Mums in the Picture of Health


As young mums and mums to be you are all aware that healthy habits are the best way to stay on track with your weight and in turn optimise the energy you have for your families.

These past few months, we have given you a few home truths and ways to access the best you can be through wholesome routines. Here is a little reminder if you are finding yourselves slipping during the winter months. No need to diet, just follow these good advices and remain in tip top shape: editors note by Debra.

Irrefutable Facts of Health

The following facts have been shown and proven time and time again to be the foundation of optimal weight, health and overall wellness.

  • A plant based diet, especially rich in proteins, promotes optimal health, quality of life and longevity.
  • Our modern diet of processed, refined foods is the cause of many preventable diseases that are now prevalent, such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity and some cancers.
  • Exercise promotes health and reverses ill health.
  • A sedentary lifestyle increase risk of most diseases; it actually causes genes associated with disease to become active.

Irrefutable Facts on Weight and Fat Loss

Manage stress: Stress will make you fat. Stress causes the release of many hormones that inhibit fat loss and promote fat storage. The hormones released stimulate you to eat more, by craving high calories foods and alcohol which give you a dopamine hit which makes you feel good to relieve stress. Therefore, take practical steps to manage stress.

Get eight hours sleep: 7-8 hours sleep is the optimal level of sleep required for health but also to keep fat storing hormones in the correct balance. Sleeping less than 6 hours is not good! Poor quality sleep or insufficient sleep causes the release of hormones which cause you to move less and eat more the next day.

Exercise: The greater the frequency, the intensity and the duration of exercise the better the fat loss results. Aim for a minimum of 4 sessions per week.

Activity: In addition to exercise, you need to be physically active everyday for 60-90 minutes which equates to 8,000 – 12,000 steps per day on a pedometer. Incorporate more walking and activity into your day.

Eat when you are hungry: It sounds over simplified but you should eat according to your natural needs. Eat more if you are hungry and eat less if you are not. We tend to over eat, if you are not hungry just eat a small meal. There is now no research to PROVE eating 5 small meals per day is better for weight loss. However, you need to eat good quality food and chew thoroughly so you do not over eat.

Alcohol: You are not going to like this one. If you drink more than 5 drinks per WEEK you are going to negatively affect weight loss!

We would be interested to hear your thoughts and personal experiences on healthy habits.

So here is to good eating, lots of fresh air and great health.

My three-year-old had a seemingly ‘endless’ runny nose with watery eyes, sneezing and chest congestion. Thanks to your article on homeopathy for babies we were able to naturally treat her condition. She is now perfectly fine and we use those natural remedies on ourselves too when the seasons changes. Thank you very much for your quality articles. — Alexandre
Last fall, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Bonjour Baby via a giveaway over at the ecoxpo. They had a great display and hosted a giveaway and I won an organic cotton mini bunny. It was perfect timing too, as my little girl was just born. He loves his new cuddly friend. I haven't gone back to use any other resource platform again. Your articles are very high quality and I love your selection of products too. The Bonjour Baby products are truly amazing! I always look forward to your new articles and products. — Millie, Sydney
I just wanted to let you know that our kanoe has basically saved my life and my marriage. It has changed our lives completely. My daughter now takes at least 3 naps a day! Before I had this Kanoe I was never able to get her to sleep except for when she would fall asleep on me nursing (...) I just wish I had known about it earlier. Thank you for making our life a little easier :) — Megan Williams
Thank you Bonjour Baby, you have done a fantastic job. We discovered you from a friend and you have inspired us to live a bit greener once our little one arrived a few months ago. My sister and I are continuously looking for your new articles, as we want what is best for our bubs. So thank you again for all these quality articles. — Magda and Jenny, Alstonville
I would just like to say how much I love Bonjour Baby! They are really fantastic! I recently emailed some about baby care to some other mums in my parenting group and now my whole parenting group are all devoted Bonjour Baby fans! I’m just so glad your website is available, thank you again and keep up the great work! — Amalia, Wakerley QLD
Every time my little girl has her bath, after using your products (we have the entire range) our whole family would comment on how our little ones smells! We all love your products, cannot give enough praise for them. The quality of your articles are also a great resource for the new parents wanting to raise a sustainable baby like us! Much love — Sangeeta, Neutral Bay
