Baby Bottom Line

My name is Lisa, a GTA Mom... and the Mom behind The Baby Bottom Line. I love Mommy sites, product testing and dishing about them with other Moms! I am a mother to a preemie princess born in March 2009 and a Mama’s boy born in December 2012. I am the one person that if you don't want a truthful answer...don't ask me the question. Yes, I will tell look fat in that dress, no..those shoes don't go well with that belt...or don't bother buying that baby product because you'll never use it! Trust me, sometimes you just need a truthful answer, hear that someone else has gone through the same thing or just someone to talk and connect with for support. If that's what you're looking for, I'm here to dish about it!

Tantrums aren’t just for toddlers anymore

For the last month and a half, “M” has been in the worst mood in the morning and also right before bed. I wake her up for preschool and she runs and cries and tells me not to talk to her. You know, the “regular” stuff. I’ve found that it’s actually really taken a toll of me. I’m super tired before and after work, and dealing with her is actually really stressful. Sometimes I want to just sit there and cry along with her. It got...

Things I love in 400 words.

The sucking sound that newborns make while they sleep, the way they angrily grunt while nursing after you’ve waited too long to feed them, my warm snuggly babies. Buttered movie theatre popcorn with chocolate covered raisins mixed in, watching my kids sleep, waking up naturally, falling asleep again, a big fluffy duvet, getting into a freshly made bed with clean shaven legs, spending a weekend in my pajamas watching films, touching the pads...

Nurturing Touch For Your Active Toddler

I teach parents about infant massage as a way to connect and take an active role in the health and well being of their baby. I have realized that parents have a hard time applying the relaxing techniques of infant massage to their active toddler. Most parents are learning infant massage for their baby as early as five weeks old.These classes are designed to massage their baby on their back or tummy and the most movement would be rolling from...

Q & A: Should a two year old sleep with a pillow?

My son just turned 2 and started to climb out of his crib. I have the kind that converts to a toddler bed and figured that was my cue to convert it before he fell and was injured. Since it's the same bed, same bedding, he seems to have adjusted fine. What are your thoughts on pillows? My son is a tummy sleeper (I didn't let him when he was young, but now there's nothing I can do about it). Should I wait to introduce a pillow? I don't know if he...
