I tried a few different baby carriers when my son was an infant, and this is the one that stuck.
If you need to closely monitor your baby’s weight and/or how much milk she’s getting when she nurses (or you simply like to keep close tabs), this combination changing pad/scale is really handy.
A nice alternative to a boring plastic box, this white noise machine has eight options for sounds and is machine washable when the electronic portion is removed.
Clipping your baby’s nails can be difficult and pretty nerve-wracking — but these clippers make it a little easier.
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.

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.

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but we looooooved these blankets for our littles. By which I mean they loved them so much that we had to get multiples for each kiddo. They’re like the muslin swaddles in that they get softer and softer as you wash them — but they’re four layers of puffy … Read More about Postpartum Tuesday: Classic Dream Blanket

For J, I think it was 4–8 months, whereas H was pretty much done with it at 3 months. Ladies, if you don’t know this, the newer ones … Read More about Postpartum Tuesday: Rock ‘n Play Sleeper with SmartConnect
For those of you who are still in the stroller years, what are your favorite consoles?
