Gearing up for the grandkids

I’m a long way off from experiencing it for myself, but I’ve heard it’s pretty amazing to be a grandparent.

Orbit G2 available for preview and preorder

We’re big Orbit Baby fans around here, so we were psyched when Orbit invited us to participate in the pre-launch of their new G2 Infant System and Stroller.

Here Come the Hammocks

What’s the latest trend in the “everything old is new again” department? Baby hammocks.

Putting babies in hammocks to sleep ... Read More »

Busted for Breastfeeding on Amtrak

This is the sort of thing I read about in newspapers, but isn’t supposed to happen to me. But it did.
