Car Seat Safety Bootcamp Breakfast with UPPAbaby-April 1st at Baby Go Round!

UPPAbaby Car Seat Safety Event, Meet the Mesa In fant Car Seat event

Join us at Baby Go Round on Monday, April 1st, from 9AM to 11AM for Northern New England’s only Car Seat Safety Bootcamp Breakfast with UPPAbaby.  You’ll learn everything there is to know about car seat safety from the experts and as a bonus you’ll meet the Mesa, UPPAbaby’s much anticipated and not yet released infant car seat.  Complimentary breakfast will be served.

Purchasing an infant car seat is one of the first and most important buying decisions a new parent makes. The market is filled with different models and price points that can intimidate any new parent. To help in the decision-making process UPPAbaby and Baby Go Round are inviting consumers to participate in our MESA Boot Camp! UPPAbaby CPS Advocate Courtney Tanguay will put consumers through the ropes arming them with the tools for selecting the right seat and tips for getting a proper installation and fit for their baby.

Courtney’s car seat safety seminar will be approximately 40 – 45 minutes with plenty of time at the end for Q&A and interactive time with the Mesa infant car seat.

  • One lucky attendee will win a FREE UPPAbaby Mesa Infant Car Seat!
  • Pre-registered attendees will receive an UPPAbaby Shopping Tote complete with Boot Camp pedometer (great for tracking walks while strolling), UPPAbaby magnetic word picture frame and UB chip clip (these always come in handy).
  • Baby Go Round will offer a complimentary $50.00 store gift certificate for a future visit with the purchase of a UPPAbaby stroller system including a MESA car seat and either a CRUZ or VISTA
  • Pastries, coffee, juice, and breakfast treats will be served

The event promises to be extremely informative with plenty of car seat safety fun!

Pre-register today for the fun, FREE event!

Zoli Bot-an innovative weighted straw sippy cup

Zoli Baby makes some very innovative products.  Not least of all the Zoli Bot 6 oz. Straw Cup.

Zoli Bot Straw sippy-weighted straw sippy cup

Why is this sippy cup even worth writing a whole post about?

The Bot is innovative in that it is a weighted straw sippy.  Unlike most straw sippy cups, the Bot has a flexible straw with a weighted bottom, allowing your child to hold the cup at almost any angle and still get the goods (by goods, I mean liquid of course).  No more frustration.

weighted straw sippy cup

The weighted ball on the end of the flexible straw follows the liquid making it easy to get the last drop.

The straw is made of food grade silicone with a weighted steel ball.  The cup, handles, and cover are made of polypropelene, which is non-toxic and notably BPA and Pthalate Free.  A built in handle and flip top cap make the Bot easy to use and very sturdy.  It looks great, too.

I know what you are thinking…does it leak?  The answer:  Most of the time, no.  Like any sippy it is not completely “leak proof” (regardless of what any label says).  I have only noticed leaking if the cup is over filled.  When I over fill it I’ve noticed  a little spill over  through the straw as soon as the top is assembled.  No big deal, I just wipe it up.

I’ve sent my almost two year old, Henry, to nap with this cup many times with no noticeable post-nap wet spots.  The Bot is our #1 go-to cup in our house.  Want some evidence?  These pictures were snapped early this morning, and as I type this he is still sitting next to me drinking the last bits of his milk from the cup with no fuss.

Henry with his Zoli Bot. Yes, it is pink (pink is punk) and yes, he is wearing Christmas PJs in June…don’t judge me Mom.

Big brother had to get in on the action. Meet Owen’s new super-picture-smile…

…which resulted in Henry punching Owen. This little brother can fend for himself!

In a few seconds, it was all good…and not one drop was spilled.

So, in short this cup is great and you should buy one.  Preferably here (shameless plug alert).

Zoli Bot available in 4 colors

Zoli Bot available in 4 colors for $12.00 each. Available in store at Baby Go Round in Hampton Falls, NH, and online at babygoroundinc.com

I would also recommend the extra straw and brush set, it’s just easier that way.

It’s baaack!! the jelly baby changing mat

The Jelly Baby Changing Mat is FINALLY back in stock at Baby Go Round, and we are so excited to tell you about it! A few years ago we sold an awesome changing pad called the Kuster Jelly Baby Pad. We never could have guessed how much enthusiasm our customers would have for a changing pad! Seriously, changing pads in general are a purely utility item and not a product or decision that parent’s to be generally put that much stock in.Jelly Baby Changing Mat by Mebby
As I said, we were happily selling a lot of them.  Then, all of a sudden, our orders stopped shipping. We called and called the distributor, added more to our order as our special orders grew, waited and waited, and…nothing. No one had any answers, where were these pads? Then one afternoon we got a call from our rep: the company has gone out of business and no pads would be coming. Kuster was a British company, so at that point there were no pads left in the US. We were so disappointed and the worst part was that we had to call and disappoint our customers who had now been waiting for months (months!) for these pads. The craziest part was that we started getting calls from all over the country from customers searching for a Jelly Baby, calls were coming from California, Georgia, Florida, Chicago…for a CHANGING PAD.

So, years have passed and we have searched for something similar to offer to our customers to no avail. Then we went to Vegas. At the trade show we visited last month we stopped into the Kastel booth (the former distributors of Kuster ) where low-and-behold we saw a Jelly Baby Changing Mat! Now made by a company called Mebby, the Jelly Baby Changing Mat is exactly the same as I remember, with better packaging (you’ve got to love that as a retailer).

Hooray for the Mebby Jelly Baby Changing Mat!
Mebby Jelly Baby Changing Pad, Kuster Jelly Baby Changer
What makes this changing pad so great? It is nothing like any other changer on the market. The Jelly Baby is made of ergonomic memory foam. The benefits of this material are that the pad grips to the changing table or dresser without having to attach it to the back of the dresser, the changing pad stays room temperature for warm comfort for your baby, the pad can be easily wiped clean, and no changing pad cover is needed! The Mebby Jelly Baby is also 100% waterproof, anti-bacterial, PVC and Latex Free, and hypoallergenic. While a changing pad cover is not a necessity for this pad, a 100% cotton changing insert is packaged with the Mebby Jelly Baby as a little bonus. The Mebby Jelly Baby Changing Mat is available in Cream, Pink, and Blue…and best of all it is IN STOCK NOW at Baby Go Round in Tax Free Hampton Falls, NH.

My Mom

20 years ago my Mom, Cindy, decided to open her own small business. In the past 20 years Baby Go Round, with my Mom at the helm, has grown and flourished and has been able to provide a job for her daughter (me), daughter-in-law (Andrea), Niece (Briana), and many other family members and employees-turned-friends over the years. She has created a truly special place where Mothers (and Fathers)-to-be can see, test out, and learn about the best products on the market for their growing families. We are lucky, we work in a great place. We work in a happy business. We owe that to our customers. We also owe that to my Mom.

My Mom and Dad


Mom, you rock.

I am lucky enough to work with my Mom on a near daily basis. I often take that for granted. My kids get to see their Grandmother almost everyday. They don’t know how lucky they are. My Mom made all that possible. She is a supportive, caring, generous, beautiful person and parent. I can only hope that I can provide the kinds of opportunities for my kids as my Mother has provided me. I can only hope that my kids will someday be as proud of me as I am proud of my Mom.

Mom, Happy Mother’s Day. Thanks for…well, everything. I couldn’t ask for a better Mom, “Cici”, or partner. Thanks for all that you do and all that you have made possible for us.

To all you Moms out there, Happy Mother’s Day. I hope you were all able to spend it being celebrated and appreciated. You deserve it.

-Jess
