Scarabocchi di Patipò Changing Mat and Body Set

Scarabocchi di Patipò Changing Mat and Body Set: Tiny Traveler

While baby changing pads aren’t exactly known for being cute, Scarabocchi di Patipò’s has just as much style as it does function. The roll out mat comes with a detachable pillow so that your tots don’t bonk their heads. Though a pillow may sound excessive, when you’re in a rush and lay your baby down, the head tends to touch the surface before the rest of the body (infants have giant heads for their body size).

Orbit Baby Travel Collection G2: Easy Rider

My first thought looking at this was how does a stroller cost $1,200?? Then again, I bought the Bugaboo (which was not cheap) and this Orbit has features that cover all of the annoying issues that had. There are two main components: the base ($500) and the seat ($440), which also doubles as a car … Continue reading “Orbit Baby Travel Collection G2: Easy Rider”
