Gear Guide: Withings Home and Baby Monitoring System

Having a baby can be one of the most exciting and nerve-wracking experiences of your life. One minute you’re basking in the smell of your newborn’s sweet skin and the next, you’re checking in on him in his crib every five minutes to make sure he’s safe and content. Getting things done while your baby is napping is near impossible. Luckily for us, we live in the age of technology, and one of the greatest baby gadgets to hit the markets has been the video baby monitor, making quick check-ins as simple as a glance on a screen from anywhere in the home. But, what if you could check in on your baby while you’re away at work or on a much-needed date with your partner? This is why we love Withings Home Monitoring System. It’s an all-in-one piece of comfort!

Soon after you become a parent, you quickly realize that surviving life with children is going to require “stuff” beyond what your home can hold, especially if you ever plan to leave the house.

Car Seat Guide: Kiddy Cruiserfix Pro

 

Once your child reaches that milestone of at least four years old and 40 lbs, it’s often necessary to start thinking about booster seats, depending on the weight limits of your car seat. We all want to protect our children for as long as possible and often the idea of moving them to a booster is overwhelming and scary. With all the protection car seats offer, we want to feel our child is getting that same level of protection once they’re old enough for a seat belt. 

Kiddy’s CruiserFix Pro is designed for children that are at least 4 years old and up to 12 years of age. We love it for so many reasons, but we adore that it’s such a sturdy booster that looks and feels like a full car seat. Keep reading to learn more about this incredible high back booster.

Car Seat Guide: Recaro Roadster XL Convertible Car Seat

As parents, we know that it can’t always be easy to get your child into a car seat. Sometimes they are not happy to go in the car and complain about being uncomfortable while riding. We have all faced the sad looks and the whiny voices, many times even before strapping them in. It can be a battle! One company knows these challenges first hand and they have constructed a car seat that can handle almost any fussy car rider. 

Not only are these car seats comfortable, but Recaro makes sure that they are tested very carefully for safety. Recaro has just released its new convertible car seat, the Roadster XL, and provides three amazing elements to its passengers – safety, comfort and convenience!

Car Seat Guide: Recaro Performance Sport Combination Car Seat

Choosing the right car seat for your child once you’re ready to forward-face isn’t always as easy as you’d think. You can certainly ride out the life-expectancy of your convertible car seat; but at some point, you’ll need to promote your child to a booster seat. Of course, it’s gotta be safe, but you also want a car seat that is relatively easy to install and comfortable for your child. Furthermore, considering we don’t love the idea of moving any kid straight into a belt-positioning booster seat, you’ll want to look for a high-back booster seat that offers an internal 5-point harness with the option to move to a belt-positioning booster as your child gets bigger. 

With that in mind, Recaro’s Performance Sport Combination Car Seat is for children that are at least 2 years old and over thirty pounds. We love it for a variety of reasons, but we especially love that it will likely be the last forward-facing car seat your child will ever need. Read on to discover more about this incredible combination car seat.

Not Your Mama’s Baby Registry

Long gone are the days of baby registries that consisted of a stroller, a bassinet and some simple swaddles. Today, baby gear is innovative, modern and designed with a focus on quality, practicality, functionality, safety and style. And while it’s practical to receive a mountain of diapers at your baby shower, chances are they might not be the kind you plan on using for your baby. You might also find yourself swimming in piles of adorable newborn onesies, but what happens after your little one outgrows them in a month?
