DIY Baby Shower Gift Basket Idea for Under $35

I received a fun baby and toddler gift basket from CVS. Normally I wouldn't promote disposable diapers, but as I shared recently, we are not doing cloth diapers full-time right now. Plus, the reality is that a lot of people do use disposables and appreciate receiving them at their baby showers. When

Space Saving Baby Gear: Portable Baby Swing

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Comfort & Harmony. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine. Before becoming a mom, I thought I knew what baby gear I needed to have for my kids. Then I became overwhelmed by creating a


5 Awesome Products for Cold Weather Babies

Being born and raised in Wisconsin, I am no stranger to cold weather. That doesn't mean I like it, but I'm (sorta) used to it. (Does one every really get used to almost freezing their tails off and dealing with several feet of snow every year?)  Not only have I lived through more


Soothing Lights and Music Fit for a Baby

How a New Car Seat Made Road Trips Enjoyable Again

Until the past month or so, road trips have not been very fun with my daughter. In fact, I started to dread them a bit. When she was an infant in the infant carrier car seat, she would do okay, but needed out frequently to nurse. That was understandable on some level,


Little People Zoo Talkers Animal Sounds Zoo by Fisher-Price

I remember playing with Little People by Fisher-Price when I was little. I had a neat little school house for them that wasn't much larger than a Happy Meal box. That was quite some time ago compared to the progression of technology and how we play games. Today's Little People are no


An Adorable Puppy! {Crane Humidifier Review}

What's one thing that we worry about for our kiddos? Their sleep. Are they comfortable? Warm enough? Cool enough? Dry enough? Are they breathing okay? Our minds go a mile a minute worrying, making lists, checking them off, and peeking in our babies “just one last time.”  I know thing I like
