Saving the world is a snap
You already knew your baby was super, and now there’s no need for him to duck into a phone booth to sport the duds that will show the world he is ready to save it. Superhero snapsuits come ready-to-wear for your bitty Batman, wee Wonder Woman and shrimpy Superman. A snap bottom makes for easy diaper changes because even superheroes aren’t born potty-trained. The snapsuits come in sizes up to 24 months and sells for $18.99 at www.thinkgeek.com.
It's in the bag
Let’s not mince words, diapers are disgusting, and (some days more than others) easily qualify as biohazardous waste. All those flowered diaper bags out there might look jaunty and carefree, but they are just trying to put a pretty face on a not-so-pretty part of parenthood. Not the “Biohazard” messenger-style diaper bag. The easily recognizable symbol on the flap of the khaki cotton canvas bag declares loud and clear its purpose. It’s three inner compartments keep cross contamination down too. Find it for $34.99 at www.crazybabyclothing.com.
The bird is the word
What’s keeping Big Sister busy during all of Baby’s doctor’s appointments? Angry Birds, of course. The offbeat game of trajectory that has a home on most parents’ smartphones and appeals to almost anyone with basic motor skills and a pulse is now taking aim an even younger crowd – by swaddling them. Older kids can find common ground with their newborn siblings as they show their love for the Angry Birds by cozying up in a SwaddleDesigns swaddling blanket featuring the fearless flock. The multi-bird style sells for $20.00 at www.swaddledesigns.com/AngryBirdsBaby.
