Logo Relaunch for Blissful Babies

We promised there would be something exciting coming to Blissful Babies and we are thrilled to reveal our BRAND NEW LOGO!!

We decided it was time for a refresh so here it is.

We will still have the same premium and personalised service to all our parents, but with a fresh look. Like babies, who are always changing, we thought our business could do with a change too. ?

Thanks to the beautiful and creative, Jo Stallard, who worked with us for quite a few months to create this beautiful logo and more fantastic designs for our socials.

Fussy Eater Fact

New foods can be scary and overwhelming to try, which is why when you do offer a new food, they are usually inclined to ignore it. The easiest way to approach this is to put a small amount of the new food on the plate with familiar food your child already likes. Encourage your child to smell, lick or touch it and then leave them to it. The less pressure you put on them the more likely they will be encouraged to try the new food on their own. Remember, they may need to see the new food on their plate 10 – 15 times before they even try and have a taste. Persistence and consistency are the keys.

The First School Term Fatigue

Transitioning to school for a young child can be a difficult one. Not only for the child but the parent. It can create anxiety for both parties. How can we lessen this and make our transition smooth?

  1. Lots of preschools and daycare centres do offer a School Readiness program. This includes trips to your local school and talks from community members leading up to the school year commencing. This allows a slow shift into something new and exciting and is beneficial for both child and parent in preparing for the school year ahead.
  2. Talk with your child about big school and explain the routine. Even go past or ask for a tour of the school your child will be going to. Preparation is key.
  3. Use a lunchbox for daily meals. Get your child involved in being able to unwrap the contents of the box. Explain when to eat what foods. Practice mealtimes at home which would be like school breaks. Children gain comfort from knowing what to expect.
  4. Routine is key to the smooth running of the household. Start setting an alarm allowing yourself some time to get ready in the mornings. Maybe get the uniform out the night before or even have a school locker or shelf to have all school things ready. Print out a copy of the child’s school routine so they can see what’s on for the week. Include PE Days, News Days and Library Days and get your child involved in the preparation of their school bag.
  5. As the child commences the school term, they may be quite exhausted. Allowing for this, an early bedtime should be adopted. Some children will fall asleep within a few minutes of getting home. A short nap is ok. Then try moving to a bedtime around 6.30-7.30pm. This allows the child’s body to rest and recover and you as the parent to have some time to prepare for the next day.
  6. Set time for play, afternoon tea and homework. This helps the child routine themselves and become more independent.
  7. As life is busy and time is precious, always remember that 5-10mins of quality time with your children is worth more to them than an hour chatting whilst preparing for dinner. Knowing they have Mum’s full attention for a short time increases the quality of communication between you.
  8. If we get it right 30% of the time we are doing an awesome job. Take time for yourself within your day. This allows you to be the best parent you can be – you’ve got this, Mumma!
