Not Enough Minutes in the Day

Just in case it isn't already obvious to my 4 followers (thanks for sticking with me!), I just can't seem to find the time to post on this blog on a regular basis. Maybe I'll come back to it some time. But, for now, I'm just going to stick to posting on our family blog, The Cranley's Blog. I'll post baby/kids finds on that blog when I come across good ones.

We're not in full sippy mode, but we're getting there. Max drinks all his bottles from the Nuby sippy cup (with the super spout) which I love, but only laying down. Neither Max nor Tessa has quite figured out that they have to tip it. Tessa will drink water from all different types of sippy cups, but won't drink her bottle from one. So far we've tried Playtex and Tommee Tippie. Any suggestions on some other sippy cups that work well for transition from bottle to cup?

Diaper Problem Solved!

We took a trip to BRU this weekend and I was on the hunt for some solution for our leaky diaper issue and I saw these and decided to give them a try. Select Kids Diaper Booster Pads. Basically, it's a maxi-pad for babies that goes right into any kind of diaper. But, it totally works! We've had dry babies/beds every morning since we started to try them. One pack of 30 was around $4.00, but on the BRU website, they have 180 count packs for $19.99. If you are having a leaking diaper problem like we were, I would highly recommend trying these.

Diaper Help!

Max (aka Meaty) is in need of some serious diaper help. He has been wetting through his diaper every night and I don't know what else to try. We've tried bigger diapers, night time diapers, all the different brands and he still manages to get soaked. Anyone else have this problem and/or have suggestions on what to try?

Movin On Up

Our Max, I refer to him as being a little meaty, is ready for the next size up car seat and I have no clue what to get. We're going to buy seats for both Max and Tessa at the same time even though she's not ready thanks to a nice coupon from BRU. But, I need some advice on which convertible car seats are real winners. I am thinking about the Graco 65 or Evenflo Symphony 65. Any advice?

More Party Sites!

My friend Alison, who planned the Giraffe Baby Shower I posted about a while ago, just sent me some more party planning blogs and she knows how to throw a good party, so I know these sites are great. I just took a quick look at pulled these pics.

Celebrate Earth Day with Cool Mom Picks

I have been meaning to post about this blog. Cool Mom Picks is a great source for information on the newest and best baby items. Today, they have several great posts about Earth Day and living green. I'm especially interested in this book, Big Green Purse: Use Your Spending Power to Create a Cleaner, Greener World.

Happy Earth Day!
