happy. healthy. travel.

Spring Break may be over, but summer vacation is just around the corner! We understand how daunting travelling with a baby in tow can be, so we’re here to help!Perfect for families on the go, the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light is our pick for portable cribs. Super-light weight, with a cushy foam mattress and easy set up, it’s no wonder we love the Travel Crib Light! It fits easily in the overhead bin of an airplane,  pops open and is ready to use in a matter of seconds. The absolute best feature of the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light: it’s completely washable! Everything, from the mattress protector to the carry bag — even the crib itself! — is machine washable!

If you’re leaving on a jet plane, pediatricians recommend giving your baby a bottle or pacifier to suck on to help equalise middle ear pressure. We recommend pacifier clips and pockets to help keep baby’s binkies clean.

New toys are great for long distance travel. We love simple puzzles and books for little ones: they’re easy to pack and quiet. One of our favourites for infants is the Double Bubble Maze. The suction cups stick to any smooth surface, which makes it a great toy for your highchair back home! And don’t forget a baby-friendly photo book for your little tourist!

Stop by giggle Corte Madera and stock up on our travel essentials to ensure that your vacay will be off to a great start!

Spingtime Is Almost Here!!!

Spring is on its way and its time to get ready for the sun.  It’s important to protect sensitive skin.  Cover up your little ones with swimwear that does double duty.  You get a built in swim diaper (required at all public pools) and sunscreen in the fabric!  All our mix and match items from trunks, to hats, to rash guards have UPF 50+in the fabric. 

For those spots that can’t be covered there are sun blocks in different sizes and types of application.  Need wipes or sticks for those hard to apply areas?  Want an economical family size?  Need a little higher SPF for extra fair skim? You’ll be sure to find the one that fits your needs.
