Top 10 Baby Products of 2009

FacebookTwitterPinterestAmazon Wish ListShare

We have had the privilege of reviewing some amazing and a few not so amazing products in 2009! Most of our reviews were positive and we have a few that are at the top of our list. These are baby products that we think EVERY parent should own! Were all about quality here at “Deal”ectible Mommies and we’ve found that buying a higher quality item really saves you money in the long run. Our favorite baby products of 2009 are high quality products that will last you through multiple children and our picks include companies that stand behind their products!

So without further ado… Here’s our picks for the Top Baby Products in 2009:

Micralite Toro Stroller - Black Micralite Toro Stroller with US distribution by Scandinavian Child – This stroller was just rated #1 Luxury Stroller on the market, yet it’s lightweight enough to use through toddlerhood and beyond, eliminating the need to purchase an umbrella stroller.  With it’s impeccable quality, amazing features and a company that truly stands behind it’s name, there’s no doubt that this stroller would make our list of Best Baby Products of 2009! Read our Review!

Ergo Baby Carrier Black with Camel Lining Ergobaby Carrier – We’ve had the chance to try many different carriers here at “Deal”ectible Mommies, but nothing took the cake like the ErgoBaby Carrier!  With an infant insert you can use this carrier from birth to 6 mons. and continue to use this carrier up to 90 lbs!  This carrier can be worn on the front or back and offers multiple adjustments to ensure that mom and dad are comfy. In our humble opinion, the ErgoBaby Carrier is the most comfortable carrier on the market and they have a company that stands behind their brand!  Read our review!

Bumkins Keith Haring Waterproof Superbib, 3 Pack Bumkins Superbibs – These handy not-so little bibs are an item we use multiple times a day.  Their large enough to cover a toddler’s entire top half and feature a catch-all pocket, eliminating the eating time mess for mom and dad!  Offered in a wide range of designs and an amazing price point, Bumkins Superbibs made it on our list of Top Baby Products in 2009! Read our review!

Smaller by See Kai Run Infant/Toddler Jake Trainer,Cream/Brown,12-18 Months (US Toddler 5-5.5 M) Smaller by See Kai Run – Quite honestly the cutest baby shoes you’ll ever lay your eyes on.  Smaller by See Kai Run are flexible and small enough that they won’t make baby look like he has Flintstone’s feet!  See Kai Run offers impeccable quality all wrapped in a small package!  Read our Review!

Svan High Chairs from Scandinavian Child with Infant Kit and Cushion, Chocolate Cushion with Espresso Wood Svan High Chair with US distribution by Scandinavian Child – We have more than alot to say about this high chair!  Svan combines a gorgeous design with a quality chair that will stay in your home far beyond babyhood.  This versatile high chair offers multiple height positions for growing babies and turns into a regular chair when babies done with high chairs!  Offered in a variety of colors to match any decor, the Svan High Chair is the only high chair you’ll ever need to buy! Read our review!

gDiapers Little gPants, 2 Pack, Small Assorted Colors gDiapers – The hybrid diaper of the future!  If your leery about going cloth but still want to remain green, gDiapers offer parents a new hybrid option.  gDiapers consist of a cloth diaper cover and flushable..yes I did say flushable…inserts!  When babies done with their business, you just tear the side, toss in the potty, give it a little swish with the included swish stick and flush…that’s it!  Refills are now available at national retailers, making gDiapering convenient for every family!  Read our review!

Chic&Cozy Blanket Bag, Fuchsia Bloom ChicTots Chic & Cozy Blanket Bag – this cute little number is a tote and a blanket all in one.  You can load babies toys into this fun bag and when you arrive at the play date you can lay the bag out and it turns into a blanket/playmat.  Convenient? We think so!  Read our review!

Hooter Hider Nursing Cover, Soft Spot Bebe Au Lait Nursing Cover – Let’s face it, people really do mind when you flop it all out at the mall.  I don’t really mind, but I like to be courteous to others.  Bebe Au Lait’s nursing covers allow you to discreetly nurse anytime, anywhere and do it in style.  They offer a large array of designs and fabric choices and this is one accessory we don’t leave the house without! Read our review!

