DockATot


Award winning invention releases three new cover patterns in the United States.

DockATot is a simple, elegant solution for multitasking parents who need a safe spot for their little ones anywhere, anytime. The unique shape and design of DockATot allows baby to comfortably chill, play, rest, snuggle, log in tummy time and get diaper changes.

Designed in Sweden in 2006, made in Europe and launched in the U.S. in 2015, DockATot baby docking stations provide the ideal hygienic microclimate for babies, with a feel that mimics the womb. All materials used are sourced from top-quality suppliers, tested and proven free of harmful substances.

The company makes the DockATot in two sizes and are lightweight, portable and created with traveling in mind, with rail-like sides for safe, sweet dreams for children transitioning into a bigger bed:

  • Deluxe+ – the ultimate docking station for babies’ ages 0-8 months old or 5-22 lbs.
  • Grand– provides a snug spot for little ones ages 9 to 36 months

In January 2019, three of DockATot’s stylish new cover prints will be available to consumers for the first time. For a modern touch, DockATot is launching two Buffalo Plaid styles in natural and charcoal, as well as a new Black Marble addition to the Stone collection. Far from décor du jour, Buffalo Plaid and Stone are contemporary designs that exude a sense of luxury and will stand the test of time. The new styles were recently unveiled at the Kind + Jugend Show in Germany and will be available at fine retail stores nationwide and on DockATot.com.

“Love and luxury have been exhaustively incorporated in the design process, with my own children in mind.”

Founder Lisa Furuland Kotsianis was inspired to create something new in the baby and children’s industry when my first son was born. “We believe that every baby deserves to be surrounded in a comfortable environment every day of their lives,” she says. “There is simply nothing else like it on the market that allows mothers to feed, soothe and bond with their baby.”

Thanks to the perfect marriage of style and functionality, DockATotⓇ has become increasingly in demand by parents around the world and has won many awards, including the prestigious British Junior Design Award, “Best Of” The Bump and “Most Registered Product 2017” from Babylist.

Bloom Kids Essentials


They’ve got kids’ backs … and their bottoms (hee-hee)!

The business of children’s underwear demands attention, especially for the girl who can’t abide creeping, pinching or shifty undies. The folks at Bloom Kids Essentials provide girls with top of the line, eco-friendly underwear that stays put. They’ve been making comfortable kids underwear since 2009 and launched this new organic line in 2017.

Made from the softest organic cotton for the ultimate in comfort and function, Bloom Kids Essentials are a sanity-saver for parents who’ve endured tantrums and fits, and for kids who go commando because they can’t stand the skin-crawling discomfort of regular underwear. With flat-lock seams and smoothie-soft waistbands, these undies “cater to the discerning tush that appreciates a wedgie-free existence with unmatched comfort and state-of-the-art design.” Kids seem to agree.

“It’s like wearing fluff on my butt.”

            -Qynne, 4 yrs

Mainstream fabrics can be full of harmful ingredients, so the softer-than-soft organic cotton, eco-friendly dyes and water-based inks used to manufacture Bloom Kids Essentials keep it good for the environment and great for your kids – with comfort, sustainability and style to boot. Less chemicals equals healthier bodies, after all.

Mummy’s Miracle


All-Natural Baby Skincare Miraculous for Baby’s Sensitive Skin

Mummy’s Miracle is an all-natural line of skincare products like no other. The handcrafted and sustainably-produced baby products are the first to use Moringa oil.

What is Moringa Oil?

Moringa oil comes from the seeds of Moringa Oleifera tree, which grows in Africa and parts of Asia. Rich in phytonutrients and anti-oxidants, moringa oil offers a variety of benefits when used in skincare, such as skin purification for an anti-aging, healthy glow. Its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties help skin heal, and its fresh fragrance and moisturizing power makes it an ideal hoice for use as a natural hair cleanser for all ages.

“For years, I searched for a toxic-free skincare regimen for myself and my babies but found none,” says Ify Chuke-Nwobi, founder of Mummy’s Miracle, which she formulates in 2010 after she discovers the power of Moringa. “The more I learned about the harmful chemicals in synthetic cosmetics, the more passionate I became about bringing conscious consumers a natural alternative that actually worked.”

After making her own body creams and oils that combine a cocktail of essential oils, Ify starts using her “potions” on herself and her children – with remarkable results: their skin retains its smoothness, softness and suppleness. It even glows.

“I found my potion so moisturizing and hydrating, I had to find a way to help other mums who were looking for a natural and safe alternative,” she says. Ify collaborates with a chemist and together they create a moisturizing, soothing and hydrating formula with botanicals featuring the miracle Moringa seed oil, known today as Mummy’s Miracle.

Mummy’s Miracle is the world’s leading natural Moringa-based skincare line that includes wash and shampoo, lotion, ointment, oil and vapor rub for baby as well as products for Mom like anti-aging Moringa oil, stretch mark lotion and nipple balm.

Mummy’s Miracle products are made from all-natural ingredients, including the best Moringa seed oil there is, raw honey, shea butter and purified water, as well as essential oils, vitamin E and more, depending on the product. The fast-growing company follows stringent production standards to ensure the products are completely all natural and free from any chemicals or other pollutants. They always put the customer first.
