NURSERY UPDATE- New Apartment

4/06/2019


The first room to come together in the new apt is...Niki's nursery!


If you saw my nursery reveal post when he was born in May, you'll notice that the theme remained the same! I didn't feel like changing the jungle/animal elements YET. I want him to choose his next room when he is older.  

However, I wanted it to have a little UPDATE- and the easiest way to do so is with: WALLPAPER! I absolutely love this one by Minted ...it looks so good that everyone keeps asking me if I painted it myself (hey I'm not that craftyūüôą!) but props to my husband for putting it up almost perfectly! Isn't it dreamy!!??

The last post also had the SNOO bassinet, which I don't recommend. I wish we had used this big crib since day 1. This one is from Babyletto and it also converts into a toddler bed.

 I was also excited to get a glider! As we shared rooms in the previous apartment, there wasn't space for it! I'm loving it for reading/feeding time...oh boy, now I realize how much I needed it when he was tiny. But hey, I'm saving it for the next one!

What do you think? On the other side, there is the play area, but it's not perfect yet! 

P.S: since he is such an active baby, I had to bribe him with baby cookies so he would stay still for the pic hahaha.

¡¡Y el primer cuarto que les quiero mostrar es el de NICO!!


Si vieron su cuartico (que era en la esquina dentro de nuestro cuarto) cuando naci√≥, se habr√°n dado cuenta que el tema del cuarto es el mismo- ¡¡animalitos!!  Siento que todav√≠a est√° chiquito para cambiarlo...quiero que el pr√≥ximo lo escoja √©l cuando est√© m√°s grande. Tambi√©n entre tantos gastos durante la mudanza, preferimos mantener este lo m√°s parecido posible para comprar lo menos posible.


PERO, quer√≠a darle como un "refresh" (actualizarlo un poquito), y la manera m√°s sencilla es con papel pintado en las paredes. Me enamor√© de este de Minted... aparte que parece que lo pint√© YO (no se crean, no soy tan buena con las manualidades!). Pero el padre de la criatura si fue bueno poni√©ndolo.. ¿no les parece hermooooso!!?? 

Tambi√©n otra de las cosas que quer√≠a era una mecedora (cosa que no ten√≠amos antes por falta de espacio). Realmente es lo m√°ximo para leer juntos y darle su leche! y bueno el color neutral para que funcione a futuro! ¿Qu√© les parece? 

Del otro lado tiene el area de juego, pero no est√° listo. ¡Ya les compartir√© m√°s!

Must-Try: HydraFacial

4/05/2019

Sponsored by HydraFacial & The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.



I cant stop talking about the importance of self-care, especially after starting your own family.  There is nothing that feels more fulfilling than spending time with my baby; but I need time for myself, to take care of me. Because: happy mama=happy baby.

Most days self-care means sweating in the gym. Some days it means a much needed mani. But a truly special self-care day means: FACIAL!

I was super excited to try the HydraFacial experience at Skin by Tatum- and feel my skin healthy and glowy....spoiler: it was everything I expected AND MORE!!!

HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that delivers skin-health in as little as 30 minutes. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities. It can also be personalized to meet the needs of your specific skin type.

As soon as I arrived to Skin by Tatum, I got an amazing skin analysis in order to personalize my HydraFacial to my specific needs. This treatment addresses all skincare needs like: fine lines, wrinkles, texture, brown spots, enlarged pores, elasticity, and more!

One of my main problems was hydration (yes, yes I need to drink more water) and dark spots for not using as much sunscreen as I should.  I instantly noticed improved hydration, and more of an even tone (with a glow OUT OF THIS WORLD!!) with no discomfort.

The HydraFacial machine has tips with a unique spiral design that provides non-invasive skin resurfacing and temporary pore opening to effectively cleanse, exfoliate and extract impurities evenly without damaging the skin while ALSO delivering serums to the skin.





STEP #1 Cleanse + Peel. 
It removes dead skin cells and sebum. This allows the skin to reflect more light and appear brighter and healthier. This step uses a mix of salicylic and glycol acids to help loosen deep pore debris and dirt to prevent the formation of the pustules involved in acne.

STEP #2 Extract + Hydrate.
 Provides strong vacuum suction to remove blackheads and other impurities.

STEP #3 Fuse + Protect.
 Delivers a Pro antioxidant formula with potent peptides to restore healthy skin structure and function.


