Phil & Teds Vibe arrives, but…

We received our first shipment of the Phil & Teds Vibe stroller. After being somewhat less than thrilled with the prototype we saw in Las Vegas, we ordered just a very small number to try. We do have floor models in all three stores, so if you’re curious about them, and you’re in the area, please come down and take ... Read More »

Adventures in Gender Prediction

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been on a quest to test out a litany of gender prediction techniques, both scientific and unscientific, in preparation for my 18-week ultrasound. We knew that we would try to find out the baby’s gender if we could, and I thought it would be interesting to assess which methods proved accurate and which did ... Read More »

The Birth Book & Blog

On my recent vacation, I read a book called “Birth: The Surprising History of How We are Born” by Tina Cassidy. I thought it was phenomenal – really well-researched, and the presentation was so engaging that it was as hard to put down as any good fiction I’ve read lately. I would highly recommend it, if you’re curious about the ... Read More »

New York Magazine’s Stroller Testdrive

Check out this great article from New York Magazine. The author took nine of the newest and hottest strollers for a testdrive. Aside from the Fisher Price and the Perego Skate, we sell all the other strollers she tested, and I think she did a really good job of evaluating them. It’s a very even-handed and accurate assessment. Enjoy! Read More »

Newest dates for Phil & Teds strollers

According to an update I received this morning: The Classic buggy will be available 2/15/08. The Dash and the Vibe will be available 3/15/08. My local sales rep apparently had a preview of the strollers, but I haven’t had a chance to hear about it yet. Regal Lager and Phil & Teds are keeping things very hush-hush. I know a ... Read More »

CARES Harness in the air

Any parent who has ever flown with a young child will understand why Louise Stoll, a grandmother of 9, was spurred into action after watching her pregnant daughter struggle through an airport with a toddler, a car seat and a diaper bag. She went to the drawing board and designed a five-point harness that could fit into a tiny bag, ... Read More »

A Standing Ovation for the Bella Band

The first trimester of pregnancy is a unique time, especially if, like me, you don’t tell anyone outside of your immediate family that you’re pregnant. You’re keeping a big secret, and it starts to feel like you’re harboring a very small fugitive. Even with all the weight loss between my last pregnancy and this one (I’m more than 40 lbs ...
