[slideshow id=29] I recently attended a lovely baby shower in honor of my friend who is expecting her first baby (a little girl!) in early May. Old and new friends along with several generations of both the mom- and dad-to-be’s families (who flew in from out of state!) celebrated the occasion with some lively games, a champagne brunch and plenty of “ooohs!” and “awwws” as each gift was revealed.
I guess I’m getting to that age where I’m actually becoming quite a seasoned veteran attendee of baby showers. Though, for as many baby shower games for which I’ve participated, I’ve yet to win! I do have a few favorites, however, that I’d love to share along with a few new ones which I was introduced to last week. If I’ve missed any of your favorites, please feel free to comment with yours!
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

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.Read More
In the spirit of the Holidays, I like to make at least one uber-indulgent dish to share with family and friends. This year’s dish is a risotto made with one of the world’s most exotic and luxurious ingredients: the white truffle. For recipe and instructions…Read More
