Mom Pants You'll Want to Wear
One of the biggest challenges after giving birth is finding a pair of pants you actually want to wear. You’ve lost your baby bump, but still have some extra weight that is keeping you out of your pre-baby clothes. Plus, your rapidly changing waistline makes buying most new pants a waste.
Chilly Jilly Lounge Pants are the perfect mix of comfort and style. They’re made with high quality wrinkle-resistant micro fiber and feature a flattering fold over waistband and a long inseam. The pants are flattering and comfortable and can even make the transition to exercise pants.
Bonus: Micro fiber material provides a clean no-fray cut so length is easily altered without hemming.

Coats for Kids
Looking for something to do with last year’s coats? West 49 is running their Coats for Kids campaign now through November 20. Just drop off your old winter coats at one of 70 stores across Canada and receive a voucher for $25 off any new winter jacket. (West 49 accepts all jacket sizes.) Donated jackets will be given to various youth shelters and charities across the country.

Eco-friendly parents are always looking for a way to reduce waste. Double-duty Funkins act as a reusable cloth napkin and placemat. The double-sided, 100 percent cotton fabric Funkins are made using low-impact dyes and are perfect for school lunches, on-the-go and at-home meals and snacks. And we love their festive designs – like the Monster Mash Orange Brains (seen here).

Best Rubber Boots
Nothing beats a good rubber boot when it comes to keeping kids’ feet warm and dry – and so, we bring you The Jimmy. Just like all the other laidback footwear from Vancouver-based Native Shoes, The Jimmy captures that carefree West Coast vibe (you can even throw them in the washing machine) and these boots are made for puddle jumping. They’re durable, waterproof, odour resistant and come in three playful colours: Regatta Blue, Hollywood Pink and Crayon Yellow. nativeshoes.com