Right after my facial, I had an event. And the best part of this treatment is that you can return to your normal activities after. I put a little concealer, mascara, and my eyebrowsbecause it was a blogger event. But my skin felt SO amazing that no foundation was needed and I kept getting compliments about my skin.

One treatment per month is recommended to continue improving your results, and I want to be back as soon as possible!






Are you as excited as I was for this treatment?

LIFE UPDATE- WE MOVED!

4/03/2019

NEW HOME...WHO DIS!!?

 Last month, we said good-bye to the apt where we lived for almost 7 years...the one where we got engaged (literally Gabe proposed in the middle of the living room), decorated as newlyweds, and then first home to Niki.

 But we are SO excited for the new memories to come, the new adventures...to see Nico grow, to see him have his own bedroom.

Yes, we shared our bedroom with him for 9 months; but then when we started sleep training, at 7 months, we basically moved out to the living room.  Yes, we gave up or bedroom so Nico could sleep peacefully in his own space. It was super annoying because we couldn't use the bathroom after he went to sleep, and every day we had to take our mattress out. Yes, first world problems...but as he grew, we definitely needed more space.

The house is not 100% ready but with a lot of love, it's coming together, while trying to make #MarieKondo proud haha.

The first room to be absolutely ready was Nico's room, and that would be my next post. Reason why I wanted to explain that we moved and that we are so happy to make this little apartment our HOME!

Who else loves HOME DECOR?


 ____________ 


Y nos despedimos del apartamento donde vivimos casi 7 a√Īos; en el que nos comprometimos (¡SI!, Gabe me pidi√≥ matrimonio en la sala), el que decoramos como reci√©n casados, y el primer hogar de Niki. 

¡Pero estamos demasiado emocionados por las nuevas aventuras en este apartamento...por ver a Nico crecer corriendo, que tenga su propio cuarto, y nosotros felices de volver a tener el nuestro!! (que si leyeron mi post del sue√Īo, saben que Nico b√°sicamente nos quit√≥ nuestro cuarto y est√°bamos durmiendo en la sala).  Era parte de la vida, y sab√≠amos que eventualmente ten√≠amos que buscar otro apartamento.

Todavía el apartamento no está 100% listo pero ahí vamos, poco a poco...aparte intentando aplicar todo lo que aprendí viendo a Marie Kondo! He estado intentado documentar el proceso para después mostrarles antes y después de cada cuarto. El de Niki ya está listo y viene PRONTO.

¿Qui√©n m√°s ama decorar!?ūüôč‍


OUR TIPS FOR FLYING WITH A BABY

4/01/2019
Nico's first flight!!! 



 I'm definitely no expert when it comes to flying but Nico has already been to Mexico, New York and California. Before his first flight in October, I asked on IG stories if you all amazing mamas had some tips for me.  The response was incredible, I tried to saved whatever we thought would work for us and now it's my turn to share what we implemented.

I hope they can be useful to any first-time moms out there.



WHEN BOOKING:
- Try to book the flight around his nap times if the flight is relatively short. If the flight is to Europe, for example, I've read it is better to book an overnight flight.

- If you are a small family of three, like us, when selecting the seats, pick an aisle and a window seat. If the flight isn't full, there might be a possibility that nobody will pick the middle seat...and you have to whole row for you! We did this and it worked! If the flight is full, I'm sure that person will be thrilled you are switching them from a middle seat to a window seat. 

- If you are traveling nationally, there isn't any fee for a baby that's traveling in your lap. However, always call the airline. For our trip to Mexico, we had to play a 10% of our flight for taxes.

- Also if the flight isn't full, you might be able to bring the carseat with you inside the plane. This is also, of course, safer for your baby.



WHEN PACKING:
Have your documents ready. For national flight, we weren't asked to show any proof of age but we also had his passport with us. 

When flying with a baby, you get an extra personal item (aka the diaper bag). So here are my recommendations on what to bring:
- DIAPERS: Add enough diapers for the length of the flight and extra for any surprises (like delays or poopy explosions!). 
- Diaper cream and wipes, of course!

- An extra shirt for me and one for my husband- again, just in case any spit-ups that can ruin your travel look.

