Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink – Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink   Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Well.ca’s Overstock Sale is back and browsing the various reduced items, I spotted a great deal on the Blue Banana urban pod in pink. Originally priced at $92.96, it’s now on sale for just $55, which is significantly less than the price it’s going for at other stores! Shipping is free as well.

At the very end of Well.ca’s description of this pod, there is a very interesting note:

Note: Car seat not included.

I found this absolutely hilarious and it just made me wonder the kind of complaint that they may have received from a customer who didn’t receive their “expected” car seat. They’re probably just covering their bases to avoid any unhappy customers but it was still funny to read that note!

Summer is upon us and this is a winder pod but it would be perfect for all those of you who are currently expecting or know someone who is. A lot of parents switch from the bucket seat (pictured above) to the convertible car seat that always stay in the car early but a lot of bucket seats can actually be used until the baby is one year old or more. In fact, my car seat can hold up to 30 lbs and we’re still using it even though our baby is nearly one year old! The reason I mention is because even if you’re baby was recently born or is about to be born, then this cover could potentially be used this winter. Well.ca: 40% Off Blue Banana Urban Pod in Pink   Now Just $55 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Any baby sure to not get cold in this thing as it features ultra-soft sherpa fleece on the inside. It has a no slip back panel and a full zipper to keep baby in place. Interestingly enough, it also comes with a fully functional thermometer and a pacifier pouch. While the pacifier pouch definitely seems handy, I’m not so sure about the thermometer, but it’s still a cool feature.

As I already mentioned, the Blue Banana urban pod is significantly more expensive at other stores:

Kido Baby Canada: Leander High Chair Was $330 | Now $200 & Free Shipping

Posted by on April 9, 2015 at 2:00 PM

Kido Baby Canada: Leander High Chair Was $330 | Now $200 & Free Shipping

This chair is super cool! Want a high chair that will convert to a toddler chair, a preschooler chair, to a big kid chair and to an adult chair? Do you want a high chair for your baby that fits in with your modern and adult style? This may be the chair for you! Kido Baby is selling this chair for only $199.99, with a regular price of $329.99. They also offer free shipping on $50.

I found this store while searching Google for price comparisons on a few other items I was thinking of telling you Moosers about. In the end, this deal won out, as this is a fabulous product, now $130 off and the best price around anywhere.

This chair has it all. First, it is a springy-type chair, so kids can bounce around in it. This means that when you need them to sit in their chair for a prolonged time (family dinner, making dinner, sidestepping a mommy breakdown), they can sit there while still being able to move around a bit. Second, the chair is very adjustable, with the back, footstep, and the chair in general adjusting to meet the needs of your child.

I also like that if needed, you can convert this to an adult chair. Paying $200 for a high chair and only using it for a few years can be depressing, but this chair can last for many years, because of this innovative design.

It is made from European Beech and has a simple design and colour scheme. You can get the chair in black, cherry or natural. You can also get cushions, sold separately, for your chair.

Here is how it is priced at other Canadian stores:

I don’t know what the shipping policies are at those stores, so I don’t even know if shipping fees will also be added on those prices. Either way, this price at Kido Baby far beats those prices on this chair.

Toys R Us Canada: $30 Off Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Ultimate Playard – Now $80 & FS!

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 7:40 PM

Toys R Us Canada: $30 Off Summer Infant Pop n Play Ultimate Playard   Now $80 & FS!

Toys R Us has a great deal right now on the Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play Ultimate Playard. Originally priced at $109.99, it’s now on sale for just $79.97. Shipping is also free.

My baby is nearly one year old and a couple of months ago, I got hera superyard to contain her in the living room. At the time, I deliberated between the North States Superyard XT gate, which is now on sale for $124.99 and the Summer Infant Pop ‘n Play ultimate playard, which I’m featuring in this post.

The only reason I got the North States one is because with two cats, I was too scared that the water resistant floor would get torn up to shreds. Otherwise, I would have definitely gone with the Summer Infant playard as it’s lightweight and can easily be transported around.

The one I got is great but it’s very clunky and there is no way to easily transport it. The Summer Infant though is 35″ tall and weighs a total of 12lbs, which is hardly anything for a superyard!

