So, let's talk about the TOP 20 Best-Selling Items at Nesting that will make your parenting life so much easier. These are tried and true products that Nesting customers have expressed their undeniable LOVE for. They work. I know they work. And, I'm not getting paid to endorse these awesome items that you NEED. Right. Now.
# 20 | Cloud B's Tranquil Turtle
My aunt bought us Cloud B's Tranquil Turtle when my firstborn arrived in 2013. It was as popular in the world then as it is in our home today.... which I guess is a weird way of saying it's been a chart-topping award winner continuously since at least 2013-- and for good reason, too. The calming melody and sound waves has been known lull my babies into oblivion and can event put this mama to sleep, too. (Not that's it's hard.) As I write this, my son is almost 5 and he and his toddler sister still drag the Tranquil Turtle inside every single one of their pillow forts.
# 19 | POP Pacifier
The clever cleaner pacifier has recently made a big splash in the industry since their product was showcased on Shark Tank this fall. And, it has also made a lot of Nesting parents very, very happy. Why? Because every time your kiddo thinks it's hilarious to throw this POP pacifier on the ground, the nipple pops back into its built-in protective silicone bubble so it stays clean. Simply engineered. Simply awesome.
# 18 | Puj Tub
Puj is simplifying parenthood with their incredibly durable and highly rated portable bathtub that cradles and protects baby. Its compact shape allows it to fit into a suitcase for travel as well as a pedestal and counter top sink so parents don't have to bend down or kneel for bath time. It is made of a mold and mildew resistant, non-absorbent material that is free of BPA and PVC.
# 17 | Bamboobies' Reusable Nursing Pads
This is no secret that Bamboobies has created a stellar nursing pad for moms. Their award winning, discreet heart shaped and super soft reusable nursing pads were my absolute favorite when I was nursing. Pregnancy Magazine has dubbed them the "cashmere of nursing pads.' I love them and so do Nesting mommas.
# 16 | Bebe au Lait Petit Wet & Dry Bags
Wet and dry bags, snack bags, cloth diaper bags... whatever you call them, they are a Game Changer, Friends! Trust me when I say you need several, in several sizes, labeled for several reasons. My personal favorite are Itzy Ritzy's snack bags because over time, the inner lining just seems to get softer. I feel like they just get better with age... like a fine wine, which I also really love. However, my customers seem to gravitate towards the Bebe au Lait Petit Wet & Dry Bags instead. These petit popstars have the added bonus of having a pocket for dry things like crackers, pacifiers or hair ties, plus another pocket for wet things like watermelon, lipstick or wet wipes. Honestly, you can't go wrong with either brand and I really mean it when I recommend you have a million of them.
# 15 | Hevea's Natural Rubber Star Ball
You've probably heard that plastic is kind of bad for you, right? All the experts are now recommending parents switch to glass bottles for their tiny tots which is better for our health and better for the environment. The problem is, is that glass bottles are heavy and difficult for our tiny humans to hold onto all by themselves. So, let me introduce you to Hevea's star ball which is perfect for tiny developing hands and fingers. The star shapes allow baby to hold onto the ball all by themselves, thereby being able to hold a glass bottle without Mom fearing it will drop, either harming baby or breaking on the floor. Then, it turns into a totally fun toy when bottle feeding is over.
# 14 | iPlay Suction Plates and Bowl
Do you have a champion plate thrower? Bowl thrower? Messy everything-er? If so, you need to start investing in some table service that suctions down so your kiddo can't pick it up and chuck it-- or so Fido doesn't knock lunch over-- or whatever. We carry the iPlay brand at Nesting for several reasons. Firstly, its an affordable alternative to some of the more mainstream, and pricier brands. Secondly, the suction cup on the bottom covers the entire plate or bowl making it incredibly hard for kids to peel it up by themselves. They are dishwasher and microwave safe and are a huge hit with toddlers learning how to eat as well as specials needs kiddos and adults, too.
# 13 | Itzy Ritzy's The Boss Backpack Diaper Bag
Hands down, backpack diaper bags are the way to go. They are incredibly functional, versatile, trendy and Dad's typically prefer one over a traditional shoulder bag. They are a must-have for moms, allowing you to carry all of your essential gear hands free. The Boss Backpack from Itzy Ritzy is a particular fave around Nesting. It comes with stroller straps, the widest zipper smile we've ever seen so there is no "bottomless pit of doom;" it has 26 pockets, the cutest changing mat ever labeled for head and toes, and so much more. Oh, and did we mention how chic the
herringbone pattern is? So cute!
# 12 | My Brest Friend Nursing Pillow
A favorite of lactation counselors because it provides incredible back and arm support, it is also super popular at Nesting, too. It includes a buckle latch to keep it snug against your body if you happen to move around and a super convenient pocket for stashing snacks. We love that it allows for the most support for newborns so you can truly be tummy to tummy without baby falling down into your belly hindering his ability to latch correctly. And, we all know what bad latchers feel like! Super Ouch.
