Sponsored Post – Picking the best gift for your little ones is always a hard decision to make. You always bargain between choosing a flashy gift that no one would think of buying or a more useful gift that will most probably be what others will think of buying. Nevertheless, you need to pick which one to give. Maybe I can give you a few tips on what type of gift to buy for your special bundle of joy.
Buying the right newborn baby gifts require three basic factors. First is the most obvious one which is the gender of the baby. Next is the type of family lifestyle they are born into. Finally, we have the “what do the parents need?” question. Knowing these can trim down your possible choices for a gift for your new family member.
Some may think that buying for babies is a very hard task. But in reality, it is easy as long as you think of these main factors before you go shopping:
Yes, know if it is a boy or a girl before buying. But my suggestion is to go with unisex colors and style. Buy items with the shade of yellow, green, white, orange and the likes. The reason I suggested this is because it is a safe choice, especially if you still don’t know the gender of the baby. At the same time, it can be used in the future if ever the family decided to have another child, regardless if it will be a boy or a girl.
The lifestyle of the family is a great basis of what gift to buy for the baby. For example, if the family likes to travel, they you can think of a gift that can be used during traveling like a portable milk warmer. Another example is if the family likes to go to the beach. You can buy a cute swimwear or even shades and hats.
Know how much you want to spend. Children’s things are more expensive than your regular items. All the more if we are talking about newborn items. Having a fixed budget can allow you to decide if you can manage to purchase a personalized and fancy gift or just go with cheaper yet useful ones.
It is always a good idea to add a touch of YOU in every gift you give. This also applies to newborn gifts as well. For example, if you are a funny person, you can customize onesies that has funny jokes printed on it. Or if you love flower prints, you can look for flower printed clothes. Use your imagination and give the gift your personal touch.
One of the things that we fail to consider when buying a gift is if the parents and the baby would need it. If you already know that they have a lot of feeding bottles, then opt to pick another gift instead. You can even ask the parents what they still need so that you can be assured that your gift will not go to waste.
A good way to give a gift for your little man is to use a sports themed present. It can be a set of clothes with different sports print on it like basketball, soccer, football and the likes. You can also give matching sporty printed booties and mittens along with it to complete the set.
You can also give stuffed toys that’s in a shape of different sport balls. Some examples are basketball, football, baseball and many more. You can even make it a combo with their matching stuffed baseball bat, basketball ring basically anything that you can imagine.
Cars are the most famous boy gifts that you can give. But the little guy needs to wait until he is a little older for him to play these toys. But little boys are sure suckers for cars.
Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures and boys love to learn about them. I have several nephews that all have one thing in common, dinosaur stuffed toys. It is a great way to also teach them the different types of dinosaurs, IF their fascination with these creatures are still with them as they grow up.
Dogs, Horses, Cats, you name it there will be a stuffed toy counterpart of them in the market. Having animal stuffed toys can also help introduce different animals and animal sounds to your little boy. Animal themes shirts and clothing is also an adorable gift to give. Imagine your little boy wearing a lion onesie or wrapping them up in a shark towel with its jaws for a hood.
Baby girls can have a wider variety of presents a compared to boys. It can be a wide range of choices from beautiful and elegant clothes to simple yet fashionable apparels. You can even pick a princess themed attire for them as well.
Pink is the perfect color for you little princess. Buy pink things from clothes to bottles. Accessorize using different shades of pink for clips, headbands, necklaces, earrings, the list goes on. You can even give pink boppy pillows, swaddles and other mommy-baby necessities as a gift.
If boys can dress up as cute animals then girls can dress up as beautiful princesses. From tutus to tiaras, and from shoes to gowns, you little girl will definitely be the bell of the ball with this gift.
One good thing about baby girls is that they can get all dolled up with accessories. From cute hair clips to adorable headbands, there is a wide option for you to pick with. You can even give them necklaces, earrings and bracelets to make them more chic looking.
If you are not the type of person to give common present like the ones that I mentioned beforehand, then maybe you can opt to buy some personalized newborn baby gifts for your little one. You can personalize bracelets, necklaces and even clothes with their names on it.
Statement shirts are also a fun and unique gift you can give. It can have a sweet quote or even a funny caption it all depends on what you think their parent’s would love to see. You can even make your own design to make it extra special.
A personalized baby picture frame is also a good choice of present. You can do so by picking the best photo of your little one and make it into a special and unique canvas just for them. Another option is to create a personalized 12 months picture canvas that their parents can fill out with their selected photo per month for the first year of their baby’s life.
But for me, the best personalized gift that you can give is a personalized baby book. It does not only show how special the child is to you, it can also be educational at the same time. Personalized books have different themes depending on your child’s age and gender. The great thing about this is that the book will use the baby’s name and incorporate it to a story made especially for them.
My top pick for this personalized baby book is the “My Very Own Name” created by writer Maia Haag and illustrated by Mark Mille. The book can be given to newborn babies up to kids aged 9. If you would want to check out their awesome work you can do so by going to their website here.
If you want to be a step above all the other gifts then you can go with fancy gifts as your presents. What could be fancier than a basket of assorted baby items that are carefully hand-picked to cater to your little one’s needs? This could probably top any baby shower party gift if you ask me.
The people behind the Bluum website can give you the best baby product there is for your little one. They will provide a wide array of baby items for your order. It can range from baby care products to baby toys, books and even baby gears.
All you have to do is to fill out their form and sign in to your account.

Sponsored Post – I remember the time when my baby wanted to be carried more as compared to being placed in her stroller. Carrying her everywhere I go was definitely a very hard task for me. When my husband is not around to help me “co-carry” my daughter I usually get drained physically very, very easily.
