It is amazing how quickly baby products can change through the years. From my first daughter (6 years ago), there have been so many new and innovative products that offer comfort and enhanced functionality for both baby and their parents. Here are a few of my favorites.
Bloom Nano Chair: With limited space in our city dwelling, we love chairs that are compact while still being comfortable for our babies. Take the Bloom Nano Chair with its incredibly sleek design that folds up for quick and easy storage. The chair also features an adjustable feeding tray (3-position) with deep lip to prevent spill and a leatherette seat upholstery that is really easy to clean while also offering stylish features that a modern mom craves.
Tommee Tippee: We are big fans of the tommee tippee bottles, and they recently launched a collection of beautiful Colour My World bottles from Closer to Nature. They come in pink, green, purple, and aqua for a fun ode to spring while still offering their signature bottle features such as being designed for smooth transition between breast and bottle.
Colgate Mattress Unveils Revolutionary Baby Mattress: Purchasing the right crib mattress is one of the most important things to buy for a new baby's health and development. One of our new favorites is Colgate Mattress, creator of a line of designer crib mattresses that look and feel great, as well as containing the most innovative, recyclable and technologically advanced components. This includes the new Nuzzle Snuze line, a new crib mattress line that does not contain foam, coir, coils or any of the traditional components. The Nuzzle Snuze Line comes in a variety of unique designs in muted, fashion-forward colors. They also introduced the revolutionary AirWeave, a spun matrix of totally recyclable, synthetic fibers that allows air to flow through their unique core to produce the most perfect microclimate for sleep and comfort. Highly successful in Europe, the new Nuzzle Snuze with AirWeave technology will be available in early 2014 and retails between $399 and $499.
Lavanila: Give your baby a healthy start this spring with Lavanila's collection of all-natural, skincare products. From their itty bitty nose to their teeny tiny toes, Lavanila’s clinically tested products gently nurture and protect. Some of our favorites are the Lavanila The The Healthy Baby Butter ($14): This 100% natural body butter contains 30 essential vitamins and minerals that support the health and development of delicate baby skin and the Lavanila The Healthy Baby Wash ($16): This tear-free, extra-gentle wash blends soothing Coconut & Vanilla Oil with nourishing Calendula & Noni Juice to cleanse and soften sensitive hair and body.
