TRICK: Many baby products are made with foam and require fire-retardant chemicals which can not only cause a strange smell (due to off-gassing), but studies have shown that these chemicals are doing greater harm than good to the health and well-being of the families exposed to these chemicals. Scientists and health advocacy groups are finally asking, “What’s really important? Saving “things” or saving the health of families?” A Duke University study recently unveiled this and applauds San Diego Bebe(R) for producing a high-quality nursing pillow without using harmful chemicals.

Treat #2: Nizo Wear Nursing Bras

Breastfeeding can cause some discomfort which can deter moms from continuing to nurse their new baby. A perfect solution is Nizo Wear nursing bras which feature a unique patented pocket in the pull down flap that can hold a warm or cool pack. The Nizo Wear design has removable molded cups and the pocket also holds a nursing pad. In addition to the innovative functionality, Nizo Wear is made from amazingly soft fabrics and designed with lace, rhinestones, playful prints, and shapely lines to help moms feel stylish and good again — even when nursing.

Nizo Wear nursing bras currently come in three feminine styles: the Serenity Nursing Bra, Solace Nursing Bra, and the Allure Nursing Bra.

$19.99 – $29.99

TRICK: Many women are unsure how to accurately determine their bra size, especially new moms whose milk has just come in (you may feel like a foreign visitor in your own body). One very helpful tip is to wear a NON-padded bra to your nursing bra fitting (or when you measure yourself). Even a thinly padded bra can make your bust seem almost an inch larger, which will make your cup size off by an entire size!

Treat #3:  Babee Covee

The Babee Covee is a versatile baby blanket and cover that has SIX baby gear uses in ONE! Whether used to shield your baby from weather elements year round, from the paparazzi, or keeping your baby asleep, this award-winning, must-have baby gear eliminates the need to buy, pack and carry the long list of bulky single use items; no more overflowing diaper bag, no more blanket falling off the car seat or stroller, and no more germs on publicly shared items! This is a definite solution for mom and baby.

$39.99 – $49.99

TRICK: Draping a blanket over the car seat or stroller is common but don’t be fooled! The slightest gust of wind can blow the blanket right off leaving your cute baby blanket on the ground or even worse in a puddle! Not to mention your baby will be exposed to sun, wind, rain, snow or people. Also, there are many car seat covers, shopping cart covers, and high chair covers on the market. Often they will not stay put which is important with all the kicks and wiggles. And why buy all these single use items when all you need is Babee Covee?

Treat #4: Woombie Air Baby Swaddle

The Woombie Air ® is a new breathable swaddle for babies that allows for proper ventilation and helps regulation of body temperature. Swaddling is a great way to help babies sleep and is used to calm fussy babies. The unique peanut-shaped design requires no wrapping and is the safest and most comfortable swaddle for baby.

Woombie Air with Tru Air (TM) technology is perfect for all seasons and is super easy to use – just put baby in, zip and snap! No wrapping required.

$26.00

TRICK: Swaddling is an age-old technique however traditional swaddle blankets are not easy to use and if wrapped too tightly can limit baby’s mobility and cause hip dysplasia. Additionally, overwrapping can cause overheating which is linked to SIDS. Through various methods of feedback and focus groups, Woombie inventors have discovered that the infants’ most preferred and optimal hand/arm position when swaddling is over the heart! So remember, no arms pinned to the side when swaddling! Learn more about the Hands Over Hearts charity campaign here.

organic nursing pillowWritten by Sandy Clark, Inventor of San Diego Bebe Eco-Nursing Pillow

San Diego Bebe® was designed by San Diego native Sandy Clark, a passionate breastfeeding advocate and mother of twins. Clark was inspired at a San Diego beach one day where she witnessed a young mother unsuccessfully nursing her baby. As the mother struggled to keep a blanket across her shoulder while her baby wailed from heat and hunger, Clark vowed then and there to design a product that would help resolve the issue of privacy while nursing. San Diego Bebe® was born that day.

When Clark sent her organic nursing pillow to Duke to be tested and reviewed, Duke University Chemical Scientist Dr. Heather Stapleton, who is a mother herself, said, “The San Diego Bebe® Eco-Nursing Pillow is not only a very supportive pillow with amazing features for discreet nursing, but is also free of flame-retardant chemicals that have been shown to cause adverse health effects in animal studies. I applaud Double Blessings [Clark’s company] for taking steps to produce high quality products that meet the same flammability standards without using these chemicals.”

San Diego Bebe® Eco-Nursing Pillow is the healthiest and most innovative nursing pillow on the market. Made with virgin polyfiber Eco*Loft™, a non-toxic and hypo-allergenic foam-alternative, it’s void of harmful chemicals. It’s also recyclable and eco-friendly. San Diego Bebe® is available in two versions, for nursing one baby or twins. The entire line is baby-safe, and is covered with deluxe plush fabrics including organic cotton.
