4moms Moxi Stroller

While a trusty, lightweight umbrella stroller may be sufficient for some, it's no surprise the market is evolving to keep up with moms and dads who expect more bells and whistles, particularly in the tech department. The Moxi, 4moms's latest model, lacks the power-folding functionality of its Origami stroller, but it's less expensive and packs some interesting tricks in its $699.99 frame. It's also five pounds lighter, has a built-in bassinet, and is compatible with a wide range of car seats. On

First Look at the Retro 'Freewrite' Smart Typewriter

My first experience with word processing was on a traditional, turn-the-knob typewriter in the 80s, the dawn of personal computing. By high school, it was replaced by PCs with noisy keys, which took disks that were actually floppy. For the sake of nostalgia, I've considered finding another vintage typewriter, but any writing I care about needs to find its way to a computer, so typing on something not connected to the internet just doubles my work. That's why I jumped at the chance to play with

Tackling My Motion Sickness With Reliefband

Some of my earliest memories involve being in the back of a car, trying not to throw up. Motion sickness has been a lifelong companion, and to this day I've been known to get queasy on winding country roads—even when I'm driving. So when I had to fly from my Missouri home to Texas recently, I was excited to try out the Reliefband during the flight. Reliefband is a wristband that reduces nausea—especially related to motion sickness, VR gaming, and morning sickness—by emitting pulses that stimul...

Hands On: Tracking My Kids' Sleep With HugOne

There are few things a parent obsesses over more than sleep. How do I get my child to sleep easier? How long should she nap? Should she be waking up this much at night? Will I ever sleep in again? It makes sense. If your family isn't getting quality sleep, your kids are irritable, and you can't be productive. How the heck is a sleep-deprived mom supposed to keep her cool when junior insists on another glass of water instead of going to bed? No sleep = no peace.

5 Scary Chemicals That Are Still On The Market

Chemicals get a bad rap, but they're not all evil. Many are natural and essential for your survival (ever heard of H2O?) and others are synthetic—but that's not really what's most important when it comes it your well-being. Some man-made chemicals, for example, keep your clothes clean, lower your risk of cavities, and treat a throbbing headache (or worse). That said, there are other compounds that appear to be downright toxic, especially if you're exposed to them in large enough quantities. Whi

New Autism Dispute: Is Circumcision a Factor?

In the U.S., slightly more than half of boys are circumcised at birth, a much higher percentage than in other industrialized nations. Proponents of circumcision cite lessened risks of sexual disease transmission and penile cancer as well as easier hygiene as the benefits of the practice. But the number of anti-circumcision activists (or “intactivists,” as they’re known) is growing, and their reasons for leaving baby boys uncircumcised range from human rights to sexual pleasure to another hotly-d

On Disability and Accepting Help

I'll never forget the glare I received from an elderly man when I stepped out of my car into the grocery-store parking lot one frigid January afternoon. Yes, I parked in the handicap spot, as my placard permitted, and yes, my legs work just fine. Better than fine, actually. It's the cold. Missouri winters aren't kind to my underdeveloped hands and arms. I have poor circulation. A short walk can become quite painful, especially if I'm trying to carry a bag or a jug of milk or push an unwieldy car

How the Bellabeat Leaf Urban Can Help You Manage Stress

As a work-from-home, home-schooling mom of two preparing to move to a new house, life has been just a tad stressful of late. Okay, super stressful. It's mostly the good kind of stress, but my nerves are still shot. Did I get today's lesson planned? When is our next house showing? Was that a deadline I just heard whooshing by? The answer to all of these questions is: I have no idea. In the midst of all this, I tested Bellabeat's new Leaf Urban wearable, which has coincidentally added a stress-pr
