Niche Market – Feed in style with the Nook Niche

Orange niche by Nook feeding pillow

Nook sets the standard in cool, organic mattresses, so when we saw that they jazzed up feeding pillows (notoriously un-chic) we were over the moon. Dubbed the “Niche,” the feeding pillow is organic in and out and made in America. Breathable and comfy, it can also be used as a prop seat for a baby or a side sleeper for mom or dad. The cover is made of organic cotton and eucalyptus, while the core is fashioned from organic kapok. It fits the Babesta niche just right!

Ultimate Urban Ride, Bugaboo Bee Three Takes on the City with Style

We have now lived with the newest version of the Bee stroller for a month or so and we are really digging it. We can’t get over the cool style of the structured bassinet that looks super comfy and easy to manage. The agile stroller is easily matched with the narrow city streets and aisles of your favorite shopping spot and the foldability is a snap.

Not only did Bugaboo amp up the bassinet feature of the Bee, but they also added an extendable sun canopy that’s UPF 50+ protected, and increased the size of the underseat basket. There are a number of other tweaks and improvements for the city stroller, including a reinforced chassis, better rain cover and 5-point harness.

And this customizable stroller has so many color options, it’s really “as you like it.” Choose from an aluminum or black frame, seat and bassinet fabric in dark khaki, red, gray  mélange or black and then select one of eight different canopy colors: off white, dark khaki, bright yellow, red, soft pink, ice blue, gray mélange or black.

For on the go, this one’s got game! Come into the shop to check it out and give it a stroll or see it online.

 

 

Easy Chair: Choosing the Best High Chair for your Baby

high chairs at Babesta Bloom Stokke Nuna OxoShopping for a high chair is not as tricky as for a stroller, but there still are some things you may want to consider. Do you need it to fold up, or multi-task? Wipe clean in a jiff or transition to a desk chair? Whatever you’re looking for, we’ve put together our top picks in sweet seats.

Table Topic #1: Multi-functional, Newborn ready

Although children don’t generally sit up in a high chair until they are 6 months old, some seats can do double duty, acting also as lofted loungers for infants until they make the jump to solid foods. Giving them this lift is great, especially if you have other kids or pets who might be overly interested in the new baby.

fresco high chairOur picks: The Fresco Chrome high chair by Bloom easily transition from lounger to high chair, and, as a high chair, can be adjusted seamlessly from table to breakfast bar level. Of course, with a nod to mod, these chairs make a strong style statement in the kitchen. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Table Topic #2: Easy Clean

One of the biggest concerns with high chairs, since table manners are not included, is the ease of cleaning. You want to look for chairs with minimal or no crevices, easily removable pieces, and materials that can be swiftly wiped down après-lunch.

zaaz high chairOur picks: The Nuna Zaaz features a no-crevice design and also has removable dishwasher safe parts. The Oxo Sprout is made of molded plastic and can be wiped down quickly with a damp cloth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Table Topic #3: Long Lasting

When you invest in a design piece, you want to be able to use it for the duration. They’ll all take you through the high chair years (usually 6 months-3 years) and some can be used long after.

trip trap by stokkeOur picks: Where the Bloom Fresco Chrome has the front end, as the only one from 0+, the Stokke Tripp Trapp and Nuna Zaaz can be used from toddler to adult, each holding over 200 pounds. Both of these chairs can saddle right up to the table or can be used as a “satellite solution” (our words) where baby is backed up from the table with a tray.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Table Topic #4: Easy to Store

Nano by bloom Our picks: We love the slim pack-ability of the Nano by Bloom.  It folds right up and is easy to store in a closet when not in use.
