As you might know, almost two years ago I switched to cloth nappies after three years of disposables. Today, having experienced it all—the good, bad and the ugly—and knowing what… Read More
With this post, I’m starting a series of tutorial to make your own Montessori mobiles, which all aim at developing sight, baby’s attention skills, color and depth perception.
For the past 12 nights, Oliver went from waking up almost every hour to sleeping 12 hours a night and putting himself to sleep in the evening. What we did is something that I had sworn I’d never do: we let him cry it out (sort of, with a caring twist). And I recommend it.
The Dancers is the forth Montessori mobile that I made for Oliver and it’s also the last one: after this, we started with the series of the grasping and pulling mobiles.

Today I’ll take you around our apartment to show you how we “montessorised” it: starting at 12 months, in fact, it’s not only about your kid’s bedroom, but also about all the other environments in the the house.
After the post about our prepared environment until Oliver was 6 months old, many of you asked how it evolved. So finally today I’m going to tell you just that. Prepared environment for babies 7-8 months old.
Woom 2 (3-4.5 years) is a light 14″ kid bike, well thought out in every detail.
This is Oliver’s first prepared environment, that stayed the same till he was 6 months old. If you’re taking the first steps into the Montessori philosophy, find out what the prepared environment is.
After three years of disposable nappies, we switched to cloth nappies and washable wipes for Emily. This is how I did it.
Some while ago I watched the season finale of HBO’s Girls Season 3. Hannah, whose greatest passion is to write, gets into Iowa Writer’s Workshop, at the same time as things go south with her boyfriend Adam. They split up and everybody thinks she’s going to be devastated. Instead, she goes home, looks at the admission letter from the Iowa University and smiles.
Last night Oliver slept in his montessori room and in his homemade big-boy montessori bed for the first time. He’s three months old, and many could—and will—argue that he’s too young, it’s too soon, too risky, too everything. But we decided to raise him following the Montessori method which also means to give him as much independence as possible starting as soon as possible.
This is a home tour with photos of our new apartment, which I think we managed to furnish in a very montessori, functional, yet beautiful way.
