Winner will be announced on Sept 4th!

What’s in the box:

  • Calm (board book) This soothing board book by child psychologist was written to remind us that the little people in our lives need us to be their calm. It’s a beautiful book that helps kids learn to co-regulate frankly, I think this book would be just as helpful for the person dealing with the child who’s losing it. This is one of the amazing gems that Little Feminist Book Club includes in their younger book subscriptions.
  • Tubby Todd All Over Ointment (3.5 oz) A rich, creamy ointment made from plant-based ingredients like Colloidal Oatmeal, Jojoba Esters and Camellia Leaf Extract to moisturize and soothe sensitive skin naturally.

  • Dreamland Baby Bamboo Pajamas (Slate / 12-18 Months) These ultra-soft, Viscose from Bamboo Pajamas feature LuxeWeave fabric. They are naturally moisture-wicking, gentle on your baby’s delicate skin, and breathable to soothe and comfort your little one. Words cannot describe how soft these things are!

  • Will Ladybug Hug? (board book) As a reluctant hugger, I can’t tell you how much I love this little book. It helps kids understand boundaries and consent with a very simple story. This is one of the books that Little Feminist Book Club includes in their younger book subscriptions.

See why kids are happy, sad, mad/frustrated, surprised, scared, brave, bored, silly, and/or tired with beautiful photographs showing every bit of context (like welcoming a new sibling, falling off a bike, or getting ready to sleep). Every spread shows the same emotion on 10 different children’s faces so family members and educators can demonstrate emotions look different for everyone. Created with neurodiverse children in mind.

  • Loulou Lollipop Stretch Knit Blanket (Moon) This generous blanket is made from a signature blend of ultra-soft and sustainable fabric using TENCEL Lyocell and organic cotton. Lyocell has superior thermal regulating properties, and with just the right amount of stretch, this blanket is perfect for swaddling. (It was used in the Packing Baby for Daycare post and it’s absolutely lovely.)
  • Flexitol happy little bodies (Moisturizing Lotion, Relief Cream and Body Wash and Shampoo) I was sent these from Flexitol’s PR rep. I don’t have anyone who suffers from eczema, so I didn’t want to open them so they are fully sealed. I DID try their Heel Balm, Hand Balm and Lip Balm and, holy shit, they are amazing!! I am a lip balm snob so I don’t say this lightly. It’s inexpensive too!

What’s in the box:

  • ezpz Mini Feeding Set (sage) As a child transitions to toddlerhood, they are ready to start practicing new mealtime milestones like eating with a spoon (scooping) and fork (piercing). With the Mini Feeding Set (the Mini Mat, Mini Spoon and Mini Fork) ezpz provides all of the developmental tools you need for independent mealtime. The thought and innovation that goes into these products is bananas and is worth checking out on the site. This set is one of my go-to shower gifts. (I’m also tossing in a gray mini mat lid that I had knocking around.)
  • ezpz Mini Cup + Straw Training System (sage) Learning to drink from a straw is an important developmental milestone that develops lip rounding and promotes speech development. This Training System teaches toddlers to drink from an open cup & safely learn to use a straw. When these first hit the market they couldn’t keep them in stock because they kept selling out.
  • Copper Pearl Bandana Bibs (Bliss) I have a set of the sold out Bliss Bandana Bibs. No one does soft, beautiful products quite like Copper Pearl. They are also running their Fall Sale now and some items are 80% off!
  • Nest Dry Baby Wipes – I have a little sample pack of these amazing little wipes. They are 100% biodegradable cotton and can be used at mealtime, bath time, household cleaning, as liners for cloth diapers and more. Simply wet with water (or with your own gentle concoction) and wipe away! I love them because most wipes are made with synthetic materials (even the water ones) so they aren’t as kind to the environment. (If you check out Nest or Petite Revery, use the code PC10 to get 10% off.)
  • Can You Find My Robot’s Arm – One morning, a robot wakes up to find he is missing an arm. He and his robo buddy search inside and outside the house, through a garden, an amusement park, a library and even a candy shop, but it’s nowhere to be found. Where can the arm be, and what might make a suitable replacement? A lollipop? A fish bone? How about a fork? This book is lovely with beautiful graphic illustrations.

