Lexypexy handmade baby teethers are not only adorable but are all natural. Made from sustainable maple wood, they are non-splintering and antibacterial! HOW, you ask? Well, wood is naturally anti-bacterial. Bacteria generally doe not sustain life for long on wood and does not duplicate on wood like it can on plastic. So “go green, Baby!”

SoYoung Lunch Boxes

SOYOUNG

Lunch Boxes used to seem unimportant to me. I’d pick one up at Target at the beginning of each school year. Throughout the year it would get spills & stains, the velcro would wear down everytime I threw it in the washing machine, & I would do what I always do… just buy a new one.

This year I received 2 SoYoung Lunch Boxes, 1 for Rexy & 1 for Harper. I was lucky enough to meet the lovely founder of the company at a children’s trade show. My world of packing lunches completely changed. SoYoung Lunch Boxes are so so pretty- and they will stay pretty! They are made of coated linen which never stains. (trust me, we’ve been using our’s almost every day for 4 months now!) If your lunch box does get sticky from juice spills you can simply wipe clean with wet wipes. When you unzip the lunch box you will find a leak proof insulated insert for easy cleaning. This makes life soooo much easier for us lunch packing mamas. Again, NO stains from spills + food stays COLD!

On the weekends I love using their lunch boxes as snack containers when we go to the park, zoo, or even on road trips. They look super cute carried as backpacks or cross body which keeps your children hands free (convenient, since my kids never want to carry things!)

Find the entire SoYoung collection HERE, including their beautiful backpacks, cooler bags, diaper bags, & accessories.

Boken Every Day Bag

boken

Searching for a cool Diaper Bag that works for both you AND hubby? Check out the Boken Every Day Bag….

“As a first-time mother and a busy fashion consultant, co-founder Sawako Yamauchi faced a dilemma: Finding a diaper bag that fit her needs, fit her style, and kept up with her active, hectic schedule. After months of searching, she found the answer, but it wasn’t a diaper bag – it was a travel backpack.

Boken has created the most lightweight diaper bag on the market, made from water resistant material that easily wipes clean, to handle whatever messes the world – or your baby – throws at you.

It’s the perfect bag designed to make your life easier, whether today’s adventure is a list full of errands or a day trip to the beach. Our bags allow you to be hands-free, because you’ve got more important things to hold! And above all, it’s a bag that looks great in any setting – out to lunch in the city, to a party on the beach! ”

And best of all, with Boken, there’s finally a diaper bag Dad won’t be embarrassed to wear…or maybe own for himself.

Puj Filla

PujFilla

How many times a day do your kids ask for a drink? My 4 year old is ALWAYS thirsty! & I am ALWAYS circling back to the kitchen!

I LOVE this solution by Puj!…

Introducing Filla, the first ever hangable kid cup!

Each cup is made with a friendly loop that hangs from a corresponding Nub. And since the Nubs adhere to any smooth surface using 3M adhesive and leave no permanent damage you can hang these right from your fridge, allowing your child to get a drink without the help of a parent.

The cup is made from silicone and food-safe non-leaching polypropylene and is dishwasher safe.

These are arriving in kitchens everywhere early 2015.

YAY!

With a sturdy zip-lock style seal located on the bottom of the pouch and a choke-proof cap, Squooshi reusable food pouches can be filled with whatever squishy wholesome goodness you and your little ones desire for a healthy, on-the go snack or meal…(applesauce, smoothies, fruit, grain and veggie purees, homemade baby food, yogurts, oatmeal – pretty much ANYTHING of a squishy consistency.)

Sleepsacks

I’ve had these two sleepsacks hanging in my son’s closet since before he was born and never really bothered using them until about two weeks ago. Now I’m totally hooked and am sort of kicking myself for not getting to them sooner since he’s shown signs of preferring to be arms free. I’m pretty much the worst swaddler and these sleepsacks (also known as wearable blankets) keep baby warm and ensure your baby won’t break out. Most babies are ready to transition into sleepsacks as early as 3 months. For boys, they look a bit like dresses, which also kind of cracks me up, but not to fret, they come in an array of designs and colors. Check out my favorites below.

sleepsacks

How cool is the star one?

Lily Jade Diaper Bags

thecarolinebag

Do you carry a diaper bag? If so, do you like it? Does it double as a purse?

