  • Momzelle Breastfeeding Wear Photo Shoot

    Breastfeeding in the Park This week I got to participate in another photo shoot for Momzelle.  The first photo shoot was fun, but this time we took it outside (and I now have a baby to nurse!). We had two beautiful moms help us out, Mélanie and Geneviève.  It was a really fun afternoon.  Luckily for us, the real models were quite agreeable and hungry at the right time:) Here I am, sporting the striped v-neck ruched tank top. This next photo might not make the website ;)  My sweet daughter is telling us how she really feels about those who think we should cover up!  No, no she isn't using the right finger...  We will be posting banners with our new...

  • Happy Father's Day!

    "Any fool can be a Father, but it takes a real man to be a Daddy!!" ~ Philip Whitmore Sr It has been a wonderful four months watching my husband in his new role as a father.  He has truly impressed me, even though I had a sneaking suspicion when I married him that he would be pretty great at it! For me, bonding with my daughter was instantaneous, facilitated by our breastfeeding relationship.  My husband has made every effort and opportunity to bond with her too.  Of all the things he does with her, my absolute favourite is: Babywearing!  I love that my husband wears our daughter every chance he gets.  What is your favourite (and perhaps unexpected) thing your...
  • Breastfeeding at a Wedding

    Babies and weddings, not exactly a popular combination! I would say it fits somewhere between walking onto an airplane with a baby and asking for a high chair at a steakhouse. Last month we attended a wedding with our three month old daughter.  I will admit to all kinds of anxiety as we walked into the chapel.  Now our kid is awesome, very calm and totally adorable of course, but I was sure she would make a scene just as the lovely couple professed their love for one another!  So we sat near the back and planned our escape.  It turns out I didn't need to worry.  She made one little squeak and I nursed her quietly and discreetly in my momzelle dress...
  • The Breastfeeding Tourist

  • The Best Gifts for New Moms this Mother's Day

    My first child will be twelve weeks old on Mother's Day, this Sunday.  I'm finally on the receiving end of this holiday!!  Of course, I now firmly believe everyday should be mother's day and that this "hallmark" holiday is a truly great reminder to reach out to our mothers and let them know how much we appreciate all they do! I have come up with a list of things that I would certainly appreciate this Sunday. My daughter is too young, so this list is really for my husband:) The Best Gifts for New Mom's this Mother's Day: 1)  Housekeeping!  I would just love to get a gift certificate to a cleaning service.  It would be such a luxury to get rid of...
  • Breastfeeding Book Review: This Milk Tastes Good

    I am a new mother.  My daughter is eleven weeks old and already loves reading.  Well, since last Tuesday  she is happiest (when not on the boob) sitting on our laps facing out, so we have been reading her stories! I was recently sent a book to review.  This Milk Tastes Good! by Chenniah Patrick is a breastfeeding nursery rhyme.  It is a simple and sweet poem written from the child's perspective.  With lines like "it sometimes tastes like oatmeal and honey, but I just think that it all tastes yummy", the rhyme is a cute play on the theory that breast milk changes slightly in flavour based on what mom eats. My favourite part of this book is the illustrations.  As you...

  • My Breastfeeding Journey: Out and About

    I had told myself all through my pregnancy that I would not be confined to the house once my little one arrived.  Don't get me wrong, I also told myself to take it super easy and slow, recover, get to know my baby and give myself nothing to do other than fulfill my daughter's needs!  I just knew that soon enough I would be antsy to get out of the house. Of course, that means I would have to breastfeed in public!  After my daughter and I got comfortable breastfeeding, I jumped right in.  I'll admit that I was intimidated at first, especially when there seem to be new stories everyday of mothers being harassed and humiliated for such a nurturing and natural act.  I...
  • My Breastfeeding Journey: Getting comfortable

    My first child will be four weeks old this week.  It sure is going fast (except the nights, funny how that works).  We have conquered the cracked nipples and improper latch, my next challenge was getting comfortable. Finding a comfortable position didn't take me too long.  I have set myself up, almost permanently, on the couch.  I have three pillows propped on one end of the couch, which gives me a nice recline and lets me put my feet up.  Adele and I are tummy to tummy so my arms and back don't get sore.  Of course, this position doesn't allow for a lot of function.  I have to make sure I grab my big glass of water, snacks, phone, remote control and current...
