As a lot of people haven been vaccinated, the expecting moms feel more comfortable to receive the baby shower gifts. Are you invited to attend any friend’s Baby Shower recently? If you have no idea what the mother-to-be needs, let me give you a important Baby Lesson first. It’s super common for babies to have their days and nights mixed up. And while they do need to wake up in the night for feedings, some seem to just be complete night owls. The little one’s internal clock won’t be fully developed until they’re about 5 or 6 months old. When you type “get baby to sleep better” into Google, you’ll get roughly 29,000,000 articles, products, and gimmicks that guarantee “your baby will sleep through the night right away!” Sigh. With so much info out there, you really need someone truly know the answer and give the best solution.
Your friend will find that a gift of pip & grow’s Smitten Baby Box will save their life one day. They help parents easily keep their babies close (and safe) in any room.
(This is a cute Smitten Baby Box I gifted my best friend.
She absolutely loves it!
It’s perfect for her 4 months baby girl.)
safe sleep is simple with the smitten baby box
pip & grow is here to take the guesswork out of safe sleep. Other sleep options, like cribs, just aren’t built for modern family life. No one wants to drag a pack n play around the house while working, attending to older kids, or doing chores.
With Smitten, your baby’s bed is always where you need it.
Smitten Baby Box Highlights:
- Safe. Designed by one of the country’s leading infant safety experts, it meets all pediatric guidelines for safe sleep.
- Easy to use. The Smitten weighs just 2lbs but can carry 100lbs, so you can move it around your home with ease.
- Simple assembly. It takes families an average of 2 minutes to put their baby box together.
- Sleep for 6 months. Play for years. Infants can sleep in the baby box for up to 6 months. Then, convert your Smitten baby box into a toy chest, laundry basket, or imagination station.
- Sustainable. Made from recycled corrugate, just pop it in the recycling bin when you’re done.
- Ethically made. These baby boxes are made in the USA by manufacturing partners who treat their workers well.
pip & grow also has a Mindful Method for Sleep program. Created by infant sleep, infant health, and health communication experts, pip & grow’s two data-driven courses are backed by science and use mindfulness to calm parents and caregivers, which in turn, reduces baby’s stress and improves sleep.
The Mindful Method for Sleep retails for $87 per course or $150 for the duo and is available direct-to-consumer through the company’s website at www.pipandgrow.com/sleep-
pip & Grow Safety Courses
pip & grow safety courses are designed to be used by any caregiver—parents, grandparents, nannies, etc.—in order to help provide you with the information you need to foster a safe environment for your growing family.
Created by pip & grow co-founder and nationally-known child safety expert, Amber Kroeker, these courses are short but impactful, and are full of important safety details, tips, and data.
why safe sleep matters
Sleep-related infant deaths are the most common cause of post-neonatal infant mortality. In 2013, approximately 3,434 infants died unexpectedly. And, nearly half of these deaths were attributed to sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). ‘Unknown’ and ‘accidental suffocation or strangulation in bed’ contributes to the remaining causes. Fortunately, health care provider opinions can strongly influence how parents place their infant to sleep.
Currently, there are several research studies underway in the US and Canada. These studies are examining sleep box use as part of hospital distribution programs. Pip & Grow welcomes partnerships that will further advance the science behind infant sleep boxes.
At pip & grow, they know safe, healthy sleep is important for your family. That’s why they created a one-stop shop to meet your sleep needs, from pregnancy through preschool.

About a year ago, the world was changing quickly as COVID-19 became a huge part of all of our lives. It meant we were all suddenly working remotely, unable to see family or friends, and missing big moments we were looking forward to. My best friend gave birth to her first baby girl last year and I never get a change to visit them, even though we live only 30 minutes away. Finally, this week, all of us have been vaccinated and decided to plan a brunch together. I have been so looking forward to meeting her new baby girl. The time is right at the Saturday before Easter weekend.
A cute Easter Bunny gift will be perfect for her, and this year’s Easter will be her first Easter ever! As she is so little for a toy that she could play with, I chose Blossom Bunny Kimono Romper and Hat Set from Bunnies By The Bay, which is a super lovely baby & young kids brand provides timeless baby gifts with a soft bunny touch just in time for the holidays. From lovies and buddy blankets to adorable stuffed animals, their gifts will be cherished “hareloom” possessions (parents may wish to get multiples in case a lovie gets lost!). An added touch of personalization with an embroidered name makes the gifts even more special.
Blossom Bunny Kimono Romper and Hat Set
Too cute for words, this is the perfect newborn clothing set for the newest little bunny girl in the bunch. This soft, cozy, and convenient cotton knit kimono-style short sleeve romper and the matching cap have unique de-tails for fashion, function, and fun.
Designed in an adorable pattern of our classic Blossom pink bunny and her pal tweet the bluebird with pink flowers on a white background. Topped off with a darling pink floral pattern on a white background to make the contrast trim and ties the perfect dash of adorableness.
The snap crotch makes diaper changes a breeze, and the tie wrap closure makes dressing even the wiggliest of littles a little less daunting. The wrap closure is also made to keep only the softest cotton against the baby’s sensitive healing belly button.
The matching easy-on cap for keeping baby’s head warm, cozy, and cute with knotted ears is a perfect addition to this darling outfit!
A wonderful choice for a “Coming home from the hospital outfit”, or for that first “Sip and See” social event to introduce baby to the world.

SLEEP BAG IN SAPPHIRE 1.0
Are you having trouble putting baby to bed at night? Then you have to try Kyte BABY’s sleep bag. So many moms report that it helps their baby sleep through the night. And since it’s the safest alternative to a blanket in bed, it helps reduce the risk of SIDS too. That’s probably why it was voted the No. 1 Wearable Blanket by The Bump (2019). Kyte BABY’s sleep bag is made of 97% rayon of bamboo so it feels buttery soft and breathable. It features a J-shaped double zipper, which makes it super easy to use. At 1.0 TOG, it’s the ideal warmth year-round.

A thicker tog is recommended during cooler months and a thinner size during warmer months.

The reason that I picked a baby blanket is because it’s very easy, safe and very useful. As a good friend and a good “aunt”, I am sure I will have more and more gifts coming for my best friend’s baby. For the 1st birthday, 2nd birthday, or the first time the baby can walk, Aunt Lulu will have more lovely gifts prepared. Kyte BABY has so many great baby product options and I love their great design and quality. Also they use Bamboo to make their products. Bamboo fibers create an incredibly soft fabric that is both gentle and cozy to the touch. The fabric is breathable, for comfort in any temperature, and absorbs & evaporates humidity better than any other fabric available.
Bamboo, technically a grass rather than a tree, is one of the most sustainable resources on earth, textile or otherwise. Growing up to a yard in a single day, it never requires replanting due to its vast, interconnected root network. Not only does it not require replanting, but it also doesn’t require tractors, fertilizers, or pesticides. Following harvesting, it’s converted into fabric. This fabric, called rayon, is incredibly soft, statistically breathes better than cotton, and is hypoallergenic. This makes it perfect for babies, especially when considering overheating and sensitive skin.
The benefits of using bamboo begin with it being the most sustainable and versatile resource on the planet, as we’ve mentioned. It’s the fastest growing plant in the world, and quickly adapts to different climates. Not only is it earth-friendly, but it is also an environmentally intelligent choice because bamboo minimizes CO2 and generates 35% more oxygen than trees. Bamboo is the best choice for your baby, and for the planet’s future.
