Today we had a visit from a couple of representatives from Regal-Lager, the US distributor of Phil & Teds, as well as the new US representative for Phil & Teds, who works directly for the New Zealand outfit. We were pleased as punch when they told us they were bringing us a Dash to play with. As it turns out, ... Read More »

Your turn…

July has officially started. And since my due date is in July, logic dictates that my baby will be coming soon. For some reason, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around this. And I’m having an even harder time getting organized with all the things I know I’m going to need. Of course, this is incredibly ironic, since ... Read More »

Bin-Go is its name-o

Just in from Skip Hop is the brand new Bin-Go, yet another utterly genius product from the gifted design team who pioneered the original diaper-bag-that-hangs-on-your-stroller.

Things to do when you’re on bed rest…

I appreciate you all bearing with me during this little snag in my health. About a week and a half ago, we finally figured out what was wrong, and a week ago, I had a minor procedure to help resolve the problem.

A better bumper

If you have the temperament for it, one of the most fun parts of preparing for a new baby is decorating the nursery. Even for a decor-challenged mom-to-be (that’s me), there’s a thrill to choosing the colors and patterns that will adorn the baby’s room. Bedding is a big piece of the puzzle, and most well-dressed cribs sport a bumper. ... Read More »

What’s the deal with BPA?

Yesterday, I received a statement from the JPMA (Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association), the well-respected organization that, among many other functions, sets safety standards for many of the most common baby products on the market. In this statement, the JPMA continues to deny the risk of using baby bottles produced with BPA (bisphenol A). The media has been having a field ... Read More »

Lots to carry? Natalie can help.

When you have a new baby, packing light to go anywhere is nothing short of comical. Babies may be small, but it always seems like you need a lot of stuff. And the longer you’ll be away from home, the more you’ll need. A full day’s worth of supplies – diapers, wipes, a couple of changes of clothes, a few ... Read More »

Good Vibe?

I spent a few hours today at the Boston Baby Faire, and I finally had a chance to play with the Vibe and formulate a concrete opinion about it. Here are my thoughts. There is no such thing as a perfect stroller; this is a universal truth. Parents are always making choices and sacrificing certain features in favor of others ... Read More »

Go Gaga Slide Bag Makes a Splash

The diaper bag I liked so much at the ABC show in Las Vegas has landed in our stores, and it’s getting a very warm reception. The Slide Bag is a messenger-style diaper bag that offers parents a variety of innovative features to make this one of the most flexible, functional (and almost certainly the most comfortable) diaper bags on ...
