Treat Your Bebis to Swedish-Made Baby GearAugust 31, 2017
We spend a lot of time here at Umgås talking about Swedes, but we don’t do a lot of talking about babies.
Now that someone on our team is expecting her own bebis, we’ve pulled together a dream registry full of our favorite Swedish products for the nursery, for baby and for new moms.
While moms are pregnant and through the fourth trimester, Estelle & Thild has a line of safe-to-use products, like shampoos, lotions and body oils to meet all your skincare needs. From stretching bellies to daily cleaning, it can help you out.
Once baby comes, they’ll need a place to rest their heads. You may have expected IKEA to make the list: It has everything you need to deck out your nursery. Check out its full baby product catalog online. Babies also can rest their heads outside of a crib. DockATot makes what we’ll call baby nests that help parents and their babies with co-sleeping and tummy time and transitions later in life into bigger bedding environments.
There is no shortage of products to keep your baby clothes. If you’re bored of the princess cartoon faces and the animated trucks plastered all over baby clothes, look no further than Mini Rodini. A former illustrator turned children’s designer creates some of the most unique prints we’ve ever seen on baby clothes (like this cute, albeit slightly creepy bat onesie). We also love these baby moccasins by konfetti.
You may ask yourself, “How cold is too cold for baby?” Well, we know they sometimes sleep outside in Sweden, so of course there are some great chilly fashions to keep them looking cool. Little Jalo has a variety of blankets, hats, shoes and gloves lined with soft fabrics like lambskin. Unfortunately, we can’t get our hands on these fashions in the States.
Another fashion statement to consider? Wearing your baby. BabyBjörn has a variety of baby products, mostly its iconic carriers, for parents to carry their babies hands-free.
For your first aid kit, look no further than FridaBaby, which has collection of health and wellness products from “Snotsuckers” to “Gaspassers” and everything in between.
Lastly, you’ll need to make sure you have your fair share of play gear. Disney’s Babble came up with a list of 10 must-haves from IKEA – or – you can check out Brio, which makes adorable, wooden toys (even though this pup is German, we do love a cute Dachshund for when baby turns 1).
