Ali Fedotowsky Nursery Reveal - Fancifully Floral

As a designer, I'd like to think each project is better than the last and when you look at your portfolio over the course of your career, you see the evolution. The problem is, I'm not sure if in the world of nurseries it can really get much better than this floral perfection. Sometimes things just come together in a perfect way and work better than you dreamed - this is one of those times. 

If you're trying to figure out what is going on on that wall, let me help you out. There are FOUR THOUSAND hand made flowers by The Flower Wall Company. Recently people said to me, "That's so cute, did you choose roses because Ali was The Bachelorette?" It probably isn't as newsworthy, but the answer to that is absolutely not. It actually never occurred to me and probably should have. I was focused on designing a room that Ali and Kevin would love for their baby girl and thought the flowers would be visually spectacular. The wall is made of different sections mounted on a grid, so it's extremely safe. Before you chime in - I've seen your comments on Instagram and Facebook already, so I know the burning question, "How do you clean that?" Grab that long skinny vacuum attachment, pop it on and dust it over the flowers. Clean and dust-free in seconds. Yup, that's what that attachment can be used for.
The room was originally a guest room, so after creating the design, I decided the existing closet felt like it was better for short term overnight guests and could be improved upon for full time usage and of course, beautified. I called my friend Lisa Adams at LA Closet Design because...the baby girl needed a closet to match her room! If you have never heard of Lisa, then you must not have a lot of shoes because she is  a wizard. Seriously, the closet version of Harry Potter and women like me dream of what her skills could do for their storage and happiness each morning. On the wall is a rose gold mirror, the hardware on each drawer is little bunnies and those acrylic rods go perfectly with the acrylic details in the room.

To the left of the closet is one of the most personal details in the room. Petal Lane (one of my favorite family-owned companies) created artwork for the space. The center piece says "ENDURE" which is something that Ali's late grandmother would say and it's written in her handwriting. It's the personal details in each room that make them truly special for their little inhabitants.

Hello, Gorgeous Crib. When Ali and I first met she told me that she wanted a crib with a high back. We had already agreed on the flower wall and I was very concerned that a convertible crib would cover too much and take away from the wall. So, I went to the drawing board in search of something that would properly fit the design, but make the parents-to-be happy. Immediately I remembered the New York crib by Romina Furniture. Romina is like the Chanel of baby furniture. Impeccable quality, reputation and design. The problem was that the crib on its own was way too mid century and not enough girlie, cotton candy, lullabies goodness. So, I kindly asked the good folks at Romina if they could put some tufted upholstery on the sides of the crib. The end result was exactly what the room needed. It turned out so well that you can now purchase this style crib in any of their many colors with upholstery. They really should call it the Vanessa. Just saying...

If you have to ask what mattress that is, then you must be new to my designs. Where there's a nursery, there's a Nook. Nook Sleep is what I use in both of my kids rooms and I recommend it to anyone who will listen and probably some who are trying to escape me as well.

The custom bumpers, drapes and crib skirt are all by Carousel Designs. I love being able to perfectly match bedding and window fabric and they have so many options. Please keep in mind that Ali's baby is sleeping in a Halo Bassinest for the first few months so the nursery is for show at the moment. Once she is ready to transition to the crib they will speak with their pediatrician about the bumpers.


Most nurseries have a lot of "stuff" in them and that "stuff" tends to swallow up the space quickly, so my best friend is acrylic. Utilizing pieces in clear makes the room feel less crowded. The airy little trick worked perfectly in Ali's nursery. Both the bookcase by Land Of Nod and side table by LexMod are acrylic.

The blanket on the chair is striped and by Butterscotch Blankees. I love how you can put the baby's name, initials or monogram on their blankets. I put one in many of my designs because they are useful and look amazing placed in the room as well.

Since the floor is hardwood, Ali wanted a comfy and soft rug for her baby girl to play on, but still something easy to clean. I was drawn to this rug from Rugs USA because of the simple and subtle gray lines that complemented the space. Sometimes rugs can become the focal and it was important to find one that didn't mind being a supporting cast member :-)

How cute are those little blocks? I love the way you can choose your colors and letters. Ali & Kevin got both Mookie (her nickname) and Molly for when she was born. They're by Crafted Pine Company.  They make some other great items that are also nursery-friendly and unique and they are small and independently owned. Things made with love are my favorite to include in nursery designs!

