Glam Baby Gear | Ergobaby Four Position 360 Carrier

A comfortable baby carrier is a real asset for caregivers. The benefits of babywearing are well-documented and being hands-free can increase productivity and save your sanity.

After Sebastian was born, I tested several carrier options and found Ergobaby to be among the most comfortable. That’s no easy feat considering he weighed over 25 pounds by his first birthday but with the help of our Ergobaby, I toted him around New York City, on buses and subways, through museums and parks, for years.

You’re Invited! | Babo Botanicals Spring Launch Party at buybuy Baby Chelsea

babo-botanicals-spring-launch-party-buybuy-baby-chelsea-ny

Join me Saturday afternoon, May 3rd between 2 – 5 pm at buybuy Baby in my old stomping ground for a Spring Launch Party to celebrate Babo Botanicals‘ two newest hair care products– Smoothing Conditioner and Swim & Sport Conditioner.

Babo’s passionate founder, Kate Solomon, will be on hand with free samples and plenty of yummy snacks and fun activities to keep the kids busy while you browse.

If you’re not familiar with the brand, Babo Botanicals is a natural hair, skin, and sun products collection made entirely on a certified organic farm in upstate New York. The products are 100% vegan (except the lotions that contain beeswax) and free of parabens, phthalates, and artificial fragrances. Products you can truly feel good about bringing into your home!

I’ve recommended Babo Botanicals’ sun care products in the past since they rank highly among the top-rated sunscreens for the entire family but we just started using the hair care too. My kids and I have serious locks and Babo Botanicals not only gets the job done but the products smell divine and leave hair soft and manageable. Bonus points for getting my guys excited to wash their hair!

I really love this brand and hope you’ll pop in to say hello and learn more. Look forward to seeing you!

RSVP here or at babolove@babobotanicals.com.
