It’s that time of the year again! We have put together our absolute favorites this year for the tiny eco-babies in your life!
MatiMati Baby Bandana Bibs
For stylish little droolers, MatiMati Bandana Bibs are “Mom’s” new favorite for her little guy! Made with 100% organic cotton, these super-soft and extra-absorbent bibs are as functional as they are practical…and your baby will look absolutely adorable, too! No velcro here – the bibs feature two nickel-free adjustable snaps so the bib can adjust as baby grows, and will not irritate delicate skin. Snaps stay put, too, making it more difficult for little fingers to pull off! Available in a variety of trendy patterns that go with baby’s outfits, rather than clash with them, MatiMati Bandana Bibs are sold in a set of four for $21.95. Visit www.matimatibaby.com.

Does your little one use a paci? If so, grab a 4-pack of these stylin’ pacifier clips from MatiMati Baby, available in the same on-trend patterns and prints as their fashionable Bandana Bibs! No more worries for parents about losing pacifiers at home or on-the-go, the pacifier clips keep your child’s pacifier close by and off the ground! The clips can also be used for teething toys. With cute patterns to match all of your baby’s outfits, MatiMati Baby Pacifier Clips can be found at www.matimatibaby.com.
Marcus & Marcus’ NEW Mold Free Squirting Bath Toys
Safe + fun = a win-win for parents of little ones! Have you ever squeezed a bath toy only to be blasted with scary black chunks of mold?

Chewbeads do not contain lead, BPA, phthalates, cadmium, or other metals, so you can let your little one chew to his or her heart’s content. Breakaway clasps enhance the overall safety of the necklaces, as little fingers do like to tug & pull! Plus, the jewelry can safely be washed in the dishwasher. Visit www.chewbeads.com.
