I Bought It: Readers tell us about their CBB-inspired purchases

We know that CBB Readers love to shop via the site so we asked everyone to tell us what they’ve bought based on what they’ve seen on the site- photos, reviews, ads, giveaways, etc.

CBB Reader Maria told us:

Mariastokkexplory2I went to the Giggle store immediately after reading your review on the Stokke Xplory. This was over a year ago and my daughter (and I) absolutely love it!

The stroller is also so unique looking that every time we goanywhere we get so many stares and people "oooohing" and "ahhhhing" andcoming up to us asking questions. I just love how smooth the ride isand having the height advantage. When we go to the zoo or a museum mydaughter has a much better view of things compared to children in"regular" strollers. We also use it as a high chair in restaurants andalthough it does not fold up as easily and quickly as another type ofstroller, it is still quite simple and fits in our little Prius!

Thank you for writing about it otherwise I would have never known it existed!

Hey! I am a long time reader of your website. The first thing I ever bought after hearing you ladies review were the Diapees and Wipees. I still use it now and my son is 3!

Also I won the Cool Baby Namesbook last month (thank you!!!). I love it so much I am buying it for myfuture sister-in-law who is due in September. I, of course, told herabout your site. Keep up the good work. Love your site!

CBB Reader Zoe told us:

I have been an avid CBB reader for about 2 years now, since our son,Cyrus Mason was a toddler (he is now 3 and 1/2). I have made severalonline purchases inspired by items seen on CBB, especially since thebirth of our second child, Ruby Inez, on January 6, 2008. These include:

  • Zoerubyinadenanaisblanket2Mod Muslin Swaddling blankets from Aden and Anais. Why? I was lookingfor the perfect blankets to swaddle Ruby. These also work great asnursing covers. You can see Ruby modeling her Aden and Anais swaddlingblanket in the attached photo. [See our review here. Plus save 30% on Aden and Anais’ winter warmth swaddlers with coupon code THIRTYOFF.]
  • Tiny Prints Birth Announcements. Why? To let the world know that Ruby had arrived.
  • Baby K’Tan Baby Carrier.Why? I have been trying to find the perfect baby carrier ever since ourson was a baby, and thanks to CBB, I have found it at last. Might haveto try the Ergo carrier too. . .
  • "See Your Name in Fancy Font Wallpaper" letters from Land of Nod. Why? We wanted something pretty, but different, to hang on Ruby’s wall, and these letters fit the bill perfectly
  • Name Tag Necklace from TJ and Co. Why? I love the idea of celebrating my love for my children by wearing their names close to my heart.

I really enjoy CBB, even if it has become an expensive habit -lol!!I have found the products featured on CBB to be of the highest qualityand reasonably priced too. I have bookmarked a lot of product sites forpotential future purchases, especially clothing for the kids. Thanksfor the inspiration.

I bought the nursing shawl from L’oved baby after reading your review last year. I loved using it not only nursing in public, but privately at home as well. I used the carry case to also hold a diaper and wipes in my purse as well. My sister-in-law now uses it and loves it as well!
