You may not have heard of MyKozy carseat covers, but as a new parent, it is inevitable you will wish you had! Picture this: It's a new-parent moment chock full of anxiety. You are out and about when a stranger approaches. Perhaps your new little one has just finally drifted off to sleep. Or maybe the baby has just gotten over a cold. Then along … [Read more...]

My husband and I are big followers of Dr. Harvey Karp, who recommends swaddling as part of his 5 S's for calming a baby (swaddling, shushing, swinging (NOT SHAKING), sucking (pacis) and side-positioning the baby). Thanks to my cousin Andi, we knew to know this before our son arrived two years ago. We had trouble swaddling Ben, due to our own … [Read more...]

I'm not sure what the fascination is with marbles, marble-runs and mazes but my almost 4-year-old is a little bit obsessed. Any time we're in a Learning Express, he races over to the sample marble runs and just has to send as many marbles as he can down the various paths and slides.

Yes, the fact that Santa took a few minutes from his busy schedule to call my … [Read more...]

Don't be shy... I want you to be honest here. Raise your hand if you still haven't ordered your holiday cards. Go ahead... we won't tell. Don't worry, usually, I'm in the same boat as you, scurrying to pick a photo, coming up with the perfect wording, finding a spot to order and getting it all here, and then out, in time. And I'll admit to … [Read more...]

This is right around the point of a pregnancy when the nights get longer, the trips to the bathroom get more frequent and my regular clothing no longer cuts it. I've been looking for some humorous tees to get me "over the bump" as it were, and the ones from baby&momma fit the bill. My personal favorite is the "I'm With My Inner Child" tee. It's … [Read more...]