When I had babies I used to carry a diaper bag AND a purse! Not sure why, but I think it had something to do with the fact that my diaper bag had a loud/ugly print and really looked like a diaper bag.

This month I had the chance to check out Lily Jade Diaper Bags. Lily Jade makes designer diaper bags that you can use during the baby years & beyond. Their bags are made from leather and lined with durable cotton canvas. Each bag has a removable and washable canvas diaper bag organizer and a washable changing pad. The diaper bag organizer has 16 usable pockets for all of those itty bitty baby items. You can also use the diaper bag organizer in larger tote bags- they are great for travel and the beach.

When you no longer need the diaper bag organizer, simply remove it & you can use your Lily Jade bag as a purse!

P.S. Lily Jade is currently having a sale on ALL of their diaper bags!

Nuna SENA

NunaSena

This month I had the opportunity to check out the Nuna SENA. It is Nuna’s foldable cot, or as we call it the pack-n-play! At first glance it is definitely easy on the eyes– has a beautiful modern design and I am LOVING this beautiful scarlet color. It also comes in navy and safari (a beige color).

The SENA only takes a few minutes to set up and then folds back up in a snap. Seriously, you can fold it back up one handed! One of the best features of the SENA is that it has an upper cot that folds with the frame. If fact, it is the ONLY cot with an upper cot that folds with the frame! This is soooo convenient especially while your baby is still in the newborn – 1 yr. stage. A few other features worth mentioning include the padded edges (that prevent finger pinches) and the quilted mattress pad which makes for a comfy sleeping!

I’d definitely recommend this for both travel, play, and nap time! If you plan on keeping your newborn close during the night the first few months this would also be a fabulous bassinet option.

For more check out the video below:

Gro Anywhere Blind

groanywhereblind

Happy Monday Morning! How was your weekend? I spent the entire weekend tearing out carpet (see some pics on Instagram: spearmintbaby!)

I also got a chance to try out my new Gro Anywhere Blind. I have to say that I get to try out a LOT of cool products for babies/mamas and this is one of my new FAVORITES! If you are pregnant add this product to your registry NOW!

I think most moms feel like a dark nursery means baby will nap better/longer. I never had blackout shades in my nurseries so when Harper was about 6 months old I decided to hang thick fleece blankets from her windows. I was desperate because the curtains still let in waaayy too much light and she had a hard time settling down for naps. The room looked ridiculous but I wasn’t going to take down the fleece blankets since I’d worked so hard getting them to stay up!

Anyway, if only the Gro Anywhere Blind had existed back then.

What is it? How does it work?
The Gro Anywhere Blind is a completely portable blackout blind that creates a dark sleep environment wherever you go. You can take this shade to Grandma’s house or on vacation because it is so lightweight and easy to transport. The Gro Anywhere Blind is completely adjustable and you just stick it to your window with the suction cups. The blind has VELCRO® brand closure tabs which allow you to adjust it to your window size. & BTW, it is super cute with a black stars and moon print!

Not convinced yet? Well check out Harper & Rex’s room below. I put the shade up during peak afternoon sun/light (took about 2 minutes). If I were to cover the other door with another shade the room would be completely dark! Now that spring is here I can keep their 7:00 bedtime and still make the bedroom dark. I am seriously amazed at how fab this is!

rockaRoo™ by 4 Moms

4momsrockaroo1

This past October I had the opportunity to attend the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas, NV. If you follow me on Instagram: @spearmintbaby you were flooded with a LOT of my favorite things from the show. Some of my other favorites were top secret …brand new products that are just now being released into stores.

The 4 moms rockaRoo™ is now available and it is AMAZING! A definite must have for all of you who are creating your registries. Add it NOW!

Why do you need the rockaRoo™? Why is it unique?

Well, 4 moms took a traditional swinging motion and turned it upside down. The rockaRoo™ literally rocks like a rocking horse! This motion maximizes the sensation of motion for your baby. Your fussy baby will be in rocking heaven! There is no other product like this on the market.

In addition, the rockaRoo™ is lightweight, easy to move around, & doesn’t take up as much room as a traditional swing. It is also way more beautiful than the traditional swing. I love it’s modern look, don’t you?

The rockaRoo™ has five different speeds and an MP3 hookup so you can play your own music. Download your favorites by Mozart & Bach and play them right through your rockaRoo™.

