Dads are more involved in parenting than ever before, and there’s also an increase in the number of stay-at-home dads. Companies are taking notice of dads and are marketing products specifically for them. Fathers want to be involved in every step of the parenting process, from pregnancy and beyond. Now, they can do it using products with style, designed just for them! Dads are special, and we are seeing products that let them celebrate from fashionable and functional brands, including BellyMan Clothing, Diaper Dude, Andy & Evan, and DadGear.

Baby Bella Maya introduces a line of stroller blankets intended to compliment their portfolio of car seat covers, infant carrier slip covers and accessories. This new introduction takes their popular plush blankets and makes them even more desirable by cleverly adding ties to the corners. Now the blanket can be attached to strollers, car seats, infant carrier covers, etcetera, the possibilities are endless. Pair this convenience with an ultra soft plush blanket that is extremely comfortable to cuddle up in and you have a winning design.

Bellefit Maternity is a leading medical brand in post-pregnancy girdles and corsets, specializing in postpartum garments to help women recover from both natural birth and c–section. Bellefit post-pregnancy girdles and corsets help keep the uterus firm as it is returning to its pre-pregnancy size. Women experience pain and cramps after birth as the uterus works to achieve this. The pains are often much worse in subsequent pregnancies because the uterus needs to compensate even more for the previous stretching. Bellefit garments help to ease this pain and make birth recovery easier.

Parents may not like showing their own age, but they sure love a chance to show off their little one’s! Liz had a baby son and realized just how fast time can go. She also realized that unless she looked at the date of her photos, she wasn’t always so sure about just how old her child was on some of those special days. Sure, many parents photograph their kid by a handmade sign displaying the age of their little one, but slapping a BabySmiles sticker on an outfit they already own is far more adorable and extremely affordable.

New York, NY – October 26, 2011 – Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) today announced that, as a result of increased support from its donors, it was ranked among the top 2% of all not-for-profits, including major universities, medical centers, hospitals and charities, according to the Chronicle of Philanthropy’s annual “Philanthropy 400” list for 2011.
