Essentials: For Mom

Posted on

This time of the year is busy for Moms and expecting mothers; routines are changing with kids going back to school and more babies are born in September and October than any other time of the year! We’ve rounded up some essentials for Mom to carry you through the season, whether you’re a mother of 2 or a Mom-to-be!

 1. When it comes to maternity wear, you want pieces that are transitional and cater to your changing body, which is why we LOVE Thyme Canada’s new Stork and Babe line! If you read our Baby Moon blog post you’re well aware that the collection is chic, modern and on-trend – we’re frequently seen rocking pieces at the office, showcasing it’s not just for pregnant women! The collection has a classic, luxury appeal, a look seen on many celebrity Moms like Victoria Beckham and Jessica Alba! Here are some of our favourite pieces from the fall collection.

 2. Whether your child is learning to bike, playing soccer or running around the playground, scratches and scrapes are inevitable. One product we suggest all Moms have on hand is Strataderm, a first-aid kit must-have that heals scars and protects wounds! It’s fast-drying, transparent and non-sticky…perfect for little ones!

3. For moms-to-be…did you know that winter months boast the highest conception rates? We recommend Stratamark for stretch mark prevention – with 50-90% of women developing stretch marks during pregnancy, start applying this at the beginning of your pregnancy to keep those pesky marks at bay!

We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about the new BASIS products, so it was only a matter of time until we had to try them out for ourselves. We quickly got the entire office on board with trying out Strataderm and Stratamark to get rid of any unwanted scars and stretch marks.  (Did you know most people over the age of 12 have a scar, and 80% of all women will develop stretch marks in their life-time?!)

With summer around the corner, we’re pretty excited to get confident about our skin in a bathing suit, a caftan, or just about any kind of summer gear (hello, shorts)! We ensured all the willing participants (it didn’t take much convincing) had their own Strataderm, and tried to schedule reminders to apply it religiously. Check out the ‘before’ photos of our BASIS challenge, and stay tuned for the ‘after’ shots, coming soon!
