Style & Accessories
I absolutely adore watching my baby’s face as she tries new foods. Although feeding her is one of my favorite things, I’m not a big fan of the mess baby food leaves behind. Thankfully, The Cocoon Company provides stylish baby bibs perfect for every baby. Crafted from 100% Peruvian Cotton, these incredibly soft bibs are liquid repellent, antimicrobial, reversible, and safety tested. I’m not kidding when I say that these bibs make clean-up a breeze. They are so stylish and work so well so well that my baby wears The Cocoon Company’s bibs on top of almost every outfit. Another one of my favorite finds from The Cocoon Company are their Car Seat Swaddles. These soft Swaddles are perfect for keeping your baby warm in their carseats, strollers, bouncy seats, etc. Talk about the perfect functional and fashionable gifts for your little baby!
With cooler weather, it’s important to keep baby warm and safe. The Candide Luxury Baby wrap is a cozy sleeping bag for your baby. No need to worry about baby slipping out the blanket at night and getting cold, the wrap stays in place without any zippers or snaps. The Luxury Baby Wrap is soft and quilted, and has easy access for diaper changes. Three easy steps to wrap baby up and keep nice and warm on a cool night. The Candide Luxury Baby wrap is available in 3 unisex colors, so you can use it for all your babies!
You babe deserves a stylish spot to call their own! Madly Wish is just the place to make sure your baby’s bed is the perfect place for them. Whether you need to select a color scheme and order an entire bedding set or just pick up a few unique crib sheets, they have exactly what you need. My daughter loves hanging out on her Tribal Fusion Quilt. This handmade crib quilt is made of the most gorgeous 100% cotton fabric. I love that it is girly, but unique. It is not something you would find out on a regular day of shopping, you can tell at a glance that it is really something special. We spread this beautiful blanket out on the floor for her to play and explore on, when it is not in use it looks perfect thrown over the rocker in her bedroom. Make your baby’s room special with a little piece of perfection from Madly Wish.
When I think of kids around the world who won’t be getting gifts this year or needs cannot be met, I want to do something to help. Buying gifts from a one for one company like Rockin’ Baby allows me to shop for my kids and help those in need around the world! Anything you purchase from their adorable line of children’s clothing will also be donated to a child in need somewhere around the world. Sounds pretty good to me! My girls have been wearing their new Loungin’ Forest Print Sets non stop for about a week now, and I can honestly say that their quality is top notch. These pjs are made from the thickest, most comfy fabric I have ever seen! Give to your kids and someones else’s this year with Rockin’ Baby.
Give the gift of peace of mind this Holiday season with the Angelcare Digital Video, Movement, and Sound Monitor. Designed to help you be able to hear, see, and measure your baby’s movement, you can get a peaceful night’s rest knowing that your baby is in good hands. Unlike most video monitors, Angelcare comes with an under-the-mattress sensor pad that alerts you if no movement is felt after 20 seconds. On top of the incredible sensor pad, the video monitor has endless awesome features: a 2 way LCD screen, temperature display, night vision, zoom features, and a transportable parent unit. I absolutely adore this monitor – it’s extremely user friendly and allows me to keep an eye on my daughter around the clock. I would highly recommend this Angelcare Digital Video, Movement, and Sound Monitor to everyone this Holiday season.
Having a baby and being constantly on the go can be super tough! Make life a bit easier with the GoTo or GoTo 2-1. No need to worry about sitting your carseat on the floor or table, the GoTo puts baby up high and makes feeding and sleeping way easier. It also has a big storage area underneath for your baby bag. The GoTo 2-1 grows with your baby, going from car seat station to a lightweight high chair. The GoTo or GoTo 2-1 accommodate most infant carriers and are light and easy to set up and take with you wherever you go! You can pick either up at Target or Babies R Us.
I love giving my children practical gifts. Graco’s Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster is the perfect gift that can grow with your child. This car seat flawlessly transitions from a 5 point harness car seat, to a high back booster, to a backless booster. With excellent safety features such as its simply safe adjust harness system and side impact protection, Graco’s Tanzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster really is a must for every baby and toddler. Some of my other favorite features include the dual cup-holders, comfortable seat pads, machine washable features, and light weight design. What more could you ask for in a car seat? Graco’s Tranzitions 3-in-1 Harness Booster is available at Babies ‘R Us.
Give your baby a stylish ride that you will love as well! Not only does the City Mini by Baby Jogger look great, it truly functions like a dream! It is lightweight, compact, and nimble. Use one hand to lift a strap and the City Mini folds itself: simply and compactly. The seat reclines to near flat and it has a retractable weather cover for sheilding you baby from rain, wind, snow, or harsh sunlight. It has two peek-a-boo windows to let you keep a constant watch on your little one. The front wheel can swivel or lock depending on your travel needs. All of the best stroller features in one awesome package! Your baby will be comfortable and safe for all of your adventures together, just think of all the memories waiting to be made! You and your baby will adore your City Mini Stroller.

My husband and I really like to get gifts that are educational and fun for your nieces and nephews. Especially anything that helps with counting/math or science.

I feel like once I get out of a stage I totally forget it all. These are a great reminder of the best baby toys. Since I've got a new niece coming, I need to start shopping!

I love the car seat swaddle. They did not have these when my kids were younger and it would have been fantastic for our car rides.

I think you can never ever go wrong with a play kitchen. All four of my kids loved theirs, and my granddaughter loves hers too. :)

These are all great selections for your guide. I like the star turtle night light and the baby monitor that vibrates the mattress the best.
