If I were a 1st time mom again

I would register for these products...[click on each picture for product details]. Pregnancy Breastfeeding Baby Care Life You may be scratching your head and wondering why I left out so many "essential" items. Cribs. Bottles. Pacifiers. Pumps.

Creepy, Crazy & Quirky Baby Products {would you buy them?}

Advice to 1st time moms-to-be: be weary of the baby industry. Baby stores + expos will try to convince you to buy lots of STUFF - stuff that will collect dust and that you will sell on Craigslist later. To help prove my point, I've been compiling a list of crazy baby products that I […]

SLY Awards: Zutano

Kristen has a 14-month-old son...and a girl on-the-way in late May (Girls are wonderful and sweet and stupendous...and she's going to love it). I'm pleased to introduce her to Zutano, a leading clothing line that features newborn, baby, and toddler apparel in bright colors and whimsical designs. She'll be receiving a $75 gift card.

It's not that I want to leave my child with strangers, but it would be nice if her grandparents could hold her once in a while... Um. Not really. Because...we don't really […]

Here In The Darkness

Every night at around 7pm, I have about 20-30 minutes of quiet. In the dark. My 10-month-old has a mattress on the floor in her room and I lay beside her in the stillness. Since we don't do the whole cry-it-out thing, I typically stay with her until she falls asleep. After bath at 6:45, […]
