Super Deal on Britax Roundabout

May 10, 2008

At 5 months old, Enzo decided he no longer liked car rides. He got mad every time I tried to buckle him up. Then I realized the car seat was tiny even though it was supposed to last through the first year. Enzo is in the 80th percentile for weight and 90th for height. His legs dangle off of his infant car seat and his shoulders could barely be smashed in. After talking to several friends, searching the web, and checking consumer reports, I decided the Britax Roundabout was the car seat I wanted.

Once I knew what I wanted, I began the search for the cheapest one. I found a range of prices from $250 to $189. Being quiet thrifty since having a baby, I was determined to find one cheaper. Then, I found BabyAge. For $149 and free shipping with a coupon code, I got my Britax Roundabout. The only catch was they all came with a college logo. There was about 8 to choice from and I had not ties to any of them. So I picked Arizona because the car seat was a pretty blue and only an “A” and said Wildcats.

Mobiles Rock!

December 29, 2007

I have the best baby in the world. He rarely cries, and when he does, he needs something. So, when he started to get fussy every night about 6 or 7 pm, I was thinking maybe it was a growth spurt. I read online ways to sooth fussy babies and found a list of 11 things to do. I started to go down the list one by one. I held him, bounced, danced, sang, and rocked. Then, it said to entertain him. What entertains a 6 week old? A Tiny Love Symphony-in-Motion Mobile. Enzo has been sleeping in the room with us and never gets to play in his crib. So, when I laid him down and turned on the mobile, he was amazed. He stopped crying and began to make his adorable happy sounds.

Manly Diaper Bags

September 11, 2007

My husband sent me a like to this awesome diaper bag. It is made by Diaper Dude. I registered for one at BabiesRUs, but they don’t carry it in the stories. This is a problem because many people in my family do not feel comfortable ordering things online, and they already told me they would just buy what they can find in stores. I really want one, and I hope someone decided it is cute enough to order.

Most of the diaper bags I found are very girly, and many look like a purse. If you are having a boy or your husband is every going to carry the bag, then the Diaper Dude bags are perfect. They have masculine colors and styling but still functional.