Baby Love

Irene here from designstiles. In celebration of the upcoming Valentine’s Day, today I thought I’d share a round-up of the top baby items I absolutely love.

babylove1. This Fisher Price Cradle ‘N Swing is the best. I can put baby in it while I pump and do work. And it allows me to sneak off and shower while he takes a quick morning nap. He just starting noticing himself in the mirror and loves gazing at the mobile. Totally keeps him entertained and looks completely comfortable. I’m actually jealous I don’t fit it in. Get one. My sister gave me hers and it’s seriously the best item we’ve received.

2. Bandana bibs – my friend made me a couple of these and I just think they’re the coolest. I didn’t realize just how much babies drool so these quickly became part of my baby’s ensemble. I’m not really into the bibs with all kinds of sayings on them so was super happy to see an alternative. The ones I have are not yet on my friend’s Etsy store but maybe this post will persuade her to update. Ha!

3. Peanut changing pad – This was the one item I wanted most off my registry. I don’t need to worry about washing changing pad covers and any accidents can be easily wiped. The no-fuss changing pad. It’s great and really dig the funky shape.

4. Ergobaby Carrier – another item handed down to us by my sister. This thing gives your arms a break. You can’t always carry your baby and we’ve got things to do so put them in this and feel the bond. You’ll need to use the insert for the first few months. We still do.

5. Gap cuffed pants – I first bought a pair of these on sale and soon went back for seconds. Then thirds and fourths. I like the variety of colors and simple patterns. They look really comfortable and there’s something about the cuffed leg I’m just really into. There’s a cute selection for girls too. Some are even gender neutral.

That’s it. The things I’m totally loving currently. I should do another round-up once my baby gets a little older and we both discover new items.

Happy Wednesday!

Jack N’ Jill Toothpaste

JackNJill1

I discovered Jack N’ Jill at the ABC Kids Expo this past October. I had never really thought about toothpaste choices before since we are pretty much limited to what is on the drug store shelf.

After a brief education, I learned that Jack N’ Jill is an all natural toothpaste & safe for babies, toddlers & children to swallow. This is GOOD because my kids ALWAYS swallow their toothpaste! Jack N’ Jill is also hypoallergenic with organic ingredients, and designed with recyclable and BPA Free packaging.

Harper LOVES the Blackcurrant flavor while Rexy prefers Blueberry… they have a flavor that is sure to suit your little one’s taste. & I really love that CUTE bunny rinse & storage cup!

Looking for fun storage? I was on the hunt last month for something cute that I could slide under their new bunkbed. Since it would show, I wanted it to be cute! Enter Room Copenhagen. They make the cutest storage containers that look like legos. They can stack just like the real thing!

Anyway, they are 50% off on Fab.com. I purchased 2 large ones (1 black & 1 white) for only $36 with free shipping! Go check out the 1 day sale.

Babyhome

babyhomepicks

I’m sharing more from the ABC Kids Expo today. Familiar with Babyhome? They design modern & very functional baby products/gear. At the ABC Kids show they were premiering some beautiful new colors: coral & a soft minty green which I LOVED!

My favorite product by Babyhome is DREAM: a portable bassinet, perfect for travel over the holidays or even to keep newborn beside your bed while you are breastfeeding throughout the night!

“DREAM is a highly designed travel cot featuring a unique adjustable leg system that provides three different uses for the same product. Its aluminium structure gives it a modern, sophisticated look complemented by removable and washable fabric in a variety of colors. A foam mattress, a honeycomb breathable pad and a fitted sheet are included.”

My other favorite by Babyhome is so-ro. It is an absolutely stunning piece of furniture and comes as either a single or a double rocker for those of you that have twins. In addition to it being beautiful, so-ro was designed by an occupational therapist and offers a rhythmic, front-to-back rocking movement that soothes and comforts your baby. For those of you that love white…the so-ro does indeed come in white as well!

Making it’s debut in the upcoming year is the Wave Lounge Chair. (lower left) It has nice clean lines and will come in several cushion color options on brown or white laminated wood. It looks like the next “must have” lounger! I believe it will retail for just under $200.

