Loving that they are Eco-friendly, made in the US, and made with Organic wood!

Then you must check out the 2014 Inglesina Classica Pram!

With a preview from the opening show at the Sochi Olympics, I was truly impressed. From the classic handcrafted design of chrome
parts, to the bassinet, this Pram took my breath away!

The body is slender versus the original width, as well as the easy to fold & store system is perfect for storage. It comes in Marina (blue), Betulla (light grey & white), Pesca (pink & white), and Nappa (navy blue & white) colors, along with sturdy fabric.

The Inglesina Pram can be used from birth up to 36 months, and it is like a portable crib on the go! ~ LOVE this!

As I have mentioned in previous blogs, the importance of having your child nap in different places makes them more adaptable!

My favorite features are the 2 position backrest, perfect for nap time or for babies to enjoy their surroundings while sitting up. The signature Pram bouncing motion would put any baby to sleep, as well as calm them down, due to the natural motion as in utero.

The interior of the bassinet has a removable lining to block the sun, & is removable to detach for cleaning.

Also included is a detachable insulted diaper bag & changing pad, which is fab for city or suburban moms on the go!

The two must have accessories that are sold separately are the matching parasol umbrella, & plastic rain cover, perfect for storing underneath!

Having a Pram is not for all lifestyles, but those who have them, have them for future generations!

Take it from a Mom & younger brother were, “Pram worthy” in the 70’s, lol!

Glass or plastic bottles? Want to know my faves & fab advice?

image

There are so many opinions when it comes bottles.

As a mother of two I have learned from experience and research, that glass is best.

It is important to make sure that the bottles you select are lead, PVC, BPA, Phthalates, & Polycarbonate Free.

A few of my fave glass bottles are from Munchkin, Born Free, Evenflo & Lifefactory.

One of my words of advice, is to purchase a bottle warmer from Advent, which has a dial control. I love this feature because it makes heating breast milk or formula in a snap!

If you are home, keep enough water in the base and set the temperature to one. Heating a bottle will be easier, when your little one is hungry, versus on demand.

As I have done my research of glass and plastic, do your homework, for mother knows best!

Glass retains more heat, and some forms of plastic when heated can emit toxins which is scary!

Although glass bottles are heavier, there are so many choices out there, so find one that is just right. ~Love Lifefactory’s silicone sleeve to prevent breakage!

Want to nurse, feed your baby a bottle or do a diaper change with ease while shopping?

Then head to the nearest dressing room either at the mall, or while shopping in the city.

When our children were born, I use to go out with them all of the time, & found that there weren’t too many areas to feed or change them comfortably.

One day while shopping at Nordstrom, I was in the dressing room with my son who needed to be fed, & I came up with his technique.

I fed & changed his diaper with ease in a stress free way! No more sweating sitting on a chair, or nervous how I was going to find a comfortable spot to nurse him.

In my stroller I kept a ziplock with Chuck pads (found at medical supply stores), which are disposable pads to make the changing area sanitary, as well as diaper bags, & a travel size Lysol spray.

Walking around the city to find a spot can be tricky or cramped, so any store will do.

My faves… department stores, & children’s stores have larger dressing rooms FYI, while on the go!

Baby Gap, Gap, & Pottery Barn Kids have a bathroom in the store which most people don’t know about!

Enjoy feeding & changing in peace!

Want a great way to keep dry from infant to adult this Summer?

Then purchase a box of Organic Rapunzle Cornstarch powder!

This week our area has been in the high 90’s, which can do a number on your skin.

From prickly heat, to sweat, or even a rash, dusting your body with cornstarch can relieve those symptoms naturally!

The other day I met a mother whose baby was in a diaper in his stroller. I gave her my tip of dusting under her son’s neck, underarms, diaper area, back of his neck & back to prevent a rash.

Cornstarch is unscented, inexpensive, as well as a natural way to stay cool!

I would purchase small travel bottles in the travel section in your market for the entire family to use! (Great for your diaper bag too!)

I found Rapunzle Corn Starch on Amazon for under $3, & all health food stores carry this product as well.

Enjoy this fab tip!
