The pediatrician-recommended Kinsa Smart Thermometer is the first-ever FDA-cleared, app-enabled thermometer. Get peace of mind when you need it most (Kinsa’s durable battery-free design doesn’t break or die) with 10-second, professionally accurate oral, under-arm or rectal readings. Interactive screens create a fun, engaging experience for adults and children alike, while Kinsa’s free app remembers symptoms and medications for each family member on your phone to share with another caregiver or doctor. Finally, Kinsa offers real-time expert medical guidance based on age, fever and symptoms so you know your best path to better health, right away.

Technology is amazing, isn't it?  With all the thermometers out there, this one really stood out with its sleek design, and ease of use.  I love that it can be used by the whole family, and keeps a record of babies temperature on the app.

Milestone Baby Cards

Milestone Baby Cards are 30 photo cards that you can use to capture your baby’s first year in weeks, months and memorable moments. Add a card to your baby pictures and you will never forget when your little one slept through the night, rolled over or said mama for the first time.

I wish I had these cards for Jack.  So often time flies by so fast, you forget to write down all of the important milestones.  These cards aren't only cute, but will definitely keep me on track to remember all of baby boys important firsts.  

Finn & Emma

Finn & Emma creates stylish clothes, and toys for your little one. Only the finest 100% organic cotton, eco friendly dyes, and all natural wood will do for your little munchkin, and they've got plenty. And on top of that, their garments and accessories are produced in fair trade settings that focus on social and economic independence for local people, women especially, working to provide for their families in a safe and fair environment.

I fell in love with this adorable gender neutral elephant print romper, with matching bibdana and blanket.  Finn & Emma carries some really beautiful wooden toys, and sleek and modern looking play sets that would look beautiful in your living room. 

Binxy Hammocks

Binxy cart hammocks quickly and easily clips onto most carts, hangs elevated so you have plenty of room for groceries, then simply rolls up to fit in your purse or diaper bag when finished. Most infant car seats sit snugly inside the Shopping Cart Hammock™ and can be secured using the included safety strap. Meets or exceeds all applicable safety standards. Product can be used from birth until a child can sit upright unassisted. 

I love the idea that you don't have to lug around your car seat, or have it take up extra room in the grocery cart.  This hammock hangs nice and high, with snaps that secure baby in, leaving you with plenty of room for your groceries.  

The Ollie Swaddle

Dubbed the Smart Swaddle, The Ollie Swaddle is made from a custom designed moisture-wicking material to help reduce the risk of overheating. It's custom fit allows for the swaddle to be individualized to meet the needs and size of each little one. The unique bottom opening makes for easy access for diaper changes.  One-size promotes ease with transitional stages.

I have heard so many amazing things about this swaddle, and am so excited to try it with baby boy.  This swaddle would make a perfect gift for a new mom, as it comes all ready to give in this adorable box. 

Freshly Picked Moccasins 

Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Since then the moccasins have gone through about six design changes. Each change has perfected the look and the fit of the soft-soled shoe. The moccasins you purchase today are durable, well designed, and most importantly: stay on your child’s foot.

We ordered a matching pair for Jack and baby brother, and can't wait to see them both in them!

Saranoni Luxury Blankets

Saranoni, a luxury blanket company, was started by in 2006 because they believe the first things your child will see, hold, touch and love should be things you love. So, they have sought to create blankets with sizes, textures, colors and patterns that are cherished by all. From the mini blanket (15×20 inches) that covers a newborn perfectly in the car seat to the adult throw blanket (60×80 inches) that can surround a whole family with its warmth, Saranoni seeks to provide snuggle-worthy blankets for all. 

One of the sweetest things about these blankets, is the option to personalize them with your baby's name.  We ordered the receiving blanket with Jacks name on it, and this adorable mini blanket, which will be the perfect size for baby boy.

Tubby Todd

Tubby Todd is all about good, clean fun for the whole family. Each and every bath product is made with 100% natural ingredients that are simple and safe. Tubby Todd was created with sensitive-skinned babies in mind, and each product works hard to nourish, hydrate, and gently soothe skin from head to toe. Tubby Todd bath products are powerful and impressively effective, but are gentle enough for even the tiniest newborns.

We had been using a popular organic bath soap line, but when I tried Tubby Todd, I was so impressed by how well it suds and how little you need to get baby clean.  Absolutely love the lavender vanilla scent, and it left Jacks hair really soft and noticeably shiny.

Beluga Baby Wraps

Beluga Baby Wraps specialize in bamboo baby wraps perfect for infants from birth to one year. Wear your baby close to you to promote bonding while leaving you hands free to get things done.  The fabric is incredibly soft, and I can't wait to try it out with baby boy, as I wore Jack in a wrap almost daily from birth to a year.
