Edmonton: Oh, mama!

Forget the “it” bag and the “it” shoe, fall’s hottest accessory is a bun in the oven.  Not to be outdone by Angelina or Gwen, Edmonton’s fashion cognoscenti have Sweet Momma, a full service spa and boutique, (#109, 10903-23 rd Ave, (780) 432-2265, sweetmomma.com) to satisfy their stylish cravings.

Owner Jolene Ali’s carefully-edited selection of fashion conscious accessories and mom-and-baby safe beauty products will have you looking fabulous while pregnant and post-partum.  The Metrowrap is a must-have item for every yummy mummy.  My athletic husband may adore his Baby Bjorn, but I need something to go with my Manolos.  With just enough bling to satisfy your inner diva and available in colors that complement fall’s jewel toned palette, this baby carrier is the perfect marriage of fashion and function.  Other essentials include, Bebe au Lait nursing covers, which have boning in the neckline to provide you with a perfect view of your infant, and Lilypadz nursing pads, which can be worn while swimming.  I also highly recommend Aquarella nail lacquer (a water-based polish that is safe to use during pregnancy) and Belli Motherhood’s Elasticity Belli Oil (developed by an obstetrician, this is one stretchmark potion that really works).  Toss everything into a Lexie Barnes diaper bag and you’re set.  Be sure to pamper yourself with a mani/pedi while stocking up on your favorite items in the boutique.  The folks at the spa will have you looking and feeling like a Sweet Momma indeed!
