When you’re young, you are vaguely aware of the strong influences binding your family together. When you get older, you understand the vital role each family member plays. As the definitions of family change and evolve in modern society, the ties that bind families together remain strong. What family wouldn’t want to boast about its bonds? Companies like Hip Together are filling a need to promote the love and strength that exists in the bonds of family relationships.
A mother-to-be has a lot on her mind. To help her prepare for as stress-free a hospital experience as possible, stock the original Hospital “Go” Bags from Due Date Bags. The Labor Queen Hospital “Go” Bag is stocked with delivery essentials a lady loves (and needs) including a pretty nursing cami; nursing pads; toiletries for her hospital stay; thank you cards; a “shop closed for six week”’ panty; and items for the new arrival, including a “Take Me Home” one-piece, hat and bib. They also offer other bags worth their due. One contains a stash for older siblings, including a coloring book, crayons and a gift for their new brother or sister. Dad’s bag holds a Labor Coach T-shirt and hat and celebratory chocolate bars.

They launched into select stores in mid October and will roll out wider in the coming months.
When a baby is in the process of arriving, all attention focuses — as it should — on Mom. But Dad, often forced to hang out for a long time in whatever he was wearing when the hospital beckoned, is an important player too. With DaddyScrubs®, a father-to-be gets the ideal labor-and-delivery outfit so he can be comfortable while supporting proud Mama every step of the way. DaddyScrubs is a perfect gift for a new father on his first Father’s Day or a man preparing to welcome a new son or daughter. “Daddy” is writ large on the front chest of the top, with an even bigger, bolder “I’m the Daddy” declaration on back.

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.
