlfriends.
