"Flipping through the Jan 2014 issue, the Homeopathy article caught my eye. I've heard some conflicting information about homeopathy and it was helpful to come across more information in a publication I trust. I feel like MB&C knows me because they write about topics that interest me and do it in language I can understand. Thanks for sharing this article on homeopathy & I'm curious to see what I’ll learn in next month’s issue!" Melody Sazegar Social Media Manager JLT, Dubai
"Congratulations on your award-winning magazine, it's fun and informative!" Kamlu Roopani Publisher/Editor Dubai
"I have recently contacted you regarding your fantastic magazine. I was really impressed with the content of the articles, tips, advice and adverts. Unlike most baby magazines it is one of the few that you can buy to see you through from pregnancy right through to teenagers and that is a gap that is really missing in the market, even here in the UK! Having been an expat most of my life and living in Kuwait for 10 years, with frequent visits to Dubai, I know how important it is to have all this information at your fingertips to get involved and established as soon as you arrive somewhere foreign." Becky MB&C Fan Dubai
"We would like to send over a massive thanks to Mother Baby & Child magazine for their recent feature on us.

Dear Mother, Baby & Child, First of all, let me introduce myself. I’m Tatiana Morozova, one of the venerators of your magazine. I would like to say thank you for your magazine, it’s really very interesting and useful. Best Regards, Tatiana Morozova MB&C Fan UAE
Dear Mother, Baby & Child, I have recently moved to Dubai and enjoyed your latest issue of Mother, Baby and Child Magazine. Whilst at home in the UK before we came, we were very anxious about our move over here. However, we shouldn’t have been as the removal process went well and everything arrived in one piece and all the paperwork got completed. I wondered if you would like to run an article along these lines about moving houses and moving countries, especially with Dubai being such an international city with many expats moving from all over the world. You could maybe come from the angle of managing change for children ñ how do you explain it to them, living in a new country, what are . . .
I Love MB&C Magazine! This magazine really helps with all the interesting topics and features. It is a starting point for all new mums. I have truly enjoyed it and have given copies to my best friends and colleagues at work! Now, they all love reading it too! May I request if you could publish my son's photo; his name is Kinan Raoufi. He was born in Amman, Jordan last February 23rd of 2011. He is a very happy baby and loves to play with other children. He likes music and looking at books. Adding to that is his great love for travelling and going outdoors! Have a nice day! Best Regards, Mummy Dyala MB&C Fan UAE
Hi Dominique! Greetings for this jolly month! First, I would like to thank you for featuring my son's birthday and his picture in your lovely magazine. It really boosts his morale and he feels so happy. Thanks a ton for everything! Caroline D'Cunha MB&C Fan UAE
Dear Mother, Baby & Child Magazine, I just wanted to thank you for all of the tips that you provide for mums like me. As I am sure many readers are, I am an expat and a mother. It's very difficult to raise children in a place where you don't have your own familial support, but having your magazine's advice makes me feel much more comfortable. Also, I just wanted to say that I love your editor's pick section - it give us mummies some great tips on where to and where not to go. Thanks so much for making us feel at home when we are so far away from home! Rubu Saleh MB&C Fan UAE
Hello Dominique! Firstly, I would like to let you know that your magazine attracts me wherever I go it is not only helpful but also very interesting. I am sure a lot of mothers find it very informative too. It gives all the possible information that a mother would want. I always look forward to your next edition and lots of its activities too. It's all courtesy to you and your team who makes such an effort and gives us this entertainment and knowledge that is truly commendable. Because of this, we not only have expectations, but also it makes us feel more enthusiastic to take part or be a part of your privileged magazine. Congrats! I am sure with your innovative ideas it will go more ahead . . .
Good Day, MB&C! I would like to thank you for publishing my daughter's picture in birthday page. I received the magazine on January 5th at 9:00 am and holidays were still going on. So after waking up late, I opened the magazine and first checked the birthday page for my daughter's picture. I could see her picture I couldn't believe it, feeling like was dreaming! I went close to the window and saw that it was really she on the magazine! I jumped with joy and called my hubby to inform the same. HE was glad too! She wanted to take the magazine to school, but I was scared of losing it. We had her birthday party on the 13th and proudly she showed it to all her friends and their parents with a big . . .
Hi Dominique, I would First of all, Happy Mother's Day and heartiest congratulations for such a wonderful magazine! I am a regular subscriber and I always wait for my copy so desperately even first week of the month. It really brings a smile on my face whenever I read these beautiful articles. My daughter loves going through it just to look for a picture of herself...She had her photos taken during the two past MBC events at the Oasis Centre but, alas, she gets disappointed each time. She sure hoped that she'd be on the cover or perhaps inside the magazine. This time I promised her that on her birthday, she’d find a photo of herself in the April issue! Thanks a ton and kudos to your team. . . .
Hi Mother, Baby & Child Magazine, I want to thank you for being my friend through all the wonderful articles this past year. I have every single copy and it's like my daily dose if coffee every day. My children, both Nathan and Eden, have been featured in your lovely magazine, for which I thank you form the bottom of my heart. I also want to thank you for the fun events your team had organized. It was truly fascinating to be part of them. If I could make a suggestion, please have an event, which includes babies (and I mean infants) at a park or some indoor venue. They can come dressed up by parents. They are important part of our live and it will be great to have an event especially for them. Thank . . .
Dear Mother, Baby & Child Magazine, There are dozens of reasons why I love MB&C. I have been an avid reader and a contributor from the second month that MBC launched. I was introduced to it by a friend in Dubai, and since then there hasn’t been a single page in MB&C magazine that I didn’t go through. Being a mother of two, as well as a professional, I always look around for the best ideas to enjoy my motherhood and parenting while keeping pace with my career. I get each and every single fact regarding my kids, from potty training to ear piercing from MBC. That’s why I fell in love with the magazine and so I started following and regularly providing feedback to the Editor! An MBC fan, Maheen . . .
Dear Mother, Baby & Child Magazine, We are an expatriate family in Dubai, so Mother, Baby & Child magazine has been a great help to us-- from advices, what to expect (when you are a mother), what is new around town, events and how to handle family life. We really appreciate the topics, the love for us fans and the magazine itself (its colors and family based motif). We’ve gotten so many tips and advice from MB&C, and it has really helped us while we are away from our home country. MBC Magazine is almost our "extended family. Thank you and keep it up! Shiela Rizza and Baby Abdel Rahman MB&C Fan UAE
Hi MBC Team, I want to tell you that I’m so excited about your event on Eid, the Eid Extravaganza! I always enjoy your events, whether small or big, as does my 4-year-old daughter, Anisa. We both love your magazine and I get my friends hooked on to it as well! Keep doing a great job! Samantha Rodney MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MB&C, We are so excited about your Christmas Guide! This is my family is second Christmas here in Dubai and we’re excited to have a go-to guide that will help us with our shopping and outings! Being away from the family is always hard on holidays, but knowing that we’re in a city that will keep us and our kids busy during this time makes it a little easier. From my family to the MBC Family, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Love, Jackie Dominguez and Family MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MBC, I absolutely loved the Christmas Guide you had in the December issue! I can't wait to see what's in-store for the coming year. We (my children and I) are SO excited for all the events, bonuses, tickets, advice, tips and tricks and contests that are to come from MBC in 2013. Happy New Year to the MBC Team! Love, Hanan Sheikh MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MBC, You always keep us up-to-date with the hottest trends for both baby and mommy! I love flipping through the fashion sections. I always get ideas on how to dress myself up as well as my little one. You have some of the trendiest brands in the magazine! I just love it! I also really like how all of the articles are so informative and answer the questions mums have. This magazine is like my very own fairy godmother! Thank you for everything! Love, Carrie Phillip MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MBC, My family and I went to Oasis Centre last weekend not knowing that there was a Mother, Baby & Child Smothering Love event going on. This was (surprisingly so) the first time that we were exposed to Mother, Baby & Child Magazine and its events. We absolutely loved it, and my children (aged 1 and 3) were fascinated by all the activities that were going on! We can’t wait to experience the next event, and we will definitely be picking up the magazine on a regular basis! Thanks, Hoda and Family MB&C Fan UAE
Hi MBC Team, This month, I couldn't help but notice how much mums wanted their little ones to win one of the Facebook competitions, "Slick Kid". I just wanted to let everyone know that winning won't make your child any more special than he or she already is! As mums, we are really grateful to MBC that we can show off how cute our little ones are, but winning or losing a competitions does not a make a big difference! Just wanted to let all the mums out there know that all of their babies are special! Thanks, Anonymous MB&C Fan UAE
To MBC, Every month I get excited about receiving your magazine! I love flipping through the pages and finding out whose who in the world of mums, making the tasty dishes that are in the Kitchen Magic section and learning about all the different things that every mother should know! I’ve never come a magazine that is so comprehensive and complete. There isn’t a thing I would change about the magazine, its beautiful and perfect inside and out! Thanks, Kristie Mason MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MBC, Thank you for always keeping up with what mums want! Whether its fashion or advice, MB&C is definitely the place to find it all! It’s definitely an all in one source, and the best that I have come across so far in Dubai! Thank you for being available to all mums here in the UAE. Thanks, Aisha MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MB&C, Thank you for the helpful articles you provide, my wife really enjoys reading your magazine. I have noticed that almost all your articles are for the mom, do you ever write articles for dads? Thanks, Jimmy MB&C Fan UAE