This is probably the best photo for you to see the wallpaper by Graham & Brown. It's white textured and speckled with silver and on every wall (except the Flower Wall). It's pretty much the prettiest wallpaper ever in person.

I have a lot of favorites in this room. In fact, when I talk about them, I probably sound extremely repetitive and lacking diversified adjectives. For some reason everything comes out as cute and beautiful. Below is "beautiful". I have LOVED Blueberry Glitter's custom artwork for so long, so when this room started to come together, she was the first artist that came to my mind. I gave her the colors to use, but not much more direction than that. I believe that trusting an artist to do their own thing leads to the best results.

The stunning dresser below is another A-MAZ-ING Romina Furniture creation. I love how this dresser has a clean, modern, squared off design but the finishes can transform the overall look. The drawer fronts are scraped with flecks of metallic in the paint and those knobs are T.D.F.





Nook doesn't offer a Blush Lily Pad playmat as a standard choice, but with enough begging, I was able to score one as a finishing touch for Ali's nursery. And look, there's more acrylic. It's a play gym (also by Land of Nod) sitting on top with handmade toys, that are perfection by August Lace Designs. August Lace also makes a really cool play gym. It was not the right fit for the colors of this room, but it's definitely going into my mental tool box.
When I first saw the swatch by Best Home Furnishings that is on the glider and ottoman, I knew I needed to find a room to put it in. I do that often. I fall in love with fabrics, swatches or items and sometimes are inspired to build a room around them.

Everyone loves a furry anything. This room totally called for a pillow to tie it all together. I found this one from Odd Little Birdie and loved the size and color.


One of the hardest parts about designing a room is that I get attached to it. Seeing it come to life is extremely exciting and watching the people who the room belongs to fall in love with it makes me so happy. At the end though, it's almost hard to leave. It's what I imagine it would feel like to be a surrogate. Or maybe not at all since they are rooms filled with stuff and that's a real tiny living human - it's not at all the same, but you know what I mean.

he person who is able to capture the work for me, making it a little easier to leave and a whole lot easier to share with all of you is the incredible talented Christine Farah. She has a way of looking through the lens and not only capturing it, but making it look magical.
Since Ali & Kevin planned to use a Halo Bassinest for the first few months with Molly, the nursery is going to initially be more of a showpiece. Guests coming to visit will undoubtedly want to see the new baby's room, so it was set up like you saw above. However, once they feel Molly is ready to sleep in her crib, Ali & Kevin plan to speak with their pediatrician to make the decision on whether the bumpers stay or go. So the photos below were taken to show you what the crib will look like bumperless and I think we can all agree it's still amazing! The simplicity of the white crib skirt with 1 blush stripe by Carousel Bedding really lets the wall shine.



It was wonderful working with these two adorable lovebirds. I loved seeing glimpses of their relationship while setting up the room. They really take care of each other and listen to one another. Molly is lucky to get such a great team as her parents and I was lucky to work with them!

You can get more details about the room and see some of my other projects on Houzz. Follow me on Instagram and Snapchat at TheNessaLee for a behind the scenes look at what I am working on.

Project Nursery Deluxe HD Video Monitor Review


I’ve been looking for a new monitor for my kids for a while now. Oh, the irony in that. I am kind of obsessed with video monitors. If it wasn't totally creepy, my kids would be in college before I gave up on them. So, when I found out this monitor was coming out, I hung in there with my former monitor. “Hanging in there” included being woken in the middle of the night by signal loss. Today when my stores received their shipment I rushed over there to pick it up, along with an additional camera because I was over “hanging in there”.

It’s no secret that I like pretty things – especially baby gear. So I can tell you that this electronic and all of its components pass my test for looks. It’s sleek, clean and the buttons are positioned where they make sense. There is nothing worse than fighting to find a volume button in a dark room in the middle of the night because it isn’t in the logical place.

I love the large 5” screen. The whole point to having a video monitor is to see what is actually going on in the kids rooms, so bigger is definitely better.

In addition to the large monitor, it also comes with a cute teeny tiny little one. When I say little, I mean palm sized. It also has a carabiner, rubber watch-like strap, belt clip and wristlet strap so you can move around with the little Tater Tot of a screen. Since I opened it like 5 minutes ago, I can’t really comment on how the little one will change my life. Right now it seems cute, but I think it will probably sit in my nightstand – But, hey, you never know.

