In 2017, we will be working with a small team of hand-picked, super-star Canadian moms. The moms will be our MomChat 2017 twitter party hostesses, help us promote the awesome brands we work with and be the first to review products for the whole family. We review products like strollers, car seats, toys, sleeping & feeding products and more.
Meet this year’s #MomSquad
Jennifer Van Huss
My name is Jennifer, I’m 37 years old, married to my University sweetheart and I’m a working mother of 3. 1 Heart, 1 Family was born of my love of sharing parenting advice with my mommy friends. I was at a MNO (mom’s night out) party, when a new mom was crying in frustration over her son not being able to sleep through the night. After I started sharing some of the experiences and hurdles I had over come as a mom of 3, I knew I wanted to share them with the world. I am by no means the perfect mother, but I feel through my mistakes, hurdles and occasional triumphs, other mom’s will learn that they are not alone! I love reviewing products and seeing the amazing new things available for Mom’s and kids alike. I hope that my reviews provide help to those in the market for a similar product. I hope you will follow my journey in motherhood with my husband, DS10, DS8, and DD5!
My name is Jacquie Lycka and I live in Parkallen, a rockin’, locally-minded community in the Heart of Edmonton, Alberta.

I have a 15-month old daughter named Anna, and many of my recipes focus on feeding her healthy, local food.
