Looking for any tips, tricks or advice... my very potty trained 4 year old has been having quite a few accidents lately. He gets too excited or focused on things and either forgets, or outright refuses to acknowledge that he has to go and then by the time it’s dire, there’s no time and he doesn’t make it to the bathroom. We’ll pick up on his mannerisms and recognize that he has to go and try to... More
We are needing to replace our Maclaren Triumph stroller. It has basically been used every day for 3 years, through all NYC seasons, on sidewalks, the subway, parks, and everything in between. As much as the stroller has been quite good to us, I had thought that maybe we would look and see what else is out there.

If I bring him downstairs and set him down, he... More

This week, we will need to start supplementing with formula (I confirmed with his pediatrician who doesn’t want us to go whole milk until we actually hit 1 year mark). So we thought we’d take the opportunity to start him on it over the weekend to make sure that he liked. We did the... More
Any pumping mamas out there have a favorite “on the go” pump they can recommend? I have a Spectra 2 at home and a Medela PISA for work, but I am going to be traveling by air quite a bit in the near future and am looking for something a little more portable. Battery powered would be even better! Thanks!
