It just became a lot more fashionable to suck on a pacifier. Philips AVENT have given their classic pacifiers a makeover. They still have orthodontic, collapsible and symmetrical nipples that respect the natural development of baby’s palate, teeth and gums, but now they look great too. The silicone, taste and odor-free soothers come in a range of lusty-worthy pastels that passed the ultimate test. In a pacifier lineup, our 2-year-old tester Stella went right for the “pink” one and gave the new design a thumbs up.

Affordable Toddler Beds
You shouldn't break the bank on a toddler bed that you child may only use for a year. The good news is, you don't have to. The Kritter Bed from ikea is just $89. It's 11 inches longer than a crib so your child will have more room to move but won't be overwhelmed by the use size of a regular bed.

Best Baby Bubbles
We were so excited to learn about the arrival of Made 4 Baby bath products in Canada, that we just had to share the news! Thanks to Canadian distributor SheBella, this natural skincare line from New Zealand will keep our babies’ skin safe and soft too. From bubble bath to baby massage oil, the products contain no harsh detergents, parabens, artificial fragrances or petrochemicals. We love the Foaming Hair & Body Wash in its handy pump and the Barrier Crème for preventing diaper rash – it contains soothing avocado and aloe vera, so is also great for dry skin! www.shebella.com
