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. Statistics from 2010 alone show that consumers opened their wallets to the sum of $28.6 billion for organics –– and the trend is only getting stronger. 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.

“Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing up is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.” –– Phyllis Diller
Most people wouldn’t say they enjoy spending almost 10% of their days scrubbing, vacuuming, washing and shoveling up piles of clutter. 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.
The Piggyback Rider™ is the last child carrier that you will ever need to buy. It accommodates children once they are able, but unwilling, to walk. Often weighed down by toddlers on their back or shoulders, we became tired of aching backs and stiff necks. However, we were unwilling to part with those precious moments, forever etched in our memory, bonding us with our children.
The KoalaKin® allows for discreet breastfeeding wherever you are. Its unique shape provides a perfect cover while the opening on the top allows you to connect with your baby. The shoulder straps and pouch support the baby’s weight, keeping her snug against your chest and freeing your hands for extra tasks or complete relaxation. The decision is yours!
-Adjustable straps for different mom and baby sizes
-Ergonomic back support straps help eliminate should, back and arm pain but evenly distributing baby’s weight
One of the greatest challenges new parents face is integrating baby into their active lives. Some of the gear that is supposed to make going out with baby easy, is bulky, heavy and inconvenient. The QuickSmart line of baby gear is designed in Australia by a team of researchers, engineers and designers focused on creating clever award-winning products that are innovative, portable, convenient and compact. QuickSmart meets the world’s strictest safety standards with all the features today’s busy parents need, and nothing they don’t.
A dependable baby carrier is an essential piece of gear that helps parents keep their baby close and secure while they go about their daily activities. Baby carriers also give parents great flexibility, because they are able to take their baby on hikes, walks and other activities, where a stroller would be cumbersome or hard to maneuver. Baby carriers are lightweight and easy to just grab and go. There is one problem though with having just a carrier — there is nowhere for a baby to sit securely if one takes it off. One mother’s desire to simplify her life by combining two useful products in a new and creative way led to the birth of Onya Baby.
Getting baby out of the house for some fresh air, a quick run to the store, or just to visit some friends is necessary for both parent and child. But as new parents are quick to realize, babies need more gear to visit grandma than Sir Edmund Hillary needed to climb Everest! Smart companies have latched onto the idea that stepping out shouldn’t include getting stressed out. Attractive products that are easy to use and make life easier will always be in demand. Innovative brands such as Baby K’tan, Ju-Ju-Be, Innobaby, and Lifefactory are ready and able to make baby’s day out a stress-free affair.
If you can run a marathon you understand owning a business.
A few years ago I was responsible for a team of sales people to help them grow
their businesses and I went to a training to better my ability with developing
a strong sales force. There the leader of the class said, “If you can run a
marathon you understand what it is like to be in sales.” Well prior to that
position I had never done sales nor had I run a marathon so I took her advice
literally and now 5 years later I recently completed my 5th marathon.

Making travels easier for your customers will deliver successful sales for you. The beauty of these products is they’re as useful in a holiday snowstorm as they are on the beach in the summer or a family picnic in the fall. Chances are these family-friendly travel items will fly off the shelf before the first bird tweet of spring, but if not, you’ll find them just as popular as people prepare for summer vacation. Here are some suggestions to get you going: BubbleBum, Toasty Bottle, Car Seat Cinema and PortaChair.
