As a parent of a new baby, one of your biggest concerns is caring for them in the best way possible. The baby market is a flood of information and products, which can be a bit daunting to new parents — especially when it comes to using products that will go directly on your newborn’s skin. From bathing to lotion to sunscreen, you want to know that everything that comes in contact with that sweet baby skin is safe and gentle.

Newborn Essentials Kit from Baby Pibu

Baby Pibu is an organic newborn skincare line that takes into consideration the importance of taking care of your newborn from head to toe with direct input from an expert. What better way to ensure that you are getting the best newborn skincare than from a dermatologist who is a mom herself?

Newborn Skincare Must-Haves
One-stop newborn skincare shop

Dr. Amy Kim, a board certified surgical dermatologist, created Baby Pibu’s Newborn Essentials Skincare Kit as an easy way to provide parents with the comfort that they are using safe and gentle products on their baby’s skin. Rather than choosing a product here or a product there for Baby’s skincare needs, she wanted parents to be able to get everything they needed for their new addition in one convenient place.

What Sunscreens are Safe for Newborns?

The kit contains 10 of Baby Pibu’s top skin care products, including the Moms on Call endorsed Intensive Bottom Relief. Everything from shampoo to eczema care, the Newborn Essentials Skincare Kit has it all.

Well coordinated

One of our favorite things about the Baby Pibu Newborn Essentials Skincare Kit is that it is designed to be color coded. Each kit contains a super helpful, and easy to read, set of Doctor Instructions. Each care card conveniently coordinates to a product in the kit. Simply match the color of the instructions to one of the products of the same color and you are easily able to identify what product suits your newborn’s skincare needs. Genius! Nothing is nicer as a new (and tired) parent than being able to quickly access information on care that your little one might need.

Au natural

When it comes to your newborn’s skin, natural is the way to go. Baby Pibu has taken great care to make sure that their products are free of all those icky chemicals and potential allergens. Each products is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, formaldehydes, peanuts, dairy, soy, and any fragrance or dyes.

Baby Pibu has even put their products through additional testing so that they can ensure that even with the most sensitive of newborn’s skin their products aren’t irritating, and that their natural sunscreen is safe even in the harshest of suns rays.

Give the gift of skincare

The Newborn Essentials Skincare Kit is packaged as the perfect gift. Whether planning for a shower or celebrating the arrival of a new bundle of joy, any new parent will appreciate the luxury of this wonderfully designed and convenient kit. Parents get the chance to give each product Baby Pibu product a test run. Then, as Baby grows, order their favorites in larger sizes as they determine their newborn’s skincare needs. Gaining convenience and confidence is the best kind of gift any new parent can receive!

All about the Britax B-Safe 35 Car Seat

Choosing a car seat is one of the more daunting of tasks when you’re expecting a new arrival. When I was pregnant with our first baby, I did everything I could to try to find out which car seat was best — aimlessly walking down the aisles of my local baby store, scouring the Internet for safety reviews, and compiling research in an effort to choose the perfect car seat. Fortunately, I found that all my investigative efforts (which at some point rivaled that of a seasoned CSI detective) kept pointing me to Britax.

Now years later, as we are awaiting baby number three, I knew exactly what to choose — the Britax B-Safe 35. This sleek car seat hits all the marks, and then some, for reassuring the on-the-go parent that their new little one is riding around in first class style and safety.

Have you heard about the recent Britax B-Safe 35 handle recall? Read more about the details and how to see if your Britax is included on the Britax website.

See the Safety Features of the Britax B-Safe 35

It’s all in the details

The Britax B-Safe 35 is top of the line in rear-facing car seats for infants 4 to 35 pounds. The B-Safe 35 features Britax’s SafeCell Impact Protection in both the car seat and its base to give your baby the ultimate care in car seat safety technology. With its deep protective shell and steel-framed base specifically designed to absorb the impact Baby might experience from any crash forces (including side-impact crashes), you can rest assure that your baby will be protected with the latest and greatest safety technology on the market to date.

Installing the Britax B-Safe 35

All that safety technology isn’t worth anything unless the car seat itself is installed right. Car seats can be tricky to install, especially for a new parent, so it’s not shocking that the majority of car seats end up being installed improperly. Britax definitely took this into account when designing the B-Safe 35. We found installation to not only by easy, but that there were several features to assist in the ease of making sure we can protect our baby with just a few simple steps. The easy to pull-center adjusting strap and the centered guide along the side of the base were just a couple of the features included to help give us the peace of mind that we needed to know that our baby will be safe and sound riding around town.

NEW B-Warm Car Seat Cover from Britax

Bundle up Baby

One of the biggest challenges for any parent having a new baby in winter is how to keep Baby warm while on the go. Fortunately, long gone are the days of having to tuck multiple blankets around your precious newborn (that inevitably will get kicked off in a matter of minutes) or having to throw a blanket over the top of the car seat in order to try to combat the elements. The Britax B-Warm Car Seat Cover allows the modern parent to keep Baby warm with the simple zip of a zipper. Without the hassle of worrying if anything will fall off, get lost, or constantly need to be adjusted, the B-Warm Cover is, hands down, one of our favorite winter accessories.

Don’t miss these winter travel safety tips from our friends at Britax!

Best Products for Keeping Baby Warm

The Britax B-Warm Cover is super easy to install on your B-Safe car seat. With just a quick stretch around the car seat, the insulted cover is set in place within a matter of seconds and you are ready to head out the door, reassured that your baby is warm and comfortable with in their seat.

