Mom to Mom Chat

arenting these days is so much about upping each other in being what you think is THE perfect Mother. You spend so many hours stressing about what your child is putting in their body, putting on their body, watching too much of, watching to little of. It is stressful AF and to be honest, useless. Your child isn’t going to think back about their childhood and be like, oh thank goodness my mom limited my screen time and only fed me organic, forcing me to eat only raw vegetable because that’s what ‘studies show’ is best.

Purple Mattress: Tips to Transition Your Little One

Since we have little one young number 2 on the way we have decided to transition our son to a twin sized mattress in the next couple of months and I hope to be successful with it. I’ve done some pretty extensive research on transitioning because I want it to goes as smoothly as it can, or as smoothly as my son will let us! We decided to keep it very minimal at the beginning of the transition.

JUSU Body - Baby Collection

JUSU is a local company that I have fallen in love with over & over again for the last couple of years. They have expanded into much more than just a juice bar. When I decided to research more into JUSU and why it started it really hit me hard in the chest. Learning that the CEO, Bruce Mullen’s wife passed away from Breast Cancer and knowing Bruce was looking for ways to reverse his wife’s fatal illness. Jusu was created in honour of Charlene, his wife. JUSU's focus on striving for a zero-impact lifestyle continued with the realization that the cold-pressed organic juices was a nutrient gold mine. JUSU Body started in 2016, with pure, organic juice pulp-infused and plant-based skincare products to protect your body and the environment.  I purchased a couple of their items when it launched and ended up buying my husband the shaving cream along with their ginger soap bar.

Increasing your milk supply!

I don’t think there’s a breastfeeding momma out there who doesn’t worry about her supply.  I was obsessive about my supply when Lucas was first born.  I had heard so many stories of moms who’s supply had suddenly dropped and could no longer feed their babies.  When I would see a dip in what I was producing, I’d use these strategies to increase my milk supply. When I was taking care of myself and following these tips, I’d typically pump between 9-10 ounces from each side! If you’re working hard to keep your milk flowing (or just doing some research ahead of time), try these totally doable ways to pump up production

What's In My Diaper Bag 2.0

I previously made a What's In My Diaper Bag last year before my son arrived. What I thought would be in my diaper bag! you can check that out here. Looking back, I actually don't hold all of those items in that bag! So, I have decided to make a new 2.0 version of the real deal of what goes on inside my diaper bag. I decided to make the switch from a backpack to a shoulder bag/purse looking diaper bag.

5 remedies to help YOU sleep

When my son was a few months old, and I was deep in the midst of sleep-deprivation & “mommy fog”. Lucas was still sleeping a lot better than most newborns. I would only have to get up once, but most of the time twice or three times for 3 months. That being said, I don’t do well on broken sleep & I cried. A lot. Lucas was a good sleeper relativity early. We think it’s because of his weight! He’s always been in the 97th percentile. When he finally did start sleeping well, I discovered something — he could sleep through the night, but I couldn’t! Suddenly, was the one waking up multiple times each night, unable to fall back asleep, while my son slept peacefully in his crib. I would constantly check the video monitor each time I woke up.

New Mom: The Expectations

Before having children I feel like we all have had expectations of maternity leave/ postpartum time off.

I try myself) ♥️ Until reality hits you in the teeth!
