FOR THE NEW MOM + BABY
GRAND PRIZE $250+ Value
FAVORITE CAR BAG
ROVE DIAPER BAG – NOT JUST FOR BABIES!
(keababies.com) Retail: $50
I saw this diaper bag and actually thought of more use for it now with kids 13, 11 and 6, that are shuttled between school, sports and doctors. I got in contact with the brand on behalf of Mile High Mamas and explained how awesome this bag could be, not just for mothers of babies and toddlers. The representative emailed me back, “That’s so funny but it’s true! I feel like a petting zoo with how many snacks I have to carry around for my kiddos, lol! We both agreed this is the perfect neutral-colored, easy-to-clean bag that we would love to bring to any sporting event, dinky dunkers to NCAA football. It holds oodles, cleans well, and is non-intrusive to carry along with the crew.
FAVORITE BABY DISHES
ABIIE ECO DISHES
(abiie.com) Retail: $15 – $21
Abiie, LLC (pronounced like Abbie) has clever baby dishware that is both stylish and functional; i.e. helps produce less mess to clean up! Their brand-new Octopod plates/bowls feature an innovative suction-cup base for a no-slip grip and the highest quality easy-clean, eco-friendly materials. And, they are made with options like bamboo and silicone. Personally, I hang on to these divided dishes and reuse them for art projects and tween snacks as the children outgrow them. Never a need to waste! PS. They have an adjustable, eco-conscious ‘Beyond Junior Y Chair’ that reminds me of our Stokee Trip Trapp chair that I still have from our first child. Good stuff lasts.
FAVORITE CAR COMPANION (besides the dogs)
(myriderz.com) Retail: $14.95-$19.95
Traveling can be tough for children, and according to The Vacationer, about 161 million Americans are planning to travel this holiday season. While the excitement of seeing family and friends or the destination can be exhilarating beforehand, the emotional anxiety and uneasiness settles in once it’s time to officially leave the house and go away from their familiar bed and toys. Thus, the typical road trip meltdown ensues. Problem solved. Riderz stuffed animals are the toys that don’t get left at home because they are the perfect travel buddies that can fit in cup holders anywhere.
My littlest received one of these months ago, and it’s still on the cup holder. He loves to talk to the elephant and I love how it doesn’t need to lay on the bottom of the car floor with all the grime.
FAVORITE CONNECT FROM THE DISCONNECT
ROAR BABY MONITORS
(roaroutside.com) Retail: $149.99
“I’m a father of three and after numerous failed attempts to find a baby monitor to be used during our family camping trips, I decided to build my own. Roar Baby Monitors are fully wireless with a 20+ hour battery life and are rugged enough to survive any camping trip. Our baby monitors do not use Wifi or Bluetooth so they are built to thrive in the remotest of locations. Simply put, our baby monitors allow parents to enjoy the late-night bonfire while knowing their children are sleeping safely in their tents.” — Dad and Owner, Austin De La Cruz
