Jessica Alba shops for her baby
Jessica Alba's baby is due any day now. so it's not a big shock that the almost-new mom was seen out and about earlier today shopping for her little one. According to People Magazine, Jessica stopped by West Hollywood boutique, Bel Bambini, where she is registered and bought some items that she didn't get at her shower.
The actress picked up items such as Born Free baby bottles, a Boppy breastfeeding pillow, a Tiny Love mobile, Sage Creek organic crib sheets and organic baby clothing from Kicky Pants and Pixie Lily. Alba, who is expecting a girl also bought baby headbands and hair clips.

The Cozy Wedge
This a neat new product. The Cozy Wedge is not your traditional crib bumper, which many new parents may find a good thing with safety organizations saying padded bumpers pose a SIDs risk and also help babies climb out of their crib. But the Cozy Wedge is different. Unlike a regular bumper, they have a safer, firm surface that won't form a pocket around a baby's mouth and nose. And they won't slip down, which makes it harder to climb out of the crib.
The shock-absorbing foam used to make a Cozy Wedge is the same foam used in swimming noodles, and is totally nonabsorbent, CFC-free and odorless. Plus they come in a bunch of cute colors, so any nursery can match. Quite a nifty idea.

We recently got a pack of Little Twig baby products and I must say, these are the best bath products EVER! They smell so fabulous and they leave baby's skin so smooth.
If you've never heard of Little Twig, they are an organic baby bath and care products company that creates items developed with the advice of pediatricians and real-life parents. In fact, parents are encouraged to take part in their online community and post their own opinions of the Little Twig products and offer suggestions.
And the love doesn't stop there. Every year the company picks a charity to donate a percentage of their profits to. This year the Everychild Foundation, a charity that benefits children who suffer from disease, abuse, neglect, poverty or disability.
To top it all off, they have a recycling program where parents can return four full-sized, empty containers the them and receive 30% off of their next online purchase. Quite cool people, yes?

See Kai Run Donation to Match All Sales Made During Month of June
See Kai Run will be matching the sale of each shoe sold in June with a donation to Soles4Souls. It’s all part of See Kai Run’s continuing campaign to share its shoes with children who need them the most.

Graco on the go
You're probably wondering what this is. Well, I'll tell you. It's a Graco Snugrider that I got while in NYC. And yes, that is the back of a taxi cab I am in. And yes, the stroller is not folded. The reason for this is because, like a fool, I packed the directions before reading them.
And so, after trying to fold it and not being able to, I had to put the whole thing in as it was. Turns out, it's simple to fold. I'd call Graco's helpline, which is very nicely located on the stroller's baggage compartment, and they explained to me that you have to push down the red button and then TURN the handle. I was justpushing down the red button.
Anyhow, it was easy to fold after that. Of course carrying down the stairs for the subway was a different story. Luckily people are nice and willingly to help. I have no idea how people who live NYC get around with strollers all the time. It was crazy.
I really recommend the Graco Snugrider. It's very lightweight and easy to carry. Any other stroller in NYC would have had me sitting on a park bench and crying as people threw change at me.
Also, I got a really cool shopping bag made for a stroller from Elodie Details. It works GREAT with the Snugrider and holds a ton of stuff. More pics of that later.
