The HALO SleepSack wearable blanket and SleepSack Swaddle replace loose blankets in the crib that can cover baby’s face and interfere with breathing. In addition to sleeping more safely, babies also sleep better in HALO products. Since 2005, the American Academy of Pediatrics has suggested the use of wearable blankets, and currently over 1250 hospitals use HALO products to promote safe sleep.
The new HALO® Bassinest™ Swivel Sleeper, a safer way to put baby to sleep close to mom, has garnered the prestigious JPMA Innovation Award presented at the 2013 ABC Kids Expo. The dual-swivel design of the Bassinest distinguishes the new bassinet as one of the most innovative ways to keep baby close by in his own safe sleep space.
New mothers are sleep deprived. In an effort to get more sleep, they often resort to bringing their babies to bed with them despite warnings by doctors and safe sleep experts that this is unsafe. Doctors and safe sleep professionals all agree that baby should always sleep in his own separate sleep area that is free of blankets and loose bedding. A British Medical Journal Open study confirmed this recently when it found that babies who co-sleep with their parents are five times more likely to die from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS.)
European styling and a deep understanding of comfort merge to form some of the finest baby furniture and products in the world. These virtues are the hallmarks of BabyHome, the Barcelona-based, family-friendly company that has been wowing a global audience since 2005. With numerous awards and nominations, BabyHome has been confirmed as one of the premier suppliers of quality nursery items that have become a customer “want”.
New parents want their babies surrounded by the best, and that is precisely what Bivona & Company provides in its collection of cribs, dressing tables, tall dressers, double dressers, nightstands, hutches, guard rails, bed rails, mattresses, and Hollywood style frames. The centerpieces are the cribs. Designed “in the round” so they are beautiful to look at from all sides, the Dolce Babi line features elegant and timeless pieces. If you want a showpiece for your store, bring in the Bambino Collection. The Cream Frosting color is neutral enough to go with any nursery, but special enough to stand out.
Other than the child’s name, nursery decorating might be the most important part of a baby’s early identity. Retailers looking for a new profit possibility might consider carrying paints in addition to crib bedding and coordinating accessories. Dirt has never looked so clean and chic with the natural pigment of Green Planet Paints. Sweet ones will slumber peacefully with medical grade mattresses and pads by Moonlight Slumber. Creative and chic, Carousel Designs has over 100 options for a natural nursery. Stokke stocks some of the most versatile furniture on the market, including beds, dressers and diaper changing tables that convert as children grow.
“This year’s educational sessions were sponsored by Brixy® and were the best ever,” explains Larry Schur, president of All Baby & Child. The 5th Annual ABC Spring Educational Conference, held in Las Vegas from May 7-9, attracted the largest number of exhibiters and attendees to date for the spring event. “The three networking events were the main attractions, and we received an overwhelming number of positive comments about the quality of the events.” Over 160 retailers attended the conference, representing 301 buyers. Some companies that got in on the action were Kore Design, Ragtales, Béaba and Rubens Barn.
We are excited to announce that registration is now open to manufacturers for the 6th Annual All Baby & Child Spring Educational Conference & Trade Show, being held May 20-22, 2014 in Orlando, Florida!
When you walk into a classroom, you’re likely to notice many things: the way the children and teacher interact, class artwork on the walls, the books and materials available to the kids. In most cases, the classroom furniture and equipment tend to blend into the background, but they play an important role in the education process, particularly in the early school years. ECR4Kids produces high-quality classroom furniture and school supplies geared to children in preschool and elementary school. They offer a wide variety of products to choose from, most of which come in bright, kid-friendly, primary colors.
