I cannot be the only mom who goes for style and “chicness” when shopping for baby and kids’ products. I may be slightly ridiculous, but still, I know I’m not the only one! Since I have a little girl, I have always wanted everything to be as pink and girly as possible. If we have a boy someday, well we’ll be buying a lot of new baby stuff I suppose. So with that being said, when I decided I needed a jogger, my mission was to find one that wasn’t $200 or more, but was cute, girly and good quality. I searched in a few different places, and finally found the InStep Safari Swivel Wheel Jogger in the color wine on Amazon.
I loved the burgundy [...]
As a mom to a toddler and a preschooler, I am always on the lookout for new products that can help make our lives just a little bit easier. In particular, mealtime is an area where I am always searching for some extra help with.
Battling with my independent toddler over spoon feeding her yogurt every morning had become an everyday occurrence. Due to London’s independent nature, she started refusing being spoon-fed by mommy several months ago. So, I have let her spoon feed herself from a younger age than I did with her older brother. Only problem is – half way through she gets frustrated with the spoon and it usually results in her throwing her yogurt container off the side of [...]
Bath time at our house just got a whole lot sweeter. Up until now, I had never taken a bath with Ros. I know, I’m such an unloving mom. I guess for me, bathing and sleeping are things I just don’t like to do with company.
But lately Ros has been seriously screaming, crying, and frantically trying to escape the bathtub when she sees me get the cup and tell her it’s time to wash her hair. I thought that getting in the tub with her might help ease any fear she has. It may have helped a little, but I think she was mostly confused about why I was in there with her LOL. We still had fun!!
So if anyone has tips on making hair washing an easier experience for [...]
Calling all babywearing parents! If you’re from Florida (like me) or any place that gets considerably warm outside, you have to check out the ErgoBaby 360 Four-Position Cool Air in Carbon Grey. The 360 Cool Air is a performance carrier from the ErgoBaby family of carriers with some new features and improvements from the previous 360 design.
The 360 Cool Air has the same safety and reliability that we’ve come to know and love from ErgoBaby.
Rather than the noisy Velcro waistband that so many 360 carrier parents complained about, this carrier reverts back to the previous waistbelt buckle design with a slight modification. The lumbar support is a floating piece [...]
Where are all my mamas of picky little eaters?! I, for one, am raising my hand way up in the air! My oldest, Noah (3.5 yrs old), is as picky as they come. Would you believe me if I said he’s never eaten an actual blueberry before?! Or that he’s never eaten more than about 3 vegetables his entire life?! If it can be found in the produce section of the grocery store, chances are he doesn’t eat it. I should probably clarify a bit because he has eaten plenty of fruit + veggie baby food back in the day. Since becoming a preschooler, he does drink the occasional smoothie (with hidden veggies), and will also snack on a variety of toddler/big kid fruit pouches. But, when it comes to fruit + [...]
Now that my toddler is a 1 year-old, we’re more keen to snacking on-the-go instead of stopping to nurse whenever he gets a little hungry. I used recycled baby food jars and other small containers for awhile, until I realized that this wasn’t doing anything for his independence, and he let that be known. When I’d give him a puff or garbanzo bean, he would toss it until he could grab one by himself. Many times, this resulted in him grabbing handfuls out of whatever receptacle I was using and trying to stuff them all in his mouth at once.
Then, a fateful Babies ‘R’ Us trip changed our lives…or so I thought. I stumbled upon Munchkin’s [...]
