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

As my youngest son turns three this spring, I know my babywearing days are numbered.

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 [...]
