Our Haute Mama, Gloria - Best Baby Buys

We are over the moon that our lovely Palo Alto Manager, Gloria, is expecting her first baby! Natives of Italy, she and her husband moved to the Bay Area a few years ago - and we couldn't be happier they did. If you haven't met her, Gloria is the epitome of European sophistication and style with an accent that will have you dreaming of the Tuscan countryside.


  Aside from being a rockstar manager and dear friend, Gloria is the most organized person that we (can I speak for the whole team?) have ever met and we expected her to be no less thorough when it came to making purchases for baby. She not only did extensive web searches (she looked for weeks just to find the perfect stroller!) but she even went to the library and checked out some books on the subject that provided detailed caparisons of brands in different price ranges. If you are a mom2b in desperate search for the highest rated, most practical and most chic must-have-items for bebe, take a look at Gloria's picks...because our girl sure did her research!    (This is simply a list of the items Gloria selected for her personal use and is intended to be a helpful guideline for new moms. Mom's the Word does not endorse these brands or products and we received no goods or monetary incentive for this post.)

As we mentioned, the search for the perfect stroller lasted weeks. "Light strollers, jogging strollers, travel systems...You can get lost!" The goal was to find something portable, compact and good for all terrain. The Baby Jogger City Mini GT fit the bill. A crazy amazing resource, the Car Seat Adapter Guide made it super simple for Gloria to find the correct adapter for her car seat.  

The perfect car seat was gifted by a sweet friend/customer of ours, Yvonne! The Graco Snugride 30 Classic Connect is rigorously crash tested and removable infant head support cushions ensure your wee one is snug as a bug in their car seat :)  

My favorite pick of Gloria's is the Mini Crib. Space in her home is limited and after looking at "full sized" cribs, Gloria was surprised to find that what we call "mini cribs" here in the US are actually the standard size of European cribs! She had some fun picking out some cute crib sheets...that's the fun part, right?


This compact and storage-centric changing table was the ideal pick for limited space as well. Full of cubbies and drawers, this piece can hold more than diapers and wipes.

Since Gloria and her hubby have plans to travel to Italy to see their families after Baby I arrives, the Travel Crib Light was such a perfect piece. Easy to fold up and take through the airport gauntlet and comfy and safe for baby at night and for naps. Isn't it very Euro-chic as well? Gloria also purchased the Baby Bjorn Carrier One for keeping baby close at home and while traveling. There are so many choices and overwhelming information when it comes to selecting the perfect gear for your baby, so we hope this carefully researched guide helps you to find your perfect picks as well! Gloria is wearing the Wellfleet 3/4 Sleeve Nursing Top by Mom's the Word and Rocker Denim by Seraphine.
