Our mission of keeping you in the know and on the go makes us light up when we stumble upon products like this gem. Babyzen and Air France truly did their best to deliver what its customers need and did a collab that produced a true gift for traveler parents—this chic, urban stroller that’s light on the eyes and hands, while it can easily be folded into a car seat for a cab or cabin baggage for a flight!
The Expo is also a goldmine for nursery chic. Nearly a hundred years ago, the Cantal region in the heart of France became the birthplace of Combelle. All their gorgeous nursery furniture is designed and adapted to meet European Safety standards. Another furniture brand - Micuna - has a strong focus on baby furniture that focuses on both quality and safety. A contemporary favorite, Done by Deer, combines great design, innovation and a daring use of modern colors to make every item outstanding.
Now let’s talk about carriers, or actually this one, since it’s all you’ll ever need. It is designed in a way to keep your baby cool and comfortable year-round for years in a row. The babe can happily fit into the carrier facing out, facing you, on the hip and back, and you can ergonomically adjust the carrier to fit your baby from newborn to toddler (7-45 lbs). Go explore the world together, side by side, or rather chest to back in Ergobaby, or whatever set-up you prefer!
Pampers is an emperor among diapers (and diapers fit for emperor), and now they got even better by employing Japanese technology that does these four fancy-sounding things that will make your baby simply happy: enhance softness (fluff it up), breathability (thanks to a 360 degree breathable top & back), absorbency (through a 3D absorbance structure) and dryness (thanks to 3 cores for better absorption and even distribution).
Stokke was founded in Ålesund, on the west coast of Norway, in 1932 and is like a designer, functional, non-holiday-oriented Santa that distributes state-of-the-art children’s furniture and equipment around the world. Stokke is the place to look if you’re looking for a slick statement piece for a nursery, a fun, clean high chair or beautifully functional strollers and baby carriers, as well as cozy home textiles and other manifestations of Scandinavian design magic!
One new baby—one million new problems. Cross bottle feeding off the list with these complete starter kits that will make bottle feeding easy-breezy right away. The cute kits come in teal and black and contain the following weapons against bacteria and cranky babes: steriliser, bottle warmers, 4x 150ml and 260ml bottle, 6 dispensers, bottle & teat brush, 2 bottle carriers, 2 medium flow teats, 0-6m soother and teat tongs. All products are made 100% with your babe’s health and happiness in mind!
Elvie Trainer is a multi-award-winning piece of innovative biofeedback technology designed to revolutionize pelvic exercises that improve bladder control, enhance intimate health and support postpartum recovery by feasuring force, detecting incorrect contractions, correcting technique, keeping score and being all-around perfect. It was designed with input from over 150 women and rigorously tested to be as functional (waterproof, recommended by over 1000 health and wellness professionals worldwide) discrete, and portable as the app it uses for tracking, and as motivating as a personal trainer!
Mothercare is a British retailer that covers parents on the spectrum from expecting to seasoned with some of the best quality and most innovative products on the market for activities ranging from fun to exhausting. 50 years ago, Mothercare was built with that idea of comprehensiveness at its core, both in terms of their offer and in term of understanding what parenting is about. This is why the experience of shopping with kids is great there too, and why their stores spread across the globe like wildfire!
Mothercare item starting from $30 can be found at the Expo!
Bugaboo is a global brand on a mission to tackle mobility in innovative ways. They combine engineering and aesthetics to design light strollers perfect for your lifestyles, whether they include braving terrains or green lawns. The timeless Bugaboo Cameleon, for example, seamlessly switches between urban and wild landscapes, while the Bugaboo Bee is super-foldable and super-stable at the same time.
Cooking can be time-consuming and sometimes ultimately even less benefiting than we realize. By steam cooking and doing so without supervision (Beaba knows you do not need another kiddo), the food retains as many nutrients and flavors as possible, while you can worry about the other thousand problems (though this meal and bottle feeding are not one (see 6.)!) The cooker allows you to adapt the consistency (smooth, puree, chunks), measure the quantity, stop when it’s finished cooking, easy clean, and blend!
