Your Name:

Lauren

Blog Name:

Belle du Brighton

What are the sexes and ages of your children?:

One baby daughter, 9 months!

What got you into parent blogging?:

I’ve had a blog since 2011, posting mainly lifestyle type posts and there was no way I was going to leave being a mama off the blog, so I documented my pregnancy, birth and life as a mama on the blog!

What is your top parenting tip to share with our readers? Can be on any topic for little ones :-) (under 8s):

Trust your instinct, it will always be right!  Also, when people give you ‘helpful’ advice, just smile, nod and say thank you. Then choose if you wish you use it or not! People feel so much better if they think they have helped and it’s not worth getting into debates about your style vs their style!

Can you share a parenting advice post with us from your blog too; your favourite one? Why do you like this post? Please include the link for us.:

So its written with my usual slightly cynical outlook on life, but seriously some of these things are just daft (though I am now a fan of
the nailclippers!)

What not to waste your money on: for Babies

Who’s your favourite parent blogger at the moment and why? Please include a link to their blog home page.:

Hmmmm, tricky one this as I read so many! Currently I think www.redheadbabyled.com is my favourite!

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parent blog! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 80%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!

Well put about smiling and nodding when you get given advice, far better than getting into big arguments over whose way is best. #blogclub

I totally agree about smiling and nodding when given advice. It's so much easier and stops friendships/family relationships becoming strained! I must admit, the best piece of advice I was given when I was pg with my first came from my dad. He told me to start a bedtime routine straight away and stick to it. I'm glad I took that advice! #blogclub
