The DRIA Nursing Cover: Not Just for Nursing


nursing_mainThere is a very popular creative writing technique which coming up with answers to the following question: “what are 50 different uses for a brick?” Apparently the creator of the DRIA Cover thought along this line when creating their product. In other words, “how do I create a cloth that has multiple uses to it?” And guess what?! She nailed it! Read the rest of this entry

Holiday Shopping: Fun Baby Toys from Bright Starts


kidsii-table-11838288-02If you have a baby at home, come holiday time – you have it easy! You don’t have to purchase holiday toys from a list your child made, or because of your child’s constant nagging (I want a doll, can you buy me a doll? dolls are my favorite, I don’t have many dolls, I don’t have enough dolls, etc.) As a mom of an infant you have the freedom to buy anything you want and Bright Starts’ “Having a Ball” collection is a good place to start.

Get Ready For Winter With 7 A.M. Enfant Accessories


Having recently delivered a baby, I was less than thrilled to find out the predictions for this coming winter: more severe weather with more snow than usual. I live in a city so walking is my main means of transportation during the week when I pick up my kids, go to the grocery store or anywhere else I might be going – and I go out in any type of weather. With all of my outings I need to be prepared this winter to protect a very young infant from the likely possibility of harsh weather. Luckily, 7 A.M. Enfant has great-quality and stylish winter gear to keep your kids warm and toasty! Read the rest of this entry

Fit Everything But the Kitchen Sink In the Dadgear Backpack Diaperbag


Although I love diaper bags that look like stylish pocketbooks I know I will never use one. What can I say, I’m a practical person. For me, a diaper bag should be two things: 1. Roomy enough to store everything you want to take and 2. Comfortable enough so that both your shoulders can carry the heavy load equally. This is why a backpack diaper bag is the only way to go, in my opinion. The Dadgear backpack diaper bag is both comfortable to carry and has tons of room for over-packers like myself.

First things first: I love that there are so many compartments – 13 total! There’s even a small compartment on top that’s perfect for diapers, called a diaper hammock – I actually use it for dirty diapers (wrapped in plastic bags, of course).

We took the diaper bag for a day out when we knew we’d be out from 8am until 10pm. Due to the mesh pockets being so wide and all the other compartments and pockets so generous in depth, we were able to store tons of diapers, water bottles, snacks, clothes, stuffed animals and other miscellaneous items without feeling like the diaper bag was exceeding its limits.

The diaper bag has two insulated side pockets for bottles and comes with a changing pad and a wipes case. Another feature is a specially designed window for the wipes case that allows you to dispense wipes. We haven’t used it yet – we’ve been using the wipes directly from the case.

In terms of comfort, the diaper bag has straps that are very comfortable so if you want to take it for a long hike you certainly can. We also love that it comes in so many different colors, such as black, blue, red, pink, orange, green and more!

The Backpack diaper bag is sturdy, practical, comfortable and roomy – exactly what every parent needs to make their life on-the-go a little easier.

You can purchase the backpack diaper bag here. Price is $89.

I was not compensated for this post. I received a diaper bag for review purposes.
