Mrs Content – Toronto Yoga Mamas

I stumbled upon Toronto Yoga Mamas when I was searching for a Doula a few months ago. We interviewed a handful from different agencies and I ended up connecting with Thea who also happens to teach pre-natal yoga at Toronto … Continue reading

Baby Content – The Beginnings of a Nursery

Two major additions to the nursery this weekend!

My dad somehow scored a really great rocking chair from a friend – for free! I had no idea what it looked like and saw it for the first time at Easter (where it was waiting for us at my parents’ place for us to take it home). I’m so thrilled with it, I’m putting it in the nursery and we’re putting the one Mr Content ordered for me in the family room. I tossed an ikea pillow onto it for comfort and have tucked it into the corner of the nursery by the window.

And here’s the big one – THE CRIB IS UP!!! I can hardly believe it. It still isn’t sinking in that there’s a wee one joining us in less than three months but it’s really happening! We’re thrilled with the crib, and it was relatively easy to put together (thank goodness!). It has three different heights for the mattress, converts to a toddler bed and eventually to a regular bed – the front and back turn into a head board and base board. This was a gift from my mother-in-law (Thank you Alice!) and we know it will be much loved for many years to come. No bedding yet, I’ve put it on the registry  so I will post further updates as it all comes together. Also I’m still playing with the layout of the furniture in the room, and am holding off on hanging anything on the walls until the furniture is figured out. Stay tuned for the evolution.

Baby Content – The Dangers of Bumper Pads

As gorgeous as they are, are you aware of the potential dangers of bumper pads? They are used purely for aesthetic reasons and the Government of Canada warns strongly against their use citing that they could be a contributing factor in SIDS.

The official Health Canada statement is available here, note that it’s dated 2005 – so why aren’t more new moms & moms-to-be in the know? And why are they still available for purchase in Canada?

What are your thoughts? Did you use bumper pads?

A Well Dressed Boy

We have opted to not find out if we’re having a boy or a girl, we think it will just add to the magic of his or her birth day. So until then I like to play pretend dress up for both sexes. Those who know me, know my love for both denim and camo. So imagine the crush when I walked into Zara kids section today.

Also my husband has a lot of love for Spiderman (no joke he’s got the series of Spiderman movie posters plaqued and hanging in his office, he’s a lawyer.) Anyways so if we’re blessed with a little boy you can bet your bottom dollar his daddy is going to buy him these swim trucks. Also from Zara.
