Experts agree that babies should sleep on their backs for the first several months of life in order to reduce the chances of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). While back sleeping helps prevent a major danger it can sometimes lead to or exacerbate a lesser-known but significant problem. Some infants suffer from what is commonly called Flat Head Syndrome. Enter the Tortle Head Repositioning Beanie, a unique type of head-wear that’s made specifically to counteract Flat Head Syndrome and other minor to moderate head positioning problems in infants.

Teeth are milestone markers for parents and kids alike. Painful coming in and sometimes coming out, we all know brushing and flossing is crucial to keeping pain away in between. Anyone who has tried to teach a wriggling toddler how to properly swish and spit knows a lot more toothpaste ends up in gullets than in the sink. Thankfully that worry is lessened with natural toothpastes such as Jack N’ Jill. Made in Melbourne, Australia starting in 1949, the toothpaste is 100% safe for young children. Flavors like banana, blackcurrant, blueberry, raspberry and strawberry make for fruity fun.

The chaotic mind state that follows the birth of a baby can make it difficult for parents to keep any semblance of a regular schedule. While technology has given us products to make many parts of life easier and more efficient, it hasn’t done much to ease the effects of “baby brain”…. until now. The Pocket Nanny by Itzbeen Innovated, Inc. is an electronic device that helps parents keep track of daily baby care tasks. This compact, lightweight gadget combines multiple features to create an all-in-one time management system.

The fall leaves are blowing down the busy streets of New York and there’s anticipation in the air. Even in the brief lull between the summer tourist season and the explosive activity of the holidays, there’s still plenty to see and do, including ENK’s Children’s Club show. Between October 19th and 21st, the show will be bringing some of the world’s best children’s products and companies to the Jacob Javits Center. Coolibar, DeSalitto, Izzy & Ferd, and Junee Jr. have all earned their place at this year’s show. We wish them the best of luck and encourage you to check out the wonderful products they have to offer.

There are plenty of occasions when parents are in the market for good quality dress wear for their sons, but it isn’t always very easy to find. Most stores are awash in pretty dresses and accessories for girls through all seasons, but many of them have a relatively meager selection of dress shirts, vests and slacks for boys. Even when these items can be found, they’re often the same old same old, without many interesting touches to make them stand out from the crowd. Andy & Evan, Tailor Vintage, Dsquared2 Kids, and Cufflinks, Inc. are all about those defining touches that make an outfit special. These companies have what it takes to make boys into instant gentlemen.

Everybody likes to hear inspirational stories about a small business owner’s rise to success. An everyday Joe or Jane has an idea that turns into a full-fledged enterprise with thousands if not millions of units sold each year. While these upbeat overviews make readers feel good, they often don’t tell the whole story of the climb to the top, which can include failed prototypes, brutal schedules, financial difficulties, and all the other not-so-pretty aspects of being a new business owner. Sometimes, an entrepreneur finds that her business has become dormant and needs a complete re-start. That was the case for the owner of children’s clothing company Plum Pudding.
