Step by Step
These boots, baby, were not meant for walking. It is a mild source of contention in baby world - to boot or not to boot your bébé? We think both!  Let us be clear, when indoors playing, one hundred percent keep baby’s feet free. Once autumn hits, the air is cooler and it is fair to expect rainy walks ahead or during summer park visits bring those booties or sandals for the win. Little booties or soft sandals keep those chubby toes toasty and dry.

Fairy Godsitter
In the cooler months, telling a new mom to go out for some time out sans-bébe´ is like asking her to perform another somersault without providing a comfort mat underneath. Now, for those of you who want to gift an extra special corporate baby gift basket we suggest the following: be the fairy babysitter. Make your basket themed -  choose one of our high-end options with sleeper set and a luxurious plush blanket - and here’s the clincher - include a card with a paid for session with your own babysitter.

Merry Everything and a Happy Always!
The food, the cards, the calls, the logistics of family gatherings...and the week leading up to the holidays can feel like a whole lot of jing-a-ling-a-linging in your brain. Doubly so with a new baby in the picture. Before the holiday recovery spa session is booked, make your life a little less hectic. Give yourself the gift of time and shop online.

Taking Flight, Helicopter Grand-Parenting
Helicopter grand-parenting, it’s a real thing.  I’ve caught myself doing it: hovering, suggesting, well, let's be, honest-nagging. It comes, obviously from a place of love and concern but it also comes from habit.  As parents we spend a lifetime worrying for the well being of our children. It does not stop even when they have their own children.  A grandparent’s role is two-fold and calls on us to gather our knowledge, whilst setting boundaries for ourselves.

C’est l’fonne - Summer in Montreal

My daughters laughter carrying over from seats 7A and 7B was the perfect beginning to our three day Montreal gateway. Seeing them spend quality time warmed my heart, especially given their busy lives adulting as parents and career gals.  The smile on this mama’s face started on that take-off flight and didn’t let-up until the return landing. This was bound to be one epic ‘business’ trip.

Summer Solstice and your Baby

Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year - arrived June 21 and marked the true beginning of summer and a farewell to spring. It also has some new moms concerned about changing sleep patterns and sun exposure but as The Beatles famously sang: 
“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it’s alright, little darling...”.

Daddy and baby on Father's Day

This Father’s Day we toast all the dads out there - the new ones for all the growing that awaits them alongside their babies, and the established dads for all the giving, teaching, protecting and sustained love they provide.  We are so used to speaking openly about the challenges and triumphs of motherhood and so rarely speak of the same from the perspective of fatherhood. 

This weekend we hope the conversation widens and relaxes to embrace all the amazing wins of parenting. Here’s to you dads and to your unique, enduring presence in all our lives.
