#2 Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Safety Tub and Bath Ducky Set
The suction cup allows busy parents to hang dry the product after bathing the little munchkin safely and comfortably in the padded cradle that can be used in the bathtub or in a sink.  The patented White Hot® disc on the bottom of the duck alerts parents when the water is too hot for baby’s delicate skin – the blue disc turn white and reads “Hot” when water is too hot for baby.

How this helps older bro/sis: Big sibling can learn that babies need to be cared for and cleaned just like them.  They can help mom by blowing up the inflatable cradle and assist in bathing baby too!

Why kids go gaga: Big kids will like the fun pink and blue varieties and will be amazed by the White Hot technology – how’d that cradle get to be so smart???  Baby will be comfortable and loving life, in the padded and SAFE cradle

#3 Chicco’s new feeding line, the NaturalFit Advanced Feeding System, which is set to launch in January, exclusively at buybuyBABY.com The NaturalFit line includes everything from the NaturalFit bottles and pacifiers to nursing pads, to teethers and a wide variety of feeding accessories. The entire line is designed for easy transition from breast to bottle for both mom and baby, and the three-stage bottle system is engineered to be responsive to the changing feeding styles of babies as they grow (e.g., infants are not born with the ability to suck, which is why Chicco’s Stage One NaturalFit bottle has a unique angled nipple with a slow flow).

How this helps older bro/sis: They can HELP with the baby’s FEEDINGS!!!

#4 Munchkin ‘White Hot’ Duck Bath Toy
Determining the safe water temperature for a child’s bath can be frightening for parents, but with Munchkin’s Safety Bath Ducky bath time will be worry free. These collectable duck characters have the special White Hot® disc at the bottom that alerts parents when the water is too hot to handle, then lets them know when it’s just right to bathe. Babies love the huggable size, and since it’s watertight, it won’t sink or mildew.

How this helps older bro/sis: Big sibling will realize a new addition isn’t an alien to the family and that they probably are interested in toys like baby too, because with this ducky kids of all ages will enjoy!!  Now big bro/sis can have fun playing with baby’s toys and know they’re not that different from the new kid on the block!

Why kids go gaga: Again, kids old and young will love playing with these duckies!

#4 Munchkin Dangly Buddy Teethers and Car Seat Toy,Colors Vary

When traveling, simply hook this friendly-faced buddy on the carrier bar of the car seat and sit back as your child giggles for hours watching the neck retract and vibrate as the arms see-saw back and forth and the body vibrates.  With these buddies (available in a giraffe and frog characters), children can learn cause and effect while on the go with mom.  Great for children of all ages.

How this helps older bro/sis: Big sibling will see that babies enjoy fun, squishy toys too and will find enjoyment in their new sibling’s curiosity and will love giggling along with baby!

Why kids go gaga: Baby will be transfixed by bright colors and bright body.  Who doesn’t love giraffe and frog stuffed animals?!
