Andrea quickly realized that most retailers carried products that all seemed the same. Aha! One late night, pregnant and sleepless, she found a great product in The Netherlands that was not sold anywhere in the US. A business idea was hatched! Then she found that many great products were only being sold in small shops scattered around the world, being designed and manufactured by parents who found voids when they had children.
Frustrated by searching and buying from dozens and dozens of retailers (and paying big freight costs to ship to the US), Andrea realized a need in the baby market. What mothers needed was one place they could rely on for really unique, really original and really stylish baby products and gifts. Not to mention high quality!
And so, we searched the world, high and low. You wouldn’t believe the places we visit and the collection of friends we’ve made all over the world. The people we buy from share our philosophy of unique, exciting baby items that are now available to you exclusively from babydagny.com.
Whether you're shopping for your newborn, a shower gift or a unique gift for a friend, we are sure you will find something you love at Baby Dagny!

If you're not familiar with Made for Mom products, now is the time to familiarize yourself. A few of my favorites include the genius Snack Trap, the Spout Sprout, and the Lil' Topper. All three of these items make life a lot easier! The Snack Trap is the ultimate way to to stop a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Crunched into the ground Cheerios! It's simple, a small cup with easy to hold handles and a soft lid that allows little hands in and out without spilling everything all over the place. It can be turned upside down, shaken around, and it's magical, no spills! There is also the new Snap Over Lid which keeps snacks fresh and secure while not in use.

If you are traveling abroad and need to learn a new language, then you must check out Earworms! A new revolutionary way to learn a foreign language! So much better than a book where you don't hear the proper pronunciation and tone. With Earworms, you put in the CD and listen to the speaker with background music, it is actually quite relaxing and enjoyable. Learn a new language (Japanese, Chinese, Spanish, French, German, and more) on your way to work, while getting ready in the morning, while doing your workout, cleaning the house, anytime really! You can buy the CD or download version for your ipod.
I would definetly recommend Earworms to anyone that would like to learn a new language! Earworms are truly a hip and unique way to learn a foreign language and after a few times listening you will remember phrases and questions. In no time, you will be able to ask for a glass of "po tao jio" (wine in Chinese)!! It's a really great product and also a fun way to teach your children a new language as well!
To find out more about Earworms, visit www.earwormslearning.com

When I came across the Dali Mama site, I was super excited! The first thing that intrigued me was the name of the company. Dali Mama, has a terrific story behind its creation. After struggling with all of her yoga gear, Dawn Alane was in her yoga class resting in a state of Svasana (aka the “resting pose”), when something magical happened......a yoga mat with straps and a handle appeared as a vision floating above my head. After the she headed home to share the vision with her friends. One of her friends jokingly called her the "Dali Lama" when her young daughter chimed in with "No, she's the Dali Mama." The company was born!
Dali Mama products are the finest yoga products I have come across. They are beautiful, extremely well made, and 100% functional. Their Luxury Mats are the best I have ever tried. They are well sized and have the perfect thickness and feel to them. The straps are such a fabulous feature. They look beautiful, and provide you with a hands free walk to class. You can now hold your water/towel, and your little one's hand on the way to the "kids corner."
You may be wondering, "Do the straps get in the way?" Nope, I simply tucked mine under the mat and completely forget that they were there. When class was over I rolled up my mat, strapped it up, flung it over my shoulder, and hit the door, hands free! I had several people ask me where I got my beautiful mat. I was proud to say Dali Mama.
All products can be purchased online. Visit the Dali Mama site today. Their mission is to raise global consciousness through artistry, design, and a yoga lifestyle. I am proud to promote and use their products. Namaste.

Are you looking for something different in skincare products for your family? Do you want something gentle, natural and free of chemical preservatives? vedaPURE is the answer for you.
veduPure is a collection of skincare products created by one of New York City's Top Doctors, Dr. Natalie Geary. vedaPure is the first and only skincare line using ancient Ayurveda principles of balance and health and herbal remedies for calming and soothing. vedaPURE is known for its fresh, natural scent without the use of typical preservatives and steroids used by other skincare lines.
vedaPure offers simply natural and honestly pure skincare for women, babies and men in the 3 lines offered: vedaMAMA, vedaBABY, and vedaDUDE.
My favorite vedaMAMA product is Relax Body Cream. The chocolate mint cream scent is fabulous and just the smell takes me to a happy place! The cocoa butter moisturizes while the capsicum and Anica work on relieving sore muscles. I know every Mama can use a product like this!
The vedaBaby line features a product called Splash, a soothing bath powder. This product works great for my 2 year old daughter who was recently diagnosed with eczema. The soothing properties of Splash offer her relief from dry, itchy skin.
As a personal user of the vedaPure line, I recommend you invest in this quality natural skincare for your family. While you are at the vedaPure website, be sure to check out the Ingredients page for a list and explanation of each ingredient's healing properties.

The more I look at the products available for babies today, the more I realize moms are so smart! Moms are coming up with the coolest products for their babies and are starting businesses to share the product with others!
One such cool product is called "Comfy Crawlers", a functional and stylish crawling pant designed to provide protection for your crawler's knees. Marina Westerdahl, designer and Mom, created Comfy Crawlers out of concern for her own son who was learning to crawl on tile floors in the family home. When she couldn't find anything on the market to satisfy her needs, she made a pair of pants with padded knees. Soon she was selling to friends and Gissy Bella was born.
Comfy Crawlers are made of super soft ultra-suede, which is stain-resistant and breathable. They feature cushy padding on the knees and bum to cushion falls and a single-button adjustable waistband. Comfy Crawlers are available in 6 rich colors for boys and girls.
Pants that protect your crawling baby's knees? Yeah, that's cool. Buy a pair for your baby and everyone you know that is going to have a baby. They are sure to be the favorite pants to wear! Shop Gissy Bella for a great pair of pants "Designed by a mommy & loved by babies."
