Last Sunday – Out on a morning walk with the kids. Nelly in her Ergo, wearing a cute yellow girlie hat with a ribbon on the side, and Erik his policeman hat and his spiderman water bottle hanging from his neck. Walking up the street of our country house in Greece, while the rest of […]

If you bought the Times of Malta last Sunday, chances are you’ve read the interview I gave to PINK magazine, and know that a beautiful baby girl called Nelly has been welcomed to our family. It’s been a while since I last wrote a blog post on my website, and I had not mentioned anything so […]

The last few days Roy was away in Bangkok for a conference and I was alone with Erik in Koh Lanta. I must admit I didn’t feel particularly comfortable being alone here, but nevertheless it had to be done. While Erik and me were relaxing on the balcony yesterday afternoon, we suddenly heard a loud […]

My ‘baby boy’ is no longer a baby. He turns 14 months in one week time! And the differences from the baby age to toddler-hood are huge. Let me share with you a funny story – I am smiling as I write these lines 🙂 It’s been a month since our little man walked steadily […]

The role of the parent is that of a gardener

The role of the parent is that of a gardener

Almost 2 years ago a small seed was planted in my belly. A small seed to be cared for, nurtured and loved, to grow strong and make an entrance in this world. Our little baby boy left the protective environment of mamma’s uterus, broke the barrier of his known world and entered ours at 01:20 […]

Formula milk should not be chosen for convenience reasons.

Formula milk should not be chosen for convenience reasons.

If you’ve been following maltamum for a while, you most probably know I am all pro breast milk. Breast milk OR formula is not part of the equation in my mind, as formula is what I would give to my baby IF I wasn’t able for medical reasons to breastfeed. Sometimes, I am sad to say, […]

Babbling for the first time in Malta

Babbling for the first time in Malta

[ 0 ] 26/03/2014 |

You have heard the random ‘ba’, you have heard the random ‘ma’. And out of a sudden, after more than a month of silence, the baby goes crazy with babbling and repeats syllables, and he’s all about ‘babababa’ and ‘dadadada’. We were just playing in bed and he started twaddling! OK, OK, I know. Babies […]

My experience with breastfeeding

My experience with breastfeeding

[ 0 ] 28/02/2014 |

I breastfeed because I have milk. And since I have breast milk, I prefer spending my nights awake next to a hungry baby rather than next to a sick baby. There is tons of info explaining the benefits of breastfeeding. But why is it that we need to read such facts to be persuaded this […]

Be careful with commercial products that treat cradle cup!

Be careful with commercial products that treat cradle cup!

[ 0 ] 25/01/2014 |

Cradle cup might look horrible but it’s harmless and doesn’t bother the baby at all. It can last for a year, sometimes even more, and it’s absolutely common and in the range of normal. Parents, friends and relatives, even medical professionals (!), might be obsessed though, wanting it to go away now, fast. So far […]
