Sseko’s Founder (and Mom of almost two!) Dishes Her Fave Baby Products!

Although I’ve always loved a good life hack, being a mama of a BUSY toddler (and his soon to be little brother!) has made me a FOOL for anything that can save a little time, energy or sanity.

To be honest, I’ve never had a strong loyalty to a specific line of baby products.
