Joovy HiLo: the only highchair you need

I am in love with this highchair and only wish it had been around when we had Ryan 5 years ago!!! It will be the only chair you need—the Joovy HiLo is great for ages 6 months up to 6 years!

How? The seat flips a 180 to go from a baby highchair to a toddler seat. Use it with the tray or without, pushed up to your own table. In the photo above, Rebecca (2) is in the baby position, which means the seat is higher. To rotate the seat, you simply

Summer Infant Bentwood Booster Seat (giveaway)

Have you seen the Bentwood Collection from Summer Infant? It includes a beautiful dark-stained wood highchair, booster seat, and bassinet (which also comes in a light stain). They’re fashionable to fit right in your home and I love the sleek designs. We were recently sent the Bentwood Booster Seat to try out with Rebecca.

Safety Comes First With Munchkin

~My contributor, Joanna, received product to facilitate this review from Munchkin. All opinions and photos are her own!

It’s been some time now that Miss E has been crawling everywhere and getting in to everything! She loves to “take things out” and “put in” …which includes taking everything out of kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Some of the things in those cabinets are glass, or heavy, and just not safe for a baby girl to be tossing around. I knew we needed to get our baby proofing going so I was excited to

Pediatrician: 4 month check-up

Ryan had his 4 month check-up yesterday! And I left with way more questions than I went in with. It’s not completely the ped’s fault… Ryan decided he wanted to scream (it was past his nap time) and Steve and I could barely hear what the doctor was saying. Needless to say, it cut our question time a little short. Besides, I got the doctor’s opinion on what he thinks we should do… now I just need to figure out if we’re going to DO it. But first…

Feeding Solids- advice??

Posting from my iPhone so bare with me! At ped appt today we were told we “could” start Ryan on rice cereal…. 2 tablespoons twice a day and to very slowly work up to as much as 8 tablespoons twice a day.

I had no plans to start any solids until 6 mo. But why?? I wasn’t expecting this to be an issue already so I’m totally unprepared and know nothing about it. Nothing! That’s where you guys come in 🙂

Why wait till 6 mo of age? Why start earlier? Pros and
