Babu Maternity



I find the designs on Babu’s maternity apparel awfully irresistible. They are whimsical and just make you feel good when you may not feel your best during your pregnancy. It's nice to see such hip and fashionable tees for mommies-to-be, rather than the old tent shirts women used to wear way back when.

I especially adore the “Bun in the Oven” tee. Their tees are snug so you can welcome your blossoming belly rather than try to hide its beauty. Visit Babu’s website to see more of their witty designs.

What did Jennifer Garner get at her baby shower?



At Jennifer Garner's baby shower this past weekend she was given bibs and burp cloths from Baby Sophia Gifts! She received two Signature bibs (in pink toile and bright flowers) and two burp cloths (in green/pink dots and hot pink dots).

They know the name but their lips are sealed! Visit babysophiagifts.com today to find out the details!

Isa Booties


Maybe it's the colors, or the styles, or the fact that I can't seem to pull myself away from all things little and baby-themed now that I am pregnant with Baby #3. Whatever the reason, I immediately put Isa Booties www.isabooties.com on my 'Must-Have' List.

There are other baby booty company's out there, but none offer the style and features that Isa Booties does, such as:
~Ultrasuede® fabric- super soft and breathable
~Toughtek® fabric- an incredible grip fabric
~Will not scuff
~Color safe and stain-resistant
~Will hold shape after machine-washing and drying
~Maintain non-skid properties after continuous wear and washings
~Mimics barefoot walking
~100% animal-product free
Another selling point to add is that Toughtek® is the same grip fabric used in the booties worn by search and rescue dogs because it is nearly impenetrable by things such as broken glass, nails and other sharp debris.
Priced at $24 and sizes ranging from 3-6 months up to 12-18 months, Isa Booties can be purchased directly from www.isabooties.com or use their Store Locator.

Hooter Hiders AKA Bebe Au Lait Nursing Covers


For all you nursing moms you can relate...We've all been there, trying to be discreet while feeding baby. Sometimes its not easy, I used to use a plain old receiving blanket and struggle to keep things covered up. Well struggle no more Bebe Au Lait (formally known as Hooter Hiders) are SUPER Hip & stylish.

I was impressed to learn that the Bebe Au Lait serves mainy purposes: It can be a light blanket in a pinch. It can be draped across the front of the stroller so baby is protected from the sun if the sunshade isn't offering enough coverage. Mom can also use it to protect baby from the sun while using a front carrier - the lightweight fabric keeps baby from getting too warm. The terry cloth panel is perfect for cleaning up spit ups, drools, and other baby-related oopsies.

Check out the fabric selection...Really Pretty

Chiarakruza Maternity Tee worn by Jen Garner


Chiarakruza maternity wear allows you to be comfortable and stylish at the same time. Started by a Mom just like us, who had her first pregnancy in 2000. Unhappy with the maternity fashions back then (I can totally relate...Just recently looking at my maternity pics from back then my sis said, "God look what you are wearing") she refused to shop at maternity stores...Instead shopped at regular stores and got creative when it came to altering her clothes.

After her pregnancy she decided to forgo her own clothing line. With no prior design experience and $10,000 she set out to start chiarakruza(named after her daughter) Her unique designs were quickly picked up by babystyle, and are sported by celebs such as Britney Spears, Jen Garner,Cate Blanchett, Denise Richards, and Christine Taylor. Visit chiarakruza.com where you won't lose your sense of style just because you're pregnant!

Mama Mio



Here’s something for my pregnancy wish list. It’s a new skincare line called Mama Mio, for expecting women created by three friends in London with over ten years of skincare experience and seven kids between them. A fabulous kit that would make an ideal gift is Mama Mio’s BBB Kit. BBB stands for Beaudacious, Bountiful, and Bouncy (or Boobs, Bellies, and Bottoms). This amazing starter kit includes a bottle of their famous Tummy Rub that will aid with minimizing stretch marks and itches. There is also their Boob Tube, a firming bust treatment for a pregnant woman’s growing breasts. The third item is the Wonder Balm, which helps curb those annoying dry patches. Check out Mama Mio’s website to see more of their pampering products for mommies-to-be.
