They look pretty cute under the tree too btw!

And we are back with another video from our friends over @soulsisterhealth as part of our โ€œAll About Mumโ€ series. This time, Em is keen to get you moving, but in a gentle Soul Sister way, of course ๐Ÿ˜‰โค๏ธโ €
โ €
Emโ€™s notes on todayโ€™s workout are below: ๐Ÿ’—โ €
โ €
๐Ÿ’ซ ALL ABOUT MUM โ€˜Yogiโ€™ inspired Flow ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธโค๏ธ This ones for all the mummas who have spent their days, weeks, months and even years in those awkward Mum postures ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Weโ€™re talking the endless forward carrying โ€ข breastfeeding โ€ข baby wearing โ€ข pram pushing โ€ข co-sleeping - Yep, OUCHIE! All of these actions are of course a necessary โ€˜evilโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜‰ BUT they can create โ€˜stuckโ€™ and less than ideal โ€˜posturesโ€™ ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ Now, you can just accept this as your โ€˜new normalโ€™ and move on, but there is so much more to this than just a few back niggles and a stiff neck...๐Ÿค” โ€ขโ €
These shifts in alignment typically adapted during pregnancy and in the early post natal days, can have a negative impact of the function of your core and pelvic floor system...a system that is already potential weakened - SAY WHAAAT?! The body needs to be โ€˜stacked upโ€™ nicely so that the core can be โ€˜stacked upโ€™ nicely...and when things are where they should be, the system should work ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ The clincher is, if youโ€™ve been holding these โ€˜posturesโ€™ for years, then itโ€™s not an overnight fix! Iโ€™ll leave you with some easy advice, and a few things Iโ€™m trying to implement where I can ๐Ÿ’ก Be AWARE of your daily โ€˜posturesโ€™, how are you standing and carrying yourself as you get about your mum duties? ๐Ÿ’ก Move, stretch and mobilise your body in opposition of these โ€˜stuckโ€™ postures ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ like the above flowโ˜๐Ÿผโ €
โ€ขโ €
As mums we want and need to be able to move, twist and turn in many and varied ways and it can all starts with ironing out the kinks ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ So get your inner โ€˜Yogiโ€™ on mummas ๐Ÿง˜๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ You wonโ€™t regret it ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโค๏ธ @soulsisterhealth Em x #mumposture #postnatalhealth #postnatalrecovery #alignment #corerestore #yoga #yogaflow #mumyoga

You had me at tiny toes.โ €
Speckled round close up! Subtle, soothing, stylish. Just how we like it ๐Ÿ’—

Does anyone else follow โ€œSomething they want, something they need, something they wear and something to readโ€ for their kids? ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ โ €
โ €
Our Toy Storage Baskets are a pretty great โ€œsomething they needโ€ btw, especially after the big guy ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ has been with ALL THE TOYS!โ €

Aussie Xmas vibes right here.โ €
โ €
This QLD weather has us like ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป.โ €
How are we all coping Mummas? ๐Ÿ”ฅ ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

Luxe Play Mats are BACK IN STOCK SOON (errr, well except this style - you guys were loving our Xmas vibe as much as we did and Navy Blue Pre-Order allocation has sold out! So if you donโ€™t want to miss out on another colour, preorder NOW! ๐Ÿ˜˜)

When you see your products in their new homes and squeal a little! ๐Ÿ’—โ €
โ €
Our Speckled Round Play Mat looks perfect in this soothing nursery! This lucky bubba will be able to kick and play in squishy safety, have some nudie time without worrying about mess, and enjoy a wiggly nappy change (or 100) without Mum worrying about them falling off the change table.

Meet the M&B team! ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿปโ €
โ €
Tonight we wanted to take the opportunity before things get crazy, to say Hi and introduce everyone. Scroll through ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป to see all our (camera shy, awkward) faces, including the guys in the warehouse who pack your orders and the angels in our office who answer all your questions and design your fav products! โ €
โ €
Feel free to leave them a hello message (they work really hard behind the scenes and arenโ€™t as lucky as us to have a direct link to you via the socials!) ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—โ €
โ €
Also, we have popped up a quick Christmas message from each of us on our Insta Stories. โ €
๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜

So, we have a little news! โ €
โ €
โ €
We knew when we launched M&B that we would love designing beautiful products for your families. But what has surprised us, is how much we LOVE engaging with this wonderful, kind online community. ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— โ €
โ €
Whenever we share a personal parenting anecdote, a mum hack or #mumlife meme (which, fun fact are always written by us about our experiences in the parenting trenches btw - no reposts needed over here! ๐Ÿ˜‚) reading your comments as they flood in and watching you connect and share stories is our favourite! It always reminds us that we are all in this together and that if youโ€™re going through a parenting phase, lots of other mums are too! โ €
โ €
Sahhh, we have decided to expand on this and launch the M&B Files. A place to share stories, tips and tricks, laugh at our mum fails, update you on our small business journey and of course throw in some interiors, fashion and style for the ride!โ €
โ €
We have kicked it off by loading some fab articles from our team that we hope you enjoy (link to M&B Files in our profile) โ €
โ €
WANT TO WRITE FOR US? โ €
Also very soon we are going to ask YOU if you want to CONTRIBUTE. โ €
We want any budding authors or Mums in our tribe with something to share, to submit your very own stories and articles! Our favourite ones will be featured on the M&B Files and WIN awesome prizes, so stay tuned for more info soon! โ €
โ €
Happy Reading ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜โ €

@threebirdsreno perfection ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป, but WHERE did you put all the homemade, brightly coloured kindy ornaments? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚โ €
โ €
Do you hide them at the back of the tree like the rest of us? ๐Ÿ˜‰ โ €
โ €
This tree (and the stunning room!) is giving me allllllll the #christmasgoals (future goals that is, when my kids are 18 and sneaking out so I can decorate in peace ๐Ÿ˜‰).โ €
โ €
How are the Mummas of crawlers and toddlers coping with the ornament + tree + curious child situation so far? ๐Ÿคฏ
Hang in there, just 21 days to go! โ €

#christmasiscoming #countingdownโ €

Behind every angelic instagram image of a new baby, is a Mumma whoโ€™s body has been through A WHOLE LOT! โ €
โ €
Sometimes we pass these changes off as the new โ€œnormalโ€ right (like niggling lower back pain, an aching pelvis ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ, or peeing when you sneeze? ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ) โ €
โ €
Well, you shouldn't and here's whyโ€ฆโ €
