Breastfeeding & Baby Products – News & New Stuff from ABC

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @sarahwellsbags

I photographed these products with permission at the ABC Expo. I was not asked to write, nor was I compensated for this post, and I paid my own way to the show. All opinions are my own. In addition to cloth diapers and cloth diaper accessories, there were lots of great products for mom & baby at the ABC Kids Expo.

Sarah Wells Bags has a new “Annie” breast pump bag made of man made leather, available in dazzling blue or black, and retailing for $165.

I’m partial to the “Lizzy” bag which is made of nylon and has a bargain price of $89.99. The bags can expand or snap down to be super versatile for everything. I think these would make a great cloth diaper bag!

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @sarahwellsbags

Sarah is somewhat local to me (Northern Virginia) so I was really happy to meet her!

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @mamamilkmakers & @undercover_mama

Undercover Mama, MilkMakers, Hadley Stilwell & Juno Blu teamed up with Bamboobies for the ultimate pregnant & nursing mama booth.

In addition to their much loved nursing pads, Bamboobies showed me their nursing shawl, nipple balm, belly butter and hot/cold soothing pillows.

New products include their nursing bra and camisole.

I like the way the nursing cami has structure and support without a shelf bra or underwire, and has adjustable straps.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @Halosleepsack bassinest

Halo has a new bassinest with one fewer pocket, without the electronics and with a $20 lower price point.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 15 @halosleepsack #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers halosleepsack #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers halosleepsack

They also have cute new prints for their sleep sacks!

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers Arm's Reach @cosleeper #cosleeping

The Arm’s Reach booth was busy when I went by, but I spied a few co-sleepers that were new to me.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers Arm's Reach @cosleeper #cosleeping

It looks like they have new mini, contemporary and sleigh styles.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 39 @bumkins

Bumkins has lots of great new prints for their bibs, snack bags and wet bags.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 40 @bumkins #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 41 @bumkins #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 42 @bumkins

The Disney prints were new earlier this year, but I missed them somehow!

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 43 @bumkins
#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 44 @bumkins #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 45 @bumkins

New products include teethers, place mats and reusable ice packs.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers SP Bang

SPBang‘s snack bags aren’t quite like any others I’ve seen.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers SP Bang

They are made of FDA food safe santoprene and are dishwasher safe & made in the USA.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport

Thinkbaby gave me a tour of their feeding accessories which include a wide array of bottles, straw cups and sippies in both BPA free plastic and stainless steel. You can switch from bottle to sippy to straw without abruptly changing the look & feel of the cup for your child. Best of all (in my book) the straws are replaceable. (Woo hoo!)

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport
#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport

They also have a great line of snack & food storage containers.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers @thinkbaby_sport

Their sunscreen is rated #1 on EWG, and they have a baby skincare line (lotion, body wash/shampoo & bubble bath) that is available in a giftable set.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 143 @summerinfant #carseatsafety coat

This Summer Infant display demonstrates that coats are not safe in a car seat.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 144 @summerinfant #carseatsafety coat #ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 145 @summerinfant #carseatsafety coat

Their car seat coat is a cross between a coat and a poncho, and snaps up the back so you can buckle the harness beneath it with nothing under baby’s back. With a hood but no sleeves, it it probably a good choice for climates without bitter-cold winters. It will be available in the tan with the bear hood, a pink fleece that is reversible to animal print, and a sherpa puffer. The MSRP will be $29.99 and it should be available in late October. (Check out Cozywoggle if you need a heavier coat that is car seat safe.)

Boba unveiled their co-branded carrier with the Baby Guy NYC and it’s a great looking carrier. I like the subtle and chic color/pattern, orange accents and hashtag. This will be available for purchase on Monday September 15th.

The Eyla’s Imports booth was enormous and I was able to chat with Matthieu from Healing Hazel, got a tour of all the great EcoVessel products they distribute, and checked out all the new Zen Rocks designs.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 149 @eylasimports @love_zen_rocks

I think my favorites may be the “elements” designs.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 150 @eylasimports @love_zen_rocks

The company is now distributing Egg Kids products (somebody give that poor display kid a spine, amirite?!)

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 151 @eylasimports @eggkids

The line has fun characters who each have their own personality and story. The Swedish brand has clothing, accessories, toys and even bedding with the characters.

#ABCKids14 via @chgdiapers 152 @eylasimports @eggkids

Eyla’s sent me home with some Egg Kids temporary tattoos for my kids, and they love the characters.

What do you think of all these non-cloth diaper new releases?

    Oh, and those Halo bassinets have been on my mind ever since I saw them!!! I didn’t realize the price was lowered; I still think it’s pricy! 🙂

    Wow , so much to see!!! I really like is the blue “Annie” bag. Even though back is timeless, I prefer a pop of color! I am a soon to be first time mom, and didn’t know that coats are not safe in a car seat. I’m loving the SPBang’s snack bags!! Thanks!
