Items tagged “Diapering”

Too often for parents, changing a baby’s diaper can be more like a wrestling match. Babies wriggle and squirm and sometimes try to put their hands where you wish they wouldn’t. Or they cry and fuss because they find it uncomfortable to be uncovered.

Itzy Ritzy is proud to announce the recent news that top Canadian company Fulton Sales will begin distributing Itzy Ritzy products effective immediately.

Fall Into Line for Spring 2013 and Immediate Buys

Fall means spring for children’s buyers looking forward to the new year. Most will get a jump on the buying at the ABC Kids Expo in Louisville, KY on October 14th-17th, as the largest show in the nation for juvenile product manufacturers and retailers celebrates its 10th anniversary! The event showcases everything from ABC to Z for families and children from maternity through the early school years.

As retailers, it’s hard to ignore the green revolution. More young families are demanding natural, organic or sulfate-free products. Nowhere has “clean and green” been more in demand than in cleaning products. New parents need the strongest stuff on the market to clean up the messes, but want those products to be safe and gentle as well. It isn’t easy for retailers to wade through the growing waters of products marked “natural” or “organic,” so we’ve helped out a bit and feature a few favorite brands: BuggyLOVE, Better Life, Dapple and Fresh Wave.

What do Jessica Alba, Brooke Anderson and Jessica Simpson all have in common? They subscribe to the “cute tushie” philosophy: baby butts don’t have to be boring. Whether parents choose disposables, reusables or a combination of both for diaper changes, fashion has hit the bottom. Today’s diaper covers are available in a large variety of colors, designs and embellishments, from fun and whacky to dressy and casual, to coordinate both diaper and outfit changes. A few of our favorite brands include collections from RuffleButts, Mint, Cutey Booty, and Ganz.

Icky Baby has been creating “Fashionable Solutions to Life’s Icky Situations” for 10 years and has recently introduced a new line of Icky Eco Disposables, a collection of simple products that are sure to make life with sticky, messy babies and toddlers much easier. Icky Baby understands that messes are a part of everyday life with kids and that parents often don’t have the energy to meticulously spot clean every item of clothing and accessory. Icky products have modern style and are disposable, a rare combination in the current children’s market. Taking it one step further, the disposable items are also biodegradable, making them eco-friendly.

For basics that go the extra mile, necessories (necessary accessories) from Bella Tunno top the list of must-haves, but it wasn’t always this way. In 2005, founder Michelle Tunno Buelow was a new mom, frustrated because she wanted items she couldn’t find — necessities with panache. With a small goal and a big heart, Tunno Buelow began by selling home-made burp cloths out of her house. Word spread, her brand found wings and other items including Bella Bibs, Binker Pacifier Clips and Diaper Ditties were added. Today, Bella Tunno proudly offers merchants over 400 product styles and options.

The need for a functional, high quality, good-fitting diaper constructed of comfortable, natural fibers is what propelled one mother to take action. Monkey Doodlez did not begin with executives around a boardroom table, but with one mother at a dining room table. Founder Cheryl Yakem named the company Monkey Doodlez because it was the nickname of her oldest daughter as a toddler, and it just seemed to fit the product line. Monkey Doodlez quickly outgrew the dining room table and their products can now be found at nearly 500 retailers around the world.

One of many things that can boggle the minds of new parents is the amount of stuff that one little baby can bring into their lives. It gets to the point that getting out of the house with baby can have parents feeling like they are packing for a weekend away. Cool Wazoo by Cheerful Child is a multifunctional product that can help to lighten that load. Initially designed to protect children from the blistering temperatures of playground bucket swing seats, Cool Wazoo can also be utilized as a car seat cover, shopping cart cover, restaurant high chair cover, and changing pad.
