Shouldn’t the Baby Smell Better After the Bath?

I have learned over the past 18 months that fancy packaging is no indication of a great baby lotion. I started with the highest-end, la-di-da, imported line of products, only to find they reeked like a perfume counter saleswoman exploded all over the nursery. Now I’m doubly skeptical of anything until I try it myself.

Say Goodbye to Preggo Brain

With all the hormones rushing through my body and my brain cells being sucked awayby the minute,there’s no way I could possibly keep up with everything that goes along with having a baby. OB check-up stats? Baby Registry? Daycare interview? Ack!

The Maternity Three-Way

I can personally attest to the fact that by the time you pop that baby out, you’re ready to burn all your maternity clothes. Not just because most of them aren’t up to your prepartum style standards, but because you wear them so much you’re just damn tired of looking at them. With that in mind, the 3-in-1 dress from NEST by Swanky Maternity is that perfect addition to the maternity closet

Hit the Road, Jack. And Emma.

Balancing the everyday logistics of work and home: No problem. Planning a vacation for our family of four: Problem. I become paralyzed with information overload, and all I want is for someone I trust to give me the real scoop on what to pack, where to go, and what to do.

Dinner for One, Hold the Microbes

Whoever invented the Tiny Diner Portable Placemat has definitely walked a mile in my shoes. Whenever we go out to eat, I have no choice but to put pieces of food right on the table because my year-old son is known to send his plates sailing without so much as a head’s up, suckas!
