Modern Sleep Sounds
This audio/sound/music guy (and dad of two) edits sound effects on children's cartoons, including the new animated Adventures of Thomas the Tank Engine, and Dino Ranch.
He decided to create ambient sound and white noise albums by traveling the world to record and collect ambient sounds and then mix them with soft white noise. Each album includes ambient sound on its own, and a version mixed with white noise that he carefully crafts in his studio.
Best of all they are free and available on Apple Music, Spotify Etc,
Skillmatics Countdown to Christmas Advent Calendar 2022
Kids get to open a new box every day to discover fun holiday games like “Christmas Scavenger Hunt” and “Christmas Connections”, daily adventures to spread Christmas cheer, and festive stickers to decorate their own paper Christmas tree. Don’t let the festive fun fool you – they will be building memory, social-emotional and communication skills as they learn through play.
For kids 5-12 years old
This interesting cover is light blocking, waterproof, and offers sound protection. It was 202% funded by parents on Kickstarter in May and is now available.
Ergobaby Evolve 3-in-1 Bouncer
Ergobaby has just launch a really nice bouncer. It converts from a Newborn Lounger to Baby Bouncer to Toddler Chair (up to 3 years old)
You can easily change between the three different height positions with a step pedal on the base it folds completely flat for transport mode.
Contours Quick Lightweight Stroller
If you're looking at a Snap n' Go for carting your infant car seat around, take a quick look at Contours' new Quick stroller. It has the same feature but it's also a lightweight stroller that you can use down the road for a toddler. At Target it's only $10 more expensive than the Snap n' Go.
WubbaNub Detachable Pacifier
WubbaNub has come out with a line of detachable pacifiers (the original is permanently attached). The patent-pending design contains no snaps or hook and loop fasteners and the pacifiers can easily be swapped out and replaced.
Veer has launched a modular stroller system that can convert to a jogging stroller, bike seat, all-terrain stroller, camp chair AND seat for a Veer Wagon. It's pricey but it is NICE!
Diono Lifetime Journey Care
If you're in the U.S., Diono has launched a car seat subscription program.
By signing up for a monthly or annual plan, you can get a 10-year warranty, a new seat cover every year, access to virtual one-on-one fittings with a certified CPST, a discount on a seat, a replacement seat if you're in an accident, a free third seat and a 20% off the Diono store.
I'm using broad strokes here, but it's a cool program especially if you're planning on needing more than one car seat down the road.