Thank heavens for the existence of baby carriers. It helped me, my husband and practically anyone who carried my daughter. Using these ingenious products made carrying my child a breeze and it also gave lesser body strains when used properly.
Based on my own experience, it is definitely a must for every child to have their own baby carrier. Trust me when I say that sooner or later your little ones will get tired of riding their strollers. Their next “preference of commuting” would be for you to carry them instead.
Regardless if you are at the mall or you are just inside your house cleaning, your kiddos would want to be carried. That is why you need to find the right baby carrier for your baby. You should also take into consideration that you should benefit from it as well.
When you talk about baby carriers and how they function, I can explain it in the simplest way possible. Just imagine you carrying your baby without using your hands for support. That’s practically it if you ask me.
The plus side of wearing and using a baby carrier is that it lessens the effort your whole body gets when carrying your child. In addition, a good baby carrier will also help you with proper posture as well.
Of course nowadays there are baby carries that are ergonomically designed to fit you child’s age range. Unlike before when we only have to adjust the straps‘ length, baby carrier designs are now very versatile and flexible.
These new baby carrier products can shift their design up to six times depending on your baby’s age. Each design functions differently and will benefit not only your baby but the person carrying them as well.
The forward facing baby carrier are best for babies who still do not have strong neck control. This position will help support them and will prevent their heads from bobbing while your carry them.
The facing in position is the ideal way to place your child when they are now strong enough to support their heads. It will also give you full access to your baby since you are now face to face with them.
The back carrying position are meant for more bigger kids. It’s like having them go on a piggy-back ride without the strain of you carrying their whole weight with your arms. In addition, the baby carrier will help you maintain proper posture while carrying your toddlers from the back.
The double shoulders function of the baby carrier is like having to wear a backpack around you. The only difference is that it has straps which will secure the carrier properly and snugly around your body. This function is used for the forward facing, facing in and back carrying position.
When you talk about the single shoulder function, it is like a sling bag with the addition of straps attached to it. This baby carrier function can be used for face in, face out positions and can even be used for side carrying position as well.
The best way I can describe how a hip seat looks like it that it is very similar to a waist bag or more commonly called a “fanny pack bag.“ This particular function can be used if yo have a newborn baby up to the age of one. You can use it as support when you want to lie your baby down or have them sit with support. The hip seat can also be used in the facing in face out and side carrying positions.
In addition to all of these practical and innovative functions of the baby carrier is the bodily support given to those who will be wearing them. Instead of your spine being twisted and your shoulders being unaligned just to carry your baby the baby carriers‘ design can give you the correct posture you need.
Wearing a baby carrier will allow your child’s weight to be evenly distributed throughout your whole body. In addition the baby carrier will not place any additional pressure to your hips or waist allowing you to have proper posture. This combined will alloy you to move freely and effortlessly while still carrying your baby.
Based on my own experience, I started using a baby carrier when my daughter already has enough neck strength to support her head on her own. But the new designs of the recent baby carriers allows children as young as newborns all the way up to three years old.
Of course there would be some questions that you would want to take note of before you decide to use a baby carrier. Don’t worry, you are not the only one who thinks like that. Most mom’s are hesitant to use a baby carrier because they think that it can have consequences that can affect their babies‘ physical appearance in the future.
Are Baby Carriers Bad For Babies?
The first thing that pops into our minds when buying this product is that “it might become a physical hazard for your child.“ What I mean by this is that we are afraid that using the carrier can deform or dislocate a body part of our fragile little ones.
Today’s baby carriers are ergonomically designed to prevent these type of injuries. First off, majority of the design they follow allows your child to always have the correct “M position“ when using the carrier. This means that each time you carry them they will have their knees bent and open to the sides with their thighs fully supported and comfortable.
Another thing that would erase your worries is that the baby carriers are designed to have several functions. These functions will allow the product to adjust accordingly to your child’s age and size.
A word of advise form someone who has gone through the baby carrier phase is to always check the straps attached to the carrier. Always make sure that it will fit snugly on your body. Allow yourself to be able to move freely without any resistance due to the carrier.
Also always check and adjust the length and width of the carrier according to your child’s size. You would be surprised to see how fast they can grow during the first few months of their lives. Always be alert so that you will prevent the carrier for being too tight for your child.
Can I Breastfeed While Wearing a Baby Carrier
Luckily the answer to this question is a big YES. The design of the baby carriers these days usually has a so-called “hip seat“ located at the bottom most part of the carrier. This can serve as a mini bed support as you breastfeed your child. Most of the designs of the manufacturers today is highly supportive of the baby carrier for breastfeeding design.
When Should I Wear a Baby Carrier
I am an avid supporter of close contact when it comes to my daughter. I want her to be as close to me as possible at all times. That is why I used my carrier as much as I can. Whether I would be cleaning the house, doing errands or even going out for leisure time, I always use it.
Apart form that, I also prefer using a baby carrier rather than a baby stroller. The reason is fairly simple and logical if you think about it. Carriers are less bulky, easy to carry and can be used anywhere without any restrictions.
Can you walk up a flight of stairs or pass through crowded areas with ease using a stroller? That’s what I thought as well. A baby carrier is definitely more convenient than a stroller if you don’t mind the constant additional weight while using it. Just think of it as additional workout, that’s what I did.
With the flexible and innovative designs of the baby carriers to date, you would only need one. Just make sure that what you purchase would fit in to you and your child’s lifestyle and way of living.
