Peaches joins Mother&Baby to share her mummy moments and views on bringing up babies, from attachment parenting to juggling work and family
In the last few years, former party girl Peaches Geldof has undergone what can only be called a ‘mama metamorphosis’. These days, the 24-year-old is more likely to shun wild nights out in favour of cosy nights in with her two boys, Astala, 21 months and Phaedra, nine months, and husband Tom, 23. What hasn't changed is that she has her own ideas and opinions about motherhood - and whether it’s coping with two children-under-two, debating the benefits of attachment parenting or describing how she juggles motherhood and work, from the April issue of Mother&Baby (on sale 5 March) she'll be sharing them with you, in the magazine and here online.
She's no stranger to social media - and like many mums, uses it for support and company as well as entertainment. ‘It’s a community I can be part of, because I don’t have that thing of meeting up with other mums,’ she says. We know you'll join us in welcoming her to the Mother&Baby world!
Read more in the April issue of Mother&Baby, on sale in newsagents next Wednesday, but here's a little taster of what to expect...
Peaches on: Her surprise first pregnancy
‘At the end of the year I realised I was weeing constantly. I assumed my first baby was a bladder problem.’
Peaches on: Attachment parenting
‘A lot of people use it as an excuse to smother their kids, but that’s not healthy. It’s about fostering a secure attachment – it’s really good for them to have a strong bond.’
Peaches on: Juggling motherhood
‘You have no time for yourself, even on the toilet – you have a baby sitting on your lap while you’re having a poo, eating a sandwich at the same time. That’s what being a mum is. It’s not easy. It can be stressful, but it’s the most rewarding thing you will do.’
Peaches on: How being a mum has changed her
‘I wouldn’t say becoming a mum has defined who I am, but it’s definitely changed my life for the better. It’s broken me, but in the best possible way! Because if you ever want proof of miracles, look at your baby’s face.’
