The FDA bans BPA (sort of)

The FDA bans BPA (sort of)

As a glass-is-half-full kind of person, I am thrilled to read that the FDA has (finally) agreed to ban the use of BPA in all baby bottles and spill-proof cups. OK, sure, Europe, Canada and China, along with a handful of U.S. states, have already made this move. And I...
Bottle accessories that get the drying done in style

Bottle accessories that get the drying done in style

One of my least favorite parts about the baby stage is all that bottle stuff. The making of the bottles (especially at 4 in the morning), the cleaning of them and the finding somewhere to put them. Two cool-looking new accessories from Beaba offer relief for at least...
Starting solids with baby? – Reader Q&A

Starting solids with baby? – Reader Q&A

I am getting ready to start feeding my baby solids next month. With my daughter, I thought making my own food would be way too much work. Now, I have the time and would love to make my own food for my son. The problem is I have no idea where to start. What do I need...

Taste the (healthy!) rainbow

The latest rage at our house isn’t candy. Or even the colorful vegetables that might end up spit-splattered across your blouse if baby isn’t into beets. No, this exciting new pick is healthy, delicious, beautiful, and handy. And, honestly, kinda half candy...
HappyBaby = HappyMama

HappyBaby = HappyMama

Kids like snacks. Like, really, really like them. Understatement of the year, right? I truly believe that if I just had a constant supply of snack-type foods on hand, my children would eat all day. And I have a sneaking –or is it snacking?– suspicion that...
Organic baby food that fits in your back pocket

Organic baby food that fits in your back pocket

I have approximately 563 teensy glass baby food jars left over from when my 3-year-old was a baby. Okay, I may be exaggerating. But the pantry sure feels like Baby Food Container Central. My plan was to use these jars in all kinds of useful, and… well,...
This cup is made from plants. Yup, plants.

This cup is made from plants. Yup, plants.

I have a huge sweet tooth. But, I don’t want to eat yogurt that’s impersonating a strawberry shortcake or alcoholic beverage. If I want shortcake, I’ll have shortcake! That’s one of the reasons I’m a big fan of Stonyfield Farm’s...
