Product Review: Baby Ergo Carrier

By |September 11, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, Gear, MACT Award Winners, Product Reviews|

If I had to pick 3 things that I would not want to go without, the Ergo Baby Carrier would be one of them! Me and my husband love to be in nature and hike, so this definitely fits into our lifestyle perfectly. We have the organic denim carrier, but they come in other colors too. I was first introduced to the Ergo Baby Carrier when my friend came to visit us in Kauai. My baby was 3 months old, and her boy was 1 years old. She wore her boy all over the island, and not only was I totally sold on one for us, it seemed that a mom in every spot we went to was asking her about it as well. […]

Product Review: CALIFORNIA BABY Super Sensitive Hair Conditioner

My baby was born bald, and she remained peach-fuzzy for at least her first 12 months. Now at 22 months, she has the greatest hair-do. Super long blond hair in the back with gentle curls that spring when she dances around the house. Did I mention long….in the back. Yep, we call it the “baby girl mullet.” And it is the most beautiful mullet in all of time. Her hair is fine and silky. It is so soft! That is, on a good day. Does this happen to your baby too? A perfect hair day gone bad as soon as she gets out of the car seat, crib, or stroller? From silk to bird’s nest in just one car ride! […]

What’s Lurking In Your Baby’s Sippy Cup or Bottle?

By |August 25, 2007 |0-1 yr, 1-3 yrs, 3-5 yrs, 5+ yrs, Food Gear, Product Reviews|

I have known that drinking out of plastic bottles isn’t the healthiest choice. But, more recently now, after having my baby, I have looked into the issue a little deeper, and I have become concerned by what I am learning. “Of 115 published animal studies, 81% found significant effects from even low-levels of exposure to BPA. While none of the 11 industry-funded studies found significant effects, over 90% of government-funded studies did so. […]
