My Top Green Picks From The New York Baby Show

[Credit: Adele Enersen
Last weekend Andrew and I braved the crowds and attended the New York Baby Show along with thousands of expectant and new parents and over 200 global brands and services in attendance. 

We'd never seen so many bumps and babies in one place before, and as newbies it was certainly an overwhelming and exhausting experience. However, we did learn a few things and discovered some great products , so all-in-all it was well worth our three hours. Read on for my favourite finds from the show!

Mochi (the Japanese word for rice cake) is a technology that mixes 51% rice harvested from Japan with a unique blend of ingredients to create a 100% safe and sustainable Mochi rice-plastic. There are no toxic paints or adhesives in the products, giving you peace of mind knowing that what your baby put in their mouth is 100% green and safe. When you open the packaging, you can actually smell the aromatic notes of fresh rice grains! 

Prices range from $14.99 for a teething plate to $119.99 for a 28-piece premium set, and you can purchase directly from their website or on Amazon

2. Montikids
Montikids is a birth-to-three program based on Montessori methods, with quarterly home-deliveries of educational toys tailored to the child's stage of development and access to online videos and articles to guide you through the curriculum. All the toys undergo rigorous testing with leading third-party safety labs and have passed all US safety testing. When your child outgrows the toys, you can donate them to underserved children in low-income communities through their Giving Program

Membership costs $99/month billed and delivered every three months, with the option of cancelling anytime. 

3. Bambo Nature
Bambo Nature's eco-friendly disposable diapers are sustainably manufactured and free of harmful chemicals and all known allergens, with a unique three-layer design and super absorbent core and a fully breathable backsheet to ensure that your baby's sensitive skin will stay dry and comfortable.