- I added a few layers for my baby- just in case the plane go too cold or too hot. I dressed him in a short-sleeve onesie but I brought pants, socks, a cozy jacket, and a little blanket. We ended up using it all since it was cold at the airport but hot inside the plane.

- Bring some of his favorite toys and some he/she hasn't seen before; that way you can entertain them easily during the flight.

- If you can, bring the baby carrier. It's extremely useful even when the baby is sleeping in the plane.


FOOD-WISE:
- On your diaper bag, you can bring formula, baby food, AND water without any issues (yes, WATER!). The TSA crew will carefully check your bag but it is acceptable to bring food and water if you are traveling with a baby. Give yourself 15 min of extra time for this check.

- If you need to pump, major airports have areas where you can pump privately.
- Same with breastfeeding. I'm all for publicly feedings, BUT if you need some privacy...there are areas you can do it.

PRE-FLIGHT:
- Besides the diaper bag, you are allowed to check an item at the counter and another one  right before entering the plane. Regularly, you check the carseat at the counter and the stroller in the gate.  If you can only check the one at the gate, do so.  The items are not treated as well as they should as baggage.

- When going through TSA, you can wear your baby with the baby carrier, and you don't need to take it off. But some airlines might request you to take it off during take-off and landing.

- Check if you have early boarding- most airlines let you go inside the plane early so you can get settled with your little one.

- Try to tire your baby before boarding so your baby is ready to sleep as soon as you take off.




DURING THE FLIGHT:
During take off and landing, make sure the baby is on the boob, with a pacifier or the bottle. This helps with the ear discomfort. This is probably the most important tip on this trip.

- You can ask the flight attendants to warm baby bottles. We didn't do it personally but this service is there for you.

- Changing tables are tiny inside the plane; so if you can, change your baby right before boarding and as soon as you land (of course, if timing permits!)

- Keep calm if your baby is crying, don't worry about anybody else. It happens and the calmer you are the calmer your baby be.

- The engines work as white- noise, that's why babies fall asleep relatively easy on planes.


AFTER-FLIGHT:
- Get ready to adjust his routine.  If there is any time difference, add a quick nap or put him down to sleep earlier. Nico never noticed the 3 hour difference when coming and going to LA.
- When you arrive, request an UBER XL because of all the luggage, stroller/carseat, etc.


Hope this is all helpful and please add your tips below!



__________________________________________


No me considero ninguna experta cuando se trata de viajar con beb√©s...PERO ya hemos viajado un par de veces con nuestro peque√Īito. Y quiero compartir con ustedes algunas de las recomendaciones que me dieron y que implementamos.

Espero que le sean √ļtiles a alguna mam√° por aqu√≠.



AL COMPRAR EL TICKET:
- Intenta que el vuelo sea durante su siesta si el vuelo es corto. Si es uno largo a Europa, es recomendado que sea de noche para que el bebé descanse lo más posible.

- Si tu familia es peque√Īa, intenta escoger el asiento de la ventana y el del pasillo para ti y para tu pareja. En dado caso que el vuelo no est√© lleno, el asiento del medio estar√° vaci√≥. WHOOP WHOOP a la fila completa. Nosotros hicimos esto y funcion√≥. ¡Si llega a estar ocupado, le ofreces el de la ventana, y listo!

- Si el beb√© va en tus piernas, generalmente no hay costo. Pero siempre llama a la aerol√≠nea para asegurarte. Por ejemplo, M√©xico al ser internacional, tuvimos que pagar impuestos por √©l (unos $20).

- Si el vuelo no est√° lleno, puedes entrar con el asiento para el carro y ponerlo en su propio puesto. 

AL MOMENTO DE EMPACAR:
-  Por supuesto, ten la identificaci√≥n a la mano. En vuelos nacionales, no nos han pedido su pasaporte- pero siempre lo tenemos con nosotros.

- Al viajar con un beb√©, la aerol√≠nea te deja llevar otra pieza de equipaje peque√Īa (es decir, la pa√Īalera). Aqu√≠ les dejo un par de recomendaciones en cuanto a que llevar:
a) PANALES: lleva suficientes pa√Īales para la duraci√≥n del vuelo + tiempo en el aeropuerto + extra en dado caso de alg√ļn retraso o sorpresa de #2.
b) Toallitas h√ļmedas y cremita, por supuesto.
c) Una camisa extra para tí y tu pareja (otra vez, en dado caso que se ensucie con leche, buche, o comida de bebé).
d) Lleva ropita extra para tu beb√©. Yo siempre le llev√≥, sin importar a donde vayamos, un su√©ter, medias, pantalones abrigados, y una manta.  Todo esto en dado caso que en el avi√≥n/aeropuerto haga mucho fr√≠o.
e) Juguetes. Tanto sus favoritos como un par de juguetes nuevos que lo entretenga durante el vuelo.
f) Si puedes llevar el porta-beb√©, ¡excelente! A mi me ayud√≥ mucho.

