    For 10 months (or longer) you look forward to taking your newborn bundle of joy home. You have all the gear, the room is perfect and you’ve read all the books. And then it happens… You get home and  your darling sleeps for a few hours and is up. I don’t mean up and needs a little cuddle, I mean up and ready to party. I remember those first few weeks with my newborn. Trying to heal from delivery, trying to do everything right and struggling with lack of sleep. My little guy was colicky and only slept one to two hours at a time. He would take hours to settle down. This…

  • My DIY Sweet Drops Coffee Creamer

    12 Feb 2015 | 9:05 am
      When it comes to health, I am very big on small changes. Big changes are hard to adopt long term and absorb into every day life. Little changes and baby steps, however, aren't so hard to stick too. One small step towards better health I've adopted over the last year has been switching to stevia. Stevia is calorie free and derived from the plant Stevia rebaudiana so it's not a chemical. I used to be a Splenda fan and a sugar free junkie in general but after doing the HCG diet (I know, I know it's controversial but it worked for me) and an elimination diet to pin-point some migraine…

    The Nurses Are In
    25 Jun 2015 | 1:00 am
    When I thought about writing this post, I have to be honest, I kinda dreaded it. Just like I kinda dread the subject. Pumping. Who likes to feel like a milking cow? I know there are exclusive pumpers out there and I mean no offense. As a personal preference I would just much rather breastfeed if given the choice. So, you may ask, why do I do it? For many women pumping is not necessary. Each woman makes their own choices regarding their breastfeeding experience. For myself it was a necessary step to maintain my somewhat limited milk supply while returning to work. That being said I wanted to…

    October is the season filled with displays of witches, ghosts, skeletons and ghoulish items.  They represent the dark side of us all and the fears that permeate our minds.   Horror movies pique interests on watching the terror a person must face to survive.  The HBO series Dexter is an example. (He’s a serial killer that kills other murderers;  a hero and a villain, all at the same time.) Do we need to watch horror flicks to stimulate our fears and darkness when the daily news fills our minds with fear everyday?  Ebola flashes across the TV screen like a red flashing light warning us…

    Trust, according to Webster’s dictionary is: “the belief in and reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc, of a person or thing.”  If you look back on your own life experiences, how many times your trust has been violated on many different levels of life?  I think every single one of us can share a story of how a trust was broken and how painful it was.  We can look at organized religions that have broken a sacred trust, as well as governments, banks, businesses, and personal relationships in which trusts are broken frequently.  You might ask ‘Is trust humanly…

    Integrity is an important virtue to cultivate. In our fast paced society many people over commit themselves and never follow through on their promises.  Honesty goes hand in hand with integrity like a harmonious chord.  People are conditioned to say what people want to hear, rather than speak the truth. Recently I made hotel arrangements with an online company that had “ Price Assurance”; I thought that this was the lowest rate possible.  I booked with them and then discovered I was over charged by hundreds of dollars.  The travel service told me that the hotel did not have the right…

    Summer is fully upon us, readers! But while warm temps and fun outdoor activities are great, those long, lazy days of summer may be seriously messing with your baby or toddler’s inner sleep clock. Over the summer, many babies start crying at bedtime and resisting sleep even more than usual. It’s also common for toddlers to stop staying in bed and falling asleep much later, trying to tell you, “I’m not tired!” So frustrating – but not really unexpected, if you think about it. The sun goes down so late these days, and since your baby or toddler can’t exactly read the…

    For many of the exhausted families with whom we work, night weaning and sleep training are both high on the list of priorities. After all, constant night feeds can exhaust even the strongest parents, and a baby who can’t fall asleep independently is one who will wake too early from a nap, or wake during the night due to sleep associations, and not out of true hunger. So yeah…when it comes to night weaning and sleep training, most parents would say, “Both, please!”. But this raises an interesting question – should one come before the other?

    Remember the ’80s cartoon He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? I haven’t yet found any ’80s babies named after He-Man, but I’ve found a bunch with names inspired by Teela and She-Ra — two other popular characters from the Masters of the Universe franchise. He-Man premiered on TV in 1983. The main female character was Teela — daughter of the Sorceress, foster-daughter of Man-At-Arms, and protector/friend of Prince Adam (a.k.a. He-Man). In 1984, usage of the baby name Teela spiked high enough for the name to reach the top 1,000 for the first and only time:…

    In 1916, the London Globe mentioned twins named Jere and Miah: There lived for many years in the village of Twerton, Bath, one named Miah. He was born a twin, and his parents thriftily divided the predestined name of Jeremiah between them, the other babe being christened Jere. What other names could we divide into two usable mini-names like this? Here are a few ideas to kick things off… Abigail, Abi + Gail Anastasia, Ana + Stasia Calista, Cal + Ista Drusilla, Dru + Silla Elizabeth, Eliza + Beth Mozelle, Mo + Zelle Valentina, Valen + Tina Alexander, Alex + Ander Christopher, Chris +…
  • California “Parental Naming Rights” Bill Stalls Out

    25 Jun 2015 | 2:00 am
    The aim of California’s Assembly Bill No. 2528, which was introduced Assemblymember Nancy Skinner in early 2014, was to force the state to add diacritical marks to birth certificates and other state-issued identity documents: From the text of the bill: This bill would require the State Registrar to ensure that diacritical marks on English letters are properly recorded on all certificates of live birth, fetal death, or death, and all marriage licenses, including, but not limited to, accents, tildes, graves, umlauts, and cedillas. The bill was supported by many, including Professor…

