Baby Getting Heavy?

Babies don’t stay small for long.  My son’s pediatrician would scold me for carrying him around in his car seat saying, “You’re going to hurt your back.”

Here are some recommendations for helping carry the baby was he/she gets older.

1. Rockin’ Baby Slings have beautiful designs in both pouches and slings. Plus for every sling sold they donate one to mothers in Haiti.

2. If you like to keep the baby in the car seat — especially if he/she is sleeping — consider using a Padalily Handle Cushion to help the pressure on the inside of your arm.  As your child gets older the cushion can later be converted to use on a seat belt.

3. Nothing easier than toting your baby around, than in a fold-up stroller. Our favorite is the phil&teds Smart stroller. The seat is soft; they use material similar to croc shoes, which makes it comfortable for your little one to ride around. Plus it is light enough to make storing it in the car easy. What we like about the stroller is that it adaptable to use with a car seat, and the stroller seat has the option to face out or towards you while you’re walking.

“The Louboutin of Strollers”

Called the “Louboutin” of strollers by Moxie Photography, mother of twins.


“THE STROLLER:  it really does ROCK.  Thanks to ELLEN at (BTW, she is local).  She showed me the what I think was a prototype or one of the first production models months ago.  IT really is so cool and does so many things.  and the fact that it acts like a single stroller is the best.  People all over town keep coming up to me commenting on the stroller.  Wow, its like the Louboutin of strollers.”

Wow Nikki! Thanks so much for this great review for the phil&ted Promenade Stroller.

Nikki is a mother a five, with the youngest two being infant twins. Besides having her plate full with being an awesome Mom, she’s also a kickin’ professional corporate / infant / family / senior-year photographer that is very popular in San Antonio, TX.

Check out Nikki’s blog over at Moxie Photography to get a peek into the busy life of a professional photographer, mother of five with infant twins mixed in. All I can say is that her life is not boring.

The phil&teds traveller is back in stock

traveller by phil&teds

The phil & ted traveller playpen/cot is back in stock at Bloom Maternity in either black or red.

What we love about this item is that it’s a full size cot/crib that’s lighter than the baby; and much lighter than other cribs/cots, weighing in at only 2.5 kg/5.5lbs. The traveller is perfect for travel, either by air or car. It’s unbelievably compact: fits in the parcel tray of your inlineTM or overhead baggage compartment. The extruded aluminium frame provides maximum strength & sparkling good looks.  Plus it’s self-inflating and has a thermally insulating mattress. Unlike other playpens, the traveller is built for your child to use till he/she is 3 years old.

Take at look at the traveller, and let us know what your favorite feature is for this unique travel cot/playpen.

Is Your Stroller over 20 lbs?

Weighing in at 12.6 lbs, phil&teds SMART stroller can easily breeze through airport security

We’re in the midst of the nation’s busiest travel season, and for those of you who haven’t traveled with a baby in recent months, might be surprised to find out that at least one airline won’t let you take your favorite jogging stroller behind the security gate.

That’s what I found out this summer when I was traveling on American Airlines. When I arrived at the aiport I was told I couldn’t take my stroller with me in the airport because AA had instituted the following policy:

“Strollers that are large, non-collapsible or over 20 lbs. must be checked at the ticket counter.”

Traveling alone with a 3 year-old and a non-walking 12 month-old, I was stunned. However the ticket agent had mercy on me and allowed me to take the stroller through to my destination since this was such a new policy.  On the return flight, a few tears helped me get the stroller past security again, however I noticed my stroller was conveniently baggage checked (& unaccessible) when I stopped in Dallas for my lay over.

Be sure to check your airline’s policy for strollers before you arrive at the airport for this Holiday season.  For those of you traveling on American Airlines, here’s their policy posted on-line:

Actually American Airlines told me the new stroller restriction was a FAA policy, which I believed until I traveled again a couple of months later. Flying with a different air carrier, I called to verify the stroller restrictions and the airline laughed at AA’s policy. They said that was like restricting wheelchairs behind the security gate for travelers.

We’ll see if other airline carriers take note and institute the same inconvenience for mothers.
