Think of new parenthood as a year-long trek through a country that you’ve never visited before. You may know a bit about the culture and terrain, but there’s no definitive map, and the inhabitants don’t speak your language.
It’s a good thing that other people have thoroughly explored this territory and can guide you on your way through Babyland. We can set you up with all the equipment you’ll need on your journey: baby carriers that make it easy to tote your tot, whether you’re climbing mountains or just hanging around the house; a variety of diaper bags that includes options for every Mommy style; baby bouncers and baby rockers to help you soothe your child to sleep; and baby monitors and babyproofing equipment to ease your worries.
And all of your favorite brands are available to equip you on your voyage: carriers from Ergo Baby, Baby Bjorn, Moby Wrap and more; diaper bags from Skip Hop, Petunia Pickle Bottom and others; the MamaRoo Bouncer; and hundreds of other companies and products you trust.
Babyland isn’t very far away – but at least you’re not traveling alone. Get your baby gear from the experts at Magic Beans, and if you’re not sure which way to go, we’ve got personal shoppers and a registry service to give you a hand.
Babywearing is in. Pediatricians, psychologists, and your big sister will tell you that wearing your child in a baby carrier can be just the trick for a happier child. It helps satisfy both your baby’s and your own need for closeness and affection: she will feel calm and secure when she is snuggled up against you in a baby carrier and hears your reassuring heartbeat. It’s not a passing trend, either: babywearing is a natural and instinctive practice for parents, and studies show that babies cry less when held or worn in a baby carrier.
Our hand-selected assortment of baby carriers gives you a variety of choices that suit your lifestyle and personality. Try a soft-bodied baby carrier like the Beco Gemini or an Ergo Baby carrier like their popular Original Baby Carrier, brand-new 360 Baby Carrier, or Stowaway Baby Carrier for parents who are on-the-move! Not for you? Maybe check out a super-supportive structured carrier like the BabyBjorn Miracle Baby Carrier or Stokke MyCarrier Baby Carrier or a wrap-style baby carrier like the Moby Wrap. For active families, we have a great selection of baby backpack carriers from Deuter.
Of all the baby products that we sell, we believe that diaper bags give moms the best opportunity to demonstrate their own unique style. Whether you’re a fashionista or a practical gal, a hipster or a prepster, your diaper bag reflects who you are. Our diaper bag selection offers a variety of styles, shapes, colors, and patterns to suit any personality and match any outfit: handbags and tote bags, messenger bags, hobo bags, diaper bag backpacks, mini changers, and stroller clips, too. read more
But all of our diaper bags have one thing in common: they’re spacious and loaded with pockets to keep all of your baby (and mommy) essentials organized. At the end of the day, a diaper bag must be an efficient delivery system for bottles and pacis, dry diapers and wipes, toys and snacks, and all the other items that baby needs every time you leave the house. Because regardless of her style, every mom needs it to be as easy as possible to keep her baby happy.
Not sure which one of these diaper bags is for you? Drop us a line and we’ll give you a hand – our customer service staff know our stock inside-out and love matching parents with the right products. show less
Sometimes, much to your baby’s chagrin, you need to use your arms for something else other than holding him. When that moment comes, a baby bouncer, baby rocker, or baby chair can come to the rescue, keeping baby happy while you eat dinner, or type an email, or fix your hair. read more
Our selection of baby seats falls into three basic categories: baby seats for sleep, baby seats for play, or baby seats for… sitting. Most of these baby chairs perform more than one function – for instance, the 4moms Mamaroo baby swing can be used to rock baby to sleep or used as a stationary seat for play.
Speaking of the Mamaroo, this awesome electronic baby chair is a deluxe sleep solution, with robotic technology that imitates the motions parents use to rock babies to sleep. You can choose from five Mamaroo motions, and use programmed-in music or your own iPod to lull baby to sleep. Want a simpler single-motion version of the Mamaroo? The 4moms Rockaroo baby rocker sways baby back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, with adjustable speed settings and dangling toys.
