Does anyone know how I can get between the Mexico City airport and downtown without lugging a car seat on this vacation? I’ll have no other use for it while there.
This place is now Shuka (same owners but now totally different) and it’s fantastic. Really nice place with great brunch scene but they were SO nice to me with the baby. Several of the staff came over to meet him after they heard about it, they kept checking in, and they said goodbye to him by name on the way out. Such good food — I’d go back for any meal.
I have a pair of adult shoes from this online brand and I think the kids’ version, just launched today, is adorable! But my impression was that early walkers need to be professionally fitted for shoes? And is it okay support-wise that the upper on these is all wool and therefore fairly unstructured? https://flipboard.com/article/allbirds-launches-a-kids-shoe-line-called-smallbirds/a-98tk5WXZRGu...

My almost 10-month-old has about 8 front teeth, which I recently started trying to "brush" with one of those silicone finger mitts from Nuk. It seems ineffective and my son doesn't let me do it for long without screaming. Does anyone recommend a different finger brush or a different device altogether or have tips?
You might not think such a pretty restaurant known - rightly so - for its outstanding food would be a good spot for kids. But the staff gave me a great table, were super-friendly, and immediately offered a plastic cup and high chair (which I wouldn't even have thought they have). I wouldn't say it's a great place for a screaming baby, but it's definitely more kid-friendly than meets the eye.
I make a lot of food for my baby and share with him what I eat, but I need to supplement with some "off-the-shelf" options. I'm looking at the organic fruit/veggie pouches and jars and they all seem like smooth purées. My son can handle chunkier food and I'd like him to have that. Can you recommend any brands?
I want to make a birthday card for our nanny that's "from" my son so I thought it would be cute to decorate it with his fingerprints or handprints. What kind of ink could I safely use for this? Hopefully something I can buy on my way home tonight because her birthday's tomorrow! Any other ideas? "We" are also making some baked goods I know she likes and giving a birthday bonus.
When do I need to worry about my insanely strong and active son climbing out of his crib? He's 8 mos old and can pull himself up (though hasn't yet done it yet in the crib). Do we have to lower the mattress now? Related: Once mattress is lowered, how do you pick up the baby from lying down to take him out of the crib without killing your back??
I've found Pampers baby-dry to be so much better than Pampers swaddlers. But now we're at size 4 and I see Pampers cruisers are an option. Just wondering whether my babe will withstand a wet diaper overnight as well as he does with the baby-dry version? When did you switch? (I'd prefer to stick with one kind of diaper rather than daytime/nighttime IF you think it's possible.)
For those of you who go on long-ish day trips with your babies, how do you handle bed time? My 6-month-old just starting going to sleep for ~12 hours around 8:30 PM. I'm not inclined to rush home by then, but my husband is b/c he doesn't want to mess up the "routine". Do you just move baby from car seat to crib? Any success stories/tips I can use to negotiate with my husband? ... More
Hi everyone, my son is 5.5 mos old and his enjoying some tastes of food but we're gearing up for the real integration of solids next month. So far, I ordered the Stokke Steps high chair (anyone love/hate while it's still returnable?) and a baby spoon. Are there any other MUST-haves for this phase? We live in an NYC apartment and I don't like to have extra stuff around if it's no... More
They have a great assortment of glasses for kids and even for babies. Very knowledgeable about brands and styles that will be appropriate, and creative with the psychology of getting kids to warm to glasses. They'll also do additional research to help you get the right product and secure insurance coverage.
I took baby for early happy hour when I needed to get out and get some work done (don't judge!). They welcomed the stroller and didn't eye-roll at the fussing when he woke up. Then he sat on my lap for a while while I finished up and everyone was really friendly. Not crowded early evenings and there are great places to sit near the big, open windows.
They take reservations and the space is largest enough that there are many. The biggest selling point for me is they'll guarantee being able to keep one stroller at the table and they'll note if you want to keep two and do their best to accommodate (which they did for me, even offering two different tables from which to choose).
