Silent Night/Up all Night?

Saturday, December 19th, 2009

At Junior Towne we know that a silent (or relatively quiet) night is one of the best gifts a parent can receive. A restful sleep can be very elusive for a new parent so we have a variety of products to help out.sleepsheep The Sleep Sheep by Cloud B has four soothing sounds to help children sleep-mother’s heartbeat, spring showers, ocean waves, and whale songs. The Co-Sleeper (both original and mini) connects to an adult bed and allows mothers to breast feed while still in bed. minicosleeperGripewater, new to the United States but used by Europeans for the last 100 years, is a mixture of fennel and ginger, helping settle little tummies on colicky babies.maternalwhispersThe world’s most pediatrician-recommended swaddler, the Miracle Blanket, combines two of the most effective solutions to calm a fussy baby: classic swaddling and the lateral belly wrap. The same company also makes a highly effective CD, Maternal Whispers, for getting baby to sleep.

So sweet dreams and good night!

Merry Christmas! Remember that we are open this Sunday from 12:30 PM to 4-complimentary giftwrapping as always!

B1023m_horseranch_closed110ilovesantaSince I have two boys, one of the fun parts of Christmas is selecting cute presents for little girls. One of our hottest brands is Haven Girl, maker of fashion forward clothing full of sparkles that girls love. We have a good selection of tops, skirts, leggings and dresses embellished with sequins and rhinestones. The Manhattan Toy Company has outdone itself with its Groovy Girl collection groovygirlwith even a nod to our Alaskan notoriety with its dogsled accessory, Mushtastic. For a little bit quirky gift, see our selection of FuzzyNation wristlets, purses and plush puppies.fuzzynationMudpie has come up with a couple of adorable piggie banks in a number of sizes to fit any pocket book.
