Hatch Rest Sound Machine Review: "We love everything about it! It is so nice that you can preset scheduled times for the machine to be on and even customize the color, sound, and volume levels. I appreciate being able to control it from my phone. Like if my kids are sleeping late and I want them to keep sleeping, I can just go into the app and make sure the machine does not turn off when scheduled, but instead keeps running. Little things like that. All the sound options are very soothing and are great quality audio. I am so glad we finally got the Rest!"

Binnie Retractable Pacifier

Inspired by moms everywhere, the Binnie retractable pacifier was created to be an alternative to the traditional plastic or rubber pacifier that offers no protection from germs or debris. The patent-pending Binnie Pacifier is a pacifier that retracts into itself so it stays clean & is more hygienic with a retractable nipple. No more placing a pacifier on a dirty table or fumbling around trying to find the case. Just pull the ring and the pacifier retracts into its own storage compartment! The Binnie is made with medical-grade silicone that mimics the shape and feel of the breast, quickly soothing your child with a familiar feel. Your baby can still enjoy the benefits of breastfeeding and avoid nipple confusion with our extra soft tip and lightweight design. Ventilation holes offer breathability for your baby’s skin and prevent skin rashes or irritations.

Why use a pacifier? Pacifiers can help babies cope with discomfort and distress increasing their ability to self-soothe. Studies have also shown that pacifiers can reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

embé Stage 2 Arms In and Out Swaddle

The embé Transitional swaddles (for babies 3-6 months & 12-18 lbs) are perfect for babies who are transitioning out of a swaddle but aren’t quite ready for safe sleep with a blanket yet! The Stage 2 Swaddle also features our arms in & arms out options: arms in, 1 arm out, or both arms out! Our heart-shaped leg pouch supports proper hip health and leg development and has been designated "Hip-Healthy" by the International Hip Dysplasia Institute. Our No rise neckline collar keeps fabric securely in place. And with 3 adjustable swaddle lengths (small - medium - large), ensures the swaddle is never too long and eliminates loose fabric that can rise up over the baby's face. 

Why are arms in and arms out swaddles good for babies? Once babies hit the stage of being ready to roll over, swaddling them with their arms in can cause a risk of the baby rolling over and suffocating themselves. The ability for babies legs to be out of the swaddle allows for babies to have the option to cool down as well as wear hip harnesses while the baby is swaddled making it more convenient for babies with hip dysplasia. 

Transitional Swaddle Review: "Our 2 month  old has become a Swaddle houdini and this swaddle, besides being so pretty, has become our savior he can now sleep comfy again not being bothered by his arms that move constantly. We love love love it!" - Haidy

Why use a teether? Teething is a very difficult stage for most babies. Temperatures often rise and the discomfort level is high. Teethers are soothing for a baby's gums which eases some of the pain.
