    I have been a mom for 15 years. For a time I had three kids aged 3 and younger; then my fourth and youngest child was born when my oldest was still only 5 years old. Life was a slightly controlled, chaotic, busy, loud, and beautiful mess. I have great memories of that period of my life even though at the time I couldn't think much past getting through each day. Between the mishaps and mayhem of having two boys close in age (they're only 18 months apart) and with girls as oldest and youngest to boss them around and try and outdo them my life has never been richer or boring.

    While I may not have babies in my home at the moment, I have knowledge gained from the experience of having four children in a short time period. I know what gear you will use and what will sit on a shelf in the closet. I have children who are sensitive to fabrics, smells, and even at one point hated to step on grass. Also, my 2 year old niece has epilepsy so I am aware of the unique home life special needs kids have and can find you just the right options for your peace of mind. When I was expecting my first child, and completely lost on what to get, I called a friend to go shopping with me because she had the experience to tell me what I needed. I hope to be able to help you in the same way.

    I am a mom; it's my superpower. However, despite convincing my kids of this when they were younger, I can't actually see through walls or read your mind so I need your help. Be completely honest with me about what you are looking for. Details like your budget, how fast you need something, your skill level, etc. help me find the best gear for you. I'm always on the lookout for the best deal for my family and I will do the same for you on your timeline and budget.

    Kristina was awesome!
    Coincidently (?) Kristina was from my town. She was familiar not only with the products I was seeking but the terrain we’d be on with a toddler aboard in a carrier. She was responsive and when i had to pause 24hrs circled back to see if I needed more assist. I purchased two of her suggested carriers! im a happy g’ma! thank you kristina and curated!

    Kristina is Legit
    I'm busy business owner, and first time mom. I really dreaded the idea of shopping for strollers. I accidentally came across this site and I thought I was going to get just an email with a list, and I was annoyed at first that I was pushed to a person. I was frank with her, and she wasn't pushy, she was was helpful and straightforward. The advise on the types of products, her experience and her general demeanor were incredible. Worth it in spades. We ultimately went with a different stroller/carseat, but I wouldn't haven't even made it an inch without Kristina's help. I genuinely look forward to needing something else that she will be able to assist me with so she can get all of the credit.

    Life Saver!!
    When I ran across this website I didn’t actually think a real person would help me, but I desperately needed help finding a stroller for our first baby. I had several criteria that were most important to me, but I still needed the stroller to fit in our budget. I had researched for hours and felt stumped and overwhelmed. So, when a REAL PERSON actually reached out to me via text, I was surprised! I was nervous, and I thought that maybe by accepting Kristina’s help I might have to pay some large hidden fee. However, I had never given them my card information, and I desperately needed help after hours of research on my own, so I decided I would message Kristina back and see what she could do. For the stroller, I definitely wanted a bassinet that was approved for sleep, it also had to work as a stroller that we could use once our baby becomes a toddler. I wanted it to have the capability of carrying multiple children if possible, but that was a lot lower on my list of priorities. I shared all this with Kristina, and that I had been eyeing the UppaBaby Vista V2 but it was way out of our price range. I just really needed help finding other strollers that had a bassinet that was approved for sleep. Kristina helped me discover several strollers with bassinets approved for sleep, including Bumbleride. It was still somewhat out of our price range, but now armed with that knowledge from Kristina, I was able to find a BEAUTIFUL very lightly used Bumbleride Indie stroller on Facebook marketplace. Our first baby was born recently, and now the stroller makes me happy every time I go walking with it! It meets all the needs that I had such a hard time finding on my own. I look at the stroller and I think about how grateful I am for Kristina’s help. I felt bad that I wasn’t able to do something for her or this great website since I bought a used stroller in the end to make the stroller fit in our budget. However, I recently decided I would like a rain cover for the bassinet, and when I happened to see that it was available on Curated, I knew I wanted to buy it from you guys as a thank you. I feel so grateful and indebted for your help, and I hope that besides the rain cover that I can thank you all by helping others realize that this is an awesome resource, especially when creating a registry for a baby or a wedding and you need some help making a decision on some bigger ticket items. Thank you Kristina, and thank you Curated!!

    I wasn't sure what to expect with Curated, but Kristina was a great expert to work with. She was friendly, efficient, and provided some great car seat recommendations. It was nice to work with a real person, but on my timeline. Thanks, Kristina, for all your help!

    Kristina was so helpful and understanding
    I couldn’t find a color scheme I really loved, she searched high and low for us to find the perfect jumper play gym thingy. Thank you Kristina for your time!
