Babymel London – a Modern Diaper Bag

March 26th, 2010

300AMANDABLACKANDWHITEFLORA Today I’m dishing on a fantastic line of diaper bags for modern parents from Babymel! As you know my daughter Lola was born in December, and ever since the ONLY bag I’ve been carrying has been my BabyMel diaper bag in the Amanda printed design. This bag is not big, bulky and overpowering, it’s just well designed and the ideal size. I love the functionality coupled with the gorgeous styling. I actually feel chic when I carry it!

The Amanda is equipped with:
Two insulated zip bottle pockets
Three large outer pockets
Internal elasticated large storage pockets
Zipped pocket to keep valuables
Wipe clean lining
Wipe clean outer printed fabric
An adjustable strollerstrap;
Changing mat;
Dimensions: H 26cm W 44cm D 12cm

For modern Moms on the go, each Babymel bag has a handy stroller strap (patent pending). The strap is easy to use, and a real life saver if your stroller is packed to the rafters with stuff. It’s designed to take your diaper bag from shoulder to stroller in the blink of an eye, and it works!

The company was founded in London in 2006 by the cofounders of StorkSak and it’s goal is to offer attractive and functional diaper bags at a fantastic price.

With this new Puj 100 Tub Challenge, parents can see for themselves how easy bathing a baby with the Puj Tub can be.

The Puj Tub cradles the baby in a cushiony, non-absorbent and non-slip closed cell foam that is also PVC and BPA free. And once the bath is done, the Puj Tub dries fast and folds flat. tub-right-2

Pippalily – sling one on

September 21st, 2009

pipalily_home1 Our house is all a-flutter with preparations for our new baby girl arriving in late December. It’s a wild race to find the perfect accessories, products and things to make life for mommy more comfortable and stylish too. I was needing to track down a gorgeous and functional baby sling so keep my hands free and busy with Boutique Cafe, then luckily ran into the sweetest slings from a cool company called Pippalily (guess what? They are Canadian too!)

If you’ve never “worn” a baby before, with Pippalily you’re in for a real treat! They have a wide selection of the most yummy looking fabrics to suit almost every moms personal style. I opted for the Burgundy Gothic Rose, and I can’t tell you how gorgeous it is! The great thing about Pippalily’s slings are how totally easy they are to use, its one step simple to get that baby in there and have your arms free to keep on movin’, but if you have any trouble never-fear because Pippalily has instructional videos on how to strap their slings on. gift

One word of advice I have is to make sure you take the time to measure properly before you order your sling. Everyone’s body is different and in order to get a good fit it’s best to take a moment to get accurate sizing. Pippalily makes that easy too, with simple instructions on how to measure your body for your pretty new sling.
An additional feature that I enjoyed was the matching Toy Strap Pippalily sent along for me to try. I adored that it matches my gorgeous sling, and keeps baby’s soother or toys secured where you want them. No worries about losing that precious soother or dropping it on the floor. You can quickly strap it to your diaper bag, stroller or sling and take it along for the ride. I love that!

Having practical products to assist you with parenting is a real bonus, and the fact that Pippalily makes you feel so great and stylin’ while using them is even better! Sling on your own Pippalily, and enjoy special closeness with your little bundle of joy. – Daria

Retro Week Revisits – Ubi Change Table

June 12th, 2008

It’s Retro Week on the Daily Dish! We’re posting some of our fave past reviews to share with you. Discover (or re-discover) great products that we’re still loving and talking about years later! Welcome to Retro week.

Ubi Baby Let’s face it, changing diapers is not the most glamorous or exciting job in the world. That’s why I’m so happy to have discovered the Ubi changing table. The Ubi to me, is like the swiss army knife of change tables due to it’s many handy features!

I was sent the Deluxe Ubi Table with natural wood base and “lime coco beach” cover. This swanky model also sports the most awesome diaper dispenser right where you need it, under the baby. The diapers push down into a spring loaded system that keeps several diaper right within reach. I loved that aspect to the table, it just makes so much sense that you shouldn’t have to stretch and reach to find a diaper – it should be right at your fingertips whenever you need it. The thing I loved most about the Ubi is the fastener strips that quickly and easily hold the diaper in place. It was so simple to change diapers with the fastener strips, just pull up a diaper from the dispenser and stretch the tabs up to attach on the strip. They hold firm despite any wiggles from your little one and the diaper change is stress free. Read the rest of this entry »
