Maggie’s Picks: Sort, Stack and Nest Toys

Around 12 months of age, Maggie became obsessed with her sort and stack toys! She would play with them for long periods of time and was very determined at being “successful” at them. So I thought I’d share some of her favourite ones for those with babes around the one year mark – keep in…

Our Favourite Disposable Diapers: From Newborn to Now

I have been meaning to write this post for awhile, because I know people are always asking for diaper recommendations, especially new parents.

Back to Work and Pumping: How to Prepare and What to Get

I felt very torn about returning to work because of breastfeeding, as I had been basically exclusively breastfeeding (I say basically because M did have formula within the first few days of life due to weight loss and my milk not coming in until day 5) up to 10.5 months when I was scheduled to…

Maggie’s Christmas and Birthday Haul

I’ve had a few people ask what gifts Maggie got over the holidays and her birthday and what she has really enjoyed so far, so I thought I would share! I also don’t strictly buy “neutral” toys for her (I talked about this on stories recently) – some stuff I get is neutral coloured, but…

What I Loved About Midwifery Care

My obstetrical care during pregnancy was provided by a team of midwives. I loved it – my experience was, from start to finish, nothing short of amazing. My birth didn’t go as I imagined but my care team (and my husband, of course) made it an excellent experience anyways. Now, before I get into why…

Things To Do With Your Littles in Ontario This Fall (In the Middle of a Pandemic)

It’s hard being a mama on maternity leave sometimes – you keep having to rack your brain for things to do everyday. Not even so much for baby (depending on their age), but sometimes for your own sanity! I like some full days at home a week (we still get out for walks around the…