I had the pleasure of meeting the founder, Kevin Brodwick, of thinkbaby last month at the ABC Kids EXPO. Not familiar with thinkbaby? You will be soon…

Kevin had this fabulous idea to deliver safe, functional, and sustainable products for little ones that are free of biologically harmful chemicals. Founded in 2006, thinkbaby products address the growing concern of toxic chemicals leaching from consumer products.

From baby bottles & sippy cups to sunscreen & shampoo their products are free of BPAs, phthalates, nitrosamines, lead, PVC, PET, Melamine, and biologically harmful chemicals. thinkbaby does not conduct animal testing and products are packaged without the use of clear plastic windows, which are made of PVC & PET.

My FAVORITES are the adorable feeding sets. They come in 5 colors and come with the “think” logo. So cute!

Angelcare® Digital Video, Movement and Sound Monitor

angelcare
Being a new parent means constantly worrying about the safety and security of your baby, especially when you aren’t right there hovering above them. Avoiding the temptation to run into your sleeping baby’s room to check on them every 5 minutes can be a hard, right? I remember when Harper was a newborn I would have to stop myself from running down the hall to check on her. I was paranoid, what new mom isn’t? We had a really simple baby monitor that mostly just played loud static noise when it was turned on. It was pretty useless and about a month after Harper was born I pretty much gave up trying!

Last month the folks from Angelcare® sent over the new Digital Video, Movement and Sound Monitor for me to try out. GOSH, I wish I had this monitor when Harper was a newborn. I think I would have had complete peace of mind!

The monitor features a digital color video LCD screen, an infrared camera for dark conditions, a sound monitor with two-way communication capability, and a motion sensor pad. It uses 2.4 GHz digital transmission to reduce interference and provide maximum privacy. It also offers convenient features such as battery backup during power failure, temperature display, and a night-light. For babies under 24 months, whether awake or asleep, Angelcare’s world-renowned under-the-mattress sensor pad alerts parents at 20 seconds if no movement is detected. That feature would have made me so much more comfortable!

Each Digital Video, Movement and Sound Monitor is also equipped with an optional ‘tic’ feature that clicks to let parents know the sensor is working even when baby is sound asleep. From infant to toddler, Angelcare monitors can grow with your family by simply disconnecting the sensor pad feature.

Hopefully this info is helpful to all of you that are going through the exhausting planning process. I think for a brand new mom, this is definitely a good investment. Getting your rest is so important when you have a new baby and having this monitor by your side will help you do so!

P.S. the Angelcare Video, Movement and Sound Baby Monitor System is currently on special at Babies R Us for $259.99.

Stylish Cribs

Hi again, Irene from designstiles sharing stylish cribs today.

The crib is such a focal point in the baby’s room, I’m sure all moms-to-be want something cute yet functional enough to last through a possible second or more babies. I tend to gravitate towards simple, clean lines. And recently, the gray options are a perfect way to add a bit of color suitable for boys and girls.

Below are a few of my recent favorite cribs, ranging in styles and price points.

Happy Wednesday!

Inertia Car Seat

car_seat_inertia

Shopping for infant car seats? It feels like yesterday that I was pregnant with Harper and the choices seemed endless. I had no idea where to begin!

Today I wanted to share some news about a new carseat available. It is made by Baby Trend and called the Inertia Infant Car Seat. Not only does the Inertia Car Seat install in the blink-of-an-eye, but it features a controlled motion base that responds to crash forces with a reclining mechanism for low-impact force distribution. Baby Trend is leading the car seat revolution with it’s Inertia Infant Car Seat by redefining safety and using their patented technology for easy installation.

Though I have not tried the new Car Seat by Baby Trend (my babies aren’t babies anymore!), Baby Trend was kind enough to send me a TrendZ FastBack 3-in-1 Car Seat for Rex. (it is pretty fab if your baby has outgrown their infant seat!

A bit more about the Inertia Infant Car Seat
“Features such as their standard five-point safety harness and EPS energy-absorbing foam work together with Baby Trend’s all new technology. The controlled motion base is engineered with a deceleration mechanism. This allows a child to ride comfortably, in a more reclined position. In the unlikely event of a car accident, it responds instantly to crash forces by rotating more upright to better distribute impact. For the easiest and fastest installation with maximum safety, the Inertia Infant Car Seat also features push-button RIGID LATCH connectors making installation virtually error-free.

