Lifestyle and parenting expert, Sherri French is here today with some great gift ideas for guests, as well as smart hosting ideas for the best shower experience for everyone!

Philips Avent

Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle with Natural Response Nipple - $29.99 for 4 pack

  • Based on over two decades of expertise and research into the physiology of breastfeeding and the way a baby drinks, Philips Avent developed this brand-new solution to support combination feeding. 
  • The latest innovation in bottle-feeding mimics the breast not only in shape and feel but also by letting the baby control the pace of milk, just like they do when breastfeeding.
  • The unique opening and tip only release milk when the baby actively drinks.
  • Therefore, when pausing to swallow and breathe, no milk flows.
  • By releasing milk only when the baby actively drinks, this bottle lets babies use their natural feeding rhythm.


SideKick Plus 3-in-1 Hip Seat Carrier - $99.99

  • The SideKick Plus 3-in-1 Hip Seat Carrier makes carrying easier and more comfortable for both parent and child, featuring a unique, two-piece system and three carrying modes that offer a variety of healthy sitting positions from infant through toddler.
  • Mode 1 is the infant carrier that allows you to carry the baby hands-free, Mode 2 easily secures the infant carrier to the hip seat for extra support, and mode 3 is just the use of the hip seat, perfect for toddlers.
  • Thanks to its multi-functional design, the SideKick Plus can be used independently as an infant carrier and hip seat so two caregivers can each carry a child.