You need to think bout the durability, functionality and of course the design of the baby carrier you will be purchasing. In comparison to a baby wrap, a baby carrier is much more safer, reliable and long lasting. With a baby wrap, it can only accommodate children up to a year old or the most a year and a half. With a baby carrier, it can accommodate even toddlers the age of three depending on the child’s body size and weight of course.
If your are planning to buy something that will last a long time and at the same time you and your child would benefit from, I recommend buying the right baby carrier. A multi-functional baby carrier will definitely give you your money’s worth.
Before you decide to purchase a baby carrier for your little one, make sure that the product you will buy can give you what you and your baby needs. Buying the best baby carrier for newborns must not only be safe, practical and versatile but also trendy and fashionable.
Also make sure that the baby carrier that you will buy can give your several functions that you can use for your child as they grow. It is definitely a big plus if the baby carrier can have the three major functions which includes the “hip seat,“ the “double shoulder strap“ and the “single shoulder strap.“
Take note as well if each function can accommodate the three basic positions of carrying a child. These include the “face in,“ the “face out“ and finally the “side carry“ position. In total, you can have nine different varieties of carrying positions for your little ones.
To complete you checklist of “what must be included in a baby carrier“ is to have an ergonomical design fit to your child’s comfort. Remember that the position that your baby must be in when using a baby carrier is the “M position.“ This particular posture will prevent your child from having “Hip Dysplasia.“ This developmental condition is when your child’s ball and socket joint on the hips does not properly form.
The reason why I keep on stating these innovative facts is because these modern design is what differentiates it greatly from a regular baby carrier. Having these advanced functionality available can give you a definite boost when caring for your child.
In summary, what we need in a baby carrier is it’s ergonomic design, multi-functional aspects, safe and comfortable fit and a long-lasting use. With all these in mind I can say that the “MiaMily Hipster 3D Baby Carrier“ is the top contender against other baby carriers ont in the market.
Not only does this product have all that what we need it also has been awarded several recognition due to it’s incredible performance.

Most parents choose this type of convertible crib for its practicality and longevity. It can be transformed from an infant bed to a full sized adolescent bed, which means it would last for at least 5 years if taken care of properly. This convertible crib is the best choice if you want to invest in a piece of furniture and save a good amount of money in the long run. Let me tell you some facts about 4 in 1 cribs.
Conversion pieces are separate pieces that makes the attachment of other features in the crib possible. Some pieces are sold separately while others already come with the package. These are the side railings that are attached to convert an infant bed into a toddler bed/daybed, and the bed frames for converting a toddler bed into a twin bed/full sized bed.
Transitioning from the Moses basket, to a crib, then to a full-sized bed may be difficult for babies and children. They are more sensitive to their environment and a drastic change may threaten their security. Having a 4-in-1 crib will give you the opportunity to interchange your baby’s bed to its appropriate form. You will not b overwhelming your baby because it still is the comfortable bed he is used to.
4 in 1 cribs do not feature the “drop side” panels. These panels are meant to be lowered for the ease of taking your baby out. This feature has contributed to at least 32 of infant deaths during the last decade. This type of crib has stationary sides which is safer for your little one. Always do a little bit of research before you jump in on buying a product. Most importantly, make sure that the product meets the most recent U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission standards.
Not only are these cribs convenient, but they are also cost effective. They may be more expensive than other cribs in the market, but they do last longer. They are built to last and they adapt to the needs of your little one. Having only one piece that has multiple purposes is certainly a good thing to have. If you are a practical and stylish parent who wants to have their money’s worth back, then this crib is for you (and your baby, of course). 😉
If you are about to deliver your bundle of joy anytime soon, then you are probably scouting the best crib that money can buy.

If you are doing so, I can give you a few ideas on the DaVinci Emily 4 in 1 convertible crib so that you can see if it would fit perfectly to your crib criteria.

The crib is made up entirely of wood and is guaranteed to pass the ASTM/CPSC standards. Basically it means that the product is child safe and environmentally safe as well.
It also comes in five colors which can perfectly fit the color scheme of your baby’s room. You can pick from my favorite color which is natural, white, oak, cherry or ebony. The design of the crib itself is neutral and sleek so you can use this crib regardless of what the gender of your baby is.
Similar to other 4-in-1 convertible cribs, the DaVinci Emily 4-in-1 convertible crib has 4 features that you can use. The crib can be adjusted according to the physical development of your kids. It can be used starting from your kids newborn days up to their teen years.
First is the standard crib which is perfect for you newborn baby and all the way before their toddler years. Next is the toddler bed which is perfect when your child is starting to grow to his toddler years starting at two.
The third feature of the crib is the day bed which is best for bigger kids that are in grade school. Finally the full size bed feature can be used by your pre-teen or even late teen kids. Well, given the fact that they are still cool with using their crib as their teen bed that is.
Of course, when you look for the perfect product for your child, you should know its pros and cons. For this crib we can safely say that you will only be purchasing the crib itself. This means that the mattress, the toddler bed and fill sized bed conversion kits are sold separately.
To become more specific, the whole package of the DaVinci Emily 4-in-1 convertible crib consist of the crib itself with the four level mattress support. It will also include the day bed conversion rail and finally the full sized headboard and footboard.
What caught my attention to this product is that the DaVinci Emily 4-in-1 convertible crib is made of wood and not plastic or metal which is a plus factor for me. Apart for passing the ASTM/CPSC standards, the rib is also awarded with the Greenguard gold certification. This means that the crib is certified for low chemical emissions making it safe for children.
The crib is also guaranteed to last up to your child’s teen years as long as you are able to maintain and take good care of it. It can save a considerable amount of money as time goes by. Finally, it’s design is simple yet elegant with a touch of class making it the best-selling crib that the DaVinci manufacturers can offer to us.
