"Child experts warn mothers against covering their baby's pram with a blanket to shield them from the sun, insisting it could it could prove fatal to infants".
I wrote about this last year and it was a very popular post!

We can often feel like there is simply no time (or no energy) to do all the cleaning we need to. This feels especially true when we have children who are making messes of their own.

Travelling is so rich and beneficial for kids, opening up their world view and exposing them to different cultures. And besides, it wouldn't be a proper holiday if you didn't have them with you, right?
