A recent day out with friends made me realize how important it is to have plenty of bottles on hand. A baby without his bottle can be a frightening event. You can ensure you have enough bottles if you get yourself this Philips AVENT Classic Essentials Set. It includes (2) 9 ounce bottles and (2) 4 ounce bottles, a bottle brush, formula dispenser, pacifier, trainer cup, and express microwave sterilizer. You might not need all of these items on a road trip, but when you do need them, you will be glad you have them.

"Mom, I'm bored!" There's a sentence that will cause most moms to shudder. Of course, it's usually shouted with a whining tone to make matters worse.

The large shingled roof is perfect for shaded play. The ladder and slide are a safe 19 inches high and sturdy enough for a wobbly toddler.

They are soft, flexible and durable. That's means your baby will love them as much as you do.

Isn't it awesome when baby moves from infancy to toddlerhood? In some ways, things get a lot easier and gear gets a lot lighter. Take your stroller, for example. Once baby is about 9 months old, you can forgo the cumbersome infant travel system for a more lightweight stroller. Look at the advantages of this Delta DX Stroller. It's brightly colored and has a lightweight frame that folds easily for storage and travel. It's not just great looking. The stroller has 360 degree shock absorbing front wheels, multiple position recline and a 3 point safety harness. There's even a parent cup holder for coffee or tea, in case you've had a sleepless night or two. Sorry, there's no great baby gear for that problem.
