Mom & KidsTop Baby Obsessions

Belly-Blanket-ChicEver since we found out that we have sweet potato number 2 on the way, I’ve been re-infected with a case of baby fever. This time around, I like to think I’m a bit wiser and choosy in terms of not buying everything that catches my whim. Combining research and personal experience, I’ve put together my must-have list in prep for the new munchkin!

Mom & KidsStokke Trailz

MAIN-PRODUCT_StokkeTrailz_04Although I’m a city girl at heart and would likely excuse myself from taking the kids camping (but wouldn’t miss Madeline for the world), I can totally appreciate all-terrain gear! The innovative Trailz Stroller from my beloved Stokke brand is at the top of my obsession list. The philosophy behind Stokke strollers is that the seat position is elevated to encourage eye contact and connection between parent and child (such a lovely concept to carry through childhood!). If I’ve learned a thing or two about strollers since they’ve become an extra appendage for me, is that suspension and taking tight corners are indispensable without sacrificing the comfort and safety of my little passenger. At the top of the list for the new Stokke Trailz is superior maneuverability for easy steering, and advanced tire suspension for a smooth ride (and comfy for mom’s hands and arms!), no matter if on rocky land or broken pavement.

Mom & KidsNununu – Live on the Edge

starStreet smart. Avant-garde. Bold. These aren’t usually words I’d use to describe a line for the younger set, but Nununu‘s innovative designs can take on a stroll through the East Village and still stand out as cool. I myself am partial to jumpers in all seasons and day-to-night, and this Long Star Romper is boldly stamped with oversized stars to make a statement. The black print on white is a eye-catching sharp contrast, while the soft 100% cotton and elastic waistband and hem keep it comfortable. Kids are always on the move, and the stars morph into shooting stars as they whiz past! Snap buttons are well-placed and make the romper a practical choice for easy-on and off. Pockets always turn up some surprises at the end of the day (lizard, anyone?), and the slanted placement blend them seamlessly into the design.

Mom & KidsFollowing Featherbottom

featherIt’s always a challenge to find the perfect gift for the new family who already has everything they need, especially because I like to keep it unique and personal. So when a very special newborn arrived this summer, I went on a search for the perfect gift which would be personal and a keepsake. The whimsical story of Felix Featherbottom and his sidekick Pierre du Pond chronicles their adventures flying all over the world, trying to find the letters of the new addition’s name. From an A in Antarctica to a Z in Zimbabwe, Featherbottom takes us on a trip which goes through cities, countries, and regions of the world, inspiring baby to get a passport. The best part is that from newborn to toddler, the book is a favorite because of the remarkable illustrations and colorful letters of the alphabet spelling the child’s name. Even babies enjoy rhymes and rhythm, and the witty one-liners will inevitably coax out that smile. By the time their first birthday comes around, babies already have all the sounds needed to speak their native language! The more they are read aloud to, the better and faster their own speech will come. I’d found that it’s a lot of fun to reference the locations of each letter with its place on a globe, with a starting point of home sweet home.

These cute tyke Mary Janes have fondly been nicknamed “playground shoes” by their pint-sized owner. The Umi brand has thought through everything a toddler and parent could want in a shoe- a generous fit even for chubby feet, easy on-and-off, nonslip stable rubber outsoles, and cute details like this cheerful daisy. Durability and longevity get high ratings for the Cassia shoe considering its top quality materials and workmanship, so these shoes will survive many playground playdates.

Mom & KidsElks & Angels Cuddle Bear

Elks--Angels-Cuddle-Bear-in-ButtermilkTraveling this summer has been a blast- especially since our little lady loves hotels and planes. It’s amusing to see her zip through a new hotel room, exploring bedding and examining toiletries (could this be passed along genetically?). The one thing that’s always a comfort when away from home is a lovey, and her Elks and Angels Cuddle Bear has racked up more frequent flier miles than any other! Made of Australian sheepskin, the high quality softness is instantly addictive. I love it because it’s flat, light and easy to pack, and the natural properties of the sheepskin regulate body temperature whether it’s cool or hot! It’s also naturally anti-bacterial hypoallergenic, so I don’t have to worry as much about picking up germs.

Mom & KidsAppaman Kid Fashion

homepage_slider_2_catalog_boygirlI have endless fun dressing up my toddler, maybe because she can take the fashion risks that I’ve always dreamed of, and her exuberant personality can hang with the coolest designs. Her creative closet is now oozing street cred thanks to fabulous kids’ line Appaman. It’s named after Norwegian designer Harald Husum’s childhood chum, a corduroy ape! Appaman lets imaginations fly, because with a name like that, only adventuresome clothes can be showcased. The pieces tell stories of traveling through imagination, discovering fields and fjords, and celebrating the bond between best friends. Isn’t it great being a kid?

Mom & KidsSnuggle up with Aden + Anais

8062_1-classic-sleeping-bag-up-up-awayThe transition to summer is always an exciting one in our household, between sunny afternoons by the pool, beach trips, and yummy barbeques. Sleeping in warmer weather is a little trickier though, because it can be either too hot or too cold, and I’m contantly adjusting the thermostat in the middle of the night. For my little one, Aden+Anais has the perfect solution to summer slumber, a super lightweight Classic Sleeping Bag. It allows a breathable and comforting layer to stay on all night without restricting moderate movement. I’ve raved about the signature muslin before, and have yet to find anything even comparable. It really does get softer with every wash! I just zip the bag over her diaper and pajama top and she’s snug as a bug all night.
