Mamas Marketplace: Cool stuff for moms and kids

Let’s talk car seats. For me, Jackson arrived on Oct. 29, so I needed to “winterize” his travel as much as possible. And with his stiff neck, I also needed something that would keep him facing forward.

American Baby magazine has coupon codes in every issue for a free one, so you just pay the $12 for shipping! And, they have more than a dozen styles to choose from.

Then, I bought a Kiddopotamus car seat insert for about $10 on Amazon. One side is lined with fabric to keep Jack warm in the winter and the other side is perfect for summer heat. It keeps his head stationary and lets him grow into the car seat over time.
