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!

I Said YES to Cord Blood and Tissue Banking

We opted to bank baby #2’s cord blood and cord tissue and to be honest, I really didn’t know much about the benefits of banking 5 years ago, which is why we hadn’t gone this route with Harper. However, this time around, Americord had recently launched here in Canada and I was given the opportunity to have a more thorough discussion with experts at Americord about the benefits. As a result, there was no doubt in my mind than to say YES to cord blood and tissue banking. Read on to learn more about why we made this choice.
