SLEEP TRAINING, BREASTFEEDING, AND MINDING YOUR OWN DAMN BUSINESS

A new, comprehensive, scientific study has just been released that proves that persons who sleep train their children and those who co-sleep with their children can both be equally good/loving/capable parents. In a shocking discovery, information has surfaced proving that every person has a unique set of circumstances that determine, on an individual basis, what…

DECODING MOMMY FORUM B.S.

I think all of us can recall the first time we found ourselves on a mommy forum. Did it not feel like  you’d entered an alternate universe where people talked about poop in code? DH, DD, LO, WTF ARE THESE WOMEN TALKING ABOUT?? I guess the logic is that by abbreviating EVERYTHING, you’re saving time. I…

HAVING KIDS IS COOL. I SWEAR.

I have to be honest with you… Sometimes having a kid (or multiple kids, I’d imagine) blows.  Yeah I said it.   There are mornings when you look at your clock and the numbers 5:30 stare back at you and say mockingly, “hey, you signed up for this” – which makes you wish for a…

SH*T PREGNANT PEOPLE SAY

Pregnancy is no fucking joke – the constant aches and pains, the chronic digestive issues, the unfortunate lack of alcohol. It’s miraculous but it’s also weird AF. In just 40 weeks, women are faced with a slew of new and foreign experiences; experiences that compel them to say some pretty bizarre shit. If you’ve ever…

LOSING MACCABEE

Written by: Karen Nussbaum   Did you know that October 15th is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day? Don’t feel bad if you didn’t.

HATCH + ANI & WREN EVENT // PHOTO RECAP

Last Thursday morning we had the good fortune to have been invited to sit around with a bunch of brilliant powerhouse women to chat about motherhood, entrepreneurship and FASHUN – all our favourite things. *click photos to expand* It was a day of putting faces to Instagram handles and forging new friendships that we know…

LET’S TALK ALCOHOL

Written by Jillian Peterson * Ok Mamas, it’s time to suck it up and have that uncomfortable conversation that none of us really want to have about motherhood and alcohol. As we all know, heavy drinking has been all but normalized in our culture. The “wine o clock” phenomenon has taken flight, but from the…

I’M TRYING

Written by Meg Broadbent *  “I’m not pregnant.” It’s a phrase I’ve gotten used to saying lately, especially in texts to my husband. Tonight, I texted the same phrase to a few girlfriends, the ones who are in the know, who wait with me each month, eagerly awaiting day 28 when I’ll wake up in…

PRO (YOUR) LIFE

Today I checked the mail on my way out the door to meet a friend only to find a fucking anti-abortion flyer stuck to the inside wall of the mailbox like a parasite. No “trigger warning”, no, “DON’T OPEN THIS – A COMPLETE DIPSHIT JUST PUT IT IN YOUR MAILBOX” disclaimer. Just pictures of bloody…