En cuanto a la COMIDA:
- En la pa√Īalera puedes llevar todo lo que necesitas, comida de beb√© (en papillas o regular), f√≥rmula, leche materna, y agua (SI, AGUA!). Al momento de pasar seguridad, te van a revisar la pa√Īalera cuidadosamente, por esto a√Īade unos 15 minutos m√°s de tiempo.

- Si necesitas usar el extractor de leche, hay areas donde puedes sacarte leche o darle a tu beb√© pecho de manera privada. 

ANTES DEL VUELO:
- Aparte de la pa√Īalera, puedes chequear una pieza al hacer check-in y otra en la puerta antes de entrar al avi√≥n. Regularmente estas dos piezas son el asiento para el carro y el coche.  Si viajas mucho, te recomiendo el Doona Stroler que es un 2x1.

- Puedes pasar seguridad con el portabeb√© puesto y no necesitas quitarterlo- pero considera que la aerol√≠nea puede prohibirlo al momento de despegue y aterrizaje.


- Revisa si te dejan abordar antes- la mayor√≠a de las aerol√≠neas lo permiten para que tengas tiempo de acomodar todo.

- Intenta cansar a tu bebé jugando, en la puerta para que se duerma apenas se suban al avión.


DURANTE EL VUELO:
- Lo más importante es que tu bebé esté en el pecho, con un chupón o en su biberón al momento de despegar y aterrizar. Esto ayuda con la molestia en los oídos.

- Si necesitas calentar la leche, las aeromozas lo pueden hacer. 

- Los cambiadores en los aviones son MINIMOS. Nosotros intentamos cambiarlo justo antes de abordar y al bajarnos.

- Si tu beb√© esta inquieto o llorando, mant√©n la calma. Ellos se alimentan de nuestras energ√≠as, ¡¡cero estr√©s!!

- Las turbinas funcionan como sonido blanco, ¡lo cual ayuda a que se queden dormido m√°s r√°pido!

DESPUES DEL VUELO:
- Pide un UBER XL para que te quepan todas las maletas, coche, asiento del carro, etc.

- Prep√°rate para ajustar su rutina apenas lleguen, especialmente si hay alg√ļn cambio de horario.

We Dress America…with Walmart

3/29/2019

“Sponsored by Walmart and ShopStyle”


When I started blogging, in a time that feels like another lifetime ago, my main goal was to inspire you to express your personality with fashion, and to always have fun with trends.

When I was approached by Walmart and ShopStyle for this campaign, I was so excited to say yes. We Dress America not only encourages you to showcase your unique style but also celebrates fashion for all, from corner to corner of the country, all shapes, sizes and colors!

However, keeping up with the current trends doesn’t have to hurt your pocket. As I checked Walmart Fashion, I was impressed by the versatile selection of brands and current styles!

I was drawn to so many pieces. But let’s talk about this look first! This season I’m loving the Utility Trend; that includes animal print and camo print!  I got these camo pants; and they are so easy to dress up or down.

But hey, to keep it real and authentic .. I’m a mom of a little dude that’s getting ready to walk, I’m all for comfort. So, I decided to pair these camo pants with a simple tee, the coolest sunnies, comfortable sneakers, and clear backpack (everything from Walmart too, you can check the exact brands in the “Get the Look” section below!!).

We headed to one of our favorite areas in Miami: WYNWOOD!
It’s such an inspiring neighborhood with street art in every corner, galleries, and delicious food spots. We stopped by Zak The Baker- the most delicious bakery with the most delicious banana bread!


What’s your favorite trend this Spring? Let me know!

Mi meta con el blog siempre ha sido desmostrarles que la moda se trata de demostrar tu personalidad y de no tomarte tan en serio las tendencias.

