Carter's Just One You Bright Dots Travel Swing

Carter’s Just One You Bright Dots Travel Swing Review

As first-time parents we were a tiny bit clueless about how difficult it can be to keep a newborn happy. Sweet T is a compliant, sweet toddler but was a high-maintenance infant! We quickly realized we had to have a baby swing even if I wasn't jazzed about taking up more space in our small home. This time around I don't care if there's not a clear … [Read More...]

Noodle and Boo Giveaway – Ends 8/2

Winner: Jessica P. Stretch marks: Got 'em? Most of us do. Even Hubs has a few from growing so tall so quickly. Only 3% of women will get through a pregnancy without stretch marks.

A crib, car seat, and stroller are three of those things and the stroller … [Read More...]
