Today we’re giving away some great new baby products that we love! As parents, we want only the best for our babies, and these companies all know that and deliver on creating great quality products that we believe in.Introducing the monthly Baby Bundle giveaway!

lillebaby carrier

Lillebaby carriers make babywearing a breeze

The baby carrier is my number one baby accessory, hands down. Babywearing has become a part of life for me, and I love it so much. It allows me to be hands-free and mobile, so I can get things done and still have a happy baby! Enter the Lillebaby carrier. If you have a baby of your own, you understand the importance of keeping him happy at all times, to avoid stress and general craziness in the household. I’ve found that when he’s fussy or upset, I can just strap him onto my chest and he’s instantly calm and soothed! It makes sense, doesn’t it, that being strapped close to mama or daddy is his favorite place to be?

Lillebaby makes the most comfortable carrier, with a great back support and padded straps so both baby and mom or dad are happy! This particular carrier is 100% organic cotton, making it so soft and it comes in a pretty blue celeste pattern that we love. You can even carry baby front-facing, rear-facing or on your back! With a variety of positions and the softest fabric, you are going to love the Lillebaby!

monica and andy

The softest blankets by Monica + Andy

Next we have these great Monica + Andy muslin and cotton baby blankets. They are so soft and well made, and perfect for your baby’s gentle skin. I love the size of them, too, as they are great for tummy time, to keep baby warm, as a stroller cover or even a nursing cover! The prints they have to choose from are super cute, too, with the foxes and elephants being my personal favorite. Monica + Andy uses superior fabrics and carry products that are both chic and comfortable, with quality you can feel!

baby pibu

Sensitive skincare for baby by Baby Pibu

Another company I’ve fallen in love with is Baby Pibu skincare. This line was developed by a dermatologist mom, so you know you can trust the products they make, which are all geared toward healing and protecting infants, toddlers and kids. All products are hypoallergenic, irritant free and fragrance free- all very important for your sweet baby’s skin! I especially have been loving Pibu’s Baby Butter skin cream and Diaper Rash ointment. The Baby Pibu products feel luxurious and I love that they are made with Baby in mind.

Difrax Pacifiers

Difrax 3- stage Pacifier System

What’s colorful, trendy, and cute all over?  The hottest new pacifier designs from Difrax, of course!  The award-winning Difrax 3-Stage Pacifier System meets all of the needs of your child’s developmental stages. Difrax pacifiers come in two distinct stylesClassic and Orthodontic and each style has a 3-stage design to accommodate baby’s growth and development. Each pacifier style has a butterfly shape designed to prevent the nose from being obstructed and the added holes in the design allow for sufficient airflow to reduce skin irritation.  Known for their on-trend, colorful pacifier designs, Difrax has added stylish and fashionable new designs to their collection!

Now it’s time for the giveaway, who wants to win all of these amazing products?

It is Child Passenger Safety Week and with school back in session now is a perfect time to talk about car seat safety, especially with many parents belong to carpools and take turns shuttling kids to and from after school activities. We have teamed up with Britax, the leading car seat manufacturer of car seats and booster seats, to help make sure you and your family are safe riding to and from school every day.

Child Passenger Safety Statistics

1. Car crashes are a leading cause of death for children 1 to 13 years old.

2. During the 5-year period from 2008 to 2012, more than 3,390 children were killed in car crashes. In addition, an estimated 613,000 children were injured.

3. In 2012 alone, 121,000 children under age 13 were injured as passengers in car crashes.

4. Based on U.S. Department of Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) crash data, in 2012 on average, nearly 2 children under the age of 13 were killed and 332 were injured every day while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, and vans.

5. In 2012, over one third (37%) of children killed in car crashes were not in car seats, booster seats, or seat belts.

6. Every 34 seconds one child, under age 13, is involved in a crash.

7.  All 50 States, the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories have laws requiring children to be restrained while riding in cars. Some States now require kids to ride in appropriate car seats or booster seats until age 9.

8. The 2013 National Survey of the Use of Booster Seats (NSUBS) shows that only 66 percent of children ages 4-7 were restrained in either forward-facing car seats (20%) or in booster seats (46%). About 24 percent of children ages 4-7 were prematurely moved to seat belts and 9 percent were unrestrained.

9.  Safety is also a big issue for older kids. From 2008-2012, there were 1,874 child passengervehicle occupants in the 8-14 age group killed in crashes. A third of these kids (610) were killed while riding in the front seat. All children under age 13 should always ride in the back seat.

