The saying goes; nine months in, nine months out. But I didn’t want to hear it. I was bombarded with messages from magazines telling me to get bikini ready, and if it wasn’t them, it was the social media posts of women who had bounced back two weeks after giving birth.
“I’ve embraced cloth diapers” is something I never thought I’d say. Part of it was pride, part of it was convenience. Cloth nappies weren’t cool in my mind. And they are such a mess and a pain! Right? Wrong! Sofi Chabowski of Eggs & Soldiers is an oracle when it comes to living a more natural way –
Happy Mothers Day! The last 5 months have been a complete upheaval of life as we knew it. I’ve had deep dark moments I’d never want to revisit, inner strength revealed I never knew I had, the chance to see the world with a little bit more love and the long,
I was afraid of putting into words what my biggest challenge is at the moment, but after speaking with some amazing mothers this week, I’ve found I’m not the only one completely overwhelmed by things. Motherhood is tough. It’s a blessing, and there are so many highs, but oh so many lows.
It’s been a hectic few months doubling our family from 2 to 4! I considered myself a pretty organized person before the boys came along but I really have had to step up my game. Organizing a business, two boys, family life, international travel, getting back into fitness and running a house has meant I’m ruthless with efficiency and productivity.
Let me begin with a very honest admission; I never wanted children. I never pictured myself as a father and assumed that I would live a life of supercars and solitude, until I met Anna.

Let’s be clear, babies need a lot of stuff and it’s so easy to get carried away especially when there’s two of them! From lugging gear through crowded airports or just figuring out what big ticket items are actually worth it (strollers can cost upwards of AED5,000!) Hire4baby is a concept that solves both scenarios by allowing you to rent everything you’d need for a child,
I’ve been overwhelmed with the love and support my family has received over the last month with the arrival of our twin boys, and it really dawned on me for the first time how having a baby, or babies in my case, is such a life-changing experience and requires some really unique care from those around you.
I like to think of myself as pretty organised in business and life but when I got pregnant, baby brain hit hard. From having energy and being on top of everything to just feeling like I had jelly for a brain was difficult! There was no way I just stop working and chill out on the couch,
When we first found out we were expecting twins, the aspect of creating a small cute and cozy nursery took a different turn! While you don’t necessarily need two of everything, it does make it logistically more difficult to create an intimate and useful space to raise two little bundles of joy.
