Wordless Wednesday: I’m a Big Brother now!

Fireman Marcus

WORDLESS WEDNESDAY indeed… have I ever been WORDLESS in my life? As you may have known, Marcus, my little shadow, has been having a hard time adjusting to having a new little brother. Thanks to my friend Courtney and her father, we had an outing with just him and his parents to see where Fireman Bill works. (He LOVES Fireman Sam.) He was one super happy kid. — at North Massapequa Fire Department Headquarters.   About Suzanne ChanSuzanne is student, daughter, wife, (labor & delivery) certified registered nurse, certified lactation counselor, friend, entrepreneur and blogger – but the job she’s most proud of is […]

Stride Rite Goes Bold this Fall

We’re loving what Stride Rite, the name synonymous with quality children’s shoes, has in store for fall! As guests of MomTrends and StrideRite at their debut at the Petit Parade NY Kids Fashion Week, we had a chance to check out the future of Stride Rite and boy oh boy… does it look BRIGHT!  I’ve gone to fashion shows before but this was my first kid’s fashion show and it was just too cute!  These kids had such personality and really rocked the runway showing off the latest from Stride Rite. You can always count on Stride Rite to put your child’s […]

A Little Pixie Dust by Disney Paint #DisneyPaintMom

photo

With Baby #3 on the way, there was a lot of anxiety among the children about this big addition to their lives.  We wanted to find a way to make each child feel special in their own way and know that they were very loved.  My little princess, unbeknownst to her, was truly going to be our little princess as Baby #3 is another boy.  This year she started kindergarten, where her formal education begins.  She had been asking for a desk to do her homework at and we thought this was a great opportunity for us to re-paint her […]

NURSING 101 : The Right Breastpump at Every Price Point

affinitypro

Have you heard?!  I just gave birth this past Monday and as I am slowly getting back on my feet, I thought this post was highly appropriate given the challenges I’ve struggled with this week with a preemie. Enjoy and I hope to be back posting real soon! As many of you know I am a huge lactivist.  Having breastfed both my children for a combined total of over 5+ years, I had seen the health benefits of breastfeeding first hand and have navigating every breastfeeding issue from mastitis to having the flu while breastfeeding, to low supply, and my […]

ALLERGY DIARIES: Easter Heartbreak

photo

35 weeks and counting, 8 weeks of bed rest – We’re in the home stretch!  Despite my mobility being more and more limited as each week passes,today was Easter.  A holiday that had little significance to me as a child is now a special tradition I look forward to each year with my children thanks to my Aunt.  My kids love my Aunt and all the specialness that is her.  The kids were giddy for Easter at her house and knew they were always in for a treat. As you all know, Marcus’ allergies are quite severe.  Up until recently […]

SPOTTED: All New Britax Frontier 90 & Pinnacle 90

Pinnacle 90

Maybe its because I’m expecting Baby #3 any day now but boy oh boy can new baby gear get me excited!  This time it’s from one of my favorite go-to brands Britax.  Today they introduced their most innovative Harness-2-Booster Seats, the BRITAX FRONTIER™90 and PINNACLE™90 with ClickTight™ technology which installs safely, securely and easily every time.  If you recall the “85” in the Frontier 85 meant the weight capacity for the seat was 85 lbs in harness mode, the same goes for the Frontier 90 and Pinnacle 90 with the “90” meaning the new weight limit for these seats in the harness […]

REVIEW: 4moms mamaRoo

IMG_0755

The 4moms mamaRoo is definitely one of its kind, some might even say revolutionary.  Not just by looks but in almost every aspect of its design.  With thousands of moms singing it’s praise, you know I had to check it out.  First things first, It’s so much more than a bouncer or a swing, and you can’t compare it to any bouncer or swing without them all falling (very) short.  So when asked if it’s worth the $200+ price tag, many would swear yes, especially since many swings aren’t much cheaper and well… only swing. Our (2) little testers and […]
