New Mom...Again

Two weeks ago, we welcomed another beautiful baby to our family. It goes without saying the last 14 days have been a bit of a blur. Between the c-section recovery, unexpected UTI, visitors, adjusting from a family of 3 to 4, we also have to remind ourselves what it's like to be "new" parents again: the middle of the night feedings, breast feeding, swaddling, baby diapers, baby poop, and so on.

Of course, this time around, we're all a bit more calm and collected -- we know what to expect, how to soothe baby, how to sleep on a dime -- but still, there is a bit of a learning curve. It's amazing how quickly you forget techniques and tricks, and even more remarkable how quickly it all comes back!

The baby industry is outstanding; even within the 2 years since we had Isabelle, there's tons of new "stuff" on the market: new bottles, nursing tanks, swaddles -- all to make our lives easier. What else is new? Well if you're in Toronto, there's a brand new Baby Show coming to town for the first time.

The Baby Show runs all weekend -- September 27 & 28 -- at the Direct Energy Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online here or at the door. 

Highlights of the show include: 
  • Massage Area for moms courtesy of Spa My Blend by Clarins at The Ritz Carlton, Toronto
  • Well.ca Green Zone
  • Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stage

Plus, tons of great entertainment for the entire family, including speakers, bouncy castle, and my DD's favourite -- Daniel Tiger and Patty from CBC Kids!

Did I mention the shopping!? I'm personally hitting up the show to check out the double strollers! You can catch some great deals at the show, which is what I'm hoping for :)

For more information on The Baby Show, visit their website. Hope to see you there!