The Inertia Infant Car Seat was also created with the parent in mind. By improving their Delta multi-grip carrying handle, Baby Trend makes ergonomic transport a priority so parents can comfortably carry their child from the car to the park and back. In addition, the Inertia Infant Car Seat’s ergonomic features include the stylist yet functional smooth-curved sides, designed to not bump into legs when the car seat is being carried.”

As of March, you can now find the Inertia Infant Car seat sold at Babies R Us. So go check it out for yourself!

Baby J Play Mats

Baby Play Mats…

Do you have one? When Harper was little, I had a really flimsy play mat. You know, the kind with toys hanging from it. I would sit it on top of a thick comforter on our hard would floors so she would have a cushy place to lay/play. I had never even thought of looking for a pretty, COLORFUL, & plush play mat for my little girl to do her tummy time!

Jennifer, founder of Babyjco.com, contacted me a few weeks ago to share a play mat she has created after seeing a need for this product. After going to many support groups with her newborn, she noticed that most moms had flimsy blankets to lay their babies down on. Her idea was to create a designer fabric, plush minky, foldable, padded baby play mat with a velcro closure. One side is always on the floor, and the other side never touches the floor. This way, baby will always have a clean surface for tummy time and mommy doesn’t have to continually wash baby’s blanket.

Jennifer let me choose my favorite play mat to check out her product. I chose the yellow chevron pattern. Isn’t it beautiful? It measures 29”x35” – the perfect size for a newborn to nap in the park and eventually practice tummy time! Plus, I love the velcro closure that ensures one side stays clean and sanitary… how convenient to throw in your stroller!

P.S. I also love the idea of having a beautiful patterned play mat for photography purposes! Wouldn’t it be fun to photograph/instagram your newborn on this cute patterned blanket? Which pattern is your favorite?

BabyList Registry

PINKBABYLIST
Have you heard about BabyList?…

Creator, Natalie Gordon, was pregnant with her son and couldn’t find a baby registry that suited her needs. She wanted a place where she could register for frozen meals, pet sitting for her German Shepherd, & an eco-friendly diaper service… along with all other things baby.

So, she took things into her own hands and created a better online baby registry. I LOVE the idea of being able register for everything from a carseat, to your favorite Etsy accessories, to a day at the spa!

How does it work? It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3!

1) Go to BabyList and create a user profile.
2) Add a BabyList button to your Bookmark bar (This is just like the Pinterest ‘Pin it’ button).
3) Start adding items to your list from anywhere online.

Want some BabyList inspiration? Check out some sample registries created by your favorite companies & bloggers.  You can find my “think pink” registry items HERE.

Stylish Diaper Bags

Hi there, Irene here from designstiles. On Monday I revealed on my blog that I’m pregnant.  And actually I have been since I started guest posting here on Spearmint Baby, but now that it’s out in the open, I feel even more like I’m relatable to you ladies.

On my mind yesterday were diaper bags. I love purses so I’m seeing the diaper bag as a treat and want to get something practical and stylish. I asked the moms in my circle for their recquirements and these seem to meet the standards. If this bag will be at your hip for months to come, and again if you have a second or third baby, I say make the splurge and buy something you love.

My personal favorite is no.6 –  appropriately named knocked up. Clever.

BAGGU Weekend Bag

baggubag1
Do you have a favorite summertime activity? Summers in the southwest are HOT! You learn quickly that being outdoors with the kids for more than 30 minutes requires a swimming pool. Our rental house does not have a pool, so we’ve joined a few swim clubs for the summer.

A few weeks ago after lugging towels, pool toys, suits/goggles, & sunblock back and forth to the pool I realized I needed a better solution than 3 separate pool bags. So I started googling… I wanted a bag that was REALLY large, had a sturdy zipper, a simple/clean look, and was preferably canvas/cotton. During an afternoon of online shopping I discovered BAGGU. The Baggu Weekend Bag looked perfect!

As a blogger I am always trying to network with cool companies, so I decided to write to BAGGU about my search for the perfect/kid friendly pool bag. They were soooo nice and sent over this beautiful Weekend Bag in sea for me to try out. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the simplicity of the bag + the fact that I can finally fit all of my stuff in my bag! Added Bonus: it also matches my towel perfectly.

Do you own any BAGGU products? I am so in love with their stuff and I think my next purchase is going to be the DUCK BAG in Sailor Stripe. Isn’t it cute? & $26 = such a bargain!
