I love tea tree oil! It keeps my hair from looking like a greasy mess and my skin from being red and irritated! My son that is picky even lets me put it on his owies! Woot woot. Do you use tea tree oil? My shopping club has great prices. DM me for a fantastic deal! #eos #healthylifestyle #livedlife #loveem #momboss #toddlermom #preschoolmom #cedarrapidsmom #iowamom #nontoxicliving #payattentiontoingredients #naturalparenting
“The further I venture into my parenting journey, the more I feel many detached mainstream parenting practices can be traced back to the mistruths we’re told when our children are young.⠀ ▫️⠀ And if we can be convinced to disengage with our babies, where does it end? Unknowingly, we allow cultural beliefs to set the stage for a lifetime of disconnection.⠀ ▫️⠀ From cry it out to time out, it begs the question; how are we convinced to crush our compassion in the first place? What rewards could possibly justify being non-responsive to our children's needs?⠀ ▫️⠀ When it comes to infant sleep the prize we're promised is self soothing. The theory is that by ignoring a baby’s needs we’re actually ‘teaching’ them a valuable lesson; how to soothe themselves so that, as parents, we won’t need to continue doing it for them.⠀ ▫️⠀ Strengthening this theory is the ultimate motivator: fear. Parents are scared into believing that if they refuse to teach their baby how to self soothe, they’re failing to teach a very necessary life skill.⠀ ▫️⠀ Thankfully, self soothing is an illusion. And when we shatter an illusion, it has no power over us; our love can't be leveraged and our sleep-deprived desperation can't be taken advantage of from those who seek to profit. We’re immune to being duped into believing that we need to carry out harsh parenting practices in an attempt to achieve something that doesn’t even exist.⠀ ▫️⠀ It’s critical to expose and debunk these myths before they embed themselves in our subconscious; creating unrealistic expectations, fueling unnecessary frustration and driving a wedge between us and those we love most.⠀ ▫️⠀ Because, no matter what some may say, our choices matter. They have powerful consequences, serving to either strengthen or weaken our mutual connection. To build or erode trust. In a modern world that places such a high value on the species-inappropriate expectation of solitary sleep we need to feel emboldened to ask tough questions, to scratch beneath the surface and seek the truth. So, why is self soothing the biggest con of new parenthood?”⠀ ▫️⠀ To read the rest of the post - head to the link in my BIO. #raisedgood

Can we just take a moment. And talk about - Self Care - I feel it's a tender, unique, evolving and yet freeing topic. I wanted to share these two pictures. The first one is from this morning, after my 5 mile run with my boys on bikes. The second one, is from nearly eight years ago now. Days after my last birth- my fifth baby in 10 years. It was at that time, I gently closed the book on making babies, birthing babies and nourishing babies. And shifted the focus to my body, it wasnt that I'd neglected it, it was that I shared it, willingly in so many ways. I wanted to regain my sense of self, I wanted to feel STRONG in my skin, I wanted to be healthy, I wanted to sweat, I wanted to keep up with my boys, I wanted so many things. And so I gently started moving my body with INTENTION everyday. I was conscious about the food I put in my mouth. And days and months and years have passed... Life lived in all these moments, right alongside my boys. It wasnt a passing fad or crash diet- I never once called myself F_ T! Or looked at my body with disdain. They are capable of the most amazing things, and should be celebrated. Because without our bodies, where would we be!!?? Show yours LOVE, treat it with LOVE. And be gentle, in your process. #selfcare

Prepping dinner with the help of our @infantinobaby flip advanced 4-in-1 convertible carrier. I love how easy and quick it is to get on - major key when a tiny person is being very vocal about needing to be held right now and you have things to do! I almost forgot I had it because I put it away in a closet since the toddler preferred the Tula. This little guy clearly has no objections. 🥰 #notanad #mamasfavoritebabythings ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #maternallyspeaking #sahm #sahmlife #unmaskingmotherhood #transparentmotherhood #motherhoodsimplified #naturalparenting #gentleparenting #attachmentparenting #crunchymama #babywearingmama #wearallthebabies #babywearing #closeenoughtokiss
A message from the late Fred Rogers: "If you grew up with our neighborhood, you may remember how we sometimes talked about difficult things. There were days, even beautiful days that weren't happy. In fact there were some that were really sad. Well, we've had a lot of days like that lately in our whole world. We've seen what some people do when they don't know anything else to do with their anger. I'm convinced that when we help our children find healthy ways of dealing with their feelings, ways that don't hurt them or anyone else, we're helping to make our world a safer, better place. No matter how you're doing that for the children you know, through music or art or games or books, I just want to tell you how proud I am of you, and grateful for you. It's such a good feeling to know that we're friends.

