How to make diaper changes easier? Just Zipit.

I’m continually amazed at the advances in baby gear since I had my youngest three years ago. And this Zipit playsuit for babies are a perfect example of the genius I totally missed out on. Not only do I love the bold colors, I’m digging how the ankle to chest zipper makes it a cinch to change a diaper. If you’re like I was, with a very active baby and early walker, you know how annoying even simple snaps can be. Don’t even start on buttons. Just a quick zip with this playsuit though, and you’re done. Even better, there’s a...

I still remember how frustrating it was when the adults on Sesame Street couldn’t see fuzzy, lovable Snuffy, and Big Bird always got in trouble for whatever trouble that big, clumsy critter caused.

Ooh…affordable baby gifts at Nordstrom while you’re busy shopping for yourself

Featured partner If we had to pick a favorite department store, Nordstrom would be right up there. Between the designers, the wide selection, and their amazing customer service (take the time our Editor Kristen accidentally came home with a security tag attached to her new coat and Nordstrom sent an associate to her home to take it off!) we find ourselves making excuses to pop in whenever we can. (Hello, Chanel counter.) You can also ask our credit cards how much we love shopping there. So you can imagine how excited we are to welcome Nordstrom as our newest...

Belts little kids can do by themselves. Whoo!

We discovered mom-run Myself Belts back in 2006 (wow), and it’s awesome to see how they’ve grown. They make a brilliant line of first belts for toddlers, especially during the potty training months. You know what I’m talking about. And now there are some smart new styles for fall. If you’re not familiar with the concept, these are more than just a piece of fabric with some Velcro at the end; they snap around the first belt loop to secure themselves to the pants (no belt ends in the toilet, whoo!) and then it’s easy for kids to string...