Some important things that I am excited about are:

The Infrared Night Vision – It’s ideal to seeing clearly when your child is sleeping…in the dark. You’d be surprised by how difficult this is for other companies to master. My new monitor is plugged in right now and I can clearly see both snoozing kiddos.

This leads me to the next thing. I set up 2 cameras. It accepts up to four. I love that I have the choice to pick which camera to be on or to rotate and I can pick the time it spends on each one. Right now it’s set on 15 seconds per screen. Nevermind, while writing this I got in on the split screen action. Lookin’ good.

The monitor features secure closed circuit communication. In parent speak that means you do not have to worry about strangers hearing or seeing you or your baby.

There is built in white noise, as well as lullabies by Rockabye Baby and they can be controlled from the large or small receiver. I tried it out tonight and am happy to report that each camera is independent. So if my son was into the white noise, my daughter could have nothing or something entirely different. Phew because kids preferences are definitely not created equal!

Obviously with a monitor packed with all of these great features, it’s a given that it can pan, scan and zoom. I can confirm it’s easy to do and can be controlled from either the 5 incher or the tater tot.

There's the big screen (and my kids) and the tater tot handheld too.



The range on the monitor is listed at 800 feet. Since I haven’t gone to the yard yet, I haven’t tested the whole 800. I was going to go like right now, but then I imagined the mosquito bites I'd return with and took my shoes off. #mylegsarenotsorry I am about 200 feet from the kids rooms right now and have a very strong signal.

One of my favorite things so far is the charger. It is a standard USB micro charger – same as a phone charger. So you can charge this anywhere that one of those phone chargers exists in your house. Life. Changing. On top of that it comes with 2 lengths for chargers. I dream of having long and short cord options in my life for everything - actually, I think it was cord keepers I was dreaming of, but I digress. This rocks.

Think I’m done? Not quite.

It says that the tater tot monitor will go up to 8 hours and the larger one 16 hours without being charged. Since I am like 1 hour in, I have no idea. However, if this winds up being true – I think the folks at PN should take a billboard in Times Square because us Moms seriously love the sound of that.

There’s a sensor that tells you the temperature of the room where the camera is. This was on my last monitor – I can’t lie. I never used it, but I still want it. Yea, yea. Don't judge.

If I had an extra SD card laying around I could have tested the video and photo recording. But, I don’t. I will put it on my list of things to pick up that I likely never will. So if you never get texts of my kids in their rooms from my monitor, now you know why. Sorry, Grandma (stocking stuffer?)

Now my hubs has something to say. “When I set it up I plugged the camera in like a cell phone charger and then into the wall and it was done. I saw her in her crib. It took one second. Then I went in his room and hit pair and added another camera. It took longer for me to find the stepstool to mount the camera.” <----There you have it folks. He could have given you all the details in way less words than me.
 
The monitor is $299.99 and the extra camera is $99.99. At NessaLee there is a demo set up in each store so you can try it out and the most knowledgeable staff ever to show you the ropes - but after a stellar review like this - I am pretty sure you don't even need to.

You can also purchase it online at NessaLeeBaby.com

Vanessa

New Product Alert - Jane Koos Infant Carseat - Lighest in the US

Get ready for the Fall 2016 debut of a infant car seat that is the lightest in the United States AND has extra features added for convenience and safety. So basically it's like the unicorn of car seats.

The Jane Koos infant car seat comes in at a featherweight 6.8 lbs (without the canopy and infant insert) and just under 8 lbs when you add them back in. That makes it the lightest currently available in the United States. So you've probably seen other baby products that toot their own horn about being light, except in order to get there, it usually means flimsy. Well, don't ask us how Jane did it, but they totally managed to created a feature packed seat at the same time. There are 3 layers of impact absorbing foam inside. In addition, they went above and beyond American requirements and added multi-layer side impact protection. Oh, you thought it ended there? Not even close. For convenience there is an extendable, breathable sunshade, which means you will never have to drape a blanket over your car seat to protect your baby. When it comes time to change the strap height - it's a no re-thread harness. A-MA-ZING. The base of the seat (included) features a load leg.

So at this point you are probably wondering how many Starbucks lattes with seat will set you back. $250 worth. Yup - seat, base and all that jazz above is only $250. That's about 50 Ventis.

