When you have a child, everything changes. Your priorities shift, sleep is a luxury, and your new favourite accessory is not a sparkly clutch but a military-grade diaper bag. This 24/7 job won't contribute to your RRSP or come with an expense account, but it does pay out in toothless grins, hilarious developmental milestones, and more love than you ever thought you could possibly...
11 Tips to Help You Get Pregnant Faster
Trying to conceive (or "TTC" as parents-to-be call it) is not just a matter of making love every other day and happily finding a plus sign on the pee stick at the end of the month. According to one study
, about 20% of moms-in-waiting are still unsuccessful after six months of trying. Speaking from personal experience
, this can be very demoralizing.
So what can you do to increase your chances of...

Starting a family can be a nerve-wracking experience. Are you ever truly ready
for this huge step? As teens and young adults, we spend much of our time trying to avoid pregnancy

How to Lose Belly Fat After Having a Baby
Before we get into the details of these super helpful tips prepared by my Personal Trainer, Steph Sibbio
(pictured above with my baby girl) let me get one thing out of the way first: wanting to firm up your belly after a baby is not a reflection of how you feel about becoming a mother or about your children.

Pregnancy Brain Strikes Again
Pregnancy makes me feel just about as dumb as this photo.
I experienced a healthy dose of stupid
when pregnant with baby #1, including wearing my underwear backward and forgetting how to spell. Yet somehow, it's been a shock to me that Pregnancy Brain is back for baby #2. Like it's something you should become immune to after you've had it once.
While my academic spelling and...

How To Get Out of Diaper Duty: A Confessional
No baby knows how to fill a diaper quite like my son. It's epic, really. Even as a newborn when we heard the grunts, saw the redness in his face and the concentration in his stare, we knew it was time to brace for the worst.
But ladies, get ready to thank me because I have figured out how to get my husband to change almost every evening and weekend diaper our son has had for...
How to Travel to NYC With an Infant
The short answer is you might want to reconsider that. I just returned from four days in New York City with my husband and baby and was quite disappointed to discover how hard it is to get around with a babe in tow. Sure, it's a big bustling city and space is always an issue but it went beyond that. From small inconveniences like waiting on the side of the sidewalk until there was...
7 Things No One Tells You About Becoming a Mom
Before my baby boy was born I got a lot of advice. I still continue to receive a lot of (unsolicited) advice. But no one told me the following super important details I am about to share with you. You're Welcome
, in advance.
1. Don't buy a nursing bra with underwire.
Unless you like blocked milk ducts.
The busty woman at the bra store turned me away from a really...