    Latest Updates from Stroller-Envy | Best Baby Strollers Blog

  • Updated Baby Trend Expedition Review

    11 Jun 2015 | 6:37 am
    This is a great stroller for taking brisk walks in the park and while it is the most basic model of the Baby Trend 3-wheelers, it is also the most popular. Parents recommend the Expedition for the affordable price and the sporty look. Most parents who get this stroller are not serious runners or avid joggers, but they do like getting out for brisk walks. The swivel feature on the front tire is a must for maneuverability, but for those who do prefer to jog, then the front tire can lock straight for stability during the ride. The Expedition is also popular as a travel system. The Expedition has…
  • Kolcraft All Terrain Adventure Stroller Review

    2 Jun 2015 | 6:41 am
    As you might know, Jeep strollers are no more, but the exciting news is that Kolcraft has taken the same product and improved on it. This particular stroller used to be the Jeep Liberty, but the Jeep brand, owned by Kolcraft, was discontinued. Kolcraft has decided to move these products over to their brand and improve upon the performance by adding precision ball bearings and better wheels for superior performance. Because this is a new product there are little to no reviews as of the time of this writing. The reviews and research for you here are based on the classic Jeep Liberty, but with…
  • Kolcraft Replaces Jeep Strollers

    11 May 2015 | 9:44 am
    Jeep strollers are no more! I loved the Jeep brand for strollers, and the main stroller I used with my son is the classic Jeep Liberty all terrain three-wheeler. Yes, I'm partial because I used it for my own baby. Now they are gone. But their design remains, and Kolcraft, the company who owned the Jeep brand, has basically renamed the Jeep strollers and added a few more features, and taken away some. For example, the nifty little cargo bags mounted on the sides of the Liberty, Cherokee and Wrangler models (I'd keep a diaper or two in mine) are not included with the new Kolcraft versions.

    27 Apr 2015 | 8:10 pm
    The twin strollers page is updated with the latest side-by-side double strollers for 2015. Two brands have released new strollers that I'm really excited to share with you and best of all, they are each under $300! The first is the Combi Fold N Go Double stroller (pictured). This is one of the sleekest looking strollers I've seen Combi come out with and it is being met with really good reviews for the light weight (21 pounds!) and large basket beneath the seat. I love the brown color, and the black and red look equally as good. It has a compact, flat fold and you can even carry it under your…
  • Double All Terrain Stroller Changes

    20 Apr 2015 | 8:43 am
    One of the positive things about getting Stroller Envy mobile ready is updating all this information. It is important that you have the latest research and reviews, not to mention the best selection of strollers. The All Terrain Double Stroller page has now been updated and I took out one stroller I thought for sure I'd keep. The new Mountain Buggy Duet. The latest model had gotten a bad review, however, there are only a couple of reviews so far, and that means the bad review carries a lot more weight. The older version of this stroller has 5 stars! So I'm taking a "wait and see"…

    I know I’m usually a cool monochrome and minimal person but there is one colour trend that I am feeling very drawn to especially for a kids room or a nursery.  Extra bright or neon type colours can feel too overpowering for me so if I was going for a colourful kids room it would have to be beautiful soft pastel shades.  Pastel shades work so well for babies, boys or girls and they can even work for a shared unisex room.  The colours are soft and calming and that should help the kids sleep better (ok that maybe me being over optimistic!). Thinking about pastel kids rooms I went…

    Colour blocking is a trend that’s been around for ages and it’s thankfully not going nowhere.  It’s such a simple way to add so much style to a look.  Especially if you’re more of a minimalist and don’t want busy prints and patterns, a simple colour block dress or skirt is the answer.  Just like that blue and white shirt dress that pops so much more than if it was plain blue or plain white.  You can create your own look too by pairing two solid colours together.  I’m loving the colour block look for mums and babies and definitely will be wearing…

    By Diana Julian, certified child sleep consultant and owner of Big Sky Lullaby Sleep Consulting If you are a parent of a high need child, I don’t have to tell you that when your child is tired their challenging temperament becomes even more challenging. This is because they are more sensitive to stimulation, so if their body needs to sleep and they are being stimulated it will cause extreme overtired behavior. This can have a snowball effect and turn into a chronic sleep deficit. The good news is this can be turned around. How to Reverse a Chronic Sleep Deficit Establishing healthy sleep…

    As a parent, I’m always looking for new items that keep my baby busy.

And, with excitement: whenever he sees these devices his face lights up and his hands grasp for the objects.

There will be approximately 1.5 million of these jobs available, but only about 500,000 graduates to fill them.  Now,…

    I’ve always considered myself a prepared, organized person. As a child, I made sure my bedroom was always clean and lined my stuffed animals in color order. In high school, I always had my projects completed a week in advance. As an adult, my bills are always paid on time (in fact, paid before their due date) and in case of a weather emergency, my pantry is always filled with bottles of water, batteries, candles, and cans of food. So, when I first became pregnant, I thought to myself; “Parenthood is going to be a snap!” I was overly cocky that I knew everything there was to know about…

    Very exciting day today as our 5-year-old swam by himself for the first time! Our house is brimming with swimming paraphernalia - armbands, swim vests, floats, noodles - but as of today our eldest can forget about them.
