And the first product is this gorgeous baby carrier by LÍLLÉbaby®.

This carrier can be worn in 6 different says from infancy until baby is a toddler. It is  based on Scandinavian design principals— with comfort and style in mind, and it features durable, high quality fabric and materials and is in the under $100 category.

This award-winning brand focuses on attachment parenting families that love to babywear and comes in 8 modern prints (Black with Circle of Love, Charcoal with Seahorses, Navy with Seven Seas, Stone with Boardwalk, Turquoise with Lily Pond, Stone, Stone with Anchors, and Stone with Park Place) and 7 seasonal prints (Black with Circle of Love, Navy with Seven Seas, Stone with Boardwalk, Stone, Stone with Donut, Stone with Park Place, and Stone with Fall in Fern).

We reviewed one of the carriers and discovered it was relatively easy to use the 3-way straps. They offer limit-less adjustability: carrying straps adjust in two directions in addition to the Perfect Fit Adjusters (PFAs) on the front of the carrier. The adjusters allow the wearer to find a truly customized fit and provide easy access for breastfeeding on the go.

The best thing about having a carrier is that one can shop, go to the grocers or a walk for exercise with baby in tow.

We loved that the carrier was sturdy and featured a signature LÍLLÉbaby cargo and hood pockets for storage. An attachable all-weather hood made from soft, breathable luxury mesh can be added. It provides added comfort and safety for baby during windy or cold days. The mesh is great for warmer temperatures.

Bellyitch’s Favorite Thing: Bada Boum Sleep Sack is a safe swaddling alternative ( WIN IT $45)

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.)

Bellyitch’s Favorite Thing: Personalized Children’s Books guarantee ooh-factor at baby showers (WIN YOUR OWN)

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!
