Pacify Your Baby Naturally!

Going green? Go all the way! Eco Piggy has a new all natural pacifier for babies.

The Eco Piggy pacifier is made of pure rubber from the rubber tree (Hevea Brasiliensi). Besides being 100% natural, PVC and phtalate-free, the protein that may provoke a latex allergy is removed from the rubber mass used for these pacifiers, so there is also no risk of latex allergy. The resulting pacifier is naturally softer than silicone and even makes a wonderful teether.

This natural pacifier is a great way for eco-conscience moms to soothe their fussy babies. The clear "coca cola" brown color of the pacifier is natural looking and a nice change from standard pastels.

Creating a Modern Nursery with Crib Bedding

Crib bedding with bold graphics and a fresh colors can add a modern feel to your baby nursery.

Baby bedding designers such as Super Natural Baby, Pixel Organics, Baby Star and Gus & Max make unique crib bedding sets that are comfortable, practical and stylish. When decorating your nursery, the first step should be choosing your crib set. This will set the theme for your nursery and allow you to pick complementary colors for the walls and accessories.

Some hot colors for modern nurseries are:

- Orange as in the Gus & Max Mod Cube Crib Set or the Pixel Organics Lions, Tigers and Kittens Baby Bedding. Mixing orange with hot pink adds a spicy touch to a baby girl's room. For this combo try the Super Natural Baby Crib Set in Bird Orange/Pink or the Lucy in the Sky with Diamond's Crib Set.

- Mixing traditional colors such as pink or baby blue with chocolate brown can also give a crib set a modern feel. Try the Baby Star Flutter Pink or Flutter Blue Baby Bedding to achieve this look.

- Bright yellow combined with modern graphics in the Super Natural Baby Urban Crib Bedding Set and the Daisy Crib Set bring a cheerful sunny look to your nursery.

A comfortable and chic modern nursery will be a wonderful and calming place to spend time with your new baby.

Stowers Swaddling Blankets

Any new parent can tell you that swaddling an infant will help to calm a baby and get them to sleep longer. What new parent doesn't want that?

Stowers Swaddling Blankets help to make swaddling a little easier for tired parents. The super soft lightweight cotton flannel blankets have a pocket at the feet and velcro at the top. This makes the tricky technique of swaddling your baby easy! The Stowers Swaddler was created by a labor/delivery, post-partum, newborn nursery nurse with extensive knowledge of the fine art of swaddling. She created the swaddler to make it simple for anyone to learn.

Swaddling reminds infants of the womb, which helps to calm and comfort even fussy babies. Swaddling also helps to increase the duration of sleep, by minimizing the "startle" reflex that can cause a baby to jerk his arms and wake himself up.

Check out all the styles available at and get some rest!

Fall Maternity Clothes!

Fall is here and it is the perfect time to update your maternity wardrobe with some stylish and warm maternity clothes.
Layers are key to staying comfortable in the unpredictable weather. Try pairing a long sleeve maternity tee with a lightweight maternity jacket and a pair of great fitting maternity jeans for a stylish and versatile outfit. Another good bet is a long sleeve maternity hoody over a maternity tank top.

Maternity dresses can be paired with boots or tights to welcome the cooler weather. For a truly versatile dress, try the Japanese Weekend 3-in-1 maternity dress/crop top/skirt.

Don't forget to also pamper your skin with a great belly oil or belly butter. Pregnancy skin care is especially important in the fall and winter when skin can become chapped and itchy.

Baby Clothes with International Flair!

Il Cocco di Mamma makes some super cute and soft baby tees with international sayings printed on them.

I recently checked out the soft, baby blue "bello" lap tee. (Bello is Italian for handsome.) What an adorable shirt for a baby boy. They also make a pink version with "bella" (beautiful) printed on the front.

My favorite has to be the "cielo" organic baby onesie. (Cielo is Spanish for Heaven Sent.) The organic European cotton is extremely soft and the Spanish saying is so sweet for a new baby. The front of the onesie features blue clouds around the word "cielo" and printed on the back of the onesie is the English translation. Stylish, sophisticated and organic. What more could a mom ask for?

New Spa-like Belly Casting Kit

Every pregnant women should make an imprint of her bulging belly to keep as a reminder of this amazing time. Belly casts make great nursery room artwork and keepsakes. I hung my own in my son's nursery with a simple white ribbon.

Belly Vita makes an interesting casting kit that I look forward to trying out next time I'm pregnant. It is touted as more of a spa experience than just another messy casting kit. The Belly Vita Belly Imprint is made with a single piece of sculpting fabric, instead of the strips most use. The best part is that the kit also includes an aromatherapy Balancing Belly Oil to be massaged on your belly as the first step in the casting process. The belly oil contains lavender, neroli, frankincense, palmarosa and rosewood. Besides smelling great, these essential oils are said to help prevent stretch marks and are safe for pregnancy. Plus, you can use the extra oil for a foot massage (something a very pregnant woman would certainly appreciate).

Marcia Cross Loves Being A Mom!

In People magazine's newest issue, Marci Cross talks about being a mom and loving every minute of it.

Marcia Cross, 45, and her husband Tom Mahoney welcomed their twin daughters, Eden and Savannah, on February 20th. Marcia told People, "I wanted to be a member of that club so badly, and now I'm in and it's so much better than I even imagined." She even enjoys the predictable routine. "I'll tell you my routine – it's really exciting. I feed, I burp, I change diapers, I pump. And then I have a tiny window of time to myself."

Cross and Mahoney, 49, struggled to become parents. "We did in vitro a week after we got married. We were supposed to go to Greece and Paris and have this fancy honeymoon, and I said, 'Let's stay put and see if we can't give this baby a chance.' " Marcia became pregnant with twins, but the struggle didn't end there. Cross developed preeclampsia, a disorder that raises blood pressure and threatens both mother and baby, four weeks before her due date. The doctors quickly scheduled a cesarean section and she gave birth to Savannah, 6 lbs. 7 oz., and Eden, 5 lbs. 10 oz. Marcia exclaimed, "I had over 12 lbs. of baby in me!"

Now that Cross is home with the twins, she is mastering the art of breast feeding two babies at once. She also isn't totally ruling out the possibility of having more children. "I'm probably done...but I certainly can see why people keep going. I'm in heaven right now."

Congratulations Marcia and Tom!

Jennifer Garner on Motherhood!

Jennifer Garner, while promoting her new film Catch and Release, spoke of how motherhood has changed her life.

Jennifer, 34, talked about life with her new baby, 1 year old Violet, with husband Ben Affleck, 34. Garner stated, "Having a baby fills your life in such a way that no matter what you're doing, there's something bigger. I've just been in heaven being with her the past year." Jennifer also said that she calls her mom now and says, "You know all the dinners you made that I said 'No' to and went off and ate peanut butter? I'm sorry. I get it. I slaved over roasting this, and (Violet) goes, 'No, no, no!' "

Garner also stated that she was rocking Violet and she was fascinated by the light hitting the ceiling. Jennifer realized that slowing down and going at her pace was such a gift, "God, for the past five years, I haven't stopped to look at light on the ceiling for (one) second."

Garner also spoke of losing her baby weight. She said it took a long time and she just wasn't motivated. Once she got on the treadmill and stopped eating so much, croissants, bagels, muffins - "all the good stuff," the weight finally came off.

Jennifer stated that Ben Affleck does a good job with Violet. "There's nothing more emotional than seeing your partner – the man you love – with your baby at any time: the first time, the second, yesterday, today. There's nothing more beautiful. "
