Celebrating Baby’s First Christmas with Babies “R” Us #BRUChristmas

BFC logo

This year celebrates McChub’s first Christmas.  While all Christmas’ are special in their very own way, this one is a very special Christmas, one that I want to sear into my memory and never to forget.  With McChub’s surprise arrival this year, he marked the completion of our family.  Every moment with him has been savored and cherished, with Christmas being no different.  I’m so excited for his first Christmas outfit, first picture with Santa, first ornament on the tree…the start of traditions and building of memories we will carry with us forever. Leading up to Christmas, Babies “R” Us […]

REVIEW: Your First Line of Defense in Child Safety with Safety 1st

48409-FS

4 kids later, each one so very different than each other and you can bet we’ve tried every safety product out there.  My oldest was the quickest to explore and eventually walk.  My second, had no fear of edges or falls.  My third was hospital-prone and by the last one, I am well prepared for anything, mostly in part to Safety 1st.  I have been using their time tested products from the very first child almost 10 years ago.  Which is why I am proud to be a Safety 1st Ambassador.   Products like their Grip ‘n Twist Door Knob […]

Review: Urbo, Steel Wonder

IMG_20131031_120044647_HDR

We love the Mamas and Papas Urbo stroller.  Not only is it a complete looker, it is as functional as it is stylish.  This is a stroller that really appeals to Dads, case in point, my husband who loves to push this pram around.  There is so much to love about the Urbo.  At first glance, what might surprise you is how incredibly light weight this stroller is.  The secret is the aluminum chassis which looks like really heavy steel, but isn’t.  Considering the amount of strollers I have road-tested, trust me when I say, this is a light-weight system […]

REVIEW: Nuna Zaaz (High) Chair

© SUZANNE M. CHAN 2012

To say that I have been hunting for the perfect high chair for the past 7 years is an understatement.  Obviously this is my personal opinion, but all the high chairs out there was always missing something.  Some were too modern, too cheesy, too cutesy, too bulky, too cheap looking.  I was appalled at some high chairs and their ridiculous prices tags when they failed to meet some of the most basic of needs. Yes there were some that I could definitely settle for… but the key word was SETTLE.  My husband is the only one who knows how much this […]

Photo Wall 1-2-3 with HP & Walmart! #WarmUpYourWalls

Our family has long ago outgrown our home.  We’ve been slowly searching for the perfect place to call home and to truly make our home.  Part of the fun of house hunting definitely has been checking out how people decorate their home.  I especially love gawking at how other families choose to display their family photos, my favorite being the photo walls.  I have to admit our current home has never truly felt like “our” home.  I tried to put some warm touches like photos hung in the playroom and makeshift photo wall on our staircase.  While they were nice […]

REVIEW: Ergo Xtra Baby Carrier

IMG_20130910_162440_937

The word on the street has the Ergo Carrier as being the “IT” carrier.  Always being more of a lover of clean lines and the modern, I identified the Ergo Carrier with the hippies.  I never had the urgency to try it as my first two weren’t much of carrier children.  The Little Miss did a stint in a sling, but generally they liked the stroller.  McChubbs often had to sit things out in his Mamaroo or Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker while I tended to the two other more active children.  He often cried to be held or just to […]
