Gifts for the kids instead of an iPad
I’m a mother of 2 small people in NYC. We pride ourselves on keeping the kids busy and using as little screen time as possible (sometimes as much as necessary). The beauty of this situation is that my kids love TV, so it’s perfect in case of emergencies and I feel like a good mom (mostly). These are the things that I use regularly in place of screens.

Little Spoon, Strawberry Banana Shake
Nutritious and delicious kids food. I keep the fruit smoothies in the freezer as a frozen treat, these are good on the go and great to supplement meal time… We like to make meal time prep a big thing to extend the activity beyond the actual eating.
Artipoppe, Zeitgeist Carrier
The classic denim made getting around with young children a dream. Perfect for bringing an immobile baby to a toddler’s soccer class or school drop-off. You still feel cute with their designs and prints.
Oso & Me, Reversible Grow pants
Explanation: They grow with your child (adjustable waist buttons and cuffs) for 3 growth spurts. It’s incredible to have clothes that fit longer than a month. And are gender neutral to share between brother and sister. Plus these pants are reversible, so 2 for the price of 1!
