Poli Sippy Cup
After recent news revealed that some sippy cups on the market were filled with mold and bacteria, it became more important than ever to find a cup that was easy-to-clean and safe. Fortunately, there’s the Poli Sippy Cup. Unlike other sippy cups, the valve comes apart for fast and easy cleaning preventing bacteria and mold build up.  Poli Sippy Cups come in three painted nursery rhyme designs—Humpty Dumpty, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Hey Diddle Diddle—to promote early reading skills. They also have an adjustable flow to transition as little ones age, and a chew-resistant spout for teething babies with sensitive gums. Poli Sippy Cups are 100% safe and are BPA, phthalates, and lead-free. Find out more about how Poli Sippy Cup Gives Spring Cleaning a Whole New Meaning at

Booginhead Pacigrip Pacifier Leash
Dropping a pacifier or sippy cup on the ground, or where your pets might get it is downright annoying. It’s especially frustrating if you’re on the go and baby begins to cry but you’ve already lost your pacifier to a germy fall. Pacipouch, a washable holder, and Pacigrip, a pacifier leash will keep little ones from losing their pacifier even when dropped and can save moms from those clumsy moments. Booginhead’s catalogue features a wide variety of parenting solutions

The Ollie Swaddle
The life-changing Ollie Swaddle was developed by Hindi Zeidman for a baby boy named Oliver, her foster baby, that wasn’t thriving. Zeidman’s experience with infant mental health had acquainted her with the ancient practice of swaddling, so she took to making uniquely soft swaddling blanket for Ollie and all babies. Swaddling assists in reducing spontaneous arousal, helps babies maintain the supine position, reduces the risk of SIDS, and improves neuromuscular development in preemies.