10. Far too many “tween” passengers ride completely unrestrained, exposing them to great risk. Among kids ages 8-14 who died in crashes from 2008-2012, 47 percent of 8-year-olds,

You can visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for more information about Child Safety Seats.

LOOKBOOK03
While we are attending the ABC Kids Expo this week and oogling over all the latest and greatest in baby gear we thought we would let you in on some of the fun too!  One of the companies that we are excited to see at the show is this year is TWELVElittle Diaper Bags. These stylish bags are so fashion forward you’d really have to look twice before thinking they were a diaper bag. For fashionable Moms that want to be sure to keep their individual style while navigating diaper changes then you’ll want to see what TWELVElittle offers.

TWELVElittleDiaperBags

TWELVElittle was founded by close friends and Parsons and RISD alumnae, Julia Min and Jenny Chang. TWELVElittle’s stylish baby bags are inspired by the Asian zodiac and made from high quality water-resistant materials and genuine leather. With many interior and exterior pockets, these bags are perfect for carrying all of the baby essentials. Because Julia and Jenny each have experience in luxury handbag design in New York City, the TWELVElittle bags can easily transition to a regular handbag once you and baby are out of the diaper bag stage.

TWELVElittle Diaper Bag Allure

TWELVELittle Allure Diaper Bag
  • Water resistant coated smooth nylon with leather trim.
  • Two large pleated zipper pockets, and two side hidden bottle pockets with leather trim.
  • Front leather yolk collar has easy access leather slip pocket.
  • Bag can be worn as a satchel with top handle leather straps with drop.
  • By using the long strap, the bag can be worn either as a hobo or a cross body.
  • Hidden zipper pocket on bottom of back side for dirty item quick storage.
  • Easy access top zipper closure.
  • Logo interior lining is coated with PVC-free water-resistant coating.
  • Two interior elastic top slip pockets for bottles, diapers or wipes.
  • Interior zipper pocket and two easy access slip pockets.
  • Back has large slip zipper pocket.
  • Comes with logo lining nylon changing pad.

TWELVElittleDangles

If you are wondering where the name TWELVElittle comes from, as I did. The Twelve Little Wonders is based on the 12 year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Depending on the year and month you were born you are assigned an animal, such as the year of the monkey or the year of the snake and each animal comes with unique characteristics and personality traits. So, TWELVElittle has key chain dangles that attach to their diaper bags so you can carry your “inner animal with you”, and to help you to easily locate your keys. I love this little thoughtful feature that helps you express your unique personality.

TWELVElittle is currently sold at Diapers.com and Giggle and is soon to be launching at Nordstrom, Babies R Us, and BuyBuyBaby.

It’s almost Mother’s Day, Savvies!

So, of course, we’re already thinking about what we might be gifted with on our special day. Sure, a spa day would be a fantastic gift. Or a box of dark chocolates with sea salt or lush peonies or jewelry that sparkles.

But apparently, what we really hope for this year, if we’re totally honest, is a house that sparkles!

Giveaway: Merry Maids gift of a clean house

What mom really wants for Mother’s Day

In a recent survey conducted by Merry Maids, two-thirds of women polled confessed that what they want most for Mother’s Day is to have someone else come in and give their house a thorough top-to-bottom scrub down. And as much as we’d love it if our children truly helped in that endeavor, half of the parents surveyed reported that their children will only help when there’s money involved. And where’s the fun in that?

And although we can’t promise that your kids will help you keep it clean, we want to help you get your house sparkling clean from top to bottom, courtesy of Merry Maids! And we’re still hoping that you’ll enjoy a clean house while you open the delicious chocolate, gorgeous flowers and fantastic jewelry, too!

6pm-style-selfie-savvy-sassy

6pm.com has clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry and more to help you master one of the hottest looks of Spring 2014: Feminine Flair. Take a selfie sporting your own interpretation of the style for the chance to win $150 to shop 6pm.com!

Classic styles are hot

Maybe I have watched a little too much Mad Men, but I am so excited about the old-school femininity that is dominating spring and summer 2014 style. High heels with pointed toes, dangling earrings, structured handbags, lace details and dresses, dresses, dresses all embody femininity and classic prettiness. And they look great on everyone!

I was tasked with the ridiculously fun job of personally styling a few looks from 6pm.com that showcase spring’s feminine flair. If you have not yet shopped this incredible online outlet store that features the coolest brands and latest trends, you are in for a treat. At 6pm.com you will find your favorite designers, sexy shoes, hot handbags and more for up to 75 percent off.

