Infomercials should be directed at new moms because we’re awake at odd hours and are easily convinced that a single product could be the magical solution to all our problems. It can roast a chicken and melt my love handles while giving me a hug?! I’ll buy 3! Belief in said magic must come from witnessing the miracle of childbirth, or possibly our lack of sleep. Either way I still believe that the Magic Bullet and OxiClean are what Disney World is really run on.
Whether at home or away, these are the products that make parenting just a smidgen easier:
- Babyzen Yoyo Stroller – When I first started seeing this stroller I played hard to get – I was afraid to commit and wanted to keep our relationship casual and open in case something better came along. But who was I kidding, this sexy French pram won my heart and quickly become my one true love, with it’s light but sturdy build and one handed open/close ability. We have so much in common – we both love long walks on the sidewalk and plane rides in the cabin (no gate checking for my pint sized beauty). I’ve since gotten rid of my little black book of other strollers and am now happily married to my one and only Yoyo. We’re excited to announce the addition of a little Babyzen Footmuff to our family…arriving this winter! And for anyone in need of extra sun protection for their stroller check out Sasha’s Kiddie Products.
- Aden + Anais Blanket – This is the Optimus Prime of baby blankets. Before my eyes it transforms from car seat/stroller nap shield, to baby carrier booster seat, to cozy airplane blanket, and finally, to the always fun “oh shit (literally) the baby has no backup outfit” solution.
