Battling “birthing” hips? Belly Bandit’s 2 in 1 Bandit™ was specially designed to work with your body during and after pregnancy. While your bump grows, the band comfortably lifts and supports you in all the right places. Then, once you've delivered, it serves as a hip wrap to restore that pre-baby shape. 

Ultra-soft washcloths for ultra-sensitive areas. Miracleware’s naturally absorbent 100% cotton muslin washcloths are a favorite among moms. They’re soft yet resilient, perfect for mom and baby’s sensitive skin. Unlike terrycloth, which can become stiffer after washing, these muslin washcloths become softer and more supple with every wash. 

Feel Beautiful. Cake Lingerie has truly gorgeous and comfortable pieces that you can wear through maternity and beyond. Check out these lovely nighties that will have you feeling beautiful well past your nine months. There are also more practical items like maternity tanks that do double-duty as nursing shirts after delivery.

Have cracked, painful nipples from breastfeeding? Milkies Nipple Nurture Balm by Fairhaven Health is safe for mother and baby, containing no Lanolin or harsh additives or preservatives. Organic herbal ingredients are combined with natural moisturizers to help provide soothing relief, heal affected areas, and even prevent cracks from reappearing.

Worried about cell phone and wifi radiation? Check out Belly Armor's line of blankets, maternity tops, and even baby hats that protect your baby from everyday radiation throughout your pregnancy and beyond.  It's the gift of peace-of-mind.

Clean chemical free; get peace of mind. Created by the worldwide leader in chemical-free cleaning, Baby Care by e-cloth® products eliminate the use of toxic household chemicals while providing solutions that gently keep babies, kids, and surfaces free of chemicals and over 99% bacteria using just water. The Table & High Chair Cloth removes food collection in crevices and hard to reach areas – even dried baby food.

Have a mommy muffin top? The Mother Tucker® Tank by Belly Bandit uses a soft, tubular knit designed with three zones of varying compression. The center section with the most compression flattens your tummy, creating a slimmer silhouette. The 3-inch anti-roll bottom applies Muffinology™ technology to help smooth your “muffin top.” The top section provides the perfect amount of support.
