Many parts of the country are experiencing a deep freeze right now. If you have a newborn you want to bundle them up, but it might be difficult at night. Blankets can be dangerous at night. This HALO SleepSack is a safer alternative. The sleeveless design reduces the risk of overheating and unzips from the bottom for easy diaper changes. The generous sack design allows room for kicking, but can't be kicked off during the night. That means a great night for both of you!

You know that awful feeling you get when you open a backpack and there's no lunch box in there? Ugh. It can be tough to find the right lunch box off season. It seems stores only stock them two times a year: Back to School and Back to Camp. That's when the internet really comes in handy. This Dr. Seuss Lunch Box is fun and super functional. It has an interior mesh pocket and insulated moveable dividers. Best of all the handle has removable velcro so you can attach it to the handle of any backpack. There will be no way this lunch bag will get lost!!

While celebrating New Year's Eve with another family yesterday, I was reminded of my least favorite phase of early childhood. This couple's 14 month old daughter was attempting to walk and climb all over the place. She had the bumps and bruises to show it! As parents we try to protect our children as much as possible, but let's be honest. We've all had those times we couldn't make the catch before the tumble. If you need to add some extra padding to your home, start with this Mommys Helper Soft Edge Guard. They are easy to install and protect your little mover from sharp or hard edges. They are also lead and phosphate free. You know, in case your toddler is a nibbler too.
