Babywearing: The Babywearing Consultant

Why book a baby wearing consultant ? Before the birth of the little bird, I didn’t look much into babywearing. However, soon after his birth  I figured out that I may should have at least thought about it. Why ? Because that’s what I was doing. I was carrying my baby. All day long. I carried him…

About Taking Time

I hope you don’t mind that it’s been a little bit silently here on the blog. Settling in as a family of four and enjoying these precious moments has taken all my time…well, and then there was also our move to Panama; but that is another story (more to come soon)! Although I love writing…

How I Prepared for Childbirth (incl. Postpartum)

Ode to my Baby Carrier… and R.Kelly

With babies being “parent clingers” (they want to be carried around), I carry Thiago a lot. In the beginning, I carried him in my arms. Then my arms became tired and I felt limited in my actions (although I managed to do a lot of domestic work with one hand only!) so I had to find…

The P Story

It stands on a wooden bureau in our living room. Right next to the sewing machine that I inhereted from my mother when I set forth after my A levels, a couple of matryoshka dolls from my Moscow visit and a miniature figure of Walther “Heisenberg” White from my man’s beloved TV show Breaking Bad.…

The Post Delivery Gift Box (Postpartum Products)

I recently met with a friend who is currently pregnant. When we happened to be in a room while the guys were out smoking, she asked me if there was anything she’ll need to buy for herself after she had the baby. She said this in a way as if this was some sort of super secret topic.…
