I can’t believe this was our third year attending The New York Baby Show ! I have to say that it gets better every single time!This year was bigger and better than ever. It’s always a pleasure to get to see all the new great products and gadgets that come out every year, even the tried and true products that I used for my kiddos when they were tiny humans! I know from experience how overwhelming it can be to search through all the sea of family and baby products out there. The mentality as a new or expectant parent is that you want to be making the right decisions and choosing the best products for your baby. The New York Baby Show is definitely the place where you can be as informed as you can from maternity to toddler years and more.
What stood out to me the most is that there are a lot of eco-friendly, natural and organic products that you can feel good about. Your child’s health is the #1 priority and it is reassuring to know there are a lot of options.
With that said, I will get straight to it and tell you about my first pick.
I was so happy to see thinkbaby and pleasantly surprised it has grown to become a company that offers a great variety of products just not for baby but for the whole family! It was the first 100% BPA FREE bottle line and free of phthalates, PVC, lead, PET, BPS, melamine and biologically harmful chemicals. I bought these bottles for Sarah when she was younger and those were the only ones that stuck with her. She transitioned into the sippy cups and loved those as well. They were easy to use and clean. Now, they offer other products along with their classic bottles and sippy cups.
- thinker system: designed to grow with your child
transform baby bottle to sippy and then to straw bottle via conversion kit
soft, medical grade silicone spouts and straws to ease transition from bottle or breast feeding

As you grow products :
thinkbaby and thinksport sunscreen. – The standard in safe sunscreen and highly rated with the highest SPF, water resistance and UVA/UVB coverage allowed by the FDA. I have used quite a few other all natural/organic sunscreens that offer the highest safety but not all go on as smoothly and absorb as easily. They have so many other great products to offer and with reasonable prices, so check them out!

This bag is so chic! I’m not a fashionista at all and I adore this bag. I love a diaper bag that doesn’t look like a diaper bag.

My honorable mention– Canon
It was one of my favorites from last year and I just had to share it again this year! Capture every single moment of your baby’s life while also being present. I don’t care what anyone else says …document everything! Not 100 pictures of the same shot but you get what I’m saying. Time does go by so fast and it just feels great to look back at those wonderful memories! We’ve been a CANON family since forever so I wouldn’t recommend anything else!
