Less Furniture

Get rid of some of your furniture. It may sound crazy but sitting on a chair or sofa is not the best position for the body. Observe how toddlers and kids naturally sit down, one of the most healthful positions is shown in the picture above. Working and playing with...

White Clothing

White Clothing

White or cream clothing is not only pretty on little ones, it also has not been colour dyed. I do like second hand clothing or hand me downs, as all the nasties have already been washed out. I definitely watch out on items that are on direct skin contact. We...

Bath Time

Bath Time

Weekly bath sorted! We only give our kids a bath once a week in only water. It might sound a bit strange but it is actually better for their skin. We do clean the kids bottoms everyday and occasionally if they are very grubby from the sandpit etc. we give...

Lip Care

Our girls only ever have herbal cough syrup, it often works better and has fewer side effects - win win. Marshmallow root extract is the one I usually go for. I only give it during the day which also makes them cough less at night. The only downside is that it contains a...

Mosquito Bites

Mosquito Bites

We had lots of mosquitos last night, we all ended up with quite a few bites. Pure organic lavender oil rubbed on does the trick, takes off the itch and they seem to go down a lot faster. It's also a natural repellant - should have thought of that last...

Clean Sheets

Clean Sheets

Do you air out your bedding? It's quite a common thing to do here and especially on a sunny day you can see many scenes like this one I snapped. Since sunlight is a natural disinfectant, it's a great way to take care of germs and it reduces dust mites...
