Before you take off for grandma’s with your baby and or toddler that is constantly on the go, or before you running off to your next baby shower be sure to check these three must-have products out! They will keep your little sweeties or future sweeties occupied and happy and you or their parents less stressed.
What? Paper for a baby? You must be kidding!
Nope. “Babies love crunching paper. Baby Paper is a unique toy, that in its simplicity has become a hit with babies and parents,” said Stacy Dechnik who noted that moms who come the baby boutique, “Hugs from Heaven” buy by the handful!
Small enough for tiny fingers to grasp, Baby Paper is made of a soft material that has a paper sound when touched. It is machine washable and comes all different colors. Inventor, Sari Wiaz, said that she came up with the idea for the product when she was out with her two kids, giving them paper and napkins to play with. Her friend who got fabric and some materials that would make the crunching noise made the first Baby Paper.
“I love it! And my niece’s daughter loves it! Babies love crunching things and this is perfect! I bought one for my new granddaughter and another for my grandson to be! I need one for me too!” laughed Karen Smith, a grandma who said that the paper is addictive “like popping bubble wrap!”

Bibs for Baby Bottles
Ok, now you are really asking for it you crazy lady!
No, I am not nuts. There is actually something out there that is a bib for bottles called Bunchees! What is it? It is a cloth ring that goes around the baby bottle’s ring area has “bib parts that you can turn to keep the bottle from dripping all over,’ explains Dechnik. These products are great for keeping you and your little dribbler clean! They are made by Ritzy Bitzy whose founder, Monica, came up with the idea as noted on their website, http://ritzybitzy.com/.
“My baby boys were so messy that every time they ate from their baby bottle, their bib would became so soaked that I had to literally change their outfit after each feeding. The messy bottle-feeding not only left them soaked but myself as well. My oldest son’s cheeks and chin became red and chapped from the wetness and constant dribble coming out of the corners of his mouth while he ate that would run down his cheeks, chin and down into his neck. At bath time, it was a chore to wash his neck folds, where formula and messy dribble would collect and become crusty–ick!” she said going on to explain how she looked for a product to solve the problem, but could not find one out there for sale.
Now, how do you think these will make my life or a future mommies life better?
