Four Ways to have fun with your baby

Your baby is finally here, what a wonderful feeling! Life is busier than ever with your new baby, in fact at times you may feel exhausted. This is totally normal! Finding ways to incorporate and enjoy precious time with your new baby is a must. Along with feeding, changing, burping and doing laundry, finding activities to enjoy with your baby helps him or her develop and grow and will help mommy to enjoy and de-stress. New babies explore with their senses; taste, sight, smell, sound, and touch. There are simple and fun activities to incorporate into your day to make things fun for you and baby.

1. Explore Together: Sights, Tastes & Sounds

  • Let's stroll: take a walk outside, get fresh air for you and baby. It doesn't really matter where you go, but getting out for fresh air and a change of scenery is good for both mommy and baby. So whether you are visiting a favorite coffee shop, a marketplace, or a local park, both of you will feel stimulated and refreshed with a simple change of scene.
  • Diva time: explore mommy's closet. Yes, explore items in your closet! I know it may sound strange, but babies love different sensations and sights. Play peek-a-boo with a scarf, let baby touch different textures. Show them sparkles and glittering fabrics; fun for mom and baby too.
  • Walkabout: take a walk about your home or yard. Point out things to look at, let baby touch items, look into mirrors (babies love to see their reflection), turn lights off and on, or play music and just share your home with baby.

2. Get Moving: Babies Love to Move

  • Yoga motions: there are many baby and me yoga classes, books, and tapes to get you and your baby started in a shared exercise program. It's great to help moms get back into shape, and feel refreshed. Babies benefit from bonding with mommy, as well as increased movements, and body awareness.
  • Dance party: turn on music and dance with baby, rock, sway, and bounce; babies enjoy movement. Laugh, smile and just move, great for your baby’s development and uplifting your mood. Change the melody and the movements, just have fun and be a little silly.

3. Mommy & Me Time

  • Storytime: share reading with your baby. Read a colorful storybook. You don't even have to read word for word, baby won't know! Showing colorful pictures and talking is enough for baby. Remember babies attention spans are short so spending time cuddling and reading to a baby can be short and sweet. After reading to baby snuggle and read for yourself. Reading to your baby builds their language skills and provides time to connect with your baby.
  • Splish splash: splash in the sink, bathtub or baby pool, fun for baby and cool and refreshing for mom.

4. Get Artsy: Keepsake Moments:

If you love taking photos, making crafts, or just making memories to share as your baby grows, there and many fun ways to incorporate your interests and your baby. Here are a few ideas for you and baby to “get artsy” together. You can find many more great ideas with directions on Pinterest.

  • Mini photoshoot: use props to set the stage for a baby photo shoot. Create a cute backdrop or setting and snap some photos of your cutie pie. Fun for baby and a photo-loving mom.
  • Finger painting: let baby smush and mush their finger (and toes) in the paint and let them go wild on paper or canvas. This is a special keepsake for mom, and fun for baby
  • Baby journal: jot down notes, save mementos and makes memories for you and baby by keeping a baby journal. Add baby “art” and photos and save it as a special keepsake.

Taking time to enjoy your baby, and not just provide for its basic needs, will keep both of you healthier and happier. Try lots of different activities, and discover which ones you and your baby enjoy most.

Size Guide Clothing

YOUR GUIDE TO FINDING THE RIGHT SIZE FOR YOUR CHANGING SHAPE

Unsure what size to buy? Mayarya offers an array of style solutions to suit your changing shape. From cleverly designed maternity friendly but not maternity only dresses with discreet nursing access to maternity pants with stretchy elasticated waistbands that can adjust to your post-partum shape too.

Find out what styles work for your stage of pregnancy and beyond!

How does Mayarya sizing work?

Mayarya follows international sizing standard. We take every effort to keep our sizing true and consistent and we want you to be able to wear the same size across all garment types in Mayarya. However, there will be occasional variations in the fit of some products depending on the style and fabric.

How does the size guide work?

The first step to determine which size to buy is by measuring your body size. Before you start measuring, remember to use non-stretchable tape and to keep the tape close to your body without depressing it. We aligned our products to the body measurements of the International Sizing Chart.

  • For Tops and Dresses, please measure your bust. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your chest (at nipple level).
  • For Bottoms, please measure your under belly or under hip. Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your hips and just below your bump.

Please see our 'Mayarya Clothing Size Guide' below for more details:

  • CM
  • INCH

Please Note:

  • Our measurements indicate the maximum size within a range. For example, if your bust measurement is 89cm (35 inch), and under belly measurement is 95cm (37 1/2 inch), then you would wear a size S
  • Our model's average measurements during pregnancy: Waist (98cm / 38.5 inch) - Bust (90cm / 35.4 inch) - Hip (95cm / 37.4 inch) - Height (175cm / 5'8 inch)
  • Our model's average measurements not pregnant: Waist (68cm / 26.8 inch) - Bust (90cm / 35.4 inch) - Hip (95cm / 37.4 inch) - Height (175cm / 5'8 inch)
  • Our model wears size S for tops, dresses and bottoms

 

BOTTOMS

Bottoms are one of the first items you realize your belly started growing! At Mayarya, we have under belly and over belly styles to accommodate your style and comfort needs.

Under Belly Pants, Treggings and Leggings

They sit below your growing bump and are particularly great during warmer seasons as it means less layers for your bump. A great solution for women with very sensitive skin as it does not cover your belly. Mayarya's under the belly pants look much like regular pants with stretchy, elasticized waistband so you can continue wearing them post-pregnancy too!

Over Belly Pants and Leggings

They are particularly great if you want some support around your belly. We choose breathable and stretchy fabric so it will not restrict the growth of your baby. You can fold them down during the early stage of pregnancy, roll up during 2nd and 3rd trimesters and roll/fold them down post-pregnancy.

DRESSES AND TOPS

Our dresses and tops are designed for both pregnant and non-pregnant women in mind so you can wear them seamlessly post-pregnancy.

You can select your size according to your pre-pregnancy size since our clothes are designed to fit from your first trimester to your third trimester. 

Our smart design allows more room around your belly during pregnancy but falls down nicely on your body after pregnancy.

If you have gained more than the average pregnancy weight according to your doctor, you could go one size up from your pre-pregnancy size. If you are between two sizes, we recommend you pick the larger of two sizes.
