#GIVEAWAY: Celebrating the Boob with Dr Brown’s

breastfeeding-accessories-Gia-pillow

If you don’t know already, I’m a LACTIVIST, loud and proud, I’ve fed two of my children for 2.5+ years each and plan on doing so with my third.  So far we are almost 4 months in (that’s my lil guy to the right in a milk coma!) and my little preemie is just thriving on good ol’ breastmilk  — nectar of the Gods I say!  Not just as a labor and delivery nurse, but as a mother too, I’m not blind to the many challenges that breastfeeding can bring.  Images of babies perfectly latched on from day one and […]

Kids says the Darnedest things!  So many times I’ve said I wanted to record a moment and then the moment has past.  Recently inspired by a book I got for my daughter, Q & A a Day for Kids: A Three-Year Journal, I was so excited for the Children’s Place Win $10,000 in their Cash for Class contest!  Imagine winning $10,000 for simply capturing a memorable moment?! The Children’s PLACE has teamed up with Parents and their Family Fun magazine to celebrate back to school with an exclusive sweepstakes.

REVIEW: Britax Frontier 90 Booster Seat

Frontier 90

Britax is always surprising me with their most intuitive innovations.  They have become the brand I trust the safety of my children to.  Their newest Harness to Booster seat, the BRITAX FRONTIER™90 does not disappoint.  With the recent findings that Latch installation systems have a maximum weight limit, Britax comes to the market with an innovative and yet simple solution called their ClickTight™ Installation. When I say it’s simple, it really couldn’t be any easier.  You simply place the seat into position, pop open the seat opening, thread your seat belt through.  Remove any slack and simply close the seat.  With the […]

Here Come the Bugs!

July19_Bugs_Infograph

    One of the biggest dislikes about NYC summers is the bugs… the gnats, those swarms of tiny little bugs, and those pesky little mosquitoes that like to bite… NOT MY FRIEND. I just learned that not all topical pain relievers are equal.  It’s important to make sure you’re choosing the RIGHT one for you and each member of your family.  In addition to the above infographic, it’s important to make sure not to get it in your eyes too… About Suzanne ChanSuzanne is student, daughter, wife, (labor & delivery) certified registered nurse, certified lactation counselor, friend, entrepreneur and […]

REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: Safety 1st Advance 70 Air+

safety1st

Car seat safety is most important and yet one that many over look.  The facts speak for themselves.  More than 50% of car seats are improperly installed, 40% of carseats checked during a recent Safety 1st car seat check at the Indy 500 Community Day were either expired or recalled — putting your child at risk! I love learning about new car seats and all the new technology being put into them to keep my children safe.  We were early owners of the original Safety 1st Air Protect car seat and I’m thrilled to introduce you to the Safety 1st […]

Stokke Chic with the Stokke Crusi & #Giveaway

IMG_20130714_173130_833

My love of strollers is widely known… obsessed!  It’s all about the quest for the perfect stroller for each family.  I say each family because really the day to day stroller is different than the jogging stroller, than the commuter stroller, than the double stroller and what you need from your stroller is different than what I need.  Following the huge success of the Stokke Xplory, Stokke introduces the Stokke Crusi.  The standout thing about the Stokke Crusi is that it is a multi-function stroller, while it took a little for me to realize, for my family, it’s just what […]
