The Flying Dutch Mom

When I am a day off and wanna do some homecleaning, I put my baby outside in the cold for her nap. Most Scandinavian parents find it absolutly normal. It’s a daily routine.

In Scandinavia, daytime temperatures in the winter is cold. That’s why we non-Scandinavians find it weird to see children left outside by their parents for a sleep in the pram, but nowdays I am use to it.

I take a nice cup of latte at Baresso (it’s like Star Bucks but Danisch version), take a deep breath, take a sip. Watching my baby through the window, sleeping 😉

And when I visiting my friends and little Tilly needs a nap, I just put her outside in the garden for a nap, or using my friend’s balcony.

My mother in law always told me, it’s good for the babies to have fresh air while sleeping. First I had scenario’s that my kid get cold or fever, but Tilly is totally fine.

In daycare they put Tilly also outside for a nap. Everyone get their own pram. The daycare suggest that. It’s good that they sleep outside. It’s healthier being outside. Especially when there’s many children at the daycare, less chance that they infect each other with diffrent kind of diseases they could have.


It’s never too late, and all you can do is try. Don’t give up and keep trying and reach out to the group on facebook plagiocephaly and get your support here! Together we are stronger! Follow your intuition. Mathilde is 8.5 months and received a helmet from Starband. She really looks adorable! Stay tuned if it’s really works! ❤

Everything should be as cheap as possible! I think it’s a shame to give than is strictly necessary. More money on things if it can be cheaper, why not? I buy buy deodorant and toothpaste alone with discount. At least once a month, this kind of products marked down. I love everything close watch over the internet. I focused on search websites. When I received junk mail, I bought many things I did not need.
I dislike folders, I got my app so I can see what’s on discount. Actually, everyone should be as an opponent of advertising material and receive them only if they appreciate it. That’s why I have a NO / NO sticker, for advertising and mail. Saves a lot of felling of trees.
Together with my fiance I hoard like crazy at a local supermarket. “We make a real sport. I try to get as possible. Discounts A cart of groceries for 40 instead of 80. That gives me a kick. I buy bread and freezes then. Even meat I often buy at a discount, for example, six steaks. Generally I buy at cheap supermarkets. Stuff stores them in her big freezer or pantry.

I save on groceries, but not on baby supplies or a gift for my daughter. Just because I let the little ones, can I afford this kind of spending. Food I will also throw away sin. My friends know that. They do food neatly in a box when I get there. I am not ashamed of anything. It is a fun sport and I’m honest about it.
Even though I have a job where I could earn a lot of money, there’s no reason to strike with bargain hunting. It’s just the principle. I just do not want to pay more if it can be done for less. My parents did so despite the fact that they had enough money.
