I have 3 kids – 2 boys and 1 toddler girl, all with lots of energy. I know when people walk into our house, or even worse, when we walk into other people’s homes, there is a ton of energy in the space we inhabit. We’re pretty used to it though. When out kids are running around our house, playing chase or fighting loudly, sometimes it doesn’t even register on my radar screen.
I have this theory that there are two types of households, those that accept (embrace even?) Read more…
Thanks to all our entrants into the Winter Competition… We have loved reading about how you and your little ones celebrate the Holiday Season and keep safe, warm and entertained.
The Winner of the Universal Winter Package (generated by random.org) is Lauren P with her comment ” Growing up, it was always holiday cooking with my family. Now that I am a mommy myself, we have a new tradition of driving – or going for a walk – to look at Christmas lights. My husband is really into it and we go almost every weekend… usually both Saturday & Sunday. We put the kids in Christmas jammies & let them watch lights until the fall asleep. It’s a great way to wind down from the day! Merry Christmas All!”

At Valco Baby, we understand that buying a stroller is one of the hardest decisions parents have to make. It’s a big investment and the choices seem endless. So we asked our friend Janet McLaughlin, aka “Strollerqueen,” to share her advice and here’s what she had to say.
Without question, the hardest piece of baby gear to buy is the stroller. People agonize over it. They say they spend more time researching which stroller to get, than they do on buying a car! There are a few reasons. Read more…

Just a little bit about myself in case you want to know who’s the Jo writing these blogs. My name is Jo Ilfeld and I was one of the co-owners of Let’s Go Strolling, an online baby gear boutique. This means I’ve tried out 100s of strollers, baby carriers and most other trendy baby gear that is out there (feel free to ask a ? if you think I can help). The Let’s Go Strolling store lives on but without me since we sold it in 2009.
I’m also a Mom to 3 occasionally adorable, always challenging kids. My oldest son is 8 ½ , my middle son is 5 1/2 and my baby girl is already 2 1/2 , wow does time fly! Note how important the ½ years are to my kids. . . Read more…
It is my greatest pleasure to write the inaugural post and introduction to the Valco Baby blog. Valco Baby was founded in Australia by my father over 30 Years ago, as a way to support his family of 5 children. Since those beginnings, Valco has progressed to the next generation, and as the youngest of those 5 children, I opened up a North American Branch almost 7 years ago and currently have 4 young children of my own! How the world has changed since then, in terms of products and especially in the way we communicate and obtain information!
As a parent of a growing family, I am well aware that time and how it is utilized is a precious commodity. The purpose of this blog is to provide you with a resource of relevant information in an entertaining manner from contributors who have all sorts of industry experience and most significantly, they are parents or just like you.
Please feel free to send me your feedback email@example.com with suggestions or even posts that may be helpful to others that we can high light on the blog!
