Going Glass

Apr 02, 2011 | By
Glass bottles were all the rage...back in 1932! Soon they were replaced by their lighter, less expensive,  more durable plastic counterparts. Or were they?

Glass bottles were still sold and manufactured all throughout the world even after plastic bottles came to the market and seemly overtook homes of new mothers everywhere. Just when we all figured out which bottles did what, what plastics were good, which were bad and which liners our babies liked best science quickly showed us we are back to square one. Literally. We're back to traditional glass bottles.

Why? In recent years plastic has been put under the microscope. Besides getting a bad rap from environmentalists and good citizens everywhere for the damage it causes to our environment, it's been tested, retested and, tested some more for harmful chemicals. Studies have shown that harmful chemicals can leach out of the plastic when heated making the plastic baby bottle unsafe for your itty bitties.

In case you need a little more convincing, here's some additional reasons mother's everywhere are turning to glass bottles:

  • They keep contents warmer/colder longer than regular plastic bottles
  • They can be easily sterilized in the dishwasher or with boiling water
  • The glass does not absorb smells or tastes (so if you forget a milk  bottle lying around the house the the bottle won't smell like moldy milk once you clean it out!)
  • Glass bottles give off no after tastes like plastic bottles do.
  • They can last forever! Unless you break or chip them, there is no need to replace them.
That last point is a concern for a lot of mother's and may be the only reason preventing you from making the switch. While broken or chipped glass is a concern, it can be avoided. Our glass bottles come snug in a silicone shock-resistant sleeve that prevents them from breaking, even when dropped on concrete.

Don't believe us? Watch this!

Just Bag It!

Mar 24, 2011 | By
Have you had a chance to notice how much stuff you need for such a small person?! And once you get said stuff, where do you put it?

Your diaper bag will be your new best friend. Promise. (Okay, well maybe besides your new little addition!) Plain or patterned, cloth or leather, masculine or feminine, there are TONS of choices when you're selecting a diaper bag. It's important that the bag you choose has all the features you will want and need, so here's a breakdown of some of our favorite bag lines.

Amy Butler

You will not find a bigger bag than this! All your daily essentials and more will fit comfortably in our canvas/leather tote- complete with changing pad. Once your itty bitty grows out of the diaper bag stage, Amy Butler's bags are perfect to use as overnight totes, beach bags or carry on's. We all love double-duty products!

A second Amy Butler option is the cloth handle canvas tote. It's the same style and design as the leather handle tote featured above, except that you get a funky coordinating fabric on your handles. We love that the changing pad comes in a handy case that keeps it together and out of the way.

Skip Hop

Mom and Dad will both enjoy the sporty style and durability of the Skip Hop Via Messenger bag. One feature we love- the stroller strap. It's conveniently (and discretely) attached to the should strap and effortlessly clips off to wrap around your stroller handlebars. It's perfect for shopping trips when you need to save your stroller basket for fun purchases!!

skip hop bento bag
You get bang for your buck with the Skip Hop Bento Bag- part diaper bag, part lunch kit. The unisex design is ideal for parents with 1+ children. You can easily store your baby's bottles in the fully insulated side pockets and your toddler's snacks in the fully insulated bento kit that comes with the bag. The three plastic containers fit into the insulated bento bag and store away in a convenient pouch at the bottom of the bag.

The Bento Bag even has dual handles- one messenger strap or 2 shoulder straps with padded wrap-around. What will they think of next!

Petunia Pickle Bottom

Petunia Pickle Bottom is by far the most feminine diaper bag line out there. Their seasonal patterns, splashes of funky color and special touches, like embroidered patterns, set them apart from all the others. The Sashay Satchel bag (shown) carries like a purse or a backpack. Perfect for when your hands are full of little mischievous hands!

diaper bag tote
If you're children are a little older, of if you're just packing for a quick trip down the street it's safe to say you can take this snazzy little number. The Touring can be worn three different ways- as a small hobo, as a long-shoulder bag or strapped to the stroller with the Petunia Pickle Bottom stroller clips. And when you're done toting a diaper bag, how about using it as a purse? It's definitely cute enough!


Remember the "special touches" we mentioned? Here's an example of the embroidered patterns. Just a little something extra that enhances the style while still maintaining maximum durability and practicality.

The Boxy Backpack, besides being a great everyday diaper bag, has another special feature- the back of the bag zips down to reveal a fold-out padded changing mat. Say goodbye to public changing tables...and lots of germs! You can conveniently carry the boxy backpack over your shoulder or on your back. We think it would be great for Disney World...better plan a trip!


The Itty Bitty Bella Girls think this bag is divine. The Weekender, by Petunia Pickle Bottom is the perfect travel bag or bag for long days out. A changing mat and wipe case each have their own spot so you can quickly diaper change on the go. Like all the Petunia Pickle Bottom bags, this one is great for using after baby has grown up. Take it on weekend getaways with your special someone (after all, you deserve it!) or on the plane for far away vacations.

It's probably worth noting that all the diaper bags shown come with their own changing pad. More than likely it will get many, many (dare I say...many!) uses.

Good luck narrowing down your search. It's a tough choice!

MD Moms

Times are changing for the changing table. At least that what pediatrician moms Diane and JJ believe. And if you're sick of sneezing over baby powder, fighting with the diaper cream container, and oh yeah, packing a gazillion products in your diaper bag so that you're covered no matter what...then you believe it too.

After years of hearing the same skin-care complaints in their pediatric offices and years of raising little one's themselves, Diane and JJ finally put an end to lack luster infant skin care products- or at least offered up a better solution!

