I See Me

Meaningful gifts are a great way to show a mom-to-be (and their baby) how much you care. One of our favorites is the collection of beautifully written and illustrated books from I See Me. As a personalized children's book publisher, you can discover storybooks and board books, growth charts and puzzles where you baby literally becomes a part of the story. This includes favorites such as My Very Own NameHello World, and Goodnight Little Me - all of which can be personalized to include the baby's name, birthdate and a message from the gift giver. This also makes for an incredible gift for your older child as they will soon become an older brother or sister with favorites like The Super Incredible Big Sister and The Super Incredible Big Brother that is sure to make them feel special during this incredible time in everyone's life.

BABY BOUNCER: Bouncer Balance Soft from BABYBJÖRN

Bouncer Balance Soft from Baby Bjorn

There are so many bouncers and seats on the market for a baby. A tried and true favorite that I have been using since my first daughter was born is the Bouncer Balance Soft from BABYBJÖRN. Developed in collaboration with pediatricians, this ergonomic bouncer features an incredibly soft and snug design as it offers your baby proper head and back support. An innovative design, this bouncer also focuses on your baby's movements as their movements bounce the chair - making it incredible for development of their motor skills and balance. Designed for baby's 0-2 years old, we also love how this bouncer uses NO batteries and how it features three different positions for your baby where they can play, relax and even sleep. It is also incredible for travel where you can fold it in one motion that will effortlessly fits into your car. Buy:babybjorn.com/

TRAVEL CRIB: Travel Crib Light from Baby Bjorn

Travel Crib Light from Baby Bjorn

Life with baby doesn't mean that you have to stop traveling. In fact, we love exploring with our kids, but we do need help along the way to make the experience a little easier. For a baby, we love the Travel Crib Light from Baby Bjorn. This incredibly lightweight travel crib (it weights in at only 11 pounds!) is super easy to carry and fold up that comes in an easy-to-use portable case. We are also impressed with its firm mattress that makes it super comfortable for baby to snug in. Designed for newborns through age three, the Travel Crib Light also features see-through mesh panels so you can watch your sleeping baby and no frustrations for parents as you can put it together in minutes thanks to its frame that easily unfolds.

BABY CARRIER: Baby Carrier We from BABYBJÖRN

Baby Carrier We from BABYBJÖRN

One of our favorite ways to get around with our babies is via a carrier. During a recent event we loved checking out a demonstration of the new Baby Carrier We from BABYBJÖRN. Designed for babies and toddlers from 0 to 3 years old (up to 33 pounds), the new Baby Carrier We features three front and back carrying positions for inward-facing positions (newborns) as well as back carrying for toddlers. This also includes a pressure-relieving waist belt and comfortable padded shoulder straps that evenly distribute your baby's weight as it provides support to their head, back and hips. The most impressive feature is how you can wear your toddler on your back without needing another person to help you put on the carrier - making it easier for both you and your baby to get around as they grow. Buy:babybjorn.com/
