When Babies R Us just won't cut it

I want to start off by stating that I do not have anything against Babies R Us. For many Americans it is the most accessible all-in-one baby Mecca. And let's face it -- it's affordable.

With that said, I spent the entire morning helping my expecting sister fulfill her baby registry at my local Babies R Us -- and I was left in a panic! OMG -- what am I going to do when my husband and I finally get around to reproducing! While my sister's traditional tastes were more than met with the store's inventory, my desire for streamlined mod prods was left unanswered.

I was most disturbed by the "bouncies" or baby loungers. They are necessary, I know that. I do not diminish their need or usefulness -- but they were not good! These little baby pods lay front and center in one's living room (typically), and I would think they could be both functional and aesthetically pleasing. For expecting parents craving modern and contemporary design, Babies R Us just fell short.

So, after hours of pastel pink and blue, I came home to my trusty computer. I began searching and found, of all things, the bouncer that Halle Berry has provided for her little one. Now, I don't believe in jumping on the celebrity bandwagon, but this it good:

I don't like all this stores but sometimes that what you can buy.
