This is a product I really wish I had known about when my son was a baby. The receiving blankets I had for him were decent, but they were not big enough to use for swaddling and the fabric quality was questionable. Seriously, don’t let yourself be fooled like I was by thinking that all swaddle blankets are created equally. They’re not! I remember hearing about the aden + anais Classic Muslin Swaddles and wondered what all the hype was about. Well now, after purchasing my first set for my daughter, I know!
Each swaddle is made out of 100% cotton muslin and they are pre-washed. The fabric is extremely soft and frequent washing does not compromise the quality. No need to worry [...]
In my shopping for a baby carrier, I knew it had to meet my standards for style and healthy positioning of my baby’s legs to avoid hip dysplasia. I ultimately decided on a BabyHawk Mei Tai carrier, but when it arrived, my hubby was less than impressed. So we immediately set out to find one that he would also enjoy using. That lead us to the Infantino Fusion carrier. This is a more modern working of a baby carrier, similar in scope to an Ergobaby that everyone on every other mommy message board seems to love, BUT, a much better value for our budget. Clocking in at only $39.99, this carrier is one of the better valued pieces of baby equipment we’ve found and we receive lots of [...]
Honestly, one of my favorite things to do is wear my baby. Not only does it allow me to have him close to me, for both of our comfort these days, it also allows me to get other things done around the house.
Before I invested in a carrier, I did some research to find out what the best positions were for RJ as he grew and there is a lot to read out there about which ones are best to prevent hip dysplasia and support an infant’s neck and trunk. I’m no doctor, so I won’t pretend like I can rehash the science of it all. You can check it out for yourself here.
The main factors I considered when choosing my carrier were support for RJ, value over time (would it grow with [...]
I am so excited to review this bumbo seat as I was super happy with it, my daughter loves it, and it is MORE than just a typical bumbo seat. We bought this seat before our daughter was born, she is now almost two years old and still using it! This is a 3-stage seat, meaning it can be used during three stages of your little one’s development.
The first stage is the basic bumbo seat stage to support your little one when learning to sit on their own. We started using it when our daughter was 3 months old and able to hold her head up. At this age they start to become very interested in whats going on around them so it is perfect because they’re not only working on [...]
