by: Jennifer Kirkpatrick
You’re exhausted. You ache all over. You haven’t slept
in what feels like days. Sounds like you’ve just completed the Tour de
France or climbed Mount Everest. No, you’re “just” a Mom.
With all that is demanded of moms they need as many products
as possible that save them time and energy. The latest and greatest baby
products are created with the overextended mom in mind they make your life
easier – or at least give you one less thing to worry about!
1. Baby Carriers – More commonly known as “baby slings”,
baby carriers are no longer cumbersome pieces of equipment that are bulky
and uncomfortable. Reminiscent of the swaths of fabric worn by tribal women,
today’s baby carriers are easy to use and very comfortable. They make a
great alternative to strollers and are perfect for keeping a baby calm
by creating a “womb effect”. And the added bonus is that you can have your
hands free to do other things.
2. Nursing Necklaces – Nursing babies pinch and pull at
mom while they’re feeding. Ouch! To avoid this problem opt for a Nursing
Necklaces (also called Breastfeeding Necklaces). Available in every style
imaginable – from bright and colorful to stylish – every mom can find one
that works for her.
3. Baby Sleep Sacks – Tens of thousands of European parents
consider Baby Sleep Sacks a must have – and they’re finally catching on
in North America. Essentially “wearable blankets”, sleep sacks provide
baby with a safe alternative to sheets, blankets, and comforters. Because
they replace all three, baby sleep sacks eliminate the risk that your baby
may become entangled under a loose cover.
4. Shopping Cart Covers – Few places are there as many
germs as in shopping carts. In fact one University of Arizona study found
that shopping carts are about as contaminated with germs as public restrooms.
Protect your little one and take a load off your mind with a shopping cart
cover. A good one will cover the entire cart and can be put in or taken
out with one hand. Available in a variety of fabrics – ranging from babyish
to fashionable – they can also be used in public highchairs, public strollers
and swing sets.
5. Stroller Blankets –The corner of a blanket running
along the ground through mud puddles and slush. Baby’s toes or feet hanging
out. Sound familiar? Traditional blankets rarely work well in strollers
because they’re the wrong shape a size. Stroller blankets overcome these
problems by creating a cocoon for your little one to snuggle into.
6. Car Seat Blankets – Like stroller blankets, car seat
blankets keep baby completely covered so mom doesn’t need to worry about
baby staying warm. For newborns in a detachable carrier, they even eliminate
the need for a snowsuit because they are available in such warm materials.
As baby grows they can continue to be used as extra warmth on those really
7. Lullaby CDs – Nothing tests a mom’s patience more than
a baby that won’t sleep. Today’s variety of lullaby CDs created specifically
to lull babies to sleep are the perfect solution. Programmed from specific
knowledge about what brings on sleep in babies, they are a quick and easy
solution for the baby that refuses to fall asleep.
8. Healing Herbal Products – Just like the herbal remedies
that are available for adults, there are also new products that use the
healing power of herbs to soothe and heal baby. Available in a variety
of products, from all natural lotions and diaper creams to sachets of herbs
that do everything from promote healing to induce sleep.
