Baby Getaways In Tuscany
... Anghiari (map) in Tuscany, and have come up with a fabulous idea on how to share it with other mums and parents. They’re offering mom & baby, and mom & toddler retreats, where there are activities for mom, activities for baby, and activities for mom & baby.  The setting looks idyllic, with a lovely stone villa, an inviting (fully-fenced) pool, and views of the rolling hills of Tuscany as far as the eye can see.  Of course, Dads and other family members are also welcome -they’re...

Travel Light, Even If You Pack Heavy

Travel Light, Even If You Pack Heavy
... – we were visiting Varadero, Cuba. While Cuba is safe, clean and very family friendly, there simply isn’t the option of purchasing many baby supplies there, unless your baby considers rum and cigars necessities.  A nervous mom to begin with, I simply couldn’t fathom how I’d cope if I needed “something” and hadn’t brought it or couldn’t find it. We paid a shocking amount in overweight fees, but our daughter, who was 11-months-old at the time, had plenty of familiar snacks, sunscreen...

A New Baby Elephant at Taronga Zoo

Like so many Australians, I’m gushing over the birth of the new Asian Elephant calf at Taronga Zoo. This big baby isn’t just the first little elephant born in Sydney; it’s also the first born in Australia. The baby boy was born to Thong Dee and Gung, two of five elephants brought to the zoo from Thailand for Taronga’s breeding program. The as-yet unnamed baby will soon have some playmates, with two more elephants at the zoo due to give birth soon! Porntip will give birth in early...

... francois langur Elke. But it seems her own family could! The darling monkey’s mother Saigon and dad Hanoi abandoned her at birth! “The baby was just lying on the ground and the parents were quite scared,” the senior primate keeper, Mandy McLellan, told The Sydney Morning Herald. “It is quite common for first-time mums in primate species to reject their first infant. That just comes down to lack of experience; the first one’s a bit of a shock. [Saigon] hasn’t had a...

Have you seen the newest arrival at Taronga Zoo? This adorable little animal is Monifa, a baby pygmy hippopotamus! The three-week-old hippo is only as big as a piglet, which is why she can be washed in this tub! In fact, baths are one of her favourite things! “She’s such an inquisitive little thing and loves bath time, she even turns somersaults in the water,” said the zoo’s hippo keeper Renae Zammit. Monifa means “I am lucky” in Nigerian, and it’s a pretty...
