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 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 [...]

Líllébaby Essentials Baby Carrier

Líllébaby Essentials Baby Carrier

It seems like there are hundreds of different baby carriers on the market these days at a variety of price points. I still remember the day I told my husband how much I spent on my first baby carrier. It was 2010 and a Beco Butterfly 2 that I bought brand new for $149 (and [...]

Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat

Chicco NextFit Zip Convertible Car Seat

Whenever I visit a baby store I can’t help but head over to the car seat section to see the newest models, even though we are done having babies (our youngest is 17 months).

myheartcreative Ring Sling Review & Giveaway

I am a prolific user of baby carriers. I just love the closeness, bonding, and freedom it gives me. Many people, mostly from my generation, will look at babywearing as a “fad” or something that helicopter parent’s use; I find that the older generations look more fondly at babywearing and see its importance. However, for [...]

Carseat Cinema Review and Giveaway!

The Carseat Cinema is one of those things that people comment on when they see me using it, “now why didn’t I think of that?” The idea is simple, and very smart. It’s a hanging protective cover for your tablet or smart phone, so your child can play or watch a show while keeping the [...]

Líllébaby Organic Baby Carrier Review & Giveaway

I’m no stranger to the awesomeness that is babywearing. I’m serious folks, babywearing is not some hippie fad! It’s a hugely legit thing that makes parenting easier for every mama and daddy I know who practices it. I’ve shared more than once how much it’s impacted my life, through multiple airports and extensive travel or [...]

Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

Chicco Echo Stroller Review and Giveaway

When I was pregnant – back when my son was in-utero and I basically had no idea what he would actually need  - I tried to put a lot of thought into what I’d want in a stroller when he came. Having never had a child before, it’s not surprising that I put emphasis on [...]

Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Review

Maxi Cosi Pria 70 Review

In January we transitioned Elizabeth (13-months-old at the time) from her infant car seat to a convertible seat. Although she was (and still is) able to fit in to her Britax Chaperone (you can read my review here) seat per Britax’s height and weight requirements, she was very ready to be sitting more upright in a [...]
