Tragedy struck the Leonard family in 2005 when Monica endured a stillbirth of her daughter Molly. As a pediatric nurse, she knew she had done “everything right” in her pregnancy. Leonard started to research and found a study done on cord blood which identified over 120 toxins found in newborn baby cord blood. These toxins are passed through several generations and originate in many chemicals found in homes. Leonard said, “It was a starting point for me, I began doing research and finding out what products were safe, and what products were not.” Thus she created Molly’s Suds, an all-natural, toxin-free detergent line.

Doesn’t it seem like there are more pregnant mamas this year than usual? Good thing there are more maternity and nursing shopping prospects than ever before. Gone are the days of frumpy maternity clothes, sub-par therapy products, and unappealing style options. Now new moms and pregnant ladies can look as good as ever, but more importantly, feel beautiful. Stores can compile multiple products together to create the ultimate gift basket for baby showers or hospital care packages. These four remarkable brands help empower and support pregnant and postpartum women with their innovative products: Bamboobies, Pelv-Ice, You! Lingerie, and Milky Way.
There’s a new way to look at diaper bags. Up to now, no company had delved into the world of microbes (aka icky germs) or anti-stick coatings, but that’s changed due to this dynamic duo of new licensed diaper bags: Ju-Ju-Be has begun a collaboration with Hello Kitty, the iconic brand everyone adores. The new Kitty collection features signature diaper bag designs in a range of shapes with –– retailers take note –– a custom print; bow zipper pulls; and super-cute, functional hidden surprises such as embroidery details inside each bag. Invite shoppers to peer inside the bag to get a look at the “hidden” three apples, a nod to Hello Kitty who herself is three apples tall and weighs five apples.
British-born clothing designer and motherhood educator Rosie Pope is at the top of the momprenuer pyramid, running an enterprise that includes maternity clothing stores on both coasts, as well as a maternity concierge service, a book and a television show. And she does it all while looking great. While this energetic mother of four is a renaissance woman, her first passion was fashion. She got her start working in the popular Pea in a Pod maternity stores, and was inspired to try her hand at a design business of her own. The result is Rosie Pope Maternity, a collection of classy, chic and up-to-the-minute styles made for pregnant and nursing women.
In 2009, Marjorie Stiegler recognized that pregnant athletes were suffering from a huge void in the market. With few choices of maternity activewear, and poor design among the choices that did exist, she launched For Two Fitness. When her apparel hit the market, pregnant “fitness-istas” were finally being served in a completely new way with high performance, supportive athletic wear. The line never sacrifices quality to fashion, and has flattering and flexible fit details that truly last the entire pregnancy and beyond.
Clothes shopping should be fun for customers. It’s a great feeling to find new looks and fresh pieces that express one’s fashion sense and are perfect for an occasion. Well-fitting maternity clothes can contribute to this body confidence as well. High-quality maternity clothing helps a pregnant woman show off her best assets and gives her the same style benefits she has with everyday clothes. Maternal America is a good example of the quality and style many women look for in maternity wear. This large company is based in Los Angeles but has subsidiaries in New York, Atlanta and Chicago.
When your customers go to a baby shower, they don’t want to just give a good gift, they want to give a GREAT gift; one that the expectant parents will use, love and remember well into the future. It helps to be informed about which baby gifts are hot and trending right now. Mini Maniacs, Odette Williams, Wry Baby and Jaxxwear offer products that are modern, functional, super-cute, and sure to delight.
Baby showers are usually a lot of fun for the mom-to-be. She’s given lots of great gifts and loving support that will help her get started on the road to motherhood. But for those who go to a lot of baby showers, it’s easy for the routine of similar foods and games to get a bit stale. The woman who is appointed as “activities director” for a baby shower has a challenging task; she’s expected to come up with interesting games and activities to get the participants involved and keep them entertained. Get help from Baby 4-1-1 — a board game that tests participants on how much they know about pregnancy, childbirth, and caring for a newborn.
Although there are many trials in life, “waiting patiently” for something big to happen is surely in the running for the top ten. Many moms will agree that counting down to when baby is due might be one of the most joyous, yet suspenseful times in a mom’s life. Kim Weiner’s Windows & Wishes brings moms a calendar that celebrates the last month of pregnancy. The Baby Countdown Calendar was birthed from the idea that moms would like a truly different gift to mark the time until baby’s arrival. What better way to celebrate the last month than with uplifting encouragement designed to inspire the expectant?
When it comes to sharing from the heart, a hand-written note beats email every time. It establishes that the writer feels strongly enough about you to set aside time to put thoughts into words, etching them onto a blank page with endless possibilities. Stacey Valle and Gina Stock, co-founders of Buzzable, LLC, understand how deep the written word speaks to the heart. Their fillable Buzzable Baby Book is the perfect way to provide friends, families, and loved ones the chance to express themselves on that most important of occasions: the baby shower.
