Stuff We Love

  • Don't Make a Stink!
    Freshaire nursery paint doesn't have the chemicals that cause fumes and deplete the ozone layer. ($35 to $38 a gallon, 66 colors; at Home Depot)

  • Night Shift
    These genius sheets make short work of 3 a.m. diaper disasters. Simply zip off the wet sheet and zip on a dry one. ($35 each set; cloudsandstars.com)

  • Jump for Joy
    Bouncing in the retro Deluxe Galloping Fun Jumperoo triggers western tunes and horsey sounds. Yee-haw! ($70; babiesrus.com)

  • The Wild Side
    The silk-screened baby-animal photos on these organic Egyptian-cotton snapsuits make for a cute yet hip look. ($36; uncommongoods.com)

  • Dream Come True
    This 60-minute CD sets womb sounds to special music to lull babies to sleep and keep them snoozing longer. SoundSleep seems too good to be true, but our testers are believers! ($20; regallager.com)

  • Soft Music
    Babies love musical instruments, but they always seem to be made of hard plastic. The squishy Little Einsteins maracas, violin, and bongos make authentic sounds but are safe to toss. ($9.50 each; at Disney Stores)

  • Royal Ride
    Silver Cross, the luxury brand adored by celebs, has created a gorgeous everyday stroller for the rest of us. The Dazzle weighs only 15 pounds and has top-notch suspension. ($299; silver crossamerica.com)

  • Irresistible Ruffles
    These 1950s-style diaper covers come in a rainbow of colors. Ideal for pictures, stealing the show at a party, or just letting her wear around the house if you need cheering up. ($17; rufflebutts.com)

  • Spencer Jones

    Perfect Present
    Need a wonderful Mother's Day idea for Grandma (or for yourself?) Simply Silhouettes uses a picture of your baby's profile to make a unique throw pillow. ($40; simplysilhouettes.com)

  • Changing Times
    The GR8X Satchel Deluxe Diaper Bag is roomy and stylish, and becomes an overnight/work bag later. We love the luxe satin lining. Available in eight colors. ($83 with Bottle Traveller, as shown; regallager.com)

  • Wipes Within Reach
    Wet Ones Sensitive Skin Hands & Face Wipes are designed to fit in your car's cup holder. On-the-go messes are no biggie when you don't have to dig around in your diaper bag. ($2.50; at mass retailers)
