No mess, no stress. Happy Mat is a suction plate and place mat all in one. This product will make your meal and snack times a breeze. Happy Mat is made of heavy duty silicone and is dishwasher friendly.

Wimmer Ferguson Mirror
Wimmer-Fergusen has dedicated over 40 years to the research of baby visual development. And as expected, this mirror is a multiple award-winning product. On one side, is an unbreakable, hard-coated polycarbonate mirror; the other side is adorned with a highly stimulating black and white images, designed to promote visual activity. This seemingly simple mirror is essential to developing a baby’s sense of self and doubles nicely as a perceptual development tool.
Aden and Anais Swaddling blankets
Aden and Anais swaddling blankets are made of 100 per cent cotton muslin. Your baby will never overheat in this especially soft, light and breathable material. These blankets are large enough for the perfect swaddle and are also versatile enough as stroller and nursing blankets, as well as a changing table covers and burp clothes. I used these blankets for everything from burn cloths to sunshade on stroller and blankets.
The Ergo 360 carrier was designed by a chiropractor and maximizes comfort for both baby and parent. The Ergo 360 gives parents the option of four comfortable and ergonomic ways to wear baby: front-inward, front outward, hip and back carry positions. Suddenly, your arms are free and you don’t feel the pain in your back and shoulders anymore. Most importantly, the Ergo 360 keeps your baby in a natural position: frog-legged with curved spine.
