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!

It’s official: A big bed for a big girl!

For months I’ve been trying to talk “M” into moving into a big girl bed. She’ll be 3 in a few month so it’s about that time! She never climbed out of it so we weren’t forced to switch her over prematurely. Any time I brought up the subject with her she either changed it or said she didn’t want to leave her crib. Even after explaining that it was just going to be a shorter front to her crib she wanted nothing to do with it. Well...

Broken Record

Emma has been jibber-jabbing something all afternoon. It was the same thing over and over. "Cest Belle, my Belle, oui, I love Juice. Something, something, something." She is singing it. It's cute but it is getting a bit annoying... I just about said, "You sound like a broken record." Until I realized that she wouldn't have the faintest idea what that meant. Then I thought, "…like a scratched CD", but quickly nixed that for being...

The V Word – I’m Pro Choice

Recently I was engaged in a conversation on twitter about birth control. It seems that I may be the minority here in thinking that it’s completely my husband’s choice to do this. The words “it’s his turn” were thrown around and I get that. I get it, but I don’t agree with it. I don’t view our reproduction as turn taking. I’ve had two children vaginally and I don’t hold it over my husband’s head as “look at what I did for...

Managing Gestational Diabetes

Pregnant women who have never had diabetes but develop high blood sugar (glucose) levels during pregnancy are said to have gestational diabetes (GDM). According to the American Diabetes Association, it is estimated that GDM affects 18% of pregnancies. GDM starts when your body is unable to make and use all of the insulin it needs for pregnancy. Without enough insulin, glucose can’t leave the blood and be used for energy and builds up in the...

A Smart Auto-Motive

I attended the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit recently, and was pretty impressed with the range of eco-friendly cars that were being unveiled – from the tiny “smart” cars to the hybrids, the electric, and everything in between.  It is of course imperative that we do all we can to protect our environment, and all of the car companies seem to get this, and are investing dollars and research in improving the way they...
