• Easing the Transition with Tommee Tippee Pump and Go System

    Our nearly one year old has done a lot of growing up over the past few months! She now eats three meals a day plus snacks! However, we aren’t ready to say goodbye to the goodness of breastmilk! Breastmilk is awesome because it’s packed full of nutrients and antibodies that help keep our little one healthy. It lowers her risk of getting asthma and allergies, and nursing babies tend to have less ear infections and cases of diarrhea. If my body is still making milk and my baby wants it, why would I stop giving it to her? That being said, this Mama needs a break! Now that she’s willing…

  • I Think I Have Birth Trauma

    It’s never easy bringing a baby into the world. There’s fear of the unknown, pain in the contractions, and possibly scars from surgery. Healing takes time, but we eventually begin to forget how uncomfortable those few hours were; that is, unless things didn’t go as we planned… I think I may have birth trauma. My first birth was long and hard. It lasted close to 42 hours, my epidural didn’t work, and I remember feeling barely conscience. But I came out of it okay, healed well, and quickly forgot what contractions truly felt like. My second was a dream delivery. I had to be induced due to a complication, but…

The only thing worse than having to smell it while you are changing baby, is having to deal with the stench until garbage day comes around. I am not cool with a smelly bathroom or nursery! But there is a solution and it’s all thanks to Playtex and their genius Diaper Genie system! The Playtex Diaper Genie Elite is basically a storage bin for those dirty diapers. Once you’ve balled up that dirty diaper, you simply press the foot pedal, drop the diaper inside and then step off the pedal to close it.…

  • Man! I Feel Like a Woman – Forever Yours Lingerie

    There are a few things I hate going shopping for; jeans, bathing suits and bras! Problem is, these things are kind of necessary in life. Especially the latter… I’m a curvy girl, and I’ve always struggled finding a great fit when it comes to bras. I’m also big on comfort. In my past experiences, comfort has equaled ugly. Must a Mom of three resign herself to a plain jane beige bra for those many years of carting around babies on their hips? Forever Yours Lingerie located in downtown Langley, British Columbia says no way! They specialize in making a woman feel like a woman again, so throw those ratty undergarments out the window ladies! Forever Yours…

  • 5 Funny Signs You’re a Breastfeeding Mom

    As wonderful as being a breastfeeding Mom is, it’s not all bonding and baby smiles. Some days I find it really hard to have a child attached to me 24/7! In an effort to deflect my frustrations, I bring you humor. If you’re a breastfeeding Mom too, perhaps you can relate? Here are 5 signs you’re a breastfeeding Mom. You change your clothes multiple times a day. Oh no, not because of baby puke (though that’s a factor too.) No, you’re changing multiple times a day because your body can’t seem to figure out whether it’s hot or cold. Over the course of approximately 8 hours, you’ll go from a heavy sweater, to…
