Why The Today Show Car Seat Video Isn't Helping

By now you’ve probably seen the video from the Today Show that was spreading like wildfire across social media on Monday. If you haven’t seen it, you can watch it here. This video was part of a special series called “Rossen Reports: Save A Life” and each day during that series the host, Jeff Rossen, is going to share some winter related safety tip. Sounds great, right? Sure. So what winter safety tip was being showcased in the video that went viral? Car seat safety. Yup. Now before you go celebrating how amazing it is that the mainstream media are finally spreading the word about not wearing winter coats in car seats, you might want to watch that video again. This is what I call an opportunity missed, and here’s why.  Read More

Advent Calendar Fun!

Advent Calendar Fun!

Counting down the days until Christmas is so much fun! I love a good advent calendar as much as the next person, but I especially love advent calendars that engage the kids or are unique in some way. Now that The Heir is three, he seemed ready for a more adventurous advent calendar. One that required some thinking, some patience, and a whole lot of fun! King Dad also received an advent calendar this year, and it’s been just as much fun, if not more so, than the one The Heir has been working on. Want to know more about the advent calendars counting down the days until Christmas in our house? Let me share them with you! Read More

Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

I’ve been in the cloth diapering world for almost four years now, and I have to admit that I didn’t know a whole lot about Glow Bug Cloth Diapers. I’d heard of them and I’d seen their posts on Facebook before, but I’d never had one in my hands or on the bum at my house. I can tell you I was really thrilled when Glow Bug Cloth Diapers was interested in sending me one of their diapers to review! I really had no opinions on these diapers, good or bad, so it was great to get a chance to check them out for myself. You know what? I think they’re a pretty nice cloth diaper. If you’re a Glow Bug Cloth Diaper newbie like me, or maybe you’re a tried and true fan of the brand, read on to hear what I think about them!  Read More

Baby Parka Toddler Coat Review

Baby Parka Toddler Coat Review

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own. 

Winter car seat safety is something that I take very seriously. I live in a part of the world that typically has freezing temperatures for 6 or more months of the year. We get snow, we get ice, we get wind, and yet we still have to carry on with our lives. I’m all for products that make surviving winter with kids easier. I want my kids to be warm when they are in the car. I really do. I also want them to be safe when they are in the car. Wearing winter coats or snowsuits under the harness straps of the car seat is NOT safe. Period. The good news is that there are options available that allow you to buckle the car seat harness correctly and keep your child warm in winter. I’ve recently had the pleasure of trying out the Baby Parka Toddler Coat which allows your child to stay warm in the car seat without the hassle of removing their coat. Here’s how it works and what I think about it.  Read More
