Single tunnel foam climber
| || |
After extensive research, this video sold me on the fact that we needed it for all of our adventures! Watch how smooth it is and all of the sleek features! We love the clean and soft detailing and fabric! It's definitely as luxurious as you can get for a stroller!
We ended up getting this stroller, the summer seat and a ton of other accessories that we'll talk more about!
- Stroller frame
- HUGE under basket
This is one of very very few strollers that we found that the seat sits upright. Many other ones we found had a slightly reclined seat which he hates because he wants to sit completely upright!
Sometimes we take a long stroll for the day and Calvin can start to get a little antsy. He's 10 months and about 20lbs. I'm a pretty petite mama so holding him isn't an option because he's so heavy and squirms so much! Having a stroller where the seat faces you or out is a must for us now! When he starts to get a little fussy, I flip the seat around and he can face me. This helps calm him down a lot! I can also help give him snacks or toys and make sure he doesn't drop them!
The canopy & wheels
The canopy is huge and fully adjustable and is a full coverage for your child! I love that the front sun hood can become unzipped if you don't want the full covering. It's very easy and quiet to extend and move. This was something we though about because sometimes Calvin can be easily woken by sounds of zippers or the movement of the canopy.
The wheels are large enough to be used on all terrain! This was my favorite because we go through a lot of gravel, grass and even sand! The front wheels lock to go straight by pushing down the front.
Forward facing you or outward facing
The handlebar & folding
The handlebar is so made of very soft and sleek leather. It's beautiful and easy to push and grip! The handlebar is also adjustable! You can make it a lot longer for taller people.
Folding and closing the stroller is easy! You push 2 small buttons on the side frame up and use your thumbs to push down on the silver pieces and fold the frame! It is also free standing!

We absolutely love Joolz! All of their products are so sleek and high end. I know they're a bit pricier but you definitely get what you pay for! If you're looking for one stroller that will last, the Day3 is definitely your best bet! It's so soft and sleek!!
Oral care! Brushing his teeth!
Stage 2: The one on the far left is recommended for soft gum massages for slightly older gums and when the teeth are just newly erupted.
Stage 3: The middle brush is recommended to massage and clean teeth during the teething process.
Stage 4: The soft nylon bristles are used to clean baby's teeth. We are currently using this brush because he has 4 teeth already (2 on top and 2 on the bottom).
The teething pains
This All Natural Soothing Gel and Gum-eez Teether works so well! Calvin loves his binky so this was the easiest for us to use. We squeeze some of the soothing gel on and he suckled and chomped on it. It's a sweet flavor that he enjoyed and gave really quick relief! We were so amazed with this one!
You can find this set at Target, Walmart, CVS or Walgreens.
These tablets are great because they dissolved in his mouth so quickly. They did relax and soothe his gums but took a little longer than the soothing gels. It was recommended to dissolve 2-3 tablets one at a time and continued every 15-20 minutes as needed. I wasn't always comfortable giving him so many but I think the combination of these and the soothing gels really helped.
You can find these at Target, Walmart, CVS or Walgreens.
Teething trends necklace
This necklace is now my best friend! It's been so hard trying to get out for a walk or even to the grocery store because Calvin's been teething and crying. Or, he's just been fussy. I love the vibrant teal color of the beads. They're soft silicone and safe for him to munch on. I don't even have to wear them! I usually just hand them to him and he plays and munches on them. If we're home, I'll put them in the freezer to get cold and then give it to him and it's like instant relief!
They have teal, grey, white and black teether necklaces.
You can find this at Walmart.
Nuby water play toys!
You can find these on Nuby's Website or HEB.
You can find these on Amazon!
Beautifully simple customized gifts
It was so hard to figure out what photo we wanted for the tangrams but we opted for one of our favorites of Calvin as a newborn and a silly one of Calvin and Robert with their scrunchy foreheads!
