New Product Review Club Offer: vitafusion™ MultiVites™ Gummy Vitamins

Thursday July 17, 2014 by Claire

Here are 9 summer essentials you can’t go wrong with:

Tuesday July 8, 2014 by ChickAdvisor Team


I'm always looking for these so-called "teachable moments" when instructing my kids about personal hygiene.

New Product Review Club Offer: Nestlé GERBER® Oat & Prune Baby Cereal

Tuesday June 17, 2014 by Claire


I'm a mom of three, so you know I've seen it all. One of the funniest parenting experiences I have had was the pleasure of introducing my babies to solid foods. 

New parents sometimes ask me: "How do you know when your baby is ready for solid foods?" Trust me, you just know. Babies go from oblivious, cooing non-participants to eagle-eyed gluttons who will snatch greedily at your fork...
