The Babymoov Anti-UV Tent is the perfect way to keep your baby cool and shaded when you’re outdoors. The top portion of the tent is made with an anti-UV material that blocks up to 99% of UVA and UVB rays keeping Baby’s sensitive skin safe from the sun. It measures a roomy, but not overly huge, 38.5″ x 30.5″ x 33″. The front of the tent has mosquito netting that can either be closed with the attached Velcro, or swept and tied to the side, completely out of the way. There is also a netted rear window that allows for a great breeze and viewing.

Summer Must-Have: Babymoov Anti-UV Tent

This adorable little tent weighs less than 3 pounds and folds flat, so toting it around can’t be any easier. Set up is a cinch since it practically pops up on its own once removed from its handy carrying case. The case also has a little pocket where you will find four tent stakes to keep your little lightweight tent from blowing away. The frame of the tent is made up of bendable wires  (think car window sun shade) and folds up just the same. My favorite was how easy it was to clean it up when we were done with it — just pick it up and shake it out!

The only thing I had a little trouble with was refolding it, so back to the internet I went to watch the video a few times. I found there is a trick to it, but once you get it it’s pretty simple. My advice: Hold it upside down, bring the sides together — one side over the other like a burrito — and shove to the floor. It’s just that easy. But, just in case you still are having some trouble, here’s a video of how the fold is done according to Babymoov:

You can’t go far these days without someone touting the benefits of essential oils for just about everything you can think of. From migraines to allergies, there’s an oil for whatever ails you. But what about babies? Many oils can be too strong for babies unless formulated and mixed in such a way to make it safe for little senses. More and more companies are taking the worry and guess work out of essential oils, allowing your babies to reap the benefits in safe and absolutely adorable ways.

The Wunders

1. Slumber Belly Bunny by The Wunders

For you it’s peace of mind that your baby is enjoying all of the benefits of essential oil in a portable and safe way, for baby it’s a soft and adorable new buddy. The Slumber Belly Bunny is a soft and cuddily stuffed toy that hides an interchangeable scent pouch within it’s belly. In seconds you can go from lavender for sleep to eucalyptus for cough and colds.

Recently the baby was so sick but, we as moms know, life still goes on. I was able to essentially take an oil diffuser with me, from grocery cart to the car seat, she just hung on to this little eucalyptus filled guy which helped keep her breathing clear, even when on the go. Now that we’re all healthy again, we keep it full of lavender for crib snuggling and naps away from home. The Slumber Belly Bunny comes with a bottle of lavender, eucalyptus sold separately. (Slumber Belly Bunny, $30)

Babymoov 2

2. Babymoov Digital Humidifier and Diffuser

Having kids means having at least one humidifier stashed away somewhere for when kindergarten germs get the best of you. Just after Christmas the plague hit our house hard,  so I was definitely able to put the new Babymoov Digital Humidifier and Diffuser through its paces. (At one point I had it running almost 24 hours a day for 6 days). I loved the digital screen that allowed me to set the level of humidity to whatever I needed and a timer to change the humidity level automatically at a set time.

The top has a round 360-degree rotating nozzle, which housed a tiny cup for oil diffusing. Since this isn’t a true diffuser you’re not going to get the oil strength you would from one, however I found it to be just fine and served the purpose well. You’re also not obligated to put oil in it since the little cup is removable when not needed. Rounding out all of these great features, this humidifier is also super quiet, has a huge water reservoir, shuts itself off when the water runs out and has two different colored nightlight (red and blue). (Babymoov Digital Humidifier and Diffuser, $100)

