This boot is a perfect solution for toddlers who don’t exactly sit patiently while you try to get them into their winter gear — it has a zipper on the side!
Whether you’re supplementing with formula or exclusively formula feeding (or whether that’s still TBD!), April highly recommends this mixing pitcher.
Pottery Barn has a new (or maybe only new to me?) category called “Modern Baby,” which features baby furniture and decor — but sleeker, updated, and, well, modern. They have some beautiful pieces that I would honestly love to furnish an adult bedroom with! I’m not in the market to re-furnish my son’s room, but … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Organic Striped Geo Crib Fitted Sheet
I found out about this baby seat from a mom in a Facebook group I am in. This one mom posted about it and the rest of us fell like dominos and we all bought it too. I really loved this seat and was so sad when my son outgrew it. This was the first … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat
These crayons are a very cool idea for a party favor, gift, or stocking stuffer. Kids love things that are personalized with their names (heck, I still do) and obviously love coloring with crayons. I think these are particularly cool because they look tie-dyed and contain several colors within each letter. I like how they … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Rainbow Name Crayons
I am going to put it mildly when I say it is very difficult to soothe a teething baby. They’re cranky, uncomfortable, and may have other symptoms concurrently as well. Like almost all babies, when my son was teething he chewed on anything he could get his hands on. The most frustrating part of a … Read More about Family & Weekend Friday: Munch Mitt Teether
This is a really fun lawn/beach game for older kids and adults. My husband is always trying to recruit people to play with him, and this past summer I successfully avoided getting my butt out of my beach chair to play. (It’s a fun game, but I am more of a book-reading beachgoer.) I would … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Spikeball
When my husband and I first moved in together, I noticed that there was loose change EVERYWHERE. He would come home from being out, and empty his pockets on any and every flat surface in our apartment. Or (and I only found this out by witnessing it myself), he would take his pants off, fold … Read More about Organizing Thursday: Woodland Park™ Elephant Bank
When my son was a few weeks old, he had a lot of bumps on his face that my mother-in-law called baby acne. They didn’t seem to cause him any discomfort, but they definitely made me rethink the pure, unblemished baby skin idea. We had the pediatrician look at it and found out it was … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Foam Shampoo for Newborns
Now that the weather is turning cooler, the kiddie germs are about to descend upon us. Last winter was my son’s first winter in daycare, and I don’t think I worked a full week from November to March. Almost everything he had was viral, and much of it was congestion in his nose/chest/ears. One of … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier
I recently bought a set of these magnets as an impulse purchase at Marshalls. My son loved them so much that I bought this set in addition. They’re brightly colored, easy to grab, and there’s a lot of them in the box. We recently had to replace our refrigerator (ugh), and luckily these magnets don’t … Read More about Weekend & Family Friday: Wooden Vehicle Magnets in a Box
The newborn baby phase is totally disorienting, to say the least. You don’t know if you’re feeding the baby right, or enough, or at the right times; you’re tired; and your hormones are going crazy. For me, that manifested in a lot of anxiety around feeding, weight gain, and dirty-diaper counting… night under the jaundice … Read More about Nursing/Postpartum Tuesday: Glow Baby Newborn Tracker App
