Questions from Readers

Hi there --- Congratulations on the recent delivery of your baby boy and for sharing your experience. He is such a cutie!! Secondly, I found your blog through a link on someone else's blog and it is now one of my favorites. My younger sister is expecting twin boys in May and your blog has been so informative -- particularly your links for all things baby ! Your custom crib bedding is so pretty and my sister is currently in the process of choosing a pattern. Do you have any advice regarding crib bedding. One of her friends told her that custom bedding isn't really necessary b/c it is so hard to wash the bumper, sheets, etc. Have you found this to be true? Would you do anything differently?

Hi MM,

Congrats to your sister! I LOVE My custom crib bedding from Monarch Creations. I spent a lot of time worrying about spending too much, but decided after a lot of searching that it was by far my favorite. I was very lucky and my parents bought the bedding for me as a gift. However, I live in a small NYC apt so the crib is very much a part of our decor. I have to tell you I have not regreted getting my bedding at all. Every single time I look at it, it makes me smile! =) Tell your sister to get what works for her. As far as washing, I bought regular sheets and plan to use the ultimate crib sheet when baby J is a little older. I don't think I'll really ever have to wash the bumper?? I plan to take it off as soon as baby J is old enough to move around in the crib.

Thanks for reading!!




I wanted to stop by and say hello because I am one of your followers and I need some advice! My best friend and I are coming to NYC for the Martha Stewart show's Lilly edition. I was wondering if you knew of any good places to eat around the Madison Square Garden area (that's where we are staying). Or the Chelsea Park area is close to the studio that is located on W. 26th St., between 7th and 8th Avenues. This is my first trip to NYC and I really want it to be fabulous! Hope Baby J is doing well!




You are so lucky to go to the big show! I wish I could go--got an extra ticket and a babysitter? =) I live on the UES (Upper East Side) so that is where my semi-expertise lies as far as restaurants. I did a post for someone awhile back here. Maybe that will help. There are so many fabulous restaurants! Can you give me a little more info? Budget? Type of food? If you send me another email maybe I can help a little bit more. You are going to have a great time! Are you going to Hopsy's meet up? I'm going to try to make it with Baby J. Hope to see you there!

I totally thought I would never have to wash the bumper either - that is until my son had projectile vomit one night (at 3 months old). ALL. OVER. EVERYTHING. I hope you don't have that happen :)
