This past weekend we headed out to the farmers market with our new baby Leo in tow. And I decided that it would make perfect sense to test an organic hemp/cotton sling by Hotslings ($50) while shopping for my organic produce. I have little experience with slinging a newborn so I was a little nervous! I'd planned to bring a stroller as well, … [Read more...]

It's so nice when someone comes along and completely (and cleverly) re-designs something so commonplace, that no-one has really considered it in a while. Such as the baby bottle. Sure there have been variations on nipple size and all kinds of innovations to reduce bubbles. And more recently we've seen a reaction to the bisphenol-a leaching … [Read more...]

It's all about packaging: a cute product in an even cuter package, and I'm sold. Dlish Baby Clothes offers both. Four solid colored onesies with prints of kids' favorite foods (PB&J, Mac & Cheese, Peas & Carrots and Fruit Punch) are rolled up and packed in a silver lunchbox. They don't offer online sales, but you can purchase by emailing … [Read more...]

I love this photo that I took of Cole yesterday. It's hard to see at this size but he has the cutest expression on his face. Anyway, I also wanted to share because his new shoes were just perfect for Easter and for the outfit - and everyone was commenting on them so of course I had to share here. They are the See Kai Run "London" shoe and I got … [Read more...]

Their stuff is gorgeous - earthy tones, simple designs and best of all eco-friendly. The blanket is 100% natural, and just simple and comfy, as it should be … [Read more...]

From my email inbox this morning: One day only coupon at Disney's online store, SPRING20 for 20% off sitewide today only. Although it's definitely not a deal unless you spend $50 or more and use the coupon for $5 shipping (SHIPFOR5) because otherwise their shipping negates the whole 20% off thing. You can use multiple coupons. … [Read more...]

The Essential Baby Organizer: Birth to One Year ($19.95) is a follow up to The Essential Pregnancy Organizer by Dani Rasmussen and Antoinette Perez. File this one under "Smart ideas". Someone like myself, who is on her second child, is just too busy and scatterbrained to remember all the things about my daughter. Baby Allegra is already … [Read more...]

Ever since we opened the DVD, my daughter hasnít stopped dancing with Prima Princessa, a fabulous DVD that showcases the Paris Opera Ballet performing excerpts of Swan Lake. I actually enjoyed watching this childrenís DVD! It is just the right length to keep your child engaged throughout the 40 minute video. This is a truly beautiful performance … [Read more...]

Hi Mommies... after a grueling four hour delay in Orlando airport (and circling in the air for another hour once we actually got to Philly - oh so fun when you have a 16 month old lap child), we're home safe and sound! I have plenty of Disney-related reviews coming which I can't wait to share. So now that I'm back, I had a couple things that … [Read more...]
