We went through some constipation issues with our son as an infant, and now with our almost 7 month old daughter (she's been on some solids for about a month now) Both my kids were breastfed but still struggled with bowel movements at times - right now it seems my baby girl is a bit bunged up - as I...

Melanie - if your friend really likes her doctor (as I did) another option is to hire a doula - they are trained birth coaches and are there the entire labour, as well as visiting before and after the birth..I had a doula with both of my births and highly recommend them! There are a number here in V...

Hi Charlene - I'm pretty sure the only place you can get them installed these days is at the dealers - we called Canadian Tire recently and they sell the anchors but won't install them (liability issues) Really, imho, for peace of mind and your child's safety $60 seems like a small price to pay...

HI Shawna, I totally agree about the safety thing. $60 isn't a lot, I am just more cheezed that they only do "one" for free. I am surprised after you spend thousands on buying the car and upkeep (if you use the dealer that is). Maybe I am having a grumpy day. LOL Thanks for all the info though! I t...

Hey Meg - Wendy is right - if you were touched by "A Child Called It" (what a psycho his mother was! - and what an inspirational story his life has become) then you will probably not be able to put down Torey Hayden's books - she was a special needs teacher and her books are heartbreaking, fascinati...

When I was pregnant I was all over these things: - manicures - pedicures - facials - pregnancy massages (oh yeah!) As for courses, I think there are some pregnant bellydancing courses (anybody know who teaches this?), pregnant workouts at the Y, aqua fit (maybe she'd like to do that? - just check wi...

Jenna - you said you are eating too much bread - what if you cut it out for a month - cold turkey no bread! And then when you reintroduce it to your diet make sure it is 100% whole grain - and one slice per day - less if you are eating other carbs - bread is a killer! I thought it would be really ha...

Be afraid, Pixie Mom - be very afraid - because the whipped cream icing is so damn light and delicious, it beckons from the fridge long after the party is over (you could literally eat 5 pieces in about 10 minutes it's that good) - my advice - send the leftovers home with party guests!!!!
