    Been reminding myself for ages to do a Baby Carrier review since I’ve spent an enormous amount on many ‘hot carrier items’ out there! Whether recommended by friends or family, or a purchase after much research and reading others’ reviews, below are my personal experiences with four (4) carrier brands in particular: Seven Slings, CuddlyWrap, BabyBjorn and Beco.   Seven Everyday Slings After excitedly receiving two different sizes (yes I spent for two sizes not know which Noah would fit in best) because the company (Seven […]

    Whenever pureed food would spill over onto his booster seat tray, I noticed Noah was immediately intrigued to slosh it around the with his little hand.

    Future Yogis and Yoginis Introducing yoga to Noah has been as simple as demonstrating seated stretches, then watching his enthusiastic version of a pose, including the “ahhh” exhale! It is so sweet to watch him picking up a few basic moves that we can build upon later, in a fun and playful way. Lead By Example Morning is the best time to sneak in your own Balasana (Child’s Pose) and Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog) right in the comfort of your own bed! Whether baby is […]

My expertise at the time was not kids playrooms for hotels so I did seek help from a British nanny colleague for ideas.

    Every winter is considered “high season” at the tropical paradise where I work annually at Amanpuri resort. “Om ah Hum” is a well-known Buddhist mantra, but what does it mean?