Dresses are a favorite

I am a dress gal. One easy piece that highlights my curves and flatters my figure is my go-to outfit anchor for spring and summer. 6pm.com has oodles of classic, gorgeous dresses by one of my favorite frock designers: Calvin Klein. My first dress choice at 6pm.com is the Calvin Klein black and white dolman sleeve dress. It is so versatile — I can wear it for day or night, for work or going out. Although it is not covered in chintz, the tailoring of the dress is ladylike and is a perfect foil for the awesomely aggressively feminine black bow-bedecked platform sandals from Isola.

6pm-fashion

These shoes are adorable, no? I love the bows and the platform lengthens the legs. To complete the look I added gold chandelier earrings by Sparkling Sage. I love how these three simple pieces — plus softly girly hair and makeup — make for a pulled-together feminine flair look.

6pm-jewelry

Another easy feminine flair look I styled with 6pm.com embraces more color…the Pantone Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, that is! Again I fell for a dress by Calvin, this silky shirt dress. A spring staple, a shirt dress always looks both professional and pretty. If you have spring or summer trips planned, this dress is a great pick — it traveled crazy well. I just flew cross-country for a weekend conference and though I crumpled it in my carry-on, it survived without a wrinkle or the need to steam in the hotel bathroom. I paired it with Franco Sarto wedge heeled sandals that are so comfy I walked around Disneyland in them. Seriously.

6pm-shirt-dress

Thanks for making it through my feminine flair selfies. I am sure you can take better ones and style even more fabulously feminine looks for spring. And that is exactly what the folks at 6pm.com would like you to do!

WIN IT!

Take a photo of yourself (or recruit a family member — the pics above were shot by my 8-year-old daughter Eve) showcasing your personal take on the Feminine Flair look. Then tag your pics on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and/or Pinterest with the unique hashtag #6pmStyleSelfieFeminine. You can take and post as many #6pmStyleSelfieFeminine pics as you want, there is no limit, and every post on a social media channel counts as an entry.

You might win $150 gift certificate to shop 6pm.com!
Just make sure you post them before the contest ends on Tuesday April 22, 2014.
I cannot wait to see your styles!

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own, and thank you for your support in our effort to bring you exciting giveaways.

In the world of infant car seats safety is king and design is gold, but if the true test of a superior infant car seat is how long your baby will sleep in it, the Maxi-Cosi Mico AP infant car seat wins hands down. I’ve been fortunate enough to try out both the Mico AP and another high-end infant car seat for my now 4-month-old. And while both have their pros and cons, the Mico AP is definitely the one she prefers… and really, isn’t that all that matters?

Lightest in its class

Touted as the “lightest infant car seat in its class”, the Mico AP is indeed incredibly light at a mere 8.6 pounds. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to lift it with the baby inside — especially after having lugged a much heavier version with her older sister. It comes in 14 stylish color choices that any savvy sassy mom would love and works with the car seat adapter for our Uppa Baby Vista which has been super convenient.

Safety features

It also features the advanced Air Protect® Side Impact Technology which, to me, looks incredibly secure. Baby must feel super cozy in the appropriately named Cozi Dozi infant insert as she almost always instantly falls asleep in it… and stays asleep! Beyond all this, the fabric just looks so cushy and comfy even I’d love to doze in it. It’s super easy to clip in and out of the car seat base, and lifting it out of the car is a breeze. While I wish the sun canopy was a bit larger, it’s still significantly larger than the first infant car seat we owned.

maxi cosi mico ap

Other features of the Mico AP
  • For children rear-facing from 5 to 22 pounds and up to 29” in height
  • Superior Side Impact Performance with Air Protect® technology
  • Includes a convenient stay-in-car adjustable base
  • Premium fabrics and padding for a comfy ride
  • Includes Cozi-Dozi™ infant support for smaller babies
  • Integrated canopy, always on hand and easy to store
  • Flip-out visor on canopy for extra protection when needed
  • 5-point harness with up-front harness adjustment
  • Adapters to use Mico as travel system included with compatible Maxi-Cosi and Quinny strollers**
  • Adapters for many other premium strollers available from the stroller manufacturer
  • Available accessories (sold separately):
  • Foot Muff to keep baby warm
  • WeatherShield
  • Breathable Bug Net
  • Additional stay-in-car bases

All in all, this is an infant car seat that I would highly recommend to any of my friends and am so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to try it out. This is one baby purchase you won’t regret (unlike that bottle sterilizer taking up tons of counter space!).
