Sprout Shell

When Baby Bug was born, Girlie Girl had just started preschool. And since DH only had 2 weeks of paternity leave, I found myself having to take Baby Bug with me when I dropped her older sister off at school. Of course, all of her classmates wanted to to see and touch the new baby and it was hard to keep them away.

Now with Baby #3 on the way and Baby Bug starting preschool, I thought I was going to be in the same situation . . . until I found Sprout Shell.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Sheri and Kirsten designed the Sprout Shell with both Baby and Mom in mind. The difference between the patent-pending Sprout Shell and anything else on the market is the over-the-handle design that creates an enclosure for the baby, protecting its entire body from the elements.

MY REVIEW

When I first opened the package, I was impressed by the way it was presented. The ribbon and gift tag made it perfect for gift giving. The next thing I noticed was the quality. Sprout Shell is made from 100% machine washable cotton to ensure that baby will be cool and comfortable.

What I really liked about Sprout Shell is the opening on the top where the car seat handle peeks through. I think it’s so much safer that I can grab the actual car seat handle itself rather than through the material. This way there’s no chance of it slipping from my hands. The opening is also large enough that an ample supply of air can get to baby and keep her comfortable.

This will be so perfect to keep Baby #3 protected from all the kiddies at Baby Bug’s school. I figure if she’s covered up, it would prevent them from wanting to touch her.

And talk about versatile! I can even use Sprout Shell as a nursing cover or shopping cart cover. With so many things I tend to stuff into my diaper bag, consolidation is key. With Sprout Shell I get three products in one!

Beibi Shoes Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #94: Melissa L!

Finding infant shoes is not hard. Finding infant shoes that are cute is a little harder. When shopping for infant shoes in the past, I’ve noticed that a lot of the ones they sell in stores are pretty basic and not really pretty. So when I found out about Beibi Shoes and saw their adorable designs, I was in love.

COMPANY DESCRIPTION

As parents of infants and toddlers, our inspiration for WeeSqueak shoes was watching our children in these shoes. We discovered these little gems while in China adopting our oldest daughter, Chloe. However, during the adopting of our youngest daughter, Ellie, we had the idea to bring some shoes back for our friend’s children. Our company, WeeSqueak, was born! We are fun parents, with fun shoes for fun kids! Wee Squeak donates 5% of our profits to Half the Sky and to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

MY REVIEW

We received a pair of Beibi Shoes in their Logan design and absolutely love it! This pink and yellow shoe has such great details that you just don’t see in other infant shoes. I especially liked the heart-shaped buckle and pink crystal flower. These small touches really add to the overall design and shows just how much thought was put into making each design.

I also liked the rubber outsoles of the shoes with it’s little gripper-like design. It’s color-coordinated with the overall look of the shoe and will really help steady baby when she starts walking. The inside of the shoe is soft and comfortable.

So, if you’re looking for a stylish yet comfy shoe for your child check out Beibi Shoes.

Stokke TrippTrapp Highchair

With the new baby on her way, we’ve been looking for the essential items she’ll be needing. The only problem is that I really can’t see spending money on baby furniture since this will DEFINITELY be our last child. So when I found out about Stokke’s TrippTrapp Highchair, I was in love. Why? It’s the highchair that grows with your child!

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Designed to provide the correct ergonomic support for your child when seated, TRIPP TRAPP enables your child to sit at the family table and interact with you and other family members. The unique adjustability of TRIPP TRAPP in both seat and footrest height and depth adapts to your child as they grow to ensure that your child sits comfortably at all times.

MY REVIEW

I was so excited when the box arrived! Unfortunately, DH was out of town at the time and he’s usually the one who puts everything together. However, because I was so anxious to check out my TrippTrapp I thought I would try to put it together myself. At first I was a little overwhelmed at all the pieces . . .

but once I read the directions I was able to assemble the chair in 10 minutes. That’s how easy it was! I was so proud of myself.

There are many adjustable slots to ensure that the seat and footrest are in just the right position for your child no matter how old they are. I initially set it up for baby just to see how it would look. I loved it! The chair is strong and sturdy and I have no reservations about putting my new baby in it. I know she will definitely be safe and comfortable.

But until then, I’ll be able to use it as a booster seat for Baby Bug. You see, our dining table chairs are a little too low for her. Most of the time she needs to eat while kneeling in order to see everyone. With the adjustable TrippTrapp, she can now sit comfortably with the rest of the family.

What I like best about TrippTrapp is that it fits right under our dining table. With other highchairs, I’ve always felt that my girls were so far away from everyone else. They looked so left out. I’ve always believed that if my kids felt like they were part of the family conversation, they would more likely be entertained and sit nicely. And if that’s not enough, it’s so pretty! I chose the pink one (of course) and the overall design is very modern and chic. Definitely a conversation piece when friends visit!

I’m so happy with my TrippTrapp! Not only did I get a stylish highchair but it’s something that we’ll make good use of for a very long time! Stop by Stokke today to check out this and other products they have for baby. You’ll be amazed!
