Last week I shared with you my top 3 picks from The Chicago Baby Show. You have no idea how hard that post was to write. There were so many products and vendors at the show that I seriously lost count. Truthfully, it was a blast but because there were so many fantastic companies, it was also a tad overwhelming to pick only my top 3. I realized pretty quickly there were also a handful of baby products that I really thought were outstanding and deserved to be shared with all of you.
So, I present to you five fun baby finds that I think will help you stay organized as a mom.
ZoLi PODS Leakproof Snack Containers
Loving this new snack cup from @zolidays what a cool product! It’s a 3-tiered snack cup for babies and toddlers. It even holds liquid!!! What??? I can’t wait to try it out in my diaper bag! #zolibaby #snacks #toddler #baby #mtchicagolounge #chicagobabyshow #momblogger #mommyblogger #blogger #largefamily

Zoli Pods are awesome because they cut down on extra stuff to pack into your diaper bag. This nifty little device is made up of 3 cups in one. Each cup holds 4 oz of liquid or 1/2 cup of dry food. You can pack baby food, liquids, or dry snacks in these little container, seal it shut, and toss it in the diaper bag. Easy and no mess!
I’m back in the phase where I’m packing a diaper bag for a baby and a toddler and believe me: I just don’t have extra room in my bag. These Zoli Pods are fantastic and help me pretend to stay organized (which is a huge plus)! No, really, these are a mom’s best friend – no more searching for the various bowls of baby’s lunch or snack. Plus these cups are BPA and Phthalate Free.
Luv Bug Sun Protection Blanket
Luv Bug Sun Protection Blanket is a blanket that contains UPF 50+ UV Protection. I could have used this stretchy little blanket this Summer when we took Baby Pip to the beach in Florida. He is very, very fair skinned and he was just slightly too young to use sunscreen. We ended up covering him in swim shirts and hats, but I love this Sun Protection Blanket.
I would have loved to be able to wrap him in this or even to use it while he was napping in his stroller or carseat.
Although, this is awesome for when you are at the beach, pool, or park on a hot Summer day, when I first saw it at The Chicago Baby Show, I was thinking of another fantastic use for it. How great would it be to use this while babywearing? It has a hood sewn in so baby can wear it while he is in a front carrier. This blanket could protect not only his scalp but his neck, back, and arms as well. This should be a staple for the diaper bag – if you keep one in there at all times, you’ll be sure to have it when you really need it!
B Box Bib with Spoon
B Box Bib with Spoon is a nifty little invention that is just perfect for the diaper bag or even to toss under the stroller. It is one of those items that once you see it in person you just know it will help you stay organized as a mom!
This bib actually can be stored inside the zippered portion at the bottom of the bib. In fact, throw the spoon inside the zippered portion and never worry about plastic baggies again!
This even comes with a loop strap so that it can attach to your stroller or diaper bag so you won’t misplace it in the bottom of the bag. The spoon is made out of silicone and is dishwasher safe. Even better – it is PVC and BPA free.
The bib needs to be handwashed or rinsed in the sink and aired dried. I think this is one of those things that should be added to every new mom’s registry.
RaZ Baby Keep-it-Kleen Pacifier
This Raz Baby Keep-it-Kleen silicone pacifier is super cute. What I love even more than its look is how easy it is to keep clean.
The pacifier comes with a built in case that can be closed when storing it in the diaper bag and easily popped open when baby needs to use it.
The best part, however, is how it is self closing anytime it is dropped! Trust me, we all took turns tossing this pacifier on the ground to see if it works and I saw with my own eyes that it truly does!
Pello Luxe Floor Pillow
This Pello Luxe Floor Pillow is an ingenious idea created by a mom for moms. In addition to being super comfy and soft, they have the most adorable combinations of prints and fabric. At the Baby Show, I could see they were made out of high quality fabric: including 100% cotton and luxe brushed poly. What stood out to me was that the colors were vibrant and there were enough patterns that you are bound to find one that goes with your style and nursery decor.
I was able to speak to the owner of the company and I really loved her passion and enthusiasm. This was an idea born out of necessity for an easy place to put baby. There comes a point in a mom’s life, when we realize we don’t need more baby things but we need more quality baby supplies. We need products that serve multiple purposes and are easy to incorporate into our day.
This pillow can be used for young infants all the way through the toddler and childhood years. What starts off as a great place to lay baby when you need to take a shower or do the dishes ends up as a fun accessory you can continue using when your child needs a snugly place to read their newest books. Seriously, these are large enough to be used by kids but what I love is how easy they are to transport around the house. With the built in handles, you can fold this pillow in half to carry anywhere you go.
You can even toss the Pello Luxe Floor Pillow into the washer (and no, you don’ t have to take off any slipcover – the whole thing washes up like new).
In addition, there are loops which encompass it so that you can clip on baby’s favorite toys and teethers. This comfy pillow could easily take the place of a play mat and a baby bouncer. It is even easy to transport in the back of the car for playdates and longer trips!
That’s it for my top 5 Fun Baby Finds. What baby products could you not live without? What baby items help you stay organized as a mom?
