Julian and I ventured into the city earlier this month for Maletzky Media's Babypalooza New York City 2018 at Chelsea Piers. I figured the brands would be right up his alley and they didn't disappoint. I saw some old friends, like Babo Botanicals, who were showcasing their Sensitive Skin Baby Line, mineral-based sunscreens, and new lip balms. I also got to know some newer brands that I wasn't familiar with until now. Here are the highlights:
b.box baby: Julian has been on solids for quite a while so I'm now toting around snacks and looking for storage solutions. The Australian company b.box was founded by two moms and has really cool, functional feeding and storage products. We've been using the bowl + straw that also converts to a snack carrier. I love that they're multi-purpose, lightweight, and come in fun colors.
CoTZ: I'm big into non-toxic sunscreen so when I saw a brand I didn't recognize, I ran to the table to learn more. CoTZ is mineral-based and 100% free of chemical sunscreen, preservatives and oils which makes them great for the whole family. I've been using the baby formula on Julian and it's keeping him white as a little ghost. They also make a foam formula that I'm dying to try.
Thule: I've always known Thule for its racks and carriers but not for its strollers. Turns out they make some heavy duty ones that look pretty sleek too.
