Sugar and spice and everything nice, that’s what little babies are made of. No one understands this better than the folks behind the Teresa Alecrim brand who started the business back in 1981, in Lisbon, Portugal. Portuguese textile design has long been heralded at the top of the class. Delicate stitchery shows off exquisite designs including kids enjoying a jump rope session, a train, ducks, a friendly bear, a rocking bassinet, a little duck and a galaxy of stars to watch over baby. One design in pink and green proclaims “Bebe”, Spanish for — you guessed it — baby.

Adolescence is filled with changes, challenges and crossroads. Letting girls have some creative freedom with their hair, accessories and clothing choices empowers them and gives them confidence. There are many creative, non-permanent options that allow girls to show off their individuality, but are as easy to change as their moods. Colorful hair wraps, glittery temporary tattoos, jewelry that reflects their interests and fun, funky accessories all help girls to show off their sense of style. Here are some winners for tween changelings: That’s Perfect, Glitter My Tattoo, Darling Charms and New Dimensions Toyz & Trendz.

Parents are seeking and demanding a greater selection of natural, organic products for their children. The essence of the organic and natural movement is purity. Babies and toddlers are extremely susceptible to toxins in their environment, much more so than adults.

Original Baby Company is dedicated to providing original, high-quality children’s products that help meet the demand for a variety of useful organic innovations.

There’s something motivating about a fresh start. That must be why each year we think about what resolutions we will make for the New Year. We list our aspirations and resolve with confidence to realize these goals. For many, just weeks into the new year we fall back into our old ways and the resolutions seem to fade away until the next new year when we once again make resolutions. Even after a few weeks into January, it’s not too late to start anew and resolve to make positive changes. Those who achieve success are the ones who apply a structure to their efforts, assign accountability to the goals, and define measurable milestones to ensure progress is being made.

Consumers are always on the lookout for a simpler, effective way to help make cleaning a snap. Featured on MSNBC, the Lay-n-Go is the must-have time-saving device for households with small children.
