Dilly Baby: Making Life as a Mom EasierSaturday, 10 July 2010 by Mommy Mentor
As a parent, there is a never ending supply of products designed to make your life easier and more efficient. However, as a mom, I have a soft spot for moms with their own business. Dilly Baby is an online Etsy store run by Aimee, a mother herself, that carries a variety of hand made products that can help manage your days.
Every parent loves to have a stash of supplies that can keep their children entertained. Whether waiting at the doctor's office, entertaining them on a plane, or keeping them content while waiting for dinner at a restaurant…having a few tricks up our sleeve is part of daily life. Dilly Baby 'Artistic Genius' Traveling Crayon Cases are adorable cases that are fully lined with contrasting print, made of 100% Cotton, and feature a 3x5 note pad and five crayons that each slip into their own pocket! I keep them in a special place so they are only used when we go out to eat or are waiting. They love it that it is their very own, they share pictures, and just this last week started making pictures for each other. They are very compact, measuring about 4" x 6", a great size that fits just about everywhere. I can toss them in my handbag or stick them in my Ju-Ju-Be Be Quick, aka "My Bag of Tricks", that I take out to restaurants. The Crayon Cases velcro shut so even the littlest of kids can enjoy being completely independent.
Dilly Baby also has Change 'N Go Changing Sets that is truly a must have accessory for any parent. The Change 'N Go holds 2-3 diapers, a wipes case, and an included changing pad all in one compact case. The change pad is also wipeable (we all know how essential that is…) and the case itself can be tossed in the wash if it gets dirty. The double-reinforced velcro closure and carrying strap finish off this cute little number.
If you need to carry just a few more diapers, the Diaper Wristlet can fit that need. It is just a tad larger, can hold 2-4 diapers, but also has room for wipes, diaper rash cream, and those tiny extras that you need. You can carry it by the strap, hang it from your stroller, toss in in your diaper bag or handbag, and always feel prepared. And it makes a trusty travel companion…
And if your little baby has transformed into a little girl, she will surely love a First Messenger. It measures about 6x8" and is worn cross body. Since all Dilly Baby items are handmade, you can have the strap lengthened for an older or taller girl. The velcro closure offers ease of use and just imagine how cute she will feel! This is a great age to start teaching kids to carry their own belongings as well so it is a fun way to encourage some independence.
While these products can surely help you as a mother, they will also help others! Whether a baby shower or a gift for a friend, they will surely be appreciated. The children's products also make for great birthday presents or stocking stuffers.