The Koos will snap into any full-sized Jane stroller without an adapter and for families with other strollers, there will be an affordable adapter available by Jane.

The Koos will be available in-store and online via NessaLeeBaby.com. To be added to our waiting listed contact 732-431-0008 or cs@nessalee.com

Follow us on Snapchat (NessaLeeSnaps) and Instagram (NessaLeeBaby) for more looks at this product and many more!

NLB Q&A - Where Do Car Seat Returns Go?


Q - I noticed your policy does not permit used or opened car seats to be returned. Why?

A – This is a great question and something we actually take pride in. We consider car seats to be the most important product you will ever buy your child. We sincerely hope no parent has to ever experience a car crash, but if you do, in that moment there is nothing you can do for your child except be confident that the seat you purchased and installed will perform the way that it is supposed to on impact and protect your baby.

That starts with choosing the correct seat for your child’s age, height, weight and your vehicle. In our stores we have certified car seat technicians (yes, that’s a real thing and requires real training and testing – read more on SafeKids.org) to help you make that decision. On top of assisting customers in making their decision, these technicians will bring the seats to the customers’ cars to test out their fit, then walk each customer through the use of the car seat and teach proper installation of the car seat in your vehicle. This is a complimentary service that we offer with the purchase of a car seat from NessaLee Baby.

We’ve heard people say things like, “It’s just a car seat. It can’t be that hard. I don’t need that service.” As a parent, you have the right to choose everything you do with your child and we respect that tremendously, but we always want to make sure the parents we work with are making educated decisions. There are studies that estimate over 80% of car seats are installed incorrectly in their vehicles. A car seat installed incorrectly is likely not going to be as effective as it should be in a crash and in some cases can be very dangerous to the child. As parents, we can all agree that when we know more, we do better and we believe that getting assistance from someone who is trained and at your disposal is invaluable.

In other instances we have heard people say, “I don’t need your help, I can just go to the police department.” If you do decide to go to a different CPST it’s important that you check the SafeKids website. Not all police departments participate or are certified. Some are great assets and extremely helpful. However, many police departments are well practiced on certain brands and because they do not have experience with many of the seats that we sell at NessaLee Baby, they are not familiar with their installation. We have experienced some situations where that was the case and the manual was not read, thus causing the seat to be installed incorrectly. At NessaLee we are not only certified by Safe Kids, but we also have routine training with each and everyone one of the manufacturer’s whose products we sell. So we are getting the best of both in order to properly service our customers and make sure their little ones are as safe as possible.

Now back to the original question – Once a seat is open, we have no idea what happened to it. We hate to be a downer, but unfortunately some people ruin it for everyone. We recently had customers in the store telling us they enjoy shopping at a particular big box store because they can “return everything”. They then proudly told us a story about their friend who was in a fender bender. She read her car seat’s manual and saw the company requires the product be replaced if it is ever in an accident (this is very common due to stresses that can occur in the seat that are not visible to the eye – read your manual!). She opted not to put the accident through her insurance company, therefore, a replacement was not financially covered. So what did she do? She boxed it back up perfectly; even going as far as to glue the top of the box shut and sent it back for her Free Return. After her credit card was credited, she purchased a new one. We looked her friends in the eyes and said to them, “Where do you think your friends car seat went?” and they said “I’m sure all returns go back to the manufacturer.” We are experts and professionals in the baby industry and can assure all customers that returns do not go back to the manufacturer. Nor is there a magical dumpster somewhere that smells like unicorns and allows piles of expensive car seats to go that people have decided to send back. I am going to be the bearer of some really scary bad news – if a seat is packaged well and looks new then it goes back on the shelf. It sits on the shelf and waits for the next unsuspecting customer to come along and purchase it.

Oh and let's not forgot the toddler car seat one of our customers bought from a major online only retailer. During installation they were greeted by a handful of Cheerios under the cushion. Think someone was snacking in the factory? We think not.
If you're still skeptical - We recently had a Live Chat with a major retailer and confirmed the fact that returns that look good get re-sold. In addition, when making a purchase, they have no way of knowing which box was previously returned. We have also spoken to every manufacturer we do business with and were clearly told that no car seats come back to them unless they are defective and need to be looked into and tested. A car seat is a large and heavy box that can cost as much as $100 to ship.  No one is shipping that around the country for fun.

