Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

Halo Sleepsack deal today from kids.woot! They only have small and medium sizes right now. Great pricing if you are in need of fleece sacks.

From my previous blog post on Halo Sleepsacks:

These would make a wonderful gift for a baby shower or for an infant..Keep your baby snuggly warm at night and safe from loose blankets in bed which is a major risk factor for SIDs (sudden infant death).

My son slept in a Halo sleepsack during every nap and at night as soon as we stopped swaddling him. He loves his sleep sacks to this day and finds it a very comforting part of his nighttime routine. Best of all, I never worry about him kicking off his blankets even now as a 3 year old. (Halo makes a Big Kids version and also an Early Walker version.) https://www.halosleep.com/

For future reference, you can sometimes find these on sale at Babies R Us and Target.com. Walmart.com also sells Halo Sleepsacks which can be ordered site to store for free shipping. Outside of the occasional woot deal, I have also found them for a good price at Kohls.com which if you can combine it with a sale and stack online coupons for free shipping plus a 15, 20 or 30% off coupon.

Highly recommended for all infants and toddlers.

JJ Cole Bundle Me set $24.99 Today only! December 22, 2011

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

Great price for JJ Cole Bundle Me from kids.woot for either the infant cover and hat set or the toddler size cover. I loved the lighter version I had for my son. It was great for the car seat or stroller to keep my son toasty warm without the bulkiness of a jacket or fussing with tucking layers of blankets in the carrier.

If I had lived in a colder area part of the Bay Area, I would have gotten this one instead. This is about 50% off the retail price. I love the cozy shearling lining and the therma plush exterior. It is so easy to just unzip them when they get warm or to get them out without fussing with the car seat straps. At this price, I think I would even buy an extra toddler set to use in the stroller for walks and leaving another one in the car.

Highly recommended for babies and toddlers living in areas with cold winters or chilly summers like in San Francisco.

Booginhead SippiGrip October 14, 2011

Amazon.com: Booginhead SippiGrip, Black: Baby.

Don’t you hate it when your toddler decides it is really fun to throw his lovey or sippy cup on the ground making you make it up over and over again? It is the quickest way the 3 feet under crowd can drive you nutty in less than 5 minutes. Even worse, trying to disinfect that when it hit the ground or a grungy restaurant floor. Ick!

I love this product so much, I got 4 of them and stashed them everywhere: at home, diaper bag, in the stroller storage pocket, and grandma’s house. No more bending over to pick up cups tossed to the side. The straps are adjustable on both ends so it fits everything. This was especially handy on outings like the park, museum and amusement parks. No more wondering where in the world did M toss that sippy cup because it is literally chained to the stroller.

Highly recommended for use with toddlers. I bought mine at Babies R Us.

Go-Go Babyz Kidz Travelmate October 3, 2011

Amazon.com: Go-Go Babyz Kidz Travelmate: Baby.

Just coming back after more than a week offline. I was off vacationing in Maui (will definitely blog about that later) with my family for a much needed break. I thought I would start off my latest blog entry to give a shout out for the Go-Go Babz Kidz Travelmate. This product rocks! Having used both this and the Sit and Stroll ($249), my props go for the Travelmate which is considerably cheaper. You might balk a little at the price $72, but it is well worth it if you travel by air with your own car seat. Who wants to rent a car seat of questionable cleanliness or quality?

The Travelmate made traversing a crowded airport on Saturday an absolute breeze. I can not tell you how many parents and grandparents commented on the Travelmate as we strolled on by at a pretty fast clip which would make racing to make a transfer so easy. It was a piece of cake for me to push the Travelmate and pull a carry-on* behind me. Even with a heavy car seat like a Sunshine Kids Radian with the steel reinforcement,  the wheels and set up make the ride very smooth and lightweight. There were quite a number of dads and a few moms that were pretty envious trying to corral their babies/toddlers, strollers and car seats through security and the airport.

I didn’t realize how handy this was going to be until our return flight from Maui which was delayed 7 hours which turned a 9 pm arrival to a 2:30 am ordeal. He did not fall asleep until 10 minutes before landing after crying and screaming for what seemed like eons. P lifted M fast asleep in his car seat and carried him right off the plane. We set the car seat down and released the handle which telescopes to different heights which makes it really great for the tallest or shortest of parents. We literally strolled away to baggage claim past many families of very tired parents with exhausted little ones that were woken up to deplane. They had to wait for their gate checked strollers and car seats (Tip: Always buy FAA compliant car seats to ensure your car seat will fit) to arrive. P left in the airport shuttle to get our car. It was really great to be able to remove the Travelmate and install the seat right into the car without waking M up.

I highly (continually since 2006) recommend to any parent (or grandparent to gift) that plans on doing any plane travel. I promise that if you once you use it on a trip, you will find that it was worth every penny. You could also ditch the entire stroller and just go with this and a carrier. I know people that have opted to just drop by the local Walmart to buy their super cheap ($15) umbrella stroller at their destination which they would just donate/leave behind.

*Travel Tip: Why do I travel with a carry-on bag? I always travel with a least one full set of clothes, and any absolute necessities for babies/toddlers/kids like enough diapers, formula, bottles, food, and clothes to get me and the family through 24 to 36 hours if the unfortunate event I get stranded, experience a flight delay, get trapped on a plane sitting on a runway or if my baggage fails to arrive at my destination. You never know what might go wrong en route to your destination and whether or not you can find a store that is going to be open or easily accessible where you end up.

 

Great Trade-In Event – Babies “R” Us August 26, 2011

Great Trade-In Event – Babies “R” Us.

Just noticed that Babies R Us is having their trade-in event until 9/18 this year. You can trade in any used car seat, stroller, travel system, high chair, play yard, bassinet, walker, infant swing, bouncer, entertainer, crib or kid’s bed and get 25% off a new one. No limit on trade-in and you can purchase items from a different category than your trade-in.

I have used this deal in the past to trade-in expired car seats, broken high chairs, and old cribs that have been gathering dust. Great way to get rid of this stuff and get something that I need in exchange. Keep in mind that the 25% vouchers must be used during the trade-in period. So, you won’t be able to rain-check anything if what you want to get is no longer in stock. So, it is a good idea to trade-in earlier in case to allow extra time in case they have to get your item in from the distribution center. Usually, your local BRUS gets inventory shipments in once a week. For example, the Union City location gets new stock on Tuesdays.
