6 Toys That Keep Little Ones Mesmerized

This past weekend, we were invited to a wonderful housewarming party for some friends. Even with a smorgasbord of delicious Southern style food, a perfect neighborhood setting, and a great group of new friends with young kids, it was Mickey and his Plane Ride-on toy that really stole the show.

See it and other perfect toys for your next get-together!

Get Dad a Diaper Bag, Too

Now that my son is getting older, he wants to be SO much more active. He’s less interested in us carrying him places, and instead wants to crawl or hold our hands and walk there. To get some of that energy used up, we’re on the go quite a bit more in the afternoons. Parks, walks, trips to get some froyo (dad’s weakness) — whatever it is, we’re getting out of the house more and having a lot of fun. But that means I’ve got to be prepared!

Find Your Perfect Stroller

My husband sometimes makes fun of me for having so many strollers packed away in our garage.

But with four children six and under, strollers are an important part of my life–and along every walk of life, there’s a different kind of stroller to push.

Tips & Tricks for Successful Babywearing

It’s no secret that I L-O-V-E babywearing. Sure, I loved it with my first. But once my second baby (and even my third) were born, babywearing became a lifestyle. We all know the perks of wearing your baby. Less crying, free hands, amazing bonding, strangers can’t touch them, easing breastfeeding, etc. You don’t have to lug around a carseat or stroller, either! And with other kids in tow, babywearing is a huge lifesaver. I can take my older girls to the park or to the library or to the store with my baby strapped to my chest the entire time. Margot (4 months) LOVES to be worn in a wrap or carrier. She is happy as a clam and would be perfectly content hanging out on me all day long if I let her.

5 On-the-Go Essentials for Your Breastfed Babe

Thanks to Disney Baby for sponsoring this post and giving me Huggies Little Snugglers Diapers for free.

Little Miss Margot is exclusively breastfed at this point. We’ve worked really hard and overcome a lot, so I’m happy that I am able to nurse her. With two other children, we are frequently out of the house and on the go. Babies are usually known for needing everything but the kitchen sink when they are away from home, but the truth is, a breastfed babe (who isn’t yet eating solid foods) doesn’t need much. It’s a perk of breastfeeding, for sure! In fact, Little Margot needs so little that I usually don’t take a diaper bag with me. Instead, I just put a few necessities in my purse and off we go!

Here are 5 on-the-go essentials for your breastfed baby…
