Dear Santa, All I Want for Christmas Is..

1. A sippy cup that doesn’t leak. But it can’t be too hard to drink from either. Oh, and it can’t get smelly. It also needs to have a lid without any parts or straws and it has to be made from safe, non-toxic materials. One last thing- if it could be free of any Dora or Disney motifs that would be great.

2. A double stroller that doesn’t weigh a million pounds, has a huge undercarriage, fully reclines in both seats, has massive sunshades, a parent console, a one-hand fold, stands upright when collapsed, fits in my trunk, has an easy to operate brake, can be steered with one hand, navigates the doctor’s office and the mall like a ninja, tires that don’t deflate overnight, and looks cool. Is that too much to ask?

3. A highchair that is compact, a breeze to clean, easy on the eyes, tall enough for my bar-height countertop, and it can’t cost a million dollars either. Got it?

4. An infant seat that isn’t awkward to carry. I know there are some that have those groovy handles that make it appear to be easier, but it’s a sham. My. Back. Can’t. Take. It. Anymore.

5. And finally, a baby monitor. This one sounds simple, but it’s not. It needs to have the clearest of sound, a mile long range, movement and breath detection, night vision, lullabies, white noise, a temperature reading, at least two bases and two parent units, two-way chat, a night light, be battery operated on both ends, and compact. Good luck with that one.

Lots of Love,


Moms- What are you hoping Santa brings you this holiday season?

#2 sounds like the Britax B Ready (but it could be a bit lighter lol)


I would love a monitor that doesn’t beep or get any feedback. Great list


Have you ever tried the Nalgene sippy cups? You can find them on Amazon and they meet most of your criteria (just one little valve)! I love them!


A double jogging stroller that can be used for light running and not as wide as a double BOB and o can actually lift it


For #3 check out the Joovy Nook. It fits all of your criteria.
