So Family attended the Evenflo Car Seat event and was introduced to their new ProComfort Protection series and their SureSafe System line of car seats. After talking to the Evenflo rep and getting an up close and personal look and feel of the new car seats I was impressed. It feels good to know that Evenflo is taking the time out to listen to the needs of parents that use car seats daily. After reviewing the benefits of the new lines of car seats, with my sister-in-law, I’m eager to share it with all of you.
My sister in-law is a new mom of an 8 week old, by the way my niece is so cute. One of her biggest concerns has already been the comfort of Baby S while in the car seat. She’s had to really work on keep her turning around and car seat adjusting to a minimum in order to stay safe while driving. The Evenflo ProComfort series was designed with this exact reason in mind. They asked Target what moms felt they were lacking in car seat design and they received an answer. COMFORT was one of the biggest concerns of moms. It’s important for moms to keep their eyes on the road when driving and of course every child deserves to be comfortable for long and short rides. Check out some of the benefits of the ProComfort Protection series below.
Another challenge that parents face is the installation of the car seat. Have you ever incorrectly installed a car seat? I know I have. Evenflo recognizes this challenge that’s faced by many families, so they have introduced the new SureSafe System. This new system reduces incorrect installation by 50%. Review some of the benefits of this system below. To learn more about all of the Evelflo Car Seats please visit their website, www.eveflo.com.

If you know a new mom or an expecting one, then I have some products that should be on their list of baby essentials to get. Munchkin introduced their new innovative Latch bottle and the Mbaby Onester Layette collection at a special afternoon launch party hosted by Momtrends. Nicole Feliciano, of Momtrends, invited a room full of New York City mommies and babies to an afternoon with Munchkin. I attended the event to score all of the news about their new products for baby and mom. There was a breastfeeding panel, a mommy/baby photo booth and plenty of time to try out the new Latch baby bottle, for those mommies who bought their little peanuts with them. There was also a hands on peak at the new Mbaby Onester Layette baby collection. I love taking you into the events, so watch my event recap below.
One of the highlights of the afternoon was the panel of influential woman sharing their experiences with breastfeeding. They were open and not afraid to share their ups and downs with breastfeeding, which I appreciated. As wannabe-mommy I’m gearing up for breastfeeding and all of the fun that comes along with it (just kidding I know it’s not all fun and games). This was the perfect introduction the new Latch bottle from Munchkin. The Latch bottle helps new moms with the transition from breast to bottle. This unique feeding system has a nipple that stretches and moves like an accordion, so that baby can correctly latch on. The Latch nipple acts as a breast as the baby sucks, which makes it stand out from the rest. Can we say innovative?
The Mbaby Onster Layette collection offers the only patented double layer front for built-in comfort. The reasoning behind this concept is because babies are usually on their back and their front is always exposed. So, why not give them comfort on the front. It’s so perfect! The Mbaby Onester and Sleepster even have a convertible footie that allows their feet to stay warm at night and bare in the day for play. Their play wear is inspired by vintage prints and are perfect for mixing and matching. I personally fell in love with the quality of the collection and prints. I love an amazing print. That may come from working in fabric in the design world for a few years.
This March Huggies will be putting smiles on the faces of many stylish moms. Huggies has launched their new Huggies Clutch ‘N’ Clean wipes that are not only perfect for on the go moms, but they are stylish to. I was invited to a launch breakfast hosted by Nicole Feliciano of Momtrends. During the event Nicole showcased different stylish looks and showed moms how the Huggies Clutch ‘N’ Clean can fit into their busy lives. From the working mom, the soccer mom, the playground mom to the to the date night mom, anyone can carry the stylish Clutch ‘N’ Clean wipes and turn heads while doing so.
As many of you know I’m working towards motherhood and taking down some serious notes. One of my biggest concerns have been staying stylish and feeling good about me once baby comes. This fashionable Clutch ‘N’ Clean product is definitely on my list of must haves for new mommies. They currently come in three different print designs (florals, stripes and dots), they have an easy open and seal closure and they all have a yellow handle, which makes it easy to throw on your wrist or grab. It’s a clutch and a wristlet in one. What mom wouldn’t love that? Watch my event recap below. Enjoy!
I truly enjoyed the breakfast, conversation about mom’s fashion and of course seeing the new HuggiesClutch ‘N’Clean wipes up close and for the first time. These stylish clutches will be available in mid-March 2014 – starting at $3.99 per clutch. To learn more about these and other Huggies products visit their website, www.huggies.com.
