Starting up & Staying Sane: Q&A with Mush Co Founder Katie Massie-Taylor

Nothing beats spending time with our kids, but taking and making the time to talk, laugh and share the ‘pain’ with other grown-ups is totally key to staying sane as a parent. Losing touch with our friends, and struggling to make new ones, is such a regular occurrence for many mums especially, which is why we’ve always loved the idea of MUSH – the app for helping mums meet more mates nearby. And we’re not alone – hundreds of thousands of mums now use Mush across the UK and beyond. With it being Stress Awareness Month, we’re focusing on how …

My top tips for staying fit with kids in tow

We’re delighted to have Personal trainer (Pre & Post-Natal fitness qualified) and Mum, Emily Winter – aka Earn Your Roast – as a guest blogger on bubble. Here, she gives her top tips for staying fit whilst having the kids around. As a mum, I understand the challenges that come with prioritising yourself.

This bubble hasn’t burst

Jenny, founder of parenting forum, Mamazou, on her first ever bubble experience… When Bubble first came out, I was skeptical.  The more I researched, the more of a cynic I became.  Don’t get me wrong, I thought the concept was pretty genius – but for a control freak with trust issues, aka me… did I really want to leave my child with someone I just booked via an app? When I met Ari, the co-founder of Bubble, to find ways we could collaborate – I was straight up and shared my concern as to why I felt Bubble wasn’t for …

Thousands of parents across the UK are now booking babysitters on bubble every single day and two things we see quite clearly are: For many parents leaving our kids with a babysitter for the first time can be daunting. And… Booking a sitter is no longer something we only do for special occasions or Saturday nights.

11 reasons why Mums are superheroes

We all know our Mums are bonafide heroes, but which superhero would your Mum be? Probably all of your favourites wrapped into one, because when it comes to super-powers – they’ve got the lot. 1.  They can appear in 3 places at once.  School pick-up, work meeting and your sister’s dentist appointment all at once? Sure. No problem. 2. They can crush you with a silent stare. Normally reserved for those times when you did something really bad and rather than scream at you, they just stared in disappointment, saying absolutely nothing at all. The shame! 3. They’re saving us …
