We were recently introduced to Gladly Family and let me tell you, their products are incredible! Brilliant, innovative ideas abound from them. Check out the Pod. It looks very nice, right? It is! But, it’s so much more than just a bag to stash everything you need to take with you when you have a baby. The Pod Diaper Bag Changing Station & Travel Cot is an all inclusive bag and expandable space to lie your baby down. Simply place the waterproof mat down and you now have a cushioned spot to easily change your baby’s diaper, or give them a place to nap while you are nearby. You would never know all of that was within the stylish diaper bag. Plus there are still lots of compartments for storage, including insulated bottle pockets. It’s all very light weight, too. This is something you are going to want to put on your list this year!
To help baby (and yourself) get the best sleep possible, I highly recommend tuning out all outside noises and distractions by using a sound machine from Yogasleep. Seriously, I couldn’t imagine not sleeping with one of these amazing machines. Available in multiple variations, Yoga Sleep has sound machines with fans, nightlights, travel sound machines, portable white noise machines for babies, and more! But for babies, especially, we can’t rave enough about Yogasleep’s Ohma All-in-One Baby Monitor. You can rest assured that you’ll be able to keep a close connection with baby, and grant secure access to family members or trusted caregivers with Wi-Fi-enabled streaming and a free phone app. Adapt your child’s sleep environment from newborn to early childhood, and adjust sounds, light, and volume from any distance. It makes a great gift!
When it comes to strollers, we are digging the Bēbee Lightweight Stroller from Bombi! This is the greatest travel stroller. I was shocked to see how lightweight and easily manageable it is. That is a must. The stroller is so well-designed. You can open with one hand, it glides so smoothly, looks fabulous (we love the bold Terracotta color, but there are several to choose from), it’s eco-friendly (made of recycled materials), folds up quickly, and is so compact. You will want to replace anything you used before, and if you are lucky enough to have not already made a purchase, do yourself a favor and buy this one. You won’t regret it!
We love the soft organic materials that KeaBabies uses in their products, such as the Soothe Sleep Bag. This keeps your baby safely toasty and warm while they are sleeping. This sleep bag is luxuriously soft and breathable, making it an excellent choice of fabric for your precious baby’s skin. It’s easy to use and well designed for middle of the night changes (thank you!) and comes in a variety of sizes. Be sure to check out their other amazing products like their Organic Bamboo Luxe Hooded Towel and Soother Baby Swaddle Wraps. They also have great gift ideas to celebrate and capture milestones like their Baby Inkless Clean Inkpads.
We love The Dearest Grey for their Mod Pacifiers. Grab a few and put them in your baby’s stocking this year. Available in several neutral and soothing color ways, this modern take on pacifiers is made of wonderful silky-soft silicone that adapts to your baby’s mouth, making the latch more natural. You (and baby) will love them!
For easier baby-changing, we love the baby body suits from Tabeeze. These organically sustainable clothes are unique in that they are the first bottoms-up baby body suits. You can put your baby’s feet first and then pull them up instead of having to place the bodysuit head first. It’s such a great idea. The material is soft and delicate across your baby’s skin. The snaps are nickel-free, too, which is wonderful for sensitive skin.
I love board books to begin reading to babies at an early age. It’s important to take time with them to read and engage. They can see the shapes, colors, and tone of your voice and it’s such a special bonding time. So books are always a big draw for me to get as gifts. Here are some ideas for your little one:
The Baby Loves Book Collection is loaded with lots of bright photography baby will also love. Fuzzy Furry Ouch By Amanda Jane Jones and Cree Lane Jones, explores different textures to touch and feel, as well as those you shouldn’t! Sandra Boynton board books are always a blast, we like this twist on the Barnyard Dance book with Barnyard Bath!, a wash cloth set and water book to take in the tub. After the bath is all done, it’s a great time to read Pajama Time! and Dinosnores, which is absolutely adorable.
Stuff those stockings for baby with great Baby Magic products. I am loving their Creamy Baby Oil, a blend of gentle lotion and coconut oil which is the greatest for soft skin for baby and for you. This is great for any time of day, so keep it in your diaper bag. For bedtime, though, I swear by Baby Magic Calming Baby Lotion to lather on after a relaxing bath. It smells of lavender and chamomile and is absolutely delicious for the senses, instantly relaxing you and baby.
