As a first time mom, heading into postpartum was anxiety inducing. I had no idea what to expect, how much pain I’d be in after labor and the products I needed. Fast forward 4 weeks postpartum and I’m no longer in pain and ready to share my go-to products I used and loved. Scroll down to see my 17 postpartum essentials plus why I loved them:
Guys, these 9 items have been on heavy rotation since Poppy’s been born. I use pretty much all these items daily and swear by them! Most of them can be found on Amazon too because I am a huge Prime person and with a baby who has time to wait for shipping or go to the store? I’ve linked each item below and shared why I love them! Poppy Loves: 9 Must Have Newborn Essentials 1. Happiest Baby Snoo – I’m going to do a entire review on the Snoo so I’m going to keep why I love it short and sweet. It works. It’s pricey but it honestly works. Since purchasing the Snoo, Poppy sleeps like a little champ giving mama and dad a decent nights sleep! If you’re in the US you can rent the Snoo (lucky you!). Here in Canada you need to buy it, but it has a good re-sale value and may be worth the investment if you’re planning on having multiple kids. 2. Uppa Baby Vista V2 (in the colour Bryce) – The Vista has been my dream stroller for years. I love the sleep safe bassinet and that it can turn into a double stroller if I decide to have another kid. It’s a pricier stroller but well worth the investment in my opinion. Plus, its available in a bunch of colours! 3. Snuggle Me Organic Lounger – Tried, tested and approved by Poppy! The Snuggle Me Organic Lounger hugs your little babe…

As my due date swiftly approaches I’ve been checking off all my final to-do’s on my list. At the top of my list has always been safety and how I will keep baby girl safe as a newborn. I’m a first time mom, so when I think safety, one of the things I think about is her sleeping safely in her bassinet or crib during the night.
Honestly guys, we’ve been incredibly lucky to have our maternity photos taken by two very talented photographers. Today on the blog, I’m going to share one out of two of the maternity photoshoots we had the pleasure of doing. If you’re in the GTA and looking for beautiful shots be sure to check out Catherine for maternity, newborn, wedding and couple photography.

Sharing a huge haul of my favourite pieces (maternity & non maternity) that I’ve been wearing all Summer long!
I hear it all the time. Do I really need to buy maternity pieces when I’m pregnant? Honestly, no. You don’t. I for one, am a huge fan of maternity pieces for multiple reasons.
Finally, a bedroom refresh for the hubs and I! After spending the last few months working on baby girls nursery, my office and painting the house, it feels so nice to make our master bedroom a relaxing and inviting space. We knew we wanted to upgrade our room but we also had a budget in mind. So, we headed online to Ikea to spruce up our room on a budget!
