I just love visiting Sommer at her store, Saf & Benjamin Baby Boutique. She is so personable and service-first – some of the best service I’ve had at a baby store. Service is so important to me when shopping, so I really appreciate this about her and the culture of her store.
We’ve been planning some future Modern Mama events together lately, so I’ve had some time to get in some good chats. During a recent visit I asked Sommer about her top 5 picks from her store, and here they are !
3 Sprouts organizers
One of the store’s top sellers, these storage bins from 3 Sprouts are both adorable and functional. The bins are large enough to hold many toys, while the diaper caddies are a nice size to hold your essentials and carry room to room. They brighten up any nursery!
The Zoli Sippy Cup
The genuis behind the Zoli Sippy Cup is the weighted base for the silicone straw. It means no matter how the cup is being held, your child will sip it all up! My son uses these sippy cups and they’re great. During my last visit at the store I noticed some newly-arrived OXO feeding supplies and I hear Boon is coming soon.
The Belly Bandit and Mother Tucker
This is a top seller for moms looking to get their pre-pregnancy shape back. It’s a belly wrap that you wear under you clothes and helps tighten & shrink your tummy. I have never used one, but apparently customers keep coming back for them. The Mother Tucker is a compression tank with the same features as the belly bandit.
Cybex Carrier 2 Go
Sommer tells me this is THE baby carrier to get now, taking the best of the well known Baby Bjorn and Ergo carriers, and putting it all together in the Cybex Carrier 2 Go. Your baby is kept in an ergonomically safe position, and can face towards you and away from you. It’s hard to keep this one in stock so contact the store to get your name on the waiting list.
