Designer Feature: Laranjinha from Portugal with Love
Laranjinha is known for their traditional design and overall elegance with a rotation of pastels for subtle seasonal changes. This spring - in a sidestep - the designers incorporated Liberty of London’s riotous bursts of flower printed cotton. But of course, in keeping with their classic aesthetic the flower power prints are used for details such as a shoulder frill here, a little side tie there.

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.

New Mom, New Year
With a bundle in the basket no one is expecting new parents to make new year’s resolutions. We thought, in these happy but confusing first months, we’d offer three reminders (not resolutions) to keep you doing YOU in 2019!

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.


The Heir and The Loom

Autumn has us feeling sentimental and thinking of old memories and new ones to be forged. What makes for a unique heirloom, a piece to be treasured? 

Long before I started Bonjour Baby Baskets I fell in love with quality fabrics and unique design. The heirlooms that ‘brought me joy’ were much-loved tactile objects that reminded me of my children’s first days.

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...
