It’s so exciting to be a mom-to-be!
Of course, I am surrounded by kids and moms every day, sharing my love for healthy kitchen fun in schools and homes throughout LA. But somehow everything feels just a little bit different now as I make my way into the final month of pregnancy. I find myself looking at the world of baby and mommy gear in a whole new light!
This past weekend, I had the pleasure of experiencing the Boom Boom Room celebrity gifting suite, presented by Jayneoni and promoted by Melissa Rappaport and Mikey Glazer. The Kitchen Kid team met fabulous vendors and sampled innovative, chic, and beautifully designed gear for every mom and mom-to-be!
…The beautifully knit and comfortable baby sling from Serene Sling. Despite my baby bump, I loved testing it out with the 8lb teddy bear! The fabric is lovely and immacuately designed and developed by a 90 year Japanese man!
…Bright Starts’ InGenuity automatic bouncer that features the softest fabric and yes, an ingenius bouncing mechanism that mimics mom’s natural movement.
…Reusable pocket diapers by Happy Heinys that are soft, eco-friendly, economical, and adorably cute! They are even “dad approved”, something my husband will no doubt appreciate when he begins to change BB’s diapers 10 times a day!
…Go GaGa’s gondola diaper bag is ideal for the active, busy, and practical mom and dad. The ergonomic, sleek design holds everything from the included changing pad to a 14″ laptop, and features two insulated side pockets for water or bottles.
…We also loved the piggy knee pads for crawling around the house, made by Bare Bottoms. Audrey, our 11 month old tester loved them so much she tried to escape and make a ‘crawl for it’. Fortunately we just followed the oinks!
Other great finds included the lovely Baby Silk lotions for moms and babies from MD Moms, which were a huge hit with Kitchen Kid’s non-mom legal team! We also liked the made-from-corn silverware and organic baby toys from Dandelion earth friendly goods. I can’t say I look forward to recovering from childbirth, but I am looking forward to wearing the Abdomend to help me get my jeans back on quickly! Kitchen Kid’s art director loved the non-toxic Treasure Dough filled with hidden goodies. The stylish diaper clutch from the Patchwork Bear boasts the most colorful and fun designs. And Baby Audrey just loved playing in Red Mohican’s gym box.
Many, many thanks to all who sent us home with these fantastic goodies!!! Just a few weeks until Baby Barnes arrives, and then I can actually put our awesome gifts to use!
