Nuna MIXX stroller: a swanky, sturdy recliner on wheels

As we get ready to welcome our newest bundle I have been catching up on all the hip and inventive baby gear that has surfaced in the past 5 years. Of course, the stroller is one of the most essential pieces, so I have been taking my time on this one. The brand new Nuna MIXX stroller is a strong contender from my recent test drives. The Nuna MIXX stroller is solid for my new task of keeping up with a baby and a kindergartner.  I love the sleek, modern look, but my favorite part of this Dutch-inspired design is the seating flexibility.

Dream a little dream of dragons, bats, and narwhals.

Now you can put your baby to sleep with visions of fantasy dragons, hedgehogs, and even adorable bats (yes, they’re a thing) in her head. The handmade baby mobiles from Bee Janie Baby Mobiles feature all these creatures and more. You guys, they even have a mythical beasts mobile—you know, in case you have a Game of Thrones nursery in the works. Each mobile is handmade from felt, and most have somewhat unexpected creatures for a baby’s room. I mean, have you ever seen a mobile with bats before—the sleeping-in-caves kind, not the baseball kind? Me either, but I want one now. The...

File under problems I never thought I’d have: Agonizing over double strollers. With a 17-month-old in tow and a brand new baby, I’ve been feeling the pressure to pick the perfect ride. If I was still in New York where my primary means of transportation were my own two feet and unpredictable winter weather was inevitable, I just might be plunking down serious cash for a Bugaboo Donkey. But now that I drive just about everywhere in sunny California, my priorities have changed. How easy is the stroller to fold? How heavy and wide is it? Will it fit in my trunk? Is side-by-side...

Baby Comfy Nail: a baby nail clipper you won’t be afraid to use on a newborn

I remember putting off trimming my son’s nails for days when he was born, because I was afraid of accidentally cutting his delicate fingers off with the baby nail clipper and suddenly finding myself in a scene worthy of Quentin Tarantino. Not so with my newborn baby girl. I’m a little more confident now, plus I tried out Baby Comfy Nail safety clippers on her super soft one-week-old nails, and they worked like a charm. The concept is pretty simple. Baby Comfy Nail only has one blade! The bottom plastic edge pushes your baby’s skin back and out of the way as the top blade trims her nails.  I...
