Best Stokke Sleepi promotion ever

From now through October 15, if you purchase a Stokke Sleepi, the mattress (or mattresses, depending on which configuration you get) will be FREE. We are incredibly psyched about this. A) because it’s an amazing value and B) because I have two Sleepi systems in my house, and love them and think every parent should have one. Aside from the ... Read More »

Oeuf Robin Collection Debuts at Magic Beans

With the economy still trying to claw its way out of the toilet, we’re seeing a trend towards “affordable luxury” in the baby industry. Oeuf is one of the first to market, with their new Robin nursery furniture, a modern, eco-friendly collection priced at under $600 per piece. The set includes a crib ($565), a dresser ($585), and a toddler ... Read More »

Day 21 – Monte Luca Glider

This is a story that’s taken me almost 11 months to tell, mostly because the humiliation has just recently worn off. Almost. At the ABC Kids Expo this past September, I was in rough shape. I was barely 4 weeks post-partum and terribly sick with what we would later discover was Crohn’s Disease. I could barely walk around the vast ... Read More »

Day 13 – Oeuf Classic Toy Store

When we approached Oeuf about our 31 Days of Giveaways celebration, we thought we’d be talking about giving away a crib. But once we saw the Toy Store, we realized it was an even better choice for Day 13. Every family struggles with toy storage – it’s extremely challenging to find a way to keep toys neat and organized, while ... Read More »

Day 8 – Naturepedic No-Compromise Organic Crib Mattress

Organic mattresses are the newest trend for eco-conscious, natural-minded parents. And this is great news, since mattresses are notorious for harboring all kinds of icky chemicals. But many of the die-hard organic mattresses eschew all non-organic substances, leaving them one spectacular diaper blow-out away from permanent damage. Naturepedic takes a more practical approach in their No-Compromise crib mattress. The insides ... Read More »

Bin-Go is its name-o

Just in from Skip Hop is the brand new Bin-Go, yet another utterly genius product from the gifted design team who pioneered the original diaper-bag-that-hangs-on-your-stroller. A few weeks ago, I was in New York for a couple of days, and my husband and I stopped by the Skip Hop studio for a sneak preview of all that is new and ... Read More »

A better bumper

If you have the temperament for it, one of the most fun parts of preparing for a new baby is decorating the nursery. Even for a decor-challenged mom-to-be (that’s me), there’s a thrill to choosing the colors and patterns that will adorn the baby’s room. Bedding is a big piece of the puzzle, and most well-dressed cribs sport a bumper. ... Read More »

Nilo gets a face lift

Nilo tables have long been admired by parents for their sturdy, solid wood construction, and the wide expanse of play space, perfect for wooden trains, blocks, games, Lego, craft activities or anything else a kid could dream up. But for all the great functionality, the Nilo table isn’t exactly a sexy piece of furniture. The angular profile seems much better ... Read More »

Demanding supply

Two of my favorite items for the fourth quarter are having serious availability issues, and it’s a bummer. The Svan Miniature Table and Chairs set isn’t going to be available again until 2008 because of an issue with their last shipment. I haven’t heard the whole story yet, but I do know that they’re pretty much impossible to find at ... Read More »