Folding laundry and this little guy snuck in for some one on one time 😌 it is so fun to see his personality shine through when Tate isn’t there to talk over him. Although He loves his brother dearly, I can tell some one on one time is just what he needs more of in his little life. I just signed him up for swim lessons for just him, sorry Tate 😳 but I can not wait to do this with just Dean. I often hear that middle Children feel left out and just kind of “there” and this makes me soo sad.

Ok, let’s do this. I feel it’s time. The recently popular FB „challenge” of sharing your profile picture from 10 years ago and now, is a good opportunity for me to launch something that I feel being called to for quite some time now. 10 years ago my life as it was, crashed, as a result of the choices I made in my early years. This was the end of a big chapter of my life or in other words the end of my totally unconscious life and the beginning of an incredible journey that I’ve embarked since then. The journey of discovering who I am in my core, who I want to become, what my call and purpose possibly are, and simply how I can live this life in a more authentic, conscious, true, connected and fulfilling way? 10 years ago I wasn’t even asking these questions. I just knew my life needs to change as mostly what I felt was a slow dying inside. I was quite depressed, uncomfortable in my body (which showed), disconnected in my job, lonely in my relationship, very confused and not knowing what to do next. It wasn’t my conscious decision to leave everything behind but looking back, I know, it was the first time that I truly let my inner wisdom to speak through me and coordinate the crash, so I was forced to stop and start the inner work and change. 10 years down the path, I feel ready for another step up and to start sharing with a bigger world than the one of my friends and family, what I’ve learned and discovered so far on this journey and what I keep unravelling. For now I will be sharing my learnings in small bites here. I trust you will find something of value in my shares. Stay tuned ☺️💚👍🏼🙏🏼 . #10yearschallenge #authenticity #sharing #service #innerwisdom #consciousliving #mindfulness #holisticadvisory #holistichealing #vulnerability #speakyourtruth #speakup #balilife #parenting #consciousparenting #naturalparenting #motherhood #wellbeing #spirituality #wholeness #transformation
Usually winter doesn’t get to me before maybe end of February but this year I’m really missing sunshine and it’s warm rays on my face. I’m missing green and my toes in the grass. I’m just missing being outside without freezing my tushy off. The winter blues are definitely getting me down. How do you beat the winter blues? I could use a little lift me up and some tips on what to do!⠀ ⠀ { Amber teething jewelry has long been prized for its abilities to soothe even the crankiest of teething tots.

Do you know the signs of a teething baby? Around 3 months of age, babies will begin exploring the world with their mouth, have increased saliva, and start to put their hands in their mouth as well. However, most babies will develop teeth between 6 and 12 months. They typically get the bottom front two teeth first. But, remember that every baby is different. During this time, babies can be very fussy. Some remedies to help are: 1) Wet a washcloth, put in the freezer. When frozen, let the baby suck/chew on it (old school remedy). 2) Silicone or wood teethers or both! Chewing relieves pressure on the gums. If you have an all silicone teether, you can also put that in the freezer. (hint hint: coming soon) 3) Distract your baby with games, singing, dancing, and tickles. 4) Hugging and cuddling always work! How did you help your baby through this time? . . . . . . . #candidchildhood #ourcandidlife #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #attachmentparenting #naturalparenting #childhoodunplugged #momswithcameras #motherhoodrising #kidsofinstagram #perfectbabies #babiesofig #instababy #crunchymama #cameramama #cutebabies #childrenofinstagram #babiesofinstagram #theeverymom #sharetheeverymom #teamMotherly #thisismotherhood #teethingbaby #frobabies #afrobabies #bougiebabies #shopsmall #letthembelittle #blackmomsblog #lovesmootiepie

Life is busy. _ We’re all rushed. _ There’s never enough time. _ The days pass by in a blurry haze of tweets, texts, meetings and must do’s. If we’re not careful, entire weeks and months can go by without our noticing. _ Yet, today’s message isn’t to slow down (although that probably wouldn’t be a bad idea). It isn’t to quit the internet, move to an ashram and chant mantra all day long (although sometimes that sounds heavenly to me personally). _ Today’s message is to embrace the crazy. _ Yes, embrace the crazy! _ Look it in the eye. Acknowledge the whirlwind of a society that we live in. Give it a big ‘ole high five. Don’t rail against it, wish it away or complain about it. Accept it as a fact. At least for today. _ There can be beauty in the crazy. Sure, long term busy-ness is not really good for anyone. But neither is complaining and moaning about how crazy the crazy is! _ Life can be hard or it can be fun. Most of the time, we can choose how to experience it. _ So, today, find the beauty in the crazy and dive right in! 💖 . . . #divineguidance #embracethecrazy #busy #busylife #crazybusy #rushed #somuchtodo #embraceit #acceptit #acceptance #acceptwhatis #radicalacceptance #dontfightit #leanintoit #leanin #beautyinthemess #findthegood #consciousparenting #holisticparenting #naturalparenting #mindfulparenting #awareparenting #joyfulmamas #calmparenting #emotionalintelligence #reiki #reikiwritings #reikiguidance #notesfromtheuniverse

