    Baby Elle’s First Halloween!

    Growing up, I always loved Halloween. It was easily one of my favourite holidays, but after middle school I lost interest in it. Even as a young adult I never partied or went to the bar or anything like that so I never had a reason to dress up. However, now that I’m a mother and it’s my baby girls FIRST Halloween, I couldn’t be more excited for it! I mentioned before that avocado is her favourite food, so when I saw an avocado costume on Carter’s website I could not resist buying it! My husband had already picked out a monkey costume for her because we call her our…

    My Experience Beginning Solids w/ Baby Elle + a Recipe

    My daughter has always eaten lots of breastmilk, right from birth in the hospital so I couldn’t wait for her to reach 6 months of age when I could start her on solids.

For her first breakfast I gave her pureed blueberries. She…

OK, so I did a fair amount of research before I purchased a baby carrier and I will say that there are many good quality carriers and they are all quite pricey, but honestly, you get what you pay for. I ended up settling on Ergobaby because they claim to be well constructed and durable. I chose the omni 360 model so that…

    My Epidural Experience

      Epidurals are one of those things that most moms are either completely for or else completely against. Many moms swear by them and say there’s no way they could ever give birth without one. Prior to giving birth to my daughter, I was pretty anti-epidural. Where we live, we have an incredible birthing centre with very private birth rooms that are extremely spacious. I fully intended to have an all natural childbirth and deliver my baby girl in the birthing centre. The birthing centre is run by midwives and there are no doctors or nurses on site, so you don’t have the option to receive drugs, including epidural, which…