Cuando me contactaron para trabajar junto a Walmart y ShopStyle, me emocion√© mucho que "Dress America' se trata de motivar a las mujeres a mostrar su estilo √ļnico de esquina a esquina del pa√≠s sin importar tu tipo de cuerpo,  estilo, tama√Īo, etc.

Estuve horas de horas viendo piezas. Pero volv√≠a y volv√≠a a estos pantalones de camo. Tuve unos parecidos hace muchos a√Īos y me encantaban por lo vers√°tiles que pueden ser.

Pero por mucho que quiera usarlos con tacones: com mam√° de un chiquitico que est√° prepar√°ndose para caminar,  la comodidad es muy importante. As√≠ que lo combin√© con una camisa blanca, unos lentes muy cool  sneakers blancos y un morral transparente (TODO de Walmart tambi√©n, pueden ver las marcas exactas abajo).

Y nos fuimos a nuestra area favorita en Miami: WYNWOOD!
Realmente es una zona que inspira, llena de arte, galerias, tiendas, y restaurantes. Pasamos por Zak The Baker; una panadería que aparte tiene el banana bread más rico que he comido en Miami.

¿Cu√°l es tu tendencia favorita esta primavera?

5 BABY INVESTMENTS....are they worth it?

3/20/2019


Nowadays we get bombarded with baby products- and they keep getting more and more expensive, more technological, and full of promises. Reason why today I want to share 5 expensive baby products...and are they worth it?


___________________


Hoy en d√≠a nos bombardean con productos para nuestros beb√©s, y cada uno m√°s caro que el anterior. Cada a√Īo sacan productos m√°s tecnol√≥gicos y con muchas promesas. Por esto, hoy les quiero contar de 5 productos costosos que nosotros personalmente probamos y les cuento si me parece que valen la pena y por qu√©.





1) DOCK-A-TOT ($195)



What is it?
The Dock-A-Tot is a multi-use lounger where your baby can sleep, play, rest, do tummy time and get his/her diaper changes. It's designed to feel like the womb.

PROS
- Very useful. When our baby was really little, we would use day and night. I would take it to the living room...or even to the bathroom with me!
- It's great for safe co-sleeping.
- Easy to transport. We took it with us for our first big trip to Mexico, and Nico really felt like home.
- Easy to wash.
- Comes in the most gorgeous prints.



CONS:
- Durability.  The Deluxe+ lasts until the baby is around 8 months. But we only used it until Nico was 5 months.
- There is a lot of controversy about its safety. Some mamas say it shouldn't be used inside a regular crib, and some that it shouldn't spend the night inside it either.
- It requires at least another cover (just in case of any emergency) and it's definitely an added cost.
- If you want to continue using it, you have to purchase the grand - that lasts until the baby is 3 years old.

¿Qu√© es? El Dock-a-tot es un colch√≥n de m√ļltiples usos dise√Īado para que el beb√© se sienta como si estuviese en la barriga ya que es bastante acogedor.

PROS:
- Nosotros lo us√°bamos d√≠a y noche cuando Nico estaba peque√Īo. Lo usamos sin parar: yo me lo llevaba de la sala al cuarto, y al ba√Īo... ¡a todos lados!
-  Es perfecto si quieres hacer colecho (co-sleeping) de manera segura. De noche Nico dorm√≠a con nosotros en la cama adentro de su dock-a-tot.
- Fácil de transportarlo para viajes. Lo llevamos adentro de una maleta para México y a Anna Maria Island. Es una manera de que el bebé se sienta en su ambiente a donde sea que vayas.
- F√°cil de lavar.
- Viene en unos estampados PRECIOSOS.


CONTRA:
-En teor√≠a el dock-a-tot que utilizamos dura hasta los 9 meses pero Nico solo lo utilize hasta los 5 meses. Tambi√©n el curso de sue√Īo que hicimos recomienda no usarlo al empezar el "entrenamiento". As√≠ que realmente no dura mucho tiempo.
- No recomiendan que lo uses adentro de la cuna.
- Requiere compra de accesorios (al menos dos covers en casos de emergencia), que a√Īaden al costo final.
-Si deseas seguir us√°ndolo, debes comprar el grand (que dura hasta los 3 a√Īos).


En estos momentos me cuesta mucho decidir si vale la pena porque tenemos mucho tiempo sin usarlo, pero le dimos MUCHO uso los primeros meses. Voy a decir que sí porque es una pieza que guardé para el día que tengamos otro bebé.





