Review of the Summer Infant Fuze


The Summer Infant Fuze Stroller with Universal Adapter is one of the best strollers around. I would have given this stroller a 5/5 stars expect for a couple of minor things I would have preferred like a rounded handle for pushing, minor changes to the frame so that it can easily fit into a compact car (we currently have to put the stroller in the long way so that it can fit into our compact cars). Our son is 11 months and we use both the universal car seat adapter and the seat. It is very easy to go from the universal adapter to the seat. I love how lightweight and easy to manuever and stroll around in.
In summary, here is a quick rundown of the pros and cons of the Summer Infant Fuze Stroller with Universal Adapter.
– lightweight
– nice, comfy padding in chair
– great universal car seat adapter 
– easy to manuever 
– long seat to grow from baby to toddler 
– attachment for cup holder  
– good shade
– does not fit easily in a compact car specifically Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla – the stroller needs to be put in the long way which takes up more trunk space.
– seat: legs need to bend even when reclined for sleeping  
– when the seat is fully reclined it does not provide very much cover or shade
– prefer a rounded handle for pushing the stroller instead of the rectangular handle
Disclosure: I was given a free sample of this product to review. However, my opinions are my own.

Happy Family Review and Giveaway


Our family loves Happy Family!

We started baby on the Happy Bellies brown rice cereal at 5 months and now he’s 7 months and loving the Happy Bellies oatmeal, Happy Puffs, Happy Pouches. There are a lot of rice cereal choices out there but we decided to go with Happy Family Happy Bellies Brown Rice Cereal because it is gluten-free, whole grains packed with essential vitamins like iron, choline, DHA, as well as pre and probiotics . We recently started the simple combos and there hasn’t been a flavor he didn’t like but his favorite is still the kiwi and banana…AND just this week he started eating the Happy Puffs on his own (sorry, proud mama moment – I got a little teary eyed because my baby is growing up so fast!)


Why do we love Happy Family? First and foremost, it is owned and operated by moms. As a mom, I can truly appreciate products made by parents. Started on Mother’s Day in 2006, Happy Family’s products deliver superb nutrition with vitamins, minerals, probiotics and supergrains.  Sometimes buying organic can equate to more expensive but not Happy Family.  All of their products are very affordable and it is the only thing I trust for my baby’s growing body and mind.

But wait, Happy Family isn’t just for babys, toddlers and little kids…it’s for BIG kids too! My hubby and I chilled the Happy Squeeze treat caramel apple for a late night snack and loved it. It seriously tasted like a caramel apple with only 100 calories! We even take it with us on our outings to the zoo and my husband eats it as an afternoon snack to get him through the work day. It’s a yummy treat packed with lots of minerals, vitamins and ½ a cup of fruit!

Organic, enriched with lots of vitamins and minerals, no artificial ingredients, no artificial preservatives and a company that cares about the environment – that’s what makes this mama a very “happy mama” !

Another great benefit to Happy Family is every time you buy a Happy Family product, you also feed a starving child in Africa through Project Peanut Butter. You can find out more information about Project Peanut Butter on their website at
