  1. Council calls for parents to use cloth nappies

    Council calls for parents to use cloth nappies

    Councils promoting eco-friendly living want women to stop using tampons and parents to use cloth nappies. While workshops explaining changes have banned gendered language to make a “safe space”. By Susie O'Brien

    Victorian councils are seeking new ways to induce parents to switch to washable, resusable nappies, including paying them up to $150 a year to ditch disposables.

    Twelve Melbourne councils are conducting a joint survey to work out how to implement a reusable nappy program for residents. Reusable nappy sales have surged in recent years as products are easier to use and cheaper than disposables, but the idea of washing dirty nappies is holding many parents back.

    The study is led by the City of Monash and includes Maribyrnong, Bayside, Boroondara and Stonnington Councils, among others. The aim is to reduce the use of disposable nappy waste, which accounts for around one tenth of bin contents.

    Similar programs in other areas include recycled nappy hir

  2. Glowing Mumma, Thriving Bubba Interview with Pinky McKay

    I was a new Mum, not getting a lot of sleep but very hesitant to try the 'cry-it-out' methods that were presented to me. My motherly instincts told me there was a kinder way for my baby who seemed to be comforted by my touch and yes, mums milk.

    A friend had texted me through a link to a baby sleep event- I think she felt somewhat sorry for my lack of sleep. I'd heard of the name, but not yet had the energy to pick up any of her work so it seemed like the right time. I went along solo (well with bubs by my side), feeling somewhat wired after yet another rough 2-hourly-wakes throughout the night and a bit anxious about how I would keep my baby girl settled for the long car trip and event. As I arrived at pram city, I took a seat up the front ready to get the answers when it came to my wakeful bubba.

    I absorbed every word the speaker had to say and so appreciated her 'keeping it real', but loved that she supported a gentle and holistic approach that resonated with how I

    Tits Up, Pinky's Podcast

    Hello, Welcome to Tits up.

    When things go ‘tits up’, they are broken.

    ‘Tits up’ can also mean, ‘brave up and get on with it.’

    This is what mothers do – when things are broken, we pull up our big girl pants and we wade through the muck.

    As an IBCLC lactation consultant, I have seen more 'tits' than the late Hugh Hefner, however my ‘Tits Up’ podcast isn’t all about boobs and babies.

    As mums, we all have our ‘tits up’ times, and we need to laugh, cry, rage and be real about these, so we can bust the BS, superficial images of perfection that cause so much stress and anxiety to us all.

    Women can feel a huge sense of relief when they see they are not ‘the only one’ just putting one foot in front of the other and hoping they don’t fall flat on their backs – tits up!

    It’s important though, not to get bogged down in disappointment and complaining, we need positive models to inspire, encourage and lead the way through the hard

  4. INTERVIEW WITH PINKY MCKAY – BIGW BUB & ME SERIES

    INTERVIEW WITH PINKY MCKAY – BIGW BUB & ME SERIES

    by Suzanne Robinson Thursday, February 20, 2020

    Having a baby is a life-changing event and one that requires preparation. I read books, looked online and asked other mums about their experiences. For me I was not just having one child first, I ended up having twins as my first children. I don’t know how many do this but I am sure that it is not that common. BigW invited me to be a part of their Bub & Me Education Program in collaboration with select midwives across Australia. This post is the first in my three-part series about being a new mum, breastfeeding, childbirth and great things you can get from BigW for your new little person/people.

    Below are my questions to Pinky and her answers, I hope that this interview is helpful for all new mums.

    Pregnant Model Praised For Not Hiding Boob Veins. But Is It A Normal Side Effect?
    Carrying a baby can do strange things to your body, from making your nose bigger to giving you swollen ankles. Australian model and Instagram influencer, Belle Lucia, has just shared the reality of another side effect. The 24-year-old posted a bikini photo showing her baby bump as well as the veins on her chest, which she attributed to her pregnancy. “I know I got a veiny chest," the half German half Portuguese model wrote. "Happens because your blood volume increases by 50 percent when pregnant and they go away after pregnancy when your blood volume returns."
