Eco-Friendly Crib By Offi: It’ll Cost Ya


I’m a sucker for picking out the most expensive items in the market today. I was browsing baby cribs when I came across this simple beauty. It’s the Bebe 2 Crib from Offi, a well-known eco-friendly brand in the chic world of baby items. It’s birch and non-toxic, but it will put you back about $1,500. Is it worth the price tag? I’ll let you decide…

Here are some of the hip features that make parents swoon:

  • Natural Baltic Birch Ply and White Non-Toxic Painted MDF and Solid Birch
  • Wood finishes may vary slightly from color and grain shown in image sample
  • Meets or exceeds US Consumer Product Safety Commission requirements for full size cribs (ASTM F1169-03)
  • Works with Bebe 2 Rolling Cart for Crib (sold separately)

You can find the Bebe Crib and other amazing Offi items at BabyEarth!

Meet The Revolutionary, Borosilicate, Baby Bottle


It’s time for a little science lesson… Do you know what borosilicate glass is? It’s the exact same type of glass used in laboratories due to its superior strength, durability and resistance to exploding into a zillion pieces. (It helps if you picture a mad scientist laughing maniacally.) It’s also much lighter than the glass typically used for baby bottles.

The smart folks at Coddletime have created baby bottles using this borosilicate glass. Tada! These award-winning bottles are the ‘next big thing’ in feeding since WeeGo. The list of benefits is pretty impressive:

  • Extremely resistant to high heat and breakage
  • Lightest glass baby bottle on the market
  • Anti-colic
  • Soft, wide and stretchy nipples mimic breastfeeding action, preventing nipple confusion
  • The semi-transparent food grade silicone bottle wrap protects from scratches and allows for easy viewing of contents inside
  • Non-toxic, BPA, lead, PVC and Phthalate free
  • Microwave and dishwasher safe
  • Winner of iParenting’s 2009 Best Product and 2009 Hottest Product awards
