Beauty and the Bump attended the first day of the New York Baby Show. It was definitely the place to be for expecting New York City parents, especially since the latest innovations in baby gear and more were showcased. We are excited to share our tops picks of all things baby that we saw at the show.

Top Picks for Baby/Toddler

embé® Two-way Swaddle

Moms, you know that swaddling is a skill. I am always amazed by people who can swaddle babies with ease. The embé® two-way swaddle makes swaddling a no-brainer and offers convenience for mom during diaper changes and comfort for babies.  You’ll love that it is also made of 100% cotton.

Bare Air-free by Bittylab

Finding the perfect bottle for your new baby can be tough, especially if you’re a breastfeeding mom returning to work.  While you’re at work and the baby is away from you, you want the bottle to not only mimic the breast but also reduce gas. It’s not fun to return from a long day at work to a gassy baby. The Bare Air-free bottle is inspired by mom’s breast, it allows the baby to have full control over the flow and pace during feedings by varying suction strength. Additionally, patented Air-plug Technology allows you to expel the air in the bottle prior to feeding, and moves automatically with baby suction to deliver Air-free Milk.

RideSafer Travel Vest

City-dwelling parents who are frequently in and out of taxis with their toddlers or parents who often travel can benefit from this portable, yet safe alternative to a car seat for use during car travel. I was beyond impressed by both the RideSafer Travel Vest and the Delighter booster seat. The vest and seat can be used alone or together and is suitable for three-year-olds and children weighing 30 to 60 lbs. (small) and 50 to 80 lbs. (large).

Baby K’tan Baby Carriers

If you are looking for an easy-to-use multifunctional baby carrier, look no further than Baby K’tan. The Baby K’tan ready-to-wear wraps function as a sling, wrap and baby carrier, and is perfect for baby wrap novices since it can be slipped on like a t-shirt, and your bundle of joy is safe and secure in three easy steps. The Baby K’tan is available in three different styles: ORIGINAL, BREEZE and ACTIVE.

Austlen Baby Co. Entourage Stroller

It amazes me how much strollers have changed within the last six years.  At the New York Baby Show I came across Austlen Baby Co., a 10-month old company that has come to change the game in baby gear with the innovative and versatile Entourage stroller. If you are looking for a stroller that can accommodate your baby from infant to toddler stage, as well as be able to make room for their brother/sister or even groceries, the Entourage is for you. This baby does not lack storage space, and it easily opens and closes. One-hand functionalities for the win. It is a stroller that can grow with your kid(s) and your family’s growing needs.

Top Picks for Mom

FridaBaby Fridet MomWasher

When my daughter was younger, I swore by the NoseFrida. It was probably one of the best baby shower gifts I received. While at the New York Baby Show, I was excited to spot the FridaBaby booth to learn about their latest products like the Fridet MomWasher.

Remember the water squeeze bottle that’s provided to you at the hospital after giving birth? This is the same idea, except in a neater and more hygienic package. Plus, it can be used when potty training toddlers. Honestly, this is so perfect for little girls even after the potty training stage. I’m definitely going to get the ButtWasher for my six-year-old mini me.


Mabel’s Labels

Moms need durable labels for all of our kid’s things from baby bottles to school supplies. Mabel’s Labels has a growing line of labels that are laundry, dishwasher and microwave safe that include everything from baby labels, child safety product labels, sports labels, travel labels, household organizational labels, and seasonal items. Basically, every label that will help keep you and your family organized, and keep your kid’s things from getting either mixed up or lost. Plus, the labels are cute and can be personalized.

Volvo XC60 T6

If you follow me on social media you will know how much I am OBSESSED with Volvo’s SUVs. The Volvo XC90 is my top pick, and then I saw the new 2018 Volvo XC60 T6.  If you’re in the market for a new “mom car” you may want to consider checking out this compact SUV. It has an all-new interior and exterior design complete with a pretty amazing “nanny package” that includes a 360-degree camera, blind-spot warning and more.

Steer Assist has been added to the groundbreaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions. – Volvo


I was impressed by the fact that two car seats are able to fit in the back passenger seats with room for a third person (child or small adult).  Trunk space was sufficient, too, especially for a compact SUV of its size.

If you snap a photo at the Volvo Cars of Manhattan booth this weekend at the New York Baby Show, you can win a weekend driving the XC90.