Oilology

3. Oilogic Essential Oil Care

Placing oil directly on babies sensitive skin is definitely a no-no unless, of course, within the right oil-to-carrier oil mixture. But how do you know if you’ve gotten it right? Thankfully two moms from Texas have taken the guess work and fear out of essential oils by creating an entire line of safe, pre-mixed oils, lotions and vapor baths. These little miracle mixes have quickly become a staple in my home, warding off everything from sleepless nights for the baby to monsters and nightmares for my five-year-old. And now my oldest even asks for a dab of Relax & Calm before school everyday. The pre-mixed roller balls come in Bug Bites & Itches, Itchy Eyes & Sneezes, Ouchies & BooBoos, Relax & Calm, Slumber & Sleep and Stuffy Nose & Cough. The bath vapors come in Stuffy Nose & Cough and Slumber & Sleep, each with cordinating lotions. (Oilogic Essential Oil Care, $10)

Young Living

4. Dino Land Ultrasonic Diffuser by Young Living

Diffusing oils in your home does everything from heightening your mood to helping you sleep to even warding off illness and easing pain, kids included. Diffusers in my children’s room are essential and this one from Young Living is just too cute. The dinosaur scene is just a cover which makes it interchangeable with other designs from Young Living, great for moving room to room.  Other features include six different volcanic “eruption” settings and continuous or intermittent (10 minutes on/10 minutes off) setting with automatic shutoff. (Dino Land Diffuser available through a Young Living representative, $120)

Diffuser Necklaces 004

5. YooHoo Children’s Essential Oil Diffuser Necklace by Crunchy Fox

Just because they aren’t home doesn’t mean kids can’t reap the benefits of essential oils. These adorable owl necklaces I found on Etsy are just the thing for utilizing essential oils everyday. Today it may be test day where a little juniper berry is needed, or maybe she’s been battling headaches and it’s peppermint to the rescue. Whatever the case, these cute little owls will do the trick, also available in sports themes and unisex styles. (YooHoo Essential Oil Necklaces, $15)

Prepping Baby's First Solid Foods

Beginning solid foods is an exciting time for mamas and babies alike. Funny faces, eager babies, and big messes! My little lady, Everly, is just about 6-months-old, which means we’ll be starting solid foods soon and while she has no idea of what’s to come, I’m getting prepped, starting with stocking up our homemade baby food supply.

Tips & Tricks for Prepping Baby Food

Baby food prep made easy… and tasty!

I tried making my own purées with my first child, but never developed a good routine to stay ahead of her appetite. It’s amazing how much food you go through, even though they hardly seem to actually be eating more than a spoonful or two! This time, I decided to get a jump start on prepping some homemade baby foods with my new secret weapon, the Babymoov Nutribaby.

I started by making a few basic veggie purées, as well as a handful of more complex recipes with inspiration from the Babymoov app on my iPhone. I think Everly is really going to love her mixed vegetable soup… and I might even get her big sis to have a taste, too!

preparing for baby's first foods

An all-in-one baby food machine

It was so easy to steam, blend, and freeze the purées in individual portions using the Nutribaby. I love that the system is all in one, so I didn’t have to purchase separate devices to steam and to blend her food, but I can still cook the ingredients separately, thanks to the two individual baskets — the Nutribaby does it all.

Another major feature about the Nutribaby is that we can use it both before and after our short-lived baby food months. Before she starts eating, I can use it to sterilize and warm her baby food jars. And, once we’re out of the baby food stage, I can use it to prep dinner for the girls (and us!), to steam whole veggies as a healthy side for dinner or to whip up a smoothie in the morning.

April Baby Bundle Giveaway

It’s a new month and a new Baby Bundle Giveaway to kick us off! This month, we’re featuring some favorite picks for Baby from Babymoov, a company who is innovative, modern and chic, offering products that fit perfectly into your life as a mom, while still maintaining their style.

Babymoov 0 Emission Camera LG Savvy Sassy Moms

Zero Emission Baby Camera

Babymoov is the first brand to take into consideration the potential health impacts of electromagnetic waves. With the arrival of the Zero Emission Baby Camera, Babymoov launches a worldwide innovation: the first connected video camera that completely eliminates electromagnetic waves from the baby’s room.

