Going Glass

Apr 02, 2011 | By Cari Hale
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!

Capture the Moment

Mar 31, 2011 | By Cari Hale
They're only young once...

It goes by so fast...

Where did the time go...

If I could only freeze time...

Do you find yourself muttering at least one of these ever-popular phrases these days? The time spent with your babies and children seem to last but an instant, and wouldn't it be great if you could capture those moments and preserve your favorite memories for a lifetime.

Thanks to our technology savvy era, you can use your digital camera or even your phone to take hundreds of pictures a day (literally, if you wanted to!) of your favorite family moments whether big or small.


Those precious moments are better kept out on display than stored deep in the computer or buried in a keepsake box. They are better kept out where you can see them, memorize them and relive them each time you pass them in the hall or notice them in a bedroom.


You can never have too many memories. Vacations, a trip to the park or a lazy day spent at home all deserve a place in your memory, a spot on your wall.  Go ahead and group frames together and college different moments. Try placing a row of frames in your hallway with a family picture for each year so you can look back and see how you've grown and changed.


Frames make great shower gifts too, especially frames that are full of style and charm. How wonderful would it be for baby to look back 20, 30, or 40 years down the road and have the picture and frame from their nursery.  What a great way to capture the moment and freeze time!

Zoo Bibs

Mar 28, 2011 | By Cari Hale
What do you do when you're out of the house and your baby or toddler make a mess of their bib? Surely you won't throw it in the diaper bag and risk getting mashed peas all over everything else...would you?

Skip*Hop's creative minds came together to solve this very dilemma. Their newest product, the  Zoo Bib tucks away into itself so you can hide away messes until you're able to clean them up.

There's no extra cases to carry and  no special techniques to master. Here, see for yourself!



Choose from the adorable owl, monkey or dog Zoo Bib... they even coordinate with the Skip*Hop plate/bowl sets as well as the backpacks and lunch boxes.

Oh, and one last thing- they're machine washable, too! Who would have thought...

Just Bag It!

Mar 24, 2011 | By Cari Hale
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!
