ettitude has some pretty fabulous and inspiring supporters. This Mother’s Day we sat down with a select few of them to learn more about their experiences being mothers and how they manage to balance it all!
Team ettitude: What do you love the most about Motherhood?
Bianca Koch: That every day Willow is learning something new (and that goes for me too!) It’s the most wonderful feeling to know I get to help foster her sense of adventure and wonder.
TE: What are your favourite things to do or share with your daughter?
BK: Willow loooves the beach, and we’re lucky to live close by to a beautiful bay. From a very early age she has loved to crawl about in the sand and study anything that takes her fancy. As my husband and I go along beside her we pick up any rubbish we find as we believe it’s important to teach Willow that we are each guardians of the earth.
Now that Willow’s getting a little older we also like to curl up on rainy days and watch a movie together – that’s always been a dream of mine!
TE: What is the best advice you’ve received for balancing life and motherhood?
BK: Nourish yourself and your needs! It’s the old “fill your own cup first” saying but it’s true! Lean on your support people and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
TE: What are your top tips for recharging and staying well-rested?
BK: Completely switch off from technology every once in a while, and sleep without access to your phone to stop the temptation to check Instagram during those middle of the night feeds. Creating a zen environment and investing in quality bedding are my top two musts for that all important mama recharge time.
TE: What’s your favourite mother’s day pick from ettitude?
BK: I’ve got my eye on the bamboo lyocell sleep shirt, in ‘cloud pink’ of course, for that extra cosy dreamy layer in winter with easy breastfeeding access for Willow.
