Daddy doesn’t need a diaper bag anymore

The new Dad Gear Diaper Vest has finally arrived. This was one of my favorite items at the ABC Show in Las Vegas, where I dragged my dubious husband a half-mile through the convention center to try it on. But he loved it, and I think he won’t be alone. Dad Gear is a brand new company, but the Diaper ... Read More »

Hot Slings for Cold Days

For about a year now, we’ve been fortunate to be a reseller for the fabulous Kangaroo Korner fleece pouches. I am an avid fan of these, both for their comfort and their ease of use, so I was really sad when I found out that their availability would be extremely limited this winter. My understanding is that business has been ... Read More »

A devilishly good diaper bag

When Dante Pauwels first offered to send me a sample of her Dante Beatrix diaper bags, I wasn’t sure what to expect. We already had a lot of diaper bags in the store, and I didn’t think we needed any more. But when the sample arrived, I desperately wanted to keep it. It was so chic and beautiful, filled with ...

Built for babies!

No, you’re not imagining it. Babies are really in right now. There are so many smart, new products on the market designed to make life easier (and more chic) for parents. Take, for example, the new baby line from Built NY, a company that made a splash with their BYOBag, a neoprene bag perfectly sized for a wine bottle (or ... Read More »

Under Wraps

There are lots of ways to wear your baby, from the sleek and popular Baby Bjorn to a range of lesser-known slings, pouches and wraps. Styles run the gamut, from earth mother to hot mama, but any way you wear your baby, you’ll enjoy many benefits, including (but not limited to) precious bonding time and free hands. I have personally ... Read More »

Freezing your Bjorn off?

As temperatures continue to drop here in New England, we’re coming to grips with the notion that winter is upon us. One consequence of the cooler weather is bulky outerwear, and cramming a bundled-up baby into a Baby Bjorn is not fun for anyone involved. But necessity is the mother of invention, which explains why a local mom invented an ... Read More »

Travel Advisory: GoGo Kidz

Flying with little babies is pretty easy. Take the infant car seat and a wheeled carrier frame and you’re good to go. But once the baby has outgrown the infant seat, airline travel gets bleaker and parents become pack mules. The car seat is a big problem. It’s big and heavy and you don’t really have any place to put ... Read More »

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 »
