editor’s letter

sara@kidmagazine.com.aukidmagazine.com.au There have been a few moments recently, all rather insignificant in isolation, that have added up to smack me in the face with a realisation about myself. I was lost. Somewhere in the past four years of navigating motherhood, I have lost parts of myself that I really love. It would be impossible to stay the same when you have kids, but when you lose your core, what makes you, you, then you need to do something about it. It’s not easy with kids. There are some days where I feel so far from the person I know I am. Days where I am cranky and tired and over touched and over it. Other days are full of love and laughter and kids who listen when I speak and actually do what…

natural beauty

If you were to take a guess, how many ingredients do you think are in your average beauty product? 5? 10? Would it shock you to learn that there are between 15 to 50 chemical ingredients used to create the average product sitting on your bathroom shelf? If you are using the average number of beauty products most women use (9-15 a day) that is approximately 515 chemicals applied to your skin each day. It’s not just what the fragrances, emulsifiers, emollients, colouring agents, preservatives, thickening agents and pH stabilisers do to your skin that concerns Tracey Bailey, founder of Biome Eco Stores, but it is also what they are doing to the world we live in. “The production and disposal of these chemicals affect our environment with most beauty waste…

rose & cocoa moisturising lotion bars

Creamy cocoa butter and calming rose is used to make these moisturising cocoa and rose lotion bars. Rose petals are soothing and help to treat inflamed skin conditions, while castor oil is exceptional for its moisturising and conditioning properties. Cocoa butter has incredible healing and anti-aging properties, and works to heal rashes and prevent skin dryness. The Australian pink clay is rich in antioxidants and has wonderful hydrating properties, and also provides a pretty pink hue. This recipe makes approximately 2 x 70g bars (as pictured) or 8-10 2.5cm cubes (using an ice cube tray). Ingredients 2 tablespoons dried rose petals (to infuse overnight in your castor oil) ½ cup cocoa butter 4 tablespoons candelilla wax ½ cup castor oil or olive oil ½ teaspoon Australian pink clay 12 drops geranium essential oil 6 drops rose geranium essential oil 6…

it starts at home

As mothers, we send our children out into the world hoping their journey through school will be a happy one. We rely on our educators to create an anti-bulling culture and both protect and educate our little people. But what if bullying culture actually begins at home? “WHEN IT COMES TO BULLYING THERE CAN BE NO GREY AREA. RESEARCH CONFIRMS THAT YOUR FAMILY’S MESSAGING NEEDS TO BE ENTIRELY CONSISTENT THAT BULLYING IS NOT NORMAL, OKAY, TOLERABLE OR ACCEPTABLE.” Current research suggests that one in three children is involved in bullying whether it be as a victim, perpetrator or both. It also shows that children who are not directly involved are still witnessing bullying behaviours on a regular basis. In short, no child is immune from exposure to bullying. It’s natural that you might worry…

mackenzie’s mission

We spent the six months before our wedding preparing to get pregnant. We ate healthy, had blood tests, underwent acupuncture and even paid to have fertility checks done (before we had started trying!). Not long after our wedding we got pregnant, our first pregnancy sadly ended in a miscarriage, which was hard, but we knew they were common. We ended up getting pregnant the month after our miscarriage and whilst cautious we could not have been happier. During the pregnancy we did everything we could to ensure we had a healthy baby including taking vitamins, doing the required scans and even had the expensive harmony (or NIPT) test. The pregnancy itself was perfect! I loved every second of being pregnant. Our midwives said it was a boring pregnancy, which is exactly what…

five minutes with tiffiny

How did you find the adjustment to motherhood? What have you found the most surprising part of the journey? I don’t think there was time to slowly adjust, for me it was like being hit by a truck. We had a reflux baby and I was back at work and the sleep deprivation was more torturous than I could ever imagine but I loved every second of it and wouldn’t change a thing. The first 6 weeks were a magic time for Ed and I and seeing this baby I had dreamt about, be finally in my arms, it was overwhelming how much I loved him. I was surprised by how something that just drinks milk and sleeps could steal my heart. It was love at first sight. As someone who is…
