My Child Magazine – a great read for parents with FREE subscription
One of the best baby gifts I was given when I had Miss E was a subscription to My Child Magazine (thanks Mum!)
It’s always nice to receive something in the post on a regular basis and with a newborn I had a fair bit of downtime to relax with a magazine and a cup of tea…
These days, I have a 5 year old at school and 3 year old who never stops. With the associated school runs, entertaining, cleaning and working 5 nights, my magazine downtime is pretty much non existent – let’s not even get started on a hot cup of tea… Seriously? Do they actually still exist? I’m pretty sure they disappeared along with long showers and unaccompanied toilet time.
So I was pretty excited to find out that My Child magazine was now available online to subscribe to for free. This means I can read it on my phone or iPad. Wherever and whenever I want to. Bed – without the light on so I don’t disturb A1’s sleep (cause a man has to sleep right? Insert undignified snort *here*) or in the school car park before school pickup and Master O has invariably fallen asleep in the car. Anywhere people!!
The magazine still covers what you need to know, from pregnancy to baby to kids. There are parenting tips, fashion, interior, yummy recipes, and my favourite – as always – party ideas. The June issue featured a beautiful 1st Birthday Party – loving the sweet pastel hues of this party, with lots of simple ideas layered up to great effect. The July issue followed up with the cutest Very Hungry Caterpillar party with cute ideas different to those you see on Pinterest.
So we wanted to spread the word. If you want a good read, parenting advice, party ideas, heads up on new products etc. head on over to My Child Magazine and check out the current July issue. If you subscribe you also have the chance to win an Ergo 360 Baby carrier…