Sponsored Post – The ongoing trend nowadays with mothers and parents alike are the innovative cribs that are present in the market. You can now have the freedom to choose what type of crib you would want your child to have. In addition it can be interchanged from a crib into a bed. But you must need to know what is a 3-in-1 crib first.
3 in 1 cribs are similar to your well known convertible cribs (also known as the 4-in-1 cribs). The only difference is that the 3-in-1 crib does not have as much option as the latter offers. But it does not mean that this product is not worth your time or money. It can be a good alternative for parents who are on a tight budget and could not afford a high end 4-in-1 convertible crib.
When buying the right baby product for your little ones, you need to consider several factors. It must not only give safety and comfort for you baby but it must be multi-functional and ergonomic at the same time. It will not only save you money but it will also give you longer use and will adapt as your baby grows.
One of the most important item that you need to buy for you little angel is a crib. Considering a 3-in-1 convertible crib in your baby shopping list is a wise choice to make. This product definitely answers your questions about safety, comfort and flexibility for you and your baby.
You have probably noticed several cribs that is branded a 3-in 1 cribs. But what does it actually mean and how does it work? As the name describes, cribs with this particular design will be able to give you a total of three multi-functional features.
Basically, the crib itself can start from a regular crib. Once your baby gets bigger, the crib can be adjusted according to the needs of your little one. Once your baby is big enough, the once little crib can now be converted into a baby’s day bed. When your baby reaches their toddler years, the day bed can now be fully converted into a toddler bed which is roughly around as big as a small single bed.
If you are wondering how a small crib can turn into a day bed and finally into a toddler bed, well the answer is based on a “do it yourself” factor. The crib has been carefully modeled so that it can easily be converted from one function to another. The only thing you need to prepare is your assembling skills.
Take note that sometimes, the original 3 in 1 cribs “package” does not include the materials you need to convert the item to different beds. Usually, the resources that you will be needing is sold separately. So better take note of this factor once buying a crib.
Once you are able to finally get your hands on all the needed materials then all you must to do is to assemble it. You need not to worry if you are bad at DIY. The design of the crib assures ease of assembly and it comes with a full set of instructions for you to follow.
Like what I have previously mentioned, what 3 in 1 cribs can offer is almost the same as the 4-in-1 models. This crib only lack the features that can make it a “toddler bed.” But the other bed choices can be made using this product.
This will be the first ever bed that your child will use. The bed will allow you to have easy access to your child. At the same time, like what I did, it can be used as a quick diaper changing area if needed. Since the mattress of the crib is located just inches from the top of the crib, you can use the empty bottom half for storage in the meantime.
This bed is best used for children who are currently in their toddler years. The mattress of the crib will be adjusted to the lowest level possible in order to convert the standard crib into the day bed style. This time around, you can say goodbye to your “bottom half storage space.” When using this feature, you will have to remove a portion of the cribs’ railings. This will allow easier access for your children when they would want to go in and out of their bed.
This is the final feature of the 3-in-1 crib that is best suited for your preschooler kids. The mattress level is still set on the lowest possible state. Since your children are now more aware of their surroundings, you can opt to remove all of the railing of the crib making it now look like a real bed.
The availability of “add-ons’ can differ from one manufacturer to another. But basically they have similar “freebies” that parents can use throughout the transitioning process of the crib.
First is the availability of a diaper changing table. This table can be anchored at either end of the crib. This allows easy access for the parents whenever they need to change their kid. When disassembled, the changing table can be converted into a bedside table, a book shelf or even an additional storage space. Since the changing table has extra drawers and storage space, it can be a great addition once your child transitions to his/her daybed.
Next up are the headboards and the footboards. Well, basically it is not a freebie. But these are once the side railings of the crib that can now be used as another bed accessory. Once it is time for the crib to be converted into a full singe or twin bed, the railings will then be attached to the bedframe to accommodate the size of the single/twin bed.
The third is the aforementioned additional storage spaces that parents can use while the crib is still in its standard form. The lower part of the crib can be used to stock your child’s clothes, diapers, bottles and many more. Take it from me when I say that you need to choose the correct items to store under the crib. Place baby items that you would always use all throughout the day like clothes, diapers and bottles. It will be less time consuming and will allow you to move faster.
The 3 in 1 cribs are probably the second best choice for your child’s needs following the 4-in-1 convertible crib. Not only is it less expensive, it can also provide the basic necessity we are looking for in a state-of-the-art type of crib. Personally, I would prefer this crib over the 4-in-1 if I am in a tight budget.
If you plan to check for the best 3 in 1 cribs in the market, there are several manufactures that can probably meet your standards and can fit with your furniture style. Some of these include the “Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail” which is GREENGUARD Gold Certified (screened for over 10,000 chemicals) and meets international and U.S. CPSC safety standards (JPMA Certified).
Another very good option is the “Babyletto Modo 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail” that is also JPMA certified. It is also made of sustainable New Zealand Pine Wood and the price is a little bit more attractive right now than the Babyletto Hudson crib.
Ever set your eye on something so simple, yet so effective? Ever seen something so basic, yet it has everything you will ever need for the next year or so? Here, I will talk you through my review of the Union 3-in-1 Convertible Crib and why it is garnering so many darn good reviews!
Union 3-in-1 Convertible Crib has a lot of rave reviews on Amazon. This crib has a total of over 600 customer reviews. With 73% of 5-star rating and only 3% of 1-star rating as I am writing this review, you sure know what you’re getting. Let me give you a proper breakthrough of why most consumers love it.
