Bright Starts Sunnyside Safari Plug in Sway & Swing Review

Bright Starts Sunnyside Safari Swing When this swing arrived, my first thought was "GREAT- Husband is at work and how the heck am I going to put this together by myself with a baby demanding all my attention?" I had to get it together before he got home and found a huge mess in the living room, so I buckled up and got ready for what was sure to be a headache. NOT SO MUCH! I got this bad boy together in about 5 minutes. My little munchkin didn't even make a peep, he was fascinated by this new … [Read more...]

Bright Starts Sunnyside Safari Playard

First things first - the look of this is super cute, and goes along perfectly with the other Sunnyside Safari products we have. Totally gender neutral, so we can use this same set whether our next child is a boy or a girl. The colors are super bright and engaging. Perfect for little ones :) [singlepic id=8 w=350 float=center] I would like to start off by saying that this took me literally 2 MINUTES to get together. If I was a little better at these things, it could have taken me less time. … [Read more...]

Get a FREE Digital Baby Book from Safety 1st and Never Miss Another Milestone!

Safety1st

When my daughter was first born I diligently wrote in her baby book at every milestone. Her first ultrasound, kick, who was at the hospital, and the first time she smiled. However, as she became more active and we became even busier, I became less and less diligent.  I always thought "I'll have to update it tonight..tomorrow. I REALLY need to write it in the baby book!" Finally, at some point, I have to visit my facebook page and see when I gushed about the milestone. That's the problem with … [Read more...]

Bright Starts Signature edition ingenuity play yard

A playard is one of those essential items that every mom with a new baby needs.  It provides you with a safe and cozy place for baby to play or sleep, whether in a hotel room or in your living room.  Although I did not receive a playard as a baby shower gift, I am thrilled that I now have the InGenuity Signature Edition SleepEasy Play Yard to review. The playard was relatively painless to put together.  The whole thing comes rolled up in a handy travel bag.  The basic structure comes already … [Read more...]

  As first time moms (and even veterans moms) we have found ways to save money and cut budgets across the board. In this economy, it really does behoove every family to do so! However, there are some things I always felt that I just had to have for my child - no matter the price. Brand name Baby Formula was one of them.

Munchkin’s new line of Click Lock Spill-Proof Cups are currently the jam in my jelly roll.