NEW from Britax: B-Warm Car Seat Cover

Keeping Baby Warm in Winter with Britax

The Britax B-Warm Cover features also features convenient flip-up sides with a zippered snap enclosure that allows for quick and easy temperature adjustments. The cover also helps repel moisture, which is especially important when battling the varying elements of Mother Nature during winter.

Knowing that baby will be cozy, warm, and dry during travel to and from one place to the next is just the reassurance any busy parent on the go needs.

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.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the fabulous 2013 PLUSH Show, which is a baby and toddler show featuring products and vendors geared towards eco-conscious trend-setting parents. And it wasn’t just fun and games for the parents in attendance. Disney was a Platinum sponsor this year, so there were tons of fun Disney activities for the kids all themed around Winnie the Pooh, including several storytimes, coloring stations, and the most adorable Winnie the Pooh Lego station (my daughter’s particular favorite.) Celebs at the event included hosts Lisa Rinna and Jason Kennedy (E! News), Garcelle Beauvais (“Franklin & Bash”) and Kathryn Morris (“Cold Case”), just to name a few.

There were too many vendors at the event to list all of them here. But I loved that it ranged from big name brands I was already familiar with like Britax and Ergo, to smaller family-owned businesses that I was thrilled to be able to discover like LadyBim and Kira. So here’s a quick roundup of some of my favorite products I saw at the show.

Green Point Brands teethers – You might have seen these in your local Whole Foods or baby boutique, but Green Point Brands just released a new collection of adorable, organic, and natural teethers that can be frozen, knawed on, and played with . They’re all BPA, phtalate-free and super adorable. And I got a sneak peek at a new product they’re still tinkering with – and I can’t wait!

Bump Nest maternity pillow – Move over Snoogles and Boppys (seriously, neither of these helped me at all the last pregnancy,) there’s a new maternity pillow in town and it’s as stylish as it is comfortable. Bump Nest, a brand spankin’ new company has just released this most awesome pillow, which unlike the other popular ones on the market is filled with individual beads so that the pillow molds to your body (I always got neck cricks with my Snoogle). Not to mention the non-kiddie like cover options they have that I just loved! It’s currently so new, it’s only sold on Amazon or through their site.

I Am Mixed book – Actress Garcelle Beauvais is also an author! She wrote this amazing children’s book, “I Am Mixed” which is the story of two multi-ethnic children who learn to appreciate and enjoy the best of both worlds. I love this especially since my daughter is mixed race and there’s not very many books that address this.

MD Moms sunscreen towelettes – Hate smearing sunscreen all over your kids and attempting to blend it in before they wiggle away? Well stress no more, with these awesome sunscreen towelettes. You just wipe them on your child (or yourself) just as your would a wipe, and voila, sun protection galore! Definitely one of those “why didn’t I think of that” products.

Pearhead – We all know Pearhead for their adorable albums, frames, and belly molding kits, but this too-cute-for-words 12-month frame had me drooling with desire.

Glob natural paints – I’m always on the lookout for more natural alternatives for common children’s products, and this paint made entirely from fruits and vegetables did not disappoint. It was such a hit that my daughter couldn’t stop painting with it and literally had to be dragged away.

Diono Radian RXT – I’d heard about that this Diono convertible carseat was one that was good for cars with limited space, and I was even more impressed when I learned that you can use it from infancy to booster, making it the only car seat you would ever need! Once your child hits the appropriate weight/height limits, it converts to a booster seat – genius!  It’s so space saving that you can fit three side-by-side in the back row with no problems. It’s also the only car seat on the market with a steel frame, making it extra sturdy.

Bloom Angel clothes/accessories – This is another brand brand new start-up run out of SoCal that I was so excited to find. They make the most incredible vintage-looking clothes for baby and toddler girls, not to mention gorgeous satin boys and other hair accessories that I just couldn’t resist getting for Little Miss. I really hope this company makes it so I still have access to their delicious goodies!

Simple Wishes pumping bra – We all know the old Simple Wishes hands-free pumping bra – it’s a lifesaver, but not exactly the cutest thing around. Well they’ve heard all our pleas. and just come out with this functional yet stylish bra that can be worn under clothes, and still has the openings (hidden away of course) to hold the flanges in place while pumping. It’s ideal for working moms who have to pump at the office, but don’t want to drag along the giant velcro contraption. It also has extra extended hooks, so that it can double as a maternity bra beforehand! So handy! It’s so new it’s not yet on the market, but keep an eye out mamas!

Congratulations to Addison she won the Diaper bag & A + D Ointment Giveaway!
Her 3 words to descirbe the first year of motherhood….Unexpected, adventurous, priceless 

There is nothing worse than red irritated little buns.  Been making mom’s cringe for centuries.
Recently, this adorable little man woke up with his own case of red irritated little buns, and I tried another name brand products on him with no luck.  During the next diaper change, I applied A+D Ointment and whoala, red buns no more!  What mom doesn’t like that?
Added bonus, its goes on super smooth and not caked on your hand and fingers when you’re finished applying it.
If you’re looking for a diaper cream that will do the trick, I highly recommend A+D ointment to treat it.
What may not be widely known is that A+D also has a “Preventative” Ointment as well.  Did you know that it can be applied at each diaper change to help prevent diaper rash?  Umm… love that!  Also, it can be used on all kinds of other things like minor cuts, scrapes and soars.  It is made up of vitamins A and vitamin D… (go figured with a name like “A+D”) and definitely does the trick!  Always good to have some on hand!
Diaper Bag filled with goodies and A & D Ointment Giveaway!

A Fleurville BabyCenter branded diaper bag filled with prizes including:
Two tubes of A&D Cream
Swaddle Designs Receiving Blanket and Baby Burpies
BabyCenter book on Baby’s First Year