It is something to look forward to, read, draw and learn from! It’s a good mix of fun and learning! It keeps both mums & kids happy! Thanks, Kavita Dearest MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MB&C, I look forward to reading all your articles every month, taking part in the activities provided for my child, and reading all about your beauty and fashion advice every month (not many magazines for moms or families actually have that!) Thank you for the special things for moms you provide, it’s really great to see that you understand that us moms are also stylish and glamorous! Keep up the good work! From, Hala MB&C Fan UAE
Dear MB&C Team, I would like to share my views on Mother, Baby & Child magazine. I think MB&C is a complete guide about parenthood that cares for every woman and child from toddler to pre- teens.

Dear MBC, Love your magazine! It has such wonderful articles and covers a wide variety of topics!!! Thanks for the inspiring stories of the Mumtrepreneurs & Charity's Angels. It’s got me thinking about how I can go about achieving my own little dream and giving back to society :-) My son also enjoys the fun activities in the "Mama & Me get Busy" section and we have a fun weekend planned with the recipes featured in this month’s Kitchen Magic! A little something for mom, a little something for baby, and a whole lot for the Family :-) Thanking you, Sheryl MB&C Fan UAE
Have picked up the December MBC issue for the first time and I’m just loving it. The recipes in the kitchen magic column are just so tempting and can’t wait till I try them over the weekend. It has wonderful articles and covers various topics, which truly inspire all mothers. The ì Mama & Me get busy section keeps both my little darling and me busy. Thanks to the MBC team for coming up with such an amazing magazine and wish you good luck in the future. Merlin de Abreu MB&C Fan UAE
MB&C is a favorite among mummies! As for this month’s romance theme: Yes its true, romance may disappear after marriage. Now, it happens in almost every relationship, but some things will make her feel special to build a love nest together, some little things go a long way for a romantic life again: put some music in life, make breakfast in bed, mail a greeting card, share fond memories. These things & much more can bring love back into our life. Meenaxi Rani Many MB&C Fan UAE
