Keeping Baby’s Legs Warm

Sure, maybe legwarmers were an 80’s fad best left to the pop-culture history books. But for babies and little kids, they’re a very practical way to keep warm on cold days.

No, it’s not a tissue box.

Check this out. It’s a disposable potty. It’s basically a small cardboard box with a hole in the top and a hygenic liner inside. It’s primitive, but it will do the trick in a pinch. As I see it, there’s no reason not to keep one or two in the trunk of the car. The best part is that a ... Read More »

A bib for the ages

Although it isn’t new, the Crumb Chum is worthy of praise, so here it comes. There are a lot of bibs out there, but the Crumb Chum is the most wearable and most effective bib I’ve ever used. The coverage is incredible – it’s somewhat like wearing a smock – and the fabric is very thin and light, so it ... Read More »

Buff, baby

I’m not ashamed to admit that I am a fan of “Survivor” (there are millions of us out there – just not anyone I know). If you’ve never seen it, all you need to know is this: contestants are given color-coded Buffs to identify which tribe they are on. I’d never heard of a Buff until I started watching Survivor, ...
