*New Toyfinder App BabyLOVE makes Holiday Shopping Easy

If you can believe it, there are only 69 days left until Christmas and 52 days until Hanukkah. The clock is ticking and, even though I LOOOOOVE to shop, I’m getting a bit anxious on what on earth I’m going to get my son, nephews, nieces, neighbors, you name it. Every time you turn on the TV, some new commercial comes on promoting some toy that your kid instantly wants. Every web site has a … Read entire article »

GIFT GUIDE: New Baby, New Mama

GIFT GUIDE: New Baby, New Mama

I remember it all like it was yesterday: the Google searching, the book reading, the asking for recommendations, the dreaming of all the fancy pants items that celebrities have for their kids, as I cradled my baby bump and selected item after nonsensical item on my registry. My baby shower was just gorgeous and I was fortunate enough to receive TONS of stuff for my baby boy (the luckiest boy in the world). Fast Forward … Read entire article »

Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair is Perfect for Growing Children

Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair is Perfect for Growing Children

* I received the Stokke Tripp Trapp® Chair to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*   There comes a point where your little boy or girl simply outgrows their high chair, but they are still too small to sit in an adult sized chair at the table.  So we buy booster seats and pretty much try anything we can come up with to get them to a comfortable position to get them acquainted … Read entire article »

April Showers (of the Baby Variety)

Save on MAM Anti-Colic Baby Bottles

Save on MAM Anti-Colic Baby Bottles

MAM Anti-Colic bottles are a favorite of both breastfeeding moms and bottle-feeding moms. One of the main reasons is MAM’s unique “Silk Nipple.” This extra-soft nipple makes the switch between breast and bottle easier than using a traditional (harder) silicone nipple. While I was breastfeeding, I worried about nipple confusion even though I wanted my husband’s help with nighttime feedings. Thankfully, our baby was able to switch easily from bottle to breast using the MAM Anti-Colic bottle. We were … Read entire article »

What A Mom Wants: Personalized Pacifiers

What A Mom Wants: Personalized Pacifiers

I attend lots of baby showers. While I always purchase a gift from the mom-to-be’s registry, I also like to add an affordable yet personal gift that reflects my style. Pacifiers soothe cranky babies and may even reduce the risk of SIDS. Personalized pacifiers are a hot gift trend, but many parents may not know that “bling” on a pacifier could pose a choking hazard. MAM Personalized Pacifiers allow parents to safely create adorable customized MAM pacifiers. … Read entire article »

Bestever Baby Mats Make Cozy Best Friends

Bestever Baby Mats Make Cozy Best Friends

Bestever Baby Mats have a squee quotient that is off the charts. As if the tubby round bellies and sweet faces of the animal characters weren’t cute enough, the plush fabric is so floofy and cuddly that you’ll want to curl up and take a nap. My newborn son is enjoying running his fingers through his lion mat and his big brother and sister want one of their own–even the cats think the material feels as … Read entire article »
