Oh Baby - A Modern Nursery for Triplets

Modern-baby-nursery-ideas-colors-triplets-organizing

Increasingly, design-conscious parents are looking beyond Pooh bear and princess motifs to create an environment where both they and their children feel comfortable. By selecting a more sophisticated color palette, this space can be easily updated in later years without having to be completely redecorated.

A Green, Portable High Chair

Belkiz-feedaway-1
An Eco-friendly, flat-pak, easily portable high chair is here. The Belkiz Feedaway wont be your everyday solution but it's perfect for when you're planning on dinner where a highchair wont be available. It's made of cardboard but strong enouh to hold a 20 month or 40 lb toddler.  Pretty impressive.

Travel in style

While trolling the web for interesting baby gear, I stumbled across this gem!

Samsonite
Samsonite 1

The 2008 winner of the Samsonite Baby Travel Design competition -- the Strolley. The suitcase pop-up baby seat is every traveling family's must-have. Sadly this ingenious product is not within reach -- not available for purchase (as far as I can tell!)

Modern Wall Mounted Changing Table

Wall-mounted-changing-table-1

Urban dwellers living in cramped quarters will appreciate Swedish designer Bo Ekström’s Nathi changing table, made from Forestry Stewardship Council certified birch and finished with non-toxic, water-based lacquer. Mountable to your wall at any height, where it folds open or shut with one hand, the contoured bent-plywood changing table saves not only space, but also your back. In addition to two built-in shelves for storing the preponderance of baby-related essentials, the changing table also includes a machine-washable cotton pad in your choice of mossy green or ivory.

It's great looking and obviously handy, but I'm not sure why it's $750. 

Thanks Inhabitots.
