Bebe au Lait Announces CPSIA Compliance!

The February 10, 2009 deadline set by The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) for the stringent testing of Lead Content and Phthalates in all Toy/Children’s Products has now been postponed for a year until February 10, 2010.

However, despite the revised deadline, we are pleased to announce that all products of the Bebe au Lait line (including Nursing Covers, Ultimate Hooded Towels, Double Bibs, Burp Cloths) have been tested and passed all of the requirements of the CPSIA without issue. We sincerely hope that this information gives you confidence in the safety of our products.

All Bebe au Lait products are routinely tested by certified laboratories even though there is no requirement to do so based on our product classifications.  Product safety is important to us and to our retailers and as such we have invested in having each of our products re-tested per the appropriate methods to offer consumers and retailers alike added assurance that we do and always have produced safe, reliable products.

Certificates of compliance are available at http://www.bebeaulait.com/downloads/CPSIA.pdf

What’s On Your Desk?

Instyle is a must-read. I especially like when they ask celebrities what they carry in their make-up bag. Online they have a slightly different version -’In Your Bag’: http://inyourbag.instyle.com/your_look_blog/celebrity_bags/index.html. I like to compare the contents of my Treesje bag with the likes of Ivanka Trump (she also carries around several lipglosses at once  - they’re easier to find if there are 5 of them).

Another area I am curious about is what people surround themselves with at work. I have to feel inspired by the items on my desk, I couldn’t imagine having a dull grey space.  There is always so much on my desk; fabric swatches to be approved, pantone books, magazine/newspaper articles that I need to find the time to read and the list goes on. Here is a shot of part of my desk. If I didn’t have to be away from my desk so much during the day i’d like to light some candles too. I always take a single flower from a bunch at home – one of my all-time favorites is the Safari Sunset shown here, I love that it changes color from one day to the next.

What’s on your desk? We’d love to see what you surround yourselves with!

My 3-Year Olds Can Operate an iPhone

iphone_screenshotI watched my son pick up my iPhone last week, turn it on, and swipe his finger around until he found the App I had downloaded for my kids (Firefly) and play it. I was fascinated by this because I’ve never specifically taught him to do this and I don’t really want my phone to be used as a toy. I was also kind of proud that he was so technologically comfortable. Then his twin sister grabbed it from him and ran away so I had to intervene. 

It occurred to me that there are some devices that do make parenting and family-life easier and that I rely on them more than I realized. Take the iPhone which is now loaded with five Apps for pre-schoolers that I use to keep them occupied when we have an especially long wait somewhere and I need them in one spot. My other favorite is Skype. We live many states away from our family and friends but use Skype Video Skype Screen ShotChat to check in with them at least once a week. We even opened Christmas presents to the kidlets over Skype Video so my parents could see them open their gifts. It meant a lot to all of us and made the holidays more holiday-like even though we weren’t actually in the same room with our families.
