Let it shine

This isn’t quite as hot off the presses as some of the other products I’ve covered, but I’m a huge fan, so I thought I’d spread the love. The Light Night is a completely unique design that is wireless, rechargable and incredibly durable. Let it charge on the included base all day, and it will shine all night long, night ...

The newest essential

Way back in 2002, when I had my first daughter, the diaper bag renaissance was still about a year away. My well-meaning husband bought me a Kate Spade diaper bag that unbelievably had no pockets, and my well-meaning mother bought me a Graco diaper bag in the campy French Bears pattern (to match my travel system). The outlook was pretty ... Read More »

Double the fun

Well, well, well. Look who just joined the party. After seeing a steady rise in popularity with the e3 single buggy, we’ve just received our first shipment of the new e3 Twin. The body style is reminiscent of the Mountain Buggy Urban Double or the Valco Twin Runabout, with two front swivel wheels. It pushes beautifully and looks sharp, with ... Read More »

Nest-ing

As urban parents embrace the new trend towards high-design baby gear, the bar keeps getting raised. The newest kid on the block? Mozzee’s NEST, a minimalist, convertable high chair that is easy to use, easy to clean and pretty easy on the eyes, too. This was the intent, as it turns out. Designed by Australian architect Sally Dominguez, the NEST ... Read More »

Grand Paws

Last winter, we had so many people ask us for good, baby-sized mittens, so when I passed by the Bear Hands booth at the ABC Show in Las Vegas I got pretty excited. I may have even jumped up and down – it’s possible. These mittens are absolutely awesome – the perfect blend of fun and functional. We’ve had them ... Read More »

Even when they’re eating?

Always Learning is an acclaimed line of baby feeding products from the U.K. that has finally made it’s way to our side of the ocean. Each product is designed to engage little eaters through inventive use of ... Read More »

i’coo Update

I’ve had a chance to spend some time with the Pico 4, and I wanted to share some impressions. First of all, it’s definitely a sweet looking ride. We’ve received it in four colors, Navy, Blue-Green, Pink-Orange, and Brown-Orange. All colors are nice — rich and warm. Assembly was a piece of cake; it came out of the box basically ... Read More »

Thin Air?

At the most recent baby gear show in September, we noticed that Baby Bjorn was debuting their newest carrier. The enormous replica hanging from the ceiling was a clue. Big change from May, when we were ushered through a hidden door for a sneak preview of this mesh wonder; though both tactics seem to support the idea that our friends ... Read More »

The i’coo has landed

About a year ago, we were getting all pumped up for our first shipment of the formidable i’coo Pico 4, a stroller so cool looking, it will actually stop you in your tracks. But the US distributors bagged their plans, and we mourned and eventually accepted that the Pico wasn’t destined for these shores. Then, the manufacturer of the new ... Read More »

Spare me!

Baby Sparewear is a personal favorite of mine; I’ve loved it from the first moment I saw it, literally. It’s an extra outfit that you keep in your diaper bag in case of a diaper disaster, juice box explosion or other catastrophic outfit incident. The three-piece set includes a pair of pants, a short-sleeve t-shirt and a long-sleeve t-shirt.Now, if ... Read More »
