Tucked discretely inside the rear cargo section of the bag is a cleverly designed 3-in-1 baby organizational system that includes a feeder pod, a changer pod, padded changing mat, and insulated bottle cover. If you’re a working mom, remove one of the pods and you could easily carry along your breast pump.

Having spent fifteen years designing outdoor clothing, Jacqueline Waggett, the creator of PacaPod, took time cycling around the world with all her possessions stored in two bicycle panniers. In her travels, she learned that traveling light and being organized came in quite handy, but she also came to realize that there was a gap in the market for great-looking and practical baby bags.
With a little imagination and business sense, Jacqueline launched PacaPod at Harrogate Nursery Trade Show in 2008. Since then it has been enthusiastically snapped up by busy parents, celebrities, and major nursery retailers.

Give the gift of good health and relaxation to a new mom this holiday season! Himalayan salt lamps have incredible healing capabilities and are really amazing for your health and well-being. When turned on, these lamps release negative ions, which help to boost your mood, improve sleep, and increase production of serotonin.

Our postpartum holiday elf has been testing this lamp for over a month, and can personally vouch for the overall improvement in mood and sense of relaxation. One of the most critical things to consider when purchasing a Himalayan salt lamp is that you need to buy from a reputable source, as knockoffs are starting to become more prevalent – and you can rest easy knowing that each lamp sold by Lamps Plus is a genuine salt lamp.

Enviro-Linen has revolutionized towels. Unfortunately, this was born out of a very serious health scare. In 2004, a contaminated gym towel left one of Enviro-Linen’s founders, Kenny Perry, fighting for his life. The towel was infected with MRSA, and in a matter of days, doctors were considering amputating his left leg. Fortunately, Kenny survived and made a full recovery. This event inspired him. Together with his business partner, they created a product that prevents the spread of dangerous bacteria. Now with Laguna Blue towels from Enviro-Linen, no one has to deal with this again!