It’s great for babies as young as 6 months and as old as 24 months and the best part is that it can be used either indoors or outdoors. I have to admit that I’m very tempted to get it to use outside in the backyard as it has a removable canopy that is advertised as blocking 98% of harmful UVA and UVB rays.

In fact, at Sears, this same play yard is currently on sale for $87.99.

Out of two reviews, there is a total of 5/5 stars. Here’s one of these reviews:

We use the play yard when going to the beach….i have a 9 month old grandson that loves to put thing in his mouth and this keep the sand out (lol)….i also use it in the back yard for some vitamin D time. He just loves it…lots of room to crawl around

As I already mentioned, shipping is also free but keep in mind that if you add anything else to your cart, then a shipping fee might get tacked on. The more you add to your cart, the less of a shipping discount you typically get but you can always split your order as Toys R Us usually ships orders over $25 for free.

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

Posted by on April 7, 2015 at 8:17 AM

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

If there is a baby in your future, you may want to jump on this deal. Today only Best Buy Canada is offering the Summer Infant Baby Touch 2.0 Video monitor as the deal of the day. This monitor was $270 but is now only $149.99. This order also qualifies you for free shipping.

A video baby monitor is something I very naively thought when I was pregnant was unnecessary. For a smaller home, I assumed you are going to hear the baby cry through an audio monitor and that would work fine. What I did not anticipate is constantly wondering if I should check on the baby every time I heard any sound over the audio monitor. A friend gifted us her video monitor that she no longer needed and I was sold. The monitor made it so much easier to tell whether I needed to head back into the baby’s room or not. Whenever I have my second child, a video monitor has moved much higher on the list of kid gear I want in our house.

Features

You can get your own video monitor and save yourself from my mistakes. This Summer Infant brand monitor is the 2.0 model and is equipped with a three and a half inch high resolution screen that will show you your child in day or night time. You can also talk back and forth through the monitor with another person, a handy feature when there is a diaper explosion. This is an expandable monitor system, so you can purchase more and add them to monitor more than one child’s room. There is a one-year manufacturer warranty on parts only.

Price Comparison

I priced compared this model around the web to see what the competition had to offer and here is what I found. If you were to pick up this same monitor @ Walmart.ca  you will pay $239.97. Snugglebugz.ca specializes in baby items and gear, and has this monitor priced at $269.99. Sears Canada has a comparable Summer brand monitor that looks to be the first generation of this model for $239.99.

Reviews

The one review on this monitor on Best Buy is a bit tricky. It appears the reviewer had trouble with the website and rated it three stars even though she really intended to rate it four and a half. Here is that review:

Today Only: Summer Infant Baby Touch Digital Video Baby Monitor Was $270 | Now $150 & Free Shipping @ Best Buy Canada (EXPIRED)

This monitor is a great price today. If I had another kid on the horizon, I would snag one for myself. Shipping will be free on this unit as it more than meets the minimum of $25 to qualify for free shipping. The daily deals at Best Buy have not been lasting all day lately when they are hot, so you may want to snag yours now.

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

Posted by on March 30, 2015 at 9:10 AM

Babies R Us: Chicco Lullaby Playard Was $280 | Now $200 & BOGO 50% Off

A playard is pretty much a must-have with a baby and toddler. It seems they’ve changed the name from play pen, maybe because that sounded a little restrictive for the child. Right now, Toys R Us has the Chicco Lullaby playard on sale for $199.98, with a regular price of $269.99. On top of that, they have a buy one, get one 50% off on all clearance items, including this one. There is a limit of one per customer on this playard, so you can’t buy two and get the second 50% off, but you can see what other items you might need from the clearance section for 50% off.

If you are a new parent, you might think a playard is a frivolous item, but you would not be correct. I loved having mine on the main floor, where I used it for diaper changes, naps when I wanted to be around the baby, and eventually to keep him safe while I did a few things and he wanted to crawl up the bookshelves. Obviously, you don’t want to keep baby in the playard all day, but there are many instances (like whn you have to cook dinner) when you need him/her safe and contained.

