How much solid food should my baby eat?

Your Baby Should Be Eating as Much Solid Baby Food as Your Baby Will Eat. You're wondering about the above statement aren't you? Ask the vast majority of pediatricians and they will all say, "Feed your baby as much as your baby will eat". One of the caveats when feeding your baby solid foods is that that you ensure that your baby is still receiving proper amounts of breast milk and/or formula. Solid foods in the early stage are meant for...

What the Classes and Cows don’t tell you about Breastfeeding

As my husband and I prepare for baby number two, we are once again faced with the decision of whether to breastfeed or formula feed. While weighing the pros and cons of both and ultimately deciding “Breast is Best,” I find myself reflecting on my nursing experience with baby number one. I’m not going to sugar coat it...my first experience sucked! Before my daughter was born, I made the decision that I was going to breastfeed. Since the...

Recovering after Birth

The human body has the ability to heal itself. In today’s society, we tend to work against the natural healing of our bodies. Poor posture, sedentary lifestyles, overuse of medications and returning to activity before our bodies are ready can inhibit natural healing. The strain of a growing belly and relaxed ligaments and joints are all needed to prepare for birth but can lead to injury in the postnatal stage. Good care must be taken for...

Thinking of travelling with baby? Start Early!

My son went on his first trip with us when he was 10.5 weeks old. However, when my daughter was that age, leaving the house was a big deal for me, and getting on a plane was definitely unthinkable! When baby is tiny, they are immobile, on a liquid diet only, not yet on a schedule or in a routine from which deviating could cause meltdowns, and relatively easy to distract – the perfect travel companion! Exclusive breastfeeding is by far the...

Preparing for the cost of post-secondary education

As parents we often think of our children’s major milestones–first word, first step, and the list goes on… One thing that parents sometimes fail to think about and plan for is the first day of university or college. With tuition fees rising each year, it’s better to start planning sooner rather than later. According to Statistics Canada, children born today will be looking at post-secondary costs in excess of $139,000.* As...

Chivalry is dead

Chivalry has to be dead as we are losing our compassion for others that need a seat on the TTC! Okay...so picture this:  I got caught in a huge rain storm on my way to Women’s College Hospital for work so I was soaked from head to toe, literally. Now, I know that the morning trains are packed with people that have not had a good night sleep or are in the midst of a sleep on their way to work...but seriously people...what’s the matter...

Your Baby’s Growth

Most babies have similar growth rates. Their physical development is noted by the paediatrician with a growth chart. This growth chart is a reference point that allows you to check how your baby is growing compared to other children of the same age and gender. However, you must remember that your child has his own growth rate. Don’t panic if your child has a low weight at birth or if he’s born prematurely and has a slower growth rate...

Every Mother Counts

Recently I started to follow Christy Turlington Burns on twitter.  She was and always has been one of my favorite models.  I always found something about her very appealing.  It doesn't hurt that she is married to the cutie pie Edward Burns.  She is one of the best people to work with in the business and is someone I would love to share a cup of coffee with.  She holds my utmost respect for her work as an activist and humanitarian.  Her...
