I’ve talked about babywearing before and I’m sure I’ll talk about it in the future, but it’s something that I plan to do quite often with Little Miss Carter. I truly believe that it strengthens the bond between parent and child. Ultimately, I want to be close to my little girl. Who wouldn’t? She’ll be happy; I’ll be happy; the whole family will be happy. I’ve researched and reviewed countless carriers and the ERGObaby Performance Carrier is the most highly regarded and recommended by active parents, many of whom give it perfect ratings. With exceptional quality like the foam-padded straps at the shoulder and waist, adjustable fitting for parents of all sizes, a design that distributes most of the weight to the wearer’s hips, reducing the back and shoulder strain common among baby carriers, and versatility (babies can be carried up front, on one hip, or piggyback style), the Ergo Baby Carrier’s features stand out among the vast array of choices. The ERGObaby Carrier makes babywearing safe and a snap, and you don’t need to have a degree in engineering to figure our how to use it. The ERGO is designed so that you can wear your baby for hours on end with comfort all while allowing you to remain active and productive! Continue reading
Choosing the best baby carrier has been extremely confusing and I may not know what works best until my precious baby girl arrives. After substantial research and consideration, I’ve chosen the Boba Wrap for when my little bundle of joy arrives because of its high quality, comfort, durability, and ergonomic design. The Boba Wrap is perfect for my active lifestyle and gives me the time and freedom to create a real and caring bond with my child, while living life to the fullest.
Nursing is on the top of my list when it comes to having a newborn baby, but I’m hesitate to nurse in public and don’t want to be locked up in the house for as long as I’m nursing. After considering several options, the 4-in-Nursing Shawl by L’ovedbaby is the perfect, versatile solution. It’s a pregnancy poncho, pumping bib, car seat canopy, and lightweight blanket. Its silky chamois-like fabric feels terrific, and it’s breathable for my baby’s comfort. I want my baby girl to be a L’oved Baby, and this is a great start in the right direction. Continue reading
I’ve heard that swaddling has been proven to help babies sleep better, longer, and safer. It reduces incidences of SIDS, colic and fussiness, and it can help make breastfeeding easier. I understand the benefits of swaddling but, as a first time mother, I question how should I swaddle my baby? How tight should the swaddle be? How can I maximize the effects of the swaddle? Basically, how do I know if I’m doing it right? The Woombie is a safe, comfortable, and effective way to swaddle my baby, encouraging her to softly stretch extremities as needed, just like in the womb. It’s an effective way to know I’m doing it right because all I need to do is zipper it up and tuck in the zipper. Continue reading
When it comes to baby products, I’m always on the hunt for something versatile, functional, and fun. Many baby products seem to excel in either versatility, form, or function, but not the Peg Perego Sdraietta Melodia Italian import bouncer; it has it all! This bouncer looks absolutely amazing, and then you try it out… and it is absolutely amazing! The Sdraietta Melodia is a one of a kind bouncer. Not only does it play music with surround sound speakers and have MP3 compatibility, it easily converts to a rocker from its stationary position and is adjustable for comfort with 2-position recline; it has a carrying handle and buckle closure; it folds for storage with a detachable toy bar and removable, padded seat; and it’s conducive to every situation, whether you are at home, going to a friend’s house, or even hitting the beach and taking advantage of the sun canopy. It may cost a bit more than the average baby seat, but that’s because it has so much more to offer. Continue reading
