Baby Products: Life Savers, Must-Haves and Nursey Staples
The Bugaboo Fox stroller is the ultimate comfort stroller! With the best driving performance yet, my little Ryder loves his smooth ride wherever we go. It’s strong and sturdy, yet lightweight and compact for easy lifting and stress-free storage at home and on the go.
This super stylish and chic stroller has power steering that makes navigating corners, busy streets and tight spaces a breeze. Ryder and I can zip in and out and all around town with ease.
From birth to toddler The Bugaboo Fox is the comfort stroller that’s ready to go from day one. Use the bassinet from birth, attach your car seat with integrated click-and-go adapters, and then transition the seat position when your child is ready to sit up and see the world. Definitely top of the line when it comes to style, comfort, design and quality… we LOVE our Bugaboo Fox

The 4moms mamaRoo 4 infant seat bounces up and down and sways from side to side, just like parents do when comforting their babies. Infact, it’s the only infant seat that replicates natural motions of parents. It features five unique motions and five speed options for a total of 25 different combinations.
At first Ryder was not having it with the Mama Roo. He would fuss and cry, but I refused to give up on this amazing product that I heard such great things about. Each session Ryder got more comfortable and now he LOVES his Mama Roo! It soothes my little man with four different built-in sounds that mimic the womb. You can also connect any MP3 device to it. The Mama Roo 4 seat also offers a full recline to allow your baby to lie back and relax or sit up and play.
Interactive & reversible toy balls keep my little man entertained with a rattle, mirror and crinkle ball. Letting this mama get stuff done.

The Deluxe+ dock is the ultimate Stage 1 docking station and definitely one of my absolute favorite things that I purchased for my munchkin. Ryder loves his multifunctional and multitasking DockATot Deluxe+. It offers a safe and comfy spot that lets my baby rest, lounge, play, cuddle, do tummy time and get diaper changes. Deluxe+ docks are lightweight and portable, allowing for easy travel. I purchased the marble print, but they offer plenty of covers to match your mood, room and style.
Designed with love in Sweden and made in Europe. All filling materials are sourced from world-leading suppliers with hygienic and non-toxic properties.
Ideal for Co-Sleeping/Bed Sharing
With rounded sides, the DockATot helps create a barrier between baby and parents to give your child their own cozy space. When used in an adult bed properly, DockATot offers a better way to co-sleep.
Reinventing the Womb
DockATot has been designed to offer a snug and soothing environment for babies. Many babies prefer a nurturing, cozy surrounding that mimics the mother’s womb.
DockATot is made in the EU with OEKO-TEX certified fabrics that do not harbor heat. This ensures that the micro-climate (space directly affecting their surroundings) is the best possible for baby.
Facilitates Tummy Time
DockATot is the ideal spot to have tummy time with your little one. When baby is awake and ready to play with you, the rounded sides help to prop up your baby when placed under his/her arms. Tummy time can help babies develop neck strength and motor skills. It is important to closely supervise your baby during tummy time.
One of the most amazing aspects of the DockATot is its ability to serve so many purposes. When you purchase a DockATot, you’re actually getting a resting, bonding, playing (with the addition of toy accessories), nursing and changing product in one stylish package. DockATot is one of the most used baby items and provides easy portability with a compact design that makes it easy to move around the house or anywhere you travel.
The DockATot is an ideal travel companion for moms with babies and toddlers, as it maintains familiarity in a new environment. We offer stylish and functional Travel Bags to help keep your dock protected while on the go.
What would I do without this beautiful basket bassinet. Made from Elephant Grass and Dyes this Moses basket bassinet is beautifully handcrafted for newborns. Ryder will soon outgrow his basket :(, but it was good why it lasted. He still has some time thank god because thats where he sleeps so soundly at night. I highly recommend this stylish basket bassinet to all the moms out there.
They are called “Nature’s Bassinets”, as they are completely handmade with dried natural elephant grass. Elephant grass is similar to hardened hay. Each basket takes several days to weave from start to finish. Don’t forget about the rocking stand you can purchase separately. This is great for those late night fusses and feedings to rock baby back to his peaceful sleep.
If their is anything you should splurge on, it’s a good breast pump. It will just make that breastfeeding/pumping journey so much easier for you.
Loved by moms and lactation consultants worldwide, the Spectra S1Plus soft blue electric breast pump is designed to bring confidence and comfort to every moment of the breastfeeding journey. The S1 which is portable and rechargeable, is also quiet and discreet for soothing pumping, and yet weighs only 3 lbs. The Founder, Heidi Humphries, insisted on the quietest motor available for the S1Plus, which when in the “massage mode” simulates the natural suckling of baby. Spectra Baby spent years developing features for the S1Plus like “back flow protection” to keep your breast milk from harmful bacteria. The adjustable suction levels provide a more natural flow of milk.
- Single or Double Pump capability
- Vacuum suction up to L12
- 270 mmHg
- Weighs only 3 lbs
- Built in night-light
- LCD screen
- ( 2 ) Years Warranty on pump
