Giving you the 411 on the best brands out there!
Macaroni Kid editors across the country are hosting baby brunches in February to introduce some great new baby products from five fabulous Macaroni Kid sponsors! Here's a sneak peek of the latest and greatest that you've found for you.Bottles and Cups That Easily TransitionThe Bebek® Bottle is designed to be a natural extension of you. It offers stress-free feeding, which means you relax and your baby thrives. This 8 oz. bottle has rapid venting, which releases air bubbles into the bottle, not your baby’s tummy, significantly reducing gas, colic and fussiness. It has a wide-base nipple (more like mom) for easier latch and transition. It’s also comfortable for you and your baby to hold, and it's BPA-free.When your baby gets older, the Bebek® Trainer Cup promotes a smooth transition from bottle to cup. The soft spout is gentle on teeth and gums, and its unique handle is easy to hold from any angle. It’s expertly designed not to leak, is dishwasher-safe and made without BPA. Babies 6 months and up can use this 5 oz. cup.Awesome Activity CentersThe ExerSaucer® Triple Fun™ Life in the Amazon is made for your little monkey! It includes a playmat, stationary activity center, and activity table for extended use as your child grows.

The wide-surrounding tray on the activity center brings toys closer to your baby, and it has Take With Me Toys™ that can be easily removed for fun and learning anywhere. We love how it folds flat for convenient storage, has a 3-position height adjustment that grows with your baby, and includes a carry handle to make traveling easy. This activity center is for newborns to approximately 24 months—so your little one will enjoy it for a long time!The ExerSaucer® Jump & Learn™ Jungle Quest features a brand-new modern design, with extra jump and stability.
