Bumbleride Sale going strong!

Our most popular stroller company, Bumbleride, is still offering their great strollers at a great price. With SO many stroller choices out there it can be overwhelming when it comes to figuring out what stroller will truly be the best fit. You may often hear when testing out strollers "this is the only stroller you'll need".  One thing most sales people don't take into consideration is the different needs for different lifestyles. Because Bumbleride carries a few different models they help us to offer the most perfect fit for the blooming family.

Our top selling stroller: The Indie model. It really could be "the only stroller you'll ever need". Considered a jogging stroller, the Indie also reclines all the way back allowing a newborn to stay cozy for long walks. For the quick errand running the Indie's car seat adaptor that comes with the stroller makes for an all terrain snap and go. We love the Indie, and so do our customers!

Next up: The Flite. This is Bumbleride's true umbrella stroller weighing in at 13 pounds. I personally own this stroller for when my niece makes it into the city for the weekend. She is four and we still love it. With front wheels that lock (great for navigating through snow or gravel), we are able to hop on and off the bus and subway. A great savvy city stroller. If  you are always on the go and traveling this is for you. The Flite also comes with a carseat adaptor and reclines all the way back, so you are able to use it with newborn and up.

Last but not least: The Indie Twin. This stroller has all the great features as the Indie single, with the bonus as a double. Perfect for twin's or the ever growing family of two. Unlike most twin strollers the Indie has managed to stay on the light and narrow side, still being a jogging stroller but with smaller wheels. Perfect for city living, and endless walks and runs.

Right now all Bumbleride strollers are on sale in the Spice (orange) color. We love this bright color that is neutral for boy or girl or both! Stop by grow for demo's or just a browse!

Grow and Bump Couture have teamed up to host a great maternity clothing sale. Bump couture will have their Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer lines available for purchase. Starting at 50% or greater off retail prices. Bump Couture has amazing clothing all made in the USA, their pieces can easily transition from maternity wear to post pregnancy wear. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at some of their pieces, and I'm not even pregnant but can't wait to purchase a really cute flowy top (my fav) especially paired with a great pair of skinny jeans!(maternity or not). Here are some examples of what will be at the trunk show:

The event will be this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. 10am-6pm on Saturday and 10am-5pm on Sunday. There will also be great gift bags given with every Bump Couture purchase.

The Importance of organic cotton

We often get asked at the store if it is really that necessary to buy organic clothing for your new baby, the answer is yes. While our skin is our largest organ, it is also the most sensitive and, for newborns, very absorbent and vulnerable

Clothing that is not organic is often made with regular cotton which is grown with harmful pesticides, and then later chemically treated with flame retardants and toxic dyes.

There are so many things out there that can overwhelm us when it comes to having a baby, especially their health and well being. Something so simple as choosing organic cotton is just one small step to creating a healthy environment for your child.

One of our favorite brands Kate Quinn is the solution to safe, soft organic clothing. She has a wide range of pieces that are perfect to get you through the first few month of outfitting your baby. She has a very cute line of toddler clothing as well.

Here are a few of our favorites:
The perfect cozy footie 

This Sherpa fabric is the organic option vs fleece, sherpa is breathable yet warm for these winter days

We always have customers running in for pants, these are soft and start 0/3-18/24 months, such a great basic

If you don't know by know, you will learn that kimono onesies will make your life so much easier in those first few weeks, the side snaps make is so you do not have to put over babies head, also gentle on belly button.
Sleep gowns make midnight feedings and diaper changes smooth as your babies skin. With easy access to their legs, these are a staple in a newborns wardrobe.

We love helping families prepare for this amazing adventure, especially in the most eco-friendly, organic and cost effective way possible.