A playard is also important for when you’ll be going on road trips and want to make sure your baby is sleeping safely. You really can’t count on those hotel cribs. We also took ours camping so my baby wasn’t crawling around in the dirt all the time.

This playard is a lot more deluxe than the one I had ten years ago and mine was considered deluxe then. It has an incorporated elevated bassinet and change table. There are toys that go with the bassinet or can be taken off to use as a play mat. It also has added features like music, vibration and a nightlight. I also like that it has a push-button folding mechanism before for the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to get my playard down and back up again. It also has wheels so you can cart it around very easily.

When I researched around, I found this playard selling for $280 at Snugglebugz.

For your second item, I’d suggest another high-priced item, like the high chairs or strollers on sale. When I added the BabyHome Eat high chair to my cart, it came down to $84.99, from a regular price of $189.98.

Shipping for these large items won’t be free, but you’ll get a $10 discount and for both items, I had shipping at a total of $13 in my cart.

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Posted by on March 26, 2015 at 10:32 AM

Best Buy Canada: Sealy Baby Posturpedic Crib Mattress Was $170 | Now $100 & Free Shipping (EXPIRED)

Having a new baby or know someone who is? This deal from Best Buy is perfect for any new parent who needs this important staple for the nursery. Get the Sealy Baby posturpedic crib mattress from Best Buy, with a regular price of $169.99, now only $99.99 and free shipping.

I actually know a few people having a new baby. One friend is having her first, another her fifth. Either way, both need a new crib mattress for the new crib. I think this is a great deal and I’m going to stress the importance of getting a high quality mattress for baby. The first reason is that you want your baby to be comfortable. I bought a mattress once at Walmart super cheap and it showed. There was a spring sticking into my poor little man’s back, so we got him a new one. The second reason is that you want baby to sleep in his/her crib, so you want it to be as comfortable as possible. Sealy is a popular brand name in mattresses, so you know you are going to get quality.

This mattress has even won awards, which says a lot! It has a coil system that adapts to the movements of your baby with firm support. You want firm support, especially in the early months, as baby can’t really lift his/her head and you don’t want their face squished into the mattress. But, saying that, this mattress is also plush for comfort.

It is Greenguard certified, which means that it has low chemical emissions. New babies are like sponges from their environment, so this is a nice feature, but I’d also suggest setting up the mattress a few months in advance so it off-gases before baby sleeps there.

There are good reviews and one that seems like the reviewer got a defective mattress.

The previous week my daughter was waking up every day around 11 pm, crying. When we changed the mattress she woke up for a little bit the first night, but she stopped doing that. I don’t know if the mattress made any difference, I just know she needed something firm with more support.

I shopped around and found this is the best deal around. Snugglebugz sells this mattress for $190. Toys R Us sells it for $170.

Best Buy offers free shipping on $25, so this item will also come straight to your door without extra fees.

In-Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes – Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Posted by on March 24, 2015 at 5:02 PM

In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

No joke, I had been waiting for Huggies wipes to go on sale at Costco for a couple of months now and I’m so happy to see that they’re $6 off again that I’m probably going to buy 5 boxes! Usually priced at $26.49, you can get a box of 1,160 Huggies Natural Care Plus wipes on sale for just $20.49. This offer is only in-stores.

Apparently these wipes went on sale in February but I have to admit that I missed that sale. Last time I saw these wipes get reduced by $6 last summer, if I remember correctly, and at that time, hubby thought I was crazy for getting 6 boxes. Luckily, my hoarding paid off because not only did we not have to worry about getting more wipes for more than half a year but we also saved $36! Every penny counts when you have a baby, especially a newborn. In Stores Only: $6 Off Huggies 1,160 Pack Huggies Natural Care Plus Wipes   Now Just $20.49 @ Costco (HOT!)

Do keep in mind that this offer in-stores only and you need to be a Costco member to take advantage of it. If you’re not a member, then you could always go with someone who is as any member is allowed to bring one non-member guest.

In a fit of desperation for more wipes, I bought that Kirkland Signature Tencel baby wipes that were discounted by $4.50, down to $23.49. Reading reviews online convinced me to get them but even discounted, it wasn’t as good of a deal as the reduced in priced Huggies ones.

