Get ready to bookmark this page: we have lots of goodies lined up for you that are sure to save the day for the new mom in your life!
First up is…
The Belly Bandit B.F.F. Belly Wrap is sure to become your best friend six-to-eight weeks after you deliver!
Standing for Body Formulated Fit, the B.F.F. utilizes a corset-inspired, eco-friendly model that is super-soft, solidly constructed, and uniquely-shaped. Particularly amazing for petite and/or short-waisted women who typically struggle to find the right sizing, this patent-pending design cinches the waist, hips, and belly in a way that is comfortable and 100% natural-looking.
This belly wrap offers double compression, works to minimize the look of stretch marks, provides comfort after a C-section, supports your leg and back muscles, and adds support while breastfeeding.
Looking for your size? Head on over to our Belly Bandit B.F.F. Sizing Guide to ensure you find your perfect fit!
Healing Hollow Essential Oils Remedy Blends - Beautiful Birth mitigates tearing of the perineum when applied from week 36-onwards… and also helps both mom and baby after birth!
This is a favourite of doulas, who often offer this blend in a spray bottle both during birth and for postpartum care.
Also applicable to feet and/or pulse points during labour, this soothing botanical blend touts rose oil, lavender oil, and other all-natural oils that keep moms feeling (and smelling!) great.
Ahh, briefs: postpartum, is there anything better than ones that fit snugly and comfortably?
We here at Momease don’t think so! That’s why we love Ripe Maternity Seamless Briefs - Black.
These high-waisted briefs are ultra-comfortable, ultra-flexible, and even feature under-tummy ribbing for extra support. They’re perfect as both maternity and postpartum underwear thanks to their C-section support and seamless knit!
Get ready to chill, moms!
The Frida Mom Instant Ice Maxi Pads - 8 Pack take “cool” to a whole new level. These two-in-one postpartum padsicles combine instant cooling therapy, absorbent pads, and full coverage in one ingenious swoop.
These hospital bag-approved maxi pads include eight instant ice pads, instructions, and a promise to feel like you’re sitting on a cloud!
Last but certainly not least is the Peas In a Pod Happy Mumma Nipple Butter, which soothes, moisturizes, and heals dry and cracked skin.
This all-natural ointment is lovingly made with a blend of organic coca, shea, and mango butters, as well as healing lanolin. Its organic ingredients are perfect for both nursing moms and babies alike, especially because a little of this nourishing butter goes a long way!

In September, Torin was referred to a Pediatric Endochrinologist in order to receive endochrinology clearance prior to his surgery in Chicago. After discussing the ongoing management and the stability of his Hypothyroidism diagnosis (a very commonly-seen hormonal disorder in individuals with Down syndrome), we debated whether to schedule an ACTH (Adrenocorticotropic Hormone) Stimulation Test at the Pediatric Daycare Unit at Victoria General Hospital to check Torin's adrenal response to stress.
About a week after the stim test, we received a call from Torin's Endochrinologist. Much to their surprise, Torin's cortisol levels barely changed AT ALL following ACTH administration. He was diagnosed with Adrenal Insufficiency, also knows as Cortisol Dependency.
It's a HUGE relief that this condition was caught prior to Torin's liver surgery. We quickly begin daily oral Predinisone treatments to help manage his cortisol levels, and we have a modified emergency plan in place that involves immediate intramuscular injection of steroid hormone in the case of a medical illness or emergency. Such an emergency could be a severe head bump, a fever with vomiting, a broken bone or a car accident. The injectable steroid will help Torin's body cope with the stress associated with a traumatic event, keeping his blood pressure and blood sugar levels stable. It could absolutely save his life in the case of a severe trauma.
We also have a modified plan in place for the surgery to fix his Portosystemic Liver Shunt in Chicago at Lurie Children's Hospital this November. He will receive an increased "stress dose" or oral Prednisone (steroid) in advance of his surgery and prior to invasive tests or general anesthetics. Throughout his procedures and surgeries, his cortisol levels will be closely managed and he will receive IV doses of steroids while unconscious.
We are so relieved to be armed with this new diagnosis and with better knowledge of how to help keep Torin safe and healthy: both during his day-to-day activities, and throughout his upcoming international medical treatments. As always, we are extremely grateful to have access to such exemplary healthcare in our city, as well as amazing medical specialists to help manage Torin's health and wellness.

We are sharing our son Torin's medical diagnosis and treatment plan, in the hopes of garnering awareness for our small business and our family as we navigate this complex medical journey. Torin's path ahead is challenging, but his family, friends and community are working hard to rally around him and ensure that we are able to support, care for, and reassure him every step of the way.
Thank you to everyone who has reached out over this past year to offer words of concern and deep caring for our special boy, Torin. Thank you for the phone calls, home visits, meals, offers of childcare help, texts, reassuring hugs and smiles, DMs, and heartfelt chats at the shop counter. Thank you for choosing to make a purchase at our family business when you are able, for referring a friend or family member that's expecting, and for sharing a positive experience on social media or leaving a Google Review to help others discover Momease Baby Boutique - your continued kindness and ongoing support is truly heartwarming.
