Open letter to my daughter on her 11th birthday

I’m writing this open letter to my daughter on her 11th birthday as my second inspiration for creating Bubbaroo. Both my children are very different people and the way that I parent my son is very different to how I parent my daughter.  My “old soul” daughter has definitely been here before.  The one wish I have for my daughter is to use her potential and the opportunities given to her to make a difference in this world!  I look forward to guiding and supporting her on this life’s journey.

Here are some simple tips I’ve learnt along the way to make travelling with your baby easier.
