We got the Smart Trike 3-in-1 Tricycle when our baby was just about 10 months old, and from the beginning, we were impressed with the features of this grow-with-me tricycle. It's now over a year later, and this little trike has logged many a mile. It is sturdy and easy to steer with rubber wheels for a smooth ride.
Available in multiple patterns and colors, it's a great trike for both baby boys and girls. I use ours all the time for walks through the neighborhood, and my little girl enjoys it so much more than the stroller.
babyhome is a Spanish company that only recently has begun marketing their products in the U.S., but I have no doubt that their gear is going to really become the new hot ticket items in the world of baby products.
For spring, I am particularly impressed with their Onfour bouncey seat. Though it doesn't have the bling of attachable toys, musical buttons, or a vibrating seat, oddly that is the same thing that is appealing to me. Sleek and compact, this bouncey seat definitely gives off a European vibe, and is easily transportable. I could see moms using these for warm-weather picnics or for trips to the park when an older sibling plays nearby.
I realize I may be far from the norm among women, but I am certainly not "in" to handbags. So you can imagine when I started carrying a diaper bag, I didn't like trying to juggle a purse and a bulging bag filled with baby necessities.
That is why I love Petunia Picklebottom's Whereabouts Wallet (my favorite print: "flowering firenze"). It's got a place for all your essentials (including your cell phone), and has two different strap styles for easy toting. Small enough that it can be tucked inside your diaper bag when needed, but big enough for everything you need when heading out and about with baby, the Whereabouts Wallet is a stylish, space-saving product for moms.

The Tuffo Muddy Buddy is really a must-have if you have an older baby or toddler. The Tuffo Muddy Buddy is excellent rain gear for little ones and also serves as a great coverall for playing in mud or exploring damp terrain.
If you've got a baby due this spring, I'd highly recommend getting the True Womb Swaddle. I am huge believer in swaddling to lull babies to sleep or to calm colic, but at the same time was really disappointed with many of the other manufactured swaddles on the market. I could never get my newborn swaddled with a receiving blanket like those pediatric nurses could (I swear those ladies work magic!). So I honestly was very skeptical when I tried the True Womb Swaddle, but was wonderfully surprised at how well it pulls the baby's legs up into the fetal position while still providing the infant room to wiggle. I truly believe this little invention bought me extra sleep time on multiple occasions.

Here's a relatively new product to the market that isn't just great for spring but all year round. I couldn't be more pleased with how well these bibs work and how much of a mess they eliminate.
Made from a soft, flexible "silicon-like" material, my girl comfortably wears them without being able to pull them off at inopportune times. Purchased in packs of 2, these two bibs replaced my entire stash of feeding bibs. They clean up easily and roll up tightly for travel. Available in bold spring-like colors, they are definitely what I consider to be a must-have for every baby!
