The iiamo go bottle is the world’s first self-heating bottle. It won the 2009 Chicago Athenaeum Good Design award, the I.D. magazine Annual design review and the Red Dot award.

The secret to the design is a disposable heating  cartridge made up of salt and water only that inserts in the base of the bottle. Parents can easily dis-assemble the bottle for cleaning and sterilization. And as a plus, the bottles are environmentally-friendly and not made with BPA (Bisphenol-A), a harmful toxic material that many bottles world wide are made of, though some nations like Canada have banned it.

This cool and inventive bottle could be a lifesaver for many parents!

They are sold in limited online retailers including Elm Baby, a new online hub for all things baby, selling some of the top design and baby manufacturers and products made globally.

You want to get one of these to test out and help you navigate your outings with the baby! Get it at ELM BABY for $26.99, a modest price to pay to save the headache and stress of having to calm a screaming baby upset over being served cold milk!

Win it!

The iiamo go baby bottle is one of Bellyitch’s Favorite Things of 2013!!

Whether you are shopping for your teen, sister, or bestie, a cute, unique piece of one-of-a-kind jewelry you picked up from a far-off boutique or an artisan shop would make a wonderful gift.

That’s where we spotted these gorgeous hand-crafted earrings  at 3LoveDesigns on sale there for $20. We love them for ourselves but are opting to gift them to one lucky Bellyitch Reader to win and give away or keep for herself!

DAY 10

When  your little one opens up a birthday or Christmas present that is a book bearing their own name on the cover, they will beam with glee! 
That’s exactly the effect our reader reviewer ($29.95) Gabrielle had when she got her first I See Me! book. Upon opening the book, she was further delighted to see some of her family and friends interwoven in it as well. The book was illustrated so the race and other personal features of the little girl subject were indistinguishable. It could be a child with red hair or blond  hair, almond colored or cocoa or vanilla complexion skin. It had the oooh factor.

Our reviewer Jarrod was equally pleased to get his Goodnight Little Jarrod book in the mail. It was perfect for a kid who loves animals to see sheep, dogs, crickets, owls frolic and dance about in the gorgeously illustrated story book.  Award-winning artist Mary GrandPre put her stamp of approval when she drew some wonderful whimsical characters in the Jennifer Dewing-authored book. 

Stamped in the cover of each I See Me! book is the child’s birth date and a dedication.

These books would make excellent gifts at baby showers for sure! They are certain to elicit those oooohs and aaaaaahs one hears during the gift-opening portion of baby welcoming events.

Order it HERE for  15% OFF its usual $34.95 price!

Personalized children’s books make great unique gifts and that’s why I See Me’s “Goodnight Little Me” book is one of Bellyitch’s Favorite Things of 2013!

You can win your very own personalized book from today thru Sunday December 15th at midnight below! Open to US entrants only! Enter Daily!

DAY 13
There is so much controversy over the practice of swaddling newborns, the practice of wrapping them snugly in a receiving blanket to keep them calm and steady while they sleep. 
Bada Boum resolves some of the concerns about whether a baby’s body parts may be too restrictive. It is a sleep sack with plenty of wiggle room. The unisex sack, the brainchild of a French ex-pat California mom,  snaps on the shoulders and zips down, making it easy to get baby in and out. The design also accommodates quick removal for a diaper change if mom or dad wants to put baby back to sleep without waking him or her.
It comes in two sizes:  0-6 months and 6-24 months. It is machine-washable too. I
A great design and concept and that is why Bada Boum sleep sack is one of Bellyitch’s Favorite Things of 2013.
We are giving one sack away to a lucky Bellyitch reader. (and although the Favorite Things Giveaway technically ends today, we are extending the time that this sack can be won to Wednesday, 18 at midnight.)
Open to US Only. Enter  daily!
