Review: Wild Slings Jardin Secret

Wild Slings Jardin Secret • 50% organic Pima cotton and 50% organic Egyptian cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I have no words. This wrap is SO soft. Like blanket soft. Like I didn’t want to send it off soft. It completely surprised me. This completely gorgeous wrap is Wild Slings Jardin Secret. It has flowers, birds and even a little snail on it. The snail is my favorite. This wrap is soft and pretty thick. It was wondrous on my shoulders. I didn’t have to worry…

Review: Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium

Lolly Wovens Heron Anturium • 80% Cotton, 20% microtencel • $ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all I was chosen to host one of Lolly Wovens American testers and I was eager to check it out. I’ve only seen the company on Facebook – they have giveaways, and I was curious to check them out.

Review: Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2

Emmeline Textiles Juno Squares V2 • 100% cotton • $$ • Machine woven • Support: Average • Best for: Any Age • Carries: Great with all! I received Emmeline Textiles’ Juno Squares Version 2 in the traveler program and I was excited to try it out. Their program has a lot of options for caregivers to check out all kinds of wraps. I haven’t played with Juno Squares yet, so I wanted to play around a bit. Juno Squares V2 is a thin wrap. Very thin – but not in a bad way. I wouldn’t consider the shoulders to be…

Celebrating Chinese New Year

The Lunar New Year is one of my favorite holidays. I love the family getting together and huge meals. I also look forward to the Chinese New Year Parade that happens every year in the city. Even Birdie’s school does a little something for it. Last year was a huge assembly. This year, we did a parade. It was a lot of fun. Cold and wet – but we made it work. I’ve been wearing Poppet Slings’ Soho ring sling during the festivities because it’s he perfect shade of red. I make sure the kids are always wearing red –…

10 Must Haves for an Infant

I did a list for your hospital bag, newborn and new mom, so I figured I needed to a list for an infant. There are so many things that an infant needs, that a newborn doesn’t necessarily need. These are my top ten that I’ve been using the most. Dock-a-Tot – Are we surprised this is still on my list? Dumpling loves ours. We even take it on road trips. We put it into the little bag that it came with and we travel with it.   ErgoBaby – A soft structured baby carrier. I use a baby carrier since…

  • Bring me back to Christmas Day dinner 🍴 I wish I could have some lobster tails 🦞 almost every day. This was such an awesome meal. ⁣

What do you eat when you celebrate for different holidays?  We do ham on Easter, turkey on Thanksgiving, and callaloo for New Years. I can’t wait for Chinese New Year - that’s my favorite meal 🧧 ⁣

The older kids got electric scooters for Christmas🎄 but haven’t been able to take them out because of the rain. Now we are going out multiple times a day. It’s good exercise. No major injuries, yet. ⁣
