Hiking with your baby: what you need to know

Hiking as a family can be a really fun, rewarding and healthy activity. But if you’re a novice hiker, it’s important to spend some time preparing before bringing babies and kids out on the trail. Here are a few things you’ll want to think about before you set out for a hiking adventure with your baby. To select a site, ... Read More »

OXO Tot Sprout High Chair debuts

We’ve just received our first shipment of the new Sprout High Chair from OXO Tot, and there’s a lot to love about this chair. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I’m a huge fan of the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair. And while the Sprout doesn’t quite measure up to the iconic simplicity of the ...

Drool Sponsor Spotlight: in praise of Britax.

When our own Eli Gurock visited the Britax factory, every employee he met had the same thing to say about working for Britax: “Our job is protecting children. We keep children safe. That’s what we do.” It’s the Britax mantra: they keep children safe. And they take pride in doing it well. We asked some of our Facebook fans why ... Read More »

Orbit in living color

When I walked by the Orbit booth at the recent ABC Spring Conference in Ft. Worth, I didn’t even recognize it. Why? The colors threw me, I’ll admit. Orbit Baby has always had a very conservative palette — until now. The new Color Packs will be an optional accessory for the Orbit Stroller G2. They’ll come in nine fruity colors, ... Read More »

Painless potty training: readiness and chocolate

My two-and-a-half year old decided he was ready to be potty trained a few weeks ago. First he was curious to try the toilet, and would go on occasion. Then he started waking up in the mornings with a dry diaper. One morning, I convinced him to wear underpants to school, and that was basically that. He was “ready.” I’d ... Read More »

Why the Cybex Aton changes everything

OK, fine. It won’t change everything. But it’s going to have a huge impact on the infant car seat market. And it’s going to make the lives of countless parents much, much easier. So that counts for something, if not everything. We’ve been keeping a close eye on the Cybex Aton since we first saw it more than two years ... Read More »

Bugaboo Bee looks good in denim

I’ve noticed something recently. Whenever I meet other parents who, like me, own a Bugaboo Bee, before any words are exchanged, there’s always the same knowing look, a glance that says, “Yes, this stroller is amazing – why don’t more people know about it?” It’s easy to miss the Bee. In general, mid-size strollers are not a very popular category ... Read More »

Stokke PramPack: a safer voyage for strollers

The first time we flew with a stroller, it came off the plane broken. I was in LA for a wedding, and I remember frantically canvassing the shops in Beverly Hills to find a replacement — and this was before babies were a must-have celebrity accessory. The first time I flew with a double stroller, we nearly missed our connecting ... Read More »

Dyson @ Stroller Cleaning Night #1

We know that strollers get dirty, especially over the winter. The chaos that inevitably comes with expanding a family combined with the unpredictable New England weather ensures that the pristine stroller our customers walk out with will not be sparkly by spring. So last night, we kicked off our first in a series of stroller cleaning nights in our Brookline ... Read More »
