bumGenius Display

Here's our submission for the bumGenius contest! Read below for more details about the contest.

We had a lot of fun creating it. The idea was my mother's! (So, Mom, you won 6 diapers!)

Come stop by the store to see our Tree with falling bumGenius leaves -- just in time for fall!

Blue and White diapers make up the sky. Green diapers are the leaves and grass. Golden leaves are falling off the tree. Pink flowers. Even birds made out of diapers!

The Ergo hip carry

Ok, I know I've poo-pooed the Ergo hip carry for those who asked. But actually it's not really that bad at all.

We went to the Maryland State Fair today. My baby needs to see what's going on. I LOVE my Ergo, but the one fault I have with it is the baby can only face you. So he sits in the stroller most of the time and when he gets antsy and wants to get out, I put him in a carrier. But I felt bad that he had to keep turning his head to see what was happening. So I tried the hip carry.

It actually worked pretty well. I was happy with it. It's not as great and supportive as a front and back carry, but no one-shoulder carry is going to be. So I take it back. The Ergo is great for hip-carrying too!

Actually, here's what the Ergo website says about the hip-carry: Parents have expressed a great deal of interest in wearing their baby in the hip position. During the younger stages of your baby's growth, this is a nice alternative position between front and back, before your baby gets too heavy.

So anyway you roll it, a one-shouldered hip carry is still inferior to a fully supported 2-shoulder carry. But for those who need it (like me!) it works!

Happy Anniversary Soft and Cozy Baby!

Wow! Can you believe it?! We've been open a year now!

I'm looking for creative ideas of how we can celebrate with our loyal customers.

Our current promotion is buy any 12 diapers and get a FREE box of BRAND NEW bumGenius detergent!

If you have any ideas of other anniversary specials, please let us know!

New Showroom

Come check out our beautiful new showroom! I love not being in the dining room anymore!

Actually, there was nothing really wrong with the dining room - except for a 15 month old who believes that everything looks much better on the floor... And he still believes that! We just dont spend as much time in the store anymore so that things can stay where they belong!

Designers are still welcome to make comments and adjustments -- it's always a work in progress! (Says the uncreative store owner...)

Hope to see you soon!
