After the recent heat wave here in Calgary, it’s fair to say summer is in full swing. One of the ways we like to keep cool is to fill up the kiddie pool and turn on the sprinkler in the backyard. This is pretty well a daily occurrence for us all summer long, so Petit Prince needs some sun safe attire to keep him protected from all those UV rays. This is where Bummis Splash line comes in! Bummis Splash line includes reusable swim diapers, UV Tees and Tankinis, and hats. Aside from being super functional, the Splash line is filled with stylish prints so your little one can rock their summer look from head to toe! Read More

Do you find yourself spending a whole lot of time outdoors in the summer? My family spends loads of time outdoors throughout the summer. That means I need to stock up on two things: sun lotion and bug spray. I don’t know about you, but the mosquitoes love me. They always have. If there’s a mosquito anywhere nearby, it will hone in on me, bite me (even through clothing), and then tell all of its friends where to find me. Unfortunately, The Heir has inherited this trait from me, and has often found himself the victim of what can only be described as a mosquito attack. I’ll be honest, I don’t love traditional insect repellant. I dislike the smell, and really dislike the ingredients. I don’t want to use it, but I haven’t found an effective alternative until now. One of my favourite Canadian brands is Les Produits de MaYa. Their liniment is a product I use every single day, their whipped CoKa body lotion is so hydrating, and their outdoor protective cream is perfect for Petit Prince’s sensitive skin. Now they’ve created a natural and effective insect repellant called In The Woods. Read More

Have you struggled to find an overnight cloth diaper solution that works for you super soaker? I happen to hang out in a lot of cloth diaper groups on Facebook, and not a day goes by where someone isn’t asking for suggestions for an overnight cloth diaper that is absorbent enough for the heaviest of wetters. This seems to be one of the most challenging aspects of cloth diapering. Families want to cloth diaper full time, but feel like they simply can’t find a cloth diaper that’s absorbent enough for their little one. This is where the work at home mom (WAHM) behind Just For You Baby Designs comes in. You see, Jocelyn is something of a cloth diaper master. Her pocket diaper is divine, her AIO is quite literally my favourite AIO at the moment, and now her Hybrid Nightly Essential fitted diaper has proven to be more than just the super soaker absorber to end all super soaker overnight leaks. Not only is the Just 4 You Baby Designs Hybrid Nightly Essential beyond incredibly absorbent, but it’s absolutely beautiful. I’ve had a diaper crush on this diaper style in this particular print since I first saw it at the Great Cloth Diaper Change in Calgary in 2016. Let me tell you that this overnight hybrid fitted did not disappoint! Read More

I received this item and compensation in order to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.
I never realized before becoming a parent just how important a bib was going to be in my daily life with kids. At first, I bought bibs because they were cute and totally finished an outfit. I quickly realized that bibs were an absolute must have item that needed to perform the function of keeping my little one’s shirt clean and dry, and it needed to perform that function very well. Now you might be thinking there’s not much to a bib and that all bibs are pretty much the same. I’m here to tell you that this simply is not the case! Not all bibs are created equal, and the Rico Double-Sided Terry Cloth Bib from Baby Travel Inc. is in a league of its own. This bib is changing my opinion of what a bib should and could be! I’m finding myself ditching the full sleeve PUL/waterproof bib and opting for this Rico terry cloth bib for Petit Prince more and more. Here’s what you need to know. Read More

I received compensation in the form of a MommyCon Vancouver media pass for my role on the MommyCon Vancouver Blogger Collective.
MommyCon Vancouver is just a mere 28 sleeps away! Twenty eight sleeps you guys! I know I can hardly wait for MommyCon’s Canadian debut and I’m beyond excited that it’s happening in my very own hometown. Hello Vancouver! I know MommyCon Vancouver is going to be a blast and I’ve been carefully planning out the sessions I absolutely must attend. Have you checked out the schedule of events yet? It looks AMAZING! I think I’m most looking forward to Kim Rosas’ session on menstrual cups in the Vagina Village, but I’m also super keen on AppleCheeks’ founders Amy Appleton & Ilana Grostern’s session on redefining motherhood.
