BottomZz Up: An Eco-Friendly Way to Potty Train

Potty training is one of those important milestones that every parent both dreads and loves at the same time. It can be exciting to finally get rid of diapers, but the prospect of spending days, or even months, cleaning up pee from your floors and your carpets can make any parent feel anxious. And many times things like pull-ups can make it more difficult for a child to learn to potty train because they are too much like diapers. Luckily there is a product getting ready to launch via Kickstarter that helps parents potty train their children in record time without the confusion between diapers and underwear. BottomZz Up is a potty training tool-kit designed to help children feel the wetness when they have an accident all while protecting against leaks. Along with their positive reinforcement tools, BottomZz Up helps make potty training a breeze!

Car Seat Guide: Pria 85 Max by Maxi Cosi

Of all the decisions we have to make as parents, choosing a good car seat for our child is one of the most important ones we’ll make. In fact, you legally need a car seat from the moment you take your baby home from the hospital until he or she is big enough to safely fit into adult seat belts. Up until recently, this requirement would have most parents spending hundreds of dollars on infant carriers, convertible car seats, and boosters. But what if you could buy one car seat that would fit your child for as long as they needed to be in a car seat?

Today we’ll look at Maxi-Cosi’s Pria 85 Max and how it is changing the way we approach car seat safety from 5 to 85 lbs.

The Ultimate Family-Friendly Camping Gear Guide

With 13,000 public campgrounds in the US and Canada (and that doesn’t even count private ones or go-pitch-a-tent-in-an-abandoned-field ones), we have good reason to believe that the oftentimes thought of extinct act of camping does still, in fact, exist. That there are still families who own a sleeping bag and a canteen and aren’t afraid to put down the smartphone for a night or two warms our souls. So, as the temperature starts to thaw, the kids begin to remember what grass and trees are, and Mom and Dad are finally ready to tackle that New Year’s resolution of “spend more time together as a family”, it’s time to circle a weekend on the calendar and go good ol’ fashioned camping!

We won’t let you take ol’ fashioned camping too literally, though. In this day and age, even basic camping gear comes with bells and whistles. We’re excited to show you what the camping gear industry looks like today, and what essential – yet oh so cool – products are out there to give your family-friendly camping excursion a modern and just-like-home feel.

AngelCare Wireless Baby Movement Monitor Gear Guide

Bringing home a new baby is an exciting yet scary time in a parent’s life. The immediate intense love that you experience for such a tiny little human quickly brings to the forefront all of the worries and fears – is he getting enough milk, is she crying from pain, are their dirty diapers supposed to be that color? While all of those are legitimate questions new parents often wonder, worrying about your child while they sleep is consistently on the top of our list of biggest concerns. Thankfully, technology has long given us the ability to watch our baby as they sleep from anywhere in the home. Not only can we check in on baby with just the slightest glance at a monitor, but we can also talk to baby and even check the temperature of the room. While all of these functions have greatly aided in easing our concerns as new parents, Angelcare has taken baby monitors even further by adding a wireless motion monitor able to detect even the slightest of baby’s movements in the crib. We call this a major parenting win.
