Mom & KidsJJ Rabbit

Slider-CUPPIES41Mealtime just became a lot more stylish and easy with the smartly designed collection from JJ Rabbit. The line was clearly thought up by parents with a lot of experience with toddlers but with one eye responsibly on safe, environmentally-sound materials. Plant-based construction is something I find astounding, and on some level still can’t believe that the sturdy plastic cups and plates are biodegradable and compostable, made from corn and sugarcane! They’re still dishwasher safe (phew!), and don’t contain any BPAs, pthalates, or PVC. Here’s a quick rundown of their fun collection.

Mom & KidsLittle Passports

ppOn the hottest days of summer, I search near and far for unique indoor activities. A fave of ours is Little Passports, which is educational, fun, and allows for “world travel” without leaving the living room! The “Global Adventure” starts with a suitcase full of goodies including an introduction to Sofia and Sam, two kids who zoom around the globe to exotic locations on their magic scooter, a big fold-out map, and of course, a passport for stickers from every country visited. Every month, a surprise package arrives with a new country to highlight, complete with pictures, a new story from Sofia and Sam, and some kind of activity. My favorite so far is the Egypt package, which came with a pyramid hiding a buried treasure. Tools provided were small shovels and a hammer to “excavate” the treasure, in our case a bronze pharaoh head.

Mom & Kidsaden + anais layette

adenI’m so excited to break the news that aden + anais, my fave brand for baby swaddles, blankets, bibs, and more has finally launched a line of layette clothing (available on the 27th)! The only thing better than being all wrapped up in the sweet cotton muslin is wearing it all day. I’m absolutely in love with the adorable shapes and prints for both tiny boys and girls. I’ve trusted both my babies with aden + anais products, which are uber-soft and absorbent, and hold up amazingly well to constant washing and drying. They only get softer with time and use!

Books, Mom & KidsBook Review: When Lyla Got Lost

lyla

It’s hard to think about my little girl growing up sometimes, and realizing that loving her so much also makes me want to protect her as much as possible. Now that she’s becoming more independent, I absolutely want her to know what to do if she ever finds herself separated from us. The new book launching today, When Lyla Got Lost (and Found) is a perfect way to introduce precautionary measure to a child without scaring them. The book is simple enough for a 3-year-old to understand, but the message is pertinent for older children as well. The watercolor illustrations are endearing and cute- and they certainly engaged my munchkin. Moms can all relate to that split second where something shiny or bouncy takes the attention of a little one, and suddenly they are out of sight! Lyla’s experience provides peace of mind for both parents and children, so a happy (and relieved) reunion can take place.
