While there are certainly moments when I miss the languorous uninterrupted pool time that characterizes a vacation without kids, I find family trips are so much richer and more interesting, and I love seeing new sights through my son’s eyes. That being said, there are definitely some things to keep in mind to ensure that your entire family (including you!) have a great time away. Here are a few tips that have worked for us.
A stroller has many jobs. From keeping your most precious cargo safe and snug to holding everything you need when you’re on the move with your tot, it’s important to consider all of the things a good stroller can do. We worked with Musefind(Opens in a new window) to team up with moms around the United States to see what they thought of OXO Tot’s new Cubby+ Stroller(Opens in a new window) from storage space to the adjustable handle bar check out what some of these mamas have to say about it.
If you hate kitchen clutter, thinking of ways to maximize the utility of some of your favorite countertop mainstays is always a worthwhile endeavor. For our family, one of those items is the Bottle Drying Rack(Opens in a new window),
Creating a baby registry was almost paralyzing for me—there are thousands of competing products out there and, especially when you’re having your first baby, you’re completely unsure which things are essential.
At OXO we apply our “question everything” philosophy to every product we develop. When it came time to design our first line of baby strollers, we knew we wanted them to be lightweight and easy to fold, but also address pet peeves we experienced as parents and questions we had about strollers. We interviewed nearly 1,000 parents, both first-timers and old pros, met with baby store staff, and pored over hundreds of online reviews, to discover what people loved about their strollers—and what drove them nuts. Those pet peeves
A baby boom in the OXO office? In the span of five years, 25 babies were born to OXO’s (then) 50 employees. Discussions around the office soon shifted towards how we could make life easier for new parents. In typical OXO fashion, we set out to solve pet peeves by creating a line of thoughtful products that help parents guide, nurture, and care for their little ones—that’s how OXO Tot was born. We asked some parents in the office what Tot products they can't live without,
When you’re in the thick of it, transitioning to solids—like every other baby milestone—is a huge deal. On the one hand, you spend less time worrying about breast or bottle feeding; on the other, something new to obsess about! We’re a bit obsessive at OXO too. Whenever we can improve upon a product, we go for it. Such was the case with our popular Baby Blocks.
I love going out to eat, but going out to eat with kids? Stressful! But it doesn’t have to be. In fact, if you go in with the right mindset and some key items, you’ll find that eating out might actually be easier than eating in (hello no dishes and no vacuuming under the kitchen table). Here’s what’s worked for me.
My family is planning our first real road trip with three kids later this summer and to say that I’m not a little bit nervous would be an understatement. Road trips with kids are definitely a bit more challenging than those without, but they can be worthwhile and even—dare I say it—super fun. With a little planning and these tips, you’ll all have a great time.
There’s a lot of information out there on feeding children, and it can get overwhelming. When I had my first child, my friend Catherine was the first person I turned to for advice about baby-feeding. After all, her site Weelicious(Opens in a new window) is devoted to feeding children and she’s written not one but two wildly popular books(Opens
Our blogger friends around the country are really taking advantage of this summer weather! We’re feeling inspired by their trips to the park, to the beach, and other weekend road trip destinations to soak up the sunshine. We wanted to give them a special shout-out and show you how they’re spending the summer with their little ones.
