Superheroes Superpowers Poster

This is one awesome poster for the childrens room – or the office.

Ever in need of a superpower just look at the poster and pick a superhero. Need someone for a meeting who can read thoughts – you’ll need to call Saturn Girl. Or beating traffic using teleportation Blink, Nightcrawler, Spot or Gateway could be the solution here.

The poster was made by Pop Chart Lab and can be bought at their site for a mere $20.

Sleepy Wings – Ingenious Alternative to Swaddling the Baby

Sleepy Wings is a type of clothing meant to reduce the startle reflex of babies without swaddling.

By reducing the startle reflex you can prevent the baby from waking itself during sleep, keep it from scratching and pinching mommy while feeding, and keep it from scratching itself.

Sleepy Wings allow the baby to sleep in a natural position, with bent elbows and arms positioned alongside the head, without restricting the baby’s ability to reach it’s mouth with it’s hands. This allows the baby to self settle and sooth without scratching itself.

What I love the most about Sleepy Wings are the ingenious “dummy pockets”, which are placed in each hand. These allow you to place two pacifiers in the immediate reach of the babies mouth, hence the baby can loose it’s pacifier twice without the parents having to intervene!

Eco-Friendly Convertible Cribs

Convertible cribs are a good investment since they allow you to convert them into other pieces of furniture (usually a toddler bed) as the baby grows. You’ll save both money and time by buying a convertible crib and therefore you might want to find a really nice crib, as it’ll be with you for a long time.

Here are two eco-friendly and very practical convertible cribs that you might want to take into consideration.

Most of us know of Stokkes Trip Trap chair which has followed many children and childrens children through their childhoods. Stokke Sleepi is the Trip Trap of convertible cribs. I’ll go as far as considering it the king of convertible cribs!

The Stokke Sleepi is four beds and two chairs in one. It starts out as a mini crib or bassinet suitable for infants and small babies (0-6 months). When the baby has outgrown the mini crib it can be converted into an baby crib (0-18 months), thereafter it converts into a toddler bed (18 months – 3 years), and at last it converts into a junior bed (3-10 years).

When the Stokke® Sleepi™ has outdone its use as a bed it can be converted into two chairs!

After 10 years  or more with Stokke® Sleepi™ I would not be surprised if the children one day would like to use it for their own children, so make sure to keep it safely stored away when not in use.

Another practical convertible crib is the Argington Bam Bassinet, which has a clean look that will suit most nurseries.

The Argington Bam Bassinet starts out as a bassinet or mini crib suitable for infants and small babies. It converts into a large baby crib for larger babies, and at last it converts into a toddler bed. It can not be converted into a junior bed and chairs, like the Stokke Sleepi can though.

Little Korboose – Pillow Soft Toy

Little Korboose is the creator of these wonderful pillows shaped around childish drawings. Simple and adorable!

I love the use of only a few colors and how the color doesn’t stay inside the lines. I can imagine that many toddlers and small children will use these pillows as soft toys as well.
