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.
Halloween is one of the most celebrated nights of the year, with people all around the world taking part in this spooky night. These days Halloween conjures up images of Kids trick or treating dressed up as little witches, vampires or werewolves.

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.

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 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.

Cindy Cohn understands how much one meaningful gift can affect someone’s life. When she was 11 years old, Cindy received a gift of a shirt with her name spelled out in cute, colorful characters across the front. It quickly became one of her favorite possessions. Decades later, she still owns that shirt, and cites it as the inspiration for her company, Poseys People in Poses. The company, casually known as Poseys, offers a wide selection of keepsake apparel and accessories with unique, personalized touches. These t-shirts, pullover shirts, pillow cases and canvas bags are meant to reflect the hobbies and interests of the owner.
The understanding of waste in our garments is growing, and customers are starting to ask about the origin of their wardrobe. Kallio started as a consciously-minded kidswear brand out of Brooklyn, NY. After working in the fashion industry, Karina Kallio saw firsthand how much waste there was. Roughly 85% of textile waste ends up in landfills, enough material to recreate the Rocky Mountains. Kallio offers a respite from that reality by repurposing men’s shirts into unexpected modern classics that are wearable and delightful. Kallio is all about local, including sourcing high-quality fabrics that are hand cut in their Brooklyn studio.
Looking for that unique children’s gift that will be a favorite for years to come? How about a Butterscotch Blankee?

Each product is available for the customer to choose between numerous design, color and monogramming choices. All products are handmade in the USA and wrapped for gifting like a Butterscotch candy.
Families have so many occasions to celebrate, from birthdays to holidays to weddings. Each milestone is a chance to get together with loved ones and observe rich traditions. Many times this means putting your best foot forward, wearing clothing that suits the day and fits just right. When there are kids involved, this can be a bit of a challenge. Most stores usually carry only a small selection of special occasion wear for children, and the choices don’t always have the style and quality that parents are seeking to find. Enter Mini Treasure Kids, also known as MTK, a line of eye-catching, quality upscale clothing for girls and boys.
