ATTITUDE Little Ones – Conscious Baby Products

I recently had the chance to review four awesome Little Ones products by ATTITUDE - a company that believes that baby products should have minimal impact on a child’s life.  I especially like reviewing products from companies like this for obvious reasons.  Makes me feel a little better about the things I expose my baby to in this crazy world and if I can consciously use baby products for everyday things that I know aren’t harmful or as harmful as other options, then all the better.

Unfortunately the bike seat didn’t allow for any additional storage and it didn’t work so well when both my kids (3 and 7) wanted to join me on my rides. Read more…