This looks like so much fun. I would keep these in mind if you need a birthday or holiday gift for a kid 3 – 6 years old because it’s a good size, it’s a decent price (around $25) and it has lots of colorful fun kids would like without being a pain for their parents.
  • Skillmatics Card Game: Guess in 10 Junior Animal Kingdom Use the Guider Tiles to ask up to 10 questions to guess the animal on the game card. Where does the animal live? Does the animal have 4 legs? What does the animal eat? (I nearly kept this for myself. 😂)

  • HALO Ideal Temp Sleep Sack (Navy / Newborn) This best-selling sleepsack is the only swaddle that helps regulate your baby’s temperature. The smart textile absorbs heat, stores it, and then releases it back to your baby, maintaining an ideal temperature and avoiding temperature spikes (that often lead to wakeups). HALO’s signature 3-way swaddle design easily adjusts to fit your baby’s sleep style: arms in, hands-to-face, or one or both arms out. Includes an inverted zipper for easy diaper changes, as well as scratch-free zipper covers.
  • Pregnant Chicken Countdown to Baby Prep Kit This kit is a series of checklists broken down into each task to get you ready to welcome a new baby into your life. The kit is 30 pages and all lists and checklists – no journal, no filler, and no random graphics that use extra paper.
    As one reader said, “It’s one of the best, if not the best, of the guides I’ve seen over the past few months. It is comprehensive but flexible so it reduces anxiety and the feeling that we need to do everything. Some of the other ones we’ve seen have made it seem like everything is a top priority, and it’s quite difficult to hone in on what’s actually important.”
  • Skip Hop Penguin Wobble Toy With soft texture and sweet chime sounds, this cute animal friend is fun for little ones to explore at playtime. Just push him over and watch him waddle and wobble back up (then do it all over again)!
  • Cat and Nat’s Mom Secrets: Coffee-Fueled Confessions from the Mom Trenches Two of my favourite (extra ‘u’ for us!) Canadians, Cat & Nat, wrote another book. This time they go deeper than ever before with outrageous revelations and relatable stories that let every mom know she’s not alone.
  • A Parade of Elephants (Hardcover) Up and down, over and under, through and around . . . five big and brightly colored elephants are on a mission in this picture book for young children by Caldecott Medalist Kevin Henkes.

They would be great camping or for walks at night! They come in sizes 3 months to 2T.
  • ezpz First Foods Set (sage) This set is one of my go-to baby shower gifts. Provides the developmental tools you need for baby’s first foods / drinks and is made from 100% Silicone. These aren’t your average food sets – everything is made with great care with the help of pediatric feeding experts. The mat fits all highchair trays, including the Stokke Tripp Trapp and Boon Flair
  • Pregnant Chicken Stroller Tag (Attack Baby) A few years ago (pre-pandemic) I made some stroller tag printables. They were so popular that I decided to make them into actual tags so they would survive rain, snow and dirty strangers. This is the most popular one so far but I’m set up on Etsy and Shopify if you want to check out the whole line.
  • A Modern Parents’ Guide to Nursery Rhymes This is a really nice book that gives a quick little snippet about where each rhyme came from and how you ‘perform’ these timeless classics and beyond. It features more than 70 poems, lullabies, rounds, and riddles, from classics like “Hey Diddle Diddle,” to newer songs like “The Wheels on the Bus,” too wonderful non-English versus including “Pío, Pío, Pío,” the sweet yet dramatic Chilean ditty about chickens. Plus, exactly how to perform the intricate finger ballet known as “Itsy Bitsy Spider.” Includes downloadable recordings.
  • MAM Comfort Baby Pacifier (green) These pacifiers are 36% lighter than competitive one-piece silicone pacifiers and they are specially designed to help your newborn keep the pacifier in their mouth.

It’s a lovely carrier for that teeny stage where a regular carrier can swallow a newborn and it’s incredibly easy to use.
  • There Are Moms Way Worse Than You: Irrefutable Proof That You Are Indeed a Fantastic Parent This book is hysterical. It’s a great gift for a human mom and, frankly, I’d read this as a bedtime story so kids have a better appreciation for just how good they have it.
  • Carolyn Draws Vinyl Sticker This site has the best cards, pins, notepads, etc. I went to art college with the designer, Carolyn. That is her handwriting on all the designs. Her natural handwriting! I forgive her freakish skills because she helped me get my first job and I love her dogs, Larry and Dave.
  • Green Sprouts Sip & Straw Pocket This is from the new Sprout Ware line which is made from plant-plastic and 100% LFGB, platinum cured silicone. There is no PVC, BPA, BPS, BPF, BFDGE, NOGE or BADGE additives. That’s a lot of letters to say it’s a pretty impressive alternative to traditional petro-plastics. This 8 oz pouch comes with a sippy but is compatible with most wide-neck breast pumps and bottle brands.
  • Green Sprouts Slow Flow Nipples These fit on any of the pouches and have a wide accordion base for increased flexibility to mimic the breast more closely. They also have an off-center nipple orientation to allow for a more natural feeding position.
  • Green Sprouts Food Spouts These dishwasher safe food spouts allow for a free flow of purees, yogurts, and other introductory foods. The top of the spout seals against the travel cap to avoid leaking or spills.
