Stroller Spas Are A Real Thing & You Need Them In Your Life

Stroller Spas Are A Real Thing & You Need Them In Your Life

As my daughter celebrates her 6 month birthday, I realize that I’m currently the owner of my fifth stroller. There’s so much to consider when purchasing a stroller -  where you typically walk, how well it fits in your car or on transit, where you’re going to store it, the age and size of your child, budget and more. It's hard to predict these things before you're actually living it with your baby.

Kid-Approved Lunch Box Ready Snacks

Kid-Approved Lunch Box Ready Snacks

I love a good energy ball recipe or labor-intensive, homemade cheddar cheese cracker, but with the dog days of summer drawing to an end, I would much rather be out enjoying the sun than home watching the oven while I make my very own strawberry-raspberry chia fruit roll ups. I have spent hours scouring the health food aisles to find the most natural and healthiest snack options and have put together a toddler-approved list of some of my favorite lunch-box friendly (read: nut free) snacks.

The Exciting New Adventure: Food For Baby! 

The Exciting New Adventure: Food For Baby! 

Four years ago, when I still felt undecided about whether or not I’d have a child of my own, I couldn’t resist purchasing a cookbook by Tyler Florence called “Start Fresh”, full of recipes for infants through to toddlers. I figured it was better to be prepared and why shouldn’t baby food be tasty?
