Mother's Intuition, creators of Tummy Honey Stretch Mark Solutions, has come up with the line of bodycare products to care for all the changes that your body goes through when you're pregnant. The Bella B Natural Bodycare line was designed specifically for the needs of prenatal and postnatal moms to help pamper themselves from head-to-toe.
The Tummy Honey Butter and Stick has long been a favorite of moms everywhere (including Gwyneth Paltrow) to help prevent and fade stretch marks. The soft, non-greasy butter is the perfect after shower belly rub and the fresh scent is invigorating!
To help ease the effects of pregnancy on our faces, Bella B has created two products - Glowing and Bright Eyes to minimize the dreaded "pregnancy mask" and ease dark circles and puffiness that is sure to occur in the third trimester.
Post-natal moms are not forgotten because the effects of baby definitely don't end with delivery. The Nipple Nurture Butter and Nipple Nurture Cleansing Pads have been created to help breastfeeding mothers. The Nurture Butter is a special blend of shea and cocoa butter that heals and soothes sore, cracked, and dry nipples. The Nipple Nurture Cleansing Pads are perfect for cleansing before and after breastfeeding. (I had my best friend test both the Butter and Cleansing Pads and she loved them.)
The best part of the entire line is the subtle scents and natural ingredients. The products leave you feeling clean and refreshed -- not greasy or overwhelming.
In addition to Gwyneth both Carnie Wilson and Tori Spelling are fans of the fabulous Bella B products!

The Skip*Hop Playspot is the modern parents answer to those snap-together plastic floor grids that you find at the discount store. Available in three stylish color combos: pink and brown, blue and gold, and brights. The Playspot is the perfect accessory for your child's play area or nursery. I bought one for our playroom in the basement and the colors are amazing!
It is constructed out of a innovated EVA foam surface which is cushy for little unstable bodies on the go. Skip*Hop has developed the system to be used for children of all ages (many other systems can only be used for kids 3+ due to the choking risks) and has tested the Playspot to the most rigorous safety standards.
With its modern design and grown up style, the Playspot will be at home in the playroom, bedroom, or even in the family room.
That night the boys decided that the flashlight was just about the best toy ever. Oooo.. look mom if I turn it off after telling ghost stories, I can make my little brother scream. Shadow animals on the wall. Big fun. Don't get me started on the fact that it was 95 degrees and we had no air conditioning for THREE DAYS!!!
So anyway, I was going through the vast backlog of email and was delighted to see this find from Coochicoos. A flashlight that can really be used as a toy without draining the batteries. These adorable LED pig flashlights don't use batteries, you just squeeze and pump the side lever for about 20 seconds to charge its batteries for 8 minutes worth of light.
Only $16 at Uncommon Goods

There is something incredibly nostalgic about the feel of the cards from Zeichen Press -- that is until you read the funny, funky messages that put a modern twist on a retro look.
The cards, coasters, and cd cases created using an antique letterpress complete with vintage printer blocks, wood type, and antique lead for a truly vintage finished product. The use of the vintage method gives the cards a layer of texture and depth that today's printers just cannot capture.
The witty messages are sure to bring a smile to your face.
A sampling for new moms include: "Eat, Sleep, Poop -- Repeat", "I'm Glad You're Having a Baby -- And I'm Not", and "Hey I Wasn't Born Yesterday - Just Kidding I Totally Was". They have a complete line with cards available to mark just about any cardworthy event. (They even do custom design work if you want something really, really unique.)
Founded by two sisters-in-law in Minneapolis. Jen and Fran have an easy rule for their messages: "I write something and if Jen laughs, we use it," says Fran.
