Ellie & Melissa, The Baby Planners Love... Moms Who Made It!
BabyZone's gear gurus, Ellie & Melissa, The Baby Planners, pay tribute to women who used their mom-smarts and business intuition to create fabulous and functional family-driven products.
Amy Michelle Diaper Bags
We love a diaper bag that doesn’t scream “Baby!” but does scream style, fashion, and function—Amy Michelle diaper bags do just that. Mom Michelle and business partner Amy created a line of bags that can take you from work to travel to errands to changing diapers—all the while keeping you in the pre-mommy style you’ve always loved!
Milkstars was created by a mom who dreaded getting dressed after her baby was born. After searching high and low for flattering nursing clothes and coming up empty-handed, designer Jamie Rubin took matters into her own hands. With a variety of super-soft fabrics and a stylish fit, you’ll be wearing these designs long after you stop nursing.
The Recovery Kit: Childbirth Mini
Recovering from birth—whether it’s a vaginal birth or C-section—is a lot easier since Mom Melissa Johnson came up with The Recovery Kit. This perfect gift for moms-to-be includes everything from healing teas to soothing sprays to a postpartum tummy wrap. The cute eco-friendly bag these items come in is handy, too.
Wow Baby Bibs & Burps
It all started in the kitchen. Baby’s excessive dribble plus Mom’s quest to keep baby dry resulted in this organic bamboo bib extraordinaire! Mom Bridgette paired her sassy prints with a spill-proof, removable liner that, along with the money-back guarantee, truly Wows us!
Ergo Baby Carrier
When Karin Frost had her son, she wanted to design a hands-free baby-wearing carrier that supported her active lifestyle and her belief of keeping Baby close. Her creation, Ergo, is an all-in-one baby carrier that can be worn in the front, back, or hip position. Her family-owned and -operated company in Maui, Hawaii, has taken baby-wearing to a whole new level. Aloha!
The Mommy Measure
Parents-to-be Pam and Kevin used everything from ribbon to squares of toilet paper to measure Pam’s growing belly. When baby #2 came along, they came up with a better method of making measurements and recording milestones—The Mommy Measure. This unique pregnancy measuring tape is an easy way to chart your bump and include your partner in the fun.
These plush and cuddly feeding time helpers are designed to help parents who occasionally need a free hand when feeding Baby. Mom Jennifer Marko liked them so much she bought the company. While not meant for every feeding, Bottle Snugglers provide a “third hand” for when you really need one! Perfect for multiples!
Baggino Learner's Bibs
Mom Conny Kothe wanted to create a bib that would keep baby comfortable and make messy table time a bit more manageable. The long sleeves and extra long front provide coverage where it’s most needed. Great for toddlers who are learning what the fork and spoon are all about!
