With all this talk about Play, our newest Genius Series print, I’ve been thinking about my favorite baby toys. Oh, what fun! Kleynimals Stainless Steel Toy Keys. More than your average toy keys, these feel and sound like real keys without the sharp edges. In my opinion, an heirloom toy. I’ve even heard of people having them engraved! Tegu Magnetic Blocks. Truly innovative, Tegu Magnetic Blocks are packed with fun. I keep a set in my purse for entertaining my toddler in restaurants. They’re fun for mom and dad to play with, too. Spin Again. Another favorite in my house.
Some babies are pacifier hoarders. It doesn’t matter how many they have, it seems like it’s never nearby and they always need a new one. The cycle stops with WubbaNub Pacifier. Gone are the days of pulling the crib out from the wall and discovering approximately 27 lost binkies. The WubbaNub’s patented design helps keeping your baby’s pacifier from being lost, dropped, or misplaced. An adorable plush friend is attached to a Soothie medical grade pacifier. The plush animal is the perfect size and weight to stay in baby’s mouth. If it does fall out, it’s easy to see and

It provides full coverage when used as a nursing cover and allows mom to easily check in on
In honor of World Breastfeeding Week, I’d like to share some of my favorite products designed just for nursing mamas. Nipple Cream I am a big fan of Motherlove Nipple Cream, but I also love Earth Mama Angel Baby Natural Nipple Butter. Both soothe sore, cracked nipples and are safe for your nursling. These are definitely a must-have item, and I always bring one to the new moms in my life. Even the veteran moms I know get caught up preparing everything for the new baby but forget about themselves. Nursing Pillow A nursing pillow is a lifesaver. I used
Everyone wants to ask, “how’s the new baby sleeping? Is he sleeping through the night?” No, Carol. No, he is not. My kids don’t sleep. At this stage, I’m willing to try anything, including the Lamby Lambskin Cuddle Rug. My babies are not bad babies. They just want to be snuggled. Coincidentally, I love to snuggle them. It’s not a bad thing. Most of the time, this arrangement makes me pretty happy. We have our routine down. I go to bed early while my husband tends to our infant. Usually, he wears him in a Moby Wrap. After I get
Wet bags just got more awesome thanks to bumGenius! The bumGenius Weekender wet bag is a medium size wet bag that includes the same great features that our customers love on bumGenius Outing wet bag.

I’ve been using cloth diapers for nearly two years. In the beginning, I had mostly Flip, a few bumGenius 4.0’s, a couple Freetimes, and one Elemental. Over the years, I’ve collected a few more of each, and picked up some Econobum when they were on sale. Flips have become my go-to diapers, so it seemed like Econobum would be a pretty easy transition… And I was right! Econobum diapers are great. Why I love Econobum 1. Change absorbency. Econobum offers a great set of prefolds, but it’s easy to switch out inserts to get the perfect level of absorbency. That goes both ways
I love to try different types of diapers… I love changing it up a bit depending on if we’re at home, at another person’s home, running errands, etc. Sometimes I prefer bumGenius Freetimes, and sometimes I prefer the Flip Cover + Inserts! Flip is Cotton Babies’ hybrid diaper system. You can buy inserts for day time or night time, stay-dry or organic cotton, and newborn or one-size. The price point is perfect for anyone on a budget! Flips come in the variety of our favorite Cotton Babies colors and prints, so there’s plenty of options if you want to create that perfect rainbow.
Let’s all just get this out in the open: the hardest working people in your lives are moms. Breastfeeding moms in particular can get overwhelmed and touched out quickly. With that little bundle of joy by their side and non-stop pumping or nursing draining what energy they have to spare, they deserve a little something that’s just for them. You already know this, because you’re here looking for something to make their day extra special. 1. Stay-Dry Nursing Pads No breastfeeding mom ever has enough of these. Trust me. And these MilkDaze nursing pads are especially handy, with a unique shape
I’m going to make a little confession… When I first discovered bumGenius cloth diapers, I tried out every one of their diaper styles. This is how I fell in love with bumgenius Freetimes… However, I just could not find the love for the bumGenuis Elemental. At that point, the second version of the Elemental (with the exposed PUL) had launched and the original versions were a thing of the past. As much as I wanted to, I just could not get the hang of it, so I sold it to a friend and loaded my stash up with Freetimes and 4.0 pocket diapers. But then….