The joy of feeding a preschooler... Believe me, you don't do it for you, even if it enables you to be a size 6 with a novelty rack for over 2 years, whilst doing little more than sitting on your arse all day eating unlimited cake, peeling play dough off everything and writing shitty poetry. I was lucky not to get mastitis, which is nasty but I did get a blocked duct, which isn't pleasant and she did literally bite me so hard once during a dream feed (I soon woke up) that I literally had a hole in my nipple that took months to heal. But the thing that has made it most worth doing, is for the craic.

Transferring with Chopsticks (Practical Life)🥢 🥢💖🥢💖🥢 This was the first time Anna was introduced to chopsticks. So, I paired it with larger pom-poms for easy grasp to begin with. 🥢💖🥢💖🥢 Holding chopsticks correctly helps exercise the muscles in the fingers. This activity further enhances hand dexterity and requires both pincer grasp movements and scissor cutting movements. 🥢💖🥢💖🥢
Good rising 🌄 Becoming grounded to the earth is something my soul is longing for! But living in the UK, especially this time of year, makes it a little difficult because it is cold lool. ✨ So I am contemplating on getting one of those grounding/earthing mats from groundology', to use at night time for baby and me. Has anyone use one before, are they good? #earthingmat

Some handy tips for using a stretch wrap for older babies ~ tag a mama who would like to know ☝️ 🌿 ARMS OUT ~ older babies may not like being all tucked up so give them the freedom of arms and head out as long as they have neck and head control 👍 Once baby sleeps you can just tuck them in again. . . 🌿SPREAD THE FABRIC WIDE OVER BACK AND BOTTOM. Very often the problem of “sagging” is simply because the fabric hasn’t been spread wide over baby’s back and bottom on both sides. Fabric should stretch all the way to the back of the knee 👍 You’ll be amazed at how much support a simple trick like this provides # . . 🌿 TIE THE WRAP FIRMLY WHEN YOU START. If baby sags the minute you pop them in, you haven’t tied it tight enough. Baby shouldn’t be sitting around your hips. The higher baby sits, the more support your shoulders and back will feel from the wrap 👍 #noonoopie #babywearing #babywrap #babyessentials #momlife #dadstyle #momstyle #naturalparenting

