When baby makes three (or four or five), Mom and Dad have a lot to manage. It’s okay to ask for help and support, and have a little fun every now and then. We found essential services to make life with a little one easier. Flip through our album to see which people and places every new parent in Chicago should know about (and bookmark … and have on speed dial!).

For Healthy Snack Delivery: Urthbox

Experts say, when the baby eats, you eat; when the baby sleeps, you sleep. Now that you have a dozen frozen lasagnas from neighbors and two baskets of pastries from your families, how about some healthy nutritious snacks by your nursing chair? Urthbox, a crowd-funded company since 2013, is all about ongoing delivery of healthy new products. And, the shipping is always free. To get started, go to urthbox.com.
