The cost of raising children in Australia

The cost of raising children in Australia

FRIDAYS CHILD 13/01/2015 0
The $6000 nappy fund. Like I’m sure most couples contemplating children, we put a lot of thought into if we were mentally ‘ready’. Most of our time was spent discussing how this would affect our ability to travel to Europe on a whim (even though we had yet to travel on a whim thus far, even up the coast). Much discussion was had about the logistics of where we would park the pram in our 2 bedroom apartment. You know, those were the ‘challenges’ we busily contemplated. In fact, the only real financial implications we grappled with, was how we were going to afford the $6000 obstetrician bill. 18...

We heart baby moccasins!

I’m ashamed to admit it, but I am just a little bit obsessed with the latest celeb craze for leather baby moccasins. The latest pics of Kim Kardashian’s baby North in her cute white baby moccs, had me wishing for a baby girl just so I had a wider colour selection to choose from! As soon as I saw them, I just had to have them! We are so excited to now stock our own handmade buttery-soft leather moccasins in hot metallic: gold and silver, as well as cute beige suede moccs for the boys…or girls.Not only are they super cute, they are so practical for a baby who has just started walking. They are a...

When you’re pregnant, it’s only natural that your waking moments (and maybe your dreams, too!) are consumed by thoughts of tiny shoes and snuggly growsuits. But, before the little one arrives, it’s good to think ahead and make some initial preparations so you aren’t constantly playing catch-up once they arrive. It’s important that those first few months are relaxed and as enjoyable as possible for your new little family. This is not the time to stress about your to-do list!  As sent in by our fantastic panel of mums, here are the top tips for getting life in order before baby arrives.  1. Take...

I was pregnant at the same time as Kim Kardashian, and I still felt huge! I heard that during pregnancy some women feel beautiful, even like sex-goddesses. I certainly didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, I loved my huge round tummy. It was the swollen other bits and pieces that drove me to shower by candle-light. Well, here I am 6 months post- birth, back into my every-day human clothes, tummy is not what it once was but it will do, and I wonder what all the fuss was about. My fuss that is. I feel so sad that I wasn’t able to love my glorious temporary shell and capture it in all its glory in photogra...

FRIDAYS CHILD 27/11/2013 2
Apologies for the delay in updating this blog for some time. I’ve just had a baby you see, and what I’m finding these days is that it really is a plausible excuse for just about any short coming! And justifiably so, apparently babies don’t just sleep all the time allowing you to get around to your chores!  Not something I’d normally write about given this blog is purely about celebrating the frivolous, but having just been through my first pregnancy,  I’ve spent the last 9 months as a slave to doctor Google. I don’t know what it is about pregnancy but suddenly you become the most cautious, hyp...

We love a celebration – any excuse for a party and a cute theme and we’re excited. That’s why we’re loving the latest craze – gender reveal parties and announcements  – could you think of a better theme? After all, the discovery of a babies gender is still one of life’s greatest surprises.  It seems as though the number of couples finding out the sex of their baby prior to birth is on the increase, and is particularly common when it comes to second pregnancies. If this is your second baby you are probably not planning on having another Baby Shower. We think that every expectant Mum deserves a ...
