Living My Best (and Healthiest Mat-Leave) Life Ever!

I was motivated by a mommy friend, Ronit from @leagueofmoms, to write this post after she spoke at the MOMSTO Wine Festival last month. And since I’ve been on maternity leave now for seven months it feels like the right time to share my story and how I’ve been living my best and healthiest mat-leave life too. Plus, as cliché as it sounds, time if flying by all too fast! I’ve tried my hardest to make the most of each day, but #MomLife often gets the best of me.

Exercise Your Baby’s Brain Muscles!

When I had my second baby, this passion to bond through music continued. This time I was introduced to an amazing new musical app called Smart Start.

Sweat. Nurse. Repeat.

I’m slowly getting back to more regular activity since having my second baby and I have to admit, finding workout clothing for the nursing mother was not an easy task. As you might already know, it takes major skills to try and breastfeed in a regular sports bra after a Mommy & Baby fitness class. I was not up for that challenge. But I think the universe must’ve been listening because that’s when I was introduced to @Cadenshae. It’s the first active wear line made specifically for moms (by a mom) that’s not only functional, but fashionable too. I’ve shared the full low-down on the blog! If you’re a nursing active mama, you HAVE to check out this line. I’m officially obsessed!

But this time around, Harper and I set aside the running shoes and trainers and we’re focusing on rain boots instead!
