Stroller Guide: Carry it ALL on-the-go with Summer Infant 3Dtote

Parents love umbrella strollers; they’re lightweight, compact, and convenient, but more often than not they’re only feasible for carrying a kid. Sure, for all intents and purposes, a stroller is made for just carrying a kid, but we all know that kids don’t just come with cute little toes and pudgy bellies; they also pack a punch with sippy cups, ten thousand bags of snacks, toys, diapers, and a slew of other “necessities” to make a simple ride in a stroller a success. So, when we found the Summer Infant 3Dtote umbrella stroller that boasts an enormous storage capacity – even larger than some full size stroller’s! – we were giddy and relieved that finally we would be able to carry it all, everywhere we went… oh yeah, plus the kid.

Stroller Guide: Compact Luxury with Pockit by GB

When’s the last time you looked in the back of your car and all you could think of was how much stuff comes along with having kids? Between the diaper bag, the toys, odds and ends strewn across your car floor, a stroller, and the countless other extras that you aren’t quite sure how they made their way in there – the truth is that having little kids means stuff just seems to multiply and extra space seems to rapidly decline. Do you remember the days of a clean back seat or a non-stop flight with one small carry on bag? Children are certainly precious bundles of joy, but they definitely come with their share of bulky baggage. There are so many amazing companies out there that are on a mission to simplify parent’s lives and lighten their load, literally. GB USA is giving parents an amazing, much lighter, and simple excuse to do just that with their Pockit Stroller.

Anatomy 101: Big Words for Little People

When you have your first child something strange happens to your use of language. Your voice goes higher. You start adding -y’s to the end of your words. You make silly sounds and you make up ridiculous nicknames to call your baby. Your voice goes into singsong mode and you can’t seem to make it stop. But is all this baby talk good for the language development of your child?

The latest research says yes – extending your vowel sounds and making your sentences into more of a song help a child develop their own language skills. The caveat? You should still be using real words – not made up, nonsensical words. One of the most common areas of discussion that parents like to use euphemisms for when speaking to their children are body parts. Many parents feel uncomfortable using the formal terminology when discussing a person’s most private areas, but experts say that isn’t the way to go.

The Best Thing I Ever Did for my Sanity

The Best Thing I Ever Did for my Sanity

The decision to be a stay at home mom was not made lightly. For eight years, I enjoyed all the perks of being a traveling management consultant including trips around the globe, employer-paid health insurance, and the financial freedom that allowed us to do whatever, whenever we pleased. But, I strongly believed that being at home with my kids while they were young was far more important than my bank account. 

I knew that my life would forever be changed, but I had no idea that by leaving the workplace I would be giving up my main connection to an adult life.

It’s no secret that life changes in many amazing and challenging ways when a little baby arrives on the scene. Parents have nine months to stock the nursery, wash the onesies, and read the parenting books before bringing home their bundle of joy. However, not much is said about how Junior’s arrival will impact perhaps the most important relationship in the family: the parents’ marriage.
