smart travel system
Evenflo gold sensorsafe verge3 travel system
There's so many travel systems on the market and they can get pretty pricey! This Evenflo GOLD SensorSafe Verge3 Travel System has all the nuts and bolts you need in a travel system! As a petite mama, I was looking for something that was lightweight, has a great turn radius and wasn't bulky. I'm about 5'1'' and 108lbs as well as being 15 weeks c-section postpartum with an incision that's still healing and this travel system is easy to lug around! The travel system is pretty compact compared to its competitors.
Why I love it
SensorSafe Technology is so neat! You plug the SensorSafe receiver into your car's OBD port and it gives you realtime updates on your phone. It will alert you if your baby gets unbuckled, gets too warm or hasn't moved after an extended period of time. The receiver will also beep once your car turns off notifying you about your baby. You can also track where your car is!
These LumiPets are the cutest! I've had my eyes on these even before Calvin was born! I just love that there are so many settings to it. We've kept our Lumi Owl next to his crib or on our nightstand. Not only is it functional, it helps decorate his woodland theme nursery! I can't wait for Calvin to be a little older and play with it because they're squishy and works as a little squishy pet. They currently have an owl, dragon, bear and unicorn!

lollipop baby monitor
I've been looking for a high quality baby monitor since I found out I was pregnant! There's so many brands and varieties out on the market but I loved the Lollipop Baby Camera because of its reviews. So of course, I had to try it out for myself! It definitely does not disappoint! There's a lot of key features that I love about this baby camera!
Inside of the box, it includes this cute and flexible baby camera! You can purchase it in green, blue or pink. I thought the green would go great with his woodland themed nursery! The long part of the camera is flexible and bendy. You can twist or wrap it around your crib or basically anything. It comes with a cute wall mount so you can mount as well. I won't be mounting it until Calvin's a little bigger and can move. The lens on the camera has great range as well! Plus the video quality on it is super sharp!
To view the camera, you simply download the app. It's super easy to install! There's about a 4-step process to quickly create and account and pair the camera to your phone! This is great because I won't lose the monitor anymore!
The camera has a 2-way talk feature so I can talk to Calvin to calm him down if needed. Within the app, there's also music and sound list that you can play through the camera to your baby!
My husband and I never chose a pediatrician before Calvin was born so the hospital pediatrician came to see him. He was concerned about Calvin's neck strength and his hip placement from being breeched. He sent over a physical therapist to do a quick exam and she recommended for us to start physical therapy with him as precaution. As a new mama, I was already scared about what was to come and now I was anxious about my son's health or movement. Since September, we've seen the physical therapist once a month to learn new stretches and monitor his neck, hips and flat spots on his head. We would play with toys to watch him move certain directions and making sure he would stay at midline appropriately. She watched and monitored him closely while taking notes on what our next steps would be to help him. I won't lie, I was always anxious before each meeting because I was scared he wasn't progressing well. But guess what?! Calvin has great neck control, his hips are aligned where they need to be, he stays at midline well and is growing at a perfect rate!