2) MAMA ROO ($249)



What is it?
The Mama Roo is considered an electric swing that comes with different types of movements and speeds. It also has the option to add white noise or baby music to help them sleep better during naps.

PROS
- It helps calm a little baby if you are busy and cannot hold it. I used it when pumping. I would put Nico in front of me and pump.
- You can adjust the inclination so the baby can be in a sit position or sleep position.




CONS:
- Big and heavy.
- It might create movement dependency. All sleeping courses recommend you avoiding electric swings since in the long run, it makes the baby dependent to swinging.
- It last around 6 months (until the baby reaches 25 pounds).

It didn't really work for us. Nico didn't like being there for more than 15 minutes. He actually prefer it when it didn't swing.

I know some moms absolutely love it; it depends on the baby but it was a big-no for us.

¿Qu√© es?  Es considerado un "swing" o mecedor de beb√© el√©ctrico que viene con diferentes movimientos y velocidades. Tambi√©n tiene "white noise" y m√ļsica para ayudarlos en sus siestas.

PROS:
- Ayuda mucho a calmar al beb√©, especialmente si est√° ocupada y no puedes tenerlo encima. Yo especialmente lo utilic√© cuando estaba sola y me tocaba sacarme leche con √©l. Lo sentaba en frente de m√≠ y ah√≠ se medio entreten√≠a. Tambi√©n lo llevaba al ba√Īo y el se quedaba acostado ah√≠ mientras yo me ba√Īaba, secaba el cabello, etc.


CONTRA:
-Grande y pesado.
- Puede crear dependencia al movimiento. Lo primero que le√≠ en cualquier art√≠culo de sue√Īo es que evites swings que hagan al beb√© dependiente del movimiento para dormir.
- Dura alrededor de 6 meses ( o hasta las 25 libras)- realmente es poco.

A nosotros no nos funcionó, Nico no podía estar ahí más de 15 minutos, y le gustaba más cuando no se movía. Pero hay mamás que les FASCINA. Si me preguntan, yo más bien recomendaría los swings que no son eléctricos si no que el bebé se mueve para auto-calmarse.







3) DOONA STROLLER ($499)



What is it?
It's a stroller that turns into a car-seat.

PROS
- Convenient.
- Great for traveling. Especially because airlines accept two pieces (one at check in and one at the gate); so you can take the stroller until the gate and avoid any damage to the second piece.
- It comes with a carseat base but it is not necessary if you are running around in an uber.
- For our baby, it was more comfortable than the Britax carseat.
- Everyone is amazing at how easy it is to transform it to/from a carseat.
- If the baby falls asleep in the car, you don't have to wake him to take him out of the carseat.





CONS:
- It only lasts around a year since the baby must be under 35 pounds and 32 inches. I regret not getting it since day one.
- More expensive that other strollers.
- No space to hang the diaper bag.
- You can get extra accessories, but that of course also adds to the final cost of the stroller.

We personally love it and think it's 100% worth it.

¿Qu√© es?  Es un asiento de beb√© para el carro que se transforma en coche.

PROS:
- Perfecto para viajar. Ya que las aerol√≠neas aceptan 2 piezas (generalmente chequeas el asiento con las maletas y el coche en la puerta); pero aqu√≠ te puedes llevar la pieza completa hasta la puerta del avi√≥n y hay menos riesgo que se da√Īe como equipaje.
- No solo es perfecto en el avión si no al viajar; donde puedes montarlo en cualquier Uber de manera sencilla.
- Nosotros personalmente sentimos a Nico más cómodo que en el asiento de carro que tenía antes (de Britax).
- Toda persona que lo ve, le impresiona mucho lo sencillo que es de transformar en coche. No necesitas ayuda de nadie para abrirlo o cerrarlo.
- Si el bebé se queda dormido en el carro, no hay necesidad de despertarlo moviéndolo al coche- o viceversa.
- Sencillo de maniobrar, no se siente tosco o pesado.


CONTRA:
-No es duradero. Puede que dure alrededor de un a√Īo (ya que el beb√© debe pesar menos de 35 libras o medir menos de 32 pulgadas). Yo me arrepiento de no haberlo tenido desde el d√≠a que salimos del hospital.
- Costoso comparado al coche promedio.
- No tiene espacio para guindar la patalear.
- Venden accesorios aparte que son costos extras que se deben tomar en cuenta.

