As you eye the other contenders, there’s no doubt about the odds-on favorite to win. Sitting pretty behind the wheel of your Roddler, the hot rod for toddlers engineered by Kid Kustoms, you and your little tyke are the clear frontrunners. Those lines. That chasis. That automotive grade aluminum. Look up “aerodynamic” in the dictionary and the Roddler is sure to pop up. A fully loaded model includes an iPod dock, Bluetooth with speakerphone, a DVD entertainment system and, arguably best of all, a trike package that will transform this high-octane stroller into a customized tricycle once your little Dales and Danicas are ready to roll on their own.

Well, just imagine how your toddlers feel about their bibs. As great as they look at first, most bibs go from eye-candy to eye-sore faster than a speeding Bugatti Veyron.

Of course there is…it’s called the Double Reversible Bib from Bebe au Lait. This bib comes in ten styles and features not two but, count ‘em, four clean sides – which means cuter meal times for baby and less loads of laundry for you. Yay! Available at bebeaulait.com.

You can tell a lot about someone’s experience with babies by the way they rock a crying infant. Those who use the side to side technique certainly mean well, but you can pretty much bet that they learned everything they needed to know about babies from watching Uncle Jessie on Full House. As any mom who’s ever pacified a red-faced yeller knows, it’s that up and down motion that really does the trick. But it took the Swedes to recognize that this technique will also work when simulated by a hammock. Ergo, the Mawok, the first baby hammock that rocks up and down. The Mawok relieves the pain of cramping stomaches, helps them sleep, stimulates breathing, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. This wonder bed is new to the US market and only available in limited supply, so if you don’t want to miss out, you’ll have to act fast.

With Sama Baby Luxury Organics, you don’t have to be a millionaire – or a French hipster – to dress your kids like one.

Okay, so the baby didn’t turn out quite the way you expected. Sure, everyone said they all come out looking like their daddies – nature’s way of reassuring the father and all – but here it is, three years later and the little beauty is still the spitting image of dada. Talk about your harumph moments. While you wouldn’t change a thing about the cutest moppet to ever don a pair of Pampers, you can do something about that twinge of envy you feel each time some passive-aggressive tells you the fruit of your loins and hard, hard labor looks just like daddy. That something is Mommy and Me Couture from Shirin Kids. This line of haute-quality children’s tees is not only fashion-forward, but each piece also comes with a grown-up version for mom. Your look-a-like styles will be so engaging, no one will ever notice the resemblance to Papa Smurf again.

Best of all, the Smock Top comes in a variety of vintage-inspired patterns and is thoughtfully reversible – so she’ll remember it forever because it’s so charming, and not because it’s in every other baby picture.
