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 »

Quinny Zapp Xtra sparkles

Way back when we were first getting started with Magic Beans, Quinny was this European enigma. Their strollers weren’t available in the USA, so we could only ogle the pictures we saw from overseas and wonder if they were as good as they looked. They eventually crossed the pond, and Quinny has been steadily tweaking their designs to appeal to ... Read More »

Your baby longs to be close to you… in a Moby Wrap!

Your baby, being rather new to the world, has a short list of priorities. She’d like to be fed regularly, and even sooner than “ASAP”. She’d like to stay warm and dry. And most of all, she longs to be close to you (or another big warm person). Snuggling up close to a heartbeat keeps her happy, calm, and dozy. ... Read More »

Orbit Baby car seats put on a few pounds

But not from extra calories (and they aren’t any heavier, either). Through some additional testing, Orbit Baby was able to raise the weight and height limits on both their Orbit Baby Infant Car Seat and their Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat. The Infant Car Seat is now rated for 4-30 lbs and 19-32″ tall, where previously the limit was 22 ... Read More »

Chewbeads to the rescue

My mother’s jewelry has always mesmerized me. As a baby, even the simplest earrings or rings made my eyes sparkle. A few years back, my mom confessed that while she loves me very much, this girlhood fascination of mine was nothing short of a nuisance. She’d lovingly hold me in her arms and I, in turn, would tug at her ... Read More »

The Nook Pebble Lite Is Here!

The original Nook Pebble crib mattress is an obvious object of product lust: it’s unique-looking, and it uses nano-level waterproofing to keep moisture out – how cool is that? Plus, it’s engineered for optimal breathing while babies sleep, and it’s completely chemical-free. You may have experienced a bit of sticker-shock when you first spotted the Nook Pebble – this kind ... Read More »

No more nursing

I never expected to nurse my son for two and a half years. Both my daughters lost interest by around 18 months, and I figured he’d follow suit. But 18 months came and went and he was still interested. Very interested. His first three-word sentence was “Nurse other side!” As time went on, his enthusiasm never waned. Nursing a verbal ...

2011 BOB Revolution SE has arrived

You just don’t mess with success. This was the first thing I thought when I saw a sample of the newly redesigned BOB Revolution stroller more than a year ago. Sure, there’s always room for improvement, but they had such a good thing going. The Revolution stroller has been a rock-solid performer and a parent-favorite for years. Why tinker with ...