Laying on your side to breastfeed is so relaxing for both the mum and baby ✨ • Especially after a C section, it can be rather uncomfortable to be upright. Go with what feels natural to you 💙 • Image from @emmelypersson
Airport reflections. Simplify. Presence. Joy. Ok?
As any mother is, I am super picky with what products I use for Indie. I prefer as natural as possible from brands that I trust and love. In the bath, we use @biohoneynz Shampoo and Body Wash. It doesn’t have a smell, which is what I want, as this tells me it is ultra natural with no nasty fragrances! We also use Biohoney Baby Lotion. We use this daily. Indie gets very dry skin around her wee feet, so this lotion helps to keep that under control. Another great kiwi brand that I adore is @made4babymade4kids . Their Nappy Barrier cream is great! So easy to apply as it comes in a squeeze bottle - no double dipping! It works as an amazing moisturiser and prevents her bottom getting nappy rash. I have mentioned Littlefoot products before, but I’ll happily say it again. We wash Indies clothes (and my maternity bras) with their Lavender Baby Laundry Liquid. My mind is put at ease using this product because I know that her skin won’t get irritated or uncomfortable. Sleepy Time Balm. Part of our nightly routine. Not only is this helping Indie relax. It also relaxes me and Josh. It is full of essential oils and other all natural goodness. Such an awesome baby product by @babybeekind.nz
Our new line is coming next week lovely ones! ➰ Think simplicity ➰
There is often the misconception that children purposely do wrong in order to manipulate, get attention or just get their own way. Yes, there may be times when children feel the need to do this but then the question needs to be “why?”. Do they feel like they are not being listened to? Do they need some attention to feel validated or loved? Do they feel they are never in control? Our children may want to tell us an endless list of things but don’t always know the right way to say it. They are developing, learning and growing. Once they can do something as simple as talking about their emotions, these troubling behaviours will stop being present and their minds will become free. They will do well not because you want them to, but because they can. #bepatient #timehelpsgrowth . . #childdevelopment #parentingtips #parentingquotes #dailyparenting #naturalparenting #positiveparenting #emotionalintelligence #mentalhealth #kidsmentalhealth #teachermom #momssupportingmoms #mumssupportingmums #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodunited #parentlife #momlife #mumlife #parenthood #parenting #childhood #childhoodunplugged #stemeducation #motherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodthroughinstagram .
Recently I’ve felt on the go - constantly - today I am giving myself a chance to pause and recharge. . . I’m always thinking that things need to be done for everyone and for everything to work, but the biggest gift I can give myself and my children is teaching them to do certain tasks independently and letting them get on with it. They may need me to be always here for guidance, but they don’t need me every step of the way as a shadow. And I also need to get that balance right for my own self and clarity of mind. . . #selfcare #selflove #selfesteem #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #momlife #mumlife #family #familylife #parenting #parentingtips #dailyparenting #parentingmemes #parenthood #parentlife #parentproblems #parents #naturalparenting #positiveparenting #motherhood #motherhoodthroughinstagram #motherhoodunplugged #motherhoodsimplified #motherhoodintheraw #quoteoftheday #motherhoodrising #uniteinmotherhood #motherhoodunited
When my daughter first watched Frozen and Tangled she started telling me she wanted her hair “yellow” and “really long” and in the same hairstyles as them. And when she saw someone with blonde hair she would look in amazement at them. . Every time she told me how she would like hair like them or how someone else’s hair was lovely like Elsas or Rapunzels, I said “oh I want your hair! I love your beautiful curly hair” for every compliment she gave to someone else, I gave one to her. . . And now she asks me to make her hair the biggest hair in the morning and tells everyone how great her curls are. I wish I had all her confidence 😊 . . Teach your children to be proud of who they are and what they have. Encourage them to admire what is unique about them and let them know that is what makes them beautiful 💜 . . #curls #curlyhair #afro #mixedbabies #mixedkids #unique #bedifferent #beyourself #conciousparenting #naturalparenting #positiveparenting #positivevibes #dailyparenting #cutekidsclub #selfesteem #selflove #selfconfidence #motherhood #curlykids #melanin #childmodel #kidsofinstagram #proudmomma #beautifulkids #bighairdontcare #teachermom #momswithcameras #clickinmoms #cameramama #motherhoodunited
Teach your child to be good and kind because it’s the right thing to do. Not because they are going to be rewarded. . . Seeing us proud is the biggest natural reward and all they need to encourage them to keep trying their best to do good. . . #beproud #proudmom #proudmama #proudmum #positivevibes #positivequotes #quotesaboutlife #mentalhealth #kindness #love #praise #acceptance #mumblogger #momblogger #family #parenting #parenthood #parentingtips #naturalparenting #positiveparenting #parentlife #familylife #familylove #mumblogger #momblogger #dailyparenting #mindfulness #mindfulmama
When I had my first child, I did not think about emotional intelligence. Until my son was four with fantastic speech and knowledge (for his age) yet he didn’t know how to explain himself if he was feeling angry, upset or jealous, not only that, I later found out that he did not only not know how to communicate these feelings effectively, he did not think he was allowed to have these emotions. . . All these negative emotions that we have are normally shunned or ignored. Because they don’t make us feel nice. It’s ok to feel “happy, excited or loving” but if we are not feeling these positive feelings. What do we do? How do we talk about it? . . Teach them: •Anger is good - anger teaches us that something isn’t right (whether it’s something in our own world or a wider problem) and encourages us to think about what we can do to make a positive change •Sadness is good - Sadness helps us and others understand that we are hurt. And being hurt helps us understand potential dangers and also helps us understand what is important to us •Jealousy is good- jealousy helps us understand that we might like something that we can’t have or we might want to do something different in our own lives or own selves. . . When we understand these emotions, we begin to realise that it is not the emotion itself that is negative. But it is the behaviours we may show through not understanding the emotions we feel, that can be negative for ourselves or others. . .

Labels only limit our abilities and tell us that we cannot fully achieve: “He is naughty” or “She cannot write properly” tells a child that they have reached their end point and that is all that they will amount to. It also limits us as parents into thinking we cannot help our children develop. . Instead teach your children alternatives to negative behaviour and tell your child they might not be able to write “yet”, teaching them that their learning and development is limitless and they can always improve at their own paces.

Being free and wild 🐾 #letthekids #freeplay #naturalparenting #wildchild -letting your children explore is the best gift you can give them- don’t just take them outdoors, let them be outdoors. Give them time to explore and love nature. . . (maybe with trousers on, but when there is some water to play in, who needs trousers 🤪) . . #naturelovers #kids #explore #mindfulness #naturalparenting #freechild #happiness #instakids #kidsofinstagram #curlyhair #naturalhair #curlyhead #raisinggirls #raisingdaughters #girlpower #naturalkids #childrenseemagic #childrenofinstagram #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #childhoodthroughinstagram #naturegram #naturegirl