Nosotros lo recomendamos al 100%- especialmente a familias todo terreno que les guste viajar.







4) SNOO ($1,295)



What is it?
It is a gorgeous bassinet that moves to encourage longer baby sleep.

PROS
- It's absolutely beautiful.  Anyone who sees this bassinet falls in love with the modern and gender neutral design.
- Since it moves, it comes with an integrated swaddle that are also recommended for longer sleep.
- Easy to assemble.
- Thanks to the movement, baby sleeps better and longer.
- It connects to an app where you can track sleep times, quality of sleep, etc.
- The website where it's sold offers great discounts frequently. We got it 60% off during President's day.
- Great customer service.



CONS:
- The basinet moves ALL night. I thought it would swing when the baby cried, but it actually moves faster and faster as the baby cries...it never stops moving.
- I personally believe it creates movement dependency. This made me stop using it. I was worried about the transition to the big crib when he would be older. We only used it for 1 months and I definitely think it made my baby need rocking for sleep.
- It only comes with a swaddle of each size . I recommended getting at least two, in case of any diaper spills or spit ups.

I personally do not think it's worth it. Either way you need a bigger crib AND you will end up with a spoiled baby. It feels like a band-aid for a bigger issue.

¿Qu√© es?  Es una cuna de reci√©n nacido (basinet) que con movimiento, ayuda al beb√© a dormir m√°s profundo. Viene con un swaddle y "sonido blanco"

PROS:
- Es preciosa. Si hay algo que uno r√°pidamente piensa al ver el SNOO, es que es visualmente muy atractiva y moderna.
- Ya que la cuna se mueve, viene con un swaddle incluido- que ya es algo que se le recomienda a los padres hacer desde peque√Īitos para que duerman mejor.
- F√°cil de armar.
- Gracias al movimiento, el beb√© duerme mejor (la p√°gina promete una hora o dos horas m√°s de sue√Īo cada d√≠a).
- Viene conectada a una aplicaci√≥n de tel√©fono donde puedes ver cuanto durmi√≥ el beb√©, la calidad de sue√Īo, etc.
- La p√°gina ofrece muchos descuentos. Puedes encontrarla a 50% de descuento frecuentemente.


CONTRA:
- La cuna se mueve TODA la noche. Yo pensaba que era solo cuando el bebé lloraba. Pero al detectar que el bebé llora, se mueve MAS rápido.
- Puede crear dependencia al movimiento. Esto fue lo que hizo que dejara de usarla, me preocupaba mucho el momento que decidiéramos dejar de usarla y como no iba a poder dormir. También siento que por culpa de esta cuna, a Nico le costaba mucho dormirse sin que fuese mecido.
- Solo trae un swaddle de cada talla, por lo que hay que comprar extra. *es decir costo a√Īadido a lo ya costosa de la cuna).


Yo no la recomiendo, me parece que la transición a una cuna es muy complicada. Puede que ayude los primeros meses pero a largo plazo solo será más difícil.






5) ERGOBABY CARRIER 360 ($160)



What is it?
The Ergobaby is an ergonomic carrier that you can use to hold your baby from day 1 to 48 months.

PROS
- Easy to put on.
- Different styles and colors. Ours is made of breathable mesh, perfect for the Miami weather.
- Lumbar support.
- It grows with your baby.
- You can use it in four different positions (back, front, on your back, and hip).




CONS:
It really don't have any cons. Only that it is on the expensive side.

¿Qu√© es?  Es un porta beb√© ergon√≥mico que puedes utilizar desde el d√≠a uno con tu beb√© hasta los 48 meses.

PROS:
- Lo puedes usar en diferentes posiciones (de frente, de espalda, en tu espalda, y en la cadera).
- Muy sencillo de poner- no necesitas ayuda.
- El que nosotros tenemos (Cool Air Mesh), tiene una tela que respira - perfecta para climas como el de Miami.
- Perfecto para bebés que aman estar cargados y quieren ver el mundo.
- Tiene soporte lumbar.
- Viene en muchos colores.
- Va creciendo con tu bebé, muy duradero.



CONTRA:
-Realmente no tengo muchos contras sobre ese porta bebé, aparte de su precio- es excelente.
