Brilliant Solution for Stroller Storage!

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Mary Ann, the founder of MetroTOTS. She gave me information about her brilliant invention called the StrollAway. I told her that I had to have one.

The StrollAway is every NYC and apartment dwellers answer to stroller storage. The StrollAway is a sturdy steel hanger that goes over the door to store your wheels out of the way, which is very important, because by law storing things in hallways of multiple family dwellings is considered a fire hazard and we can all use more space for baby to run around.

The StrollAway fits most stroller models and won’t put you in the poor house at around $50, or you can WIN one here.

Great Resource for Infant/Child CPR in NYC

Years ago, before we were certified in CPR, I was watching  Runway Moms, a show about pregnant moms in NYC, and one of the moms on the show had a terrible experience, where her little girl fell off the family boat and into the water below. She was able to save her daughter’s life because she knew how to do CPR on the toddler.

Most of our clients have already taken an infant/child CPR class by the time they call us and if they haven’t, we highly recommend it.

One of the BEST places to learn infant/child CPR in NYC is Little Hearts CPR, run by Amy Gross. We took her class a few years back and she is one of the most knowledgeable safety professionals we have ever come across.

In her class, you will learn:

  • Infant and Child CPR
  • Relief of Foreign Body Airway Obstruction ( Choking )
  • NYC Taxicab and Car Seat Guidelines
  • Extensive Baby Safety Tips for use from Day 1 on

Classes are taught in Manhattan, several times a week, and once a month in Brooklyn. Amy, will also do private lessons, for a little bit more money.

Baby Bodyguards wants to stress again, how important it is to arm yourself and everyone who takes care of your child, with the lifesaving tools necessary in case of an emergency.
