Using Less Plastic

I am on a mission to lessen our use of plastic. Especially for the children. And especially for things that end up in their mouths (which is most things they come into contact with). It’s a health thing for me, but there are of course environmental aspects as well. I’m not going crazy with this [...]

Great Maternity Finds from TopShop

Unprecedented! I recently ordered a few maternity pieces from TopShop, hoping, but not expecting, that they would arrive before our little trip to Spain.

So by the time we got this far in our double stroller search, and started trying the strollers for real, it was really down to the Baby Jogger City Select, and the Bugaboo Donkey for us. Both of these stroller fulfilled all of our criteria, and they were really the only ones that did since [...]
