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

Creating Holiday Memories

Creating Holiday Memories

There’s something really special about the holidays once you have kids. There’s nothing like watching your child discover the magic of Christmas. In some ways, it takes me right back to my own childhood memories around Christmas, complete with a dad that dances to Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas” every Christmas morning (he still does this even now). But there is something totally different and incredibly special about seeing the lights of the Christmas tree twinkle in the eyes of your son (or daughter). This past weekend we decided to really get into the Christmas spirit. Here’s a little run down of the things we did, many of which are sure to become annual traditions.  Read More

Tula Baby Carrier Review!

Tula Baby Carrier Review

This post contains affiliate links.

Tula baby carriers shouldn’t need any introduction, but on the off chance that you are brand new to the world of baby wearing, let me tell you what a Tula is. The Tula Baby Carrier is a soft structured carrier (SSC) that allows you to wear baby in an ergonomic position. What that means is that baby will be seated in a “M-position” where their knees are higher than their bum. This is the optimal positioning when wearing your baby. There are a lot of SSCs on the baby wearing market. A lot. The Tula, however, is special. Why? There are so many reasons. Once you’ve worn a Tula, the odds are good you’ll be hooked. That’s exactly what happened to me and it could happen to you too! Read More

Tots Bots PeeNut Wrap & Day to Night Absorbent Pads Review

Tots Bots Peenut Wrap & Pop In Pads Review

My friend Lindsay over at Maman Loup’s Den gave me this diaper for free so I could try it out.

I’ve finally had a chance to try out a true AI2 style diaper and I want to share my thoughts on this particular system. It’s the Tots Bots PeeNut Wrap (aka cover) coupled with the Tots Bots PeeNut Day to Night Absorbent Pop In Pads (aka soakers). I love a lot of things about Tots Bots cloth nappies (doesn’t that sound no much cuter than diapers?). First, I love that they are made in the UK. Tots Bots are also known for their super fun prints, and I LOVE prints. The PeeNut wrap that I’ve been using is the Hey Diddle Diddle print and it’s just adorable. It may surprise you that this particular diaper is a velcro closure. But wait! Yes, I totally prefer snaps, BUT Tots Bots has the best velcro in the cloth diaper industry and it is amazing and strong. Amazing enough that don’t really miss my beloved snap closures. This stuff lasts, so don’t dismiss Tots Bots on account of its famed velcro. Want to know how the Tots Bots PeeNut wrap and Pop In Pads performed on Petit Prince (how’s that for alliteration)? Here’s what I think! Read More
