Graco's Quattro Tour Duo Double Stroller

When I found out that I was pregnant with my second baby I immediately started shopping for double strollers.  I love strollers.  I love researching strollers and I love buying strollers.  As a mom of two and a daycare provider I have now owned 8 different strollers.  And you know what?  I have loved buying and using all of them.  I guess I have a thing for strollers... 

The Graco Quattro Tour Duo double stroller was an obvious choice for me after doing a bit of research because:  It was a brand that I knew and trusted, it had good reviews (yes, I do my research and read LOTS of reviews before committing to a product) and it possessed many of the features that were important to me as a soon to be mom of two.  You can find this stroller online and at major baby product retailers for between $210 and $260.

The Boppy vs My Brest Friend - Which Nursing Pillow is Right for You?

Here I hope to give a little information on how each nursing support pillow has worked for me in order to help you make an informed decision as to which one you may want to consider purchasing.

The Boppy
With my first baby, this was the only nursing support pillow that I'd tried and I loved it (and still do).  It is simply a "U" shaped pillow that hugs you around your waist and supports your baby to make nursing more comfortable for you and him or her.  It can be purchased for around $25-$30.  You can also buy covers that zip over it for anywhere from $10-25 a piece.  These come in handy as spit up and leaky diapers (yuck!) often soil your boppy while feeding your baby and it's much easier to remove these and wash them rather than having to wash the entire pillow each time.  The pillow itself is, however, machine washable, should you need to do so.

Summer Infant's BabyTouch Color Video Monitor

In my search for a new digital video monitor this past year I purchased and returned quite a few models before deciding that Summer Infant's BabyTouch Color Video Monitor was the best on the market right now.  I have been extremely happy with it so far and have used it countless hours in the last 9 months.

The BabyTouch Color Video Monitor can be found online and at major baby product retailers such as Babies R Us and Target for around $240.  For this price you get the handheld monitoring device and one color video camera.  You can add up to 3 more additional cameras that you sync with the handheld monitor for approximately $90 each.  It is a digital system with great video clarity and clear sound compared to other comparable systems on the market.

The BabyBjorn Babysitter Balance

After having used quite a few different infant bouncy chairs, the BabyBjorn Babysitter is by far the best I've used and can be utilized far longer than any other bouncy chair out there. I love it!

An Awesome Chair for Baby
The Babysitter Balance is a chair meant to be used from the time your child is a newborn through toddlerhood.  It folds flat (4" high) and is very lightweight so it is easily transportable.  It has three different height settings - your baby can be laying practically flat or when she is older she can be close to vertical to see what everyone's doing around her.

Wearing Baby: The ERGObaby

After doing a lot of research I decided to buy the ERGObaby when my second baby was about 3 months old. I am so glad I did, it is an awesome carrier and is so comfortable!

The ERGObaby is a baby carrier that is designed to enable you to comfortably carry babies/toddlers from the time they are newborns through 45 pounds. It is available in many fashionable colors as well as organic materials. It's so incredibly comfortable for babies and mom and dad that it really lives up to his name!
