Well Rounded in SF: Katie Hintz

Senior West Coast Editor of Refinery29 Katie Hintz tells all about being a Well Rounded mama in San Francisco.

Well Rounded in SF: Katie Hintz

I first met Katie Hintz well over four years ago when she was still living in NYC and working as a freelance writer. As the editor of a men’s magazine I assigned her stories about menswear and other very unbaby-related things. While we’ve both moved onto new endeavors, we’ve kept in touch. I, like many, watched her gorgeous belly grow though instagram and her always covetable style reach new levels with it. Now the Senior West Coast Editor of Refinery29.com, Katie resides in San Francisco, but still encompasses exactly what it means to be a Well Rounded mama. So we could not deny you New York ladies a look at now brand-new-mama Katie, right before she gave birth to her son Diego. Here she tells Well Rounded more about her pregnancy style, nursery inspiration and how she deals with space.

    You will always be their safe space, mama

    You are their haven. Their harbor. Their sanctuary, their peace. You are comfort. Deep breaths. Hugs and back rubs. You're a resting place, a nightmare chaser, a healer. You are the calm within their storm. You are their mother.

    To your child, you are safety. You are security. You are where (out of anyone or any place), they can come undone. Where they can let it all out, let it all go. Where they meltdown, break down, scream, cry, push.

    Where they can say—"I AM NOT OKAY!"

    Where they can totally lose it. Without judgment or fear or shame.

    Because they know you'll listen. They know you'll hear them. That you will help piece the mess back together.

    A Montessori-inspired gift guide—for newborns to 6-year-olds

    There are plenty of Montessori-friendly toys that are beautiful and engaging, but also appeal to children's developmental needs.

    With so many toys out there, it can be hard to find intentional gifts for our children that are both fun and meaningful. Using a Montessori approach to your shopping doesn't mean your choices need to be academic. There are plenty of Montessori-friendly toys that are beautiful and engaging, but also appeal to children's developmental needs.

    Montessori toys are usually made from natural materials, non-electronic and foster independent play, creativity and concentration. Montessori materials are simple and somewhat minimalist in general, and this is especially true for infants and young toddlers. The world is so stimulating for these little ones already, that simple toys made of natural materials spark the child's curiosity without being overwhelming.

    These pics of a big brother and baby sister are too sweet.

    Ryder Robinson

    To be born close in age to your siblings is a special experience. You have a built-in playmate and BFF for life, but being born after an age gap certainly has its benefits, too.

    Parents who are expecting again when their older children are already into double digits may wonder what the sibling bond will look like when the kids have more than a decade between them. Well, look no further, because Kate Hudson's oldest son, 14-year-old Ryder Robinson took to Instagram to show the world that while he and baby Rani Rose may not be playmates they have an equally powerful sibling bond.