If you are someone who loves simple designs and prioritizes effectiveness over aesthetics, then this product is perfect for you. Parents fell in love with this crib because it has a high value for its low price. Who wouldn’t love that? You’re basically getting more for less. The design is a major feature because it is simple yet elegant and can fit any tastes. Whether you have a “no-frills” nursery or an “over-the-top” one Union 3-in-1 Convertible Crib can easily blend in. When purchasing a product, though, always check for drawbacks first. Your baby’s health and safety should be your number 1 priority.
As a parent with very limited space inside the house, this would very much fit my preference. I, for one, love something that can last for a very long time and the design would just be a bonus. But with this, you’ll have both. You can customize it any way you want, and it would still retain its effectiveness as a crib. If you are a practical and stylish mom, I highly recommend this crib to you. 🙂
In a world where everything we touch emits chemicals and pollution, going green is the right path to choose. For the past decades, as technology began to rise, we have been ignoring the cries of our own Mother Nature. What can we do? We can start by doing small things. Let’s start by preferring much better products that doesn’t impose harm and danger to our environment. The production of these items should be considered, too. So it’s best to go for brands that are environmentally sustainable and energy efficient. One of these brands is babyletto, and I’m here to tell you some information about one of its star products: The babyletto Modo 3 in 1 Crib with Toddler Rail.
Let me tell you why parents love this particular crib.
This crib is – almost – flawless, according to reviews. The modern design is pretty much highlighted, and it certainly is a very stylish crib. The thing about this crib is its versatility. It can be in a dramatic setting, or a simpler one, and it will meld in just fine.
The Babyletto Modo 3 in 1 Crib with Toddler Rail is a mix of elegance, quality and convenience. Not to mention that the product and the production itself is considerate of our environment. You can never go wrong with a product that has it all. If these are your priorities when choosing a lasting bed for your little one, then I highly recommend this product for you. 🙂
There are a lot of 3-in-1 convertible crib with toddler rail out in the market and it can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t have enough knowledge about it. You can add to your options the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail. It may not be a 4-in-1 crib but it will function almost similarly to it.
In order to include the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail to your list, you must know both the pro’s and con’s of the product. I hope I can shed a little light for you in choosing the best crib that is fitting for your child, your home, your style and your budget.
Since the design of the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail is based on modern schemes, it can fit easily with whatever style you plan to decorate your baby’s room. Another plus is that the appearance of the crib can be used by either a boy or a girl.
Amazingly, the crib comes in seven different colors that you can choose from. So far this is the widest array of color scheme that I have seen for a crib. These colors include white, espresso, espresso/white, gray/white, gray, washed natural and finally white/washed natural. Of course, each color will correspond to different prices once your purchase it.
The base of the crib does not have any wheels on it making it more secure and safe for your child. It also has stable toddler rails that can give additional protection especially when your baby starts to stand and move around.
The crib is made out of pine wood and has passed the Greenguard standards. This means that this product has a non-toxic, lead and phthalate safe finish. It also meets the ASTM and CPSC standards so you can be rest assured that your little one will be safe from chemical exposures.
When you purchase this product, you will also get to own its toddler bed conversion kit as well. This will allow you to transition the crib into its other features as your child grows.
Like the name states, this crib can only transition into three features. First is the regular crib that is best for newborns. Its next feature is the toddler bed wherein you can adjust the mattress in to the lowest level possible and provide a small entrance for your child so that they can easily get I and out of their bed.
The last function of the crib is the day bed. It can be used by your preschoolers but only up to a limited time. Once they outgrow the bed, you can no longer adjust it to become a full sized single or twin bed. This is the only difference between a 3-in-1 convertible crib with toddler rails and a 4-in-1 convertible crib.
The product does have its toddler conversion kit but it does not include a mattress. So you have to purchase the crib’s mattress separately. It is also very risky to match the crib with a mattress from a different manufacture because it might not fit securely to the crib.
In my own opinion, I would rather go with the likes of the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail than to purchase a 4-in-1 crib due to practicality reasons. First is that we will never know how durable and long-lasting the product is.
If you purchase a 4-in-1 crib that assures you it can be used up until teen years, it will definitely be tested in terms of its wear and tear. With kids these days, it is very nerve-racking to judge if the crib WOULD reach your child’s teen years. The downside is, due to too much damage, you might not be able to reuse it again.
As for the 3-in-1 convertible crib with toddler rails, it will have lesser chances of damage and it won’t wear out as much as the 4-in-1. This means that it can have a better chance to be reused once again if you are expecting another bundle of joy.
The second major factor that made me choose the Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail is because of our child’s mental development. Yes this is a bit weird but hear me out.
When I mentioned mental what I meant is your child’s capability of understanding. Let us put it this way, imagine you were the baby who is now all grown up as a teen. You would want your room to have its own design according to your preference, right? This includes the color scheme, the decors and of course, the furniture. Would you want your bed be the same bed you had when you were a baby? Of course not. Now you know where I’m getting at.
The Babyletto Hudson 3-in-1 Convertible Crib with Toddler Rail is a good choice if you plan to invest on a crib that can accommodate your child up until their pre-schooling years. It is also very trendy, modern and safe. If you plan to go shopping, I suggest you take a gander on this product.
Are you a “green” mommy? If you don’t know what “green” means, it means pursuing knowledge and practicing sustainable living in environmentally friendly way. That’s a mouthful isn’t it? But basically, it just means that you prefer everything that contributes to the well-being of our planet. You learn about “green” practices, prefer organic foods, products, technologies that are beneficial to our environment and other sustainable alternatives.
