Happy Babylicious = Baby Happy Licious

July 26, 2008

Crib bedding should always be chosen with care.  Make sure the design and colors of the bedding coordinates with the nursery theme, color of the walls and overall style you are looking to create.

Babylicious has come out with a delicious crib bedding set appropriately called “Happy” and petiteposh is “happy” to make this available to you.  The colors suit just about any decor and just looking at the bedding creates a happy mood.

Diaper Bags Not Just for Diaper Days

July 23, 2008

What makes the perfect diaper bag?  Let’s start with the look you want.  Do you want a diaper bag that looks like a diaper bag or something a bit more stylish for the fashionista in you?  Now that you have decided on the look you need to make sure it is comfortable for you to wear, carry and hang.

The perfect diaper bag should have comfortable straps that sit comfortably on your shoulders and are adjustable to your height.  Another extremely important aspect of the perfect diaper bag is pockets…pockets…pockets, I cannot stress the importance of this.  Staying organized with all items at your fingertips is essential.  Choose a bag with several compartments and pockets. 

Caden Lane diaper bags have all the essential components of the perfect diaper bag as well as trendy styles.  Check out all of the latest styles of diaper bags at www.petiteposh.com and if you have any suggestions for other diaper bags please don’t hesitate to contact us!

A Tisket, A Tasket, A Baby Gift Basket

July 16, 2008

I have been wracking my brains over the past few weeks for new ideas for gift baskets.  I don’t really advertise on petiteposh.com gift baskets as I find them too cumbersome to ship but I really love putting them together and getting creative.  I do this for customers in the Toronto area as delivery is easy.

So,  back to the beginning, I have been trying to come up with a new “vessel” for a baby gift basket.  I finally came up with one!  The Spa Baby Tub is the perfect container for a baby gift basket!  It is not only the perfect fit for all the products I love to fill the basket with but it is useful too.  I really dislike those gift baskets that are just baskets.  If you are like me your basement is filled with unused baskets of all shapes and sizes.

The Spa baby tub is not only the container but is part of the gift.  So if you are looking for an idea for a great baby gift basket the Spa Baby Tub is the perfect fit!

The 3 B’s…Bunny, Beautiful, Baby

July 14, 2008

 

Is it me or is the weather this summer really crazy, unpredictable and iratic?  Here, in Toronto, one day is sweltering, hot and humid, the next day is spring ( did I mention it is mid July?) cool and comfortable.  The evenings on these days tends to be chilly so bundle up baby in a light spring coat.

Soft, cuddly and prescious this pink and pretty bunny coat is the perfect accessory for the style minded toddler.

Storing Breast Milk

July 12, 2008

While visiting my daughter and granddaughter today a very good question arose. … How long can you safely refrigerate breast milk?  We researched and came up with this – If you are not going to use breastmilk within four hours after pumping, refrigerate or freeze it as soon as possible. If the milk is refrigerated at 32 to 39 degrees Fahrenheit it can be stored for up to eight days

Problem – With “baby brain” how is a new Mom supposed to remember when she refrigerated the milk? 

Solution – Days Ago Digital counters. Brilliant!

The French Word for Perfect….Kaloo

July 8, 2008

I had an email the other day from someone in Atlanta.  Seems that they had been searching the web for the Kaloo Organic collection.  They found what they were looking for at www.petiteposh.com.  We began emailing back and forth and something they wrote struck me as so true.  Kaloo makes the most yummy plush toys available in the market today.  Unfortunately, if you are not familiar with Kaloo, familiar as in up close and personal you cannot realize the “yumminess” of the product.  The plush toys are squishy, cuddly, soft and comforting.  Now Kaloo makes the organic plush toys and clothing that is just too hard to resist.  Soft, as soft as only a baby can be and packaged so beautifully as only Kaloo knows how to package.

For the month of July, for every Kaloo product purchased (over $25.00) petiteposh will add at no charge a wrist rattle by Kaloo.  Just put in the comment area when placing your order “Kaloo” and the wrist rattle will be on its way.

Pacey the Therapy Dog, doing good deeds.

July 8, 2008

Pacey has been going to the Autism class in the local public school since January 2008.  Some days I wondered if she was having an impact on any of the children.  They are all non verbal so it is sometimes difficult to tell.  The one child that it is certain she has had an impact on is a 10 year old boy.  It was love at first site!  He is of a more violent nature but extremely gentle with Pacey.  Each visit he cannot take his eyes off of her. 

This child is moving on to a new school next year and is very upset that he won’t be able to visit with Pacey.  His parents have seen the dramatic impact she has had on him and after some discussion have asked the new school to request a therapy dog to visit there also.  The school has approved the request and with the new school year will be having a therapy dog visit weekly !!!!

As for Pacey, she started the summer off with a rough start.  We discovered a tumor on her right hip and on the upper gum line in her mouth.  She had surgery last week and the results were FABULOUS!!!! She is fine, recouperating and the tumors were not malignant!

Pacey will be back at work starting September!
