Safety + Style

Remember the good old days of driving cross-country with your parents, sprawled out across the back seat of the station wagon? Seat belts–please. Who used seat belts? While I’m actually quite glad to be breeding in the day and age of kid’s safety...

Those Who Skipped the Changing Table, Raise Your Hand

With my daughter, I invested in a handy dandy changing table that I used all of four times. I strongly suggest you just plunk a changing pad on a dresser top…or like I did, maybe just use your bed. Then all you need is a cute little diaper caddy to hold the...
