I’m thrilled to welcome Binky Felstead onto the podcast this week! Binky shot to fame when she appeared on TV show Made In Chelsea and two years ago, she became a mum to her daughter India.

It was so lovely to chat to Binky and we covered a lot of ground - her parenting style, how she’s keen to have a relaxed approach but with fairly strict boundaries and what she thinks she’s learned from her own mum – the good and the bad!

We talk about her new relationship with her partner Max, and how she’s navigated that, as a mum. Binky also tells me about her experiences of being mum shamed - something so many of us have experienced, whether it’s a social media comment from someone being a bit snooty about you giving your kid fish fingers, or how much screen time they’re having.

You can follow Binky on Instagram, check out her Mummy Tribe retreats and take a look at the Bubble babysitting app she mentions.

Here’s a link to the blog post I mention, on kids using tech and parental controls.