These tangrams come in a glossy finish. They're such a fun way to manipulate and learn spacial reasoning! I love that the backside is just a cute print so you can use them to create different animals and things. The box that it comes also have different fun ideas to create such as trees, animals, house, and more.

Calvin is just about to be 8 months old next week and he's already gotten 3 teeth! The drool machine has been shoving everything in his mouth. Thankfully we have this cute Look At Me Mirror Toy by Nuby. It has so many cute sides and textures. He especially loves that it has a small mirror on the other side. He looks at himself and giggles frequently! There's beads that rattle and the textured silicone side that he always keeps in his mouth. We'll definitely be taking this along with all of our adventures... whenever our state's stay home order is lifted.
Find these at Amazon or Target!
Isn't this Play Pal Tumble Tot truck so cute? He's loving the bright colors and smooth wheels. I really love that the bed of the truck is large enough for us to put some small toys in. The holes in the bed of the truck is also big enough that he is able to grasp and hold tightly without getting his fingers stuck. Tumblr tot vehicles have been such a hit for us because he's just learned how to crawl! He's been crawling and scooting after them!
Find these at Walmart, Amazon and Target!
These are so fun especially for a teething baby or just for the nice weather coming ahead. They're so easy to use! We just added some breastmilk or fruit (any liquid you want really) into the molds, attach the handle and stick them on a nice leveled surface in your freezer. We found that ours froze within 2 hours. We ran them under warm water for just a few seconds and then pulled them out so it wouldn't break.
Introducing the new...
In terms of price, it's $399 but you won't be disappointed. You might be turned off at the price at first but I can promise you it's worth every penny! It's very comparable to other high end strollers on the market but even better! It comes already assembled in the box. You literally just take it out of the bag and can use it!
lightweight meets luxury!
This is the MOST compact stroller I have ever seen. It closes down to a little square!
The wheels on this stroller drives like butter! I mentioned above that this stroller comes assembled already so you don't have to worry about attaching the wheels before using it. If you do have to replace the wheels for whatever reason or want to take it off to clean, you simply detach it with some buttons on the side. So far we've taken it around to the grocery store, library, to the lake and park! We haven't had any issues on any terrain and I think it's because of the 4-wheel built in suspension!
The 5-point harness is adjustable and so easy to use. It never gets stuck and clips/unclips so easily. You can just push down from the center and all points of the harness detaches! This makes getting baby out so quick and easy!
It has a back pocket! This was so convenient when we were out. The pocket is as deep as the entire seat!
Zippered extension makes it easy to adjust the seat! Unlike other strollers, the seat extension is hidden in the zipper and out of the way when not used.
The under basket is HUGE! You can easily store your diaper bag or some groceries below!
Very easy flip-flop brake system locks and unlocks the wheels!
This is our favorite spoon for feeding now! There's no more messes involved because you're able to put your purees inside the feeder spoon and slowly squeeze. It seals the food inside so well that it doesn't leak. I especially enjoy the fact that there are measurements on the side so you can keep track of how much baby eats.
You can find these on Amazon!
This is such a fun spoon to teach baby to feed themselves. It's thick and has great texture so it's easy for them to hold. The textures are also great for relieving any teething pains. There's the round safe guard that is very useful for preventing them to gag/choke.
You can find these at Walmart!
Easy grip bottle brushes
The sponge tip helps scrub out any fat residue and crevices. The soft bristles assure that you get everything. The bottom piece detaches and useful to clean smaller nooks and crannies such as anti-colic pieces or bottle nipples. The end also has a looped handle making it easy to hang to dry!
You can find these on Amazon, Walmart, Buy Buy Baby Direct stores and more.
Calvin isn't old enough to use these in the bath yet but we've been loving them for sensory play. We place them in a pan and fill it up with water and other floating toys. He gets to practice more tummy time and splash! These stacking boats are light and colorful. You can turn them upside down for such a fun waterfall! You get a total of about 5 boats that stack on top of each other making it super easy to store away.
You can find these on Amazon.
