While the eastern half of the country is experiencing record snowfall, some of us are still enjoying the cool fall nights and warm sunny days but in the end, the weather of the season is catching up with us and all the kids need a good coat. From plaid peacoats to toggle jackets, make sure you find a coat that is perfect for your fall and winter weather and one that's roomy and stylish enough to last them all season long!
If you missed out on the Missoni for Target collection earlier this month, don't worry there's plenty more great designer collaborations from the retail giant still on the horizon. Yesterday Target launched two new designer collaborations, Josie Natori for Target which is a 35-piece collection featuring sleepwear and intimates, and Albertus Swanepoel for Target, an 8-piece collection of hats. Both designer collections will be available for a limited time and feature the signature touches and prints that will have you looking like a million bucks for less than $50!
While the "Carrie" necklace from Sex and the City was all the rage eight years ago, now it's all about the monogram. BaubleBar's newest designs take a classic spin on the monogram and have added it to necklaces to make a charming present for just about any teenager, mom, grandmother, friend or aunt. Available in gold and sterling silver the custom monograms include any three letters or you can go for just one initial -- great for hip moms that want to wear their child's initials. The best part about the new BaubleBar collection is that it won't break the bank as each pendant piece is under $115. With the holidays coming up, I better add this to my wish list!

It seems completely impossible that a tiny newborn can totally wear out your arm during the course of a single feeding but, as all parents know, it's entirely possible. Nursing pillows that wrap around your waist can help a bit but you still bear the weight while keeping baby in a good position. So what's a weary parent to do? Try the Babee Laptime infant seat. Unlike other nursing and feeding pillows, the Babee Laptime positions baby at the ideal angle for proper digestion. Plus, the infant seat fully supports your newborn for face-to-face bonding. It's also ideal for those times when big brothers and sisters want to "help out" by holding their new siblings. To see how it all works and to learn more about the benefits, visit babeelaptime.com.