MD Moms combines a pediatrician's knowledge with a mother's instinct and wisdom to create a line of skin care products idea for baby's delicate skin.

MD Moms boasts...
  • Gentle, yet highly effective ingredients
  • Pure, natural ingredients
  • Hypoallergenic formula
  • Concentrated formulas- small does, big results
  • Protection from environmental damage
  • "Double-Duty" products
  • Easy, one-handed use
  • Modern aesthetics and design
  • Easily travels everywhere you do!

The cleansing towelettes keep baby clean from cheeks to cheeks! The alcohol-free blend of marine silk, vitamins E and B5, organic aloe and comfrey provides moisturizing and antioxidant benefits for you little ones. The ginger and chamomile in each wipe soothe and calm even the most irritated skin.


The gift set makes the perfect shower gift. The Moisturizing Balm, Soothing Bottom Relief and the Delicate Skin Comfort are the three basic products that will get you through almost anything!

The mixture of natural ingredients in the moisturizing balm are good enough to eat! The quick-absorbing, lightweight formula is ideal for maintaining the skin's natural moisture barrier. Shea butter, aloe, oat, avocado oil and other luxurious ingredients combine to make a lotion you will love using yourself. Don't worry, we won't tell!

Delicate Skin Comfort- Finally, a talc-free baby powder that will not have you sneezing and leaving a mess each time you use it! The liquid formula goes on like a lotion, but then quickly transforms into a silky dry powder to keep even the littlest of crevices dry and cool.

Diaper rash. Every baby gets it, nobody likes it. The Soothing Bottom Relief- a lightweight lotion that smooths on white then turns clear to protect, soothe, heal and moisturize little baby bottoms- will clear up even the worst case. No more diaper rash. Sound good? We thought so!


Kiss cradle cap goodbye! MD Moms Gentle Scalp Rub helps brush away flakes and scales that are associated with cradle cap. It's mild enough for everyday use to leave baby's scalp and hair clean, moisturized and soft.


As the summer sun starts to show it's face don't forget to protect both you and your baby. Skip the messy lotions that make for teary eyes and sticky skin. Instead give MD Moms Babysafe Sunscreen Towelettes a chance. You won't be disappointed! Don't worry about getting the right amount either- each towelette has enough sunscreen to cover the average 2 year old from head-to-toe.

Pop into Itty Bitty Bella to try all of the MD Moms products. Don't forget to stock the diaper bag and the nursery!

UPPAbaby Strollers

Mar 14, 2011 | By
We now know strollers. We have tested stroller after stroller to make sure that we were providing you with the best, the safest, the latest and the greatest.

We know you're bombarded with dozens of options when it comes time to select a stroller, so we took it upon ourselves to do the homework for you. What we found? UPPAbaby. What makes it different, you ask? The details.

uppa stroller
Vista Mica (silver) shown with chassis, stroller seat and bassinet.

One package. One purchase. Everything you need. When you purchase the UPPAbaby Vista stroller system everything you need to start comes in one convenient package- the stroller frame (or chassis), the stroller seat w/ bumper bar, the bassinet w/ cover, and the stroller basket. Described as "part sports car, part sports utility-vehicle", UPPAbaby Vista is built for luxury and performance- for both the urban jungle and rugged country streets.

Vista is built to adapt to several different infant seats including Peg Perego, Chicco, Maxi-Cosi and Graco. A simple infant seat adapter (by UPPAbaby) suited to your particular infant seat takes your infant from vehicle to stroller without missing a beat.

uppa gear
Vista Cole (slate blue) with bassinet.

If you (or your baby) prefers, you can begin placing your infant in the bassinet from birth. Because they are laying flat  you don't need to worry about the age/weight restrictions of a typical stroller seat. Comfy, cozy and safe, your itty bitty will be content  in the stroller during any excursion.


Vista Denny (red) with stroller seat and sunshade pulled down.

From 3 months old until 50lbs your child can enjoy the stroller seat facing either you or the world. With one click the stroller seat snaps out of the frame and rotates 180 degrees. The built-in sun shade is an added plus. With one pull it extends beyond the visor to protect your child from the suns' rays. When not in use it hides out sight tucked against the visor.

The chassis is designed to hold both the stroller seat and bassinet at a higher elevation than a traditional stroller. This allows for you to be closer to your child and for your child to get a better look at the world around them. 

Speaking of height, if you and your spouse happen to be different heights (which let's face it, are most couples are!) the handle bar adjusts with just one click. It's just another UPPAbaby detail that will leave you wondering how you ever lived without it!


UPPAbaby Denny (red) shown with both the Rumble Seat and Piggy Back.

Thinking of growing your family? The UPPAbaby stroller effortlessly goes from 1 child to 3 children with 2 easy attachments. Each sold separately, you can purchase each seat as you need it and keep it attached only when in use. No more worrying that your stroller will be outdated or out of style by the time baby #2 (or even #3, 4, or 5!) comes- UPPAbaby promises to be one investment you will not regret!

In case you need some more convincing, stop by Itty Bitty Bella and we'll show you just how much this stroller can do. You can take it for a test drive, look at all the 2011 colors and learn about even more of it's features- snack tray, insured travel case, cup holders, fabric swaps to update your look, locking rear wheels, locking front wheels (for jogging!)...the list goes on!!



Until you get in to see us, check out our video. We showcase some of our favorite features...but trust us when we say we couldn't show everything! UPPAbaby has so much to offer you really need to get out and see it for yourself.

See you soon!
