MSR Mutha Hubba NX 3-Person Backpacking Tent Review - mamanonthetrail.com

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  We’ve been using the same old 2-person backpacking tent for year now, and it was Trail Dad’s before that. It was compact enough, big enough, good enough – when it was just the two of us. Kirby doesn’t take up a lot of space… Read more »

10 Tips for Adventuring with a Toddler - mamanonthetrail.com

“Attitude is the difference between an ordeal and an adventure.” ~ Bob Bitchin We love adventures! Big ones, small ones, close ones, far ones! And all of our adventures wouldn’t be nearly as fun if it weren’t for our toddler, Huckleberry the Trail Baby (yeah, I know, he’s not a baby anymore). And that quote above rings oh-so-true when adventuring… Read more »

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  I know this post has “back-to-school” in the title of it, but let’s pretend that isn’t happening, okay?

BOOB Design Fast Food Tankini Nursing Swimsuit Review - mamanonthetrail.com

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  Last summer I decided I could go the cheap/lazy route and just use my same old bikini as a nursing bikini. I mean, how hard is it to pull it up or down when Huckleberry needs to nurse? Well, it wasn’t difficult, but it… Read more »

Favourite Toys for Imaginative Play - mamanonthetrail.com

Huckleberry would be happy if all we ever let him play with were sticks and stones, but those are not great indoor toys. And although our social media feeds may not suggest it, we do spend time inside. So, what does Huckleberry play with when he’s not in the great outdoors? Not much, actually. We did a very good job… Read more »

Ellie Ears Positional Support Pillow for Hiking - mamanonthetrail.com

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  Huckleberry has always been incredibly talented at napping on the go.

Troubleshooting the Fit of a Nursing Bra - mamanonthetrail.com

Having an ill-fitting bra can be a nightmare! But how does a new mom know what size nursing bra to buy (especially when her breasts change size almost hourly!)? I’m currently on my 3rd size of nursing bra, now at almost 20 months postpartum, and I’m still not back to my pre-pregnancy bra size. It’s really incredible what your body can do to… Read more »

I received this item at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions remain my own.  Summer is in full swing around here! This means lots of extra time outside soaking up the sunshine!
