    Did you miss us? Wait, don’t answer that! - with Sophie and Jayde

    Did you miss us? Wait, don’t answer that! - with Sophie and Jayde

    In our 110th episode of Beyond the Bump, we do a bit of a recap of what we've been up to over the festive break.
    We asked you guys to send in any stories of your festive season. There were highs, there were lows, there were gifting disasters, there were all sorts of things. 
    So, know that if you had highs, you're not alone. If you had lows, you're not alone. If you had COVID, you're definitely not alone because there was a lot of that.
    And yeah, we hope you absolutely LOVE this episode!
     
    Just a quick warning, in this episode, we do talk about the mythology of Santa! There is also a lot of piss and poo talk too. So yeah, if you're feeling generally queasy, maybe steer clear!

    This episode of Beyond the Bump is brought to you by Kiwi Co:
    Jayde, do you have any top activities that you would like to do with your kids this year?  
    Well, the girls are into dancing, which is great, and I love activities that Yumi can do at home with or without me.
    Preferably without!
    Exactly. We've actually already received our two monthly subscriptions from Kiwi Co. 
    What about you, Sophie?  
    Nice. Well, without stating the obvious, parks, beaches, anything outdoors is my kind of parenting. But Poppy and Goldie also love when we receive our Panda Crate subscription box for those rainy days or the slow days or the days that we just want to stay inside.
    So, for anyone listening, that has no idea what we are talking about, Panda Crate is a subscription box filled with playful, open-ended activities backed by research and designed especially for naturally curious and creative babies and toddlers.
    Exactly. With a Panda Crate Subscription from Kiwi Co, your baby or child receives a new crate filled with two months’ worth of products and content every other month. 
    So, whether you have a new newborn or a toddler, the Panda Crate is perfect for your little one’s developing brain. 
    Now the Panda Crate is designed just for infants and toddlers. Every crate comes with a magazine and activity card featuring research-backed content and activities to nurture your little ones.

    And Yumi loves a game where she can get physical, so she’s been going crazy with Peek-A-Boo Base, where you press down one animal puzzle and another piece pops up else-were.

    Um stars, reckon you could help me out here? - with astrologer Kristy Gray

    Our Bonus 107th episode of Beyond the Bump is a little bit of a different one - it's not necessarily parenting related, but we feel like the things we talk about can get taken and adapted to parenthood and life in general.  
    We chat with astrologer Kristy Gray. Kristy went through ours and our husbands’ natal charts and told us all about what our star signs, our sun and our moon says about us as people, our current state, and our future! 
    The stars are aligning people. So, get on board and have a listen. We hope you enjoy!

    This episode of Beyond the Bump is brought to you by Bugaboo:
    Bugaboo is a brand that is known and loved in many, many households across the world, including our own.
    They are known for their incredibly well built, sturdy and equally sexy looking prams, but what some may not know is that they now do portacots too. 
    Now we’re sure there are lots of listeners out there who up until this point have had absolutely no need for a portacot as their bub’s entire life, the furthest they've had to venture is from the lounge room to the nursery.  
    But with things opening back up soon, this sponsorship could not have come at a better time. 
    We have been trialling the new Bugaboo Stardust Portacot for the past couple of months or so, and the Stardust gets a tick of approval from Yumi and Goldie for its incredible comfort.

    But more importantly, let's be honest, a tick of approval from us as it unfolds so simply in just one second and folds down in just three. 
    And there are no parts or pieces to keep track of for the assembly; it's all in one. It's also lightweight, so whether you're dumping the kids at the grandparent's house or regrettably taking them to a fancy resort with you, it's easy to get from A to B.
    If you want to check out the Bugaboo Stardust Portacot for yourself head to bugaboo.com or we both have a reel on our Instagram pages showing you just how easy this thing is.
