So much coolness. Where to start…

Hey, There’s Shmutz on This Bib!

With Passover just around the corner, we searched far and wide for a great item for baby's first Seder. We stopped when we found this clever cotton bib. Shmutz (Yiddish for a little mess) will pretty much sum up the state of affairs if your little mensch takes a...

Snap On, Snap Off

Perennial2Why is it when you finally get around to buying clothes and room duds that support your kids’ interests (read: feed their obsessions), they have already moved onto something else? You end up being out countless dollars, and up about 14 Winnie-the-Pooh shirts and 2 sheet sets that you can’t return.

Come On, Swaddle Me

Swaddler_1Did you listen to the OB nurse when she explained the perfect swaddling technique? I don’t know about you, but I was way too busy worrying about attaching the baby to my boob to think about tightly wrapping my child in a crappy hospital blanket. But when I got home, I realized that I probably should have listened.

Stay Undivorced

WryBaby is one of our go-to sites at CMP, and also one of yours judging from the number of tips we receive about them. Of all the cheeky gifts you'll find there, The Wheel of Responsibility is a favorite. It's just what it sounds like - a simple way to determine whose...

Let Them Eat Cupcakes.

Cupacake A Cup-a-Cake container is one of those items that on first glance makes you say, "huh?" On second glance you think, "pretty smart," and on third glance you’re like, "I need forty-two of them, NOW NOW NOW!"

A Cause We Can All Rally Behind

Dianetics states that moms in labor "maintain silence in the presence of birth to save the sanity of the mother and the child and safeguard the home to which they will go." Um. Democrat or Republican, red state or blue, I think we can all agree on one thing: Katie...

Keep That Binky on a Short Leash

Sure, bunnies and teddy bears are cute and all, but just because you have a baby doesn't mean you have to look like one. That's the problem with a lot of baby gear. It's made for them but YOU still have to carry it around. Well...we know you ain't no baby, baby, and...

I’m A Sucker For The Snack Sack

I think we spent more time standing in front of the stroller selection at our local Baby Superstore than we did trying to conceive the little creature.This stroller didn’t have a cup holder for Mom.That stroller didn’t have a big enough cargo space. Standing...

Loungin’ Out In Style

There's nothing like a crazy day of nursing and sleeping to tire out even the busiest babies. Nothing feels better than tearing off that tight, dirty onesie and slipping on something way more comfortable - say a Lounge Set by Janel and Amy at Abe Jones. These 100%...

The Pros of Cons

As a teenager in the 80s, I was rarely seen without my black Chuck Taylor high-tops with the anarchy A scrawled on the toes. The kicks have since given way to something a bit more fashion-backward (and more supportive in the arches), but I still yearn for the hipster...

No, G is Not for Guiliani

Abc_book_cover New York City can teach a child any number of things. Like how to distinguish a Bangladeshi cab driver accent from a Pakistani one. Or how to learn to share toys with Uma’s daughter in the sandbox of the Bleecker Street playground. Now, NYC is also teaching children their ABCs.

“If Mama Ain’t Happy, Ain’t Nobody Happy”

MamazineI think many of the mainstream parenting-type magazines make fine reads… for my daughter while I’m on the toilet. What toddler doesn’t love to flip through pages of baby pictures and toy ads? But when I’m looking for something to challenge my slowly deteriorating mom brain, I head right over to mamazine.com.