While the fender bender may not be the everyday reason for returns, the most common one is…vomit. My apologies. Gross word came out of nowhere. The problem with vomit (yuck, there it is again), well beyond the smell, is the fact that most parents panic and clean it by taking the car seat straps and washing them. If you’re nodding your head because you’ve done this before, it’s time to run to your car seat manual. Almost all manuals state that the straps should only be spot cleaned and never submerged in water. The reason given to us by the engineers is that this can break down their strength and cause them to not optimally perform in a crash. While many people would simply purchase new straps, there’s some parents out there that wash and Febreeze and then box it up….sending it back to the store looking shiny and new after it’s bath. And there it goes, on the shelf.

If you read up on car seats, experts say you should never use a 2nd hand car seat that you do not know the complete history about. After reading the above, are you 100% confident you know the entire history on a seat when a store takes returns on them?

At NessaLee Baby we do everything we possibly can to educate a consumer prior to purchase of a car seat and then make sure it is installed correctly and the child is properly harnessed. Most important, our Team makes sure that the parent knows how to take it out and re-install it properly if necessary. Our best interest is the safety of our tiniest customers.

The one thing we won’t do is take back an open car seat and we’re pretty sure that’s the reason to run right to NLB to purchase your next one.

The BEST in Baby for 2016

         




       

    At this point you’ve probably seen 10,000 different blog posts recommended to you on all forms of social media – all touting themselves as the best baby products of ABC, The Coolest Baby Products of 2015 and just about any other title to draw parents and parents-to-be in. The question is, who has the real deal? Well, if you’re asking us (or really anyone in the know) there’s not really any question at all. We’re the only one in the bunch whose team has expertise in retail, working directly with the consumers, hearing their preferences and complaints regularly, works hand in hand with the brands, assisting many of them to make the decisions for their lines and personally trying and testing the products with our own little ones. Yup, that’s why this is truly the only list that matters when it comes to baby gear and furniture. 

So let’s talk what’s the best…the best in a lot of categories because simply rating a bunch of products that do completely different things against each other is quite silly.

Best Color Added To An Already Awesome Product

Nuna Pipa in Graphite. Everything is better in gray, especially when it comes to the leading car seat for parents looking for function and fashion! (Available now at www.NessaLeeBaby.com)




Best Looking NEW Furniture For The Modern Home

Nurseryworks Novella Crib. 1, We swoon over gold hardware. 2, It converts into a love seat and we LOVE innovation. 3. Look at it. Just...sigh....look at it!
Best Looking NEW Furniture For The Traditional Home

Romina. Although Romina did not release any new styles at the show, they more than doubled their available finishes, adding everything you have dreamt about and didn’t even know was possible. Or maybe that was just us? Either way - Our team favorite? The artisan finishes with metallics.





Great NEW Basic

Kyte Baby. Every time we would walk by this adorable infant clothing brand they’d offer us a sample washcloth. We weren’t greedy enough to take more than the one the first time, but we TOTALLY should have been. After feeling their fabric, I can’t imagine putting much else on a newborn. Buttery soft and absolutely adorable? Um...adult sizes please!



Most Innovative NEW Product

Primo Baby Charli Shower Chair. We know some of you are looking at this and saying, "Huh?" But we know that we cannot be the only parents who preferred showering their infant over using the bathtub! We've been told by so many mothers that not only does it save time, but space. Some households don't even have a bathtub or an extra large sink. With so many different features like a 5-point safety harness, and infant capabilities, this is will definitely be one of our favorite products coming out in 2016. 



New Registry Must

ARC Instatemp Thermometer. No matter how many times our moms say, “Rectal is the way you always need to take their temperature”, We still have a phobia of sticking anything...ya know...THERE. We have squirmer babies and toddlers who aren't going to tolerate it. This thermometer gives you an accurate, quick, and non invasive reading with the simple push of a button! 1-2-3 easy! Isn't that what all moms want?


New Name You’ll Be Hearing

GoodBaby (GB). Good Baby has long been an internally well-known member of the baby industry because they produce strollers for some of the major brands. Last year, they launched a new division GB and are manufacturing their own goods for consumers under their brand. Be prepared to hear this name again and again because lots of new products will be entering the market in the next year. Their Pockit stroller was the social media hit of ABC, but there’s a lot more where that came from!



