Since the baby shower giveaway, I have found some other great baby products I want to mention. Isn't online shopping fun :)
Collin uses a cuski for his bedtime woobie. It is made from soft Bamboo yarn that absorbs mom's smell - thus comforting babies when they are alone. It looks a little strange, but Collin seems drawn to the simple lines and the ease of grabbing the fabric. Research indicates that babies with comforters are more secure apart from their mothers, so I wanted to introduce something that would last the duration. You can order them directly from Europe here, or find a USA retailer here.
Collin LOVES his Sophie the Giraffe so much, I went looking for similar products. The Chan Pie Gnon toys are from the same French company, just a little more funky of a style. I am planning on slipping one of these into Collin's Christmas stocking this year.
My little man is quite the trendsetter in his pediped shoes. Not only are they adorable, they are handcrafted with soft-soled leather. I know, I know, he isn't exactly walking in them, but they are super comfy and they stay on. I will be getting him some new ones when he does start walking. I am thinking of picking these up for Lydia for Fall. - Actually, I want them for me, but they don't come in my size.
Lately I have been sporting a Kokopax Ring tote. It is my "working mom" diaper bag. I'm not a working mom, per sa, but I do have business obligations, and carrying in my huge diaper bag is not exactly chic. The ring tote has everything you want from a diaper bag, yet is disguised as a professional bag. Check out the photo of the inside of mine. Diapers, wipes, nursing cover, sippy cup, blanket - everything fits, along with any "business material" I may need to take along. The cool thing is you can get these bags to match the famous Kokopax carriers or even a baby sun hat. I don't have one of those carriers yet, but a girl can dream. Use
Lydia had eczema as a baby, so I have tried to take extra precautions with Collin. I traded in my crib sheets for Natural Mat 100% Organic Cotton Bedding, handmade in England. I love the crisp feel of the fabric and the lovely natural color. Collin skin doesn't seem to be having any troubles. You can now get this bedding in the US!

Ok, this isn't a baby product exactly, but I love this zippered pouch from the Pleated Poppy. It would be perfect to keep my stuff (make-up, gum, keys) together so I can move them from my diaper bag to my regular purses. And it is orange and blue. :)
Just a few of my favorites. I think I will put the baby products on hold for a bit. I need to start my search for the perfect....Christmas gifts!
