Baby Goods from Mom 2.0



It is endlessly interesting to me to see how the products-for-baby market has changed in the last decade. Every year there are loads of pretty new things to try (and lots of gimmicky things we can all ignore). At Mom 2.0, a handful of excellent, new-to-me baby lines crossed my path. Check it.




Weil baby, who makes sleek, colorful (bpa-free!) baby bottles gave me a charming basket full of baby soaps and baby shampoos and baby lotions by Erbaviva. They smell fresh and clean, they're totally organic, and I love the little illustrations on each container. (If I can get myself to the post office, I know the perfect person to send this basket-full-of-loveliness to.)



The sweet sisters of Sama Baby sent me home with a yellow-lotus print dress in Betty's size. Made of organic materials (like everything in the Sama Baby line). As soon as it's even a little warm, you can bet Betty will want to wear that dress every single day.



Aden & Anais had a booth in the Mom 2.0 expo. They were giving attendees generously-sized cotton muslin swaddling wraps in pretty prints. Plus a lovely little accompanying book. It's a wonderful thing to wrap up a baby in something cozy — and these really are the perfect size. The bright, star prints made me smile.

See what I mean? Great stuff. What about you? Do you have any baby products on your list to try?

I'm dying to try out the muslin swaddling wraps. I think I'm going to by a pack for my next baby. Man, I wish I could get all that sweet swag.

I love the Aden and Anais wraps too. They put those dinky, cotton receiving blankets to shame!! We bought a pack when we had out second daughter (who's now almost 2!) and thought they were the greatest thing ever!

The Aden & Anais muslin swaddle blankets are the best! Perfect for a summer baby (or anytime if you're in a warm climate) and great for covering you while you nurse!

I'm expecting my third in May, so I'm looking for a good baby sling/wrap, a good front carrier, and a nursing cover-up. I have an almost 3-year-old boy, and an 18-month-old girl, so carrying the new baby handsfree will be pretty essential I think. Any suggestions for brands that aren't ridiculously expensive, but still good quality?

I have the Aden and Anais swaddle blankets for our baby girl, pending arrival any day. They were highly recommended, so I know they're going to be great.

Erbaviva is divine - I got a raft of it when my oldest son was born and it just smells so purely delicious. I also love Noodle and Boo products and am a sentimental fool for Aveeno oatmeal baby wash with the pale blue cap. It makes little angel hair smell just like heaven itself. Love your blog Gabrielle - it is a bright spot for me every day.

I love A&A blankets! I give them as gifts to all my girlfriends. Actually, I love a lot of the A&A products because they get softer as you wash them!

I have heard such great things about A&A when I have another baby I will totally buy some!
Personally, I think you should check out my Etsy shop, I have some great items for babies, including Ring Slings. I personally can not have a baby and not have a sling :)
