Jessica Alba shares her No. 1 tip for new moms



On Wednesday, Jessica Alba was in Toronto to promote The Honest Company’s Canada-wide launch. The baby, home and beauty brand co-founded by the actress focuses on products that are ethically manufactured, non-toxic and safe for the entire family. While the company was been around since 2011 – and products can be shipped to Canada via the online site, the home and baby line will now be available in 700 stores across the country, including popular grocers Loblaws and Sobeys.

“We’re really excited to officially expand our brand into Canada,” Alba said at the event.

The mother of two graciously made her way around the room, talking to everyone and sharing tips how to make your home safe and healthy.

“If we all have one thing in common, it’s that we’re busy,” she said. “We don’t have time to worry if the products we’re using are safe for our family. I wanted to create a company that would take away that worry so we can focus on spending more time enjoying each other’s company.”

In Alba’s book, The Honest Life, she offers advise on creating a healthy home, including recipes, decor and routines. But when we asked her if she could offer one tip for new moms, it was all about sleep.

“Figuring out a sleep routine is so important in those first few months,” she tells Yahoo Canada. “It’s not easy but one thing I found really helped was pumping after my 11 p.m. feeding so that Cash, or my mom could do the 3 a.m. feeding and let me sleep. You’ll still be exhausted but that at least gives you a bigger chunk of time to get some rest.”