Here’s a quick price comparison of the prices for each box:

  • 1,160 Huggies wipes @ $20.49 = $0.018
  • 900 Kirkland wipes @ $23.49 = $0.026 per wipe

So not only are the Huggies boxes a significantly better deal over the Kirkland ones but I also prefer them. The Huggies ones never dried out, while the Kirkland seem to quickly lose their wetness if the bag happens to be left open accidentally. I like that the Kirkland wipes are softer to the touch but since they’re slightly bigger than the Huggies ones, it made me wonder if maybe that was the reason for there being less wipes per box (900 instead of 1,160 or more).

Both brands are great but from a budget standpoint, there really isn’t any arguing with which brand is the most economical one. I believe that most Costco warehouses also currently has Frozen-themed boxes of Huggies wipes, which could be exciting if you have other kids who are currently obsessed with this Disney movie.

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Posted by on March 18, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Roots Canada Promo Code: B1G1 Baby & Kids Clothes

Roots coupon codes are so rarely released nowadays that I thought I would let you know of their newest one: right now, you can use the code below to take advantage of a “buy one, get one 50% off” deal on all baby, kids or toddler merchandise.

Click here to shop for kids clothes @ Roots.com now

  • Coupon Code: MARCHBOGO
  • Discount: BOGO on all regularly-priced kids clothes
  • Expires: 23rd March 2015

Just like Joe Fresh, Roots Canada is one of those brands of clothing that is super comfy and long-lasting. With regards to kids’ clothing, you don’t necessarily need it to be long-lasting as they grow out of it so quick but if you’re hoping to have more kids or have someone else to pass it on to, then Roots is definitely one of those brands that is worth investing into, especially when you can take advantage of promotions like these.

I suspect that my daughter is still too little for the Irene full zip hoody but I’m thinking of getting it for her for later on as it’s just too adorable looking. Priced at $34, it features a drawstring at the waist and what I love it the most is that it’s 80% cotton, which means that it’s sure to be warm and long-lasting for sure.

Plus, they would match with the Irene sweatpant priced at $24. Both of these items come in a “dusty pink colour”. If you were to get both in one order, then the pants would drop down to just $12.50.

Now, the Roots coupon above won’t apply to already reduced merchandise but it’s worth checking out that section anyways as everything has currently been reduced by an additional 20%. Keep in mind that the prices you see in the sale section are the final ones and that they all of these items will be further discounted at checkout.

The Bridget check shirt for boys, for instance, was originally $44, is currently on sale for $21.87 and further drops down to just $17.50. It’s a red and black checkered shirt made entirely from cotton. It looks more of a winter kind of shirt to wear, so if you have a little boy, then you could get it for him to grow into for next winter.

Shipping is free on orders over $50.

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 16, 2015 at 2:30 PM

Best Buy & Future Shop: Fisher Price Grow with Me High Chair Was $100 | Now $60 & Free Shipping

Best Buy and Future Shop have discounted the Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair from $99.99 down to $59.99. As the high chair costs over $25, the Grow-with-Me chair will ship for free to your home.

There are several different colours of this high chair, but Best Buy and Future Shop only have the brown colourway discounted. I price compared with three other stores. Walmart Canada sells this high chair for $99.97. Sears Canada has two different Fisher-Price Grow-with-Me High Chair colours priced at $99.99 each. The only place I found as good a deal as the twins (BB & FS), is at Amazon Canada where the chair is also on sale for $59.99. It is the #1 bestseller in baby high chairs right now. However, only 10 are left in stock at Amazon.

Because of the bestselling rating on Amazon, and how little stock Amazon has left, I figured this was certainly a deal worth blogging about. I know that Future Shop and Best Buy will tell you whether stock falls below 20; thus, both the retail giants have ample stock right now.

Neither Future Shop nor Best Buy had reviews for the product, so I consulted Amazon. One reviewer was quite precise in what she wanted from a high chair:

Great high chair. I bought this one because it isn’t upholstered like a sofa. Seriously, what is with almost every other high chair. These things get slathered in food so I wanted one with minimal, easy to remove and wash padding. This chair is perfect for that and it is simple to use.

