UPF 50 Protection

There is a global trend to add UPF protection to fabrics in clothing and gear. The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) measures the UV protection provided by fabric and is like the SPF ratings for sunscreens. A fabric with a UPF of 50 allows only 1/50th of the UV rays to pass through it.

Joovy has introduced this technology to the canopy of the Balloon for the best protection of your baby.

Feature 1

The reversible handle allows you to stroll facing baby while newborn babies are comfy in the bassinet-like seat. With its deep recline, adjustable footrest and foot enclosure, the seat easily transports baby while napping.

 

Feature 2 (1)

Do You Have A Child That Is Afraid of Something?

child-1099770_640We 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Be honest.

JOOVY ANNOUNCES the Boob™ PPSU #BabyBottleLove GIVEAWAY

FB-Timeline2

 

 

Register to Win Daily, Weekly and $1000 Grand Prize

WINNERS POSTED AT THE BOTTOM OF POST

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.

Pregnancy & Newborn: On the double with the TooFold

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.

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.”

Get A Grip with the Joovy Hook: Pregnancy & Newborn

The October issue of Pregnancy & Newborn features picks for best seats in the house by their parent panel. By ‘best seats’ they mean top choices in highchairs for mealtime. Included in their coverage is our own Hook.

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

From the article:

Hung up over how to make room for a highchair in your already crammed kitchen? You’ll fall for these options hook, line and sinker.

Small but mighty

Joovy Hook, $70, joovy.com

“The Hook features ‘deluxe’ leatherette fabric,’ which is actually really nice and wipes like a dream. The seat is roomy (more than 10 inches deep) and lightweight (just over 5 pounds) – not bad for a seat that can hold diners up to 37 pounds!”

Pregnancy & Newborn, October 2015

We’d like to add that the Hook comes with it’s own travel bag and is available in orangie, greenie and black. Perfect for day trips, travel and use at home. Check it out here!
