Hey Y’all. It’s Erin.

Recently, I’ve been doing  “self discovery” journal prompts. 

I’ve just been searching on pinterest or google and trying out some that I find.

It’s been my effort towards self care.

Most of the time they’re so deep that I struggle to answer.

“Describe your perfect day.”

“Where do you see yourself in 5 years?”

“What would you do with $1000?”

These are just a few of the ones that I’ve had a hard time answering.

I thought that they’d be easy and fun to answer.

 However, self reflection tends to take some time and a lot of thought. 

This one really settled on my brain as I thought about motherhood. It made me think about what I would tell myself when I was pregnant.

“What advice would you give your younger self?”

I want to share my response in an open letter to new parents.

Introducing the Baby Do Better Program

Hi Folks! It’s Tamara here.

This week I have the honour of introducing you to a give-back program very near and dear to our hearts. The Baby Do Better Program!

Baby do better, Introducing the Baby Do Better Program by LilHelper.ca Blog

Some of you might be familiar with our  ‘Baby Do Good’ program. Baby Do Good was put into place when Lil Helper as a company first began back in late 2011. The program saw us donating one brand new Lil Helper diaper for every 3 diapers sold.

We are proud to say that under Baby Do Good, Lil Helper donated several thousand brand new diapers over the 7.5 years that the program was in place. This is a number that we are very proud of!

While Baby Do Good saw us giving back in rewarding numbers, as a company we struggled with the fact that we very rarely received feedback from the individuals who actually received the donated diapers. This is why we ultimately decided to revise our give-back program to something that felt more personal and community driven.

And thus, Baby Do BETTER was born!