The secret to this worldwide innovation is the use of PLC (Power Line Communication) technology. With this system, waves are carried from the baby’s room through the home’s electrical wiring to another room in the house. Parents simply plug their camera’s adapter into an electrical outlet in the baby’s room and connect a second adapter to the home’s modem. The camera sends the signal to the modem, which then connects the camera via WiFi to any authorized device. The camera’s patent-pending acrylic mount enables the camera to be used on any crib frame.

Key Features

Unlimited Range via WiFi
Connects to intuitive and complete application for iOS and Android devices
Walkie Talkie functionality
High-resolution image & video and crystal clear audio
Multi-users – connects up to 4 users simultaneously
Lullabies
Multiple Alerts for temperature, motion detection
Night Light
Night Vision
Temperature Sensor
Universal attachment to connect to any crib or bed frame

MSRP: $199.99
Zero Emissions Baby Camera

U.S. Arrival: Late April 2015
Optional WiFi Key (for nights away from home): $19.90
Optional Receiver (to watch baby continuously without using phone or tablet): $99.90

Babymoov Nutribaby Cherry Savvy Sassy Moms
Nutribaby Food Processor – Cherry

The flagship of the company’s U.S. launch is Babymoov’s award-winning Nutribaby Food Processor, a five-in-one tool that warms, sterilizes, defrosts, steams and blends and features a digital screen for easy set-up of the functions. The Nutribaby guarantees healthy and tasty cuisine by giving parents the ability to cook different ingredients, each in its optimal cooking time, at the same time. With the Nutribaby’s two cooking baskets, parents simply start with the foods that need to cook the longest then add the other ingredients to the second basket once their correct cooking time is left in the cycle. Cooking foods separately and for the correct amount of time ensures that baby benefits from all of the foods’ vitamins and flavors.

The appliance’s detachable blender and cooking units offer the largest capacities on the market, 6.25-cups blending and 3.75-cups steaming, to help busy moms easily prepare several meals at once or prepare one delicious meal for multiple children. All five functions of the Nutribaby are digitally controlled by the LCD display that guides the user in an intuitive way eliminating the need to constantly refer to the manual or measure water. Parents simply fill the reservoir, set the cooking time and wait for the cycle to complete.

Key differences between the Nutribaby Food Processer and other baby food makers on the market:

Two Baskets: Separate baskets allow parents to cook food separately. Separate cooking ensures food keeps its vitamins and flavors. With standard food processors, all the ingredients are cooked together and for the same amount of time.

Can also be used from birth to warm bottles and jars and sterilize bottles and accessories.

Set cooking time by minute, not water level, using a digital screen. Better ability to control cooking time helps ensure that veggies and protein retain their vitamins and flavors.

Huge Capacity: 6.25 cups food processing/blending; 3.75 cups steaming. The capacity allows parents to make multiple meals at once. (Beaba: 1 cup blending; Baby Brezza: 2.5 cups blending; SmartPlanet: 2.5 cups blending; 2 cups steaming)

MSRP: $119.99
Nutribaby Food Processor

Turbo Steam Sterilizer

Babymoov’s Turbo Steam Electric Sterilizer is the first 2-in-1 sterilizer that offers parents the cleaning efficiency of a sterilizer and the convenience of a bottle drying rack. The sterilizer’s patent-pending turbo steam system and long, removable steaming arms direct steam at the core of bottles for efficient sterilization of the entire bottle.

The Turbo Steam Sterilizer accommodates all types of bottles and its central structure allows it to sterilize up to six bottles, inside and out, in 10 minutes. The universal system’s removable arms modulate the space to sterilize other types of products such as breast pump shields and jars.

Like all Babymoov products, the Turbo Steam Sterilizer is intuitively designed, easy to use and backed by a lifetime warranty. Step by step instructions and a measuring cup are included. An alarm sounds when the cycle is complete and the system’s automatic shutdown prevents unnecessary energy consumption.
