Best stroller blanket for any weather

I enjoy running, and often take my little one with me in the stroller on my runs.  The Bumkins Waterproof Stroller Blanket is one of the best stroller blankets that I have used and is effective in cold, rain, snow, wind, or any other type of blustery weather that you encounter. The elastic band that runs at the top and bottom of the blanket help to keep your little one bundled up without the chance of the blanket flapping up in the wind or when he or she decides to start kicking to pass time in the stroller.  The Bumkins blanket has four easy to use velcro straps that affix to any type of stroller, including umbrella or jogging strollers. Other blankets often use clips to a ...

Tubby Table- Bathtime Fun For Toddlers

Halloween Costumes Should be Scary -- Not Nighttime Drivers
If your kids are like mine, they're eagerly counting down the days to Halloween, anticipating all that candy they'll be collecting as they go door to door.  As a parent, though, you may be a little (or a lot!) concerned about how dark it gets before trick-or-treating hours are over, and how many streets are crossed during the annual candy crusade. 

Trick or treating at night poses a very real danger to kids who might not be seen by drivers as they dart from house to house.  Many people believe wearing light-colored clothing is enough to make pedestrians visible to drivers, but even if children are d ...
