When your baby first comes home from the hospital often parents keep them close in a bassinet. Both of my boys stayed in the bassinet until they were three months old and then just did naps in their crib for the next few weeks. For this reason we had ‘sleeping stations’ in the form of play yards and bassinets set up in various rooms to make nap time more convenient. To help reduce with the amount of gear you have to buy for your baby, Oeuf NYC has created the Fawn crib, which will grow with your child.
With parenthood comes a lot of gear. Much of which has one purpose – for a very short time. Knowing this, Spanish company Guum created their mini bed for infants birth to 6 months but then added some additional pieces that allows it to live on for much longer in your home.
Most new parents will confess that they want their baby to be close in the middle of the night. In fact, many newborns don’t sleep in their cribs until they are a few months old because they often bunk in the same room with mom and dad. Because your child should have their own bed, SnuzPod’s 3 in 1 Bedside Crib is a convenient new option for parents who want to ensure their baby is safe – but close.
For parents who are looking for modern, charming furniture for their baby, the Nesta Bassinet is the perfect solution. Created by new mom Heidi Schaefer, a NYC mom who needed a sleeping solution that fit her tiny apartment, the Bassinet served as her son’s sleeping space for 9 months.
While some parents don’t mind swings, bassinets and bouncers sprinkled throughout their house, others like sophisticated modern pieces that blend in with their design. Designer Lana Agiyan has clearly heeded the call and created a beautiful modern bed for newborns to dream in.
I’m a big fan of Mamas & Papas products. Every one that I’ve tried offers superb features and design with an impeccable attention to the tiniest of details. The Mylo is no exception. This stroller, the top of the Mamas & Papas stroller line, offers everything you could think of in a very full featured stroller and a bit more. As soon as you look at it you’ll know that it’s special. It’s very unique, very stylish and modern form makes that very clear.
Modern family gear company Stokke® has announced their newest addition to their newborn collection. The Bounce ‘n’ Sleep is a unique, new, flexible daybed and bouncer concept that changes function depending on your baby’s needs.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Burlington Basket Company,, today announced a voluntary recall of about 500,000 bassinets because the the cross-bracing rails, if not fully locked into position, can collapse causing the infant to fall to the floor or fall within the bassinet and suffer injuries.