Comfiest New Furniture

Dutailier Relax System. Close your eyes and imagine putting your feet into the softest, comfiest slippers you own. Then think about that being a block of concrete compared to Dutailier’s new relax system. Cooling gels ease the ache on all of those tired parent muscles and the color options make it a must have nursery splurge.






Best Made In America

Castle Home just added tons of additional beautiful and luxurious fabrics to their catalog making it the most customizable nursery glider & recliner line on the market.



Great NEW holiday toy

Twin Houses Santa Monica Beach Play Mat. The colors are adorable, the concept is modern and it will bring countless hours of imaginative fun play.




New Playroom Must Have

Nook Sleep Stools. The bright vibrant colors and simple design have us going gaga over these new stools from our favorite mattress company. We love the fact that you can zip off the cover and wash it, just in case those playroom art projects go wrong.



New Diaper Bag Style

7AM Enfant Soho – At only $68 it’s a great registry item, but more important is the fact that both moms and dads will be happy to carry it. Available in Navy, Black, Cement and Kiwi. Who else is loving green right now?



Best New D├ęcor

Petal Lane - This family owned company is not only the sweetest people you will ever meet, but their products make you want to run home and re-decorate your house. This is their first foray into the baby world and it is EXACTLY what this industry needed. The customization options are incredible and the magnets are innovative. Check out how Vanessa used it in the Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis inspired nursery for ABC.



Cutest Holiday Item

Santa Cam. So we get it, Christmas is over. But, no need to scramble next year. Get it and store it with your Christmas tree now. It’s like the modern version of Elf on the Shelf because really who wants to move the Elf around daily and then forget and have your kid freak out. Anyone else? This faux camera allows Santa to see into your home. Using the App you can send your child messages from the North Pole. Brilliant and fun!



Best NEW Specialty Exclusive

Brixy Haven Crib and Dresser in Chestnut. The Haven was pretty much the furniture of 2015, so to see a new finish added that is totally on point with changing trends is great.



New Designer’s Dream

Monte Jackson Rocker & Ottoman – This is the chair a designer wants you to fall in love with because people like me have 10,000 potential rooms dancing around in our heads when we look at it. An added bonus is that it’s incredibly comfortable. Minimalist style without sacrifice.


Most Likely To Be Chatted About At PTA

Austlen Entourage Stroller – Since returning from Vegas, We've personally been stopped 2x in public by people asking what we thought about the new “suitcase stroller” at ABC. This stroller has so many possibilities, but out of all of the configurations, what we really love about it is that it’s the first luxury sit and stand to hit the market. That makes it daily awesome for all parents of a toddler and baby.



Best Personalized

Posh Play Mat – Posh Play Mats were always the go-to gift for people on our team because it’s a necessity. You will have playdates. You will go to the park. You will need a blanket or mat. Having one that looks good and is easily wipeable is a definite win. Now being able to personalize it makes it an even more thoughtful gift and also guarantees that all the other stylish mommies won’t sit on your mat when wandering back from the slide.



Best Diaper Bag Accessory

Oopsies and Uh Ohs Playmat. That’ right, we said play mat. Stick with us here. The company is new and their clothing is TDF (to die for). They do make a changing pad, but practicality and experience tells us the play mat is the better size. Since the fabric is the same, it’s an easy switch. It fill fit perfectly into any diaper bag after it folds into its pouch.



Best You Asked for it, You Got It

Halo Organic Mattress – Parents love the BassiNest, but wanted the option to add an organic mattress to it. The shape made it difficult to have one custom made. Now the company is offering an optional one. Thanks for hearing us, Halo!



Best Fusion Of Safety & Style

This is our shameless Foonf plug. We try to throw Foonfs in wherever we can in life. We realize that’s weird. However, we are mildly – or um, majorly, obsessed with the seat. Among our staff we have well over a dozen and many of us don't even have kids yet. They just released a new color called Capri for 2016. It’s a gorgeous blue that makes us think of Miami while New York is pretty chilly. Therefore, we am putting it on the list.



Projected Top Seller of 2016

Franklin & Ben Everly Crib – With it’s simple, but feminine design and attainable price point, we anticipate lots of love for this crib in 2016.




That's a wrap folks - we think this list will be very helpful for those shopping for all things baby in 2016.
