Another big recall to announce! A few days ago 2.2 million bean bag chairs made by Ace Bayou were recalled following the deaths of two children. The zippers on the bean bag chairs can be opened and children can then crawl inside, get trapped and suffocate or choke on the bean bag chair’s foam beads. The voluntary standard requires non-refillable bean bag chairs to have closed and permanently disabled zippers. A 13-year old boy from McKinney, Texas died and a 3-year-old girl from Lexington, Ky. died after suffocating from lack of air and inhaling the chair’s foam beads. Both children […] Continue reading →

It’s always scary when a recalled item happens to be the same one you use daily. In this case it was for one of the bottles that my daughter uses daily. 242,500 Brita Water Filter bottles for kids have been recalled as the lid can break into pieces with sharp points, posing a laceration hazard. The four recalled children’s water bottles have popular cartoon characters on a hard-sided plastic bottle. Characters and bottle colors include Dora the Explorer®, violet; Hello Kitty®, pink; SpongeBob Square Pants®, blue; and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles®, green. The bottles stand 6 inches tall, hold 15 […] Continue reading →


Remember Sabrina the Teenage Witch? The actress and star of the show, Melissa Joan Hart has teamed up with her husband Mark Wilkerson to launch their first kids’ line, aptly called, King of Harts. As the parents of three young active sons the couple decided to create a line of cool, functional, and resilient clothing options that could keep up with their frog catching, mud-puddle jumping, tree climbing boys. As a mom to a boy, I can attest to how few clothing lines there are that are geared towards boys, so this is definitely welcomed news. The collection is manufactured […] Continue reading →

Check your car seats and share this information with your friends, because this recall is a biggie! Recaro Child Safety has recalled 39,181 Recaro ProSport model 385 child restraints, manufactured from June 16, 2010, through January 31, 2013.

In the event of a crash, the child restraint could fail to protect the child from contacting interior surfaces of the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury. If you registered your car seat, Recaro will be […] Continue reading →

Anne Geddes Nadia Carriere

The last couple of weeks have been a complete whirlwind, however I wanted to share some of the highlights from the Blogger Bash Babypalooza event that I hosted with Desiree Miller in New York City. Anne Geddes was the guest of honour and shared some of her top photography tips with the hundreds of mom bloggers in attendance. I’m a huge fan of Anne’s work, in fact my bookshelf is lined with several of her books and I’ve been in awe of her gorgeous photography for many years now, so to say I was honoured to meet and speak with […] Continue reading →
