Britax B-AGILE Travel System with the B-SAFE Car Seat

Britax B-AGILE Travel System with the B-SAFE Car Seat

Britax has an impressive safety record with their car seats but, until recently, they were known primarily (at least among my mom friends) for their toddler seats and high weight limit boosters. I personally used other infant seats, even though I knew that Britax is the industry leader in crash safety standards, because of the convenience of travel systems. Living in suburbia, my main use for a stroller is when my baby falls asleep in his … Read entire article »

Bubzidoo Stroller Swaddle Giveaway!

Bubzidoo Stroller Swaddle Giveaway!

We all know well that sleep is the key for a happy family. Mom and dad need it as much as the baby does! Getting a baby to sleep, however, is easier said than done. My three month old son, for example, will still only sleep on his stomach, which is starting to become an issue! Babies up to 9 months old are sent sleep signals when they’re swaddled tightly. Swaddling your baby is easy enough … Read entire article »

Best Products for Traveling with Baby

We’ve taken our kids to Lisbon (thanks, Voyage.Tv!), on a road trip to Mystic, on a cruise (thanks, Disney!), to Savannah, and in and out of Manhattan more times than I can count. Back in the B.C. (Before Children) Era, my husband and I loved traveling all over the globe. While we have scaled back out travels a bit, we still enjoy traveling with our kids. You can travel with a baby, toddler, or other young … Read entire article »

Britax B-Ready Stroller

Britax B-Ready Stroller

If you are like most moms you have probably tried out several strollers before finding the one that works for you.  You may even have multiple strollers to meet your needs for different adventures. I have two children, ages (almost) 5 and 2, and another baby on the way.  So, I have a single travel system, a double travel system, single umbrella, double umbrella, and a double jogger, which I rotate depending on where I am … Read entire article »

StrollAway by MetroTots: The Must-Have Space Saver for Your NYC Apartment

Being a mom-to-be in the city is certainly not without its challenges – not the least of which is finding a place to put all that cool urban baby gear that is slowly accumulating in my NY-sized apartment. Enter the StrollAway, an over-the-door stroller storage system invented by a mom (the best baby stuff is, right?) right here in NYC. I have to admit I was a little bit skeptical when I first received a review … Read entire article »

Blink and You’ll Love It

Blink and You’ll Love It

Not content to just innovate in producing safe, convenient car seats, Britax is turning its engineering genius towards making strollers. Since I’m a dedicated babywearer, a stroller has to be something special to get me excited about it and I really enjoy the Britax Blink Stroller. A priority for a compact stroller is its size. At 16 lbs, the Blink is not the lightest weight stroller on the market but it is light enough to carry in … Read entire article »

Getting Ready for Winter Weather

Getting Ready for Winter Weather

Today is the first day of fall, and the weather was perfect for a walk with Baby Mwah. I love taking him out for a stroll. It’s a great way for me to stay in shape and for baby to get some fresh air.  Since I love walking so much, I’m not looking forward to winter weather. My friends with toddlers and babies complain about the inconvenience of bundling their tots in multiple layers in order to run errands … Read entire article »

Britax Sale – Deal of the Day

When we started shopping for a convertible toddler car seat, we immediately decided on a Britax–the Britax Marathon.  Britax has some of the best safety ratings and highest weight limits on its comfortable and well-designed seats. Now we have a new Britax Boulevard CS.  I feel so comfortable knowing it has side-impact protection.  I’m also impressed with its convenience: you can adjust the headrest height without removing the seat. Even better, you just pull to tighten … Read entire article »

Ready to Roll

Ready to Roll

Shopping with baby can be more of a chore than a pleasure. While you might be able to use a sling for a quick trip to the mall, an extended shopping trip probably requires a stroller. The next time you are frustrated at the inconvenience of maneouvering baby’s stroller through closely-spaced racks of clothes and the difficulty of finding a working elevator take a deep breath and try to remember the biggest benefit of stroller shopping: at least you don’t have to carry your shopping bags. A stroller hanger is an indispensable … Read entire article »