If you’re planning on going “green”, then you can start by eliminating toxic products and replacing them with eco-friendly ones. Start with the next generation, start with your baby. Going green is basically doing small steps for the betterment of the world. When will be the right time to start if it isn’t now? Baby bedding would be the perfect area to start with because newborns practically live on their cribs. So may I make a suggestion? Read on for more details because the product I’m talking about is the DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib.
Are you someone who loves vintage designs instead of modern and architectural ones? Do you love the vibe you get when you walk into a room and you feel like you entered the 1950’s? Do you love items that bring nostalgic feelings and evoke a sense of calmness? No busy streets, no loud cars and devices, just tranquility. Are you also a mom who loves being practical and prefers eco-friendly products and lifestyle? Then this crib might just be the right one for you.
DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib is both pleasing to the eyes and to the environment. And if it’s safe for the environment, then it’s safe for your baby, too. I must say, though, that some products are not meant to last forever especially if they’re used in a daily basis. There will come a time that you’ll have to say goodbye to those, so take care of them as much as you can. Yes, I am talking about this particular crib. It needs love and care if you want it to get the job done and if you want it to last like any other furniture. When taken care of properly, this product will last until the next babies arrive.
When buying baby furniture, always do your research, always ask for details. Prior to buying, make sure that the place you will buy it from has a return and exchange policy. Upon delivery, check for any dents or damage in the materials, finish and individual pieces. You can always return it if you’re not satisfied with the product. Always go for high quality and well-made items for your baby because you cannot risk anything. Being a mom is being attentive and being sensitive to your child’s needs. I recommend the DaVinci Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib to you if you love an effective, useful, eco-friendly product with a beautiful and classic design. 🙂

Sponsored Post – Are you a mom like me who easily stresses over baby gears’ safety? Are you a mom who empathizes with her baby to make sure everything is the most comfortable in the world? Then good! We’re off to a great start because I am a very sensitive mom, especially when it comes to newborns. I want to make sure that everything is the best one for him. So you can imagine my disappointment when I bought a low quality baby carrier that made by baby very uncomfortable and he looks like he’s in pain.
Little did I know about carriers back then, and I just bought one out of need. I didn’t do any research prior to buying; I just saw one and bought it because my baby loves being carried. The structural carrier I bought brought tears to my eyes because not only is it a little more complicated, but it is also NOT a baby carrier with back support. It doesn’t even have a decent, form-fitting structure for the baby and it advertises wrongly because only toddlers can fit into that kind of carriers. But, enough about that; let me let you a little something about a great baby carrier with back support that you can be sure you bought the right product.
Before I give you the full details and information about the carrier I mentioned, let me increase your excitement by sharing with you why wearing your baby is a great thing:
As moms, one of our first and main concerns when using a carrier for our babies is their comfort, specifically their backs. We may think that prolonged use of carrier throughout the day will cause too much pressure on their growing spine. Trust me, I thought of that, too. But I did some research and it turned out that the right kinds of carriers have great back support even for babies who still have soft spines.
An advice, though, is when using structured carriers, avoid putting your babies on an outward position (not facing you) very often. It causes overstimulation and is not good for the back. It stretches the baby’s c-curved spine into a straight line which is against its natural shape. When choosing a baby carrier with back support, make sure that is of high quality and thoughtfully made. It should also allow the baby’s legs to spread around your hip like when you are traditionally carrying her by your arms.
You may have remembered me talking about a great product earlier. This is it. MiaMily is a Swiss brand co-founded by Alessandro and Cecilia specializing in a multi-purpose baby carrier called the MiaMily Hipster™ Plus 3D Baby Carrier which is a great one piece with the benefits of THREE carriers (a hip seat, a structured carrier and a ring sling) in one. It is carefully and thoughtfully designed that it is able to cater to ALL age groups (from newborn until toddler years) and it is made with the parents in mind, too. This carrier is ergonomic which means it reduces the amount of discomfort and back pains parents have when wearing their babies. It also allows proper spinal posture by allowing the baby’s weight to evenly distribute to both sides of mom’s body, thus avoiding too much weight on either side of the hip.
Hipster™ Plus also has a double-layer option perfect for all seasons. It can keep your baby warm during the colder months, and keep your baby cool during the summer months. It also has extra storage for you and your baby’s necessities, which can help lessen your baggage. What’s beautiful about this carrier is its simplicity and modern feel. It is perfect for a modern mom with a modern style. It is also great for dads because they can wear this without compromising fashion and masculinity since wraps and slings are more for moms.
MiaMily Hipster™ Plus 3D Baby Carrier is the best back baby carrier for when you need something structured, effective, multipurpose and SAFE. Safety and comfort is always first when choosing a baby gear and this carrier has those pinned down. I love that it is very considerate of its target customers, not only to sell. They care about both babies and parents alike. If you are thinking of getting a great, high quality carrier very much worth its price, then this product is for you.
Sponsored Post – When choosing for your baby, you will always prefer something that you think is the best. You want all the tiny details about a certain product and you want to be sure how safe, effective and comfortable it is. It is the same with every aspect; may it be food, clothing, and of course, the gears they will be using every day for the coming months and years. Baby gears, such as a baby carrier with hip seat are optional. They can range from a want to a necessity, depending on your baby and your lifestyle as a family. If you are more active on a day to day basis and you often want your baby with you, a carrier is a necessity.
There are also a lot of research regarding baby wearing and how it is good for both the parent and the child. As I’ve read in the past, baby wearing works wonders. It can calm a fussy baby, it can strengthen the bond between parent and baby, and it can boost breast milk production. Apart from that, though, baby carriers don’t just serve one purpose. By carrying the baby very close to the parent, it allows the same stimulation that a baby can get from the environment compared to when riding a regular stroller (without the bulkiness).
