New SASSY Baby Products Just Arrived!

We just received several New items from Sassy that I wanted to share with you!
It's a toss up as to which are my most favorites, because they are each my favorite for different reasons.

The Teething Feeders are my favorite thing for teething babies to sooth their poor aching gums and they are also wonderful to allow a baby to taste 'real foods', safely. The little mesh bags hold things like cantaloupe or watermelon that baby can gum and suck on. The soft foods then squish through the small holes in the bag so mom doesn't have to worry that baby will suck a huge piece of food down her throat and choke.

When baby is teething, there is nothing healthier for baby then gumming on a cooled banana. The Teething Feeder is great for 'On-The-Go' moms because you can fill the mesh bag with yummy foods, put the cap on the feeder and toss it in your refrigerator or cooler bag to take with you. Then its ready when baby is.

The Teething Feeder is cleaned up easily by hand or in the top-rack of your dishwasher. The mesh bags can be cleaned and re-used many times before they need to be replaced...we carry replacement bags too. We have the Teething Feeders in-store and very soon online too.

Another of my favorite Sassy products has actually been around for a very long time. I used one when my 28 year old daughter was a baby! It's the Baby Food Nurser. The nurser eases the transition to solid foods by introducing baby food through a bottle.

The special bottle has a unique vacuum disc bottom that works with baby's suction to push the food forward and keep air out. As your child grows, nursing and formula may not be enough. When baby is ready to begin solid foods, but not yet ready for the spoon, he wears more than he eats, so the Sassy Baby Food Nurser will be a real help.

The Sassy Baby Food Nursers come in a 2-pack in color choices of Pink, Green & Blue. They are available in-store and very soon online too!

Once you start feeding baby food to your little one the jars seem to take over your cabinets, but that wont be a problem with the Sassy Baby Food Pantry Organizer. It holds up to 24 jars or aseptic containers. If you buy baby food by the month, then purchase two and your baby food can be organized in your cabinets so there is still room for grown up food!

The three shelf rotating unit assembles easily without any tools and has a foot print no larger than a dinner plate so you make the most of your usable cabinet space.

Trimming a babies nails is probably one of the scariest things new parents learn to do. We have all probably experienced the horrible guilt when your thumb slips on the clipper handle and you accidentally cut baby's fingernail too short. That is what prompted me carry the Sassy Soft Grip Nail Clippers in my store. Not only are they the Cutest little things, but they offer 'sure-grip' control and they're just the right size clipper for your baby's fine nails. They have a comfortable grip and a thumb pad to help prevent your thumb from slipping, making nail trimming so much easier.

I also believe that the cute bumble bee character serves as a great distraction for baby while you are clipping their nails. We have them in-store now, and very soon online too.

And finally, to give your baby some fun while exercising their hearing, touch, and vision sensory, we have the Sassy Stim-Gym. The vivid colors with great contrasting patterns are wonderful for newborns who are just beginning to track objects with their eyes, distinguish the differences between sounds, and turn towards the source of sounds. Then at 3+ months the Stim-Gym helps baby learn to support their weight on their forearms during tummy time, learn to reach for objects, and learn to roll over.

From the crinkle sounds when they touch certain parts, to watching themselves in the fold up mirror, your baby is sure to get hours and hours of fun time from this developmental gym. The Stim-Gym is only available in-store at this time.

We carry lots of other Sassy Baby products, so stop by to see them all!

Schwinn Free Wheeler AL Jogging Strollers are Here!

The calendar says its Spring, even if Mother Nature hasn't check her calendar recently, that means it's time to get outdoors and soak up some sunshine and fresh air.

So the timing is perfect for the arrival of our New Schwinn Jogging Strollers! Solve your cabin fever by taking your little one(s) out for a stroll. If it's too cool just yet, then take a look at our cozy warm stroller buntings by Nomie Baby, they are totally reasonably priced too.

We've got the New Schwinn Jogging Strollers in both Single and Double in both Deep Red & Black or Pretty Green & Blue.

These are really nice and they have some of the coolest features. One of my favorite features is the Wind & Rain cover that stows away inside the canopy when you don't need it. Speaking of the Canopy, its really large so it gives your little one lots of protection from the sun.

Another neat feature that I really like is the Rear Suspension System that ensures a smooth comfortable ride every time.

Some of the other great features of these jogging strollers are:

  • Parking Brake Bar, so you can easily set the brakes on both sides with one quick push on the link bar.
  • Swivel Front Wheel that can be fixed into position for jogging, or disengaged for super easy maneuvering in tight spaces...this stroller will literally do a full 360 turn in its own space.
  • One-hand fold down when storing the stroller.
  • Adjustable handle so its the perfect fit for really tall or really short parents and everyone in-between.
  • Light weight aluminum frame makes this stroller a breeze to lift into your car.
  • Holds children up to 50lbs for the Single and 100lbs for the Double.
  • Child tray and parent console on the Single, or an attached parent pouch on the handle of the Double.

