Who says a newborn can't have style? You can dress up your newborn girl in more than pastel pinks and frilly pajamas. This zebra print swaddle says "Look out, world! Here I come!" The soft fabric wings hug baby close and stay securely fastened and readjust as baby grows for a perfect fit. The leg pouch pops open for easy diaper changes so there's no need to unwrap baby's arms. She stays comfy and secure the whole time. Your baby will love this Swaddle more than you.

Baby carriers have come a long way from being big and clunky metal objects. Now you can carry your little one close to your heart in a soft fabric designed to be comfortable and pretty.

It's so lightweight you can carry it anywhere you need it. That's pretty parent friendly.

Fall is here and many parts of the country are experiencing the wonderful display of the trees' changing colors. You can share this amazing show with your infant or toddler, as long as you have the right carrier. This baby carrier is a neutral gray color, perfect for a boy or a girl. Best of all there is an LED light included if you want to stroll around during dusk. If the outdoors are not for you, no problem! This carrier is ideal for baby wearing around the house too.

There's a lot to like about this baby carrier. It's made from eco friendly organic cotton which means it's safe for baby and the earth. You can also choose from four carry positions: front carry (facing in and facing out), back carry, and hip carry. As your baby grows you can choose the option that works best. It also works great if you are nursing and helps keep your baby close for bonding. It's made in the USA and completely machine washable. Don't worry about your baby outgrowing this carrier too soon, the maximum capacity is up to 35 pounds.

If you have been anywhere near a mall these last few weeks, you know that retailers didn't even wait for Halloween before setting up the holiday decorations. It reminds me of a story a friend told me about having a child in each hand and one in a baby carrier while shopping one year. YIKES!! Some of us can relate to that one. If you find yourself in that position, you will want a reliable carrier like this one from Bjorn. This original design is easy to buckle on and it has wide, padded shoulder straps to distribute weight evenly for comfortable carrying. For peace of mind, all fabrics are Oeko Tex Class 1 certified material. That means they are guaranteed harmless to infants. That's one less thing to worry about as you maneuver your way through those crowds.

BabyBjorn is one of the most reliable names in baby carriers. You can't go wrong with this classic. This original design has all the buckles are in the front which allows for easy adjustment. The wide straps distribute the weight evenly to make carrying your baby less cumbersome, which leaves two hands free for what ever else you can manage.

I admit I never felt this confident about a wrap when my kids were infants. I just didn't trust them, although I knew plenty of moms who swore they were the best invention ever. They are a great alternative to the heavily weighted buckle covered carriers. Even better, your newborn is tucked up close to you, providing them with maximum comfort. This one will hold your child safely up to age two.

Keep your baby close to you with the versatile Moby Baby Wrap. This wrap long enough to secure a snug fit, but does not have too much extra fabric between you and your baby. You can place your baby facing you or facing out. You can even place the baby securely on your back when you need to have your hands free.

Traveling through an airport is challenging enough these days, add an over-excited toddler to the mix and it's enough to send any parent to the airport bar. Make your trip a little easier with the Go-Go Kidz Travelmate. It attaches easily to most toddler seats and gives you peace of mind that your toddler is safe at your side. It is lightweight and maneuvers easily for quick turns. Since the FAA recommends that children under 40 pounds use a child restraint, you'll have one less item to check.

My middle son was by far the most difficult to get to sleep. My husband eventually became used to the midnight trips in the car but I just never warmed up to the idea. We tried putting him in his seat on the clothes dryer while it was running, but I was terrified the seat would jiggle off the top. Nothing seemed to work. I would have loved to try the Graco Sweetpeace Newborn Soothing Center. It has everything a newborn needs to feel safe and calm. There is a swaddling blanket to keep your baby warm. The vibrating feature gives your baby the feeling of safety similar to the womb. That's less dangerous than the clothes dryer!! Once your baby is settled down, both you and your baby can enjoy the Sweetpeace.