Sprout Foods – Fresh food, no crap..plainly put!  They have taken the best fruits and vegetables and blended them for you and placed them in one, small convenient package that’s easily accessible and oh-                     so-convenient! Join the Sprout Food club to have these little numbers delivered right to your door! Read our review!

Thermofocus 5-in-1 Non Contact Thermometer Thermofocus 5-in-1 non-contact Thermometer – This thermometer is simply amazing!  There’s no need to touch your baby when their sleeping.  Just point the infared light at the middle of their forehead and you have an accurate reading in seconds!  We tested this bad boy against many other leading thermometers and it was accurate to a point of a degree.  You can even test bath water, nursery temperature and just about anything else you can think of.  This is the one and only thermometer you’ll ever need! Read our review!

Well, there you have it… our picks for the Top 10 Baby Products in 2009!  Feel free to read our reviews on all of the products mentioned above and ask any questions you may have!  We hope we’ve made a few of your product decisions a little bit easier.  There are many more amazing products that we did not mention within this post and many that we would like to have mentioned.  We want to thank all of the amazing companies and sponsors we have had the chance to work with in 2009 and we look forward to testing new products in 2010!

Patient Style Review & Giveaway

My mom and sister-in-law were recently scheduled and hospitalized for Hysterectomy’s. Turns out they were scheduled on the same day, at the same hospital, with the same doctor and one right after the other! Needless to say I spent the entire day at the hospital and thankfully everything went beautifully with both surgeries!

They were both feeling a little uneasy about the impending surgeries and I knew there wasn’t much I could do other than offer support and a little something I found to make them feel better! Patient Style is a new company that has just hit the scene, offering custom gowns, anti-microbial socks, nursing covers, gift baskets and more. Their philosophy?  To improve the patient experience and they sure do!

Patient Style was more than surprised by our upcoming double surgeries and kindly sent us 2 custom hospital gowns for my mom and sis-in-law!  We were surprised to see how custom these gowns are.  They feature ribbon around the neck line decorative ties along the snap down back. They were the talk of the hospital!  The nurses, the doctors, the visitors…everyone was talking about how amazing these gowns were.  Guess what that did?  It raised their spirits, put a smile on their face, and allowed for a connection to be made with other individuals, thus allowing their bodies to heal more quickly! 

Patient Style offers many different products to improve the patient experience, but here’s why WE think Patient Style Rocks:

- They offer custom gowns for both men and women, an entire line of microbial products, nursing covers and more in a number of designs to suit just about everyone’s personality
- Patient Style was the talk of the hospital! Everyone who came in the room, including the nurses were in awe of Patient Style’s designer gowns and wanted to know how they could get their hands on these one-of-a-kind products.
- The gowns are comfy…made of 100% cotton and incorporate back snaps and shoulder snaps make getting this gown on and off a breeze and breastfeeding easily accessible!
- Patient Style gowns eliminate you from wearing those yucky hospital-owned gowns..yuck, yuck and yuck!
- They offer all the products you’ll need for an upcoming hospital stay or birth in one convenient online location.
- Patient Style products are made with the patient in mind and that’s really what it’s all about!

For expecting mama’s, the custom maternity gowns are so much fun! As a mom who’s had two c-sections, I know first hand how “blech” women can feel after surgery. Not only did I feel like I had been through the ringer (well I had), but I just felt grosse. There’s no style that comes with standard hospital gowns and I would have paid just about any amount of money to have something fun and stylish to raise my spirits and make me feel a little better during my hospital stay!

Patient Style offers an amazing array of products for patients (both men and women) and expecting mama’s! With their amazing designs, comfortable fabrics and large array of products all wrapped up in one convenient online location, Patient Style gets two thumbs up from us here at “Deal”ectible Mommies!
