In 2015, Coin de Rêve's founder Kajsa Cavallin was pregnant with her second child. In the search for baby clothes for the arrival of little brother, there was no existing brand that really hit the spot. "Either the ethical aspect was missing or the color scale was too garish, the materials not nice or the price was too high."
Time for a children's party with a ghost theme, a Halloween party or an All Saints' Day celebration with your friends? At our house, it was a combination of a birthday party and trick-or-treating on October 31. I love tinkering and tinkering and had the goal of setting up snacks that look fun and spooky and scary, that contain one or two vitamins alongside all the sweets AND that the kids actually like :)

Monday again, here comes this week's menu. Two vegetarian dishes, one of which is soup. This week I'm especially excited to try the quick chili and the salmon patties. Previous weeks' blog posts are now all updated with reviews, come in and have a look!
Many new parents find it difficult to know how much to dress their baby for the first time if it falls during the winter months. Often you are afraid that he will freeze. Then it might be good to remember that it is much more common to dress your baby too much than too little. We offer more greattips about how to think when you go out into the cold with your little nugget.
No particular theme for the week, but if we have something lying around in the fridge or freezer, of course I always try to include it in the menu. This week, that meant spitting. As a bonus, I will also share with you a very good and extremely simple recipe for cold yeast rolls that are great for breakfast (or soup!). A nice way to feel at home with minimal effort :)
The theme for week 40 is "take-what-we-have-in-the-fridge-and-freeze" because it is needed here at home. Hope you find a dish you feel you have to make and don't forget to check out previous weeks blog posts for reviews of everything we've cooked. Always updated when I post the new weekly menu.
New week soon and the planning is done (thanks CDR for that:)). Maybe now it's happening: all the children eat fish! At least we have a new recipe to try. This week's menu also includes meat pies a la my sister Tove (who co-founded Coin de Rêve), minestrone soup without celery and a creamy tomato and parmesan pasta that we know everyone likes.
New with us: every week we will post our weekly menu in the blog. At the end of the week, update the post with what our children thought of it: a 2-year-old, an 8-year-old and an 11-year-old. The focus is that it should be simple, that it should challenge the children a bit and that it should be varied.

Baby alpaca comes from the alpaca, a wonderfully charming animal originating in the Peruvian Andes. The term "baby" has nothing to do with the age of the alpaca, but simply classifies the very finest wool from an alpaca. And apart from the fact that the alpaca is very cute, there are a number of qualities that we particularly want to highlight in terms of its excellence for babywear. These have contributed to giving baby alpaca its premium status.
