Just Stuff We Love

From baby toys and cool threads to store openings and things to do with your little one. We cover the new, the old favourites and the best-kept secrets for everything baby.

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.


Stellar Maternity Clothes

Online shopping loses its excitement once you start dressing for one plus a bump. Lucky for expecting moms, Stella Maternity offers stylish clothes that will make you want to shop again.

“I believe pregnant women should dress to celebrate,” says founder and owner of Stella Maternity and Stella Baby, Trisha Jones. She launched the online shopping site in July 2006 because she found it impossible to find unusual, hip maternity clothes in her hometown of Savannah, GA.

Popular items include Anne Matthew dresses (that can be worn during pregnancy and while nursing), Everly Grey hippy-inspired dresses and tunics, and b-buckles (a small loop that snaps through your front belt loops to expand your pants during pregnancy and until you return to your pre-baby form). We also love Noppies Odessa blouse (seen here in black).

Stylish Maternity Wear

If you're dreading the arrival of warm weather because your new bump won't fit into the latest spring fashions, Hatch Maternity can help. Their spring/summer line includes new styles (such as cropped pants, tunic tops and the double ruched tank dress), guaranteed to flatter your pregnant form. Made of soft, stretchy knit jersey, the line takes you comfortably from office to evening and includes bright new colors for the season, including apple green and lavender. The fabric washes well and keeps it's shape–so it will even see you through a pregnancy or two. Just the Facts, Baby co-founder Sydney Loney loved her "classic wrap dress" from Hatch so much that she wore it post-baby. Available at retailers across North America, or online at



Cheap and Trendy Maternity Clothes

Thanks to fashionable new maternity lines like Ripe and Tummi, pregnancy has never looked better. But who wants to invest thousands in a designer wardrobe that may only fit for a few months? "I was horrfied at the price of looking good during pregnancy," says Calgary mom Lisa Farrell. So four years ago she opened Canada's first maternity lending closet. Borrow a classic suit or funky top and jeans for just $35 per outfit for a four-week cycle. The Maternity Closet also has formal wear for $40 a week. Don't live in Calgary? If you happen to be there on business you can come in for a fitting, then borrow everything online.
