The Babyhome Dream Cot is Here!

babyhome_dream_cot

With its sleek form, innovative multi-position base, and compact fold, Mom and Dad will love the ease and convenience of this portable cot. Its lightweight build makes it ideal for traveling; but its coolest feature by far is the fact that it can be converted from rocking to stationary by simply flipping the supportive base bar over. When stationary, the base features built-in wheels that make it easy to gently move the cot from room to room. And with its comfy high density mattress, little ones will be sure to catch plenty of zzz’s when they’re inside.

Why it’s a giggle pick: What’s not to love about this convenient little cot? Its travel-friendly construction, multi-position options, and high-quality design all make it one of the best premium baby cots on the market.

The Babyhome Dream Cot in charcoal is exclusively available at giggle and shipping at the end of March. Order now!

Crib Making 101: How to Make a “Healthy” Baby Bed

crib_making_101

You’d think making up your baby’s bed would be approximately the same as making your own. But there are differences, from the things you add to the things you take away.

Probably the biggest difference is what you won’t use on your baby’s bed. No top sheets, no quilt, no pillows. And don’t let that beautiful comforter and pillow sham sold with your crib set fool you; they should only be used for decorative purposes. The only things your baby needs are listed below. Anything else poses a risk of SIDS and suffocation and should be removed anytime the baby is in the crib.

That doesn’t mean you can’t dress up your crib a little, and there are all sorts of styles and colors of linens to choose from. This is a fun, no-pressure decision – and a chance to express your master decorating skills and exceptional taste!

Car Seat 101: Find the One That’s Right For You

graco snugride 35 lx

We might as well go ahead and break it to you, you’ll probably end up having to buy three separate car seats to cover three different sizes of child: an infant seat, a toddler seat, and a booster seat. The only exceptions are if you buy a convertible car seat that covers two stages, allowing you to buy just two seats, or if you have a newer-model car that comes with its own booster seat, thus cutting out one of the purchases.
