This week’s buzz…Traveling with baby: The Shopping Cart Cover

This gallery contains 2 photos.

This has got to be one of the best inventions.

I know that they have been around for sometime ;However, these weren’t available when I had a toddler who thought licking shopping cart handles was a sport.

Luckily he never caught any dreadful disease from our shopping trips, but none-the-less one of these would have made me look a lot less paranoid.

MaliMooBaby.com features these incredible shopping cart covers in this week’s buzz.  For those extra germa-a-phobe mothers (I’m not judging you, trust me) they are machine washable (easy to chuck in the washer the second you get home)!

This week’s buzz…Traveling with baby: The Stroller Blanket

This gallery contains 1 photo.

My husband’s aunt gave us a huge plush stroller blankets when our son was born.  These were extremely rare to find back then.  I am eternally grateful to his aunt for being so thoughtful, as I must admit, this particular blanket was a life saver.  It served many purposes and eventually became the blankie my son would drag everywhere with him. It dried tears, rocked him to sleep, provided him with comfort at every turn. Today the market has baby lovies and little novelty lovies with teddy heads to fulfill that purpose, but there is nothing like that big soft plush baby stroller blanket.

We somehow lost this beloved blankie with our last move.  Our son often asks us if we’re certain this blanket has been lost forever.  He doesn’t stop talking about his “sou-sou baby”.  He misses it and I miss it.  I wish I would have been  more sentimental (and thought of properly storing it as a memory of his toddler hood).  We may be lucky enough to find it in one of the still unopened boxes stored in our attic.

MaliMooBaby.com has a beautiful selection of soft, plush and luxurious stroller blankets to choose from.  From pastels to jewel tones, designer prints to animal prints, MaliMooBaby.com has taken the time to make certain that your baby’s stroller blanket is just right!

This week’s buzz….Sweet and Colorful Dreams…..

This gallery contains 12 photos.

The bedroom has become more than a place for rest.  Today’s bedrooms and nurseries are often multi-functional with sitting areas, play areas and study or reading areas.

Celebrity nurseries have become a  huge influence in prompting parents to put as much thought into their baby’s bedroom theme as in their child’s name.

Mothers often hire interior decorators or spend multiple hours doing online  research in order to find the most original nursery.

Parents want something colourful that can easily transition their child from one phase to the next.

Many baby cribs sold today are convertible, meaning that they can be later used as headboards for their child’s big kid bed.

Changing tables are dressers with an added piece at top that can easily be removed allowing the dresser to be used for their now older child.

Bedding companies are conscious about this trend in versatility and often offer Moses baskets, baby crib bedding and big kid’s bedding in the same themes and colors.

This week’s buzz is about sweet and colorful dreams.  Malimoobaby.com is about colorful bedding for all babies.

Below are some beautiful bedding options available at MaliMooBaby.com.

Purchase a baby crib bedding set or a big kid’s bedding set and receive a gift card in the value of 10%  of your WHOLE order (to put towards your next order with MaliMoo).

Also remember to use the code FreeShip in the discount box for your free shipping (all orders over 150$ qualify)!
