Modern High Chairs You Will Love!

Baby to Booster High Chair

Baby-to-Booster Bentwood High Chair in Natural by Scandinavian Child

A good high chair is an essential in your kitchen when a baby comes along.  It took a while, but a few companies realized that the high chair did not have to be a big bulky eye sore.  Two of our favorites at My Urban Child are by Boon and Scandinavian Child.
 Baby to Booster High Chair

The Baby to Booster by Scandinavian Child is a winner of top industry awards with its sleek modern design.  This high chair easily folds up to a compact easy to store and move size.  It is recommended for children ages 6 months to 5 years.  We like it best for the toddler age.  They will get so much use in their own chair that really looks like a grown up chair made just the right size for them.  Mom and dad will be happy to have the stylish chair at the table and not counting down the days until they can toss it to the curb.  The solid birch construction insures years of use that will be as beautiful the day you out grow it as the day you got it.  IT comes in three color options: Natural with lime, White with tangerine and Espresso with Almond.
Boon Flair Modern High Chair
The other favorite high chair at My Urban Child is the Boon Flair Modern High Chair.  We love the space age modern design.  This chair comes with a pneumatic lift so that you can easily glide the chair to whatever height you choose.  No more preset height positions to limit you.  It also comes with two tray covers and a removable tray that will fit into your dishwasher.  The Boon Flair Modern High Chair is available in two color options: grey with green and white with orange.

Sit on this! New ideas for your little one to sit on.

Looking for something new for your baby or toddler to play on while you try to get something done around the house?  My Urban Child has some great suggestions.  We love the Magis Dodo Modern Rocker.  Great to sit on and rock back and forth.  There are so many fun ways to play with this rocker.  You only need one, but a we like the look of a whole flock.
Combi has redesigned it's entertainers for 2014.  They have the classic car look in a multitude of colors and this one features above which is the Combi Adventure Mobile Entertainer.  We love the bright colors, striped seat and ready for action handles.

Sleeping Options for Baby

Are you looking for something different than a traditional crib for your baby.  When your baby is small it is great to have options.  One of our favorite alternatives to a crib is the Hushamock Sleeping Hammock.
The Hushamock Sleeping Hammock is made of organic cotton and comes complete with a mattress and two fitted sheets.  It really could not be easier!  There are two different options for the stand to hang the baby hammock from.  The Okoa stand is made from beautiful Euporean Beechwood.  The other alternative is the Dream stand which is made from light aluminum for easy portability. Who doesn't like sleeping in a hammock?  Your baby will love it too!

Another great sleeping option for your baby is the Cariboo Classic Bassinet.  The useful thing about bassinets is that you can set it up anywhere in the house making it easy to keep an eye on your baby.  The Cariboo Bassinet is sturdy and classic in design.

For a stylish modern bassinet for your new baby consider the Offi and Co. Nest Modern Bassinet.  We even love the name "nest" to describe your new baby's favorite sleeping spot!  The best thing about the Offi Nest Bassinet is that after your baby outgrows it you are not done with it yet.  You can convert the bassinet into a play table using the base and a toy box using the top.  Brilliant!

Imagination play anyone?  My Urban Child is pleased to announce the addition of an amazing line of play houses by Lilliput Play Homes.  These play houses are packed with details to make them truly special.  Who wouldn't want to play in a Lilliput Play Home at any age?
These distinctive playhouses are not a small investment, but that are built to be passed down for years to come.  Can you put a price on the precious memories and adorable photos you will share in your playhouse?  They are built in Pennsylvania and shipped to your house to be put together.  You can even order them pre-wired for electricity.
Duffy's Diner is a fun twist on the playhouse idea.  If your kids would rather run a diner than play house then this is the playhouse for them.  The diner comes complete with a black and white checkered floor and a booth to sit in.  You will have fun looking at all the possibilities to choose from.  Lilliput Play Homes also offers a market store, castle and firehouse.  Your child will never stop thanking you!

Not Your Mother's Glider

The glider is an essential piece for a nursery to have.  All those precious cuddle moments that will be spent there feeding, snuggling and rocking you baby.  I can not help but smile when I think back to mine time in the glider of my children's nurseries.  Gone are the days of having a big ugly glider that you use for the baby's first years and then quickly trash when they get older.  The stylish modern nursery now has options stylish modern gliders to choose from.

One of my favorites would have to be Jennifer Delonge Original Luxe Glider.  It comes in lots of fabric options to match any nursery color scheme including velvet, microsuede, printed fabrics and linen.  There are lots of ottoman options to!  I like to fun Moroccan Poufs to prop your feet up on.
Another favorite glider of mine is the Empire Rocker from Nursery Works.  This is a rocker you will move to the living room when you are done with it in the nursery.  Classic and modern at the same time.  The clean feel comes from the two color options of slate and ecru.  The details make this rocker extra special.
