We’re on Martha Stewart! Yipeeeee!

Our editor Liz Gumbinner practically skipped out of the 26th Street studios after her taping of the Martha Stewart Show this week. (Okay, she did skip, according to some reports. Just a little.)  Please catch Liz on Martha’s big baby shower episode, airing this Friday, February 17! Set your alarms (or DVRs) for Friday at 10AM on the Hallmark Channel or again at 1PM if you miss it. We’ll post a link when we’ve got it. Don’t worry– Liz won’t be making a cake shaped like a diaper from scratch, or hand-varnishing a crib. But she and Martha are hosting...

Born angry.

ust when we thought we might be over Angry Birds, one of our favorite little baby companies goes and makes a brand new, very well-done Angry Birds for babies collection. Happily, the birds all look more happy than anything. Guess they just cleared level 6-12? Swaddle Designs, makers of the flannel receiving blankets that my own firstborn spent many months in, now has a whole Angry Birds Baby collection. You’ll find your favorite characters beautifully printed on high quality flannel blankets, muslin swaddlers, lovies, and even snapsuits. I saw them at Toy Fair this past week and color me...

Red baby gear that will look great all year round

Other than wearing hearts on their clothing and looking at us with love in their eyes, our babies are still a little young to be celebrating Valentine’s Day with lollipops or big messy chocolate hearts. But since we love red all the time, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite red baby gear, that will look bright, fresh and modern all year long–more than I can say for those roses. We are in love with the contemporary shape of Bloom’s new Coco Rosso lounger. No noisy bells or batteries required, this simple self-rocker lets our babies gaze at the...

We <3 this bottle because it's #twittering

Why is this new SIGG bottle awesome for Valentine’s Day? Because no one can live without water. (And lots of us can’t live without Twitter.) It’s a child-sized bottle, but I would totally drink from it. Damask, birds, flowers, bright colors, and all the usual things we love about SIGG, including BPA- and phalate-free aluminum lining and near-unbreakability (that’s a word, right?). Perfect for a little girl’s lunchbox. Perfect for a Twitter-addict’s laptop bag. And perfect for Valentine’s Day, especially when filled with Hershey’s Kisses.~Delilah Find the Twittering .4-liter SIGG bottle at the SIGG site or check for a...

The stroller bag for baby hipsters

Not every baby wants to jet about town covered in a glorified sleeping bag. Some may feel the need to be a little more stylish than that. For those baby hipsters, we’ve got just the solution for chilly days. Behold the Smally Hoodmuff. I love this thing. Not only is it certifiably adorable–I mean come on, it looks like a comfy hoodie sweatshirt–it’s also ridiculously easy to use. We’ve had no trouble attaching it to our stroller seat and zipping baby in. And though it’s obviously not intended for frigid  winter days, I like it as an extra layer...

The Bugaboo Cameleon goes purple for 2012

My favorite color is purple, which not an easy shade to find on a stroller–until now. The coveted Bugaboo Cameleon just added a gorgeous new shade of deep purple to its family and we’re digging it. But if you do too, you have to hurry! Obviously a Bugaboo Cameleon is a fantastic stroller choice, regardless of the color, but the gorgeous new deep purple hue ads a modern style statement, if red and navy aren’t your style. Unfortunately, it’s available only for a limited time–and only at Buy Buy Baby. But the Chameleon stroller itself will last you a...

All in favor of gorgeous diaper bags, say Oi.

I can’t say that I mourn the fact that my diaper bag carrying days are over. But really, it’s the diapers I’m glad to be over with, not the bags. Especially when they’re as awesome as this one. When I got a first glimpse of this OiOi hobo sack in silver, the word oooohhhhh may have escaped my lips. Last season I loved their jungle leather slouch bag, but now I’m liking this one to get me through the dreary days of winter, into spring, and possibly summer. Silver is pretty awesome with white, after all. It’s made so...

Adorable, eco-friendly baby clothes and gifts, 50%-80% off until they’re gone (sniffle)

It’s bittersweet when we see a mom-owned boutique that we love, close up shop. What Every Baby Needs, say it ain’t so! But if there’s an upside, it’s the amazing discounts. You can now score 50% off everything on the site and up to 80% off sale and clearance items. Serious steals here, mamas. We’ve always adored the huge selection of cute baby boy shirts and toddler boy shirts shirts (so hard to find!) at the shop not to mention the great selection of girls clothes, baby slings, baby toys (like these awesome crochet rattles from Anne Clare-Petit) and...

Potty training, now a lot less stinky

I thought my three-year-old was a total potty pro until I learned today that he has been peeing in his closet every night for a week. Oops. If only we had this fresh and truly inventive new potty, I think a lot of things would stink less.  You might think it would be hard to improve upon something as simple as a potty, but Munchkin has joined Arm & Hammer to create the Munchkin 3-in-1 potty that eliminates odors (with baking soda, of course) and encourages better bathroom habits than evidently I did. It functions as a step stool,...

Baby mats go eco-chic

One of my favorite pre-bedtime rituals with my son is massaging his little feet before I put him in his PJs. He immediately relaxes and gives me the biggest smile. I usually do this routine on his changing table, which is never that easy because he squirms way too close to the edge for my taste. Thanks to a new beautiful, yummy-soft massage mat, I have a new, non-scary spot to give my little guy a rub down. The luxurious Quilted Massage Mat from the moms at Honeydumplings (the creators of those awesome buckwheat pillows) is one of those...
