PASS: Fisher-Price Rainforest crib mobile review – doesn’t make calls though

[singlepic id=14 w=320 h=240 float=left]The first time I looked over a list of baby “must-haves”, I was really confused as to the need for a mobile for the crib. I just couldn’t figure out why you need a phone in there. Was it to hear it crying? Did the baby really need to start texting…

EVA foam floor mats

Ordered off the shelves in parts of Europe; all is quiet in the U.S. I actually love these mats. They were great to give some cushion to a crawling baby or unsteady toddler. I was even going to do a post on these being must-haves. Then a couple weeks ago I received news from family and…

Chickpea ratatouille

We love to introduce new and interesting flavors and textures to our toddler’s palate and, although she’s not old enough to make the connection with the Disney movie (yet), my little munchkin loooves this simple recipe for Ratatouille with Chickpeas. It’s delicious, nutritious and easy to eat …

Amazon Mom…Seriously?


via I think that I was responsible for 100% of the ordering of any products purchased on Amazon and probably 70% of the decision making for baby-related products. The Product Strategy is great… The Product Marketing, however, completely misses..
