About Kaboutjie

Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog.

My name is Lynne and I live in Saldanha with my two children and husband.

Kaboutjie started off in 2012 as an online baby and toddler store that supplied quality clothing and baby products manufactured in South Africa. I launched the business just after I had my first child. I then also started selling wholesale baby clothing made in South Africa.

It was an incredible journey that included opening up a little shop in Langebaan which I ran for two years. My vision was to have a lovely successful business that I would be able to run while bringing up my children.

While learning how to drive traffic to my online store I started learning about blogging and I found my calling. It didn’t take me long to decide to close my online store and change my website to a parenting blog.

It is amazing to be able to support moms and share my passion for parenting, mental health, recipes and more on my website.

I love working with businesses to help them increase their reach online (check out my advertising page) as well as connecting with moms.

So please feel free to share your parenting experiences here, I look forward to hearing from you.

Since last year I started following @Kaboutjie it was the best decision I made. Every day on this page its a learning experience for me and many moms. I am free to ask a question and any moms would reply so it’s many answers from all angles. I even made my friends join this page . All the reviews from the nappies…purity…. Cotton on…Nativa products and now recently the Braai blog its just amazing. I love this page.

I absolutely love Kaboutjie! I have found so many helpful and informative articles that have answered many of my questions as a new mother! The advertising side has also been great to guide me into using reputable companies and of course who doesn’t love winning! There are always competitions to enter with amazing prizes ?
