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 […]

Ergobaby Swaddler Love

IMG_20130715_213733_456

Ergobaby already has a cult following.  Devotees devoted to their carriers.  So it doesn’t surprise me that the amazing people at Ergobaby have done it again.  They made an already useful product even better!  Don’t you just love when that happens?  This time with the Ergobaby Swaddler.  It has become my new addiction.  The newest addition to the Chan family, my little McChubs always seems to startle himself awake.  We noticed he slept best when swaddled, but he had become, along with the chubs, strong enough to get out of my labor & delivery nurse tight swaddles, often wiggling the […]

GIVEAWAY: Surviving the (work) day.

122Black-Aida_Pregnant_WB

It hasn’t been easy coming back to work 8 weeks after having baby. Everyone has been too kind telling me how great I look after having baby #3.  My standard line is “sleep deprivation, starvation will do all sorts of things.”  Yes things, including that sick to my stomach exhaustion, inability to focus, wit and smarts that are always a few behind.  Feeling like I am running on fumes, with mood swings that will make you dizzy — don’t ask about the missed night feedings, I may have an aneurism telling you the story. To do lists that keep getting […]

REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: Baby Announcements from Tiny Prints

announce

It always amazes me how much things can change from one child to another.  Even the little things like all the options available now for printing of Baby Announcements.  I remember how impressed I was the first time I shopped Tiny Prints for Holiday cards back in 2008.  I received so many compliments on the card and not just because my adorable Ava’s mug was on it. When Shutterfly merged with Tiny Prints in April 2011, it brought together two of my favorite brands.  I am a huge fan of Shutterfly’s photobooks.  I make a family one every year, and […]

REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY: Quinny Yezz

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 […]

Sleep Tight my Little Itty Bitty with Delta Children

simmons for delta children - adele crib

One of the rites of passage when you find out you’re having a baby is the design of the nursery.  One thing, in the overall frenzy of designing the perfect nursery for your new baby, that people often initially forget to consider is safety.  Many people will choose the look of a crib or trust that a higher price tag means that their baby is sleeping in a safe crib.   I admit I was one of those who neglected to consider overall crib safety when choosing a crib for the Little Miss.  I remember being so focused on her […]

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. […]

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 […]
