Evenflo Johnny Jump Up

Evenflo Johnny Jump Up

When I was a little kid, my parents had a Johnny Jump Up for my little brother and I distinctly remember thinking, “Man! That looks like fun!” But I was too big for it and sulked in the hallway as I watched my little brother, and then my little sister, giggle away while bouncing up [...]

Summer Infant Slim & Secure Monitor

Summer Infant Slim & Secure Monitor

I knew from the beginning, after finding out that we were expecting our first child, that I really wanted to purchase a video monitor. After going back and forth debating between the movement monitor and the video monitor, I decided the video would be a better long-term purchase for us. I figured we would use [...]

Sweet Slumber Sound Machine

Sweet Slumber Sound Machine

At my baby shower I received the Cloud B Gentle Giraffe Soother. We used it for a while after Annabelle was born for white noise, but it operated on batteries alone and it timed out after a maximum of 45 minutes. It was like clockwork— the giraffe noise would time out, and within a minute [...]

Timbuk2 Swig Backpack

Timbuk2 Swig Backpack

When I was pregnant I really didn’t know what I wanted in a diaper bag. I didn’t care for designer brands or brightly-colored patterns. All I knew was that I wanted a bag that didn’t scream DIAPER BAG. I ran across the brand name Diaper Dude and I really liked their concepts. We registered for [...]

JJ Cole Essentials Blanket

JJ Cole Essentials Blanket

We received our JJ Cole Essentials Blanket as a surprise gift from an out-of-town friend after our daughter was born. We absolutely love it! We’ve used it at the park, the beach, the zoo, in our front yard, festivals and I’ve even laid it out at an indoor playground (you can never be too careful [...]

Sony BabyCall Monitor

Sony BabyCall Monitor

There are many, many, MANY options available when you start looking more closely at baby monitors. Most mamas I know have one, but the latest trend seems to be video monitors. We weren’t interested in spending that much on ours (or having someone else pay that much if it was a gift) so we decided [...]

Mesh Feeders

Mesh Feeders

A mesh feeder was one of those things that I had never heard about or seen until I had a child. For mamas or mamas-to-be that are not sure what they are, they’re a small feeding tool that you can use while your child is starting solid foods to help them gum and suck on [...]

Little Partners Learning Tower

Little Partners Learning Tower

I picked up a Little Partners Learning Tower about four months ago. We adore it, but there are definitely some pros and cons. As a single mom, it is the only way I am able to cook dinner for Little Man and myself without a) a whiny boy pulling on my leg the entire time or [...]

Britax B-Agile Stroller

Britax B-Agile Stroller

When my daughter was just about eight months old, my husband I and started shopping around for a new, “big-girl” stroller. We had previously been using a stroller designed for infants so it was time to upgrade. After a few weeks of research, in-store testing and price comparison, we were excited to purchase the BRITAX [...]

Boppy Pillow

Boppy Pillow

When I am asked what the most useful baby item for my son when he was a newborn was, I don’t have to think hard. The first thing that comes to my mind is my Boppy Pillow! I believe every new parent has that “one thing they could not live without.” The Boppy was mine! [...]
