M1 Carrier is A1

If you’ve read my previous post, you already know how the M1 Carrier came into existence. If not, all you need to know is this: it was designed from the ground up to be better than the Baby Björn. At first glance, you might actually mistake the M1 for a Björn, but there are several features that set it apart. ... Read More »

Carry on and on and on

This post started out as a review of the new M1 baby carrier from Lascal, the company that brought us the Buggy Board and Kiddy Board, in partnership with Regal Lager, the venerable US distributor of, among others, Lascal and Phil and Teds, and who also distrubuted Baby Björn for 14 years until that relationship came to an end in ...

Signo update

Just heard from Recaro that the first shipment of Signo seats are set to arrive in the US on November 15th. I’ll keep you posted… Read More »

So that one’s Ted?

Sometimes it’s the little things that make me so happy. Like this brilliant accessory to the Phil & Teds stroller line. The Lazy Ted is basically a metal base for the Doubles Kit seat of the Phil & Teds (the one that clicks on to the back of the stroller) that turns the seat into an infant rocker. I love ...

Non-scents

Little Twig has come out with a new line of extra mild, unscented bath and body products for babies and kids. They’ve got a body wash, bubble bath, bodymilk and diaper cream, all of which are organic and 100% natural, like all of the Little Twig products, but without the scented essential oils. They’re great for anyone with sensitive skin ... Read More »

Fuzzy Wuzzies

Check out these amazing hats, called Wuzzies. Each one is knitted by hand and lined with soft fleece for plenty of warmth without any itchies. The designs are fun, funky and each one is one-of-a-kind. And the best part is, the idea was born at Magic Beans. Two of our talented employees, Skye and Mary Kate, who both recently graduated ...

Your binky, your friend

This idea was hatched on a family vacation in 1998. The Schneider family was away with their 3-month old baby, and they were tired and cranky from constantly needing to wake up throughout the night to reposition the baby’s pacifier. Legend has it a desperate Mama Schneider used a hotel sewing kit to affix the pacifier to a stuffed animal ... Read More »

Finding Sitters Fast

This is a hoot. I’m a member of SitterCity.com, a site that helps parents find babysitters. I’ve had very good luck, actually, but now SitterCity has come up with a new way for parents to scope out the sitter situation. On Wednesday October 3rd, SitterCity is offering a free SpeedSitting event in Boston at Faneiul Hall. What is SpeedSitting, you ... Read More »

Skip Hop Props

OK, yes, several weeks have passed since the ABC show, and I’m still playing catch up. I’m carrying around a Stokke tote bag filled with press kits and catalogs and notes on a bunch of vendors and items I still haven’t gotten to. It’s frustrating, but I’m chipping away. Today, I’m tackling Skip Hop. Famous now for their simple yet ... Read More »

Swaddle down under

Swaddling saved my sanity with my second child, so it is a topic near and dear to my heart. For months, the only way she would fall asleep was if we swaddled her up tight, straightjacket style, and literally jumped up and down with her in our arms. By the time she outgrew swaddling, I was an expert. I could ... Read More »
