Skip Hop Walk-Along™ Stroller Handle

My toddler is a runner. He takes advantage of every opportunity to bolt from my side! This unique stroller handle gives him a way to have some serious independence while he is still cooperating with my safety guidelines. It’s definitely been a helpful tool for our family! $8, www.SkipHop.com

Baby Banz

I’ve lost count of how many times my kids have thrown their sunglasses over the edge of their stroller. I was so happy to discover these glasses that have a neoprene elastic strap that has a much higher success rate when it comes to keeping sunglasses on my kids’ faces! Made of shatter-resistant polycarbonate, these glasses are capable of holding prescription lenses, offer 100 percent UV protection and are available in a rainbow of colors. From $17, www.USA.BabyBanz.com

City Mini GT Stroller

In my three years of being a mommy, I’ve seen my fair number of strollers. I wish I would have made a bigger investment in my first stroller—because now that I’ve used this one, I’m spoiled! It can be customized with multiple accessories, comes in a variety of colors and drives like a dream. The all-terrain wheels, super quick-fold technology and UV 50+ sun canopy are my favorite features. $350, www.BabyJogger.com

Bellaband

There’s nothing quite as annoying as the sagging of maternity pants in the late third trimester of pregnancy. This maternity band is designed to fix the problem—just wear it over your unbuttoned pants, and it will keep them in place. Available in several colors with a lace trim option, this will be a maternity and postpartum staple the next time I am pregnant. $28, www.IngridAndIsabel.com

The Original BedBug

This plush pal is uniquely designed to make bedtime easier for kids—especially when Mom or Dad can’t be at home when it’s time for the child to sleep. Record three custom voice messages: two 20-second clips and one 3-minute segment. Kids can press the button on the BedBug’s satin feet and hear their personalized messages as they drift off to sleep. Best part? This company is based right here in the metro—in Overland Park—and their product is available at several local retailers! $29.99, www.OriginalBedBug.com

Baby Om by Laura Staton and Sarah Perron

Babies keep mommies very busy—which means there may not be a lot of time leftover for exercise routines. And because losing baby weight is something most moms are concerned about, this is not an ideal situation! This mom-and-baby yoga book enables a new mother to get in some playtime while toning and strengthening her postpartum body. That is definitely a win-win in my book. $19.99, www.Amazon.com
