About
Are you no longer phased by going out in public with someone else’s vomit on your shoulder? Do you find yourself awake at 3 am, feeding the newest addition to your family thinking “Am I the only person alive right now? It’s so lonely!” Then you are in the Baby Bubble and at Mamamia, we thought you might need a little company. The Baby Bubble is the podcast for parents trying to behave like competent humans on two hours of sleep or for people who don’t have kids but are curious about what you do with tiny people who just poop and cry all day. Each week join mum of one, Zoe Marshall and father of twins, Sean Szeps, for a no BS conversation about what to expect way after the expecting bit is over. Think of this show as your lifeline in the witching hour, a place you can call when you’ve just got your baby to put something in its mouth instead of the floor or a warm set of audio arms that are here to wrap you up when you’re losing your mind and tell you “it’s going to be ok!”

The Six Month Check Up No Mum Asked For

It’s time for the six month check up, which is apparently a thing we weren’t aware of. So, how are we fairing in the baby bubble thus far? Well, we’re still being kept awake at night by the concerning shape of our babies heads, but at least we’re raising tiny geniuses.  But maybe that’s just our parenting toxic traits coming out to play…  THE END BITS Subscribe to Mamamia Listen to more episodes of The Baby Bubble here To go in the running to win a $50 gift voucher complete the survey here CREDITS Hosts: Clare Stephens & Jessie StephensProducer: Taylah StranoAudio Producer: Thom Lion Mamamia acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land we have recorded this podcast on, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

I Tried To Leave The House And Now Everyone's Crying

Leaving the house pre-baby: get ready, grab phone and keys, leave. Now: it's been four hours and two changes later, we're all crying and I've forgotten a spare onsie. From forgetting what to pack, a negativity toward umbrellas and a magic bag these are all the ways we've survived, not thrived, leaving the house. (If only for a walk around the block which is a huge accomplishment TBH).  THE END BITS Subscribe to Mamamia Listen to more episodes of The Baby Bubble here To go in the running to win a $50 gift voucher complete the survey here CREDITS Hosts: Clare Stephens & Jessie StephensProducer: Taylah StranoAudio Producer: Thom Lion Mamamia acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land we have recorded this podcast on, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

Find Your Village & Get The F**k Out Of My House

The village is there for the vibes. Nothing says “here if you need” like rocking up unannounced, disrupting the routine, dirtying some dishes and then ducking out when the baby starts crying.' They say it takes a village… but what they forget to tell you is that the village can kind of be annoying. Look, we’re not being ungrateful. Mostly, we’re just really bored & tired.

Boobs, Bottles And BTW You're Doing Everything Wrong

Feeding is weirdly high stakes… Whether you’re breastfeeding, formula feeding or dare we say it bottle feeding, everyone’s got an opinion on how to do it better. The fun thing about giving your baby nutrients is that it’s uniquely cooked for every individual. And don’t even get us started on breast pumps.

"Hi. Um, I Don't Know You"

I don't mean to be rude, but who tf are you?Let's be honest, giving birth is like the most intense first date ever.You show up at the designated place nervously excited to meet your date, only for them to show up late and basically whinge the whole time.And then you're obligated to be with them.

The Antidote To Messy Babies

It’s the final episode of season one of The Baby Bubble and Zoe is sick.  So the fabulous Holly Wainwright is stepping in to join Sean and share her parenting wisdom. Mess is a huge part of having kids but wouldn’t it be great if you could leave a room with your children without it looking like a bomb has gone off?  Sean has managed to train his babies to clean up after themselves and it didn’t involve nagging or bribery. Get the pen and paper ready! Plus, with everyone talking about the importance of kids finding their own identity what role do gendered clothes play?  Both Sean and Holly made a point of trying to dress their kids in a way that wasn’t traditionally gendered but they realised kids often find their own way there anyway.  So how much is nature and how much is nurture? And the parenting books are littered with advice on all the things we’re not supposed to be doing with our babies.  But is it possible to follow the rules all the time or is it more important just to get through the day?

And have you ever heard of gender disappointment?  A friend of Sean’s shared her story of being disappointed by the gender of her baby and the guys weigh in on whether they felt it with their own kids.

Should You Put A Leash On Your Child?

Last week Sean and Zoe talked about their experiences with postnatal depression and we were flooded with your calls and emails.   Today they shared an email from Sorena who told us about her experience… “So many days I also wanted to run away, go overseas and start a new life.  But I loved my tiny little baby sooooo much so I would make myself sit for hours, not doing anything, just to not pack up and leave! What Sean said about seeing his husband see him go through it and withdrawing hit so close to home.  It was such a hard time for us, mainly because I was so withdrawn, trying to be a perfect mum and completely neglecting myself and my husband.” Then we talk about what to do when your kids discover your genitalia.  How do you talk to them about it in a way that helps them learn? And should you put a leash on your kid?  Zoe is all for it because she’s sick of chasing Fox around but Sean isn’t convinced. All this and more on The Baby Bubble...

How To Feed Your Baby Without A Blender

Welcome to the very first episode of The Baby Bubble with your hosts Zoe Marshall and Sean Szeps. In this episode Zoe shares her feelings about parenting and admits she didn't always want to be a mum.  But now she's OBSESSED.  Sean talks about his experience with surogacy and why he asked his mum if she'd like to donate her eggs.  He also talks about why him and his husband, Josh Szeps, decided to try for twins, even though that scares most potential parents. They dive deep on baby led weaning.  What is it and does it really work?  Sean's twins have just eaten something with a fork and he's smug as hell.  If your dream is to get your baby off puree'd mush you need to listen.   Zoe brags about the fact she had nine hours sleep the night before, which doesn't go down well since Sean only got an hour.  But fear not, she doesn't have a miracle baby.  It's all because of some strict sleep training.  Want to take part in our survey?

Coming Soon: The Baby Bubble

Are you no longer phased by going out in public with someone else’s vomit on your shoulder? Do you find yourself awake at 3 am, feeding the newest addition to your family thinking “Am I the only person alive right now? It’s so lonely!” Then you are in the Baby Bubble and at Mamamia, we thought you might need a little company. The Baby Bubble is the podcast for parents trying to behave like competent humans on two hours of sleep or for people who don’t have kids but are curious about what you do with tiny people who just poop and cry all day. Each week join mum of one, Zoe Marshall and father of twins, Sean Szeps, for a no BS conversation about what to expect way after the expecting bit is over. Think of this show as your lifeline in the witching hour, a place you can call when you’ve just got your baby to put something in its mouth instead of the floor or a warm set of audio arms that are here to wrap you up when you’re losing your mind and tell you “it’s going to be ok!” The Baby Bubble is the latest show from Mamamia podcasts and it’s hitting your ears January 31st.