Because a baby’s day out is a fun time, choosing the appropriate carrier is a must. It should have a good back support, a form-hugging structure and a comfortable and breathable fabric. Another great choice is a baby carrier with hip seat as it acts like an actual “seat” for your baby. It differs from a standard structured carrier in a way that your baby won’t feel too carried. She has room for more movement meaning more exploration. It is also more comfortable for a toddler who already has a strong back support as they are now more accustomed to sitting down.
When choosing hipseat carriers, however, it should pass safety standards for you to be sure that your baby is as comfortable as he can get. Low quality hipseat carriers are known to put too much pressure on the baby’s growing hips. Worst case scenarios would be hip dysplasia which is the abnormal formation of the hip joint. This can lead to osteoarthritis and can last until adult years. So when choosing a baby carrier with hip seat, you should source it from a reputable brand. Make sure that it passed safety standards, and is receiving mostly positive feedbacks from customers.
MiaMily is a Swiss brand co-founded by Alessandro and Cecilia. They specialize in a multi-purpose baby carrier called the MiaMily Hipster™ Plus 3D Baby Carrier. This carrier give customers the benefits of THREE carriers namely the hip seat, structured carrier and ring sling. It is specifically designed to cater to ALL age groups (including the newborn stage) and it is designed for the safety of the parent as well. This carrier is ergonomic, which means it allows proper spinal posture because it allows the baby’s weight to evenly distribute to both sides, thus eliminating the chances of having more weight on either side of the hip. It also minimizes the discomfort and back pains parents have when wearing their babies. So this means that not only the babies are comfortable, but the parent as well.
Hipster™ Plus also has a dual-layer option, which is perfect for every season. You can remove a single layer for the summer months, then put it back again during chilly weathers. It also has extra storage for your baby’s needs and essentials, as well as your necessities so you can ditch the bag and just bring the carrier. What I love about this is its simplicity and structural feel. It is perfect for a modern mom with a modern style. It is also perfect for dads because it’s not too feminine unlike wraps or slings with a softer and more flowing design.
What’s more important is that it has been submitted and approved by numerous global-wide safety standards. This includes the global safety standard EN13209-2:2005 and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2014 in U.S./Canada. When choosing a baby gear, always do research to avoid putting yourself and your baby at risk.
With a baby carrier with hip seat like this, you cannot go wrong. It ticks all the boxes when looking for the perfect carrier. It looks good, it feels good, it’s safe and it’s an investment because you can use it even when your baby is growing up every day. Just make sure that your baby is ready and she’s already at the right age and development.
Sponsored Post – As moms, we automatically become multi-taskers. We are expected to do at least two things at once, because we have errands, we have babies, and we have a home to take care of. Most moms are alone and don’t have other people to help them with chores. So they go outside, shop for groceries, pay the bills, and they have to bring their babies with them.
I will never forget when I had my first baby. He is high-needs and overly sensitive, so I have to have him with me at all times. He cries when we’re apart and he cries when he’s with other people, so I can’t entrust him even to my own husband. You know what I did? I resorted to baby carriers but just for a while. It turned out that the one we bought was not of high quality because every time we put him in, he seems so uncomfortable, like his back was in pain. We ditched the carrier and I just carried him in my arms.
But today, baby carriers are a “thing”. They are widely recognized and are being normalized, too. Baby carriers have different styles and forms, but on this article, I am going to share with you a product that might be the best front facing baby carrier.
A baby carrier is a type of baby gear that is used for carrying your baby close to you so that you will be hands-free. It is a big help for mommies whose hands are constantly occupied of work while in the house and outdoors. Baby carriers are life savers. They do the job for you and you can still do other things without having to worry if your baby is safe and is taken care of, because she’s with you!
Unlike strollers that are bulky and needs to be pushed around, baby carriers are wrapped around you and your baby. You are at peace because you can feel your baby on you, and you don’t need to do anything because it moves with your every move. It is also very simple to use with no assembly needed (except for the wraps which are a little bit more complex). The most common kind of baby carriers is the front facing baby carrier.
Baby carriers are sort of a necessity. I say “sort of” because not every parent really needs one. It depends on one’s preference, lifestyle, and of course, it depends on the baby. Baby carriers are more special travel baby gears than regular strollers. Why so? They have something that strollers don’t have – closeness. Baby carriers make it possible for the parent and baby to bond more because they’re in a very close proximity (sticking together).
Babies love to feel the warmth and smell the scent of their mothers. It calms them in a way that reminds them of the womb. Being in a carrier gives them the same feeling, not just because of the warmth. It also provides constant movement, a tight environment, and easy access to food (breastmilk). A baby carrier does wonders. There are organizations that encourage new parents to babywear especially during the first few months or what they call the “4th trimester”. It is explained that during these months, babies are still adjusting to their new world and still need the feeling they are accustomed to. Babywearing provides this feeling, which helps babies to be calmer and more cheerful.
Though babywearing is an amazing tradition in the past, it has been forgotten for a while now. There are raised eyebrows from modern people who are concerned about the baby’s safety. I’ve been hearing all kinds of issues from spinal stress to abnormal leg formations. But these problems only arise from incorrect babywearing and of course, low quality baby carriers.
Front carriers are the most popular and common kind of carriers. They can also be worn by dads because they look more modern and structural than slings and wraps. They are fairly easy to use, just wear it like a front pack then secure the back with its clasp. You can wear your baby facing you, facing outward, or on your back. But make sure that your baby is secure even when you can’t see her.
