The First Years

If it's between the Compass s300 and the Combi I-Thru By

I am embarrassed of the snack tray which, after three months of scraping the ground when folding, looks like a second-hand-purchased stroller. It is hard to steer when baby faces me. I've read that the PegPerego Venezia has solved this problem with 4 swivel wheels but it, too, is quite heavy, not to mention $350. I wish I could pay a reasonable amount for a lightweight stroller that folds down relatively compact, with a snack tray, adjustable footrest, 5 pt harness, full recline, large canopy, reversible handle, and adequate storage. Is that too much to ask?!

I have a 21" door way into my kitchen, and none of the other gates can be used, they are all to big... I saw another gate like this but it was over $100... This is great, and can be used if I move or change roomes with out having to worry about measuring...
Nice gate, didn't last long..... By
January 1, 2004
We purchased this gate in December 2005. Our twin boys started crawling and we needed a gate for the top of the stairs. This gate worked great for about 5 months and then the knobs broke. Our friends have the same gate, and their knobs broke as well. There are many reviews on here stating that the knobs broke after one year, ours didn't even last 1/2 that long. We don't use it excessively, so I'm not sure why ours didn't hold up. I called The First Years company and they claim the gate has a 1 year warranty. She told me to mail in both knobs, my receipt (or legible copy showing date purchased) and they will send us replacement knobs. She also gave me a file # to reference. The lady stated about 10 times (very rudely!!) that we MUST have our receipt or they won't send us the new knobs. I told her over and over I have it right here in front of me, I guess she didn't believe me. So we're sending it in, we'll see if they really send us the replacements..... If anyone has their gate break within the 1 year warranty period, call 1-800-533-6708 (which is the number on the back of the gate instruction book) and they should cover it under the warranty. Just be sure to KEEP YOUR RECEIPT!!!

I have had this gate for about 2 years when the
lock froze up, this seems to be a very common problem with this gate, It was very easy to install and even though it may only last 2 more years we are going to replace the one that broke...

Best Baby Product!! By

We bought this for our 3rd child and wish it was available for our first. It soothed our baby, who did not like swings or bouncy seats. He was excited by the music and loved watching the mirrored attached mobile spin. A must buy for ANY baby! Much better than a portable swing.
Bring this monitor back By

The is the best monitor I've come across. Supposedly it's been discontinued & I can't find one to buy anywhere!
Just what she needed By
June 27, 2009
My daughter recently turned 3 years old. I was concerned because potty training was becoming difficult. She had a cute, pink stool and a ring to make the potty her size. What I finally realized was, this was not enough independence for my toddler. She is VERY petite for her age. It was a lot of work for her to get the stool and ring set up. It dawned on me that maybe a toddler potty would help. She LOVES Disney princesses and this safe, little potty gave her the independence she needed to tackle potty training!

I bought this seat because my daughter has used her legs A LOT since we brought her home. She was 6 weeks when we bought it and we noticed she was too short while buckled in even at the shortest setting. We have let her play in it without being buckled in while keeping a close eye on her and she goes NUTS she absolutely LOVES it. I am very satisfied with this product. It brings my daughter so much joy as well as her father and I. It's amazing to watch her have such a good time on it! The music and lights aren't extravagant but its good encouragement to get the baby going!
