FAVORITE GEAR & OTHER STUFF
Check out the shopping links in the sidebar for some of our favorite stores.

  • Stroller - Bugaboo , black Frog model. Sweet. Saxon slept in the bassinet her 1st 3 months. Still love it two years later. The multi-dimensional Bugaboo rides great on all types of terrain (including up & over easily over curbs and cracked sidewalks) and turns on a dime. Bugaboo’s customer service is incredible.
  • Car Seat - New Radian80 - Manhattan Sunshine Kids New Radian80 - SuperCool Although you’ve probably never heard of Sunshine Kids, the manufacturer of the Radian80 (and Radian65), they build the strongest car seat in the world. Bar none.

Diapers, Wipes, Potions
I wish I could say we use cloth diapers. But, alas, we do not.

  • Pampers Swaddlers worked great for us. They didn’t leak. What else do you want? Biodegradable? Hah.
  • Protect the bum - In 1963, Chris’ cousin, Dr. Forrest "Frosty" Smith, a San Antonio pediatrician, worked with two pharmacists to invent a treatment for his patients’ diaper rashes. Dr. Smith’s Diaper Ointment is the very best solution we’ve found to prevent and heal diaper rash. You can get it at Amazon (and sometimes at your local pharmacy or Wal-Mart, CVS, Target or Walgreens).
