When it comes to parenting, everyone has an opinion.

And while our own moms and friends make some good points now and then, we’re always grateful for expert advice. So here at StrollerTraffic, we’ve teamed up with some of the sharpest minds in the industry to keep us informed on everything from nursery décor trends to vaccine controversies.

Party Pro

As a "Sweets Stylist," Amy Atlas could put Willy Wonka to shame. Her amazing creativity makes her one helluva designer, too. She keeps us in the loop on cool party trends—and makes us weep with her gorgeous sweets buffets. Follow her blog for a daily dose of entertaining fabulousness.

Hillary Baron

As the former in-house nutritionist for both Reebok/LA Sports Club and Exhale Mind Body Spa, Hillary Baron Irwin knows her fruit from her fructose. The fact that she’s also a new mom is the [sugar-free] frosting on our expert cake. www.simplybeautifulmom.com

Eco Expert

As the former CEO of Healthy Child, Healthy World and co-founder of The Honest Company, Christopher Gavigan knows a thing or two about healthy, sustainable living. We're honored to have him advising us on everything from hidden toxic dangers to Earth-loving alternatives. www.honest.com

Eli and Sheri
Toy Fanatics

Mom and pop duo Eli and Sheri Gurock are the talent behind Magic Beans, a supremely edited toy store with Boston roots. We look to them for advice on learning through play—and of course for rockin' gift ideas.

Sleep Savior

As the author of The Happiest Baby on the Block, Harvey Karp has helped to calm the fussiness and boost the sleep of just about every baby we've ever met. We're grateful that he's made himself available to help us (and you!) understand that most pressing question: For the love of God, why won't my baby sleep?

Design Mavens

No one knows their way around a good looking nursery quite like Melisa Fluhr and Pam Ginocchio. As co-founders of one of the industry's most popular design blogs, they are our go-to resource for mod finds and cool trends. www.projectnursery.com

Child Development Pros

It’s not just the Seedlings Group’s fancy psychology degrees that wowed us—it’s the warm, child-loving approach they take to helping parents cope with everything from sleepless nights and colic to biting and tantrums. Oh, and we thought their website looked really, really nice. www.seedlingsgroup.com


The sisters-and-mom trio behind SISSY + MARLEY (a super-chic concierge service for expecting moms in NYC) count among their assets a fashion career at Calvin Klein and DKNY, published designs in magazines like Better Homes & Gardens, perfectionism in their genes, and a passion for all things beautiful. So, yeah, we look to them for style advice every chance we get. www.sissyandmarley.com


Beyond creating what's arguably the safest skincare line for babies (Episencial),  Kim Walls carries a serious torch for organic and environmentally responsible living. She's also an incredibly smart nutritionist and self-proclaimed lab geek. We feel lucky to have her around to answer questions on everything from trans fats to toxins.
