Is it your little one’s first Thanksgiving? It is for ‘Mom’s‘ baby boy! Since he is not ready for turkey just yet, Happy Family has a wonderful array of Stage 3 Hearty Meals so he can enjoy the feast with us!


From traditional turkey to chicken and more, there’s something for all growing babies ages 7 months and up to eat! Since cinnamon is a favorite flavor of “Mom’s” little guy, the Hearty Meals Fruits, Oats & Quinoa with Cinnamon is what he gravitates towards, as well as the Clearly Crafted™ Apples, Pumpkin, & Carrots. A lover of root vegetables, like squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes, it seems like Thanksgiving and the upcoming holiday season are made for his taste buds!


With three children, the Happy Family brand is a go-to brand in “Mom’s” household…and has been for years! You can always find Superfood Puffs and Organic Yogis tucked in a diaper bag or backpack for snacks when out and about, or the Gentle Teething Wafers on hand when first teeth are coming in!

This Thanksgiving, whether you are headed to Grandma’s house or hosting the family at your home, your tiniest tot will love to be included at mealtime, too – thanks to Happy Family!

For moms with toddlers, packing a diaper bag is an entirely different experience! As your little ones grow up, their needs will change and what you can take along with you to play dates, outings to the park, or just everyday trips to the store is going to be much less than what you packed in their infancy. “Mom” has chosen her top finds for updating AND downsizing the diaper bag contents – including the diaper bag itself! So stow away that oversized piece of luggage you call a bag, tuck the burp cloths in a drawer, and place the breastfeeding cover on a shelf for the next baby. Let’s streamline!

First – the diaper bag! Check out the sleek, stylish Midi Coated Buckle Bag from Kalencom! Available in a large selection of patterns and bold color schemes to suit every palate, the fashionable Midi Coated Buckle Bag is shown here in O’Express. All Kalencom’s bags are AZO-free, and contain no Phthalates/DEHP, DBP, or BOP. The bags easily wipe clean, and can fit nicely on the back of a stroller or over the shoulder without bulk! Plus, each Buckle Bag features a large, padded fold-out changing pad and matching zippered pouch. The bag is roomy without being bulky, and the features 3 inside pockets and 2 outside pocket, to keep items organized. You can view the entire Kalencom collection at


Second – healthy snacks! Toddlers are active, and packing nutritious snacks to keep up with their demand is imperative! Pack apples, bananas, and other edibles that will not spoil, such as Sun-Maid Mini-Snacks or HAPPYFAMILY products, such as HAPPYBABY Pouches, HAPPYSQUEEZE, or HAPPYMUCHIES!

Third – eco-friendly wipes, wipes and more wipes! Great for cleaning hands, keeping tiny tushies clean, and for wiping running noses, wipes are still a must for the diaper bag. A new one to try – Dr. Sears Family Essentials All-Purpose Baby Wipes! Made with 100% biodegradable, ultra-soft bamboo fabric, the All-Purpose Baby Wipes are pediatrician-formulated to gently cleanse, comfort and protect. One package contains 72 wipes.

Fourth – keep em’ hydrated without spills! Little hands need an easy cup to hold while on-the-move! The new lollacup to the rescue! With a flexible straw and extra-large handles for gripping, the adorable and extremely functional lollacup will be your toddler’s favorite! Available in five bright colors, the valve-free, weighted straw allows even infants as young as 9 months old to effectively drink from a straw. Plus, the lollacup is BPA-free, and contains no phthalates, lead, pvc, nitrosamines, melamine, and biologically toxic chemicals! Not to mention it is too, too cute!
