Is Your Toddler Too Heavy to Carry?

Our daughter is 18 months old now and honestly, she is getting too heavy to carry all the time. Or at least for an extended period of time. That can make situations tricky, especially being that her little legs tire quickly. I am super excited to get to try the Freeloader!
The Freeloader is the First Child Carrier Built Specifically for Toddlers! It is a new, better child carrier. Compact, lightweight and portable, the Freeloader child carrier uses advanced materials and design to create a better experience for parents who love spending time with their kids. Whether you are traveling by air, going to the zoo, or hiking with your little ones, the Freeloader is ready to help carry the load. When not in use, the Freeloader's integrated aluminum seat folds up neatly to the size of a daypack. The Freeloader is a perfect fit for parents that want a lighter, more versatile carrier. The Freeloader features an easy-to-use, 5-point safety harness. The safety harness is specially designed to fasten securely and safely out-of-reach of your child.

The Freeloader provides wide, ergonomic shoulder and waist straps to evenly distribute your child's weight to your hips and core. The contoured shoulder straps are adjustable and provide extra padding for comfort and support. Padding in the back panel and seat offers extended comfort for your child.
The Freeloader is small enough to carry-on and stows away neatly, making it perfect for air travel, road trips and more! See more at http://www.myfreeloader.com/ and find Freeloader on facebook at Facebook.com/myfreeloader

Starting The Day With Gerber Cereal

This weekend Emma and I took a trip to Target to pick up a few essentials. Being a busy mom, I love the convenience of a store that has everything we need in one place. I also love that I can find everything I need for Emma in the Target baby aisle. On this trip is was the Gerber Cereal we needed,  some fruit purees, my favorite dry shampoo and groceries. Target is my happy place. 

One of my favorite parenting memories with both girls has been starting solids. Even better that my parents were with us for both firsts. We decided to start feeding Emma solids at 5 1/2 months while staying with my parents in California this summer. As a supported sitter, Emma started with infant oatmeal cereal in hopes to help with the severe reflux she was struggling with. In our case medication alone wasn't working. Adding infant cereals like Gerber Oatmeal Cereal has. 

The reason we chose Gerber Cereals was Emma's need for iron. Babies triple their birth weight in the first year and getting proper nutrients is essential. Even with breastfeeding I know she doesn't get everything she needs to support growth and brain development. 1 out of 9 babies are not getting enough iron, that is why the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends feeding your baby iron-rich infant cereal or meat twice a day to meet their daily iron needs.

What I love about Gerber Cereal:

  • Gerber cereals are the #1 source of Iron
  • Super Easy pour spout!
  • 2 servings of Gerber Cereal has 90% of baby's daily iron needs
  • Each nutrient-rich bowl provides a VitaBlocks® blend of six B Vitamins, Vitamins E and C, Iron, Zinc and Calcium for healthy growth and development
  • Non-GMO
  • BPA free packaging


In addition to our shopping trip to Target being quick and convenient, I also saved money on the items I was already purchasing. Gerber Baby cereals were easily found in the baby aisle along with baby foods and diapers. With almost no effort, I also saved 10% on Gerber Cereals using this coupon in the Cartwheel app. If you don't already have Cartwheel and shop at Target, get it here today. Cartwheel is a must have money saving app!

This morning I made Emma her favorite breakfast with the Gerber Oatmeal Cereal we picked up at Target. She loves her Gerber Oatmeal Cereal mixed with Gerber Organics Mango Banana. I add a little formula or water to give it a smooth texture. It is a guaranteed winning baby breakfast in our home. 

With dinner, Gerber Cereals like rice easily mix into vegetable and meat purees. Gerber has a variety of baby cereals that will not only satisfy your baby's tastes but also give you peace of mind as a mom knowing you are giving your healthy and happy baby what she needs to meed her developmental needs.

Try Gerber Cereals for your baby today!

Is Your Child In The Right Car Seat?

b341afef-2150-45f9-b9c4-8011e40a274e For most of us, grabbing our gear and running out to the car and heading to appointments, play dates, work and daycare are a regular every day thing. When we have little ones, we put them in their car seat and buckle them up without a second thought to whether or not they are in the right seat. We trust that they are safe – and we go on our way. Unfortunately, that may not be the case. Every 33 seconds a child under 13 is involved in a car crash in the United States! Car seats, if used correctly, can dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury. But over half of car seats are misused in a way that could reduce their effectiveness and 1 in 3 children killed in car crashes are completely unrestrained at the time of the crash. Can you imagine? Thinking that your child is in the right car seat, only to find out that they aren’t! So what do you choose? Infant, convertible, or booster seat? Finding the right car seat and installing it correctly is no easy task. Then there's the question of when to transition your child to another type of car seat. Step 1 -> Find the right car seat based on:
Step 2 -> Install your car seat correctly
Step 3 -> Register your car seat
Step 4 -> Get recall notifications on your car seat
fd39f709-8ee2-47f3-b425-070c16b74854 Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old. Many times deaths and injuries can be prevented by proper use of car seats, booster seats, and seat belts. By working with the Ad Council and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) we hope to get out a message that will educate parents and caregivers about the importance of selecting the right seat for their child’s age and size, and to remind them that car seats, booster seats and seat belts offer the best protection for children in crashes and help save lives. Get this message out to your friends and family!
