I love shopping boutique baby finds. I love finding the best in the baby market. And I love supporting companies with a high-quality mission making safety and practicality a priority.
As we enter the new year, here are six new essentials that’ll have you- and baby- giving two thumbs up.
The NEW Eclipse Crib Mattress
The Eclipse Wellness mattress gives parents peace of mind; it’s a 100% breathable mattress made of 200 Center Zone coils, helping baby stay placed safely in the middle of the crib. It flaunts an innovative eucalyptus-based support system, a firm 2″ natural wool-based edge, and a certified organic wool layer. Consisting of zero toxic materials or foam, this Greenguard Gold certified mattress is two-sided, offering a Crib & Toddler side to accommodate growing toddlers. Now available at Buy Buy Baby.
If you want something more standard, the 6 Inch 2-Stage Classic Crib & Toddler Mattress from Bundle of Dreams has an award-winning design. The best part- it has an organic cotton, water repellent, removable & machine washable cover. With safety in mind, the 100% breathable mattress helps regulates baby’s temperature and has no VOC’s or toxic emissions. It’s designed for extra firm infant support, and a comfortable plush side for your growing toddler.
LongLegs from Kalencom Baby
Forget the cliché stuffy, Kalencom Baby has the most sought-after plush pal that your little ones will love. Available in a flamingo, sloth, llama and more, this cuddly friend provides plenty of comfort, and also looks fab as nursery décor. The safe, soft, long-limbed toy has special crinkle paper that makes a crackle sound, while the 100% polyester exterior is an A+ snuggle pal. Designed with babies in mind, the long narrow limbs are just the right size for small hands to hold.
Saro Baby’s Origami Duck Teether
If you’re looking for a top notch teether, Saro Baby’s Origami Duck is shaped to stimulating perfection and made of a soft, soothing texture. The Duck is a delight for delicate gums, made from non-porous material and lacking holes. (There is no way for water to collect and mold to form.) Easy to clean and easy to use, making teething a more “enjoyable” process.
The Potette 2-in-1 Value Pack
Is your toddler embarking on potty training? Stock up with the Potette 2-in-1 Value Pack, consisting of the Potette Potty, a collapsible liner and disposable liners. This is the ultimate potty-training tool featuring a raised splash guard to prevent spillage, easy grip handles for your toddler to grab, a contoured seat for your child’s comfort, and a sturdy well-balanced base. The Potette folds flat so it can fit in your purse or diaper bag, and it’s ideal for travel.
The Uptown Backpack
This is mom’s “it” item for diaper bags. The Uptown Backpack is better than a shoulder bag, equipped with insulated pockets, stroller straps, and more. It is made with a light and easily wipeable surface material and includes a large padded changing mat. With a sleek, convertible black design, this backpack will make mama look and feel like an on-the-go trendsetter.