Other popular types of baby carriers are the slings and wraps. Slings are a wide piece of fabric that can be adjusted to “catch” your baby in a specific form. Some slings can be used for as early as newborn days until toddler days. Slings are widely used in history when modern carriers are not yet invented. They are the simplest carriers because they’re just a piece of cloth wrapped around the torso and it “hangs” on the shoulder for the baby’s weight. They are mostly used in developing countries where women need to do manual labor while carrying their babies.
Slings have two designs: the ring sling and the pouch sling. The difference between the two is that the ring sling can be adjusted via the ring, while the pouch sling is a sized, one piece of fabric to wrap the parent and the baby into one. The pouch sling, though very sleek and convenient, can’t be shared by two persons of different sizes because it is not adjustable.
Wraps also come in two types: woven and stretchy. Woven wraps are usually made of cotton or cotton/polyester blends. They are usually sewn in fine yarns of different densities. They are preferred by moms because they are comfortable as well as durable, and they hug the form of your baby to support her back. Stretchy wraps, on the other hand, are made of jersey or interlock fabrics; some are cotton/jersey blends. They are stretchy because they’re made with a percentage of either spandex or Lycra. Because of their stretch, moms prefer them so that it adjusts to your baby’s form and allows more movement.
When choosing a carrier, it is always the first step to choose something age-appropriate. There are appropriate carriers for specific age groups. For newborns; slings, stretchy wrap and woven wraps are recommended because they are form-fitting and are perfect for breastfeeding positions. They support the baby’s weak spine and neck so there will be no pressure whatsoever. From 4 months until toddler years; ring and pouch slings, woven and stretchy wraps, as well as the Mei Tai and soft-structured carriers are recommended. These are specifically for babies who already have a strong neck control. Hipseat carriers however, are recommended for babies whose spines are already strong enough because these carriers will act like an actual seat; therefore they are not form-fitting but very comfortable for the right age and development.
So, of all the types of carriers we’ve discussed above, have you chosen the right one for your baby? If not, then don’t fret, because I have one that can act as not one, not two, but THREE types of carrier.
MiaMily is a Swiss brand co-founded by Alessandro and Cecilia. It specializes in a multi-purpose baby carrier called the MiaMily Hipster™ Plus 3D Baby Carrier. This product gives customers the benefits of a hip seat, a structured carrier and a ring sling in one. It is very thoughtfully designed that it caters to ALL age groups (yes even the newborn stage) and it is made with concern for the parent as well. This carrier is ergonomic, which means that it minimizes the discomfort and back pains parents have when wearing their babies. It allows proper spinal posture because it allows the baby’s weight to evenly distribute to both sides, thus eliminating the chances of having more weight on either side of the hip.
Hipster™ Plus also has a double-layer option, which is perfect for every season. You can remove a single layer for warmer months, then put it back again during cooler weathers. It also has extra storage for when you and your baby are on-the-go. What I love about this carrier is its simplicity and modern feel. It is perfect for a modern mom with a modern style. It is also dad-appropriate because it’s not too feminine unlike wraps or slings with a softer design.
What more could a multi-tasker want if not a multi-tasker, too? I highly recommend the MiaMily Hipster™ Plus 3D Baby Carrier for moms who are a little bit of an “extra”. Those who doesn’t want to settle on something that can serve only one purpose. I love that it comes with multiple options and you get the most out of your money. As a mom who wants to have another set of hands, I definitely prefer a product like this. Something that could give me the same effect.
Sponsored Post – When I buy clothing for my daughter, I try to choose designs that can help her practice her cognitive skills. For example, I recently bought her a shirt that has big letters as its design that spells out words. She instantly likes it because of its vibrant colors and her familiarization with the letters present in the shirt.
Once she saw the letters, she instantly recites it one by one. This gave me an idea that when she gets older. I can buy a set of days of the week underwear for girls. She can further practice her cognitive skill and become independent when dressing up.
Of course the underwear must be comfortable and soft so that my daughter would have no problem wearing it throughout the day. It would also be a plus if the underwear would have different colors to let my daughter know what day the certain color represents.
The reason why I would want to have a color representation for each day is because kids in the toddler age can register colors more easily that words. Having a color tag on each day can help them learn the days of the week little by little.
Luckily I came across an online shop that offers just what I need. I assure you that once you see it, you would also be enticed to check it out yourselves. Not only does it have all that I asked for in an underwear but it also gives something special for their buyers.
The “Days of the Week Underwear” for girls is designed to be a hipster fit underwear. The waistband fits comfortably at your child’s hips. Its design is a tad lower that the regular high cut styles. High cut styles are usually offered in other toddler underwear products. But it promises to offer a full coverage despite its trendy design.
The design of this underwear will help your little girl to delegate a particular underwear for a specific day. Each set includes seven pairs of underwear which is color coded to represent each day of the week. It also has several motifs to accompany the days that is printed on the front part of the underwear.
There is a total of three designs that you can choose from. We have the “bunny,” the “flower” and finally the “butterfly” design. Like what I have previously stated, each day has a specific color assigned to it in the form of its waistband. For Monday we have the color red, Tuesday is light blue, Wednesday is green, Thursday is yellow, for Friday we have orange, Saturday is color pink and finally for Sunday we have violet.
What I like about this underclothing is that the fabric itself is color white. First is that it looks neat and clean. Another is that it can detect if your child has stained it when they accidentally did not make it to the bathroom. Which realistically happens once in a while.
The fabric used for this is a soft tri-blend material consisting of cotton, modal and spandex. The design also has a tag-less feature. This will prevent your her from having that itchy feeling every time she wears it.
