Matador Mini Pocket and 2.0 Blankets

Matador Mini Pocket and 2.0 Blankets

I first discovered this brand when cruising the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City this summer. I watched a video that promoted many of their products and I immediately thought, “what great products for parents!” They make backpacks, hip packs, blankets, wet bags, and more that can be scrunched and folded down into [...]

Bittersweet Weaning and the End of an Era

Bittersweet Weaning and the End of an Era

Breastfeeding my oldest son, TJ proved to be quite a challenge in the very beginning due to an undiagnosed tongue tie and a lack of professional support. Looking back, I find it a little surprising that I held on for so long, in so much pain, without giving up. I know that my husband’s unwavering [...]

Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

Instant Pot Pork Carnitas

We make pork carnitas in our house at least a couple of times every month. My boys love the shredded pork in quesadillas, in tacos, with eggs at breakfast, and my oldest has decided he now loves nachos. I have been following a recipe I got from Serious Eats faithfully and it’s been amazing every [...]

Diono Radian RXT Review

Diono Radian RXT Review

Back when I was a first-time mama, I honestly had no idea that car seats expired. With the massive quantity of information that new parents are expected to learn, that was one tidbit that didn’t make it into the swiss cheese that became my mommy brain. So when it was time to purchase a convertible [...]

Oakiwear Trail One Piece Rain Suit Review

I wanted to write a review about a product that has really surprised me on how fantastic it has been for both of my kids: the Trail One-Piece Rain Suit from Oakiwear. More than a few friends whom I met through Hike it Baby raved about their Oakiwear suits and I didn’t think they could [...]

DIY Galaxy Ice Dyed Onesie

I stumbled across the concept of dyeing fabric last year when I was deciding whether to sell my stone gray Lillebaby carrier. It wasn’t getting much love and had a ball point pen mark on the front. On Facebook I saw a gray baby carrier that had been dyed to look like a gorgeous galaxy [...]

Making Mealtime ezpz Book & Happy Mat Review

I received this book along with an awesomely bright green ezpz Happy Mat; this being my first review as a Brand Ambassador for the Guidance Guide, a product reviewing gig that was created by TheBabyGuyNYC and Jennifer Buske.

Comparing Toddler Carriers – Beco, Kinderpack, Tula, & Líllébaby

Comparing Toddler Carriers – Beco, Kinderpack, Tula, & Líllébaby

As my youngest son turns three this spring, I know my babywearing days are numbered. I continued to wear my oldest son through airports and on occasional hikes until he was almost four and we shared a closeness that I adored. The workout for my core and legs was helpful too. Standard baby carriers usually [...]
