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 »

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 ...

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 »

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.
