Disney Love at the Art of Animation Resort

8323514571_377a70caf1_b

A while back we were invited to preview the Art of Animation Resort and while it was beautiful, we didn’t get a chance to experience first hand until this past December.  Boy was it amazing!  It’s hard to believe that this is considered a Disney Value Resort, with rooms starting at $118 per night, when you consider all they are offering. This themed resort is full of visual eye candy from their larger than life Cars displays to characters from both the Lion King, Finding Nemo and The Little Mermaid.  Your child will be totally enchanted from start to finish […]

REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: Quinny Yezz

quinny yezz_Side.jpg

Umbrella Strollers are pretty much all the same, minus a few details here and there.  Everyone always winds up with one at one point or another when you have kids.  Why?  Well it’s really one of the most practical things you’ll own as a parent.  There really isn’t much to ooh and ahh over except maybe the fabric choices… until now. Just in time for the busy summer travel season, I recently had the chance to check out the revolutionary Quinny Yezz.  It is truly the lightest compact stroller on the market, coming in at a teeny 11 pounds!  I […]

Baby’s Got Moves with Halo SleepSack Swaddle

sleepswaddle

As parents we all know the dangers of SIDS and putting baby “back to sleep” but it wasn’t until I was a postpartum nurse that I learned about an important condition called hip dyplasia.  It is something we routinely screen for immediately after birth, but a condition that can develop also with improper swaddling techniques.  Hip Dysplasia affects thousands of babies a year. Left undetected, it can cause hip arthritis and is the cause of over 10% of hip replacements in the U.S.  That is why I feel it is important to share with you this information provided by Dr. […]

This Mother’s Day Johnson & Johnson is celebrating the selfless and unconditional caring of caregivers, including moms, and all the ways they care for those they love.

Breastfeeding Confessionals

bravado_body_silk

Those who know me know calling me a breastfeeding advocate is an understatement.  For those who don’t know, full disclosure, I breastfed both my children for 2.5 years each and plan on breastfeeding my newborn for equally as long.  While my journey with breastfeeding wasn’t without its obstacles, I was so passionate about breastfeeding that I became a certified lactation counselor.  I am hoping to become IBCLC certified soon as well.  Part nuerotic, I was a pumping fiend and with each of my children I proudly donated over 3000 ounces of breast milk.  I truly enjoy supporting, sharing my own […]

REVIEW: Orbit Baby Stroller Travel System G2

photo

I received an Orbit Baby Stroller Travel System G2 for review purposes. No compensation was exchanged for this review. } I remember when I first laid eyes on this stroller years ago and thinking what an odd looking stroller.  Needless to say with #1 and #2 I went with different strollers although I wasn’t oblivious to the buzz around the Orbit.  It wasn’t until #3 and my review of countless strollers, that I really examined the Orbit Baby after a lot of nudging from my husband and a good friend.  I have to say I now understand the craze over […]