Other reviewers tend to like the high chair but find it narrower than others they have used. This makes the chair compact, but it can be hard to retrieve your flailing food sprinkler. Some reviewers thought it was perfect for babies, while others said it works better for toddlers.

There is an added bonus of shopping baby supplies at Future Shop and Best Buy right now. Get $25 off your next baby purchase of $50+ when you spend $100+ on baby and kids products right now. As the Baby Sale is going on, with up to 40% off baby supplies, this is an excellent time to be shopping for a new addition to the family.

Well.ca: Up to 45% Off Grobags & Free Shipping

Posted by on March 16, 2015 at 12:45 PM

Well.ca: Up to 45% Off Grobags & Free Shipping

Well.ca has is offering up to 45% off Grobags from The Gro Company. You stick your little one in these popular little bags. Many different sizes are available.

Grobags are this adorable little baby sleeping bags. Think of a blanket combined with a jumper that your little one wears instead of a traditional blanket. Each grobag has a neck opening and armholes so it can be worn. The bottom is closed in to keep your baby warm. You can pop open the grobag easily – the shoulder straps unfasten.

These bags are usually quite expensive! I looked back at previous sales on them to find grobags for $45 and a few other small deals, but nothing that takes your average baby sleeping bag into the $20-$30 range.

This Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Anorak Trundling Tractors was $60.49 and is now $33. The bag is designed for infants – age zero to six months. This Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 3.5 Tog Fly A Kite features the most beautiful print you could imagine. It would be great for babies of either sex and it looks really pretty too. The bag is on sale for the same price as the tractor bag.

Do you have a budget under $30? There are still a few good options! The Grobag Travel Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog (carnival print) is on sale from $49.99 down to $28. The travel grobags fit a five-point harness so your little one can be loaded into a pushchair or car seat while they nap. The Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog  is also a very good price. Originally $49.99, this grobag is on sale for $28.

For older babies, the prices are competitive. I found two bags priced in the $30 range for children 6 months to 18 months. First, the Grobag Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Rascal Raccoon was $59.99 and is now $33. This is a regular sleep bag with a cute print. For travelling, pick up the Grobag Travel Baby Sleep Bag 2.5 Tog Up & Away that was $54.99 and is now $34. This one is compatible with the five-point harness. Between these two grobags, you would have a bag for nap time, bed time, and travel time. Last time I blogged a deal for Grobags, Anna said:

These are fantastic, I used a few with my little girl.

There are many other bag designs to choose from in this sale. All sale grobags are $28 or more, thus they will all qualify for free shipping. Well.ca has free shipping on a $25 $29 minimum.

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Posted by on March 15, 2015 at 11:02 AM

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

Baby, baby, baby oooh… grab some cheap baby clothes right now at Walmart but sizes are limited and are going fast. Select George onesies, pants and shirts are on clearance for just $2, from a regular price of $4 or more. As always, shipping is absolutely free.

My baby girl is growing so fast… *cries*. It’s great and it’s not but with regards to the latter, it’s not so great when her clothing suddenly stopping fitting her. I’m not a fan of overpaying for clothes, so clearances like these are just what I look for.

A bit of virtual digging is required for this clearance offer because sizes are limited but here’s an overview of the clothes that I picked up for my little girl:

George Baby Clothes On Clearance Just $2 @ Walmart Canada + Free Shipping

I got the George Little Diva onesie, blue leggings, pink jogging pants and the greige ruffle runic — all for a grand total of $8 before tax. These purchases would have otherwise cost me $16 and even more with tax if they had been regularly-priced.

If your baby is under a year old or perhaps not even born yet, I suggest that you think ahead and maybe get a couple of sizes for them to grown into. Keep in mind the changing weather though as your little one wouldn’t necessarily need a long-sleeved top during the summer months. Plus, don’t forget that most babies need much bigger pants for their age as these tend to be on the shorter side.

For those of you with little boys, hurry up and get the “Girls Dig Me” shirt as it’s just too cute! It’s only available for sizes of up to 6 months and is also just $2!

Having to spend a set amount of money just to qualify for free shipping at most stores isn’t something I particularly enjoy and end up not buying anything anyways, so, the best part about clearances like these at Walmart is definitely the free shipping offer. You could pick up just one pair of pants or just one onesie for $2 and still have it shipped straight to your door at no extra cost.

JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag Was $90 | Now $54 & Free Shipping @ Well.ca

Posted by on March 13, 2015 at 1:52 PM

JJ Cole Satchel Diaper Bag Was $90 | Now $54 & Free Shipping @ Well.ca

Well.ca has a great price on the JJ Cole Satchel diaper bag on sale right now. This bag was $90 but is now only $53.99. Free shipping is included in all orders over $25 at Well.ca and this item qualifies. Many more items are on sale up to 75% in their Warehouse Spring Blowout.

The first diaper bag I used with my daughter was a JJ Cole bag. I was impressed with the quality and durability. As a new parent, I stuffed that bag way too full on a daily basis. My JJ Cole bag held up to regular tossing, dropping and other abuse from both my husband and I for over a year before the lining eventually gave way and ripped.  We put that bag through a full durability test.

This Charcoal Infinity version should stand up equally well to the daily wear and tear that any parent puts on a diaper bag. I like the print on this bag, having a little bit of a pattern helps keep your bag looking fresh. This bag has seven exterior pockets and four interior pockets. It also includes a bottle pocket, which also works as a sippy cup pocket or a water bottle pocket. Inside the bag is a diaper changing pad, straps to attach it to your stroller and a shoulder strap that is detachable.

Looking at the competition, this deal is spot on at Well.ca. If you were to purchase this from Babyrama Canada you will pay $69.99. You could pay $79.99 for this same diaper bag at Bed Bath and Beyond Canada. For the same bag at Amazon.ca you will pay $83.78. Your best bet is to buy this at Well.ca.

No reviews are on Well.ca for this bag. Over at Amazon, buyers seem very happy including this reviewer who can fit enough supplies for two kids in this bag.

I did find some other deals at the Well.ca sale. Standard shipping at Well.ca is $5.95, which means it is much better to buy these smaller items as part of a larger order that totals $25 or more and qualify for free shipping. The good news is if you are buying the diaper bag, these low priced items are great to throw in your bag as the cherry on top.

This deal is set to last through the weekend, but the stock looks limited. You may want to grab your deals before the stock is gone.

Amazon.ca: Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Portable Potty Was $25 | Now $13 (FS @ $25)

Posted by on March 11, 2015 at 3:17 PM

Amazon.ca: Fisher Price 2 in 1 Portable Potty Was $25 | Now $13 (FS @ $25)

You have a baby and suddenly you do not have any money to spare. If this sounds like you, then check out the Fisher-Price 2-in-1 Portable Potty. It is on sale from $24.99 down to $12.60. Receive free shipping on orders of $25 or more.

Just a warning, the initial description right under the price is not for this item – it is an error. However, you can read further down where the specs are given for this unit. This travel potty features a folding ring that fits into a discreet tote. This way you can take it along when you travel and use it in public restrooms. The seat legs also fold down for easy storage. Three standard size (four gallon) waste bags are included with potty. There is also a splashguard to help boys keep it in the toilet. Ideal for potty training away from home, this is a convenient and inexpensive portable potty.

Reviewers are somewhat divided on the potty – but most the reviews on Amazon.COM are positive. This one reviewer was ecstatic at how multi-purpose this seat was:

Another great feature is that the seat is a dual use seat for travel, topping standard sized potties found in public restrooms. We haven’t used it anywhere public yet, but did try it on our home toilet & it worked great

Other reviewers have complained that the seat is too large, but it is designed to fit on a standard size toilet as well. Another reviewer liked the size of the seat as it works well for older kids.

Another reviewer was happy about convenience. They do not have to worry about going to a playground or park without convenient washrooms. She can just set it up in the back of her SUV without issues. The reviewer said:

This portable potty has become my new best potty training friend… I also appreciate that I can use almost any plastic bag for this, and the top seat doubles as a public restroom seat. Super user friendly!

You will not need to buy any special bags for this as it works with a variety of bags.

I could not find this potty anywhere else in Canada. However, most places in the USA had the potty for $19.98 US up to $24.98 US. The cheapest potty (any brand) on Walmart Canada is still $15 and it is not terribly portable. For $13, I think this is a great investment.

