5 BABY BRANDS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT

Two weekends ago we had the change to check out the Chicago Baby Show at Navy Pier. There were so many amazing brands + products featured. It was fun to see all the new innovations happening and who knew that babies need so much gear! Today I’m sharing our 5 favorite baby brands that you should know about…

1. BLOOM

This company honestly makes the coolest highchairs. We love their sleek designs that pair perfectly with the modern family and home. They easily grow with the baby, as well as adjustable heights, multi-functional capabilities, and fold-away technology. Elle had so much testing them out at the show {hopefully you were able to catch that on Insta Stories}. Also, their cribs and loungers are pretty nice too!

2. HAPPY BABY ORGANICS

We are love this brand! Elle is obsessed with their Organic Teething Wafers which are perfect to bring to restaurants. We just give her one and she can easily feed and entertain herself. We also like their Superfood Puffs. They come in a wide variety of flavors and have helped Elle learn how to pick up pieces of food on her own. I’m excited to have Elle try some of the other cereals, pouches, and snacks they make.

3. LAMAZE

This company makes the cutest and most colorful toys! Elle is absolutely obsessed with them. We already have a few in our collection {seen in this post} and she honestly can’t get enough. From black and white contrasting patterns for visual stimulation to crinkle sounds that spark auditory development, they are packed with signature features to provide babies high quality, engaging toys backed by infant development experts.

4. MONICA + ANDY

This Chicago-based clothing brand makes the cutest clothing with such fun patterns + prints. They have a wide variety styles that are perfect present for all new and expecting moms. When Elle was born we got a lot of gifts from here. Also, they have provide fun music classes at their Lincoln Park store. We love Tunes with Tim!

5. NORTH STATES

When it comes to baby safety, this is the go-to brand. They make a wide range of baby gates and play yards to help keep your kids contained. Once your baby starts crawling {which Elle has}, you realize you need to keep them in a safe contained space. They come in a bunch of fun different colors to go along with the style of your home, and are JPMA certified. We are excited to share more about them soon!

Below are some photos of Elle playing in the park. I can’t believe summer is over! She loves being outside, crawling around, and eating grass… but don’t worry…I don’t let her eat the grass 😉 .
