Living with Multiples

I remember when my husband and I found out that we were pregnant with twins, it was a feeling of excitement, anticipation and of course overwhelming too! We had a 14-month-old at the time and had just gotten past buying all the baby gear and with the news of the twins we quickly realized we needed double of everything! We were so happy to find Joovy products and that they have designed a number of thoughtfully designed twin products to make juggling two babies at the same time possible. Full hands and full hearts has been our motto around our home and Joovy’s twin products have been a lifesaver in helping keep our babies safe and comfortable with their well-thought designs and functional products.

We have found that the Room2 and the Big Caboose have been amazing options with our young family.

Our first trip with our Big Caboose was taking our three boys to the hospital for a nursing consult. Getting out the door with all three was so intimidating and we were so glad there was a stroller out there where all three kids could be sitting and contained. Our two-year-old is so fun and so busy so buckling him into a seat was an essential must when looking for a stroller. I did my research for months looking for the perfect stroller for our situation and the Big Caboose kept coming to the top of my list and I am so glad I chose to go with that one in the end, it has been so functional and convenient.

We use the stroller almost daily. For instance, today I met up with friends and took the kids on a walk around the neighborhood. We also have used it to go on family adventures downtown Dallas (anything outside of the house right now we call an adventure!), we have taken it to many doctors appointments, to a museum, to the park and of course to the grocery store where we always create quite a stir with pushing three babies in one contraption. One bonus while using it at the grocery store is that I can fit a surprising amount of groceries in the bottom storage area. It was laughable how many bags of groceries I pulled out of the bottom storage at the checkout and I was so thankful for it because pushing a stroller and a shopping cart by myself was not and will not be happening anytime soon!

We have also loved the Room2 Playard. I love the genius, oversized design it has as well as the Room2 Twin Nursery Center. We have loved using the Room2 Playard in our living room so that we can know the babies are contained and safe while we live life alongside them being busy cooking up dinner, chasing our two-year-old or changing diapers. The Room2 Twin Nursery Center is also so sensible and well thought. You can change your baby, have your baby sleep in the bassinet portion and play in the playard area below. It has a lot of great options.

If you’re pregnant with multiples, have multiples or have multiple children that are close in age I think Joovy has some amazing options out there to make living life with multiples much more functional!

Cheers,

Heather, mom of Dax & River

The Boobs are Wonderful! So is the Caboose VaryLight!

Dear Doodie,

My husband Michael and I are proud to announce the arrival of Anthony James on November 21st, 2014. He is a blessing!

We are also blessed from winning the contest. We love the Joovy products!

The Caboose VaryLight feels so durable and smooth. Anthony loves riding in it. It also fits in the back of our car, a Subaru Impreza hatchback, without any issues. I like that I am able to easily fold and unfold it.

The Boob bottles are wonderful. I breastfeed, so I don’t use them everyday. I do pump though, so that Michael is able to feed Anthony sometimes. The pump attachments have been very helpful for that. I haven’t had any issues with the bottles. They are easy to use. We have a couple other types of bottles, but this is our favorite one. Some of our other ones have a tendency to leak. The plastic on one of the other bottles becomes too hot after being in the bottle warmer.

Sincerely,
Barbara, (Anthony’s mom)

The Joovy MoonRoom has Arrived!

It’s out of this world!  Joovy’s new MoonRoom is a playard with a different dimension!  Actually, like our popular Room ² the MoonRoom has 10 square feet of space so baby has plenty of room for play and sleep.  The difference is that instead of a square, the top rails are rotated creating the coolest space for kids we’ve ever seen!  Just like all Joovy playards, the MoonRoom comes with a 100% cotton sheet, travel bag and it’s available in purpleness, charcoal and black.

The MoonRoom folds up the same way our Room playards fold and each weighs in at 27.5 pounds.  Sturdy and reliable, the MoonRoom is constructed with the highest quality materials and is covered with 600D nylon.  The playard is age-graded from birth to 35″.  Extra sheets will be available for purchase. Dimensions are: Folded: 11” H x 11” W x 38.5” D , assembled: 30” H x 47” W x 47” D.

Joovy goes to the moon with the new MoonRoom!

Spring Cleaning ‘How To’ with Toddlers in Tow!

Spring is here! Are you opening doors and airing out? This blog post will hopefully give some pointers on how to approach spring cleaning, or cleaning any other time of the year with toddlers in tow.

Okay Mamas (and Dads) what do you do when you need to clean the house and  you’ve got a very active baby or young toddler hanging around? Pulling out cleaning supplies is stressful when you’ve got a little guy who loves to grab the dust brush, jump into the tub and wander into your kitchen — even if you have gates and have childproofed everything possible! And don’t forget how toddlers “help” by pulling papers and toys onto the floor! Even if you are the master of childproofing, it’s hard to keep little ones safe when you’ve got to vacuum or mop…

So, what do you do?

We’ve come up with some tips to make it a little easier
1. Plan out what you are going to do first, second…and so forth.

2. Try to get as much done during nap time or after they’re sleeping at night (obviously this isn’t when you vacuum).

3. Have them “help” a little. If they can understand directions, they can help you pick up their own toys. Have large bins/baskets that they can easily put things into (and will help you organize their stuff).

4. In situations where you don’t want them helping, such as mopping or vacuuming, utilize your playard! Make sure there are soft toys inside and the sheet is clean and let him play! This way, your little one is safe, nearby, and you know they’re not getting into cleaning supplies or slipping on a freshly mopped floor.
