Top New Baby Products from ABC Kids Expo!
We just returned from ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas where we had the chance to see the newest products from hundreds of brands that are soon to be available to parents. We walked the entire two floors of the convention center over the course of two days and saw so many of our favorite brands, while also uncovering some new amazing finds, too! Here are a few items we think all new parents should know about!
Rocker Mama: It was no surprise when this brand was announced as the New Product Award of Distinction winner at ABC Kids. As soon as we sat down to test the Rocker Mama, we were instantly hooked! Just set the Ready Rocker™ securely against an immovable object, sit with it between your back and the stationary object, and shift your weight back and forth to rock anytime, anywhere!
Ardo Breast Pump: This pump is made with "Vacuum Seal" technology, which guarantees protection of the breast, breast milk and the pump against contamination from outside agents. The pump utilizes a double piston which is really quiet and creates equal suction making pumping with Ardo super-efficient.
SiliKids: Silikids is dedicated to building a social movement and creating a cultural shift away from toxic and unsustainable plastic wares by providing an alternative that is safe, modern and made entirely out of silicone. The entire collection is wonderful but the GoSili Sili Straws really stood out to us since they are reusable, dishwasher safe, and can even soothe gums for little teethers!
Travel Tray: Travel Tray keeps parents and kids safe while in the car as it gives just a little extra room needed for snacks and other items. No more turning around to pick something up from the floor of the back seat!
Bity Bean: The Bitybean UltraCompact Baby Carrier is seriously compact! Designed by a father, the carrier can hold an infant up to 40 pounds safely and comfortably, and folds up to fit into a portable and lightweight bag.
Halo: The new DreamNest Open Air Sleep System is a 3-in-1 pack and play that transitions from a rocking bassinet, to a portable crib, to a toddler travel cot. This is a must-have on every registry as you will definitely be using this item from birth to whenever your child can no longer fit into a toddler bed. It will be available in January 2019 at most major stores.
iCandy: The UK brand that uses aeronautical technology for its strollers is back in the USA! These strollers are made of strong, lightweight aluminum frames and are incredibly stylish.
Valco Baby: This brand designs products to not only look great but also incorporates outstanding performance and features that meet the needs of a growing family. Their single and double strollers come with options to accommodate three and even four children!
Micralite: This brand just has some really great looking strollers that also happen to be incredibly engineered to fold fast and easy. There are a number of different versions to select from including the original FastFold one-handed, all terrain stroller, the SmartFold all-weather, all-terrain travel system, and the TwoFold that scales with your family.
Uppa Baby: Known for their incredible strollers and car seats, the brand is launching their first-ever upright booster seat. The Alta high-back booster car seat is stocked with incredible innovative features from an energy response headrest for side impact protection to a SECUREfit belt routing system that ensures proper fit for both the lap and shoulder belt. Kids will love buckling themselves into this seat!
Britax: We saw so many wonderful new products from Britax but one that we’re most excited about is their new SafeWash™ covers that you’ll be able to machine wash & dry while still meeting the FMVSS 302 Flammability Standard. (This means there are no chemicals used on the fabric now to meet this standard!) The covers will be available for different stage car seats starting in December 2018.
Have you seen any cool new children’s products? We would love to hear about them!