Or, for an even simpler sleep solution, why not try the Nuna Leaf Floating Baby Lounger? This wildly popular baby chair will rock gently side to side for up to three minutes with a single push, smoothly and silently. The Oeko-Tex certified better-for-baby fabrics are soft, cozy, and machine-washable, and you can remove an insert to reveal cool mesh for warmer days. Oh, and the weight limit on the Nuna Leaf is a whopping 130 pounds, making this the only baby bouncer that kids can keep sitting and swaying in long after infancy has passed!
If you’re looking for a really basic bouncer that moves as baby wiggles, try the Baby Bjorn Bouncer Balance: it works the same way as the original Bjorn bouncer from the 1960s, and either you or your parents probably bounced in one! The Bloom Coco baby rocker is also simple and classic, and gorgeous, to boot.
Finally, when you’re talking baby chairs, you can’t skip the Bumbo Baby Seat, the hugely popular foam seat that’s perfect for virtually any environment. The Bumbo seat lets babies who can’t sit up yet on their own get a broader view of the world, and parents and babies both love it!
With all these great options for baby seats, you may want some advice on which seat is best for you. We’re happy to help – give us a call or join us on live chat and we can help you figure out which baby seat fits best into your home and your lifestyle. show less
Many moms report that they have something that you might call a “mother’s ear”: a heightened sense of hearing that can hear the baby crying from all the way across the house. Whether you have this mommy superpower or not, though, it always helps to have an extra set of ears (and even eyes) around the house: a baby monitor. read more
We offer a variety of video and audio baby monitors, with both digital monitors and analog monitors from top brands including Mobi Technologies, Philips, The First Years, and Summer Infant. The best choice for you will depend on what level of reassurance you feel that you need. If you just want to hear your baby when she wakes up, a simple audio monitor will do; digital baby monitors filter out static and noise, and ensure that your baby’s cries won’t be heard on the baby monitor next door. If it will make you feel better to be able to peer in on her, video baby monitors add an extra level of reassurance (and, when your baby becomes an active toddler, they let you nip assorted mischief in the bud).
Additional features you might want on a baby monitor include night vision, lights or vibration (so if you’re in a noisy room, a flicker will still alert you to baby’s crying), additional receivers, and rechargeable batteries. An intercom function is a great bonus – you may be able to sing baby to sleep through the baby monitor without even getting out of bed!
The right baby monitor for you will depend on a number of lifestyle factors, so if you’re not sure which one of these models is the best fit, contact us and we’ll help you choose. Our customer service associates are experts on our product selection, and they’ll ask you the right questions to determine which baby monitor is best for you.
And finally: remember that a baby monitor is more for you than for the baby. Baby emergencies are rare, so the main purpose of your baby monitor is to help you feel that no cry will go unnoticed and no distress will go uncomforted. A baby monitor is a tool that’s designed to increase your confidence and peace of mind, so you can relax and enjoy being a parent, and maybe get a little sleep every now and then. show less
Babies are curious and capricious little people, determined to explore, and with no sensible boundaries other than the ones you set for them. And while most toddlers are appropriately supervised, it only takes seconds for a child to get into trouble. Most accidental injuries in the home aren’t serious, but there are a whole lot of them – about 2.3 million kids between ages 1 and 4 are injured within the home.
So that’s why we offer a wide-ranging selection of child safety and baby proofing gear. read more
This section also includes assorted first aid items to help you treat baby’s coughs and colds, bumps and bruises. Digital thermometers make it quick and easy to find out whether baby’s got a fever or not; the Red Cross Health Kit keeps all of your first aid odds and ends in one convenient spot; and TheraPearl cold packs replace tears with smiles with their adorable designs. We also have a few baby products from FridaBaby, a company that has imported some of Sweden’s more unique baby health items to the US. The NoseFrida nasal aspirator may sound weird, but moms swear by it!
Finally, while this section largely concentrates on protecting your baby, we’ve also got a few products here that protect fragile items FROM your baby. The SuperShell iPad Case provides supreme protection for that precious, expensive kid-magnet, and the BubCap Home Button Cover allows toddlers to enjoy iPhone apps without destroying your data.
