Pitts stick with Graco

Brad Pitt was spotted carrying one of his newborn twins into a hotel in Germany last night. Once again, the Pitt family has stuck with the Graco Snugride car seat for their babies. Shiloh had one too.

Saved by a swaddler

Gwen, Gavin, Kingston and baby Zuma headed to Gwen's parent's house in the OC. Little Zuma was almost seen for the first time, but an Aden + Anais Mod Muslin Swaddling Blanket saved him.

Medela Freestyle

We recently reviewed Medela's newest breastpump, the Freestyle, and here is what we found. If you have never heard of the Freestyle, it's the first rechargeable, hands-free, double-electric breastpump ever made. Sound cool? Well it is. It weighs less than a pound but is still powerful enough to empty both breasts simultaneously. And of course, it is hands-free. So you can type on your computer, talk on the phone, or do whatever you need to do while pumping.

So how does it work? The pump comes with bra adapters and straps that connect the pump to most nursing bras. Medela actually has a video on their site that shows you how to this. Once the pump is attached, you simply turn it on and there you go. No need to sit there and hold it on your breasts.

There's also a waist belt that allows the tiny pump itself to be clipped on to you, so you can get up and walk around while pumping. And now let's talk about the pump. It's got a light-up screen that's perfect for pumping in the dark at night. It's got a rechargeable battery that allows for 3 hours of pumping time per charge. It's got a memory button that allows mom to save her favorite pumping pattern for ease and efficiency for the next pumping session. It's got a built-in timer, a battery symbol to let you know how battery you have left, and screen display of the level you're pumping at.

And of course it has Medela's Phase Expression technology that mimics a baby’s natural nursing pattern and empties both breasts in about 15 minutes. All that and it ways less than one pound. Pretty amazing. And if you don't believe us, read about it over at BRU where's currently at a 5 Star Rating in the reviews.

Valco 2009

Valco has two new strollers coming out, one of which actually just came out and that would be the Latitude. It's Valco Baby first light weight full service stroller. It has full recline, compact fold, and allows a car seat to be attached. The stroller includes a rain cover, a boot cover, a front bumper bar, and adjustable handle.

It also comes in a twin. You can put a car seat adapter on one side.

The Matrix will be out in March. It's got a three position lockable swivel wheel, an unlimited EZ recline system, a mesh airflow seat, a compact fold, a link brake system and a bassinet attachment(although that's sold separately).

Valco also has a highchair coming out but there isn't a set date for it yet. It converts into a booster seat.

What to Look For: Diaper Bags

Tags: Diaper Bags
Alastair Macpherson/Splash News Online - Mary-Louise Parker with daughter Ash and Fleurville's MothershipDiaper bags used to be utilitarian but now they're a fashion statement in and of themselves. I just returned from The ABC Kids Expo, a maternity/baby/kid gear tradeshow, where the trends point more and more to diaper bag as glorified purse. So why not just use a purse or tote bag? There's no reason you can't (many moms do), but you may find that a diaper bag has the pockets and features that are more suited to toting specifics for baby.
Like strollers, you'll find that your needs change so be prepared to that this first diaper bag purchase is not your last! In the beginning, you'll feel like you need to bring everything but the kitchen sink because small babies require a lot of stuff on the go: diaper changing stuff like diapers, wipes, a changing pad, cream, etc., a change of clothes, burp cloth, and for bottlefed babies, bottles, formula or breastmilk, and all of the accompanying acoutrements. As they get older, they require different stuff- solid food and sippy cups will replace the bottles and pacifiers.

Before you register for or buy that diaper bag, read our What To Look For guide on choosing a diaper bag.

Tigerpixx/Flynet - Jason Priestley's wife Naomi Lowde Priestley carries daughter Ava and Bumble Bags' Madeline backpack
According to Ali Wing, of giggle, and author of the new giggle Guide to Baby Gear, when shopping for a diaper bag, there are quite a few factors to take into consideration. First, what basic style do you prefer: messenger bag, backpack, and over-the-shoulder. Then consider the following:
Comfort is key. Look for cushioning and adjustability, especially if you're sharing the bag with someone with a different body type. Also, Ali reminds us, "plan for the fact that you won't need to carry as mich as your baby grows from infant to toddler... when you have a newborn, you're usually carrying the baby and the bag; when you have a toddler, you're usually carrying the bag and chasing the child."
Will this be one among many bags? Some people, Ali says, "consider the diaper bag an accessory, and want to have several to choose from, just like their handbags."

