Pack it up, pack it in with Hamster Buggy Bags

hamsterbags

Usually when I take the stroller out, I like to shop. While I might shop very quickly when I’m with the kids,  the fact is…I don’t want to be making another trip to the mall with them anytime soon. It’s not a pleasant shopping experience to begin with as they have very little patience for… Read More

Spring gardening for kids

41NasXQBRIL._SL500_AA300_

With Earth Day right around the corner, it’s time to get the spring garden in order and of course, the kids want to help. What’s better than digging in dirt, making mud and putting seeds in the ground?! So while you’re getting knee-deep in dirt and bugs, let the kids have their own fun too… Read More

Tummy time just got more fun (and anatomical correct) with Biddy Belly!

giraffeluke

Oh, how babies hate tummy time. Or perhaps your baby loves tummy time…or loves to hate tummy time. Either way, it’s a must-do for babies and my own little one is reaching that tummy time point. She likes it for a few minutes and then…WAH!! And so the story goes…but think about it pushing yourself… Read More

The art of swaddling with Aura Weavers

aura

Every parent believes their baby is perfect. They are so tiny, so precious and so dependent on you for love and warmth. You also know that your baby is unique — one of a kind, which is why you wouldn’t and shouldn’t swaddle them in anything other than a one-of-a-kind muslin blanket. Here’s the thing…you… Read More

Babywearing made easy with the Belle Baby Carrier

bella_home

I must admit…I’ve never been much of a babywearer with either of my first two kids. With the first one, I much preferred to hold her in my arms then wear her on my chest…simply because I could. With the second one, he just got so big so fast that it was just too uncomfortable… Read More

We love crafts in our house. It doesn’t matter if it’s a big holiday or a little holiday, we always find a craft to do. However, there are only so many crafts one can keep! The other day my daughter caught me throwing away some winter-themed crafts we did back in January and the way… Read More

It’s always fun to make a holiday as special as it can be for your kids. Their little faces just light up at the slightest effort you give for making their day special and fun. It could be a special breakfast, perhaps just a note and a special cookie in their lunch box or a… Read More

Going a little stir crazy inside? Try these fun indoor BALL games for entertainment!

boy_ball

Has school called another snow day? Perhaps they’re already bored with the new toys they’ve gotten over the holidays? Whatever the reason may be, I know how it is to be trapped inside with two kids that have endless energy and the weather outside is frightful. So last week, we decided to pick-up a ball… Read More

Snowy day gear you’ll adore (and it’s on sale)!

Ugh, the winter weather has finally caught up with us. It’s all snow, rain and wind out there and all we have to wear is last year’s snow onesie that is clearly too small. I don’t know about you but my kids are growing like weeds and it seems even though I try and plan… Read More

Don’t forget the babysitter this holiday season!

WBRU3509_680

Next to my three kids, the babysitter is the fourth most important person on my shopping list right now. WHY? Because day-in-and-day-out she helps me maintain my sanity, my daily routine and has been a huge help in adjusting to life as a mom of three. She has become my third and fourth arm and… Read More

The Simplisse Double Electric Breastpump — my new best friend!

es-015_1

Breastfeeding is hard work. You forget about how much time it takes, how important it is to get the right latch so you don’t get sore nipples and that the more you feed or pump the more you’ll increase your milk supply. It takes a lot of time and patience. Unfortunately, my five-year-old and almost… Read More

Holiday countdown crazy!

Craft_Advent_0811 2208

I’m probably not the only one that is totally freaked out come Black Friday that, unfortunately, there is so much left to do on my holiday list. Cards to order (note to self…must take photos FIRST), cookies to bake, presents to buy and wrap, holiday parties to throw and attend…the list is endless and before… Read More

Time to start thinking about those holiday cards…!

MIN-23H-HYC-001_A_PD

It’s the happiest time of the year, right?? Well, for some. For others it’s more like a sprint to the finish line…presents to buy and wrap, the house to clean and decorate, packages to mail, cookies to be made, parties to throw and attend…oh, and those annual family photos and holiday cards to get mailed… Read More

I don’t know about you but in my house, we’re always ready for a Pajama Party! There’s something that is so FUN and so iconic of the fall and winter seasons about kids lounging around in the PJs, drinking hot chocolate, eating popcorn and watching a holiday movie. It’s like a scene from your favorite… Read More

Cold weather accessories for your stroller!

If you live on the eastern half of the country, you know that this last week has brought an early winter and that there’s no avoiding the rain, sleet and snow that will be coming your way. The sunny days have given way to a cold front and it’s time to outfit those strollers for… Read More

Swaddle, swaddle, swaddle!

pTRU1-6474838reg

Technically Baby #3 can come at any time. I’m only 16 days away from my due date and still have tons of things to do. One of the things on my growing (and never ending…) to-do list is to practice my 2 a.m. swaddle. With the first baby the nurses in the hospital were so… Read More

AAP issues new guidelines for safe infant sleeping

alphabetzoo_image

I know it seems everyday the news is telling you something different when it comes to keeping your kids and babies safe. However, it’s all for good reason. There’s always the off chance that you could be in that 1 percent category where something could go wrong. Just last week the American Academy of Pediatrics… Read More

Just last week my doctor told me it could be any day now that Baby #3 makes their way into this world. At this point, we’re still not ready…but really, are you ever?! However I decided it was time to start making a list and checking it twice about what I needed and wanted (because… Read More

What’s in a name?

baby-name-regret-sm250

After you find out what you’re having the next question on people’s minds is, “do you have a name yet?” I’m a huge fan of the Jewish tradition of keeping the name on the down-low until the traditional baby naming ceremony. However we’re not Jewish so there won’t be any grand revealing but on the… Read More
