This week, we attended the ABC Kids Expo — an annual showcase of the latest and most innovative products for babies, mothers, and parents! We had such a great time making new friends and catching up with our long-time partners. You may have followed along with us on social media as we talked to some of these companies at the Expo — if not, check out our Facebook live videos here!
Natural and Eco-Friendly Products
This year, natural products made a splash at the Expo. One of our favorites was Earth Mama, a company that makes natural and organic herbal products for pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women, and babies of all ages. They showed us a sneak peek of their new deodorant that is safe for pregnant and nursing mothers — and we even got to try it for ourselves. Not only is it a safe, herbal alternative, but it actually worked! Another must have is their Angel Baby Bottom Balm. The balm can also double as a skin salve.
We also stopped by our friends at JJ Rabbit, and talked to them about their design-focused, eco-conscious children’s feeding products. You can see the products on our Facebook page in one of our live videos, where we highlighted some of their brand new textile products that they debuted at ABC Expo!
Of course, there were also a ton of exciting, high-tech products for babies and parents at the show. The Tranquilo Mat is a vibrating mat that soothes your crying baby by mimicking the sounds and motions of the womb. The mat is portable, so you can soothe your baby in the crib, stroller, or on the go.
We’d even categorize UppaBaby’s newly redesigned Vista stroller as high-tech. We know how hard it can be to pack up everything for an adventure or errand with your little one, and seeing the new Vista stroller reminds us that innovation can be a parent’s best friend! What really impressed us was how easily the Vista collapsed – it takes just one-step, and, once folded, it even stands on its own.
We also stopped by Baby Banana to see what new products they have in store for teething babies. In addition to the popular banana brush, we saw some of their newest teething toys, in the shapes of fun fruits: grapes, strawberries, and pineapples.
These were just a handful of the amazing products we saw. Be sure to check out our Facebook for more, including an interview with the Milkies Moms!
