New Novella Crib and Dresser from Nursery Works

After debuting several new cribs last year, I didn’t expect to see anything else from Nursery Works for a while, so I was super excited to learn about the Novella Crib and Dresser.

Alphabuild

You can’t go wrong with anything from Kid O, but these Alphabuild magnetized blocks are the next must have.

While there are other great magnetic building sets out there, the curved pieces add a lot of possibilities, including forming all the letters of the alphabet.

Keepin’ Em Busy in the Car!

So today was the last day of school and I’m facing three months of summer with both excitement and trepidation. Travel is definitely part of the excitement of vacation and you can face it with less trepidation if you’ve got great travel activities to keep the kids busy.

Road Trip

I really recommend the great travel games from Melissa and Doug. With the pieces firmly attached to the board, you can have all the fun without the tragedy of pieces spilling out of reach on the floor. I seriously have the USA License Plate Game
and Hangman in the car with me at all times, but next I would add Travel Bingo and the Travel Memory Game. Bring these out as needed (or when the ipad battery dies)!

Baby Bibs from Make My Day

BPA free silicone bibs with a pocket AND they’re super cute… check, check, and check! Make My Day makes some of the cutest dishwasher safe bibs.  These make amazing baby shower or first birthday gifts. Here are a few of my favorites…

Buy Modern Baby Resources

I like to think we provide plenty of nursery and kids decor inspiration every week, but if you’re looking for specific items to design or accessorize your child’s space right now, we REALLY have you covered. One of my goals here all along has been to save you from the hours, days, weeks, months, etc… of web searching that it may take you to find that perfect crib sheet, pillow, clock, crib or mobile that really makes you say, “wow!” So here are some ideas how to browse all my discoveries and help you find what you’re looking for today!

First, see that nifty search box at the top of the page? I use that ALL THE TIME to go back and find things. With over 5 years of content, it’s a fast way to find specific items. Don’t forget to use quotation marks in your search if you need to narrow things down more.

Next, if you’re looking at a post and want to find more similar or related items, click on related tags to pull up other posts.

The Linkwithin plug in also helps find posts that “You might also like” and you can find those at the bottom of every post on the blog.

Beyond the blog, our Pinterest boards have great collections of items and inspiration for you to browse. Follow us or just select the boards you’re really interested in.

I’m also really proud of my etsy page where I’ve been able to curate some beautiful boards full of amazing items that I highly recommend considering.

Last but not least, the original buymodernbaby product guide is still a great place to start, especially for furniture basics. I’ll be working more on updating this through the summer to make sure I’ve removed what’s gone out of business and added my latest finds, but you’ll find links to all the great brands you’ll need to get started with assembling your perfect modern nursery.

My Modern Nursery #98: Ballerina Pink Sponsored by Lullaby Paints

This month on Facebook, I took an informal poll asking you which rug to choose to go with our color of the month, Ballerina Pink. I often like to use a rug as the color palette for a space (including in my own home), so rug choice was really going to influence the feel of the space.

Help me decide… which rug would you choose?

Posted by Buy Modern Baby on Tuesday, May 12, 2015

Well, the results were a TIE, with half of you preferring the “Soft and Muted” option, and half preferring “Bold and Bright”. As a result, I took it both ways for you! First, the one I prefer is “Bold and Bright”. I like how the pink walls aren’t what stands out in the space.

10- Flavia Flamingo- $24
Knitted Yellow Pouf- $80

Then so many of you really liked the Shapes Dhurrie Rug, so while I kept all the bones the same, the different colors of the accessories make the design completely different.
