With mat leave coming to an end, I can feel my anxiety creeping up on me. I don’t know if I am ready to go back… or if I even want to go back! I really wanted to share with all the new parents out there what I went through my first week back to work.
Looking back on the past seven months, I’ve had to face some truths about myself. In more ways than one I am extremely blessed. Lucky. Fortunate. The human body is such a miracle and the changes that a woman’s body instinctively makes to support new life is nothing short of incredible. So I confess. I […]
For me, the journey to motherhood has been exciting, rewarding, stressful, fun, and downright hard work. My whole life seems to centre around this tiny person that captures my every thought and my entire heart. It’s hard to describe what pregnancy feels like for a first-time-mom. And if you’re anything like me you obsessively track […]
After a much needed move clear across the country, just over a year of settling into our new Albertan lifestyle, and finally finding a design related job that I could see myself advancing in, life took a sudden and sharp, hard left.
SURPRISE!!! YOUR PREGNANT!!!
When I had my first, Ms. Aly, I wanted to buy every gadget and gizmo there was available. Unfortunately I wasn’t financially able to give into my wants so we got by with the minimum and I mean bare minimum! Baby number two was a bit more fortunate and I was gifted some baby tech […]
Recently I took my first plane ride to Toronto, and I did it with a baby in tow! Travelling with Mr. Grey at this particular time was a bit frustrating… I wasn’t planning on taking his entire nursery with us on the plane…
At 33 years old, it often comes as a shock to people when I tell them I’ve never been on a plane before. The woman sitting next to me didn’t seem too amused that she had to sit next to someone with a baby and this time Mr. Grey was awake and alert, screeching… just for fun! There was nothing I could do!
Is your little one fighting daytime sleep? Mine did for sure! He would only take naps if he was bounced, while being held in the football hold, and I or my hubby was walking…and walking… and walking! That’s a lot of hoops to jump through for a nap.
What I’m about to share with you saved me from giving up on breastfeeding. If you are struggling with getting your baby to latch on this could be just about the only latch advice you will need. Here goes!
Mr. Grey turning 4 months couldn’t come fast enough. He had a bed time routine that was working well for us but I was soooo excited when he finally reached 4 months old, sleep training age!!! *If your little one isn’t quite at that age yet but you want to get a head start on sleep […]
The best way to start sleep training your little one is to first understand how much sleep they actually need and then create a routine.
Circumcision… A touchy subject, I know, and what does that have to do with breastfeeding?? Well, I’m getting there!!
