The NightLightMay 12 2014

The NightLight is a Wirecutter-esque site for baby gear: strollers, car seats, bottles, etc. headed by Gawker's Joel Johnson and his sister, Rachel Fracassa.

Brought to you by brother-and-sister team Joel Johnson-from Consumerist, Gizmodo, and The Sweethome-and Rachel Fracassa, mother of four and doula, with contributors from Parenting, Babytalk and more, The NightLight takes the hand-wringing out of buying baby gear, with in-depth reporting and research that determines the single best product that parents should buy.

As a parent of a young child, you're plenty busy already. The NightLight's team of writers and researchers will help you pick the best strollers, carriers, bottles, diapers, car seats, monitors, breast pumps, and-yup-nightlights. We spend between 20 and 40 hours researching and testing on average for each guide, and in ongoing review to make sure our recommendations are always correct.

My kids are thankfully past the baby stage, but this would have been an indispensable resource 3-4 years ago.

Make your home a SweethomeMay 28 2013

New site from The Awl, The Wirecutter, and Joel Johnson: The Sweethome.

It's a list of the best home gear, each item chosen mindfully and with many hours of research, interviews with the world's most knowledgable experts and testers, all in service of backing up our own testing and opinions. It's not a blog. We don't do news and we don't post multiple times a day-we just want to help you pick out great gear and get on with your life.

Whenever I need to purchase electronics, I always just go with what The Wirecutter recommends. Next time a household repair crops up, I hope I'll remember The Best Drill for Common Household Projects from The Sweethome.
