    How to Make the Most of Summer Vacation with Kids

    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.

    Moms of Instagram Talk Strollers

    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 to team up with moms around the United States to see what they thought of OXO Tot’s new Cubby+ Stroller — from storage space to the adjustable handle bar check out what some of these mamas have to say about it.

    OXO’s Baby Registry Guide

    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. Friends and family are bound to get you a few meaningful and sentimental gifts, so I’m a big fan of creating a very useful, practical registry with your must-haves and big ticket items (because you never know!)

    What to Pack for An All-Day Adventure

    During the winter months, getting to spend the whole day outdoors is often a luxury. When the weather cooperates, we love to head out and explore our neighborhood, stop by our favorite coffee shop, and fit in a visit with a few friends. Now that our little guy is a toddler, we have a bit more flexibility in terms of leaving the house – but it still takes some planning and prep. Thankfully our stroller has a super roomy expandable basket underneath and easy-to-reach pockets, so we never have a problem squeezing in our go-to essentials, especially important for an all-day adventure.

    How We Designed the Cubby Strollers

    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 led to some of the most important and parent-friendly features in our brand new Cubby and Cubby+ Strollers.

    How to Throw a Laid-back First Birthday Party

    Our son just turned one and we wanted to mark the occasion with a small party, but as soon as we sat down to make a list of family and friends, things started to spin out of control. Should we hire a photographer? Should we rent out a space? After a bit of discussion, we decided to keep things simple, giving us a chance to actually talk with our friends and allowing the babies lots of time to crawl around and bat at each other. Here are a handful of ways we pulled off a mellow first birthday party with minimal stress and a doable budget.

    Fall Purees to Feed Your Kids

    I tend to start my babies with single veggie purees (carrot, sweet potato, peas) then move on to fruit, grains, legumes, beans, eggs, and other proteins. (more…)

    Tips for Apple-Picking with Kids (and an Applesauce Recipe!)

    When you have a kid (or two, or three) in tow, getting “out” can sometimes feel like more effort than it’s worth—especially when the weather is starting to turn chilly. But there are still plenty of great family-friendly activities you can partake in that will transport you from the outdoors to the kitchen, all with your kids involved.
