Deuter Junior Backpack

Deuter Junior Backpack

Deuter is a brand well known for backpacks and framed baby carriers that are great for hiking, camping, and backpacking. We picked up the Deuter Junior Backpack when we were looking for a kid-sized backpack for my kids, intending to use it for hiking and camping, but we wanted it to also be big enough [...]

Matador Droplet Dry Bag

Matador Droplet Dry Bag

I just had to share another goodie that I purchased from Matador: the Droplet Dry Bag. Almost ALL parents have had a time in their child’s lives where they have needed a dry bag; a bag to hold wet things, wet clothes, a wet cloth diaper, a wet blanket. It doesn’t matter what substance made [...]

Comparing Travel Booster Seats: mifold vs. Bubble Bum

Comparing Travel Booster Seats: mifold vs. Bubble Bum

We’re a family that travels quite a bit by air and I’m sure all of us parents can agree that flying with a convertible car seat or a high-back booster seat can be a huge pain. There’s the stress of having to carry it along with your luggage all while wrangling your kids. There’s also [...]

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

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

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

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. It’s chalked full of real parents giving their honest opinions on baby and kid products. I have [...]
