Toys That Rock

Literally!  

Finding quality, educational, functional and cute toys for our little one can be a challenge. There's just so much out there and the last thing new parents need is clutter.

This rocking owl stacker from Skip*Hop is AMAZING! It helps your baby practice motor skills and develop hand-eye coordination...it rocks (literally)...has textured rubber wings for teething (BPA-free, PVC-free & Phthalate-free)...it's a stacker and a musical shaker!






Skip*Hop
Rocking Owl Stacker
$16

Oh, and it's pretty stinkin' cute too!  Available here...HAPPY SHOPPING!

Shark Attack

Back in my PR days I gained a lot of knowledge on baby gear as the firm I was working for represented quite a few baby clients.  In best representing your clients you must know your competitors...and I'm glad I got to know  Skip*Hop.

As a Mom now, I LOVE them...I'm obsessed really.  And with all things I love, I need to share that love with anyone and everyone because these things make me happy...and I want everyone to feel that way when they spend their hard earned cash...HAPPY! 








My little one isn't even half way to his first Birthday...but my husband and I have already decided to have a shark theme party for him.  So you can see why these zoo on-the-go and zoo feeding items will make the perfect first Birthday gifts!  

Love what you see?  Skip*Hop has even more zoo friends for your little ones...check them out!

Happy Shopping!

Lil' Bandit

Fashion and function just got together and had a baby! 

I knew I had to have bandana bibs for my baby when I found out I was pregnant, but after getting the necessary items along with being all adult and saving for hospital bills they just weren't in the budget. 

Thankfully I have a rad sister in law that knows what's up...she gave this 4 pack to Dante for his first Christmas. 

Matimati Baby Bandana Drool Bibs
$24.75



So naturally I had to have more of these great bibs once I discovered my other bibs were so inferior.  You see the other bibs I had draped too low leaving Dante's clothes soaked with drool just under his chin, but worse...the ones with Velcro left his little cheeks with tiny scratches!!!  It's hard enough to cut those little razor blades he calls "nails" to keep him from scratching himself...I don't need the double whammy that Velcro provides! 

Matimati Baby Bandana Drool Bibs
$24.75




Not quite sold?  They feature a double snap to adjust for different size necks...or to grow along with your little one.  They dry SUPER fast.  And...well...they're super cute too!

Happy Shopping!

Breast Friend

As a rookie Mom I excitedly registered for the Boppy Pillow for my breastfeeding needs...ignoring all other pillows.  

Don't get me wrong, I do see the future use of my Boppy Pillow...but after a week and a half of breastfeeding with sore nipples and a back that felt like it was going to snap in half I knew there had to be something better...and thanks to Amazon.com I found the My Breast Friend Pillow!  This pillow is worth every penny...speaking of pennies...unless you have Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom you'll need to spend an additional penny for free shipping!

My Breast Friend Pillow in Sunburst
$34.99

Don't take my word for it...or do...but follow the link above and watch the video and I'm sure you'll be sold just like me.  For your sake though, I hope you get this before your little one arrives...your back will still hurt...like many of your other body parts...but trust me when I say it will be WAY better than without the My Breast Friend Pillow!

Happy Shopping!

Chew On This

A recent Baby Moon to Maui, HI had me shopping up a storm for our future little one.  

Like many other women out there, the journey to becoming a Mom has been a long one...funny how we spend our young adult lives avoiding pregnancy and then BAM...we're legs up in the air praying for that little blue plus sign to appear in a plastic viewing window weeks down the road!

But...back to shopping...I found this amazing necklace by Chewbeads at a great shop in Paia called Lilikoi.  They carry a well edited selection of Baby Clothes and Accessories, Home-candles, Linnens, Fragrances and more.  I love shopping small, so I was happy to pick this up...jewelry my kiddo can chew on and I can wear...so cute! 


Chewbeads Perry Teething Necklace
$36.50

If you find yourself in Maui you really have to shop and eat in Paia...and be sure to pop into Lilikoi...otherwise you can find Chewbeads online and in a ton of retailers nation wide!

Happy Shopping!
