Mamas For Mamas - Partnership with Bonjour Baby Baskets

Every year we pick a charity to support, where we feel that our donation can make an impact.  This year we are thrilled to support Mamas For Mamas — a national charitable organization that supports mothers in crisis.

A happy mama makes a happy baby. Parenting certainly has its struggles but when basic needs can not be met, those struggles are tenfold. An organization like this is needed everywhere to help young families in need find surer footing into a safer, happier, future. We support their mission and work wholeheartedly, and are glad to have Bonjour Baby Baskets' mamas join their wider family of mamas on a mission.

Just me and my baby - First time going out without the baby

Just me and my baby out on a Saturday night...without the baby...yikes, right? Going out for the first time post baby, just the two of you, can be a tad overwhelming. On the one hand—woohoo you get to step out on the town in a burp-up-free top, a.k.a. ‘the dressed-up new-mom look’.   On the other hand—will the baby be OK without you? Or more correctly, will you be OK without the baby? 


 

Getting to Know You (us)
We’ve collected the most common questions we’ve received from our company history to style preferences so you can get to know us a little better. 
Twenty-something years ago I made the best decision of my life by moving to Canada. It wasn't easy. I was alone with 3 young kids but we managed with positive thoughts and lots of love.  I consider myself fortunate to live in this country, especially Toronto, where opportunities abound and people from many parts of the world call themselves neighbours. I am thankful to live in a place where my kids grew surrounded by tolerance and acceptance.

Reflections on Motherhood from a Grandmother
Now that I am a grandmother -twice over- I relate to motherhood differently. When your baby is born you think: I will never love another creature so intensely.  If you are blessed with more children, you learn that the heart grows and expands for there is always room for more love. Then your children give you grandchildren and your heart stretches even more, and never in your wildest dreams did you imagine how much love, in all its iterations, was possible.


Baby (and mommy) First Holiday Parties, the Do's and Don'ts

 Ah, the holidays. The glitz, the glamour, the parties, the stress… and the baby!

Pre-baby: elegant outfits, your honey by your side, colleagues, drinks, food, merriment, and finally some much needed R&R. 

Post-baby: hormones, milk, fatigue like you’ve never known, and really, should you bother going to the Chrismukkah work bash? At Bonjour Baby Baskets we answer with a resounding YES!

The Joys of Breastfeeding

The NUMBER ONE question I get asked as a Lactation Consultant?  Breastfeeding is not always easy.  Even as a Lactation Consultant with years of experience I required prescription nipple ointment for my sore nipples, experienced too many blocked ducts to count, endured five cases of mastitis and certainly questioned my...

Top 10 Baby Gifts

When thinking about the best baby gifts a new parent could receive I think about what I would have liked to receive when I had my first baby. The options were not as plentiful back then, the sources of information were limited and the decisions were much simpler. In today’s...
