We are thrilled to say that Jana is a fan of Joovy. Here she is with the PPSU Gift Set that she received at the shower.

We all have something or many things we fear. I am afraid of sharks and am certain that if I go into the ocean, a great white will find me. To handle this, I simply stay out of the ocean which is an easy solution. Avoidance of something you fear is not always possible. Panic overtakes me when I think of flying and travel is part of my life. If you are sitting next to me on a plane you will see me grasping a charm with my eyes closed and reciting a prayer for the first 15 minutes of the flight. My faith also helps me with my fears about my children getting hurt or making good decisions. As we get older we learn how to deal with our fears (or not) or to bury them very deep.
It is a different story for our children. Childhood fears are developmentally normal. In a way they help to keep children safe by causing them to avoid some dangerous situations. From a very young age children can be afraid of a broad range of things from darkness, toilets, monsters, being alone, animals, some movies, separation, strangers, bad dreams, to weather, to name a few.
All of my children have been afraid of things from germs to darkness to strangers. Our recent struggle is with our daughter who is afraid to go downstairs to her bedroom alone; even for a moment. I have to admit, I was beginning to get frustrated with her fear. I needed to get to the bottom of it so I sat down with her to have a conversation. She began by telling me she was afraid of scary things. Digging a little deeper, I discovered she was afraid of a bad person, a stranger in her room. She had seen a show on TV where this happened and had started to dream about it. Now she says she thinks about it whenever she is alone in her room and especially when it’s dark. That night when it was time for bed, we looked in closets, under beds, in the garage, and in the hall closet near her room. I showed her that there were no strangers in any of those places. We made sure there was a flashlight by her bed if she needs to come to me at night. I am hoping this will help her to overcome her fears but realize it may take time and more steps.
Here are some general steps to help your child with their fears:
- Acknowledge their fears are real. Do not tell them that monsters are not real or that there’s nothing to be afraid of in the dark. Tell them something about your own fears.
- Do not make them feel ashamed of their fears. If you discount their fears, they may shut down and not share with you. You do not want them to be embarrassed.
- Share stories of fairy tales or heroes. Read them an age appropriate book about characters who overcame their fears. (As a starting point, try looking at the chapter on courage in The Book of Virtue: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories, ISBN: 0-671-68306-3, since it contains some selections for different ages with good introductions to each selection.) Watch a movie together that deals with putting fears to rest, maybe Monsters, Inc.
- Be honest.

DALLAS, Texas (November 2015) – Joovy announces a social media giveaway for the popular PPSU Boob Baby Bottle to drive registries at BuyBuyBaby and Babies R Us.
The innovative bottle is a favorite of babies and parents alike because of its superior nipple, vent system and bottle materials. Those who register for the PPSU Boob Baby Bottle Gift Set at partner retailers Babies R Us and buybuy Baby are eligible to enter the contest which starts November 12 and runs through midnight, November 30. Registries can be placed online or in the store. A grand prize of $1,000 of Joovy products will be awarded on December 1. Weekly drawings for PPSU Boob Gift Sets will be drawn on November 16, 23 and 30. Additional prizes include daily PPSU Boob bottle giveaways as well as Joovy gear to those who are already using the Boob and share a photo on their Instagram. Follow the contest at #BabyBottleLove and #PPSUBabyBottle. Complete contest details are available HERE.
In 2013, Joovy introduced the PPSU Boob Baby Bottle. This superior bottle is made of Polyphenylsulfone, an incredibly durable material that has the best properties of glass and plastic and offers consistency in the feeding experience. This medical-grade plastic is used in hospitals and can withstand repeated sterilizations at high temperatures without changing the composition of the material. Because of this, it is the perfect material for baby bottles. Moreover, like glass, PPSU does not absorb stains or odors. Like plastic, PPSU is durable, impact-resistant and lightweight.
Venting in bottle technology is important so that baby gets milk or formula rather than air while feeding. When baby ingests air they can get gassy or ‘colicky.’ A venting system regulates airflow into the bottle, allowing baby to continue sucking without having to take a break. The CleanFlow™Vent system is an integral part of the Boob Bottles. This quad vent system offers consistent venting, no matter how the bottle is held. The CleanFlow™Vent is a one-piece vent that is easy to clean and reassemble.
The nipple of the Boob Baby Bottle is shaped deep and wide to offer babies a latch similar to when they latch at the breast. The nipple a soft, yet firm, which helps prevent nipple collapse, a frustrating experience for feeding babies. Molded flow rates in the nipples offer consistency so preemies, babies and toddlers have the perfect amount of liquid for a satisfying feeding experience.
In support of breastfeeding moms, Joovy has introduced the Naturally Nood Nipple. This innovative nipple has the same shape as the original nipple with the addition of wrinkles, bumps and a mock areola because texture is also part of a consistent experience for babies. The Naturally Nood nipple is designed to help “difficult” transitions from breast to bottle.
Babies have voted and they love the PPSU Boob and their parents do too, “Love these bottles! Lightweight & amazingly durable. Super easy to assemble, wash, use, & our exclusively breastfed baby transitioned well to these. We did have to purchase a set of fast flow nipples, but that’s with any bottle purchase. Wish I found these before trying all the more “popular” brands.” (Amazon, October 2015)
Millennial parents are actively searching for products that are not only friendly to the planet, they want products that offer high functionality and, most importantly, are safe for baby. They are willing to spend a little more to get the very best product available. The Joovy PPSU Boob offers a bottle made of superior materials, a vent system with state-of-the-art technology, and a nipple babies love. Together these components offer baby the best, most consistent feeding experience in a bottle system that is up to their expectations.

The November issue of Pregnancy and Newborn is chock-full of of great pregnancy advice and good information for moms and moms-to-be. Their ‘Good Gear/Road Test’ feature, On the double, highlights some double strollers the team at P&N feels important to take note of if you’re in the market for a double stroller. We are thrilled that the Joovy TooFold has been included. The TooFold is Joovy’s ‘all-terrain’ stroller that has amazing functionality as a single, double and stand-on tandem.
On the double: Searching for a set of wheels that can transport multiple tots? Read more
P & N has dubbed the TooFold “Joy Ride” and says, ” Multi-purpose is the best word to describe the TooFold. It’s a single stroller with a built-in sstanding platform that can be flipped out of the way when not in use. Add a second seat (sold separately) if both passengers want to sit, or attach the huge storage bag for extra cargo capacity. We love the rugged adaptability.”

Featured in their Get A Grip section of ‘hook-on highchairs’, the Hook in orangie is shown ‘front and center’.
From the article:

I am a mom of 2 kids ages (2 yr. and 6mo.) and just started using the Boob Joovy bottles for my daughter about 3 months ago when I had to return to work for 12 hour shifts. Prior to me finding the Boob bottle, I tried Dr. brown, Playtex, Avent, and Tommie Tippie with no success of her latching on. We even had some trouble with the Joovy boob until I saw the natural nood nipple and I decided to try that. This has been the only nipple that she latches onto every time. It has made me feel better about going to work, knowing she will take her bottles easier while I’m away!
The nipple has similar features of the Tommie tippie that I used for my son, however, it doesn’t collapse and has a unique texture at the base.
The customer service was great when I encountered an issue with my bottles leaking.
