Introducing the New Site!

Hey there folks –

This is Meg Collins, your flight attendant speaking. Hoh-my-gad — I cannot believe Lucie’s List is about to turn TEN years old (gulp)!

With this milestone birthday, we wanted a fresh look and a new “home.” After all, we have so much more to offer now than just baby gear and snarky humor.

Our Evolution

We’ve come a long way from the days of working out of my little apartment in San Francisco; I now have a staff of seven amazing moms (and two incredible dads — Rich and Anand — on the tech side) who do everything from social media to technical research to editing and everything in between.

While following our guiding principles (making life easier for parents, keeping it honest and real, and not selling out to the man), we’ve been able to expand our content and audience. 

Here’s what’s new:

I’m not sure which of these I’m most excited about. All of it!!

We’ve stayed alive, despite tremendous competition from offshore mass-publishing sites and other competitors with deep pockets, by word of mouth from readers like you. If you’re able, please refer a friend to Lucie’s List.

Thank you, dear parents, for your emails, social posts/comments, and support you’ve given us over the years. We all consider ourselves extremely lucky to serve you.

What do you want us to write about? Please leave a comment below!

Sincerely,

Comments

    I love your site. I am a grandparent of 9 month old twins (boy/girl) and we have the awesome pleasure of babysitting them during the week (best job we have ever had). I enjoyed your article on baby proofing but I would like to have some suggestions on designing a playroom. Thank you.

    How exciting! I’d love for ideas of what to do with toddler art – my 2 yr old is in daycare and comes home with the cutest handprint art, etc., but how do I compile it all?!

    Happy Birthday!! I love your site and all that you do. So thankful for your ten years of providing much needed snarky parenting humor and vital 411! Congrats on a decade of awesome content. <3

    Love the new site!! Thanks for being my #1 go-to resource for baby stuff. My first baby is now almost four, and this site was indispensible when we were floundering new parents 😂

    Hello Meg and team! I’m a birth and postpartum doula, and I recommend your site to all my clients – I love what you do and the no-nonsense vibe. I found you 7 years ago when I was pregnant with my first, and I’m so pleased and proud to see you expand. Congratulations!

    Your site saved me as a new, and then repeat, mom. It’s the only place I send anyone looking for product or registry guidance. I love what you’re doing and appreciate the new content for my, now, preschoolers. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    So happy for you (and the team)! When my oldest was born in 2017 and I started receiving the weekly age-appropriate emails, I swore you lived in my brain because they were ON POINT each week. I think week 7 was all about getting some mom friends—yes, girl! Now I’m working as a postpartum doula and referring everyone to Lucie’s List!

    I discovered Lucie’s List during my NINTH pregnancy (yup not a typo). I am VERY grateful for how she helped me to quickly navigate choices and make informed purchases for replacing worn-out items and identifying new how-did-I-manage-without-this-the-last-eight-times items. I love referring younger first-time and even repeat moms to Lucie’s List. THANKS VERY MUCH, God Bless and keep up the good (and entertaining) work.

    Congratulations, and the new site looks great! I ALWAYS consult your lists before I buy basically anything for my kids now (ages 4 and almost 2)! Thank you for the amazing advice! I don’t know what I would have done when each was born without your incredibly useful and thorough newborn list especially.
