ERGObaby performance carrier back pack

  What? Another baby carrier? Having already written and raved about the Baby Bjorn (), one must wonder why in the world we would need another baby carrier. But in the case of the baby carrier, our daughter simply outgrew the Baby Bjorn as it maxed out at 26 lbs / 19 kgs, or about…

One of the biggest players in the parenting section of the Offspring Industrial Complex is the “What To Expect…” series of books. It’s pretty much impossible to avoid as a first-time parent and doing so would probably be declared reckless and stubborn.
