Family Friday: Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic

It’s nice to see that Amazon is expanding the number of lines they make themselves and carry — and this one, Scout + Ro, is designed for little girls. They’ve got a ton of affordable pieces that are getting a lot of good reviews. This boat-neck tunic top comes in three different colors of stripes and has a really lovely Parisian/French vibe. It’s got a 4.4/5.0 rating from 30+ reviews and is $12.50 (with Prime and free returns). Scout + Ro Girls’ Striped Three-Quarter Sleeve Boat-Neck Tunic

How to Make Shots Easier on Your Kids

how to make shots easier on your kidsIt’s flu-shot time (hooray, said no one), and since that means it’s getting closer to peak flu season, which usually hits between December and February, today we’re discussing how to make shots easier on your kids. The CDC recommends that everyone older than six months get the seasonal flu vaccine and that certain children get two doses at least a month apart. The vaccine is especially important for kids because they have a higher risk than adults for serious flu-related complications that could land them in the hospital.

If your family gets the flu vaccine, get ready with these tips to make shots easier on your kids:

Organizing Thursday: Car Seat Travel Tray

When we booked a flight to visit relatives in England this summer, I wanted to find something that would stop my son’s Legos, crayons, food, etc., from falling off the tiny airplane tray table. I spent way too much time reading Amazon reviews, and this product was the closest to what I wanted — it has its own bag, a detachable strap (in case we wanted to use it in the car one day), and handy pockets. Most importantly, all four edges were high enough to keep things from rolling off. The trade-off was that there was no good way to actually attach it to the tray table (which was an option for a couple of others). I MacGyver-ed a solution, however, by adding two of these velcro straps to the bottom of the tray (using more velcro), which made it possible to secure the tray to the tray table by wrapping the straps around it and fastening them. I’m so glad we had this on our two 7-hour flights, and I would definitely recommend it (for road trips, too). Car Seat Travel Tray

Washable Wednesday: ‘New Flirt’ Ponte Knit Skirt

Nic + Zoe has a whole line of classic pieces, most of which are machine washable, but I have not seen this ponte knit skirt before. It’s highly rated, it’s got a hidden elastic waist, and it comes in sizes XS–XL. I would check it out if you’re looking for a nice, knee-length, pull-on, non-vented skirt, and I would trust the ponte to be a thick, substantial fabric that’s worth the $118 price (at Nordstrom). ‘New Flirt’ Ponte Knit Skirt

One machine washable option in plus sizes is from Vince Camuto.

Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: 3-Pack Classic Swaddling Cloths

Every mom gets these Aiden + Anais swaddling cloths — we still have them from our kids’ baby years. For what it’s worth, I never liked swaddling our kids in them because the SwaddleMe velcro system was much better for me — maybe my sleep-addled brain just couldn’t figure out how to do a little baby burrito. In general, we love Aiden + Anais — they make great stroller blankets and things like that, and my boys still sleep with their Dream Blankets. This “metallic gold deco” set (it also comes in silver deco) is so pretty — my kids are too big to swaddle now but I kind of want to get a set anyway! I can see these working for a boy or a girl (although, really, everything can work for a boy or a girl), and there are a bunch of other cute patterns. A set of three is $49.95 at Nordstrom. 3-Pack Classic Swaddling Cloths
