Why Do You Care? Extended Nursing & Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau


I was talking with my mother this morning about our “First Lady,” Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau and how she continues to breastfeed her youngest son Hadrien, who just turned two February 28th. And I couldn’t help but think of all the opinions, judgments and criticism she’s faced with after admitting such a simple fact.

I have a 17 month old, who nurses, and I find it fascinating that people feel the need to share their unsolicited opinions on breastfeeding, especially extended breastfeeding and even go so far as to “pre-judge” when they state “I hope you’re not going to be nursing when he’s ____ old.” I can’t help but wonder, WHY?!?!

First off, why the F@*% do you care? Seriously? Why do other people care so much what a mother chooses to do with her body, and the choices she makes for her child, and her family? Do you truly believe that she is somehow harming her child? And if so, where the F@*% did you get that belief from? Really, I’d love to know how some members of our society came to the collective conclusion that extended nursing is wrong; how the benefits of breast-milk somehow disappear after whatever age they‘ve decided should be the cutoff.

I have one piece of advice: Worry About Yourself (WAY).

Women are faced with far too many judgments in the world, we’re either doing too much or too little. Managers avoid hiring us because we’re more likely to take time off to procreated and/or take care of kids, yet if we choose not to have children we’re considered selfish!?! To be criticized about our choice to nourish our child is absolutely absurd, especially when it comes from people who aren’t mothers, or even parents; keep your opinions to yourself, wait until you’re a parent and then do what works for you, and I will continue to do what works for me.

So nurse on Sophie!
And to all the critics out there, if you want to be heard, come at us with some science… and even then..Go (a)WAY!

Happy Bump Day – Oscars Edition

First there was Hump Day, which lead to Bump day, which inevitably leads to Baby day (which by the way, is EVERY day), but today let’s celebrate Bump Day with this adorable bump,


When I first saw this Prada gown on Emily Blunt, I was a little disappointed, she’s so wonderful and I’ve never been much of a Prada fan (go for it, hate me); but after seeing this photo, although I hate the neckline and haven’t been a fan of the empire waist since the late 90s, I really love that colour on her. And let’s just be thankful that while gestating, she’s out on the scene and merely in Miu Miu instead of a muumuu. (See what I did there? Muumuu, Miu Miu. Prada Pun.)

Red Carpet Pregnancy Style: Chrissy Teigen


When I was pregnant I was convinced I’d be one of these women, you know the ones who still wore heels and put an effort into their appearance and epitomized the pregnancy “glow.” Whether or not I succeeded is up to debate (I definitely gave up those dreams post-partum!), but I love seeing women who exemplify what I aspired to be, and Chrissy Teigen NAILED it!


This beaded Marchesa is absolute perfection on her and her Legendary bump (see what I did there?), she looks glamorous and effortless; and to think just hours before the Red Carpet her dress was still getting the finishing touches, as two seamstresses were captured sewing beads over her belly!
