Chad Carter

Chad Carter is the husband to an amazing woman and new dad to a 9-month-old in Portland, Oregon. One thing is for sure, he never imagined he’d be writing for Disney Baby, but dreams do come true! He’s the co-creator of dadswhodiaper.com and the Dads Who Diaper podcast, focusing on dads who are more active in child rearing than ever before. He started writing on a whim and hasn’t stopped since. As a former TV journalist, sharing stories apparently are just a part of him.

These Wet Bags Are Perfect for a Change in the Weather

Well, it finally happened. The glorious summer and amazing weather we’ve had in the Pacific Northwest has finally turned. As I look out the window, the rain is falling, the traditional red and orange tinged leaves are dripping water onto sidewalks, and morning headlights are reflecting off the sheen of water covering the pavement.

But in this neck of the woods, that doesn’t stop us from braving the outdoors, even with Baby. With these Bumkins wet and snack bags, we’re ready to tackle the elements.

Here's What You Need to Know About Getting Baby's Passport

Can you believe the holidays are sneaking up on us already? This winter we’re heading to Whistler, Canada for a big family trip including Grandma & Grandpa, my brother and his family, and us. It’s going to be an incredible time but it got us thinking about one MAJOR thing. Wyatt needs a passport.

Gone are the days of crossing the border with just a photo ID; now even he needs a passport. Which led to a some serious research about what exactly that meant. Here’s what I discovered when digging up all the things we needed.

4 Things to Know When Selecting a Guardian

Celebrating this first year with Wyatt has been an amazing experience! There have been so many wonderful memories and milestones that make us fall in love with him more every day. Which makes it impossible to think we would never be around for him. One of the last things on our minds (though it shouldn’t be) was making arrangements should something tragic happen to us.

Fall is the Perfect Time to Start Family Traditions

I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorite times of year. I love living in a region where the seasons change, the air cools, and leaves undergo a beautiful transformation before piling up on our lawn. It’s also the time when families start thinking about traditions – new and old – as the holidays begin the not-so-slow creep up on us.

Why Technology Will Never Replace Actual Face Time

Technology is a pretty great thing. With my wife’s family living several states away, seeing and talking with them through video chat allows everyone to stay connected and still feel a part of Wyatt’s big moments as he grows. It’s convenient, fun, and super simple. But it still can’t replace one very important thing.
