Hi everyone! 🙂
I’m Zooey Barnett and I’m a mother of three. My daughter Haley is 8 years old and my twin boys, Jesse and Mathew, are 5 years old now (wow, time flies!).
I come from a small town in North Carolina. I spent last few years with my family in NYC, but some time ago we moved to Boston.
I started this website mostly because I remember how difficult it was for me to find the best products for my babies and how huge research I had to do each time.
I remember how excited I was when I found out I’m pregnant with my daughter and how overwhelmed I felt when I started to look for baby gear. I saw all these different strollers, 4 wheels, 3 wheels, with pumped wheels, with forever-air tires, with carrycots, with infant car seats, for jogging, for walking, for travelling. Gosh, I felt dizzy!
And it was the same when I was looking for a crib and mattress, baby carrier, infant car seat and tons of other baby items… I visited literally hundreds of different websites, read thousands of reviews, watched dozens of videos, joined many forums and online groups for new moms and I heard tons of recommendations.
I tested dozens of strollers – at stores or at home, I also tried some strollers that my friend moms have been using. After all that research I just knew I had to share it with other parents. Parenthood is a joyful journey, but the beginnings are also quite stressful.
I wish all moms could just enjoy these nine magical months and not too spend countless hours searching for the right stroller! 🙂
So my plan was to create a place where parents can find all of the important information they need when they are looking for baby stroller and other baby stuff.
I decided to share my experience with other parents and show them the best baby gear – products that I use and that many other moms and dads recommend.
I know that parents have different lifestyles and therefore different needs, as well as different budgets. That’s why I post on my website reviews of all kinds of strollers, baby swings, baby carriers, stuff for baby’s nursery, as well as products for pregnant women and new moms, that come with a variety of features and in a wide price range.
Over the last few years, LittleBabyGear has grown so much and you can also find here lots of comparison of baby products, as well as articles based on scientific research on topics like pregnancy, childbirth, postpartum recovery and many more.
All of my articles with baby gear or pregnancy stuff reviews and rankings are always based on a thorough research and my own experience with a specific products. I always check other parents reviews and experts opinions. My two favorite sources of information are websites Babylist and BabyGearLab run by baby gear experts. These website allow me to always stay updated when it comes to new products for babies and moms.
When I’m looking for more medical information I use trust-worthy sources written by pediatrician and professional medical advisors like: American Academy of Pediatrician, International Hip Dysplasia Institute, American Pregnancy Association, National Library of Medicine, CDC, US Government Website for Women’s Health, FDA, WebMD. This way I’m sure that the information I’m sharing is research-based and reliable.
I hope you’ll enjoy reading my reviews and articles about baby gear and you’ll find products that suit your needs best 🙂 If you have any questions regarding strollers, baby swings or baby carriers, don’t hesitate to leave a comment in one of the articles or simply write to me!
