Being a parent isn’t easy. It’s a rough job. The time off is nonexistent, the pay stinks and there’s a lot of STUFF that you need to do your job. One of the hardest things about gear for kids is knowing what’s worth buying and what isn’t. In order to help you cut the clutter, I’ve found some amazing items you will want to have.

As an organizer I see a lot of lost puzzle pieces. FlipStir Puzzle is a toy that solves all of that. These puzzles are inside of a container (kind of like the jars you see holding straws at a soda fountain) and the key to solving them is a “stirer”. These puzzles come in different levels and with different designs. They are made in the USA and perfect for travel, at home and everywhere in between. You’ll never lose a piece of this puzzle!
Instead of having a lot of stuffed animals that have little to no meaning to your child, decorate their room with pillows that double as toys. Olive Kids has some super cute pillows that your child can snuggle with, play with and love. My favorite is the Dino Pillow. Brightly colored and super soft, each pillow playfully decorates your child’s room. (I bought this for my nephew for Christmas!)
If you’re looking for a newborn shoe, you can’t get cuter than the pediped Giselle Mary Jane. Not only is it approved by the American Medical Podiatric Association, they are the sweetest shoes ever. They come in lots of styles and colors, but the polka dots are smooch worthy. They are made of real leather and are breathable and soft. Get them in newborn to 24 months.
Win a pair of boys or girls Pediped shoes! (You pick the size and the gender.)
New parents need to find Zen where ever they can. (And it’s not easy to come by.) We’re a big fan of Buddhi Box at The Joyful Organizer and their newest box, the Balasana Box is designed for mom (or dad) and baby. It’s just as awesome as we’ve come to expect. The box included a bright Om Prayer Scarf, a Lotus Necklace, Organic Hand Sanitizer and a headband. For baby there is a tube of Happy Baby Mantra Spot, a Kid’s Yoga Card Desk and the ABC’s for Little Yogis. To top it all off, there’s an adorable holiday ornament. If you know a new parent, this makes a perfect gift. It’s like gifting them a little tranquility during a time that requires a little peace and calm 🙂

MAM Baby has just about everything a new parent needs to sooth their newborn. With everything from teething rings, pacifiers, to clips, Mam has an entire selection of non toxic items designed by dentists. Their items are the perfect combination of soothing baby soothing parents’ peace of mind. Their bottles, pacifiers, and teething rings are designed to allow baby to easily transition from one stage to the next easily and pain free.

I love that Mam sells specialty wipes designed to disinfect and clean anything that may have fallen on the floor. (And we all know that happens more often than we’d like.)

SiliKids creates durable, innovate, and non toxic kid gear for every stage of development. While they have a LOT of products, I wanted to share some of my favorites with you. Their Siliskin Sippy Cup Tops are just what you need in order to turn ANY cup in your cabinet into a sippy cup. Keep the clutter down and instead of having lots of specialty items, have a few multitaskers. Kids love the bright colors and feel as well. Silispoons are going to have everyone wanting to feed themselves. The handles are easy to hold due to these little textured nodules. They stimulate small hands and are easy to manipulate. The soft spoon is also easy to eat from! My very favorite product is the Silibib. It’s a silicone bib designed to capture spills before they hit the ground. When you’re done feeding time, simply wipe down the bib and toss it in the dishwasher! (SO much easier than washing the floor.) SiliKids is giving away a bib, placemat, and sippy cup to one lucky winner! Enter here: a Rafflecopter giveaway
Bazzle Baby Bibs
Bazzle Baby Bibs are one of my favorite new baby products. They are soft and snuggly bibs made to be worn as long as your baby needs them. Yes, they are awesome for meal time, but they also trap drool in between feedings. They draw moisture away from baby’s skin, keeping it and their clothes dry. It’s quick drying too. It’s soft and looks so darn cute. They are available in lots of patterns and colors so you can change them up to match baby’s outfit of the day. They wash well, which every mom loves.
