World Breastfeeding Week 2015
In honor of WBW (August 1 - August 7) Buggies and Babies will be hosting "Breastfeeding Mini Sessions" along with Danielle Miranda Photography.
Ms Danielle was also our photographer during our Great Cloth Diaper Change back in April and her work is absolutely beautiful!

I, personally, have participated in the nursing mini sessions in the past and must share that these images are so very precious and timeless. As a nursing mom we do not have the chance to capture us nursing but to have our photo taken professionally and so beautifully is a gift you will treasure forever!

Each session, which will last 10 minutes, will cost $30 and you will receive 5 beautiful digital images. Also Ms Danielle will donate 15% of the fee toward the La Leche League!
You must RSVP to info@buggiesandbabies.com and payment is required upfront to secure to spot.

Dwinguler Play Mat - our review!

The Dwinguler playmat has become one of our hottest selling items at Buggies and Babies! We’ve been carrying these mats for about a year now and our customers continue to rave about these amazing mats! We’ve always had one or two of the mats on display at our store so not only the staff and my own kids enjoy the mats but our customers sure did as well.

Our family recently added a Dwinguler play mat to our own home as our youngest is now at the crawling/sitting stage. We  just could not be happier with our new mat!

Why the Dwinguler playmat is awesome for the babies:

Soft and Thick – gives baby a soft, cushy area for crawling on their knees but also gives baby a safe, soft landing spot when they fall on their head or face
Large - gives baby a great big space to crawl around and play
Colorful – babies love looking at different colors, shapes, characters. It engages their senses and will illicit positive emotions and feelings. 
Educational – most of the mats are reversible with one size featuring the alphabet and/or numbers. When the mat is on this side this will create a handy tool to teach letters and numbers to your little one
Safe -  the material of the mat is safe for little ones (especially if the ill one is teething and will likely gnaw on the edges). Also because it is one large piece the baby cannot grab a small square or circle piece and chew/eat it, throw it, lose it, etc!
Fun -  one side of the mat will feature fun characters, animals, shapes or even texture. Our best selling print "Dinoland" features a fun roller coaster. In our store kids would always "drive" a toy car on the coaster track. It was a great way for the children to use their imaginations.

Why the Dingle play mat is awesome for parents
EASY TO CLEAN!!! Since it’s one large piece (rather than square pieces or little connections) it can be cleaned easily, thoroughly and fast!
Soft – if you’re a parent or grandparent with bad knees (like me) you will appreciate how Dwinguler mat is so squishy and comfy. You could (and probably will) take a nap on the mat!
Fun prints/colors – the Dwinguler play mat is available in various colors and prints. The styles are generally kid finely but in such a classy way that they will look good in your common living area. Hey, we have little ones  - our guests have to understand our flooring choices are in the best interests of our littlest ones at the moment.
EASY TO CLEAN!! I have to repeat this because with babies and toddlers there will be many spills, accidents, vomit etc on your mat. Additionally, if you’re like our family and have furry family members the faster and easier to clean up is a must have. You do not want to mix dirty paws or shredding hair in the play area. Of course this will happen.
Large – the mat is about the size of a standard room size rug (7.5 feet by 4.5 feet) so using this in a playroom or family room is a perfect fit! Other mats tend to run much smaller.
Safe – because of the thick cushy design you do not have to worry about the spills/falls/drops your baby will go through in their “moving” stages. This especially is the case if you have tile or wood floors. I also think this bodes well if you have carpet! Babies put everything in their mouths – I remember one of our older ones would actually eat the carpet, which probably wasn’t yummy!

I truly cannot say enough about the Dwinguler playmat! We’ve enjoyed featuring the product inside our store and are more than pleased to now have one in our home! I would highly recommend the mat to every other household with a ill baby and/or toddler but also preschools, indoor play spaces, day cares should consider this amazing mat!
