Dr. Harvey Karp answers parents’ biggest sleep questions. Yes! | Spawned ep 68

On this week’s episode of the Spawned podcast, we are excited to welcome Dr. Harvey Karp, of Happiest Baby on the Block fame, though he virtually needs no introduction. We’re so excited he joined us to answer some of parents most difficult questions about sleep, whether they’ve got newborns or, uh…tweens. We appreciate his common sense, non-judgmental approach to sleep, not to mention some of the tips that saved our own lives when we were new parents. (If you know his genius 5 S’s, you know just what we mean.)   Listen now! And don’t forget to subscribe to Spawned with Kristen...

Grocery shopping with a baby? You’ve got to see this cool shopping cart hammock.

The logistics of shopping with a baby in tow can be challenging, to say the least. But this clever creation from Binxy Baby changes everything. I can hear parents everywhere rejoicing. Related: From the OMG files: The portable changing table that hangs from the bathroom stall door. Roll it up, and you can easily toss this shopping cart hammock in a diaper bag or tote. We haven’t tested this ourselves, but from the instructions online, it looks super easy to install onto a shopping cart and to secure your child into the hammock.

From the OMG files: The portable changing table that hangs from the bathroom stall door.

Until there’s a changing table in every restroom — male and female — one company has come up with an innovative solution in a portable baby changing table. And it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen. The Baby Change-n-Go was designed by two moms with toddler twins, with the hopes of saving parents a whole lot of grief when the only option is to change your baby on the bathroom floor (ew) or in your lap. It’s small enough to fit in your diaper bag until you need it. Then you just unfold it, and basically slip over the top of any public restroom stall door. Fold it down, and you’ve got...

Could this simple idea finally make potty training easier for parents?

I tried reward charts, treats, and downright begging when it came to potty training, and my daughter was having none of it. So when I heard about Pee-kaboo potty training stickers, created by a stay-at-home mother of two who lives in my own town (go New Jersey moms!) I was like, whoa. Could this be the help that desperate potty training parents have been looking for?

Kind of like the plus...

Finally: an affordable convertible high chair that looks like it should cost way more.

New parents know — or soon learn — how ideal it is to find baby gear that grows with your baby, especially when you’re on a budget. Which is why we’re thrilled to discover the beautifully made, modern new Tuo Convertible High Chair from our friends at Skip*Hop. Honestly, we all tend to be fairly skeptical at this point about new baby gear that promises great looks and functionality all at a low price, but having had the chance to try a review unit for myself, well…score!

A play mat that teaches your baby how to speak emoji. (Insert winking face here.)

When my kids were babies and tummy-time touring their way throughout the house, it was a given that their play mat migrated to each room with them. And while I have fond memories of our jungle themed mat and odd interactive thingies (who doesn’t love a squeaking, googly eyed hippo, honestly?), I’m at least 98 percent sure my now-tech-loving littles would have preferred the Emoji Baby Play Mat.

There’s a ton of high-tech baby gear out there these days — but not all of it is stuff we’d actually use or recommend.

Personalize a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair — a very special holiday gift for a very lucky child.

If you’re looking for a truly special holiday gift for a friend, family member, or for your own little bundle of joy, we think that the Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair, now available with free personalized engraving, is a fabulous option. We’re big fans of the Tripp Trapp at Cool Mom Picks. It’s a classic (seriously, it’s been around since the ’70s), it’s nice to look at (Scandinavian style is just the coolest), and it transitions from one stage to the next — year after year — your child’s once-beloved highchair becoming their homework desk chair. So we love that this chair can now have a truly...

Adorable silicone teethers that look just like donuts and other treats. Sweet!

Every good baby deserves donuts and ice cream and Oreos… at least in the form of adorable silicone teethers. Not only are they so delicious, you just want to gobble them up (the teethers, not the babies), they’re also super safe and carefully constructed. That’s one less thing to worry about. Oh, and the donuts contain no trans fats. Heh. Related: Teething toys so beautiful, they’re like your baby’s first accessory.     The teethers, which we found at Spearmint Love, are made of 100% food grade silicone and can be chilled for added relief while teething. The ones that come with...
