The world’s cutest tableware for kids: We have a contender!

When my kids first started eating solids, they often reminded me of wild baby animals — flinging food all over the place, trying to eat without using their hands, and getting all the gooiest stuff mashed into their hair. So I’m pretty impressed with the new kids’ tableware line from Marcus & Marcus  which offers cute, animal-inspired designs help our littlest ones learn to eat like, well, like little humans.

10 of the best glass baby bottles for Earth Day and any day.

With news that even Phthalate-free and BPA-free plastic baby bottles may not be all they’re cracked up to be, more parents are on the hunt for glass baby bottles. While not long ago, the idea of glass baby bottles once inspired panic in the hearts of new parents — and I remember those days! — glass in the diaper bag is becoming increasingly prevalent. Even old school bottle brands that were holding out for years are now out with glass alternatives and hey, we’re all for choice when it comes to our baby gear. Glass baby bottles, for the uninitiated are made of...

Klean Kanteen, now insulated for keeping that extra-hot macchiato extra-hot on the go

Along with so many other parents, we’re longtime fans of the cult favorite, eco-friendly, stainless steel water bottles from Klean Kanteen. They give us confidence in the “not killing our kids” department, and do a great job of making our water tasting like water, even when the bottle held a strawberry smoothie the day before. And now that we’ve spent a few weeks crunching through icy snow every day, I’m pretty excited to get my hands on their new double-walled, Kleen Kanteen vacuum insulated water bottles, designed to keep drinks steaming hot for up to 6 hours. This is big news! And a definite improvement to the cold coffee I’ve been...

A fashionable pacifier clip? Who knew.

Teething babies have been sinking their chompers into colorful, fashionable and safe Chewbeads ever since their bracelets and necklaces started appearing on the coolest new mamas. And now, along with their toddler-friendly teethers and playful older-kid Juniorbeads, they’ve come up with their own line of pacifier clips to keep many babies’ favorite mouth accessory right where they want it. Chewbeads’ “Where’s the Pacifier?” Pacifier Clip keeps those pesky binkies attached with a cute silicone clip tethered to their trademark soft beads that are safe to chew on, and bright enough to find should they become lost in a pile of stuffed animals. Even better, some of those...

The insulated water bottle that makes my heart S’well

When I asked my friend at the park about her water bottle and she told me it was, and I quote, the best water bottle in the world, obviously I had to know more. She introduced me to S’well, a line of insulated water bottles that keep drinks cold without leaking or getting any condensation on the side. And it turns out I may be the last to know about them, since they were featured in our back to school guide this year as one of the coolest lunchbox accessories. The first thing you’ll notice is that S’well bottles are absolutely...

Picnic-perfect plastic tableware for toddlers

It’s picnic weather down South, and we’re spending most nights out on the back porch, sipping on some tea and eating dinner with the neighbors. It’s idyllic, until the kids start playing frisbee with their plates. I’m not big on plastic dinnerware inside, but when we’re dining al fresco you never know what can happen, so I stick with the non-breakable–and preferably non-toxic–variety of kids’ cups dishes tableware. If you’re looking for an option beyond melamine but with the same durability and convenience, our family’s new favorites are the cool kids’ dishes in Lollaland’s mealtime set. Made in the USA in...

Is it safe for babies to suck on keys? They are if they’re these keys.

I swear I am not Alarmist Mom. I did not plug every outlet when my kids were toddlers and my jeans were the only pacifier sterilizer I owned. But one thing I knew is that I didn’t want my kids sucking on keys, knowing that real keys may be one of the worst things for them to put in their mouths. And that includes the cat.    I’m so happy to see that CMP favorite Green Toys has expanded their baby toys line with a set of toy keys for babies that they can teethe on to their heart’s content, and...

The water bottle that never leaks. Ever.

I’m kind of floored to admit that the new Active Top Smart Drinking System from SIGG absolutely refused to leak no matter how much I abused it. This new line of bottles for adults and kids has a liner that’s eco-friendly, BPA-free and phthalate-free, plus it’s recyclable and practically unbreakable. It’s designed so that kids can drink out of this bottle without tilting it–not to mention carry it upside down in a backpack full of report cards or fall asleep with it in their lap during a long car trip and wake up with dry pants. And I know,...

Baby-friendly bling: necklaces safe for little nibblers

When my son was a baby, he was fascinated by my jewelry–a fascination that led to his stuffing fistfuls of my necklaces into his curious mouth. Worried that my necklaces might be sporting some not-so-friendly chemicals, I stopped wearing them altogether. At the time, I didn’t have any other option–because I didn’t have any Chewbeads. Chewbeads, which we love so much you’ll find them in our Baby Shower Gift Guide, are every bling-crazy mom’s salvation. These non-toxic, silicone jewelry pieces are stylish for mama and intriguingly colorful (and mouth-safe) for babies who like to chomp. And now I’m loving...
