10 Vancouver mama bears to play peek-a-boo with on Instagram

Oct 12 2017, 2:27 pm

Most of us millennials have baby scrapbooks or drawers of looseleaf photos documenting our childhood. For many of us, pictures are precious and have bent corners, faded colors, and can even be folded straight up the middle.

But modern rugrats live in the digital decade, with each of their Mum’s iPhones storing thousands of pictures of every moment.

In a time where Instagram is essentially the modern scrapbook, it’s fun to peek inside the lives of mothers. Take a gander at this list for your weekend play date and family time inspiration.

We snuck in one last week at the lake before Jones starts Montessori for the first time on Monday. As we were packing up to leave he asked if he could invite all his new friends to come with us. When I asked him what new friends, he replied “All my new friends from my new school”. (He hasn’t even met them yet.) Without a doubt this boy is the most social & outgoing person I know. Safe to say he’ll do just fine. Now if I can just perfectly align Stevie’s nap with his afternoon class. Easy peasy, right? . . . . #letthembittle#motherhoodunplugged#candidchildhood#childhoodunplugged#ohheymama#honestmotherhood#unitedinmotherhood#healthykids#lovecarrieson#babywearing#wearallthebabies#ergobaby#ergobaby360

Carley is a holistic nutritionist who focuses on nourishing the journey of motherhood. Her feed and blog are an excellent resource for making sure you and your baby are happy and healthy.

All mammals fit into 4 categories, which are directly determined by the varying levels of macronutrients in their milk. The more fat & protein a mammal’s milk contains, the longer they can leave their young. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The milk of cache animals (like rabbits) is very rich in fat & protein, which allows them to leave their young for up to 12 hours. Nest animals (cats, dogs) feed about every 4 hours. Follow animals (elephant, giraffe) can walk within an hour of birth, but stay close to mama and feed about every 2 hours. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Carry animals (humans, marsupials, apes) have the lowest content of fat & protein in their milk and it doesn’t keep our young full for long. Our newborns are the most dependant mammals and they need to nurse almost continually. This ensures that mama & baby stay in constant contact because baby’s survival depends on it. So to all the mama’s who feel like they always have a baby hanging off of them… this is why! (Do yourself a favour and get a baby carrier. It’s a total game changer). #ohbabypostpartum . . . . . #postpartum#healthypregnancy#pregnancynutrition#fourthtrimester#4thtrimester#motherhood#unitedinmotherhood#healthybabies#breastfeeding#breadtmilk#bossomnectar#healthymama#healthymom#healthybaby#breastfeeding#breastmilk#feedingbaby#newborn#takebackpostpartum#breastfeedwithoutfear#motherhoodunugged
