Where Has Your Bebe Been?

[slideshow id=28]

A fun opportunity to share photos of your little ones with a chance to win a free award-winning Bebe au Lait Double Bib!

We put so much creativity and consideration into each one of our products that it is always a joy to spot them in use while we are out and about outside of the office. For instance, my first sighting was while biking a local Bay Area trail. I nearly fell off my bike to turn around when I passed our Blomst Nursing Cover being used as a sun-shade over a stroller. Another time I was heading into a favorite local coffee shop where, sitting directly outside the entrance on a bench as cars whizzed by behind and pedestrians strolling the sidewalk passed in front, a woman was nursing her baby beneath our Kimono Nursing Cover. At that very same shop a few weeks later, the owners of Bebe au Lait came across a group of three new mothers who were all seated around a table chatting while nursing their babies beneath their Bebe au Lait Nursing Covers. Finally, one of our employees is taking night classes and a classmate pulled out a Kensington Nursing Cover during a lecture to nurse her baby!

We would love to see your photos of you and your little one using our products! Photos will be posted here on our blog or in one of our Facebook photo albums and everyone who submits a photo to “mindy at bebeaulait dot com” between March 18 – April 18 will be entered to win their choice of either a Papillon or Valencia Double Bib. The winner will be chosen at random and contacted on Monday, April 20, for shipping details.

New Year, New You!

Following tradition, the new year is the preferred time to make significant changes to your life. It all sounds so good: “I am going to lose weight!”, “I am going to finally get organized!”, “I am going to spend more time with my family”, and so on and so on. Unfortunately, keeping these resolutions always turns out to be more difficult than you intended.

Bebe au Lait looks at the new year’s resolution struggle, and what you can do to make sure you keep your resolutions for life. Continue reading

March of Dimes Babies Love Soccer, Too!

If you’ve had the opportunity to check out our “about” page, you may have realized that we’ve got quite the talented international soccer player running the show here at Bebe au Lait.

Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, our CEO, Ronnie, began playing soccer when he was just six years old and ultimately played professionally for more than 18 years. Hard work and natural talent led him to win several notable awards with the teams he played for, including twice winning Major League Soccer’s (MLS) Championship, being honored as an MLS Pepsie Best XI player, and a Major Indoor Soccer League (MISL) Best XI Player. Ronnie also held coveted field positions for the Danish National Team and their Olympic Team. Today, in addition to overseeing the day-to-day finances, operations, and senior management of Bebe au Lait, Ronnie also holds the position of Technical Advisor of the San Jose Earthquakes for the 2008 season.

Coincidentally, it just so happens that in addition to a genuine love for great design and our products, many of us here are also soccer enthusiasts and are loving the March of Dimes commercial below.

I actually spotted this ad for the first time over this past weekend. Clever and cute, I immediately thought it captures what Ronnie and Claire are all about: nurturing growing families, healthy babies, and playing soccer!

Baby Shower Idea: A Sanctuary of Celebration

I just finished looking through the June/July FitPregnancy (the one with the gorgeous Jessica Alba on the cover–she’s also a Bebe au Lait user!) and was really struck by a great idea on the last page (144)

“In: Birth Blessings. Out: Baby Showers”

Regardless of mom’s religious beliefs, it offered the idea that the shower is really for mom, not just baby. They encouraged giving mom “offerings” of personal notes of advice, encouragement and quotes and explained that mom offers her guests a bracelet meant to be worn until the baby arrives. The mom they featured said, “A birth blessing really makes you stop and think about the fact that you are going to become a mother.”

This gave me many ideas for a shower I’m planning. I’m going to meld a beautiful, traditional baby shower with this advice and create a sanctuary of celebration, so to say. Since my friend is a serious yoga-girl, I’m going to have the guests dress comfortably and bring in a yoga instructor to take us through a relaxation exercise instead of playing any shower games. I plan to decorate with oranges and cool blues (baby is TBD) and place white orchids throughout the setting. I’m going to provide healthy, organic snacks and cupcakes (ok, those aren’t going to be healthy, found a great recipe from Sprinkles in LA) and have each guest read their blessing to the mom-to-be and then enclose them in a large envelope for her as a keepsake. I think we will all enjoy the chance to relax, reflect and celebrate in a modern, peaceful way.