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Baby’s First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Best Buy Canada: 50% Off Babys First Mobile and Bumper Sets

Best Buy Canada is offering 50% off Baby’s First bumper sets and mobiles. Orders of $25 or more will ship to your home for free.

Mobiles

First off, let us look at some precious mobiles for your baby. The Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Safari was $39.99 and is now on sale for $19.99. This adorable mobile will fit on most cribs and cradles. The safari mobile plays a Brahms’ lullaby while your little one watches the cute little safari animals. A lion, elephant, giraffe, and a monkey swing from the mobile.

Secondly, the Baby’s First Musical Mobile – Owl Swing is on sale from $49.99 down to $24.99. I love the colour scheme of blue and yellow on this mobile and think it is my favourite of the two. The mobile plays a Brahm lullaby and your wee one will enjoy the owl and birds above.

Bumper Sets

Bumper sets come in matching colours and patterns to the above two mobiles! The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Safari is an excellent match for the mobile above and will really tie your baby’s room together. Originally $39.99, the safari bumper set is on sale for $19.99.

As you might expect, there is also a sale bumper set to match the gorgeous owls. The Baby’s First Crib Bumper Set – Owl Swing was $59.99 and is now on sale for $29.99. The pastel yellow and blue colour is carried throughout the bumpers.

You will probably want to buy a set. The safari set is the least expensive – coming to $39.98 for the set. However, you want a set that you will like looking at for a couple years, so the owl set might match your tastes for. That set, when put together, costs just a bit more at $54.98.

This is part of a larger sale on Baby’s First items. There are many items on sale but these were the best deals. If you are looking for other matching pieces, be sure to check out the rest of the sale. Purchase sheets, bedding, crib sets, and more.

I tried price comparing these items with other retailers. I found a pink version of the Safari at Sears Canada for $39.99. I found bumper sets by Baby’s First for $34.97 at Walmart Canada. Overall, I am quite pleased with this deal and hope our Moosers love it.

Thanks to FeliciaC for posting this deal on our forum.

Amazon Canada: ErgoBaby Designer Series Carrier Was $150 | Now $110 & Free Shipping

Amazon Canada: ErgoBaby Designer Series Carrier Was $150 | Now $110 & Free Shipping

Having a baby soon or need a shower gift? I’ve got a great deal for you from Amazon on the Ergobaby Designer Series Christy Turlington Burns carrier in Umba. Regularly $150, it is selling for $109.95 and you’ll also get free shipping.

Having a carrier for your baby is probably more important than having a stroller. I have friends who swear by the Ergo carrier, and one of the best things about them is that they are gorgeous carriers. While I had a Baby Bjorn, it was kind of boring. It also didn’t have the ergonomic features that the ErgoBaby ones have, and it probably would have helped my back!

Because it looks like Amazon screwed up on the description of this item and actually has the description of a frame, I went right to the source and got you some details from the ErgoBaby website. Don’t worry, your carrier won’t just hold a 5×7 photo.

This particular carrier is part of the Designer series, but it looks like it is the original style. The original is actually award winning and has padded shoulder straps and waistband. It is that waistband that the Baby Bjorn didn’t have that I would have more than appreciated. Also, the padding looks a lot more deluxe than what I was used. It also has a hood, which keeps baby’s head comfortable when they are small or are napping.

I also like that it distributes the weight to you between your shoulders and hips so not just one area takes the load. You can also wear it in different carry positions, even when you are pregnant! I read the Why Ergo on that site, and I think this could convince you as well.

As you can see on that site, the originals that aren’t even in the designer series sell for a minimum of $115 and that is in U.S. dollars plus shipping. As for selling in Canada, I didn’t find the designer series selling at many other stores, but at ByNature it sells without the designer collection for $140. The original also sells at Baby Style for $130. I did find the exact model at Tadpoles and Butterflies for $150.

If you are curious about this particular pattern, it is actually a great story. As you might know, Christy Turlington Burns is a former supermodel who started the Every Mother Counts initiative. The pattern was actually created by a mother in Togo using wooden blocks. What a great story your carrier also comes with!