Easy cleanup. Ali says to avoid bags that can't get wet or dirty, and look for bags that are either washable or wipe clean easily.

Are you using cloth diapers? Unlike disposable diapers, cloth diapering requires hanging onto the dirty diapers the rest of the day instead of throwing them out so your bag can be as heavy or heavier as when you left your home. You may need a bigger bag than you originally thought.

Are you a parent of twins or do you plan on having another baby soon after? If so, you'll want a bigger bag because "multiples means some of your supplies must multiply too," says Ali. She also points out that parents of special-needs children often find they have more to carry along and will probably need a bigger bag.

Style. This is your new purse and you'll be carrying it with you whenever you go out with your baby. Now's the time to indulge a little and choose a diaper bag you'll be happy to carry with you day in and day out.

Also, remember that the diaper bag is your diaper bag, not your baby's. Just because you have a boy doesn't mean your bag can't be pink and girly. After all, you're the one carrying the bag, not your son! That said, Will you be sharing with your partner? If so, he may not want the bubblegum pink bag you think is so cute.
Bauer-Griffin - Jennifer Garner preferred North Face Recon daypack to a typical diaper bag
As we mentioned, diaper bags come packed with features, but you may not need all of them. Here are some features to look for, but not all are required.
Cargo space. Are you a pack rat or a minimalist? You won't need a huge bag if you just carry the bare bones, but if you like to carry everything with you, you will definitely need a bigger bag. If you're not sure how you'll be, Ali advises that, "what you prefer in handbags will bear a lot of resemblance to what you'll like in diaper bags. Do you tend to overpack or travel light? Do you have one great bag or lots of bags to mix and match with your outfits?" Our Ciaran adds, "if you are a heavy packer, bag weight is a bigger factor so weigh the bag because if you carry a lot of stuff, a heavy bag is going to be a real drag."
Changing pad. Most diaper bags come with one, but the luxe ones are often more padded. If you don't love the one your bag comes with, you can always buy another.
Insulated bottle holder. If yours doesn't come with one, and you will be bottlefeeding, you can usually purchase a separate one.

Easy and quiet access. Avoid complicated latches and loud Velcro closures that can wake a sleeping baby. We love magnetic closures but they do add to the overall cost.

Stroller compatibility. Will it hang from your stroller or fit in the storage basket? If not, you'll need to carry it. Many strollers nowadays come equipped with stroller straps so they attach to your stroller but you want to make sure that the stroller will never tip when it's attached.

Pockets. Many pockets make a bag easier to organize but not necessarily easy to locate things. External bottle pockets are nice to keep baby's bottle or sippy cup handy, and you can even tote your own water bottle in it. Some bags also have pockets made with waterproof or antimicrobial pockets to store wet or yucky things. Ciaran adds, "if you are someone who likes to change bags a lot, you might prefer a clutch over a bag with tons of pockets. If you bring your own organization to a bag in the form of pouches, you will probably not need as many pockets."

Parent compartments. Quick access to your cel phone, wallet, and keys makes finding your stuff easier.

Halle Berry's nursing loungewear from Larrivo

Tags: Breastfeeding , Clothing , Maternity
by Ciaran
Add Halle Berry to the A-list list of celebrity fans of Larrivo nursing wear.The actress recently contacted the company to tell them how much she loves their comfortable tops and gowns. She specifically told the company, "Thank you for making breastfeeding as sexy as possible."
Other celebrity fans of the Larrivo line include Elisabeth Rohm, Constance Zimmer, Courteney Cox and Rachel Weisz, who said of the line,

I wore Larrivo all through my pregnancy and then after my son was born. The designs are fun and funky, and the clever snap tops are so practical for nursing. The tanks and dresses are indispensable, as are the stretchy pants.
Larrivo nursing garments offer serious comfort without sacrificing style. The high quality tops, pants and gowns are comfy enough to sleep in but also presentable as daywear. They are so easy to wear and their styling literally makes nursing in them a snap - just unsnap the hidden snap at the strap. Their camis and gowns are also extremely supportive, allowing even more well endowed nursing mamas to go braless.
I first discovered this line while pregnant and wrote about it in a Celebrity Baby Blog Bedrest Style article. Larrivo made me feel fabulous while I was expecting and has been my absolute favorite to wear since having my baby. I'm with Halle on this one. If ever there is a time that a woman needs a well fitting and comfortable (and figure-forgiving) garment to feel beautiful in, it is in those first few months post partum when breasts are tender and your shape is changing. Check out all the many gorgeous fabric choices on the Larrivo site.