I've heard a lot of moms rave about bottle warmers and bottle sterilizers but wasn't sure if we should get another "thing" to take up space on our counters. There's a ton out there and all have mixed reviews. So how were we to figure out which one to get? My husband and I opted out of registering or purchasing a sterilizer for while because we figured we would just wash Calvin's bottles right away or boil it to sterilize. This was great until we actually used a sterilizer. In my opinion they're definitely worth it! We have a big sterilizer by Pabalic that we sterilize our big 8 oz bottles, toys and bigger items. But we use our Nuby one-touch electric warmer and sterilizer every day and sterilize just about every other day.
Nuby's one-touch electric warmer & sterilizer
Inside of the warmer/sterilizer is a small tray. For small items such as bink binks (pacifiers) and nipples, toss it inside of the tray, attach the lid and push the button down to sterilize.
I love that it has that inner tray. It helps prevent your bottle or small items to touch the heating plate. I also love that it's small and compact so it's not taking much counter space. It's small and easy to store in a cupboard if you're not using it everyday.
This one-touch electric warmer and sterilizer is available at Amazon, Walmart and most retailers.
Here's how we care for our bottles to make sure they're long lasting
We use our Nuby easy clean soap dispensing bottle brush with a suction base and Dapple's bottle and dish soap to clean all of our bottles and nipples. We also like to use our small Munchkin bottle and cup cleaners to get in the nooks and crannies.
I'll take all of the bottle pieces apart and stick in in the sink. Sometimes i'll soak it with some Dapple soap in a bucket while I wash the pieces. I use the Nuby soap dispensing brush to clean the large pieces and the Munchkin brushes to get in the small spaces. This was important and really helpful for my pump flanges and the small pieces for my bottle.
Why do we use these specific items?
- Nuby easy clean soap dispensing bottle brush: It's in the name! The soap reservoir actually holds quite a lot of soap. It also tightens well which prevents any leakage. It's super easy to dispense soap without wasting any. I also love that the suction base is super strong! I can suction it on the side of my sink and allow it to air dry without it flopping off. I also really like how firm the bristles are. It definitely gets all the milk residue. This was important because my breastmilk can be very fatty and sometimes you can see the fatty film inside the bottle- gross, I know! This bottle brush is great for wide mouth bottles such as my pumping bottles. It is a bit of a struggle to get into narrow neck bottles but it's not unmanageable.
- Available at Walmart, Amazon and most retailers
- Munchkin bottle and cup cleaner brushes are great because they come with various size cleaner bristles. This was the only way I found to clean between some of the nooks and crannies of my anti-colic bottle pieces or pumping flanges.
- Available at Target, Amazon and most retailers
- Dapple bottle and dish soap is something I recommend and buy for all of my friends. It's plant based and hypoallergenic! It's also the only dish soap I found that works quick! It cleans your bottle and pieces super fast and clean without all the crazy suds and bubbles.
- Available at Target, Amazon and most retailers

"A teething baby is so much fun!"
- said no mom ever.
Constant crying and swollen gums. You can kind of see where his teeth will break through the gums soon.
COmmon teething signs
We tried so many different remedies to help subside the pain and here's what helped
- We let him gnaw on a cold compress towel soaked in chamomile
- Bibs with the silicone teethers at the end of it
- Baby oragel helped a whole lot! We put just a small amount on our finger and massaged it onto the gums where it's breaking through
bannor toys Rattles & teethers
Classic baby rattles are great because they're easy to hold and makes a fun soft rattling sound which captures their attention. The rings are made from food-grade silicone so it's safe to munch on!
Saturn ring baby teethers are soft and fun. These are also made from food-grade silicone. We loved sticking them in the freezer and chilling them before letting him munch when his gums were super swollen. They're fun and easy to hold!
WA state rattle with customized name! Also available for any state! I'm such a sucker for customizable things to begin with. This rattle is made from hardwood cherry and long lasting!
Hux n harper