The VERY BEST THING About these Strollers....They are All Marked Way Down!! Pacific-Cycle is marking them down to clear their warehouses to make room for the New 2010 Models arriving soon, and The Baby Store Plus is passing those Savings on to You! See our in-store and Online Deals While Supplies Last!

Just in time for Springtime Road trips...the Snack & Play Travel Tray!

I spend a lot of time reaching into the back seat to pick up toys, cups, and books that my grandkids drop while we are traveling, whether on short or long trips. But no more...because the folks at StarKids have created the Coolest travel tray that is made of a soft, lightweight material that attaches to most convertible or booster style car seats, stroller trays, and airplane seats too.

The Snack & Play Travel Tray attaches easily for quick hook-up or release. It provides a sturdy surface for kids to play or snack on and the padded rim holds toys on the tray. There are two mesh pockets on either side of the tray to hold extra toys, a sippy cup or bottle, snacks, pacifiers and other small items all within easy reach.

Because safety is of utmost importance to me, I am very pleased to know that Star Kids has crash tested the Snack & Play Travel Tray at a federally recognized laboratory. Because the foam inserts collapse on impact, the tray does not pose a threat of injury in the event of an accident while using it.

The Snack & Play Travel Tray retails for just $19.99! It only comes in Blue at this time, and it easily wipes clean with a damp cloth. You can now find them at The Baby Store Plus, both in-store and online!

We Coloradans know that sun glasses are not just for summer...Kids need protection when playing in the bright, reflective snow too!

My First Shades by RKS are not grown up sun glasses that have been shrunk down to a childs size, they were designed specifically to fit infants & childrens heads. They are not cheapy little glasses that distort your childs vision and offer minimal UV protection either. My First Shades are SEROUS SUN PROTECTION for babies, toddlers, and kids up to age 5!

The Baby Store Plus also has RKS Flex sunglasses for kids ages 3-7, without the neoprene bands. They have regular side ear pieces and have a special flex frame that is meant to bend, not break like regular children's glasses.

The My First Shades for infants & toddlers have adjustable neoprene bands that are so comfortable, babies say they love to wear them! :) Well, in their own way they do. My 12 month old grandson Russell is sporting a pair of Froggy glasses here (he couldn't wait for me to take the tag off, lol.)

The RKS neoprene bands make these shades float, in salt water, fresh water, and swimming pools so you will never lose them when swimming. And every pair has shatterproof, impact-resistant polycarbonate lenses and frames that stand up to a kids life. The frames can even be fitted with prescription lenses, if you like.

How cute is this? The day they arrived, my 3 yr old granddaughter Sydney insisted on trying on a pair. She loved them so much that she wore them around the store for hours. I took her for a walk down the street so that she would at least see how they kept the sun out of her!

Baby Be Mine Gownie ~ Pretty Labor & Delivery Gowns

We experienced mom's remember how hideously ugly the hospital gowns are, and that they are so thin you feel shy about wearing them in mixed company. Our visitors probably remember the inevitable 'extra show' they received when we got out of bed and expose our entire backside without even knowing it. Then a few weeks later while showing off the 'newborn' pictures we realize that in all of our pictures we are proudly holding baby, while wearing that not-so-lovely, generic-looking, faded hospital gown.

So moms, lets do our mom-to-be friends a great favor...get them a Baby Be Mine Delivery Gown as a baby shower gift! They will stay covered at the hospital and look beautiful in all of the 'newborn' baby pictures too.

The Gownie, by Baby Be Mine, is a non-tent shaped, hospital approved, delivery gown that has easy to use snaps down the back as well on each side of the chest for easy breastfeeding, in several very pretty patterns sure to make the new mommy look and feel her best. The Gownie is so wonderful for new moms that she will probably want to use it at home too.

Features include:
  • 100% cotton
  • Machine washable
  • Soft satin trim for a comfortable feel
  • Simple & Easy snaps down the back for total coverage from top to bottom.
  • Off shoulder front snap openings to allow YOU to easily open and close for examinations and breastfeeding.
  • Gownies come in 2 sizes, we all know one size does not fit most!
  • Deliver in style and comfort! You will have those delivery and newborn photos forever!
  • Great during recovery and for breastfeeding at home too.
  • Hosptial Staff approved and appreciated.
  • Recently featured on the TLC's A Baby Story!
  • Designed with your comfort in mind!

They are available in sizes Small-Medium and Large-XLarge. There are several pretty patterns to choose from with a starting price of about $30.00 for a simple yet very pretty print and about $49.00 for some very chic patterns. They would make a Perfect Baby Shower Gift! Look for them at The Baby Store Plus in Cortez now, and in our Online Store later this week!
