Just returned from the ABC show! It was great. Really fun to see all the new products out there for expecting and new parents. Although BabyBeat is not a carry-all Internet store, there were some products I found very interesting both as a business owner and mother. Although the pregnancy and “new” mom products are a thing of the past for me, I wanted to share some of the products I thought were very original and hip…
For the pregnant mommy:
#1. Bellybuds are funky little stick ’em on speakers that allow you to play music and voices to the womb. The 3.5 mm standard audio jack is compatible with the iPod as well as most other digital audio devices, and the high quality “Y-Splitter” allows the option for simultaneous listening. I liked that these buds were small and stuck right to the skin, no belt required. These would be awesome for that soon-to-be dad that is in the military or is away from mom – simply record a message or song to baby and mom can play it back.
#2. Preggie Popsand Preggie Pop Drops provide a natural way to ease morning sickness. These tasty treats are drug free and contain all natural ingredients. These were recommended both to help with morning sickness during pregnancy and during labor, providing quick calories and energy and helping to alleviate dry mouth.
For the new mommy:
#1. The Pirose by Reno Rose. This is one great nursing cover! Marketed as a stylish and innovative scarf with endless fashion potential, this scarf can be worn as a fashion accessory at any time. But I was definitely more intrigued by the “nursing cover” aspect. This is a product I would have loved to have while nursing! It is so light and comfortable. Great coverage without the bulk of those crazy nursing tents.
#2 Undercover Mama turns your favorite nursing bra into a simple tank top. This strapless top hooks to your favorite nursing bra, making it simple to nurse baby without pulling your shirt up or down.
#3. Amy Michelle diaper bags have always been a favorite of mine. Now they have added many other totes to the line. Everything for every mommy at every stage in life! These bags really keep you and all your baby gear organized – even for those of us that are truly unorganized to the core!
Hope some of you expecting moms and new mommies have the chance to check out some of these super products! Let us know what you think.
