Stokke Scoot Stroller Review

stokke scoot review

Finding a good stroller is like finding a great partner. You know it when you see it, but not after a lot of trial and error (and many duds along the way.) Which is why I know that the Stokke® Scoot™ Stroller is my knight in shining armor. When looking for a stroller, many Moms […]

Bummis Sun Line Review: Swimmi, Tankini and Sun Hat

Bummis Swimmi Diaper Review

It has finally gotten hot enough here in the northeast to go swimming. And thus, finally hot enough to think about putting the Bummis Swimmi swimsuit on my one year old girl. Being from New England, only the super hearty go into the ocean before July 1st and only the bold go into a backyard […]

MD Moms Wipes: Perfect for Travel

MD_Moms_Wipes

While I can rent a lot of baby items or bring a lot of baby gear with me when I travel, there was one item I couldn’t rent or bring: a baby bathtub. It was when I realized the huge benefit of the Gentle All-Over Clean Cleansing Towelettes by MD Moms. My seven month old and […]

Smuggler’s Notch Resort Review

Smuggs Digs

When I was invited to Smugglers Notch in Vermont for a Bloggers Weekend with my family,  I thought. “Neat”.  When I started looking into the resort amenities, I thought, “Wow.” After experiencing a long weekend there? One word: “Amazing”. So how do you put words into describing “Amazing”? Therein lies the problem. I have been […]

Diaper Bag that Looks Like a Handbag

diaper bag that looks like a purse

A diaper bag that looks like a handbag or a purse seems allusive. As a second-time Mom, I know how fleeting diaper bags can be. You really need them the first year and after the first year, the need dissipates. You don’t need as much stuff and that huge bag doesn’t fit the new toddler lifestyle […]

Protecting Your Baby’s Eyes From the Sun

BabySunglasses

There are a lot of cute accessories we buy our babies; everything from fabulous hair bows, fuzzy boots and adorable shoes. Yet, one super cute and trendy look is actually beneficial to our growing babies’ eyes: sunglasses. You may think, “Sunglasses in the winter?” Yes! It is not just the scorching rays of a hot […]

Georgi Stroller Bag

georgi stroller bag

As an owner of many strollers, the one thing I dislike about them are the rather unflattering ‘parent consoles’. Let alone the un-functionality, and it has to stay on the stroller. Seriously, who designs these things? However, when I saw the look of this Georgi Stroller Bag, it had style written all over it. Yet, […]

Seventh Generation Products: Wee Generations Baby Care

Seventh_Generation_Baby_Care

The Seventh Generation motto (and the inspiration behind the name) is that the company wants to “To inspire a revolution that nurtures the health of the next seven generations”……..starting with the one you just created – your baby. Ever since I was pregnant with my son, I became more aware (and more concerned) about the […]

Should I Have Diastasis Recti Surgery?

Mom and Child

There are two situations that I wasn’t expecting as a result of a Diastasis Recti, Umbilical and Ventral surgery: stopping breastfeeding before I was expecting to, and not having more children. I shared my medical situation and here is the emotional side. Diastasis Recti Surgery For those of you who read the birth story of […]

Why Do I Still Look Pregnant?

Pregnancy Comparision

{This is a rather long post. Yet, as most of my pregnancy posts this past year, it’s worth reading since it’s like watching a train wreck.} Imagine walking down the street and everyone constantly stops you to congratulate you on your pregnancy. Others smile at you in the elevator and ask when you are due. I […]

If you are looking for a gymini or a playmat with the ability to add toys, move them around, with an adjustable arch, large play surface, soft padding and stimulating colors, all in one product, then definitely check out the TinyLove Gymini Move & Play. I registered three years ago for the Gymini Monkey Island, […]

TinyLove Butterfly Stroll Arch Video Review

The TinyLove Tiny Princess Butterfly Stroll (or the gender neutral Sunny Stroll) is probably one of the best $20 you can spend. This baby item can be used to entertain and engage your little one in many different locations. Put it on a bouncer, a highchair, a stroller, a car seat and any other place […]

TinyLove 3-in-1 Rocker Napper Review

The TinyLove 3 in 1 Rocker Napper is one of my favorite baby gear items this time around with my second child. I love, love, love the style (clean lines) and the design (neutral colors with no characters or fluffy things). But even more so, I heart the functionality of the product. It replaces the […]

KidsII InGenuity Automatic Bouncer Review

Getting a baby to sleep can be one of the most frustrating things a parent must endure. Most notable is the endless bouncing to soothe them. Thus, cue my KidsII InGenuity Automatic Bouncer review. I don’t know how many times I have had to use a ball to bounce my kids to sleep. As both […]

Baby Pool

So after having a baby gender reveal party, sharing my various pregnancy stories, and other pregnancy preparations, we are finally in the home stretch. I am due on June 22nd, so I thought it would be fun to have a baby pool! A baby pool is where you guess the date and time that this baby […]

Sharing Details of Your Pregnancy or Birth Story Online

This has been a very interesting pregnancy in that my experience of it has been more public. When I was pregnant with my first child, I had a share site that I only used for family. While it was also a personal pregnancy journal, one could only access it by a password. At the time, […]

Preparing a Toddler for a New Sibling

Preparing_a_Toddler_For_a_New_Sibling

There has been a lot I’ve been doing to prepare for baby #2: reinstalling the infant car seat, dusting off the pack-in-play, and pulling baby clothes out of storage. But the one thing I didn’t have to do the first time around is to prepare a toddler for baby #2. So we have been in […]

Baby Style at BlogHer

I’m really bummed I cannot attend Reviewers Retreat this year because of my pregnancy airline restrictions. Since my due date got moved up, I can’t fly after 37 weeks. Thus, I’m hoping to be able to pull off Blog World a few days later, since it only requires a train ride and no evil TSA […]

New Infant Swaddling Recommendations

How to Swaddle a Baby

As a Mom that is about to have another baby, I’m already adding more swaddling blankets, like these from Aden and Anais, as well as swaddle sleepsacks, like this one from Halo, to my parenting stash. Yet, new information has been released about swaddling that any parent – whether you are expecting your first child […]

Tooth Fairy Kids Club

In preparation for my MAM Baby party, I learned a lot about teeth, oral products, and educational resources to help parents (and kids) establish good oral hygiene. If you read my post-party blog post, I had mentioned the program called the America’s ToothFairy Kids Club by the National Children’s Oral Health Foundation (NCOHF), and I wanted to […]

Drool Baby Expo by Magic Beans

The Drool Baby Expo

I am really excited about sharing this post again because, well, it is about a super-awesome high-end baby expo here in Boston. Not New York. Not LA. Here…in Beantown. Aren’t you now excited too? This extraordinary expo called Drool (awesomely clever name) is the brainchild of the locally amazing Magic Beans, in collaboration with Big City […]

Quick Zip Sheet Review

Changing crib sheets can be such a pain! Especially when the mattress is on the lowest setting. Trying to reach in to get the mattress, taking the sheet off and then putting it back on, is a challenge. Then add the fact that us Moms often have to do all of this in the middle […]