# 11 | Oogiebear
Stop picking at your kids' noses. I know you do it. Oh, and stop sticking your finger in their ears, too. It's dangerous! And gross! Nesting has a better booger and ear tool for you. It's called the Oogiebear and it's been flying off the shelves since we brought it into the store last fall. It's perfect for the crusty stuff and weird stuff. And, since it was designed by a doctor you'll be glad to hear it's much safer than Q-tips and whatever else you are discreetly using.
# 10 | FridaBaby's Boogie Wipes
These moisturizing nose, face and chest wipes by FridaBaby are the best. They are made with calming ingredients like chamomile, aloe and Vitamin B to soothe tender little noses and sensitive skin. In addition, the all-natural menthol and eucalyptus offers maximum comfort for cold and flu season.
# 9 | MotherLove's Diaper Balm
How many awards do you think this diaper balm has received? We don't know; we lost count! This awesome balm soothes persistent and inflamed diaper rash, redness and irritation; it is gentle and effective and even safe for cloth diapers. Not only is it highly effective on diaper rash, but it can also be used on mother's nursing nipples. MotherLove uses ingredients that are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial that can combat thrush and diaper rash yeasts.
Earth Mama has packed so many moisturizers into this awesome buttery, botanical-rich, lanolin-free and non-sticky salve. It has been a crowd favorite at Nesting since we opened our doors, and for very good reason. Our suggestion is that you keep it in the fridge and start applying six weeks prior to delivery.
# 7 | Cake Maternity's Rock Candy Nursing Bra
We are no longer surprised when women ask if they can wear this bra out of the store instead of the one they came in wearing. The Rock Candy is just that spectacular. This luxurious, seamless, oh-so soft nursing bra is a best seller and comes in five colors fitting sizes 32B to 40H. This is the go-to bra for third-trimester mommas, the hospital go-bag bra, lounge at home visitors-please-go-away bra, and the reluctant go-back to work bra.
# 6 | Baby K'tan Baby Carrier
The Baby K'tan is a Nesting favorite for premies, newborns and toddlers up to about 26 pounds (maximum limit is 35lbs). This baby carrier is one of the easiest to put on, most comfortable and breathable baby carriers we've ever tried. We especially encourage skin to skin baby wearing in the early days at home, when your baby is sick, if you are experiencing problems breastfeeding, if you are strengthening the bond with a special needs or adopted child, and to give your significant partner a chance at bonding, too. The Baby K'tan is especially ergonomic, has been acknowledged as a hip-healthy carrier and allows super talented moms (I am not one of them) to carry baby, walk around, nurse and chew gum all at the same time.
The Windi is the most effective, INSTANTANEOUS solution we've found to help babes get over gas... you know, like the pesky tummy bubbles that keep them screaming in earth shattering pain at night? The Windi is completely safe, doctor-invented and the only natural instant solution for gas relief. It's also super gross and allows parents to level up in ways they never imagined possible.
# 4 | Serene Living's Lavender Essential Oil
100% therapeutic grade Lavender essential oil is a top seller at Nesting for so many reasons. It is our work-horse essential oil and can be used for for a limitless number of incredible things: from soothing your sweet babe to sleep, cradle cap, diaper rash and ear infections, to acne, eczema, itchy bug bites, and so on. The disclaimer here is that we encourage you to do your in-depth homework before ever using essential oils on you or your family.
The name says its a teething necklace, but these little beads of amazement help relieve so many ailments in babies, toddlers, teenagers, adults and seniors. Everybody needs one! These therapeutic, natural anti-inflammatory bracelets and necklaces help with growing pains, menstrual cramps and sports injuries, arthritis pain, carpal tunnel, sciatica, headaches, acid reflux, heart burn, colic and the list goes on and on. In addition, we now carry an assortment of baltic amber necklaces and bracelets with lava rocks on them for use with your essential oils.
Take action before you start experiencing sleep deprivation, please! The Zen Swaddle has been a best seller, month after month after month, and for very good reason. This life-bringer works. Without getting into the nuts and bolts of it all, this swaddle tricks your baby into thinking you are still holding him even after you've long since laid him down in his nice little crib all by his nice little self. Take back your nights, momma! You'll notice your baby falling asleep faster, staying asleep longer, and sleeping better through the night within the first few days of use. Trust me, I love you so much and I would not steer you wrong!
# 1 | FridaBaby's NoseFrida
Our number one, best selling item at Nesting is hands-down the best nasal aspirator on the market right now. Many of the doctors and physician assistants at our local hospital prescribe the NoseFrida to their patients as part of their treatment plan for infants and children under the age of two. One of the best an easiest things you can do for your sick chicklet is to keep their nasal passages clear of mucus and the most effective tool is the NoseFrida. It's the coolest, grossest, best thing ever.
