The new BabyBjörn watercolor collection is a thing of beauty

Okay so maybe we didn’t completely buy those pastel Pantone colors of the year during the winter. But now? Spring! And just in time, BabyBjörn is totally on trend with a new line of baby gear they call the BabyBjörn Watercolor Collection. In fact, I get a little daydream-y just looking at all those icy blues and soft turquoises, and not because I’m jonesing for a new baby to stick in their carriers.  (Though if you have one, I’ll gladly ooh and ahh at you.) Not every color is available for every item. Like you’ll find our highly recommended BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light in...

Since we’re always looking for anything that will make parents’ lives easier, we’re so excited to break the news today about the brand new Ergobaby ADAPT.

Life with newborns made easier? Yes, please. It’s hard enough to get kids and babies and all their gear out the door, so anything that requires fewer parts is a big win for us....

Trend alert: diaper bags are going chic with black and white this spring

We’re happily getting ready for kid number four at our house, and with that, a return to diapers. While I’m not exactly excited about the wiping bottoms part, again (because, really, who is?), I am excited to find a new chic diaper bag to tote around all my stuff. I’m happy to report that this spring the trend is black and white. Very classic! Plus, it really goes with anything you choose to wear (barring baby spit-up).

Micuna’s cool modern baby furniture from Spain, now finally available in the U.S.

I’ve had my eye on Micuna, a popular, gorgeous line of eco-friendly, modern baby furniture made in Spain, for a while now. But shipping from Europe is kind of a nonstarter. Well, now parents of new babies — at least who happen to have an ample nursery decor budget — are in luck, because Micuna is finally available in the U.S. They make the kind of high chair you won’t stash away in the pantry when friends come over to dinner, and the Micuna crib is probably one you’ll keep for your grandkids one day. They’re that nice. However the real reason Micuna has become such a cult favorite...

My First Book of Girl Power. Lasso of Truth, not included.

Hold on to your bracelets of submission, ladies. We’ve found a smart new gift for girls. My First Book of Girl Power by Julie Merberg teaches our little girls what it means to be strong, important, and powerful. The geek in me loves that I’ve found a cool, comic book-inspired gift for the kids in my life (they’re all getting one of these now, by the way), but it’s the mom in me that adores that this board book is not just a nod to comic book culture. There are some important lessons for all kids — boys and girls of all ages — in the pages of...

How beautiful swaddle blankets are helping babies in need of more than just sleep

What’s even better than snuggling your baby in the soft, stylish swaddle blankets we love from Buttermilk Babies? Knowing that your purchase is going to help low-income kids get the things they need to feel well-cared for. That makes me feel all the warm fuzzies inside, too. To celebrate their one-year anniversary, Buttermilk Babies will donate 50% of the proceeds from every single sale to Baby2Baby, a terrific LA-based organization that distributes new and gently used items to underprivileged kids.  But this campaign is only through February 29, so hurry! The hard part will be picking the item you love best. Buttermilk...

Babyation: A smart, stylish breast pump. Nope, pigs aren’t flying.

My breast pump definitely got the job done, but it was certainly not stylish. Or smart. Try awkward and uncomfortable. But the husband and wife team behind Babyation are aiming to change that. Their new breast pump might be exactly what nursing moms have been hoping for. Babyation is the brain child of Jared Miller and Samantha Rudolph, born after they realized breast pumps really hadn’t changed much since the 1850s. Talk about scary! So, they set out to make a pump that’s super quiet, very discreet (as in, no boobage on display), and smart — it interfaces with an app that gives moms...

Rockin’ Baby goes from slings to a cool kids’ line that gives back in a big way

Our editor Liz, who once touted herself as “sling-incompetent,” fell in love with Rockin’ Baby slings years ago both for their style and their charitable do-gooding that supports mothers in need. I count myself among their fans too. So we both couldn’t be any more excited about their new baby and kids clothing collection. Related: Gender neutral clothes for cool kids that leave the stereotypes behind. Their super cute clothes will outfit kids newborn to age 10, and plenty of it is on sale right now. Up to 40% off in fact. The prices are fantastic, and yet every single item is still made beautifully right...
