Big thanks to KIDS ‘N’ PETS for sponsoring today’s post and teaching us a thing or two about removing pee smells and stains from mattresses and carpet. Before parenthood, the idea of pee anywhere was totally disgusting. It evoked public bathrooms behind gas stations. You know, the kind that smell strongly enough to make you gag. About […]

Stuff people send us plus a whole lot of things we just love and can’t help but recommend.
This post is sponsored by Philips Avent in support of the Philips Avent Anti-colic BPA-free Bottle. All thoughts and opinions are my own. As an exclusive formula-feeding mama, I was excited that Philips AVENT released its Anti-colic bottles in time for my baby to test it out. My second son has been very colicky in his […]
This post was sponsored by Playtex Baby. All opinions, experiences, and photos are my own. When the Playtex brand asked for real moms to review the new Diaper Genie Expressions diaper pail, Whitney and Heather knew that with two little dudes in diapers, I would not only be excited to try a new Diaper Genie […]
Aimed to attract girls to play patterns that encourage building and problem solving, the stuff engineering is made of, new toy brand Goldiebox came to market about a year ago. I watched the Kickstarter video in 2012 and loved the idea. CEO Debbie Sterling is a young engineer from Stanford who wants to disrupt the […]
Nursing breasts are hardworking and need support not to mention easy- and frequent-access. Unfortunately, it seems like these two criteria are often at odds. Here are 3 I like.
You know what a lot of people do about two years after they have a baby? They have another one. Is this — or was this — your plan? Making siblings is powerful stuff. Before Scarlett was born, I took a little class helping toddlers prepare for a new sibling. The instructor shared a book […]
I guess it’s technically called BabyBjorn Cover for Baby Carrier and not a Cape, but I need to recommend this nice-to-have number for the following real-life situations that I encountered while toting my baby in his carrier: Nap = worth weight in gold. I’m at Studio Grow or Music Class with the big one and […]
I love me a BOB stroller. I have bought one, been gifted one, and even received one from the BOB team. Hmm, maybe I woulda saved the money if I knew they were going to send me one, but let’s talk about the stroller I love. My husband and I — well, mostly him — […]
At seven months old, Sawyer is eating and drinking whatever he can get his mouth on. Still nursing but also bottle-feeding, spoon-feeding, and dabbling in finger food. And, as always, I have some very strong opinions! I have a whole new arsenal of baby feeding products in rotation so wanted to share a few of […]
I had heard about the Dunstan Baby Language as “the woman who speaks baby talk on Oprah” several years ago. It sounded like a brilliant idea, but without my own crying baby, there wasn’t much opportunity — or drive — to test it. I flirted with the idea of buying the DVDs a few times […]
This review of the Maclaren Twin Techno was written by one of my dearest friends, Ella. She also wrote apartment life with newborn twins. As the mother of 7.5-month old twins, I learned more about double strollers than I ever would have imagined. After my extensive research, we landed on two strollers. We have been […]
Yes, you deserve a beautiful (dare I say “sexy”?) nursing bra that makes you remember you’re a curvy woman and not a cow. The thoughtful people at Cake Lingerie sent me the one below, called Licorice, and I love it. Cake Nursing Bras are beautifully designed and I’m consistently impressed. The good: The bra is […]
