We girls at Shop for Baby believe that no mom out there should be carrying an ugly diaper bag that weighs a ton-and-a-half. We know that moms tote around a lot of stuff…and we also know that moms need to tote this stuff around in style! That’s where MagZ BagZG comes into the picture – where necessity meets great fashion.
Wait a minute! Are we saying that diaper bags can be cool and functional after all? Gasp! That’s right moms! MagZ BagZ has created fantastic arm candy in funky patterns and fabulous colours, while keeping the bag functional enough to carry the necessities of your life – whether you’re out in the world with baby, or you’re stealing some “Me Time” on your own.
The big mega plus that we love here at Shop for Baby: MagZ BagZ are hand crafted in Canada, with 100% cotton that has UV and mildew inhibitors built-in.
When you become a parent, you realize how quickly time flies and how fast your little cutie pies grow up; which is why it is so important to capture those precious moments. I recently had a photo session for the kids – and what an amazing experience! I now have beautiful photos gracing my walls. They serve as reminders of how sweet and amazing my children are…especially when they are being little rascals! I am now taking a vow to have professional photo shoot done with the family every year – so that I can keep my photos fresh and up to date with an annual photo album keepsake. The Shop for Baby team thinks you should do the same!
If you are looking for a photographer, than you should check out Anita Hadjur. She is a creative talent in the Greater Toronto Area with an eye for capturing those special moments. We, at Shop for Baby, love her beautiful photography – she manages to make 5-day old wrinkled newborns look gorgeous! Whether it’s a newborn session, a fun photo shoot with the toddlers, or a family gathering – Anita has a fresh perspective and pays attention to all the details. Her portfolio is breathtaking and will make you melt!
For those in the GTA and Halton region, please drop contact her and schedule your photo shoot!
Not all cupcakes are created equal!
If you’ve never had a Tea Amo cupcake then you are definitely missing out.
Based in Toronto, this cupcake company doesn’t just dabble with plain-Jane chocolate or vanilla flavours – don’t get us wrong, you’ll still find this variety on the menu…but with a twist. Like Tea Amo’s tea infused Jasmine Vanilla with pastel buttercream, or other inspired flavours like Peanut Butter Chocolate with peanut butter frosting. Our favs are the Chai Latte with whipped cream frosting, and the Almond Lintzer with almond buttercream and jam – yum!
Do you have a particular flavour in mind, or a cupcake concept that you want to see come to life? Tea Amo also specializes in by-request-only custom creations to suit your needs and for any occasion.
And, if you’re looking for a fabulous way to celebrate your kidlet’s birthday – why not call Tea Amo for their way-too-fun Cupcake Parties? Owner Oksana Ulisko runs a cupcake decorating workshop for kids, while Stephanie Clark of Life in the Moment Photography snaps up pics of your cutie-pies decorating their delicious treats.

Brag About It is the perfect example of what we’re talking about! Melissa began making jewelry after her second son was born out of the need for her own “girl time”, and wound up on Etsy.
Based out of Oakville, Ontario, Brag About It offers one-of-a-kind hand stamped and custom pieces that are as uniquely distinct as you. Have a look through Brag About It’s collection on Etsy and you’ll find Sterling Silver stamped pendants paired with sparkling Swarovski Crystals and birthstones.
And if there’s something else you have in mind – then make a request for a custom designed Brag band, necklace or bracelet.
We love Melissa’s collection!

TREND ALERT! You wore them in the early ‘80s when you were a die-hard Madonna fan, and now they’re back and better than ever! That’s right Mommies, lace leggings are THE hottest trend of the moment.
