So, what's new this week?
Doddle & Co.: Pacifiers that "pop when they drop!"
It used to be that a dropped pacifier would spell disaster if there was no way nearby to clean it— until 2017 when Nicki Radzely, an experienced marketer and sales professional, and Janna Badger, an award-winning industrial designer created Doddle & Co.'s Pop pacifiers. The clever design conveniently pops the nipple back into its built-in protective silicone bubble when they take a tumble. In the years since, they've expanded their line and won everything from JPMA's Most Innovative Product Award to a successful Shark Tank deal.
Tushbaby: Hip carrying made comfortable
As any parent can attest, carrying our kids around is hard work. And while there are plenty of super technical carriers on the market, nothing is as simple as hoisting them onto your hip. Determined to find a way to cart her little one that saved her arms and back, founder Tammy Rant prototyped a solution and was instantly bombarded with inquiries from other parents as to where they could buy their own. She launched Tushbaby as a women owned company that not only provides parents with thoughtful solutions but also gives back—TushBabies are donated to a Cerebral Palsy foundation so parents who need them can be provided with one for free.
Joolz: Stylish, modern strollers made sustainably
Amsterdam-based Joolz is committed to creating innovative strollers and accessories, as well as innovative solutions for protecting the earth—like operating from a sustainable factory, using reusable packaging and planting a tree with every product sold. Their ergonomic and stylishly designed strollers are packed with features both drivers and passengers can appreciate—from easy-fold tech to puncture-proof tires—all with a lifetime guarantee.
Not sure where to start? Here's what we're adding to our cart:
The unique Pop pacifiers from Doddle & Co are made to pop back into their protective cases when them tumble to the ground—which means peace of mind for you, mama.
Designed for more active babies, this new version offers more predictability and control of the nipple position for older babies. The pacifiers are made to hold positions when baby's using them and then the nipple can be folded back into a protective bubble to keep it protected and clean.
Teething is a trying time for mamas and babies alike. The colorful and easy-to-grab silicone teethers from Doddle & Co. feature a variety of textures to soothe sore and itchy gums. When they're not cramming them in their mouths, the clever and engaging design uses patented "poppable" bubbles to keep little hands busy. For added convenience and peace of mind, they're totally dishwasher safe!
The memory foam-lined seat provides optimal comfort and hip health for little ones, and the supportive belt (with additional padding, lumbar support and high-quality velcro) evenly distributes baby weight for a more comfortable fit for the wearer. The storage area within the seat holds diapers, wipes and changing essentials so you can leave the diaper bag at home, mama. It's ideal for parents and even grandparents to haul kiddos from 8-44 pounds.
The Joolz Aer stroller is the answer for every parent who has done battle with a bulky, stubborn stroller in a parking lot. With a magical "one hand, one second" folding feature and lightweight construction, it's made to keep you on the move no matter where you're headed. As far as baby is concerned? It's a cozy, cushy and smooth ride that's as great for seeing the world as it is for sleeping through.
Slim and agile without compromising your little one's comfort, the Joolz Hub+ stroller was designed with city living in mind. It features one-hand steering function so you can maneuver through everything from narrow bodega aisles to busy streets and folds compact for easy storage. Added features you'll love include an easy to use 5-point buckle, rotatable bumper bar and oversized shopping basket for those errands.
Want to buy one stroller and one stroller only from your first child to your last? This is it. Designed for every adventure with the ability to adapt as your family grows and changes, the set up comes with both a bassinet and seat attachment. When a new baby arrives, you can easily add a seat or bassinet in any configuration.
